    Summary

    "On the house, since it's yer first time here, I reckon," the barmaid says, sliding a tankard toward Merlin, who, like the fool he was, smiles gratefully, and takes a careful sip of his ale; his lips tremble at the bitterness, while Arthur watched him with a clouded expression.
    First time?

    OR,

    The one time Merlin goes to the tavern, and spills the beans-- quite literally, and uses magic to clean them up.

    Summary

    From the other side of their muddy battlefield Hunith watched in almost slow motion as her son pushed his childhood best friend out of the way and blocked the fateful path of the flying arrow before it hit the Prince.

    The world stood still. A silence filled moment that seemed to stretch forever. Then there was movement all around her all the villagers rushed forward, watching as Arthur gave an almost feral battle cry as he drove his sword through Kanen’s chest, finally defeating their last remaining enemy.

    -

    Set in s01e10. Just when they think they’ve defeated all of Kanen’s men, Merlin gets hit by the arrow meant for Arthur.

    "Who're you?"
    "I'm Arthur. Why are you upset?"
    "He stole my coat!"
    Arthur frowns. "Your coat? But– it's only a coat, surely it's not something to get so upset about?"

    Summary

    “Who’s at the door?” Arthur’s voice calls as Merlin continues gaping, the color all but gone from his face. “Merlin?”

    Arthur makes his way over and places his hand on Merlin’s shoulder, frowning at the lack of a reaction. He turns to face the woman standing on their front porch, knowing she’s responsible for Merlin’s reaction, “I’m sorry, you are?”

    “Freya. My name is Freya,” The brunette whispers, her fingers interlocking nervously.

    Arthur glances at her protruding stomach and suddenly, Merlin’s shock makes much more sense.

    Summary

    After a week, he stops counting the days. He sleeps a lot, pacing when he doesn't, five steps forward, five steps down, five steps back, five steps up, walking in a square. The pain in his cheek and knees has diminished, then gone, and that's how he knows time's passed. He misses everything, painfully at first but then settling as a dull ache in his chest as he starts to forget things. Arthur's laugh, Gwen's curly hair, the smell of Gaius' herbs, it's been too long, too long on his own in the dark with no sound that he hasn't made, nothing to smell, nothing, nothing, nothing.

     

    Uther locks Merlin up to stop him influencing his son.

    Summary

    He turns over, punching his pillow. The words of the knights spin through his mind, "nothing but a servant" and "no interest in your opinion" and "keep your mouth shut, or I'll shut it for you" running, twisting his thoughts. By the time the sun rises, filtering in through his window, he's almost convinced himself that they've always thought of him like this.

    Merlin struggles after the encounter with the Lamia.

    Summary

    Merlin suffers a small accident that turns him into a five-year-old kid. While Gaius works on an antidote, Arthur agrees to take care of Merlin, unaware that he will embark on a crazy week in which, thanks to this strange and at the same time familiar child, he will get to know his servant better and begin to understand what he really feels for Merlin.

    This is a tale full of Arthur being protective, of Merlin being Merlin, and of the two of them being the best duo in the history of television. It contains magically appearing chickens, overly sincere children, princes wanting to be swallowed up by the earth, veiled confessions, bedtime stories, entrenched secrets and agonizing doubts. Featuring Gwen being the kindest and most generous soul in Camelot and Lancelot and Gwaine being the great friends that they always are. The rest of the knights, Gaius, and a decrepit Uther complete the scene.

    Warning: in this story everyone adores Merlin. After all, isn't this what the original show is about?

    Summary

    Sir Elis stared at him for a moment, and a panic rose in the back of Merlin’s throat at the mad grin that spread across his face.

    He liked this.

    Merlin was going to be sick.

    Or

    When Camelot receives a new knight, he’s not aware of the countless exceptions made for Merlin. He’s just another insolent servant in his eyes, and he immediately takes a strong disliking to him.

    Summary

    Gritting his teeth against the pain shooting up his leg with every step, Merlin shifts the heavy tray to a more comfortable position. In the process he bashes his elbow, sloshing the jug and causing him to bite down a yelp. Great. As if he doesn't have enough injuries. He curses everything, the visiting knights, Uther, even Arthur for being so damned oblivious now when he wasn't two weeks ago.

    An asshole knight visits Camelot and Merlin has to serve him.

    Summary

    "Put your arm in here," he snaps, and Merlin bites back a hiss at the sting from the cool water. As Arthur unrolls bandages, he says sharply, "what the hell were you thinking? Were you thinking? What on earth possessed you to put your arm in a burning fireplace?"

    Merlin makes a disconcerted noise and Arthur looks at him intently, frown furrowing his brow. He looks, really looks, and Merlin wonders vaguely what he's seeing. The tiredness, the fear, the shadows. He knows he looked a mess earlier and that was before the execution.

    Merlin freaks out during the execution of a sorcerer.
