    Summary

    Merlin was told Arthur would rise again when Albion needed him the most, but when he does, it is not only for his duty with the promised land, but to protect the person he cares about most in the world.

    Summary

    After the Triwizard Tournament last year and everything else that came along with it at the very end of the year, it is now utterly and completely certain that the lives of Harry, his family and friends have been completely turned upside-down and will never be the same again

    With Riddle officially working together with both Barty Crouch Junior and Morgause, things are growing more dangerous with every day that passes as they try to find their way to get Riddle his body back and get to Harry to cause Merlin and Morgana as much pain as they can

    Thankfully, things aren't all bad as Arthur, Gwen and the knights of the round table are officially back in the game as well. After a summer of craziness as they get used to living together again, they immediately get to work to protect as many people as they can from the evil actions of Morgause and Riddle

    With Dumbledore about to lose everything, surely Harry and his friends can have even a slightly more peaceful year, even with O.W.Ls around the corner, right?

    Summary

    Merlin was tired. So tired. With every day that passed, his shoulders seemed to slump more and more, and exhaustion sunk into his bones. And still he waited for the day Arthur would return. He'd waited for so long. His hope had died long ago.
    Merlin doesn't even know if he cares anymore. It's been too long. And it seems like the end is coming soon anyways, whether he wants it too or not. The once steady balance of magic is becoming precarious, and Merlin doesn't know if he can fix it. Maybe he shouldn't even bother. It's not like he believes the world to be worth saving, not after what its done to him.
    Or, what I imagine season 6 of the show would be like if Arthur came back and everyone was less emotionally constipated.

    Summary

    Arthur is standing in the doorway, blocking the sun. This makes him look like a messenger from heaven – rays of light forming a halo around his head, a beaming smile as bright as the light of the new day. My knight in shining armor, muses Merlin inwardly and bites his tongue. He should not stoop to cheesy comments even inside his head, for it’s not helping the kind of feeling Merlin has been developing to the Once and Future King throughout the centuries.

    Summary

    ...Merlin grits his teeth. He hates his destiny at the moment. After all he’s been through he’s now deprived of the only little refreshment he can get, of his little moment of weakness in the imaginary arms of an imaginary Arthur, who would finally accept him in all the ways he’s ever dreamed of.

    Instead he’s stuck with a sneering prat, who has a memory loss and an obvious desire to make Merlin’s life a living hell. He could live with it as a minor discomfort for a couple of days, but after the sneering idiot implied he could be the reborn Arthur, all Merlin wants to do is to throw something. A tantrum, for a start...

    Summary

    Knowing he couldn’t avoid it, knowing he would have to face the world even if he didn't particularly want to that day, he sat up groggily, wiping the dried drool on his face before reluctantly pushing away his covers and getting out of bed. 

    He looked out the window and nearly groaned once more. 

    It was snowing outside. 

    And as much as he wanted to feel joyful, excited about this–his little village hardly ever got any snow–he couldn't find the energy to feel anything besides sadness, loneliness, hopelessness. 

    Arthur loved the snow. 

    Or:

    It's been 1500 years since Arthur's death and Merlin's not exactly in the best of moods, especially with the holiday cheer around him. But, perhaps this might be the day his special someone finally returns.

    Summary

    I cannot die.

     

    It isn't as though I haven't tried. I would have sacrificed myself a thousand times over for my clotpole of a King, though he was too noble to allow it. In the years since Arthur died, I've tried many times to end my own suffering and join him.

     

    But that, it seems, is not my destiny. I am fated to wander, fated to watch, fated to witness, fated to wait.

    Summary

    "It never got dark here in the future, and he could never see the stars. Arthur missed the dark—was that stupid, considering the thousands of years he had apparently spent in it?"

    Arthur returns from the dead: lost, traumatized, and out of his depth. Not even Merlin is familiar anymore.

    Summary

    After Arthur's death, Merlin loses himself and becomes careless. Then, Arthur returns.

     

    Or; What would happen if you lose all of your friends and you feel it is your fault? Trauma, probably.

     

    there is an archive warning for graphic violence and rape, but it is not too graphic or very explicitly described, but better safe than sorry.

    Summary

    Merlin dragged his feet, not sure where he was going, but knowing it wasn’t home. He didn’t want to go home—couldn’t bear to sleep another night alone. Five-hundred forty-seven thousand and eight hundred sixty-three [give or take] was too many as is. One more, many would say, would be nothing in comparison.

    Many aren’t Merlin, though.

    Many aren’t the ones who have had to do it.

    or

    Merlin receives one of the best gifts he could ask for this year, after fifteen hundred years of waiting.

    Summary

    Dr. Emily Cannon wants nothing more than to help the young man she finds before her. Found on the riverbank in London, after an apparent suicide attempt, he was a lost soul. His eyes bore the weight of a thousand lifetimes, his heart closed off to everyone. With no memory of what happened to him, he was a riddle, a mystery. Then one day he mentions someone from his past and she sees a spark of life in him. Whoever this person was, he was important to him. Little did she know, that person was Arthur Pendragon, the King of Camelot, and the young man she had been trying to help was none other than the legendary Merlin. Determined to help reunite Merlin with his king, Emily soon finds herself caught up in a surreal world of magic and resurrection, destiny and prophecy, love and hate.

    Summary

    A young man named Merlin, namesake of the great sorcerer, fulfills his lifelong quest to find Camelot's remains. What he didn't expect to find was the namesake of King Arthur, who got there first and claimed the castle for himself.

    Summary

    The Once and Future King sleeps in the hills, waiting to return in Britain’s hour of greatest need. This much we know. Arthur’s name echoes down to us out of the Dark Ages. But why? When that terrible hour finally comes, what will happen?

    My theory involves an ancient Volvo, a lot of bees, Arthur in pyjamas from Marks and Spencer, a random dog, some very old Anglo-Saxon magic, doom, death and the serpent-spawn of a dark god. [Thanks to thesmallhobbit & Raiyana for beta-reading & encouragement]
