    Summary

    Arthur, Merlin, and the Knights of the Round Table must travel to the Isle of Mona, invited by the eccentric royal family to help teach Arthur about governing a kingdom where magic is a free practice. As a condition of Morgana's surrender the ban was lifted in Camelot and Arthur asked Merlin to learn magic so he had someone he could trust to help him govern. Merlin has been playing the struggling apprentice for months, learning everything he can and pretending not to already know it all.
    However, when they land in Mona, all the magic users recognize Emrys and treat him as such. Merlin is forced to confess all to his king and the knights, who agree that until the treaty is signed and they return home, they are going to have to act as if this is all normal. Cue shenanigans, tournaments, worshipers, and more secrets than Arthur knows how to deal with.
    The story is a slow burn and a lot is going on, Merlin is polyamorous and Arthur decides he can live with that. This is my first long story, I will try to update often, let me know how I am doing!

    Summary

    Bereft of the emotions that should have come at the implications of the sentence, Uther's tone is stoic as if his own son is a common prisoner. “You are to leave Camelot by nightfall. If we find you have returned to the grounds of this kingdom we will have no choice but to carry out your original sentence in the highest order.”

    Exiled and disinherited? Brilliant.


    An AU where Uther, under the influence of Troll!Catrina and Goblin!Gaius legitimately disinherits Arthur and he must deal with the consequences thereof in an attempt to reclaim Camelot.

    Summary

    In "The Darkest Hour", Gaius wasn't sure what it will take to repair the tear in the veil between worlds (blood sacrifice was merely a guess) and Kilgharrah insisted that "the spirit world demands no sacrifice", that "it is the demands of the Cailleach".

    What if... the Cailleach asked for something other than blood sacrifice? What if she asked for the two halves to be made whole instead?

    Summary

    Arthur is the reigning king of Camelot. He spends his mornings training new knights, his afternoons in council, his nights with Merlin, and by all accounts, he should be serenely happy. It's only when his nights grow restless that shadows begin to lengthen in the crevices of his life. Merlin's nightmares jerk them both awake in the hours before dawn, and Merlin's face grows taut and strained with secrets as the days pass by. Arthur tries fruitlessly to get the truth out of him, only to be met with hostility and anger, and turns to frustration himself. It's in the intimate silence of night when Merlin at last tells him the truth, and in the aftermath, Arthur is left to realize that there is no such thing as being unnatural, only what he has seen of human nature, and what he hasn't.

    Summary

    "Why did you never tell me?" He interrupts hoarsely. "I was going to marry you."

    "You would've chopped my head off." Merlin shifts from foot to foot, his discomfort clear. "I'm not sure what to do. I don't know how to fix this."

    "I don't want to see you dead, Merlin. But I don't want to see you." Arthur takes a deep breath, steeling himself for what he's about to say. He looks into Merlin's ocean blue eyes one last time and turns around, walking to the door. "You will leave Camelot at first light tomorrow. You return upon pain of death."

    OR:

    Where Arthur tries to marry Merlin, Merlin tries to obey orders and Gaius tries to retain his sanity and just one of them succeeds. Good luck guessing which one!

    Summary

    Arthur has long since begrudgingly admitted to himself that his feelings might run a bit deeper than just a harmless case of infatuation. But it isn't until Merlin's mortally injured in an ambush that Arthur learns to what lengths he's willing to go to save him.

    Especially when it turns out that his manservant is also a sorcerer and has magically bound himself to Arthur.

    And why is it that Arthur doesn't exactly mind?

    Summary

    Ever since Arthur woke up to a throbbing headache and Gaius and Merlin at his bedside, he's been... remembering things. Kind of. When he dreams, he sees familiar faces. Like Sophia, her father, his own father, and Merlin. But they certainly don't feel like his usual dreams.

    Still. None of what he sees lines up with Merlin's story, or Gaius's, so it can't have been what actually happened. Right?

    His life gets even more out of hand when a druid boy comes to Camelot and Arthur catches Morgana hiding him in her chambers, with Merlin's aid, of course.

    Summary

    "It all happened too fast.
    In one moment, laughter filled the banquet hall, in the next, an unrecognized man was lunging at King Arthur with a brandished knife. Arthur was so caught off guard that it took him far longer than it should have to realize that the assailant was frozen in mid-air. Arthur's eyes scanned the hall, landing on his manservant. Instead of finding the usual blue of his eyes, Merlin’s glowed with a supernatural gold."
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Or, in one split decision, Merlin saves Arthur's life yet risks his own in the process.

    Summary

    Meredith remained silent, fingers tracing the rough surface of the wall. Her gaze darted around as the realization set in. Her eyes widened. “Try and stop me..” she uttered, not noticing the raven's eyes narrow further.

    “What are you talking about?” she heard Morgana ask, still eyeing the maiden suspiciously. Meredith only chuckled, her eyes narrowed, and a smile shadowing her expression. She looked up, fixing Morgana with a smirk.

    I think it’s time do to a little something stupid.

    ------

    When a rambunctious, shape-shifting druid, that seems far too well acquainted with the royals, comes to Camelot, the courses of destiny and fate take a whole new turn. One where the future and present seem far more perilous than one may remember.

     

    Title is based on the song by Ye Banished Privateers with the same title

    Summary

    "I'm not sure what I'd have done."
    "And I didn't want to put you in that position.”

    For better or for worse, Arthur knows Merlin's secret. The problem? Merlin doesn't know Arthur knows. This leaves Arthur with a predicament... and an opportunity. A test. Three trials and three opportunities for Merlin to prove he doesn't deserve death. Arthur hopes he will pass them. Maybe then the image of Merlin's golden eyes will stop haunting him.

    (AKA a really in-depth character study of Arthur's psyche but with a giant dose of angst and suspense because DRAMA. Also served with a side helping of Merlin character analysis and difficult moral calls. Lastly, this is really how I wanted Season 3 to go and was my prediction at the time. I stand by it!)
