    Summary

    Merlin watches Arthur leave. He has to forcibly remind himself about what he can and cannot have; who and what he is. Thrice damned. Blessed to be alive, in Camelot, and at Arthur’s side. He needs nothing more.

    For now, Merlin has paperwork to do and more magical artefacts to buy back from the citizens of Camelot. He takes a couple of moments to reconstruct himself, reaching for some ambient magic and using it to stabilise his tired body and revitalise his mind.

    He can’t fall over when there is more work to do. When he opens his eyes, Merlin straightens his itchy court outfit and sets off to be the best Court Sorcerer he can be.


    The sequel to Soldier, Peasant, King where Merlin, now serving as Camelot’s Court Sorcerer, must weigh his personal wish to accept the king’s mutually-desired advances to court him against his professional duty: to help bring about and sustain Camelot’s Golden Age as prophesied and witnessed in the Crystal of Neahtid. Of course, the very same Crystal paints a future for him and Arthur as a harbinger of heartache.

    Summary

    What if Morgana's prophetic dreams had been much more useful, particularly early on? If she'd gotten enough spoilers (say, by viewing Seasons 2-5 in her dreams), could she have prevented her tragic future? Yet another redemption fic for Morgana, who deserves it.

    NOTE: This fic is Rated M. If sexual relations between consenting adults is upsetting to you, particularly when it involves women having agency over their own bodies and their sexual choices, neither this fic, nor "Le Morte d'Arthur," is for you. Slut-shaming women is not acceptable behavior; any more of that nonsense, and I'm turning off comments. Go shout at Sir Thomas Malory's grave, boys. He at least got paid for his writing.

    Summary

    Merlin's expectation in life was to be invisible and protect Arthur (and one day become the greatest warlock in the world and help bring about a magical era of peace, but that was irrelevant)

    But all of that changed when the Queen of the prophesized Albion comes to Camelot and reveals that Merlin is the prince of their small but magically adept country. He is pulled into court politics, etiquette lessons, and a long series of revelations about how much control he truly holds over his own future.

    Now, Merlin must find the balance between his duty, his destiny, and his heart.

    Summary

    When Morgana finds the mirror of Seledeth, that is to be locked away in the vaults of the castle, in the middle of the night, she is captivated by it.

    It only takes one touch and suddenly Morgana and Arthur are transported to another realm, where magic is not outlawed and Merlin...is a prince? With magic?

    And apparently they are in a secret relationship?

    But in this other realm, Arthur is betrothed to Mithian.

    Yes, Mithian, who is in love with Gwen.

     

    What could possibly go wrong?

    Summary

    Something is wrong with the lake. It’s a long accepted fact among local residents that something about it is not normal. It looks normal, a picturesque body of water by the road with a little island and some old ruins rising up from the centre. The bloke the council sent for the environmental survey said it was normal. Everything around it is normal. But the locals know it’s not.

    Merlin and Arthur are back together, so shouldn't they have a happily ever after? Not exactly. Merlin is dealing with the shock and guilt of having Arthur back after centuries of waiting while Arthur is struggling to adjust to the 21st century. Plus there's that whole "Albion's need is greatest" thing to deal with and Merlin really needs to get round to telling his boyfriend about everything he missed while he was busy getting knocked out or enchanted. They could really use some help. Lucky for them it's on it's way.

    Sequel to Dear Camelot
    Can be read as standalone, but there will be some direct references to that work in here.

    Summary

    Nel bel mezzo della cattura di una creatura magica, Merlino viene trasportato in un mondo in cui Camelot ospita migliaia di utilizzatori di magia. Re Uther non si trova da nessuna parte, Arthur è di nuovo un principe e la regina Ygraine siede sul trono.

    Merlino pianifica di tornare alla sua realtà, alla sua Camelot. Per farlo, tuttavia, deve mettere le mani su informazioni che si trovano all'interno di un castello protetto da potenti stregoni. L'unico modo per accedervi è partecipare all'esame di apprendistato ed essere scelto come apprendista di un utente magico della corte di Camelot. Dovrebbe essere facile. . . Giusto?

    Le cospirazioni sono in corso e Merlino è sicuro che, in qualche modo, è o sarà coinvolto. Solamente la sua fortuna.

