    Summary

    Part 2 of 4, of my 'How I think Merlin should have ended series.' Part 1 is Alchemy. This is set canon era, from the beginning of season 3, Uther is lost without Morgana and is being more repressive than ever towards magical people. Arthur is being forced to do all the dirty work, which is causing a radical shift in his thinking. Morgause offers a truce, lift the ban on magic and Uther's loving ward will be returned to him. Uther is not interested in peace, but Arthur is. Can Morgana change Arthur's stance on magic? Will Uther's true character be revealed to Arthur? Can it all have turned out differently? Has Morgana joined Morgause's cause or is she genuinely trying to help Arthur?
    Sympathetic to the oppressed.
    FEMSLASH, Morgana/ Morgause, Arthur/ Morgana, some abusive Uther/ Morgana.
    There is also a fleshing out of what the Old Religion actually is.
    Mostly Morgana or Arthur POV.
    You don't have to read Alchemy (Part 1), except the last chapter, 13- Epilogue- that is the beginning of the divergence. Also: Alvarr and Mordred were rescued by Morgause after The Witch's Quickening. The notes at the end of this chapter will tell you everything vital from Alchemy that you need to know to read Part 2.

    Summary

    This power should not be.
    It is as simple as that. Until it called to me, I had only ever heard whispers of this magic, in the mountains where life fled. They say where it flows freely, mammals inevitably fade.
    And so I fear all in this fair country will hear its deadly siren song, if I do not act. Is their fate already sealed, as mine is? It hardly bears contemplating.
    I must draw it back down here, to return it to the earth in this sacred place. If nothing else it is better to try, than to remain and witness the horrors it may unleash.
    Should this message survive, and any to read it - forgive what I have done here. I can see no other course.

     

     

    - from the last writings of High Mage Macquet, recovered by Sedgewick of the River Tribes

    Summary

    Intertwined by fate, Viktor and Yuuri must work together to follow a series of gruesome visions to protect the fragile peace between their two countries, stop a dark power from rising, and see if they can overcome the specter of their pasts.

    Technically a crossover, but if you don't know the Protector of the Small series this can just be read as a fantasy AU.

    Summary

    Asami's never gone on a quest in her life. Never even wanted to. Honest. That's why she decided to become an Alchemist: brewing potions to sell to weary travelers in exchange for coin and stories of the world outside her town's walls.

    Then, one day, her friends come to her with a venture that's too good to be true. Just go harvest some herbs from the forest in the next Duchy over. All she needs to do is tell them what to pick. What could possibly go wrong? After all, all of them are seasoned adventurers with years of experience fighting monsters she's only seen in books.

    And maybe she'll finally get to talk to that Ranger they're always hanging around with.

    Korra.

    Summary

    Everyone wonders, why did the United State’s most wanted criminal of the 20th century turn himself in?
    I’ll tell you. For the price of a Minotaur's horn, for a year and a day's penance, for a lie from a priest, and a truth from a senator’s lips. If you can give me Will’s voice and have him sing me a serenade one last time… Ah, but that’s impossible, isn’t it?
    I’ll let you have my tales for free just this once, because no tale is truer or worthier than mine.
    And it all began, when I left Camp Half-Blood when I was seventeen.

    (The life story of Nico do Angelo.)

    Summary

    When Sorey decided to leave his home village of Elysia, he expected a few things. Meet new people, see all the places he read about in his grandfather's books, maybe even get mugged by a bandit or something.

    What he wasn't expecting was to be teamed up with the worlds most unlikely group of people to ever meet and race against the clock to collect the Elemental Iris Gems before the self-proclaimed Lord of Calamity can use them to thrust the world into darkness.

    Oh, and there's also a dragon trying to eat them.

    Summary

    John, a rebellious mortal hunted by a tyrannical and merciless king, finds refuge in the form of the great fairy Smitius. When he learns that the planet he walks upon is dying with each passing second, he makes the decision to help the fairy save their world by travelling to the end of the earth to bargain with the Gods. With the help of an ex-assassin, an isolated mage, a forgotten knight and the Elven King himself, saving Erestia may just be possible- but with King Wilfor on his tail, their chances of succeeding are only running thinner.

    Even as the life and magic of Erestia slowly drains, John still has hope- in their journey, in himself, and in Smitty. It will work, John knows, because all life would perish if it didn't.

    "It was exactly then, John decided, that as long as there was a beating within his chest, Erestia would live to see another day."
