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.

Sorry, don't know how else to describe it in the subject. Anyone got any pretend relationships fics where Arthur (or Merlin) pretends to woo/befriend the other but only because it's a dare/to gain something but end up falling in love for real with them anyway? And then of course the reveal and then angsting and hurt! but they manage to overcome it and stay together in the end. (I've read very few, and my latest read that might fit this category was the fic where Merlin has 3 kids, based on theh film Overboard)

I'm looking for fics where Arthur is in a relationship and his girlfriend is jealous of Merlin (because Arthur and him are too close).

If the girlfriend is mean to Merlin, it's even better!

Modern!Au or Canon!

So I have looked for this everywhere and I am starting to think I imagined it. It is a fic about Merlin not calling Arthur Prince Arthur. A knight or two get mad and when them, Arthur, Merlin, and Leon are on an outing they tell Merlin he isn't allowed to eat unless he acts differently. Merlin gets hurt a bit and Leon confronts him secretly about it. There's probably more about it I'm missing but that's the gist of it. Please help. Thanks!

Hello everyone. I'm looking for two specific Merthur fics.

1. I believe this was called "Just One Thing" or "One Little Thing" and was on LJ. It was fairly short and canon-era. Arthur is engaged to Gwen but "just one thing" is bothering him: he's a virgin. Merlin is a bit surprised to hear this since, as he tells Arthur, the lower classes tend to get experience early on. This stresses Arthur out more and Merlin quickly reassures Arthur that Gwen probably isn't like that. Next thing you know, Merlin and Arthur are having sex, for the purpose of demonstration, of course. But it feels so right that afterwards Arthur reflects that perhaps that one thing that was concerning him about his upcoming marriage is not his lack of experience but his feelings for Merlin.

2. What I remember most about this story was its conclusion and the author's note. It was on AO3. It's post-finale and Merlin sends Arthur across the lake, but somehow or other, he is able to return to life immediately, only not as king. I believe he and Merlin set off on various adventures to pass the time until Arthur will be called back when Albion needs him. At the very end of the story, Arthur feels a "pull" and vanishes and he and Merlin both know this means the time has come and Arthur will re-emerge at the lake. Merlin takes on the appearance of an old man and grabs a rucksack and heads out to meet him (i.e., this is the scene we see at the end of the finale). The author's note was "Boom! Canon compliant."

Thanks for your help and for all the great stories I've found through recs here.

Hello All,

I'm new to Merlin fandom and I started to read fics after I finish watching all five seasons. However, I find myself stuck in what to read next and when I find a good fic, I find it has been abandoned. So, I come to the next best thing, and that is the Merlin fandom as they would know what must be read. So, please rec me anything that you think is a must read. I'm okay with the following things in any fic.

  • angst

  • infidelity

  • Arthur leaves Merlin for Gwen

  • Any Slash pairing

  • Au's

  • mpreg

  • Arthur banishes Merlin from Camelot

  • Arthur/Merlin (otp)

  • Love Mordred with any of the Knights.

  • Jelouse Arthur

  • slash or pre-slash

Well I think you get an idea of things I like, but if there is something you want to recomend go ahead and do so :)

04 October 2015 @ 03:45 pm
so I read a story on fanfiction where all knights, Gwen and Mordred follow Merlin to the lake and hear him talking to Freya. During his conversation with Freya he tells her about Mordreds destiny. It was also a reveal fiction.
Does anyone know similiar stories?

Thanks in advance

Well, this is my first time posting, but I've been looking for this fic for a month or so now and I need help.

Arthur finds out about Merlin's magic and they decide to try and lure Morgana out by having Merlin join her. They know she would figure it out, so Merlin casts a memory spell on himself and Arthur essentially treats him like crap and makes it look like he killed Hunith so Merlin goes to Morgana. It was beautifully angsty, and there was mentions of non con, but nothing happened. I'm pretty sure it wasn't written linear.

Haii guise!

Does anyone happen to have any of plain-jane08's fics saved? (not to be confused with planejane on lj/planejane on ao3). I just realized she recently deleted her journal =[
I had actually bookmarked her fics on delicious 4 months ago intending on saving them, only to find them gone D:
I adored her rps fics! Especially "The Unlikely Romance of Ice Block and Heater"

While I had only planned on saving her Bradley/Colin and Arthur/Merlin fics, I'd be interested in any and all of her fics that anyone may have!
My email is thebubblewrapmenace@gmail.com

Thank you~

Correct me if I'm wrong but did Plane_Jane recently take off her account (lj or ao3)? I'm not sure if I imagined reading her fics on ao3 or not, but her journal's definitely gone. Terribly sorry if this is a repeat post but my googling found no links to posts from here when I looked her up.

If she did recently take it off (or maybe I'm just late...?) does anyone have a copy of her fics & would be kind enough to send it to me at carabeazz@gmail.com? D;

Hope someone can help me out!

Some irrelevant info: I was looking at this rec list and one of them is her No Regrets, but the link sent me to a purged journal & googling got me no results for AO3 but I'm POSITIVE I've read her works and loved them (I remember all my favorite authors but the titles of their works escape me).

