    Summary

    “Merlin.” Arthur’s voice is—well, still tinged with amusement, but ever so slightly more serious, more urgent, like he’s having to constrain himself to stay in the realm of lighthearted teasing. “Really, tell me.”

    Merlin’s heart is beating a little quicker. He can feel the same war within himself that he hears in Arthur’s voice, a possibility swimming to the surface that he could—they could—take this out of the realm of lighthearted teasing. If they so choose.

    Or they could just keep going, laugh it off; that’s still an option, and if they do it now it would be fine. They’d move on, take the next bend in conversational road, easy. If that’s what they want.

    It’s not what Merlin wants.

    Summary

    Modern AU. Arthur and Morgana are Metropolitan police officers drawn into a strange case involving robbery of ancient artifacts. Merlin is a graduate student at Imperial College studying the healing plants of Ancient Britain under Gaius – or at least that's what he tells everyone. Soon they, along with Gwen, Lancelot and Uther, will be facing a battle for the future of the country. Can they defend the realm from those who would seek to destroy it?

    Written for Merlin Big Bang, 2009.

    Summary

    The Camelot Library and Archive of Arcane and Magical Artifacts' board has a new director and a new member. Merlin, the head librarian, is unimpressed by the flagrant nepotism. He is also unimpressed by the new board member's arrogance, looks, and attitude. Especially his looks. Especially unimpressed! He isn't affected at all. Nope. Not one bit.

    When the new director asks Merlin and Arthur to track down a (possibly cursed) legendary dagger, neither looks forward to working together. But amidst death omens, Druid rituals, and global conspiracies, the reluctant colleagues are drawn together by a force beyond their control. It could be Morgana, or it could be destiny.

     

    If collection development was this exciting or sexy, we'd have a lot more people in LIS.

    Summary

    It is the first time that Merlin has heard Arthur’s name spoken aloud since he died. He shuts his eyes. “How can this be it?”

    “It hasn’t ended,” Gaius says. He clasps Merlin’s hands. “Not yet.”

    (After Arthur’s death, Merlin lives a life. A very long life, indeed.)

    Summary

    Merlin had gone through his entire life thinking that he was invisible, but then his grandfather showed up and told him he was a prince.

    That would've been enough, really, but getting 'Prince Lessons' from Arthur Pendragon, Prince of Wales, was a bit too much for Merlin to handle.
