    Summary

    In the midst of capturing a magical creature, Merlin is transported to a world where Camelot is home to thousands of magic-users. King Uther is nowhere to be found, Arthur is a prince again, and Queen Ygraine sits on the throne.

    Merlin plans to get back to his own reality, to his own Camelot. To do that, however, he must have access to information that is inside a shielded castle protected by powerful sorcerers. The only way in is to participate in the Apprentice Exam and be an apprentice to a magic-user included in Camelot's court. Should be easy . . . right?

    Conspiracies are afoot and Merlin just knows that, somehow, he is or will be involved. Just his luck.

    ARC 1 CONCLUDED!

    Summary

    When the King of Camelot is mortally wounded on the anniversary of the Prince's birth, a distraught and desperate Arthur is willing to try anything to save his father's life: even magic.

    For years, Merlin has ached to tell Arthur the truth; has yearned for Arthur to see him--and accept him--as he really is. Yet, something has always held him back, until now. For there is nothing that Merlin would not do for Arthur...even if if that something is revealing himself as a sorcerer in order to try to save Uther.

    But the consequences of these actions turn out to be more far-reaching than anyone expects, and it isn't long before everything goes terribly, horribly pear-shaped.

    Summary

    "It's true then?" Elyan frowned as he peered out the door into the hallway Lancelot had just exited through. Gwen bit her lip before nodding. "Damn. What would Lancelot and Merlin even argue about?"

    "Please," Gwaine rolled his eyes before flicking his hair out of his face "This has got to be some new battle strategy. Maybe Morgana is trying to throw us off with this so we won't notice when she tries to invade again." He shrugged. The others seemed to consider this.

    "That somehow makes more sense." Percival muttered. Gwen wrinkled her nose before putting down the basket with a sigh.

    "I'm telling you," She said "George heard them both yelling. It sounded very intense."

    "Maybe they were having sex. Sometimes people yell during sex." Gwaine suggested. Everyone turned to him.

    "Is that more likely than having an argument?" Leon asked dryly. Gwaine pointed his glove at him.

    "Between Lancelot and Merlin? Yes. Absolutely, you ignorant fool."

    Or

    Lancelot and Merlin get into an argument. All of Camelot loses its goddamn mind trying to figure out what's going on.

    Summary

    Gwaine scoffed as he crossed his arms over his chest, chin jutted out as he resolutely shook his head.

    "No way. We can handle ourselves without Merlin for two days...Well, some of us can." He clicked his tongue with a nod towards the other three. Leon frowned.

    "What are you trying to say?"

    "That we didn’t grow up with servants," Elyan snorted "I know it’s a scary thought but...we can actually survive a hunt without Merlin’s stew." He said. Gwaine gasped in fake shock.

    "We don’t need a servant," Arthur piped up immediately, chest puffing out in defiance "Hell, with how Merlin is, I’ve pretty much been without a servant for years!"

    "Great!" Percival said and jerked his head "Then let’s go."

    Or

    The knights go on a hunt without a servant because Merlin is sick. Obviously it goes fantastic.

    Summary

    When Merlin almost dies saving Arthur and chooses to reveal his magic to him when he wakes up, he is temporarily relieved of his duties as the king's manservant because Arthur needs time to readjust. After a month of ignoring him, Arthur asks for Merlin's help with a matter he's been stressing over, and well, when has Merlin ever been able to deny his king anything?

    -

    He raises his hands hesitantly to cup Arthur’s face before leaning in, and whispers softly for only him to hear. “Forgive me if I am crossing a line.”

    A second later he’s kissing Arthur, knowing that he will regret it in the morning, that he will probably regret it even right after. But it’s so gentle and Merlin feels so completely, utterly happy that he realizes he doesn't really mind after all. He pulls back, earlier than he would like, but he forces himself to open his eyes and look at Arthur still.

    “Did I cross a line?”

    Arthur smiles, so beautifully that it's downright ethereal. “Yes. I just regret that you beat me to it.”
