    Summary

    Canon Backstory slightly adjusted.

    The Druids recognized Merlin as the prophesized Emrys when he was still a very small child, and have serious expectations for the boy. Merlin's father comes back to Ealdor after they track him down and tell him about his son's destiny. Balinor tries his best to give his son the Lord's upbringing and education that he had as a boy, feeling that Merlin deserves it even if the Druids have the wrong kid. It turns out Balinor was right to fear the attention he would bring to Ealdor. When he goes to Camelot, Merlin fully expects to become an apprentice physician and does not pretend to be a simpleton or accept people thinking that he is one because of this change in his upbringing. Arthur isn't blind, but he doesn't pay much attention to Merlin's quirks until King Bayard's visit.

    Summary

    Magic has been outlawed in Camelot since before Arthur was born, and he grew up to lessons teaching it as something to be feared, something of pure evil. The notion had never sat right with Arthur, and there were days where he swore there was someone, or something, following and guiding his every step, all the way back to his earliest memories. Despite this, Uther was his father, his King, and he had no cause to doubt him. Surely he was imagining things, surely this feeling of ‘other’ was just the mindless daydreams of a child who never really had a childhood.

    When the sorceress Morgause revealed to him the vision of his dead mother, who exposed a secret long since buried, Arthur’s faith in everything he had made himself believe began to crumble.

    Now the King is dead, Arthur’s taken up the throne, and he’s finally begun to question just how evil magic truly is. It had taken his mother’s life, but it had brought him into this world in turn. Magic had given him life, and maybe a little something more…was that such an evil thing?

    With the help of a certain all-powerful warlock, can the young King of Camelot discover a new path, bring on a new age, and finally, truly unite the land of Albion?
