    That night in the cave, a man was supposed to have been pushed off by his possessed best friend and potential love interest and land in front of his other love, whose memories would be erased of him to save her from the trauma of seeing him die. That man was also supposed to come back a vengeful wraith, determined to get revenge on the friend who he thought betrayed him, the one who lost his arm to a kitsune disguised as a dog.

    But that didn’t happen.

    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

    Around the same time Merlin ‘disappears’ (or visits his mother, as Gaius says), a small black cat is seen roaming Camelot. At first, Arthur doesn’t mind it. Then he realises how smitten everyone seems to be with the cat and how its eyes gleam in an intimidating sorcerer-yellow. But it’s just a cat, it can’t be a sorcerer planning to take Camelot apart by having everyone fall in love with a little kitty. Turns out it is indeed no harm to Camelot, but it did capture Arthur’s heart.

    or in which Merlin is a cat and Arthur is the jester of his own court

    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!)

    Summary

    All his life, Arthur has been told by his father that as a man, he needs to act a certain way. There are certain things he must take part in—certain things he must enjoy—because that’s what real men do.

    And then, he meets Merlin and then Lancelot is thrown into the mix and he finds himself spending much more time around Gaius than he ever has and without his father around to constantly remind him of what it takes to be a man, he starts questioning everything he’s ever known.

    Summary

    “Under Uther’s rule, Camelot was a place of hatred but under yours, it can be a place of love and acceptance. You have the power to change years of hatred and shame, Arthur. You’ve always been destined for great things, as the King, you have the means to grant people the freedom to be who they are and to marry who they love without consequence.”

    Summary

    “I miss Camelot. I miss using horses instead of cars and I miss the way the people spoke to each other and the way the streets smelled and the way the citadel sounded. I miss everyone we used to know. I don’t belong in this world, Merlin, I don’t and I don’t know why I’ve come back. What am I doing here? There’s nothing for me to do, nothing for me to save. What use am I against all these new weapons of war? I don’t belong here and I don’t-”

    Or: the one where coming back from the dead 1500 years later is difficult.

    Summary

    Arthur was used to being trotted out by Uther as Camelot’s shiny, young ambassador. Though he didn’t care much for Cenred, he certainly wasn’t afraid of him. No, it wasn’t Essetir that bred knots in his stomach.

    For reasons that Arthur did not yet understand, it was the humble village of Ealdor that loomed specterlike over the journey ahead.

    When a diplomatic visit to Cenred's kingdom takes Arthur and Merlin through Ealdor, Arthur must confront a secret he has kept from himself since Merlin arrived in Camelot.

    Summary

    Day 4 of Chaos Company's Angstpril2021 challenge --- Prompt: Betrayal

    He had so badly wanted to believe what Merlin had said the night before. So badly wanted to believe that Elyan was possessed and that that was the explanation on why he had attacked him, but Agravaine’s words echoed through his head and the room around him, bouncing off the vaulted ceiling to come back and assault him again.
    “He seeks revenge. You had his sister banished.”
    No, that can’t be it. Why now? Why not when the banishment happened? Why not when they were out on patrol? Why now? Why after so long was now the time that he chose to strike? No, Merlin was right.
