Loaded March series by [personal profile] footloose is an awesome work of art (Arthur/Merlin). The story is epic, and yet the emotions and actions of the characters are very much on a personal level. Even before the author finished the series, I had reread it several times--sometimes immediately after I'd finished. If you love Arthur/Merlin, then this story is for you. Here is the author's summary:

Captain Arthur Pendragon has put together the best team of specialists that the SAS has ever seen, but when his superiors assign Lieutenant Merlin Emrys as his communications officer, Arthur does everything to make him feel unwelcome. Arthur's job is to protect and guide his team through dangerous missions, and he worries that he can't do that when the newest member has a mysterious background and acts suspicious when he thinks no one is looking.

As their assignments become more dangerous, Merlin can't help but to use his magic to keep his team -- even his prat of a Captain -- safe from threats they couldn't possibly understand. But when they are sent on a undercover operation against a group of zealots intent on a magical apocalypse, Merlin needs to confront his fear of discovery and derision, and to finally trust his team with his secret.

Arthur and Merlin rely on each other for more than the sake of their mission. The entire world is at stake. When they learn -- from dragons, no less -- that they are prophesied to restore the balance of magic to the world, they fight on regardless of the outcome, because duty, honour and loyalty is a far stronger driving force than destiny.

Candle, Cup, and Casket by http://archiveofourown.org/users/Desiderii/pseuds/Desiderii is an amazing Merlin (Merlin/Arthur) space opera that grabs hold of you and just DOES NOT LET GO! I stayed up all night reading, as I was so caught up in the story and characters that sleep was impossible. This epic is awesome in every sense of the word. Here is the author's summary:

In some far distant future, Arthur heir Pendragon, Captain of the galley-class Kilgharrah and Prince of the Camelot, answers a distress call from the alien-besieged Ealdor. There, he finds Merlin, a plausibly-deniable sorcerer with an irresistible grin. This is the story of how the terraformation of planet Albion was threatened by the prejudices of the past, of finding solid ground and taking a stand, and of giving yourself reasons to trust.

A phantasmagorical space opera, high fantasy in a science fiction setting, this work includes cyborg Arthur, fighter-pilot Morgana, spectral dragons, Lovecraftian horrors, sentient spaceships, and a little bit of that kissing stuff.

The Route to Advancement series by [personal profile] magog_83 is a fun look at Arthur and Merlin from the POV of Percy, a knight new to Camelot. I love the interaction between Arthur and Merlin, and Percy's reaction to it. Plus, Percy's horse is a riot. Nice to have some humor in this fandom which, with all the death and secrets, can often be a bit dark.

Onfindan by [livejournal.com profile] astolat is an action/adventure/romance Merlin slash story (Merlin/Arthur). And it's simply beautiful. I've read it five times in the last couple of weeks. (It's on my iPod, so I can read it anywhere.) Merlin and Arthur are exactly what I want them to be, and their voices come through very clearly. As many Merlin stories do, Onfindan deals with Arthur discovering Merlin's secret, but that's only the beginning. As the story progresses, we see more and more glimpses of the men that Arthur and Merlin will become (and that Merlin is head over heels in love with his prince).

(Yes, yes, I've become obsessed with another fandom. And, for once, it's one in which many, many people are currently involved. ...That sentence looks very strange, but it's grammatically correct... If you haven't had a chance to catch Merlin yet, as it's on the BBC, I've read that NBC has picked it up to show this summer in the US.)
