    Soon he's sucked into a world where everyone has a title and a duty to uphold. And maybe one or two people are also prats. Quickly, though, he realises one prat in particular might be something

    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

    Arthur Pendragon, the youngest Detective Inspector in Camelot, whose job is rumoured to be cursed, stumbles over a series of crimes no one can explain. Merlin Emrys, a constantly broke student working at a shady nightclub to pay the bills, comes in as a sketch artist - one with an unusual gift. The shadow of magic, supposedly eradicated centuries ago, makes things so much more dangerous for everyone. It's hardly a good time to fall in love.

    Summary

    A day in the future for Camelot's royal family.

    (Or, the epilogue that I promised everyone, decided I really didn't need an epilogue, but had already promised an epilogue, so I decided to make it a ficlet instead.)

    Summary

    Not much is known about the blue sun, Assetir; even less of its ninth planet, an unnamed gas giant. But the moon which orbited the gas giant is well-documented in contemporary chronicles. It was called Ealdor by its inhabitants. Its mass, its irregular shape, its composition bore evidence of a darker truth. Ealdor was not simply a moon; it was formed out of the remains of a dead Dragon.

    It is said that a Dragon cannot survive without a Dragonlord. The Great Dragon, being the greatest of them all, persevered. When it could no longer endure, it travelled to Assetir, where a Dragonlord lived in exile, and made its call.

    Meanwhile, in the town of Camelot, the Great Dragon's people lived in ignorance of the new Dragonlord who had appeared among them and set a series of events in motion which would challenge everything they knew of the world they lived in.

    His name: Merlin.

    Weeks after Merlin reveals his magic to Arthur, Merlin is frustrated when Arthur keeps him waiting about what he plans to do with Merlin and the magic ban in Camelot. Leaving Camelot to investigate a powerful magical feeling, Merlin doesn't expect to reunite with a now grown-up Mordred. Or that he'd be looking after a Faery-possessed five-year old blond boy, and venturing into the Faery Realm. With Merlin away, Arthur is trapped in his own castle by an aging spell cast by a spiteful Morgana. Merlin seeks help from the King of the Faery Realm's Thistlewood to cure Arthur. Unfortunately his plea for aid has unforeseen consequences.

    Summary

    He drifts to Cenred’s window, and against his will, his thoughts turn to the punter from the night before - Merlin, the magic man, with the eye brand on his inner arm, and his way of speaking, hesitant at first, but bolder, and his hands .... Mordred shakes his head and turns around as Cenred comes back into the room.

    “Hold out your arm, lovely. This’ll get you through with Morgause.”

    Mordred smiles lazily and holds up his arm, watching as Cenred expertly applies the pop to his Shunt.

    “There. And now you owe me again, lovely.”

    Summary

    This really hasn't been Merlin's day. Or week. Or month, really. Seeing his best friend die in front of him was bad enough. But magicking himself into the future in order to save Arthur? Probably not as good an idea as it seemed on paper. And this future version of Gwaine will not stop hitting on him. Even in front of the future Arthur - talk about embarrassing. Especially since Merlin needs to get to know this Arthur if he's ever going to figure out how to save his.
