    Summary

    Gwaine, along with Arthur and the whole group of Not-Knights (thanks Uther), is on his way back from a 'routine' border patrol when something - or rather, someone - unexpected is discovered in the woods near Camelot. A young woman, found battered and alone, causes questions to arise - especially when, brought back to Camelot for a Physician's attention, questions about her identity arise. All too soon, the stakes get higher: enemies, old and new, rear their heads and loyalties are brought into question. Love, friendship, family - and destiny - are put to the test as the woman threatens danger not only to herself, but to Gwaine, Merlin, Arthur, and Camelot's cardinal rule: No Magic Allowed.

    PREVIEW: This is just the first chapter to test the waters - until the whole fic is completed, I am unlikely to update this!

    Summary

    It seems that in every battle, Merlin resorts to dropping tree branches on the heads of his and Arthur's enemies. But surely there are several problems with this as a battle tactic...?

    In which tree-branch-dropping goes very wrong, and Merlin learns to branch out.

    (Also fair warning this contains a plethora of truly awful puns so continue at your own risk.)

    Summary

    Morgana tries to rid herself of Emrys once and for all, her mode of operation? A substance made of the mushroom commonly known as Tippers Bane. Taken alone it is harmless, but taken within an alcoholic beverage, such as mead, it is deadly. With her victory over Emrys almost complete, Morgana thinks she will finally be rid of her mortal foe, but what happens if a supposedly unaware knight drinks the poisoned mead instead of Morgana’s intended target? And what happens when Merlin learns he was the intended mark, and that an innocent person took his place and may pay the price.

    Summary

    Because if there are places where magic survives in the 21st century, one of those places is surely Oxford. Because the fellowship of Camelot deserved happier fates than the show gave them. Because it's hard for a king to save the world, and harder for a prophecy to be broken. And because, though there are many imaginings of what happened to Merlin, surviving into a new world, I wanted to write this one.

    This work is tagged for Arthurian mythology (and related fandoms) because, as some readers may notice, I've borrowed ideas from medieval literature and modern retellings, which will be acknowledged in the respective chapters.

    Weekly updates planned for Wednesdays; begun 10 June 2020. Note as of 20 August: this fic was planned to be finished by the end of the summer; it will not be. It has grown in the telling, and while it is plotted and sketched out to its end, the regularity of updates is very likely to suffer as the academic year begins. Subscriptions recommended to interested parties.

    Summary

    Life can be hard.

    Especially for a boy like Merlin Emerys, the new boy from America who is very quiet and studious…and who happens to be gay.

    But for Arthur Pendragon, popular golden boy and rugged rugby player, life has been easy…

    When he saves Merlin from what appears to be a violent engagement in the alleyway of London he thinks little of it…until he comes to find the boy he saved is his newq school partner at Elton Boys College...and life becomes...well complicated.

    Their budding, if odd, friendship quickly becomes something meaningful.

    Butl for Merlin, who knows he has no chance with the school's "prince", decides telling Arthur he fancies blokes (mainly, Arthur) is not worth losing their friendship over.

    … But love works in surprising ways, even if it takes a lot of hurt and misunderstanding to get there

    Because as it turns out… Arthur is more interested in Merlin than either of them realized.

     

    Inspired by the graphic novel and Netflix series Heartstoppers

    Summary

    "I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
    And Roman cavalry choirs are singing,
    Be my Mirror, my Sword, and Shield,
    My missionaries in a foreign field.
    And for some reason I can't explain,
    once you know there was never an honest word,
    but that was when I ruled the world."

    Some people would say she was destined to fail, destined to burn, destined to be written as a villain. But with the help of her Mirror, Sword, and Shield, Queen of Albion she will become, and Queen of Albion she will remain, even in the face of a powerful threat to their ways of life.

    Summary

    What would it take for everyone to realise how much Merlin sacrifices each day?

     

    Lance turned around, following the beast's movement, and his breath caught, all air left his lungs. Merlin stood at the top of the hill, eyes glowing, magic swirled around him like leaves in the fast winds of autumn.

    Summary

    Uther hears that Arthur is the Once and Future King foretold in a Druidic prophecy, destined to join Emrys in returning magic to Camelot. Uther declares Arthur a traitor, forcing him to flee Camelot with Merlin. The catch? Arthur has no idea who Emrys is, let alone any desire to fulfill the prophecy. Merlin is pretty sure this destiny business just got a whole lot more complicated…

    Summary

    Arthur is the only son to Uther Pendragon, magic-hating King of Camelot.
    Merlin is the most powerful wizard in existence.
    Their friendship is not only unlikely but potentially dangerous (for Merlin).

    Add into the mix a centuries-old curse that affects every person throughout the kingdom, and really, everything could go completely wrong.

     

    (I am still working on this fic, only that it takes me a while to upload chapters bc uni is energy draining. More chapters are coming!)

    Summary

    There are magic reveals, A narrator whose only job seems to be sarcasm, and a plot that keeps Lance alive. That's what ya'll really want, right?

    Started out as a one shot but I couldn’t help myself… it turned into a fix-it.
    -—-

    Gwaine found himself in very unique situations whenever near to Merlin.

    (Yes. Seeing Merlin drag dead people into their graves is a unique situation.)

    -—-

    "Uh?" Lancelot said. He directed to continue.

    "This isn't.." Merlin gestured with a hand to the body on the floor. 

    He'd been dragging it. It was exactly what it looked like.

    -—-

    I am trying my best to stay on track with what actually happens in Merlin. However, there are *huge* empty spaces in-between seasons and episodes that I cannot, as a singular human, fill properly. Expect divergence from the canonical plot, including and not limited to Lancelot being alive (because I started writing without watching Merlin for a while and—hoo boy, the death of Lancelot is earlier than I thought).

    Thank you for listening in on my TED talk

    Summary

    “Ah!” Merlin gasped as he dropped the weapon he had picked up to polish. Of course, the prince’s sword was made of cold iron, it was made specially to kill sorcerers and magical creatures after all.

     

    or

     

    Merlin realises that a lot of Arthur's stuff is made of cold iron and has to adapt to that.
