    Summary

    Merlin accidentally reveals his magic to Arthur. It goes about as well as he can expect. Only Arthur is still furious about the lies between them, and refuses to let Merlin back into his role as manservant. So Merlin requests to be made a knight. If Arthur can't trust him to be a friend, at least Merlin can continue to save his life. Their friendship hangs in the balance, and it is unclear whether they are going to come through on the other side stronger than ever, or broken beyond repair.

    Summary

    "I don't think you understand," Merlin said as he started walking backwards, brows wrinkled in confusion. "I can rip your throat out with my teeth and drink your blood. Does that not bother you?" He asked. Arthur finally glanced up from the papers in his hand to look at him, pausing his steps altogether. Merlin waited.

    "...Merlin, you fell over trying to put boots on." He said. Merlin grimaced, looking down at his feet.

    "I hadn't realized you were supposed to wear them all the time." He muttered, uncertain what this had to do with the fact he could murder everyone within a ten mile radius. Arthur sighed. "And those are bold words from someone who can't dress himself!" He added indignantly. Another sigh. Humans did that a lot as it turned out.

    "Merlin, that's your job."

    "And I've taught you several times. It isn't that hard."

    "No, I - " Arthur started and closed his eyes. "I don't have time for this."

    Or

    After living with demons for sixteen years, Merlin decides to explore his human side by venturing to Camelot. Also, he has a destiny to unite his species and bring magic back into Camelot, but he's not too worried about that.

    Summary

    “He’s more than just a servant. He’s a prince. And I’m in love with him.”

    //

    The bandits didn't see any reason to keep Merlin alive when Arthur was the one with real ransom value. Arthur claims that Merlin is much more than a servant...in multiple ways.

    Summary

    Camelot is in peril and the knights can do little to stop the raging dragon determined to burn it all to the ground. They need help, even if Uther is seething at the mere mention of seeking help from a sorcerer.

    But not a regular sorcerer won’t do, they need a Dragonlord and Arthur sets off to find one at most haste. He is not prepared to meet Merlin, not at all.

    Summary

    It’s been five years since Arthur took the throne and Camelot is thriving, thanks to his hard work and willingness to listen to his best friend and closest advisor, Gwen. Dedicated to improving life for his people, Arthur gave up on romance years ago to focus on economic revitalization and building a lasting peace with the Druids.

    But everything changes when a new shop opens next door to the Rising Sun, selling a strange drink from a distant land. Arthur soon finds himself regularly frequenting the Lazy Daisy, drawn to the coffee and the captivating shopkeeper, a man called Merlin who seems strangely familiar. Will he be the one to convince Arthur to let down his defenses and follow his heart?

    Summary

    Due to a really regrettable incident where she saved Arthur's life, Merlin is now the prat's bodyguard. She'd really like to go back to being Morgana's lady-in-waiting. If only because it might stop the overgrown lizard from going 'I told you so.'

    (I wrote the extended action version for nanowrimo. It's a bit less comedic, bit wordier, has extra chapters and some things are shifted around.)

    Summary

    When a noble visits Camelot with her servant-turned-lover, Merlin thinks he and Arthur may actually have a chance. But when Arthur uses the visit as inspiration to instead court Gwen, Merlin develops a tickle in his throat. Then a cough. Then flower petals.

    Beltane is a time for celebrating new life and new births, but Merlin will be lucky to survive until the festival, since the only cure for Hanahaki is to have one’s love returned…and Arthur doesn’t love him.

    Summary

    Merlin has a lot on his plate these days. Well, as he does most days.

    When Morgana's nightmares grow to the point of her accidentally lighting her room aflame, and Gwen grows more and more concerned, Merlin knows its time to intervene.

    Maybe Kilgharrah will have something wise to say on the matter...? (Don't hold your breath.)

    Meanwhile, the royal family prepares for the annual Samhain celebration, as well as the imminent arrival of the House of Doremus, Uther's most recent attempt at arranging a marriage for his son. Arthur, despite himself, can't help but hide his displeasure at the thought.

    What could go wrong?

    Summary

    The day had started off normally enough. Merlin had spent the better part of it swimming around with his friends, hunting the poor fish that were to become his dinner, and listening to his mother berate him for his continued trips to the sea surface.

    As he stared up at the faces of the men who had captured him, Merlin realised that he should probably have listened to her.

    Summary

    Prompt: "There is a beautiful statue of a person in the middle of a large city, and the rumor surrounding the statue is that when they touch hands with their soulmate, they will become human. Naturally, it becomes a perfect photo and video opportunity to pose with while holding its hand. One cute selfie attempt results in an empty statue podium and you just barely catching a very confused person in your arms."

    After centuries of waiting for Arthur’s return, and the ancient king showing no sign of resurrecting anytime soon, Merlin decides to turn himself into a stone statue and wait out the remaining years in a semi-conscious state. He places a charm upon himself, making it so that he will change back once Arthur returns and finds him. A plaque on the statue’s plinth reads as much: “Whoever holds dominion over this soul of stone / Need only touch it to turn it to flesh and bone.” It becomes something of a must-try in the city, and despite thousands of people interacting with the statue every year, no one succeeds in turning him back into a human. That is, until one day…
