Hi!! If possible, could you show me the list of the saddest fics you read? sorry for botthering you !
You’re not bothering, you’ve submitted the request at the right time ;) Sad & Angst are definitely entwined in this fandom, so as much as I would have loved to post ‘all sad’ ones I couldn’t help to notice we have 8 lists of ‘angst' and 4 listsof ‘heartbreaking' with lots of fics with the same theme you've requested and that will surely break your heart… if that's your thing XD
The light in your eyes by Tambear Merlin is a teacher and Arthur his student (I don’t want the age gap to be really big though like this is Merlins first year teaching or something) and Merlin thinks that Arthur is a total slacker and puts no effort into his work. Except he does, but Uther is abusing him at home and it makes life a lot more stressful and leaves less time for work.
Untitled by Anon Arthur is a cop: one day he assists to a murder of a child (the same age of his son) and when he comes home to his family he collapses in Merlin’s arms crying. The mere thought of losing his son, or Merlin, gets more real when he experiences death right in front of his eyes. Merlin knows how to handle Arthur and soon he shall be ready for another day, another battle.
After The Storm by cait_roswen Merlin and Arthur spend one night together, but Arthur skips out on his duties and Camelot becomes overrun by Morgause’s soldiers. They lose the Keep, and are forced to flee. This is the story of how they survive the winter, and try to find each other again in the wreckage of their destiny.
Seven by Anon Merlin and Arthur lose their only son Leon.
Pianos are Made for Falling by fishwrites Arthur is a world class violinist, trapped in Sydney, Australia, by his fear of flying. In the wake of a mediocre concert, vicious critics and with barely a month to go before his next (hopefully reputation-saving) recital, Arthur is almost at breaking point. When his accompanist, Morgana, breaks her wrist in a car accident, Arthur is more or less doomed. And the story begins, when the Maestro at the conservatoire, Gaius Stresemann, recommends his protege Merlin Emrys to step in. Merlin, who plays by ear, as he pleases and really just wants to be a kindergarten teacher.
Hi I was wondering if you can help me find a sepcific fic where merlin is a firefighter with morgana and gwaine on his team and arthur is a headmaster and has a daughter
Reflashby leviathans_moon The thing with putting out fires in schools was: they often led to biscuits and squiggly paintings of happy firemen. The fire in Albion primary school, however, leads Merlin to Arthur and his daughter Lynn; to more biscuits, but also pancakes; to fun and butterflies; and to a whole new world of letting someone in; ready or not.
I'm looking for this fic and i thought i bookmarked it but perhaps not. Um, it's a canon fic where merlin draws arthur and magics him alive for affection because he thinks arthur doesn't love him back. and i think arthur walks in on them having sex in a forest? Thanks for your help!
Drawn from the Heart Merlin is an accomplished artist. It’s not a secret, not like his magic, but very few people are aware of his talent. Arthur isn’t one of them. Unlike the real prince, the portraits of Arthur that Merlin draws stare up at him with affection, love and sometimes even desire. So when Arthur inexplicably pushes Merlin away, the resulting feelings of loss and loneliness cause Merlin to make a desperate decision: he brings his latest drawing of Arthur to life. And this Arthur loves Merlin…passionately.
I'm looking for canon era magical quest fics! Something longer than 20K, where Merlin and Arthur have to go off together to solve or find something. Any new ones? Pre-slash is good too!
Written In The Scars On Our Heartsby AluraEmbrey On the eve of the celebration in honour of Arthur’s first year as King of Camelot, the validity of his right to rule is challenged. An ancient Druidic rite of passage must be completed before evening of his birthday or he’ll lose the throne without even a magic attack in site. Thankfully, Merlin is there to ride into the wild at his side.
Shelterby sinestrated Eight years have passed since Merlin fled Camelot after revealing his magic, leaving behind a home and a budding relationship with Arthur. Now, with his kingdom crumbling beneath a mysterious magical attack, Arthur reaches out to sorcerers throughout the land in search of a solution—and gets one sorcerer in particular he never expected. After so much time apart, Merlin and Arthur have to learn how to fit each other all over again, and all the while sinister forces bent on the destruction of Camelot threaten everything they have ever believed in.
Ivy and Amaranthby Thursday_Next While clearing out Morgana’s old rooms, Merlin discovers a pair of unusual magical bracelets. Arthur wants to destroy them, of course, and so begins a quest that will take them over snowy mountains and through rain-soaked forests, dealing with Druids, bandits and inns of questionable repute. With the future of magic itself hanging in the balance and matters complicated by the changing nature of their relationship, Merlin discovers that destiny comes at a price.
A Disarming Act of Loyaltyby barbitone Arthur is severely injured in a fight with a mysterious creature, and Merlin’s determination to help brings certain secrets to light and turns Arthur’s world upside down.
Gulf of Yearsby Cookie When they are attacked returning to Camelot with Balinor, the Dragonlord is injured rather than killed - and everything Arthur knew or believed is turned on its head.
The Very Important Questby Hope On a Very Important Quest, Arthur and Merlin share clothes, beds, bathwater and secrets.
This Dark Road Will Lead Us Where We Want to Beby accordingtomel When a visiting noble attacks Arthur with the intent to kill, Merlin is forced to openly use magic to save his life. With execution less than twenty-four hours away, a desperate Arthur tricks Merlin into binding their souls in order to prevent his death as a sorcerer. But the soul-bond has some unexpected consequences, and when Uther demands that Arthur unbind his soul so he can carry on with the execution, the two set out on a journey to find answers. Along the way they deal with the ramifications of Merlin’s deception, discover some truths about their growing feelings for one another, and are forced to make some huge decisions that could have an impact on their lives forever.
What’s Left Of Meby myrmidryad Morgana’s latest plan involves paying a man to lead Merlin and Arthur to the cave of a monster that is terrorising the locals who live nearby. But why is it so vital that Merlin accompanies Arthur on this journey? And what do his secrets have to do with it?
The Isle of Moraby Ceebee When Arthur and Merlin go on a trip to the mysterious Isle of Mora, the best case scenario would be that Merlin summons up the courage to finally tell Arthur how he feels about him, they have amazing sex, and enjoy the scenery. The worst case would be that Merlin gets magnificently sunburnt, accidentally reveals his magic, is almost sacrificed to the Gods of the Isle, loses his memory, and finds himself on the run with an Arthur who is struggling to come to terms with Merlin’s betrayal and the idea that magic is not all he was taught it was. This story is a combination of both scenarios.
Hi! I once saw this fic on live journal and I only read two fics from the author but one of them was about arthur and merlin and how Arthur was sad he was gonna die but merlin said 'because we'll meet again, don't worry' and it was very fluffy and angsty and the other was merlin with Arthur and mordred and he loved them both. It'd be nice of you could find one of them for me :). Sorry to bother you!
