    Summary

    Arthur and Merlin have been best friends since childhood and have always shared everything, including secrets...or did they? Sometimes there are just some things you can't confess to your best friend and being in love with them is one of them. Or so Arthur thought.

    Summary

    Canon Backstory slightly adjusted.

    The Druids recognized Merlin as the prophesized Emrys when he was still a very small child, and have serious expectations for the boy. Merlin's father comes back to Ealdor after they track him down and tell him about his son's destiny. Balinor tries his best to give his son the Lord's upbringing and education that he had as a boy, feeling that Merlin deserves it even if the Druids have the wrong kid. It turns out Balinor was right to fear the attention he would bring to Ealdor. When he goes to Camelot, Merlin fully expects to become an apprentice physician and does not pretend to be a simpleton or accept people thinking that he is one because of this change in his upbringing. Arthur isn't blind, but he doesn't pay much attention to Merlin's quirks until King Bayard's visit.

    Summary

    List of prompts I found that work well for the Merlin universe in particular. Full list on my profile. 1) Squeeze: What might have happened if Balinor had been present for Merlin's birth. Balinor's P.O.V. 2)Scared: Elyan worries over Gwen, Merlin is there to reassure him. Post S4 Ep 11 3)Underwater: Merlin's P.O.V while saving Arthur from the lake in Gates of Avalon. Merlin tires of Morgana's scheming. 19)Merlin discovers Camelot has very consistent problems. Could be considered a parody. 20) Can Merlin and Gaius enlist Uther's help - without tipping him off? Follow up to Divided. 23) Arthur expects a magical sword to be in the hands of an old man. But who's this beautiful young woman? What's her connection to Merlin. And how will Merlin react to Arthur's connection to her?

    Summary

    Arthur and Merlin grow up together. They're brothers, best friends; but when they're teenagers, that bond grows into something more. This story follows their coming-of-age experiences, sexual experimentation, maps the journey of their life together from school to university to work to marriage and kids, their fights, fall-outs, make-ups ... it's the story of an ordinary life, and an extraordinary, overwhelmingly powerful love.

    Also, there's so much sex you'll need tea breaks. Honestly. Go out and buy some biscuits.

    Summary

    Merlin’s life has gone downhill ever since he was sent to Camelot Boarding School: an institution obsessed with Rugby. Being the only openly gay character is tough on its own, but it gets tougher when you get landed with the star rugby player as you’re roommate. So Merlin comes up with a plan to get expelled within the month, which proves easier said than done, especially when juggling new teachers, and new relationships. As time goes on, Merlin realizes that going to school at Camelot isn’t the worst thing to happen to him.

He knows of King Uther 'Butcher' Pendragon but his heir Prince Arthur is a mystery to him. It is immediately clear that they are not friends but maybe not enemies either. Sequel to Moment of Chance.

    Summary

    When she was young, Hunith had been praised for her intelligence. One of the smartest children in the camp, she’d been called.
    Clearly she must have lost that intelligence at some point.
    For what other reason would she have for bringing an unknown man into her home – her home, which was supposed to remain secret to all but her?

    Summary

    After a Great War on Earth, some century or more previously, the people of Camelot escaped the destruction of their kingdom in a fleet of Starships, bound for the tropical planet of Albion.

    Its native people - the Druids - did not like these invaders tearing apart their planet to build a glittering white city, and the Terrible War for Albion began.

    After years of bloody battle, an agreement was reached between Earth’s and Albion’s leaders that they would rule together in harmony, forging a new dynasty by uniting the heirs of their two great households in matrimony: one household of royalty and one household of religion. It was named the Pendragon-Ealdor Alliance, a coalition of physical strength and spiritual power to safeguard their planet from any future invading forces, and to ensure peace among its inhabitants.

    Prince Arthur and Great Mage Merlin are the heirs of their households, destined to marry each other to protect their kingdom and their people. Surprisingly to both of them, they find true love with each other … but the traditional rituals of the Old Religion threaten to tear apart their happiness, and Arthur will do anything to defend Merlin.

    Even if it means destroying Albion.

    Summary

    Magic reigns in Airgialla. Nearly everyone has it in some kind of capacity.

    Hunith is a simple village girl...at least until Prince Balinor Ambrosius shows up at her village and the two fall in love.

    They were meant to be, to the High Priestess Nimueh's chagrin. She doesn't believe that Hunith, with her weak magic and humble origins, is a worthy match for a Prince and Future Dragonlord.

    Balinor and Hunith ignore her threats and are happily married, and blessed with a legendary son that they name Merlin. Their boy's destiny as Emrys is kept a secret so he can live as a normal child...but what happens when Nimueh gets word of it?
