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.

I read a fic awhile ago and usually see it while searching for new reads, but now that I want to re-read it I can't find it! All that I remember was that it involves Arthur fighting a magical tree against Merlin's advice and Merlin ends up dying (temporarily) for it. He comes back somehow and Arthur is relieved. It was either merthur or pre-slash. Do any of you know where I can find this fic again?

Hey! I love Merthur and have always wanted to imagine Merlin ruling Camelot in Season 5 instead of Gwen. But too often the the stories only involve Merthur's romance and not the long term affects, or just have Merlin as a Court Sorcerer.

Are there any stories where Arthur is King and Arthur and Merlin become a couple, then Arthur proposes and Merlin actually marries him and is declared King of Camelot alongside Arthur. I want the story to be more focused on the after marriage part with Merlin as King.

Hi, everyone! Since I watched the TV show, I fell in love with the character of Mithian: she was badass, kind and worried about Merlin's opinion. I was kinda sad that she was only on two episodes.

So... I was wondering if there are fanfics about Merlin and Mithian's frienship (only frienship, please, no romantic relationship). I prefer them to be canon-ish (not modern au's) and Merthur (even if it doesn't focus on it). However, gen is okay.
I would also love if people were surprised by this frienship.

I don't know if there are fics like this, but I would love to read them.
Thank you in advance!

So, I just finished reading Chatroom by neuroticnick, where merlin’s really, painfully, shy IRL, blushing, startling, having a hard time meeting people’s eyes and speaking with a low voice....

ANYWAY, so now I’m just craving this less confident aspect of our favourite warlock’s personnality, anything in the spectrum of social awkwardness is welcome, from slightly self-effacing behaviour to hardcore social anxiety, but, y’know, the more timid the better ;)

Modern era prefered, slash or gen however you please as long as the focus is on Merlin and Arthur, oh, and, speaking of Arthur....confident, charismatic and dashing is my jam ;)
its merlin's 17th birthday and he does not realize  that he is  part veela

I'm looking for any completed fanfics in which Merlin used to be an assassin and accidentally reveals some of his skills. I've been looking for a while and haven't found any, so if it varies a little that's alright.
Hey guys, I'm looking for any fluffy fics where Merlin just enjoys serving Arthur and expresses it in the fic, either just to the reader or to Arthur or another character. Bonus points if he's lowkey worshipful of Arthur. No serious s&m please, just cute domestic stuff! Thanks so much!

Also, I'm new to LJ so I'm super sorry if I'm not doing this right! Lol just let me know!

Youtube has removed one of my fav videos *sobs* Damn, I should have downloaded it when I had the chance. Does anyone have a copy of the fanvid "Merlin & Arthur - The Guide how to NOT fall in love with someone...and completely fail at it"? It was so cute and fluffy, and I really want to watch it again.
Any help is appreciated!

There's this fic and I only remember this ONE SPECIFIC scene:

Arthur and Merlin are in Arthur's room and Arthur is furious because he knows about Merlin's magic and then Merlin makes a comment about Lancelot knowing and Arthur pushes Merlin up against the wall and now he's even more furious because WHY DID LANCELOT KNOW BEFORE ME and then there's some rough(?) sex.

So yeah, if you know where that's from, or even if you have any recs* for Arthur being super jealous of how close Merlin and Lancelot are, that'd be fantastic.

*Nothing with Lancelot bashing, obviously, I mean how could you even??

*** Not found, can't seem to get rid of that tag

Are there any canon AU stories where cis woman Merlin pretends to be a man when she comes to Camelot, and is then made Arthur's manservant? Bonus points if Arthur questions his own sexuality because he starts falling in love with Merlin thinking she's a man. Any rating or genre welcome, I'm just really craving this type of fic.

(Basically, this is a little bit like a Mulan AU, I guess? At least where the cis woman pretends to be cis male bit is concerned.)

