    Summary

    The Dragon Lords of Essetir had used their powers to establish trade routes with even the furthest lands, bringing spices, silks, jewels, all sorts of fantastic and fascinating things. All of which Camelot could only buy from Essetir. For many years, it had made them the most prosperous kingdom in all of Albion. That was, until the purge. Each year, more of Camelot's citizens arrive at the border camps, fleeing persecution for their magic. And each year, Ealdor and the other border villages need more help to support those in need.
    But could King Arthur's string of failed political marriages provide Prince Emrys of Essetir with a way to save the citizens of both kingdoms?

    Summary

    I wrote a follow up where Merlin gets to try again and keep his people this time! Because the first one was so depressing.

    This is also dark though, fair warning.

    Summary

    The Last Dragonlord lived. After twenty-two years, he gets that which he has craved - his freedom. But first, some old business that needed to be resolved.

    Merlin s2e13, how I think it should have gone because honestly they starved us of Balinor/Hunith content and I'm not getting over it any time soon.

    Summary

    Canon Au - Balinor was arrested in Ealdor, and taken back to Camelot. Instead of executing him, he is locked up deep inside the caves under Camelot.

    18 years later, Merlin shows up. Instead of letting him continue with his destiny, however, Kilgharrah tells him to 'find Balinor'. Merlin has no idea what this means until he overhears Uther telling Gaius to prepare some supplies for him to 'take down to Balinor'. Merlin follows Uther, and discovers that there is indeed someone under the castle. Unaware of how they are related and hoping for some new company in his dark, lonely cell, Balinor becomes Merlin's mentor, and destiny begins to change its course.

    Summary

    "why are you in a magical portrait?"
    "I could ask you the same question, and why are you on a horse?"
    or
    In which Merlin and Arthur as young and rosy-cheeked little boys first meet through mutual magical portraits (it's like facetime but magical). In which Uther never banned magic and Ygraine is still alive. In which Balinor is still alive and Merlin is a dragonlord with a different destiny.

    Summary

    “Not much of a talker, eh?” Gwaine shrugged, and Balinor hoped he would take the hint. But then Gwaine lifted a hand and called over a barmaid. “Two pints please, one for me and my new friend.”

    Balinor growled in exasperation. “<I hope the dragons use your bones as toothpicks,>” he muttered under his breath.

    Gwaine frowned. “Well, that wasn’t very nice.”


    Uther thought he had wiped out all the Dragonlords during the Purge.

    But sometimes they pop up in the most unexpected of places.

    Summary

    Magic reigns in Airgialla. Nearly everyone has it in some kind of capacity.

    Hunith is a simple village girl...at least until Prince Balinor Ambrosius shows up at her village and the two fall in love.

    They were meant to be, to the High Priestess Nimueh's chagrin. She doesn't believe that Hunith, with her weak magic and humble origins, is a worthy match for a Prince and Future Dragonlord.

    Balinor and Hunith ignore her threats and are happily married, and blessed with a legendary son that they name Merlin. Their boy's destiny as Emrys is kept a secret so he can live as a normal child...but what happens when Nimueh gets word of it?

    Summary

    Grunhilda, far too fat and far too mangy to really be the pride cat of the Pendragon estate, is curled on Arthur’s bed between Merlin’s knees. Sometimes he thinks this horrendous beast is his favorite part of the sprawling greens and ostentatious manner. No one knows exactly where Grunhilda came from. To hear the elder Pendragon tell it, she simply slunk in a few weeks before Arthur was born. Feral and dirty and really unpleasant to anyone who wasn’t Ygraine.

    Summary

    The legends of Emrys and The Once and Future King are known far and wide. But they don't tell tales of how Arthur and Merlin fought constantly. Or how the Queen was a servant. They certainly don't speak of the woman in the dungeons of Camelot. Or how important her advice was to the young Emrys.

    Summary

    AU Balinor lives (because he SHOULD have). Balinor's first night back with Hunith.

    When he had left Merlin in Camelot and set out on his journey back to the beginning, having finally been granted a freedom which had been so cruelly denied, Balinor hadn’t been sure what to expect. He had come back to fulfil a promise in the wake of all his broken ones but the dreamlike happiness he now finds himself floating in had seemed out of reach.

    Summary

    AU Season 2. !Balinor lives.

    It’s sunrise when Balinor finally arrives at the small, seemingly insignificant, village of Ealdor. The budding light, so full of promise, blooms along the horizon, colouring the world in pastel tones of dusty pinks, oranges, yellows and a bright blue that grows in pigment with each passing moment. There is almost a poetic feeling as Balinor retraces his footsteps back through the years. A circle completing itself.
