    Summary

    “Arthur thinks I've been possessed by an evil sorcerer. How’s your day going?”
    __

    Merlin wouldn’t have gone to all this trouble to hide his magic if he had known how Arthur was going to react.

    Summary

    ‘Oh, I understand perfectly,’ I replied with a humourless laugh. ‘You’re defending him because he’s always been more important to you than me.’
    All the colour drained from his face. I knew I was unfair, but it was also unfair that he expected me to be magnanimous and just forgive them because he said I should. Because he knew that they wouldn’t (I had been sure of that, too, and yet the ‘impossible’ had happened).

    Summary

    The world was strange. There was a time where almost every other person had some sort of magical ability. Whether it was making toys hover through the air or helping bathwater to stay warm longer. But some had abilities that scared those without. Their vibrant colored hair showed the extent of their powers. While most people would have a few streaks here and there, or color that was only at their nape, it was common knowledge that they held some innate skill with magic. There were many who didn’t know what their ability was, but they held a colored streak that would fade as they grew older. It tended to manifest in many in their adolescence; their magical abilities. If they studied to try to figure out what their ability was, if they didn’t know, then their hair would brighten the closer they got to figuring it out. Once their color settled, their eyes would glow a brilliant gold color when they applied their magic. It was breathtaking to behold.

    Summary

    5 Times Merlin disguised himself. And 1 time he stops hiding

    Alternatively:

    When Gwaine finds out about Merlin’s magic, he convinces Merlin to use it for funs sake.

    He learned of the Dolma and Dragoon and immediately makes Merlin come up with new diguises.

    And he does it, so Merlin can hear how Arthur talks about Merlin behind his back.

    Which is surprisingly positive. And partly embarrassing, but Arthur doesn’t even notice how obviously he’s pining.

    Merlin, however, sees it for the first time from the eyes of a maid, a knight, a royal, a stable boy, a barkeeper etc.

    Surprisingly enough, Gwaine doesn’t even ask Merlin to prank Arthur. He just makes him listen.

    And that’s how bitter and depressed season 5 Merlin gets healed from his paranoia and self depreciation.

    Summary

    What if Lancelot really was the fifth son of Lord Eldred of Northumbria, and he and Merlin met in different circumstances? Would their destinies still be entwined?
    (That’s a rhetorical question, of course.)

    «»«»«»

    Chapter 6: On bitter disappointments, sudden realizations, and promises of tomorrow

    ‘I’d ask you to come with me, but I think we both know what your answer would be.’
    Merlin shrugged helplessly.
    ‘I wish it could be yes. But Arthur needs me…’
    ‘I know. I just hope he realizes what he has.’

    Summary

    Bereft of the emotions that should have come at the implications of the sentence, Uther's tone is stoic as if his own son is a common prisoner. “You are to leave Camelot by nightfall. If we find you have returned to the grounds of this kingdom we will have no choice but to carry out your original sentence in the highest order.”

    Exiled and disinherited? Brilliant.


    An AU where Uther, under the influence of Troll!Catrina and Goblin!Gaius legitimately disinherits Arthur and he must deal with the consequences thereof in an attempt to reclaim Camelot.

    Summary

    Merlin uses his magic to burn Morgana's influence out of Lancelot's shade, but while it succeeds in returning the knight to them, it's far from a painless procedure.

    Summary

    “Merlin, you’re not fine! You’re- you’re so far from fine! You died right before my eyes!” Lancelot shouted, disbelieving his own words as he tries to convey the seriousness of the situation. “Right here Merlin! In my arms!” His chest heaved with the unspoken words he wanted to express even as they died on his lips.
    ________

    Everything changes when Merlin discovers the real destiny the fates had in store for him. The real meaning of the title he was given at birth, Emrys.

    Summary

    “Oh good, you’re awake.” Arthur sits up at the low, rumbling voice. There’s an honest-to-gods dragon sitting in front of him. It’s mottled dark blue and purple with piercing, lamplike eyes. “I was wondering when you’d wake. Do male humans always make that odd, snuffling sound in their sleep?”

    Arthur's accidentally kidnapped by a dragon.

    Summary

    They say not to put all your eggs in one basket, but Arthur only has one basket. He must somehow convince Camelot that Merlin - and, by extension, magic - deserves to be free on the actions of the warlock alone. Only, his subjects are difficult to sway, and his nobility harder. Meanwhile, he must battle his growing feelings for his manservant - and the fact that he doesn't only love Merlin.

    In which Merlin must fess up to everything he's ever done in front of all of Camelot, and he has to hope that his good deeds outweigh his evil ones. It has all come down to this.

    Summary

    Merlin should be happy, he wakes up every morning in the arms of the man he loves, he has plenty of friends, and job he doesn’t really hate as much as he says. But Merlin is also a coward, and a liar and the worst kind.

    He shares his prince’s bed without telling him the truth. He continues to hide from those he loves and he’s starting to feel the weight of shouldering his destiny and his lies.

    But when asking for some help doesn’t go the way he planned and an old face returns to Camelot, Merlin is suddenly faced with choices that threaten to destroy the careful facade he’s put up and leave him vulnerable for all to see.

    Summary

    Lancelot flinched away from Arthur like a kicked dog. Head down and voice soft, he murmured, "I know I don't deserve it, but please, sire..." He didn't finish the request, but the fearful look in his eyes as he finally glanced up at his king conveyed his wish clearly. 'Please be gentle with me.'

    Summary

    Now, more than ever, Lancelot needed something to believe in. He still held on to the dream to make things right and regain his honour. When the fey knight assumed the title of the rebellion leader, Lancelot hoped that this time he chose his leader right. And while no one said it would be easy, Lancelot had never backed away from a challenge.

    Summary

    Arthur is there, and so is Merlin, but something is broken. Someone is missing, and no amount of careful distance or forced humour fills in the chasm that Lancelot left behind.

    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.
