The Prat Next Door by Kalee60sAlterEgo reviews
When Merlin buys his own piece of the world to live on, he wasn't expecting to move next door to the most gorgeous man to ever roam this earth - one who made Merlins pants tight at just a glimpse. He also didn't expect this man to be an absolute and utter Pillock either….one who just happened to get under his skin completely.

The Riddle of Grief (Alternate ending for the Merlin finale) by Hunith's Spirit reviews
Alternate ending for the Merlin finale, 5x13 (The Diamond of the Day Pt 2). Focus on Merlin's POV and his emotions in the aftermath of things; trying to tie up ends the show left hanging loose and to provide a more satisfactory, unrushed conclusion than what the writers gave us. Spoilers for 5x13, naturally. Fair amount of angst and hurt/comfort. Can Merlin save his friend?

Trees by XphiaDP reviews
Merlin had always liked trees. Trees didn't care if you rambled to them about your day or if you got too excited about finding the perfect skipping stone. They didn't care if you came to them in tears. They only listened and shielded you away from the world below in their leafy branches. But most of all, they kept quiet about a lone child's plights and secrets.

Brushes and Blushes by JessieJay13 reviews
"By the time Merlin began tracing color onto Arthur's mouth, Arthur was certain he was standing closer than he needed to. The drag of the brush against his parted lips was torture when Arthur had a sudden and intense desire for something else to take its place. From the way Merlin was biting his own lip again, he didn't think he was alone in that."

Because life just wasn't confusing enough by Sockitysocks reviews
When you want to attack a kingdom clearly the easiest way to do this isn't with force... but by casting a spell on the king to make him wake up in his servants body. Obviously. An old idea, but i think with a new twist. Un beeta'd so there may be a few mistakes for which i apologise for in advance... anyhoo... enjoy!
