    Why did the overgrown lizard decided to threw all his endeavour out of the window?

    Or Kilgharrah is in shitty mood and making morally questionable (but to a certain extent justifiable) decisions. And he is an old man so he reminiscences - not much else to do when you are stuck in a cave...

    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

    “No man is worth your tears.”

    He wasn’t sure why he said it. He should have kept his big mouth shut, like he had been doing for years now. Maybe it was the overwhelming grief, or anger at the sheer insensitivity of the prince’s statement. Merlin remained where he was, facing away from Arthur, voice clear as he scoffed and replied.

    “Not even when the man you’re mourning turns out to be your missing father who nobody ever bothered to inform you about?"

    Summary

    After Balinor's sudden death at the hands of Cenred's men, Merlin is distraught. While he knows he must keep his emotions in check, the grief of losing his father begins to take a toll and soon even Arthur begins to notice. As the two make their journey back to Camelot, Arthur makes it his mission to figure out what it is bothering his poor servant.

    *Basically giving Merlin the comfort he deserves because he goes THROUGH IT in that episode and has to deal with the grief of it ALONE. Lots of Merlin angst, Arthur being protective, and some fluff as well.

    **this is my first fic!! If it gets any traction at all I will continue the story :)

    Summary

    Gaius hum noncommittally, “I think perhaps it’s time we had a proper discussion about your heritage.”

    He blinks. When Gaius spoke about his familial ties, he was either gleeful recalling his youth with his sister or remarking mysteriously about his nature as Emrys and his responsibility to the magical community.

    He tries for the first option, “Mum?”

    A shake of the head indicates no.

    “…the inherent cosmic-shattering nature of my general and unfortunate existence?”

    A scowl indicates annoyance.

    “What then?”

    The physician harrumphs and gives up on mixing things in vials, “Your father was a dragonlord.”

     

    Merlin and Balinor get to know each other for longer than an hour.

    Summary

    Arthur startles awake, but the pair in the middle of the clearing are too busy with each other to pay him any heed, which gives Arthur a chance to take in the strange situation unfolding before him.

    Promptly, Arthur decides he’s dead. He must be dead. There are no other rational explanations for what is happening. None. He’s got to be dead.

    Because Merlin is yelling at a bloody dragon.

    --- A rewrite of The Last Dragonlord, wherein Arthur knows about the magic, Merlin doesn't know that Arthur knows about the magic, and Arthur still just assumes Merlin is a crappy sorcerer even after he defeats the Great Dragon.

    Summary

    When Arthur spoke, his voice came right next to Merlin’s ear. “I… I can try something. I’ve seen the knights do it in the stables after nightfall. They look so much lighter afterwards. I’ve wanted to try it for some time now.”

    Merlin turned to look at Arthur. His eyes were dark in the candlelight and his mouth was open just slightly.

    Merlin’s breath hitched in his throat. The proximity to Arthur was doing something to him. His throat felt parched and his skin suddenly felt like on fire.

    “Oh?” Merlin said.

    Summary

    “What if he was my father?” Merlin asks, the words bursting out of him with the force of his grief. “Is he worth my tears then?!”

    If he wasn’t utterly at the end of his rope already, he would have found Arthur’s shocked expression amusing. Instead, it seemed to add insult to injury, and rather than backtracking, covering himself with a lie as usual, he continues.

    “Balinor was my father, Arthur,” he snaps, voice bitter and harsh in his own ears. “Yes, I admit it, I’m the son of a dragonlord.”

     

    What if Merlin snapped under the load of grief and told Arthur Balinor was his father?
