    Summary

    Arthur Pendragon works sixty hour weeks and is devoted to his family name, until one night Uther goes just a bit too far. Restless and confused, Arthur gets into his car and drives until he can't. It is the middle of the night in a small village in Wales, and a helpful officer directs him to a B&B for the night.

    There he finds a kindly innkeeper, his very weird historian gremlin nephew, odd people, odd situations, and even odder - himself.

    A slightly absurd and very gentle story about coming back to yourself, finding a true family, and realizing that historian gremlins are actually really hot and rather amazing, and perfect to fall in love with.

    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

    It's a known fact that soon-to-be Pirate King Arthur Pendragon wears a single blue merfolk scale as an earring. It's the only proof he has that he was saved by a merperson in the storm that killed his mother, even as his father blames Neptune for her death. Little does Arthur know, the very same merman that saved him has just waltzed onto his ship as the new cabin boy, still getting used to his new spindly legs

    Summary

    Merlin's expectation in life was to be invisible and protect Arthur (and one day become the greatest warlock in the world and help bring about a magical era of peace, but that was irrelevant)

    But all of that changed when the Queen of the prophesized Albion comes to Camelot and reveals that Merlin is the prince of their small but magically adept country. He is pulled into court politics, etiquette lessons, and a long series of revelations about how much control he truly holds over his own future.

    Now, Merlin must find the balance between his duty, his destiny, and his heart.

    Summary

    Arthur's father is the head of The Department of Magical Affairs. Long before Arthur was born Uther implemented a program to force all sorcerers to register their information with the department. When Arthur's mother died at the hands of magic, Uther used said registry to push his own oppressive agenda. When Arthur is twelve, all copies of the registry were mysteriously deleted from government servers along with the program used for information registration. Fifteen years later, Arthur gets the opportunity as a photojournalist to go in and do a piece on what the government calls "Magic Occupied Boscastle" but the citizens call "The Last Free City of Magic" in Cornwall. There, he gets to know the mysterious, unofficial leader Emrys and come to truly understand what life is like for a magical person in the UK.

    Summary

    Who is Merlin? That is a question that many people ask everyday in the walls of Camelot.

    To most people he makes sense on the outside, but when you befriend him, you learn something else. That there is something about him, like he carries like an intense weight, he seems constantly burdened and yet he brushes it off and smiles like nothing is wrong.

    Something is clearly wrong.

    And all it takes is one thing for everything to come out.

    ---

    Merlin, his Merlin, was lying limp on the floor. After performing magic. His Merlin was a sorcerer. Yet he defended Arthur, a sorcerer like Merlin should hate Arthur. Merlin will always be an anomaly to others, it didn’t matter how but to Arthur he just made sense. And now he needs to make sense again.

    Summary

    Arthur Pendragon is in his final term at Camelot University. Slated to continue onto law school and join his father's law firm, he only has one minor obstacle preventing him from finishing his final weeks at Uni with a bang: a required elective class. And his exams. And his independent research. And his father's incessant pestering. And balancing classes, his internship, and games. Turns out, there's a lot on his plate. Cue Literature Professor Merlin Emrys, who is, fortunately, like no other professor, person, Arthur's ever met.

    Warning: Arthur is 22 years old, and Merlin is 31 years old. If this age gap bothers you, kindly scroll by.

    Summary

    “I’m Arthur,” he simply says, keeping the rest under lock and key inside his heart, and you’re the most beautiful merman I’ve ever had the pleasure to see, I fear I might be falling for you without even knowing you and that’s eating me up from the inside out, take me out of this misery please.

    Merlin seems somewhat startled, but that soon changes into the most brilliant smile in all the seas, his hands finding their resting place upon Arthur’s chest. His face inching ever closer to Arthur’s, only to stop short from his lips, “Hm, so what brings you to my neck of the ocean, Arthur?”

    Summary

    Arthur hates Emrys. The vigilante has brought nothing but misery in his life ever since he appeared in Camelot.
    Merlin hates the Prince. He hates everything the man stands for. He hates all that the Pendragons have done to his people.

    Turns out they don't hate each other that much after all.

    Alternatively: Where Merlin has a backbone, Uther gets what he deserves, Morgana is awesome and Arthur finally has *character development*

    Summary

    Morgana tries to rid herself of Emrys once and for all, her mode of operation? A substance made of the mushroom commonly known as Tippers Bane. Taken alone it is harmless, but taken within an alcoholic beverage, such as mead, it is deadly. With her victory over Emrys almost complete, Morgana thinks she will finally be rid of her mortal foe, but what happens if a supposedly unaware knight drinks the poisoned mead instead of Morgana’s intended target? And what happens when Merlin learns he was the intended mark, and that an innocent person took his place and may pay the price.

    Summary

    When he turned around to offer an apple to Arthur, the prince had a strange look in his eye. Sad and almost steely, but naive all the same.
    “What? Is there something wrong with apples, sire?”
    “I’m not going back,” Arthur declared. “I’m going to stay here with you.”
    Merlin stared at him.
    He stared back.
    Merlin started laughing.
    Arthur clenched his fists. “It’s not funny!”
    Was he even hearing himself? “You…want to stay with…with me?”
    Oh, this was hilarious.
    If he had a grave, Uther Pendragon would be rolling in it.

    OR

    In his few thousand years of living, Merlin never thought he would run into Uther Pendragon's child in the woods or that said child would want to live with him.
    What could go wrong?

    Summary

    “So,” Kay said, “royal life seems to be treating you well.”

    Arthur laughed. “Yeah, well, it’s the best money can buy so can’t complain.”

    Kay snorted. “You can’t?”

    Arthur’s smile felt ridged. He forced a laugh, coughing into his fist, the uncomfortable feeling just at the edge of his mind. “Of course not. This is all - all I could have asked for.”

    Summary

    "Look at him, Merlin," Arthur whispered, his voice full of raw emotion. "He's beautiful."
    Merlin rested his head on Arthur's shoulder. "He is, isn't he?" He reached down, taking a lock of the baby's hair between his fingers, soft as down and the color of dandelions in springtime.
