Summary: After defeating Cenred's forces and an army of the dead in the siege during the Tears of Uther Pendragon, Arthur has a traitor to identify, a city to rebuild, and—of course—a manservant to order around. All of which would be much easier to accomplish if Gaius would give him a straight answer about the magical staff found in the burial vaults, Merlin was not yanking Morgana into alcoves, and if Gwen would call him by his given name. When a druid insists on meeting with him, Arthur is forced to confront the fact that he cannot hide from magic.

Notes: Arthur Pendragon is one of my favorite fictional characters of all time and this is the most fun I had reading a Merlin story ever. I wish the show went this direction as this story. The backstory was done so well my eyes were tearing up at parts especially Morgause section.
