    Summary

    -Shwellenangst-
    -Noun, German-
    The fear of crossing a threshold to embark on something new.

    -----
    The raven’s cheeky smile had shifted into that of something twisted and angry. The servant stepped forth and rose his hand without thinking, and as Arthur turned, he saw the twelfth and final bandit go flying back, the vivid crack of his skull against the stone he’d been thrown against ringing in his ear.

    The blond turned back to see Merlin’s eyes fade from molten gold back to their azure blue. Merlin looked at him with pained regret on his face as he lowered his hand and took a step back.

    “I’m sorry.” The raven whispered, panic overtaking his face.

    -----

    **Takes place before the season 3 finale, but Uther is dead, the knights are all here etc. Cuz I said so.

    Summary

    Merlin splutters awake when the water hits him. It takes him a moment to get his bearings but then he remembers and uncurls himself, stretching out his wings. They were once iridescent, like a raven's, but they're turning dull from lack of proper nourishment.
    "What, no— no punches?"

    In a world where magical people are barely seen as human, Merlin's been captured by a circus. It's time to get him out.

    Summary

    “Aithusa, you need to get off me,” I laughed softly as the tiny white dragon tickled the back of my neck, her claws luckily didn’t hurt, they just tickled. A growling chirp was her reply as she grabbed a mouthful of my hair. She tugged playfully at my long locks and yelped as I pulled her off me and cradled her in my arms. 

    “You spoil her,” A smile spread across my face as I look up at my mother. 

    “Well she is mine after all,” I chuckled softly as I gently tossed the baby dragon onto my bed.

    Summary

    "...I am run through and through with disaster; I am knifed to the hilt with fate."
    Hannah Kent, from ‘Burial Rites’

    “What if all I ever had to was ask?” It always comes back to this question, to how much Arthur has always been willing to sacrifice for her, and how willingly blind she’s let herself be because of the furious need to hurt Uther clinging to her every step. 

    “Or he might have killed you,” Morgause says slowly, searching her face for something. “He isn’t what you want to believe.” 

    She knows this, she does, and yet still…

    Summary

    The dragon leaned forward. "Your destiny is to protect Uther Pendragon's heir, the one who will be the Once and Future King and unite all of Albion."

    Merlin blinked. "But . . . Uther doesn't have an heir."

    . . .

    In many Arthurian texts, Arthur is raised as a peasant by Sir Ector with no knowledge of his royal lineage. Let's bring that back, shall we?

    Summary

    Merlin defeated the creature easily. He turned away from his fallen foe and back to the boulder blockade he'd trapped Arthur behind. Too late, Merlin saw the King had found his own way out. He had seen... everything.

    Arthur didn't look angry. He didn't even seem surprised. Just... hurt. Merlin froze when he saw that Arthur was crying. The King hadn't seemed to notice it yet, his eyes lost and face void of emotion, but tear tracks lined his dust coated cheeks. Arthur didn't cry. It was a rule he rarely disobeyed, his motto, "No man is worth your tears." It took Merlin a second to understand, but he wasn't angry... he was heartbroken.

    Arthur discovers Merlin's magic. Realising that nearly everyone close to him has betrayed him, Arthur blames himself and obsesses over being the perfect King. He finally taps into his potential, follows his beliefs, and becomes the man that he was meant to be. Arthur also discovers he's not what he thought he was and begins keeping secrets of his own. Meanwhile, Merlin repents for his mistakes and learns about Arthur's past. What is Arthur hiding? Can Merlin win back Arthur's trust? Who and what is Arthur Pendragon, really?

    Summary

    “Well, I was thinking -”, Arthur began, but Merlin interrupted him. As always.
    “YOU- thinking? Now I'm getting worried.”
    “My plans are always well thought through. Just so you know.”
    “I think we both know who of us does the thinking and what happens, when you leave me out of your plans.”

     

    Alternatively:
    Arthur makes a plan to get Percival and Gwaine together. His plan involved a fake relationship with none other than Merlin Emrys himself. His best friend.
    And crush, obviously. Yes, Arthur's plans are very well thought through.... as one can imagine

    Summary

    Bereft of the emotions that should have come at the implications of the sentence, Uther's tone is stoic as if his own son is a common prisoner. “You are to leave Camelot by nightfall. If we find you have returned to the grounds of this kingdom we will have no choice but to carry out your original sentence in the highest order.”

