    Summary

    Arthur is shocked to learn that Gwaine has slept with all the other knights, or near enough it seems, and he is bothered by the question - why not him? He is determined to get an answer, and get laid. In pursuit of that he learns the truth about Agravaine, magic, the allergies of his knights, and a lot about friendship, loyalty, and love.

    Which is all really great, but he just wants to get laid for god's sake, since it seems everyone else has. Why does he also have to fall in love?

    Summary

    Maybe it’s best that Arthur not love him in return, because as of yet, Merlin’s romantic history is a cemetery.

    In the wake of Morgana’s absence, the castle echoes with emptiness, stifling in its silence. Arthur won’t rest until he finds her. Merlin begins to doubt that he really ever had a place in Camelot or by Arthur’s side. Set in the year-long gap between season 2 and 3.

    Summary

    Morgana is escalating her attempts to see herself on Camelot's throne. When her plan to have Gwen executed or have Arthur leave Camelot with Gwen fails, she decides to cut her losses and poison Arthur. Merlin saves him, of course, and reveals his magic in the process much to Arthur's annoyance. Once the dust has settled things seem to go back to normal, but on a hunting trip gone wrong Arthur's blade gleams with a silvery magic light as he kills the last bandit attacking them. The thing is, Arthur never had magic before Merlin healed him.

    Summary

    The fifteen hundred years which have passed since the battle at Camlann have not done Merlin any favours.
    He's been left alone without his friends, without his king... and without his magic.

When Arthur finally washes up on the shores of Lake Avalon, he's in an unfamiliar world. He doesn't know where to go, but feels a strange pull. Without any other options, he decides to follow it.

    Some things might not be lost to Merlin after all...

    Summary

    "Gently, she leads you out into the darkness / and makes you drink rain." -Patricia Smith, from "Prologue --And Then She Owns You,"

    ☀︎


    Gwen has never fully managed to shake her love for the lady who had once sworn to keep her safe. Now locked in a tower by that same lady, she must face a truth she's long kept buried (even from herself).

    An exploration of grief, anger, and the inability to let go of someone you once loved (even when you should).

    Summary

    Everyone has a breaking point, and Morgana has always known all too well how to find each and every one of Gwen's.

    The enchantment Morgana tries to weave in the dark tower does not work as intended, not entirely. It's in the aftermath, though, that Gwen has to make a row of hard choices; where she has to decide for herself what she wants and what she needs. It's not easy, and they might not end up being the right decisions, but for once they are all hers and maybe that's all that matters.

    A story of grief, rage, (the absence of) forgiveness, and loving someone who is still alive but does not exist anymore. Of maybe taking a wrong turn that leads to the right destination.

    Summary

    Every time Morgana believes she’s rid herself of affection for Gwen and Arthur, that same traitorous part of her heart roars back to life, threatening to strangle her with guilt. 

    She was done with feeling guilty, this is what she had told herself, and yet Arthur is screaming at his father as if he would give the kingdom up now all for one serving girl. That is to say nothing of the look on Gwen’s face when she’d met Morgana’s eyes. The betrayal shining in her eyes had cut deeper than any knife ever could. 

    She had said she was done with this. The throne was hers, Uther corrupt, and she could not trust Arthur with it. She could not but—
    .
    .
    .
    “You won’t kill her,” she says calmly, voice ringing through the room. “You won’t banish her either.”

    Summary

    Druid elders used to tell stories of monsters in the dark. They’d whisper in hushed tones of creatures to be afraid of—a lesson in caution. The children would gasp and shake as the elders’ words reached their ears. Mordred was one of those children once.

    But what he didn’t know was that Emrys would be the monster of this story.

    —•—

    Arthur and the knights get captured by a rogue sorcerer. It’s up to Merlin to save them before it’s too late.
