    Summary

    Relying on pure luck and Merlin’s inexistent ability to keep a secret was not working any longer. So, Merlin figured better to be prepared and memorized a spell that could erase short-term memories. Honestly, he’d meant it as an emergency protocol, he had no idea how he’d become so careless that he needed it so often. It wasn’t his fault Arthur seemed to be paying way too much attention to him lately. Look, Merlin was just trying to survive while protecting his prince, he hadn’t done anything to deserve all this stress!

    Or the 5 times Merlin erased Arthur’s memory of his magic and the 1 time he let him remember.

    Summary

    My father is a manipulative bastard who thought he could tell me how to live my life and I would shut up and accept it,” Arthur whispered, Merlin becoming enraptured with his words. Arthur never spoke about his father. In the whole four years he had known him this was the first time. “He didn’t like what I had to say and I didn’t like what he was doing, so I left and Lance followed.” Arthur shrugged his shoulders once more letting out a deep breath. “End of story.”
    “I still think the prince has been captured by mole people,” Merlin replied after a couple of seconds had passed to break through the tense atmosphere, loving the short sharp bark of a laugh that erupted out of Arthur. That was one of his personal favourites, along with the small huff that a smirk would follow that showed off his crooked teeth. Yeah, Merlin was really that gone for his friend.

    ***
    The Pendragon lineage was cursed on the day Arthur was born.
    To save himself he walked away from his family and his royal roots.
    However his past comes back to haunt him with the world desperate to solve the biggest mystery known to man.
    Arthur, the lost prince's, curse.

    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

    A small ball hovered in her hand, shining with a silver-blue light. It floated there, getting brighter and brighter before dimming again. Wisps of cloud swirled at its center. It was pure magic.
    And the breath was stolen from Arthur’s lungs.
    “I thought you’d recognize it. He said it was warm. He said it reminded him of home.”

     

    It has been one year since Merlin's death when Arthur meets Morgana on the battlefield.
    Somehow, between all the guilt and shame, he discovers that his sister knew Merlin better than he ever did - and ever would.

    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

    Merlin, cantan los árboles. La tierra tiembla con un nombre misterioso y viejo, Emrys dicen.

    "Merlin" jadea Arthur. "¿Desde cuándo?"

    Summary

    "Meu rei, não pretendemos ficar contra o senhor. Queremos apenas poupar uma vida inocente" o rei estava prestes a dizer algo, mas ela não lhe deu chance "O menino não pode ser acusado de praticar magia, porque ele não a possui"

    Arthur olhou para Morgana, a pergunta evidente em seus olhos. Mordred tinha magia, eles a viram brilhar em seus olhos. Não havia dúvida, então o que ela estava fazendo?

    Ela apenas olhou de relance para ele, antes de ficar seu olhar no rei.

    Havia algo por trás de seus olhos, uma determinação e outra coisa... diversão?

    Ah não.

     

    Ou:
    Quando Morgana e Mordred foram pegos tentando escapar e levados para Uther, ela o defende, alegando que ele não tem magia e que ela quer mantê-lo como seu pupilo. O rei exige uma prova e Emrys teve de intervir.

    Summary

    At sixteen, Prince Merlin saw his kingdom destroyed and was forced into an engagement with King Cenred just because of his magic. Now, two years later and on the eve of his wedding, Merlin's crew takes him out on a final voyage before he's forced to give up his beloved ship and way of life forever in exchange for a life of darkness with Cenred. But it isn't long before the trip takes a turn for the worst and Merlin finds himself kidnapped yet again, this time by the unfairly hot and unbearably arrogant Prince Arthur Pendragon of Camelot, the very same kingdom with a reputation for making sorcerers’ heads roll. This should be fun...

    Summary

    Canon-era AU. With the threat from Morgana and her forces growing by the day, coupled with the legalisation of magic in Camelot still in its infancy, Arthur feels that his kingdom is floundering. He agrees to a political marriage with Merlin, the young leader of the Druids, in order to secure Camelot's future and to ally himself with the one person who might be able to defeat Morgana. A marriage of convenience soon starts to become something more, and Arthur finds himself learning things about himself and his kingdom he would never have imagined, while forging a genuine connection with someone who seems to truly understand him.

    Summary

    A series of loosely connected stories in which Arthur isn't an idiot, Merlin isn't a clumsy poor creature... Though it depends on your point of view.
    The consequences of some events knock on the door at the least opportune moments, the idea that a human's worth doesn't depend on who he was born sprouts green leaves, and readers learn things they didn't learn from the show.

    Summary

    Arthur Pendragon was not a sorcerer.

    No.

    He was something a lot worse. An Omega.

    He was a creature born of magic, made of magic and he was destined to be the other half of a sorcerer one day. Omegas are the human version of a familiar, animal familiars becoming less common as time passed due to the tell-tale signs of sorcery was being able to talk and control animals. He was a conduit for magic, he did not have any of his own, but his body craved magic as sustenance. He would weaken over time and only being exposed to it would bring back his strength. Once a month he would go into a transference state as Gaius explained it where he would be more susceptible to receive magic and strengthen it. As an omega he would be able to channel his sorcerers magic and make them stronger, he could be the difference between being able to grow a plant or to summon a whole forest. The power that was inside of him…it was a whole new league that had never been seen in Camelot before.

    Summary

    ‘What’s going on, Merlin? Why are you… me?’
    Lancelot was lying, was his first, quite absurd thought. I do not look cute when I’m confused.

    «»«»«»

    At first, it’s just an ‘inconvenience,’ and although Merlin and Lancelot can’t figure out a way to break the enchantment, at least their bond grows stronger than ever. The snag? It all somehow leads to a discussion about allowing magic in Camelot… and the stakes suddenly get very high.
