    Summary

    The dawn was breaking the bones of your heart like twigs. You had not expected this, the bedroom gone white, the astronomical light ...
    - Visible World by Richard Siken

    For every person that sinks magic beneath Arthur's skin like an offering, another tries to murder him, always furious when the magic harmlessly bounces off, Arthur held safe by the sacrifices of those who have died for him. 

    He wonders if they knew that he was aware of what they were doing. He spends a lot of time wondering why they would protect him. His father has them murdered and still more come, always in disguise, sometimes only brushing past him in the marketplace, a finger to his wrist, a hand to his back, the sweet rush of protection burrowing beneath his skin and promising safety. 

    He wonders how long it is until they decide to stop protecting the son of their butcher?

    Summary

    Merlin cannot remember Arthur’s face, no matter how hard he tries. It’s simply been too long, and the world has changed too much, and Merlin has changed, too.

    He happens across a psychic who shows him a vision, and he can very nearly almost see Arthur’s face, but not quite. When the vision ends, Merlin thinks that’s as close as he’ll ever get. Then, while making lunch, he suddenly finds himself somewhere impossible, somewhere that doesn’t exist anymore, sometime that doesn’t exist anymore.

    But that vision doesn’t last long, either. Until Merlin finds himself back in Camelot again. And again.

    Summary

    366 BCE Ancient Greece

    Born poor, foreign, and illegitimate, famous actor Merlin has spent his entire life on the outside looking in. Arthur Pendragon is a young and inexperienced politician desperately trying to prevent a war, leading him to turn to Merlin for help. Guinevere of Athens has secretly been publishing philosophical treatises under a male pseudonym, escaping suspicion. Morgana is a priestess at the Oracle of Delphi, one of the few women in Greece to wield political power, yet still sidelined. One day, Merlin receives a mission that he cannot refuse, one that will draw the four of them together — but could incite a war.
