Fandom: Sherlock (BBC)
Characters: Lestrade, Sherlock, John, Mrs Hudson, Molly, Sebastian Moran

Title: Equilibrium, Chapter 1
Fandom: Merlin
Rating: G-PG for eventual light romance
Word Count: This part - 4740
Pairing/Characters: Ensemble, eventual Merlin/Arthur, plus male OC sort of (he's from the original legends but hasn't turned up in the show... yet)
Disclaimer: The characters and concept of Merlin do not belong to me. I merely kidnap them and play with them sometimes.
Warnings: Uhm... I twisted Arthurian legend for my own nefarious purposes.
Spoilers: Up to The Gates of Avalon I think, whatever number that was. I can't remember
Author’s Note: This was originally written for [livejournal.com profile] merlin_the_elf but it grew a life of its own and, despite a supreme beta job by [livejournal.com profile] wrennette, I didn't have it edited in time. It was completed before the finale however, and most of it was done before the last three episodes. The finale did make it AU, though, to my displeasure.

For those of you who know Arthurian legend or who have at least read the works of Chretien de Troyes, I apologise in advance for the corruption of his story. I thought that Percival would work best for this role, and I'm rubbish at thinking of names.

Also - the title is rubbish because I couldn't really think of one. bah, humbug. I got a plot but no title. I suppose this is to balance out all those times I got a title and no plot.

Summary: After an incident on a routine patrol Arthur gets into trouble that he wasn't expecting.
