    Summary

    When Uther Pendragon gets a clue about the legendary dragon island, a place where dragons and the last kin of the dragon lords are said to live,
    he sends out his son and his knights to find it. And destroy it.
    The war path, however, did not calculate the storm that was about to come.
    And sooner than expected, Merlin and Arthur find themselves alone on the island.
    Faced with Merlin's past that only he is aware of. And secrets about Balinor, that should not have come to light this way.
    And to top it all of, Merlin is alone with Arthur. Who doesn't even know that he's already confessed.

    Oh yeah. And let's not forget the clusterfuck that Sir Leon has to deal with. :)

    Summary

    Merlin thought he was doing the right thing. He thought telling Arthur that magic had no place in Camelot he'd be able to save his friend. When he sees the mistake he made, he leaves Camelot. Unable to hand the burden of what he had condemned his friends to. Arthur, Gwen, Gaius, and the Knights of the Round Table seek out the Druids to find out everything they can about Merlin and his magic in hopes they can find their friend and bring him home.

    (Merlin left letters behind explaining why he had to leave. A majority of the story will be centered on everyone except Merlin as they learn about him and his sacrifices)

    Takes place after Season 5 episode 5, The Disir.

    Trigger warning!! References to attempted suicide, please be aware.

    Summary

    The dragon leaned forward. "Your destiny is to protect Uther Pendragon's heir, the one who will be the Once and Future King and unite all of Albion."

    Merlin blinked. "But . . . Uther doesn't have an heir."

    . . .

    In many Arthurian texts, Arthur is raised as a peasant by Sir Ector with no knowledge of his royal lineage. Let's bring that back, shall we?

    Summary

    Somehow Merlin was the best dice player he’d ever met. He would never admit it out loud, but Merlin was good. Really good. Too good. Merlin had to be cheating. Arthur didn’t know how and he didn’t know why, but he was going to figure out how the hell Merlin was cheating at dice if it was the last thing he did.

    Summary

    Morgana managed to carve her own way. She spoke her mind and dealt with the consequences. She held on to her fencing training even though it wasn't lady-like. She didn't want a lady in waiting, and so she managed to get rid of her. She didn't want her maid to prepare intricate hairstyles for her most of the time. She'd let her curls frame her face madly, which drove Uther to insanity, but he learned to live with it.

    Arthur was there through all of it. All the things they learned together.

    OR

    Morgana and Arthur are actual people with feelings, not caricatures of "bratty" royals. They grow up and become legends together, and they fall in love.

    Summary

    Well if there was ever any doubt the Witchfinder was a fraud, here it is. Why on earth would a sorcerer conjure toads out of his mouth? A goblin would just burn in fire and bodies in the water would make it undrinkable. On top of that, only three women saw it. While there are always plenty of people at the well or in the square. You would think these women had eaten bad mushrooms.

    Summary

    Even Arthur’s speech was all about the other. Merin this, Marlin that. He even let the servant act with such disrespect Uther had half a mind to have him flogged. The time he’d attempted, though, (another sign he should have seen) Arthur lost it on him. A strange sight as Arthur had been so obedient before…

    He risked earning the Kings wrath to save his manservant, sure that the punishment Uther wished to stick him with would kill him. Uther didn’t see the issue if it did. Before, at least.

    It made sense now.

    Arthur was in love with his servant.

     

    OR

     

    Uther overhears something he shouldn't, and it leads to him discovering the affair Arthur is having with his manservant.

    Summary

    Arthur doesn't talk about his father. People usually don't understand why he's gone "no contact" with Uther. After all, it's not like he was beaten or neglected, so what's the problem?

    But Merlin doesn't judge.

    When Arthur died, he met the triple goddess herself.
    She gifted him with truth, and a chance to re-weave the workings of fate.

    Summary

    Uther is not necessarily wise, whatever the title may say.
    He also is not oblivious, however.
    Perhaps it might have taken him longer than it could have to realise the true extent of his son's relationship with his manservant, but he got there.
    It had also taken him one minute at most to figure out who, exactly, Merlin was.

    Summary

    Arthur had finally put his finger on it.
    The thing that had made Merlin stand out, the thing that had intrigued him about the boy ever since the first time he’d met him. The thing that was going to get him killed… Merlin had magic. Not only had it, but used it freely all the bloody time. It was only a matter of time before someone saw him do it, and then they’d report him to the king and Merlin would be dragged out into the courtyard and executed.
    Well, not if Arthur had anything to do about it.

     
    Mid series one, Arthur, for once not being totally oblivious, discovers that Merlin has magic. The problem is, having magic gets people killed and Arthur very much prefers Merlin alive. It turns out making sure nobody sees Merlin do magic is rather a full-time job however...

    Summary

    Merlin has been teaching Morgana how to control and use her magic for almost one year, now. Everything is how they want it to be. Even Arthur and Gwen know.

    Uther's mind is a stubborn one, and the journey that follows is a tough hill to climb.

    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 grins at him, waves his chubby hand. "Father!" he says, because he knows he should be formal with his father. There is no Pa here, no Dad or Da.

    There's something shiny on his father's head. He points to it. "What's that?"

    "Prince Arthur!" hisses the woman holding him, but his father only chuckles. The woman relaxes, just slightly.

    "It's a crown, my son. One day, you will wear one just like it."

    Arthur tilts his head, curiously. "What colour is it?" He thinks it's grey, just a shade off of the silver of the swords. It's the same silver-grey as half of the household's shiny jewelry, a not quite true silver. He doesn't think he likes it.

    "It's gold," says his father. "There's a lot of gold here in Camelot, my son."

    Arthur nods his head, and labels that silver-ish colour gold in his mind.

     

    (Or: in a world where you can't see the colour of your soulmate's eyes until you meet them, Arthur can't see gold, and it makes his life as a prince much more difficult.)
