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.

Any fics where Arthur is crying, hurt, self-harming, small, scared, insecure, has nightmares, tortured, kidnapped, raped, abused, sad, etc. Thanks in advance!! :)

This is an older fic, and a modern AU.  Arthur & Merlin are together in this already.  Uther is a main character, and not entirely a bad guy (if he is at all  - can't remember).  The story ends with Arthur getting kidnapped, and Uther and Merlin getting in a car together, using Merlin's magic (while Uther drives) to track Arthur down and rescue him.  I know this is sitting on my computer somewhere, but I don't have a clue as to what the title might be.

Any help is greatly appreciated.  :)

I'm looking for 2 fics I read quite a while ago and can't find in the disaster zone that is my bookmarks.

The first is a shapeshifter AU, wherein shapeshifters make up such a significant portion of the population (like 25% or 50% of citizens are shapeshifters I think? Idek) that Uther can't just slaughter them all without being usurped, so he just barely tolerates them. If I recall, only magic users have magical shifts (like dragons and shiz). I remember that Gwen and Merlin are shapeshifters for sure; Merlin being a dragon and Gwen a horse (I think). There's a magic reveal at some point. If I recall it's pretty long. I can't remember the rest, sorry.

The second fic is much shorter, and is a Canon divergence about Merlin noping TF right outta Camelot after meeting with the dragon that first time. After he leaves, Arthur keeps meeting him by chance; and I know the first time they meet again, it's because stumbles into the woods near Ealdor chasing a beastie of some kind, and I don't remember the rest beyond that.

I can't seem to find any fics where Uther comforts Arthur. It bothers me a bit that there isn't really a lot of father/son moments in Merlin, and I just really want to read a fic where that happens. I'm looking for any fics where Uther hugs Arthur, or does anything comforting to Arthur. Thank you!! :)
16 August 2017 @ 01:13 pm
Can anyone rec fics where Merlin uses magic or in some other BAMF way escapes being burned at the stake?

Thank you!
15 August 2017 @ 12:13 pm
Any and all fics where Arthur is Merlin's student, it doesn't matter the AU. Thank you :-)
14 August 2017 @ 12:26 pm
For some reason, I am craving some hurt!Arthur. I've spent the last 3 hours in search of fics, and I haven't found any. I'm looking for any and all fics where Arthur is hurt, abused, sad, tortured, anything like that. Thank you :)

Hi! I read this fic a while ago and I cant remember what it was called to read it again so I was hoping someone here would recognize it.

Basically Merlin gets thrown forward in time and wakes up about 9 or 10 years old in an orphanage (Wools Orphanage? The one Tom Riddle grew up in). Calls himself Merlin Evans when asked his name. Its a Harry Potter crossover in which Harry Potter did not ever exist- the potters were simply the last to be killed by Voldey. Theres a boy whos a year or two younger than him that becomes his best friend/brother and Snape kinda looks after him? I remember Merlin panicking on the Knight Bus and Snape losing him in Diagon Ally when taking him to get his school supplies. I think the guy who owns the ice cream shop ends up adopting Merlin and the other boy as well.

Honestly, with so much information youd think Id easily be able to find this fic. xP please help? Thanks!

Hi! I was just hoping someone could reccomend some good magic reveal fics. To Arthur preferably, but the knights work too. Thanks!

Hello, me again :)
I need your help finding a fic: all I remember is that Merlin is presumed dead (he collapses in Arthur's chambers, he has no pulse, but arthur carries him to Gaius' chambers anyway), but then Gaius and Arthur realize he's too warm to be dead and he's getting warmer instead of colder. So Arthur thinks he has a chance of saving him and carries him to this place (I think it was a cave? And maybe there was someone else with them, maybe Gwen?) where he meets a spirit (deity?): she tells him to give merlin a reason to come back, arthur tells him he loves him or something like that, Merlin wakes, everyone is happy ever after. Ring a bell?
Also, another fic I'm looking for: sadly, all I remember about this one is that Merlin drowned. Help?

Hi! I'm looking for a fic where it is modern day and Merlin goes to fix up the old Pendragon manor which has fallen into disrepair. He meets Arthur (and Lance?) and they become friends. He also meets Arthur's ghost from the 1800s who is still searching for his Merlin. 1800s Uther had them arrested for sodomy and while Arthur was in jail, he killed Merlin, entombing him inside the house. Arthur never knew what happened to him.

Does anyone remember this one?
05 August 2017 @ 01:33 pm
Hello people of LiveJournal! Today, I am looking for any fics where Arthur hurts Merlin, but then feels bad. It doesn't matter if Arthur says something that hurts Merlins feelings, or if Arthur hits him, just that Arthur hurts him somehow. Thank you!
05 August 2017 @ 10:11 am
Hello friends! I'm hoping one of you lovely people can help me find some good fics. I'm looking for any fics where the knights hurt Merlin (physically, emotionally, mentally, I don't have a preference) without Arthur knowing, then Arthur finds out.

Thank you!!

