    Summary

    Arthur and Merlin are the best of best friends, which is why Arthur lets himself be talked into pretending to be Merlin's boyfriend for the evening. It's only supposed to be for one night, to get that asshole Cenred off Merlin's back, but as it turns out, Arthur maybe likes the role a little too much.

    Summary

    "Merlin rolled his eyes. “It’s not that big of a deal. All I did was go to the market and bought this good luck charm from a kind old man. Arthur probably won’t even comment on it, but I thought I would at least do that.”
    Gwaine went silent, a frown on his face before realization clouded over. “Wait, Merlin, did you say you bought a good luck charm?”
    Merlin frowned. “Yeah, why?”
    Gwaine clamped a hand over his mouth, his face growing red from trying not to let loose his laughter. “Merlin, you poor soul, they’re- “"
    In which Merlin tries to be kind and get Arthur gifts for the holidays but for each one it carries a special meaning, putting a newfound strain on their relationship. When things get out of hand, will they be able to just wrap up their problems and throw them away? Or will it possibly end everything that they've ever had?

    Summary

    (A Merhartwin AU very loosely based on the movie Before I Go to Sleep)

    Video Entry #1
    Eggsy turns on the camera in a rush, turning the camera in his hand so the lens faced him. He then started speaking nervously, “My name is Gary ‘Eggsy’ Hart and I’m an amnesiac. Tonight as I sleep my mind will erase everythin’… everythin’ that I know today, everythin’ that I did today, and I will wake up tomorrow thinkin’ that I have my whole life ahead of me, and the truth is… The truth is half my life is over.” He takes a shaky breath, “You need to trust Doctor Merlin with as much as you possibly can. He’s the only one who can truly help you through this.”

    Summary

    Arthur saves Merlin again and again, and Merlin saves Arthur too. A continuous cycle that becomes almost too commonplace, until this time, when Merlin's heart gives out, it gives out for good. Merlin finds there is something after this world and now is faced with the choice - return to the brokenhearted King, mourning Queen and those he loves in Camelot or discover what awaits him in the realm beyond.

    Summary

    Merlin is waiting. He's been waiting for, well, he's lost track of exactly how long. Eleven hundred years? Twelve? And then, just like that, Arthur is back. No neon signs or clapping thunder to announce his return- just Arthur, standing in the middle of the sidewalk.

    Merlin knows he should be more worried than he is about the reason for Arthur's return. What danger or threat or pressing need has called him back? But while Merlin and Arthur try to figure it out, there's no harm in being glad, is there? After all, Merlin has missed him. Maybe more than he realizes.

    (I expect this fic to be between 5-7 chapters, updated every 4-7 days. Title taken from "The Call" by Rupert Brooke.)

    Summary

    Merlin Emrys is the new kid in Camelot High who just simply wanted to blend in. But of course, not everything's easy for this boy. To keep his mother happy, he decided to try out for the school's football team only to endure his football captain, Arthur Pendragon, who seemingly found picking on Merlin somewhat amusing.

    And Merlin learns, as time goes by, that there's a fine line between hate and love.

    Summary

    EXCERPT:

    “What are you doing?” Merlin asked, sounding tired. “The war is over. Magic is no longer banned. Take your men and go home. Live your lives in peace.”

    “There can be no peace so long as that castle stands!” the sorcerer yelled.

    Merlin ignored him, addressing the three others by his side instead. “This isn’t what magic is for. You know it isn't. If you listen to people like him, you will be driven into the same darkness that forced me to end Morgana’s life. Is that really what you want?”

    The three men glanced at each other.

    Uncertain, Gwen thought.

    The sorcerer in black let out a yell, and thrust his arm forward, a fireball flying from his hand.

    Merlin barely spared it a glance.

    ------------

    SUMMARY:

    A year after Arthur's death, and magic is permitted once again in Camelot. But Uther's legacy lives long, and many want revenge for his crimes, now with magic at their disposal.

    As Camelot stands faced with an army lead by four sorcerers, there is but one who can save them all -- if only he can be persuaded to leave his silent vigil, upon the shores of Avalon.

    Summary

    Whilst trying to prove himself to his father, Arthur ends up wounded in a tournament and receives medical treatment from Merlin as Gaius is away from Camelot. Before he left, Gaius asked Merlin to deliver a vial to one of his customers which just so happens to be a powerful aphrodisiac. Plans don't go so smoothly for Merlin however, as he is faced with saving Arthur from yet another person who wants him and Uther dead. As Merlin's chaotic day continues, somehow Arthur ends up with the aphrodisiac instead causing trouble (and fun times) to pursue. An emotionally constipated Arthur is forced to face his emotions whilst Merlin is put to the test; can he resist the man of his dreams for the duty of Camelot and for the sake of their destiny?

    Summary

    Merlin continues to hide his magic from Arthur while saving his royal backside, but everything changes when Merlin meets Lancelot, a wandering man who dreams of becoming a knight of Camelot. Merlin struggles with his growing one-sided attraction towards Lancelot as he risks everything to bends the rules, and Arthur attempts to comfort Merlin and maybe falls a little in love along the way. (Gaius is exasperated, if anyone wants to know.)

    A story of love and friendship, awkward conversations and hugs, where all that is noble and fair might not be written in a royal decree.

    Summary

    Sometimes love lasts forever even if it's one sided.
    Here is the story of Merlin, his life after he was cheated out of his passage to Avalon and the one person he ever truly loved.

    Forever is an awfully long time when one has to live it alone.
    Even if one is the greatest warlock that ever lived.
