    Summary

    Uther’s day had started out relatively normally. But, of course, as it so happens at least once a week, something had to go awry; something that, more often than not, was related to magic.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    It's really just that Uther and at least half of Camelot know that Merlin has magic, but Arthur is an oblivious prat and Merlin is an oblivious idiot.

    Summary

    If there's one thing Arthur knows, it's that anything to do with his former manservant is never easy.

    Summary

    'None shall be harmed. There has been enough.'

    This time, Hunith watches everyone’s faces. Clearly they hear it- feel it- too. 

    'Each person in this room has played a part in my child’s destiny. It is time you understand.'

    “Understand what…?”, Percival asks quietly.

    “Your child?”, Arthur echoes, much more forceful.

    Hunith’s face whips to Merlin. His brows are drawn together, his eyes so distant, on something unfathomable. This is the part of her son Hunith can’t reach. This is beyond her. 

    As much as it pains her, Magic was his mother first.

     
    'Relearn the past. It will become clear.'

    ------------------------
    Magic decides its child has been alone long enough. It brings those relevant to the crystal cave to share some of its memories pertaining to its child. Merlin and his friends watch him arrive in Camelot from a fresh set of eyes.

    Summary

    Merlin's jobs are as follows: Assistant physician, Prince's Manservant, and Secret Protector of the Once and Future King.
    A sudden influx of magical beasts from a nearby kingdom terrorising Camelot and flushing the Druids out of hiding forces him to take up another one: Emrys, King of the Druids. Of course, he's doing this anonymously, he's gonna need a disguise. No one can know it's Merlin kicking the shit out of stray Chimeras.
    Meanwhile, Arthur is terribly frustrated. His father won't let him out even as magical beasts are rampaging around the kingdom, and people are dying. Well, what Uther doesn't know won't hurt him. But he's gonna need a disguise. No one can know it's Arthur beating the brains out of random water spirits.
    And, sidenote: who's this Emrys guy?

    -----
    Merlin answers threats to Camelot and the Druids as Emrys. Arthur does the same in defiance of his father as The Red Knight. They're medieval superheroes.

    Summary

    Arthur was used to being trotted out by Uther as Camelot’s shiny, young ambassador. Though he didn’t care much for Cenred, he certainly wasn’t afraid of him. No, it wasn’t Essetir that bred knots in his stomach.

    For reasons that Arthur did not yet understand, it was the humble village of Ealdor that loomed specterlike over the journey ahead.

    When a diplomatic visit to Cenred's kingdom takes Arthur and Merlin through Ealdor, Arthur must confront a secret he has kept from himself since Merlin arrived in Camelot.

    Summary

    When his younger brother, Mordred, finds himself in serious trouble, Merlin can't just sit back and let his life fall apart. So, out of options, he turns to the one person who could possibly help him—the enormously wealthy business owner Arthur Pendragon.

    Arthur agrees to help, after some consideration—but of course, everything comes at a price, and for Merlin, it happens to be his hand in marriage.

    It's a matter of convenience, of course. Arthur needs a fake spouse to get his father and the public off his back about finding a bride, and Merlin needs the money. It's purely convenience.

    At least, that's what Merlin thinks...

    Summary

    That strange light in Hani's Bethel does more than just shine down on Arthur, and he takes away more than just a few trinkets. There are some things that cannot be explained, certain events that cannot be controlled, but life must continue on and time stops for no man.

    A reimagining of that strange little UFO encounter in the game.

    Summary

    Merlin always thought he’d tell Arthur about his crush and magic in a whirlwind of fighting together against a powerful enemy, a dramatic haze of flowing pendragon red cloaks, clashing swords and the smell of a storm in the air as he called down lightning from the skies to smite all those who dared hurt his friends. Alas it didn’t happen like that.

    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

    Arthur y Merlín tienen una relación especial. Siempre lo han tenido, aun cuando no eran más que príncipe y sirviente. Si bien muchos tuvieron dudas cuando lo notaron por primera vez, eventualmente se volvió un entendimiento común en todo Camelot -e incluso entre algunos otros países- que, donde estaba Arthur, estaba Merlín. Y, donde estaba Merlín, estaba Arthur.

    O, la relación de Arthur y Merlín según lo presenciado y explicado por otros.

