CHEWYSTORIES The help  
 
THE HELP

   MERLIN / ARTHUR 



CHEWYSTORIES, the mainstay of this journal. Here I couple manips with ficlets to tell an ongoing 
narrative. This has always set chewableprose apart as a place where you can find porn 
accompanied by prose. The result being a more meaningful and believable slash fantasy, enjoy.



Ficlet | Arthur had not always been the most considerate of masters. At times he had treated Merlin poorly. But he had never before been cruel. Until now. His marriage to Guinevere seemed to mark a fundamental change in how he treated his servant. The two had been intimate for some time, and while Merlin had no illusions about what that intimacy was — a release for the king? Maybe even a comfort — he never thought it was just sex, just a fuck; until now. For the first time Arthur's taunts and belittling had carried over into his chambers making Merlin feel like nothing more than the help. Faceless flesh for Arthur to misuse at a whim. And this hurt Merlin, more than the dry cock his master thrust inside him without preparation of his opening, or even the slicker of his spit. It hurt him inside, in his heart, where only Arthur could reach him.

For Merlin had come to love Arthur, to see their paths as entwined and their fate as one. He had come to see them as more than master and manservant, perhaps even as soul mates. And while there was once a time when he annoyed Merlin for failing to recognise his power. A time when he would complain to Gaius of his nature. Now what bothered him the most was how when alone, away from his knights and his queen, Arthur could be inside him, yet still removed and heartless. That he could fuck him, without seeing him. It is for this that Merlin, under the guise of the pains of penetration, cried out in anguish whenever Arthur fucked him.     

Notes | Following the end of Merlin and my resulting heartache, this journal will be focusing on Merlin manips for a while as part of a series. It is my way of paying tribute to a show I really enjoyed. You'll likely notice a turn toward the serious in what follows. I hope you enjoy it and that it eases the pain for fans of the show.

CHEWYCOMPETITION: THE GOLDENCHEWY 


The GoldenChewy is an annual prize that reaffirms my commitment to fostering a better comment culture on this journal. It is awarded to the user with the most Best ChewyStories Comment wins in the year.

The user who leaves the best comment on a chewystories post will have the opportunity to request one manip (posted prior to my open access policy) they would like made public. In order to be in the running you must be a chewyresident and have posted your comment on the chewystories entry before I publish a new chewystories post, on which the winner will be announced and invited to choose one manip to make public. If there are no outstanding comments, no winner will be chosen.

On the anniversary of this journal (9 January), the user with the most 'wins' of that year will be invited to request a manip of their very own. Not only will I create a slash manip of your choosing (with any two characters from any fandom you desire), but you will also receive the hi-res file of your manip (and be the only one other than myself who will have it). Hopefully this will encourage more of you to comment more generously. Let the feedback begin.

And the Best ChewyStories Comment for the last chewystories post goes to zdae69 (tally: 3) for this comment, your meaningful engagement with the ficlet and manip (on a fandom you aren't even invested in) completely blew me away, thank you. Keep up the effort everyone, because the final prize is pretty special.

i totally thought this would happen during the series finale lol
chewableprose on January 2nd, 2013 10:54 pm (UTC)
I was certainly hoping it would. Did you enjoy the finale? I did.

too bad the show is over now, I hope you will still do manips of them cause they are so hot and your work is always great. In the last episode I almost believe that they will exchange a kiss lol
chewableprose on January 2nd, 2013 10:54 pm (UTC)
Thank you, me too. And yes, as I say in the notes, there are more Merlin manips on the way. Thanks for the kind words.

You're welcome, thanks for the comment ;).

Great manip Joe even though the ficlet accompanying it is kinda sad :( but great choice of faces for the both of them ^^
chewableprose on January 8th, 2013 02:54 am (UTC)
Thanks Tom, yes, it's a sad time to be a Merlin fan right now. Thanks for the nice words.
owensheart on January 3rd, 2013 10:33 am (UTC)
Hot pic but poor poor Merlin.
chewableprose on January 8th, 2013 02:54 am (UTC)
Thanks Rose, and yes, poor Merlin.

