    Summary

    Merlin leaned backwards, tilting his head back until his golden eyes meet blue ones.
    "Sorcerer…" Arthur whispered.
    "Give me one good reason why I shouldn't run you through right now, sorcerer," Arthur hissed.
    Merlin shrugged. "Probably wouldn't make much of a difference."
    "What?"
    "Oh, nothing. I hope you have more success than me, but I doubt it."
    He untied the fabric from his neck, then shrugged off his shirt and jacket, exposing his scars.
    At this point, there was no point in hiding.

    He looked Arthur in the eyes.

    "If I could die, don't you think I would be dead already?"

    After all, even with magic, his self-inflicted scars never healed
    NOTE: this is really angsty and really sad and has mentions of attempted suicide so if that triggers you please don't read thank you

    Summary

    "Arthur, is it not obvious? Talk to Merlin, really listen to him, and ask his advice, as you always do."

    "I should ask him myself?" he asked, to make sure he'd got it right.

    "Why not? You always ask him for advice or he tells you his advice to your face, even if you don't want to hear it. Why would you change this now, when it affects Merlin as well?"

    Arthur didn't even notice he was nodding and stopped moving. Then he nodded again, gave his wife a kiss and went in search of Merlin.

    Summary

    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I / I took the one less travelled by, / And that has made all the difference. ~ Robert Frost

    What is the truth of fate, of the destiny that shows providence to us in our lives and in ourselves?

    What good was it for Merlin to hear, always, from the Great Dragon Kilgharrah that he was destined to serve Arthur, Arthorius, Mac Aeden - Welsh or Scottish born, Romanised, Anglicized and creator of the glory days of Camelot - as Emrys, the master sorcerer who could never be known for his true power as long as magic was banned.

    Yet if Arthur was destined to die by the hand of a son, in league with his half-sister and known by his dearest love, how could Merlin yet follow such a destiny? Why would he take the dragon's word rather than forging his own path?

    And what would happen if he had chosen a different way?

    Summary

    "You... You have magic?" Arthur gasped out, "You're a sorcerer?"

    Merlin gave Arthur a solemn look, fear evident in his eyes.

    "Yes, Arthur."

    "God Merlin." Arthur said.

    "You must have been so lonely."

    (A reveal fic, bc you can not tell me that Arthur 'you're my only friend and I couldn't bear to lose you' Pendragon would really just sulk in response to that)

    Summary

    Of all the ways Arthur and the knights could've found out about his magic, Merlin hadn't thought it'd be due to a sparrow. There will be a happy ending, but it's gonna take a while.

    "Arthur was terrified when he saw Merlin make up his mind to jump. He put on a burst of speed, willing his body to give everything he had so he could just-reach out and….He crashed at full speed into the warlock, knocking them both out of breath, but most importantly, far away from the edge of the ravine. Merlin fought him, kicking and clawing for escape, but it was clear that whatever had fueled him for so long was gone, and eventually the kicking and punching and shouting was gone, and Merlin wept in Arthur’s arms, trembling hard.

    “Sorry, so sorry, so so sorry. ‘M so sorry, Arthur,” he sobbed desperately, and Arthur held him close, heart racing and eyes wet. “I’m so sorry, please don’t burn me. I’m so sorry. I didn’ mean to, I was born with it.” Merlin cried, and Arthur shushed him gently."

    Summary

    I just finished a rewatch of s4, and I have a lot of feelings, chief among them being that if Arthur's claiming of Excalibur, return to Camelot, and marriage to Gwen are to inaugurate Albion's golden age, this is how it should begin.

    This fic features conversation in which Arthur exhibits canon-typical levels of misogyny and tendencies to needle Merlin, while Merlin exhibits canon-typical levels of exhaustion and anxiety. But also, I wanted to highlight Arthur's commitment to royal administration, which we see more inconsistently. I hypothesize a golden age in which Arthur Pendragon is capable of being sincere about his own emotions for longer than 0.5 seconds. Is this self-indulgent? probably. Enjoy!
