    Summary

    Merlin's expectation in life was to be invisible and protect Arthur (and one day become the greatest warlock in the world and help bring about a magical era of peace, but that was irrelevant)

    But all of that changed when the Queen of the prophesized Albion comes to Camelot and reveals that Merlin is the prince of their small but magically adept country. He is pulled into court politics, etiquette lessons, and a long series of revelations about how much control he truly holds over his own future.

    Now, Merlin must find the balance between his duty, his destiny, and his heart.

    Summary

    Inspired by A Warlock's Wish by vividpast but with substantial changes.

    Merlin steps though the veil instead of Lancelot, but he doesn't die. No, he just finds himself transported to a Camelot where Ygraine is queen, Uther is dead, and magic is legal and celebrated. Merlin just wants to find a way back to his own world, Balinor just wants to forget the past, Arthur just wants to marry for love, and Hunith? Hunith knows that Emrys shouldn't exist in this world, so when she catches wind that he is around, she seeks to kill him. Why must trouble always find him?

    -

    Camelot’s town had not changed. It was the very same layout, the very same buildings in the very same places. Everything was the very same. 

    Except for the magic.

    Summary

    It seems that in every battle, Merlin resorts to dropping tree branches on the heads of his and Arthur's enemies. But surely there are several problems with this as a battle tactic...?

    In which tree-branch-dropping goes very wrong, and Merlin learns to branch out.

    (Also fair warning this contains a plethora of truly awful puns so continue at your own risk.)

    Summary

    “So,” says Merlin, picking up a grape and putting it in his mouth, “do we know who Lot’s representative is yet?”
    Arthur rolls his eyes at his newly-promoted court sorcerer. “Get your feet off the desk, Merlin.” His friend scowls but does so. “And actually, we do. His reply arrived this morning. He’s sending Lord Meleagant, the Duke of Cameliard.”
    Merlin pauses, another grape halfway to his mouth. “Lord Meleagant?”
    “Yes, him and his son. I don’t know anything else, Lot was rather light on the details, but... Merlin, are you alright?” Merlin’s face has abruptly drained of colour and his hands are trembling slightly.

    Some old acquaintances of Merlin’s visit Camelot and his traumatic past comes to light.

    Summary

    Dr. Emily Cannon wants nothing more than to help the young man she finds before her. Found on the riverbank in London, after an apparent suicide attempt, he was a lost soul. His eyes bore the weight of a thousand lifetimes, his heart closed off to everyone. With no memory of what happened to him, he was a riddle, a mystery. Then one day he mentions someone from his past and she sees a spark of life in him. Whoever this person was, he was important to him. Little did she know, that person was Arthur Pendragon, the King of Camelot, and the young man she had been trying to help was none other than the legendary Merlin. Determined to help reunite Merlin with his king, Emily soon finds herself caught up in a surreal world of magic and resurrection, destiny and prophecy, love and hate.

    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

    It makes him breathless sometimes, sitting in the silver moonlight, head in his hands, knees on the floor. The taste of dust in his mouth and the tight strain of his lungs against his ribcage. It’s a silent torment, one that Merlin sweeps under the rug for the morning so that he can serve Arthur, at least for as long as he can.

    Summary

    Bandits, again. This time, they force some revelations.

    -

    As he had grown, practised more, aged a few years (and gained the wisdom that came with them), it had stopped being enough. It had begun to spill out of him, leak, like he was a cracked vessel glued shoddily together. He’d conjure his dreams while he slept - Gaius had seen him, projecting images in shadows and light of what he dreamt, and had warned him to be careful - but how could Merlin control what he did when he was asleep? He’d found once or twice, when he let his mind wander too far in the boredom that overtook it while performing some of the more dull tasks for Arthur, that his magic would simply come out and complete the task for him: times when he’d drift while polishing armour in the armoury and suddenly he’d find himself with a pile of shining plate and two hours to spare before he had to return to either Gaius or Arthur. Sometimes, he even found that he’d perform magic on accident in front of the King, or the knights. It was instinctual. It was certainly accidental. And it was becoming more and more dangerous. He was struggling to keep his cracks from breaking further, struggling to keep the liquid magic in his veins spilling forth.

    To foe of His- I’m deadly foe-
    None stir the second time-
    On whom I lay a Yellow Eye
    Or an emphatic Thumb-

    Summary

    “Arthur.”

    “Merlin?” he said, instantly angry. He shoved himself into a sitting position, fumbling for the candle on the table by the bed, and blustered, “What on earth are you doing? It’s the middle of the night! I don’t know about you, but that’s when I sleep. Don’t you--”

    Finally managing to get the candle lit, he looked up at Merlin, fully prepared to continue his lecture. But the words died in his throat at the sight of the young servant, and he choked in the rush of panic that assaulted him. “Merlin!”

    Summary

    Arthur was born of magic. Scared and unsure of how to use his power and a father who hates all that is magic, will he and his new friend Merlin be able to learn and co-exist in a world that was made of magic?
    Who will magic call her own in the end?

    Excerpt:
    “Can magic corrupt a person?” Arthur hated how weak he sounded, but it is truly something he didn’t understand and he wanted to know the truth.
    “Is a sword evil or good?” Merlin countered the question slightly. He knows that Arthur needs to see that magic is neutral that it is the wielder who manipulates it.
    “Neither.” Arthur gave Merlin an unsure look.

    Summary

    After Prince Arthur Pendragon tells his father about his interest in men, tensions arise within the castle of Camelot. Meanwhile, with the neighboring country threatening to break out in complete chaos, Crown Prince Merlin of Ealdor has to protect his people and thus avoid the conflict at all costs. His solution? A fake relationship with Camelot's prince, bribing Uther to accept his son through the promise to end their alliance in case he doesn't.

    Things are happening a bit too fast for Arthur's taste (or his brain), but he actually doesn't mind being supported for once. He could do without the romantic shenanigans though.
