    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

    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.

     

    [The mature rating is mostly for some more heavy handed crime scene and murder descriptions, as well as some focus on mental health. Don't worry though! We add warnings in the start-of-chapter notes, and mark parts to skip.

    It isn't nearly as serious as the tags suggest, we promise there’s loads of fun stuff in here too to balance out the angst (like ample sass and sarcasm; this is a Sherlock Merlin crossover, after all)]

    Summary

    Merlin answers his phone.

    “Anderson.”

    “Is that what you’re going by nowadays?”

    Merlin looks skyward and closes his eyes in a bid for the peace that eludes him so, huffing out a sigh.

    “Lizard man,” he greets. 

    “Hello, young warlock.”

    Merlin hums, scuffing his shoes against the dirt at the side of the ‘road’. 

    “’S’pose you want me to come home for Christmas?”

    “Would it be so terrible?”

    Merlin snorts. “Right, then, wha’d’you want?”

    “I’ve found your Destiny.”

    ----
    Merlin is immortal, even if his memory isn't. He gets flashes, brief impressions, but that's it. He knows Kilgarrah's been around the whole time, and every few decades or so he calls Merlin and tells him he's found his destiny. Merlin can never quite remember what it is, but he goes along, and this time that means partnering and protecting a prat of a detective from the supernatural threats that he doesn't realise he faces.

    Summary

    It's just a typical, everyday hunting trip in Camelot after the typical, everyday ambush of bandits when Merlin has what might just be the worst idea he's ever had. Or possibly the best, depending on how you look at it.

    Summary

    Arthur had always believed, the biggest change Camelot would ever go through, would be the day of his coronation.
    Truth is, it wasn't.
    The biggest change that Camelot ever underwent, came through a bumbling farmboy, who insulted the crown prince himself and somehow ended up stumbling into the hearts of the entire kingdom.

    -Set in season 1, open ended, because honestly, we could go on forever.
    - Based on a tumblr prompt.

    Summary

    "You're a selkie, how can you get seasick?"
    "I'm not used to travelling on boats!" Merlin protests, a sickly green pallor to his face. He leans over the side of the boat and throws up. "Sorry!"
    Arthur rubs his back, looking exasperated. Honestly. Of all the problems he'd anticipated on this diplomatic visit to Norway, a seasick selkie was not one of them.

    Summary

    One person can change everything. The stars may drive men's fates, but the stars never counted on a farm boy clawing his way back to life out of stubbornness and a wish to protect his oldest friend.

    He might not be part of some prophecy, but by god he'll turn it on it's head.

    "Bet you five silver coins you can't turn Arthur's clothes green without him knowing it's you before the banquet tonight."

    "Done."

    Summary

    After the death of his father, Arthur was crowned king and although Merlin was proud of his l-friend, he knew that it was only the beginning. Morgana was still out there, planning her next move to try to take back Camelot and Agravaine was still working as her spy and who knows how many other enemies that want to see Arthur dead.

    However, Merlin did not, but should have, expect to see a young queen occupied by her general wishing to speak with the now King Arthur. The two seem to hit it off very fast which made him suspicious about the whole ordeal.

    And it was not because he was jealous! Sod off Gwaine!

    Heaven help him if Arthur fell under another love spell again.

    Summary

    If Merlin is going to fight a dragon, there's no way he's going to do it without causing problems first. That's just who he is.

    (Follow up to my story [your feral vibes are kind of ruining the mood], so definitely read that one first.)

    One of these days I’m going to write a Merlin fic that I don’t have to tag with ‘crack’ (I said, you know, like a liar), but today is Not That Day.

    Summary

    Morgana is escalating her attempts to see herself on Camelot's throne. When her plan to have Gwen executed or have Arthur leave Camelot with Gwen fails, she decides to cut her losses and poison Arthur. Merlin saves him, of course, and reveals his magic in the process much to Arthur's annoyance. Once the dust has settled things seem to go back to normal, but on a hunting trip gone wrong Arthur's blade gleams with a silvery magic light as he kills the last bandit attacking them. The thing is, Arthur never had magic before Merlin healed him.

    Summary

    In one world, Merlin meets Arthur after telling off and insulting the arrogant prince in the castle courtyard. In this one, he meets him while living half-ferally in the woods after clubbing his knight (who, in his defense, he mistook for a bandit) upside the head.

    Huh, that's going to be hard to explain.
