    Summary

    The fifteen hundred years which have passed since the battle at Camlann have not done Merlin any favours.
    He's been left alone without his friends, without his king... and without his magic.

    All this time, Arthur has been watching over Merlin from behind the veil, desperate to find a way to help Merlin restore his magic. When Arthur finally washes up on the shores of Lake Avalon, he's in an unfamiliar world. He doesn't know where to go, but feels a strange pull. Without any other options, he decides to follow it.

    Some things might not be lost to Merlin after all...

    Summary

    Merlin defeated the creature easily. He turned away from his fallen foe and back to the boulder blockade he'd trapped Arthur behind. Too late, Merlin saw the King had found his own way out. He had seen... everything.

    Arthur didn't look angry. He didn't even seem surprised. Just... hurt. Merlin froze when he saw that Arthur was crying. The King hadn't seemed to notice it yet, his eyes lost and face void of emotion, but tear tracks lined his dust-coated cheeks. Arthur didn't cry. It was a rule he rarely disobeyed, his motto, "No man is worth your tears." It took Merlin a second to understand, but he wasn't angry... he was heartbroken.

    Arthur discovers Merlin's magic. Realising that nearly everyone close to him has betrayed him, Arthur blames himself and obsesses over being a perfect king. He finally taps into his potential, follows his beliefs, and becomes the man that he was meant to be. Arthur also discovers he's not what he thought he was and begins keeping secrets of his own. Meanwhile, Merlin repents for his mistakes and learns about Arthur's past. What is Arthur hiding? Can Merlin win back Arthur's trust? Who and what is Arthur Pendragon, really?

    Summary

    Merlin, Leon, Gwaine, Morgana, Gaius, Gwen, and Lancelot wake up in a strange place, lost in a mist and fog. They find Arthur, kneeling with his great golden wings spread out behind him, froze completely in thick ice. It is revealed that during the battle between Arthur and Morgana triggered ancient spell. They are now trapped in Arthur's mind, watching the King's memories, until they understand who he really is. But the past, especially Arthur's, is not a pretty one to behold.

    "It's what he wants, right?" Merlin whispered. He stood, his hand slipping away from Arthur's cold frozen statue and immediately wishing to go back. The warlock crept forward, the horrid screeches still calling to them from behind the tall wooden door, "We can't leave until the spell is complete, can we? I- I will always stand by Arthur's side. Nothing I see could change that."

    Gaius stared at Merlin, a thousand worries and thoughts whirling behind his eyes.

    "Arthur has been through a lot of pain in his life. Can you bear to witness that? I'm not sure I can. Not again," the physician's voice cracked guiltily.

    "Arthur deserves to be seen. No matter how ugly the past is, I will not deny him that," Merlin replied.

    Summary

    Arthur was born of magic. Scared and unsure of how to use his power and a father who hates all that is magic, will he and his new friend Merlin be able to learn and co-exist in a world that was made of magic?
    Who will magic call her own in the end?

    Excerpt:
    “Can magic corrupt a person?” Arthur hated how weak he sounded, but it is truly something he didn’t understand and he wanted to know the truth.
    “Is a sword evil or good?” Merlin countered the question slightly. He knows that Arthur needs to see that magic is neutral that it is the wielder who manipulates it.
    “Neither.” Arthur gave Merlin an unsure look.

    Summary

    The dragon leaned forward. "Your destiny is to protect Uther Pendragon's heir, the one who will be the Once and Future King and unite all of Albion."

    Merlin blinked. "But . . . Uther doesn't have an heir."

    . . .

    In many Arthurian texts, Arthur is raised as a peasant by Sir Ector with no knowledge of his royal lineage. Let's bring that back, shall we?

    Summary

    Arthur, not a day older than on his deathbed and soaked to the bone stares at him in shock.

    There's a steady drip as water pours from Arthur's shoulders, or more likely from the shoulders of whoever is disguised as him. It pours unnaturally, pooling at his bare feet as if he's merely caught in the rain.

    "Who- who are you." It's not a question. Merlin's voice is hard but it betrays him, breaking at the last syllable.

    When a drenched Arthur Pendragon materialises in Camelot ten years later equipped with innate magical abilities, a disillusioned Merlin is offered a second chance at the life he fought for years ago.

    Summary

    The girl tilted her head slightly to the side. “You will be alright Sire, your father is underestimating you. Keep going, this won’t last long.” She closed her hand over Arthur’s.
    His eyes widen as he stared at her. “How?” The words came out with a force.
    “I am a seer, Sire. Your faith isn’t with him.” She trailed off before she squared her shoulders. “Your destiny lies with the Warlord. He is your destiny.”

    Summary

    Merlin has to be careful. He's always known his magic made him different, but living in the anti-magic Camelot makes his existence even more dangerous.

    Arthur is depraved. After all, his father has always told him that magic was a punishment for one's sins. And Arthur most definitely has magic, if all those flying objects have anything to say.

    Or, the one in which both Arthur and Merlin have magic, and they both try to hide it from each other.

    Summary

    Under the rule of King Arthur Pendragon, Camelot has lifted its ban on magic, allowing magic users to roam freely within its walls. Both Arthur and Merlin are overjoyed by this development, and their reasons are more similar than the two of them ever would have thought. As fate foretold, Arthur and Merlin are two sides of the same coin.

    Summary

    Arthur is five years old when his father decides he’s old enough to bear witness to his first execution. He sees two people he cares about burn, and it’s his fault that they are dying. He vows to never use his magic again, because he has seen first hand the damage it can do. So he locks it away, deep inside himself, and tries not to think about the incessant humming in his veins.

     

     

     

    What if Arthur had magic, too?

    Summary

    The wards shouldn't have worked, which is why, as Merlin was relaxing by the fire on a crisp evening in Ireland, the magical tingles were anything but expected. They started in his fingertips and traveled up his arms and down his spine, straight to his toes and back up again, until the tingles became pins and needles and the pins and needles became unbearable tightness in his aching bones. He threw himself from his chair and hurried to his seeing crystal, lying haphazardly on an overturned bowl in the kitchen, and there he saw the person he never thought he’d ever see again.

    Arthur was at Hogwarts.

    My google doc's folders are absolutely full of WIP that may never see the light of day. I have decided that's very unfortunate and way too sad and thus have chosen to let you, my dear readers, read these Works In Progress at your own risk.

    Or

    Interesting, intriguing, and amazing story ideas that I may turn into actual fics at some point. Probably not today tho.
