    Summary

    When destiny was averted long ago, the powers that were to be given to Morgana Pendragon instead went to her half-brother. Years later, Merlin arrives in Camelot to a very different Prince Arthur. Destinies are woven and broken as the two face foes both unknown and close to home, including Arthur's father himself. Will Albion ever come to pass?

    Summary

    A sorcerer burns at the Pyre.
    And as always, Arthur can only watch. He had long closed his heart from such sights.
    What breaks his heart is seeing the people he loves hurt from such moments. Such as Merlin.
    But there is more to the boy than Arthur thinks. And soon he sees the entire day unfold once more.
    This time - from a different perspective.

    Summary

    “It’s – it’s just not right,” he hadn’t slurred, taking another sip from his goblet, “sure he’s the King, but he’s my father too! Can’t he put that aside for a single second?”

    “I think”, his manservant said delicately, “that sometimes Uther forgets that he can separate Arthur, Crown Prince and Knight from Arthur, his son.”

    Merlin’s face did another emotion, and Arthur took another swig.

    Summary

    It wasn't supposed to end like this.

    Merlin was supposed to protect Arthur until he united all of Albion, not be burned at the stake by his sadistic father.

    He was supposed to serve him until the day both men died.

    How did it end up like this?

    Summary

    “I love him.”, Arthur said this before he had a chance to wince at his words. The moment froze between them. Arthur had so many regrets, he would love to just fling himself out of the window right now. But then Merlin's sacrifice really was in vain.

    “You what?”, Uther's eyes were wide in shock. Maybe a little disgust at the prospect of a noble liking a servant.

    Arthur swallowed down his pride. He had just thought about what was more important than pride and honor. He could make this sacrifice. 'For Merlin.', he thought.
    Because life is always more important. Arthur closed his eyes to brace himself for what he was going to say next.
    Just so he wouldn't have to see his father's reaction.

    “He's my consort.”, he added and almost broke at his own words. Lying was always hard. But nothing had ever compared to this.

    Summary

    Arthur Pendragon is at an all-time low: he's still suffering from the day he nearly dueled his father to the death, his sword arm has been wounded so grievously he may never fight again, and, worst of all, every last soul in Camelot and the kingdoms beyond have had magic forced on them overnight. Now Arthur must contend with the chaos of magic run rampant, his father's dangerous instability, Morgana's increasing distance, catching Merlin in more lies than he can count, and the magic that is now threatening to consume him—all while searching for a way to break the curse before it consumes them all.

    It's not going to be easy: Arthur grapples with a destiny he's not sure he can handle, and a past he'd rather forget—and if he wants to save his people, he must be prepared to confront hard truths and harder choices. It's a trial by fire, one that risks destroying everything Arthur has left to hold dear should he fail. But with enough courage, enough understanding, and maybe just a touch of magic, there's nothing he can't face.

    Summary

    Arthur wonders what it is of human nature that compels them to deal the worst blows against those they love, or to return to that which they know will cause them pain. Whatever it is, he is no different.

    Summary

    “Y’know Arthur, you can’t keep going on like this,” Merlin said. It was as good a time as any to finally get into the messy stuff.

    “I can and I will, Merlin,” Arthur said, lifting the wine again in defiance. 

    “Stop- stop with that bloody bottle,” Merlin tried to swipe the liquor. “You’re already drunk enough as it is.”

    Arthur kept the glass infuriatingly out of Merlin’s reach in his opposite hand. Usually Merlin found a drunk Arthur hilarious, but this time he couldn’t focus on anything but the cold pit in his stomach.

    “I will be drunk enough when I say I’m drunk enough….” Arthur took another swig and nodded silently for a moment. “Okay now I’m drunk enough.”

    Merlin snatched the bottle and put it far out of Arthur’s reach.


    Arthur Pendragon is not taking his father's death and subsequent Kinghood as well as he thought he could, but he can't very well let the whole kingdom know it. And the whole kingdom just so happens to literally mean every single person, including his friends. Luckily, Merlin is having none of it and with a tip from Gwen that maybe Arthur isn't doing very well that night, he goes to comfort the stubborn prat if it's the last thing he does.

    Summary

    Merlin would have expected his magic would be revealed in some epic life or death scenario.
    Not for something so mundane.

    “You know what. Yes. I do confess I have magic.”, Merlin said. And suddenly the room was silent. Honestly, why were they surprised? He was just condemned to death for sorcery.[...]
    "No. Gaius didn't know.. [....] In fact, I've been very careful hiding my secret from all of you. [...]
    Which is why this is the stupidest thing I have EVER heard!”, Merlin shook of the knights hand, as he stepped forward to the king. Like a mad man. To be fair, he was a little mad.

    “Burned... for heating tea.”, Merlin shook his head.
    [...] "How fucked up is that?!"

     

    Alternatively: what if Merlin was actually condemned to be executed but just decided to -not let them do that.

    Summary

    Arthur's wings were magnificent: most of his feathers were a beautiful pure white of a white goshawk, except his primaries, which looked like they had been dipped in molten gold. His impressive wingspan would unfurl to its enormous length of eighteen feet, and they would launch him high into the air, until he felt like he could touch the clouds, before swiftly returning him to earth.

    It was a shame that only one person with matching wings could claim the title of Arthur's soulmate. Because Arthur suspected that he was beginning to fall for his dark-haired, blue-eyed, big-eared manservant. But Merlin wasn't his soulmate. He couldn't be.

    Because Merlin had no wings at all.

    Summary

    Arthur drew breath as Ygraine drew her last.

    It is this which haunts Uther. It is this which he holds so cruelly close to his aching heart and this which rules his every action.
