    Summary

    Arthur is the reigning king of Camelot. He spends his mornings training new knights, his afternoons in council, his nights with Merlin, and by all accounts, he should be serenely happy. It's only when his nights grow restless that shadows begin to lengthen in the crevices of his life. Merlin's nightmares jerk them both awake in the hours before dawn, and Merlin's face grows taut and strained with secrets as the days pass by. Arthur tries fruitlessly to get the truth out of him, only to be met with hostility and anger, and turns to frustration himself. It's in the intimate silence of night when Merlin at last tells him the truth, and in the aftermath, Arthur is left to realize that there is no such thing as being unnatural, only what he has seen of human nature, and what he hasn't.

    Summary

    When Uther Pendragon gets a clue about the legendary dragon island, a place where dragons and the last kin of the dragon lords are said to live,
    he sends out his son and his knights to find it. And destroy it.
    The war path, however, did not calculate the storm that was about to come.
    And sooner than expected, Merlin and Arthur find themselves alone on the island.
    Faced with Merlin's past that only he is aware of. And secrets about Balinor, that should not have come to light this way.
    And to top it all of, Merlin is alone with Arthur. Who doesn't even know that he's already confessed.

    Oh yeah. And let's not forget the clusterfuck that Sir Leon has to deal with. :)

    Summary

    Bereft of the emotions that should have come at the implications of the sentence, Uther speaks the sentence 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

    All Merlin wanted was the day to recover from his trip down to the tavern the night before. Just one day where Morgana wasn’t an issue and Arthur took pity on him enough to give him the day off. What he gets instead is an invasion of the dead, a shocked and angry king, and spilling both his most guarded secrets. All in the same day.

    Summary

    When Arthur goes back for his manservant in the tunnels, he discovers the secrets Merlin has been hiding and makes an unforgivable mistake. With blood on his hands, and the whole kingdom unable to meet his eye, Arthur is pushed from Camelot. Forced to be alone with his thoughts and try to deal with the consequences of his actions.

    In one final attempt to make things right, he bargains with the sidhe. Trading his prophesied return for Merlin to live once more. The sidhe accept Arthur's offer, but there's one issue they don't mention to the disgraced king. Merlin never went to Avalon. In fact, he never left Camelot at all.

    Merlin may be back - albeit minus a handful of years worth of memories - but the people of Camelot still do not trust their king, and the enemies of Camelot draw closer by the day. Will Arthur be able to face Merlin and come clean? Will Merlin ever be able to work by Arthur's side again? Or will Camelot's enemies overthrow the weak king, and destroy the last chances of Albion ever being united?

    Summary

    "Arthur, is it not obvious? Talk to Merlin, really listen to him, and ask his advice, as you always do."

    "I should ask him myself?" he asked, to make sure he'd got it right.

    "Why not? You always ask him for advice or he tells you his advice to your face, even if you don't want to hear it. Why would you change this now, when it affects Merlin as well?"

    Arthur didn't even notice he was nodding and stopped moving. Then he nodded again, gave his wife a kiss and went in search of Merlin.

     

    or

    a story in which Arthur finds out thats Merlin has magic. How will he react?

Arthur, Gwen, Gaius, and the Knights of the Round Table seek out the Druids to find out everything they can about Merlin and his magic in hopes they can find their friend and bring him home.

    Summary

    An AU of the season 4 finale, wherein Arthur refuses to abandon his castle during Morgana's seige, and Merlin refuses to use magic to take away Arthur's will, so they're at an impasse.

    Rather than break his moral code to bewitch Arthur, Merlin decides to break his secrecy. If Arthur doesn't want to leave his Castle... fine. They won't. Merlin will just have to take it back for him... and all that entails.

    Summary

    Ever since Arthur woke up to a throbbing headache and Gaius and Merlin at his bedside, he's been... remembering things. Kind of. When he dreams, he sees familiar faces. Like Sophia, her father, his own father, and Merlin. But they certainly don't feel like his usual dreams.

    Still. None of what he sees lines up with Merlin's story, or Gaius's, so it can't have been what actually happened. Right?

    His life gets even more out of hand when a druid boy comes to Camelot and Arthur catches Morgana hiding him in her chambers, with Merlin's aid, of course.

    Summary

    “I do think we should look at these laws. I think it's time for a change.” Arthur murmured. "What do you think?”

    “Maybe I could have an opinion if you would share what you are talking about.” Merlin stood up, cleaned his hands and grabbed the parchment because Arthur hadn’t answered. “What law?” He asked as he skimmed the parchment.

     

    Or: Arthur shares an idea with Merlin. Should magic become legal?
    Luckily Arthur has already made a decision: yes!

    Summary

    Arthur had finally put his finger on it.
    The thing that had made Merlin stand out, the thing that had intrigued him about the boy ever since the first time he’d met him. The thing that was going to get him killed… Merlin had magic. Not only had it, but used it freely all the bloody time. It was only a matter of time before someone saw him do it, and then they’d report him to the king and Merlin would be dragged out into the courtyard and executed.
    Well, not if Arthur had anything to do about it.

     
    Mid series one, Arthur, for once not being totally oblivious, discovers that Merlin has magic. The problem is, having magic gets people killed and Arthur very much prefers Merlin alive. It turns out making sure nobody sees Merlin do magic is rather a full-time job however...
