Episode 49: Fanfiction: Crossovers & Fusions

cover art in which Merlin wears a headset with microphone and holds up a finger to his lips as if to tell you to be quiet

In today’s episode, MissSnowfox and Momo are joined by Markie and Hanson to talk about Crossover & Fusion fanfiction! We got into the difference between Crossovers and Fusions, popular fandoms that get crossed/fused with Merlin a lot, and all kinds of other things.

The episode is just under 2h long. We apologise for the spotty audio on momo’s part. He’s had to switch tech recently and is still working out the kinks.

  1. I actually didn’t even know that Two Weeks Notice is a movie, now I see that the Merthur manip for the cover is based on the movie poster, so thanks for that. I haven’t read it yet, but now I will watch the movie first.
    Also, I didn’t know that Momo wrote a fic based on The Holiday, that is my favourite Christmas movie of all time, I re-watch it every year. Definitely excited to read that!
    I’m not surprised by the top crossover fandoms listed. I don’t read any Harry Potter fanfic because I always end up mixing them up with what happened in the books, but I’m interested to some of the Merlin crossover ones with it.

  2. No need for a talk back!

    Hey, I loved momo’s VEN diagram.

    I would read Star Wars/Merlin stories, but there aren’t a lot of them. 🙁
