Author has written 1 story for Merlin.

I not-so-recently now fell down the rabbit hole of reading Merlin fanfiction, which has resulted in my perpetual head-stories becoming Merlin fanfiction too. However much I do not mind my current state of affairs, I’ve reached the point where I must dump out some of the content of my brain. I like that this site seems really open, so I’m giving it a shot and throwing my shyness out the window to try posting some stories here. Hopefully they’ll be good, and you’ll like them. Reviews and constructive criticism always welcome! I give props to everyone who is really active in publishing on this site, your everyday courage helped me to get here too.

(ps., my username could be a sneak peak into something of a future epic-fantasy book series that may or may-not get written someday :)

Try Again by SlytherPuff123 reviews
It's finally Merlin's day off, when Morgana attacks Camelot... again. He disguises himself in a cloak and heads to the place where the evil sorcerers always go: the throne room. He and Morgana fight, and Merlin has a rant about originality. BAMF!Merlin/Emrys. Not a reveal fic, except for Morgana.

Sequel to 'Of Swords and Warlords'. They were home, back in Camelot, with their ordeal over. Or at least it should've been.

Destiny sends a worn and weary Merlin straight into the care of Mab, Queen of the Fairies. Arthur and his knights are there too, only, for them...it's not as fun. Slight AU ending.

What Type of Soul reviews
My first fanfiction ever, so please be kind! This is a reveal fic where I've skipped over all of the boring set-up and have jumped right into the action. Set sometime post S4-ish, but before S5, only canon characterizations. This fic explores the "two sides of the coin" thing by mixing in a little of the lore I've made for my personal fantasy-epic about soul-magic and relationships
