Title: Paroniria
Author: arirawrs
Pairing: Merlin/Arthur, Merlin/Gwaine, Arthur/Gwen, Gwen/Lancelot, with Morgana, Morgause and slight Merlin/Mordred.
Rating: R (for language and graphic violent themes)
Word count: 47,300
Warnings/spoilers: Scenes of blood and gore, torture, poisoning, angst, character death, depression with slight suicidal themes.
Summary: Future!Fic. Uther’s time has come and passed and now it’s the reign of King Arthur. Merlin is officially the Court Magician and can use his magic freely in the streets (and he can finally save Arthur’s royal behind without the fear of being burned at the stake, a definite plus). The people of Albion fall in love with Arthur, as he falls in love Gwen and she continues to hold her flame for Lancelot. All the while, Merlin is hurting, feeling the pain of his unrequited love for Arthur. Sleep evades him and he uses magic in an attempt to drive his insomnia away, but it only make things worse. Horrible nightmares plague him, his memories, for Merlin can no longer simply dream. Merlin pines for his king, Gwaine tries to save Merlin from himself, and all the while Morgana, Mordred, and Morgause plot Merlin’s demise. Trying to escape the living nightmare he’s found himself in, Merlin secretly leaves Camelot (with only his white mouse Sebille for company) to confront Morgana and save the world, but things don’t go according to plan. Arthur finds out he’s left and follows him, catching up with him on the way. Their adventure helps Merlin and Arthur rediscover their friendship and their loyalty to one another. Merlin tries to save Arthur, as Arthur tries to save Merlin; and they’re both as stubborn as always. Can they save each other without destroying them all?

Title: Roll 15 for an Insight Check
Author: morcalivan
Pairing: Merlin/Arthur

Word count: 35,000
Warnings/spoilers: Language. Slash. Boys being silly. You know, the usual.
Summary: Arthur has always known exactly who he was, what was expected of him and the privileges to be gained from it. What he couldn't figure out was where an off-center, too skinny best friend and a crush who seemed to notice everyone but him, fit in.
Includes: HighSchool!AU. Jealous/pining!Arthur. Slightly criminal!Merlin. Rugby matches. D&D games. Lots of cluelessness and denial. One sided Merlin/Gwaine and Arthur/Gwen. Humour, fluff and happy endings.

Title: The Ivy Crown
Author: dayari
Pairing: Merlin/Arthur; Gwaine, Leon, & the other knights; characters from Arthurian legend
Rating: PG-13 to NC-17
Word count: 251,000
Warnings/spoilers: past minor character deaths, violence & slight gore on occasion, drinking, intoxication, sexual situations
Summary: [Post-S3 crossover with Sir Gawain and the Green Knight and The Wedding of Sir Gawain and Dame Ragnelle.] Merlin couldn't have picked a worse time to finally tell Arthur about his magic. In the wake of the battle against the immortal army, a strange visitor disrupts the court, calling himself the Green Knight and proposing a test of the court's integrity. Although Uther turns him away, several of Camelot's northern allies end up mysteriously beheaded over the next few months, and Arthur, Merlin and the knights set out to investigate. They encounter more than they'd bargained for on the way—a reckless young boy, a lady in search of a husband, a centuries-old fairytale that holds more than a grain of truth... and a challenge that ends up being more than just a game.

Rating: PG-13
Word count: 79,957
Warnings/spoilers: Some disturbing dream imagery, canon compliant character death, grief and depression.
Summary: Arthur has finally taken his rightful place as Crown Prince of Camelot but the stress of such an elevation has taken its toll. He and Merlin find themselves tested, perhaps to breaking point as secrets and suspicions boil between them. With everything so fragile, can they hold it together before everything breaks? This is a sequel to The Wheel's Always Turning. However, there is a summary here so you don't have to read it.
