    Summary

    When Queen Ygraine died, a grief-stricken King Uther struck out at magic and started the genocide known as the Great Purge. The sorcerers who could, escaped across the borders to Camelot’s neighbouring countries where they formed the organisation known as the Opposition, while those who stayed founded the Resistance. Throughout the years, both organisations have succeeded in infiltrating almost every one of Camelot’s government agencies, including the Knights of Camelot – Uther’s elite corps.

    Twenty years after the Purge, Princess Morgana’s magic secretly surfaces and the Opposition sends Merlin to Camelot to teach her how to control it. When the Resistance tries to assassinate Crown Prince Arthur, Merlin saves his life, and as a reward, finds himself a Squire of Camelot. Now he must navigate a gruelling training regimen, run-ins with the Resistance, royal visitors from other countries, and still find the time to teach Morgana magic while staying undercover until the time is right.

    Summary

    When Uther Pendragon gets a clue about the legendary dragon island, a place where dragons and the last kin of the dragon lords are said to live,
    he sends out his son and his knights to find it. And destroy it.
    The war path, however, did not calculate the storm that was about to come.
    And sooner than expected, Merlin and Arthur find themselves alone on the island.
    Faced with Merlin's past that only he is aware of. And secrets about Balinor, that should not have come to light this way.
    And to top it all of, Merlin is alone with Arthur. Who doesn't even know that he's already confessed.

    Oh yeah. And let's not forget the clusterfuck that Sir Leon has to deal with. :)

    Summary

    At first, it hadn’t crossed his mind- not really- that Merlin may have such a distinct and specific taste in men. It had all fallen into place when one fateful afternoon, Merlin spoke about some Greek hero, some ancient, Hellenic lad by the name of Achilles.

    or,

    In which Arthur wants to look like Achilles to win Merlin's heart, but of course, he's missing the whole point.

    Written for Scruffy Pendragon Fest 2020.

    Summary

    With every friendly touch (and lie) Merlin falls deeper in love (and despair) with Arthur, yet as always he is reminded why they can never be so every night he bleeds until he falls into a dreamless sleep; hoping for an ending with his Once and Future King.

    Summary

    Arthur and Merlin have a special relationship. They always have, even when they were prince and servant. While many question it when first noticing, eventually it becomes an understanding in Camelot—and even among some other countries—that where there is Arthur, there is Merlin. And, where there is Merlin, there is Arthur.
     

    Or

    Arthur and Merlin's relationship as witnessed and explained by others.

     

    Also, or

    Five times someone realizes that Merlin is the Queen, one time Merlin realizes it himself, and one time he owns it.

    Summary

    Arthur had finally put his finger on it.
    The thing that had made Merlin stand out, the thing that had intrigued him about the boy ever since the first time he’d met him. The thing that was going to get him killed… Merlin had magic. Not only had it, but used it freely all the bloody time. It was only a matter of time before someone saw him do it, and then they’d report him to the king and Merlin would be dragged out into the courtyard and executed.
    Well, not if Arthur had anything to do about it.

     
    Mid series one, Arthur, for once not being totally oblivious, discovers that Merlin has magic. The problem is, having magic gets people killed and Arthur very much prefers Merlin alive. It turns out making sure nobody sees Merlin do magic is rather a full-time job however...

    Summary

    The first time Arthur notices that Merlin disappears at the most inconvenient of times is after he miraculously survives the bite of the Questing Beast. He might've forgotten all about it if it didn't keep happening; if it didn't leave him with a worrying obsession over what his servant is up to—only out of concern, of course. It's when they're searching for Morgana that Arthur finally gets a chance to follow, though he might end up finding much more than he bargained for.

    He's not sure he's complaining, though.

    Summary

    In the age old tradition of all the clichés we love enough to call tropes: Merlin owns a bookshop full of board games and everything D&D. His friend Arthur (who would never enjoy such silliness, thank you very much Mer-lin) is a frequent visitor.

    And they’re best mates, nothing more. Except maybe Arthur’s jealous, and maybe Merlin’s catching feelings. But snuggling and watching Doctor Who is totally platonic, right?
