    Summary

    Aang knew those swords. He’d seen them every day, felt the warm, if rough, presence of their owner in all his hardest moments and coldest flights. He was a strong figure, gentle in his own way. A Firebender who still used swords.

    Summary

    "You can take Daisy out to fetch the cloak-"

    "How do you know that?"

    Arthur closed his eyes, expression riddled with irritation before turning to look at Merlin expectantly.

    "Know what?"

    “The mare I use. You know I call her Daisy? I never told you that." Merlin explained. Arthur stared for a few moments. He could see the flicker of emotions pass easily over him. Anger, annoyance, exasperation, indignance, and finally acceptance...AKA the Five Stages of Grief (Pendragon Edition).

    "You talk to the horse.” He pointed out. Merlin narrowed his eyes.

    “I whisper to the horse."

    "...am I supposed to not hear it?” Arthur asked. Merlin wondered how likely it would be that he also heard him whispering magical spells if he heard him murmuring to the bloody horse. “Also, only you would choose such a ridiculous name.” He muttered. Merlin swallowed. This wasn't a problem at all, right? Right.

    Or

    Merlin knows Arthur well. Better than he knew himself apparently. What he hadn't expected was for Arthur to know his servant just as well... This causes problems. (also known as "The Time Merlin Had a Mental Breakdown Over Arthur Being a Normal Human")

    Summary

    “You really do have a soulmate.” Arthur said with a frown and Merlin shrugged. “That might be a problem.”

    "Can’t stand anybody but you having a shot a true love?” Merlin asked flatly. Arthur wrinkled his nose.

    “No, idiot. Spirit animals don’t get along unless they belong to their soulmate. If my bird sees your hideous lion-“

    “He is quite dashing, thank you. Besides, your bloody bird is too loud-“

    “My bird is just trying to do me a favor and tune you out!” Arthur snapped and took a long breath “The point is they can’t be around each other. So unless you want Emmy to pluck out this lion’s eyes I suggest you tell him to bugger off.” He snapped. Merlin was inclined to tell Arthur to bugger off himself, but was immediately distracted by one word.

    “Emmy?” He repeated and smiled. “You did name him.”

    Or

    In a time of myth and a land of magic, your soulmate’s spirit animal looks after you (even after you meet your soulmate). Arthur and Merlin are oblivious fools. We know this. That doesn’t change here.

    Summary

    Arthur could see his father glaring down - face red and eyes narrowed as he looked at Merlin with clear distaste.

    "Once this over, sorcerer...I’ll burn you."

    "You’ve already tried that," Merlin’s voice answered and Arthur had to bite his fist to keep from making any noise. “You need to accept you can’t kill me… Hand me that blanket, please.”

    “I’m sure there must be some method… Beheading?”

    “No, we tried that.”

    “Hanging?”

    “I just sort of... Swung there, remember?”

    There was another pause.

    “I should have made you keep that dragon below the castle so I could feed you to it.”

    “Kilgharrah? He won’t eat me, but if you want to torture me than making me listen to his nonsense for an hour might do it.” Merlin said and there was a soft sigh from the other end of the room. “I’m glad you agreed to help me though. Usually I have to do the grunt work of saving Arthur myself.”

    “I can’t wait to kill you.” 

    Or

    Uther finds out about Merlin’s magic, but can’t seem to kill him. Merlin is just trying to protect Arthur. They become a begrudgingly effective duo. Arthur doesn't understand why they think he isn't noticing this.

    Summary

    Arthur tried to find words to express his utter, complete, absolute disbelief of the situation, but nothing seemed to come out. Finally, Merlin took over.

    "So let me get this straight," he said slowly "A goddess came from the sky...Told you that you had a destiny to, um, help this Emrys-"

    "Actually," Lancelot cleared his throat "She requested I serve as an ambassador between Emrys and Arthur."

    Merlin stared. 

    "Right..." He frowned "So, uh, she told you to do that and...Gave you a chicken to close the veil between worlds?" 

    Percival looked at the pile of feathers with a grimace as he nudged them away with the toe of his boots. 

