    Summary

    At sixteen, Prince Merlin saw his kingdom destroyed and was forced into an engagement with King Cenred just because of his magic. Now, two years later and on the eve of his wedding, Merlin's crew takes him out on a final voyage before he's forced to give up his beloved ship and way of life forever in exchange for a life of darkness with Cenred. But it isn't long before the trip takes a turn for the worst and Merlin finds himself kidnapped yet again, this time by the unfairly hot and unbearably arrogant Prince Arthur Pendragon of Camelot, the very same kingdom with a reputation for making sorcerer's heads roll. This should be fun...

    Summary

    When the newest threat to Arthur's life forces Merlin to stay awake, he learns of a potion that can help him. He can't help but consider other uses of this potion.

    Update: This plot has spiraled into so much more than that. If you're interesting in a good mix of Angst and h/c and don't mind complete disregard of canon, this story's for you.

    Summary

    Merlin's magic has always been connected to his emotions, but when it starts reacting to his love for Arthur and flowers start appearing every time he looks or thinks about him, instead of a confession he chooses to pretend he has a magical cold. Arthur doesn't like it when Merlin avoids him though. And neither does Gaius. Or Morgana. Or Gwen. Or even the bloody dragon, it seems.

    Sooner or later, they'll have to talk. And Merlin can only hope that Arthur won't mind the mountain of flowers they're swimming in because really, it's his fault for being so damn good-looking.

    Written for the flower mini-challenge on the Merlin Fic Book Club server on Discord.

    Summary

    Mummy Holmes had summoned everyone home to meet with their respective partners. What follows next is pure chaos!

     

    Be warned, I have not watched the James Bond movies for a while so the character will probably be very OOC. Sorry about that!

    Summary

    Arthur knows that he must be the reason that he and Gwen aren't able to have a child. They have a few fights, but Arthur makes a few plans, with Gwen's consent, of course, that leads to giving her what she wants and not losing her.

    OR

    Arthur sends Merlin to Gwen's chambers late at night to deliver a gift, not telling him that Merlin is the gift. Gwen is thankful her husband cares so much about her. Merlin spends a lot of time confused.

    (Set near the time that would be the beginning of season 5 and taking a scenic route around and away from it. Canon divergent, so not everything happened the way it did during season 4, but a lot of it did.)

    Summary

    Everyone knew to never wake a sleeping Omega.

    So, when Arthur glanced up from his stack of scrolls to find Merlin curled upon the floor and asleep within a pile of his sweaty tunics, he straightened and tensed as if bestowed a rare and sacred quest.

    Summary

    "My king, we do not intend to stand against you. We merely wish to spare an innocent life" the king was about to say something, but she didn't gave him the chance "The boy cannot be accused of practicing magic, because he doesn't have it on him"

    Arthur looked at Morgana, the question evident on his eyes. Mordred had magic, they had seen it glowing in his eyes. There was no doubt, so what was she up to?

    She merely glanced at him, before looking back at the king.

    There was something behind her eyes, a determination and something else... amusement?

    Oh, no.

     

    Or:
    When Morgana and Mordred were caught trying to escape, and take to Uther, she stands for him, claiming he doesn't have magic and that she wants to keep him as her ward. The king demands a proof, and the almighty Emrys has to intervene.

    Summary

    “Camelot needs you.”

    Sometimes, Merlin’s steadfastness can be admirable. At this moment, though, Arthur rather feels like throwing something. 

    “Camelot needs you too, you idiot,” Arthur snaps. 

    “I’m just a—“
     
    “If you finish that sentence, gods help me—“ Arthur points a threatening finger. “I thought I had made it quite clear. How many times do I need to repeat it to get it through your thick skull?”

    “Never said it once, actually,” mutters Merlin, rather insolently. 

    “No, fairly sure I have,” Arthur insists. “If you weren’t listening, that’s your problem.”

     
    A Battle of Camlann AU where Arthur knows about Merlin’s magic, Merlin is Camelot’s Court Sorcerer, and neither one of them dies.

    Summary

    It makes him breathless sometimes, sitting in the silver moonlight, head in his hands, knees on the floor. The taste of dust in his mouth and the tight strain of his lungs against his ribcage. It’s a silent torment, one that Merlin sweeps under the rug for the morning so that he can serve Arthur, at least for as long as he can.

    Summary

    Fifteen hundred years since Arthur had passed, generations after Albion rose to its prime and crumbled to dust, and Merlin continued to wait for his king who never seemed to rise. And in the face of this divine mockery of his existence, Merlin finds himself spiraling away in a degrading path. And the greatest warlock of all times began to fade, replaced by a broken shell of a man, hope beginning to slip away as all sense of control slipped from his grasps. And the day he breaks in the worst way he could, and a concerned Leon is left helpless, a knock on the door echoed through his home.

    It had been said that Arthur will rise in Albion's greatest time of need.

    Summary

    “Damn, I’ve let down my guard!” Gwaine remarks, staring down a leaf in the wind.

    “Save some of that guard for practice,” Arthur tells him, trying to convince him to ease up about the leaf/plant joke. Gwaine considered it, but his counter argument was the ‘Flying Pigs Incident’; these embarrassing leaf fights were his revenge.

    -

    Merlin has a sneeze-fit in class and a sore, itchy throat because it’s allergy season; which leads to a sandpaper-sandwich at lunch, fighting leaves on the walk back home with his friends, and a christmas-mug of tea at Arthur’s house, in the spring, near the end of the day; all while determination is pulling at him to prove he can do what he deems he can without someone specific to prove it to.
