    Summary

    -Shwellenangst-
    -Noun, German-
    The fear of crossing a threshold to embark on something new.

    -----
    The raven’s cheeky smile had shifted into that of something twisted and angry. The servant stepped forth and rose his hand without thinking, and as Arthur turned, he saw the twelfth and final bandit go flying back, the vivid crack of his skull against the stone he’d been thrown against ringing in his ear.

    The blond turned back to see Merlin’s eyes fade from molten gold back to their azure blue. Merlin looked at him with pained regret on his face as he lowered his hand and took a step back.

    “I’m sorry.” The raven whispered, panic overtaking his face.

    **Takes place before the season 3 finale, but Uther is dead, the knights are all here etc. Cuz I said so.

    “I’m tired of hurting people.”

    Morgana shifted so that the man was now in her arms, holding him in an almost motherly embrace, “You don’t have to. I will.”

    Summary

    Arthur finds out about Merlin's magic, and he reacts badly. In the aftermath he's left to deal with the consequences and the pieces of a life that refuse to fit together as they used to. On his way towards understanding (and, perhaps, reconciliaton), he gains an unexpected, albeit reluctant ally – of the furred and four-legged kind. It takes more than a few words of regret to earn a warlock's forgiveness, though.

    Summary

    “Arthur.”

    “Merlin?” he said, instantly angry. He shoved himself into a sitting position, fumbling for the candle on the table by the bed, and blustered, “What on earth are you doing? It’s the middle of the night! I don’t know about you, but that’s when I sleep. Don’t you--”

    Finally managing to get the candle lit, he looked up at Merlin, fully prepared to continue his lecture. But the words died in his throat at the sight of the young servant, and he choked in the rush of panic that assaulted him. “Merlin!”
