Any questions, problems, doubts, please leave a comment here.

Have fun! :)

ETA: This (now sticky, yay progress!) post is for questions about how stuff works, e. g. how to tag your post, how to deal with formatting woes, if it's okay to promote your community, etc.

This here entry is NOT the place to look for stories/art/vids/podfic/whatever. I'm not active in this fandom beyond running merlin_finders and can't help you find stuff.

We have a lot of generous members who can, though. After you've joined the community, you can create a post of your own to ask people to find whatever you're looking for (as long as it's Merlin-related).

Please read our rules on posting and tagging before you create any entries of your own. You can find those on our profile page. :)

Return of ETA: I'm going to leave unanswered and delete every comment that's looking for stuff starting July 1st, 2014. This is getting ridiculous. READ THE POST BEFORE YOU COMMENT.

The story I'm searching for was read on livejournal, I think. It might have been titled Sixteen Days? Merlin was taken prisoner in a castle/fortress and Arthur, Lancelot, Gwen, and Morgana are there to rescue him. Sex-slavery is involved. Merlin's magic was collared/restrained and he is being drugged to keep him compliant.

I believe Lancelot was the person who posed as a "buyer" to get Merlin out. Because of the drugs he was kept on his friends have to wean him off the concoction -- at one point Merlin causes a magical explosion of some kind?

-Arthur knows about the magic (I think)
-Morgana is not evil

I'm really itching to give this one again but I can't find it! A bit of help, please?

Current Mood: Hopeful

I'm pretty sure this was just one fic, but it might be two. What I remember was that Arthur and Merlin were searching for some sort of monster that was threatening Camelot. They find its cave and with it a lake filled with its victims.
I can't remember if the monster reveals Merlin's magic, or if Merlin himself does but Arthur does not take it well. He attempts to rape Merlin and may actually succeed? The monster mayhave been manipulating him, I don't remember but I think Merlin was going to let Arthur do it anyway because he loved him or something like that.
I don't know entirely how it ends,but I think there was a creepy poem about the monster.

This could be a different fic, but I'm pretty sure the monster had once attacked Ealdor? The children had been getting sick and then being snatched by the monster in the night. When Will got sick Merlin had snuck out to see him and saw the monster trying to take Will. I think this was how will found out about Merlin's magic because he made it rain salt and iron on the monster, apparently defeating it? and the next day the citizens of Ealdor take all the salt and iron that had fallen and buryed it all in front of their doorsteps to ensure they can't be harmed by the monster again.
As I said, that could be a completely different fic, but I'm pretty sure it was a flashback during the main story.
If anyone has any idea, please let me know and if the fic is deleted but you have a copy, my email is menono1011@yahoo.com Thankyou!

I don't remember everything, but it was a fairly long fic where Arthur is king and Merlin has been quietly miserable the whole time. I don't think Arthur knows about his magic. Some prince from a kingdom of magic comes along and convinces Merlin to come with him back home, where he can use magic as he likes. I'm not sure, but I think it had something to do with the idea that Arthur wasn't actually the Once and Future King?? Anyways, Merlin agrees, but ends up going back to Arthur in time to help with a battle at the border. The other prince goes with.

Anybody have any ideas? I've been looking for AGES.

I'm hoping to find a specific fic I read 6 or 7 years ago on LJ and don't remember the name or author. It was several chapters long. My memory is slightly fuzzy on the details but I'm hoping someone will recognize it. What I remember is that both Arthur and Merlin are secret agents and I believe Morgana works with Arthur. Maybe she is his handler? It had several action scenes, Arthur and Merlin keeping details about their jobs from each other while a relationship is growing between them, and a visit with Hunith.

Thanks so much for help or advice on where to find this fic!

Update: It has been found! The fic is Shadowplay by adelagia

Asking on behalf of my friend, my friend is going into hospital for minor surgery and she really enjoys Arthur hurt/comfort fanfictions. Any suggestions would be most welcome. Hurt/sick scared Athur basically any where he’s voularable and Merin is looking after him.


Hey! I've been looking for this specific fic on-and-off for months. It starts with Gaius breaking pots. I think the first line may literally be "It starts with Gaius dropping pots/breaking vials" or something to that effect.

Basically whatever Merlin did at the Isle of the Blessed didn't quite take, and Gaius isn't exactly alive anymore. He like begs Merlin to kill him, which Merlin eventually does, and then Arthur exiles him. I don't think there was technically a magic "reveal" per se.

But from there it's very epic-feeling, though iirc it's not especially long. There's next to no dialogue, I think at some point he apprentices to a Inuit shaman and sees dragons from different regions? It's really cool. At the end he returns to Camelot.

