    Summary

    "He thought loving Merlin was one of those things he’d never have to talk about. It was a certainty, as sure as the sun rises in east and sets in the west. It was as sure as the waves always leave only to come back to reach the shore. He loved him, and he would never have him. Things would be too complicated.

    He wished he could define it as something other than longing. But that’s what it was, and he couldn’t stop it, no matter how hard his mind strived to be free."

    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 a 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

    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

    Excerpt: "“Don’t be ridiculous. I could’ve killed you. It’s the least I can do. Please,” he added as an afterthought, his eyes begging Merlin. A small crowd had gathered and people were starting to murmur. The last thing Arthur needed was the press declaring that Uther Pendragon’s son had tried to kill a sorcerer with his car. But most important of all, Arthur couldn’t let him go. Even after all those years, he still couldn’t let him go."

    Summary: It's been almost ten years since Arthur shattered Merlin's heart. He's regretted it everyday since. But with Merlin's career as Nimueh's future successor and Arthur's marriage to Elena, he'd given up hope that there could ever be anything between them again. By chance, he hits Merlin with his car. Is this the second chance he'd given up on? Or is this going to end up in flames? (Spolier: it does get a little flame-y towards the end, but you'll see. Heh heh.)

    Note: I have written the entire story which is currently at 9 chapters and a 30k words. I would never trust myself to post something unfinished lol.

    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

    Wishes are words of power.
    A Dying man's wish cannot be ignored even by the Goddess of the old Religion.

    When Arthur Pendragon let out his last breath on the way to the Lake of Avalon, all he wished was to be for his best friend, his brother, so he didn't have to bear the weight of the world alone.

    But he was one dying man, what could he do to change the world?

    "Wishes are words of power, Once and Future King"
    "The Old Religion cannot ignore the plea of a dying man pure of heart"
    "Yet alone that of a man tethered to the destiny of the Land of Albion"
    "A man willing to change for the good for the sake of his friend"
    "A man wishing to make things right"

    Summary

    When the royals of the Eastern Isles visit Camelot to celebrate 10 years of alliance, it doesn’t go as planned. That’s pretty much it.

    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 had always thought of Harry as two people. Intellectually speaking, he understood that these sides of Harry were one in the same, but he had never fully been able to reconcile the two.

    That is, until about a month after the final battle.

    Summary

    What if Merlin gave different advice and in turn Arthur made a different choice in S5E5: The Disir. Magic would have become accepted in Camelot early in season 5 and changed the entire course of the show.
