    Summary

    “This may not be my world. But you are still mine. And I’m yours.”

    ***

    The prophesy fulfilled, Merlin struggles to come to terms with his failure, his long foretold destiny nothing more than a hopeless dream. Consumed by guilt and loss, he strikes a bargain with the Lady of the Lake.

    Thrown into a strange world, Merlin's quest to right the wrongs begins. But there are truths to be learnt. Maybe there's more than defying the prophesy.

    And maybe, Merlin's destiny is not what he's been led to believe after all.

    Summary

    "It was on yet another hunting trip that he found her, face pale and crimson pooling under each arm. Percival would later find a small knife under some moss next to her. Sweat covered her face and chest, leaving dark patches on her cotton dress."

    or

    A very angsty fic where the Knights find an injured girl in the forest and take her home to heal. Queer fluff with Gwen ensues. Big trigger warning, please read the tags.

    Summary

    Arthur survives the battle of Camlann but discovers that Merlin is a sorcerer when Merlin kills Morgana to save Arthur’s life. Feeling angry and betrayed, Arthur banishes Merlin.

    Five years later, in a war-torn Camelot, Arthur is finally ready to talk to Merlin, and they realize that they can only fulfill the prophecy together, side by side.

    The next morning they wake up in the past, in their young bodies.

    ~

    “Someone or something has sent us back in time, right to the beginning, with all our memories,” Merlin says, and it’s only now that it dawns him what that truly means. “Just imagine everything we could do, everything we could change for the better. We could make everything right this time.“

    Arthur hesitates for a moment. “Can we even change the future?“

    “Yes, I think we can”, Merlin answers with confidence and new-found hope in his voice.

    Summary

    Fifteen hundred years after Camlann, Arthur returns and Merlin is there to welcome him. Merlin has no idea why he's back, no idea if it's pure chance, or destiny, or something even greater -
    All he knows is that the one thing he has spent fifteen hundred years waiting for is finally happening... and he can't do this.

    ---

    “Years ago, you insisted on seeing the good in me before anyone else saw it -- insisted on seeing the good in me before even I, myself, saw it. And now--
    -- Now, Merlin, you won’t even look me in the eye. So, please, I am begging you. Tell me, Merlin. Tell me what’s changed.”

    Summary

    Arthur wants to choose his own adventure, pick his own destiny. Things keep getting in the way

    This story is for Arthur's bits of the story. Probably makes most sense if you read it after The song remains the same, but who am I to tell you what to do? I'm not Rhiannon.

    Summary

    In which, before The Purge, nobility often hired sorcerers to summon companion animals for their children. Though serving as confidants, these creatures' main purpose was to aide as councilors in matters of the heart. Or as Gaius would put it, "To force some sense into the most difficult of heirs lest they never keep a partner."

    But how does this explain that blasted fox in Arthur's chambers?!

    A soulmate AU of sorts featuring: a swan, a stolen breakfast, Merlin's unsolicited advice, and a besotted yet exasperated Gwen.

    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

    In order to go to his dream school, Merlin has to work as a staff member at the university's Ice Arena with Gwen, (a sweet, but badass nursing student) Mordred, (an pretentious, angsty e-boy) and George (an uptight hospitality major). Sounds easy right?
    Well... enter Arthur, the stuck up (and annoyingly attractive) captain of the ice hockey team, and things get a bit more interesting.

    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

    Merlin chose to save Mordred against the dragon's advice. He should have made the same choice for Morgana. In which Merlin is more than a little fed up of old men and old dragons telling him what to do, and gives Morgana some hope. Maybe it won't change the dark path she's destined to walk down... Or perhaps in doing so, Merlin saves all of Albion from her wrath. Featuring the emotional catharsis and continuity we were denied in canon and a systematic re-writing of what could have been

    Summary

    It's a day long trek to the nearest village. The vegetable patch is beside the house, the cow and the chickens a short walk through the forest away. Merlin is better with the sheep, Arthur with the chickens, but he'd be better with the sheep too if he had magic.
    Peals of laughter ring through the cottage in the evenings, fires crackle in the hearth, one hums as he makes soup and the other whistles while washing dishes, and they argue about who has to milk the cow.

    But nightmares still slink into their thoughts. Faded reminders of an old life make them flinch, and all the while there are swords hidden under the bed and spell books in the floorboards.

    Summary

    He looks away and instead meets Merlin’s gaze. Merlin quirks an eyebrow like he’s daring Arthur to say something, to challenge him. Arthur desperately wants to. There’s just something about Merlin, from his messy black hair to that snarky smirk to that skinny body that is somehow so fucking graceful it shouldn’t be legal, that drives him up a fucking wall. And Arthur knows Merlin feels the same about him, knows it the way he’s aware that the sky is blue or that his father is an arsehole.

     

    Or: Arthur and Merlin can't stand each other. Then they get roped into helping Lancelot and Gwen plan their wedding.

    Summary

     “You’re insane,” Merlin hissed under his breath. He grabbed Gwaine’s hand and intertwined their fingers. “Totally, completely, utterly insane. This won’t work.” 

    He used his free hand to straighten his tie before they entered the reception at the fancy hotel bar, where he knew he’d find every single person he worked with.  

    “Of course it’ll work. Now laugh as if I’ve said something funny,” Gwaine said through his teeth, a fake smile plastered on his face.

     

    OR: Merlin's friends get sick of his never-ending pining over his coworker Arthur and come up with a brilliant plan: If Merlin pretends to be dating his best friend, Gwaine, Arthur will realise he's in love with Merlin, too and they'll live happily ever after. There's no way this could go wrong... right?

    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.
