Would You Be Mine, Could You Be Mine - lady_ragnell - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Merlin does not want to invite the Prime Minister's son onto his show, even if he is an environmental scientist. Arthur does not want to admit that he has a crush on the star of Merlin's Castle, the most popular children's show in the nation.

In which Merlin is Mr. Rogers, there is a bouquet of finger puppets, Freya and Gwaine hooked up years ago and neither of them wants to talk about it, and eventually everything turns out okay.

The Crown of the Summer Court by astolat
"The king sent me to get you," Merlin said, with a tone that implied strongly that he wasn't rolling his eyes where Arthur could see, but just wait until his back was turned. "He said you're to get changed into formal clothes and meet him in the Great Hall, there's a delegation coming from the Summer Court."

Coming of Age by astolat
"I have called you to give you a warning," the dragon said. "A red moon rises over Camelot this night. The Wild Hunt will ride."

Merlin is the son of the king of the Wild Hunt, and today is his naming day.

Merlin's employees bet him the recipe for the most addictive cocoa in the world that he can't find out what the hot blond who comes into his chocolate shop does for a living within the month. He ends up getting far more than he bargained for.

Fundamental Imperfection - Starlingthefool - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
In which an argument about Dickens leads to a Twitter scandal, broken bones, midnight conversations, and transatlantic longing.

(Or, an AU with Arthur and Merlin as moderately famous authors.)

The Prince's Mistress by thegirl
When Uther declared war on the Old Religion after the death of his wife in childbirth, he was warned that there would be consequences to his crusade beyond his worst nightmares. But Uther ignored these warnings, and the purge continued. If he'd known the price his people would pay for his vendetta, perhaps he would have been more wary.

Twenty years have passed since the great purge began, and Uther's subjects have grown barren. Fewer children are born with each passing year, until the very future of the Kingdom was endangered. In a final attempt to save Camelot, Uther decreed that men of the noble class were allowed to take mistresses without fear of condemnation. The social class from which the mistress originated didn't matter, as long as she was able to bear an heir - an heir that would be recognised and legitimised by the court.

Merlin, having been raised outside Camelot, knew little of these problems. If she had, she'd have thought twice before she saved the prat of a prince's life and was made his mistress as a 'reward' by Uther.

And like the cycle of the year, we begin again by 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.

Faded Epitaphs (Marching Onwards) - patria_mori - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Immortality was never something Arthur Pendragon had wanted. Merlin didn't give him that choice. As the rest of the world reincarnates, blissfully oblivious, Arthur continues, waiting for the one man who never came back.

Following the Beast - Footloose, mushroomtale - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Arthur grew up surrounded by emotionless attendants, was forced to suppress his true nature, and was regularly trotted out as a special-occasion showpiece for the entertainment of pedantic mortals. As he approaches adulthood, he decides that it's time for him to break free of the leash and to take his rightful place on the throne.

There are agents of Heaven and Hell who would stop him. His own half-sister desires the power for herself. His human father refuses to allow Arthur out of his control. The Fallen sperm donor responsible for Arthur's existence wants to take his place.

Arthur's young. His power has yet to mature. All the allies he has made and the loyal men who follow him won't be enough to protect him until he can build the Kingdom he has dreamed of since he was a child

We Are All Diamonds - Chapter 1 - Footloose - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
As the precocious heir of a diamond magnate and a famous designer, Arthur lived his entire life sheltered, protected, nurtured and spoiled. He always knew that he would have to step out from behind the scenes and into the limelight to run the family business some day, but he never expected that it would happen so soon or that he would encounter resistance from a board of directors who believe that his disability makes him unfit to lead.

Merlin has stood on every stage in every city in the world, performing to critical acclaim, but after years of globetrotting, he's well and truly burnt out. He didn't quit -- he ran away from stardom, dropping to obscurity in the blink of an eye, forgotten, just another face in the crowd. He's aimless and without purpose until a friend asks him to fill in on a job.

Shadowlord and Pirate King - Chapter 1 - Footloose, mushroomtale - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
A fast ship, a good crew, a treasure, a Clan to lead -- that's all Arthur Pendragon has ever wanted. He sits on the Council, he supports his father's kingship, and he keeps an eye on the Imperial Conglomerate when they come too close to Pirate space.

One day the Conglomerate infiltrates the Clans and poisons the King. Arthur must search for a cure to keep his father alive and the Clans from civil war.

An escape route, a sharp knife, a target, the shadows at his command -- that's all Merlin has ever needed. He fulfills his assignments, he uses the Sterling to sustain his once-royal House in their exile, and wages a private war against the Imperial Conglomerate.

When he learns of an elaborate plot to assassinate him, Merlin does the opposite of what's expected. He flees onto a Pirate ship.

We'll Be a Dream - Sarageek16 - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
“My mommy's name is Nim. I'm Arthur. Like the king of Camelot,” Arthur bragged.

Merlin gasped in excitement. “My name's Merlin!” he said, beaming. “And my mommy—she says Merlin was a wizard and King Arthur's best friend!”

Arthur frowned in thought. “D'ya think we should be best friends, then?”

“I dunno. You're kind of mean.” Merlin told Arthur matter of factly.

“Well your ears are weird.”

Merlin's hands flew to his ears. “They are not!” he squawked.

“It's okay,” Arthur assured him, “this makes us even. So are we best friends?”

Pony - Violette_Royale - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Arthur is just a boy when he realises that he gets excited from bridling his horse. When he's older, he steals a bridle and uses it to pleasure himself. One day, Merlin finds the bridle and offers to help him. As their mutual play develops, Arthur becomes Pony, Merlin's horse, and Merlin becomes his groom. Together they learn about love, responsibility and the value of service.

This fic was inspired by a kinkmeme prompt requesting canon era ponyplay with Arthur as the ponyboy.

After the disastrous end of his betrothal to Gwen and the regret of his offer to Princess Mithian, Arthur swears off finding a wife until he's ready to wed.

Everything they thought they knew can change in the span of a single year.

The Sorcerer and the King - winterhill - Merlin (BBC) [Archive of Our Own]
Arthur could barely see Merlin through the smoke, as if he were already a ghost. That was the thing with a burning; the moment of death was so often — perhaps mercifully — obscured by the gouts of smoke that poured from the fire, asphyxiating the victim long before the flames licked at their lungs.
