My brain does horrible things to me. Normal people surely don't read rants like these and suddenly find themselves craving a Merlin AU set in the universe of The Journey to the West.

Please tell me someone's already written this for me.

The [info]purimgifts stories are all up, so I can finally rec my story in full!
Lighting Candles, about Gwen, Morgana, traditions and faith. It's just lovely, sad and hopeful and a broader picture of the Merlin universe. Go read it, it's awesome.

Just a double drabble, following from 1x12, "To Kill the King." Still a bit rough but I'm sick of looking at it I'M SO AWESOME.


"I was a fool."

"Are you certain you wish me to answer that?" asked Gaius.

Uther sighed, which was answer enough.

Gaius busied himself with the tea. It was easier than trying to come to terms with Merlin's words from the day before. The boy always meant well, but....

"She is something special, isn't she?" Uther asked.

"Morgana? Ah, yes," Gaius said, finding the cups.

Why not let Arthur be king? the boy had asked.

It had started so simply, hadn't it? Back then Gaius had been able to deny them, to deny him, nothing. How could he have known how bitter the cost of Arthur's birth would be, or how dark Uther's rage?

He cannot be king yet, Gaius thought, because we are still paying the price for our mistakes, and you will suffer enough from them when the time comes.

"Gaius," Uther said, and the physician came out of his reverie.

"Ah, Sire--"

"Sit down. Quit fussing with those things and talk to me."

"Yes," Gaius said, and obeyed.

Because I have followed Uther Pendragon to the doors of Hell, and our journey is still unfinished.

Question: Did Gaius practice magic? I'm afraid I wasn't, er, paying enough attention in the pilot.

Gwen and Arthur are kind of cute, once they finally started setting them up. To be fair, so are Merlin and Arthur. And Gwen and Merlin....

Also, where is the Gaius/Uther? There must be some somewhere...right?
