Summary: Merlin was no expert, but the minstrel troupe's performance in the courtyard seemed to be going fairly well until the dragon landed on the roof of the Great Hall.
Reasons for Reccing: Normally I prefer to rec longer stories, but I can't not rec this fandom classic. This story is well-known, and one that I've reread many times. It's still a story I randomly quote to a close fandom friend. This story contains an attempted sacrifice by Merlin, an attempted rescue by Arthur and a sassy dragon. Yep, it's pretty much like the show. If you're feeling down or need a pick-me-up, immediately go and read this story.
