    Summary

    Arthur makes the biggest mistake of his career. Not trusting Merlin. Going to such extremes as to punish his very being. Fortunately, he realises his mistake, unfortunately he's too late. So, in true Pendragon fashion, he fixes it. By which, he makes it worse.

    Can be read as slash... I mean some would say it's a queerbaity as the show.

    Summary

    A fast ship, a good crew, a treasure, a Clan to lead -- that's all Arthur Pendragon has ever wanted. He sits on the Council, he supports his father's kingship, and he keeps an eye on the Imperial Conglomerate when they come too close to Pirate space.

    One day the Conglomerate infiltrates the Clans and poisons the King. Arthur must search for a cure to keep his father alive and the Clans from civil war.

    An escape route, a sharp knife, a target, the shadows at his command -- that's all Merlin has ever needed. He fulfills his assignments, he uses the Sterling to sustain his once-royal House in their exile, and wages a private war against the Imperial Conglomerate.

    When he learns of an elaborate plot to assassinate him, Merlin does the opposite of what's expected. He flees onto a Pirate ship.

    There's a saying among the Pirates: that one's fate is written in the stars. Destiny will always set to rights what has been made wrong.

    Arthur and Merlin know that they were meant for the other from the moment they meet. They can feel it from across the galaxies separating them. Nothing can stop them from being together or from fulfilling an ancient prophecy.

    Summary

    I had a sudden burst of writing motivation so I wrote this. I will try to write more one shots, when I can't work on longer pieces.
    This one is based off that feeling of deep peace, like you're floating, when you feel safe and in the right place.

    Summary

    Merlin spent the week and a half that Arthur was gone splitting his time between crafting careful explanations that never ended up explaining the important things, the things that would make Arthur listen, and making half-baked plans to escape to Ealdor. He found a number of fire-proofing spells that would have no effect if they decided to cut his head off, and figured out how to adapt an invulnerability spell he had been trying to find a way to cast on Arthur without him noticing so that it would protect him from being decapitated, but it would have no effect on anything but metal. Despite all his frantic searching, he did not find a teleportation spell, because that would have been too simple and if there was one thing Merlin had learned in his years at Camelot, it was that nothing was ever simple.

    Summary

    They were only setting up camp, or better, he was. Alone. Because apparently knights of Camelot were too above crouching down to set a handful of bedrolls on the uneven, humid, cold ground.

    Honestly, Merlin wasn't sure why he even bothered anymore. Maybe old habits die hard. The King sure didn't seem excited about it. Not that anything Merlin did recently got him excited anymore.

    "Merlin, tone it down." Arthur said, exasperation clear in his voice.

    "Tone what down, sire?" 

    "Your…" Arthur gesticulated aggressively with his hands, "magic."

    Summary

    "Do you think you can spend an evening without insulting Merlin?”

    Arthur looks as if the very idea is anathema to him. “It’s not insults,” he says. “It’s—”

    “Your very own idea of courtship,” Gwen says. “But I’ve another idea. And it involves being very, very nice to Merlin. Didn’t you see the way he was flustering just now? He’s used to your barbed comments, Arthur, he has practically grown up with them. Didn’t you like the sight of him, all flushed from praise?”

    “I’m not—” Arthur says, and abruptly cuts himself off as his own face goes pink. “I suppose so.”

    “Here’s what we do,” Gwen starts.

    Or: Gwen and Arthur set out to court a reluctant Merlin. Fortunately, Gwen knows exactly how Merlin wants to be loved.

    Summary

    It is days like today when Merlin realizes how very grateful he is to be best friends and flatmates with the very wealthy and very generous Arthur Pendragon, even if it makes him feel literally insane most of the time. Even if the writer’s block is sort of Arthur’s fault in the first place because Merlin finds it increasingly demotivating and depressing to try to write emotionally satisfying gay romance novels when he suffers the misfortune of living in a rather emotionally unsatisfying one, with endlessly building tension and no fucking climax.

     

    Or, Merlin is a romance writer secretly and pitifully in love with his best friend and flatmate Arthur. To unstick his writers block he decides to date Gwaine and Elyan, a poly couple. Turns out nothing unsticks except Arthur's sanity.

    Summary

    Gossip was a regular part of castle life, Merlin a regular target of it. Arthur was used to disregarding the ridiculous things people said about his servant, until the day he overheard a rumor he couldn't ignore, one that involved a secret lover, midnight forays into the forest, and seventy-five pounds of ham.

      WP: Merlin's POV, When he questions the knights, Gwaine is incredibly indignant he hasn’t looked into it before. Lancelot looks horribly shifty and guilty, and Arthur shoves him and starts shouting in his face because he clearly knows something. When he (carefully) asks Merlin about it later, though, Merlin swears that Lancelot would never and has never hurt him. Arthur’s still unsure until Merlin swears on his mother’s life, and that convinces him, leaving him with both relief that it’s not Lancelot, and renewed desperation to figure out who it is.

    Summary

    "I don't want to leave him. He thinks. I can't.

    It shouldn't be the first thing he thinks of. He should be thinking of his mother, Gaius, Gwen. He should be thinking of how Kilgharrah had said he was an immortal, but Kilgharrah is also a big lying liar who lies, so he shouldn't have believed him. But he doesn't think of any of those things, after ten years of sacrificing, his brain is wired to think of Arthur, only of him."

     

    In which Merlin is accidentally stabbed instead of Arthur. Oops.

    Summary

    Arthur’s heart sank when Gwaine pulled back and pressed his lips firmly to Leon’s in a quick kiss, which Leon reciprocated before stepping back and sitting down once more. He couldn’t believe it. He couldn’t believe it.

    Gwaine was cheating on Merlin!

    Or

    On his way home, Arthur sees Gwaine out with another man. Thinking Merlin and Gwaine were in a relationship, he's horrified to find out Gwaine is cheating on his best friend.

    Now, he's only left with one question. How does he tell Merlin?

    Summary

    “I’m sorry, there must be a mistake.” Uther furrows his brows. “That is my son’s manservant.”

    “This is Emrys, the most powerful sorcerer who will ever walk the earth. It is our deepest honor to be able to offer his hand to your son.”

    “Merlin?” Arthur asks, looking across the hall. Merlin looks the palest and the smallest Arthur has ever seen him. He looks like a scared animal that knows it’s about to be trapped, and that’s when it clicks for Arthur that no part of this is a joke. None of it. “Merlin, what are they talking about?”
