    Summary

    When Merlin first hears that Arthur has been betrothed, his ribs pull inwards with an odd little hitch, and he only allows himself a second—which he needs in order to coordinate spinning in place without falling on his face—before he’s running to Arthur’s chambers.

    "I've spent days away from the castle in the hopes that when I came back, this betrothal would have been fortuitously dissolved for an unlikely but compelling reason, Arthur. Yet when it turned out that, against all odds, that is exactly what had happened, you thought--what? That you'd let me drive myself half-mad for a few more days, and wait to see how that turned out?"

    "I--you've … Half-mad?" Arthur asks.

    "Young prince, you have been hiding in the doorway for some months now," the dragon said, idly inspecting a claw. "I have been expecting a visit for quite some time."

    "I'm not saying I'll ask my father to bring magic back," Arthur said, hands cupping the back of Merlin's neck, drawing him closer and moving to cup his face. He looked at Merlin, eyes never tiring of looking at him, memorising him. "But if you think you can just go back to being alone, you're wrong."

    “Sit down,” Morgana tells him. “You’ll want to be sitting for this. Merlin and I have something to tell you.” Arthur starts to open his mouth, but she interrupts. “But you have to promise to listen. Merlin?”

    Merlin stands by her awkwardly. “I have magic. She has magic. We both have magic,” he says in a rush. Then he stops and waits.

    “Yes, very eloquent, thank you,” Morgana sighs.

    They live. They live. They live, and dress their wounds; they live, and they fight on, fumbling, holding hands in the dark as they face the bright, potential future.
