    Summary

    Merlin flees his hometown for the big city and crashes with Gwen, his friend from university. As he settles in, he meets Gwen's new girlfriend Morgana, gets on the wrong foot with Morgana's ass of a brother, and finally tries to become a functioning adult.

    Only, the bad dreams he's been having are getting worse, and the voice he keeps hearing in his head keeps getting louder...

    Summary

    Will had told Madoc not to mess with that crumbling magic book. Madoc had turned his DEFCON-one-grade pleading eyes on Will, though, and Will, predictably, had caved immediately.

    Now, of course, they were apparently stuck in Ancient Wales. Fantastic. Will kind of liked that he could throw his phone out with impunity, but Madoc's grumbling wasn't very pleasant, especially considering it was Madoc's fault they were here in the first place, like.

    Will could also definitely do without the Arthur-lookalike ranting about how magic was evil and corrupted the soul and all. This Arthur was definitely more annoying than the one Will knew, that much was certain.

    Summary

    “To my shame, I must admit that I have made a small -”, Uther took a deep breath. “-miscalculation.”
    ......
    “My lord, are you suggesting that I impersonate your son?”

     

    -----

    Or:

    Of course, the king of Meredia didn't just come for a round of tea. No.... It is his goal to get the mighty Emrys out of the way to finally get rid of Arthur.
    There are two things he didn't calculate, however: 'Arthur's manservant' isn't Emrys.
    And Arthur is much harder to kill than he expected.
    That might have to do with the fact that Arthur isn't actually Arthur.

    That aside... the Castle faces bigger problems. Because no matter how much Leon needs George as his pretend manservant....
    The staff needs George even more. And no, they do NOT care that someone is trying to kill Leon.... again.

    Well I suppose Merlin's and Arthur's past lives also play a role in this. But you gotta have to figue that out by reading ;))) (Merthur)

    Summary

    Arthur is the reigning king of Camelot. He spends his mornings training new knights, his afternoons in council, his nights with Merlin, and by all accounts, he should be serenely happy. It's only when his nights grow restless that shadows begin to lengthen in the crevices of his life. Merlin's nightmares jerk them both awake in the hours before dawn, and Merlin's face grows taut and strained with secrets as the days pass by. Arthur tries fruitlessly to get the truth out of him, only to be met with hostility and anger, and turns to frustration himself. It's in the intimate silence of night when Merlin at last tells him the truth, and in the aftermath, Arthur is left to realize that there is no such thing as being unnatural, only what he has seen of human nature, and what he hasn't.

    Summary

    “Well, what do you know, it’s Merlin Emrys, attorney at why in the world bother?”
    “See you tomorrow!” Merlin cheerfully called after Arthur.
    “No, I won’t, because you’re fired!”
    “You can’t fire your own business partner.”

     

    OR

    Arthur doesn't care about the Devil of Camelot, magic, or vigilantes.
    He just wants Merlin to show up for work.

    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. Note as of 20 August: this fic was planned to be finished by the end of the summer; it will not be. It has grown in the telling, and while it is plotted and sketched out to its end, the regularity of updates is very likely to suffer as the academic year begins. Subscriptions recommended to interested parties.

    Summary

    Hi, friends! While I work on new content I thought I’d share this script I wrote for a creative writing class back in high school. I got a B- because I didn’t bother with perfect script format and got slightly carried away, but I’m sure you can forgive me for that. This hypothetical episode takes place after Sword in The Stone Pt 2, albeit in a slightly altered timeline. It can either be considered an immediate continuation from Agravaine's death scene or a new first episode of the fifth season. The major changes from canon are as follows:

    Arthur and Gwen’s relationship, canonically put on hold during season four by Agravaine being a dick, is still on hold during this time.

    Isolde is alive.

    Morgana never turned evil, and her magic is known to the audience but not to any other characters.

    The main villain of season 4 was Morgause, who worked with Agravaine. She was killed prior to Agravaine’s death in the previous episode.

    Everyone is just a tiny bit gayer.

    I’ll share it in parts to keep things interesting (and hopefully give myself time to edit it so that it is beyond a B- work.) I hope you enjoy!

    Summary

    WARNING: This story contains a failed-Assassin-cum-technical-Sourcerer, a werewolf, the boy who everyone thinks is the werewolf, a very tired Captain of the Watch, one of the most terrifying Student Assassins (Ever) and her best friend, the son of the de-facto king (who has a god complex—the son, not… well, both of them, actually), three vigilante swordsmen who aren’t as subtle as they think they are, a very angry witch who’s gone down the path of gingerbread cottages, a murder plot and a rebellion, Lady Luck, and, umm, Mordred.

    Summary

    It was a sword stuck in an anvil, and the little plaque beside it read, in neat brass letters: Whoso pulleth this sword from the anvil shall be declared rightwise king of all England.

    “Well that’s a bit rubbish, isn’t it?” said Arthur.

    In which Morgana and Merlin team up, Arthur fights with his dad, and Guinevere has tea with a dragon.

    Summary

    Morgana crept through the hallway towards the door of Arthur’s Chambers. She was so close she could taste it. She tried to open the door but of course it was locked. She looked around before discretely whispering ‘Tospringe’ to break the lock. She edged into Arthur’s room, readying herself for the best moment of her life. Revenge. What she didn’t expect to see was Arthur in a deep sleep. (Ok, that made sense as it was God knows what time in the morning. It was the other major sight that shocked her.) Arthur wasn’t alone.

    Morgana comes back for revenge but it just turns into one big emotional pillow fight - Literally :)

    Summary

    “Sometimes I dream of leaving Camelot.”

    “Really?” Gwen questioned with a frown etched upon her face. “Where would you go?”

    Gwen watched as Arthur took a second to think, “I don’t know.” He responded, with a solemn expression. “Somewhere where nobody knew who I was. I’d get some land and become a farmer.”

    “I can hardly see you toiling away in the field all day,” Gwen said with a chuckle.

    “Obviously, I’d take Merlin along with me; he can do all the hard work,” Arthur said with a small grin. Because, obviously.

    or

    After a helpful chat with Gwen, Arthur decides to reveal his relationship with Merlin to his father. It doesn't go the way he wanted he wanted it to.

    Summary

    Everyone he trusted with his secret – Will, Freya, Balinor, Lancelot, and now Gaius – was gone. Arthur would never bring magic back to the land, and he would never let Merlin stand at his side the way Merlin had hoped he would. It was a cold awakening, years of baseless faith dashed against the fraying tapestry that destiny had made Merlin sew into his own skin, but an awakening nonetheless.

    Merlin is shaken out of his obsession with destiny and his blind faith in Arthur. Arthur just wishes he knew how to get his closest friend back.

    (For Merthur Angst Week 2021 Day 7: “No. You don’t get to talk.”)

    Summary

    “I’ll go make breakfast and leave you two to continue your erm,” He clears his throat. “Provocative activities,” They hear the sounds of his footsteps receding as he walks away.

    Arthur’s cheeks flush in embarrassment as he lifts his head. “I swear I’m moving out and getting far away from him.”

    where merlin is (inadvertently) a cock blocker, arthur is annoyed and gwen finds humor in the situation.

    Summary

    When Arthur goes missing, Merlin goes off on his own searching for him. He knows to look for things that the others simply do not and has things at his disposal that the others, again, simply do not.

    . . .Magical things, of course.

    In all his power, worry, anger, and relentless searching, he has no idea the missing king is being shown all the things that Merlin is doing with that power.

    . . .Magical things, of course.

    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!)

    Dating the love of your life is all well and good, unless you don't get the best friend stamp of approval.

    Not that Merlin has any reason to worry.
