Looking for a Merthur fic set during the 60s or 70s at an advertisement agency. I remember Arthur being Merlin's superior in some way or other, them working on a cigarette campaign, references to The Beatles "A Hard Night's Day" and them arguing about the ethics of lying about cigarettes being healthy in said campaign. Arthur is something of a womanizer, iirc, but ends up admitting he's trying to compensate for really wanting dick? Something like that. Any help would be very much appreciated!

I was going through Delicious and discovered that a couple of my Merlin fics are linked to deleted journals and I was hoping someone could let me know if they are at another location. I didn't see them in the "don't share" category so maybe they still live out there somewhere.

1. The King Fell and then Came the End - http://sweet-poppy111.livejournal.com/1630.html - Mordred struck the killing blow. Arthur lay, abandoned. Merlin cries, alone.

2. Mental Note - http://social-retard86.livejournal.com/132357.html - Enchanted journals: what is written in one appears in the other.

Hi all! Long time lurker, first time poster...

I'm hunting for a fic that I think is a one or two shot on lj, which might be why I'm having such a hard time finding it...

The main thread of the story is that Merlin is a servant in Uther's household. He's quite young, and isn't the greatest at helping Gaius with serving, etc., but Uther has given him a special task for the upcoming dinner he has with business partners: to wow the guests with his magic. If he does well, Uther promises Merlin that he will have Gaius take him into town to get whatever he likes. Merlin really wants a dog/puppy, and so he is very nervous about his performance.

Arthur in the story is quite sweet and is a friend to Merlin, but doesn't really play a very large role as far as I can remember.

Does this ring a bell at all?

Thanks for taking the time to read this! xx

So I know that I read both of them on ao3 but I can't seem to find them.

1. Merlin is put in the stocks because he has been too disobedient towards Arthur in public. Arthur isn't angry he just has to show his father that he got his servant under control. Merlin is supposed to stay in the stocks for half an hour but one of guards apparently hates him and doesn't let him out nor does he give him water and I think it's summer. and I remember that Arthur put him in the dungeons to cool him down afterwards?

2.This one is quite brutal. Merlin reveals his magic and Arthur doesn't want him as his manservant anylonger. Merlin is still a servant. Anyhow some knights think that he is up for grabs. Merlin tries to tell Arthur but he rejects him until two new knights tell him what's happening to Merlin.

Both fics were Merthur. Sounds familiar to anyone?

Thanks for your help!

Terribly sorry to do this but I really need you guys help. I'm looking for this fic where Merlin and Arthur are in an established relationship and Gwain doesn't approve because he's in love with Merlin and because Arthur used to hunt people like Merlin. His disapproval reaches new heights when Merlin is kidnapped by Arthur's father who's looking for both of them. There is a point where Arthur proposes a trade and ends up unleashing a shit ton of stuff because of the secrets kept in his father's organization. I also remember Morgana working against Uther because he had kidnapped her son and is using him, her son I believe is Mordrerd. Thats all I can remember right now.
 
 
I read a time travel fic where Merlin becomes Arthur manservant know he is Emrys and proceeds to use his almost princely power over the magical creatures and people.

1. I want more fics like that where Merlin comes, in season 1, with magical knowledge and the fact that is Emrys.

2. Prince Merlin masquerading as Arthur's man servant.

3. Anytime travel with the pairing of Merlin/Arthur (can start with other pairings book must end with Merlin and Arthur)

4. Any fics where Merlin is loved by everyone, be it peasants or Nobles that meet him.

5. I really would like to read fics where Arthur and the Knights overprotective Merlin or treat him as if he were fragile. If there's danger they push him behind them. They help Merlin down from his horse, kiss the knuckles of his hands, and etcetera.

Thank you. I would like them all to be Arthur/Merlin. I wood prefer that they were long. If they are WIP please let me know especially if they haven't been updated in awhile. I don't mind WIP as long as they're actually being updated.

Hello! I'm looking for two fics I read a while ago based on the same episode. The first has Merlin enchanted to fall in love with shade!Lancelot instead of Gwen, and in the other Morgana remembers that Gwen's first love was Merlin and enchants them to betray Arthur together.  I think they were both on Ao3, but I can't quite remember.  I know they were both endgame Merthur.

