    Summary

    This story takes place after the Series Finale!

    The Gillian family makes a trip out of the country once a year. This year is no different but with that tradition comes another one: Someone has to stay behind to play nursemaid. Jovana Hazel Gillian is the 'lucky' one this year and prepares for her summer to be filled with doing endless chores for a cranky, grumpy, old and ancient hooligan! Life isn't fair sometimes. But on the more positive side, there seem to be a few cool places to explore, friends to make, and to top it all off somebody seems to be stealing goats! Perhaps she can solve a mystery or two before summer's end?

    Meanwhile, we get a glimpse into a familiar Warlock's life and how he has played a role in keeping magic hidden all these years later. The time for magic will only come when Arthur is back and Merlin is determined to have everything right this time. Although Merlin doesn't age and feels terribly lonely at times there are moments of reprieve. Those moments seem to involve a certain surprise he keeps encountering over the centuries. He's not certain if it's a curse or a blessing. It's a mystery he'll have to solve.

    Summary

    Thenerdyindividual once said to me "wouldn't Arthur be so hot as a D&D barbarian?" And of course, as they are many times, was correct. It immediately gave me thoughts about what D&D class all the characters would be.

    So once upon a time, Merlin never made it to Camelot. He was kidnapped by Cenred and Morgause and they keep telling him how important he is - they won't understand he is no one really. But when Morgana joins them, he knows he has to flee, and he does incredibly dangerous magic to get away. He lands in the middle of a battlefield and is taken in. By Camelot. By Arthur Pendragon.

    And nothing will ever be the same. Destiny is calling, and heroes rise, and there is odd magic, and odder conversations, and the oddest thing of all - true happiness and falling in love.

    Summary

    They say not to put all your eggs in one basket, but Arthur only has one basket. He must somehow convince Camelot that Merlin - and, by extension, magic - deserves to be free on the actions of the warlock alone. Only, his subjects are difficult to sway, and his nobility harder. Meanwhile, he must battle his growing feelings for his manservant - and the fact that he doesn't only love Merlin.

    In which Merlin must fess up to everything he's ever done in front of all of Camelot, and he has to hope that his good deeds outweigh his evil ones. It has all come down to this.

    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

    (Yes, I changed my username. It’s still me!)

    Essentially a combination rewrite and sequel to my earlier work, Siren Song!

    Merlin and Arthur set out on a voyage to hunt down a siren that has been terrorizing a neighboring kingdom. They discover that they are the only ones unaffected by the siren’s song, causing a medley of chaos, self doubt, and confusion; all things must come to light in the end.

    Warning: excessive amounts of banter

    Summary

    Merlin still had Arthur’s mother sigil. The Dorocha had been defeated, neither Arthur nor Merlin was dead and yet Merlin still had it. Which was definitely wrong.

    Summary

    [One hunting trip. That’s all Arthur wanted. One trip that didn’t involve dangerous magical creatures or bandits or other non-traditional hindrances. For once he would like for his biggest problems to be a damp sleeping bag.
    But no, it could never be that easy. Arthur’s camp was long forgotten as he dangled from the claws of the dragon. He’d woken up to see a dark figure standing over him and the next thing he knew he was dangling hundreds of meters in the air with a pounding headache.]
    Or, Merlin is a dragonlord, the son of the dragonlord Balinor who rules over the dragons in the North. Arthur is the prince Merlin is instructed to kidnap. Balinor is the exasperated father and general who just wanted to legalize magic but accidentally set his son up with the child and heir of his greatest enemy.
    Whoops.

    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

    When Merlin gets accepted to a graduate program in Edinburgh, Arthur insists that they celebrate with a walking trip. The trip quickly becomes uncelebratory, however, when Merlin gets lost down a dark alley.

    Is the entire fic plot a shameless set-up for a magic reveal and talk-about-our-feelings fest? Absolutely, I'd expect no less from myself.

    Summary

    “Emrys will come!”

    Those words rang out across the courtyard. They seemed to go on and on, forever, stretching beyond the courtyard and the castle walls. They stretched out across all of Camelot to some foreign kingdoms, crossing vast forests, rivers, and villages.

    Arthur was sure the whole world heard the dying sorcerer.

    Summary

    There was a song Mamma used to sing at night to Merlin, after she’d tucked him under the old blankets. Merlin never paid much attention to the words, but the tune felt like home. Even if he was hungry, or hurt, or scared, once he was wrapped in the wool that was pulled up to his neck, he knew Mamma would look after him. Everything was okay, because she would always be able to keep him safe.

    Summary

    It isn’t great — Arthur’s very good at many things (although Merlin would never tell him) — but singing is not one of them. His voice is rather scratchy and rough and it seems to crack at different places, but Merlin doesn’t mind because this is Arthur, his Arthur. Arthur with his head back, singing as if he’s a rockstar. Arthur closing his eyes and swaying his hips as if he can feel the music, breathe it. Arthur with all the passion in the world, Arthur with his silly little dance moves, Arthur with his hair whipping and an unrestrained grin on his face.

    Arthur, a big, strong, masculine man, singing the Spice Girls in the middle of his room.

    OR:

    Merlin catches Arthur singing alone in his room and is... intrigued, to say the least.

    Summary

    Being a God is not without its issues. Especially if you’re a young God, living amongst humanity. Merlin has the power to will things into being, the problem is that he can’t quite control it for shite. Which means he has to be very careful about his wandering thoughts, so as to not will Arthur into oblivion or on his bed naked, legs parted and ready to-

    It’s just very hard to be a young God, servant to a pratish prince that has the ability to break his brain in either anger or horniness, to just not do whatever he feels like.

    Having all that power and needing to push it all the way down is very frustrating, Merlin feels like his head is going to explode. Both of his heads really.

    or

    Merlin is a very young (horny) God, not in control of his powers, and sadly, Arthur is infuriating and hot.

    Summary

    He tries to strain his ears, to figure out whether Arthur’s breath has evened out, if he’s actually fallen asleep, when Arthur interrupts his useless attempts, “This movie is ridiculous.”

    “You’re ridiculous.”

    Arthur completely ignores Merlin’s jab, and keeps complaining instead, “Giselle just starts randomly singing, and what? Everyone knows this fictional song? The only sane person in this movie is Robert.”

    “This is a disney movie, it’s supposed to be silly. Besides the world being a little magical is adorable and- oh god, does this make me the Giselle to your Robert? How absolutely romantic of us.”

    Summary

    When Merlin wakes up and Arthur is not by his side, he know that he's going to have to get him back. The bandits aren't the ones that should be scared of him, it's the king who should be for being such a reckless idiot and going to fight them alone instead of bringing Merlin with him.
