    Summary

    He looks at Merlin, expectant, but discovers Merlin still fully clothed, rifling through the wardrobe at the far end of their chambers.

    “Won’t you join me?”

    “No. I’m taking good care of you tonight.” On the surface, it is a promise of tender pampering, but that’s far from the truth. A shiver runs down his spine.

    Summary

    Arthur was born of magic. Scared and unsure of how to use his power and a father who hates all that is magic, will he and his new friend Merlin be able to learn and co-exist in a world that was made of magic?
    Who will magic call her own in the end?

    Excerpt:
    “Can magic corrupt a person?” Arthur hated how weak he sounded, but it is truly something he didn’t understand and he wanted to know the truth.
    “Is a sword evil or good?” Merlin countered the question slightly. He knows that Arthur needs to see that magic is neutral that it is the wielder who manipulates it.
    “Neither.” Arthur gave Merlin an unsure look.

    Summary

    Since Lancelot was accepted as a knight, Arthur has been sure Merlin will desert him to become Lancelot's manservant instead, and it doesn't help that Arthur is sure Merlin has feelings for Lancelot. Instead of talking about it, Arthur sulks so obviously that Merlin can't help but notice.

    Summary

    Merlin was in the living room sitting on the couch with his Kindle, when he jumped because of kitchen cabinets banging. Arthur came into the room muttering to himself about incompetent PAs, burned coffee and overtimes. He flung himself to the other side of the couch and stretched out with his feet firmly planted against Merlin’s hip. Like he always did, except… his shoulders were tense, there was a crease on his forehead and he was slightly clenching his jaw, just like he had been doing for the last week and a half.

    Summary

    “Let me paint your nails.”

    “What?” Arthur stared at him as if Merlin had suddenly growled at him in Greek.

    “It’s something my mum and I used to do, when we were really sad and needed a reminder that there’s always a bit of color in the world.”

    Arthur's hurting after his break up with Mithian, so Merlin decides to paint Arthur's nails to cheer him up. Then Arthur keeps painting his nails, and maybe there's more happening under the surface than Merlin realizes.

    Summary

    Everyone knows it’s a manservant’s duty to look after his master’s manhood. Everyone except Merlin that is. Which makes for a very awkward and embarrassing series of attempts, and an angry, sexually frustrated prince... Well, you know what they say, practice makes perfect!

    “I can’t do it! I can’t work for that arrogant prat! He is impossible! You won’t believe what he just asked me to do!” He shook his head fiercely, his cheeks heating up again.
    “What did he ask?” Gaius asked.
    Merlin made an embarrassed squeaky groan. He could feel his face burning. “He asked me to…” He stopped pacing and took a deep breath. “Rub his sword!”
    Gaius lifted one eyebrow, it arched perfectly over his right eye. “Yes, you have to look after his weapons-”
    “No, Gaius, not that sword, not the one he fights with…” Merlin put his hands in his hair, tugging it in frustration. “His… morning… glory…” He gestured at his own crotch.
    “Oh!” Gaius waved a hand in understanding. “Yes. Of course he did.”
    “What do you mean, of course he did?” Merlin’s voice sounded a little shrill now.
    “That’s one of a manservant’s duties,” Gaius explained.

    Summary

    Arranged marriages were usually quite the cold and formal affair. So, when Merlin Emrys had walked down the throne room towards him and Arthur had fallen in love on the spot, the Crown Prince of Camelot had felt… perplexed, to say the least.

    Summary

    “It’s so c-c-cold,” Gwaine said rather unnecessarily after a few moments, when the freezing wind snatched at his hair again. He shuffled closer to the fire. But the fire and blankets seemed to be doing little to warm him and Merlin chewed his lip anxiously. They needed to get his temperature up higher, faster.
    “Arthur, take your clothes off.”
    “I really don’t think this is the time, Merlin,” the prince answered exasperatedly, shaking his head.
    “Body heat,” Merlin explained, already standing up to shuck his cloak and jacket off. The wind whipped the jacket from his hand. “It’s the fastest way to warm him back up.”

    Summary

    The magic ban has been lifted a year ago, but Arthur still doesn't know about Merlin's magic.

    Or at least, that's what Merlin thinks.

    When a Ball is held at Camelot, a series of events make Merlin think that Arthur wants to marry Gwen, and in order to stop the pain, makes the decision to disguise himself as Emrys and attend it.

    But does Arthur really want to marry her?

    Summary

    Arthur figured maybe he did know, but the thought made him feel selfish, awful. 

    No, no, no. He was going to forget it.

    It couldn't be true, he and Merlin had made a deal: no more secrets. He had to trust that Merlin wasn’t breaking that promise.

    And yet the images of Merlin and Lancelot sharing secretive looks when they thought no one was looking, images of their hushed words and guilty glances, images of conversations abruptly ending when he walked towards them.

    Or:

    Merlin has been rather secretive recently, and Arthur is worried.

    Summary

    “Is it something we did? Something we said?”

    “Why would it be something any of you did?”

    “Do I really need to answer that?”

    “Yes, I think you do.”

    “Well because you’ve been ignoring us!” Merlin shouts before taking a deeper breath, calming himself. “Whenever you see any of us, you quickly turn away from us. You don’t want to talk to me about the negotiations with the druids anymore, you won’t sit down to talk to me about repealing the magic ban. You won’t talk to Gwen or any of the knights. I feel like there’s a part of you that’s shut us out and I have no idea why you’ve done that."

    Or:

    Arthur has been acting...strange recently, and Merlin wants to know why.

    Summary

    “You look at me with stars in your eyes, but I’m just me. Just a man. And an imperfect one at that. Please do not expect from me, what I cannot give.”

    “You don’t see what I see. If I could lend you my eyes I would, so you could see how much you truly shine. It’s in your imperfection, in your unsureness, that you rise above. You cannot reign over a kingdom without knowing your limitations. I might look at you with stars in my eyes, but you put them there.”

    or

    Arthur is king now and is wholly unprepared for it. Merlin’s confidence in him is baffling, and it hurts how he looks at Arthur with so much love and hope. Feeling inadequate in his own skin. Merlin does his best to make him see the truth.

    Summary

    His eyes darted around the room again, in horror, taking in the extent of the mess. That box—the television, Merlin called it—was broke, it was making a weird scratching sound and the screen was all fuzzy. Merlin’s favourite vase was shattered, and the…the phone, he thought it was called, was in the fish tank [Arthur still didn’t understand that]. It had made a loud noise while he was trying to examine it and he stumbled back, knocking over the vase, and launched the phone across the room on startled instinct.

    That wasn’t even broaching the topic of the kitchen…
