    Summary

    Queen Ygraine lives, and magic isn’t banned even if it is on thin ice. Merlin comes to Camelot, and just as before he saves Arthur’s life, but this time he doesn’t need to keep his magic hidden, or hidden from Arthur at least.
    It’s all spoiled by the arrival of the Questing Beast. Once again, Nimueh takes Ygraine’s life to save Arthur’s.
    Magic is banned. Merlin finds himself fleeing Camelot in the wake, and Arthur finds himself torn between his obligations to his father, and the safety of the man he... his dearest friend.

    Summary

    An execution was not exactly on Merlin's bucket list, wasn't even what destiny had intended for him, but it would figure that Uther Pendragon's final act would be one last strike against magic. On the bright side - because Merlin's nothing if not desperate for silver linings - he gets to learn more about magic and its still existing community than the castle he has once called home could've ever offered him. And when he finally returns, things might've just changed enough for all of them to have a chance at a better future than fate had planned.

    Arthur, for his part, really wants to catch a break, and to stop thinking about his late manservant. It should probably be less of a shock that it does not work out so neatly. Between concerning dreams, the realisation of just how wrong his father was - about nearly everything, really - and trying to deal with the loss of the person closest to him, Arthur learns a few things about making choices that aren't always easy, but right.

    Or sometimes, things have to go downhill first before they get better, and if Uther had known about the eventual outcome, he might've changed his mind, for once in his life.

    Summary

    Merlin accidentally reveals his magic to Arthur. It goes about as well as he can expect. Only Arthur is still furious about the lies between them, and refuses to let Merlin back into his role as manservant. So Merlin requests to be made a knight. If Arthur can't trust him to be a friend, at least Merlin can continue to save his life. Their friendship hangs in the balance, and it is unclear whether they are going to come through on the other side stronger than ever, or broken beyond repair.
