    Summary

    “Merlin?” he could tell his tone of voice had surprised Merlin.

    Instead of turning around with an exasperated look or raised eyebrows, Merlin looked over his shoulder with wide eyes. Arthur took a deep breath. “Once you’ve told them to be quiet, will you come back here and spend the night with me?”

    Merlin smiled and he nodded. “Yeah.”

    Summary

    Arthur was knocked backward, head slamming against stone. He felt the air leave his chest, vision blurring. The courtyard floor seemed to hurt a lot more than he remembered.

    A man stood a few paces from him, golden eyes shining in the dark.

    Did he ever really know Merlin?

    Summary

    Cedric never stood a chance against Merlin and Arthur. Not when they are literally two sides of the same coin, bound by destiny, and especially not when they're secretly dating and trust each other with everything.

    Or—Cedric doesn't notice Merlin in Arthur's bed when he goes to steal Arthur's keys in the middle of the night, and that's his undoing.

    So no. He never stood a chance.

    Set in the episode 2x01 The Curse of Cornelius Sigan.

    Summary

    Merlin does not forgive Arthur at once for the whole Cedric affair, and Arthur has to deal with guilt, fixing his mistakes, asking for forgiveness and facing the possible losses and fallout of being, well, a clotpole.

    Summary

    6+1 alternative scenes in which Arthur is slightly less of a clotpole and Merlin's efforts are if not valued, at least recognised, and he isn't treated as badly. Or, how the episode should have gone, in my opinion.

    Summary

    There are tears in Merlin’s eyes, you’re sure, because there’s tears in his voice. You’re not going to think about what that means, not yet. Not now, when he’s both a sorcerer and a friend who might die for you and you’re — you’re simply lying there, faking unconsciousness like a coward to be able to listen to every word of this exchange.

    Arthur overhears Merlin and Cornelius Sigan’s conversation.

    Summary

    Cornelius Sigan rotted in his tomb. But beneath the castle, forgotten by time was his triumph; a new body, immortal and undying, waiting in the dark.
    Eager to destroy the Pendragons, Nimueh resurrects the shell Sigan created--an automaton with innate magic--to be her assassin.
    There's just one problem: Merlin's got a will of his own.

    Summary

    Uther was dead.

    News of the king's death rang through the entire kingdom, alighting fear in the hearts of some and relief in others. But it wasn't only the death of the king that spread rumors of the new ruler who would preside over Camelot, word had it that the king had been killed in cold blood. The new ruler's men had done it without any remorse, fueled with thoughts of magic returning to the kingdom in full force. After that day, an ominous presence stood over Camelot and would not recede, for even if the sun shined high, the citadel loomed over the citizens with its menacing aura.

    AKA, Merlin takes the crown.

    Summary

    Cornelius Sigan possesses Cedric's body and attempts to destroy Camelot. Merlin's not about to let that happen, even if it means risking his own life in the process. Arthur, however, manages to witness this.

     

    So this is basically a divergent ending to the episode, because I was Not A Happy Camper and was frankly disgusted with the way Arthur treated Merlin. And I love a bit of spite (that inevitably comes back to haunt you) so I just changed it up a bit. You know. Made Arthur regret everything he's ever done. The usual.

    Alternate summary that I included purely for the bants:

    When Cornelius Sigan takes up residence in the body of Cedric (Arthur's not-so-hot new manservant), Merlin is (once again) the only one who can save Camelot. He has to get over his (well-justified if you ask him, petty if you ask Gaius) grudge against the dragon and actually protect this goddamn unprotectable city. All whilst Arthur takes a little nap (knocked out from battle wounds, but. you know. same thing.)
    But this time Arthur's awake enough to see just how he does it.

    This is actually a really serious and dramatic piece of work. Like no comedy in it at all. Sorry if the summary is a bit misleading.

    Summary

    This is a story about a prince, who finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. And then, before he knows it, there's an ancient sorcerer's soul inside his own body, controlling him and doing things that he would never do. Not to his people, to his city... not to Merlin. But it seems that the sorcerer, Cornelius Sigan, has other plans. Exposing Arthur's feelings to Merlin to get him out of the way, is just one of them. And all this time, Arthur is trapped inside, screaming for someone to hear him. But no one does. Not even Merlin.
