Watching the Girls Go By by OneWonders reviews
A collection of stories about the goings on in Camelot as Arthur, Merlin and the knights set about rebuilding after Morgana's defeat at the end of season 3. Banter and bromance.

Underestimated by Kitty O reviews
Drabbles from the person who -depending on who you ask - may have started the epidemic. They range from angst to crack to Dark! to bromance, but it's overall just a no slash collection of mini stories about our favorite warlock and Co.

Merlin's magic is revealed and Arthur struggles with his views on magic and the issue of trust.
