    Summary

    In this tired, rusted technological age, can the medieval concept of fate and destiny bring Arthur and Merlin back together again?

     

    Writer’s note: Apologies for any inconsistency in style! Been at this fic for a while. Excited to write a fic set in the year 4000 and something, where there's a medieval king roaming a world filled with hovercars that are very dangerous, neon, metal and robots, etc. If anyone would like to help edit my inbox is super open!

    Summary

    Arthur awoke from death as though it were a thirteen-century long dream. Slowly, his memories return to him as he makes the journey to find shelter. He falls into the care of a man who is unlike Merlin in nearly every way... save his face and his air. He's even taken up a wife. Soon, Arthur starts to remember more aspects of his previous life, while Merlin seems to have all but forgotten his.

    What will happen when Arthur starts to make him remember the time before?

    Summary

    What if… Throughout the centuries, the magic in Merlin grew? Like, every sorcerer/witch and so on has a limit for growth yeah? Some level that they reach and that’s it. No more power for you. But Merlin /doesn’t/ since he’s not /with/ magic but instead /is/ magic. So. Like. It grew with him and he learned more and more but he’s all alone right? Has no Anchor. So he’s doing all he can, spreading the knowledge, educating people on and about magic and for a while it works. Magic is accepted, taught, even revered all over the world. The world prospers. Peace and harmony grows. Yeah, sure, there’s badies from time to time but in general all is well yeah?

    But… All this power that keeps on growing inside. What if it… Starts corrupting him? Like. Unintentionally, bit by bit. He doesn’t even notice that some of his decisions sHOuLd seem… Wrong, maybe..? But.. Power grows and grows and morality blurs for him. After all, he’s all alone. He has no one there for him. He’s always there for the EntiRe PoPulaTion of the WoRLd, but HE’S alone.

    So what if… Arthur returns because Albion’s greatest need is to be saved… From Merlin..?

    Summary

    When Arthur came back, Merlin cried for a week.

    If anything, taking care of Merlin grounded Arthur in this overwhelming new world anyways.

    Summary

    The year was still 2020. The world had ended shockingly fast. Merlin could imagine asking people who had never lived to see the world as it once was: "Can you imagine it? All that you’ve come to known, all that you’ve struggled to live with, all of it — snatched away in an instant? In mere months? Can you imagine it? The world wiped clean?"
    And if some part of Merlin still hoped that he wouldn’t live long enough to be able to say that, well, he kept that buried deep.

    Summary

    Arthur held his sword to the man's neck, glaring at him fiercely.

    "You're not Merlin." He growled.

    The man did not seem afraid of the sword at his throat. He gave a deep sigh and looked at Arthur with those too-blue eyes.

    "No," he said, "Not anymore."

    Summary

    “You can’t meet Arthur like this.” Mordred gave up on trying to phrase things delicately when Merlin said he didn’t want to kill him.
    “Why the hell not?”
    Mordred grimaced, unsure of how to explain the nuances of the 21st century to a thousand year old warlock. “Arthur is probably some fuckboy business major who's going to call the cops when he sees you, greasy and skeletal, following him around. He’s not going to remember you like this. You’re gross and jaded and you make people uncomfortable. You’re not Merlin anymore, Emrys, you’re not even human.”

     

    Title based on the song "Hard To Find" by The National.

    Summary

    Merlin finds it jarring, sometimes, to reconcile this Arthur lying pliant in his arms and the king that he remembered from before. Yet he knows that underneath all the new experiences and all the new life, they are, at their core, the same people.

    Summary

    The Once and Future King sleeps in the hills, waiting to return in Britain’s hour of greatest need. This much we know. Arthur’s name echoes down to us out of the Dark Ages. But why? When that terrible hour finally comes, what will happen?

    My theory involves an ancient Volvo, a lot of bees, Arthur in pyjamas from Marks and Spencer, a random dog, some very old Anglo-Saxon magic, doom, death and the serpent-spawn of a dark god. [Thanks to thesmallhobbit for beta-reading & encouragement]

    Summary

    Merlin finds himself quarantined with a newly resurrected Arthur Pendragon amidst the raging pandemic. He may be insufferable, but that doesn’t mean that this won’t be fun.

     

    Boredom fic where the boys eat, sleep, and play board games instead of addressing the underlying romantics feelings. As you do.

    Summary

    More than 1,000 years after Arthur's death, Merlin is still waiting for his King's return.

    He waits in an abandoned, yet fully decorated observatory on the shore of the Lake of Avalon. An observatory that he has decorated to his heart's content, a place truly fit for a King.

    He couldn't wait for the day that Arthur would see it.

    Work in progress - modern-day Merlin. A lovely mix of angst and fluff.