(To mods: I checked posting guidelines & I know I'm supposed to have at least 2 tags but I'm not sure what else to put this in--I based my tags on the post looking for frantic's fics! Sorry if I messed up?))

So I realise that on the show Merlin is protective of Arthur etc, etc - but Arthur is not aware of this at any point of time.

I love the premise of Arthur being generally capable, but the idea of Merlin being a white knight when Arthur is hopelessly outnumbered or when the person wearing him down is Uther or Morgana (with Arthur being fundamentally incapable of telling them off) is like honey on toast to me.

Does anybody have any stories to rec where Arthur is made aware of this? Like Merlin telling someone off for Arthur in Arthur's hearing?  Or generally going BAMF on Arthur's behalf in front of him - fighting off people, yelling at someone etc etc? Gen/Slash/AU is fine, I just want Arthur finally getting an idea of how much Merlin cares for him. If anybody has fics that do that in any respect, do please pass along and thanks! :)

So I read a fic some time ago, most probably on ff.net and in the story, Arthur had removed the ban on magic. Merlin told Arthur that he has magic but Arthur doesnt understand that Merlin is powerful at all, just basic starting-the-fire kind, and says something like he is glad that magic-users like him can now use magic for their daily chores and Merlin doesn't bother correcting him. And there is a purple fire too lighted by a sorceror who doesnt like the fact that the ban was lifted. There are, i think, a bunch of sorcerors who didnt want the ban to be lifted and they attack or get caught or something. Merlin stops them and then Arthur finds out that Merlin is really badass.
I think that's pretty much it. (Sorry it's so long)
26 September 2015 @ 12:41 am
So, I'm looking for a Merthur magic reveal fic situated in canon s5 where Merlin is just about to tell Arthur about his magic but Mordred tells about his own first. I think there's some action between Arthur and Mordred but mostly it's just Merlin feeling jealous about it. I thinks it ends happily, but it is filled with angst though!
I got this from the KMM actually. I had no idea this was a thing, let alone a trope.

I'm looking for fics where Merlin is the third Holmes brother. Only Gen and Slash please, NO HET.
25 September 2015 @ 08:45 am

Anyone can rec some modern AU kidnappings? Like Britian Boys, or rebellian magic is perescuted in 21st cetury AUs, or even some crack like the one where Arthurs friends tie him to a chair and gag him and lock him up for Merlin to yell at after he hurt him (broke up? Actually if anyone has link to that one Id appreciate it.)

25 September 2015 @ 01:33 am
I've been searching for this fic since yesterday:
- immortal Merlin, reincarnated Arthur
- Merlin found Arthur one rainy night but Arthur doesn't remember him
- Arthur thought Merlin is homeless so he let him stay with him
- Arthur has a girlfriend (ofc?), and when they came back from a date Merlin stayed at the neighbor's while they are asleep
- gf broke up with Arthur (or Arthur broke up with her) because he prefers hanging out with Merlin
- Merlin lives in a cabin in a small island at the middle of lake of Avalon(?)
- Arthur's memories gradually returns when they went to Merlin's house

Hi, I'm sorry to be doing this again in such short period of time but I'm looking for two Merthur fics

1) I can't remember much, at first I was thinking it was Wild Justice by silkmoth but that's not the case. All i remember is that Merlin and Arthur are now sharing chambers or Merlin's in the room attached to Arthur's that's specifically for the Prince's manservant and somehow it led to both of them masturbating and Merlin's magic seems to really love it, because it kept trying to force them to do something about it. I'm not entirely sure but I think Merlin is staying with Arthur because of some threat, i might just be mixing up two fics at present because i keep thinking Merlin is now mute or something.

2) Its a role reversal fic, Arthur and Gwen has switched places, and so has Lance and Merlin, but Merlin still has magic. All I remember is that Gwen walks in on Arthur and Merlin and banishes them. She becomes cold and shuts herself off from everyone but eventually marries Lance and ends up inviting both Arthur and Merlin back to the kingdom, this was years later. Though Arthur and Gwen switch places Arthur was more a Knight than a servant.
It's been driving me crazy and any help would be appreciated.

So, Im kinda sorta new to podfics, but my enflish tutor told me I need to listen to british, cause I start to aquire american accent (and isnt that creepy when all the shows I watch are british), but so I listened to podfics to SECRETS and ACROSS THE MEMORY AND THE WAVE and they were quite fun and a nice rest for my eyes after 10 hours of reading.

So I'm asking you for some recs. Anything, realy as long as its read in the proper british english.
But if you'd allow me to be a tad bit fussy, I absokutely adore bromantic magic reveals,(like The Big reveal, two Reveals in one fic!❤), angsty kidnappings full of non sexual restraining, tying up, gagging and throwing bags over heads (like Ransoming Emrys,bdefinitely need it to have a  happy end, no major character death or fallout), and overly sweet domestic fluff (like Pumpkin Spice And Everything Nice, cause if that wasnt the best fic ever, eep.).

Em, thanks in advance?
