    Summary

    He grips the reigns in clenched fists, trying to stay mounted as his horse wildly dashes through the snow and underbrush, dodging trees in its panic to flee the beast that had frightened it. Merlin can hear the knights following on their horses, hoof beats pounding into the snow. He tries ineffectively to stop his frightened mare, but it is of no use, she keeps chase deeper into the forest.

    “Merlin!”

    He peers over his shoulder to see Arthur close behind, chasing the shrieking animal, which upon further inspection, Merlin realizes is another boar, this one overgrown and fiercesome. It’s tusks  like daggers, the length of a man’s forearm, and razor sharp. With wide eyes he meets  Arthur’s, which are staring  back at him with poorly concealed worry.

    Summary

    The world was strange. There was a time where almost every other person had some sort of magical ability. Whether it was making toys hover through the air or helping bathwater to stay warm longer. But some had abilities that scared those without. Their vibrant colored hair showed the extent of their powers. While most people would have a few streaks here and there, or color that was only at their nape, it was common knowledge that they held some innate skill with magic. There were many who didn’t know what their ability was, but they held a colored streak that would fade as they grew older. It tended to manifest in many in their adolescence; their magical abilities. If they studied to try to figure out what their ability was, if they didn’t know, then their hair would brighten the closer they got to figuring it out. Once their color settled, their eyes would glow a brilliant gold color when they applied their magic. It was breathtaking to behold.

    "Identity fraud?"
    "Uh...yes?"
    Gwaine grinned. "I'm in."

    ---

    Instead of Lancelot, Gwaine shows up and kills the griffin. Not wanting to mess with nobles, he lies about his heritage to avoid getting knighted.
    Merlin still doesn't see a problem.

    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

    Merlin's always been the kindest among them, barely able to stand the sight of a dead rabbit. He despised violence and loathed hunting. And flinched at the sound of clanging metal.

    But when a sorcerer snatches the king and his knights from their bedchambers one calm night, and forces them all to watch him as he rampaged everything and everyone in his way as he searched of them, well kept secrets come spilling out; leaving them to wonder just how well they knew who Merlin was.

    If he was the same person who smiled as bright as the sun and sung to himself and made flower crowns. The person they'd known, and adored, and some had even grown to love. Or if he was someone else entirely.