There's not really like...a plot per se. It's more just establishing this universality of magic that's cool as hell, and I've been jonesing to read it again. Thank you!

Hi, I've been looking for this Merlin fic forever. Hopefully you can help me out.

It starts with Merlin and Arthur in Arthur's apartment and Merlin leaving right after.

In the fic, Arthur is in love with Merlin and think they are dating, but Merlin thinks they are just hooking up and he is hooking up with other people (I think one is Cenred).

Arthur finally asks Merlin why he is acting so standoffish since he thinks the two are in a relationship, and when Merlin realizes that Arthur actually cares for him he starts to show affection back.

However, I think they run into Cenred or another guy Merlin hooked up with in a restaurant or a club, and Arthur thinks Merlin has been cheating on him and leaves.

(There are Morgana-Arthur sibling moments)

They finally makeup after Merlin explains.

Hey I’m looking for any fics where Bradley is the one who is hurt/sick/insecure, basically where he is the volunarable one and Colin is there to comfort him.

Sorry for the bare tags, really didn't know what to tag this as... In any case, I'm looking for a Merthur fic on AO3. I'm pretty sure it was rated explicit but don't quote me on that. The whole fic takes place in a forest. Arthur finds himself drawn to the forest and he's not sure why. He runs into Merlin in the middle of the woods (he knew Merlin from childhood or something similar I'm pretty sure? but maybe not) and it turns out they're soulmates. They have some Revelations and magic happens and it has a happy ending and like I said, probably an NSFW scene. If anyone could help me find this that'd be great, thank you!

I’m looking for the story ‘Happinesses is a warm shower’ with Simpolton Arthur but it appears to have been deleted does anyone have a copy of it. If so my email is bronwen100@gmail.com

I'm looking for an older fic where Arthur and Merlin are out in the cold, snowy woods by themselves. Arthur falls through ice and Merlin saves him using his magic. (Merlin isn't sure how to save him but keeps thinking "up"). They huddle together for warmth (Merlin remembers Will's mom once had to cuddel with someone who fell through the ice). Back at the castle Merlin keeps trying to keep Arthur warm by piling him with coats and keeping the fire high. He fidgets and can't stop thinking about ice. Arthur finally calms him and they kiss and get together.

Hi everyone! :)

I was hopping you could help me find a fic I read a while ago..
It was in Canon Era and it was a Merlin/Arthur fic. I remember that Arthur found out about Merlin’s magic or he told him (??) and arthur forced him to use a collar or bracelets that presented him from using his magic.
After a while Merlin got really sick and Arthur took them off himself, I think?

Can you guys help me?


Edit: Found in the comments.

I'm looking for a Merlin and Harry Potter crossover I read a while ago where Merlin buys Malfoy Manor from Draco and his mother and he lets them still live there and unicorns and dragons start living in the backyard. I think it's a reincarnation fic as well, I think Leon had a daughter who becomes the new keeper of the unicorns or something. And Dudley is Gilli, I think.

Does anyone know what this is? Thank you!

It's an Age difference Modern AU.
So Arthur is taking care of Morgana because of reasons and Merlin and Morgana are friends. When they grow up there is some tension, which like increases when Merlin has his birthday at their house and all of them play never have I ever or something similar.
And Arthur also had a past relationship with Gwen, Lance and I think Gwaine as well, at the same time.. threesome

Please Help

I just finished reading 'Out of the Night' by myrimidryad and now I am obsessed with finding more fics with Merlin as a shapeshifter. 

Does anyone know of any good ones? It doesn't have to be where he turns into a wolf, anything works. Gen or pre-slash is preferred. Thank you!

I'm looking for a specific fic called "In The Middle of The Story" by stella_bella. It's basically revolving around a quote from The Last Unicorn about "happy ending cannot come in the middle of the story" and the summary is along the line of:

"Merlin is a long-time veteran of the streets who uses his magic to survive. One night he meets a former high-powered businessman named Arthur and takes him along for the ride."

It is AU - Modern Setting. Arthur has a career crisis basically, Merlin has tattoos, and there was definitely an 'age different' tag.

I remember reading it recently, but I could not find it anywhere. It is a very gorgeous and lovely fic. I would love to read it again, because it is my go to every time I'm down and wanting a bit of "hope after the storm" type.

If anyone has it, it would be wonderful if you could send me a copy to march.hare.usagi@gmail.com

Thank you so so much!

No polyamory or threesome, though.

Thanks in advance for your recs!

Édit : I’m also interested in fic with no real cheating but one of the guy leaves a girl for the other guy
