Summary: Merlin and Morgana are hiding more than a few secrets. They are in love but the fates are against them at every turn. Medieval customs and conventions aside, there are still many boundaries they must overcome to be together. Set to start in the early days of Merlin series 1-2. This is what should have been.

Thanks to archaeologist_d She showed me where the resource links were for Old English and let me her look through her lists of spells from the show.
Artist's notes: Thanks to sidhe_faerie for the great collaboration and inspiration on this project. Thanks to my cheerleader and chief critic, Erin, plus L and E for looking at very early drafts and putting up with my dithering. All art was drawn with Photoshop and a Wacom tablet.