    También conocido como:
    Cinco veces que alguien notó que Merlín es la reina, una vez que Merlín lo nota y una vez que lo usa.

    Summary

    Merlin gets kidnapped by an unknown person and when he returns, he's different. Gaius finds out what causes it. The Fomorroh. Arthur and Merlin go on a quest to kill the mother beast while it's tranquilized, so they can protect Camelot from Morgause and Cenred.

    Gwen and Morgana are also a big part of the story and I write in their perspective too.

    Summary

    After Arthur tells Merlin that he's planning to ask for Gwen's hand in marriage, Merlin... kinda falls apart. The stress of hiding his magic, hiding his identity as Emrys, dealing with the duties of a servant and a physician's apprentice, as well as struggling under thee weight of his failures (Morgana, Mordred, Kilgharrah, Arthur, there's so much) has gotten to him. So Merlin decides to leave Camelot for a bit, to either put himself back together or find himself.
    Enter Gwaine.
    The dashing knight who has been loyal towards Merlin and the Crown (but mostly Merlin), sees an opportunity to find his way into Merlin's heart where Arthur is making an opening. Merlin's just happy to have a friend to talk to, even if he's still keeping secrets.
    Lucky for both of them, their journey out of Camelot and throughout Albion provides them the chance to understand each other and their roles in fate's play. And when their bond is put to the test, the best of fate's results becomes reality.

    Summary

    “I am… sorry, Merlin. This was not written in the Prophecy, it should not have happened.”

    “What? You, smoking me half to death, like a freshly caught salmon?”

    “Yes, that… Amongst other things.”

     

    -in which the S01E3 "Le morte Artur", ends quite differently and yet exactly the same.

    Summary

    Merlin has fallen, literally, and everyone feels it. Especially Arthur. One day, our beloved king goes to sleep and wakes up in a bed that is Arthur's, but not quite his. There he finds many things and realises many more.

     

    Ok I'm not kidding this was a literal dream I had that I thought was story-worthy so I just had to get it down. Also I cannot write and this is my first time writing on Ao3 so it's gonna be funky, sorry. Another quick note, if you like this I apologise in advance cos I do not have an update schedule for shit so it's gonna be slow going.

    There may be another book depending on if I feel like I can add more, this may become a series.

    Summary

    “Arthur, you have like five fan clubs. You were named sexiest man alive two years in a row. You are an action film star, who also does romcoms. You were John Constantine in that Justice League film, a part if you remember, that was supposed to be a minor role but you were so brilliant, they made a spin-off movie about you! You’re one of the hottest names in the industry, of course, they are going to make a big deal about this.”

    “So, you think I’m hot?” Arthur teased with a smirk.

    Merlin groaned and pushed him away. “You are literally the worst.”

    Summary

    When Merlin and Arthur were young, they secretly eloped and then, naively, adopted a child, Mordred, that they had found stranded on the streets.

    A year later, when things start not to work out, Arthur and Merlin decide to divorce, and Arthur gets full custody of Mordred. Merlin moves to New York to pursue college and Arthur takes a job in his father's business for a steady income.

    Seven years later, and Merlin decides to come back to be a part of Mordred's life. He quickly finds, however, that they have become different people than they were seven years ago. But maybe, through Merlin's growing connection to Mordred, he can finally start to close the gap that separated him and Arthur for so long. And possibly, rekindle their old love that they once had.

    Summary

    Since Arthur was a boy he has known that he is to marry for Camelot rather than for himself, so he never stops to consider his own feelings, or just who he might actually wish to marry — had he had a choice in the matter. He hopes that he will come to love his future wife, but does not expect or need it. After all, he has no knowledge of what love really feels like. Well, until Merlin shows up.

    And who knows, maybe Arthur does have a choice.

    Summary

    “I have my doubts,” Arthur went on, “but I trust Gaius’ judgment. I’m leaving in the morning with my men. If you want, you may accompany us, but with or without you, we’re going to retake Camelot from that dragon.”
    All eyes in the room were focused on him.
    The chances of the quest turning from "kill a dragon" into "kill Merlin" were higher than flood waters in the rainy season.
    He stood.
    “Well, count me out.”

     

    OR

    Five years ago, the Great Dragon burned Camelot. Now, Arthur is determined to reclaim his homeland and his rightful throne.

    Merlin is not.
