The Fairy of Shalott - Masterpost

Title: The Fairy of Shalott
Author: marink1485 (MarInk)
Beta: oomnydevvotchka
Pairing: Bradley/Colin
Rating: PG-13
Genre: romance, hurt/comfort
Summary: Colin works in a bookstore and harbours a dream. An unusual customer comes in one day, and before Colin knows it his neatly organized life goes downhill. Or, maybe, uphill, even if there is no such phrase. He can’t really decide which one.
A/N: 1) This is an AU in which the TV-show Merlin never happened (also, I took the liberty of alternating a few other things, but nothing as major as this one). However, it doesn’t stop some things from happening;
2)  Written for the Merlin RPF Big Bang 2012 (merlinbb_rpf).
3) I’m endlessly grateful to my beta and cheerleader-reader oomnydevvotchka. I’d never finish it without her total awesomeness to support me;
4) My artist helva2260 is a true warlock with Photoshop! Her art is wonderful, and here’s the art masterpost for you to see the aforementioned wonder all together: click right here

I really, really enjoyed this. Your writing style is just amazing, at times the narrative reminded me of victorian literature and I adore how you wrote Colin. The way the depth of his own feelings scared him to the point that he left them completely unacknowledged, and how you managed to portray them anyway, is brilliantly done. So amazing, I am literally in awe of your talent.
