------------------------------
A thousand years he waited. A thousand years of hopes smashed, of dreams turning into nightmares, of loneliness and isolation.

He tried taking lovers. He tried friends and puppies and crowds. But they all faded away to ash, growing old and dying and leaving Merlin alone again. Always alone.

Then it was madness and drowning and mayhem, agony and blood and an aching numbness that he tried to alleviate with pain or pleasure.

He tried begging the gods for release, cursing them with retribution, but nothing worked.

He gave up the maybes, accepted the truth.

Arthur was never coming back.
