PG-13 (for now)
Thanks to his magic, Merlin always knew he had a weird heritage that his mother did not liking talking about. What he didn't expect was to find out she was a princess of the kingdom of Dyfed - making him heir to the throne. This changed...everything.
mentions of violence, swearing, some explicit sex (all later chapters)
113 (So first season, basically)Beta: jusmine984 Notes:
kinkme_merlin made me do it! This was a response to this
prompt on kinkme_merlin
: 'Arthur/Merlin. Merlin's mother is the daughter of the King of Demetia (Dyved, kingdom in southern Wales). When Merlin's true heritage comes to light, everything changes.
' And, well, with the homework load I have, the logical response was, of course, to ignore and go write fic. ^_^
Also, this is why I used Carmarthen as the capital of Dyfed, and Merlin’s birthplace: Merlin’s Welsh name Myrddin is usually attributed to being a mistaken derivation of Moridunum – the Roman name for Carmarthen, or rather, the Roman fort there. As such, Carmarthen (by its Welsh name, not the Roman one) is often attributed as Mryddin’s birthplace – who, of course, later evolved into Merlin.ETA:
In light of us discovering Merlin's father's identity, I've made some minor edits to reflect that. ( Prologue )
