    Summary

    Merlin defeated the creature easily. He turned away from his fallen foe and back to the boulder blockade he'd trapped Arthur behind. Too late, Merlin saw the king had found his own way out.
    Arthur didn't look angry. He didn't even seem surprised. Just hurt. Merlin froze when he realised Arthur was crying. The king hadn't seemed to notice it, his eyes lost and face void of emotion, but tear tracks lined Arthur's cheeks. Arthur didn't cry. It was a rule the king rarely disobeyed. "No man is worth your tears."
    Arthur discovers Merlin's magic. Now everyone he loves has betrayed him. He starts to blame himself and shut everyone out. He throws himself into being king. Meanwhile, Merlin repents for his mistakes and learns about Arthur's past. What is Arthur hiding? Can Merlin win back Arthur's trust?

    Summary

    In a land of prejudice, and a time of despair, the burden of keeping everyone alive rests on the shoulders of a young boy. His name… Merlin.

    Merlin finally loses it when Balinor dies in his arms. While the warlock drowns in guilt and sorrow, the end game shifts.

    A story in which Merlin’s mantra is “Destiny, prophecies, and Kilgharrah can shove it somewhere the sun doesn’t shine.”

    Summary

    Arthur had always trained to be the best. He did his work, then did some more and then more still. Yet, his father's eyes never glowed in pride. He was never... Good enough. Never strong or fast enough. Never Alpha enough. He had accepted it. Accepted, that, being born a beta, a beta *Prince* he'd have to work all that much more to prove his worth. He had. But why was it so hard?

    Merlin never had it easy. But he had his mam, he had his Will and screw the rest, really. Except then, out of the blue, Puberty hit. Now Merlin has it *worse*. Camelot is /not/ a smart place to be. For a secret sorcerer. For a secret, peasant sorcerer. For a secret, peasant, *Alpha* sorcerer. But, well, he'll just keep his head down, learn a healing trade and nothing bad will happen.

    or
    Uther's a dick, Gaius is a doormat for *his* king, Arthur suffers needlessly and Merlin pulls a Merlin because he's Merlin and cannot be anything else but what he is.

    Summary

    Kilgarrah has been cryptic at best and infuriating at worst. Merlin's not sure what he expected, but surely the great lizard could've given him a heads up that he'd start growing SCALES.
    That's not the least of it, and he can't exactly ask for a work leave to get his brand new claws in order. What's he gonna tell Arthur? And is it going to be even a little bit believable?

    Summary

    After waking up in the dungeons and finding Agravaine has used a sorcerer to steal the kingdom, an unknown sorcerer offers to help reclaim it with a spell. His only demand? The help of someone who is truly virtuous and pure! (a virgin)

     

    Merlin consents, but he views it as more of a responsibility and a chore than sex, and his concept of it is very clinical, and it does not go into any detail.

    Summary

    “That’s a relief,” Merlin said, running a hand up Gwaine’s arm as if to check for himself. “We probably should have seen that coming though.”

    “Eh, what can I say, neither of us are Seers.”

    Merlin laughed. “That is true. At the very least, we should not do that again -”

    He turned back to his bed.

    His face fell.

    “Oh no.”

    Summary

    Arthur is confused, very upset, and nothing is alright anymore, thank you very much.

    Because you see, despite the image that he tries to present—emphasis on the word ‘try’, there, according to his knights—he does care an awful lot about his people, especially his one particular person that happens to be able to say an awful lot without saying anything.

    Merlin. He’s talking about Merlin, in case you hadn’t noticed.

    Summary

    Directionless, grieving, and convinced he is guilty of all the deaths caused by the dragon's attacks, Merlin struggles to navigate life as a servant in a kingdom where his mere existence is illegal and--he is beginning to fear--likely to remain so forever.

    "If Kilgarah had lied about his promise to not attack Camelot, didn't that make the rest of it--the prophecy, the purpose for his magic, a future where magic was free--a lie too?"

    Summary

    Arthur scrambled back in surprise as a figure sat up, shaking broken moss and bark out of its hair and sputtering nonsense.

    It was a human.

    Or Arthur thought it was a human. It had black hair, pale skin, and big ears.

    His eyes opened.

    They were made of a brilliant gold that looked as though it had survived a hundred centuries and could survive thousands more. Wisdom, unspeakable. Power, unbreakable.

    He was fae.

    “Why are you dollopheads all staring at me? Is there something wrong with my ears?”

    OR

    Merlin claims they've met before, but Arthur doesn't remember the pesky fae at all. He also can't figure out why he isn't dead yet or how to get the idiot to quit following him around.

    Summary

    Merlin comes to the conclusion that to protect Morgana from discovery, she should learn some control over her magic. That way, her magic won’t act up and expose her, and she’ll be safer. It was the same for him, after all. And since she is under the impression his childhood friend Will was a sorcerer, it wouldn’t be too strange for him to know a thing or two about magic. Surely he can teach her, right?
