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.

Hi guys, I'm looking for a few different none specific stories set in the canon era:

1. Merlin reveals his magic but Arthur already knows and tells him so.

2. Stories kind of like THIS gif set. IE: Post magic reveal, Arthur is now in on the big secret and is rather protective of it and Merlin.

3. Anything where Merlin uses his magic openly in battle, on hunts or generally around Arthur because I am forever heart broken we never got to see this in the show, Merlin and his magic, Arthur and his sword, fighting evil side by side.

4. Arthur being jealous. Someone, anyone, catches Merlin's attention and it oddly infuriates Arthur when Merlin laughs at this persons jokes and smiles that stupid smile.

5. Merlin is sad or isn't himself and Arthur tries to fix it. Like the wonderful scene between them after Freya died, Merlin was incredibly sad and Arthur clearly took note that something wasn't right. Even though he didn't know why Merlin was so unlike himself, it was still important to him to fix it however he could because his best friend was hurting.

6. Merlin hurt, ill, bleeding, beaten, permenantly injured, headachey, nightmare-y, amnesiac, anything like that set in the canon era.

Thank you very much!

Good day everyone.

I'm here for some fic reccing from you guys!

I was hoping that you can help me find fics in which Merlin hides his injuries or pain from Athur. They can be physical or emotional pain.

Thanks a lot guys!
So, I read this Canon Merthur fic a while back where Arthur sort of acts like a jerk to Merlin, who doesn't really understand why. The knights aren't really talking to him either. The treatment of him gets worse and worse until eventually he leaves and joins up with Morgana, though they never really trust each other. Eventually, when they attack Camelot together, Arthur says "you have my trust" or something and its revealed that Arthur already knew about Merlin's magic (and I think they'd already hooked up but I can't remember) and they purposely erased Merlin's memory of the reveal. That and Arthur being a dick to drive Merlin away (Arthur didn't want to do it) were both part of the plan to stop Morgana. Merlin snaps out of it... I think he has black moving tattoos on his body or something? Or maybe I'm getting my fics messed up. But I think he has them and they end up hurting him. Morgana is defeated and there's a happy ending. I remember it being a longer fic. Anyone know what this is?

Hello! So there was this lovely little fic I had read about Merlin finding Arthur immediately after Uther's death, but for the life of me I can't remember what it was called :|

All I remember is the plot involved Merlin hearing the guards rush to Arthur, and then when he finds Arthur, the prince is woozy and slurring. It turns out that he's feeling the effect of the drug that had been slipped into the apple he had in his mouth during the festivities, and is now unstable: emotionally and physically. The basic plot revolved around Merlin taking care of him, safely out of the public eye so that Arthur can grieve without gossip? He's also surprised at Arthur's open display of emotion which is how he realises that Arthur is drugged.

That's all I have unfortunately, and if anybody knows what it is I will be the happiest person alive ;__; Thanks either way!

I have been looking for a fic where Merlin is the court sorcerer and Arthur and Gwen are married. They are having trouble getting pregnant and Merlin helps them out. He willingly sacrifices his life for their child and doesn't tell them the consequences of the magic.

I think I may be confusing two different stories. There's one where Merlin fights against Arthur and Gwen, but they do it anyways. The magic selects Merlin for a sacrifice in the end anyways.

I am also looking for a fic where Arthur is king and he wants to help all his subjects get to avalon and sends for a delegate from avalon. It turns out to be Merlin and they fall in love.

Thanks for the help!

Hi all. This is my first time posting here, so forgive me if i do it wrong please. Im looking for a specific story i read a while ago which i cant remember the title of. It was modern AU, that im sure of. The rest that i can remember is that Arthur has a young son. I cant remember if its Mordred or an original character. Anyway, his son has magic, and i think Gaius recommends or hires Merlin to teach him to control it. Im pretty sure it takes place at Arthur's country estate. Thats really all i can remember. Any ideas? Thanks.
Hi! I'm looking for a specific story.

It's set in the modern day era (today). An immortal Merlin is walking in the park when a frisbee or ball lands nearby (or hits him). When returning the item, he's shocked to discover all his Camelot friends (Arthur, Gwen, Gwaine, Lancelot, etc.) having a picnic in the park and they invite him to join them. They don't remember their past lives. Later on, Gwen is one of the first to remember, but Merlin convinces her not to tell the others. Merlin starts integrating within the group of friends. During this time, there is an "evil force" plot going on, and at some point Merlin is shot, thus jostling Arthur's, and a few others, memory of their past lives. Merlin loses his immortality due to the magic bullet that shot him.

I'm pretty sure I this on ao3 or fanfiction.net.
I can't remember any pairings.

Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you for your time.

HEllo! I'm looking for this fic where Arthur is a cop, and he doesn't talk much or at all. Merlin's friends decide he isn't good enough for merlin, so they decide to break them up. The do actually break them up, and then start to regret it. Gwaine was the one who came up with theidea.

Hello everybody,
I read The Arrangement by olavina about a year ago on ao3 and was dying to read it again, but it has been deleted.

