    Summary

    It has happened

    After several centuries, Morgause has finally returned to England to join Riddle in the fight against her sister and those she holds dear, determined to make sure their lives are ruined and not resting until they're either on their knees or dead. With her, she brings a spell to create an unbeatable army and finds another unfortunately familiar face among Riddle's followers: Mordred

    With Melody and Sapphira about to go to Hogwarts themselves and Harry now officially seventeen years old, Morgana and Merlin have to risk everything to keep their children safe. The one advantage that they do have is that as far as they know, Morgause doesn't know Arthur, Gwen and the knights are reborn and that Arthur can summon the gods to end this once and for all with Excalibur

    But what will they do when the worst case scenario happens and one of their own gets taken?

    Summary

    “Camelot needs you.”

    Sometimes, Merlin’s steadfastness can be admirable. At this moment, though, Arthur rather feels like throwing something. 

    “Camelot needs you too, you idiot,” Arthur snaps. 

    “I’m just a—“
     
    “If you finish that sentence, gods help me—“ Arthur points a threatening finger. “I thought I had made it quite clear. How many times do I need to repeat it to get it through your thick skull?”

    “Never said it once, actually,” mutters Merlin, rather insolently. 

    “No, fairly sure I have,” Arthur insists. “If you weren’t listening, that’s your problem.”

    Summary

    Arthur Pendragon had a bright future: He was 29 years old, the son of one of the most influential men in tech, next in line to be CEO, beloved by all who knew him for his humble & kind nature, and engaged to Merlin, the love of his life.

    Life couldn't be sweeter.

    Until he found out that beneath his father's success had been festering wounds of corruption & exploitation, going against everything Arthur believed in & believed his father to be. When Arthur exposes him for his lies, he gets cut out from the family business.

    Then the unthinkable happens, Morgana gets kidnapped, and Uther Pendragon is found murdered, gunshot wound to the head. Arthur is deemed responsible and as a result, he’s sentenced to life in prison. Just like that Arthur's bright future comes crashing down around him.

    Merlin, 28-years old, and one of the best computer hackers in Camelot, knows Arthur was wrongly accused and enlists the help of their friends to clear his name. They find that the reason behind Uther’s murder is a lot more complicated than anyone could have ever imagined.

    Aside from all that, there's the small fact that he discovers he has magic.

    Summary

    The druids of old created the Prophecy of The Once and Future King.

    And they got it wrong.

    “They what?”

    “Wrong. They misinterpreted it.” Whatshisname is excited and has no idea Merlin is about ten seconds away from having the meltdown to end all meltdowns. Possibly literally. He is really rather stupidly powerful in his old age.

    “Explain. Quickly. Less excitedly.”

     

    Or

     

    There are reasons why you shouldn’t plan your future based on crystals. Or Druids. Or Dragons. Merlin would like a do-over, thanks.

    Summary

    Taryan always felt she pulled the short sticks in life, but walking out of a dirty and unkept lake was a new low, even for her. Taryan would emerge from the water and stumble in the beloved story of “Merlin”.
    After coming to terms of transitioning worlds, Taryan begins to think about her survival. Which proves to be challenging with suspicious glances coming her way, mostly falling from the protagonist, Merlin. A secret conceiver himself, that is convinced more is at play with Taryan’s ploy of a servant girl with “amnesia”. Taryan decides she won’t limit herself to being just a “background” character and involves herself in changing the story.
    This involves saving characters' lives, starting (unexpected) relationships, and trying to lessen the burdens Merlin faces, despite his inquiries of her background. Taryan will learn not everything is predictable with neverseen characters' secrets, a reveal of a bastard son, and dark themes Taryan swears never would have seen the light of day in the story. Taryan’s choices are also no easy tasks, no thanks to a certain dragon that advises her own death and a destiny-bound warlock who might heed its advice.

    Summary

    After his car is run off a deserted highway by a hit-and-run driver, Arthur is pinned in the twisted burning wreckage. As panic sets in, he thinks his time is up until he hears the voice of his rescuer. The last thing he expected was a gangly boy named Merlin, with dark hair and blue eyes that turn gold. Merlin gets Arthur to safety then vanishes without a trace. Arthur knows he was real despite the police telling him there was no one else there with him. That he was probably hallucinating. Was Merlin a guardian angel, a ghost, or something else entirely? Arthur needs answers and he finds them in the extended care wing of the hospital. Suddenly, everything Arthur believed about life and death is in question.

    Summary

    Merlin has always felt somewhat responsible for the other serving staff in the castle, since he has been in service for longer than most of them by now. Therefore, he always sacrifices himself when less than desirable nobles come to visit the castle. He doesn't tell Arthur, though, seeing as the King already knows and turns a blind eye to everything that happens during his guests' stays in his castle's walls.

    Summary

    “Arthur.”

    “Merlin?” he said, instantly angry. He shoved himself into a sitting position, fumbling for the candle on the table by the bed, and blustered, “What on earth are you doing? It’s the middle of the night! I don’t know about you, but that’s when I sleep. Don’t you--”

    Finally managing to get the candle lit, he looked up at Merlin, fully prepared to continue his lecture. But the words died in his throat at the sight of the young servant, and he choked in the rush of panic that assaulted him. “Merlin!”
