    Summary

    Everyone knows it’s a manservant’s duty to look after his master’s manhood. Everyone except Merlin that is. Which makes for a very awkward and embarrassing series of attempts, and an angry, sexually frustrated prince... Well, you know what they say, practice makes perfect!

    “I can’t do it! I can’t work for that arrogant prat! He is impossible! You won’t believe what he just asked me to do!” He shook his head fiercely, his cheeks heating up again.
    “What did he ask?” Gaius asked.
    Merlin made an embarrassed squeaky groan. He could feel his face burning. “He asked me to…” He stopped pacing and took a deep breath. “Rub his sword!”
    Gaius lifted one eyebrow, it arched perfectly over his right eye. “Yes, you have to look after his weapons-”
    “No, Gaius, not that sword, not the one he fights with…” Merlin put his hands in his hair, tugging it in frustration. “His… morning… glory…” He gestured at his own crotch.
    “Oh!” Gaius waved a hand in understanding. “Yes. Of course he did.”
    “What do you mean, of course he did?” Merlin’s voice sounded a little shrill now.
    “That’s one of a manservant’s duties,” Gaius explained.

    Summary

    The first time Arthur notices that Merlin disappears at the most inconvenient of times is after he miraculously survives the bite of the Questing Beast. He might've forgotten all about it if it didn't keep happening; if it didn't leave him with a worrying obsession over what his servant is up to—only out of concern, of course. It's when they're searching for Morgana that Arthur finally gets a chance to follow, though he might end up finding much more than he bargained for.

    He's not sure he's complaining, though.

    Summary

    Merlin's greatest secret has been exposed to the man he loves more than life. So, he runs.

    Arthur's best friend, his everything, is a sorcerer. He stews, stews, and then follows the boy he'd trade an entire kingdom to protect.

    Because they're in each other's veins and not even magic can change what they are and who they belong to.

    Summary

    “He’s definitely interested in men?”

    “Look at that mouth, it would be a crime if he wasn’t interested in men.”

    “Didn’t he have a crush on Morgana though?”

    “Everyone had a crush on Morgana!”

    “She was evil”

    “But hot”

    “Gentleman I can assure you, blue eyes is most definitely interested in men.”

    “How are you so sure Gwaine?”

    “Had the pleasure of his company for a handful of nights already.”

    “That should put Gwaine out of the running.”

    “Can’t take the competition Lance?”

    “Its got to be up to him”

    “Agreed”

    “Um, how exactly are we going to find out who he’d pick?”

    Summary

    Arthur could see his father glaring down - face red and eyes narrowed as he looked at Merlin with clear distaste.

    "Once this over, sorcerer...I’ll burn you."

    "You’ve already tried that," Merlin’s voice answered and Arthur had to bite his fist to keep from making any noise. “You need to accept you can’t kill me… Hand me that blanket, please.”

    “I’m sure there must be some method… Beheading?”

    “No, we tried that.”

    “Hanging?”

    “I just sort of... Swung there, remember?”

    There was another pause.

    “I should have made you keep that dragon below the castle so I could feed you to it.”

    “Kilgharrah? He won’t eat me, but if you want to torture me than making me listen to his nonsense for an hour might do it.” Merlin said and there was a soft sigh from the other end of the room. “I’m glad you agreed to help me though. Usually I have to do the grunt work of saving Arthur myself.”

    “I can’t wait to kill you.” 

    Or

    Uther finds out about Merlin’s magic, but can’t seem to kill him. Merlin is just trying to protect Arthur. They become a begrudgingly effective duo. Arthur doesn't understand why they think he isn't noticing this.

    Summary

    Merlin isn’t anything special. Not much of a looker… but there’s those eyes. And those cheekbones. He wasn't particularly funny or kind; in fact, it was quite the opposite. He insulted Arthur, called him a prat. (And it doesn't matter that Arthur was the one to instigate that; nope, not at all.)

     

    Arthur Pendragon hits rock bottom when he wakes up in the hospital after driving drunk. There he meets Merlin, his hospital roommate who uses insults generously, who won't leave Arthur's thoughts no matter what. Through a chance meeting (and a bit of persistence) they meet again, and again, and something starts to blossom between them that makes Arthur dizzy with hope. But if Merlin ever finds out the true nature of the events that happened the night before they met, would he ever look at Arthur the same? Would it ruin everything?

    Summary

    While Arthur and the knights are off doing knightly things, Merlin gets into a spot of bother - as usual - with some roaming bandits, and it's up to his friends to take care of him - and of his attackers (although perhaps in a slightly different manner).
