Author has written 11 stories for Merlin.

So basically I’m a flunked out engineering student who likes Merlin a little (okay, a lot) more than I probably should. Don’t get me wrong! I’m still in school. And I probably just gave you way too much personal information, so I’ll stop now.

I will probably write mostly for Merlin, although, I haven’t written very much yet. Most of what I write will probably take place after season 4. And it will mostly be one-shots because I am new. My favorite genres are humor, crack, and angst.

I am probably one of the few people on this site who doesn't really ship anyone. If I were to ever write romance, it would probably be for comedic purposes.

I will never write slash.

I appreciate all reviews! And I appreciate constructive criticism! You do not really have to worry about offending me, so you don’t have to spend hours stressing over how to tactfully word something. Okay, maybe not hours, but you get the idea.

And now, I’ll conclude this profile. More likely than not, there is someone out there who could identify me from this. And this will probably be tracked, because everything on the Internet seems to be tracked nowadays. Believe me! It is! And it’s creepy!

And when I become famous, this page and all of my stories will come back to haunt me. (Heavy, heavy sarcasm with this line, since that sort of thing gets lost in text.) Though they still might! (Most people call me paranoid. I’ll let you decide.)

And remember, when life gives you lemons, laugh at it. You'd save calories by not drinking lemonade.

I Feel Your Pain by fernazab reviews
What if you could kill someone by killing someone else? That's what someone tries to do since killing Arthur is obviously too hard . Little does this person know that Merlin wasn't the best choice for this spell. NO SLASH. As of July 2013 this story is on hiatus for at least 18 months.

Let My People Go by Alaia Skyhawk reviews
At what point does destiny break, or rather at what point do we realise it is broken? How do we know when it is about to go astray? What do we do when we understand that what is happening isn't meant to be? What Merlin did, was walk away...

The One Without by Princess Alyra reviews
When danger threatens the Old Religion itself, and the two parts of his destiny are at war with one another, Merlin is faced with an ultimatum: save magic, or save Arthur. "No matter what happens, magic must return."

After Ealdor by finn1013 reviews
There's a fine line between good and evil, and Merlin wonders if he's crossed it. Angst. Missing scenes from 4.13, or AU within the episode itself. No slash.

A Friend in Need by Elfpen reviews
Gwaine has a problem. A big problem. A possibly treasonous, very dangerous, uncontrollable problem that may or may not get him killed and put all of his friends in danger. He once told Merlin that he was the only friend he had, and maybe that isn't true anymore. But Merlin is still the only friend he can trust. And he needs help. Non-slash. Post S4. Rated for drinking/drunkenness.

Merlin has dreamed of this moment since he discovered his destiny. As Camelot is once again on the verge of falling, he has no choice but to reveal what he is to Arthur...no matter if either of them is prepared to face the reality of it. Big Reveal fic.

When I Least Deserve It by Literaria reviews
Merlin is convinced he has to die for Arthur again. Arthur gets wind of it and is having none of it. Desperate times do as such times are often wont to do, and produce desperate measures. Spoilers for S4. Very light T.

Fictional Bandits by ypput reviews
One shot - There wasn't a great deal of getting around the fact that Merlin had just knocked the Crowned Prince of Camelot unconscious - When Arthur came round 'not happy' was likely to be somewhat of an understatement...

A collection of drabbles. Will include a variety of genres, including angst, crack, and humor. No slash. Rated T just to be safe. Chapter 4: Merlin really was making that up.
