merlin - percival close shot: universald

Dreamers of the Day - Mithian/Percival - NC17

It's time to share what I wrote for merlinreversebb!

Though there was a lot of great art to choose from, I was immediately drawn to this fantastic piece by viennajones. I have written Percival with a lot of different characters, but it had never occurred to me to try him with Mithian until her work got me to thinking about it. I realized, hey, those two would be great together. Their strong hearts and fighter instincts could challenge each other in great ways. Even better, viennajones's art was already a story. As someone with a film background, I LOVED that I could see it unfolding before my very eyes. All I would have to do would be to try and put the right words to it. I hope I managed to do it justice.
