    Summary

    The lake would still be there, staring back at him.

    Taunting him for remembering, for being alive.

    "I hope you’re resting, Arthur. I hope you’re not waiting too," he spoke to the darkness, his fingers gripping at the counter as his eyes closed.

     

    yet another fix-it fic because I need it

    Summary

    Arthur is the king of Pendragon Penitentiary, and his Knights are down one member. The skinny, black-haired boy among the newest crop of inmates may just fit the vacancy in his gang and in his heart, if he can get the stubborn idiot to let down his guard.

    Summary

    He has worn the facade of Emrys for an eternity, so long in fact that he’s forgotten what it had been like to wear another skin.

    Title taken from Arthur’s quote in ‘Dragoon The Great’ - “Your eyes. We’ve met somewhere before.”

    Summary

    Merlin Emrys, otherwise known as pro hero Warlock, is doing a guest speech for UA’s hero course. No one knows exactly how Nezu managed to convince the rather reclusive hero to come.
    There were several more public and popular heroes present, Hawks, Best Jeanist, a few lesser known heroes, Wavebringer, Rainstorm, Demonite, and two underground heroes, Icetrack and Mudslide. Heck, Endeavor was there, he’d be badgered into agreeing by his PR team, but he was there.
    But Warlock was the only international hero, his quirk was that he could move things with his mind, this included the air, he was often confused with having a wind quirk, but no, he was just very good at using it.
    And to make it even cooler, his eyes glowed gold whenever he used his powers.
    But that didn’t explain this.

    Summary

    Since Arthur Pendragon miraculously returned from the dead, he's been struggling to get used to the vastly different world around him. One thing is for certain, however: there's always one thing that is a constant in his life, one thing to ground him, and that's Merlin. And Merlin is incredibly observant and finds a way to make Arthur's anxiety a bit more manageable.

    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

    Merlin was dead set on being a sad man by a lake until Arthur returned, honestly, he was!

    Only, Sir Leon showed up in that hideous blouse and Merlin knew he needed one. And then there was just so much to see and just so much to do, and yes, maybe he got a little distracted on the way. Well, you can never say Merlin didn’t know how to enjoy life.

    Otherwise known as Merlin and Leon get in far too many ridiculous situations and Freya has to deal with these idiots. Vaguely inspired by a tumblr prompt I found and lost.

    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

    When the Avengers are forced to ask for help to defeat the universe's newest threat, Tony never expects King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table to show up at his door. He also never expects his intern-turned-almost-son to go missing within the same week. As the Avengers scramble to both find Peter and deal with the looming threat of Thanos, the Knights realize that one of their friends is also missing: Merlin. Could the two disappearances be connected? And what does any of it have to do with the return of King Arthur?

    Alternative title: And I Look For You In The Spaces In-Between

    -

    The old man smiles again, pulling out a handkerchief and wiping his mouth and hand. The blood makes Arthur’s stomach curl.

    “There are worse fates than death,” the man say, tired. Relieved, maybe. But regretful.

    Arthur crosses his arms over his chest to hide the way his hands are shaking.
     

    Or: Arthur meets a peculiar old man at a garden party who he has never met before but inexplicably knows.

    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

    “I can’t forgive you for poisoning me, Merlin,” Morgana says at last.
    It wasn’t just the poison. It was making her think herself a monster. Morgana thinks Merlin knows this too.
    “And I have not forgiven you for Camlann,” replies Merlin.

    Or: a long-overdue meeting. A reincarnated Morgana runs into Merlin on her campus, and remembers.
    Mostly soft h/c with minimal comfort; Canon compliant.
