    Summary

    In "The Darkest Hour", Gaius wasn't sure what it will take to repair the tear in the veil between worlds (blood sacrifice was merely a guess) and Kilgharrah insisted that "the spirit world demands no sacrifice", that "it is the demands of the Cailleach".

    What if... the Cailleach asked for something other than blood sacrifice? What if she asked for the two halves to be made whole instead?

    Summary

    “Where did you learn to do that?” Gwaine asked, following Merlin up the bank.
     
    “This is how normal people fish,” Merlin replied dryly. “Not trying to stab them with swords.”

    “This is a knife,” Gwaine retorted, sounding every bit as sulky as he felt.

    “Still, you didn’t catch a fish.”

    Gwaine saves a young Merlin from a beating and ends up with a new little brother to take care of on his travels.

    Or, what would Merlin be like if he had Gwaine influencing him over his formative years?

    Summary

    Merlin trails a sorcerer who has infiltrated Camelot's vaults and seems to possess the power to steal life with just a touch of their hand (a power not seen since Merlin's first week in Camelot). As usual he is to face this dangerous sorcerer alone.

    Or so he thinks, until Gwaine stumbles upon them, mere seconds before a confrontation. Then things get... complicated.
    ---
    Merlin weighs the odds of saving this guard without revealing himself and getting arrested.

    It fills him with shame when he finds himself considering letting him be the distraction Merlin needs to take out the sorcerer from behind. It would save many lives. No doubt, it would. At the cost of just one more.

    And yet the idea fills Merlin with a cold sense of self-loathing... which rapidly turns into cold dread as the guard - no, knight - steps around the corner.

    Gwaine.

    Summary

    Sometimes he thinks these fireside moments are what he lives for.
    Sometimes it feels like the flames that dance alone in the dark are the only ones who really see him.

    Merlin couldn't move on, and now he can't go back.

    Summary

    The world was strange. There was a time where almost every other person had some sort of magical ability. Whether it was making toys hover through the air or helping bathwater to stay warm longer. But some had abilities that scared those without. Their vibrant colored hair showed the extent of their powers. While most people would have a few streaks here and there, or color that was only at their nape, it was common knowledge that they held some innate skill with magic. There were many who didn’t know what their ability was, but they held a colored streak that would fade as they grew older. It tended to manifest in many in their adolescence; their magical abilities. If they studied to try to figure out what their ability was, if they didn’t know, then their hair would brighten the closer they got to figuring it out. Once their color settled, their eyes would glow a brilliant gold color when they applied their magic. It was breathtaking to behold.

    Summary

    Merlin is injured while (secretly) killing a beast the knights are "fighting." Obviously, he has to hide it, but that only goes so well when your insides are trying to be your outsides. Fortunately he's got a few friends who already know everything (and a few who will find out).

    Summary

    The last thing Gwaine remembers is escoring a guest and seeing a glowing globe. Next thing he knows he's in Gaius' chambers. Oh, and he's stuck to Merlin. It should be fun right? Except he had been trying to avoid Merlin.

    Summary

    Merlin takes a chance and writes a letter to Princess Mithian after she departs. His intent is to apologize and allay any concerns she might have with future alliances with Camelot.

    Over time, the letters become more. Slowly, the Princess and the Warlock discover they have started falling for each other.

    (First part is primarily story, with very little dialogue. Last portion is fairly opposite.)

    Summary

    Bad luck always seem to be attacking Merlin. It's like the warlock just can't catch a break no matter how hard he tries. And when the bad luck results in his worst nightmares coming true Merlin truly can't cope. That is....unless apologies are made and forgiveness is given.

    A reimagining of the episodes 'The Secret Sharer' (4x7) and 'Lamia' (4x8).

    Summary

    I hope you never find these, but in case you do, don't find me weird. I've never met you and this is as far as I let my imagination wonder. I'm not even sure If I am allowed to call you father, but let's pretend I am.

    So, 'Father', these letters are for myself, not for you. I do this to ease my mind so I don't think about the lack of your presence every second of the day.

    Sincerely, your son(?)
    Merlin.

    Summary

    Whoever said 'third time's the charm' absolutely did NOT know what they were talking about, because at this point Arthur had found out about Merlin’s magic three-hundred and twelve times and it was going no smoother.
    One might think that, being the most powerful warlock to ever walk the earth, Merlin would be able to break one tiny little curse. Or, failing that, would be able to get through one day without Arthur discovering his magic.
    However, expectations do not always match reality, no matter how much Merlin might wish otherwise.

    Summary

    They say not to put all your eggs in one basket, but Arthur only has one basket. He must somehow convince Camelot that Merlin - and, by extension, magic - deserves to be free on the actions of the warlock alone. Only, his subjects are difficult to sway, and his nobility harder. Meanwhile, he must battle his growing feelings for his manservant - and the fact that he doesn't only love Merlin.

    In which Merlin must fess up to everything he's ever done in front of all of Camelot, and he has to hope that his good deeds outweigh his evil ones. It has all come down to this.
