    Summary

    Arthur had always believed, the biggest change Camelot would ever go through, would be the day of his coronation.
    Truth is, it wasn't.
    The biggest change that Camelot ever underwent, came through a bumbling farmboy, who insulted the crown prince himself and somehow ended up stumbling into the hearts of the entire kingdom.

    -Set in season 1, open ended, because honestly, we could go on forever.
    - Based on a tumblr prompt.

    Summary

    Merlin and Arthur meet when they are young, and continue to see each other on the sporadic visits Hunith and Merlin make to Camelot. They become quick friends and get closer and closer as they grow. Until Merlin dies.

    Years pass and Arthur has forgotten all about Merlin. Or he tries to. Out of boredom, he wanders into the dungeons and finds a boy claiming to have been imprisoned in Camelot for years. Something about him keeps Arthur secretly visiting the sorcerer, who introduces himself as Emrys.

    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

    “You are accused of sorcery. By the laws of Camelot, I hereby sentence you to death,” the king’s voice was cold, and quite frankly, bored, as he sentenced yet another sorcerer to die by the pyre...

    ...“He’s not really Merlin, he doesn’t really have magic! If you kill him you’ll make a huge mistake!”...

    ...The crown prince of Camelot would be burned at the pyre by his own father. For conjuring harmless butterflies. By accident. And no one would ever even know that Arthur would really be dead...

    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

    Merlin has been teaching Morgana how to control and use her magic for almost one year, now. Everything is how they want it to be. Even Arthur and Gwen know.

    But when a panic-stricken Uther catches a glimpse of Morgana preforming magic within the boundary of Camelot, can he learn to trust his beloved daughter and the people around her, or will he fall back into his familiar ways and throw her and Merlin into exile?

    Uther's mind is a stubborn one, and the journey that follows is a tough hill to climb.

    Summary

    R/darkfic prompts: "Thank you for agreeing to help. My son is in a difficult position."

    Summary


    Arthur’s silence was a garotte around Merlin's throat. He tried to brace himself. Finally, after a long, knife-edge moment, Arthur spoke up. “You’re a sorcerer, Merlin. My father has hunted your kind. You could have killed him at any time, and yet you stopped me from doing so. Why?”
    “I have no love for Uther, but I believe in you, and in the kingdom you will build.”
    “Why?” Arthur repeated. His hands wrapped around the iron bars of the cell.
    The easy response was destiny, but no prophecy could predict or encompass how deeply Merlin had come to regard Arthur. “Because you’re you.”


    Or, instead of lying to Arthur in S2E08 “The Sins of the Father”, Merlin prevents him from killing Uther with his magic.

    Summary

    Merlin was having second thoughts about Camelot and his destiny. When he saves everyone from Morgana's attack, he reveals his magic. He always expected Arthur's rejection but it's still too much and he's just so done that he just wants to get out. Armed with his magic and Arthur's rejection, he was ready for what is to come and what is to be undone.

    Meanwhile, Arthur struggles with his feelings for Merlin and whether or not his fears would eat him alive or his feelings for Merlin would help him see how blind he was to the murder Camelot has been calling victories.
