    Summary

    Though Arthur hadn’t felt it, time had passed while he’d been with the Sidhe after Camlaan. When he returned to Camelot, fully healed and with Merlin at his side, it was to find Gwen remarried and with a family. He grieved but stepped aside, only wanting his one-time queen and love to be happy.

    Several years later, he and Merlin are bespelled by a dying witch, who insists they are both fools. They soon learn that if they don’t kiss every few hours, they are stricken with a severe illness. Knowing it will put the crown at risk, they keep it secret from all but a select few and quietly adjust their lives around it. Soon it becomes apparent that there is only one cure for the spell, but Arthur has long since come to terms with his unrequited love for his manservant and is afraid of all that will change if they go through with it.

    Summary

    Confronted with the shattering reality of Merlin’s magic and immortality, Arthur finds himself entwined in a destiny spun by the gods far before he walked the lands of Albion. Unwilling and unable to see a life without Merlin, we follow Arthur’s journey towards a deeper understanding of his affections and his place in the mystery of magic. As their pull towards each other takes them on a quest for deeply hidden knowledge, Merlin and Arthur work to unite the Kingdom under a path that they don’t even know the extent of.

    They come to find that such a Land of Myth and a Time of Magic expands further than either was ever taught to understand. This is a story that hopes to unwind the mysticism of The Once and Future King and Emrys. What do we really understand about the Old Religion? Specifically, what is this so-called prophecy?

    Ever the golden King, Arthur refutes the notion of ever being parted from the pale iridescent beauty and serenity of Merlin. Left with no other options, Arthur is prepared to forgo everything for the man. However, he can't know if this is the key to all or the trigger of the end.

    Destiny is a trick thing. Who are Merlin and Arthur to believe they are the only players?

    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

    Sighing, Arthur composed himself and resumed his trek around Merlin’s chambers until he reached his bed. It was large—almost as large as Arthur’s. He had made sure of it when he assigned Merlin his new chambers along with the title of Court Sorcerer. He had also made sure of the big, heavy, warm duvet covering it…

    Arthur swallowed hard as he eyed it. He had requested it specially made for Merlin… Only the best for his Court Sorcerer, after all. It was perfect.

    Soft, big, warm, heavy…and best of all, covered in Merlin’s scent.

    Or

    In which Arthur thinks he's sneaky, Merlin just wants to find his favourite duvet, and revelations are made.

    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.

Y, donde estaba Merlín, estaba Arthur.

    O, la relación de Arthur y Merlín según lo presenciado y explicado por otros.

    También conocido como:

    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.

    Summary

    Arthur Morgan has never had a chance to feel his own feelings. Outlaw life was simply too busy.

He leaves camp promising to return soon, but he plans on being gone for weeks as he travels the country. He has a lot of introspection to do as he works on himself. He plans on coming back to camp as a changed, better man with lots to donate. Along his travels, he gets captured and sexually assaulted. Now, with more pain than ever, he feels more lost than he ever has. He takes a deep dive into every choice he’s made and everything that has ever happened to him. When there’s nothing left of him and his soul is broken, he finds that there’s only one thing that his heart wants.

    Summary

    Summary

    "There is frost across Merlin’s already pale skin, in his lashes around his unblinking eyes. Agony rips through Arthur’s chest at the sight and he can’t, he just can’t. Death had not seemed so bad when he knew that he would be saving those he cared about most, saving the world at large."

    Arthur is ready to die to stop the Dorocha; he is not ready for Merlin to die as well. Unfortunately, the fact that Merlin doesn't shouldn't be possible without magical aid. This is a fic about Arthur's thought process through a more subtle magic reveal.

    Summary

    Arthur sees a change in Merlin and he isn't sure when exactly it happened. It occurs to the Crown Prince that, perhaps for the first time since they met, that he truly doesn't know his manservant, his closest friend, as well as he always assumed he did. Simply talking to Merlin is out of the question because asking would lead to Merlin discovering the one thing Arthur has been keeping close to his chest: his ever growing feelings towards the man. He enlists the knights to observe, but when someone from Merlin's past shows up in Camelot with ill intent, Arthur sees and hears more than he ever expected. Will Merlin finally let Arthur into his heart? Will Arthur accept Merlin, secrets and all?

    Summary

    When Arthur, Gwen, and the knights return to an unfamiliar world, they are faced with an even more unfamiliar Merlin. This Merlin doesn't smile, her laugh no longer dances through the air, and her once-expressive eyes have grown cold, hardened, and distant. She's seen too much in her time spent alone, wandering the world and protecting the land where the kingdoms of Albion once stood. Merlin is tearing herself apart and has been for far too long. All Arthur wants is one chance to put the pieces back together, to say the words he should have been saying to her all along.

    Summary

    Arthur grumbled as his dart once more missed the centre bullseye. There was a groan from Merlin and a laugh from Morgana, before a squeal from Gwen when Lance’s dart hit perfectly right in the centre of the dartboard.
    Lance grinned sheepishly at Arthur as their friends all cheered. The stallholder winked and passed them both their final darts, promising Lance a prize if he got the last one also in the bullseye.
    Which, of course, he did. The lights around the awning of the fairground stall flashed and a klaxon blared happily. A couple of passersby cheered and Lance blushed at the attention. Rolling his eyes, Arthur threw his last dart, missed the bullseye and shoved his hands in his jacket pockets. Merlin clapped him on the back, laughing good-naturedly.
    “Better luck next time!” he said sympathetically, but his grin told Arthur that he wasn’t holding out much hope that Arthur would do any better on the next game either.