    Summary

    Arthur is the Prince of Wales and the heir to the British throne. Merlin... well, Merlin is the son of a Welsh chef. Thrown together by luck, or perhaps fate, they grow up in Buckingham Palace and become close friends, despite their differences.

    As an Alpha, royal duty calls for Prince Arthur to marry well and produce an heir with an Omega, once he has finished university and his military service. Merlin is left heartbroken at the thought, with a huge secret of his own - one that could see him forbidden from being with Arthur ever again.

    Set over nearly thirty years, this is the tale of Merlin Emrys and HRH Prince Arthur Pendragon, bound together by destiny, love, and just a little bit of magic.

    Summary

    The Kingdom of Avalon has fallen. Arthur finds himself the reluctant keeper of the fallen enemy prince.

    Destiny had somehow made a mistake.

    ***

    "You don't have to, you know," Arthur said. "Not all the time."

    "What?" came Merlin’s clipped response from the corner after a moment.

    Arthur turned around to face his captive. "Be this," he gestured at Merlin broadly. "Be defiant, brave....stoic....all the time. It is painful to watch."

    Merlin didn't answer. Arthur sighed.

    "Just....just....when that door closes, when we reach the end of the day. Just allow yourself to relax for just a while." Arthur tried on a small smile, holding his palms up in a gesture of surrender. "I promise I won't tell anybody."

    Summary

    “He cursed me. I’m coughing up flowers, Gaius—what other possible explanation is there?”

    “Well, there is—”

    “He was mad at me, it’s exactly something he would do. Infuriating, obnoxious, goddamned sorcerer that he is probably finds it funny to—”


    It is said that the sins of the father should not be cast upon the son. Unfortunately, a father's miscalculated bargain can still come back to haunt you—Arthur is twenty-one, has a kingdom to rule, and apparently, a magically binding marriage contract with the Prince of Escetir. Prince Merlin, who has magic, a dragon, great dislike for Arthur, and still no intention to back out of the contract.

    The worst part is, to a degree, Arthur understands—as a sorcerer, he wouldn't trust Uther Pendragon's son either. So he simply has to convince Merlin that he can be trusted, and the contract can be broken while they secure peace between Camelot and Escetir. It's a good plan.

    Right up until forces conspire against both their kingdoms, more secrets come to light, and Arthur starts coughing up flowers.

    Summary

    Merlin is in love with Prince Arthur. The only problem is that Arthur is in love with Guinevere.
    Arthur is head over heels in love with Merlin but is convinced the warlock is in love with Morgana, so Arthur is dating Guinevere to make them jealous. Merlin and Morgana aren’t in love, they just tend to pretend to make out to hide that they’re practicing magic together in secret

    Basically a fake dating au where both Merlin and Arthur are idiots (hence the "the love is requited, they're just idiots" tag)

    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

    In the midst of capturing a magical creature, Merlin is transported to a world where Camelot is home to thousands of magic-users. King Uther is nowhere to be found, Arthur is a prince again, and Queen Ygraine sits on the throne.

    Merlin plans to get back to his own reality, to his own Camelot. To do that, however, he must have access to information that is inside a shielded castle protected by powerful sorcerers. The only way in is to participate in the Apprentice Exam and be an apprentice to a magic-user included in Camelot's court. Should be easy . . . right?

    Conspiracies are afoot and Merlin just knows that, somehow, he is or will be involved. Just his luck.

    Summary

    Thirteen-year-old Merlin Emrys was captured while trying to rescue his father from the secret organization known as the Centre. A prison for magic users, it has been shrouded in secrecy for a hundred years. Five years later, his life is an endless cycle of torture, abuse, and failed experiments intended to harvest his magic for nefarious means. Trapped in a magic suppressing cell, unable to escape, he has almost given up. Then one day he looks up to see a familiar face on the other side of the glass and suddenly there is hope.
    The Pendragons assumed control of the Centre from the Parkers before Arthur Pendragon was even born. He has always sensed the evil that permeates the walls of the century-old Art Deco Style building. Now his father expects him to take an executive position at the Centre. Uther is all too happy to show him exactly what goes on within those dreaded walls and it makes Arthur sick to learn what his family legacy truly is. Then he is introduced to the Centre’s most prized possession, a dark-haired, blue-eyed boy who just happens to be the most powerful sorcerer to ever walk the earth.
