    Summary

    Uther dies instead of Ygraine when Arthur is born. Balinor helps Ygraine secure her position as regent, magic isn’t banned, and Merlin and Arthur grow up side by side. Camelot is different but not cloudless, destiny is still a troublesome thing, and Arthur is still charmingly oblivious when it comes to things that matter most in life.

    Summary

    “I was wondering if you might come home with me.” Merlin stops mid-rant and stares at him, and then down at his panini again, and back at Arthur. This is a panini of lies and pain. He can tell already.

     

    “For Christmas? I’ve got an uncle and a mother and a sister waiting for me at home, in case you hadn’t remembered, I’m not going home with you just because you’re a workaholic.”

     

    “No, it’s. My mum might be under the impression that we’re a little bit married.”

     

    In which Merlin gets conned into spending Christmas with Arthur's family and pretending to be his husband, because somehow this is his life.

    Summary

    Modern X-Factor AU. A nervous Merlin auditions for the X-Factor with just his guitar and a dream to impress Arthur Pendragon, the bad guy judge who has been known to make grown men cry on national television. Arthur, on the other hand, has to juggle the pressures of his job with his media mogul of a father constantly looking over his shoulder and second-guessing his decisions. He doesn't want to like Merlin at first, but as time goes on he finds himself more and more drawn to the strange contestant.
