    Summary

    Arthur's family dinners aren't the typical “pass me the salt, please” kind of dinners, but as the son of Uther Pendragon, he would still attend if he wanted to inherit his father's wealth. The same applied for Arthur's half-sister, Morgana, his competition. Much can be known what kind of family theirs was simply by knowing this.

    Summary

    “Perhaps you are right. Perhaps keeping me here against my will and condemning my life to these walls is barbaric and cruel.” Merlin raised his eyebrows and with a few calculated steps, stopped right in front of the knight. “But tell me, Sir Gwaine. What if I deserve it? What if I am the animal everyone sees in me? What if the King is right to hold me captive?”

    Summary

    This is the final piece of the Merlin arc I am working on. I apologise in advance to readers looking for more smut. This is nothing like the others, this is how it ends.

    (no character deaths, good ending for Merlin and the knights)

    NB: unbeta'd fic, I'm looking for a good beta reader if anyone has a recommendation or wants to have a shot themselves.
    I will be editing this for the major errors shortly.

    Summary

    Arthur Pendragon loves sorcerers. He loves the way he makes them helpless, he loves the way he renders their magic useless. He loves the way he can take what he wants and then cast them aside.
    When he captures Merlin, however, he gets more than he was expecting.

    Summary

    The prophecies said that Albion would be united and that magic would return to the land. No one ever said how that would be achieved.

    ~

    In other words, the author saw a tumblr post about how dark merthur would be the ultimate power couple and could not rest until they'd written it.

    Summary

    He'd always been interested in anatomy. Merlin studied his work curiously as he exposed layer after layer with every slice of his knife. He took his time as he selected the meat he'd be using for Arthur's dinner. His king deserved only the very best, after all.

     

    In which Merlin is a bit more disturbed than you might remember him being in canon.
    A story full of murder, gore, and that weird feeling people have, called "love".

    Summary

    “I am not yours.” The words were slightly muffled. Merlin forced himself away. He angrily wiped the tears away from his eyes. This wasn’t fair. He didn’t want any of this.

    Summary

    He is no blacksmith’s son, but Arthur knows a sword is made through hardship. Fire melts, molds shape, hammers refine. There is violence in sword-making. It differs from the violence of training his knights, where the ache of bruises is soothed by friendly punches to the arm and drunken laughs in banquents. The flames do not warm metal when it melts, the molds do not laugh with it. The hammer does not simply bruise it. He imagines, now, that a sword is hardly different to himself. He looks at Excalibur in his hands. Light dances on the gilded blade and its engraved runes as he twists it. Beautiful. Born of strife.

    For Excalibur, it had been dragonfire. For Arthur, it had been his father’s blood coating his gloves.

    Summary

    There is a murmuring in the people of Camelot, and it eats away at Gwen's insides.

    She shivers in the whispering night breeze, the first signs of the coming fall. The hilt is damp with sweat in her shaking hand, but she holds firm.

    She won't need magic for this.

    STORY SET AFTER THE EVENTS OF 'SPLINTERED
    FLOWER
    “He was everything to me.” Merlin said quietly. “He was perfect, in every way. He was my world, the one person I cared about above all others. I loved him. I loved him and cared about him so deeply, and you took his life like it had no value. You talk about him like he was nobody. But he was my world. I’ll never forget what you did to him. I can never forgive you, Arthur. How could I? You took my world from me.”

    Summary

    "Subject 451," Arthur says, looking down at the clipboard in his hands and clicking his pen twice.

    "My name is Merlin!" the subject snarls, lunging upwards.

    Summary

    “You are a monster!”

    The words slipped out before she could stop them.

    Arthur’s eyes widened like she’d just slapped him. But Merlin’s words echoed in her head:  Gwen, he’s not a monster for not being able to handle my disability. 

    And she didn’t regret them. They weren’t nearly enough.
