Author's Notes: Canon AU. Morgana's POV.
Turn Away and Slam the Door
Here I am, in another decrepit castle, the darkness of its abandoned halls seeping into my soul.
Behind an ancient mirror's cobwebs I glimpse who I once was. The beautiful lady in silks. The unforgiving Queen. The witch in a woodland hovel. Those women seem like single-minded strangers now, with limited lives that only ever revolved around Camelot's throne.
I drop the mirror. It shatters on the cold stone floor.
There is a much wider world out there, where my magic may thrive, and Aithusa be healed.
This is me, walking away.
Looking for joy and a new, fulfilling life.
