    Summary

    When his younger brother, Mordred, finds himself in serious trouble, Merlin can't just sit back and let his life fall apart. So, out of options, he turns to the one person who could possibly help him—the enormously wealthy business owner Arthur Pendragon.

    Arthur agrees to help, after some consideration—but of course, everything comes at a price, and for Merlin, it happens to be his hand in marriage.

    It's a matter of convenience, of course. Arthur needs a fake spouse to get his father and the public off his back about finding a bride, and Merlin needs the money. It's purely convenience.

    At least, that's what Merlin thinks...

    Summary

    That beaming light at Hani's Bethel does more than simply shine down on Arthur, and he takes away more than just a few meaningless trinkets. Explanations don't come easy, certain events have left their mark, but the only direction a man can truly go is forward.

    Summary

    “Hello, Arthur” he greeted softly. The baby smiled at its name. “It’s me, your good ol' Merlin – making sure that you don’t die any horrific deaths, because you’re a prat who can’t take care of himself.” The baby made agreeing noises. Merlin huffed.

    “Your Royal Highness is as eloquent as ever” he commented, lifting the babe. “Let’s take a little walk now, shall we?”

    Arthur giggled.

    Merlin took it as a yes.

    He overstepped the body of the fainted maid. His little Arthur would have no need for such luxuries during growing up. He was going to be a people’s man, with the education befitting a prince.

    He was going to be successful where Merlin’s Arthur wasn’t.

    The time where Emrys was needed the most had already passed, years before his own birth - so he makes a beeline right back to it.

     

    Or, what started as a one-shot and evolved into lots of small stories containing a more modern Arthur, a less exasperated Merlin, the camelotian character relevance and dying expectancy growing and much more!

    Summary

    "Erm, look, I just wanted to know if you wanted to go out sometime?" Finely got straight to the point. There was no point in dragging this out and, plus, he'd never been much of a talker, preferring silence and simple, repetitive work.

    "I'm flattered but no," Merlin replied curtly after a beat of silence and Finley's face fell as an immediate result.

    This was not how he had expected this would go. He'd at the very least expected a little more of a gracious and soft let down, not this. Apparently all the time Merlin had greeted him cheerily as if he'd been happy to see him meant nothing.

    His mouth tightened into a thin line. "Why not?"

    "Look, I'm currently a bit focused on Arthur right now-"

    Poor lad asks Merlin out at a bad time because he doesn't know the one rule of Camelot.

    Summary

    Merlin's jobs are as follows: Assistant physician, Prince's Manservant, and Secret Protector of the Once and Future King.
    A sudden influx of magical beasts from a nearby kingdom terrorising Camelot and flushing the Druids out of hiding forces him to take up another one: Emrys, King of the Druids. Of course, he's doing this anonymously, he's gonna need a disguise. No one can know it's Merlin kicking the shit out of stray Chimeras.
    Meanwhile, Arthur is terribly frustrated. His father won't let him out even as magical beasts are rampaging around the kingdom, and people are dying. Well, what Uther doesn't know won't hurt him. But he's gonna need a disguise. No one can know it's Arthur beating the brains out of random water spirits.
    And, sidenote: who's this Emrys guy?

    -----
    Merlin answers threats to Camelot and the Druids as Emrys. Arthur does the same in defiance of his father as The Red Knight. They're medieval superheroes.

    Summary

    Arthur was used to being trotted out by Uther as Camelot’s shiny, young ambassador. Though he didn’t care much for Cenred, he certainly wasn’t afraid of him. No, it wasn’t Essetir that bred knots in his stomach.

    For reasons that Arthur did not yet understand, it was the humble village of Ealdor that loomed specterlike over the journey ahead.

    When a diplomatic visit to Cenred's kingdom takes Arthur and Merlin through Ealdor, Arthur must confront a secret he has kept from himself since Merlin arrived in Camelot.

    (Also fair warning this contains a plethora of truly awful puns so continue at your own risk.)

    Summary

    Merlin used to dream what it would be like to use magic without any care of people watching, but it always seemed so unattainable. She thought coming to Camelot was a terrible idea. She would die in Camelot. But she had faith in Iseldir and he had faith in her, and they both knew, the only way to change people was from within. FemMerlinxPercival

    Summary

    У Артура с Мерлином особые отношения, ещё с тех времён, когда они были принцем и слугой. И хотя поначалу у многих возникает множество вопросов, когда они эти отношения замечают, вскоре в Камелоте (а затем и в некоторых других государствах) начинаю понимать и принимать: там, где Артур, там же всегда и Мерлин. И где Мерлин, там же всегда и Артур.

    Summary

    Merlin may not know much, but he knows not to believe any old prophecy a dragon tells him, especially without proof. He came to Camelot to determine his own fate, not to blindly follow his supposed destiny.

    He even turns down King Uther's offer to work as a servant for the insufferable Prince Arthur, but they just can't seem to stop crossing paths.

    The last thing Merlin wanted while he was on his hands and knees with his head in a bush, searching for the elusive snake, was to hear Arthur's pompous voice from behind him.

    "What are you doing?" scoffed the prince.

    "You haven't seen a snake around here, by any chance?" asked Merlin, extracting himself from the bush with difficulty and sitting back on his heels.

    "I'm sorry, one of my knights is in need of medical attention, and the physician's assistant is searching for a new pet?"

    Summary

    Finally, the man tears his gaze away and meets Arthur’s eyes once more. “I seek the aid of your Camelot,” he says, but his voice sounds more hesitant now, as if he’s had to change his response for some strange reason.

    Merlin can’t help but believe that reason is him.

    “As for who I am,” the man says with a bit of a chuckle, and he glances around the room again at familiar faces, at his friends. “I am Arthur Pendragon, King of Camelot.”

     

    Or:

    When a mysterious stranger shows up to Camelot claiming to be Arthur from the future and seeking help for his sick consort, Merlin learns some things about himself, about Arthur, and about a future he never dreamed was possible.
