    Summary

    ___
    Arthur wasn't sure why this time of year was different.
    Not for him of course, because today was just like any other but for his sad excuse of a servant... now that's another thing entirely.

    For the past couple of years, Merlin became oddly quiet during this time. It always went unsaid but Arthur was not to ask why.

    Arthur knew it was a sensitive subject, although it was very odd since he wasn't like this when he first arrived in Camelot.
    Sure maybe Arthur didn't pay much attention to his servant in his first year here but he would've noticed if his rude servant who was constantly being insolent suddenly went quiet back then... wouldn't he?
    ___
    Arthur, his knights, and Gwen what to know why merlin is so sad. So they follow him only to discover... a secret love?
    and maybe his magic.
    *and apparently there is a danger to magic now...

    Summary

    A druid hits Arthur with a spell to bring out his true nature, believing he's fooled everyone, but especially Emrys, into thinking he's better than he actually is.

    The effects of this rather surprise her.

    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

    Set during/after the S2 finale, what if Balinor had not died in the forest, but had made it back to Camelot, only for Uther to betray him as soon as he finished saving them from the dragon?

    This is the last straw for Merlin, leaving Arthur to deal with Merlin's disappearance, struggling with unknown feelings and the rumours that now brand him an enemy, and leaving Merlin to either try and start over anew, or seek out revenge.

    Summary

    Merlin stared in silence at the parchment in front of him. It was stupid, really, that one piece of paper could render even the mighty Emrys himself so scared. Well, it was less so the paper itself than what it read.
    Not that he knew what it said, however. The unbroken wax seal holding it closed was evidence enough that the boy had not brought himself to read the contents, despite the fact it had sat there for well over a day now.

    “You’ve still not opened it then?” the physician assumed, sitting across from his surrogate son at the table. “You can’t leave it there forever, my boy.”

    He was right, of course.

    “I know.”

    ----------

    Merlin receives a letter with a seal he thought he might never see again, then a second only a few days later. With a little push and support from Gaius, he opens them to discover his kingdom has been reclaimed by the king, his father, meaning he could finally return home after nine years of exile. Merlin leaves with little explanation to Arthur, but when an unfortunate loss means Merlin has to step up to the throne sooner than expected, he invites Arthur to visit the reason he left so suddenly.

    A royal!Merlin merthur fic because if you cant find it, write it.

    Summary

    Merlin's life falls apart the moment he sees Agravaine kill Gaius after convincing the king he is a traitor.

Joining Morgana seems to be his best option, but is it really the right decision?

    Meanwhile Arthur tries to cope with losing his friend, but why does everything remind him of Merlin? Surely, he can't miss someone who wants him dead. They're supposed to hate each other now. The ache inside him is always there, though, and he knows only one person can fix it. Will the two of them finally search their hearts to see the truth?

    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

    Episode tag to 'With All My Heart.' Merlin, Mordred, Arthur and Gwen have all returned safely from the Cauldron, but Merlin has a few things to get off his chest. After all, it's not like he can tell Arthur what he thinks of being forgotten and abandoned, can he?
    *.*.*.*.*
    Gaius immediately assumed the worst, but it was an easy mistake to make. The grim expression on Merlin’s face as he stalked into the infirmary did not particularly shout ‘success.’ Neither did the way he flung his pack and jacket in the general direction of his bed without bothering to actually enter his bedroom, then spun on his heel and went straight to the storage shelves, glowering at the jars and bottles as if daring one or more of them to make a hostile move. They didn’t, and he cursed, not quite under his breath.

    The old man flinched. “Merlin…” he started. “What happened?”

    “Oh, you know,” said Merlin over his shoulder, with a sarcastic flip of a hand. “Same old, same old. Woke up, had breakfast, summoned a goddess; nothing worth mentioning.”

    Summary

    My own personal AU where Mordred and Merlin grew up together in Ealdor!! Mordred still has magic, as does Merlin

    Uther isn't an ass in this, just misguided. This has both Arthur/Merlin and Merlin/Lancelot/Gwaine, but in the end Merlin will choose. I will do two separate endings for each option!!

    Summary

    Alternate AU where there is a library of sorcerers and Morgause is one of them. Merlin seeks sanctuary with them as a child and is raised by Morgause. Morgause is good in this and it skips over some of the plot of the original show! Morgause and Merlin have a brother-sister relationship and Morgana is not Morgause's sister!!

    They all deserve the world. There is no other option.
