Prompt: 128, Illusion

Merlin is sweet natured, kind hearted, clumsy and soft. It’s not a lie but there is a seldom seen dark depth to him. Those that experience it don’t survive long enough to share his secrets. Corpses don’t tell tales.

He shows Camelot and its King what they need to see but death and destruction are at his core, warring with a softer spirit that is hardening with each new battle.

Merlin isn’t sure where he’s headed but it’s sure to be a future filled with violence and death, one he will meet with Arthur, angry magic crackling, waiting to strike.

Nothing more than a feeling

Prompt: 128. Illusion
Author's Notes: Thanks to the lovely derenai for the beta. Vaguely inspired by the song "Juste une illusion" from Jean-Louis Aubert.

It started a few years after Arthur’s death. That sensation, that feeling that prodded Merlin to move, to go somewhere else. He always followed it, convinced that it would lead him to Arthur.

The years passed by and he never found Arthur. Though, he always went where his feelings were guiding him.

He knew it was nothing more than an illusion. A way for his subconscious to give his endless life a meaning.

There was also that foolish hope of finally finding Arthur that kept him moving, travelling all around the country, searching for a place… That kept him alive.
