    Summary

    When Merlin was nine years old, King Uther made the order.

    Knights of Camelot arrived in the dead of night and burnt his village to the ground in the name of eradicating sorcery, leaving Merlin as the sole survivor of the massacre.

    Uther made a mistake in targeting Ealdor, and Merlin is hellbent on exacting revenge.

    He's trained for a decade, and he's finally ready to strike.

    Summary

    “So,” says Merlin, picking up a grape and putting it in his mouth, “do we know who Lot’s representative is yet?”
    Arthur rolls his eyes at his newly-promoted court sorcerer. “Get your feet off the desk, Merlin.” His friend scowls but does so. “And actually, we do. His reply arrived this morning. He’s sending Lord Meleagant, the Duke of Cameliard.”
    Merlin pauses, another grape halfway to his mouth. “Lord Meleagant?”
    “Yes, him and his son. I don’t know anything else, Lot was rather light on the details, but... Merlin, are you alright?” Merlin’s face has abruptly drained of colour and his hands are trembling slightly.

    Some old acquaintances of Merlin’s visit Camelot and his traumatic past comes to light.

    Summary

    Gwaine doesn’t remember the events of his past life till the day he meets Gwen again, then odd pictures, memories maybe, start flooding back.

    A modern Gwainevere Au where Gwen is brought into the ER, after an accident leaves her with severe memory loss, though she recognizes her doctor from somewhere in her distant past. While recovering, images start to seep back to her, images from a different time, she’s certain from a different world, and she’s certain that the person from her past has something to do with it, she just has to figure out how. Add in an immortal wizard and the once and future king, running on angst and coffee, and the plot thickens, like one of Merlin’s soups.

    Summary

    Morgana tries to rid herself of Emrys once and for all, her mode of operation? A substance made of the mushroom commonly known as Tippers Bane. Taken alone it is harmless, but taken within an alcoholic beverage, such as mead, it is deadly. With her victory over Emrys almost complete, Morgana thinks she will finally be rid of her mortal foe, but what happens if a supposedly unaware knight drinks the poisoned mead instead of Morgana’s intended target? And what happens when Merlin learns he was the intended mark, and that an innocent person took his place and may pay the price.

    Summary

    Merlin stood slowly. “Morgana, I only have to be what you make me.” The words tore at his throat, and Merlin’s eyes watered. “I don’t want to be your enemy, Morgana. Please don’t do this.”

    She was trembling, tears dripping from her face. 

    “No one else has to die.”

    Summary

    Merlin could barely think past his straining thoughts, conversations about magic always hurt, much less notice the unfriendly magic in the air. The ambient magic crawled under their skins, making each man pull closer to the fire. There were no stories to be shared tonight. Not tonight.

    But magic has never really had the same effect on Merlin as it does on most. Magic meant to smother and drain instead drained away the muddled clouds filling his mind. The magic smothered hesitation. This magic loosened Merlin’s tongue on a silent day.

    Merlin broke the unnatural quiet with a simple phrase that said far more than the stilted words. “He threatened to cut my tongue out.”

    -

    Selectively-Mute Merlin shares part of his past with the Knights of the Round Table. It does about as well as one might expect.
