    Summary

    Arthur and Merlin have been captured by a sorceress, she is seeking revenge on Uther for the death of her son, by killing his. Arthur and Merlin escape as soon as they wake up, and Arthur kills the sorceress, but in her last few moments, since she can't kill him, the sorceress curses him. A lasting spell that Merlin had no idea how to remove without time to study it.

    "I curse you son of Uther Pendragon, to feel nothing but pain until you have feasted on the flesh of humanity. Become the sort of monster you would accuse those of magic of willing to be. And may your father put you down like the wild beast you will become, let him suffer the death of a child, in the most horrid way one can imagine. Just as I had to watch mine burn."

    Luckily Merlin has a solution, it's temporary but technically fulfills the specifics of the curse without making Arthur kill anyone, only problem, he is now in no position to research how to counteract the curse. And ok, there are a few more problems, such as Arthur now knowing he has magic, Merlin unable to protect Arthur from outside threats.
    At least he has a chance to observe the curse, up close and personal.

    Summary

    As Merlin sucked in air, his breath rattled in his chest.
    Even over the beating of their horses’ hooves, Arthur could hear it.
    Too shallow.
    They were running out of time.
    If they didn’t make it to the lake soon, Arthur realized, Merlin was going to die.

    Summary

    “I see, you have been well, my Lord.”

    Arthur furrows his brows at that, carefully eyeing his servant.

    “I see that you have returned.”

    Merlin’s smile turns into bittersweet melancholia.

    “I have not, Sire. I cannot, when your laws exile me. Or worse.”

    Summary

    Bereft of the emotions that should have come at the implications of the sentence, Uther's tone is stoic as if his own son is a common prisoner. “You are to leave Camelot by nightfall. If we find you have returned to the grounds of this kingdom we will have no choice but to carry out your original sentence in the highest order.”

    Exiled and disinherited? Brilliant.


    An AU where Uther, under the influence of Troll!Catrina and Goblin!Gaius legitimately disinherits Arthur and he must deal with the consequences thereof in an attempt to reclaim Camelot.

    Summary

    With magic being freed from persecution, Arthur decides to journey to a temple that magic users have begun trekking to. Their pilgrimage, Leon called it. Merlin can't place why he thinks it's a bad idea, but feels like they shouldn't go. Naturally, where Arthur goes, Merlin goes, and so the King, his servant (read: friend), the Knights of the Round Table, all ride out to investigate the temple in hopes of proving that magic is truly free and not a ploy of the Pendragons to instigate another purge.
