Arthur is instantly targeted by the inmates, but mysterious top dog Merlin takes him under his wing. They form a bond, and Merlin decides to help Arthur clear his name.

Originally written for this prompt at [livejournal.com profile] kinkme_merlin: Arthur/Merlin, modern prison AU. Uther is the notorious warden of a prison for magic users. When Nimeuh frames Arthur for a magical crime, he's sent down for it. Being pretty, blonde and the hated warden's son makes him a prime target and everyone wants to make him their prison bitch. Luckily he catches the eye of mysterious topdog!Merlin who takes him under his wing... Bonus points for everyone being terrified of Merlin and Arthur being all indignant about needing "protection".

Notes: I deviated from the prompt slightly: Uther isn't just a prison warden, though he likes to be hands-on. This isn't really a prison story so much as it's the story of the world that has a prison for magic users in it.

So, here is my last year's NaNo project, and it's still a WiP. But I'm on chapter 13 right now, and my BigBang fic is with my lovely beta, so hopefully this won't take another whole year. Yes, this particular chapter was written a year ago, I'm not even kidding. I'm about to break 100K on this story.
