Extra Special Thanks to the_muppet for making this a most wonderful experience. She has put in countless hours of work to make this the best Big Bang ever.
Special thanks to my wonderful artist zephre who has made beautiful art for me again this year. I'm so glad she picked me last year and agreed to work on two stories this year. She is just awesome. All three "Books" match perfectly. She actually made me get a little emotional when I saw how beautiful the art was for these three books.
Thanks to archaeologist_d for having all the spells from the show translated for me to use and the links to the translator to make my own.
Thanks to my Beta darkstarr_x for doing so much reading this time and not killing me for doing two this year.

Artist's notes: This was a great collaboration, I really enjoyed working on a trilogy of connected illustrations. Hope you all enjoy!

Title: What Have Kings
Author: antonomasia09
Artist: aaweth_edain
Pairings/characters: Merlin & Arthur, Morgana, Morgause, Mordred, Geoffrey of Monmouth, Gaius, Balinor, Finna
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 30,828
Warnings: slavery, some graphic violence
Summary: Arthur is the king of Camelot, but his hold on power is tenuous at best due to an injury that won't properly heal. Merlin is a druid slave whose life Arthur saves on a whim. Together, they embark on a quest to reclaim the legendary sword lost by Arthur’s father, and to restore faith in the Pendragon name. Fusion with The Eagle.

Author's notes: There are a number of people that I need to thank for making this story what it is. First, my wonderful artist aaweth_edain, who was nice enough to volunteer to make beautiful illustrations for this at the last minute. She is illustrating a total of ten fanfics this year in addition to writing one of her own, and is therefore insane, but in the best way possible. I’m incredibly grateful.

I also owe undying thanks to i_canz_dragon (aka i_canz_kill_dragon on ao3 and dragonlordette on tumblr) for stepping in at the last minute to beta for me, and for calling me out on the things that needed fixing. She made this infinitely better, and I am eternally in her debt.

Finally, thanks to the_muppet for organizing this whole thing. It was a truly monumental undertaking, and I’m so proud to have been a part of it. The whole experience has been bittersweet, knowing that this was going to be the last paperlegends and the end of the Merlin era, but at the same time, it taught me a lot about writing, and allowed me to meet a lot of talented, passionate people.

Since I can, I would also like to mention that aaweth_edain will be hosting two Big Bangs next year, one of which is Merlin-themed. The links are here and here.

Artist's Notes: Hey! I hope you enjoyed these very stylistic drawings. I wanted to create a comic-like illustration, which I believe I achieved. I used ink for the most part, although sometimes I implemented the use of colored pencil (like with the grass). I hope you enjoy the art as well as the story!
