    Summary

    Merlin always thought Arthur would emerge from the lake of Albion. He thought that once the day came for his King to rise again Merlin would feel it and come running back to Arthur. But what really happened was that Arthur was reborn and given a second life with no memories of Camelot.
    Merlin completely missed out on 22 years of Arthur's life before he realized he was alive. (How did he miss that?)
    Also, everybody else is back as well.

    Summary

    "I'm a sorceror. I have magic. And I use it for you, Arthur. Only for you."

    ~~~

    For 1500 years, Merlin has tried almost everything he could think of to get King Arthur to return. Every incantation, every spell, every ritual, during every possible phase of the moon. Eclipses, Meteor showers, he had tried them all. He sat by the lake of Avalon during every coronation, every anniversary, and still the waters remained silent. What if, for Arthur to return, Merlin needs to be the very thing he fought against all this time? What if he needs to be the reason Albion is at its time of greatest need?

    Summary

    An inconvenient love spell. A series of lies and threats. A charming villain winding its way into the heart of Camelot.
    Merlin has to face it.


    Merlin clutched the empty bucket. His fingers slipped along the inside. He wanted to share the truth with Arthur. He always did. Bare himself open. To all Arthur’s criticism and hatred in order to share all of what was inside. To show him his dedication and devotion and love, spell or not.
    That was a selfish desire.
    This too would be a battle for Merlin and Merlin alone.


    Completely alone.

    Summary

    Arthur groaned, "It's me, it really is." He spat blood, and maybe a tooth, out onto the grass. "Please, Merlin, you have to believe me." The pale face, sharp cheekbones, slender jaw, raven black hair, and above all, those bright blue eyes all told Arthur this was his friend, even though his actions and the way he spoke were as unfamiliar to Arthur as the rest of the world around him. He was back, he was alive, and Merlin was here, but everything was wrong.

    Summary

    Fifteen hundred years. I’m sure it’s been fifteen hundred years because I’ve felt every single moment of it. Every draw of breath, every step on the hard ground, every ounce of stark reality has been obvious to me. I’m not the same as I was. Time has a way of digging deep into your spirit and settling its claws there.

    And I will wait. I have no choice, but I keep telling myself that wouldn’t matter.

    It might not matter.

    Would he even know me? Behind this familiar face is a creature who has lived the lives of hundreds of tortured souls. Does it show? Could he see the desperation there? If I made him look, really look...

    If he were here, I like to think I could be who I once was. Could feel the release of the claws of time like a weight coming off my chest. I like to think that weight would be erased. That I would be whole again.

    Have I only changed for the interim? Could that shroud be lifted for good?

    Summary

    Royal!Merlin x OC

    Merlin "Emrys" Ambrosius is the son of King Balinor and Late Queen Hunith. They are many rumors about how Merlin has an unstable mind and a dark personality.

    Abigail Lillie Fernandez-Pendragon is the adopted daughter of Uther Pendragon, a step-sister of Arthur, a figurative sister to Morgana, friends, and beloved by the people but she is not from here.

    She came to Camelot when she was 14 years old, she was from the 21st Century. 2 months being Camelot, she became close with everyone.

    Uther had loved her so much that he had adopted her and made her a Pendragon a few days later. 3 years being a princess, Uther offered her hand to another kingdom, the kingdom to which everything is banned in Camelot.

    Etherelia, the land of Magic and other magical beings/creatures.

    Merlin and Abigail are both polar opposites.

    Abigail is beloved by her people, spreading the land of Camelot with love, kindness, and patience as well as beauty.

    Merlin is feared by his people.

    Will the two hit it off or will it end just as badly?

    Summary

    Only A fool would bargain the life of their first born son for power. No one can be that greedy right? Obviously Uther didn't get that memo when in a moment of weakness he makes an unbreakable vow to give up the life of his first born son, when his son reaches the age of 22, to a demon so he can become king. But what happens when said demon no longer wants to kill the crown prince but can't escape the vows, magic to save his life. Will Merlin find another way or will he be forced to complete the vow and kill his best friend?
