    Summary

    Merlin's jobs are as follows: Assistant physician, Prince's Manservant, and Secret Protector of the Once and Future King.
    A sudden influx of magical beasts from a nearby kingdom terrorising Camelot and flushing the Druids out of hiding forces him to take up another one: Emrys, King of the Druids. Of course, he's doing this anonymously, he's gonna need a disguise. No one can know it's Merlin kicking the shit out of stray Chimeras.
    Meanwhile, Arthur is terribly frustrated. His father won't let him out even as magical beasts are rampaging around the kingdom, and people are dying. Well, what Uther doesn't know won't hurt him. But he's gonna need a disguise. No one can know it's Arthur beating the brains out of random water spirits.
    And, sidenote: who's this Emrys guy?

    -----
    Merlin answers threats to Camelot and the Druids as Emrys. Arthur does the same in defiance of his father as The Red Knight. They're medieval superheroes.

    Summary

    Arthur meant to reach out to him, check him for injuries, but halted in his tracks when, for the first time, he noticed that it was a small girl that was cradled in Merlin’s arms.

    "Merlin, who is this?"

    Merlin’s grip around the child tightened, as though he feared she’d be taken from him. "She’s mine," he said hoarsely. "Her name is Aithusa."

    Summary

    Uther Pendragon’s hatred of magic is so out of the realm of reason that even Arthur can see it is bordering on the perverse. Ordered to hunt down and kill a band of renegade sorcerers, Arthur makes a fatal mistake that could cost Merlin his life. Will he be able to set aside a lifetime of his father’s indoctrination and accept magic in order to save his servant and friend? And what will the repercussions be if he does? How far is he willing to go to stop his father's reign of terror and to protect the people most important to him? When your destiny was written at the dawn of time can a single decision alter it forever?

    Summary

    “Merlin has magic…”

    Three words uttered by Uther Pendragon’s spirit sets off a chain of events that will dramatically alter the lives of not only Merlin and Arthur, but everyone around them. Before Arthur can fully come to terms with his friend’s betrayal Merlin is captured by a vengeful Morgana who knows he is Emrys. Fearing for his life, Arthur sets out on his own to find his friend and bring him home…hopefully before Morgana’s army attacks Camelot.

    Merlin finds himself far from home, without his magic, and at the mercy of Morgana. When all her efforts to break Merlin fail, Morgana wonders just what it will take to crush his spirit. A desperate attempt to do so has a startling effect, not just on Merlin, but on Morgana as well. It forces them both to face the past and the feelings they thought long buried. Merlin knows the only way out is through and if he can bring Morgana with him then just maybe they could alter the path fate had laid out for them.

    Summary

    No man, no matter how noble or common can know his destiny, but the people who walk with him along the journey are there for a purpose. They are there to guide, protect and love. No man stands alone in the quest for what is good and right.

    Losing Arthur leaves Merlin caught up in an endless cycle of guilt, grief, and sadness. When it becomes more than he can bear, he decides the time has come for him to leave the kingdom he has fought so hard for. No longer Arthur’s protector, he is adrift with no sense of purpose. Is he just the magic born to serve his king? Is he a servant? Is he Emrys, the greatest sorcerer to ever walk the earth? Is he the savior of the Druids? Is he truly the Last of the Dragonlords?

    It is that question that sends him on a journey to discover just who Balinor was and just what it means to be a Dragonlord. Are there others? Are there more dragons out there? He leaves behind everyone and everything he has ever loved and sets out to find answers. The journey leads him to surprising discoveries that bring him ever closer to the destiny he’d thought was lost forever.

    Summary

    Merlin's new Dragonlord powers come with some unforeseen side effects. When he's kidnapped by bandits, the new aspect of his powers makes itself known.

    But Merlin could've gotten himself out of the mess on his own, thank you very much, if only Arthur hadn't made it worse by rushing in and trying to save him.

    Summary

    In the shadows of the trees, the man’s eyes seemed to shimmer with a golden glow.

    “Identify yourself,” Arthur commanded, trying not to be unnerved by the man’s unnatural gaze. His hair was black and fell into those unearthly eyes in a disorderly tumble that looked somehow soft, and made Arthur suddenly curious if it was.

    The voice came again, once again magically projected into their ears instead of carrying naturally across the space. “My people refer to me as Emrys.”

