    Finn’s best friend/roommate accidentally brings home a cat for the weekend, which in turn leads to Finn meeting the man of his dreams.

    Funny how things work out sometimes.

    Summary

    Klaus had been sick several times in their presence, with cold and flu and whatever else. He’d sneezed and coughed and whined and requested more cough syrup from Mom than necessary. But he’d always been on the drugs. All at once, they had to consider the possibility that Klaus had no idea how to control the fluctuations in his powers while sober.

    Summary

    A Modern day Merlin AU set at the University of St Andrews, featuring teetotal kickboxers, secret wizards, magnificent bodyguards of various genders, irate fairies, imprisoned dragons, crumbling gothic architecture, arrogant princes, adorable engineering students, stolen gold, magical doorways, attempted assassination, drunken students, shaving foam fights, embarrassing mornings after, The Hammer Dance, duty, responsibility, friendship and true love...

    This story was inspired by the thought of Prince William of Wales (and indeed the current Max von Hapsburg) studying at the University of St Andrews; it is also, as the title suggests, at least a little inspired by the operetta 'The Student Prince'.

    Grateful thanks to Lamardeuse and DarkEmeralds for Beta and cheerleading!

    ::2019 note: This story was written BEFORE the TV show introduced the character of Gwaine. It's not that I can't spell, or that I'm perversely writing him out of character - I incorporated other characters from Arthurian legend (Kay, Gawain etc) into my story, and lacking prophetic abilities, my versions naturally don't mesh with the versions subsequently introduced into the show.::

    Summary

    Arthur could see his father glaring down - face red and eyes narrowed as he looked at Merlin with clear distaste.

    "Once this over, sorcerer...I’ll burn you."

    "You’ve already tried that," Merlin’s voice answered and Arthur had to bite his fist to keep from making any noise. “You need to accept you can’t kill me… Hand me that blanket, please.”

    “I’m sure there must be some method… Beheading?”

    “No, we tried that.”

    “Hanging?”

    “I just sort of... Swung there, remember?”

    There was another pause.

    “I should have made you keep that dragon below the castle so I could feed you to it.”

    “Kilgharrah? He won’t eat me, but if you want to torture me than making me listen to his nonsense for an hour might do it.” Merlin said and there was a soft sigh from the other end of the room. “I’m glad you agreed to help me though. Usually I have to do the grunt work of saving Arthur myself.”

    “I can’t wait to kill you.” 

    Or

    Uther finds out about Merlin’s magic, but can’t seem to kill him. Merlin is just trying to protect Arthur. They become a begrudgingly effective duo. Arthur doesn't understand why they think he isn't noticing this.

    Summary

    Merlin would have expected his magic would be revealed in some epic life or death scenario.
    Not for something so mundane.

    “You know what. Yes. I do confess I have magic.”, Merlin said. And suddenly the room was silent. Honestly, why were they surprised? He was just condemned to death for sorcery.[...]
    "No. Gaius didn't know.. [....] In fact, I've been very careful hiding my secret from all of you. [...]
    Which is why this is the stupidest thing I have EVER heard!”, Merlin shook of the knights hand, as he stepped forward to the king. Like a mad man. To be fair, he was a little mad.

    “Burned... for heating tea.”, Merlin shook his head.
    [...] "How fucked up is that?!"

     

    Alternatively: what if Merlin was actually condemned to be executed but just decided to -not let them do that.
