    Summary

    “Gorwin is my King,” Merlin says, golden eyes fixed flatly on Arthur. “And I work for him. That’s what it says.”

    “That’s what what says?” Arthur all but roars, wishing he had a sword just so that he could swing it at something. He needs to let all of this anger at something, anything, he’s just not sure at what and he doesn’t really care anymore.

    “The treaty you signed."

    Or:

    Arthur lends Merlin's aid as a sorcerer to an allied kingdom. He doesn't expect to find Merlin, two years later, in shackles, and only a mere echo of the person he used to be.

    Summary

    The teasing remark is already sitting on the tip of Arthur’s tongue but suddenly—suddenly, Arthur is so very tired of this game between them. For months now it has felt as if they have fallen out of step with each other, as if anything either of them said always just landed slightly wrong.

    He is so very tired of walking on eggshells around Merlin, each and every step questioned a hundred times. He is so, so tired of watching Merlin work himself to the bone and wondering whether he is the right person to say anything about it.


    Merlin is Court Sorcerer, Albion's Golden Age is right on their doorstep, and still, things between them are anything but alright. Sometimes, the most obvious answer is the one most difficult to see.

    Summary

    “Camelot needs you.”

    Sometimes, Merlin’s steadfastness can be admirable. At this moment, though, Arthur rather feels like throwing something. 

    “Camelot needs you too, you idiot,” Arthur snaps. 

    “I’m just a—“
     
    “If you finish that sentence, gods help me—“ Arthur points a threatening finger. “I thought I had made it quite clear. How many times do I need to repeat it to get it through your thick skull?”

    “Never said it once, actually,” mutters Merlin, rather insolently. 

    “No, fairly sure I have,” Arthur insists. “If you weren’t listening, that’s your problem.”

     
    A Battle of Camlann AU where Arthur knows about Merlin’s magic, Merlin is Camelot’s Court Sorcerer, and neither one of them dies.

    Summary

    “So,” says Merlin, picking up a grape and putting it in his mouth, “do we know who Lot’s representative is yet?”
    Arthur rolls his eyes at his newly-promoted court sorcerer. “Get your feet off the desk, Merlin.” His friend scowls but does so. “And actually, we do. His reply arrived this morning. He’s sending Lord Meleagant, the Duke of Cameliard.”
    Merlin pauses, another grape halfway to his mouth. “Lord Meleagant?”
    “Yes, him and his son. I don’t know anything else, Lot was rather light on the details, but... Merlin, are you alright?” Merlin’s face has abruptly drained of colour and his hands are trembling slightly.

    Some old acquaintances of Merlin’s visit Camelot and his traumatic past comes to light.

    Summary

    Merlin watches Arthur leave. He has to forcibly remind himself about what he can and cannot have; who and what he is. Thrice damned. Blessed to be alive, in Camelot, and at Arthur’s side. He needs nothing more.

    For now, Merlin has paperwork to do and more magical artefacts to buy back from the citizens of Camelot. He takes a couple of moments to reconstruct himself, reaching for some ambient magic and using it to stabilise his tired body and revitalise his mind.

    He can’t fall over when there is more work to do. When he opens his eyes, Merlin straightens his itchy court outfit and sets off to be the best Court Sorcerer he can be.


    The sequel to Soldier, Peasant, King where Merlin, now serving as Camelot’s Court Sorcerer, must weigh his personal wish to accept the king’s mutually-desired advances to court him against his professional duty: to help bring about and sustain Camelot’s Golden Age as prophesied and witnessed in the Crystal of Neahtid. Of course, the very same Crystal paints a future for him and Arthur as a harbinger of heartache.

    Summary

    “Where do I sit?”

    Arthur doesn’t reply. Merlin looks away from the ceiling and back to where Arthur is lying next to him. Arthur, who is sound asleep, snoring, and paying no attention to Merlin's current emotional turmoil.

    Admittedly, this isn’t that surprising considering it’s one in the morning.

     

    -

    It's Merlin's first council meeting as Court Sorcerer and he's maybe, possibly, just a tiny bit nervous.

No one but him seems to think so, especially not Merlin, who thinks it's time Arthur learned a lesson in how to apologize.

    Summary

    There have always been secrets and lies wedging between the relationship that never quite went back to the ways it used to be. And When Arthur begins to notice the deliberate distance Merlin seems to be putting between them; he can't stand the reality of not knowing. Can't bring himself to believe that the man that held his heart in his hands resented him to such extents.

    And in the same library that criminalized the existence of the man he loved; they confront the truth. The truth which has power to write laws and thoughts anew.
