    Summary

    “Camelot needs you.”

    Sometimes, Merlin’s steadfastness can be admirable. At this moment, though, Arthur rather feels like throwing something. 

    “Camelot needs you too, you idiot,” Arthur snaps. 

    “I’m just a—“
     
    “If you finish that sentence, gods help me—“ Arthur points a threatening finger. “I thought I had made it quite clear. How many times do I need to repeat it to get it through your thick skull?”

    “Never said it once, actually,” mutters Merlin, rather insolently. 

    “No, fairly sure I have,” Arthur insists. “If you weren’t listening, that’s your problem.”

     
    A Battle of Camlann AU where Arthur knows about Merlin’s magic, Merlin is Camelot’s Court Sorcerer, and neither one of them dies.

    Summary

    Merlin watches Arthur leave. He has to forcibly remind himself about what he can and cannot have; who and what he is. Thrice damned. Blessed to be alive, in Camelot, and at Arthur’s side. He needs nothing more.

    For now, Merlin has paperwork to do and more magical artefacts to buy back from the citizens of Camelot. He takes a couple of moments to reconstruct himself, reaching for some ambient magic and using it to stabilise his tired body and revitalise his mind.

    He can’t fall over when there is more work to do. When he opens his eyes, Merlin straightens his itchy court outfit and sets off to be the best Court Sorcerer he can be.


    The sequel to Soldier, Peasant, King where Merlin, now serving as Camelot’s Court Sorcerer, must weigh his personal wish to accept the king’s mutually-desired advances to court him against his professional duty: to help bring about and sustain Camelot’s Golden Age as prophesied and witnessed in the Crystal of Neahtid. Of course, the very same Crystal paints a future for him and Arthur as a harbinger of heartache.

    Summary

    When Arthur decides he is ready to try to court the one he wants, Merlin swallows his feelings for his friend and offers to help. Some one-on-one quality time ensues, his feelings grow instead of the opposite, and everything hurts a little more than he had expected (right up until it doesn't anymore).

    Summary

    Being a Duke isn't always easy. Sure there's the money and not having to work a day in your life. But then there's the press, the intense scrutiny of one's personal life, and the inability to spontaneously grab tacos with your mates without fear of being recognized. Most difficult of all is trying to find love, especially when the only person you ever loved betrayed you. Fate deals Arthur another chance. Will he get his happy ending this time?

    "It had been 6 years and 13 days since the night Arthur broke his heart.

    When Lance introduced Merlin to Arthur, cluelessly, Arthur had taken one look at Merlin and said, “We’re acquainted” and walked away."

    Summary

    When Arthur finds out about Merlin’s magic, he banishes him on the spot and sends him back to Ealdor. Well, at least that’s what everybody thinks.

    The truth is that Arthur just wants Merlin to be safe, and far away from Camelot, where Uther is becoming more and more ruthless. So, he secretly asks Gwaine to go back to Ealdor with Merlin, to keep an eye on him and make sure he is all right.

    Or

    Gwaine was just looking forward to spending his spring nights at the tavern, flirting and drinking ale. Instead he now has to juggle between a heartbroken, besotted, overdramatic warlock, and a stubborn, protective, and emotionally constipated prince. Just his luck. His only solution: quickly find a way to bring the two idiots together.

    Summary

    Arthur awoke upon a patch of flowers with no memory of his past life. He spent months lost in the modern world, alone and confused.

    Until he stumbled upon a stunning young man sitting beside a lake and holding a fishing pole in the most awkward way possible.

    “Rise and shine, dollophead.”

    Summary

    Arthur is hit by a spell during a routine outing and at first nothing seems untoward. But strange dreams leave Merlin unable to ignore his inconvenient feelings about a certain royal prat. A threat against Morgana forces the two into close quarters, forcing various facts and opinions to the surface. It's difficult to ignore the obvious once personal defenses have been lowered.

    Summary

    Upon misled beliefs; Merlin teases Arthur for having feelings for Guinevere- a teasing which leads to a revelation that Merlin wishes he never heard. Now, with his bond with Arthur hanging in the balance, with the threat of his destiny being ripped away from him looming in the distance; Merlin must confront Arthur's accusation, with nothing but his truth to speak and his future to hope for.
    But perhaps, it only takes a conversation to unravel the truth that both of them have been hiding from each other.
    Perhaps, it would take one conversation to make sense of this complicated mess of things they live and breathe in blind belief.
    Perhaps- their words, their actions, are the culmination of a feeling that they could never comprehend, and of a dream, they never dared to dream alone.

    Summary

    “Are you daydreaming about running away again, Merlin? Or did you just forget you actually have duties to attend to this evening?” Arthur’s words were sharp as the blades he wielded but his voice was pillowed with the beginnings of what could be concern. He would never let it show through and shine like the star of the show it could have been, though. He had appearances to uphold.

    Merlin understood. Truly, he did. He had his own appearances to uphold.

    He stepped away from Arthur, shaking his hand off of his shoulder, and crossed the room to Arthur’s wardrobe. “I didn’t hear you come in, my Lord.”

    Summary

    When his younger brother, Mordred, finds himself in serious trouble, Merlin can't just sit back and let his life fall apart. So, out of options, he turns to the one person who could possibly help him—the enormously wealthy business owner Arthur Pendragon.

    Arthur agrees to help, after some consideration—but of course, everything comes at a price, and for Merlin, it happens to be his hand in marriage.

    It's a matter of convenience, of course. Arthur needs a fake spouse to get his father and the public off his back about finding a bride, and Merlin needs the money. It's purely convenience.

    At least, that's what Merlin thinks...

    Summary

    The one where Arthur finds out about Merlin’s magic during a hunting trip gone bad, and Merlin, to prevent his powers from falling into the wrong hands, entrusts them to Arthur. Once that he becomes the recalcitrant keeper of his manservant’s magic, the king has the opportunity to form his own opinion about it.

    Well, if you ask Arthur, Merlin might be the most powerful warlock to ever walk the earth, but his magic doesn’t feel all that scary. It is almost cuddly. And affectionate. And protective, bordering on clingy. On reflection, it almost seems as if Merlin’s magic is fond of him.

    The king vows to ask Merlin for an explanation as soon as he has managed to bring his friend back from wherever he has disappeared to, and defeat the mysterious dark force plotting against Camelot.

    Summary

    The prince wagged a tongue ripe with teases and bared arms firm with pride and bulging with the blood of an alpha protector.

    Merlin had always had a weakness for a man’s arms.

    Then Arthur’s eyes shined with an unspoken dare.

    Give me a reason to touch you.

    Summary

    Trapped in the dungeon, Merlin couldn’t stop himself from fidgeting. Each whisper of wind, every brush of straw, felt like the commanding fingers of the blonde prat pressing him down into the dirt.

    Do you know how to walk on your knees?

    Good luck that Merlin was always quick to learn.

    Summary

    "Merlin."

    "Yes, sire?"

    "Have you ever been in love?"

     

    There are so many things holding Merlin back; Arthur’s title, their social positions, Merlin’s magic, Arthur himself.

    Being in love is a hard thing to understand, and Arthur can hardly understand head nor toe of it, but Merlin will always be there to explain things to him.

    But goddess, these two are both oblivious idiots.
