Morgana felt Merlin rub under her eyes to clear the tears, and she quickly took his hands, squeezing them in thanks. “The vase was on the other side of the room Merlin.” She whispered softly, her voice hitching in fright.
here is yet another list of my favorite merthur modern au’s, i’ve tried to pick a few that i’ve read like a million times and that i think people should also read like a million times. [also take a look here as well]
College/Uni/High School au’s
Of Pratty Mouth and Knobbly Knees by Sweetiejelly Words: 4k + Rate: Explicit Summary: Merlin was able to more or less ignore his attraction to Arthur for most of the term. But then that one night happens and nothing is ever the same again.
Best You Ever Had by Neuroticnick Words: 36k Rate: Explicit Summary:Arthur has been with just about every girl in the sixth form. Merlin pines from afar, knowing he doesn’t have a chance. Then Merlin gets an invitation, and realises he has a chance after all. Apparently Arthur is bored and wants to try something new. Merlin knows it’s meaningless sex, but he might just be okay with that. Even if the butterflies in his stomach say otherwise.
Close Quarters by RocknVaughn Words: almost 4k Rate: teen and up audiences Summary: Albion University’s rather unique ”Get to Know Your Roommate” exercise has Merlin seeing red…and blue, and yellow, and green.
Stuck on You by Clea2011 Words: 2k Rate: teen and up audiences Summary: At least Arthur wasn’t actually stuck there with a stranger. Although the fact that it was Merlin was in many ways more terrible, because he’d just had to watch his best friend almost pull the skin of his hand off, trying unsuccessfully to get free.
A Suitcase Full of Flowers by Loonyfish Words: 7k Rate: teen and up audiences Summary: In the light of day, Merlin began to realise that something was completely off with this suitcase when he picked it up. It was ten times heavier that it should have been if full of his own crap, and for another thing it was what his mother would describe as charcoal grey whilst his little bag was definitely more of a sort of, well, brown colour.
In which Merlin oh so cleverly picks up the wrong suitcase and disaster ensues.
Dew Point by Kianspo Words: 58k Rate: Explicit Summary: Arthur Pendragon is as popular and successful as a sixth former can be. He hasn’t quite figured out his future yet, but it’s going to be brilliant, he’s certain. At least until some daring stranger on a cool motorcycle topples his world upside down on the first day of school. Modern magical AU.
The Punk!Merlin Au by L_awlietxoxx Words: 3k Rate: teen and up audience Summary: (inspired by my punk!merlin drawings, and i still can’t wrap my head around the fact that my drawings inspire people to write fics :’) - Charles)
“People of Camelot,” the king’s voice rang out, “I give you Merlin Emrys, Court Sorcerer!”
Face burning and mouth dry, Merlin took Arthur’s outstretched hand and slid shakily off the dragon’s back. Arthur pulled him to face the crowd, pressing their shoulders together and lifting their joined hands for all to see. Merlin felt dizzy as the roar of the crowd washed over him, but Arthur’s hand in his grounded him.
Tearing his gaze away from the cheering mass of people before them, his eyes met Arthur’s in a perfect moment of joy, and all the magic in his soul was no more than a candle next to the love and pride burning in his heart.

I love how active the Merlin Fandom is. There are Fests. There are challenges. There are Big Bangs and Reverse Big Bangs. There are Drabble Communities and Drawble Communities. There are icon competitions. There are stills competitions. There are Parties. There are fic reccers galore. There are blogs like ‘shitmerlinsays’ and ‘merlinbloggers’ and ‘Merlinconfessions’ and ‘Ask-Merlin’. There are blogs like /yours/. Cheers everyone, for making this fandom the best.
I thought i should share with you guys some of my current favorite modern!au merthur fics. This is partly because i’ve been thinking about doing so for quite some time, seeing as i’m constantly reading everything i can find. and therefore thought it would be a good idea to share my findings. I’ll be putting them under read more, and i might make a tag so that i can update it. idk if it will be useful but heck why not
