Title: Christmas Holidays Aren't What They Used To Be
Author: momotastic

Pairings/characters: Merlin Emrys/Arthur Pendragon, Gwen Smith/Leon Knight, referenced/mentioned/implied/past: Gwaine/Percy, Merlin/Freya, Gwen/Lancelot, Uther/Ygraine, Gaius/Geoffrey
Rating: E
Word Count: ~32.000
Warnings: minor character death (canonical), a bunch of smut inbetween the plot, schmoopiness
Disclaimer: Merlin and Arthur are characters from legends of old and therefore free for anyone to play with. However, in this particular form, the characters resemble BBC's Merlin's cast. I make no money from this, I'm only using them to indulge my need for some Christmas smut and the urge to write all the movie fusions.

Author's notes:

I wrote this in just a few weeks and I'm amazed that I finished it, and that it got so long. I meant to make this a short fic, but apparently I don't do short. *shrugs* I wrote this, in part, for the [livejournal.com profile] merlincarols fest hosted by my friend [livejournal.com profile] gaymerlinhell. The song I claimed is "Child of Love" by Sara Groves. I've included a playlist with the fic, if you're interested in listening to it.

Summary:

Neither Gwen nor Arthur expected to find so much when they switched places for the Christmas holidays. Arthur in a tiny village in Surrey, England, and Gwen in Los Angeles, California each find much more than they bargained for in the two weeks leading up to Christmas. The only problem is: What will they do with what they’ve found once they go back home? [Loosely inspired by The Holiday]

I'm a feminist who loves TV & enjoys movies, adores her friends, occasionally writes fanfic (and rarely finishes them), almost always reads fanfics, nerds about Harry Potter, moons over Bradley James and others (esp. when blond/e), collects picture books and colouring books (but rarely colours the latter one), procrastinates, organises fan convention(s). I'm domestic, a librarian, going on 30, and anglophile. That's all you need to know to begin with XD
