    Summary

    Alright. Kilgharrah had had enough of this shit. He was over 1000 years old and he had still never met someone so inclined into getting into trouble as his lord and brother, Merlin.

    He had been alone so long. Twenty years without a soul left in the world who cared about him. He was the Great Dragon, Triple Goddess be damned. No longer would he let Merlin risk his life alone, unprotected and uncared for.

    There was only one clear course of action left.

    Assume human form and move to Camelot as Merlin’ long lost half brother. It was mostly true, anyways.

    There was no way for this to go wrong, he was sure.

    Ah. Famous last words.

    Summary

    He had been running his whole life. It had always been the easiest solution, to run and never look back, to run until his legs couldn't take the strain anymore and then run even more. Running was the only constant thing in his life, along with his magic. Neither of those ever failed him, not like people did.

    or

    The fic where Merlin always runs until he finally finds somewhere to stay.

    Summary

    But not even Merlin, the greatest sorcerer to ever live, could tell exactly what fate had in store. No one had such a capability, not even seers.

    Merlin understood that better than anyone, and he would have done anything to divert his own path--anything at all--if it meant that Arthur would have looked at him one last time.

    ~*~

    Since I am terrible at summaries, this is an AU in which:

    - Merlin is forced to leave Camelot
    - Merlin can shapeshift into a dragon
    - Merlin's destiny is to be the king of a magical kingdom
    - Arthur is a butthurt baby
    - Angst and Merthur ensues
    - Rated M for graphic violence and eventual sexy times

    Summary

    Arthur, Merlin, and the Knights of the Round Table must travel to the Isle of Mona, invited by the eccentric royal family to help teach Arthur about governing a kingdom where magic is a free practice. As a condition of Morgana's surrender the ban was lifted in Camelot and Arthur asked Merlin to learn magic so he had someone he could trust to help him govern. Merlin has been playing the struggling apprentice for months, learning everything he can and pretending not to already know it all.
    However, when they land in Mona, all the magic users recognize Emrys and treat him as such. Merlin is forced to confess all to his king and the knights, who agree that until the treaty is signed and they return home, they are going to have to act as if this is all normal. Cue shenanigans, tournaments, worshipers, and more secrets than Arthur knows how to deal with.
    The story is a slow burn and a lot is going on, Merlin is polyamorous and Arthur decides he can live with that. This is my first long story, I will try to update often, let me know how I am doing!

    Summary

    "I'm not sure what I'd have done."
    "And I didn't want to put you in that position.”

    For better or for worse, Arthur knows Merlin's secret. The problem? Merlin doesn't know Arthur knows. This leaves Arthur with a predicament... and an opportunity. A test. Three trials and three opportunities for Merlin to prove he doesn't deserve death. Arthur hopes he will pass them. Maybe then the image of Merlin's golden eyes will stop haunting him.

    (AKA a really in-depth character study of Arthur's psyche but with a giant dose of angst and suspense because DRAMA. Also served with a side helping of Merlin character analysis and difficult moral calls. Lastly, this is really how I wanted Season 3 to go and was my prediction at the time. I stand by it!)

    Summary

    Turns out, baby dragons are too young to obey Dragonlord commands, even ones to stay away for their own safety. Consequently, Merlin finds himself put through more ridiculousness than usual trying to keep Aithusa out of trouble when she keeps coming to look for him in Camelot.

    (And Arthur might be thick as a log on most days, but even he is starting to notice something's out of the ordinary...)

    Honestly, if Merlin knew she'd cause so much trouble, he would've just left Aithusa in the ruddy egg.

    Apparently, the dragon offers three wishes to whoever frees him.
    Naturally, Arthur is an idiot. So he wishes to be a king.

    Summary

    What is real power? You and I both know that Merlin is the most powerful warlock to ever live but is it really about his breathtaking abilities given to him at birth? Can someone who is magic itself be considered magically powerful? This is the story of the most powerful person in Camelot who could overthrow the monarchy with a word but would rather just stand by and protect his best friend, and their people.

    Summary

    Ever wondered what would have happened if Merlin had realised at the lake that Albion HADN'T been united, and that Kilgharrah had been a manipulative lying shit the whole time? Well I did, and so I wrote this! Enjoy!!

    Summary

    Merlin has spent 1500 years traversing the Earth, Sea, and Stars, learning and growing while unwittingly forging the path of his destiny. Now, the warlock's lonely period of wandering is coming to a close as a New Age ushers in.

    The time has come for the powers of the Old World and the New to unite. The prophecy of Albion is far greater than anyone could have possibly imagined, and its fate now rests on the shoulders of an incredible, yet divided, group of people. The stakes have never been higher before nor the times more dire; yet it is only once the ashes fall, that the legends may rise.

    After all, it is always darkest before the dawn.

    _____

    Warning: This is not an instant fix-it. Seriously. Be warned. In this story, actions have consequences and lies come back to bite. Don't expect magic and technology to just spontaneously solve all the world's problems. Even superheroes, all-powerful warlocks and reincarnated legends actually have to put in the more tedious everyday efforts.

    Summary

    Eire is the territory of sorcerers, there is no coven on the island and most vampires do not dare to set foot here. But decades of war against Cenred and Morgana have brought the Pendragon coven to the brink of annihilation. They are in desperate need of a weapon to strengthen their defences. An old friend has pointed Arthur towards a man called Emrys, who might know more about the secret magical rituals which can enhance a vampire’s powers. And Arthur is fairly sure, that this Emrys must be a sorcerer. He heaves a sign. Desperate times, desperate measures…

    Summary

    In the shadows of the trees, the man’s eyes seemed to shimmer with a golden glow.

    “Identify yourself,” Arthur commanded, trying not to be unnerved by the man’s unnatural gaze. His hair was black and fell into those unearthly eyes in a disorderly tumble that looked somehow soft, and made Arthur suddenly curious if it was.

    A voice to his left shook the absurd thought away. “He is the Emrys, the son of our First Lord, Arthur of Camelot.”

    Summary

    Every ten years or so a tournament is held between all the five kingdoms.
    In which one (strongest of the kingdom) sorcerer is chosen as a representative of their king/queen/crown bearer.
    The kings however, do not choose the sorcerer for themselves, which Arthur is thankful for, since magic is still banned in Camelot.
    But it is chosen by the mirror of truth. It shows the face of the strongest sorcerer in said lands, so Arthur can reach out to them. He hopes the druids may help him here.
    The one who looses the battle is most likely to get attacked by the other kingdoms, that's why Arthur even agreed to participate. (And wants to win)
    When the mirror finally chooses the participants. Camelot's champion is......... well i mean, who is the strongest magic user in Camelot? Exactly!

    It's Morgana.

    After all, Merlin was born in Cendred's kingdom.

    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. :)
