    Summary

    [One hunting trip. That’s all Arthur wanted. One trip that didn’t involve dangerous magical creatures or bandits or other non-traditional hindrances. For once he would like for his biggest problems to be a damp sleeping bag.
    But no, it could never be that easy. Arthur’s camp was long forgotten as he dangled from the claws of the dragon. He’d woken up to see a dark figure standing over him and the next thing he knew he was dangling hundreds of meters in the air with a pounding headache.]
    Or, Merlin is a dragonlord, the son of the dragonlord Balinor who rules over the dragons in the North. Arthur is the prince Merlin is instructed to kidnap. Balinor is the exasperated father and general who just wanted to legalize magic but accidentally set his son up with the child and heir of his greatest enemy.
    Whoops.

    Summary

    In pursuit of a sorcerer, Arthur and his knights stumbled into a cave. As the ceiling collapsed on them, Merlin had no choice except to reveal his magic or let all his friends die. That choice was not a choice at all.

    But as Merlin's magic began to run out and tensions with the knights run high, it seemed he might have made the wrong choice after all.

    Summary

    Arthur couldn’t kill Merlin.

    There wasn’t a single universe where he could bear to draw Merlin’s blood, to watch as life slowly left his pale, fragile body. Or maybe not so fragile after all — he’d survived as much as Arthur had and didn’t have the chainmail to thank for it. Just his own quick wits and tough skin.

    And, apparently, magic. 

     

    Or: it's a cold wintery night when Arthur discovers Merlin, his most trusted and beloved, using magic to light a fire. Now, he has to make a choice, although really, he's always known what it would be.

    Summary

    The dragon leaned forward. "Your destiny is to protect Uther Pendragon's heir, the one who will be the Once and Future King and unite all of Albion."

    Merlin blinked. "But . . . Uther doesn't have an heir."

    . . .

    In many Arthurian texts, Arthur is raised as a peasant by Sir Ector with no knowledge of his royal lineage. Let's bring that back, shall we?

    Summary

    Gwaine begrudgingly agrees to become a knight of Caerleon once more. Call him a softy, but he'd do anything for his family. At least anything except get married to a complete stranger when Queen Annis demands it. He meets a young man also trying to run away from his problems, and uses it as an excuse to get out of there too. There is more to this Merlin than meets the eye.

    Summary

    If there is something bigger than Uther’s hatred for magic, Gaius had said, is his greed for power.

    Uther finds out he has a figure of legend (well, two figures of legend) living under his roof, and he decides to take advantage of it. In the meanwhile, Arthur and Merlin have to deal with some revelations, and Morgana reconsiders her loyalties.

    Summary

    Merlin defeated the creature easily. He turned away from his fallen foe and back to the boulder blockade he'd trapped Arthur behind. Too late, Merlin saw the King had found his own way out. He had seen... everything.

    Arthur didn't look angry. He didn't even seem surprised. Just... hurt. Merlin froze when he saw that Arthur was crying. The King hadn't seemed to notice it yet, his eyes lost and face void of emotion, but tear tracks lined his dust-coated cheeks. Arthur didn't cry. It was a rule he rarely disobeyed, his motto, "No man is worth your tears." It took Merlin a second to understand, but he wasn't angry... he was heartbroken.

    Arthur discovers Merlin's magic. Realising that nearly everyone close to him has betrayed him, Arthur blames himself and obsesses over being a perfect king. He finally taps into his potential, follows his beliefs, and becomes the man that he was meant to be. Arthur also discovers he's not what he thought he was and begins keeping secrets of his own. Meanwhile, Merlin repents for his mistakes and learns about Arthur's past. What is Arthur hiding? Can Merlin win back Arthur's trust? Who and what is Arthur Pendragon, really?

    Summary

    “Is this…” Arthur starts. The sword drops in his hands, his grip loosened by disbelief. “Merlin,” he tries again, and tries to steady his guard. He has to ask, has to hear it and know. “Are you...are you the one responsible for all of this?”

    He gestures at the room with his sword, trying to encompass everything from the pitcher pouring a goblet of wine on the table, to the corner where a cloth is vigorously polishing Arthur’s boots.

    “What, my chores?” Merlin says.

    Summary

    Merlin has always been told to listen to destiny, but when the course of fate collides with the need to help a friend, he is left with an impossible decision, or at least one he realises might not have been the right one after all.

    Summary

    Arthur Pendragon and Merlin were literally from two different worlds. One is a prince from a great kingdom and the other a common farm boy from the next kingdom over. These two should have never met.

    But that was before they realized their parents were once friends and arranged the two of them to marry when they reached adulthood. That was before Uther turned on magic and Hunith went on the run with her infant son.

    Now almost twenty years have passed and these two boys have grown into men. Camelot knights have found Hunith and come to collect her son.

    Will Merlin survive this new world he has been thrusted into? A peasant among royals, a sorcerer among those that would have him killed if they found out. Can Merlin even begin to hope for happiness when the prince he is forced to marry wants nothing to do with him?

    Follows canon but with my own arranged marriage spin to it

    Summary

    Arthur gave Merlin his cloak thinking only of the warmth it would offer in a snowstorm. He never thought his manservant may be mistaken for him and snatched by bandits. Nor did he expect his dashing rescue of Merlin to turn his world so utterly on his head.

    Because the bandits hadn't kidnapped a prince. They'd snatched a sorcerer, and now captivity is the least of anyone's problems.

    Summary

    Under the rule of King Arthur Pendragon, Camelot has lifted its ban on magic, allowing magic users to roam freely within its walls. Both Arthur and Merlin are overjoyed by this development, and their reasons are more similar than the two of them ever would have thought. As fate foretold, Arthur and Merlin are two sides of the same coin.

    Summary

    Merlin just wants to survive. While fleeing a death sentence for his magic, he’s captured by pirates. Captain Gwaine offers him the chance to use his magic to help the pirates navigate storms and find treasure on a mystical island protected by magic. Merlin thinks that sounds like certain death, but it beats being stuck in the brig.

    Besides, he’s taken a particular interest in the quartermaster, Arthur, a man he definitely shouldn’t trust.

    Summary

    In which Merlin's secret is revealed in an unexpected way, Arthur learns the 'legends' are true and a lot of things come to light.
    Cross-posted from Fanfiction.net (but rewritten)

    Note:
    I've marked this as Gen because the Merlin/Freya is really not the focus of the story.
    But as some people really don't like the pairing (and some do) I felt it better to tag so they had a heads up.

    Summary

    Arthur sees a change in Merlin and he isn't sure when exactly it happened. It occurs to the Crown Prince that, perhaps for the first time since they met, that he truly doesn't know his manservant, his closest friend, as well as he always assumed he did. Simply talking to Merlin is out of the question because asking would lead to Merlin discovering the one thing Arthur has been keeping close to his chest: his ever growing feelings towards the man. He enlists the knights to observe, but when someone from Merlin's past shows up in Camelot with ill intent, Arthur sees and hears more than he ever expected. Will Merlin finally let Arthur into his heart? Will Arthur accept Merlin, secrets and all?
