Somebody That I Used to Know  
Author: Katie pelydryn77
Title: Somebody That I Used to Know
Rating: PG-13
Pairing/s: none
Character/s: Arthur, Merlin
Summary: Just your standard reveal fic
Warnings: Major Character Death
Word Count: 100 on my phone
Prompt: Argument
Author's Notes: I know this has been done a zillion times already. But hey, a hundred words. Hey, my first MCD. Hey, why do I do this to myself? (Also, I only do past tense. But this worked better in the present tense. Hey, first time for everything. Hey!) (I've tried four times to fix the tags and it doesn't work. Sorry.)

“That's a stupid argument. No one is born with magic. They choose to do evil.”

Arthur wonders why Merlin would defend sorcerers. Hadn't he, on multiple occasions, spoken out against them?

“I was born with magic.”

What game is Merlin playing at?

“I don't believe you,” Arthur scoffs, irritated.

A ball of light appears in Merlin's hands, heart-warmingly familiar, but utterly foreign.

Terror seizes Arthur's soul. How could such evil corrupt the best man he knows?

Terror. Horror. Despair. Resolution.

A schwing of his sword. Squelch. Thud.

Correction: How could evil have corrupted the best man he used to know?

Oh no! Poor Merlin. I really liked this story for showing without getting into much detail the emotions of Arthur when he discovers Merlin's secret.

Thank you for writing this!

Poor Merlin! This is a perfect example of why an angry person should always count to ten before they take action. Had Arthur thought about that blue light for a few seconds he would have realized that it had once saved his life.

Yikes! You are Cruel! My heart! I didn't expect that. MK is right will Arthur feel when he realized it was Merlin's magic that saved him...Amazing what you did with 100 words.

Sorry!!! 😛 I did label for it. 😁

Thank you! I'm not sure where this came from... Well, it came from the word argument. What would they argue about? Too bad it didn't turn out well...
