    Summary

    Merlin is Arthur's lover, his manservant, his knight, the grain of sand that will make Camelot into a shining pearl. But the one thing he cannot be is a sorcerer. After Merlin confesses, Arthur is determined to find a way to remove Merlin's magic, to remove the corruption without killing him, and before it can destroy his soul. But magic can only be fought with magic. Without Merlin's powers, Camelot will be defenseless against the next magical attack. And that's not all Arthur has to worry about, because there are visitors to the court, alliances and enemies, and a princess he may have no choice but to marry. To set things right, Arthur will have to confront his father’s lies and embrace the magic he was raised to fear.

    Gwen has kept her faith in secret even as she listened to Morgana's muttered nightmares and watched Merlin from afar. But when Morgana sees terrifying visions of Camelot’s destruction, the truth comes out for them both, bringing them together even as it tears them apart.

    Through heartache and hard choices, all four of them must join forces to save Albion and its magic from the terrifying Sidhe and an equally terrifying Uther.

    Summary

    Arthur is Regent and Camelot is on the brink of change. A training session with the knights leads to some unexpected attentions for Merlin. But those attentions are not unwelcome, and a greater plan lies behind them. (The whole thing is Arthur's fault, of course.)

    Summary

    Nothing interesting ever happens in Arthur's life -- until the day he follows a white kitten through a looking-glass and finds himself in the land of Camelot, a realm of unusual nonsense. There he takes up a quest to slay the terrible Jabberwock, to overthrow the Red King Uther and restore the exiled Princess Morgana to her throne. But to do it all, he'll need the help of a madman named Emrys and his famously delicious tarts... and a Dragon-Cat or two.

    Summary

    It's hard enough being a powerful sorcerer in Camelot, but being in love with the Crown Prince has its downsides. More than anything else, Merlin wants to earn Arthur's respect, yet without his magic he is nothing. But if he can learn to fight with a sword, if Arthur will teach him to be a knight, Merlin is certain that he can have it all. He can keep Arthur safe and earn his respect and his love. He won't have to lie to Arthur about his magic if he doesn't have to use it.

    But life in Camelot is a long gauntlet to run, with new threats at every turn. War looms on the horizon. And in the balance between love and duty, Merlin may have to make the hardest choice of all.

    Summary

    Sometimes Merlin's life feels like someone's idea of a hilarious joke. A run in with a fertility god and the wrong sort of berries does not improve his situation. But if he can bring himself to trust Arthur, maybe everything will work out after all.

    For prompt#8.

    Summary

    To lose a manservant once may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose him twice looks like carelessness. When Merlin vanishes in the mines of Kemeray, Arthur's search for him uncovers decades of secrets and betrayals. But the sudden appearance of a baby white dragon bodes well for Albion, for Merlin and Arthur, and for the land that they will build together.

    Summary

    Merlin will do anything to save Camelot. Arthur will do anything to bring him back. For both, they will need ritual, and many hands.

    All magic is transitive.

    Summary

    Merlin was a sincere little puzzle-box, and Arthur wanted nothing more than to take him apart, and perhaps even see how best to put him back together. He didn't realize that Merlin might be the key to his own heart.

    An anti-reveal/pre-reveal fic. There is also fun with an enchanted boar, pre-Round Table Knights, and more fallout from The Curse of Cornelius Sigan. Oh, and smut. Lots of smut.

    Summary

    Set a few weeks after the events of "The Curse of Cornelius Sigan". If only Merlin had never slipped on the stairs. He would have gone to Mercia with Arthur and never realized he was in love. Desperate, hopeless love.

    Summary

    The one where Arthur and Merlin travel to Medieval Persia. What do you do after you've fulfilled your destiny? Merlin doesn't know, but he tries to find out despite a cranky High King, a powerful Shah and his Queen, and his own untameable magic.

    Summary

    Merlin should never have let Arthur choose his costume. "You're a fox," Arthur smirked. "You'll be the envy of all the other foxes."

    Summary

    No mortal has ever survived their touch. Arthur knows that if he asks how Merlin survived the Dorocha, Merlin will smile that cheeky grin that doesn't quite reach his eyes. Missing scene/Arthur study for 'The Darkest Hour'.
