    Summary

    When Queen Ygraine died, a grief-stricken King Uther struck out at magic and started the genocide known as the Great Purge. The sorcerers who could, escaped across the borders to Camelot’s neighbouring countries where they formed the organisation known as the Opposition, while those who stayed founded the Resistance. Throughout the years, both organisations have succeeded in infiltrating almost every one of Camelot’s government agencies, including the Knights of Camelot – Uther’s elite corps.

    Twenty years after the Purge, Princess Morgana’s magic secretly surfaces and the Opposition sends Merlin to Camelot to teach her how to control it. When the Resistance tries to assassinate Crown Prince Arthur, Merlin saves his life, and as a reward, finds himself a Squire of Camelot. Now he must navigate a gruelling training regimen, run-ins with the Resistance, royal visitors from other countries, and still find the time to teach Morgana magic while staying undercover until the time is right.

    Summary

    At first, it hadn’t crossed his mind- not really- that Merlin may have such a distinct and specific taste in men. It had all fallen into place when one fateful afternoon, Merlin spoke about some Greek hero, some ancient, Hellenic lad by the name of Achilles.

    or,

    In which Arthur wants to look like Achilles to win Merlin's heart, but of course, he's missing the whole point.

    Written for Scruffy Pendragon Fest 2020.

    Summary

    With every friendly touch (and lie) Merlin falls deeper in love (and despair) with Arthur, yet as always he is reminded why they can never be so every night he bleeds until he falls into a dreamless sleep; hoping for an ending with his Once and Future King.

    Summary

    Arthur and Merlin have a special relationship. They always have, even when they were prince and servant. While many question it when first noticing, eventually it becomes an understanding in Camelot—and even among some other countries—that where there is Arthur, there is Merlin. And, where there is Merlin, there is Arthur.
     

    Or

    Arthur and Merlin's relationship as witnessed and explained by others.

     

    Also, or

    Five times someone realizes that Merlin is the Queen, one time Merlin realizes it himself, and one time he owns it.

    Summary

    Arthur had finally put his finger on it.
    The thing that had made Merlin stand out, the thing that had intrigued him about the boy ever since the first time he’d met him. The thing that was going to get him killed… Merlin had magic. Not only had it, but used it freely all the bloody time. It was only a matter of time before someone saw him do it, and then they’d report him to the king and Merlin would be dragged out into the courtyard and executed.
    Well, not if Arthur had anything to do about it.

     
    Mid series one, Arthur, for once not being totally oblivious, discovers that Merlin has magic. The problem is, having magic gets people killed and Arthur very much prefers Merlin alive. It turns out making sure nobody sees Merlin do magic is rather a full-time job however...

    Summary

    The first time Arthur notices that Merlin disappears at the most inconvenient of times is after he miraculously survives the bite of the Questing Beast. He might've forgotten all about it if it didn't keep happening; if it didn't leave him with a worrying obsession over what his servant is up to—only out of concern, of course. It's when they're searching for Morgana that Arthur finally gets a chance to follow, though he might end up finding much more than he bargained for.

    He's not sure he's complaining, though.

    Summary

    The colour of the rich, Pendragon cloak blooms in the warm light of spring. The sharp thorn of love threatens to draw blood, then. As days grow longer, hearts grow fonder. With flushed faces, abandoned stations and duties— affection taints the air thick as the very oxygen breathed. Touches become electric, and glances grow heated.

    Like the first rose of midspring, love blossoms in the hearts of two men closer than any.

     

    Or

     

    “Arthur?” Merlin murmured late one night, as he prepped the bed for the King to retire. Moonlight poured through the window, and the warlock almost glowed as he was bathed in it.

    The soft, tender way the name fell from his lips send a shiver down the King’s body, causing an outbreak of gooseflesh atop his skin. “Merlin?”

    “It’s time for you to rest, Sire… You’ve worked hard enough today.”

    Summary

    He just couldn’t tear his eyes away. He knew he should, but… Gods.

    Arthur let his eyes slowly trail over the body waist deep in the cold lake, from where he stood by the trees. Moonlight shed through, lighting the sorcerer so perfectly. He was positively glowing…

    “I know you’re there, Arthur…” The King nearly leapt out of his skin when Merlin’s voice drifted to him.

    “It’s hot, tonight. Come join me…”

     


    Or
     

    Arthur’s dragged Merlin out on a hunting trip to get away from the stress of repealing the magic ban, creating new legislation to regulate usage, and drawing up the paperwork to promote his servant to Court Sorcerer.

    As the night sets in, the air grows hotter rather than cooler, and after making camp Merlin wanders off with complaints of the heat.

    When he doesn’t come back for a worryingly amount of time, Arthur trails off after him, unwittingly stumbling upon his manservant taking a midnight dip in a lake.
