    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

    Arthur gave Merlin his cloak thinking only of the warmth it would offer in a snowstorm. He never thought his manservant may be mistaken for him and snatched by bandits. Nor did he expect his dashing rescue of Merlin to turn his world so utterly on his head.

    Because the bandits hadn't kidnapped a prince. They'd snatched a sorcerer, and now captivity is the least of anyone's problems.

    Summary

    The Dragon Lords once lived and ruled happily in Camelot. That all changed after the Battle of Camelot. Now they live in the Wilds, No Man's Land, a place where clans and dragons rule. A routine errand to collect herbs for Gaius gets complicated when Merlin ends up saving the life of one of Camelot's best knights. Which begs the question; how and why would a knight from an enemy kingdom come to be in the middle of nowhere?

    Summary

    In a land of prejudice, and a time of despair, the burden of keeping everyone alive rests on the shoulders of a young boy. His name… Merlin.

    Merlin finally loses it when Balinor dies in his arms. While the warlock drowns in guilt and sorrow, the end game shifts.

    A story in which Merlin’s mantra is “Destiny, prophecies, and Kilgharrah can shove it somewhere the sun doesn’t shine.”

    Summary

    (Aka, Adventures of Merlin and Gwaine— then Lancelot and eventually others)
    Very often and sometimes a bit too many times for his taste, Gwaine found himself in very unique situations when near to Merlin.
    The smell of blood and dirt smothered his senses, and Gwaine couldn't get up the energy to remove himself from this situation.
    At the moment, it seemed quite a bit unusual to watch that very manservant drag dead bodies into a hole so casually.
    Gwaine drinks and Merlin assassinated people. No biggie.
    (I feel like this is on crack, but at the same time I'm trying so desperately to keep the "plot" on track. Takes place in the year between S3 and S4 and will continue into S4 whenever I feel like I can write a plot)

    Summary

    Alright. Kilgharrah had had enough of this shit. He was over 1000 years old and he had still never met someone so inclined into getting into trouble as his lord and brother, Merlin.

    He had been alone so long. Twenty years without a soul left in the world who cared about him. He was the Great Dragon, Triple Goddess be damned. No longer would he let Merlin risk his life alone, unprotected and uncared for.

    There was only one clear course of action left.

    Assume human form and move to Camelot as Merlin’ long lost half brother. It was mostly true, anyways.

    There was no way for this to go wrong, he was sure.

    Ah. Famous last words.

    Summary

    When Leon's father's health takes a turn for the worse, Arthur seeks out a magical being who may be able to help him. However, during their search, Arthur and the knights learn a dark secret about Merlin's past, his hidden family, and life-altering connections to Camelot years before he ever went.

    Basically a kind of dark, very relationship-based story about Merlin's magic being revealed. And Merlin is a badass.

    Summary

    “Hello, Arthur” he greeted softly. The baby smiled at its name. “It’s me, your good ol' Merlin – making sure that you don’t die any horrific deaths, because you’re a prat who can’t take care of himself.” The baby made agreeing noises. Merlin huffed.

    “Your Royal Highness is as eloquent as ever” he commented, lifting the babe. “Let’s take a little walk now, shall we?”

    Arthur giggled.

    Merlin took it as a yes.

    He overstepped the body of the fainted maid. His little Arthur would have no need for such luxuries during growing up. He was going to be a people’s man, with the education befitting a prince.

    He was going to be successful where Merlin’s Arthur wasn’t.

    The time where Emrys was needed the most had already passed, years before his own birth - so he makes a beeline right back to it.

     

    Or, what started as a one-shot and evolved into lots of small stories containing a more modern Arthur, a less exasperated Merlin, the camelotian character relevance and dying expectancy growing and much more!

    Summary

    "My dearest:

    "Travelling half of the Earth´s surface hasn´t done anything to make me forget you. Magic is slowly being replaced and men have lost their humanity in their chase for wealth and power, they need you as much as I do to guide their way through. I´m trapped in a cycle of endless war and barbaric enemies who are hooked on destroying everything nature has kindly provided to us. Let me tell you all about it, and maybe some day we´ll catch up on each other´s lives over a nice cold tankard of mead. I swear I won´t cheat again at dice, just come back to me Arthur."
    Or: Merlin struggles to hide his magic (yet again) even though Arthur left Camelot completely safe to magic users.The warlock first has to deal with angry council men, strange celtic prophecies-and when all his living friends finally say their goodbyes to him-real life hits him and he has to find out in the difficult way just how impossible it is to stop the world from changing for good. All while waiting hopelessly for the one person he wouldn´t forget, not in a thousand years, not in a whole lifetime.

    Summary

    At first, it hadn’t crossed his mind- not really- that Merlin may have such a distinct and specific taste in men. It had all fallen into place when one fateful afternoon, Merlin spoke about some Greek hero, some ancient, Hellenic lad by the name of Achilles.

    or,

    In which Arthur wants to look like Achilles to win Merlin's heart, but of course, he's missing the whole point.

    Summary

    “I’ll have you know; I’ve won every tournament!” Merlin clucked his tongue.
    “In your father’s kingdom? What a surprise.”
    Arthur huffed. “I’d like to see you pick up a sword, you’d probably stab yourself on accident.”
    “Oh, don’t tempt me.”
    --------------------
    Once upon a time, in a land divided, a thwarted heist by a foreign prince leaves Princess Morgana under a love spell unfortunately directed onto Merlin, the all-powerful, grumpy wizard that lives in the woods. Morgana's annoying brother, Prince Arthur and Leon travel to the woods to save her. Merlin and Arthur begrudgingly get along (until they all too willingly get along). Things get overly complicated when there's no clear answer to Morgana's problem... and Prince Thomas is still planning Camelot's demise.

    And Arthur's totally not falling for the wizard, what, ah ha

    Summary

    What if things went a little differently when Merlin saved Arthur?

    “Someone quickly! Get him to my chambers,” he heard Gaius shout.
    Merlin was starting to get delirious before a strong set of arms hoisted him up carrying him out of the hall. He faded in and out of consciousness hearing snippets of voices, Hurry Antidote Not enough, before he succumbed to the darkness.

    Or I gave everyone a couple extra brain cells, Uther was nice for 5 seconds before I put him six feet under, and Merlin was a bit OP and a gardener.

    Summary

    When Merlin barges into the council chamber to declare himself a sorcerer and save Gwen from execution, no one believes him. So he does magic, obviously. Now, he needs to fulfill his gods-be-damned destiny while roughing it in the woods. But first, he needs to figure out what's poisoning the water.

    What follows is a mess of treason, underground sorcerer societies in the heart of Camelot, DIY home construction, faeries, talking Griphons, and all the joy I think the characters deserved just for existing. And some angst. Just a little bit.

    Splits from season 1 episode 3 of the series ("The Mark of Nimweh")

    Summary

    'It was awkward business to ignore a man sitting the length of one knee from you, especially when he had such voluminous ears, and though Arthur made a valiant attempt at it, he had soon to abandon this in favour of grousing at Merlin for a myriad of grievous transgressions, the most pressing of which was his manner of sitting far too close, as if they were mates. This shortcoming was to become a theme when they laid down after passing round a hard cheese and some bread, Merlin in Arthur’s cloak, and Arthur in nothing at all, because his was the greater constitution; and whilst Arthur was working himself into the choicest bit of ground, with the least stones, Merlin suddenly rolled over, mummified within the cloak Arthur’s thoughtfulness had provided, and put his nose into Arthur’s neck.'

    The 'yes homo' we all deserved. A collection of one-shots righting the heterosexual wrongs of canon.
