Why Love Matters by fr333bird (Arthur/Merlin; NC-17)
Summary: Arthur needs help overcoming issues with physical intimacy in order to clinch a business deal with demonstrative Italians. Merlin, his assistant, suggests that he attends a 'cuddle workshop' to get him over his fears. Adult content eventually.
Notes: This is just a happy, feel good fic -- that is an absolute delight to read. I found myself really identifying with Arthur in this, as I hate unnecessary physical contact. Arthur and Merlin are great together, Hunith is a marvel and Uther is a dear. Great read!
Preparation by lamardeuse (Arthur/Morgause; NC-17)
Summary: Morgause teaches Arthur about himself.
Notes: HOT!!! If you like pegging that is ;) Cougar Morgause, and Arthur in denial.
Something About You by lamardeuse (Arthur/Merlin; NC-17)
Summary: Arthur was now entirely certain he'd lost what was left of his mind.
Notes: A hot about discovery and trying new things. Arthur is adorable in this, and Merlin is rocking :) No actual anal, but rimming :)
What Child Is This by lamardeuse (Arthur/Merlin; NC-17)
Summary: A modern AU with Merlin, Arthur, mayhem, a baby and a jingly elf hat.
Notes: Another great fic by this amazing author! Lot's of fun, lots of self discovery, lots of denial and a baby thrown in for good measure - brilliant! Morgana and Gaius are stars :)
The Crown of the Summer Court by astolat (Arthur/Merlin; NC-17)
Summary: "The king sent me to get you," Merlin said, with a tone that implied strongly that he wasn't rolling his eyes where Arthur could see, but just wait until his back was turned. "He said you're to get changed into formal clothes and meet him in the Great Hall, there's a delegation coming from the Summer Court."
Notes: An amazing fic, Merlin is a total BAMF which I love -- kickass powerful, and Arthur volunteers to come along for the ride. Lots of magic, lots of fighting, lots of family arguments, some very hot sex, and lots of feelings make this a fantastic read! Oh, and a scandalized Uther, and some perving elves ;)
Perfect by scatterglory (Arthur/Merlin; NC-17)
Summary: “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have … I saw your ring. But you … you’re just so … and I thought you were checking me out, and you seemed like you wanted it, and I wanted you so much...” Merlin trailed off, staring earnestly into Arthur’s eyes.
Arthur went cold. Of course Merlin was apologizing. Merlin was with Will, and he was with Sophia. This was for the best.
“Yeah.” His voice was hoarse.
“Yeah what?” Merlin asked uncertainly.
Yeah, you shouldn’t have. “Yeah, I wanted it.”
Notes:One of my all-time favourite fics. It hits every mark. It's hot, it's full of feelings, there are sweet bits, there are rough bits. Arthur is a complete closet case, about to get married to a woman he doesn't really love but can't stay away from Merlin. Perfect!
Brilliant Absurdity by mysecretashes (Arthur/Merlin; NC-17)

Rince, Lather, Repeat by leashy_bebes (Arthur/Merlin; NC-17)

Haven by Chance by eurydice (Arthur/Percival; NC-17)
Summary:Percival Chance looks like he might have it all, but his shyness and insecurity cripple him from any kind of real relationship. Until he meets a gorgeous blond at a club one night and decides to take a chance. When he finds out his hook-up is none other than Arthur Pendragon, one of the most powerful businessmen in London, he's convinced he's made a terrible mistake.

Notes:Long fic is long - but well worth it. It's beautiful -- Arthur always the top meets Percival and, for once, considers being the bottom.
