    Summary

    Merlin is a universal constant, a thorn in Arthur's side, a barnacle that he's not sure he wants to get rid of. Then one morning, he's gone, and Arthur will do anything to find him.

    His quest is complicated by an orphan who has more to hide than Arthur does, a sorceror who insists of sitting in on council meetings despite being free to go, and the very real possibility of a secret shattering everything he knows.

    Summary

    He was content to sit back and smile as Arthur took the credit while his father played king. He was happy to clap alongside the rest of the court as the knights were bestowed honors and titles for his hard work. He could nod dutifully to men and women whom he could squash with a thought. He put up with the abuse from men of status who mistreated their power and sway.
    He knew what it was to be humble. He was content with staying out of the spotlight.
    But he was important.
    Wasn’t he?

    Summary

    At Gwaine’s concerned shout, Lancelot and the other two knights slowed down to glance towards their friend. “Merlin? Hey, what’s wrong? Did you hear something again?” Lancelot asked.

    Merlin nodded distracted, “I think I see something…”

    And suddenly an arrow pierced Merlin’s shoulder, sending the warlock sprawling off his horse and slamming hard into the ground. At the impact, all air was forced from his lungs leaving Merlin gasping and struggling to catch his breath through the white-hot waves of agony emitting from his injured shoulder. All he was aware of was several shouts coming from his friends around him and the pain.

     

    Or...
    While out on a hunting trip, Arthur, Merlin, and five knights (Lancelot, Gwaine, Leon, Percival, Elyan) get attacked by a group of bandits. Merlin gets injured and the boys take care of him. ((Main ‘brotherhood’ being Merlin, Arthur, Gwaine, and Lancelot))

    Summary

When Arthur finds his manservant on the floor in the middle of the hall one night, how will he react? I know it's been done, but I'm a sucker for protective!Arthur.

    Summary

    Gwaine had seen them from the very beginning. The first time he ever witnessed either of them was when they were together, in that tavern, bickering and joking. They had been together.
    Arthur and Merlin.
    He had watched them for years, together, as a team. Fighting monsters, defeating evil.
    And Gwaine watched now, as the king held his sorcerer, and he swallowed.
    Arthur rested his golden head against Merlin’s and wept.

    Summary

    "Loving Arthur was, without a doubt, the most painful thing Merlin had ever endured...

    As Merlin stood in front of an applauding crowd, wearing fine robes to match the new title of Court Sorcerer that Arthur had bestowed upon him with Queen Guinevere at his side, Merlin wondered why he was still alive. He had completed his destiny, hadn’t he? Now he had no purpose. For some reason, it seemed natural to Merlin that people died because they had finished what they were placed on this world to achieve. Why else would it be fair that all of Merlin’s loved ones had died saving other people, which they must have been destined to do?

    But Merlin was not dying. He felt in perfect health, and thanks to his protection spells surrounding the castle and the whole of Camelot, he would not be killed in some kind of attack. Merlin looked first at Arthur’s beaming face, then at Gwen’s, then turned to survey the room of happy people. He felt sick."

    With his destiny completed, countless loved ones dead, and his love for Arthur unrequited, Merlin finds himself lacking the will to live. Gwaine tries to give him a purpose again.
