    Summary

    -Shwellenangst-
    -Noun, German-
    The fear of crossing a threshold to embark on something new.

    -----
    The raven’s cheeky smile had shifted into that of something twisted and angry. The servant stepped forth and rose his hand without thinking, and as Arthur turned, he saw the twelfth and final bandit go flying back, the vivid crack of his skull against the stone he’d been thrown against ringing in his ear.

    The blond turned back to see Merlin’s eyes fade from molten gold back to their azure blue. Merlin looked at him with pained regret on his face as he lowered his hand and took a step back.

    “I’m sorry.” The raven whispered, panic overtaking his face.

    -----

    **Takes place before the season 3 finale, but Uther is dead, the knights are all here etc. Cuz I said so.

    Summary

    Arthur doesn’t sleep. He feels heavy with guilt at the knowledge that he nearly killed his best friend. His only friend. He wishes he’d never found out about Merlin’s magic. Then this wouldn’t have happened.

    Or, no, that’s not true. He didn’t have to react that way, didn’t have to use cold iron. He could’ve at least spoken to Merlin first. But he didn’t, and now his only friend’s nearly dead. Every time he closes his eyes he sees Merlin’s terrified, accusing look.

    Arthur finds out about Merlin's magic and decides to keep him safe by stopping his magic. Unfortunately, thinking he's protecting him and actually doing so are completely different things.

    Summary

    He probably learned magic to help, and did- to make you better- but…
    How long until he's conspiring against Camelot?

    Summary

    Lancelot hesitates. Clearly he’s hit a significant nerve by hiding this injury, and it worries him. He doesn’t think he’s ever seen Merlin so worked up. “I’ve been cleaning it about twice a day,” he begins quietly, “and I tore my spare sheet to keep it covered. I haven’t used any herbs.” 

    Merlin stares down at the offending wound, lips pursed and forehead wrinkled in worry. “I have to drain it,” Merlin says grimly. “That pus has to come out.” He glances up at Lancelot, concern taking over the lingering anger in his eyes. “It will hurt.” 

    “I can bear it,” Lancelot assures. He pauses a moment, then continues. “I’m sorry I didn’t tell you. I meant to prevent work, but I only made more.” 

    “I don’t care about the work,” Merlin murmurs, returning to the gash and avoiding Lancelot’s apologetic gaze. “Lance…”

     

    Lancelot hides an injury, hoping to prevent more work for Merlin, who is swamped caring for four others. But the wound becomes infected, so he reluctantly reveals it to Merlin, expecting the angry response—but not the reason behind it.

    Summary

    Merlin does not stop. He doesn’t stop until there is nothing left of the tower but dust, nothing left of the island but sand. He doesn’t stop until the sky is black and the earth is scorched, and the rage in the centre of his chest has simmered down to a low flame.

    He takes in the destruction, takes in the changed landscape that has not been changed since he laid Arthur to rest here. It’s not peace that he feels, but it’s the closest he has got in a long time.


    Over a thousand years of waiting, and one split-second of slipped control. Merlin destroys the centre of the Sidhe's power, but destiny has never been this easy to fend off.

    Summary

    Everyone he trusted with his secret – Will, Freya, Balinor, Lancelot, and now Gaius – was gone. Arthur would never bring magic back to the land, and he would never let Merlin stand at his side the way Merlin had hoped he would. It was a cold awakening, years of baseless faith dashed against the fraying tapestry that destiny had made Merlin sew into his own skin, but an awakening nonetheless.

    Merlin is shaken out of his obsession with destiny and his blind faith in Arthur. Arthur just wishes he knew how to get his closest friend back.

    (For Merthur Angst Week 2021 Day 7: “No. You don’t get to talk.”)

    Summary

    "I'm sorry about the blood in your mouth, I wish it was mine..."

    Words spoken in anger are impossible to take back, but sometimes they need to be said regardless of the damage they leave behind.

    Summary

    Arthur feels like he’s standing on a precipice without knowing how he got here. He swallows. “He—”

    “—damned himself. So you’ve said.”

    They stare at each other, and the distance between them seems to be growing in leaps and bounds. Arthur can’t remember the last time he felt so estranged from Merlin, not during the whole disaster with Caerleon, or when Merlin disappeared. Not even when—

    “Then I’ve damned myself as well.”


    Without intending to, Arthur pushes Merlin just one step too far. Now he's left without his manservant but a hundred questions, a world of hurt, and guilt that clings to him like a shadow. Well, and a notebook filled with drawings because apparently, Merlin can draw on top of being a sorcerer. No matter how often Arthur tells himself that he just wants to forget, he can't help but come back to the collection of sketches and notes, a chronicle of all that Merlin has done.

    Maybe their story isn't quite over yet.

    Summary

    When Arthur goes back for his manservant in the tunnels, he discovers the secrets Merlin has been hiding and makes an unforgivable mistake. With blood on his hands, and the whole kingdom unable to meet his eye, Arthur is pushed from Camelot. Forced to be alone with his thoughts and try to deal with the consequences of his actions.

    In one final attempt to make things right, he bargains with the sidhe. Trading his prophesied return for Merlin to live once more. The sidhe accept Arthur's offer, but there's one issue they don't mention to the disgraced king. Merlin never went to Avalon. In fact, he never left Camelot at all.

    Merlin may be back - albeit minus a handful of years worth of memories - but the people of Camelot still do not trust their king, and the enemies of Camelot draw closer by the day. Will Arthur be able to face Merlin and come clean? Will Merlin ever be able to work by Arthur's side again? Or will Camelot's enemies overthrow the weak king, and destroy the last chances of Albion ever being united?

    Summary

    Merlin dashed over to his bed and pulled out his bag. He used his magic to summon the things he was going to pack and hurriedly shoved them inside. He could hear them now—murmuring voices and even some chanting.

    With trembling hands, he fastened the buckle of his bag and slung it over his shoulder along with his medicine bag. Then, as he grabbed his old Sidhe staff, he took one last look around the room he’d come to call home before slipping out the door with a heavy heart.

    Merlin’s plan was to sneak through the darkness into the nearest copse before starting to run. But he was too late. As he hurried towards the shadowy trees, he suddenly came face-to-face with one of his pursuers. The man brandished his torch in front of him, lunging towards Merlin as he roared out for the rest of the mob to hear, "There he is!"

    Merlin turned on his heels and started to run. He could hear the sound of people pursuing him, twigs and leaves crunching loudly beneath their feet as they followed him into the woodland.

    ‘Get him!’ called a voice.

    ‘Don’t let the witch get away!’ yelled another.

    ‘Witch, witch, witch!’ they chanted.

    Merlin comes to Camelot to fulfill his destiny. Problem is, he's a bit too early and Arthur is still but a child. Nonetheless, Merlin will do whatever it takes to protect him, and just maybe he can prevent the hatred of magic from setting in.
