    Summary

    "So, you said Gaius sent you here? What seems to be the problem, then?”
    Deciding that bluntness is probably the best approach, Arthur gets right to the point. “I have Hanahaki disease.”
    If he wasn’t, for all intents and purposes, dying, he thinks, it would almost be funny how Merlin’s already pale skin drains of colour completely at those words. It makes him look like he’s the one with a deadly illness, not Arthur.

    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

    NOT A CROSSOVER!

    Just some (hopefully) funny, cute, weird moments between the F1 drivers, and characters in Merlin, separately. Probably will add some other fandoms in there too at some point. I just can't be bothered to make more than one work. I'll put the fandom in the chapter title so you can skip any from either fandom.

    Under constant editing.

    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

    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

    It was official that Kilgarrah only knew half the story, because otherwise Merlin wouldn’t have found himself taking a group of confused men ( and a woman ) to IKEA while explaining the history of the past fifteen centuries

    Summary

    This was supposed to be a break from university.

    Break.

    Ha.

    The holiday season had brought out every single Scrooge and Grinch to the particular establishment that Merlin worked in, and he was thinking of summoning some kind of spirit to scare them all off.

    Or just closing up early. It was Christmas Eve. A couple of minutes ago, he’d seen his manager, Jennifer, sneak off into the back room where she kept her spiked eggnog stashed, and he doubted she was going to come out any time soon to help him deal with the influx of people who thought Christmas Eve was the perfect time to do last-minute shopping and drop in for coffee.

    The line snaking out the front door was longer than a popcorn Christmas tree garland. 

    Merlin sighed. It looked like it was going to be another long day of working for him, with no end in sight.

    Just… great.

    Or:

    Merlin and Arthur bungle up their coffee shop during a busy shift on Christmas Eve and get interesting reviews from different Merlin characters.

    Summary

    Merlin was cursed with magic as a baby by a strange sorceress. Now that he’s come of age, he’s going on a quest to find her. There may be frustratingly cryptic dragons and unfairly attractive princes involved.

    OR

    the Merlin/Ella Enchanted crossover AU that I didn’t know I needed until I rewatched Ella Enchanted and made all the connections so I wrote this for my own entertainment and sanity

    Summary

    If Merlin could have an obsession that doesn't involve one of two men, that would be nice. Lancelot lives for the days when it was just Merlin panicking over Arthur's safety. That he could understand. But Mordred? About something that hasn't even happened yet?

    The story takes place in an AU where Lancelot dreads being stuck in the chaos between our twitchy warlock and his conflicted feelings towards their youngest knight. Love and hate are arguably two polar opposites of one another, but not when there's passion involved.. is there?

    Summary

    Arthur has only had three whiskies, but he feels drunk on Emrys, his touch, his taste. The music pulses around them, and he loses himself to sensation. He couldn’t say if it had been ten minutes or several hours by the time Emrys pulls back, his lips bruised and shining, and gives him a look.
    “D’you wanna—?” he asks, and Arthur doesn’t even think before replying.
    “Yeah, sure, anything,” he says, and he doesn’t care one bit how desperate he sounds.

    Summary

    Merlin's position as Arthur's manservant has become more widely known...it was only a matter of time until this became a problem.

    Merlin swallows, hands curling into fists. The chains wrapped around his wrists squeeze as his muscles flex. Fresh blood leaks where the metal loops dig into his skin, running down his arms where they’re hung over his head. He shifts, trying to alleviate the pressure, but his toes just manage to scuff the ground.

    "He won’t come for me."

    Yah. It's the fic where Merlin get's kidnapped because Arthur's a prince and everyone has to deal with the repercussions.

    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

    Merlin was having second thoughts about Camelot and his destiny. When he saves everyone from Morgana's attack, he reveals his magic. He always expected Arthur's rejection but it's still too much and he's just so done that he just wants to get out. Armed with his magic and Arthur's rejection, he was ready for what is to come and what is to be undone.

    Meanwhile, Arthur struggles with his feelings for Merlin and whether or not his fears would eat him alive or his feelings for Merlin would help him see how blind he was to the murder Camelot has been calling victories.
