    Summary

    When Merlin realizes he's fallen for Arthur, the main thought that comes to mind is Gwen. He can't do that to her or himself. But as much as he hides his feelings, one step forward always feels like three steps back as Arthur gets brutally injured and tensions rise within the Pendragon family. To make matters worse, a witch has cursed the prince. Oh boy. Here we go!

    Summary

    Warning: SEASON 3 SPOILERS! MENTIONS OF DEATH, VIOLENCE, POSSIBLE GORE.
    Arthur is gone, and Gwen is left to rule the country, along with the help of recently appointed court sorcerer Merlin, and newly forgiven magical ambassador Morgana. Merlin is having a hard time coping with all the loss, but he has to pull it together for Gwen, his lovers, the heir to the throne, and the newest addition to the Pendragon family. Leon's long suffering has yet to cease (because of course the children take directly after their father). Gwaine, Lance, and Morgana are running around like headless chickens trying to take care of their lovers. And the princes... well, chaos is their forte.

    Summary

    After the death of his father, Arthur was crowned king and although Merlin was proud of his l-friend, he knew that it was only the beginning. Morgana was still out there, planning her next move to try to take back Camelot and Agravaine was still working as her spy and who knows how many other enemies that want to see Arthur dead.

    However, Merlin did not, but should have, expect to see a young queen occupied by her general wishing to speak with the now King Arthur. The two seem to hit it off very fast which made him suspicious about the whole ordeal.

    And it was not because he was jealous! Sod off Gwaine!

    Heaven help him if Arthur fell under another love spell again.

    Summary

    Based on the news report,  it sounded as though Arthur had woken up in a lake, miraculously healed, with no realization that a significant amount of time - 1500 years, give or take a couple of decades -  and thrown himself and his sword at a car as soon as he’d seen one, likely believing it to be a monster of some kind. Entirely in character for his Arthur, all things considered. 

    If it’s really Arthur, a small, pessimistic voice in his head reminded him. It could just be a concussed, if well-equipped, LARPer or something, remember. Who happened to be swimming around in the lake you laid Arthur to rest in. That you've remained within an hour's walk of for the past 15 centuries or so. Waiting. A total coincidence. Don't get your hopes up.

    Summary

    An AU of the season 4 finale, wherein Arthur refuses to abandon his castle during Morgana's seige, and Merlin refuses to use magic to take away Arthur's will, so they're at an impasse.

    Rather than break his moral code to bewitch Arthur, Merlin decides to break his secrecy. If Arthur doesn't want to leave his Castle... fine. They won't. Merlin will just have to take it back for him... and all that entails.

    Summary

    What if the Triple Goddess' judgement hadn't been for Arthur, but for Merlin?

    Summary: The Runemark is given to the sorcerer Emrys, and everything that Merlin worked so hard to keep hidden suddenly comes to light.

    Excerpt:
    “I have been sent by the great Disir, to pass judgement onto you, Emrys,” the man said. Arthur scoffed. The man paid him no heed, continuing. “You may be a powerful sorcerer, Emrys, but not even you are above the Disir’s judgement.”
    The man reached into a pocket in his tunic, and brought out a thick copper disc, with raised sigils carved upon the surface. A runemark, Merlin realised. The man placed the disc in Merlin’s palm.
    “The judgement is passed,” he said. “It is done. You must set it right, Emrys. Redeem yourself. For even as Camelot flowers, the seeds of her destruction are being sown.”

    Episode rewrite for 5x05: The Disir.

    Summary

    To start things off.
    Arthur is 23 years old. Gay, and still in the closet.
    Even as everyone around him seems to come out at their own pace, he himself seems stuck in here.
    He wants to tell someone, but there are several reasons why he can't.

    That is... until he's swept off his feet by Martin Emerson. Or, as he calls himself: Merlin.
    A man who is so utterly and completely strange and so not what Arthur expected destiny to throw at him.
    Yet... there was something about the boy. He just couldn't put a finger on it.
