    Summary

    It takes a month after Arthur lifts the ban on magic for him to adjust to the fact that the people around him might actually start to use it. Even stranger is when Merlin learns some from Gaius and, oddly enough, has a bit of a knack for it.

    In which Arthur is obtuse, Merlin is trying his best, and Gwaine, Elyan and Leon don't understand why they can't learn to light fires as easily as Merlin did.

    Summary

    “It’s pretty, isn’t it?” Arthur asks quietly and Merlin nods in agreement.

    “It’s gorgeous.”

    They are silent for a moment.

    “Is that what you brought me here for?” Merlin asks jokingly.

    “No, Merlin,” Arthur drawls and Merlin turns around to look at Arthur, steadying himself with a hand on Arthur’s chest.

    “What is it then? You never act that secretive.”

    “Can a man not have secrets, Merlin?”

    Summary

    Arthur is the king of Pendragon Penitentiary, and his Knights are down one member. The skinny, black-haired boy among the newest crop of inmates may just fit the vacancy in his gang and in his heart, if he can get the stubborn idiot to let down his guard.

    Summary

    Bereft of the emotions that should have come at the implications of the sentence, Uther's tone is stoic as if his own son is a common prisoner. “You are to leave Camelot by nightfall. If we find you have returned to the grounds of this kingdom we will have no choice but to carry out your original sentence in the highest order.”

    Exiled and disinherited? Brilliant.


    An AU where Uther, under the influence of Troll!Catrina and Goblin!Gaius legitimately disinherits Arthur and he must deal with the consequences thereof in an attempt to reclaim Camelot.

    Summary

    “No, Merlin, listen to me. Leave me and save yourself!”
    Merlin snapped his head up, bewildered by what Arthur was saying. He had to be joking, he had to. Did he really expect Merlin to simply bail out of here and leave him alone?
    “Are you out of your mind?!” He shouted and then clamped his mouth shut when the voice echoed in the small room.
    It was better not to gain any unnecessary attention.

    Summary

    Uther has never hesitated to lock Arthur in his chambers for his own safety before. What's to stop him from confining his son for daring to challenge the way Camelot is run?

    Arthur must go up against a new opponent; he must face six long days of boredom.

    Well if he's to be kept in his rooms, Merlin's not going anywhere either.

    Summary

    It started with Leon's horse getting sick.
    How the fuck that created this sequence of events, no one knows.
    or
    Merlin cares too much about the people around him and forgets to care for himself.

    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

    Sighing, Arthur composed himself and resumed his trek around Merlin’s chambers until he reached his bed. It was large—almost as large as Arthur’s. He had made sure of it when he assigned Merlin his new chambers along with the title of Court Sorcerer. He had also made sure of the big, heavy, warm duvet covering it…

    Arthur swallowed hard as he eyed it. He had requested it specially made for Merlin… Only the best for his Court Sorcerer, after all. It was perfect.

    Soft, big, warm, heavy…and best of all, covered in Merlin’s scent.

    Or

    In which Arthur thinks he's sneaky, Merlin just wants to find his favourite duvet, and revelations are made.

    Summary

    Arthur y Merlín tienen una relación especial. Siempre lo han tenido, aun cuando no eran más que príncipe y sirviente. Si bien muchos tuvieron dudas cuando lo notaron por primera vez, eventualmente se volvió un entendimiento común en todo Camelot -e incluso entre algunos otros países- que, donde estaba Arthur, estaba Merlín. Y, donde estaba Merlín, estaba Arthur.

    O, la relación de Arthur y Merlín según lo presenciado y explicado por otros.

    También conocido como:
    Cinco veces que alguien notó que Merlín es la reina, una vez que Merlín lo nota y una vez que lo usa.

    Summary

    If Arthur wants to keep his basketball career in tact, he has to get his grades up. Unfortunately, he's a lost cause when it comes to anything English. It's a good thing Merlin is there to help-- even if they have a history of antagonizing each other.

    Summary

    He thought loving Merlin was one of those things he’d never have to talk about. It was a certainty, as sure as the sun rises in east and sets in the west. It was as sure as the waves always leave only to come back to reach the shore. He loved him, and he would never have him. Things would be too complicated.

    He wished he could define it as something other than longing. But that’s what it was, and he couldn’t stop it, no matter how hard his mind strived to be free.

    Summary

    "There is frost across Merlin’s already pale skin, in his lashes around his unblinking eyes. Agony rips through Arthur’s chest at the sight and he can’t, he just can’t. Death had not seemed so bad when he knew that he would be saving those he cared about most, saving the world at large."

    Arthur is ready to die to stop the Dorocha; he is not ready for Merlin to die as well. Unfortunately, the fact that Merlin doesn't shouldn't be possible without magical aid. This is a fic about Arthur's thought process through a more subtle magic reveal.

    Summary

    Arthur sees a change in Merlin and he isn't sure when exactly it happened. It occurs to the Crown Prince that, perhaps for the first time since they met, that he truly doesn't know his manservant, his closest friend, as well as he always assumed he did. Simply talking to Merlin is out of the question because asking would lead to Merlin discovering the one thing Arthur has been keeping close to his chest: his ever growing feelings towards the man. He enlists the knights to observe, but when someone from Merlin's past shows up in Camelot with ill intent, Arthur sees and hears more than he ever expected. Will Merlin finally let Arthur into his heart? Will Arthur accept Merlin, secrets and all?

    Summary

    When Arthur, Gwen, and the knights return to an unfamiliar world, they are faced with an even more unfamiliar Merlin. This Merlin doesn't smile, her laugh no longer dances through the air, and her once-expressive eyes have grown cold, hardened, and distant. She's seen too much in her time spent alone, wandering the world and protecting the land where the kingdoms of Albion once stood. Merlin is tearing herself apart and has been for far too long. All Arthur wants is one chance to put the pieces back together, to say the words he should have been saying to her all along.

     

    STATUS UPDATE: This story is a WIP and I'm struggling right now to work on this story.

I'm so excited for you to read what I'm planning. This is the biggest writing undertaking I've done in years and I want to give it all I've got. HIATUS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!

    Summary

    Arthur grumbled as his dart once more missed the centre bullseye. There was a groan from Merlin and a laugh from Morgana, before a squeal from Gwen when Lance’s dart hit perfectly right in the centre of the dartboard.
    Lance grinned sheepishly at Arthur as their friends all cheered. The stallholder winked and passed them both their final darts, promising Lance a prize if he got the last one also in the bullseye.
    Which, of course, he did. The lights around the awning of the fairground stall flashed and a klaxon blared happily. A couple of passersby cheered and Lance blushed at the attention. Rolling his eyes, Arthur threw his last dart, missed the bullseye and shoved his hands in his jacket pockets. Merlin clapped him on the back, laughing good-naturedly.
    “Better luck next time!” he said sympathetically, but his grin told Arthur that he wasn’t holding out much hope that Arthur would do any better on the next game either.

    Summary

    You've never loved like this before.

    Maybe that's why you don't realize it at first, or maybe denial is just that strong of a drug. Maybe Morgana has always been right (and the thought alone makes you recoil), and you really are an obvious idiot. You shake your head as if dispersing her imaginary laugh and mockery, there's no use in pointing fingers—Whatever the reason might be, the thing is at first you don't know you love him.

    And, god, do you love him.
