Summary: Merlin's dreams have always fuelled his art, but they've always been abstract and removed from reality. Soon after he meets Gwaine, he starts to see vivid images of a past full of death and magic and love for a King who was ripped from him. Things only escalate further when he spends a weekend in the country with Gwaine and meets his group of friends, which includes aristocrat and It Boy, Arthur Pendragon. Merlin soon realises that no matter how hard you try, one thing is certain, you can't fuck with destiny.
Author Notes: I could not have finished this without the help of my wonderful cheerleaders: hermette, lolafeist and ella_bane who were there right from the start enabling me, encouraging me and enthusiastically cheering me on. This story is for you, ladies. My amazing betas kick_flaw, nympha_alba and lemniciate (who also Britpicked) did absolutely stellar jobs and made the whole process such a pleasure. Also veronamay for helping me shape the plot. ♥
goss did such an amazing job with the art for this, I'm absolutely floored. We've embedded the art through the story, but please do give her love on her masterpost here.