    "Yeah, that about covers it." Lancelot said and shrugged "My lord, does this mean you’re going to kill me?" He asked, turning to Arthur. "Because I’m pretty sure this this crystal ball has magic in it." 

    Arthur wished he would have thrown himself in that damned veil when he had the chance.

    Or 

    Instead of sacrificing himself to the veil, a goddess of the Old Religion decides to use Lancelot for the greater good of the prophecy. Lancelot...Decides to take a different route.

    Summary

    For his first thirteen years, Zuko was raised in a palace. And yet somehow, it's the three years outside the Fire Nation that seem to count more – at least to the palace staff, who act like he's been raised by fox-wolves.

    At first, this only annoys Zuko.

    Until he begins to think that the Fire Nation needs more than a formerly-banished prince.

    Summary


    The moment he's been told is coming is upon him, the final judgment. There are two paths, two choices left to him. He can kill his father, the ultimate betrayal, and become Snoke's perfect apprentice. Or he can take a risk, come home, and become a part of something he thought he'd left long ago.

    He makes the second choice.

    And that changes everything.

    Summary

    “They say you tried to kill the Firelord,” Hakoda says. "Why?"

    Zuko doesn’t know how to answer. Because I hate him. Because I love him. Because he wants to see the world burn. Because he knotted one hand in my hair and cupped flames against my face with the other.

    Because my mother is dead.

    Because my uncle is dead.

    Instead, he shrugs tiredly and says: “Someone has to.”

    Summary

    What if Merlin just helped Morgana? What if Merlin told Arthur about his magic? What if everyone ignored the vague-doomsday-prophesising-dragon's advice?

    In which Merlin makes a very different decision in 'The Nightmare begins', leading to a different ending altogether. Enjoy! :D

    Summary

    “They say Emrys tamed the great dragon of Camelot and sired the white dragon of Albion-”

    “Sired?” Gwaine interrupted “This Emrys fellow is going around siring dragons? How exactly is that happening? Sex with other dragons?” He asked and despite the situation, Merlin flushed. The man in question blinked, looking equally baffled by the question. From the corner of his eye, Merlin could see Arthur pinching the bridge of his nose.

    “Uh…I actually don’t know.”

    “But you’re Emrys,” Merlin reminded the imposter with a sigh “You don’t remember siring any dragons?”

    “I said it was an off day!” The man complained, trying to cross his arms despite being upside down. Merlin took a long breath. Lancelot had already walked away, but that did nothing to hide his howling laughter.

    Or

    The knights keep hearing various (dramatic) rumors about the great and mighty Emrys. Everyone is such a gossip. Merlin is trying not to have a heart attack. Lancelot is loving life.

    Summary

    When a noble visits Camelot with her servant-turned-lover, Merlin thinks he and Arthur may actually have a chance. But when Arthur uses the visit as inspiration to instead court Gwen, Merlin develops a tickle in his throat. Then a cough. Then flower petals.

    Beltane is a time for celebrating new life and new births, but Merlin will be lucky to survive until the festival, since the only cure for Hanahaki is to have one’s love returned…and Arthur doesn’t love him.

    Summary

    "Stiles, I'll clear up your confusion about the position. Derek here needs someone to live with him. He's a difficult person to live with, so I won't sugarcoat that. But his responsibilities at the company right now make it impossible for him to actually take care of himself and his home. That would be your job," Laura explained.

    Both Stiles and Derek objected at the same time.

    Summary

    “Even before the pack joined together, Scott was trying to protect you. And he still is trying to protect you, even if it means leaving you out of all this.”

    Stiles does roll his eyes at that. “Yeah, but it didn’t work did it. I was still involved, and so was my Dad. We were nearly killed by Matt, and then Gerard.”

    “My point is, people change. Relationships aren’t always perfect. Scott's tried to kill me before."

    Stiles raises an eyebrow. "So, you’re saying that someone trying to kill you is just a small flaw in a relationship?"

    “We’re werewolves.” Derek answers with a shrug, as if that was a perfectly good explanation.