    Summary

    Arthur, Merlin, and the Knights of the Round Table must travel to the Isle of Mona, invited by the eccentric royal family to help teach Arthur about governing a kingdom where magic is a free practice. As a condition of Morgana's surrender the ban was lifted in Camelot and Arthur asked Merlin to learn magic so he had someone he could trust to help him govern. Merlin has been playing the struggling apprentice for months, learning everything he can and pretending not to already know it all.
    However, when they land in Mona, all the magic users recognize Emrys and treat him as such. Merlin is forced to confess all to his king and the knights, who agree that until the treaty is signed and they return home, they are going to have to act as if this is all normal. Cue shenanigans, tournaments, worshipers, and more secrets than Arthur knows how to deal with.
    The story is a slow burn and a lot is going on, Merlin is polyamorous and Arthur decides he can live with that. This is my first long story, I will try to update often, let me know how I am doing!

    Summary

    When Gwaine inadvertently interrupts Merlin’s latest plan to save Camelot, Merlin has to improvise. It doesn’t turn out like he’d expected, but maybe that’s not entirely a bad thing.

    (Rated T for non-fatal injuries and because Gwaine likes ‘bloody’ as an adjective.)

    Summary

    Uther hears that Arthur is the Once and Future King foretold in a Druidic prophecy, destined to join Emrys in returning magic to Camelot. Uther declares Arthur a traitor, forcing him to flee Camelot with Merlin. The catch? Arthur has no idea who Emrys is, let alone any desire to fulfill the prophecy. Merlin is pretty sure this destiny business just got a whole lot more complicated…

    (Rated T for TWs listed in the tags; those TWs will be flagged in chapter notes when applicable. No slash, smut, or profanity.)

    Summary

    Merlin stands trial before the court of Queen Ygraine in a Camelot not his own. Under a truth spell he must speak no lies. But how can he tell them the truth when it's stranger than fiction.

    Summary

    He opens his eyes and looks down at the simple dark cover.

    There was little he’d been able to salvage from the time he had with his father, the most significant being the merlin pendant he’d gifted him in a moment of pure love that now hung solemnly around the prince’s neck. The charmed silver has survived the dragon flame, but the rest left to him had been tucked away in a pack meant for a few days travel. Small knives and supplies, a water canteen, and the few possessions the man had wanted to keep from his old life.

    Three books. Two letters. One ring.

    He sighs away his thoughts, touching the book named Heritage and running his finger under its cover as it creaks open in gentle groan of pleasure, flipping the first smooth page until he reaches the ornate scribbling of dark ink that stains the empty space.

    "The taming of dragons is not a safe practice for any man of unsure heart. Dragons are a wild and ancient race, and bonding settles a weight of time and trust onto the soul of a man that should be borne neither by the unprepared nor the unworthy..."

    Summary

    But not even Merlin, the greatest sorcerer to ever live, could tell exactly what fate had in store. No one had such a capability, not even seers.

    Merlin understood that better than anyone, and he would have done anything to divert his own path--anything at all--if it meant that Arthur would have looked at him one last time.

    ~*~

    Until I can write a proper summary, this is an AU in which:

    - Merlin is forced to leave Camelot
    - Merlin can shapeshift into a dragon
    - Merlin's destiny is to be the king of a magical kingdom
    - Arthur is a butthurt baby
    - Angst and Merthur ensue
    - Rated M for violence and eventual sexy times

    Summary

    There are magic reveals, A narrator whose only job seems to be sarcasm, and a plot that keeps Lance alive. That's what ya'll really want, right?

    Started out as a one shot but I couldn’t help myself… it turned into a fix-it.
    -—-

    Gwaine found himself in very unique situations whenever near to Merlin.

    (Yes. Seeing Merlin drag dead people into their graves is a unique situation.)

    -—-

    "Uh?" Lancelot said. He directed to continue.

    "This isn't.." Merlin gestured with a hand to the body on the floor. 

    He'd been dragging it. It was exactly what it looked like.

    -—-

    I am trying my best to stay on track with what actually happens in Merlin. However, there are *huge* empty spaces in-between seasons and episodes that I cannot, as a singular human, fill properly. Expect divergence from the canonical plot, including and not limited to Lancelot being alive (because I started writing without watching Merlin for a while and—hoo boy, the death of Lancelot is earlier than I thought).

    Thank you for listening in on my TED talk

    Summary

    Arthur might have been on the losing side of this war, might have been bartered away as a price for peace, but he wasn't willing to go down without a fight. While Camelot still stood and his father still sat the throne, there was no chance that he would surrender. If Emrys wanted a war-bride he had best be prepared for the fight Arthur would bring to the altar.
