    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

    Arthur has always had distant dreams of leaving Camelot. They were never more than a wistful fantasy, at least once he grew up.

    Finding out about Merlin’s magic changes everything though, and not only because Arthur would do more to keep Merlin safe than he cares to admit. What follows are secrets upon secrets, allowing the dreams to slip back in as all his father’s lies unravel around him. Slowly but surely, Camelot feels less like a home and more like a gilded cage, and Arthur isn’t so certain anymore whether he’s the right person to carry this legacy. If he even wants to.

    One final secret, one opportunity, and suddenly the dreams aren’t mere dreams anymore. Merlin wouldn’t be Merlin if he didn’t follow wherever Arthur goes, and as they try to outrun Uther’s manhunt for them, they have to learn to live a life that’s about more than duty, other’s expectations, and a destiny that has never once cared for them.

    Or: Arthur long since expected that one day, he might have to flee Camelot with Merlin. He just never thought that he would be the reason.

    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

    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

    Hi, friends! While I work on new content I thought I’d share this script I wrote for a creative writing class back in high school. I got a B- because I didn’t bother with perfect script format and got slightly carried away, but I’m sure you can forgive me for that. This hypothetical episode takes place after Sword in The Stone Pt 2, albeit in a slightly altered timeline. It can either be considered an immediate continuation from Agravaine's death scene or a new first episode of the fifth season. The major changes from canon are as follows:

    Arthur and Gwen’s relationship, canonically put on hold during season four by Agravaine being a dick, is still on hold during this time.

    Isolde is alive.

    Morgana never turned evil, and her magic is known to the audience but not to any other characters.

    The main villain of season 4 was Morgause, who worked with Agravaine. She was killed prior to Agravaine’s death in the previous episode.

    Everyone is just a tiny bit gayer.

    I’ll share it in parts to keep things interesting (and hopefully give myself time to edit it so that it is beyond a B- work.) I hope you enjoy!

    Summary

    In a dead world, where everyone had succumbed to a sleeping curse and died a decade ago, Arthur Pendragon lives with his sister Morgana in an empty castle, searching through books day by day, looking for a way to save the world. Sometimes, in his head, he hears a lonely voice - it's probably just his imagination. But today, the voice tells him of an old artefact that could finally bring everyone back and save the world.

    Meanwhile, Merlin also spends his days searching through books and hearing a voice in his head. And today, he might have just found a way to save the world.

    Written in 24 hours for the Tournament of Champions for the Merlin Fic Book Club server on Discord.

    Summary

    It was a sword stuck in an anvil, and the little plaque beside it read, in neat brass letters: Whoso pulleth this sword from the anvil shall be declared rightwise king of all England.

    “Well that’s a bit rubbish, isn’t it?” said Arthur.

    In which Morgana and Merlin team up, Arthur fights with his dad, and Guinevere has tea with a dragon.

    Summary

    “You are accused of sorcery. By the laws of Camelot, I hereby sentence you to death,” the king’s voice was cold, and quite frankly, bored, as he sentenced yet another sorcerer to die by the pyre...

    ...“He’s not really Merlin, he doesn’t really have magic! If you kill him you’ll make a huge mistake!”...

    ...The crown prince of Camelot would be burned at the pyre by his own father. For conjuring harmless butterflies. By accident. And no one would ever even know that Arthur would really be dead...

    Summary

    There was only one slave in all of Camelot. One young man who was discovered to be a holder of magic, had given that specific punishment. He was the Prince's own manservant. The King was mortified and embarrassed to have been the one who gave the warlock a position so close to the throne. He elected that the man should be made into an example. One so poignant that no other warlock would dare pull a similar stunt.
