    Summary

    Arthur scrambled back in surprise as a figure sat up, shaking broken moss and bark out of its hair and sputtering nonsense.

    It was a human.

    Or Arthur thought it was a human. It had black hair, pale skin, and big ears.

    His eyes opened.

    They were made of a brilliant gold that looked as though it had survived a hundred centuries and could survive thousands more. Wisdom, unspeakable. Power, unbreakable.

    He was fae.

    “Why are you dollopheads all staring at me? Is there something wrong with my ears?”

    OR

    Merlin claims they've met before, but Arthur doesn't remember the pesky fae at all. He also can't figure out why he isn't dead yet or how to get the idiot to quit following him around.

    Summary

    Prompt: "There is a beautiful statue of a person in the middle of a large city, and the rumor surrounding the statue is that when they touch hands with their soulmate, they will become human. Naturally, it becomes a perfect photo and video opportunity to pose with while holding its hand. One cute selfie attempt results in an empty statue podium and you just barely catching a very confused person in your arms."

    After centuries of waiting for Arthur’s return, and the ancient king showing no sign of resurrecting anytime soon, Merlin decides to turn himself into a stone statue and wait out the remaining years in a semi-conscious state. He places a charm upon himself, making it so that he will change back once Arthur returns and finds him. A plaque on the statue’s plinth reads as much: “Whoever holds dominion over this soul of stone / Need only touch it to turn it to flesh and bone.” It becomes something of a must-try in the city, and despite thousands of people interacting with the statue every year, no one succeeds in turning him back into a human. That is, until one day…

    Summary

    This fic is inspired by a completely wild and spiralling-out-of-hand discussion we had on a merlin twitter gc. I'm trying to keep it as PG as possible, okay?

    Prompt: Remember how in season 1 there was a shot of Gaius's table, and there were some inexplicable stuff like a rabbit mask on the table, among others? Yeah, let's see a scene where Merlin gets to call out Gaius's.....rabbit problem - featuring, borderline not-PG innuendos, Gaius epically failing to explain to an innocent!Merlin, and poor, poor Arthur.

    Crack, kind of.

    Summary

    Arthur should have learned by now that when Merlin gets a bad feeling about something, he should listen. When he doesn’t the consequences are more grave than he could ever imagine-especially for Merlin.

    Summary

    Ethereal gold eyes serenely peered at Arthur, his face looking like Merlin's usual earnest self, but there was an otherworldly quality that Arthur couldn't decipher. "I have a bleeding wound on my back, an arrow hole on my shoulder, a stab wound on my stomach. The magic I've used would have killed a normal sorcerer long ago. I shouldn't be alive. If I am human now, I think my human side will abide by that rule." He smiled ruefully, oblivious to the king's horror.

    "There is only so much I can do in a physical body, even as Emrys, but I've...always done differently than what is told." Emrys gave him a small smile - more Merlin bled through the facade, but as a result, a pained expression shadowed him, and his palms hovered over Leon's fatal wound with occasional trembles giving away his weakness.

    "Arthur, could you bring me to the lake of Avalon, once it's over? I think I'd like to be there, please."

    In which there is a reveal, and a struggle of acceptance, self-worth, and destiny. Arthur learns just who exactly his Merlin is, and the protector is now the one needing to be saved before it's too late.

    Summary

    Gideon is a fourteen year old boy who wants to know the real tea. Camelot has a lot of secrets to offer.

    1. The prince's manservant has magic and everyone knows (except the prince)

    2. The prince is in love with his manservant and everyone knows (except the manservant)

    OR The Office if it was Merthur in Camelot

    ...

    “Shouldn’t you be doing- do you have a job?” The two turned to him.

    “I don’t have a job. I’m fourteen. Mum makes good money in the kitchens and I just stay out of trouble.” Sir Gwaine raised an eyebrow.

    “Oh, you do a good job of that, do you?” He blushed. It wasn’t like he had been arrested yet.

    “How do you come to the banquets if you’re not a servant yourself?” Merlin was gawking at him as he asked. It was the most emotion he had had on his face for days.

    “Shouldn’t you be more concerned about yourself? The love of your life is over there getting courted.” Gideon pointed over his shoulder.

    Summary

    Merlin's lungs fill with wildflowers. 

    He awakens bitterly one evening, with daisies and milkweed growing up his esophagus, and chokes on petals until the sun rises.

    Merlin's lungs fill with wildflowers, and his veins grow vines. When the world goes to sleep, he bathes his body in the cool summer rain, and lets the flowers asphyxiate him. They like a little bit of rain. 

    He bathes in rainwater.
