    Summary

    What happened to you, Morgana?
    Spinning and whirling inside his head, the question had struck Merlin’s whole being as Excalibur would have. What happened to you? Chuckling dryly, he felt the answers swing inside his mind, unconjured. Ignorance, fear, hatred happened. Loneliness, trust, betrayal happened. Uther, Morgause, Merlin happened. And guilt, sharp as a blade, was now clutching at the warlock’s heart.
    (...)
    “Morgana,” he called, his voice hoarse and weak. It was also thick with tears, which he quickly erased. It would not do to cry – not so soon.

    or

    a rewriting of how Arthur and Morgana's confrontation scene in the episode 'The Sword in the Stone' could have gone, if Merlin had intervened.

    you wipe the blood from his hands.
    you say his name,
    over and over,

    you forgive him.
    you forgive him.
    you forgive.

    everyday, for as long as he needs to hear it.

    Summary

    question:
    how do you make a monster
    stop feeling so monstrous?

    the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
    at what point do you become the things you fight?
    at what point does the line between us and them no longer exist?

    Merlin doesn't know anymore. So he accepts it. After all, a monster can still protect Arthur.

    Summary

    “Listen to me, Merlin. Your power will only continue to grow. There is beauty in it… but also great danger. You must learn to control it, to wield it responsibly for you and for the safety of those around you. It is not enough to simply master your magic, you must learn not to fear it as you do right now. Fear will be your enemy and if not conquered, death will be the consequence.”

    Merlin tries to keep his ice magic hidden, he really does, but fate has other plans. Throw in an idiot of a Prince, a frozen Camelot, and an evil sorceress attempting to take over the kingdom and you might just get a love story.

    OR: Merlin is basically Elsa and this is a Frozen AU.

    Summary

    Loki, Harry and Merlin have a habit of dying only to reawaken without their previous scars, bruises, or injuries. The soulmate triad die in battle, once again, in the 21st century AD on Sunday, May-03-2020. Moments later, King Thor and his soulmate Bruce Banner decide to try their first attempt at Magic™. They intend on saving the Universe from Ragnarök by recreating a time-travel ritual Queen Frigga mentioned to Thor in passing moments before her death.

    Unsurprisingly the two horribly botch it up. To be precise it's now; June 23, 425 in the 5th century AD. Once again they're children living on Midgard's continent of Avalon during the Middle Ages. Well… Well, they haven't lived this long without learning to adapt. Besides, it would be 'beyond stupid' and 'completely irresponsible' not to mention 'unbearably boring' to repeat the actions that led to Ragnarök the first time around. Wouldn't it?
