    Summary

    In the year 2082, thirty Sorcerers who called themselves “The Pure” took over England in a violent coup, established a magical supremacy, and ruled until Uther Pendragon and his underground forces defeated them. Uther became dictator, taking charge of the country in its State of Emergency. All sorcerers tied to The Pure were publicly executed. Sorcery was declared illegal. Uther's peacekeeping Patronus force crushes rebellions. All who are suspected of practicing magic disappear or are executed. England grows increasingly restless under Uther Pendragon. Laws on sorcery have begun to change in other countries, and civil unrest stirs again in England herself.

    In this changing political landscape, Uther Pendragon’s son Arthur finds himself at University, caught between his father’s expectations and his own growing unease about his father’s policies and persecution of magic. His friend and classmate from childhood, Merlin Astur, has kept his secret as long as he's been alive. In the face of a changing world, threats to his closest friends, and an ancient Druid legend, he struggles to keep his magic hidden while protecting those dear to him.

    Summary

    The purge lasted two years in which most sorcerers were wiped out. The children of the war were taken in by Camelot as in all aspects they were innocent and in need of, what Uther deemed as, a respectable upbringing.

    But they didn't find them all. They continued to adopt sorcerers into Camelot's walls well into Arthur's reign, by which time Camelot had been established as a safe haven for all magic users.

    One warlock in particular seemed to catch Arthur's eye...

    Summary

    Merlin has a habit of keeping Arthur out of trouble, without the prince noticing of course. But when it's the warlock's turn to keep himself from harm's way he's not as on top of things as he'd like to believe, leaving the task up to those closest to him. A series of connected short stories featuring our favorites from Camelot and their mission to keep one selfless sorcerer safe.

    Summary

    “Well, what do you know, it’s Merlin Emrys, attorney at why in the world bother?”
    “See you tomorrow!” Merlin cheerfully called after Arthur.
    “No, I won’t, because you’re fired!”
    “You can’t fire your own business partner.”

     

    OR

    Arthur doesn't care about the Devil of Camelot, magic, or vigilantes.
    He just wants Merlin to show up for work.

    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

    Morgana is Merlin's tattoo artist and they are friends now. She works some magic into her art. She refuses Merlin's invite to meet the others, not wanting to venture down that road just yet.
