Evil Overlord, Inc. - Footloose, mushroomtale
Merlin is a recent graduate with a double doctorate in metaphysics and physics. Arthur is a low-level paper pusher with a desk in the sub-basement of MI5. They live in a world with ridiculous laws and restrictions against anyone who might be supernatural in any way, shape, or design.

Merlin has huge debts looming over this head, a few quid left in his bank account, and no job prospects. Arthur is pushing thirty, in a dead-end job with no chances of promotion to fieldwork agent, and is thoroughly bored with his life.

One ill-advised Craigslist advert, five pushy mates, one nosy all-knowing sister, and a hacked email account later, Merlin and Arthur take the world by storm.

(Or, more precisely, they take over the world.)

Something Somewhere (the I'll smother you with my love remix)
Arthur is affected by his office romance more deeply than perhaps he should be, but he can't help himself; everything with Merlin is perfect...

Until he witnesses the unthinkable.

And like the cycle of the year, we begin again - katherynefromphilly
For many long years Merlin waited.

For the other part of his soul, for the other half of his life. He was born to serve Arthur. So that meant he was also born to wait. Even if it took a thousand years. Even if the wait seemed never to end.

Until one day, suddenly, it did.

dreams for wings and wanderers - Etharei
Dragons are feared and mistrusted throughout Albion, and there are very few of them left in Camelot, for Uther’s long campaign against magic also included hunting down all the dragons in the wild. Now, Camelot is recovering from the invasion of Cenred and Morgause's army. Prince Arthur is the one in charge, and Merlin finds out that his secret regular visits to the covert haven't been very secret at all. There's a great deal of manly bonding with the Knights, inquisitive dragons being inquisitive, and a record-breaking number of near-death experiences for Merlin. And this is before he gets his very own dragon. (A Merlin/Temeraire fusion.)

Something Unpredictable
Arthur’s treehouse was the same as Merlin remembered it, all of it was. Maybe a little smaller, but then everything was, now.

And then there was Arthur himself; and it wasn't so much that a lot had changed about him, not really, it was only that everything had lengthened and broadened and become more.

Five Times Merlin Wasn't Warm Enough (and one he was)
Arthur/Merlin. Merlin prone to chills and/or illness, aka why so many clothes, Merlin?

I always thought Merlin's neckerchief was a fabulous fashion statement and possibly a functional item in his wardrobe (to hide hickeys, of course). But then I thought, okay, why practically would he be wearing one when we hardly see anyone else do so? To keep him warm?

Then I realized that more often than not, Merlin has a jacket on even when others don't. He must be cold all of the time! And maybe more suspectible to illness.

I'd love to see this explored in some way. Maybe Arthur and other people in the castle looking after Merlin because he's a delicate little flower. Could be all of the little ways people try to keep Merlin warm and safe - potential for sweetness and lulz.

And if you can include sexin' times with Arthur, when those clothes have to come off!, extra cookies if he's concerned about Merlin getting cold - stokes the fire, wraps them in blankets/furs, cuddles (in spite of himself - Arthur can still be a prat about it all - a sweet, loving prat!) and rubs Merlin's arms and legs to keep them warm.

But basically, anything to do with Merlin needing all of those clothes to keep him from getting cold and sick + what Arthur and others do to help.

Four Hundred and One Days
Merlin admits he made a mistake and he's miserable. But he can't confide in anyone because it was all a secret anyway. And the one person he wants to talk to is not talking to him. Merry Christmas.

((Really nice fic for the holidays))

Hearts Shaped on a Whirling Wheel
When King Uther dies, his foster-daughter, the shield-maiden and sorceress Morgana, returns to Camelot. Nothing seems to stand in the way of her marriage to King Arthur and a happy, fulfilling life for the both of them. But the arrival of the mysterious Merlin changes the course of fate, which takes unexpected turns involving a dragon, a falcon, and the goddess Freyja herself. Passion, magic, and revenge become the driving forces when love and the rule of the kingdom are at stake.

((Wonderful Morgana-centric story))

5 Times Arthur Helped Merlin With a Case + 1 Time He Really Fucking Didn’t - ingberry
Camelot – the town where mansions are ten a penny, the town that welcomes film stars, famous authors, an ex-Spice Girl and the IT-investors of the 90s.

The home to sixth form parties that cost enough to feed a whole family for months.

Also home to Hunith Emrys Investigations, Camelot's only private detective agency.

Set the needle on its path...
It's terrible beer. They've got no idea, not any more. Brewing is an art. Merlin scowls into his glass. The King's Arms used to serve... actually, the King's Arms, in all its incarnations, has always had piss poor beer, even when it was a hedge tavern by a lake, when Arthur's name still lived on people's tongues. Regardless. Merlin always comes back to the King's Arms when times are bad, when Albion is in need, even though, so far, bloody Albion has apparently not been in enough bloody need.
