    Summary

    When Arthur goes back for his manservant in the tunnels, he discovers the secrets Merlin has been hiding and makes an unforgivable mistake. With blood on his hands, and the whole kingdom unable to meet his eye, Arthur is pushed from Camelot. Forced to be alone with his thoughts and try to deal with the consequences of his actions.

    In one final attempt to make things right, he bargains with the sidhe. Trading his prophesied return for Merlin to live once more. The sidhe accept Arthur's offer, but there's one issue they don't mention to the disgraced king. Merlin never went to Avalon. In fact, he never left Camelot at all.

    Merlin may be back - albeit minus a handful of years worth of memories - but the people of Camelot still do not trust their king, and the enemies of Camelot draw closer by the day. Will Arthur be able to face Merlin and come clean? Will Merlin ever be able to work by Arthur's side again? Or will Camelot's enemies overthrow the weak king, and destroy the last chances of Albion ever being united?

    Summary

    He could still hear the way Merlin cried out as the blade pierced his skin when he took the hit meant for Arthur, even minutes later as he held the man in his arms, his heart somewhere between not beating and racing faster than a river in a storm.

    Arthur held the sorcerer close, his own breathing nearly as ragged as Merlin’s. There was so much blood.

    Merlin should never be covered in so much blood.

    OR

    Merlin takes a hit for Arthur in a battle with bandits, and the brush with death spurs Arthur into asking a question he, himself, hadn't even known he wanted to ask.

    Summary

    "He's just a servant."

    "He is mine!"

    "No." Uther took in Arthur’s unrepentant claim and stormy gaze, and a chill swept through him. "No, Arthur, tell me you didn't."

     

    Dragon blood ran through the Pendragon line. Not enough to taint them with the evil of magic, but to carry through and amplify draconic traits in their human nature that made them better, sharper. It also drove them to hoard one thing above all else. Uther had chosen well to hoard power, but Arthur -

    Arthur couldn't have chosen people as his hoard. He'd taught his son better than that.

    Summary

    Gwaine had gotten him a flower, which didn't sound like much, but when you added in that he'd snuck into the royal gardens to gather one for him, it made it much more sentimental. A kingdom's royal gardens are tenderly cared for, filled with the best flowers that only royalty received as compliments of beauty. 

    There was no doubt in Merlin's mind that Gwaine was entirely aware of all that.

    [Or]

    After being cared for by Merlin while he recovers, Gwaine finds himself with feelings for the servant and is making foreign romantic gestures to court him. He also finds himself extremely protective of Merlin when two knights suddenly take an uncomfortable interest in Merlin.

    [Set in s3e4 "Gwaine"]

    He took one last, longing look at the surface of the water, before shaking his head and turning away. He needed to stop. He needed to accept the truth of the matter.

    Arthur’s not coming back.

     


    OR

     

    Merlin's hope of Arthur's return is dwindling, after 1,500 years of nothing.

    Summary

    Merlin thought he was doing the right thing. He thought telling Arthur that magic had no place in Camelot he'd be able to save his friend. When he sees the mistake he made, he leaves Camelot. Unable to hand the burden of what he had condemned his friends to. Arthur, Gwen, Gaius, and the Knights of the Round Table seek out the Druids to find out everything they can about Merlin and his magic in hopes they can find their friend and bring him home.

    (Merlin left letters behind explaining why he had to leave. A majority of the story will be centered on everyone except Merlin as they learn about him and his sacrifices)

    Takes place after Season 5 episode 5, The Disir.

    Summary

    Arthur dies.

    Camelot burns.

    And yet, despite it all, Merlin survives.
    He persists, long after his friends have perished, experiences the rise and fall of empires, watches man walk on the moon- but Sherlock Holmes?

    Meeting him may cost Merlin everything (Including, predictably, his sanity).

    Or: Merlin decides to move to inner city 20th Century London to pull his life back together. Instead, he meets John Watson and Sherlock Holmes and- well let's just say his life gets a lot more interesting then he had planned on.

    Summary

    Merlin has a habit of keeping Arthur out of trouble, without the prince noticing of course. But when it's the warlock's turn to keep himself from harm's way he's not as on top of things as he'd like to believe, leaving the task up to those closest to him. A series of connected short stories featuring our favorites from Camelot and their mission to keep one selfless sorcerer safe.

    Summary

    The blonde visually struggles with an internal war, his palms torn from tight grips and puncturing nails. The circles surrounding his eyes are dark and pronounced. He looks nothing like the stubborn bastard Gwaine once knew. The one who grinned wildly, who walked around with his chest puffed and claimed no man was worth his tears. 

    The person before him is unrecognizable.

    Summary

    I’m here,” Arthur would say.

    What took you so long?” Merlin imagined himself replying.

    Of course, that’s not actually what he would say. Merlin wasn’t really sure what the hell he would say, but he knew it was better to think about it than the fact that his king wasn’t here with him now. Thinking about how he could be here. Can be. Will be. Not that, when it boils down to it, he just isn't.

    Because that’s what makes it so unbearable, isn’t it?

    Summary

    Normally he wouldn’t have minded the walk through the trees, through the lands, but today was different. The grass was browning, the flowers were wilting, the trees were dying, and Merlin felt himself growing more and more ill as time passed. The curse was growing, worsening, fast. With it, more of Camelot’s beautiful lands faded and died, and with them, Merlin grew worse and worse.

    He knew why. He wished he was wrong. He was connected to these lands, though, his life flowed through the earth they walked upon now, just as his magic did. So, as these lands wilted, as did he. Gods save their youngest…

     


    OR

     

    An angered sorceress has cursed Camelot.

    As the lands fall ill and begin to die, as does the god tied to protect them.

    Summary

    With every friendly touch (and lie) Merlin falls deeper in love (and despair) with Arthur, yet as always he is reminded why they can never be so every night he bleeds until he falls into a dreamless sleep; hoping for an ending with his Once and Future King.
