    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

    He looks at Merlin, expectant, but discovers Merlin still fully clothed, rifling through the wardrobe at the far end of their chambers.

    “Won’t you join me?”

    “No. I’m taking good care of you tonight.” On the surface, it is a promise of tender pampering, but that’s far from the truth. A shiver runs down his spine.

    Summary

    Merlin was told Arthur would rise again when Albion needed him the most, but when he does, it is not only for his duty with the promised land, but to protect the person he cares about most in the world.

    Summary

    Arthur was straight. While he fully supported gay rights and everything and had friends there were gay, and bi, he was without a doubt, straight. He, just like Merlin, have only had girlfriends, (Gwen being one of them) and he, recently, asked this girl, Sophia out.. Also unlike Merlin, Arthur had actually kiss a boy once, a long time ago, and that was, to say the least, awkward, sloppy, and just wrong, and Arthur knew, he wasn’t gay… At all.

    Yep, Arthur was straight…

    Summary

    Excerpt: "“Don’t be ridiculous. I could’ve killed you. It’s the least I can do. Please,” he added as an afterthought, his eyes begging Merlin. A small crowd had gathered and people were starting to murmur. The last thing Arthur needed was the press declaring that Uther Pendragon’s son had tried to kill a sorcerer with his car. But most important of all, Arthur couldn’t let him go. Even after all those years, he still couldn’t let him go."

    Summary: It's been almost ten years since Arthur shattered Merlin's heart. He's regretted it everyday since. But with Merlin's career as Nimueh's future successor and Arthur's marriage to Elena, he'd given up hope that there could ever be anything between them again. By chance, he hits Merlin with his car. Is this the second chance he'd given up on? Or is this going to end up in flames? (Spolier: it does get a little flame-y towards the end, but you'll see. Heh heh.)

    Note: I have written the entire story which is currently at 9 chapters and over 30k words. I would never trust myself to post something unfinished lol.

    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.

    Summary

    Merlin is tired, so so tired. All he wants is a break. If no-one will grant him one, he'll just have to force it by dying (or nearly dying). Arthur find him and is worried, as is to be expected. He drags the unconscious Merlin over to the physician's chambers and makes sure his friend is well taken care of.

    I suck at summaries, lol.

    (I also suck at titles, so double negative whammy for promotion. Let's hope the tags make up for it.)

    Summary

    Arthur was born of magic. Scared and unsure of how to use his power and a father who hates all that is magic, will he and his new friend Merlin be able to learn and co-exist in a world that was made of magic?
    Who will magic call her own in the end?

    Excerpt:
    “Can magic corrupt a person?” Arthur hated how weak he sounded, but it is truly something he didn’t understand and he wanted to know the truth.
    “Is a sword evil or good?” Merlin countered the question slightly. He knows that Arthur needs to see that magic is neutral that it is the wielder who manipulates it.
    “Neither.” Arthur gave Merlin an unsure look.

    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

    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

    “Arthur.”

    “Merlin?” he said, instantly angry. He shoved himself into a sitting position, fumbling for the candle on the table by the bed, and blustered, “What on earth are you doing? It’s the middle of the night! I don’t know about you, but that’s when I sleep. Don’t you--”

    Finally managing to get the candle lit, he looked up at Merlin, fully prepared to continue his lecture. But the words died in his throat at the sight of the young servant, and he choked in the rush of panic that assaulted him. “Merlin!”

    Summary

    He thought loving Merlin was one of those things he’d never have to talk about. It was a certainty, as sure as the sun rises in east and sets in the west. It was as sure as the waves always leave only to come back to reach the shore. He loved him, and he would never have him. Things would be too complicated.

    He wished he could define it as something other than longing. But that’s what it was, and he couldn’t stop it, no matter how hard his mind strived to be free.

    Alternative title: And I Look For You In The Spaces In-Between

    -

    The old man smiles again, pulling out a handkerchief and wiping his mouth and hand. The blood makes Arthur’s stomach curl.

    Arthur crosses his arms over his chest to hide the way his hands are shaking.
     

    Or: Arthur meets a peculiar old man at a garden party who he has never met before but inexplicably knows.

    Summary

    What kind of world was this that Arthur lived in, which would see a man executed just for saving another man? What kind of justice was that which would punish Gwaine for protecting a man that had been mistreated, a man who happened to be Arthur's dearest friend?

    Or:

    Arthur's POV during Gwaine's trial in 03x04 and the missing scene afterwards, featuring Arthur being overprotective and emotionally constipated. Nothing new.

    Summary

    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.
