    Summary

    Written for this wonderful prompt from brunettepet for the November “Snuggling” Challenge over on merlin_writers:

    Merlin and Arthur have to participate in a team building retreat. As they are the only two of their co-workers that work on their own, they are forced to become a team. That means doing everything together: setting up their campsite, fishing for dinner, cooking, cleaning and sharing a tent. They're both rubbish at everything and bitch and moan over how stupid the whole exercise is (even though they're obviously bonding just like their bosses want). Temperatures drop below freezing and their sleeping bags aren't keeping them warm. Cue zipping their bags together and sharing body heat to get through the weekend. Suddenly this stupid exercise isn't such a trial after all!

    Summary

    Merlin's dreams have always fuelled his art, but they've always been abstract and removed from reality. Soon after he meets Gwaine, he starts to see vivid images of a past full of death and magic and love for a King who was ripped from him. Things only escalate further when he spends a weekend in the country with Gwaine and meets his group of friends, which includes aristocrat and It Boy, Arthur Pendragon. Merlin soon realises that no matter how hard you try, one thing is certain, you can't fuck with destiny.

    Summary

    A Modern day Merlin AU set at the University of St Andrews, featuring teetotal kickboxers, secret wizards, magnificent bodyguards of various genders, irate fairies, imprisoned dragons, crumbling gothic architecture, arrogant princes, adorable engineering students, stolen gold, magical doorways, attempted assassination, drunken students, shaving foam fights, embarrassing mornings after, The Hammer Dance, duty, responsibility, friendship and true love...

    This story was inspired by the thought of Prince William of Wales (and indeed the current Max von Hapsburg) studying at the University of St Andrews; it is also, as the title suggests, at least a little inspired by the operetta 'The Student Prince'.

    Grateful thanks to Lamardeuse and DarkEmeralds for Beta and cheerleading!

    Summary

    “Oi!” Merlin shouts. “People are trying to study in here. Piss off somewhere else!”

    “What did you say, spellbegger?” he calls back, tone arrogant and haughty like just about every other Knight on Campus. “Come down here and say that to my face.”

     

    Or the Sky High AU where Knights and Magic Users attend University to learn how to fight evil magic and Merlin and Arthur do not get along. Until they do.
