    Summary

    Merlin knew starting at the highly prestigious Cambridge University would bring a wealth of new opportunities and experiences. But he had never thought that would include falling in with royalty.
    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

    After living in Camelot for ten years, magic is still illegal, Albion remains a mirage, and Merlin is still 'just a servant' who is lonely and tired of his hopeless pining for Arthur. He finds love in an unexpected place, but nobody will ever measure up to Arthur, and besides, Merlin's pining may be less hopeless than he thinks.

    Merlin will pay a heavy price for his lack of direction as Arthur’s walls of denial crumble and Morgana’s plans to destroy Emrys approach fruition. In his desperation to save the Golden Age of his dreams, Merlin will have to reveal himself as he calls upon his magic like never before, testing the old adage that power corrupts - and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    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

    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.

    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

    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.)
