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!

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: kinkme_merlin made me do it! This was a response to this prompt on [info]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.
