Fandoms: The Magicians (TV)
13 Nov 2019
Eliot gets hit with a curse right out of Disney's collection, and when Quentin is the one to break the spell, the two of them have a long overdue conversation.
There are no spell books in Camelot. Merlin is forced to turn to a different source of information about magic.
It works, more or less.
He whispered an incantation and they both watched a green flower bud appear in her palm. Slowly it grew larger and changed from green to yellow to a red so dark it looked as though the flower had been dipped in blood. As the petals spread and the bud bloomed, a small, violet butterfly no bigger than a coin came from the middle of it, hovering over Morgana’s hand.
“Magic can be beautiful,” Merlin whispered as Morgana stared at the butterfly. It rose to a point where it was right in front of her face, hovered there for a moment, then moved again to perch on the end of her nose, its wings fluttering softly. From where he sat in front of her Merlin chuckled. “It has a mind of its own, magic.”
Morgana laughed softly as the butterfly flew from her nose and around her head before moving towards the window, vanishing into the night as it flew through the broken glass.
"Really?" Arthur asked, brushing the dirt off of him as he glowered at the man. "Again? I had it under control - and we aren't allies!" He added heatedly. Balinor shrugged, looking nonplussed by Arthur's anger as he stroked the dragon's wing.
"I know." Balinor said simply. "But I promised my son I wouldn't let you die."
"Your...You have a son?" Arthur demanded. Again, Balinor shrugged. "Why does your son...? Nevermind. Don't save me again!" He snapped, pointing a finger at the man. He turned to stalk back to the horse only for a column of fire to blow past him. The prince jumped. He spun around to tell the man off again but immediately noticed one of the remaining bandits who had been slowly creeping towards him burnt to a crisp. He looked back at Balinor.
Balinor lives. Arthur will do pretty much anything to get the man to stop saving his life.
