    Summary

    “Let’s call it… going back to being friends.”
    “Just friends?” Arthur asks, raising one skeptical eyebrow.
    “Just friends,” Merlin confirms, twisting himself around to look Arthur in the eyes. “None of this extra bullshit.”
    “Hm.” Arthur ponders for a moment, then smiles. “I can live with that.”

     
    Merlin and Arthur are friends with benefits - that is, until Merlin moves away. Unsurprisingly, neither of them deals with the change particularly well.

    Summary

    Merlin loves his forest. The gentle chirping of birds in the morning, the soft moss under his feet, and the sweet critters that inhabit the underbrush. He lives out his days, listening to the trees and playing with the animals. At least, until a small blonde child happened to stumble into his home.

    Summary

    Arthur Pendragon was simply following orders and the universe decided to smite him for that.

    Exhausted but unwilling to go back empty handed to the king, Arthur picks a fight with a druid and loses. Now he is cursed to be a wolf unless he "grows into the person destiny spoke of." Whatever that means. He has a month to figure it out, all the while hiding from his uncle who's looking to kill him with Uther none the wiser.

    Quite the predicament he's gotten himself into. The cherry on top? a dorky prince of magic insists Arthur be his pet.

    Summary

    He spends approximately ten seconds drawing a flower, slightly bigger this time, and this time he also adds a stem and some leaves, making it seem more alive, and cuter, in Merlin’s humble opinion.

    Merlin is about to lean back (he was just adding a stem to the first flower, sue him), when Arthur’s eyes open. He blinks up at Merlin, his head still resting on his crossed forearms, on the desk, and stares for a moment.

    merlin is a loser who draws flowers on people's notebooks. arthur is really into him (but only secretly)

    Summary

    Marching into Angelo Bronte's house demanding Jack back had been a mistake. To make matters worse Arthur was told to stay with Bronte while Dutch and John went to do his dirty work. Arthur didn't know why such a powerful man would be interested in the likes of himself, but all that mattered was getting Jack home to his momma. Even if the Italian mob boss wanted something more from Arthur.

    A twist on the chapter 4 mission, Angelo Bronte: A Man of Honor.

    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

    It's been a year since Merlin's been found out as a sorcerer, and then escaped just before his execution, disappearing into thin air. Arthur is left reeling and feeling empty, like he's searching for something in a state of perpetual stillness, unable to move anywhere. Arthur misses Merlin, a known sorcerer, a betrayer of the crown and the law, and his best friend. Arthur doesn't know what he's supposed to do.
    And then Merlin appears. But Arthur seems to be the only one who recognizes him. Torn between hope and dread, and questioning everything he's ever believed, Arthur falls into his future.

    The world isn't supposed to work this way. Black and white aren't supposed to blur. His father built clear rules for him to follow, easy lines to color inside of, but Merlin has gone and made a mess of it all.

    Damn Merlin.

    Summary

    Inspired by A Warlock's Wish by vividpast but with substantial changes.

    Merlin steps though the veil instead of Lancelot, but he doesn't die. No, he just finds himself transported to a Camelot where Ygraine is queen, Uther is dead, and magic is legal and celebrated. Merlin just wants to find a way back to his own world, Balinor just wants to forget the past, Arthur just wants to marry for love, and Hunith? Hunith knows that Emrys shouldn't exist in this world, so when she catches wind that he is around, she seeks to kill him. Why must trouble always find him?

    -

    Camelot’s town had not changed. It was the very same layout, the very same buildings in the very same places. Everything was the very same. 

    Except for the magic.

    Summary

    It was supposed to be a normal hunt. It was supposed to be a normal hunt.

    It was supposed to be this: they get out of the castle so Arthur can be less of a prat, the knights have that weird banter that they always do where it’s ‘we can make fun of him but if anyone else tries, you will be eviscerated,’ and Merlin gets to enjoy being in the woods because it’s nice outside and he doesn’t actually have to do that much. They only tend to hunt small things like rabbits and birds anyway.

    It was not supposed to be most of the knights having to stay behind for various reasons, including Gwaine who somehow got swept into helping Leon with a council thing.

    It was not supposed to be just him, Arthur, and three random knights.

    It was not supposed to end like this.

    Summary

    Arthur takes you on a cute little date to mini-golf. Everything goes wrong, but that's okay because you are just happy to be together.

    ----

    Arthur is holding a golf club in the air, staring at in in confusion.

    He positions it at his feet as if he were going to hit a ball, but in order for the club to touch the ground he has to lean down almost at a ninety degree angle. It looks tiny compared to Arthur's bulky hands and arms.

    "These damn things for toddlers or what?" He criticizes. But when he looks to you and sees how the golf club fits perfectly in your hands, and is the appropriate length, he curses under his breath.

    He looks over to where Alden's kiosk is, about 20 feet away and yells to the man, startling him.

    "Hey Allen!! They make these in any bigger sizes?!" Alden does not correct the man on the mistake of his name, but yells back,

    "N-no sir, it's one size fits all"

    Arthur looks down to his pathetic golf club and curses under his breath,

    "One size fits all, bunch a' horseshit"

    Summary

    "Do you love him? "

    Ygraine responds, gently but firmly. It is more a statement than a question. Arthur, her youngest child and heir to the throne, had just asked her for permission to formally court Merlin, the eldest son of the Balinor, Chief Dragonlord of Albion and Hunith, her lady-in-waiting. 

    Arthur reacts as if he just got caught sticking his hand in the cookie jar for his favorite cookie, because in a way, he has. Blushing instantly and eyes looking everywhere but his mother's face, light puffs of air coming from his mouth. Ygraine has her answer, but she will remain silent. She will not have her son believing expressions of love or other emotions are a sign of weakness, especially for men. She's going to make her son work for the approval that is already there. 

    Or:

    Queen Ygraine lives! How things could have been if Ygraine didn't die in childbirth, Uther didn't get to exercise his awesome parenting skills, and magic flourished in Camelot.
