  2. Summary

    If Into the Badlands met The Once and Future King, this is the story that would be told:

    Merlin has three strikes against him: he's one of the last surviving members of the grove of Ironwood, he's renowned as the dread sorcerer Emrys, and there's a large reward hanging over his head like Damocles' sword. After decades of running, there's nowhere left to go. His dream of peace -- Ironwood's dream -- seems impossible to achieve until he meets the young son of a thane whose greatest secret is a traitorous desire for more than the tyranny that runs rampant throughout the Kingdoms of Albion.

    It was disaster that brought the world to this. It's war that will cleanse it of its sins. But it is prophecy that heralds the day when the guardian of the realm can wear his mantle once again, and when the King of Kings will rise to take the throne that is rightly his.

    Summary

    And, Arthur can see as he gets closer, from the stones in the centre of the clearing comes a fountain. It’s a rough hewn thing, and Arthur can’t decide whether it’s been there as long as time itself and weathered into its irregular shape, or whether it was simply inexpertly made. Whichever it is, it seems as dark as obsidian, and cracked at the edges. Arthur motions for the knights to stay back, and ties the reins of his horse to one of the last trees, whose shade he still hides beneath. He steps forward into the clearing. He can hear the trickle of the water bubbling away across the surface of the fountain. He can smell the pollen on the air. It’s like a spell.

    Summary

    A sorcerer has cast a love spell on Arthur. It is very irritating. He cannot look at Merlin without this inconvenient *longing*. Meanwhile Merlin tries in secret to remove the spell but can't, and he can't explain without revealing that he too is a sorcerer, and so everyone is unhappy. Or is something else going on? Slightly silly merthur. Some angst. Lots of misunderstanding. And of course romance. You know what, this one is terribly romantic, even more than my usual. It's a bit like Heartfire, which you may also like if you like this.

    Summary

    Merlin is a recalcitrant and terribly incompetent robot. Arthur is his perpetually exasperated (but secretly adoring) master. Arthurian legend meets Asimov meets Harlequin in this tale of forbidden romance!

    Summary

    "Let me take it instead!" He cried, standing before his panicked men with arms outstretched, palms up as though to receive a gift rather than the wrath of a High Fae.

    The Unseelie woman smiled widely, inclining her head at him as the men begged for their lives still, his small form quivering beneath her strange gaze as he struggled to hold his ground.

    "You would receive it willingly? Truly?"