    Exiled and disinherited? Brilliant.


    An AU where Uther, under the influence of Troll!Catrina and Goblin!Gaius legitimately disinherits Arthur and he must deal with the consequences thereof in an attempt to reclaim Camelot.

    Summary

    “Merlin has magic…”

    Three words uttered by Uther Pendragon’s spirit sets off a chain of events that will dramatically alter the lives of not only Merlin and Arthur, but everyone around them. Before Arthur can fully come to terms with his friend’s betrayal Merlin is captured by a vengeful Morgana who knows he is Emrys. Fearing for his life, Arthur sets out on his own to find his friend and bring him home…hopefully before Morgana’s army attacks Camelot.

    Merlin finds himself far from home, without his magic, and at the mercy of Morgana. When all her efforts to break Merlin fail, Morgana wonders just what it will take to crush his spirit. A desperate attempt to do so has a startling effect, not just on Merlin, but on Morgana as well. It forces them both to face the past and the feelings they thought long buried. Merlin knows the only way out is through and if he can bring Morgana with him then just maybe they could alter the path fate had laid out for them.

    Summary

    If there is something bigger than Uther’s hatred for magic, Gaius had said, is his greed for power.

    Uther finds out he has a figure of legend (well, two figures of legend) living under his roof, and he decides to take advantage of it. In the meanwhile, Arthur and Merlin have to deal with some revelations, and Morgana reconsiders her loyalties.

    Summary

    According to canon, Merlin is basically a demigod who has access to his powers since birth. He's also smart, resourceful, brave and determined. His control over time and his telekinesis should also trivialize just about every threat possible. Yet for all that, he has zero development until he comes to Camelot desperate for whatever life would give him.

    In this fic, all of that changes. Merlin fully embraced his power, which impacted both his life and his surroundings.

    So when he comes to Camelot Merlin still needs to figure out himself and his purpose like in canon, but he is in a totally different place both magically and mentally. Will that change everything? Or nothing?

    Summary

    "No!"

    Arthur's blade sliced through the air as every person raging towards them was thrown back against the tunnel walls. All of them laid flaccid on the floor like discarded play dolls.

    He froze for a second before he realized what had actually happened. His sword clanged to the floor as he turned around to face Mordred. Who was worse off than him, with nothing but panic in his eyes and struggling to calm his breathing.

    Or

    Sent to scout and collect firewood Mordred and Arthur get themselves stuck in a sticky situation. Featuring Arthur and Merlin arguing like an old married couple, patching things up and a magical mishap. (Anything can be how you interpret it as far as relationships and ships, romantic pre-slash, polyamorous, platonic Etc)

    Summary

    When Merlin barges into the council chamber to declare himself a sorcerer and save Gwen from execution, no one believes him. So he does magic, obviously. Now, he needs to fulfill his gods-be-damned destiny while roughing it in the woods. But first, he needs to figure out what's poisoning the water.

    What follows is a mess of treason, underground sorcerer societies in the heart of Camelot, DIY home construction, faeries, talking Griphons, and all the joy I think the characters deserved just for existing. And some angst. Just a little bit.

    Splits from season 1 episode 3 of the series ("The Mark of Nimweh")

    Summary

    In another life, Arthur might’ve hesitated. In another life, the fear—actual, real fear—in the eyes of the man who he has once considered his father might’ve stalled his hand. But where his mother’s pleas to not let this knowledge change him might’ve made him hesitate, the sheer betrayal burning in Merlin’s eyes after Arthur was forced to reveal his secrets wrenches any hesitation right out of him.


    After Arthur found out about Merlin's magic, things are still tense between them. It's the worst possible time for the Witchfinder to arrive at court, but for all his worries, Arthur still could've never foreseen just how horribly it would go. He could've never foreseen all the things it would set in motion, and while there's the silver lining of how it brings him and Morgana closer, the chances of ever overcoming his guilt, of ever salvaging his and Merlin's relationship, seem almost non-existent. Almost.
