Drive-by Fic Rec

I need to get back into the habit of reccing the great fics I've read lately -- I think I just assume I'm behind the game and everybody has already seen them.

But here's a new one that you might have missed: [info]mclachlan's Insubordination. Summary: Arthur, being the crown prince, is allowed a certain amount of power. Actually, a lot of power, really. Except when he isn't. I usually get drawn into stories for clever plots or because they make me see a character in a new light or even because they make me laugh. But on rare occasions I fall in love with the author's language, with the way their words roll through my head and feel lush against my eyes. That's what [info]mclachlan's done here. I'd paste up a bit, but I'd end up pasting the entire story, and it's really not that long (~2600 words). Perfect for reading before bed, as I did, and perfect for waking up to remember the repeated insistence that Arthur had power, and the beautiful realisation of how that power fails in the face of his feelings for Merlin. Go, read!

And now, to work. Oh Monday, why must you vex me so?
