    Summary

    The world was strange. There was a time where almost every other person had some sort of magical ability. Whether it was making toys hover through the air or helping bathwater to stay warm longer. But some had abilities that scared those without. Their vibrant colored hair showed the extent of their powers. While most people would have a few streaks here and there, or color that was only at their nape, it was common knowledge that they held some innate skill with magic. There were many who didn’t know what their ability was, but they held a colored streak that would fade as they grew older. It tended to manifest in many in their adolescence; their magical abilities. If they studied to try to figure out what their ability was, if they didn’t know, then their hair would brighten the closer they got to figuring it out. Once their color settled, their eyes would glow a brilliant gold color when they applied their magic. It was breathtaking to behold.

    Summary

    "My name’s Gon.” He said.

    “Gon.” Killua repeated, closing his eyes. He committed the name to memory quickly and tired not to smile at how the name sounds right in his own mouth, and settled in his mind like a missing puzzle piece. He let a sly smile slide over his features as he gave the young prince a dark look. “I’m going to kill you.” He stated, matter of factly. Gon stuck out his tongue with a wink.

    “I’d like to see you try!”
    ***
    Gon is a prince of a small kingdom, destined to take over one day. Although his parents’ passed away when he was young, he isn’t crowned just yet.

    The Royal Council watch over the kingdom while Gon undergoes his training and lessons to become King. All the while, he is under instructions to get closer to his appointed Royal Knights.

    Killua is from a family of assassins. The Zoldycks get an anonymous job to kill the prince and Silva sends Killua.

    Summary

    Fifteen hundred years after Camlann, Arthur returns and Merlin is there to welcome him. Merlin has no idea why he's back, no idea if it's pure chance, or destiny, or something even greater -
    All he knows is that the one thing he has spent fifteen hundred years waiting for is finally happening... and he can't do this.

    ---

    “Years ago, you insisted on seeing the good in me before anyone else saw it -- insisted on seeing the good in me before even I, myself, saw it. And now--
    -- Now, Merlin, you won’t even look me in the eye. So, please, I am begging you. Tell me, Merlin. Tell me what’s changed.”

    Summary

    There was only one slave in all of Camelot. One young man who was discovered to be a holder of magic, had given that specific punishment. He was the Prince's own manservant. The King was mortified and embarrassed to have been the one who gave the warlock a position so close to the throne. He elected that the man should be made into an example. One so poignant that no other warlock would dare pull a similar stunt.

    Summary

    Arthur is confused, very upset, and nothing is alright anymore, thank you very much.

    Because you see, despite the image that he tries to present—emphasis on the word ‘try’, there, according to his knights—he does care an awful lot about his people, especially his one particular person that happens to be able to say an awful lot without saying anything.

    Merlin. He’s talking about Merlin, in case you hadn’t noticed.

    Summary

    Arthur, Merlin, and the Knights of the Round Table must travel to the Isle of Mona, invited by the eccentric royal family to help teach Arthur about governing a kingdom where magic is a free practice. As a condition of Morgana's surrender the ban was lifted in Camelot and Arthur asked Merlin to learn magic so he had someone he could trust to help him govern. Merlin has been playing the struggling apprentice for months, learning everything he can and pretending not to already know it all.
    However, when they land in Mona, all the magic users recognize Emrys and treat him as such. Merlin is forced to confess all to his king and the knights, who agree that until the treaty is signed and they return home, they are going to have to act as if this is all normal. Cue shenanigans, tournaments, worshipers, and more secrets than Arthur knows how to deal with.
    The story is a slow burn and a lot is going on, Merlin is polyamorous and Arthur decides he can live with that. This is my first long story, I will try to update often, let me know how I am doing!
