    Summary

    Do you want multiple magic reveals, A narrator whose only job seems to be sarcasm, and a plot that keeps Lance alive? Well. Here you go I guess—

    -—-

    Gwaine found himself in very unique situations whenever near to Merlin.

    (Yes. Seeing Merlin drag dead people into their graves is a unique situation.)

    Gwaine drinks and Merlin assassinated people. No biggie.

    -—-

    "Uh?" Lancelot said. He directed to continue.

    "This isn't.." Merlin gestured with a hand to the body on the floor. 

    He'd been dragging it.

    It was exactly what it looked like.

    -—-

    Some knights and an assassin: best buds for life.

    -—-

    (I feel like this is on crack, but at the same time I'm trying so desperately to keep the "plot" on track. Takes place in the year between S3 and S4 and will continue into S4 whenever I feel like I can write a plot)

    Summary

    Uther hears that Arthur is the Once and Future King foretold in a Druidic prophecy, destined to join Emrys in returning magic to Camelot. Uther declares Arthur a traitor, forcing him to flee Camelot with Merlin. The catch? Arthur has no idea who Emrys is, let alone any desire to fulfill the prophecy. Merlin is pretty sure this destiny business just got a whole lot more complicated…

    (Rated T for TWs listed in the tags; those TWs will be flagged in chapter notes when applicable. No slash, smut, or profanity.)

    Summary

    'None shall be harmed. There has been enough.'

    This time, Hunith watches everyone’s faces. Clearly they hear it- feel it- too. 

    'Each person in this room has played a part in my child’s destiny. It is time you understand.'

    “Understand what…?”, Percival asks quietly.

    “Your child?”, Arthur echoes, much more forceful.

    Hunith’s face whips to Merlin. His brows are drawn together, his eyes so distant, on something unfathomable. This is the part of her son Hunith can’t reach. This is beyond her. 

    As much as it pains her, Magic was his mother first.

     
    'Relearn the past. It will become clear.'

    ------------------------
    Magic decides its child has been alone long enough. It brings those relevant to the crystal cave to share some of its memories pertaining to its child. Merlin and his friends watch him arrive in Camelot from a fresh set of eyes.

    Summary

    The world was strange. There was a time where almost every other person had some sort of magical ability. Whether it was making toys hover through the air or helping bathwater to stay warm longer. But some had abilities that scared those without. Their vibrant colored hair showed the extent of their powers. While most people would have a few streaks here and there, or color that was only at their nape, it was common knowledge that they held some innate skill with magic. There were many who didn’t know what their ability was, but they held a colored streak that would fade as they grew older. It tended to manifest in many in their adolescence; their magical abilities. If they studied to try to figure out what their ability was, if they didn’t know, then their hair would brighten the closer they got to figuring it out. Once their color settled, their eyes would glow a brilliant gold color when they applied their magic. It was breathtaking to behold.

    Summary

    “It’s over, Morgana,” Arthur says her name like it’s a spell.

    It’s hard to tell what exactly is over; so many things finished one day just to repeat themself the next day, Morgana has learned. Nothing’s ever really over, even when she’s staring at her father’s lifeless frame above Arthur’s shoulder. There are nightmares from which you cannot wake up, even when the monster is long gone.

    OR

    The one where Morgana and Arthur find a way to work things out.

    Summary

    Kilgarrah has been cryptic at best and infuriating at worst. Merlin's not sure what he expected, but surely the great lizard could've given him a heads up that he'd start growing SCALES.
    That's not the least of it, and he can't exactly ask for a work leave to get his brand new claws in order. What's he gonna tell Arthur? And is it going to be even a little bit believable?

    Summary

    In the year 2082, thirty Sorcerers who called themselves “The Pure” took over England in a violent coup, established a magical supremacy, and ruled until Uther Pendragon and his underground forces defeated them. Uther became dictator, taking charge of the country in its State of Emergency. All sorcerers tied to The Pure were publicly executed. Sorcery was declared illegal. Uther's peacekeeping Patronus force crushes rebellions. All who are suspected of practicing magic disappear or are executed. England grows increasingly restless under Uther Pendragon. Laws on sorcery have begun to change in other countries, and civil unrest stirs again in England herself.

    In this changing political landscape, Uther Pendragon’s son Arthur finds himself at University, caught between his father’s expectations and his own growing unease about his father’s policies and persecution of magic. His friend and classmate from childhood, Merlin Astur, has kept his secret as long as he's been alive. In the face of a changing world, threats to his closest friends, and an ancient Druid legend, he struggles to keep his magic hidden while protecting those dear to him.

    Summary

    “Gwen.” Her own brother joins the show, scowling. “Stay out of this.”

    Gwen doesn’t. “How dare someone like you,” she pokes at the direction of the knight, because if Leon thinks so lowly of Merlin, then she shan’t think highly of her once friend. “Speak to royalty like that?” Leon’s eyebrows are knitting together, which is strange, Gwen was under the impression he had found out long ago – but there is no time for that, because she needs to take it even further. “To your own Queen?” She stands tall and hopefully intimidating.

    What is a snake-woman compared to two Queens?
    In Gwen's humble opinion, a wench who doesn't stand a chance.

    Summary

    Because if there are places where magic survives in the 21st century, one of those places is surely Oxford. Because the fellowship of Camelot deserved happier fates than the show gave them. Because it's hard for a king to save the world, and harder for a prophecy to be broken. And because, though there are many imaginings of what happened to Merlin, surviving into a new world, I wanted to write this one.

    This work is tagged for Arthurian mythology (and related fandoms) because, as some readers may notice, I've borrowed ideas from medieval literature and modern retellings, which will be acknowledged in the respective chapters.

    Weekly updates planned for Wednesdays; begun 10 June 2020. Note as of 20 August: this fic was planned to be finished by the end of the summer; it will not be. It has grown in the telling, and while it is plotted and sketched out to its end, the regularity of updates is very likely to suffer as the academic year begins. Subscriptions recommended to interested parties.
