This is a community for fans of the BBC series Merlin to come together and post fan creations centered around any and all potential OT4s combos in the show. The original focus of this comm was the most obvious OT4: Arthur/Gwen/Morgana/Merlin. However, if you've just been itching to write some Uther/Igraine/Nimueh/Gaius, this is the place for you! We are open to all foursomes and moresomes! Fan fiction, fan videos, discussion, anything related is welcome! Be it as friends or something more (OT4, twice as much fun as an OTP!)
Rules: 1. Please keep all posts on topic. This community is anything OT4 (or more) related only. There are plenty of other general Merlin communities that would be much more suitable for, say, talk about the actors. Unless the actors suddenly acknowledge the chemistry, it's probably best to keep it to yourself ;) With that in mind, "anything OT4 related" can be discussion, fanfiction, music videos, icons, artwork, fan mixes, whatever!
2. That said, ideally everything posted here would exclusively be OT4 material--however, since that is somewhat rare, any fan creation that features the four characters with equal prominence is acceptable, even if it pairs them off separately (Arthur/Gwen with Merlin and Morgana observing longingly from the sidelines, for example). This flexible rule also applies to any wandering Lancelots that happen to pop up and decide to make the ol' reliable OT4 a cozy OT5 instead. The more the merrier! -- Please note that this rule is subject to change if the comm becomes flooded with content that is a little too general for the intended purpose of the community.
3. Please do not flame other fans and/or their work. It's not as if this is a high-traffic corner of fandom, shouldn't we all try to get along? Besides, remember what your parental units used to say: if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all.
4. As a courtesy, please LJ-cut all stories, large artwork and spoilers for the sake of other members' friends lists.
5. If you're posting fic, please use the following template:
Title: Rating: Warnings/Spoilers: Summary:
For art, please modify this template as you like but remember that it's important to rate your work based on its content.
6. Once this community starts rolling, a tagging system will be created based on however the members feel best works for the content. For now, basic tags will be used ("fic," "art," "icons," etc)
