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).

Can somebody please, please, please suggest some fics which:

a) show Arthur in a vulnerable position (hurt/kidnapped etc)
b) show Merlin as someone incredibly protective of Arthur and basically a BAMF
c) show the knights appreciating how protective Merlin is of Arthur.

There's such an overload of whump!Merlin fics in this fandom, that I'm really struggling to find fics featuring whump!arthur. =( I'd love some long plotty fics (>20k) with Merthur (preferably bottom!arthur) or friendship and pre-slash is fine too.
Thank you!!! x

Hi! I'm looking for a specific fanvid about Arthur. It was very funny, and most importantly the song it was set to was called Arthur and it was from a musical I don't remember the name of :(

It's got to be at least three or four years old.


20 December 2014 @ 01:36 am
So I was wondering if anyone have the full draft of the story, that the author said was finished in her lj, she promised to send the full story to those who would ask her, I don't know why she never got around finshing editing and posting it, but now she's not answering and I'd really like to be able to read it in its entirety, as for the matter of consent, I get from this entry that she wouldn't mind if someone shared her work (I could be wrong, but it seems unlikely),so did anyone recieve it from her, and if yes, would you agree to send it to me? tks!

Hi I'm looking for a modern au but I can only really remember one small part. So fingers crossed and here goes. It is set around Christmas time and I think Merlin and Arthur live together. This is the only bit I really remember. Merlin, Arthur and all the usual gang are sitting around watching TV  in their PJs Hunith is also there and they manage to persuade Urther to get changed in to some as well.( I'm not 100% sure but I think there is an accident outside the flat)  As I said this is all I can remember so any help would be most grateful.

Hello everyone :)
I'm looking for one specific fic I read some time ago where merlin did magic before arthur, afterwards in his chambers Arthur hit him but took care of removing his ring before so as not to hurt him, then told him that ke knew all along and to be more cautious in the future, I remember reading it on ffnet.

And general request, canon fic or canons AU centered around Arthur, Action/Adventure, bits of Arthurian legend are welcome, as well as historical accuracy, developped storyline and believable medieval settings (or not, can't be too picky I suppose, I'll settle for some quick wikipedia shipped knowledge :/ ), but no MERTHUR, actually I'd like to see a story where the evolution of their friendship includes their class differences and social statuts, or shows from time to time Merlin's ignorance of court protocole and such, acting a little naive sometimes due to his peasant upbringing and youth compared to Arthur...

Yeah, I feel like I'm giving instructions for a tailored suit :) If you took the time to read this, just rec me whatever story which encompass any of the features above, but please I'd really prefer it if it was gen (mild slash with very few romantics undertones is okay I guess)

Hey everyone! I'm hoping you can rec me fics where Merlin is lonely. I was reading "When Nights are too Quiet by mollrach13(short but amazing) and one of the readers said something along the lines of "lonely merlin is quite canon". Here's the story if anyone wants to read it! "

So anything where Merlin is lonely, someone notices he's lonely or he goes ignored. Gen is fine, along with pairings. I just dont want the pairing to be the focus! Hopefully you can help 😄

The one I remember is that it's Modern AU with college setting, Arthur is a lonely prat, Merlin is a punk with a side of Gwaine, and they kind of hook up platonically. However, Arthur realise (or thinks) that everyone hates him and Merlin chooses Gwaine instead. The final push is when Uther kind of fired him (or disregard a coveted position). Arthur left and cut all communication where he met Hunith (not as Merlin's mom), Lance, and becomes a small town activist. He came back when he heard Uther is dead and find Merlin again.
I love it so much. Can anyone help me find it?

This has been driving me insane for the past hour and google is not my friend today. Here's what I remember (fuzzily)

Arthur join a theater group (I think) and sees pictures of Merlin, who was an actor there, many years ago. He finds some secret spot in the theater and it allows him to travel back in time, where he meets Merlin from the past. It must be reincarnation, as Merlin from the past is dating Arthur, and explains to modern day Arthur that he will find his Merlin in his time, but Arthur wants to be with him. They have sex, before Arthur travels back to his own time, I believe.

Sorry, I said it was fuzzy at best. Mainly what I remember is this lovely quote, in which Arthur says Merlin is the most beautiful thing he's ever seen and Merlin says that it has been his great fortune that Arthur thinks that, in every lifetime.

