    Summary

    Merlin thought his story was done - the perfect picture was already taken. He was living in the Happily Ever After, with everything it entailed: a happy marriage, five amazing and imperfect children, a friendly ex-wife, fantastic friends and a woman that never failed to surprise him.

    He would never have thought it would all fall apart faster than a camera snaps.

    Summary

    Written for Paperlegends 2013.
    Dark magic never rests. Especially since it’s possible to obtain legal permission to use it. Arthur Pendragon, an employee of the Department of Supernatural Affairs, knows this better than most, as he is the one working tirelessly to keep the realm of magic in balance.
    Staying busy also helps Arthur to cope with loneliness after a painful breakup with his longtime boyfriend, Merlin, who abandoned him with little explanation. Life seems to be getting back on track when he receives an assignment that sets off a disturbing chain of events at the highest level of magic. Arthur fights every obstacle on his path to prevent an imminent disaster, and along the way he finds out the truth of why Merlin left him. It’s not all that simple.

    Summary

    Enslaved by Kanen since childhood, Merlin has been raised to believe his collar is all that keeps him in check.

Then one day Kanen's gang is ambushed and in the ensuing confusion, Merlin escapes and flees to Camelot where he attempts to start a new life. However, his old master isn’t about to let him go without a fight.

    Summary

    Arthur dies in Merlin’s arms after being stabbed by Mordred, and is sent to Avalon. As it turns out, the Great Dragon was right about something and Arthur gets to live life after life, unknowingly waiting for his destiny and an age-old prophecy to come true.
    When Merlin dies, being a creature of magic, he is confronted by the Cailleach and gets the choice to either stay immortal, waiting for Arthur, or to be reincarnated until the two of them are reunited. Unable to imagine living forever with nothing but memories to sustain him, Merlin chooses to forget and be reborn.
    Morgana gets the same choice, but chooses immortality. What she doesn’t realise is that she will be stuck watching over the very people who caused her death, waiting for them to fulfil their joint destiny and setting her free.
    She also doesn’t know that her wards are in danger and that the inevitable storm is drawing closer...

    (I.e. follows canon up to Arthur’s death in 5x13, but deviates after that.)

    Summary

    (Based on E.M. Forster's A Room With a View.)

    Summary

    Aristotle wrote, ‘The law is reason, free from passion’

    When Manhattan based lawyer Arthur Pendragon left England five years ago, he had every intention of never returning; yet his father’s death changed everything. So with a stipulation hanging over his inheritance, Arthur finds himself sharing an office with the most unlikeliest of people, his barristers clerk Merlin. Unfortunately just when Arthur and Merlin’s work relationship begins to turn into something more, Arthur’s new client, teenage drug dealer Mordred, causes a rift to form between them after Merlin discovers the teenager’s connection to his best friend Will’s murder.

    However just when Merlin starts to think his life couldn’t become anymore complicated, Will’s widow (and his current roommate) Freya takes off, leaving Merlin to care for her newborn son; but even Arthur isn’t one to let their fight stop him from being a friend to Merlin in his time of need.

    Summary

    Arthur Pendragon has almost everything he could ever want; he’s smart, handsome, charismatic, and rich. However, he longs for the same kind of perfect, loving relationship his own parents had enjoyed…the kind of relationship that generations of the Pendragon family have enjoyed. But in all his searching, Arthur has never found the right person to love, the other half of his soul…until now.

    Enter Merlin Emrys. A recent university graduate, Merlin arrives at Pendragon, Inc. to interview for an internship, but has a fateful run-in with the company’s gorgeous CEO instead.

    Arthur knows immediately that there’s something special about the man he hires as his new Personal Assistant. It’s not long before Arthur realizes that he and Merlin were meant to be together, each formed for the other’s happiness. Fate has brought Merlin into his life and deep down, Arthur knows he would stop at nothing to make Merlin his own.

    If only Merlin felt the same way about Arthur.

    However, Merlin’s initial reluctance only inspires Arthur to work harder to win his love. Because it’s always been said, true love conquers all.

    Summary

    Hockey team captain Arthur Pendragon is determined that this year, their team will win the league championship. They’ve got everything they need to win: the perfect combination of players, and they’ve put in the training and effort to make their team a well-oiled machine. The Red Dragons are well on their way towards winning a spot in the playoffs when disaster strikes and their star center Gwaine is knocked out for the season. With their prospects for a replacement slim to none, it’s going to take a miracle to win the cup now.

So when Coach Kilgarrah enlists his help with the hockey team’s predicament, Merlin is not at all sure he wants to help. Especially since the team captain is such a prat.

     

    Neither of them expected to fall in love.

    Summary

    "Am I going crazy?" Merlin thinks and shakes the Magic 8 Ball. A small, violet triangle appears in the ball’s window.
    "Ask Again Later," the sign says.
    Merlin turns the ball around in his hands. "Are the ghosts real?" he asks.
    "Signs Point To Yes."
    Merlin looks around and shivers when he sees something grey at the periphery of his vision again.
    "Will they get me?" he asks and turns the ball.
    "Most Likely."

    -----
    Merlin never thought that a bit of weed could unleash such horrid hallucinations. But what if the ghosts trying to claw at him through mirrors are real? Will the magic that Merlin has discovered within himself be enough to save him? And more importantly, will Merlin be able to save Arthur, the boy he’s fallen in love with, before the dark Goddess kidnaps him to the Underworld?

    Summary

    Sometimes, destiny is all about bad timing.

    When Merlin woke up this morning, he expected to go on about his life as a 20-something curse-blocked (don't ask) barista with a cat named Eomer (don't judge) and a tendency to get distracted by his own imagination. He certainly didn't expect to end the day engaged to the woman of his dreams.

    Probably because he's never spoken to her. She also happens to be unconscious.

    But she's suddenly his and Merlin finds himself stumbling over exes, ethics, and the fact that she comes as part of a package deal, along with an overbearing father, a group of friends-in-law that should have their own sitcom… and a brother named Arthur, who takes all of Merlin's assumptions about his life and turns them onto their heads.

    Sometimes, destiny is also about misdirection.

    (AKA: While You Were Sleeping, Merlin-style.)
