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'm looking for any recommended fan-fictions where Merlin gets injured, physically or mentally, and has lasting effects as a result. (For example his leg gets injured and he has a limp for the rest of his life, or he goes through emotional trauma or gets a head injury and has lingering difficulty with speech or spacial recognition.) The effects can be as minimum or as drastic as you please. Thank you!

(Just an added note that gen is preferred, but slash is alright too. Thanks!)

I randomly got the craving for a very specific fic and I've searched and searched.

A knight of Uther's sees Merlin using magic and tells Merlin to meet him in the stables that night. Merlin knew what was going to happen and acted sketchy. When it starts to get non-con Merlin freaks out and kills the knight with magic. Arthur bursts in, stabs the guy to make it look legit, and then Morgana rips her dress so Uther doesn't freak.

I'm looking for fics centered on sexual experimentation... First time having gay sex, first time trying something new, first time exploring some kinks...

Just no scat and watersports! Everything else is okay!

I'm looking for Merthur fics but other slash pairings are also welcome.

All I remember is that

it's a Merthur fic
it's set in canon
it's probably Merlin POV
Arthur is worried about Morgana's reputation (and probably also jealous) because Merlin spends many a night in Morgana's room - what he doesn't know is that Merlin and Morgana have been secretly practicing how to scry.

That's all I remember. Does it ring any bells?

FOUND: Despoiled by astolat, podfic by EosRose.

Thanks, pelydryn77

Merlin was banished during Uther’s reign and after his death Arthur goes in disguise through different inns ti search him. He finds him as a scullion (or something on that line) and practically buys him from the owner.
If you could find that would be beautiful.
Please! Help

I am trying to find a story that I read a long time ago. It was about Merlin and Morgana being evil and them taking over Camelot. I believe that Morgause was also involve. It was about 20-30 chapters. Sorry about the vague description it been a really long time since I read it. If you cant find this story, then feel free to recommend me any stories that involve dark merlin and mergana.

I'm looking for two fics I read that I can't seem to find again.

1. There's a bunch of visiting royalty, and one of them is rude to Merlin who refuses to help him because he's off duty for the night. So the next day Arthur is forced to fire him to save face. This sets off a spiral for Merlin who gets sick and is horribly mistreated and no one notices.

2. After his magic was revealed, Merlin had to run away/was banished. Years later after Uther dies Arthur is looking for him and goes into an inn/tavern where he meets an man that is Merlin in disguise. Once he figures it out Arthur begs him to come back.
I have a bad feeling this may have been deleted by author cause I cannot find it anywhere. Merlin is bound to a rival King (has a collar around his neck) and the King kind of forces him onto Arthur as a gift, and Arthur is really upset about it cause he's anti-slave and sort of anti-men (some inner homophobia going on). Arthur does all this stuff to hide the fact Merlin is slave, and I think there is a spell on Merlin where the have to have sex once a day or something or else Merlin is in incredible pain.

Read more...Collapse )

All I can remember is Arthur had to marry Gwen because Kingly Duties, but they presented Merlin with a "torque" (?) or something so that he knows he's part of the relationship (in and out of the bedroom). Honestly, all I can remember is the torque... thing. Help, please!
03 March 2018 @ 07:45 pm

Anyone have any fics where Gwen cheats on Arthur with Lance/Lancelot and it's not shown to be Arthur's fault and/or Gwen/Lance get ostracized for it with their friends. Culminating in Arthur/Merlin please

as the title says, i'm looking for fics where Mordred is related to Gwaine.

while i am in general looking, i'm also looking for a specific Gwaine/Merlin fic that mentions it? i can't really remember much of the fic, since it was a while ago, but i think it also included some of the Green Knight myth?

sorry this isn't very helpful! ^^'

looking for recs of the focal concepts and a specific fic(don't mind self recs as long as self rec is either complete or actively worked on)

1. someone captures Arthur and Merlin and seeing the fondness Arthur has for Merlin hurts/tortures Merlin in front of him either as some sort of revenge on Arthur or to get Arthur to share important information or both

2. Arthur learns of Merlin's magic and has his magic bound, extra points if it hurts/endangers Merlin to have his magic bound. Or any fics where Merlin's magic is bound would be great too

