eleven thousand kings - f_vikus - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
The trade was simple. For every life made, there must be one given.
For the life of the heir that Arthur desired –
There never had been any doubt in Merlin’s mind. He had known from the beginning how this would end.

Because We (Are, Were, Will Be) Bound - orphan_account - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
And the words come out then, slowly, as if Merlin has to pick and choose between them as one would sift through fruit in a stall at market. How they are soulmates [...]. How Merlin waited, and waited, for Arthur to accept the connection – or failing that, to send him into the fevered wasteland of bond sickness with a rejection. How over the years even that limbo was enough to sustain him.

How, when Arthur was wounded, Merlin sacrificed the bond – "It wasn't real, anyway," Merlin says, so casual Arthur is horrified. "How can it be real when it is only one half?"

How Merlin's sacrifice saved Arthur's life.

You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free - vampiric_mcd - Merlin (BBC) [Archive of Our Own]
The trouble with reincarnation – and actually remembering your past lives – was that it got a bit repetitive after a while. The love triangle issue was one of those things that had also gotten old really fast.

Six of One - mollrach13 - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
History repeats itself. Arthur and his Queen cannot have children, so they seek their answers in magic.
They trade a life for a life. The Queen is ready and willing to make this sacrifice for the future of Camelot. But magic never weaves straight.

Merlin was not a sacrifice Arthur had been willing to make.

The Patter of Tiny Feet on Cold Stone Floors - TheAvalonian - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
When Guinevere finds that she is unable to bear Arthur a child, Merlin offers her the perfect solution: an ancient spell which can create new life out of love, if that love is pure and powerful enough. But after the ritual, it becomes increasingly obvious that while Gwen has indeed become pregnant, the child she carries might not have been created from the love between Arthur and his wife - but rather from the love between Arthur and his Court Sorcerer. Merlin/Arthur romance.

Continua - roamer - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]


Modern AU with magic. Sex or die curse. They've had this arrangement for years now and it works. For Arthur, it's a duty, one he used to enjoy but doesn't anymore, and for Merlin, it's just something he has to do, like eating reasonably healthy food and getting enough sleep. The sex is part of their routines, a secret neither of them admits to anyone else, especially not to their partners. But maybe there is someone out there who can help them. And maybe, when faced with losing their connection, Merlin and Arthur start to rekindle a latent flame.

More Than Just a Pair of Sinking Ships by Robespierre
Arthur is a frustrated, unhappily married teacher. He used to love teaching, and he used to love Gwen, but now it feels as though happiness is an unreachable goal. Life finally starts to make sense again when he meets Merlin, a sixteen-year-old foreign exchange student.

As their student/teacher relationship strengthens, Arthur begins to have decidedly unprofessional thoughts about Merlin, forcing him to reexamine everything he believes in: his career, his marriage, and even his own sexuality.

Gwen and Arthur have been married for several years, Merlin's magic has been revealed and Arthur has now reached a kind of cold peace with it. Then a delegation arrives from a kingdom based on magic, and suddenly Destiny is starkly and ruthlessly to the fore. The question is should - can - it be avoided?

Wintry Calm (so in love with the wrong world)
Camelot has been divided for as long as Arthur can remember; the Great Wall stretches from one end of the city to the other. On one side you have the rich, and the pure. On the other, a child is hanged for possessing magic and everyone is living on the edge.

Then, one day, Arthur Pendragon looks out of his window to see two dark haired teenagers curled on the doorstep. Slowly he and his girlfriend, Gwen, learn how they came to be there, fall in love with everyone but each other, and begin to tear down the wall.
