    Summary

    In a land of myths and a time of magic, the destiny of a great kingdom rests on the shoulders of a young boy. His name... Merlin

    When living in the village where he grew up becomes too dangerous, Merlin gets sent to Camelot instead to live with the court physician Gaius. When he suddenly (and rather unwillingly) gets the job of being Prince Arthur's manservant, he needs to learn the politics and intrigues at the court while hiding his magic from almost everyone around him

    He's not the only one who has things to hide as the Lady Morgana begins to receive powerful visions of several dangers threatening the kingdom and those she cares about and trying to prevent them is easier said than done with magic being outlawed. Come and see how the most extraordinary relationship in the Wizarding world came to be and find the answers to different questions

    Will Arthur ever learn not to be a clotpole? Who is behind the attacks on Camelot? Who has prevented several attacks?

    And who did Merlin, Morgana and all the others forget in the future?

    Summary

    It has been a thousand years since Arthur died. In the modern age, Merlin passes the days by maintaining Camelot's castle and healing the sick. He spends each night at the edge of the Lake of Avalon, awaiting a man he fears will never return.
    But of course, Arthur does return - to a world he doesn't recognize. Merlin must help him adjust to modern society before it is too late. Arthur struggles with his past and his destiny, along with the new world that he has difficulty making sense of.
    The world is in peril; a modern plague, climate change, and war threaten the existence of any future. Magic is dying, with Merlin being the only sorcerer at full power left on earth.
    Arthur and Merlin are the only ones who can do it. And, it being the two of them against the world, some feelings may finally bubble to the surface.

    Summary

    Arthur Pendragon was not a sorcerer.

    No.

    He was something a lot worse. An Omega.

    He was a creature born of magic, made of magic and he was destined to be the other half of a sorcerer one day. Omegas are the human version of a familiar, animal familiars becoming less common as time passed due to the tell-tale signs of sorcery was being able to talk and control animals. He was a conduit for magic, he did not have any of his own, but his body craved magic as sustenance. He would weaken over time and only being exposed to it would bring back his strength. Once a month he would go into a transference state as Gaius explained it where he would be more susceptible to receive magic and strengthen it. As an omega he would be able to channel his sorcerers magic and make them stronger, he could be the difference between being able to grow a plant or to summon a whole forest. The power that was inside of him…it was a whole new league that had never been seen in Camelot before.

    Summary

    The druids of old created the Prophecy of The Once and Future King.

    And they got it wrong.

    “They what?”

    “Wrong. They misinterpreted it.” Whatshisname is excited and has no idea Merlin is about ten seconds away from having the meltdown to end all meltdowns. Possibly literally. He is really rather stupidly powerful in his old age.

    “Explain. Quickly. Less excitedly.”
     

    Or

     
    There are reasons why you shouldn’t plan your future based on crystals. Or Druids. Or Dragons. Merlin would like a do-over, thanks.

    Summary

    Taryan always felt she pulled the short sticks in life, but walking out of a dirty and unkept lake was a new low, even for her. Taryan would emerge from the water and stumble in the beloved story of “Merlin”.
    After coming to terms of transitioning worlds, Taryan begins to think about her survival. This proves to be challenging with suspicious glances coming her way, mostly falling from the protagonist, Merlin. A secret conceiver himself, that is convinced more is at play with Taryan’s ploy of a servant girl with “amnesia”. Taryan decides she won’t limit herself to being just a “background” character and involves herself in changing the story.
    This includes saving characters' lives, starting (unexpected) relationships, and trying to lessen the burdens Merlin faces, despite his inquiries of her background. Taryan will learn not everything is predictable with neverseen characters' secrets, a reveal of a bastard son, and dark themes Taryan swears never would have seen the light of day in the story. Taryan’s choices are also no easy tasks, no thanks to a certain dragon that advises her own death and a destiny-bound warlock who might heed its advice.

    (PLZ NOTE- in Taryan’s universe, “Merlin” is a book series)

    Summary

    “Do these things only happen to me because I’m me? Have I done something wrong? Every time, every time I feel like I’m doing alright, something happens and I’m starting to think that-“

    “Well, stop thinking,” Merlin cuts him off, a sort of irritation present in his voice. “You haven’t done anything wrong. You can’t blame yourself for being who you are. You are the king, Arthur. People hate you just for bearing the Pendragon name, you mustn’t let them get to you. Don’t let them shake your faith, your heart, Arthur.” Merlin hugs him tighter, his words firm and strong. Arthur almost believes him, he wants to believe him. But the wounds are big, deep enough to scar and far too fresh for him to let him forgive himself.

    Summary

    At sixteen, Prince Merlin saw his kingdom destroyed and was forced into an engagement with King Cenred just because of his magic. Now, two years later and on the eve of his wedding, Merlin's crew takes him out on a final voyage before he's forced to give up his beloved ship and way of life forever in exchange for a life of darkness with Cenred. But it isn't long before the trip takes a turn for the worst and Merlin finds himself kidnapped yet again, this time by the unfairly hot and unbearably arrogant Prince Arthur Pendragon of Camelot, the very same kingdom with a reputation for making sorcerers’ heads roll. This should be fun...
