Notes: Yes, it's back!

I know I abandoned it, and I was all but ready to give up on it myself, but I finally got myself to just write the last the damn bit, get it beta'd, and post it! :D

I'm getting back to all the things I've abandoned over the years, slowly, working my way backwards. For now it's Lineage, Euphoria, and my old Tarot Project! Later, I will also bring in my older fics, older fandoms, and my original fiction into my main focus as well.

Important notes:

1.) This story is still a post-S1 AU, but draws heavily on elements of S2 and S3 (basically all the events of those seasons, minus the evil!Morgana and Arthur/Gwen story archs, and compressed into one year)

2.) In light of Merlin's father's identity being revealed, the earlier chapters have been edited to fit that in.

Now - to the story!

Chapter 02: In So Few Words )

Title: Black Friday

Rating: PG

Summary: Only Americans would have a holiday dedicated to shopping. They weren't even Yanks, and yet somehow Merlin still got dragged along for this. They were so going to pay for this...

Pairing: Arthur/Merlin, Gwen/Morgana

Warnings: None

Beta: None

Notes: Oh, come on, Americans - you know you wanted to. ;)

For Brits And Other Non-Yanks Who Don't Know What I'm Talking About: the day after Thanksgiving in America has always marked the start of Christmas shopping, and a time when revenue was almost guaranteed to be highly profitable for retailers. They nicknamed this Black Friday - for the color profits used to be labeled in, as opposed to the red of lost margins - and the consumer population caught onto this, and thought it was funny, and started shopping on this day more and more for lack of anything better to do. The stores caught onto this, and started making more deals on this day, which the people latched onto more, which made the companies more interested, and well...all this bouncing off each other has resulted in a holiday dedicated to shopping. It's one step away from getting government recognition, and if it helps give a little boost to the economy that many people are hoping for, then it probably will get government recognition.

Only in America will you get a holiday dedicated to consumerism on the day after a holiday created to celebrate the nation's original anti-materialists.

*eyeroll*

Title: Lineage, Chapter 1: A Season's Pass

Rating: PG-13 (for now)

Summary: 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.

Pairing: Arthur/Merlin

Warnings: mentions of violence, swearing, some explicit sex (all later chapters)

Episode warnings: Makes hints to all of Season 1 and some of Season 2

Beta: [livejournal.com profile] jusmine984

Notes:
On archery and its equipment: crossbows – which Arthur is seen using – were used by soldiers because they were easy to learn how to use and aim with, even though they couldn’t fire many arrows at once, and didn’t have much force behind them. Shortbows had more force behind them, and can fire more arrows in the same span of time in the hands of an expert. And longbows...well, didn’t really exist in Europe at the time, but as anachronistic as the show can be stretched…you couldn’t fire as many arrows so fast out of a longbow, but they had enough force to pierce armor. In other words, Arthur is apparently a terrible archer in canon. ^_^ Anyone else absolutely love that?

Notes: Something I thought I should clear up - these are not chapters of a fic - they are parts of a massive one-shot. It's split into four parts due to size, and across four days because formatting on LJ is a bitch and I've got a castle-load of homework due soon.

Notes: Written for Round 1 of the[livejournal.com profile] merlincapficschallenge on LiveJournal. I picked prompts 16, 50, and 64 of the original prompt table.

This fic was not supposed to be this freakin' long, but it blew up on me, and I'm honestly not really sure how it happened.
