    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

    “What was his name? The gardener’s son?” Merlin said casually as if he didn’t know that it was him.

    His heart was thundering, and it felt like an eternally went by, but it was barely a second.

    “Can’t remember,” Arthur said, looking down at his drink. He shrugged before taking a sip then adding, “I remember it was something unusual though, an uncommon name but it had suited him.”

    As they continued the drinking game Merlin kept wondering if he should have told Arthur right then it had been his first kiss too.

    Merlin finds out that one of his best mates he met in uni is also the same boy he shared his first kiss with when he was nine.

    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.

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

    Destiny was cruel."

    Arthur marries Gwen and breaks his own heart and Merlin's in the process.

    If you're looking for an angsty time, but a happy and smutty ending, then this is a fic for you!

    Summary

    American High School AU. The List was posted, and it was exactly as Merlin had always known it would be: just him, and Arthur, fighting to death by single combat for the sole spot at the top. Two young men, two four 4.0s, one valedictorian, one year left of classes at Camelot Prep - the perfect recipe for a high stakes, cutthroat competition.

    Summary

    He noticed his hands lingered a moment too long on the King’s bare skin, and yanked them away as if he’d been burned.

    Stop, he told himself, stop touching what you can’t have.

    He caught his eyes drifting to the King’s face in the patrol, and snapped his gaze to the ground.

    Stop, he told himself, stop looking at what you can’t have.

    He caught his ears straining to hear the King’s laugh amongst the rest, and hurriedly slipped away from the group.

    Stop, he told himself, stop listening to what you can’t have!

    He caught himself breathing in the scent of his King’s shirt, and dropped the garment like it shocked him.

    Stop! He told himself, stop, stop, stop!

    He didn’t catch himself in time, this time, when the faintest bit of sweet berry juice dripped from a pale mouth, and he pressed his lips sweetly against his King’s, tasting the strawberry that lingered.

    “Don’t stop,” Arthur teased, wide eyed and clearly shocked, when they parted and he came back to his senses, “we were just getting started…”

    Or

    4 times Merlin doesn't act on his feelings for Arthur + 1 time he does.

    Summary

    The colour of the rich, Pendragon cloak blooms in the warm light of spring. The sharp thorn of love threatens to draw blood, then. As days grow longer, hearts grow fonder. With flushed faces, abandoned stations and duties— affection taints the air thick as the very oxygen breathed. Touches become electric, and glances grow heated.

    Like the first rose of midspring, love blossoms in the hearts of two men closer than any.

     

    Or

     

    “Arthur?” Merlin murmured late one night, as he prepped the bed for the King to retire. Moonlight poured through the window, and the warlock almost glowed as he was bathed in it.

    The soft, tender way the name fell from his lips send a shiver down the King’s body, causing an outbreak of gooseflesh atop his skin. “Merlin?”

    “It’s time for you to rest, Sire… You’ve worked hard enough today.”

    Summary

    When an immortal Merlin met Arthur, he thought he'd finally found a way to keep a friend (or maybe something more) for the rest of eternity. As it turns out, fate must hate his guts, first for making him immortal and then for snatching away the only person that could physically stay. Because nothing ever was permanent, not even the Gods.

    Summary

    Merlin was having what you would call a terrible, no good, completely horrible day.
    Why? Arthur decided he needed to learn how to fight. And Merlin couldn’t tell him that he already had magic to defend himself. So now he was stuck with testing out different weapons to see which best suited him.

    Arthur teaches Merlin to use daggers to fight

    Summary

    For this prompt:

    Arthur returns... but because of a series of unlikely events (and perhaps a bit of morose dragging of feet because he can't bring himself to believe the signals), Merlin misses the boat. By the time he makes it to the lake, signs of Arthur abound but Arthur is nowhere to be found. Magical tracking being less reliable than one might think, when Merlin finally does manage to find him Arthur is bizarrely well-adjusted, living in a flatshare in London with roommates who think he's batty but mostly harmless, and working an improbable job. Enter: Merlin, who Arthur absolutely is not expecting to still be alive.

    Summary

    You've always seen them. The titles of a person's soul, a person's destiny. But a human can only have one. So when you were walking by the lake one day, you saw a figure sitting there, bowed by the weight of the world. And he had multiple titles. Who is this mysterious man? And why does he speak so bitterly of Destiny?
    -
    Basically, Morgana gets reincarnated and Merlin needs a therapist because Arthur should never have died. (And I am terrible at summaries.)
