"The world is falling into winter. Camelot is falling into war. Arthur will do anything he can to keep his kingdom safe, and he will use whatever weapons are at hand - but, to his horror, his decisions turn out to have severe consequences for Merlin. Naturally, Arthur decides that it is his duty to protect his loyal servant from the shocking truth...." (50,728 words)

"When Merlin falls into bed with Arthur, he doesn't expect for to wake up alone. He doesn't expect Arthur to give him the cold shoulder either, but there is something else he expects even less which forces him out of the kingdom for over a year. He returns to find a traitor in the court, an army on the way, and a love he'd thought all but lost waiting for him with open arms." (33,753 words)

Fathom Me
"After ten years, Arthur thinks he has Merlin all figured out. But as he watches Merlin, he finds out that he has more questions than answers. The longer he thinks about it, the more uneasy he feels. So he pushes it aside. Except, he can no longer ignore the questions he has about Merlin." (21,680 words) Sequel to: Laundry's Hard Work

Laundry's Hard Work
"Wasn't Merlin supposed to be...tiny? When the hell had he learned to use a sword and not fall on his backside? Where the hell did those scars from? What the hell? - or - Arthur still thinks Merlin is the young boy he met ten years ago and he starts to notice things in his manservant that he wasn't aware had changed at all."

✢Stars Above, Stones Below
"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. When Merlin offers himself to Arthur as bedmate, Arthur suggests they hand-fast in secret for a single year of mutual pleasure without obligation. As their year together unfolds, and secrets and betrayals unravel around them, Arthur and Merlin learn there is no such thing as uncomplicated pleasure. Everything they thought they knew can change in the span of a single year." (46,843 words) Sequel: Para Bellum

never so safe as i am with you
Arthur has better subconscious security than anyone in the world. It’s notoriously impossible to steal a secret from him. Unless, of course, you’re Eames.

A Happy Accident
Summary: Written for this inception_kink prompt, Successful actor (name here) Eames (or name here, I'm not picky) is in the city when he runs into flustered businessman Arthur (name here), who doesn't recognize him. Eames is both thrilled and hurt by the lack of attention and begins to follow Arthur, who is confused at the people gaping or pointing. Nobody points out that Eames is a celebrity to Arthur until he watches a movie his roommate Ariadne rents.

You're A Mean One, Mr. Eames
Arthur knows something is wrong when none of his Forger friends are willing to work with him. Eames, as always, is the cause of all his headache.

Perfect Symmetry
It wasn’t art, only a coping mechanism, something that steadied his mind with its simplicity.

or, Arthur draws Eames a lot.

cherryvanilla - The Policy of Truth
Acquaintances, half-hearted rivals: these words defined Arthur's relationship with Eames for years, until the Fischer job brings in another part to the equation--friendship. But the rules of engagement change completely during a night of drinks and suggestive conversation. What begins as a one night stand slowly turns into something much more complicated. Can you really be friends with benefits and feelings? Based in part on the short film I Want Your Love.

Inception Anonymous Kink Meme - Prompt Post No. 19
I read a delightful story recently that had a whole bunch of cuddles and kissing in it and I'd like to see more.
I'd like a fic where Eames over protectiveness for Arthur in public gets translated into Eames doing all these really sweet things to/for Arthur. Arthur's a little "WTF" but catches on eventually. Like someone's eying Arthur and Eames is all like "I must show that man up and CUDDLE YOU IN PUBLIC!"
It's up to you whether Arthur puts his foot down or is all like "Hm, I could get used to this."

Thirty Ways To Woo Arthur - AndreaLyn - Inception (2010) [Archive of Our Own]

The vital importance of fangirls to one's love life - sirona - Inception (2010) [Archive of Our Own]
Ultimate Survival AU (Man Vs Wild in the States). Follows the trials and tribulations of Eames trying to commit suicide by nature and Arthur tearing his hair out in the process. A judicious application of fangirl squee finally gets them to admit they might feel more for each other than a simple camera man/presenter relationship.
