    Summary

    Merlin has a habit of keeping Arthur out of trouble, without the prince noticing of course. But when it's the warlock's turn to keep himself from harm's way he's not as on top of things as he'd like to believe, leaving the task up to those closest to him. A series of short stories featuring our favorites from Camelot and their mission to keep one selfless sorcerer safe at any cost.

    Summary

    *******************

     

    “No.” He whispered fiercely. “I know how to release it from within Merlin's body. We will free him before it comes to that. It was just a dream.” It had to just be a dream. That couldn’t be their ending after everything.

     

    Morgana stared him in the eyes, her face hardening. Tears glistened on her cheeks, but she was deadly serious as she shook her head in defeat. “No, Arthur. If there is one thing you need to know about my visions, it’s that my dreams always, always come true.”

     

     

    ********************

     

    As only second in line for the throne, Arthur should have expected to one day be sent off to marry a princess far away. He hadn't expected it. Nor had he expected to be betrayed and imprisoned by an evil sorcerer along the way. Even less did he expect to meet someone there who would change his life forever.

    As for Merlin, he never thought there was anything other than this life. This prison. This ruin that was his magic. It only took one person to show him there was something more worth fighting for.

    But at what cost?

    Summary

    Of all the ways Arthur and the knights could've found out about his magic, Merlin hadn't thought it'd be due to a sparrow. There will be a happy ending, but it's gonna take a while.

    "Arthur was terrified when he saw Merlin make up his mind to jump. He put on a burst of speed, willing his body to give everything he had so he could just-reach out and….He crashed at full speed into the warlock, knocking them both out of breath, but most importantly, far away from the edge of the ravine. Merlin fought him, kicking and clawing for escape, but it was clear that whatever had fueled him for so long was gone, and eventually the kicking and punching and shouting was gone, and Merlin wept in Arthur’s arms, trembling hard.

    “Sorry, so sorry, so so sorry. ‘M so sorry, Arthur,” he sobbed desperately, and Arthur held him close, heart racing and eyes wet. “I’m so sorry, please don’t burn me. I’m so sorry. I didn’ mean to, I was born with it.” Merlin cried, and Arthur shushed him gently."

    A huge thanks to the remarkable artists who have been generous enough to bless me with their work. Once I manage to figure out how to insert it, it will be up. Thank you xoxo

    Summary

    The Dorocha was only the beginning.

    ***

    Merlin was supposed to be riding back to Camelot with Lancelot. Merlin was supposed to be safe. Which is why Arthur can't quite comprehend it when Merlin appears at the Isle of the Blessed just as Arthur is readying himself for sacrifice, blasts Arthur out of the way, and walks through the veil between the worlds.