Hey, this is the first time I've used LJ but I'm in desperate need of help finding a story i read. It's a modern AU where Arthur saves Merlin from committing suicide. Merlin signs a contract to basically become Arthur's slave, but they fall in love and Arthur gets rid of the contract eventually. I also remember that some detective(Gwaine?) has it out for Arthur and gets them separated. Gwen thinks that Merlin is suffering from Stockholm-Syndrome and has him in a group home. I don't remember how it ends, but I really want to read it again, if it helps I think I read it on fanfiction.net, Thank you in advance!

I am new in this place, and new to the fandom, and I recently watched all the seasons. So now I want to read tons of fanfic.

Do you happen to know of any fanfic that has the theme/similar theme to the "Pretty Woman" movie? Modern or Canon Au is ok. Merthur please?

Thank you!

Heya, these are one I've been looking for for ages and another that I didn't realize I hadn't saved.

1. A short fic set at the end of The Poisoned Chalice where instead of Gwen kissing Merlin when he wakes up, it's Arthur. I think its from Gwens pov.

2. Basically Arthur and Merlin have shades of sado/masochistic tastes. I think its a 2-parter? Merlin keeps pressing on his bruises when he's alone because he enjoys the feeling, and Arthur realizes it and it turns out he enjoys hurting him. There a scene where Arthur goes hunting for a specific deer and has the hide made into a whip specifically for the two of them to use, and anothere scene where for whatever reason Merlin is to be flogged and Arthur is forced to do it and they are horrified because this is essentially an intimate, private act being made into a punishment in the middle of the courtyard in front of people.

I think the first one wont be too hard to find but I haven't found the second again since i read it.

Edit: It looks like this is a deleted fic called "Even the best of friends" by rah_rah_ramen. They aren't on the "no go" author list, so I hope someone can send me a copy!

Hi, all!

I'm looking for a Modern AU fic where Merlin and Arthur had grown up together and were best friends. However, they had a falling out., but later on, Hunith had to work for Uther. I think then Arthur had gotten drunk and told Merlin that he loved him.

Any ideas?

Any recommendations for fics where merlin is strangely quiet/ obedient/ acting like a proper servant and arthur is disconcerted and concerned? possibly because of a fight or something?
Thanks in advance :)
06 November 2016 @ 04:21 pm
Are there any fics where Merlin is hospitalized often due to a chronic illness? Preferably Arthur find out/meets him at the hospital and then visits him. Thanks

The movie The Mists of Avalon! I do remember one that was a few chapters long and had that sex scene between Arthur and Morgana, I was wondering if there are any other?

Also, can you guys rec me any fics in which Merlin:

1)-is losing his mind because of too much power?

2)-is described as gracious while doing magic (or all de time, delicate and femenine also apply)

3)-is a spirit. I do remember reading one in which his character is based on Puck from A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Thank you!

I'm looking for this fic I read a while ago about how Merlin got into a physical altercation with some pompous lord who talked about Arthur, and the lord hurt him pretty badly. When Uther came to investigate the situation, he claimed Merlin attacked him for no reason, and then demanded he fight Merlin (for whatever reason- maybe to satisfy his honor or ssomething, I don't recall). So, Arthur has to allow Merlin time to heal, and then train him to fight this lord within like 2-4 weeks or something. If I'm remembering right, they somehow get out of the fight by threatening to accuse the lord of sorcery or something? And they also hook up at the end, I think.
I also recall that, at the time of the fight, Merlin was mad about not having been allowed to attend some festival thing and so he was being obeisant and very efficient at his job to display his displeasure to Arthur.

So I'm looking for fics where Gwaine's friendship with Merlin is featured, it doesn't have to be the main focus, but I would like to read some good stories where we get a good look at the two of them interacting. Maybe a magic reveal where Gwaine takes Merlin's side. Or any scenerio where it's really shown that Gwaine is loyal to Merlin over anyone and everyone else including Arthur.

All pairings are welcome, self-recs are good, and gen is also fine. (honestly I'm good with just about anything for this one).

Please and Thank You.
