    Summary

    Well, actually I'm not sure what happened either," Merlin began to babble. "There was this group of revenge-bent sorcerers and they could command a few beasts—"
    "Hold on, define a few?"
    "—shush, Arthur, there were only about ten magical beasts when I got there."
    "And you still went after them... alone!??" 

    "It's not like I was looking for trouble." Merlin scowled at the prince's near hysterical tone. "Trouble was looking for one certain dollophead royal pratness, and I was just there to intercept them. Besides," the warlock grinned, sweet and somewhat menacing at the same time, "you should see the other guys."

    Arthur ran a hand over his hair, relief and exasperation mixing together into a budding headache. "Merlin, what have I told you about not doing these stuff alone anymore?" 

     

    In which Arthur is dealing with worries over Merlin's daredevil tendencies.

    Merlin isn't as clumsy as he would seem to most people. He is actually very charming too, and would tuck a flower behind Arthur’s ear just to see him blush.

    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

    Arthur Pendragon is the one and only son of Uther Pendragon, the great king of Camelot. He has been raised to hate magic, despise it, under the guise of his father. All he has ever known of it is the evil it can do - he has never learned of the good it can do. Griffins, unicorns, elves, everything... he has been raised to want to destroy it all.

    But one day, while out on one of his frequent hunting trips, he splits off from the rest of his group - and runs almost immediately into the deadly creature known as the Questing Beast. His sword and crossbow is useless against it, and as it bears down on him, he accepts his fate. That is, until out of nowhere, an elf appears and blasts it away with a burst of magic.

    Of course, the elf is immediately arrested and marked for execution, but Arthur can't help but think that Uther is wrong about this choice in particular. And there's something else this elf makes him feel entirely, but he can't quite put his finger on it...

    Summary

    As he let the water heat, he grabbed Merlin’s favourite peppermint tea from the tea cabinet, already hearing the little Merlin in his head scolding him for using the microwave to heat the water instead of ‘doing it properly with a kettle and thermometer to measure the right temperature.’

    He chuckled softly, shaking the voice out of his head. He knew he’d hear about it when he took the tea back to the sick man. Somehow, he always knew when Arthur didn’t use the damn kettle. It was like he had a sixth sense for it. He didn’t have the time, though, if he took the time to do it Merlin’s way (the right way! The Merlin in his brain helpfully supplied), his soup would go cold again!

    ---

    Merlin's sick. Arthur comes to help make it better.

    Summary

    “Prince Arthur, yes?” Merlin asked him, an easy smile on his lips. Arthur swallowed and nodded. Merlin held out his hand. “May I have this dance?”

    Arthur’s heart climbed up his lungs and he put his hand in the Prince’s tentatively. “If you’ll have me.”

    Merlin’s eyebrow quirked up. “Didn’t realize a dance equated to getting married.”

    OR

    Where Balinor is king, Merlin is a prince, Morgana, Arthur, and Gwen are Bffs, and Arthur is pining.

    Summary

    The newest Defense Against the Dark Arts instructor was strange.

    Somehow stranger was the new History of Magic instructor.

    When all one wants is a quiet year after the horrors of a war pass, it seems one final mystery can’t help but wriggle its way into the quiet corridors of Hogwarts: School of Witchcraft & Wizardry.


    Merlin and Arthur spend some time teaching at Hogwarts under aliases, until one day it all goes wrong and they're exposed in a painful way.


    “Wait! Arthur! Don’t open that!” Merlin exclaimed suddenly, rushing to Arthur’s side at the chest behind the desk.

     

    “What? Why? You just told me I could!” Arthur shouted back, sounding panicked by Merlin’s tone. It was too late, though, he had already started opening it.

    Summary

    “I love you,” Merlin whispered it like a promise, like a prayer.
    It was Arthur’s job to protect Merlin, even from himself. So he wrapped his arms around Merlin’s neck, resting his forehead against his. Merlin’s eyes were wide, vulnerable and scared. Arthur swore he would do anything to keep Merlin from being scared ever again.
    “Well then, why don’t you tell me every terrible thing you ever did, and let me love you anyway?”

    ...

    For my merlin bingo: witch-hunt.
    In which a witch-hunt takes place in Camelot, Arthur worries for Merlin's safety and Merlin worries for his secrets.
    Arthur knows. Merlin doesn't know he knows.
