    Summary

    Set immediately after the end of Season/Series 2, Uther finds out that Arthur has yet to “claim” his manservant. Having given the boy to his son with just such a purpose in mind, Uther decides that if Arthur isn’t going to use Merlin, he will. The act of forcing himself upon the young warlock reveals that the boy possesses certain physical anomalies that prove him a Dragonlord and grants Uther control over Merlin's gifts. Whatever Uther demands, Merlin must comply. However, the hand of destiny is a strange one and by usurping Arthur’s intended position in Merlin’s life, Uther “inherits” his son’s destiny with this act. With Merlin’s vast powers at his command he forcibly unites all the lands of Albion under his harsh and tyrannical rule, continuing to hunt down & seek to destroy all magic users he can't control…as well as any others foolish enough to oppose him. Arthur is forced into a position where he must seek unlikely allies to stop his father’s reign of terror & rescue Merlin from his enslavement under his father’s hand.

    Summary

    In a society where people with magic are considered to be dangerous, are labelled as freaks, and have their powers cut off from them, Merlin does whatever he can to survive the hard life he’s faced with. When he’s in desperate need of money, Merlin’s landlord Aredian arranges and offers a magically binding contract in which Merlin is to become a ‘companion’ to Uther Pendragon’s son, Arthur. And when Merlin feels compelled to accept it, he never would have imagined that one man could change his life so completely.

    Summary

    Set after the Merlin Series 5 Finale "Diamond of the Day".
    Canon Compliant. In Character. Arthur Pendragon Returns.
    Cover art by Lao-Pendragon

    ------

    For many long years Merlin waited.

    For the other part of his soul, for the other half of his life. He was born to serve Arthur. So that meant he was also born to wait. Even if it took a thousand years. Even if the wait seemed never to end.

    Until one day, suddenly, it did.

    When Arthur stumbles from the Lake of Avalon 1,500 years after his death, he finds a world unlike the one he knew. Faced with the loss of everyone he loved, and the threat of impending prophecy, Arthur must learn what it means to be not just a king, but the Once and Future King. Merlin does all he can to guide him, even as he struggles to hide his love for his king, and his fear of losing him again.

    Story includes sass, banter, horseplay, & True Love.
