    Summary

    “I can't be with you, Arthur.”
    It wasn't the first time Arthur had heard those words. They were familiar in the same way that funerals were.

     

    Aka: the one in which Gwen rejects Arthur's proposal, because she knows there is someone else Arthur loves. (Also she loves Morgana, but that's beside the point lmao).
    He needs a while to realize whom she is talking about

    Summary

    And Arthur Pendragon experienced what magic actually felt like. It felt like love, at least Merlin's magic, and it was splendid. For a second whilst his friend whispered an incarnation, Arthur swore he heard a voice as ancient as the earth herself in his head.

    "Emrys has fallen for a mortal. What a tragedy, isn't it, your Highness?"

    My prompt for Day 3 for Merthur Week 2020!

    Hurt/Comfort

    "You're hurt. Please, just let me heal it."

    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

    "I'm a sorceror. I have magic. And I use it for you, Arthur. Only for you."

    ~~~

    For 1500 years, Merlin has tried almost everything he could think of to get King Arthur to return. Every incantation, every spell, every ritual, during every possible phase of the moon. Eclipses, Meteor showers, he had tried them all. He sat by the lake of Avalon during every coronation, every anniversary, and still the waters remained silent. What if, for Arthur to return, Merlin needs to be the very thing he fought against all this time? What if he needs to be the reason Albion is at its time of greatest need?

    Summary

    Where Arthur knows that he loves Merlin, but period-typical homophobia exists and therefore he does what he thinks is the best- he marries Gwen.

    Doesn't mean that he doesn't pine from afar.

    And then he dies and gets resurrected, and he meets Google.

    Arthur finds out that being gay is valid; that his feelings are valid; and 'sneakily' dates Merlin.

    They're cute lil babies and it all works out in the end.

    Summary

    Throughout the lands, sorcery is persecuted. It has been this way since before anyone can remember differently. Those who those who are caught using magic are persecuted, and when they are caught they are shown no mercy. For magic users, this means a life of hiding and fleeing. For one young warlock in particular, the hurt and loss he’s faced in the run for freedom has taken its toll.

    Or

    Prince Arthur and his knights are on a quest near Camelots borders when they encounter a party of slavers illegally transporting through Camelot lands. After defeating the slavers and setting most of their “cargo” free, the knights meet a young sorcerer bound by magic chains. He refuses to speak or trust his rescuers, which frustrates Arthur to no end, what with Camelot very publicly legalizing magic years ago.

    Summary

    There’s supposed to be a choice here. 

    There’s nothing but her shaking hands as she clings to Arthur’s waist and thinks of how close she is to seeing Gwen again for the first time in a year. Nothing but her shaking hands and Merlin’s accusing eyes boring into the back of her head. Nothing but her shaking hands and something horribly close to guilt sitting at the base of her spine every time she thinks of the relief and joy that had washed its way over Arthur’s face. 

    There’s supposed to be a choice here. Supposed to be something other than these shaking hands and the worry that her inability to turn on one person will send this whole affair crumbling into dust. Worry, that if it comes down to a choice, between Gwen and Morgause, she won’t know who to pick. 

     

    (She knows who she’ll pick but it’s ever so much easier to pretend that she doesn’t.)
