    Summary

    In the aftermath of a losing battle against Morgana, Merlin exhausts his magic to save Arthur's life, putting his own life at risk in the process. When Arthur wakes up, he finds his manservant completely unresponsive and panics. They're stranded alone in the middle of an unfamiliar forest with barely any supplies, and Arthur must figure out how to keep Merlin alive.

    But that's not all; Morgana and the beast she conjured are still out there, patiently waiting for the chance to strike again.

    Summary

    The lake would still be there, staring back at him.

    Taunting him for remembering, for being alive.

    "I hope you’re resting, Arthur. I hope you’re not waiting too," he spoke to the darkness, his fingers gripping at the counter as his eyes closed.

    Summary

    He could see the shallow rise and fall of his chest, the feverish flickering of his closed eyes, the pain that tensed his delicate features, the sweat in his golden hair. He frowned, wondering how he had come there, what had happened to him, what was his name? Where had he come from?

    Summary

    Arthur was born of magic. Scared and unsure of how to use his power and a father who hates all that is magic, will he and his new friend Merlin be able to learn and co-exist in a world that was made of magic?
    Who will magic call her own in the end?

    Excerpt:
    “Can magic corrupt a person?” Arthur hated how weak he sounded, but it is truly something he didn’t understand and he wanted to know the truth.
    “Is a sword evil or good?” Merlin countered the question slightly. He knows that Arthur needs to see that magic is neutral that it is the wielder who manipulates it.
    “Neither.” Arthur gave Merlin an unsure look.

    Summary

    [One hunting trip. That’s all Arthur wanted. One trip that didn’t involve dangerous magical creatures or bandits or other non-traditional hindrances. For once he would like for his biggest problems to be a damp sleeping bag.
    But no, it could never be that easy. Arthur’s camp was long forgotten as he dangled from the claws of the dragon. He’d woken up to see a dark figure standing over him and the next thing he knew he was dangling hundreds of meters in the air with a pounding headache.]
    Or, Merlin is a dragonlord, the son of the dragonlord Balinor who rules over the dragons in the North. Arthur is the prince Merlin is instructed to kidnap. Balinor is the exasperated father and general who just wanted to legalize magic but accidentally set his son up with the child and heir of his greatest enemy.
    Whoops.

    Summary

    “Alright… Can you show me?” he asked, motioning towards Mordred.

    Mordred eyed him warily for a moment. He looked like he was ready to bolt. Luckily, Merlin had plenty experience with runners. In the end, he let out a sigh and carefully lifted up his shirt. Merlin quickly tugged the curtains around the patient bed closed even tighter to assure no one could peak in at him.

    When he turned back around, he couldn’t stop the wince.

    “Oh, Mordred,” he sighed, “who did this to you?”

    Or

    Mordred has been making himself present at Merlin's emergency centre more and more frequently. Merlin's beginning to suspect there's something more going on Mordred's not telling him.

    Summary

    “I am… sorry, Merlin. This was not written in the Prophecy, it should not have happened.”

    “What? You, smoking me half to death, like a freshly caught salmon?”

    “Yes, that… Amongst other things.”

     

    -in which the S01E3 "Le morte Artur", ends quite differently and yet exactly the same.

    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

    “I’m fine Merlin, stop being such a worry wart. The meeting went fine.” Forcing a smile, he faces Merlin, not showing his face.

    Merlin slowly walks up to him.

    “Chin up”, tilting the blonde’s face up.

    Merlin sees what he really looks like now.

    “Oh Arthur”, is all he can say. His glassy eyes, the streaks going down his face, the puffy red eyes.

    “Come on, what was it?”, the taller boy asks as Arthur finally looks up at him.

    It was at that moment he breaks.

    *In which Arthur breaks down in front of Merlin and Merlin comforts the crying mess😁👍