I'd also accept any recs for an enchanted Merlin of any kind. :)

Thank you all!
 
 
 
I read a fic a some months ago...I think it was fairly long. All I specifically remember is that there a are a couple of scenes---sort of beginning-ish---where Merlin appears with magic and disappears, and he's pretty sassy. I think maybe then he lurks waiting for Arthur in a passageway...and maybe then there's some mutual seduction...and then anything else I think I remember might be from another story.

This is one I read years ago. I think Arthur was either a regent or newly a king, so this might have been originally published around 2011-2012.

Merlin is revealed within the first chapter or two — I think a sorcerer attacked while court was in session and Merlin saved everyone by prevention the ceiling from crushing them.

IIRC, Merlin and Arthur's reaction to the reveal was kind of funny. I may be thinking of a different fic, but I think Merlin was more exasperated than afraid or betrayed when Arthur had him arrested. He just sort of sat in his cell until Arthur got over it.

Most vividly, I remember the ending.

Magic in this fic was portrayed as being highly elemental. In the final battle with Morgana, Merlin kills her by pushing her face into a lake and freezing it over, then waiting for her to stop moving. I remember Arthur begging him to finish her off quickly, and Merlin explaining that he couldn't because he didn't have any way to. It was a pretty dark scene.

Hi everyone!

I've been going crazy trying to remember this fic. I only remember a specific scene from the fic.

They are in Arthur's chambers when Arthur tells Merlin that "I keep telling myself, this time he'll tell me, this time he trusts me enough", or something similar. Arthur already knew about Merlin's magic but Merlin hadn't come forward to let him know of the magic himself. And Merlin thinks he should have known Arthur would look at sign of trust to be entrusting your life in someone's hands.

Does this ring a bell for anyone?

I'll be forever grateful to whoever can help me find it!
 
 
It can be for any reason- not just because Arthur found of about Merlin's magic

Thanks! :)

Hi.
I've got myself a problem, saved the rong link for a fic, and now don't know where to look for it. Please help!
Arthur is king. He's mortally wounded in a battle. Before death he wants to make things right. He gives Lancelot permission to court Gwen, and asks Gwaine to look after Merlin knowing that the knight is in love with Merlin. But Merlin has other plans. He heals Arthur nearly dieing himself in the process fully expecting to be exectuted after.
I remember Merlin on his knees near screaming Arthur when knights run into the tent.
Don't remember much of the end, only that Arthur tells Gwaine that Merlin won't be needing taking care after (or may be it was in a different fic?)
Please help!

Hi! Misswinterhill closed off their livejournal, and I can read the fics that they've posted on ao3, but I still can't seem to find Emrys (the Sandman crossover) and The One Where Merlin Dances Ballet (I think that's what it's called). Does anyone have a copy of those? Preferably in .pdf or .epub but honestly any format is fine. If they don't want their fics distributed, please let me know as well!

Please help if you can, Emrys is one of my favorite fics ever ; _ ;

1. I love Uther but thats mostly because I was watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer before I started watching Merlin. I would love to read any Merlin fanfics Uther get along/likes Merlin. I'm not exactly looking for Uther shipping Merthur, more along the lines of Uther showing favoritism towards Merlin but not in a romantic sense. thank you.

2. I kind of like season 3 episode 10 and want to see if there are any fix that actually have Arthur running away to become a farmer but it has to be merthur. Thank you.

3. Are there anywhere Uther banishes Arthur in Merlin of course goes with him. I've already read Time of Trial by shinetheway, I want to read more of them. Thank you in advance.This of course has to be merthur.

CANON ERA SETTINGS AND MERTHUR FOR ALL PLEASE. THANK YOU BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE!

Hello,

I'm trying to find a canon-era fic where Merlin gatecrashes a big feast/celebration and basically puts everyone in their place with a sassy commentary. He hates Arthur and Gwen (I think) and shows off his magic to intimidate everyone.

I think he was banished for his magic (or left of his own accord) and then returned to gatecrash the feast.

Any help would be appreciated.

Ta :)
