    Summary

    "You... assisted me in my fight against the bandits. For that, you have my thanks. I'm an honorable man and I repay my debts. Leave now and I will not hunt you."

    "Assisted? I'm pretty sure I saved your life."

    "I had the situation perfec- Are you trying to make me reconsider letting you go?"

    It was supposed to be a one time thing. Arthur let the sorcerer run off with his life in return for him saving Arthur's. He had never expected to see the boy again, especially not only two days later in Gaius's chambers.

    Summary

    “Well, I’ll be damned!” The old man crowed and tugged Merlin closer “How have you not seen it, Uther? The resemblance is uncanny!” He beamed, ruffling the servant’s hair “Sorry, son. You look like an old friend of ours. Good ole’ Balinor. A member of court before Uther chased him away.” The man snorted and Arthur’s gaze jerked up.

    “Balinor?” He asked sharply and turned where his father was taking a sip of his wine “The dragonlord?”

    OR

    An old friend of Uther’s drops by and notices Merlin looks familiar. Arthur remembers Merlin’s reaction to Balinor’s death and puts the pieces together.

    Summary

    "You...Are Emrys?" Arthur asked slowly. He turned to look back at Merlin who only offered a bright smile in return. It wasn't comforting. In fact, Arthur was fairly certain it was the same smile he gave when he returned Arthur's dirty laundry and tried to insist he washed it.

    "I am." The man nodded solemnly "Though you may call me Alator."

    Arthur had to fight to keep his face completely blank. Right. Fine. Okay. He held up a finger before gesturing Mordred a bit closer. The knight shuffled to his side, leaning in so he could hear when Arthur started whispering.

    "What did this prophecy you keep mentioning say again?" He asked and when Mordred opened his mouth, held up a hand. "About me and Emrys."

    "Oh," Mordred said and shrugged "You fall in love with him."

    Arthur slowly turned back to Alator. Then back to Mordred.

    "...are you sure?"

    Or

    Alator lives. This sets off a series of events that include: Mordred coming forward as a druid, Arthur learning of the existence of Emrys, Merlin asking Alator to please pretend to be Emrys, Alator agreeing, and Mordred deciding the best revenge is convincing Arthur that he is destined to fall in love with a man older than his father.
