    Summary

    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I / I took the one less travelled by, / And that has made all the difference. ~ Robert Frost

    What is the truth of fate, of the destiny that shows providence to us in our lives and in ourselves?

    What good was it for Merlin to hear, always, from the Great Dragon Kilgharrah that he was destined to serve Arthur, Arthorius, Mac Aeden - Welsh or Scottish born, Romanised, Anglicized and creator of the glory days of Camelot - as Emrys, the master sorcerer who could never be known for his true power as long as magic was banned.

    Yet if Arthur was destined to die by the hand of a son of magic, in league with his half-sister and known by his dearest love, how could Merlin yet follow such a destiny? Why would he take the dragon's word rather than forging his own path?

    And what would happen if he had chosen a different way?

    Summary

    It wasn’t fair. Arthur was only supposed to be in Camelot for one week. A single week, while he solicited more grain for his starving village. That was it.

    Instead, he managed to somehow save the life of a prattish prince and was now bound by the king to serve him.

    And what was with the dragon in the dungeon, calling him the “Once and Future King?”

    Life, most definitely, wasn’t fair.

    Summary

    Merlin is part of a party sent to search out and kill magic users in the wood. Uther is really bad at making decisions, so he accidentally traps them all in the woods unless Merlin trades in a life to let them out.

    He trades his own life. It doesn't go as planned.

    Summary

    Merlin's been tipping sideways for a while now. This is how he finally falls.

     

    Or
    We saw in canon how Merlin changed through-out the seasons of the show from young, cheerful, pure and naïve boy to expressionless, morally dubious, borderline depressed man even when Arthur was alive and well. I just wrote this thinking what would happen if Arthur had lived but Merlin was still hidden.

    Summary

    "Arthur had to wonder, whether he should not feel something, anything at all, that would hint at him being controlled by Merlin. Even as he tried, he still felt nothing." Merlin is heard saying things that he shouldn't have said, and Uther is determined to do whatever it takes to free Arthur from the sorcerer's influence - which might be more difficult than expected.

    Summary

    Merlin is magic.

    Merlin was born with gold running through his veins, the energy of the earth thrumming through his fingers, sparks lingering just beneath his eyes. His mother used to shake her head when little Merlin ran down the paths, flicking up paths of leaves that would follow him gaily until they fluttered back down to the ground. That boy, she would think, destiny has big plans for that boy.

    Destiny did.

    Summary

    After fifteen hundred years, Merlin has almost too many memories to process. His mind is an ocean, and most of his tragically long life lies just beneath the surface- just out of his reach. But there are some things that are hard to forget.

    Yet another fix-it fic, going from Arthur's passing to modern day.

    Summary

    "The castle isn't going to grind to a halt just because Merlin's ill."

    Gwaine squinted suspiciously at the prince, who looked like he didn't really believe his own statement that much, and said, in almost prefect imitation of the missing manservant, "If you say so, Sire."

    Arthur glared.

    Summary

    Merlyn honestly thought that the reward for saving the son of the king would be a really bloody big bag of gold. Multiple really bloody big bags of gold, if she was lucky. Then she would bugger off somewhere, change what people called her to her real, actual name, and practise magic freely.

    And now she had somehow ended up as the servant of Arthur Pendragon. Oh yeah, and the voices in her head that gang up on her are usually her own, but when they're not, they belong to a dragon. An actual dragon, who's as mad as a spoon.

    She hadn't asked for this. Come to that, she hadn't asked to have the destiny of a great kingdom rest upon her shoulders. But hey, stuff happens, and she might as well enjoy the ride. (Anyway, there's Gwen, who's really very pretty.)

    I big brain and wanted to make a fem!merlin fic. Apologies in advance.
    ***
    Any plot that diverges from the original canon of the series Merlin (which, in my planning, is quite a bit) belongs to me, and is mine.
    Based off s.1 BBC Merlin
    I regretfully own nothing else.
