It started with a storm. Well, no, maybe it started with the cat… Either way, Merlin's magic was out of control, and even an oblivious, magic-hating clotpole like Merlin's
gut-wrenching, unrequited crushflatmate couldn't ignore it forever. And when Uther's arch-nemesis turned up, suddenly the (metaphorical) cat was out of the bag, busily decimating the (figurative) pigeon population, and nothing would ever be the same again.

This series follows a canon AU from before Merlin and Arthur are born into their adult years where Merlin is also royalty but comes to Camelot as disguise as a servant in order to serve his destiny to protect Arthur. The first two installments (Forefathers and Fate Makers & Milestones) are pre-series. We Make it Up as We Go Along largely follows episode tags from cannon, but within this AU. Secrets Out breaks from cannon entirely. This is a great series for people who love a slow burn love story with heavy plot. Mentions of Gwen/Arthur but the central romance is between Arthur and Merlin.
Emrys has always known that it is her destiny to turn the spoiled Prince Arthur Pendragon into the greatest king Camelot has known since magic was expelled from the kingdom. But if Emrys guides Arthur to his destiny, she leads herself to her own doom. Emrys could change her fate, but the Ancient Order would require another life in her stead: Arthur's.
