Title: Finding Happy Endings

Fandom: Once Upon a Time

Rating: T

Pairing(s): Snow/Prince Charming, Mary Margaret/David, others to be determined

Spoilers: Whole series up to this date. If I cite an episode that airs later, I will make specific mention.

Warnings: AU, some mild fairytale violence, mild language

Beta: Me, so typos likely (If anyone wants to beta...)

Disclaimer: No, I don't own anything aside from massive amounts of college debt.

Summary: Caught between life and death when the curse hit, Prince Charming remained there until Emma returned to Storybrooke and the curse began to break. Now, hovering between two lives, he must fight to remember who he is. As the curse continues to weaken, he won't be the only one.

Author's Note: *Peaks around the corner* So…it's been ages since I updated this. I don't know if any of you have been reading my other fics, but as I've stated there I had a lot of things crop up. End of the year, packing the dorm, driving halfway across the country, moving back in, getting a job. The list goes on. I'm a bit ashamed to admit that this fic got put on the back burner. I can't guarantee that updates will be terribly regular. My job requires a lot of writing and research. My free time is going to be drastically slashed. That said, I won't abandon this fic. It just might be a bit slow. That said, enjoy!

Edit* Someone pointed out to me that David was a bit too coherent in the ambulance. I went back to reread it and realized that they are absolutely right. I wrote that convo and ended up changing course with the chapter. After taking so long to get back to this fic it didn't quite register what I'd done. So this is an edit to fix that and to make the whole chapter flow a bit better. I really do apologize. I had my head out of this fic for so long and I hadn't even been able to catch up with the series because of finals and moving back home that I probably wasn't in the right frame of mind to be posting.

Title: Harry Potter and the Return of Merlin

Fandom: Merlin/Harry Potter Crossover

Rating: T for slight violence and language

Pairings: Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione...or at least the precursors to the relationships

Spoilers: HP - definitely through the end of OotP, since Merlin is supposed to know more than most, there may be other spoilers as well. Merlin – all seasons. I have now watched Season 4, so it’s fair game as well. You have been warned.

Warnings: AU. Slight Violence and language.

Beta: the wonderful animeloveramy. I don’t know what I’d do without her.

Disclaimer: I do not own Harry Potter or Merlin. They belong to J.K. Rowling and BBC respectively. They have simply been kind enough to allow dreamers like me to indulge in fantasies involving their characters. Some of the text is directly from, very close to, or inspired by what J.K. Rowling originally wrote. This is simply because this fic closely follows OotP and I see no reason to pretend that I’m better than J.K. Rowling and try to rewrite it. I will try to leave an AN at the bottom when I use large amounts of the text.

Summary: The moment Voldemort regained his body, the Old Religion cried out. For the first time in more than a thousand years, Merlin is called from the forward to right the balance once more. Disguised as a fifth year student, he must fight to stop Voldemort when it is not his destiny to do so.

Author’s Note: I want to thank everyone for their support and I want to clear up a few things. First, I’m not going to but this fic on hold. I just meant that my time to write is going to be drastically cut down. It’s taken longer than anticipated to get the job started, so I’ve had more time the last few weeks than I thought. The job I have is going to require a lot of writing and research. It’s going to be time consuming and exhausting. That doesn’t mean I’ll stop working on this fic. Second, “fics of this nature” are breaking the fourth wall fics. Stories where they characters read the books or watch the show. A lot of my favorite breaking the fourth wall fics from the HP fandom are being deleted, as are M rated fics. The latter to anything I’m currently working on and my M rated fics are backed. Breaking the fourth wall fics aren’t popular in the Merlin fandom, but I’d like to wait until this blows over a bit before I work on it, if it means getting it deleted.

While I’m on the topic, if anyone knows someone or has themselves written fic versions of the episodes or even if they’re interested in trying, I’d greatly appreciate the help with A Ripple in Destiny. I’m running into issues getting the episodes written in a way that satisfies me. I’m getting so frustrated wit that that I can’t get the commentary written. If someone would like to cowrite with me, I’d love the help.

Sorry for the massive AN. This chapter is NOT beta’d because I’m too impatient to wait after how long the last one took to get out. On to the fic!

Author’s Note: Just a head’s up, there’s a massive AN at the end of the chapter so I don’t delay you too long dealing with some housekeeping. I will be adding some of the info there to my profile, but I do ask that you read it. Thanks!

Author’s Note: OH MY GOD! Not only has this story passed the two hundred review mark with flying colors, but the last chapter got Fifty reviews! (Well forty-nine as of this AN, but you get the point.) I cannot thank you enough for your support in this. It really means so much that this fic has been so well received.

In one of the reviews, someone pointed out that a couple of chapters ago, when Merlin confronts Sirius in chapter 7, Sirius says “Oh, Merlin.” Just to make it clear, he’s saying that the same way we muggles would say “Oh, damn,” or “Oh, crap.” It’s just a saying. He has no idea that Merlin is standing in front of him. At this point, Dumbledore and Snape are the only HP characters who know who Myrddin is. Sorry for the confusion.

Also, in answer to everyone who pointed this out, yes I had Merlin slip on his age on purpose as you will see in this chapter. The way I see it, he’s never been the best at lying and he’s out of practice as it is. Besides, I have to keep the trio curious, don’t I?

Sorry for the massive AN. One to the fic!

Author’s Note: Someone mentioned in a review that they thought I wasn’t including Ron and Hermione enough when talking from Harry’s POV. I’ll try to work on that a bit, because they are extremely important characters where Harry is concerned, but I just want to explain why they haven’t had a more active role. There are three reasons I haven't included them more. 1) Everything that happend in OotP happend unless I mentioned that it didn't or tweaked it myself, so all of that trio loveliness is still going on. 2) This has mostly been from merlin's POV and he's more concerned with Harry (at the moment) getting his feet under him, and actively making a difference in the war. He's been keeping his distance from the trio to make sure that they don't become suspicious of him. Starting soon, he'll be spending more time with all of them and Ron and Hermione will have more screen time. 3) So far, Harry's parts have mostly been introspective, from my POV. It's his thoughts concerning Merlin. I hope that helps.

Author’s Note: OH MY FREAKING GOD!!! I HAVE OVER A HUNDRED REVIEWS ON THIS FIC!!! *breaths* Sorry. I’m calm now.

Seriously though, this is my most popular fic to date and you have no idea how happy that makes me. I have over a hundred reviews, favorites, and alerts. That has never happened before. None of my longer/completed fics have that gained this kind of a following. Thank you all soooo much.
