    Summary

    Set directly after events in Part One: The Weight of Destiny. What conversations, if any, occurred during those moments when not everyone was present or able to observe them? Where did Merlin fail to allow the Truth to see the light of day, and how did that subvert the fates of those around him? Can Merlin get out of his own way? In "Moments of Truth," everyone confronts new and old Truths about themselves and others, as they continue to make decisions and navigate the many paths and possibilities found in Destiny's Garden.

    The stories you read here may be familiar to you. However, we are only just entering Destiny's Garden, where might these characters still surprise? Are they building toward Utopia or are their paths where their noble antecedents might still bring about Camelot's and Albion's total ruin? Will they make better choices this time? Where will those choices lead to later? Who can know?

    Summary

    Suddenly Merlin tensed in his arms. Arthur turned to see Aredian half way through the door. There was venom in Arthur's eyes as he stood and brandished his sword.

    “I can see you’re upset sire-”

    “You will pay dearly for this Aredian,”

    Summary

    Excerpt: "“Don’t be ridiculous. I could’ve killed you. It’s the least I can do. Please,” he added as an afterthought, his eyes begging Merlin. A small crowd had gathered and people were starting to murmur. The last thing Arthur needed was the press declaring that Uther Pendragon’s son had tried to kill a sorcerer with his car. But most important of all, Arthur couldn’t let him go. Even after all those years, he still couldn’t let him go."

    Summary: It's been almost ten years since Arthur shattered Merlin's heart. He's regretted it everyday since. But with Merlin's career as Nimueh's future successor and Arthur's marriage to Elena, he'd given up hope that there could ever be anything between them again. By chance, he hits Merlin with his car. Is this the second chance he'd given up on? Or is this going to end up in flames? (Spolier: it does get a little flame-y towards the end, but you'll see. Heh heh.)

    Note: I have written the entire story which is currently at 9 chapters and over 30k words. I would never trust myself to post something unfinished lol.

    Summary

    I must confess, he does not look like a monster I expected from Father’s description. But then again, those magicals rarely do. They beguile people to do their will.

    Or, an excerpt from the diary of captain Arthur Pendragon, a monster hunter.

    Summary

    Merlin chose to save Mordred against the dragon's advice. He should have made the same choice for Morgana. In which Merlin is more than a little fed up of old men and old dragons telling him what to do, and gives Morgana some hope. Maybe it won't change the dark path she's destined to walk down... Or perhaps in doing so, Merlin saves all of Albion from her wrath. Featuring the emotional catharsis and continuity we were denied in canon and a systematic re-writing of what could have been

    Summary

    "Congratulations, Mr Pendragon; a fine purchase.”
    And just like that all air was sucked from Merlin’s lungs. Purchase. He had been sold. Bought. And bought meant—
    “If you would follow me, Mr Pendragon, there are some final procedures to complete in order to finalise your transaction; Mr Aredian will see to you momentarily. I hope you brought an iron seal of your family crest for the branding?”
    —branded.

    ——

    In a city of copper and steam, the life of Arthur Pendragon takes a turn when he finds himself inexplicably mesmerised by a slave in iron shackles on the market stage. His name; Merlin.
    Over the five years since his capture, Merlin has only been sure of one thing; that nobody can afford him. But then, nobody is as rich as a Pendragon.

    Summary

    Merlin moves back to his tiny Welsh Village when his uncle retires from his vet clinic to live somewhere warm and tropical. This moves leads to many surprising things, but none more surprising than a spaceship crash landing in the field behind Merlin's house. Now he and Arthur have to struggle to keep Arthur's identity a secret as they try to find a way to get Arthur home. It won't be easy, especially with a sketchy detective with far too much interest in Arthur hanging around.

    Summary

    In another life, Arthur might’ve hesitated. In another life, the fear—actual, real fear—in the eyes of the man who he has once considered his father might’ve stalled his hand. But where his mother’s pleas to not let this knowledge change him might’ve made him hesitate, the sheer betrayal burning in Merlin’s eyes after Arthur was forced to reveal his secrets wrenches any hesitation right out of him.


    After Arthur found out about Merlin's magic, things are still tense between them. It's the worst possible time for the Witchfinder to arrive at court, but for all his worries, Arthur still could've never foreseen just how horribly it would go. He could've never foreseen all the things it would set in motion, and while there's the silver lining of how it brings him and Morgana closer, the chances of ever overcoming his guilt, of ever salvaging his and Merlin's relationship, seem almost non-existent. Almost.

    Summary

    He'd heard of the illusive Emrys. They all had. Attacking patrols and freeing prisoners.

    But with the Witchfinder whispering in the King's ear, Arthur has bigger things to worry about than one rogue sorcerer. Especially when said rogue sorcerer might be the answer to his own problems...

    Summary

    In a society where all sorcerers are enslaved and stripped of their magic, 12-year-old Merlin is sold away from his mother to serve Arthur Pendragon, son of the wealthy Uther Pendragon of Pendragon Industries. Though the life of a slave is harsh and taxing, Merlin just might find comfort and even friendship in his new home. And Arthur may discover that the system he's always accepted may not be as simple as he thought. Can the two of them bridge the social gap and change their world for the better?

    (No Merthur, just lots of close friendship. Eventual Arthur/Gwen I think, but it won't be the focus. Contains abuse and violence towards slaves, although nothing too graphic. I'll add appropriate tags as I go.)

    Summary

    Initially a series of one shots of curses based around potholes. Sub-series from chapter 18 operating on the basis of Agravaine not existing (because writing him makes me want to bathe in dettol) and Arthur actually having to think for himself.

    Secrets are everywhere in Camelot, and they aren't all Merlin's. Oh What a tangled web they weave!

    Summary

    2017, Merlin triggered a war just to make Albion's need "the greatest" and let Arthur "rise again". He took the dragon for a ride and made magic public to muggles. On the same day, caught in chaos, Queen Igraine died giving birth to the prince who was later named Arthur. Seemingly A&M are reunited by destiny, yet there's something not quite right about the prince...

    Summary

    Well if there was ever any doubt the Witchfinder was a fraud, here it is. Why on earth would a sorcerer conjure toads out of his mouth? A goblin would just burn in fire and bodies in the water would make it undrinkable. On top of that, only three women saw it. While there are always plenty of people at the well or in the square. You would think these women had eaten bad mushrooms.

    Summary

    Merlin let out a shaky breath. “...okay.” He closed his eyes. “I… I have never told this to anyone.” His voice was shaking, rough from the constant usage. “I never thought I would, but… It’s true nonetheless.” He hung his head. “I should just stop lying to myself and those around me, shouldn’t I?”

    “Yes, just say it!”

    “I… I…”

    Merlin snapped his eyes open, to stare into Aredian’s gleeful face. “I think Arthur is not actually blond.”

    Merlin is the one being interrogated by the Withfinder. Bad news for Aredian: Merlin + closed spaces + no food = an 'episode'. Chaos ensues.
