    Summary

    Three weeks after his return, a visit to a local park seems like a good way to help Arthur learn about the modern world. Who knew that there would be so many dogs at the park? Or that they would like Arthur so much?

    Summary

    What if… Throughout the centuries, the magic in Merlin grew? Like, every sorcerer/witch and so on has a limit for growth yeah? Some level that they reach and that’s it. No more power for you. But Merlin /doesn’t/ since he’s not /with/ magic but instead /is/ magic. So. Like. It grew with him and he learned more and more but he’s all alone right? Has no Anchor. So he’s doing all he can, spreading the knowledge, educating people on and about magic and for a while it works. Magic is accepted, taught, even revered all over the world. The world prospers. Peace and harmony grows. Yeah, sure, there’s badies from time to time but in general all is well yeah?

    But… All this power that keeps on growing inside. What if it… Starts corrupting him? Like. Unintentionally, bit by bit. He doesn’t even notice that some of his decisions sHOuLd seem… Wrong, maybe..? But.. Power grows and grows and morality blurs for him. After all, he’s all alone. He has no one there for him. He’s always there for the EntiRe PoPulaTion of the WoRLd, but HE’S alone.

    So what if… Arthur returns because Albion’s greatest need is to be saved… From Merlin..?

    Summary

    “You can’t meet Arthur like this.” Mordred gave up on trying to phrase things delicately when Merlin said he didn’t want to kill him.
    “Why the hell not?”
    Mordred grimaced, unsure of how to explain the nuances of the 21st century to a thousand year old warlock. “Arthur is probably some fuckboy business major who's going to call the cops when he sees you, greasy and skeletal, following him around. He’s not going to remember you like this. You’re gross and jaded and you make people uncomfortable. You’re not Merlin anymore, Emrys, you’re not even human.”

     

    Title based on the song "Hard To Find" by The National.

    Summary

    The year was still 2020. The world had ended shockingly fast. Merlin could imagine asking people who had never lived to see the world as it once was: "Can you imagine it? All that you’ve come to known, all that you’ve struggled to live with, all of it — snatched away in an instant? In mere months? Can you imagine it? The world wiped clean?"
    And if some part of Merlin still hoped that he wouldn’t live long enough to be able to say that, well, he kept that buried deep.

    Summary

    More than 1,000 years after Arthur's death, Merlin is still waiting for his King's return.

    He waits in an abandoned, yet fully decorated observatory on the shore of the Lake of Avalon. An observatory that he has decorated to his heart's content, a place truly fit for a King.

    He couldn't wait for the day that Arthur would see it.

    Work in progress - modern-day Merlin. A lovely mix of angst and fluff.

    Summary

    “I was running from you in every way possible. Does that make you happy, hearing the truth? The truth that your friend is an absolute coward, like you said,” Merlin’s voice cracks, tears pushing their way through his throat. Arthur takes a few steps forward so he’s standing next to Merlin, but Merlin doesn’t look toward him. He keeps his eyes down on the grain of the table.

    Arthur falters, “I never said-“

    “Yes, you did, and you were right,”

    Takes place after my other story 'Eyes'. Arthur is back, and everything is good. At least, it should be. Merlin seems to want nothing to do with Arthur. He keeps Arthur around but doesn't talk to him, or explain anything. Arthur is upset.

     

    Merlin may have thought he healed, but you don't heal in just one night after a thousand years of pain.

    Summary

    As the train rushed out of the station, Merlin turned to thank the person behind him. A pair of very familiar blue eyes gazed back. Merlin's breath caught in his throat for a moment, and all he could do was stare. Everything else seemed to fade away, except for one thought.

    'Arthur Pendragon is alive again.'

    Summary

    The Once and Future King sleeps in the hills, waiting to return in Britain’s hour of greatest need. This much we know. Arthur’s name echoes down to us out of the Dark Ages. But why? When that terrible hour finally comes, what will happen?

    My theory involves an ancient Volvo, a lot of bees, Arthur in pyjamas from Marks and Spencer, a random dog, some very old Anglo-Saxon magic, doom, death and the serpent-spawn of a dark god. [Thanks to thesmallhobbit for beta-reading & encouragement]

    Summary

    Много долгих лет Мерлин ждал. Вторую половину его души, его жизни. Он был рожден, чтобы служить Артуру. А значит, и чтобы ждать его возвращения. Даже если это заняло тысячу лет. Даже если ожидание, казалось, никогда не кончится.

    До тех пор пока, однажды, это не произошло.

    Когда Артур выходит из озера Авалон через 1500 лет после своей смерти, он находит мир, отличный от того, который он знал. Столкнувшись с потерей всех, кого он любил, и угрозой надвигающегося пророчества, Артур должен понять, что значит быть не просто королем, но "будущим" королем. Мерлин делает все возможное, чтобы направлять его, изо всех сил стараясь скрывать свою любовь и страх потерять его снова.

    Summary

    The time has come for Arthur to return… though it’s not when anyone predicted.

    ~~~
    The air couldn’t come into his lungs fast enough, and Merlin felt his hands tremble from the poison taking its toll. “Th-thank you for your service.”

    The stranger pulled his hood off, and sincere brown eyes appeared from behind the overgrown bangs, accompanied by the hint of a smirk.

    “It’s an honor to serve you, Merlin.”
    Merlin froze, all of his best dreams and worst nightmares from the last 3 years compiling into the figure crouching before him. He knew those eyes, that voice; knew it as well as he knew himself.

    “...Arthur?”

    Summary

    Merlin looked up to find Arthur standing in the entrance to his sitting room, his mouth in a frown, a line between his brows, and his gaze fixed on the floor.

    His eyes were rimmed red, and Merlin could see tear stains on his cheeks.

    Merlin’s heart dropped in concern - yes, many things had upset him, but rarely did Arthur cry - but he lowered his book and asked calmly, “Yes, what is it, Arthur?”

    Arthur took in a shaking breath.  “This may be an odd question, but,” he swallowed, and looked up to meet Merlin’s gaze, looking both vulnerable and determined all at once, “Could you take me somewhere where I could purchase a ring?”

    Summary

    It was nice, he thought, being away from the noise of the city. When the policemen trotted by on their horses, the birds chirped in the trees, and Merlin closed his eyes, he could pretend for just a moment that he was in Camelot. That he was home.

    “Merlin! What the bloody hell is going on?!” A familiar voice called, albeit one he hadn’t heard in many years. Maybe he’d imagined a little bit too much…

    -

    Arthur died, and so Merlin waited.

    Just when Merlin begins to give up, visitors from his past appear in a most unexpected way, and a villain from long ago seeks revenge.
