Title: And the World You Promised
Author: Jesterlady
Pairings: Arthur/Gwen
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 66,739
Warnings: Crazy!Morgana, cryptic descriptions of torture
Summary: After the battle of Camlann Arthur and Merlin must somehow come to terms with the ramifications of Merlin's secret in time to defeat Morgana and fulfill their destiny.
Author's notes: Thanks so much to [livejournal.com profile] moon01234 who offered to beta this for me and really helped me think things through. Also to [livejournal.com profile] jennybliss for her artwork. It's so beautiful and perfect. This was written for the [livejournal.com profile] paperlegends Big Bang 2013.
Hopefully this fic will deliver what I felt the show didn't, an actual resolution to the problems that stopped Arthur and Merlin's destiny from being fulfilled, and usher in that Golden Era. My intent was to focus on Arthur and Merlin's friendship and as well as Arthur and Gwen's marriage. But I also missed Merlin/Gwen friendship and strived to showcase that here. This means there wasn't a lot of time for knights and so I feel bad Leon, Percival, and Gwaine get shafted a little bit here and there wasn't as much Gaius/Merlin interaction as I like in my Merlin stories.
Hopefully no one is annoyed by the many scenes where Merlin tells stories about the past, but I personally always wanted to just get other people's reactions to the history of the show, so I hope that doesn't bore you.
Disclaimer: I don't own Merlin. Some lines are from the show. The title is from a song by Hillsong. All of the chapter titles are from the song King by Lauren Aquilina. There is an amazing Arthur fanvid on Youtube using this song by missjessieban and I highly recommend you check it out.

Title: The Passion Pair Love Strolled
by Jesterlady
Rating: PG
Pairing: Arthur/Gwen
Word count: 4,603
Summary: The Knights of the Round Table all have their own opinions about the King and Queen of Camelot. Sometimes those opinions get changed.
A/N: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] merlin_redux challenge. Hopefully, this fills the prompt okay. I started writing each section and then realized there needed to be a group dynamic so I tied it together.
Disclaimer: I don't own Merlin. The title is by Sarah Daly.

Disclaimer: I don't own either Merlin or Sleeping Beauty. The title is by Eugene Peterson.
A/N: I need to stop watching Disney movies because they all make me want to crossover Merlin crack with them.

Title: Make Firm the Shuddering Breath
by Jesterlady
Pairing: Arthur/Gwen
Rating: PG
Summary: Arthur confronts Morgana in the throne room and she lets slip a crucial bit of information about Gwen and Lancelot.
Disclaimer: I don't own Merlin. Some lines are from the episode. The title is from Rudyard Kipling.
A/N: Besides needing the truth about Gwen's so called indiscretion to come to light, I propose one theory here: villains like to take credit for their villainous deeds. Monologuing, you know. Granted it's more effective and horrific to not take credit, but I think even someone like Morgana would want to get that one final dig in before death.

A Dalliance With Words
By Jesterlady
Pairing: Arthur/Gwen
Rating: PG
Summary: It's the 21st century and Merlin's teaching Arthur and Gwen all about living in the future. Such an education includes essentials like watching the Disney version of their story.
Disclaimer: I don't own Merlin or the Sword in the Stone. The title is by Eugene Peterson.
A/N: Don't really know how this came about. Just pictured them watching the Sword in the Stone and it flew off from there.
