    Summary

    It is the first time that Merlin has heard Arthur’s name spoken aloud since he died. He shuts his eyes. “How can this be it?”

    “It hasn’t ended,” Gaius says. He clasps Merlin’s hands. “Not yet.”

    (After Arthur’s death, Merlin lives a life. A very long life, indeed.)

    Summary

    Shiro spends his last day on Earth with his family.

    They stopped, and Shiro remembers that they were next to the persimmon tree, thick with leaves and strange green blossoms. Shiro thought maybe he had said something bad—maybe he wasn’t supposed to be an astronaut. But his mom just reached over and took him from his dad, settling him on her hip.

    “Shiro,” she said again, warm this time instead of scolding. “Takashi. You can be whatever you want to be.”

    His dad nodded and ruffled blunt front of his bowl cut. “Wherever you want to go, even if you want to go all the way to outer space, we’ll be with you, okay? Every step of the way.”

    "Want to talk about it?" said Keith eventually, without looking round.

    "Not really," Shiro said.

    Summary

    To end the war they inherited, Keith marries the King he lead an army against.

    “You know, we met once,” the king continues, voice closer, and Keith almost turns. They met many times on the field—but then the king clarifies with a single word. “Before.”

    Before he was a king. Maybe before he was a general. Keith has traced his rise like the growth of a seed he planted in clay and never expected to see again for how poorly he sowed it. None of this would have been possible without Keith—not the war, not a line soldier's battlefield promotion, not the end of it all, tied up so neatly by all Keith’s best mistakes. Not the killing, either. The king is right about that much, at least.

    Summary

    But Shiro doesn’t bring the sun, because that’s Keith. Keith is the one who brings warmth, hidden in the gentleness of his eyes and the curve of his cheekbones. The slope of his smile sets Shiro on fire.

    Shiro doesn’t do that. Shiro brings clouds and shadows and rain that’s so fucking cold it seeps into his bones every day and turns them to ice, and it feels like he’s always just one misstep away from shattering against the ground.

    God, how he wants to shatter.

     

    In which Shiro and Keith come home from the war and help each other rebuild. Picks up right after Season 7.
