Merlin reacts on instinct to save Camelot and Arthur from an ancient curse, in front of Uther Pendragon. And now suddenly destiny is unraveling and nothing will ever be the same again.
(Merlin and Arthur centered. Arthur/Gwen in later chapters. AU after season 1.)
Kidnapped by a mad king, Arthur and Merlin must rely on each other like never before. While Arthur struggles with choices that put his heart and duty at odds, Merlin struggles just to stay alive after being stripped of his magic and freedom. With impossible choices and heavy secrets weighing them down, can they manage to escape before all is lost? (Lots of whump & bromance.)

For Merlin, having the world fall apart around him was nothing new, but having someone there to help him pick up the pieces afterwards unfortunately was. Until it happened twice, with two very special people who appeared in his life when he most needed saving.
Modern AU, friendship fic. Sort of Christmas story.

Being different is hard, and some narrow-minded and jealous bullies make Merlin's life rough as he tries to adjust to living in Camelot and being a servant to a Royal Prat. He desperately tries to keep anyone from noticing, but Gaius isn't just anyone, and the old physician isn't about to let his boy suffer alone.
