    Summary

    Set after the Merlin Series 5 Finale "Diamond of the Day".
    Canon Compliant. In Character. Arthur Pendragon Returns.
    Cover art by Lao-Pendragon

    ------

    For many long years Merlin waited.

    For the other part of his soul, for the other half of his life. He was born to serve Arthur. So that meant he was also born to wait. Even if it took a thousand years. Even if the wait seemed never to end.

    Until one day, suddenly, it did.

    When Arthur stumbles from the Lake of Avalon 1,500 years after his death, he finds a world unlike the one he knew. Faced with the loss of everyone he loved, and the threat of impending prophecy, Arthur must learn what it means to be not just a king, but the Once and Future King. Merlin does all he can to guide him, even as he struggles to hide his love for his king, and his fear of losing him again.

    Story includes sass, banter, horseplay, & True Love.

    Summary

    It wasn't all that unusual for people to hide their daemons; Merlin, however, seems to be taking it a little far.

    Summary

    "I LIVED!"

    Merlin closed his eyes. He could have predicted Gwaine's arrival into the modern world would be bad...He hadn't anticipated Leon's to be worse. Leon and Lancelot were supposed to be easiest of them all. The crowd all turned. The knight in question was still dressed in his armor, hands risen high to signal his triumph as he looked around. Merlin awkwardly cleared his throat and pushed himself through.

    "Merlin?" He asked when he caught sight of him "You survived as well! I knew you would persevere against the trials of life as any man should. Death cannot claim us!" A woman in the crowd sobbed "Why do you look so strange?" He asked and Merlin tried to ignore the angry whispers and glares thrown their way.

    "Let's talk about it after the funeral."

    Or

    In which the time has arrived for all who have fallen to rise again. Unfortunately, they are rising in the worst ways possible.

    Summary

    Arthur watched, unable to fully comprehend the events that had seemingly just crashed and burned in front of him rather than calmly unfold. He turned to look at the other knights who only shrugged as Mordred sank lower into his seat, lips pressed into a pout as he picked at his food.

    “I…” He started and paused, taking a moment to gather his thoughts “Why do you want Merlin to like you so badly?” He finally sighed. Mordred stopped playing with his food, glancing up before looking at the door the servant in question had exited through

    “Because he’s Merlin.” He said as if that provided any sort of answer.

    Arthur didn’t deserve this. He did his best to be a good person. Maybe this was some kind of divine intervention saying he needed to up his charity game. He needed to give the lower town a bigger tax break or something. Perhaps ride out and save three more damsels than usual.

    "He has a point," Gwaine piped up as he inhaled another mead "He is Merlin."

    Or
     
    Merlin hates Mordred and Mordred is determined to put an end to that. Arthur is convinced that this child is after his man.
