Word Count: Approximately 49,500 (ARGH)

Pairing: Merlin/Arthur

Rating: NC-17

Summary: Arthur is an Oxford Blue. Merlin is an Oxford cox. Lancelot is Merlin's romantic-dalliance-loving friend. Morgana is horribly clever; Gwen is cleverly waiting for Lancelot to grow up. Merlin and Arthur rub each other the wrong way, at first, but it soon becomes clear that Arthur is a university-class rower with a world-class heart (yes, I typed that). Clichés ensue.

Notes: January 09-September 09. Uh... fun ride, everyone?

First of all, an immense thank you to [ profile] nicolasechs, without whose prodding and guidance this could not have been completed. She did everything, from pointing out typos to providing assistance in deciding how to structure this story. She was there when it was born, ugly, in my brain, and she was also there to receive my "MOTHERFUCKER YES!" ((c) [ profile] ifyouweremine) message when the last word was coded.

I must also thank [ profile] puckling, [ profile] _la_la_la, [ profile] pennyplainknits, [ profile] cellophane_ria, and [ profile] green_grrl for sanity stabilisation measures, the Dirty Cantab Troop for friendly and encouraging jabs, and, of course, [ profile] woldy for her invaluable assistance. [ profile] ras_elased, what's a high without a five?

[ profile] arlad, [ profile] phantomjam, [ profile] meredyth_13 and [ profile] lilith_lessfair ran me to the finish line on this, because I had eaten too many oatcakes and had an oatcake-related leg cramp.

All remaining mistakes are very much my own.

This was written for [ profile] harlequinmerlin; thank you, [ profile] mklutz, for organising it.

The story began with [ profile] phantomjam's birthday, and ended with [ profile] skyebanshee's. It is therefore for both of them: very many felicitations for you both, and thank you for helping to make sure this got finished.
