Characters depicted: Merlin, Arthur, Percival, Leon, Lancelot, Gwen
Art Ratings: G - PG
Fanfic Title: Homecoming
Fic Rating: T
Word Count: 25k
Warnings: Infidelity, guite a lot of swearing, poor decision making.
Summary: When Merlin discovers that Arthur and Gwen's daughter is not actually Arthur's, he knows his options are staying and destroying Arthur's life, staying and lying to Arthur until one or both of them dies, or running the heck away. Four long years later, Morgana orders (though she would say invites) Merlin's new housemate to her wedding, and Merlin finds himself dragged back into the life he ran away from.

Artists Notes: First off, I want to Thank k_nightfox and Kitty_fic the aftercamlann mods and my dear friend for hosting this Big Bang for all of us, and helping us continue this wonderful fest in our fandom. Also, I want to say thank you to my lovely BFF adsullatta for being my art beta and enthusiastic cheerleader, I couldn't have done it without you (at all) *hugs*
Most of all, a big thank you to Eachpeachpearplum. I’ve been able to work with the lovely Peach twice before, so I was happy to be able to work with her again. I always adore her stories and this time was no different. Thank you for a wonderful, easy, and fun collab (again) I loved the pieces I was able to make for this story and enjoyed getting to partner up a third time <3
P.S. Thank you to all my Merlin chatzy and mibbit friends who, cheered me on, gave me their advice, and listened tolerantly to me prattle, whine, rant, and moan throughout my creative process, yall’ve been a great help, and I love you all, hugs!
