    Summary

    Arthur is the Prince of Wales and the heir to the British throne. Merlin... well, Merlin is the son of a Welsh chef. Thrown together by luck, or perhaps fate, they both grow up in Buckingham Palace and become close friends, despite their differences.

    As an Alpha, royal duty calls for Prince Arthur to marry well and produce an heir with an Omega, once he has finished university and his military service. Merlin is left heartbroken at the thought, with a huge secret of his own - one that could see him forbidden from being with Arthur ever again, which is the last thing either of them want to happen.

    Set over nearly thirty years, this is the tale of Merlin Emrys and HRH Prince Arthur Pendragon, bound together by destiny, love, and just a little bit of magic.

    Summary

    *******************

     

    “No.” He whispered fiercely. “I know how to release it from within Merlin's body. We will free him before it comes to that. It was just a dream.” It had to just be a dream. That couldn’t be their ending after everything.

     

    Morgana stared him in the eyes, her face hardening. Tears glistened on her cheeks, but she was deadly serious as she shook her head in defeat. “No, Arthur. If there is one thing you need to know about my visions, it’s that my dreams always, always come true.”

     

     

    ********************

     

    As only second in line for the throne, Arthur should have expected to one day be sent off to marry a princess far away. He hadn't expected it. Nor had he expected to be betrayed and imprisoned by an evil sorcerer along the way. Even less did he expect to meet someone there who would change his life forever.

    As for Merlin, he never thought there was anything other than this life. This prison. This ruin that was his magic. It only took one person to show him there was something more worth fighting for.

    But at what cost?

    Summary

    Merlin has the tendency to accept the advice of others only at the most inopportune moments. So, what happens if Merlin ignores Gaius' and the Dragon's advice about Morgana? What happens to Arthur when he does that? What happens to destiny?

    Or:

    Merlin does his best to stop taking shit from the goddamn dragon.

    Summary

    What if Morgana's prophetic dreams had been much more useful, particularly early on? If she'd gotten enough spoilers (say, by viewing Seasons 2-5 in her dreams), could she have prevented her tragic future? Yet another redemption fic for Morgana, who deserves it.

    NOTE: This fic is Rated M. If sexual relations between consenting adults is upsetting to you, particularly when it involves women having agency over their own bodies and their sexual choices, neither this fic, nor "Le Morte d'Arthur," is for you. Slut-shaming women is not acceptable behavior; any more of that nonsense, and I'm turning off comments. Go shout at Sir Thomas Malory's grave, boys. He at least got paid for his writing.

    Summary

    A whine almost escaped his throat when there was suddenly a hand against his nap. Arthur tried to take controlled breaths, but he was sure that the only thing in the air around him was his fear. The man leaned down, his nose trailing down to his scent gland. Arthur’s hands went to his knees clutching them as if his life depends on it.

    Summary

    Thousands of years after Arthur's death, Merlin continues to prepare for his return. He's lived a thousand lives, a thousand names but Merlin will always ring true. He's seen countless wars and horrid betrayals but nothing strikes him harder than seeing Arthur bleed out in his arms. His master, his king, his closest friend, his... dangerous line of thought. That pain is no longer fresh but it remains a dull ache at his sternum as he passes the lake of his beloved each day. Until one day on his routine walk, he sees a young boy with a too familiar arched brow and skilled hands when the pain turns into hope and Kilgharrah's words ring in his mind: "for when Albion's need is greatest, Arthur will rise again"

    Summary

    It wasn’t fair. Arthur was only supposed to be in Camelot for one week. A single week, while he solicited more grain for his starving village. That was it.

    Instead, he managed to somehow save the life of a prattish prince and was now bound by the king to serve him.

    And what was with the dragon in the dungeon, calling him the “Once and Future King?”

    Life, most definitely, wasn’t fair.

    Summary

    People [are] hiding everywhere; stand still as a stone...

    Merlin has imagined telling Arthur his secret. He's thought about it countless times, hundreds upon hundreds. Thought about his fate, his destiny to serve Arthur as the Once and Future King.

    But he's never imagined this. Never thought this would happen, never thought he would take such a step.

    And now he is certain that his end has come.

    (Or, Merlin plans or rather decides spur of the moment to reveal his magic and - if necessary - die trying. Because how can he be completely, utterly certain that he is immortal, Kilgharrah? And how can he truly serve Arthur if he forever conceals an integral part of himself?)

    Summary

    Merlin wondered what had possessed him. There was no way he could go on Camelot Come Dancing. He was certain to fall over his feet, make a fool of himself on live TV, and become the first person to be voted off. Yet if he could have the undeniably handsome dance god Arthur Pendragon as his partner then perhaps it wouldn't be so bad...

    Summary

    One person can change everything. The stars may drive men's fates, but the stars never counted on a farm boy clawing his way back to life out of stubbornness and a wish to protect his oldest friend.

    He might not be part of some prophecy, but by god he'll turn it on it's head.

    Summary

    I have never made use of my account for posting stuff since I'm not much of a writer. But I am an illustrator. And I am currentley reading a Merlin fanfiction by vividpast which I fell in love with. Over the years I have really read a lot of fanfictions in this fandom and it gets harder and harder to get my fingers on new, good material. I love the premise of vividpast's story. It's something I haven't seen before and it is a lot of fun to read. In the story Merlin gets transported into an alternate universe, in which not Igraine died, but Uther. So Camelot is a very different place. He meets people he recognizes, but doesn't really know. At least this version of them. It's a joy to get to know this other Camelot. Especially since we never got to see this in the series.
