    Summary

    When Arthur discovered Merlin’s magic, he thought it was the last of Merlin’s mysteries. Looking back at all the strange excuses, secret trips out of the castle, and odd bits of wisdom on subjects he was meant to know nothing about, ‘sorcerer’ seemed to explain all of it.

    ...but the secret trips didn’t end after Arthur lifted the magic ban, and neither did the excuses.

    (AKA, the one where Merlin puts together an illegal necromancy ring, and everyone except Arthur is in on it.)

    Summary

    It was supposed to be a normal hunt. It was supposed to be a normal hunt.

    It was supposed to be this: they get out of the castle so Arthur can be less of a prat, the knights have that weird banter that they always do where it’s ‘we can make fun of him but if anyone else tries, you will be eviscerated,’ and Merlin gets to enjoy being in the woods because it’s nice outside and he doesn’t actually have to do that much. They only tend to hunt small things like rabbits and birds anyway.

    It was not supposed to be most of the knights having to stay behind for various reasons, including Gwaine who somehow got swept into helping Leon with a council thing.

    It was not supposed to be just him, Arthur, and three random knights.

    It was not supposed to end like this.
