    Summary

    She expects it to be Alaric asking for extra sugar again or Alice, her next-door neighbor, asking her for help with one of her recipes. Maybe even Beatrice – who has always disliked her for some reason – to come down and complain about something or other she has done.

    Whatever the case, she was certainly not expecting to see her son standing outside, his head bowed, rain pelting down on top of him.

    OR:

    After Balinor's death, Merlin visits his mother.

    Summary

    Merlin, Arthur, and the knights each have to face the likeness of the person who's death they feel most guilty about. They quickly realize that secrets are going to come out, and the only way they are getting out alive is by accepting support from those around them.

     

    This work was heavily inspired by a post by bitsandbobsofwriting on tumblr (however, I did change and add some stuff from their original outline). Please check out their blog, it has some amazing posts and I absolutely LOVE it!

    Summary

    Arthur was born of magic. Scared and unsure of how to use his power and a father who hates all that is magic, will he and his new friend Merlin be able to learn and co-exist in a world that was made of magic?
    Who will magic call her own in the end?

    Excerpt:
    “Can magic corrupt a person?” Arthur hated how weak he sounded, but it is truly something he didn’t understand and he wanted to know the truth.
    “Is a sword evil or good?” Merlin countered the question slightly. He knows that Arthur needs to see that magic is neutral that it is the wielder who manipulates it.
    “Neither.” Arthur gave Merlin an unsure look.

    Summary

    When Uther Pendragon gets a clue about the legendary dragon island, a place where dragons and the last kin of the dragon lords are said to live,
    he sends out his son and his knights to find it. And destroy it.
    The war path, however, did not calculate the storm that was about to come.
    And sooner than expected, Merlin and Arthur find themselves alone on the island.
    Faced with Merlin's past that only he is aware of. And secrets about Balinor, that should not have come to light this way.
    And to top it all of, Merlin is alone with Arthur. Who doesn't even know that he's already confessed.

    Oh yeah. And let's not forget the clusterfuck that Sir Leon has to deal with. :)

    Summary

    The Dragon Lords once lived and ruled happily in Camelot. That all changed after the Battle of Camelot. Now they live in the Wilds, No Man's Land, a place where clans and dragons rule. A routine errand to collect herbs for Gaius gets complicated when Merlin ends up saving the life of one of Camelot's best knights. Which begs the question; how and why would a knight from an enemy kingdom come to be in the middle of nowhere?

    Merlin has the tendency to accept the advice of others only at the most inopportune moments. So, what happens if Merlin ignores Gaius' and the Dragon's advice about Morgana? What happens to Arthur when he does that? What happens to destiny?

    Or:

    Merlin does his best to stop taking shit from the goddamn dragon.

    Summary

    Arthur is the Prince of Wales and the heir to the British throne. Merlin... well, Merlin is the son of a Welsh chef. Thrown together by luck, or perhaps fate, they both grow up in Buckingham Palace and become close friends, despite their differences.

    As an Alpha, royal duty calls for Prince Arthur to marry well and produce an heir with an Omega, once he has finished university and his military service. Merlin is left heartbroken at the thought, with a huge secret of his own - one that could see him forbidden from being with Arthur ever again.

    Set over nearly thirty years, this is the tale of Merlin Emrys and HRH Prince Arthur Pendragon, bound together by destiny, love, and just a little bit of magic.

    Summary

    “Hello, Arthur” he greeted softly. The baby smiled at its name. “It’s me, your good ol' Merlin – making sure that you don’t die any horrific deaths, because you’re a prat who can’t take care of himself.” The baby made agreeing noises. Merlin huffed.

    “Your Royal Highness is as eloquent as ever” he commented, lifting the babe. “Let’s take a little walk now, shall we?”

    Arthur giggled.

    Merlin took it as a yes.

    He overstepped the body of the fainted maid. His little Arthur would have no need for such luxuries during growing up. He was going to be a people’s man, with the education befitting a prince.

    He was going to be successful where Merlin’s Arthur wasn’t.

    The time where Emrys was needed the most had already passed, years before his own birth - so he makes a beeline right back to it.

     

    Or, what started as a one-shot and evolved into lots of small stories containing a more modern Arthur, a less exasperated Merlin, the camelotian character relevance and dying expectancy growing and much more!

    Summary

    [One hunting trip. That’s all Arthur wanted. One trip that didn’t involve dangerous magical creatures or bandits or other non-traditional hindrances. For once he would like for his biggest problems to be a damp sleeping bag.
    But no, it could never be that easy. Arthur’s camp was long forgotten as he dangled from the claws of the dragon. He’d woken up to see a dark figure standing over him and the next thing he knew he was dangling hundreds of meters in the air with a pounding headache.]
    Or, Merlin is a dragonlord, the son of the dragonlord Balinor who rules over the dragons in the North. Arthur is the prince Merlin is instructed to kidnap. Balinor is the exasperated father and general who just wanted to legalize magic but accidentally set his son up with the child and heir of his greatest enemy.
    Whoops.

    Summary

Arthur, Gwen, Gaius, and the Knights of the Round Table seek out the Druids to find out everything they can about Merlin and his magic in hopes they can find their friend and bring him home.

    Summary

    In the midst of capturing a magical creature, Merlin is transported to a world where Camelot is home to thousands of magic-users. King Uther is nowhere to be found, Arthur is a prince again, and Queen Ygraine sits on the throne.

    Merlin plans to get back to his own reality, to his own Camelot. To do that, however, he must have access to information that is inside a shielded castle protected by powerful sorcerers. The only way in is to participate in the Apprentice Exam and be an apprentice to a magic-user included in Camelot's court. Should be easy . . . right?

    Conspiracies are afoot and Merlin just knows that, somehow, he is or will be involved. Just his luck.
