    Summary

    At the tender age of six, Merlin comes into his Dragonlord powers, much to Hunith's fear. Unwilling to risk her child becoming enslaved to Cenred, she sends him to live with a group of Druids in Camelot. There his magic is able to flourish, and he is able to grow into his destiny.

    But everything changes 22 years later when Merlin and his friends are captured by a Camelot patrol, led by none other than the Crown Prince himself.

    Summary

    "Arthur prided himself on being a good brother.

    Ok, maybe ‘good’ was a strong word, but he cared for the harpy he called his sister.

    That’s why, when Morgana came to him one night, terrified after a particularly bad nightmare, he held her and (though he will forever deny it) sang to her until she fell asleep.
    It’s also why when Morgana confided in him and Gwen about her magic, he and his closest knights of Leon and Elyan swore to protect her secret until their dying breaths- or at least until Arthur was king.
    When she came to Arthur about a blooming relationship with Leon, he gave his blessing in Uther’s stead and helped defend against ogling princes and nobles who tried to earn her hand.
    It’s why when she came to him and begged for his help to escape to the druids, he began packing before the conversation was over.
    It’s also why that he was currently riding towards said druids, in the sodding rain, a year later under the guise of going on a hunting trip with Elyan, and Leon.

    "

    Summary

    In another life, Arthur might’ve hesitated. In another life, the fear—actual, real fear—in the eyes of the man who he has once considered his father might’ve stalled his hand. But where his mother’s pleas to not let this knowledge change him might’ve made him hesitate, the sheer betrayal burning in Merlin’s eyes after Arthur was forced to reveal his secrets wrenches any hesitation right out of him.


    After Arthur found out about Merlin's magic, things are still tense between them. It's the worst possible time for the Witchfinder to arrive at court, but for all his worries, Arthur still could've never foreseen just how horribly it would go. He could've never foreseen all the things it would set in motion, and while there's the silver lining of how it brings him and Morgana closer, the chances of ever overcoming his guilt, of ever salvaging his and Merlin's relationship, seem almost non-existent. Almost.

    Summary

    Modern Mergana AU. Merlin is the new admin assistant in the corporate office of Pendragon Enterprises, Morgana is a junior exec in marketing, and Arthur...well, Arthur's just technologically inept. Merlin and Morgana initially bond over making fun of Arthur, but soon it becomes something more than that...

    Or: In which Morgana and Merlin drink a ridiculous amount of bad office coffee, Morgana fights the patriarchy, Arthur is oblivious (or is he?), and the author plays around with form and structure.

    T for themes/implied themes, just to be safe (frankly because Gwaine is, well, Gwaine). No slash, no smut, no profanity.

    Summary

    Bereft of the emotions that should have come at the implications of the sentence, Uther's tone is stoic as if his own son is a common prisoner. “You are to leave Camelot by nightfall. If we find you have returned to the grounds of this kingdom we will have no choice but to carry out your original sentence in the highest order.”

    Exiled and disinherited? Brilliant.


    An AU where Uther, under the influence of Troll!Catrina and Goblin!Gaius legitimately disinherits Arthur and he must deal with the consequences thereof in an attempt to reclaim Camelot.

    Summary

    In the year 2082, thirty Sorcerers who called themselves “The Pure” took over England in a violent coup, established a magical supremacy, and ruled until Uther Pendragon and his underground forces defeated them. Uther became dictator, taking charge of the country in its State of Emergency. All sorcerers tied to The Pure were publicly executed. Sorcery was declared illegal. Uther's peacekeeping Patronus force crushes rebellions. All who are suspected of practicing magic disappear or are executed. England grows increasingly restless under Uther Pendragon. Laws on sorcery have begun to change in other countries, and civil unrest stirs again in England herself.

    In this changing political landscape, Uther Pendragon’s son Arthur finds himself at University, caught between his father’s expectations and his own growing unease about his father’s policies and persecution of magic. His friend and classmate from childhood, Merlin Astur, has kept his secret as long as he's been alive. In the face of a changing world, threats to his closest friends, and an ancient Druid legend, he struggles to keep his magic hidden while protecting those dear to him.

    Summary

    Will had told Madoc not to mess with that crumbling magic book. Madoc had turned his DEFCON-one-grade pleading eyes on Will, though, and Will, predictably, had caved immediately.

    Now, of course, they were apparently stuck in Ancient Wales. Fantastic. Will kind of liked that he could throw his phone out with impunity, but Madoc's grumbling wasn't very pleasant, especially considering it was Madoc's fault they were here in the first place, like.

    Will could also definitely do without the Arthur-lookalike ranting about how magic was evil and corrupted the soul and all. This Arthur was definitely more annoying than the one Will knew, that much was certain.

    Summary

    The dragon leaned forward. "Your destiny is to protect Uther Pendragon's heir, the one who will be the Once and Future King and unite all of Albion."

    Merlin blinked. "But . . . Uther doesn't have an heir."

    . . .

    In many Arthurian texts, Arthur is raised as a peasant by Sir Ector with no knowledge of his royal lineage. Let's bring that back, shall we?

    Summary

    Arthur had always believed, the biggest change Camelot would ever go through, would be the day of his coronation.
    Truth is, it wasn't.
    The biggest change that Camelot ever underwent, came through a bumbling farmboy, who insulted the crown prince himself and somehow ended up stumbling into the hearts of the entire kingdom.

