    Summary

    It takes them the whole weekend with a break in the middle to get through as much of Michael’s heritage as possible, but it’s eleven PM on Sunday night, and that little voice in Michael’s head reminds him that Alex still hasn’t asked about the situation with Maria.

    Not even twenty seconds later, Alex pipes up, his voice carefully neutral, and Michael wonders if the smart little shit is more telepathic than Isobel, or if he just jinxed himself.

    “So, why Maria?”

    Summary

    Because if there are places where magic survives in the 21st century, one of those places is surely Oxford. Because the fellowship of Camelot deserved happier fates than the show gave them. Because it's hard for a king to save the world, and harder for a prophecy to be broken. And because, though there are many imaginings of what happened to Merlin, surviving into a new world, I wanted to write this one.

    This work is tagged for Arthurian mythology (and related fandoms) because, as some readers may notice, I've borrowed ideas from medieval literature and modern retellings, which will be acknowledged in the respective chapters.

    Weekly updates planned for Wednesdays; begun 10 June 2020. Note as of 20 August: this fic was planned to be finished by the end of the summer; it will not be. It has grown in the telling, and while it is plotted and sketched out to its end, the regularity of updates is very likely to suffer as the academic year begins. Subscriptions recommended to interested parties.

    Summary

    I just finished a rewatch of s4, and I have a lot of feelings, chief among them being that if Arthur's claiming of Excalibur, return to Camelot, and marriage to Gwen are to inaugurate Albion's golden age, this is how it should begin.

    This fic features conversation in which Arthur exhibits canon-typical levels of misogyny and tendencies to needle Merlin, while Merlin exhibits canon-typical levels of exhaustion and anxiety. But also, I wanted to highlight Arthur's commitment to royal administration, which we see more inconsistently. I hypothesize a golden age in which Arthur Pendragon is capable of being sincere about his own emotions for longer than 0.5 seconds. Is this self-indulgent? probably. Enjoy!

    Summary

    "Great, just what he needed, something else trying to off the prat on the way home."

    Merlin, Arthur, a very large spot of prison-cell-shaped trouble, and a lot to work out. Basically, a fix-it for all of season 5.
