    Summary

    Merlin flees his hometown for the big city and crashes with Gwen, his friend from university. As he settles in, he meets Gwen's new girlfriend Morgana, gets on the wrong foot with Morgana's ass of a brother, and finally tries to become a functioning adult.

    Only, the bad dreams he's been having are getting worse, and the voice he keeps hearing in his head is getting louder...More than that, it seems like his new roommate may not just be the depressed, rich pretty boy he first appears to be. That there is something that lies beneath the surface of the city and the fragile understanding Merlin has of himself, his world, and the people around him.

    Maybe one person in particular.

    Lots of knight content, Merlin is a bit of a traumatized bitch, destiny is bullshit etc.

    Summary

    "Aw, if you needed help using your inkwell, you could have just asked, Princess. You didn't need to kick a chair over it." Arthur opened his mouth to respond, but promptly, shut it, understanding dawning on his face. "You little…I had work to get done, you idiots!"

    Summary

    Merlin really shouldn’t be surprised anymore.

    Whenever his life starts looking like it might be taking a turn for the better, fate finds a way to send him spiralling in another direction with nothing to hold onto. It’s happened more times than Merlin can count, from having to leave Ealdor the first time to freeing Kilgharrah from Camelot’s underground cell. Magic and fate, it seems, is just unable to leave him alone.

    So yeah, nothing should really surprise him anymore.

    Although he doesn’t see a way anyone could have expected this.

    Summary

    After a rather peaceful year with not much happening, Harry "Evans" should have known things wouldn't stay that way as a couple of days before the final of the Quidditch World Cup, his mother receives a terrible vision: her sister Morgause is working with Riddle and she's figured out who Harry's parents really are

    With that troubling news and with the Death Eater attack on the final, Harry and his group of friends are understandably shaky as they enter Hogwarts once again for their fourth/sixth/third year. Even there, they don't have peace as Dumbledore announces the start of the Triwizard Tournament and Harry's name gets picked out

    Harry thought things couldn't get more complicated when old faces from the past start to reappear, making this the most interesting year yet

    BFG: Uh oh
    Hot Knight: YOU HAVE A MOTHER FUCKING SORE THROAT?
    Merls: relax, I didn't give him a blow job

    Summary

    When Merlin barges into the council chamber to declare himself a sorcerer and save Gwen from execution, no one believes him. So he does magic, obviously. Now, he needs to fulfill his gods-be-damned destiny while roughing it in the woods. But first, he needs to figure out what's poisoning the water.

    What follows is a mess of treason, underground sorcerer societies in the heart of Camelot, DIY home construction, faeries, talking Griphons, and all the joy I think the characters deserved just for existing. And some angst. Just a little bit.

    Splits from season 1 episode 3 of the series ("The Mark of Nimweh")

    Summary

    Arthur is safe; he had saved Arthur. His duty is done.

    That’s why he doesn’t see the arrow coming.

    +

    Or, Merlin saves Arthur from his fate at Camlann. Under any other circumstance he might ask for the rest of the week off. Unfortunately for him, it seems like an arrow in the back will have to do.

    Summary

    Book 1 of Everlast, A BBC Merlin Fanfic
    No one can know their destiny.
    Not even those destined to protect the fates of others.
    Merlin's arrival in Camelot sets off a chain of events that sets him down the path to becoming the Greatest Sorcerer to Ever Walk the Earth and to aid Arthur Pendragon in becoming the Once and Future King.
    But he can't do it alone.
    Emrys is destined to ensure Arthur becomes the Ruler of Albion. But it's Nimieria who is destined to ensure that he succeeds.
    There will be no Albion without Arthur. Arthur will fail without Merlin. But Merlin will fail without Rylee.
    Destiny is trifling, but it is so much better when you have someone who loves you to help you fight the powers of destiny.

    Summary

    Do you want multiple magic reveals, A narrator whose only job seems to be sarcasm, and a plot that keeps Lance alive? Well. Here you go I guess—

    -—-

    Gwaine found himself in very unique situations whenever near to Merlin.

    (Yes. Seeing Merlin drag dead people into their graves is a unique situation.)

    -—-

    "Uh?" Lancelot said. He directed to continue.

    "This isn't.." Merlin gestured with a hand to the body on the floor. 

    He'd been dragging it. It was exactly what it looked like.

    -—-

    though I am trying my best to stay on track with what actually happens in Merlin, there are huge empty spaces in-between seasons and sometimes episodes that I cannot, as a singular human, fill properly. Expect divergence from the canonical plot, including and not limited to Lancelot being alive because I wrote this strangely without watching Merlin for a while and did not think the actual death of Lancelot was as early as it was. Thank you for listening in on my TED talk

    Summary

    “This is the last time,” Merlin says, and raises his head to look at the sky he hadn't seen in a thousand years.

    The stars, unmoving and unaffected, watch the events below them unfold. Merlin wishes he was one of them.

     

    Or: Merlin is propelled back in time against his will. He's doing fine, really, at least until a certain knight crashes back into his life.

    Summary

    There were several long moments of tense silence as the gravity of the situation sunk in. Merlin had used magic, and Arthur had been awake. Arthur had seen.

    When Arthur finds out Merlin has magic, at first, he’s angry, then he feels betrayed, then torn—ultimately he doesn’t know what, exactly, to do with his manservant. Of course, he could never hurt Merlin, could he?

    Set in the middle of season 2 just before The Nightmare Begins, Arthur learns about Merlin's magic. This story shows several select episodes, as well as our own scenes following the canon narrative from the perspective of Arthur knowing about Merlin’s magic.

    Summary

    Arthur dies.

    Camelot burns.

    And yet, despite it all, Merlin survives.
    He persists, long after his friends have perished, experiences the rise and fall of empires, watches man walk on the moon- but Sherlock Holmes?

    Meeting him may cost Merlin everything (Including, predictably, his sanity).

    Or: Merlin decides to move to inner city 20th Century London to pull his life back together. Instead, he meets John Watson and Sherlock Holmes and- well let's just say his life gets a lot more interesting then he had planned on.

     

    [The mature rating is mostly for some more heavy handed crime scene and murder descriptions, as well as some focus on mental health. Don't worry though! We add warnings in the start-of-chapter notes, and mark parts to skip.

    It isn't nearly as serious as the tags suggest, we promise there’s loads of fun stuff in here too to balance out the angst (like ample sass and sarcasm; this is a Sherlock Merlin crossover, after all)]

    Summary

    Summary

    I've been in a standstill with my other fic, so I decided to pick my favorite meet-ugly prompts (from tumblr user veronicabunchwrites) to get the creative juices flowing again. Or just to have fun until I figure out where to go with my other story.

    Anyway, feel free to expand on any of these for yourself; I only plan on this being a series of one-shots, so if any pique your interest, have fun!