    -Set in season 1, open ended, because honestly, we could go on forever.
    - Based on a tumblr prompt.

    Summary

    The one thing Prince Arthur has always looked for, he’s never found. Pushed to the limits under the heavy weight of King Uther’s expectations, he breaks and does the only thing he can think of. He runs.

    Adrift, lost and alone, he finds home in the guise of two nosy neighbours. But in the face of impossible odds will he be able to hold onto it when King Uther threatens everything he’s come to hold dear?

    Summary

    Excerpt: "“Don’t be ridiculous. I could’ve killed you. It’s the least I can do. Please,” he added as an afterthought, his eyes begging Merlin. A small crowd had gathered and people were starting to murmur. The last thing Arthur needed was the press declaring that Uther Pendragon’s son had tried to kill a sorcerer with his car. But most important of all, Arthur couldn’t let him go. Even after all those years, he still couldn’t let him go."

    Summary: It's been almost ten years since Arthur shattered Merlin's heart. He's regretted it everyday since. But with Merlin's career as Nimueh's future successor and Arthur's marriage to Elena, he'd given up hope that there could ever be anything between them again. By chance, he hits Merlin with his car. Is this the second chance he'd given up on? Or is this going to end up in flames? (Spolier: it does get a little flame-y towards the end, but you'll see. Heh heh.)

    Note: I have written the entire story which is currently at 8 chapters and a little over 25,000 words. I would never trust myself to post something unfinished lol.

    Summary

    Arthur hadn’t meant to, not really, but sometimes hearts were faster.
    He hadn’t meant for Merlin to hear the words whispered against the sleep-warm skin of his neck.

    Summary

    “Arthur, while your efforts to avoid siring bastards are…noble, I need you to be more discreet about your relationship with your manservant,” Uther said from atop his throne, looking like he would rather be doing anything but have this conversation.

    “But Morgana and Gwen—"

    Uther held up a hand.
    “You know as well as I do that Morgana has a…wild streak, and if practicing her kisses with her maidservant satisfies that it is the least damaging option for the kingdom. At least for now.”

    Uther plowed on. “In your case, however, we must be seeking out alliances to be strengthened. We will not marry you off quite yet, but it improves relations if visiting kings and lords think their daughters have a chance at becoming queen. And that cannot happen with you constantly pawing at and fawning over your manservant!” Uther shouted, his face red from either anger or embarrassment at having to have this talk with his son.

    -Arthur sees Morgana's relationship with Gwen and assumes that is how nobles are supposed to interact with their personal servants. Uther has a talk with him about maintaining appearances. Cute, happy fluff

    Summary

    Merlin defeated the creature easily. He turned away from his fallen foe and back to the boulder blockade he'd trapped Arthur behind. Too late, Merlin saw the king had found his own way out.
    Arthur didn't look angry. He didn't even seem surprised. Just hurt. Merlin froze when he realised Arthur was crying. The king hadn't seemed to notice it, his eyes lost and face void of emotion, but tear tracks lined Arthur's cheeks. Arthur didn't cry. It was a rule the king rarely disobeyed. "No man is worth your tears."
    Arthur discovers Merlin's magic. Now everyone he loves has betrayed him. He starts to blame himself and shut everyone out. He throws himself into being king. Meanwhile, Merlin repents for his mistakes and learns about Arthur's past. What is Arthur hiding? Can Merlin win back Arthur's trust?

    Summary

    Something is wrong with the lake. It’s a long accepted fact among local residents that something about it is not normal. It looks normal, a picturesque body of water by the road with a little island and some old ruins rising up from the centre. The bloke the council sent for the environmental survey said it was normal. Everything around it is normal. But the locals know it’s not.

    Merlin and Arthur are back together, so shouldn't they have a happily ever after? Not exactly. Merlin is dealing with the shock and guilt of having Arthur back after centuries of waiting while Arthur is struggling to adjust to the 21st century. Plus there's that whole "Albion's need is greatest" thing to deal with and Merlin really needs to get round to telling his boyfriend about everything he missed while he was busy getting knocked out or enchanted. They could really use some help. Lucky for them it's on it's way.

    Sequel to Dear Camelot
    Can be read as standalone, but there will be some direct references to that work in here.

    Summary

    Merlin had always considered his place in the country to be plentiful. He never once questioned his little home and sheltered life until Arthur Pendragon arrived.

    Or the one where Merlin’s family run a B&B in Wales where Uther has sent Arthur and Morgana to stay for the summer. Merlin misinterprets things and Arthur falls in a pond.

    Summary

    The people of Camelot suddenly start acting more lovesick than usual towards Arthur. When Merlin encounters the creature behind it all, the last thing he expects is for his dreams to become inextricably linked to Arthur’s.

    A canon AU in which a pining Merlin is cursed to see Arthur’s dreams every night, Gaius is of no help whatsoever, and Kilgharrah thinks it’s all rather hilarious. Little do any of them know, this minor inconvenience (though neither Merlin or Arthur would call it that) sparks a series of events far more momentous than anyone was expecting.

    Summary

    So Arthur takes the pieces Uther is willing to give, fancy car and too much money and a blind eye when it comes to Merlin, and turns them against him. Takes them and races them down rain-wet streets, the engine humming beneath them, Merlin’s hand touching, always reaching out.
