- Merlin (TV) (3)
Merlin, Leon, Gwaine, Morgana, Gaius, Gwen, and Lancelot wake up in a strange place, lost in a mist and fog. They find Arthur, kneeling with his great golden wings spread out behind him, froze completely in thick ice. It is revealed that during the battle between Arthur and Morgana triggered ancient spell. They are now trapped in Arthur's mind, watching the King's memories, until they understand who he really is. But the past, especially Arthur's, is not a pretty one to behold.
"It's what he wants, right?" Merlin whispered. He stood, his hand slipping away from Arthur's cold frozen statue and immediately wishing to go back. The warlock crept forward, the horrid screeches still calling to them from behind the tall wooden door, "We can't leave until the spell is complete, can we? I- I will always stand by Arthur's side. Nothing I see could change that."
Gaius stared at Merlin, a thousand worries and thoughts whirling behind his eyes.
"Arthur has been through a lot of pain in his life. Can you bear to witness that? I'm not sure I can. Not again," the physician's voice cracked guiltily.
"Arthur deserves to be seen. No matter how ugly the past is, I will not deny him that," Merlin replied.
- Part 2 of No Time To Die
Merlin defeated the creature easily. He turned away from his fallen foe and back to the boulder blockade he'd trapped Arthur behind. Too late, Merlin saw the King had found his own way out. He had seen... everything.
Arthur didn't look angry. He didn't even seem surprised. Just... hurt. Merlin froze when he saw that Arthur was crying. The King hadn't seemed to notice it yet, his eyes lost and face void of emotion, but tear tracks lined his dust-coated cheeks. Arthur didn't cry. It was a rule he rarely disobeyed, his motto, "No man is worth your tears." It took Merlin a second to understand, but he wasn't angry... he was heartbroken.
Arthur discovers Merlin's magic. Realising that nearly everyone close to him has betrayed him, Arthur blames himself and obsesses over being a perfect king. He finally taps into his potential, follows his beliefs, and becomes the man that he was meant to be. Arthur also discovers he's not what he thought he was and begins keeping secrets of his own. Meanwhile, Merlin repents for his mistakes and learns about Arthur's past. What is Arthur hiding? Can Merlin win back Arthur's trust? Who and what is Arthur Pendragon, really?

- Part 1 of No Time To Die
“I’m sorry. Oh my god, I’m so sorry! I love you so much, Arthur. You know I love you. I’m so sorry! I- I- I didn’t mean to do that!”
Arthur turned and stared at her. Her mascara ran down her face and her lips trembled. He hesitated then held her reaching hand and pulled her to his chest. She wrapped herself around him, shaking and heaving wet cries.
“Hey, it’s ok… It’s not that big of a deal, Guinevere. It’s ok.”
The blood is rare and sweet as cherry wine.
Long haul Remus story. Book two covers his second year.
The Marauders are growing even closer but how are things going to change once they reveal they know his deepest secret? Navigating through the change of becoming a teenager, Remus begins to think he might have another secret, one that is very confusing to figure out for a young wizard in the 70s.
The world of Shifting Lines will eventually include Wolfstar. Mostly canon with a few exceptions.
There should be more tags but I don't want there to be a wall so I tried keep it short. I took some of the fluffier tags out & mostly kept in the darker ones as warnings. I promise there is more than angst in this.
(Don't really need to read the 1st before this I think)
I also want to make it clear I do not agree with Rowling's views. This is a very pro-LGBT+ series, there will be a lot of LGBT+ characters once they're older. That being said, the general wizarding society in this is very anti-LGBT+. I will keep the hate to a minimum, but it will be a story where the characters are afraid to/cannot come out publicly.
