Thank you to everyone who participated in the reread! It wouldn’t have been the same without you (okay, well, it’s The Student Prince, it would totally still be fun and painful and hilarious and PAINFUL and FUN and emotional reading it alone but it’s MORE FULL OF EMOTIONS with friends to share it with)!
Maybe we’ll see you around next year?
Can you believe it? Yesterday, we finished the reread! 35 days of laughing, smiling, crying, and shipping, together as fans. Did you have fun? Did you stick to one chapter a day? What were your favorite things about the TSP reread?
I quote: “Second star to the right, and straight on till morning. Another stupid adventure. Come and be king of the world?” Does that make any sense to you?
Merlin screwed up his face, and then broke into a grin.
But you know what … it’s cool … we can just to right back to the beginning and READ IT ALL OVER AGAIN!
Never stop reading it! :D
Speaking of Ellen, I understand that she’s supporting him on Twitter like crazy, as is a gentleman called Stephen Fry. The top hashtags on Twitter are currently ‘Gay Prince’, ‘Prince Arthur ftw’. -Chapter 35 of The Student Prince

Though not an actual scene from the fic, after making the manip I couldn’t help but feel like that line just seemed… right.
Could work as either Brolin or Merthur reincarnated (circa Student Prince)
Still figuring out the ins and outs of photoshop, so please be kind!
Much like Straight On Till Morning
Singing and dancing along together and hugging each other and just being in love …
Why can’t The Student Prince be real life?
Whatever you have against Kay, you genuinely can not fault his loyalty. I mean, he’s been homophobic earlier in the fic, so he’s obviously not that big on it. But then Arthur comes out on LIVE TELEVISION and Kay punches someone to defend him. He gets really pissed off about it. He says it himself, “even if he is a bloody poof! He’s our bloody poof!”. Anyone else, he has a problem with, but Kay and Arthur and Gawain must’ve been together for so long and Kay genuinely can not find it in himself to hate Arthur for being who he is, even if he hated Cedric for it.
Kay’s a bit of a pillock, yeah, but he’s so loyal it’s just a little bit uplifting!
