It is 1962, and Pendragon Publishing is looking at how to expand the readership of its fashion magazine ‘Camelot’. The decision to bring in newer, younger photographers leads to Arthur Pendragon, the rebellious, innovative heir to the Pendragon empire being admitted back into the fold for one trial photoshoot, but only if he agrees to do things their way. Unfortunately for them, when Arthur claps eyes on Merlin - clumsy, nervous, doesnt-know-how-to-hold-still Merlin - he realises that he has found his Muse and that he will have to fight to keep him, even if it means pushing further than he has ever gone before.
In other words, this will be very much based on the story of photographer David Bailey and model Jean Shrimpton from the BBC’s ‘We’ll Take Manhattan’.
Verdict: Literally the only negative thing I have to say about this fic is that there isn’t more of it. I just want to read about Arthur and Merlin and everyone else traipsing about Manhattan forever.
