    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 Arthur's 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 Arthur 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 the 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

    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…

    Summary

    Merlin answers his phone.

    “Anderson.”

    “Is that what you’re going by nowadays?”

    Merlin looks skyward and closes his eyes in a bid for the peace that eludes him so, huffing out a sigh.

    “Lizard man,” he greets. 

    “Hello, young warlock.”

    Merlin hums, scuffing his shoes against the dirt at the side of the ‘road’. 

    “’S’pose you want me to come home for Christmas?”

    “Would it be so terrible?”

    Merlin snorts. “Right, then, wha’d’you want?”

    “I’ve found your Destiny.”

    ----
    Merlin is immortal, even if his memory isn't. He gets flashes, brief impressions, but that's it. He knows Kilgarrah's been around the whole time, and every few decades or so he calls Merlin and tells him he's found his destiny. Merlin can never quite remember what it is, but he goes along, and this time that means partnering and protecting a prat of a detective from the supernatural threats that he doesn't realise he faces.

    Summary

    "Indeed I do. I saw your friend on the news this morning, by the way."
    "But you never watch the local news." And there's no way something like that would've made it to the national news.
    His father shrugs, a dangerous gleam in his eye. "I'm very sorry. Perhaps we should send Nollar round with some flowers. He lives at 12 Excalibur Drive, doesn't he?"
    Arthur freezes. There's no way he could possibly know where Merlin lives unless… would he really be that cruel?
    He catches his father's eye and reads the threat there, clear as day. Uther did this. And if he knows what's good for the both of them, he'll do as he's told and forget about Merlin.
    "Then again, he's probably got enough 'get well soon's. Don't you agree?"
    "Yes, sir."

     

    Uther threatens Merlin's life to force his son to obey him. But Arthur isn't about to just let that stand.

    Fünf Jahre später ist Arthur bereit, wieder mit Merlin zu reden, und sie erkennen, dass sie Albion nur zusammen vereinen und die Prophezeiung erfüllen können.

    ~

    „Irgendjemand oder irgendetwas hat uns hierher zurückgeschickt, genau an den Anfang, mit all unseren Erinnerungen“, sagt Merlin und erst jetzt wird ihm wirklich klar, was das bedeutet. „Stell dir nur vor, was wir alles tun könnten! Wir könnten dafür sorgen, dass sich dieses Mal alles zum Guten wendet.“

    Arthur sieht ihn zweifelnd an. „Können wir die Zukunft denn einfach so verändern?“

    „Ich glaube schon”, antwortet Merlin und Hoffnung und Zuversicht steigen in ihm hoch.

    Five years later, in a war-torn Camelot, Arthur is finally ready to talk to Merlin, and they realize that they can only fulfill the prophecy together, side by side.

    The next morning they wake up in the past, in their young bodies.

    ~

    “Someone or something has sent us back in time, right to the beginning, with all our memories,” Merlin says, and it’s only now that it dawns him what that truly means. “Just imagine everything we could do, everything we could change for the better. We could make everything right this time.“

    Arthur hesitates for a moment. “Can we even change the future?“

    “Yes, I think we can”, Merlin answers with confidence and new-found hope in his voice.

    Summary

    "He's the only man alive who can perform that spell. Well, apart from me," Merlin answered with a slight smirk. Taking both Gwen and Arthur's hands, he walked them inside. They took just a few steps into darkness before a loud voice echoed among the rocks.

    Summary

    Merlin's jobs are as follows: Assistant physician, Prince's Manservant, and Secret Protector of the Once and Future King.
    A sudden influx of magical beasts from a nearby kingdom terrorising Camelot and flushing the Druids out of hiding forces him to take up another one: Emrys, King of the Druids. Of course, he's doing this anonymously, he's gonna need a disguise. No one can know it's Merlin kicking the shit out of stray Chimeras.
    Meanwhile, Arthur is terribly frustrated. His father won't let him out even as magical beasts are rampaging around the kingdom, and people are dying. Well, what Uther doesn't know won't hurt him. But he's gonna need a disguise. No one can know it's Arthur beating the brains out of random water spirits.
    And, sidenote: who's this Emrys guy?

    -----
    Merlin answers threats to Camelot and the Druids as Emrys. Arthur does the same in defiance of his father as The Red Knight. They're medieval superheroes.

    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

    Arthur has always had distant dreams of leaving Camelot. They were never more than a wistful fantasy, at least once he grew up.

    Finding out about Merlin’s magic changes everything though, and not only because Arthur would do more to keep Merlin safe than he cares to admit. What follows are secrets upon secrets, allowing the dreams to slip back in as all his father’s lies unravel around him. Slowly but surely, Camelot feels less like a home and more like a gilded cage, and Arthur isn’t so certain anymore whether he’s the right person to carry this legacy. If he even wants to.

    One final secret, one opportunity, and suddenly the dreams aren’t mere dreams anymore. Merlin wouldn’t be Merlin if he didn’t follow wherever Arthur goes, and as they try to outrun Uther’s manhunt for them, they have to learn to live a life that’s about more than duty, other’s expectations, and a destiny that has never once cared for them.

    Or: Arthur long since expected that one day, he might have to flee Camelot with Merlin. He just never thought that he would be the reason.

    Summary

    And yes, Merlin, Arthur absolutely did need to start stripping in the middle of his room, after training, dropping his clothes on the floor and enjoying the sight of his manservant leaning down to pick them up. Of course, Merlin kept scowling the entire time and refused to start cleaning before Arthur finished 'making a mess, like a five summers old child', but this only gave Arthur the ample opportunity to study Merlin's backside while sipping wine.

    Or, why does Arthur keep going on shirtless all the time?
