    Summary

    In a society where all sorcerers are enslaved and stripped of their magic, 12-year-old Merlin is sold away from his mother to serve Arthur Pendragon, son of the wealthy Uther Pendragon of Pendragon Industries. Though the life of a slave is harsh and taxing, Merlin just might find comfort and even friendship in his new home. And Arthur may discover that the system he's always accepted may not be as simple as he thought. Can the two of them bridge the social gap and change their world for the better?

    (No Merthur, just lots of close friendship. Eventual Arthur/Gwen I think, but it won't be the focus. Contains abuse and violence towards slaves, although nothing too graphic. I'll add appropriate tags as I go.)

    Summary

    Trying to rule is a troubling thing. Ever since Merlin had been whisked away to a different kingdom by a strange, but all in all nice mage, with no one but Gwaine and Mordred as familiar faces, he had been poked and preened at. The only problem was that Merlin had absolutely no idea why. Something about being the son of the late Crown Prince Balinor? Since when was the supposedly Last Dragonlord a Prince? And why does Merlin have to rule in his stead; surely there must be someone else more suited for the job?

    Summary

    -
    The Pendragons were moving. Again. They’d moved so many times over the years, it didn’t bother them anymore. But when Arthur and Morgana stepped out of the preppy town car, they were not greeted with the usual luxury condo in the city, but an old brick manor covered in vine and surrounded by forest.

    Arthur soon learns the house is not as empty as he thought and he realizes that he is not so eager to leave this time.

    Summary

    I made my voice thin. “ ‘Someone like you’ what the hell is that supposed to mean?”

    Of course, he did not notice my thinly veiled annoyance.

    “You know,” he leaned closer to me, a twinkle in his blue eyes. His voice was a soft whisper-like silk. “Someone who's very cute..

    Merlin just wanted a place to read. He didn't mean to get stuck on the side of the ship dangling above open waters or ask to get saved by a beautiful prat.

    Summary

    Arthur was born of magic. Scared and unsure of how to use his power and a father who hates all that is magic, will he and his new friend Merlin be able to learn and co-exist in a world that was made of magic?
    Who will magic call her own in the end?

    Excerpt:
    “Can magic corrupt a person?” Arthur hated how weak he sounded, but it is truly something he didn’t understand and he wanted to know the truth.
    “Is a sword evil or good?” Merlin countered the question slightly. He knows that Arthur needs to see that magic is neutral that it is the wielder who manipulates it.
    “Neither.” Arthur gave Merlin an unsure look.

    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 doesn't talk about his father. People usually don't understand why he's gone "no contact" with Uther. After all, it's not like he was beaten or neglected, so what's the problem?

    But Merlin doesn't judge.

    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.

    There are slightly graphic descriptions of wounds and such. There's not a lot but some people might find it a bit squeamish.

    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
