    Summary

    angels are only created to be silent, invisible guardians to the humans they were made for, and after many years of waiting, merlin is finally given his charge: the prince of camelot.

    merlin has been taught that angels who have emotions are the ones who get casted out from divinity; though, he never really understood the appeal of “feelings,” so there is nothing for him to worry about…right?

    Summary

    Arthur Pendragon works sixty hour weeks and is devoted to his family name, until one night Uther goes just a bit too far. Restless and confused, Arthur gets into his car and drives until he can't. It is the middle of the night in a small village in Wales, and a helpful officer directs him to a B&B for the night.

    There he finds a kindly innkeeper, his very weird historian gremlin nephew, odd people, odd situations, and even odder - himself.

    A slightly absurd and very gentle story about coming back to yourself, finding a true family, and realizing that historian gremlins are actually really hot and rather amazing, and perfect to fall in love with.

    Summary

    "Me, Sire? A sorcerer? Of course not."

    "You have magic! I saw you! And you don't deny it either!"

    Merlin rolled his eyes in the most ostentatious way possible. "Well yes, of course I have magic. I'm a warlock."

    "You just said you weren't a sorcerer!"

    "Exactly."

    Summary

    Longstead at the foot of the Feorre Mountains.
    Mysterious sickness affecting only young men.
    Merlin is sent to treat the illness and report his findings.
    Before the trip is over, every past alliance will be challenged and Merlin may just have to solve this problem on his own.
    Well, nothing new there.

    This fic was inspired by a conversation between friendlyneighborhoodwriter and Glon_Morski on Land of Myth Discord server regarding Arthur’s comment to Merlin about not being able to find his own backside in the Lamia episode (s.4, ep.8). So, it does have spoilers and may not make sense if you haven’t watched that episode. Or, maybe not. Happy reading!

    I do not own Merlin.

    Summary

    It’s impossible, he knows this, Arthur has died so very long ago but it’s his scent, to the very heart of him, muscles and skin and blood; it’s Arthur’s scent.

    Even as he understands the impossibility of it he marches forward nonetheless, tears pricking his eyes at the memories assaulting his every step: shared kisses under the moonlight, fevered touches alight with want and need, smiles, fights, tears, love, love love; laughter and pain alike coloured their short time together and Merlin has never been happy since.

    Summary

    Taryan always felt she pulled the short sticks in life, but walking out of a dirty and unkept lake was a new low, even for her. Taryan would emerge from the water and stumble in the beloved story of “Merlin”.
    After coming to terms of transitioning worlds, Taryan begins to think about her survival. Which proves to be challenging with suspicious glances coming her way, mostly falling from the protagonist, Merlin. A secret conceiver himself, that is convinced more is at play with Taryan’s ploy of a servant girl with “amnesia”. Taryan decides she won’t limit herself to being just a “background” character and involves herself in changing the story.
    This involves saving characters' lives, starting (unexpected) relationships, and trying to lessen the burdens Merlin faces, despite his inquiries of her background. Taryan will learn not everything is predictable with neverseen characters' secrets, a reveal of a bastard son, and dark themes Taryan swears never would have seen the light of day in the story. Taryan’s choices are also no easy tasks, no thanks to a certain dragon that advises her own death and a destiny-bound warlock who might heed its advice.

    Summary

    Merlin watches Arthur leave. He has to forcibly remind himself about what he can and cannot have; who and what he is. Thrice damned. Blessed to be alive, in Camelot, and at Arthur’s side. He needs nothing more.

    For now, Merlin has paperwork to do and more magical artefacts to buy back from the citizens of Camelot. He takes a couple of moments to reconstruct himself, reaching for some ambient magic and using it to stabilise his tired body and revitalise his mind.

    He can’t fall over when there is more work to do. When he opens his eyes, Merlin straightens his itchy court outfit and sets off to be the best Court Sorcerer he can be.


    The sequel to Soldier, Peasant, King where Merlin, now serving as Camelot’s Court Sorcerer, must weigh his personal wish to accept the king’s mutually-desired advances to court him against his professional duty: to help bring about and sustain Camelot’s Golden Age as prophesied and witnessed in the Crystal of Neahtid. Of course, the very same Crystal paints a future for him and Arthur as a harbinger of heartache.

    Summary

    On the surface, Arthur Pendragon seems to be a confident, callous, cavalier arsehole with a culinary degree. But there are just the tiniest suggestions of cracks in that shell that Merlin has glimpsed over the past few weeks… Regardless, there was no way this would end in anything but catastrophe, even if Arthur wasn't a great big bloody git, because he was Morgana's brother, and Morgana was Merlin's boss, and things like that were never wise.

    Summary

    One by one, Merlin rids Arthur of his enemies and of those that seek to do him harm.

    Day by day the blood runs thicker, threatening to drown him.

    Merlin is tired of the endless killing, but marches on regardless.

    Twisting the knife into the assassin’s heart, Merlin whispers into his ear, “You should have killed me first.” Merlin isn’t sure if that’s a plea, an instruction or a taunt. Either way, it’s a fruitless endeavour, seeing as the man falls lifeless on the floor at Merlin’s feet.

    Summary

    When Arthur decides he is ready to try to court the one he wants, Merlin swallows his feelings for his friend and offers to help. Some one-on-one quality time ensues, his feelings grow instead of the opposite, and everything hurts a little more than he had expected (right up until it doesn't anymore).

    Summary

    "Why are you doing this? Why are you still behaving like a servant?"

    Arthurs tired eyes looked up to Merlin, both curious and the shining bright blue that they always were, and still are, even as he was dying, even with the dark purple rings surrounding his eyes.

    "Do you truly believe that I'm just your servant?"

    -----

    This fic takes place post-canon while having multiple flashbacks to when arthur was alive.

    These characters are not my own, just merely a prediction of what might have happened after adding merlin/arthur
