    Summary

    Because if there are places where magic survives in the 21st century, one of those places is surely Oxford. Because the fellowship of Camelot deserved happier fates than the show gave them. Because it's hard for a king to save the world, and harder for a prophecy to be broken. And because, though there are many imaginings of what happened to Merlin, surviving into a new world, I wanted to write this one.

    This work is tagged for Arthurian mythology (and related fandoms) because, as some readers may notice, I've borrowed ideas from medieval literature and modern retellings, which will be acknowledged in the respective chapters.

    Weekly updates planned for Wednesdays; begun 10 June 2020.

    Summary

    Merlin reveals his magic in order to save Arthur, and the king kills him in a fit of rage. At first, he's too caught up in his anger to see the truth, but eventually he realizes just how big of a mistake he made.

     

    (This takes place sometime between seasons 4 and 5, so spoilers for up until then.)

    Summary

    "I'm not sure what I'd have done."
    "And I didn't want to put you in that position.”

    For better or for worse, Arthur knows Merlin's secret. The problem? Merlin doesn't know Arthur knows. This leaves Arthur with a predicament... and an opportunity. A test. Three trials and three opportunities for Merlin to prove he doesn't deserve death. Arthur hopes he will pass them. Maybe then the image of Merlin's golden eyes will stop haunting him.

    (AKA a really in-depth character study of Arthur's psyche but with a giant dose of angst and suspense because DRAMA. Also served with a side helping of Merlin character analysis and difficult moral calls. Lastly, this is really how I wanted Season 3 to go and was my prediction at the time. I stand by it).

    Summary

    After the death of the once and future king of Camelot, Guinevere Pendragon was stripped away of everything else as much as she was of Arthur. Two years passed before Arthur rose again, and Gwen (short for Guinevere) decided to write about everything that happened in the two years he was gone. She hopes he will read these one day, anticipating they will help him understand, for she and Arthur have not been reunited since. These are her many diary entries written to Arthur.

    Summary

    Remembering can be painful. New suits of armor and fine dresses don't always sit right against your skin. When the kingdom loses its King, sometimes it's hard to cast aside an old role and step into a new one.

    Leon knows this. He wonders if Guinevere knows it too.

    Summary

    “Your prowess at the healing arts is also so awe-inspiring,” Merlin said, “what do those smoked herbs do?”

    In the corner one of the druids started coughing.

    “Uhh,” the cloaked figure in front of him finished the bandage, “they, well…” 

    A druid from the corner chipped in, “Relax ya!”

    “Yeah, relax!” the other agreed quickly. “You gotta let you’re uh -muscles- rest sometimes.”

    They looked to the druids in the corner with a weird expression. Merlin supposed they were communicating with their minds.

    “So wise,” Merlin nodded sagely, “just like Gaius told me.”


    Or: What my mind comes up with at midnight after binging BBC Merlin and the only coherent thought I can have is, "They're All So Stupid." Everyone is both 100 times smarter and 100 time dumber than they are in canon. Basically a compilation of short, cracky scenarios set in different seasons of Merlin that are somehow completely unconnected, but all happening in the same universe.

    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

    Young children of Camelot are being snatched from the embrace of their parents, mothers and fathers sob into melancholy darkness of the night. Castle Guard witnesses proclaim a voracious army twinkling with sin arise from the Darkling Wood suddenly each night, just outside of Camelot's boarders, before relentlessly soaring among clouds and targeting the public below.

    Arthur Pendragon, his knights, and Merlin are to investigate these areas of magical woodland where the missing children are suspected to be kept for reasons unknown. Merlin has warned Arthur, repeatedly, of the danger that lies on sacred land such as The Darkling Wood, owned by a monarchy of Royal Fae. Of course, his anxieties fall upon deaf ears, mocked as another one of his 'funny feelings'. A blatant ignorance to the fact Merlin is never once wrong when it comes to his senses.

    That is how the Knights are ambushed.
    That is how Merlin becomes stranded, vulnerable, to the ancient forest Fae and into the uncharacteristically caring hands of an old enemy.

    Summary

    What if, instead of Merlin working as Arthur's manservant, Merlynn served as the physician's assistant?

    A young girl named Merlynn comes to Camelot to stay with her Great Uncle Gaius to both try to find a purpose for her magic and to learn the healing arts. But, when her world collides with Arthur's, could they eventually become something more?

     

    Just a story idea I had that would make sense for a canon era romance between these two lovely characters!

    Summary

    Merlin faces Morgana in the final battle. They're both mortally wounded, and ready to die - but upon his final moments, Merlin walks into the Spirit World, where he meets the imprisoned Avatar Spirit. Outside Albion, in lands where druids or the Old Religion never visited, there was the form of magic called bending. To save his own life and to preserve the future of his world, Merlin accepts the Spirit's offer, and his soul is reborn as the Avatar. Merlin returns to his body and starts to prepare for the looming threat of the mysterious Blind Witch, who is able to bend the very energy inside a human.
    In the wake of a cruel queen's initiative to begin the Second Purge, how will Arthur react, when Merlin returns, alive? Will he finally be able to accept his friend's true colours after he sees Merlin's memories and past from his perspective?
    And will Merlin be able to carry the responsibility of his new destiny as Avatar Emrys?

    Summary

    CEO Arthur Pendragon has been dreading the company ski trip for months. Now that he's here, it is decidedly worse than even he had imagined. His butt hurts, his wrist might be broken, and there's a full possibility that he will fire the entire Management Department (including Morgana, whose fingerprints are all over this) before he has to go through another one of these workplace bonding exercises.

    Fortunately for the poor Management saps that obey his sister like dogs, an encounter with a witty stranger turns his mood towards this trip for the better.

    Summary

    A soldier. That all he was a soldier. Or maybe there's something more to him than meets the eye. "He's not straining against his shackles," thought the captor. "Nor is he yelling anything. He just sits there, staring. The boss'll know what to do with him. After all, he killed the boss' son, Alexei. Boss'll make him pay." And with that, Cenred walked to the lion's den, so to speak.