Hello! Just wondering if anyone could recomend any fics :)

1) I know there are two stories like this but have both been deleted so unless anyone somehow has a copy I'll ask to see if there's any others; Merlin essentially takes on Morgana's role and is somehow related to Arthur/Uther/Morgana and joins Morgause and turns on Camelot.

2) Any fanfic's where Merlin turns against Camelot and joins Morgana or Morgause.

3) Merlin is forced/blackmailed to betray Camelot or spy on Camelot. (Thinking along the lines of fics that are similar to 'The Dark Temptations' if anyone's read that.)

4) Any fanfiction's where Mordred is revealed to the Knights as a druid/sorcerer whilst he was still good.

Sorry I know it's a long list and I don't really think that there'll be much if anything for them.

I'm trying to find a specific fic where Merlin dies. I read this fic pretty soon after I had just finished watching the entire Merlin series. It was a long while ago, so I don't remember all of it but I remember it pretty well and it's been bugging me so I've been trying to find it, but I've had some trouble finding it again. Here's all I remember about it:

Merlin was hit by a curse from a sorcerer/sorceress and at first, it seems like it did nothing, and Gaius and Merlin assume that Merlins magic undid it automatically or something. It's not long before they realize they were wrong and that Merlin is dying. There's nothing they can do, but Gaius pinpoints almost exactly when Merlin is going to die. I think he has like a week left to live or something. Anyway, Merlin doesn't tell anyone and tries to just go on with life as always, and I think he has a picnic with everyone like a day or two before he dies. He's out on a hunting or scouting trip with Arthur and the knights when he dies. I remember that he didn't want to sleep, and stayed up all night watching the stars or something before he finally dies. I'm not sure, but I think that afterward when they come back with Merlins body Gaius tells Arthur about Merlins magic. I also think it mentioned something about Gwen being pregnant and Merlin not being there to see Arthurs children, but that might have been from something different.

So yeah, I'm looking for this. I'm almost one hundred percent certain that it was on FFN or AO3.

If you know it, please let me know, or if you have any other fanfictions where Merlin dies to recommend to me, that would be awesome. (gen, no slash only please.)

I can't remember much about this one, other than that whatever illness Merlin had was terminal, and the author of the story had it too. I think the fic was multi-chapter and on ffn but other than that details are pretty vague.

I think it involved a large body of water at some point? like the lake of avalon or maybe it was just the ocean, I don't really remember. At any rate at least part of the story involved the knights and Merlin travelling to this lake/sea/whatever either because it possibly held a cure or just because they were honoring Merlin's wish or something

at somepoint Arthur catches merlin trying to wash his clothes because he's thrown up on them or otherwise soiled them I think? and when Arthur tries to stop him he goes on a rant about his body betraying him? that might be from a different fic, but if anyone knows what it's from please rec it to me, because I'm really empathizing with that right now.

I'm pretty sure it ends with Merlin walking into this lake thing and the waves engulfing him and somehow curing him. there was a little authors note at the end saying just because author's illness was terminal didn't mean Merlin couldn't have a happy ending i think.
I don't think it was a magic reveal, but I could be wrong.
If anyone knows of it I would be really greatful! Also this is my first time making a post of my own, so please let me know if I'm doing anything wrong. Thank you

At the end of Master of Two Servants, Arthur sends Merlin off to be trained by George. Last week's Camelot Drabble topic of Schedule and this week's Wake Up had me thinking that I could see a short series of stories of Merlin being trained by George (hopefully by someone with a good sense of humor). If such stories exist, please let me know.

Thank you

Hi! I would really love to read some Dom/Sub (even lightly implied) Merthur stories. Preferably canon era and Arthur being the one in control. I just love stories where Merlin is gentle and innocent and Arthur is all in charge and aggressive. Any stories like that would be appreciated too. I'm just having a hard time finding them for some reason. Thank you so much in advance!

Hi, so this might be a bit of a long shot because I don't remember a lot about either of these fics, but I'll ask anyway:

1) Basically Arthur & the knights went somewhere (?) without Merlin for whatever reason and are attacked or something. I think the knights find Arthur's bloodied cloak and believe him to be dead. They ride back to Camelot with the news, but Merlin doesn't believe it (can feel that Arthur isn't dead?) I remember Merlin and Gwaine going out to look for Arthur and Merlin is like led to some castle (or something) and probably used magic to take out whoever took Arthur. They find Arthur in a cell I think, and he's badly wounded. Not sure of much after that other than they probably take him back to Camelot...

2) All I remember of this one is that they're both in Arthur's chambers and Merlin is opening the window or whatever when I think a strong gust of wind hits and Merlin is knocked out the window. Arthur jumps up frantically but thinks he's too late, but Merlin apparently got hold of the edge using magic and is barely holding on. So I think Merlin is afraid Arthur won't help him up because of the magic and starts begging for help (maybe?). Of course Arthur helps him, maybe they hug, Merlin is shaking and crying and generally terrified. I think it's a pretty short fic, but I could be wrong.

Both are set in Canon Era. I would very much appreciate anyone who can help me find them. Thanks in advance!
