    Summary

    When Arthur goes back for his manservant in the tunnels, he discovers the secrets Merlin has been hiding and makes an unforgivable mistake. With blood on his hands, and the whole kingdom unable to meet his eye, Arthur is pushed from Camelot. Forced to be alone with his thoughts and try to deal with the consequences of his actions.

    In one final attempt to make things right, he bargains with the sidhe. Trading his prophesied return for Merlin to live once more. The sidhe accept Arthur's offer, but there's one issue they don't mention to the disgraced king. Merlin never went to Avalon. In fact, he never left Camelot at all.

    Merlin may be back - albeit minus a handful of years worth of memories - but the people of Camelot still do not trust their king, and the enemies of Camelot draw closer by the day. Will Arthur be able to face Merlin and come clean? Will Merlin ever be able to work by Arthur's side again? Or will Camelot's enemies overthrow the weak king, and destroy the last chances of Albion ever being united?

    Summary

    "Merlin looked in the man’s direction for a while. The man turned from talking to a rather greasy-haired-looking person and looked at Merlin directly. The man smiled, eyes crinkling, and waved at him.

    Merlin’s eyes widen a bit and he turned his head to see if the white-haired man was looking at someone else. Noticing no one else was looking towards the table, Merlin turned his head to face him again and waved, smiling nervously."

    Seven years at a magical school for magical students couldn't be that hard, Merlin was magical after all. Right?

    Summary

    Merlin thought he was doing the right thing. He thought telling Arthur that magic had no place in Camelot he'd be able to save his friend. When he sees the mistake he made, he leaves Camelot. Unable to hand the burden of what he had condemned his friends to. Arthur, Gwen, Gaius, and the Knights of the Round Table seek out the Druids to find out everything they can about Merlin and his magic in hopes they can find their friend and bring him home.

    (Merlin left letters behind explaining why he had to leave. A majority of the story will be centered on everyone except Merlin as they learn about him and his sacrifices)

    Takes place after Season 5 episode 5, The Disir.

    Summary

    There was only one slave in all of Camelot. One young man who was discovered to be a holder of magic, had given that specific punishment. He was the Prince's own manservant. The King was mortified and embarrassed to have been the one who gave the warlock a position so close to the throne. He elected that the man should be made into an example. One so poignant that no other warlock would dare pull a similar stunt.

    Summary

    It was a rainy autumn afternoon when Merlin drove a familiar route in his car. It was the long, isolated road that ran past Lake Avalon. Repressed memories. A gap that has never been closed. When it was already getting dark, a hitchhiker with a black hood suddenly appeared...

    Summary

    Merlin is…confused.

    He’s doing his job as a servant—not that he’s begrudging his position that much, destiny is destiny, after all—and putting up with all the things that servants are supposed to put up with.

    Summary

    They say not to put all your eggs in one basket, but Arthur only has one basket. He must somehow convince Camelot that Merlin - and, by extension, magic - deserves to be free on the actions of the warlock alone. Only, his subjects are difficult to sway, and his nobility harder. Meanwhile, he must battle his growing feelings for his manservant - and the fact that he doesn't only love Merlin.

    In which Merlin must fess up to everything he's ever done in front of all of Camelot, and he has to hope that his good deeds outweigh his evil ones. It has all come down to this.

    Summary

    Merlin has one of his funny feelings before a trip to Alined's kingdom, and as usual Arthur should have listened to him. Alined's invitation turns out to be a trap to kidnap Merlin and use him as a bargaining chip, knowing that Arthur would do anything to keep him safe.

    To try to save Merlin, Arthur pretends he doesn't really care about him, and when Alined takes him away anyway, Arthur feels terribly guilty. Being unable to bear the thought that those may be the last words Merlin ever heard from him, Arthur joins Gwaine on a risky rescue mission.

    Will he be able to save Merlin and tell him how much he really means to him?
