    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

    Three pieces to the puzzle, and pirate Julius Borden thinks he has them all to himself. What he doesn't know is that he's not the only one with eyes on the prize. Merlin, a sorcerer with a gift for unlikely escapes, has been tasked with the challenge of locating the lost dragon egg, said to be sealed within the Tomb of Ashkanar. Unfortunately, he's going to need help. Before he can even begin to dream of reviving the dragon race, he must first find a team of sorcerers willing to help him. Together, they'll do the impossible. If they don't kill each other first.

    A/N Please read this if you're considering reading this work:
    This fic is now completed, and I've been wondering if it would work as it's own original book. I'm going to leave this fic up for another month (1st Aug-31st Aug) and during that I'm asking all readers to consider if it would work or not on it's own and to please give me feedback on what to edit and what to change plot-wise. Any comment is appreciated, and thank you for your support.

    Summary

    So yeah, it was rough at first, but so far, it was quite nice. He had friends that accepted him. He was deeply in love with a total prat who looked very handsome from his seat at the council table, and he could finally ogle him, not just from behind his throne or chairs. His dear hatchling was growing well and was just the sweetest little angel that was not spoiled thank you very much.

    It finally seemed like things were going his way.

    That should have been the first hint at what was to come.

     

    or,

    Merlin gets an ulcer because HA I got one last year and I felt inspired and also bored. I just wanted to write about my recovery and experience and thought 'hey fuck it why not'.

    Summary

    In a society where all sorcerers are enslaved and stripped of their magic, 12-year-old Merlin is sold away from his mother to serve Arthur Pendragon, son of the wealthy Uther Pendragon of Pendragon Industries. Though the life of a slave is harsh and taxing, Merlin just might find comfort and even friendship in his new home. And Arthur may discover that the system he's always accepted may not be as simple as he thought. Can the two of them bridge the social gap and change their world for the better?

    (No Merthur, just lots of close friendship. Eventual Arthur/Gwen I think, but it won't be the focus. Contains abuse and violence towards slaves, although nothing too graphic. I'll add appropriate tags as I go.)

    Summary

    Merlin was tired. So tired. With everyday that passed, the bags on his back got heavier, his eyes looked older, and Merlin felt the exhaustion seep into his bones. And still he waited. Arthur might be back one day, after all, and he would need Merlin's help.
    Merlin doesn't even know if he cares anymore. It's been too long. Maybe he should just let the magic beat him and end the world. He didn't have anyone to live for, after all.
    Or, what I imagine season 6 of the show would be like if Arthur came back and everyone was less emotionally constipated.

    Summary

    Arthur turned around his his chair, returning to his phonecall.

    “Who was that?” Leon asked with a chuckle.

    “Bloody cleaner,” Arthur muttered, aware that the other man was only just leaving his office.

    “What did you throw?”

    “A pen,” Arthur tried.

    “Really?” Leon asked, seeing right through the lie.

    “Okay, it was a mouse.”

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

     

    When Arthur ends up enlisting the sassy new office cleaner to fill in for his football team, he could never have anticipated how their two lives could become so intertwined.

    What everyone around him sees as the start of a sweet office romance turns out to be an intense and frustrating relationship in which Arthur finds himself trying to wade through Merlin's lies.

    Then things take a dangerous turn.

    Will Merlin let Arthur in before it's too late for either of them?

    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.

    Summary

    Arthur dies.

    Camelot burns.

    And yet, despite it all, Merlin survives.
    He persists, long after his friends have perished, experiences the rise and fall of empires, watches man walk on the moon- but Sherlock Holmes?

    Meeting him may cost Merlin everything (Including, predictably, his sanity).

    Or: Merlin decides to move to inner city 20th Century London to pull his life back together. Instead, he meets John Watson and Sherlock Holmes and- well let's just say his life gets a lot more interesting then he had planned on.

     

    [The mature rating is mostly for some more heavy handed crime scene and murder descriptions, as well as some focus on mental health. Don't worry though! We add warnings in the start-of-chapter notes, and mark parts to skip.

    It isn't nearly as serious as the tags suggest, we promise there’s loads of fun stuff in here too to balance out the angst (like ample sass and sarcasm; this is a Sherlock Merlin crossover, after all)]

    Summary

    Arthur gave Merlin his cloak thinking only of the warmth it would offer in a snowstorm. He never thought his manservant may be mistaken for him and snatched by bandits. Nor did he expect his dashing rescue of Merlin to turn his world so utterly on his head.

    Because the bandits hadn't kidnapped a prince. They'd snatched a sorcerer, and now captivity is the least of anyone's problems.
