    Summary

    Set during/after the S2 finale, what if Balinor had not died in the forest, but had made it back to Camelot, only for Uther to betray him as soon as he finished saving them from the dragon?

    This is the last straw for Merlin, leaving Arthur to deal with Merlin's disappearance, struggling with unknown feelings and the rumours that now brand him an enemy, and leaving Merlin to either try and start over anew, or seek out revenge.

    Summary

    Merlin always thought Arthur would emerge from the lake of Albion. He thought that once the day came for his King to rise again Merlin would feel it and come running back to Arthur. But what really happened was that Arthur was reborn and given a second life with no memories of Camelot.
    Merlin completely missed out on 22 years of Arthur's life before he realized he was alive. (How did he miss that?)
    Also, everybody else is back as well.

    Summary

    Merlin's parents died when he was a baby, leaving the son of the last Dragonlord in the care of Kilgharrah. When it became clear Merlin needed to be in human hands, Kilgharrah dropped the feral child on Uther Pendragon's doorstep. In the end, no one has any idea how to raise an unimaginably powerful and unimaginably stubborn warlock. They all lend a hand, but ultimately it is Gaius, the least paternal of them all, who saves the day. Not all heroes wear capes. Sometimes a withering eyebrow is enough.

    Summary

    Made from darkness and death itself, an ancient creature rises. Seeking the destruction of Camelot and all who live there.

    Meanwhile... Merlin's magic is revealed.

    -----

    All of Camelot was eerily quiet. The kind of quiet that was unsettling rather than peaceful. Something was wrong and Merlin wasn’t the only one who could feel it.

    Summary

    “Where did you learn to do that?” Gwaine asked, following Merlin up the bank.
     
    “This is how normal people fish,” Merlin replied dryly. “Not trying to stab them with swords.”

    “This is a knife,” Gwaine retorted, sounding every bit as sulky as he felt.

    “Still, you didn’t catch a fish.”

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

    Gwaine saves a young Merlin from a beating and ends up with a new little brother to take care of on his travels.

    Or, what would Merlin be like if he had Gwaine influencing him over his formative years?

    Summary

    The thing about memories that nobody really talks about is how you don’t realize that they’re gone until it’s too late. You only start to panic when you can remember having a memory, but not being able to recall the actual thing.

    At year 300, Merlin started a diary. A record of everything he could remember. That way he could protect himself from the greedy hands of time.

    He read those books every year. Once he was done with the last one it would be time to start the first again. Merlin clutched desperately onto the memories of his friends, his family.

    But after 300 years was year 400.

     

    After 400 came 500.

     

    Eventually year 600 rolled around too.

    700…

    800…

     

    And magic can do very little for the mind, when the heart is already broken.

    Summary

    Merlin has wanted Arthur for many years, it’s hard to know when it started, he had never intended for Arthur to find out the truth, and even when Arthur reciprocated, he managed to ruin everything.

    It would take at least six rolls of parchment for Merlin to list every reason Arthur can’t be with him, most are fairly obvious reasons. But Merlin finds himself - himself! - slowly strikeing each reason off the list.

    A hot and bothered and messy pandemonium ensues.

    Summary

    Arthur Pendragon has been King of Camelot for over a year. Despite being insecure about all his responsibilities, he wants Camelot to be a safe kingdom for everyone. Alongside his friends and his sister Morgana, he goes to a druid camp to arrange a treaty to lift the magic ban. Arthur thought it was going to be an easy task until Merlin, called Emrys, made them question their knowledge of magic.

    Merlin, also known as Emrys, the most powerful warlock on this earth, grew up with the druids almost all his life. He always kind of denied the prophecy and his great role in the balance of magic, despite the exclamations and expectations others have, but that was until Arthur Pendragon came into his life and the events begin to act in favor of this famous prophecy.

    Will Arthur and Merlin be able to face their worries and their common destiny together?

    Summary

    It was a comfort to think Arthur could have been there in his last moments, even as his executioner. Now however, he was condemned to be alone, to live and die alone as many time's as the cruel hand's saw fit.

    -------

    Where Merlin discovers and tests the bounds of his immortality, abandoned and banished, and Arthur reckons with the betrayal of his oldest friend and the mistakes he made in the anger it caused.

    The two would suffer in tandem until two broken hearts try to mend together as one, with or without the permission of their owners.

    Summary

    “Galiad, fifth son of Chrockland, former Knight of Camelot, for your grievous crimes against the crown, I hereby sentence you to execution, death by beheading–”

    Galiad fell to his knees, ears ringing. He never should have tried to kill the King. It had been a stupid, reckless decision, and he could not believe he’d been so easily bribed into it.

    He had let his ego get the better of him, and now, here he was, on his knees in the throne room, fighting back tears, trying not to throw up all over the stone floor, begging for his life to be spared.

    And here’s the real kicker; he wasn’t even on trial for the attempted murder of his King. His Majesty didn’t know about that.

    No, Galiad was on trial for the crime he’d committed against King Arthur’s manservant.

    Summary

    “Merlin, what is in your hair?” Gaius asks - rather judgmentally, Merlin thinks. It’s not as though Gaius can turn into a bird, making his opinion irrelevant. Everyone’s opinions shall now be irrelevant to him unless they can turn into birds, he decides. He puts a hand to his hair and feels a leaf.

    (So this is a very canon-inaccurate sort of re-telling, with some big divergences, minus a dragon or prophecy or two)
