    Summary

    Inspired by A Warlock's Wish by vividpast but with substantial changes.

    Merlin steps though the veil instead of Lancelot, but he doesn't die. No, he just finds himself transported to a Camelot where Ygraine is queen, Uther is dead, and magic is legal and celebrated. Merlin just wants to find a way back to his own world, Balinor just wants to forget the past, Arthur just wants to marry for love, and Hunith? Hunith knows that Emrys shouldn't exist in this world, so when she catches wind that he is around, she seeks to kill him. Why must trouble always find him?

    -

    Camelot’s town had not changed. It was the very same layout, the very same buildings in the very same places. Everything was the very same. 

    Except for the magic.

    Summary

    Three years ago, in the height of the pandemic, Avalon Hospital, one of Camelot’s last pro-magic institutions, was destroyed in an explosion, sending shockwaves through the magical and non-magical communities alike and leaving hundreds dead.

    Among those lost was Merlin Emrys, Arthur Pendragon’s fiancé and best friend.

    The past three years have not been kind to a world ravaged by a magically caused illness, unrest within the magical community, and newfound laws to limit the freedom of magic users everywhere.

    No, the past three years have not been so kind.

    And this is why.

    Summary

    “Are you sure you can’t do a bit of magic?” Arthur asks. “I promise I won’t behead you for it.”

    “Very reassuring,” Merlin says. “Truly, that’s an extreme act of mercy on your part, my Lord. It’s almost enough to convince me you aren’t a dollophead.”

    “What use are you,” Arthur mutters.

    Or:

    The druids call Merlin Emrys. Arthur isn't sure why they think his hapless manservant is some sort of powerful sorcerer, but it's certainly a good way to improve Camelot's relationship with the druids. It's only a little bit of a lie, surely.

    Except it turns out that it's not a lie at all.

    Summary

    “No,” Arthur just says, and stares at the car. “You can’t be serious. Your car is falling apart.”

    Immediately, Merlin's smile disappears. Belatedly, Arthur remembers his promise to Lancelot. To be fair, being nice doesn’t constitute being killed by someone’s excuse for a vehicle. They really can’t blame Arthur for that.

    “He’s doing just fine,” Merlin says defensively. “He’s a classic, and he’s meant to be this way. Hello, by the way, nice to meet you. My name is Merlin, so glad to be travelling with you to our mutual friends’ wedding. Arse.”

    Or:

    Lancelot and Gwen are getting married on the other side of the continent. Merlin is a reckless driver with a car that shouldn't be allowed on the road, and is the single most annoying person one could ever spend five days in a car with. He's also penniless, rude, secretive, has the broadest smile Arthur has ever seen on a person, and is a piano prodigy.

    If only Arthur weren't afraid of flying.

    Summary

    The last thing Peter sees is Tony's horrified, heartbroken expression leaning over him. The guilt in his eyes is almost worse than the burning pain that's taking Peter apart piece by piece. The world starts to go dark.

    There's a flash of gold and green. For one moment, he finds himself standing amongst the Guardians and others. And then darkness again. It feels like blinking; an extended period of nothingness that ends as abruptly as it begins. One moment there’s nothing, the next there’s light.

    “Easy,” a woman says. Her words are gentle, and carry a slight accent that he can’t place. "I'm called Wonder Woman. What's your name?"
