Fiction by Syllic, organised by date of completion.

Easy There
(Jan-March 2009 (WIP, to be completed shortly))
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.

A Very Serious Business Story (March 2009; Merlin/Babysitters' Club crossover. Er.), ~8,800 words. A direct result of [ profile] nicolasechs's "Wishlist of Crack":
1. Gwen/(Claudia) Morgana goodness; 2. SURFING, including but not limited to, Arthur teaching Merlin how to surf and making fun of how pale Merlin is. And/or beach volleyball; 3. Nimueh seducing Arthur, which leads to MISUNDERSTANDINGS between him and Merlin; 4. Merlin rescuing Arthur from certain doom from each of the mothers (all of whom have a vendetta against Uther or the Pendragon family or some such); 5. Lance/Arthur BONDING (but not in a bad touch sort of way); 6. Merlin gets tipsy (WARNING: underage drinking), and there are confessions; 7. MAGIC; 8. UNICORNS; 9. RAINBOWS; 10. The kids put on a show! (May or may not lead to complete abandonment of morals and flouting of sexual mores, etc.); 11. Aforementioned kid kits of awesome by Merlin and Arthur and Gwen and Morgana; 12. And finally, narwhals, AKA THE UNICORNS OF THE OCEAN.

Three Tasks
(December 2008), ~30,600 words.
Arthur is the Royal Arbiter for Suitable Suitors' Disputes. He (and his trusty companion, the golden-dragon-tasselled hat) alone can determine who is fit to woo royal servants and other assorted courtiers in Uther's court. (In light of the preceding sentence, the following may not appear to be a truthful statement, but: not as cracky as that makes it sound. Really.)
In Part One: Arthur arbitrates a dispute (with heretofore unforeseen wisdom); Merlin observes. In Part Two: in a Rather Predictable Set of Events, Merlin becomes the object of a Suitable Suitors' Dispute. Arthur attempts to arbitrate. This time, he does not do so well.

Fyrgearwunga (Materials for a Fire)
(December 2008- (WIP))
Some sort of exercise in re-imagining tragedy, at the end of Camelot, with a view to making it--well, not tragic.

okay this might be a tad presumptuous but i LOVE your story Three Tasks but for some reason - and I'm not sure why and I've checked back over several days and it never changes - my browser only shows me part of each chapter. I was wondering if you could email me the story if you don't mind because I've been wanting to read it again for ages and i haven't been able to :( :( :(

if you're willing, my email is would be fantastic, but i also understand if it would be too much of a bother. thanks so much!

Oh, gosh, it would be no bother at all--I'm thrilled you want to read it and would be happy to send it along.

My hard drive unfortunately imploded after I finished writing Three Tasks, so I do not have a hard Word copy of it anymore, though I do have a .pdf of my livejournal around somewhere. I'll pick out the relevant pages and make you a file this afternoon, if that's okay.

LJ drives me mad sometimes--I've been thinking about archiving my stories somewhere in html format, but I've yet to find a home for them somewhere on the interwebs. I shall renew my efforts, now.

I hope you're well, and thanks for letting me know about this!
