    Summary

    “Atlantis has always had a King,” said Merlin, a worried frown settled on his features. Arthur longed to kiss his worries away, were it not for the impossible task still ahead. “Now, it needs something more.”

    The Trident’s recovery a constant weight on his shoulders, Arthur returned the intense gaze of his gorgeous companion. “What could be greater than a King?”

    “A Hero.”

    ---

    Arthur is a half-human, half-atlantean warrior, popularly known as the Aquaman. Following his world saving feat with his fellow League heroes, he does his best to use his natural abilities for the good of humankind. Enter captivating, fierce Merlin, a Prince of the Seas, who insists on Arthur’s help to stop his power hungry half-brother King Mordred from forcefully uniting the oceanic people to conquer the surface world.

    The Kingdom of Atlantis needs its one true heir to take the throne, but can Arthur set aside his anger at the people who murdered his Queen Mother for bearing a half-breed? Amid Primordial Creatures, Legendary Weapons and Powerful Sea Sorcerers, Arthur must stop a great war and save everyone, while enduring Merlin’s irresistible self.

    Easier said than done.

    Summary

    This is never going to happen,” Arthur said, when he and Merlin first met. He coiled the soul-thread tight around his fingers and pulled, so that their bond dug sharply into Merlin’s flesh. “I don’t want it, I’m not interested, and if you mention it to anyone my father will have you arrested. Do you understand?"

    Summary

    It’s not the first time he has felt like this, the self-destructive urge to blurt out his secret just to see what the prince will do with it, but it’s the first time he’s wanted to linger over the telling, to press his traitor’s mouth against Arthur’s skin and beg for absolution. 

    After the events of Le Morte d'Arthur, Merlin tends to the injured prince and reflects on the nature of their relationship.

    Summary

    Merlin's life is not a very happy one.

    Sometimes he can forget that fact through the acts of sex, or the amazing substances of the night. His favorite way to forget however is through the care of his friends. Still, they are nothing but temporary distractions. At the end of the day, in small moments of silence, his mind always goes back to the now fallen king. The man he is always waiting for.

    Until he no longer has to.

    Now that Arthur is back, it is up to Merlin to guide his best friend as he comes to terms with the sad fact of change.

    Along with the bittersweet taste of similarity.

    Summary

    Merlin used to like the idea of finding The One – until he fell in love with Arthur Pendragon. Now he has a boss he can't date (but can't stop thinking about), a soulmate he can't find (who has terrible taste in music), and a best friend who can't believe he still hasn't got his act together (even though it's seriously not his fault).

    Sometimes, life is unfairly complicated, even without your soulmate singing painfully catchy tunes in the back of your head.

    Summary

    Uther was having a nice day, until some idiot sorcerer ruined it.

    Oh, I see where you're confused. No, he doesn't mean the sorcerer who stormed into the throne room and broke his favourite window. He means his son's idiot manservant who's making it really hard for Uther to feign ignorance regarding the fact that the boy obviously has magic.

    Uther's POV of Deliberate Disregard
