    Summary

    “Well, I was thinking -”, Arthur began, but Merlin interrupted him. As always.
    “YOU- thinking? Now I'm getting worried.”
    “My plans are always well thought through. Just so you know.”
    “I think we both know who of us does the thinking and what happens, when you leave me out of your plans.”

     

    Alternatively:
    Arthur makes a plan to get Percival and Gwaine together. His plan involved a fake relationship with none other than Merlin Emrys himself. His best friend.
    And crush, obviously. Yes, Arthur's plans are very well thought through.... as one can imagine

    Summary

    The Royal pair had weird expressions on their faces as they looked at him, almost pained as they held their breaths.

    "What's your name?" The King asked, descending the steps, "Why are you here?"

    "My name's Gabriel," His hands clasped to his sides as he bowed deeply, "But please, Your Majesty! You have to help my father! He's hurt in the woods and made me come alone because he was too weak! He said you're the only ones I can trust to help! Please, he might die! You have to save him!"

    The Queen, who was next to her husband, stepped closer to him and knelt down, placing a hand on his shoulder. "Who's your father, sweetie?"

    He glanced at her, standing up straight as he reached into his back pocket, pulling out his dad's old red neckerchief. The whole room gasped at the sight of it. "He said this would prove I'm telling the truth, that his name is Merlin."

    Summary

    Full of hope and energy, the young pups of Camelot get sent out on a pursuit for Arthur’s 21st birthday. These hotblooded men have a great time bonding, bouncing about the forest half naked, befuddling Uther’s knights, and making a beeline back to Camelot for cuddles and cocoa by the fire.

    Or

    Uther sends the boys out for a night of fun, and nobody actually bleeds.

    Summary

    I hope you never find these, but in case you do, don't find me weird. I've never met you and this is as far as I let my imagination wonder. I'm not even sure If I am allowed to call you father, but let's pretend I am.

    So, 'Father', these letters are for myself, not for you. I do this to ease my mind so I don't think about the lack of your presence every second of the day.

    Sincerely, your son(?)
    Merlin.

    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

    Kilgarrah has been cryptic at best and infuriating at worst. Merlin's not sure what he expected, but surely the great lizard could've given him a heads up that he'd start growing SCALES.
    That's not the least of it, and he can't exactly ask for a work leave to get his brand new claws in order. What's he gonna tell Arthur? And is it going to be even a little bit believable?

    Summary

    In the year 2082, thirty Sorcerers who called themselves “The Pure” took over England in a violent coup, established a magical supremacy, and ruled until Uther Pendragon and his underground forces defeated them. Uther became dictator, taking charge of the country in its State of Emergency. All sorcerers tied to The Pure were publicly executed. Sorcery was declared illegal. Uther's peacekeeping Patronus force crushes rebellions. All who are suspected of practicing magic disappear or are executed. England grows increasingly restless under Uther Pendragon. Laws on sorcery have begun to change in other countries, and civil unrest stirs again in England herself.

    In this changing political landscape, Uther Pendragon’s son Arthur finds himself at University, caught between his father’s expectations and his own growing unease about his father’s policies and persecution of magic. His friend and classmate from childhood, Merlin Astur, has kept his secret as long as he's been alive. In the face of a changing world, threats to his closest friends, and an ancient Druid legend, he struggles to keep his magic hidden while protecting those dear to him.

    Summary

    He let go of Arthur’s neck and let one of his fingers trail down Arthur’s chest, stopping short on top of Arthur’s heart. “I was worried you were getting a little… soft,” Merlin continued, repeating his words from the feast.

    Summary

    So Merlin sat down, and went to sleep again. He slept and he slept, and once a year, he took note of the battle. One for All and All for One. Once a year, he watched One for All get passed down, it’s connection to magic growing larger as it did so. And once a year, he stared into the lake, watching the strand of light that was Arthur’s soul float gently upwards.

    or

    Merlin reincarnates himself into Izuku and Arthur into Katsuki, and they both have a bit too much free time on their hands.

    Summary

    People [are] hiding everywhere; stand still as a stone...

    Merlin has imagined telling Arthur his secret. He's thought about it countless times, hundreds upon hundreds. Thought about his fate, his destiny to serve Arthur as the Once and Future King.

    But he's never imagined this. Never thought this would happen, never thought he would take such a step.

    And now he is certain that his end has come.

    (Or, Merlin plans or rather decides spur of the moment to reveal his magic and - if necessary - die trying. Because how can he be completely, utterly certain that he is immortal, Kilgharrah? And how can he truly serve Arthur if he forever conceals an integral part of himself?)

    Summary

    Merlin wished for nothing more than his bed as he finally left the banquet hall. He had spent the entirety of the day as Arthur's punching bag or running around delivering remedies from Gaius. Then, of course, there was the banquet itself and Merlin would have been fine if he hadn't been asked to stay behind and help clean up. Now, he was simply exhausted.
    He made his way across the courtyard and yawned when he suddenly saw one of the statues on the balcony lean over. The stone cracked and broke, toppling over the edge.
    He looked down, spotting the son of a nobleman sitting on the steps. The boy was maybe 11 years old. He didn't see the statue. He sat there throwing pebbles at a larger rock, unaware of the block of stone above him.

    Summary

    In the age old tradition of all the clichés we love enough to call tropes: Merlin owns a bookshop full of board games and everything D&D. His friend Arthur (who would never enjoy such silliness, thank you very much Mer-lin) is a frequent visitor.

    And they’re best mates, nothing more. Except maybe Arthur’s jealous, and maybe Merlin’s catching feelings. But snuggling and watching Doctor Who is totally platonic, right?

    Summary

    Merlin was simply hunting for garlic when he was attacked by a group of bandits. Next thing he knows, he's alone in the bottom of a pit and slowly bleeding out with very little hope of rescue. Until, quite suddenly, he's not alone any more.

    Summary

    To start things off.
    Arthur is 23 years old. Gay, and still in the closet.
    Even as everyone around him seems to come out at their own pace, he himself seems stuck in here.
    He wants to tell someone, but there are several reasons why he can't.

    That is... until he's swept off his feet by Martin Emerson. Or, as he calls himself: Merlin.
    A man who is so utterly and completely strange and so not what Arthur expected destiny to throw at him.
    Yet... there was something about the boy. He just couldn't put a finger on it.
