✢ The Sorcerer and the King
"Canon AU -- Merlin's death is only the beginning; with no-one to protect the kingdom, Camelot falls to an enemy sorcerer and Arthur is forced to serve in the court that he once ruled. When an escape attempt goes horribly wrong, Arthur is rescued by someone he never expected to see again -- and it's their destiny to put things right." (85,529 words)

"When Arthur is captured by an enemy king intent on conquering Camelot, his future looks bleak. For Cenred commands not only a clutch of sorcerers but a fearsome dragon trained to do battle and wreak destruction. Then Arthur meets Merlin, a fellow captive whose magic has been bound to Cenred's will. But can Merlin resist Cenred's control long enough to help Arthur save Camelot?" (71,842 words)

Deep as the Wine Dark Sea - RurouniHime - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
"Arthur," Uther hisses, a wretched anxiety lilting the name. "Get out of the way!"

Arthur's jaw clenches. Merlin can see the stain on his tunic widening, feel it soaking through to his palms where he holds Arthur around the chest. He remembers that he's the one keeping Arthur in place and shifts his grip to let him slide down, when—

"Any…" Arthur's voice fails; he swallows, and the sound holds an ugly rasp. "Any blade that reaches Merlin…" —he sags further, fingers clamping tighter to Merlin's hips— "goes through m… me first."

Your Absence Ringing In My Ears - madasthesea - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
“He’s not dead!” Merlin roared, ignoring the many people that stopped to stare, that began looking around the courtyard and realizing who they hadn’t seen come home. “I would feel it!”

The Knights of the Round Table looked at each other, grief and desperation heavy in each of their expressions, but Merlin didn’t wait for them to say anything, just continued to move forward as quickly as he could. Gwaine ran forward and caught his arm, the other knights following behind.

“Merlin, mate, I understand-“

“No, you don’t understand,” Merlin hissed yanking his arm away and meeting all their sympathetic eyes with undisguised vehemence. “Half of my soul resides in him. I would feel his loss as keenly as a wound. He is not dead.”

this is the knife - helloearthlings - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
“Sorcerers,” Uther muttered derisively from next to him. He hadn’t batted an eye at the man’s death – but then again, why would he? Magic was evil. Arthur knew that.

The pain in his mind screamed differently.

A Disarming Act of Loyalty - barbitone - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]

Lions and Pebbles and Penguins, Oh my! - fuzzytomato - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
“So…” he draws out the word, “gay penguins.”

Merlin laughs and it is carefree and loud and draws attention, but Arthur is just glad to hear it.

“Yeah,” he confirms, “gay penguins.”

“You’re the Prince?” Merlin says, eyeing him. He hesitates, then adds, defiant, “The Mad Prince of Camelot.” Arthur doesn’t move. There’s quiet for a long time, then he says it. “I am.” “You don’t seem mad,” he says. The smile wells up from somewhere deep, and very sad. “Well, Merlin,” he says, “give me time.”

Our Man in Africa
Excellent fic where Eames has feelings and Arthur has a terrible job and trust issues, and they both nearly die and it's awful until it isn't, and Arthur is an overpriced bottle of Fiji and Eames can't help but buy him every single time.

Ashes to Ashes - Schizzar - Dark Knight Rises (2012), Inception (2010) [Archive of Our Own]
Arthur is sick of the dream-sharing. He's seen the results, and it's nothing like the justice he imagined when Dom first brought him on. He's going to get a new beginning.
Wow! Legit cannon match-up! Arthur tries to rediscover himself in Gotham (where he was born) by becoming John Blake. Meanwhile, Eames has always been Bane. Really awesome story that merges the Bane-cannon back story of DKR with the cannon of Inception and rewrites the DKR in new and interesting ways.