Ooh yummy

Rather awkward Arthur head, but a hot manip. I've been hoping that fakers would feature Mordred: he was the baddie, but also the prettiest knight! The ending of the final episode was inevitable, but I liked the clever last scene, showing that Merlin is still with us.
chewableprose on January 8th, 2013 02:55 am (UTC)
Thanks, yes, Arthur's expression was meant to be awkward. And I enjoyed the end of the series too.

Great manip, very hot and a bit of a different angle. It certainly fits the rather sad ficlet that goes with it.

However, I'm very much looking forward to this series of Merlin manips you're planning! I certainly don't mind that you're focusing on them for awhile, not when we get such wonderful ficlets and manips as a result.

Thanks for your wonderful art!
chewableprose on January 8th, 2013 02:56 am (UTC)
Thank you for your support, and for engaging with my planned Merlin series of manips. Means a lot. Glad you enjoyed this one.

I'm sorry it's taken so long to comment and I'll try to get through supernatural fandom tonight since I've been waiting ages to do so.

I like the different take you've used here and I look forwards to a continuation and I'm happy to here the end of the series sparked more interest for you. I was torn about the last episode but I'm glad they at least finished it.

Maybe you can look into their relationship after Arthur returns, something in a modern setting?

Anyway excellent ficlet and manip as always.

Keep up the good work.
chewableprose on January 13th, 2013 09:01 am (UTC)
Thank you so much, as always I appreciate the support. Yes, the story takes a bit of a serious, somber turn with this manip, which seemed fitting following the end of the series.

Yes, it feels like the right time to return to this fandom. And I look forward to keeping the flame alive.

What's good about the ending of the series is that modern Merlin is no longer AU. How amazing it would be to see a modern series now.
zdae69 on January 21st, 2013 08:57 am (UTC)
I don't know what to do, cry after reading the ficlet, or jizz after seeing the manip! :O

I have to say Joe, you are definitely good at tugging on one's heartstrings with your work. I'm so envious of how you make your words flow so smoothly and elegantly. That's definitely one of the reasons I love reading your fics so much. And once again, I can relate to this one. (Which I think is what I really like most about your Merlin series, I've been able to relate to many of them.) Had the same thing happen with one of my closest friends. (Except it was more along the lines of losing a video game buddy than a sexual partner...) But I can definitely sympathise with Merlin on this one. That feeling of abandonment is just awful, and you have described it to a tee. And as for Guinevere, SEND HER TO THE GALLOWS!

I love how in-tune the manip is with the ficlet! Merlin in blissful pain for his soulmate, and Arthur with an aloof, clueless expression on his face. Such a beautifully hot manip. I especially love Merlin's perfect bubble butt!

So happy to have one best comment on your last one! And although I'm not "invested" in this fandom (at the moment, at least.), I enjoy reading your Merlin ficlets just as much as if I was more familiar with the show. It's like I get the world of Merlin created for me in advance. With how you describe the characters' emotions and demeanors, one who is completely new to a fandom can still enjoy your work!

Once again, I'm so sorry to hear that a show that you hold close was cancelled. I know oh too well that feeling. (I have a show I'm currently worried about. It's nearing the end of the first half of it's current season, and there's no sign that it has been renewed yet T_____T) *Brews you a mug of hot cocoa*
chewableprose on January 22nd, 2013 02:55 am (UTC)
Thank you so much for this AMAZING comment. It means the world to me. I'm so glad you found this entry emotionally powerful, that's exactly what I was going for (I was probably channelling my upset at the show's end, I really did need that mug of hot cocoa :). *blushes* Thank you, I do enjoy combining prose with my manips, it can be such a powerful combination, and it means a lot not only that you take the time to read the ficlet, but also to think about the connection between the image and words.

I can certainly recommend this series (although you have to stick with it during the first three seasons), it brought me so much enjoyment. And that you can still appreciate this series of mine without being a fan of the show is the biggest compliment. So thank you.

The next entry in this series will be up soon. Thanks for your support my friend and I hope your show survives *hugs*.
