The Heart's Search
Prompt: For thirty-five girls/boys, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Arthur.

But for Merlin Emrys, being Selected is a nightmare. Leaving his home to enter a fierce competition for a crown he doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

I'd just love to see Merlin being from a lower caste than most of the others and not liking Arthur at first and just being his usual self, before he starts to actually like the prince. I'm looking for a lot of snark and Arthur secretly liking Merlin's difficult personality.

There's a love triangle in the books, but I'm not really a fan of that, so I'd be very happy if it's left out of the story. Choose whatever reason you like to make Merlin actually enter the competition.

Ludus - rotrude - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Rome, 41 AD. Merlin, physician to Emperor Claudius, is assigned two new patients, gladiators from one of the local ludii. While one of them is open, flirty and talkative, the other isn't. He bears no name, doesn't discuss his past, and isn't quite so accepting of Merlin's bedside manner. He clothes himself in the stoic courage of those who know they're about to die. Until Merlin works a chink in his armour.

Take to the Sky
After a sexual scandal of significant proportions, Prince Arthur is compelled to go on best behaviour mode to appease both his father and the press. A visit to a humanitarian-aid organisation camp seems like the perfect measure to divert attention from Arthur's recent past and a good way to effectively show off his caring side. At the camp, Prince Arthur meets Merlin Emrys, a committed doctor who doesn't much care about Arthur's royal aura of fame.

The Bodyguard
The magical party spearheaded by Balinor Emrys wins the general elections, if by a thread. While some see this as a chance to reform current discriminatory laws against magic, others loathe the idea. The day Mr Emrys accepts the Queen's request to form the next government is also the day his enemies choose to act, orchestrating an assassination attempt. The attack also seems geared towards taking out the PM's conspicuously magical son, eighteen-year old, Merlin.

The aftermath is pure confusion. With Merlin's bodyguard down, Mr Emrys is forced to seek another one despite his son's firm refusal to lose somebody else.

Enter ex-serviceman and ex close protection expert Arthur Pendragon. In a climate of general suspicion Arthur becomes Merlin's new bodyguard and finds out just how difficult sticking to duty may be when he's growing closer and closer to the man he's due to protect.

Pad Crashers
Doing a spot of DIY, Gwaine manages to half destroy his and Merlin's flat. As a result they've got a hole in the floor, an angry landlord to face and a case to take to court. And no roof over their heads. While they wait for Merlin and Gwaine's flat to be fixed, Merlin crashes at Arthur's, his long standing best mate. And, you know, proximity works its charm. Except it's not just that.

Icebreaker
Life on an offshore petroleum rig is hard, all long shifts and little relaxation. It's solitary too, especially for Merlin Emrys, the new chief engineer. He's young, naive, eager to challenge the restrictions imposed by corporate cynicism, and has yet to gain the respect of his crew. Everything changes after a controls room tryst with a man whose name he doesn't know. It ought to be a cliché, but it changes everything.
