    Summary

    Merlin sighs. "After your...announcement," he explains, "your father decided he needed a bit more information. Which is apparently where I come in. I'm sort of like his gay tutor, it's hard to explain."

    Summary

    The dreams begin five days after Merlin’s execution.

     

    The dreams— colors and shapes made from the wreckages of Arthur’s memories, as meaningless as words like loyalty and friendship— begin with the gentle questioning of something uncertain of its own right to exist.

    And Arthur answers the question the only way he can— with his mind turned away from the thoughts that filled him at night, facing the morning with nothing more than a frown and a promise not to think of his dream again.

    There are more important things to face, anyway. Whatever his father has planned each day, it leaves no room for Arthur to think of petty things like a moment of a bad dream.

    <>

    Merlin's a traitor. Merlin's a sorcerer. Merlin's dead and no longer a problem.

    Or, at least, he would be-- if he hadn't shifted into Arthur's dreams instead. Not a ghost but still not quite there, Merlin fills the place in Arthur's head at night. At first, Arthur does all he can to ignore it. Eventually, though, he has no choice but to speak with the man who broke his trust.

    Bittersweet and angsty and beautifully crafted, with the perfect ending in the nick of time.

    Summary

    You can determine the measure of a man by observing how he treats his lessers, except that, to Arthur, Merlin has (almost) never been his lesser, and Merlin himself (almost) never saw them as anything other than equals. As their destinies steadily intertwine, both young men realize it is more than just fate that ties them together.

    A series of firsts and defining moments for Merlin and Arthur...
