The Dragon Rises
If Into the Badlands met The Once and Future King, this is the story that would be told:

Merlin has three strikes against him: he's one of the last surviving members of the grove of Ironwood, he's renowned as the dread sorcerer Emrys, and there's a large reward hanging over his head like Damocles' sword. After decades of running, there's nowhere left to go. His dream of peace -- Ironwood's dream -- seems impossible to achieve until he meets the young son of a thane whose greatest secret is a traitorous desire for more than the tyranny that runs rampant throughout the Kingdoms of Albion.

It was disaster that brought the world to this. It's war that will cleanse it of its sins. But it is prophecy that heralds the day when the guardian of the realm can wear his mantle once again, and when the King of Kings will rise to take the throne that is rightly his.

Hurts - phandomoftheowl - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
“He seems delicate sometimes. Like he needs protecting. He's an idiot, yeah, but he's also... he has his own darkness, Gwaine. He doesn't like to let people close, and he guards his secrets better than a dragon guarding a vast treasure. ”
Gwaine wanted to ask how a PrinceKing who pretended much indifference to his manservant could know so much about him, but he didn't want to interrupt whatever insights Arthur was willing to dole out today.
“And it hurts. Knowing that he doesn't trust you hurts. And it tears you apart until all you can do is sit and wait and accept his utterly ridiculous smiles, and hope that he'll tell you today. Just, maybe today would be the day.” Arthur glanced sideways for a brief moment, eyes full of meaning.

this is tagged as regency but it honestly doesn't seem _that_ post-medieval, but I guess it's hard for arthurian stuff to seem at all recent

also I've never seen Merlin, just read a lot of books

You Swiped Right - Chapter 1 - momotastic - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Pendragon Books is to London's bookselling industry what Sauron is to Middle-Earth: Bad fucking news.

Merlin could also compare them to Voldemort and the magical world in Britain, or maybe the White Witch and Narnia, but no matter what analogy he picks, the point remains the same: Wherever Pendragon Books pops up with a new shop, existing businesses die a painful death, robbing their city of more and more personality and character. Therefore it comes as a bit of a shock when they're settling in right across the street from Merlin's bookshop, and Merlin finds out that Arthur Pendragon himself is gorgeous and unreasonably easy to talk to, and - worst of all - a bit of a nerd.

However, not only is Merlin most definitely not fraternising with the enemy, he's also already sort of dating someone. So what if it started on Grindr, and is only through text messages?

Charmed, I'm Sure - arthur_pendragon - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
“I need your guidance,” Arthur said in an undertone the next time Gaius saw him—which was immediately after Merlin hopped off to the forest to ‘fetch herbs’ for Gaius, in a transparent excuse to concoct his elixir in peace. “Merlin told the entire castle he’s head over heels in love with me.”
“And your magnificent cock,” Gaius said, for surely he could not be expected to suffer the trauma of being the only one to have to hear that.
Arthur paled. “He informed everyone thusly, yes. It is a spell, right?”
“Most certainly.”

Memory is a fickle friend.

Sometimes, it keeps from us our most prized moments in life, and sometimes it gives them back when we least expect it to.

Each Thing That in Its Season Grows
In which an ill-timed kiss sets off a chain reaction in Camelot, leading to a number of unexpected (but ultimately fortunate) revelations.

Alternatively: Merlin is right, the love lives of the people of Camelot really are way too complicated.

Pink and Black and Blue (For You) - Chapter 1 - Polomonkey - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
When he met his soulmate – if he met his soulmate – they were going to have some serious apologising to do.

Arthur's one of the unlucky few with a rather unfortunate soulmate connection - they share bruises. And his soulmate just happens to be the clumsiest person in the world. Between that and Morgana's attempt to set him up with every bruised man she comes across, it's lucky he has friendly IT tech Wizard to keep him sane...

A Firm Hand - Salted_Caramel - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
He’s still young, Arthur tells himself. He’s still very unaware of how the world works, too busy in his own little bubble of youth. “Right,” he says, clipped. “One more word out of you and I’m going to put you over my knee.”
He sees the way Merlin looks back at him. How his gaze darts back and and forth as he weighs Arthur’s words. It must be the tiny amount of alcohol within his veins that makes him so cocky, so careless, because he of all people should know that Arthur is a man of his word.
“Prat,” Merlin says, challenging, goading.
It makes Arthur’s blood run hot. Foot slamming down on the accelerator, he makes a sharp turn, parking into the first suitable alleyway he finds. “Out.”

Fractured Magic
“Oi!” Merlin shouts. “People are trying to study in here. Piss off somewhere else!”

“What did you say, spellbegger?” he calls back, tone arrogant and haughty like just about every other Knight on Campus. “Come down here and say that to my face.”


Or the Sky High AU where Knights and Magic Users attend University to learn how to fight evil magic and Merlin and Arthur do not get along. Until they do.

Lucky Disasters by Mischel
Merlin's really late for work and he accidentally bumps a parked car in his hurry. He doesn't have time to do anything about it, so he just leaves a short message with his phone number behind the windscreen wiper and runs away. A few hours later, a very lonely and now also angry Arthur Pendragon finds the message, and he believes that Merlin and he have a lot to talk about. (Over dinner.)

“You’re gay!” Uther exclaimed, as if Arthur had handed him some delightful gift. “That’s wonderful! I’m so proud!”

And that, really, should have been a warning. But nothing could have been a warning for what happened next.

In which Uther is the king... of rock and roll, Merlin is a magical singer, Morgana casts a spell over everyone, and Arthur... Well, Arthur really wishes he was anywhere but here.
