    Summary

    For the first time in years, he felt more like a servant than a friend, and after all they went through together, Merlin couldn’t deny that it hurt. Of course, Arthur would want to spend some time alone with Gwen, that was normal, but Merlin felt like Arthur didn’t need him around as a friend anymore. Like he had been replaced. They used to talk in the morning, after the King had finally got out of bed after much grumbling. Arthur would tell him about his worries, he would complain about insufferable Lords and ask Merlin’s advice for how to solve a dispute or how to change a policy. Of course, he always pretended that he wasn’t taking Merlin’s opinion into account, that a servant didn’t have the wit or the knowledge to adequately understand a complex situation. But Merlin knew that Arthur always listened to him and that he valued his input. But now, he dismissed Merlin as soon as the servant had brought up his breakfast, claiming that he and Gwen could dress alone. Merlin missed dressing Arthur, making sure his hair looked good and fastening his armour.

    Or
    Arthur and Gwen's wedding marks the start of a series of events that will put a strain on Arthur, Gwen and Merlin's relationship.

    Summary

    When Merlin barges into the council chamber to declare himself a sorcerer and save Gwen from execution, no one believes him. So he does magic, obviously. Now, he needs to fulfill his gods-be-damned destiny while roughing it in the woods.

    What follows is a mess of treason, underground sorcerer societies in the heart of Camelot, DIY home construction, faeries, talking Griphons, and all the joy I think the characters deserved just for existing. And some angst. Just a little bit.

    Splits from season 1 episode 3 of the series ("The Mark of Nimweh")

     

    ***

     

    Merlin had to admit, being shackled to a wall did help one stay awake. He wondered if it was late enough for him to break out yet; being imprisoned was boring, and his wrists were getting really sore. Watching a pyre be built wasn’t particularly entertaining, unless one enjoyed contemplating their own death in the single most painful way imaginable. Merlin may have had every intention of escaping and none of dying, but the sight still made his stomach go cold.

    Merlin slipped out of the shackles and stretched his wrists, wincing, before putting them back on in a clattering panic when he heard footsteps down the hall.

    Summary

    One day Merlin uses his magic to save a child. It’s impossible to hide it.

    “Say your goodbyes and leave.”

    It’s better than Merlin could have hoped for, but he had hoped.

    “It doesn’t end like this,” Merlin tells Arthur. “We don’t end like this.”

    Summary

    The particulars of what happened, Arthur decided, were not important at the time. What was important was why Lancelot stood in the doorway to his room holding a child—no, toddler?—who thrashed and kicked until he ended up being held upside down. The child, even more importantly, looked suspiciously like Merlin.

    Summary

    Made from darkness and death itself, an ancient creature rises. Seeking the destruction of Camelot and all who live there.

    Meanwhile... Merlin's magic is revealed.

    -----

    All of Camelot was eerily quiet. The kind of quiet that was unsettling rather than peaceful. Something was wrong and Merlin wasn’t the only one who could feel it.

    Summary

    “I’m surprised you’re even still alive, sire,” Merlin hears one of the knights saying as he approaches, completely innocent. “You know, considering all the attempts on your life and all. I mean—”

    Merlin still doesn’t know why the words affect him so much, but they do nonetheless; the bundle of firewood falls out of his arms, unbidden, and he isn’t able to hear the clattering sound it makes over the sudden ringing in his ears.

    Summary

    Discovering the dragonlord Balinor was his father, left Merlin with so many questions. The man had barely given him a sliver of information about his heritage. Nothing that could explain the other secret he’d kept aside from his magic. The one he’d had to learn to hide since he was very young.

    In which Merlin is a half-fairy living in the mortal world unaware of his heritage, until he meets a fairy in the woods during a hunt. Lancelot is protective.

    Summary

    “Where did you learn to do that?” Gwaine asked, following Merlin up the bank.
     
    “This is how normal people fish,” Merlin replied dryly. “Not trying to stab them with swords.”

    “This is a knife,” Gwaine retorted, sounding every bit as sulky as he felt.

    “Still, you didn’t catch a fish.”

     
    ------------------------------------------------------

    Gwaine saves a young Merlin from a beating and ends up with a new little brother to take care of on his travels.

    Or, what would Merlin be like if he had Gwaine influencing him over his formative years?

    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 had always known he and Arthur were two sides of a coin. He’d accepted it as fact, and he’d never thought to question it any further.

    “It was never a coin.” Merlin muttered to himself, “It was never a coin at all.”
    ---
    In the months after Camlann, Merlin discovers everything he'd assumed about destiny had been wrong. Destiny had never relied on a two-sided coin, but a three-pointed triad. And Merlin had failed to see it.

    Summary

    Merlin has a new pet not-quite-a-dragon, Leon has a son who is maybe a little too interested in that lake in the middle of the park, and maybe these two immortals are finally getting all their friends back. At least, that's how it seems now that Lancelot saved Leon's son from drowning and Elyan ran out of the lake with his sword drawn ready to cause problems.

    Summary

    “I think I need to start charging people to ask me stupid questions.” Merlin mused, letting his head fall back off the couch, effectively hanging upside down.

    “What you need is a rich himbo.” Gwaine declared and Merlin opened an eye to peer at him curiously.

    “What?”

    “For your questions tax.” Gwaine explained.

    “Hmm, I don’t know, I mean, first of all, where would I even find a rich person? And Secondly, obviously, fuck the rich.”

    “That might be fun.” Gwaine said, grinning.

    “That is not an instruction you idiot.”

    “Not with that attitude.”
