    Summary

    Uther Pendragon had only two rules for his children, and he expected them to be followed:

    1. Finish your royal tasks before you engage in other activities.
    2. Your other activities must never, ever involve Faeries.

    So it didn’t exactly go over well when Arthur went and got married to one.

    Summary

    Durante años (más de los naturales, definitivamente), un petirrojo se acercaba a conversar con Merlin. Tenía muchas historias interesantes para contarle, pero siempre había alguien que nunca faltaba en sus charlas; Arthur Pendragon.
    Merlin se moría por conocer a ese futuro rey que lo cambiaría todo.

    Summary

    (Yes, I changed my username. It’s still me!)

    Essentially a combination rewrite and sequel to my earlier work, Siren Song!

    Merlin and Arthur set out on a voyage to hunt down a siren that has been terrorizing a neighboring kingdom. They discover that they are the only ones unaffected by the siren’s song, causing a medley of chaos, self doubt, and confusion; all things must come to light in the end.

    Warning: excessive amounts of banter

    Summary

    "I'm not sure what I'd have done."
    "And I didn't want to put you in that position.”

    For better or for worse, Arthur knows Merlin's secret. The problem? Merlin doesn't know Arthur knows. This leaves Arthur with a predicament... and an opportunity. A test. Three trials and three opportunities for Merlin to prove he doesn't deserve death. Arthur hopes he will pass them. Maybe then the image of Merlin's golden eyes will stop haunting him.

    (AKA a really in-depth character study of Arthur's psyche but with a giant dose of angst and suspense because DRAMA. Also served with a side helping of Merlin character analysis and difficult moral calls. Lastly, this is really how I wanted Season 3 to go and was my prediction at the time. I stand by it).

    Summary

    After a boring morning of castle duties, Arthur decides to spend the abnormally warm afternoon hunting with his manservant. Thus, it was deep in the woods which caused their inevitable predicaments just a few hours later.

    Or, an interfering goddess decides Arthur and his destiny should be able to talk to each other in their minds.

    Or, I’m a sucker for soul bonding ;)

    Summary

    “So what brings you my way?” Gwaine asked. To anyone but Merlin, it might have been startling to hear the man sound so somber, but Merlin knew Gwaine could take life seriously when he wanted to. He played the fun-loving drunk as well as Merlin played the fool, but Gwaine had his demons as well. Maybe that was why Merlin came here instead of Ealdor or wherever Lancelot was at the moment.

    Merlin forced himself to look up. “I guess I could just use a friend right now."

    When Merlin is banished from Camelot after his magic is revealed, he struggles to believe he has worth outside of Arthur and their supposed destiny together. But Gwaine has always known Merlin deserved better.

    Summary

    Scooting closer to the couch, Merlin lies his head down next to Arthur’s and stares at his horrible sleeping face. As beautiful as Arthur is awake, (and he is beautiful), asleep he’s a mess. A drooling, snoring, scrunching his face weirdly mess, and Merlin absolutely loves him. Loves that Arthur is comfortable enough to fall asleep next to Merlin even knowing he’s less than perfect. Loves that he gets to wake up next Arthur and his dopey smile. Merlin just loves him is all, in any way, shape or form. Night or day. Perfect and messy and beautifully undone.

    Summary

    "That is how you deal with your problems! By politely stating your aim and waiting for your turn to come, instead of coming here with your weapons and no word of warning! D’you reckon it’s easy for me? Not only do I have to deal with the mess he,“ Merlin pointed at Arthur with his chin, “leaves behind him, but now I also have to deal with unplanned assassinations? This world has become a crazy place, isn’t that right, Gwaine?”

    or:

    Arthur's assassins seriously lack style, and Merlin tells them as much. The knights are stunned. So are the assassins. Also, Merlin's mad at Arthur, and so he is determined to ruin his day as much as possible. In the meanwhile, Gwaine's just living his best life (isn't he always?).

    Summary

    “Where is he?” Merlin manages to say to the not-quite-woman in front of him.

    “Albion’s greatest time of need looms on the horizon,” she says, his question apparently nothing to her. “It is time for Arthur Pendragon to rise again and fulfil his destiny. It is time for the Once and Future King to return.”

    “But where is he?” Merlin presses, his age-old impatience with magic and gods and whatever-the-hell-she-is being so damn indirect with him making his voice carry across the empty shore.

    “It is time,” she continues, leveling a glare that leaves his lungs empty, “for Emrys to walk the road to Avalon and retrieve Arthur from the place he has rested.”

    Summary

    Merlin had always put Arthur before himself
    Arthur had always put Merlin before himself
    And that is not what couples do-that is an insult to their relationship. That is what soulmates do. That is what a soul does when it is destined to be in two halves- it cares for the other more.

    What happens when the Old Religion actually actively tries to change the faith they deem unchangeable instead of watching it happen knowing the ending.

    Summary

    What happened to you, Morgana?
    Spinning and whirling inside his head, the question had struck Merlin’s whole being as Excalibur would have. What happened to you? Chuckling dryly, he felt the answers swing inside his mind, unconjured. Ignorance, fear, hatred happened. Loneliness, trust, betrayal happened. Uther, Morgause, Merlin happened. And guilt, sharp as a blade, was now clutching at the warlock’s heart.
    (...)
    “Morgana,” he called, his voice hoarse and weak. It was also thick with tears, which he quickly erased. It would not do to cry – not so soon.

    or

    a rewriting of how Arthur and Morgana's confrontation scene in the episode 'The Sword in the Stone' could have gone, if Merlin had intervened.

    Summary

    His own traitorous eyes, fall to look at the man’s lips, now seeming way more inviting than before and truth be told he’d much prefer to kiss him when he's warm. Feel the softness of his lips, his skin. And it is definitely not the right time for this at all - but his brain is as unruly as his magic at times, and he can't stop it.

    At least he wasn’t a naked statue, or else things would be even more awkward. Although...
