    Summary

    The fifteen hundred years which have passed since the battle at Camlann have not done Merlin any favours.
    He's been left alone without his friends, without his king... and without his magic.

    All this time, Arthur has been watching over Merlin from behind the veil, desperate to find a way to help Merlin restore his magic. When Arthur finally washes up on the shores of Lake Avalon, he's in an unfamiliar world. He doesn't know where to go, but feels a strange pull. Without any other options, he decides to follow it.

    Some things might not be lost to Merlin after all...

    Summary

    There was a woman by the lake.

    She had black hair, and wore a purple dress that was vaguely familiar insomuch as Arthur paid attention to the attire of women. Her smile was kind, if a little sad, and she was dead. Skin like water, she rippled and Arthur could just make out the distorted lines of trees behind her. Merlin did not seem any more capable of seeing her than he did Arthur, which was ultimately what convinced him she was a spirit. If Merlin amongst all his powers was able to see specters Arthur would have made him stop crying by now. 
    ----------------------------------
    Watching Merlin mourn for him at the shores of Avalon, Arthur has a conversation and makes a choice. (Might add on to one day, or someone else can write a sequel if they like -- hmu so I can read it!)

    Summary


    “What makes Albion Albion?” Is what Arthur asks when Merlin finally explains the prophecy, lifetimes too late.

    “What do you mean?”

    “Camelot is gone. Essetir, Carleon- everything, every memory of the great kingdoms of our past are gone. Is there even an Albion left for me to rule anymore?”

    Merlin thinks about it. 

    “Before it was ever called Albion, there was another name for the land.” Merlin says after a while, voice sure. “And before that, another one. And now there is another. And there will be another again after.”

    “But,”

    “But,” Merlin continues, “-the name doesn’t matter. It never did. The word represents a concept- the- the land. The land that waited aeons for her king. The land that will wait aeons more.”

     I will wait aeons more, he does not say, although he is sure Arthur can see it in his face.
     

    Snapshots from the lives of the Once and Future King and his best friend through the ages, again and again and again.

    Summary

    Merlin does not stop. He doesn’t stop until there is nothing left of the tower but dust, nothing left of the island but sand. He doesn’t stop until the sky is black and the earth is scorched, and the rage in the centre of his chest has simmered down to a low flame.

    He takes in the destruction, takes in the changed landscape that has not been changed since he laid Arthur to rest here. It’s not peace that he feels, but it’s the closest he has got in a long time.


    Over a thousand years of waiting, and one split-second of slipped control. Merlin destroys the centre of the Sidhe's power, but destiny has never been this easy to fend off.

    Summary

    Arthur wasn’t supposed to be the one who lived 1500 years waiting for his Warlock to rise again in Albions greatest need. He really wasn’t, and Arthur became aware of that when he set Merlin off to Avalon in a boat bearing his red cloak and Holding Excalibur in his limp, pale hands, crossed together on his stomach. 

     

    "I'm sorry."

    Summary

    "The first thing he noticed was the light, before he even opened his eyes. The second was the air entering his body through his nose, filling him up. The third was the grass beneath him and the mist around him."

    When Arthur returns, nothing is the same. Everything he knows is gone. All but Merlin, who stands before him looking exactly the same - but at the same time, not at all.

    Summary

    The modern world has a lot of surprises for Arthur, who happens to have spent the last fifteen hundred years at the bottom of a lake. But aside from the strange new languages and not-quite-magic that everyone seems to think is normal, one thing bothers Arthur more than anything, and that is how he and his friends are remembered in history.

    Alternatively: Arthur finds his own Wikipedia page and is more than a little confused by what he finds.

    Summary

    People [are] hiding everywhere; stand still as a stone...

    Merlin has imagined telling Arthur his secret. He's thought about it countless times, hundreds upon hundreds. Thought about his fate, his destiny to serve Arthur as the Once and Future King.

    But he's never imagined this. Never thought this would happen, never thought he would take such a step.

    And now he is certain that his end has come.

    (Or, Merlin plans or rather decides spur of the moment to reveal his magic and - if necessary - die trying. Because how can he be completely, utterly certain that he is immortal, Kilgharrah? And how can he truly serve Arthur if he forever conceals an integral part of himself?)

    Summary

    “The most powerful sorcerer to walk the earth,” she mused, “and now you serve me.”

    “I serve no one but Arthur Pendragon,” he replied evenly.

    Her smirk was jubilant. “Your king is long dead, little warlock.”

    “Is that right?” He met her eyes, though he had to tilt his head to do so. Hers were fiery, glinting like the embers of a not-quite dormant fire. His remained as cold and empty as stone. “Then I guess I serve no one.”

    Summary

    After Arthur's death, Merlin makes frequent visits to the lake in the hopes that he will return. But as time drags by, he begins to lose hope not only that his friend will return, but that there will be anything good left for him to return to. And it isn't made any better by the strangely familiar voice in his head that can't be driven away by his memories...

    Also there are a few italic lines that for some reason aren't working. It's probably a html thing I screwed up but I'm not sure how to correct it so just use your imagination lol
