    Summary

    When Uther Pendragon gets a clue about the legendary dragon island, a place where dragons and the last kin of the dragon lords are said to live,
    he sends out his son and his knights to find it. And destroy it.
    The war path, however, did not calculate the storm that was about to come.
    And sooner than expected, Merlin and Arthur find themselves alone on the island.
    Faced with Merlin's past that only he is aware of. And secrets about Balinor, that should not have come to light this way.
    And to top it all of, Merlin is alone with Arthur. Who doesn't even know that he's already confessed.

    Oh yeah. And let's not forget the clusterfuck that Sir Leon has to deal with. :)

    Summary

    When Arthur goes back for his manservant in the tunnels, he discovers the secrets Merlin has been hiding and makes an unforgivable mistake. With blood on his hands, and the whole kingdom unable to meet his eye, Arthur is pushed from Camelot. Forced to be alone with his thoughts and try to deal with the consequences of his actions.

    In one final attempt to make things right, he bargains with the sidhe. Trading his prophesied return for Merlin to live once more. The sidhe accept Arthur's offer, but there's one issue they don't mention to the disgraced king. Merlin never went to Avalon. In fact, he never left Camelot at all.

    Merlin may be back - albeit minus a handful of years worth of memories - but the people of Camelot still do not trust their king, and the enemies of Camelot draw closer by the day. Will Arthur be able to face Merlin and come clean? Will Merlin ever be able to work by Arthur's side again? Or will Camelot's enemies overthrow the weak king, and destroy the last chances of Albion ever being united?

    Summary

    "Merlin looked in the man’s direction for a while. The man turned from talking to a rather greasy-haired-looking person and looked at Merlin directly. The man smiled, eyes crinkling, and waved at him.

    Merlin’s eyes widen a bit and he turned his head to see if the white-haired man was looking at someone else. Noticing no one else was looking towards the table, Merlin turned his head to face him again and waved, smiling nervously."

    Seven years at a magical school for magical students couldn't be that hard, Merlin was magical after all. Right?

    Summary

    Merlin thought he was doing the right thing. He thought telling Arthur that magic had no place in Camelot he'd be able to save his friend. When he sees the mistake he made, he leaves Camelot. Unable to hand the burden of what he had condemned his friends to. Arthur, Gwen, Gaius, and the Knights of the Round Table seek out the Druids to find out everything they can about Merlin and his magic in hopes they can find their friend and bring him home.

    (Merlin left letters behind explaining why he had to leave. A majority of the story will be centered on everyone except Merlin as they learn about him and his sacrifices)

    Takes place after Season 5 episode 5, The Disir.

    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.

    Summary

    There was only one slave in all of Camelot. One young man who was discovered to be a holder of magic, had given that specific punishment. He was the Prince's own manservant. The King was mortified and embarrassed to have been the one who gave the warlock a position so close to the throne. He elected that the man should be made into an example. One so poignant that no other warlock would dare pull a similar stunt.

    Summary

    An alternate ending in which Arthur returns after 1,500 years.

    Summary

    In the early 1890s, the Van der Linde Gang were truly at their finest. Experts at stealing from the rich and giving to the poor, they've made a name for themselves across the West. Two of their newest recruits, a pair of rebellious Irish siblings with an unknown past, slowly find their footing and settle into their new lives as outlaws.
    And yet, as they grow older, threats from all sides begin to appear. A strained relationship with Colm O'Driscoll spells disaster for the gang, and no matter how far they roam across America, the world continues to change around them. If they want to survive, difficult choices must be made.
    No one is as they seem and the impending arrival of law and order threatens to tear the siblings, and everything they hold dear, apart. Is it too late for anyone to find a happy ending?
