    Summary

    "What is it with you and wanting to sneak away in the night!" Arthur cried out.

    "It's effective," Merlin muttered petulantly. It had worked plenty of times and Arthur had never had an issue with it before. Granted, Arthur had never actually known that Merlin was doing it - but that was beside the point, since Merlin had still done it.

    (Or the one where Merlin finds it easy to get used to having the four knights know about his magic instead of just the one - and he, surprisingly, also finds it annoying.)

    Summary

    When Prince Merlin of Avalon visits Camelot, King Arthur is confident that everything will run smoothly. He does not expect to come face to face with a destiny that never was, or to find his most closely guarded secrets unravelling around him. Merlin disarms Arthur with his unexpected charm, lays bare his charade as easily as if Arthur's whole kingship were made of glass, and accompanies him on a journey which will change Camelot forever.

    Summary

    while the title makes it seem plotless i promise there's some plot in there

    ...

    While Gaius is busy with a small sickness in the lower town, Merlin is sent to go entertain Arthur. Arthur's idea of entertainment is forcing Merlin to learn how to use a sword during the knights' usual training session. The whole "Merlin using a sword" thing goes about as well as you would think, but with a little bit of an intervention from Gwaine and some (overused) hyphens and stuttering later, Merlin and Arthur discover something about each other.

    Summary

    There was touching Arthur, and there was touching Arthur, and rubbing ointment onto his naked chest definitely seemed like it ought to fall into the latter category. Merlin could handle the ordinary Arthur-touching parts of his daily routine just fine—he had to, in order to do his job—but somehow oiling Arthur’s goddamn nipples felt like it would be crossing a dangerous line.

    Or: In which Arthur has an inconvenient chafing problem, and Merlin ends up helping rather more enthusiastically than is strictly necessary, to the great enjoyment of everyone involved.

    Summary

    Merlin Emrys and Arthur Pendragon grew up together as inseparable childhood friends, but when they moved away for college that all changed.
    Arthur Pendragon became the smart, handsome popular kid; and Merlin was the gangly, clumsy art nerd.
    They ignored each other in public, but loved each other behind closed doors; and everything changed when Arthur invited Merlin to a fancy dress house-party for Halloween.

    Summary

    “Arthur, you know we can’t. That I can’t.” A sense of irritation was quickly starting to boil inside him, and Merlin had to very consciously try to not let the magic out. It was begging Merlin to let it free.

    He gritted his teeth.

    “Why not?” Arthur smirked and his eyes shone with mirth. Merlin wanted to punch him.

    Summary

    Arthur immediately notices two things.

    First, Merlin is visibly older. He’s grown into his body in the year that Arthur’s been gone, clumsy movements becoming surer and less awkward. His hair is a bit longer now, showing off his natural curls and framing his ears, which are now pierced with small purple plugs. His clothes no longer hang off of him like they used to and instead cling to him just right, showing off lean muscle where there used to be none, and Arthur realizes he’s staring but doesn’t make himself stop.

    Second, Merlin is hot. And exactly Arthur’s type.

    Summary

    “Are. You. Kidding me?” Merlin pushes and shoves until Arthur is back on his side and he can flop onto his back and throw an arm over his face. He can feel Arthur’s hand slinking across his belly, tapping that same dumb rhythm, slinking down, down, down. Merlin swallows, but he’s not yet ready to let go of his irritation. “We swore, no earlier than 8. Some of us need sleep if you want me to be holly and jolly.”

    Summary

    When Arthur finds out Merlin has magic, he doesn’t know what to do. He’s furious, of course, but it’s Merlin. Should he kill him, help him escape, or protect him as best he can from Uther? Some choices are no choice at all.

    Summary

    Blood trickled somewhere from his hairline down to his lips, and despite the aching desperate need for moisture in his mouth, he spit it somewhere behind him. Partly because the taste was so revolting that he couldn’t bear to keep it there, and partly because he hoped it’d leave enough of a trail for the knights to follow. For Arthur to follow.

    If they were looking for him.

    (OR, if Morgana kidnapped Merlin, not Gwen, and took him to the Dark Tower instead)

    Summary

    Arthur couldn’t kill Merlin.

    There wasn’t a single universe where he could bear to draw Merlin’s blood, to watch as life slowly left his pale, fragile body. Or maybe not so fragile after all — he’d survived as much as Arthur had and didn’t have the chainmail to thank for it. Just his own quick wits and tough skin.

    And, apparently, magic. 

     

    Or: it's a cold wintery night when Arthur discovers Merlin, his most trusted and beloved, using magic to light a fire. Now, he has to make a choice, although really, he's always known what it would be.
