    Summary

    Golden, beautiful, charming, pompous Arthur, drawing everyone to him like moths to a flame. She thinks of how he is the only other person in the world who understands what it's like to be Uther Pendragon's child, to crave the approval of that looming shadow and want to break free of it in the same breath. She hates him. She hates him. She hates him.

    It’s only part of the truth, even now.

    Summary

    For better or for worse, Gwen has never been known to give up on anyone easily.

    So, when she's imprisoned in a dark tower full of mandrake roots and starts to suspect that Morgana might not be entirely lost to her, that there might still be a chance to get her back – well, what else would she do but take it?

    Summary

    Morgana crests the hill, that last hill between her and the lake of Avalon, just in time to see Merlin cast off his boat from the shore, Arthur leaning against his side: bloodied, weak, alive. In a matter of seconds, the boat crosses the border between this world and the next and enters Avalon, traveling beyond Morgana’s reach.

    Her shriek of rage flattens the woods around her for twenty feet in every direction.

    [Everybody lives, post-finale AU. Arthur/Merlin, Morgana/Gwen. Arthur reaches Avalon, and makes a choice that changes everything.]

    Summary

    There is no safety in Morgana's arms. Morgana makes her angry, and afraid beyond that, because Gwen thinks of Morgana with her unrelenting, cruel righteousness and feels something stirring in the space beneath her ribs, an echo of the fury she has buried since she came of age. She thinks of Morgana, and her tongue breaks, and her skin feels too tight and too small to contain her.

    It is Ygraine who asks Nimueh to help her conceive a child born of magic, and though she knows what will come to pass, Nimueh is powerless before Ygraine's desires.

    Decades later, that same child rules over a Camelot haunted by its past. The kingdom is besieged from without by a powerful Morgana seeking justice, and from within by its own broken laws. Gwen and Merlin stand at Arthur's side in his bitter war against his sister, but as their secrets come to light, Gwen must grapple with her gravitation towards the woman she once served. In the face of the slow dissolution of her world, Gwen finds herself confronting what she has long tried to bury in the name of loyalty: the power of grief, the force of anger, the weight of women's love and women's hunger.

    Summary

    “You do not know me?”

    The woman’s voice is thick, low and accented with a lilt Morgana has never heard before. Rough, but pleasing to the ear. It rumbles over Morgana’s skin, leaving gooseflesh in its wake.

    “I –“ Morgana hesitates, thrown off by the question. She clutches the runestone harder. As a last resort her plan was to try to send whoever was summoned back through the rift if they proved disagreeable, but this woman is even more formidable and yet somehow less threatening than Morgana could have imagined. “The spell was to find the most powerful being in creation. I didn’t know who would answer the call.”

    The woman frowns. “Me? Not her?”

    “Who?”

    OR

    In a desperate attempt to reclaim her throne, Morgana casts a dangerous summoning spell to call for aid. When the call is answered by a woman with no name and an even stranger story, the façade of vengeance and control that Morgana has cultivated so carefully begins to fall apart.
