    Summary

    Merlin slowly blinked the sleep out of his eyes, trying to remember why he felt such an intense urgency to get up. The sheets on the suspiciously soft bed were warm and inviting, and not conducive to getting up early. Somehow he managed to rouse himself and came upon the distressing realization that he did not know where he was.

    [Merlin wakes up in a bed that he does not remember next to a man he is positive he’s never seen before in his life. Our favorite sorcerer is shocked (and incredulous) when he finds out that no, he did not accidentally sleep walk into the palace, and yes, he does actually know these people even if he has no recollection of them. Surprisingly enough he’s managed to forget almost the last decade of his life.]

    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…

    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

    Very often and sometimes a bit too many times for his taste, Gwaine found himself in very unique situations when near to Merlin.

    The smell of blood and dirt smothered his senses, and Gwaine couldn't get up the energy to remove himself from this situation.

    At the moment, it seemed quite a bit unusual to watch that very manservant drag dead bodies into a hole so casually.
    Gwaine drinks and Merlin assassinated people. No biggie.

     

    (I feel like this is on crack, but at the same time I'm trying so desperately to keep the "plot" on track. Takes place in the year between S3 and S4 and will continue into S4 whenever I feel like I can write a plot)

    Summary

    Kilgarrah has been cryptic at best and infuriating at worst. Merlin's not sure what he expected, but surely the great lizard could've given him a heads up that he'd start growing SCALES.
    That's not the least of it, and he can't exactly ask for a work leave to get his brand new claws in order. What's he gonna tell Arthur? And is it going to be even a little bit believable?

    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

    In the year 2082, thirty Sorcerers who called themselves “The Pure” took over England in a violent coup, established a magical supremacy, and ruled until Uther Pendragon and his underground forces defeated them. Uther became dictator, taking charge of the country in its State of Emergency. All sorcerers tied to The Pure were publicly executed. Sorcery was declared illegal. Uther's peacekeeping Patronus force crushes rebellions. All who are suspected of practicing magic disappear or are executed. England grows increasingly restless under Uther Pendragon. Laws on sorcery have begun to change in other countries, and civil unrest stirs again in England herself.

    In this changing political landscape, Uther Pendragon’s son Arthur finds himself at University, caught between his father’s expectations and his own growing unease about his father’s policies and persecution of magic. His friend and classmate from childhood, Merlin Astur, has kept his secret as long as he's been alive. In the face of a changing world, threats to his closest friends, and an ancient Druid legend, he struggles to keep his magic hidden while protecting those dear to him.

    Summary

    Morgana returns to Camelot after a year as a changed woman. Merlin is consumed with guilt at the mere mention of her, so seeing Morgana in person feeds his self-hatred to no end. With destructive behavior comes sloppiness. And with sloppiness comes mistakes. And with mistakes come executions.

    Morgana's return is the catalyst that begins the crucible of the greatest warlock to ever walk the earth. And Merlin's crucible is the catalyst for the return of magic.

    Summary

    [One hunting trip. That’s all Arthur wanted. One trip that didn’t involve dangerous magical creatures or bandits or other non-traditional hindrances. For once he would like for his biggest problems to be a damp sleeping bag.
    But no, it could never be that easy. Arthur’s camp was long forgotten as he dangled from the claws of the dragon. He’d woken up to see a dark figure standing over him and the next thing he knew he was dangling hundreds of meters in the air with a pounding headache.]
    Or, Merlin is a dragonlord, the son of the dragonlord Balinor who rules over the dragons in the North. Arthur is the prince Merlin is instructed to kidnap. Balinor is the exasperated father and general who just wanted to legalize magic but accidentally set his son up with the child and heir of his greatest enemy.
    Whoops.

    Summary

    At this point, Arthur has just accepted that his best friend Merlin was definitely not normal, possibly not fully human, and maybe some sort of half-dryad or nature spirit with a particular affinity for magical creatures.

    And then he realises that maybe he's not normal either, and things start getting complicated.

    aka

    Arthur makes more discoveries about his friend, and ends up making some about himself, too.

    Summary

    When all the death eaters broke out of Azkaban, they woke a certain prisoner who has been in there for a very long time. Practically as long as the prison has been built, maybe even longer. Was he put there because he committed some atrocious crime? No, nothing so dark and dreary.

    Immortality to some seems like a blessing; some people strive for it, kill for it even. But some see it as a curse of an endless life. Some people wish they were just normal human beings. Living a 100-year lifespan. Maybe even the wizarding 200-year lifespan but no more. One man wishes for death. But could never grasp it. Until he meets the master of it. Or at least the soon to be master.

    Coming into a new world with Dark Lords and young children fighting in a war, they need not fight. An old sorcerer joins the battle.