FOUND. turns out its RPS

I am looking for this fic I read a while back where Morgana and Leon are Mordreds parents and Merlin is their nanny. Anyway Arthur has a huge crush on Merlin so he hangs out at his sisters a lot and he's really nervous about telling Merlin, I know at one point he tries and ends up getting scared and making up a fake date which Merlin helps him get ready for. At one point Merlin is dating a pet shop clerk and Arthur is really jealous. I think it was a series of three also I think it was on archive our own. Thank you for your time! Please help if you can.

So, I've got done reading a fic where Arthur has a stutter. He still ranted and raved when he was mad and still argued with Merlin but there was an underlying vulnerability to him: embarrassed often, was sick at one point, very tired and thus easily lead around by Merlin, etc.

I need more fics of this nature: Arthur letting down his guard and being vulnerable. Whether due to simple reasons like he's sick or something extreme like torture. I'm tagging with dark!fic but it can be sickeningly sweet too

I remember reading a fic or possibly a series with fat appreciation and overweight Arthur. It was a canon AU where Merlin enjoyed feeding Arthur and fattening him up. I'm pretty sure it was on AO3, but I can't find it again for the life of me! Can anyone possibly help? thx!

So there are two stories I want to reread but cannot find.

1. Arthur (or possibly Uther) wants to find Emrys and they have a druid imprisoned and they keep asking him questions and he's kind of an idiot so he keeps giving things away. I remember at one point Merlin got so frustrated he used a spell to make the druid unable to open his mouth. It was really funny. I'm fairly certain that it was on fanfiction and that it was complete.
2. I remember a lot less of this one. It took place in the future and everyone had been reincarnated (Merlin probably had been alive the whole time but I don't know for sure) and i think the people remembered parts of their lives in Camelot as they grew up. The only part I remember for certain was Merlin (and possibly Gwaine) found Percival (by accident) working at a cafe or something. I remember they didn't really get to talk to him before he got called back to work and his co worker called him Percy. It was either on fanfiction or AO3

If thinks they know either of these stories please let me know it is driving me nuts. Thanks

Looking for a specific fic.  It's a modern AU that starts with Merlin at a job interview for I think a museum?  And when he goes in it turns out Arthur is one of the interviewers.  They had a terrible break up pre-fic and now Arthur hates Merlin and thinks he stole from him but Merlin has no idea what he's talking about and he's sure he won't get the job because of it.

Hi all,
I'm looking for a fic where Merlin is Arthur's assistant (I think Arthur runs a security company). After work one night Merlin walks home through a park where he is attacked by two men. I think he was listening to his iPod when it happened. Afterwards Arthur keeps coming around to Merlin's flat and gets Gwaine to improve the security in Merlin's flat.
I read it quite recently but I can not for the life of me find it again.
Will love anyone who can give me the link to it or even just the name of the fic or author.
Massive thanks to anyone who helps.

Well, the subject sort of says it all.  Merlin leaves or is banished and he goes to another kingdom and becomes an advisor for another king.  The knights come looking for him to bring him back to Camelot.

I msearching for a fic, here what's i remember:

Modern AU, Merlin is a cook for Morgana and Arthur, the prince, courts him. Morgana and Arthur are cousins.
Merlin has magic

Thanks for your help (it s driving me mad)

I'm looking for a specific a/b/o fic here.

Um merlin and arthur were cousins,

And merlin was an alpha and arther was a teenager omega.

I think it was arthurs first heat and

Merlin was kinda using him...not rape though. But kind of non-con I think?

Arthur ended up pregnant and merlin found out that by reading some newspapers...

The article said it was morgana's baby but the kid's hair was black so merlin kind of felt that is his child.

Sorrt there's not much details.

Any help will be thanked a lot!!

Love you all amd please feel free to comment!

Can I have some whump!Arthur fics? Especially, ones where Arthur is betrayed or that set during the same time period as in the show.

I'm looking for an Episode and i don't know if i've dreamt it or what.
Arthur and Merlin are in Arthurs chambers and they are talking about Uther losing his mind and then Merlin says that Arthur has a lot of time before it's going to happen to him and that he is still young.
Anyone know wich episode this is? Or is it just my imagination ;)
