    Summary

    Kidnapped and banished at a young age, Merlin is a prince without a crown or kingdom. Though raised with magic and sword by his side, he faces a tumultuous path that takes him to Camelot and brings with it a destiny he never believed in. But at every turn he faces the consequences of his actions, unwilling as they might be, and his two secrets—magic and his dusty title— have never been close to tearing apart the life he built for himself in Camelot until a letter finds its way into Arthur's hands.

    And the two lives Merlin has led begin to bleed together.

    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

    “Merlin,” Arthur gasped softly, shivering at the cold air coming through his window, “You shouldn’t be here… it’s not safe—last time you were almost ca—”

    “Shhh,” Merlin hushed him as he walked over to the bed. He climbed onto it and sat beside Arthur, reaching up and cupping his face.

    “I missed you…” He whispered, a soft, adoring look in his eyes that made Arthur melt.

    “I… Missed you too…"

    OR

    Prince Merlin of Lledrith, son of King Balinor and Queen Hunith, met Prince Arthur of Camelot (of Uther and Ygraine), during a meeting between the Kings to discuss alliances.

    Things went downhill with the Kings. Balinor was king of a land of magic and dragons & their lords, Uther a king who fought to wipe out all magic… While a hatred formed between the Kings, neither noticed a bond forming between their sons.

    Merlin and Arthur got off on a rocky start, but after leaving for a ride in the woods, they hit it off rather quickly, even with Arthur knowing about Merlin’s magic.

    Now, they struggle to hide their relationship from their parents while trying to find a way to get their fathers to compromise on an alliance.

    Summary

    The Dragon Lords of Essetir had used their powers to establish trade routes with even the furthest lands, bringing spices, silks, jewels, all sorts of fantastic and fascinating things. All of which Camelot could only buy from Essetir. For many years, it had made them the most prosperous kingdom in all of Albion. That was, until the purge. Each year, more of Camelot's citizens arrive at the border camps, fleeing persecution for their magic. And each year, Ealdor and the other border villages need more help to support those in need.
    But could King Arthur's string of failed political marriages provide Prince Emrys of Essetir with a way to save the citizens of both kingdoms?

    Summary

    It will have to be cleaned lest he risk infection, but it is certainly nowhere near life threatening.

    “I’m fine, boy.” Balinor says with a rough smile, “I’m fine.”

    Summary

    The thing was, he hadn't meant to. Kiss her, that is. But he had and now she was staring at him like she'd found horse dung on her shoes. "You cannot be my true love," she sneered. Merlin was, honestly, more concerned with the possible removal of his head should her father find out.

    History has always been this: the Pendragon and the Dragonlord. Let's take a moment to think about our forefathers.

    Balinor and Uther take a moment to think about the future.

    “Did you hear Gaius got engaged?”

    Summary

    Merlin sighed loudly—enough to silence the crowd—and stood up. “Guards, seize Arthur Pendragon.”

    “Is that necessary?” Balinor inquired dryly.

    Merlin ignored him. He tossed up a druidic rune stone he'd made for this particular arsehole.

    As said numpty sprinted past the stage, the stone exploded and shrouded him in purple smoke.

    Arthur disappeared. What remained was a bear blinking at his own nose.

    Summary

    I wrote a follow up where Merlin gets to try again and keep his people this time! Because the first one was so depressing.

    This is also dark though, fair warning.

    Summary

    Canon Au - Balinor was arrested in Ealdor, and taken back to Camelot. Instead of executing him, he is locked up deep inside the caves under Camelot.

    18 years later, Merlin shows up. Instead of letting him continue with his destiny, however, Kilgharrah tells him to 'find Balinor'. Merlin has no idea what this means until he overhears Uther telling Gaius to prepare some supplies for him to 'take down to Balinor'. Merlin follows Uther, and discovers that there is indeed someone under the castle. Unaware of how they are related and hoping for some new company in his dark, lonely cell, Balinor becomes Merlin's mentor, and destiny begins to change its course.
