    Summary

    Merlin's magic was found out and as such he was put to death by beheading on Uther's command- Arthur and the others, despite their efforts, could do nothing to stop it. Two years later, the magic Kingdom of Fae'Lin has risen in the area between Camelot and Cenred's land and Uther is not pleased. He wishes to have this land eradicated, but Arthur is uncertain, having lost faith in his father since Merlin's death. Arthur travels with his knights to this new land in order to set up a peace treaty before Uther's rage and hatred causes something that can't be undone, but who and what he finds there surprises him. Will he be able to survive in a land filled entirely with magic users, and what will happen when he finally meets their King and ruler- Lord Emrys?
    ******
    Takes place after Morgana turned dark but before Uther's death (and he doesn't fall ill/catatonic). Lancelot is alive, as is Elyan. Gwaine is a knight. Arthur and Gwen are in love but not together because of Uther.
    I tried to keep the language and speech sounding like olden times, but I don't think I entirely succeeded. Still. I hope you enjoy it none the less. Expect time jumps because Woo!

    Summary

    Ethereal gold eyes serenely peered at Arthur, his face looking like Merlin's usual earnest self, but there was an otherworldly quality that Arthur couldn't decipher. "I have a bleeding wound on my back, an arrow hole on my shoulder, a stab wound on my stomach. The magic I've used would have killed a normal sorcerer long ago. I shouldn't be alive. If I am human now, I think my human side will abide by that rule." He smiled ruefully, oblivious to the king's horror.

    "There is only so much I can do in a physical body, even as Emrys, but I've...always done differently than what is told." Emrys gave him a small smile - more Merlin bled through the facade, but as a result, a pained expression shadowed him, and his palms hovered over Leon's fatal wound with occasional trembles giving away his weakness.

    "Arthur, could you bring me to the lake of Avalon, once it's over? I think I'd like to be there, please."

    In which there is a reveal, and a struggle of acceptance, self-worth, and destiny. Arthur learns just who exactly his Merlin is, and the protector is now the one needing to be saved before it's too late.

    Summary

    After twelve hundred years of living without Arthur, Merlin dies a sad and old man at the hands of a rogue sorcerer, who wields a powerful blade.
    He wakes up on his cot in Gaius's chambers, twelve hundred years earlier.
    --
    "This couldn’t be real.
    He was dead. He was dead, and this was the paradise that the gods of the Old Religion had given him. Camelot, just as it had been when Arthur was alive.
    Arthur."

    Summary

    “I think I’m going to be your manservant,” Merlin announces, one day, and Arthur almost chokes on thin air.
    “No,” Arthur says, because Merlin is a god, for – someone’s sake, and Arthur doesn’t want the first noble to raise their hand for a reprimanding slap turned into a worm, or something worse.
    Merlin simply frowns, petulant. “Why? I think I’d be quite good, if I got the hang of it.”
    Arthur presses his hand over his eyes, a pounding headache in the making, and sighs.

    Or: Merlin wants to spend more time with Arthur, and thinks becoming the prince's manservant is a splendid idea. Arthur disagrees.
    Part 2 of the Chasing Spring series.

    Summary

    Uther's execution of a high priest of the Old Religion leads to the wrath of the god Emrys, and Camelot is trapped in a never-ending winter. Arthur Pendragon, unbeknownst to his father, embarks on a quest with his trusted knight Leon to free Camelot from the god's curse, braving snowstorms and bandits left and right.
    On his way, though, he meets Merlin: a mouthy boy with startling blue eyes who may be much, much more than he seems. And, as much as he may try, Arthur can't stop himself from gravitating towards him - even as he knows that Merlin hides a secret, one that may come back to bite him in the arse before long.
    A tale of quests, wyverns, winter kisses, smiting, reconciliations, and, perhaps, love.

    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.

    “For your information I spent a lot of time in a tree last night.” He says, not finding it in him to feel embarrassed.

    “A tree?!” Arthur exclaims, and Merlin finds it in him to feel embarrassed. Oh no. He’s standing by the door, and in his haze Merlin had not noticed him. His blue eyes are wide and bright and his grin is spreading across his face already. Merlin closes his eyes, dreading what he knows is coming.

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

    Summary

    An old draft of something I never posted, now being edited because it is in my head.
    Merlin is Emrys, and Emrys is lord of the druids. Merlin would rather just be Merlin, but no he is high lord of the druids. Who has time for that? Not Merlin, so he accepts help from where ever he can get it, even if it is from Mordred. Arthur trusts the boy, even knowing he is a druid.
    And Merlin is going to have to put his faith in the boy (man?) too, because Arthur wants to make peace with the druids, and their high lord Emrys.
