Title: A Statue Strong Enough For Two by lady_ragnell
Fandom: Merlin
Rated: Explicit
Pairing: Elena/Mithian

Author's summary: Elena is a street-level superhero--she's never been one of the ones who wanted glory. Now, though, a visit from an old enemy forces her to step up and see what she might have to do with the Sidhe who invaded and were sent away twenty years ago. Luckily, she has fellow superheroes, especially the Huntress, to back her up, and a new girlfriend in her regular life to make things feel more normal. (Though nothing, of course, can ever be normal when you've got a secret identity.)

Why I loved it: SUPERHEROES! PLOT! FEMSLASH! SECRET IDENTITIES! AWESOME POWERS! WHY ARE YOU STILL READING THIS POST AND NOT THE STORY?

Still here? Okay. I saw the author post about this fic on tumblr and downloaded it from AO3 SO FAST OMG because of the aforementioned capslocky reasons. And then reality, augh, boo, so I only got around to starting it last night, and I absolutely loved every minute of it. I will be rereading it very soon.

The love story and associated conflict are very, very well done, but what really makes this story for me is SUPERHEROES. I don't want to spoil you guys for the PURE GLEE you will probably feel (if you are a bit of a nerd) on hearing various superhero names and abilities. Just wonderful.

I said in my comment on AO3 that if I was an arty type, I would be making comic fanart of this fic RIGHT NOW, because it is just so recognisably that kind of world. It would fit so gorgeously in a graphic novel, I can perfectly picture so much of it.

Don't walk, run.
