    Summary

    When Merlin realizes he's fallen for Arthur, the main thought that comes to mind is Gwen. He can't do that to her or himself. But as much as he hides his feelings, one step forward always feels like three steps back as Arthur gets brutally injured and tensions rise within the Pendragon family. To make matters worse, a witch has cursed the prince. Oh boy. Here we go!

    Summary

    On a scale of one to ten, Merlin would rate being married to Arthur a six and a half.
    The two made dinner almost every night together and Merlin always at least tried to remember to wash his dishes. More than half of these dinner's also involved Gwen. Actually, most of their relationship also involved Gwen and Merlin found it a bit annoying, but he was used to it by now.

    Summary

    “Where did you learn to do that?” Gwaine asked, following Merlin up the bank.
     
    “This is how normal people fish,” Merlin replied dryly. “Not trying to stab them with swords.”

    “This is a knife,” Gwaine retorted, sounding every bit as sulky as he felt.

    “Still, you didn’t catch a fish.”

     
    ------------------------------------------------------

    Gwaine saves a young Merlin from a beating and ends up with a new little brother to take care of on his travels.

    Or, what would Merlin be like if he had Gwaine influencing him over his formative years?

    Summary

    In another life, Arthur might’ve hesitated. In another life, the fear—actual, real fear—in the eyes of the man who has once been his father might’ve stalled his hand. But where his mother’s pleas to not let this knowledge change him might’ve made him hesitate, the sheer betrayal burning in Merlin’s eyes after Arthur was forced to reveal his secrets wrenches any hesitation right out of him.


    After Arthur found out about Merlin's magic, things are still tense between them. It's the worst possible time for the Witchfinder to arrive at court, but for all his worries, Arthur still could've never foreseen just how horribly it would go. He could've never foreseen all the things it would set in motion, and while there's the silver lining of how it brings him and Morgana closer, the chances of ever overcoming his guilt, of ever salvaging his and Merlin's relationship, seem almost non-existent. Almost.

    Summary

    Over a thousand years ago in the time of King Arthur, magic could be harnessed without a wand. Now, only those with strong enough cores are able to. Lily Potter, on the night of her murder, was able to cast such magics in order to protect her son. The feats of magic that were unleashed that night would affect the baby’s own magical core.

    That night a fifteen month old was gifted powers that hadn’t been seen since the time of Merlin. Now it’s time for him to go to Hogwarts. (Merlin himself might grow to have some opinions on this.)

    Summary

    In which Merlin and Arthur are trudging through the muddy woods.

    Or:

    Arthur groaned. “Of all the—” he started to complain, but the words froze on his lips as he shifted and his nose grazed Merlin’s. He hadn’t realised they were quite so close, but with his sudden awareness came the realisation that they were a tangle of limbs, their chests pressed heavily together, Merlin’s hand curled around Arthur’s waist where he’d grabbed hold to steady himself.

    Summary

    “Lance, there’s something I’ve got to talk about.” Arthur’s voice crackled over the line and echoed over the silent flat.

    “What is it, Arthur?” asked Lance calmly. “You alright?”

    “It’s Merlin. I think he’s hiding something from me.”

    -

    Merlin is an open book. Arthur doesn't believe that for a second.

    Summary

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

    ***

    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

    What if things went a little differently when Merlin saved Arthur?

    “Someone quickly! Get him to my chambers,” he heard Gaius shout.
    Merlin was starting to get delirious before a strong set of arms hoisted him up carrying him out of the hall. He faded in and out of consciousness hearing snippets of voices, Hurry Antidote Not enough, before he succumbed to the darkness.

    Or I gave everyone a couple extra brain cells, Uther was nice for 5 seconds before I put him six feet under, and Merlin was a bit OP and a gardener.
