    Summary

    Arthur, unexpectedly, let out a laugh, shaking his head exasperatedly. “Gods you sound like Merlin!”

    “Heh!” She smirked, wiggling her feet over the side of the bed. “Great minds think alike!” She teased, winking at the boy.

    “More like idiots think alike considering you're a sorceress moving back into Camelot!” He reiterated, earning himself an eye-roll from her in return.

    “Well us idiots have got to band together if we wish to survive right?” Meredith joked, chuckling as the prince groaned.

    When a rambunctious, shape-shifting druid, that seems far too well acquainted with the royals, comes to Camelot, the courses of destiny and fate take a whole new turn. One where the future and present seem far more perilous than one may remember.

    Summary

    “Merlin has magic…”

    Three words uttered by Uther Pendragon’s spirit sets off a chain of events that will dramatically alter the lives of not only Merlin and Arthur, but everyone around them. Before Arthur can fully come to terms with his friend’s betrayal Merlin is captured by a vengeful Morgana who knows he is Emrys. Fearing for his life, Arthur sets out on his own to find his friend and bring him home…hopefully before Morgana’s army attacks Camelot.

    Merlin finds himself far from home, without his magic, and at the mercy of Morgana. When all her efforts to break Merlin fail, Morgana wonders just what it will take to crush his spirit. A desperate attempt to do so has a startling effect, not just on Merlin, but on Morgana as well. It forces them both to face the past and the feelings they thought long buried. Merlin knows the only way out is through and if he can bring Morgana with him then just maybe they could alter the path fate had laid out for them.

    Summary

    Very often and sometimes a bit too many times for his taste, Gwaine found himself in very unique situations when near to Merlin.

    The smell of blood and dirt smothered his senses, and Gwaine couldn't get up the energy to remove himself from this situation.

    At the moment, it seemed quite a bit unusual to watch that very manservant drag dead bodies into a hole so casually.
    Gwaine drinks and Merlin assassinated people. No biggie.

    Summary

    “This...is even more than I could ever imagine,” Merlin answered, his face a little flushed after all the cuddling. “I don’t know how to handle all this, I’m quite afraid, to be honest,” Merlin laughed nervously.

    Summary

    “No.”

    “Young warlock-”

    No. You must be joking!”

    The little parcel wailed from its place on the ledge. Merlin immediately took a step back, eyeing it with distaste before looking somewhat guilty a half second later. He turned to the dragon with a desperate expression, who only offered a shrug in answer.

    Summary

    Arthur is the reigning king of Camelot. He spends his mornings training new knights, his afternoons in council, his nights with Merlin, and by all accounts, he should be serenely happy. It's only when his nights grow restless that shadows begin to lengthen in the crevices of his life. Merlin's nightmares jerk them both awake in the hours before dawn, and Merlin's face grows taut and strained with secrets as the days pass by. Arthur tries fruitlessly to get the truth out of him, only to be met with hostility and anger, and turns to frustration himself. It's in the intimate silence of night when Merlin at last tells him the truth, and in the aftermath, Arthur is left to realize that there is no such thing as being unnatural, only what he has seen of human nature, and what he hasn't.

    Summary

    “Gwen.” Her own brother joins the show, scowling. “Stay out of this.”

    Gwen doesn’t. “How dare someone like you,” she pokes at the direction of the knight, because if Leon thinks so lowly of Merlin, then she shan’t think highly of her once friend. “Speak to royalty like that?” Leon’s eyebrows are knitting together, which is strange, Gwen was under the impression he had found out long ago – but there is no time for that, because she needs to take it even further. “To your own Queen?” She stands tall and hopefully intimidating.

    What is a snake-woman compared to two Queens?
    In Gwen's humble opinion, a wench who doesn't stand a chance.

    Summary

    Sometimes, Merlin spoke the names of those they'd lost quietly into the dawn, allowing them to be caught in the soft net of the clouds and carried away on the wings of immortality with the breeze.

    After abandoning Camelot for half a decade, Merlin finally returns at the request of an old friend and is met with a markedly different kingdom to the one they left behind. In the years spent away from the place they had once called home, Merlin has tried to move on from the failures in their past and sever all ties with their old life in the attempt to start afresh. Upon their return, though, they discover that some foundations cannot be so easily destroyed and find themself tethered to familiar forms by both the shadows of the dead and the promise of the future. With old Camelot on the brink of collapse, Merlin realises that perhaps they have been running from everything for a little too long and, this time, they are determined to not make the same mistakes again. After all, mortality is fragile and easily broken and sometimes it takes a death to fertilise the ground for new life.