After centuries of persecution, the magical world is on the brink of disappearance. Only the foretold union of a great mage with his dragon-born soulmate can save it, but Arthur is being groomed to destroy magic for good, and Merlin has already been claimed by another. Dystopia, Reincarnation, Dragonverse, Angst, Love Triangles, Soulbonding

If anyone happens to know where it can be found or could send me a copy, I would be so grateful!
My email adress: anoosha.s89@gmail.com

Thank you in advance!

This is my first time posting anything here, so I am really not sure if this is the way to go for it. Please correct me if I am wrong!

Anyway. I was wondering if anybody could rec me some fics where Arthur is ridiculously shy or plagued by social anxiety? Other fics with similar themes (basically mentally ill or socially stunted Arthur I suppose) are welcome as well.

Preferable M/A, but I do not mind no pairing at all either.

There is unfortunately far more fics with Merlin in these situations, rather than the ones with Arthur and whilst that is fine, I wish there would have been a more equal division.

Someone on Tumblr asked me for help locating a fic.  Here's their description:

I've been looking (for more than a month :/) for this Merthur fic where Arthur knows about the magic and they have a secret relationship.  The knights find out along the way.  In the end Merlin is hurt (stabbed I think and passes out) and Arthur is really worried.  The knights tell Arthur to go care for Merlin because they know they love each other.

Is there a fic where Uther discovers the prophecy about the Once and Future King and disowns Arthur? Preferably Merthur?
06 February 2016 @ 01:25 am
I'm wondering if there are any fics where the whole Arthur/Gwen - Gwen/Lancelot drama is altered to a Arthur/Merlin - Merlin/Lancelot drama? Basically the core story of love and betrayal but with Merlin as the central figure instead of Gwen. It could even be Arthur that falls for Lance instead of Merlin.

I'm really hoping someone thought of this before and wrote some fics. TIA.

Hey everyone, I read this fic a long  time  ago. I'm pretty  sure  it  was  on a03. It was from morgana's point  of  view .  It was  in  a  modern  setting ,  and merlin  had gotten in an accident  and  she was comforting  Arthur . But she hadn't  seen  Arthur  in  years  and didn't  know  he  was  gay, and they start  to  get to know  each  other  again  while  they  wait  for  news  on  Merlin .  I've been  looking  for  this  forever , and  any  help  would  be  great .

Buried under my bookmarks is a fic somewhere where Arthur got turned into a rabbit that Merlin adopted (and named Penn, I think, and he doesn't know it's Arthur). It's also a magic reveal fic because he does magic in front of rabbit!Arthur. Arthur turns back into a human every morning, I think. Also features a pining!Merlin who lets his woes out on rabbit!Arthur. Help, please!

FOUND! The Tale of the Teapot by Moorishflower. Thanks, justine_lark~!

Hi, I don't know if any of these are out there but I just thought it would be fun to read a merthur fic set in the canon era where Merlin isn't a warlock but simply a devoted manservant who tries to serve Arthur as best as he can and ends up in a relationship with him even without a "magic" destiny.

Hey guys!

I've been looking for this fic which involves Arthur and Merlin heading to university, they've been friends since they were kids. Arthur is interested in studying and stuff, but Merlin wants to explore, so he breaks up with Arthur, and gets with Gwaine, but in the end he realises it wasn't all its pumped up to be, so he wants Arthur back.

Could someone please help me find it??

Hi there! I'm looking for two Merlin fanfics I read a while ago but can't remember the name of. The first I do vaguely remember that Merlin's magic is revealed and Arthur takes it badly. The King ends up leaving a scar on his friend's face and either banishes him or Merlin leaves. I think he goes to the Perilous Lands and creates a safe haven there for druids. Arthur, his knights, and his people end up travelling there after Morgana's most recent victorious attack on Camelot. There they find Merlin/Emrys and he has 'adopted' two magical children, a boy and a girl. That's about all I can remember.

I'm also looking for a fic where Grettir appears at the Round Table and tells them they need Magic to win the battle they're about to face. I think they believe Merlin to be dead but instead he's hiding out in the Perilous Lands (I think) as Emrys. I'm nearly sure that it ended up that Grettir had never appeared to Arthur and his knights, giving him the warning/message.

Thank you in advance for anyone able to help me find these stories again!

ok maybe no long time ago, maybe around 4 years. Is was a fic in which Merlin was uther's son. What i rememer it is that Merlin is twin of Arthur, the day they born the midwife knwe that Merlin has magic so she took away and Uther never knew that he had another son. Meanwhile Hunith had lost her son, so when she found a baby (Merlin) she took care of him. Many years later Uther know the truth, but Merlin had been kinapped, everyone is looking for him (i think is Leon who found him) but Merlin has a bracelet that is killim him because his magic, and just Uther can take away for him. So everyone knows that Merlin has magic and Arthur is very protective with him because he thinks Uther is going to try to kill Merlin.

That the only think i remember, also it was incomplete. but i don´t care, i just need to found it. So please if anyone knows about the fic, let me know. :)
