    Summary

    “You really do have a soulmate.” Arthur said with a frown and Merlin shrugged. “That might be a problem.”

    "Can’t stand anybody but you having a shot a true love?” Merlin asked flatly. Arthur wrinkled his nose.

    “No, idiot. Spirit animals don’t get along unless they belong to their soulmate. If my bird sees your hideous lion-“

    “He is quite dashing, thank you. Besides, your bloody bird is too loud-“

    “My bird is just trying to do me a favor and tune you out!” Arthur snapped and took a long breath “The point is they can’t be around each other. So unless you want Emmy to pluck out this lion’s eyes I suggest you tell him to bugger off.” He snapped. Merlin was inclined to tell Arthur to bugger off himself, but was immediately distracted by one word.

    “Emmy?” He repeated and smiled. “You did name him.”

    Or

    In a time of myth and a land of magic, your soulmate’s spirit animal looks after you (even after you meet your soulmate). Arthur and Merlin are oblivious fools. We know this. That doesn’t change here.

    Summary

    A series of one-shots (and some short multi-shots) about our favourite, littlest paladin. Mostly fluff. Definitely some angst. Almost all chapters are rated for general audiences, but there are a couple of chapters that require a higher rating (for violence); these will be rated accordingly within the individual chapters.

    Summary

    Because if there are places where magic survives in the 21st century, one of those places is surely Oxford. Because the fellowship of Camelot deserved happier fates than the show gave them. Because it's hard for a king to save the world, and harder for a prophecy to be broken. And because, though there are many imaginings of what happened to Merlin, surviving into a new world, I wanted to write this one.

    This work is tagged for Arthurian mythology (and related fandoms) because, as some readers may notice, I've borrowed ideas from medieval literature and modern retellings, which will be acknowledged in the respective chapters.

    Weekly updates planned for Wednesdays; begun 10 June 2020. Note as of 20 August: this fic was planned to be finished by the end of the summer; it will not be. It has grown in the telling, and while it is plotted and sketched out to its end, the regularity of updates is very likely to suffer as the academic year begins. Subscriptions recommended to interested parties.
