    Summary

    Merlin was told Arthur would rise again when Albion needed him the most, but when he does, it is not only for his duty with the promised land, but to protect the person he cares about most in the world.

    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 over 30k words. I would never trust myself to post something unfinished lol.

    Summary

    Merlin is tired, so so tired. All he wants is a break. If no-one will grant him one, he'll just have to force it by dying (or nearly dying). Arthur find him and is worried, as is to be expected. He drags the unconscious Merlin over to the physician's chambers and makes sure his friend is well taken care of.

    I suck at summaries, lol.

    (I also suck at titles, so double negative whammy for promotion. Let's hope the tags make up for it.)

    Summary

    Arthur was born of magic. Scared and unsure of how to use his power and a father who hates all that is magic, will he and his new friend Merlin be able to learn and co-exist in a world that was made of magic?
    Who will magic call her own in the end?

    Excerpt:
    “Can magic corrupt a person?” Arthur hated how weak he sounded, but it is truly something he didn’t understand and he wanted to know the truth.
    “Is a sword evil or good?” Merlin countered the question slightly. He knows that Arthur needs to see that magic is neutral that it is the wielder who manipulates it.
    “Neither.” Arthur gave Merlin an unsure look.

    Summary

    [One hunting trip. That’s all Arthur wanted. One trip that didn’t involve dangerous magical creatures or bandits or other non-traditional hindrances. For once he would like for his biggest problems to be a damp sleeping bag.
    But no, it could never be that easy. Arthur’s camp was long forgotten as he dangled from the claws of the dragon. He’d woken up to see a dark figure standing over him and the next thing he knew he was dangling hundreds of meters in the air with a pounding headache.]
    Or, Merlin is a dragonlord, the son of the dragonlord Balinor who rules over the dragons in the North. Arthur is the prince Merlin is instructed to kidnap. Balinor is the exasperated father and general who just wanted to legalize magic but accidentally set his son up with the child and heir of his greatest enemy.
    Whoops.

    Summary

    Merlin loved Arthur with all his soul, but he was not in love with him.

    Not that it was something he had decided, or a conclusion he had reached after mulling it over for a long time. He didn’t think about his feelings for Arthur. But if someone asked him what he felt for Arthur, surely that’s what he would say.

    It was a fact. He wasn’t in love with Arthur.

    ...

    Or so he thought. Because maybe, maybe, there are different ways to love and to be in love with someone, and Merlin didn’t know.

    Summary

    They say not to put all your eggs in one basket, but Arthur only has one basket. He must somehow convince Camelot that Merlin - and, by extension, magic - deserves to be free on the actions of the warlock alone. Only, his subjects are difficult to sway, and his nobility harder. Meanwhile, he must battle his growing feelings for his manservant - and the fact that he doesn't only love Merlin.

    In which Merlin must fess up to everything he's ever done in front of all of Camelot, and he has to hope that his good deeds outweigh his evil ones. It has all come down to this.

    Merlin and Arthur encounter a sorceress with less than good intentions in the forest. Her scheme doesn’t go quite according to plan, though, and Merlin is pretty sure Arthur is now enchanted to be in love with him.

    So why isn't Arthur acting any different?

    Summary

    “Sorcerer,” the accusation came hoarsely from the king. Any other person might only have seen the fury and betrayal. Merlin, however, could see Arthur’s world all but shattering behind his eyes. It was like a knife to Merlin’s heart.

    “Yes,” Merlin confirmed in a voice much steadier than he felt.

    “You lied to me.”

    “Yes.”

    “You deceived me.”

    “Yes.”

    “You betrayed me.”

    “No.”

    Arthur’s brow furrowed in the beat of silence that followed.

    “No?” Something hardened behind Arthur’s eyes. The shattered pieces of Arthur were swept to the side, and the King took control. Arthur’s jaw tightened as he raised his chin. The blad was pressed harder into Merlin’s throat, breaking his skin. The iron scent of blood wafted into Merlin’s nose as he felt the steady but slow stream of something wet run down his throat. A ‘drip, drip, drip’ began echoing through Arthur’s chambers, and glancing down, Merlin saw his own lifeblood run along Arthur’s blade before being overtaken by gravity. “Enlighten me,” Arthur cruelly mocked.

    Or:

    Merlin finally confesses his magic to Arthur, and our boys has a lot of things to work out.
