    Summary

    After centuries of waiting, Arthur returns.

    In theory, it was all very simple: They solve whatever the situation that brought him back was, and live peacefully forever after. But life, even after centuries of experience, is not that straightforward. Arthur is the not the only one whom Avalon resurrects. And the much more worrying situation: How is the problem warranting the rise of the Once and Future King so hard to find?

    In a tangle of twisted pasts, dark mysteries, old friendships and some new ones, will everyone finally bring their great Destinies to a close?

     

    Note: This is sequel of the 1st Part of this series- 'Of Queens, Lakes, Dragons and Knights'- and I would recommend reading that first. However, this can be read as an independent work as well.

    Summary

    Arthur’s worried about Merlin—the servant’s been off for a while now, and he won’t tell the prince why. So when Arthur comes across his journal, he begins to read it, hoping to discover what’s plaguing Merlin. Instead, he finds out his servant’s been hiding more than what’s upsetting him. Meanwhile, Merlin must figure out how to stop Morgana’s latest attack without exposing himself, not knowing that Arthur is in the process of uncovering his largest secret.

    (A sort of “watching the show” fic, except Arthur is reading Merlin’s diary, I don’t re-hash all the episodes word-for-word, and there’s an outside plot.)

    Summary

    An execution was not exactly on Merlin's bucket list, wasn't even what destiny had intended for him, but it would figure that Uther Pendragon's final act would be one last strike against magic. On the bright side - because Merlin's nothing if not desperate for silver linings - he gets to learn more about magic and its still existing community than the castle he has once called home could've ever offered him. And when he finally returns, things might've just changed enough for all of them to have a chance at a better future than fate had planned.

    Arthur, for his part, really wants to catch a break, and to stop thinking about his late manservant. It should probably be less of a shock that it does not work out so neatly. Between concerning dreams, the realisation of just how wrong his father was - about nearly everything, really - and trying to deal with the loss of the person closest to him, Arthur learns a few things about making choices that aren't always easy, but right.

    Or sometimes, things have to go downhill first before they get better, and if Uther had known about the eventual outcome, he might've changed his mind, for once in his life.

    Summary

    Arthur was skeptical at first, about adopting baby Aithusa. Scared that they weren’t ready to become fathers, not yet anyway. Scared about the responsibility of taking care of another human being. About teaching them of life and all that, while still ruling the kingdom

    Summary

    Arthur scrambled back in surprise as a figure sat up, shaking broken moss and bark out of its hair and sputtering nonsense.

    It was a human.

    Or Arthur thought it was a human. It had black hair, pale skin, and big ears.

    His eyes opened.

    They were made of a brilliant gold that looked as though it had survived a hundred centuries and could survive thousands more. Wisdom, unspeakable. Power, unbreakable.

    He was fae.

    “Why are you dollopheads all staring at me? Is there something wrong with my ears?”

    OR

    Merlin claims they've met before, but Arthur doesn't remember the pesky fae at all. He also can't figure out why he isn't dead yet or how to get the idiot to quit following him around.

    Summary

    Prince Arthur has Paruresis, also know as Shy Bladder Syndrome, where he finds it almost impossible to relieve himself in the presence of others.

    His former manservant, George had known that, and always gave Arthur his privacy in the morning, when the Prince woke up with a full bladder.

    But when Arthur gets a new manservant, who happens to be a complete idiot and never takes the hints to leave the room, Arthur feels too embarrassed to openly tell him about his problem. So he begins holding his piss every morning, waiting for Merlin to leave him alone.

    Some days, he makes it. Other, days... well.

    Eventually, Merlin finds out. He offers to help Arthur overcome his bladder shyness. And so, he begins training the Prince to let go in his presence.

    Summary

    Written for Bottom Arthur fest (November 2020).

    *-*
    Arthur has had a complicated relationship with Gaius’ new assistant from the very start. You could say they definitely started off on the wrong foot after Merlin confronted him in the courtyard for tormenting Morris during his knife-throwing practice. Merlin had been cheeky to the point of insolence and courageous to the point of stupidity, and Arthur had thrown him into the dungeon with utmost satisfaction after fending off Merlin’s hilariously bad swing. Frustratingly enough, Arthur hadn’t been able to stop thinking about Merlin after that.

    Summary

    "No, that can't be it, right? Tell me there's more," muttered the former king heatedly. "Surely, Cas deserves to hear it back after twelve years of waiting on Dean."

    "Twelve years, one hundred years, one thousand and five hundred years.. surely that's hardly a difference when happiness is not in the having," quoted Merlin, eyes shining bright. His warlock was truly a sentimental fool. "...but in the being in love. I've waited 1500 years for you, Arthur. I'd know."

    "Merlin, is this your way of saying I love you?"

    or,

    Merlin and Arthur watched the moment when Supernatural made Destiel canon. This is how Merthur can still win.

    Summary

    "You really are a pain in my side you know that," Arthur said but there was no real heat behind the words. Merlin sat proudly on the table, peacocking his newly healed wings and he thrilled smugly as if saying "I know but I'm going to keeping doing it to annoy you".
    Arthur sighed, shaking his head with a small smile on his face. Merlin and him had an odd relationship but no matter how obnoxious the dragon became he couldn't bring himself to wipe the carefree expression from his face. "Alright then," Arthur said standing up. He walked over to Merlin and held out his arm. The dragon jumped on to the limb and clumsily climbed up the fabric of his overcoat. He sat down on Arthur's shoulder and lovingly nuzzled the side of his head.
    Arthur pushed him away but not enough to knock him off his shoulder. Merlin let out a playful cry and fell off his perch. Arthur, on instinct, reached out to grab him but he flipped in the air, beating his wings in a hover. His pointed teeth were on display in a dragonic smile.

    or

    Arthur finds and cares for a wounded dragon which turns out to be a warlock in disguise, but the prince doesn't know that.

    Summary

    Arthur had always known that magic was linked to people's emotions.
    That was something his father had mentioned once when he was younger. He sat Arthur down and told him how dangerous magic was.
    How you couldn't trust people who chose to use magic. Because their anger and their fears would bottle up and make them explode. They were living bombs.

    Sorcerers could not be trusted. Even if they seemed like good people, magic would slowly overtake them, corrupt them and destroy everything around them.
    And if you were unlucky, you would catch their disease. Their magic. And become a bomb yourself.
