    Summary

    'None shall be harmed. There has been enough.'

    This time, Hunith watches everyone’s faces. Clearly they hear it- feel it- too. 

    'Each person in this room has played a part in my child’s destiny. It is time you understand.'

    “Understand what…?”, Percival asks quietly.

    “Your child?”, Arthur echoes, much more forceful.

    Hunith’s face whips to Merlin. His brows are drawn together, his eyes so distant, on something unfathomable. This is the part of her son Hunith can’t reach. This is beyond her. 

    As much as it pains her, Magic was his mother first.

     
    'Relearn the past. It will become clear.'

    ------------------------
    Magic decides its child has been alone long enough. It brings those relevant to the crystal cave to share some of its memories pertaining to its child. Merlin and his friends watch him arrive in Camelot from a fresh set of eyes.

    Summary

    Modern roommates au!! Magic is outlawed across the UK. Since the 1990s, there has been a capital sentence regarding magical activity, and known sorcerers are branded with wrist tattoos for identification. When Merlin, a powerful and unregistered warlock ends up sharing a room with the son of the government minister responsible for the injustices against his kind, tension starts to rise despite the growing friendship between the two. Then a new law is passed and Merlin has a choice to make, one that will shape the future not just of their growing relationship, but of the whole world.

    Summary

    It's been a year since the first protests against the ban on magic, and Merlin and the others have come a long way: magic has been decriminalised, and mages across the country are beginning to come out of hiding and express their identities. Merlin and Arthur are now in their second year at university, and Uther is on trial for the offences committed during his time in office. On the whole, it seems things might finally be beginning to look up for Merlin. But not everything is going as well as first appears: with increasing openness about magic, anti-mage sentiment is on the rise. Mordred has vanished off the face of the earth, and Scotland Yard are still no closer to apprehending the person- or people- behind the attack on London Bridge the previous year. And when the unexpected happens in the midst of Uther's trial, it seems it can only take the smallest thing to pull all they have built tumbling down.

    Summary

    The dragon leaned forward. "Your destiny is to protect Uther Pendragon's heir, the one who will be the Once and Future King and unite all of Albion."

    Merlin blinked. "But . . . Uther doesn't have an heir."

    . . .

    In many Arthurian texts, Arthur is raised as a peasant by Sir Ector with no knowledge of his royal lineage. Let's bring that back, shall we?

    Summary

    Merlin defeated the creature easily. He turned away from his fallen foe and back to the boulder blockade he'd trapped Arthur behind. Too late, Merlin saw the King had found his own way out. He had seen... everything.

    Arthur didn't look angry. He didn't even seem surprised. Just... hurt. Merlin froze when he saw that Arthur was crying. The King hadn't seemed to notice it yet, his eyes lost and face void of emotion, but tear tracks lined his dust coated cheeks. Arthur didn't cry. It was a rule he rarely disobeyed, his motto, "No man is worth your tears." It took Merlin a second to understand, but he wasn't angry... he was heartbroken.

    Arthur discovers Merlin's magic. Realising that nearly everyone close to him has betrayed him, Arthur blames himself and obsesses over being the perfect King. He finally taps into his potential, follows his beliefs, and becomes the man that he was meant to be. Arthur also discovers he's not what he thought he was and begins keeping secrets of his own. Meanwhile, Merlin repents for his mistakes and learns about Arthur's past. What is Arthur hiding? Can Merlin win back Arthur's trust? Who and what is Arthur Pendragon, really?

    Summary

    After Arthur found out about his magic, Merlin had given up on the belief that there weren’t any secrets left to unearth about Arthur. He likes the idea, likes how it allows him to keep paying attention, how Arthur can still surprise him.

    Some things, though, he wishes he did not have to discover if only for Arthur not having to bear them in the first place.


    Five times Merlin learns something about Arthur that no one else knows, and one time Arthur proves that he has been watching Merlin just as closely.

    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

    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 8 chapters and a little over 25,000 words. I would never trust myself to post something unfinished lol.

    Summary

    Arthur likes his life: he likes his uni, he likes the city, he likes his friends.

    He loves Merlin. Beautiful, sweet, witty, defiant Merlin. Merlin who absolutely does not - cannot- feel the same way about him.

    Right?

    Summary

    Uther was mad at the world, and mostly mad at Arthur. He seemed to resent the boy and blamed him, as if Arthur had somehow chosen to cause his mother’s death. It didn’t take long for Leon to understand that that was cruel and wrong.

    Summary

    According to canon, Merlin is basically a demigod who has access to his powers since birth. He's also smart, resourceful, brave and determined. His control over time and his telekinesis should also trivialize just about every threat possible. Yet for all that, he has zero development until he comes to Camelot desperate for whatever life would give him.

    In this fic, all of that changes. Merlin fully embraced his power, which impacted both his life and his surroundings.

    So when he comes to Camelot Merlin still needs to figure out himself and his purpose like in canon, but he is in a totally different place both magically and mentally. Will that change everything? Or nothing?

    Summary

    The man looked young and very fit, with gorgeous dark curls and an inviting smile. Arthur couldn’t stop his lip from curling into a sneer when he leaned up and kissed Merlin’s cheek.

    Summary

    In a world where everyone knows that creating Jurassic Park was a bad idea...
    Just because it could be done, that didn’t mean that it should. It was a pity that Cenred King didn’t get the memo. And that he ever got Ygraine DuBois involved.

    This is the story of two generations of palaeontologists. A tale of love in a time of dragons. And dinosaurs.
    A fanfic 65 million years in the making.