3. not sure where I read this fic but it was some years back and I only remember vague details I'll give what details I have in the hopes someone can help me

Arthur, Uther, Merlin and the knights head out of the castle(don't remember why). A magical fire circles Uther and Arthur cutting the off from Merlin and the knight. Merlin and the knights search for a way through. Merlin worrying about Arthur uses his magic to get through the ring of fire to find Arthur and Uther enchanted to fight each other. Merlin breaks the enchantment revealing himself. the fire sorcerer tells Merlin off then disappears. one of the pendragons binds Merlin's magic(can't remember which) they take Merlin back to camelot for execution placing him in the dungeons as they prepare. Before Merlin can be executed the fire sorcerer kidnaps Merlin from the dungeon and tries to force him to join him. Gaius or kilgarah opens Arthur's eyes to the truth about Merlin and with the help of the great dragon Arthur rescues Merlin bringing him home.

Hi I'm a new LJ user and I've been looking for a specific fanfic for ages. Not sure of the title or the author but it was several chapters long and I'm sure I read it on fanfiction.net. Either that or it was Archive of our Own.
If I remember correctly, Arthur and Merlin were out hunting or something and the weather turned bad. It was either snow or rain. They find that old shack where Arthur talked with Dragoon but as they walk in the rotted floor gives way and they both fall in a deep hole. Arthur lands on top of Merlin so he's relatively ok but Merlin hits his head I think and his leg gets impaled by a chunk of wood. He can't climb out with his injury so Arthur builds a fire to keep the cold at bay and tends to Merlin while they wait together for help. It's not a merthur slash or a magic reveal just a good old hurt and comfort bromance with a bit of angst. Canon era.
It's driving me nuts that I can't find it. Please can someone help me?

I just finished re-reading The Perfect Scry by DisaLanglois and was wondering if there were anymore fics out there where Arthur basically reads books about magic/ asks questions of side characters and forms his own opinion about it all without the bias imput of Uther, Merlin, or Gaius. He can discuss it with them as he goes along, but I want the change of view to be all on him. I don't mind pairings (any of them), or self recs (all recs welcome). Thanks

Merlin does something stupidly powerful with his magic saving all of Camelot but looses himself in his mind. He can't eat on his own, dress himself, clean himself or care for himself and is completely helpless. Arthur acts as his full time care taker and brings about the golden age in respect/honor of Merlin and his sacrifice.
One of the end scenes is Arthur (or possibly Gwen) coming in to take care of Merlin and finding him changing out of the nappy he was in and into clean trousers. They start gently berating him (because over the past few months Merlin had been taking off all his clothes and running around naked) until Merlin asks what's going on and they realize they have the real Merlin back. There's a tearful reunion and they live happily ever after.
I beleive the fic was a massive single chapter story, but I could be wrong. I think it was around 20k. I think there was a reveal in there and I think Arthur was upset at Merlin in the begining until he starts taking care of Merlin.
The fic had some cringe-worthily good awkward scenes in it that were to die for. Please help me find this fic!!

Edit: FOUND Thank you guys!

Feeling a bit Inception-ist, but can anyone rec some good current Merlin rec blogs? All the ones I find stopped updating years ago and so have no recent fics. Not that I don't love reading those fics 500 times, but I'm hoping to find something new.
25 February 2018 @ 08:43 pm
im looking for a fic set in canon era where Arthur is cursed to have sex with Merlin (or something along those lines.) Arthur is thoroughly against the idea thinking it would be obscene to have sex with another man, i think, so resists. i think something to do with the curse was that Arthur had to come in Merlin three times? Merlin can’t let Arthur die and so he acts against arthur’s will. once was above the castle, one of the knights might have been there to help Merlin or tie Arthur up or something. then again in Arthur’s bed. i can’t remeber the other time... i believe it ends shortly after the curse is broken and arthur remains furious. I’d absolutely love to read it again if anyone can help me find it!

I was wondering if anyone knows of any fics where Merlin didn’t grow up as a prince, but is still in an arranged marriage for some reason? It can be arranged after a reveal, from birth, something he didn’t even know about, anything as long as he didn’t grow up as a prince-like figure. Could be to anyone. I know it’s probably difficult to find such a story, so I’ll take anything I can get.
