    Summary

    The dagger’s edge bit into his skin and Merlin felt a single drop of blood running down his neck. His thoughts swirled and tumbled into a mess. Arthur cruelly had him pinned against the stone wall and pressed a knife at this throat. “You are an abomination.”

    Magic is darkness. Magic is evil. King Arthur cannot allow it take root in Camelot. Now magic has taken his best friend and twisted him. Merlin is a sorcerer and Arthur has never felt such betrayal. Not even destiny can stop a king’s wrath.

    Summary

    When Arthur, Gwen, and the knights return to an unfamiliar world, they are faced with an even more unfamiliar Merlin. This Merlin doesn't smile, her laugh no longer dances through the air, and her once-expressive eyes have grown cold, hardened, and distant. She's seen too much in her time spent alone, wandering the world and protecting the land where the kingdoms of Albion once stood. Merlin is tearing herself apart and has been for far too long. All Arthur wants is one chance to put the pieces back together, to say the words he should have been saying to her all along.

    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

    According to canon, Merlin is basically a demigod who has access to his powers since birth. He's also smart, resourceful, brave and determined. His control over time and his telekinesis should also trivialize just about every threat possible. Yet for all that, he has zero development until he comes to Camelot desperate for whatever life would give him.

    In this fic, all of that changes. Merlin fully embraced his power, which impacted both his life and his surroundings.

    So when he comes to Camelot Merlin still needs to figure out himself and his purpose like in canon, but he is in a totally different place both magically and mentally. Will that change everything? Or nothing?

    Summary

    Never, in the history of mankind, has the phrase, "Easy, watch," been followed by a good outcome.

    Merlin and Will are sent on a "quest" to get them out from underfoot. It doesn't exactly go to plan.

    Rating is for slightly graphic injury, but this is pretty tame, honestly.

    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

    Unlike most people he knew, Merlin could pinpoint the exact moment when his life turned to utter shit.

    Merlin Aurelius had been trained to fight in the war against magic ever since the police dragged him off his mother's dead body when he was three. When his father dies 18 years later, Merlin discovers a new problem, one that threatens everything he has worked for: That he himself has magic.

    Summary

    The first half of the first tournament of magic in Camelot in 25 years was not nearly as interesting as Arthur had hoped.

    Thus far, it hadn’t been all that different from the ones he had fought in with his knights, though with more supernatural throwing, shoving, and tripping. Arthur suppressed a pout.

    He didn’t even get to participate in this tournament, and there were few things he loathed more than sitting by and watching a fight.

    Things would probably get more interesting once Merlin entered the fray—the man brought trouble like carcasses attracted flies—and he would be competing with Albion’s other court sorcerers. Merlin made him feel a great many things, but he strongly doubted boredom would ever be one of them.

    Summary

    When all the death eaters broke out of Azkaban, they woke a certain prisoner who has been in there for a very long time. Practically as long as the prison has been built, maybe even longer. Was he put there because he committed some atrocious crime? No, nothing so dark and dreary.

    Immortality to some seems like a blessing; some people strive for it, kill for it even. But some see it as a curse of an endless life. Some people wish they were just normal human beings. Living a 100-year lifespan. Maybe even the wizarding 200-year lifespan but no more. One man wishes for death. But could never grasp it. Until he meets the master of it. Or at least the soon to be master.

    Coming into a new world with Dark Lords and young children fighting in a war, they need not fight. An old sorcerer joins the battle.

    Summary

    “It’s not what it looks like,” Arthur swore, his eyes wide. His hands flew up in a surrendering gesture, his wand dropping to the floor of the Astronomy Tower with a clatter. He winced at the noise as it echoed.

    Merlin stared at him, horrifyingly silent. Any other time, Arthur would have laughed at the fact he was still in his uniform so late past curfew, but now… Now, all Arthur could think about was how careless he’d been.

    And…how bloody ethereal Merlin looked in the moonlight.

    or

    Arthur had the best plan to get close to Merlin, and it was going great. Until...he gets caught, right when he's finally working up the courage to ask out his friend.

    Summary

    "The first thing he noticed was the light, before he even opened his eyes. The second was the air entering his body through his nose, filling him up. The third was the grass beneath him and the mist around him."

    When Arthur returns, nothing is the same. Everything he knows is gone. All but Merlin, who stands before him looking exactly the same - but at the same time, not at all.

    Summary

    Arthur reevaluates how well he knows his best friend and Court Sorcerer.

    Arthur had assumed that Merlin would be a fire mage. He wasn’t sure when exactly he had come to this conclusion. Perhaps it had stemmed from years of watching Merlin effortlessly light their campfires.

    He had thought Merlin had shied away from using fire magic in battle because it was too flashy and he was so used to hiding in the shadows. Or maybe that it was some ingrained aversion to watching people burn after witnessing countless burnings in Uther’s reign.

    Arthur had never suspected Merlin might have an affinity for anything other than fire magic.

    Summary

    Merlin leads a relatively content life - or as content as is possible under the rule of a magic-hating King. When the arrogant son of said magic-hating King starts becoming a regular at his coffee shop, Merlin is a little puzzled. When said Prince prat then proceeds to ingest a love potion on Merlin's watch that results in him having to move into the Royal Palace as Prince Arthur's (fake) boyfriend, Merlin wonders which deity he has angered. Things only get more complicated from there.

    “Welcome to The Drip and Grind, what can I get for you?"
    “The same thing I always have,” Prince Arthur says, sounding vaguely disdainful and unbearably posh. “One would think you’d remember my order by now."
    Merlin scowls. He remembers His Haughtiness’ order perfectly well, but sees no reason to inflate an already unbearably large ego.
    “You’re not my only customer,” Merlin keeps his voice coolly polite; barely.
    “You realise that’s not the proper way to address me?”
    And is that a smirk at the corner of the stupid prat’s, stupidly gorgeous mouth?
    “Apologies, your High-and-Mightiness. Now do you think you can tell me your order or must I divine it from my crystal ball?”
