Pay No Attention
by EyrieStory reviews

Bewildered, Arthur resolves to figure out what could possibly attract a princess to someone like Merlin, only to find that his discoveries lead him down a rabbit hole he never expected. [Merlin, Mithian], Arthur, Gwen

From the Start
by Reid Phantom reviews
"Assisted? I'm pretty sure I saved your life." "I had the situation perfec- Are you trying to make me reconsider letting you go?" It was supposed to be a one time thing. Arthur let the sorcerer run off with his life in return for him saving Arthur's. He had never expected to see the boy again, especially not only two days later in Gaius's chambers.

A series of short, unconnected, in-canon-reveal stories. Tale 2: Alvarr's attempt to recruit Merlin backfires. Tale 3: Alator investigates why Emrys is failing his destiny, and plans to teach the king a lesson in loyalty. Tale 5: Merlin trades destinies, rather than lives. Mordred becomes Emrys, and Merlin flees Camelot to keep Arthur safe...

You Are A Loyal Friend, Merlin
by koala789 reviews
"Arthur's eyes landed on his father. Pale. Cold. Dead… Gone. He inhaled sharply, and stopped right by the doors." In that moment of hesitation, Arthur heard something. Something that changed his view of his servant. Something that forever changed the way he treated his best friend. "I killed him."

"It was me who used magic to cure Gwen's father!" Arthur's excuse for Merlin's abrupt and illogical confession - "He's in love" - serves to clear his manservant... temporarily. "You think because I made the excuse for you, I didn't realize it was just that – an excuse?" Reveal fic, in-canon.

"I don't understand. I know you, Merlin, and you're not a coward. So what makes this time different?" What if Arthur wasn't oblivious? An alternate version of Merlin and Arthur's discussion in 5x12 before Arthur leaves for battle. No slash, no reveal, spoilers for S5. One-shot.

Said and Unsaid
by Ellessaria reviews
Arthur's journey to Avalon is painful in more ways than one. Already struggling to cope with his deadly wound, he also has to deal with the increasingly shocking confessions of his manservant... (Cover art by Wil1969).

No Job For a King
by LadyDunla reviews
Or: How Merlin Got Arthur to Spy on Gwen in episode 5x09. In which Merlin has a plan to reveal the truth to Arthur and the king is decidedly not willing to go along with it. A missing moment from "With All My Heart".

What If She Wasn't?
by Adelina Le Morte March reviews
AU ending to The Lady of the Lake episode. Instead of taking Freya to the lake, Merlin decides to bring her into the castle and try to make her better, refusing to believe the wound is too deep. But, even as she gets better, the problem remains that everyone in Camelot will still be searching for a girl. Which raises the question, what if Freya WASN'T one? One-shot.

Just because she's better it doesn't mean that she doesn't remember everything that happened, everything she did to the ones she loves. A look at the day after the events in With All My Heart with Gwen, Arthur, and Merlin. One-Shot. Possible spoilers for Season 5 eps up to With All My Heart.

Merlin tells Arthur the real reason he should be exiled. Although honestly, how dare Arthur even threaten it? Reveal one-shot which just became a two-shot. Alternate scene for 4.11.

A collection of oneshots. Each chapter is an AU/'what if' for a different episode. All chapters are completely unrelated, even if they are from the same episode. They can be completely different from original episode or just barely. T for some character deaths and because I'm sure I'll slip in a swear word somewhere. Beware: SPOILERS! Ch. 24: 1x07

Season 5 AU The Die is Not Cast
by MonJoh reviews
It started as a few tweaks and became a rewrite of Season 5 … what if the last season had not been about Mordred and Arthur's doom? What if Merlin used that great power he has and Arthur showed the sense one would expect of a leader and they built Albion together? Which may not be easy ... (canon divergence, canon compliant, no slash, canonical death, Arthur/Gwen, Merlin/Mithian)

Dragon? What Dragon?
by ValkyrieVeela reviews
Oneshot. How come no-one ever brought up the war band that was destroyed by Kilgharrah's flames outside the caves in Ealdor? No-one likes to talk about Agravaine's death either. One would think that immediately after the turmoil of a hostile takeover there would have been more questions asked. Well, what if there had been? Rated T for description of bodies.

If I can't use magic

Better Decision Making
by Pawthorn reviews
What the people of Camelot lack in common sense, they make up for with strength, courage, and melodrama. But this series of one-shots explores what might happen if our favorite characters made better choices. Spoilers abound. Now: Series Five Sucked. Merlin can do better.

Set during Goblin's Gold, completely canon. When Gaius accuses Merlin of sorcery, Arthur is given very little time to think. He needs more time, so he develops a split-second plan. Unfortunately, his 'plan' goes awry at every turn.
