    Summary

    This is it. Lewis finally has his chance for revenge, but when that moment comes, that simple "Lewis?" freezes him in his tracks. Unable to kill his old friend -- at least, for now -- he rescues Arthur from the treacherous spiky drop. But why? Why couldn't he just let him fall?
    And why did dropping his murderer break his heart when this was what he wanted all along?
    ... Or was it?
    With emotions running high and Arthur putting his true feelings out into open air, a simple touch shows Lewis a new side of things: Arthur's side.

    Summary

    Summary

    There is no future without Arthur.

    With this thought, Merlin chooses to follow Arthur into the unknown.

    This decision changes everything.

    Merlin is granted a second chance to see Arthur turn Camelot's future to gold. Arthur is granted the opportunity to know Merlin, all of Merlin. However, the path of fate never runs quite that smooth.

    But maybe, just maybe. True love can conquer all.

    Summary

    Things are going pretty well for Merlin and Arthur. They've brought peace to the five kingdoms, magic is no longer shadowed by tyranny, and everyone is generally having a good time. Only, Merlin is pretty sure Arthur's going to pack his bags and run away in the middle of the night if one more person asks him why he hasn't taken a queen yet.

    They decide to take a few days and travel to Ealdor so Arthur can get away from some of the pressure of being Camelot's king. But little does Merlin know, the revelations they'll have while they're there will follow them back to Camelot and beyond.

    In which Arthur tries to be a farmer but ends up more as Merlin's slightly useless house husband.

    Summary

    “Serves you right.”

    Scowl deepening, Arthur levelled a glare at the unconcerned figure in front of him, scouring him front head to foot. He saw jeans that might have once been black but were now a worn grey. He saw a frayed cheque shirt with its sleeves rolled up over pale forearms. He saw messy dark hair that curled untamed around large ears. He saw blue eyes.

    Shit.

    OR

    Arthur just wanted to get through his first year of university with as few complications as possible. Enter Merlin, a walking complication Arthur finds impossible to avoid.

    Summary

    'At Emrys’ feet Merlin will fall, and from Merlin’s demise he shall rise.'

    That's what the prophecy had said, after all.

    More specifically: Arthur is sent on a quest with the powerful warlock Emrys and strikes up an unwilling friendship. It feels like betrayal, when Emrys was the one who killed Merlin all those years ago.

    Summary

    Young children of Camelot are being snatched from the embrace of their parents, mothers and fathers sob into melancholy darkness of the night. Castle Guard witnesses proclaim a voracious army twinkling with sin arise from the Darkling Wood suddenly each night, just outside of Camelot's boarders, before relentlessly soaring among clouds and targeting the public below.

    Arthur Pendragon, his knights, and Merlin are to investigate these areas of magical woodland where the missing children are suspected to be kept for reasons unknown. Merlin has warned Arthur, repeatedly, of the danger that lies on sacred land such as The Darkling Wood, owned by a monarchy of Royal Fae. Of course, his anxieties fall upon deaf ears, mocked as another one of his 'funny feelings'. A blatant ignorance to the fact Merlin is never once wrong when it comes to his senses.

    That is how the Knights are ambushed.
    That is how Merlin becomes stranded, vulnerable, to the ancient forest Fae and into the uncharacteristically caring hands of an old enemy.

    Summary

    A year has passed since Arthur repealed the laws against magic in Camelot, and it happens that a druid festival celebrating friendship and love falls around the same time (though Merlin's been too busy to explain exactly what the festival involves, what with his new position as Court Sorcerer and all). Arthur and Merlin spend the day together, and Arthur has never been happier.

    Featuring pining, fluff, and flowers!

    Summary

    “Arthur." Merlin's voice calls, through the haze of cold and the devastation of death. He lays his forehead against Arthur's back, in-between his shoulder blades when he refuses to turn, blinking the tears from his gaze and holding his head high. “Arthur.” Merlin pleads, forehead still against his back, long fingers holding tightly onto the king's arms, before he rises his face to press a kiss to the back of Arthur's neck and noses along his hair. “Turn around.”

     

    (in which Arthur goes back in time, to find Merlin right after having lost him).

    Summary

    Merlin’s heats have been getting worse, and potions can only do so much to tame them. So of course Morgana has made more plans to destroy Uther and Arthur’s rule in Camelot. And of course this occurs as Merlin’s heat is approaching.

    Summary

    "Amortentia smells differently to each of us, can you guess what that smell is based on?”
    Arthur dipped his stupid nose into the steam, inhaling it, and promptly started coughing. Ironic, Merlin smirked, that Arthur Pendragon would be allergic to the smell of love.
    “Whatever repels us, I expect. This stuff wreaks of Merlin.”
    That halted Merlin’s train of thought rather abruptly. Freya sniggered behind him, obviously realising the same thing as Merlin.
    “Quite the opposite, Mr. Pendragon, the Amortentia potion exudes what we are attracted to.”

    Yet another enemies to lovers oneshot Hogwarts AU.
