Rec: The Play’s the Thing by Shinybug

Title: The Play’s the Thing
Author: Shinybug
Canon: Merlin BBC
Pairing: Arthur Pendragon/Merlin
Rating: Mature [R]
Word Count: 4,989
Summary: Arthur had to spare a thought to be impressed at how many slanderous and untrue things Merlin had managed to insert into such a brief statement: that Arthur liked to drink, and that when he did drink too much he had a tendency to inflict bodily harm upon his manservant, either in the form of beatings and/or possibly sodomy, and that chambermaids were more or less involved in these indiscretions.

Recommendation: So all the scandalous and salacious things turn out to be true, except for the beatings, those are rank and terrible lies.
