Rating: PG for brief femslash allusions
Fandom: Merlin

Disclaimer: I do not own Merlin (BBC), nor do I own ienablu's fics: untitled Arthur/Merlin, untitled Arthur/Merlin, and untitled Morgause/Morgana.

They search for the inevitable confrontation,
worried, to save Camelot.

leading nowhere, stop
they go

to kill, a good match
like a condemnation
“He will kill you.”
“If you’re not going to help me--“
take an immediate step towards the door,
let’s go

to use magic,
feel instinct


they kiss their last
convince everyone it was perfect
lords and ladies
all stretches feast to celebrate, to slip away

golden red
hard, desperate
an underlying tension between

not all a happy ending;
all the opportunities
going, going to change,
like a goodbye


pulses drawn with worry will resolve

a kiss to her temple
tame poison is an antidote
She waits up, closer
“Can you remember?”

she can see
fractures grow in her

candles flicker, shrill vases shatter
a placating hand on her shoulder
glowing gold a whirlwind crashes
her mouth on Morgana’s, fingers in her hair
burning magic
messy glowing magic everywhere she can reach,
she wants this

a flash
and farther still

she loves Her painfully, stop

sorcerer, protectively in front
gold is a raw spell

“You’re going to kill her.”
“You’re going to kill him.”
far too young and far too old

“Leave, and never return.”
“I’m trying.”
gold eyes burn alive
she presses a long, desperate kiss
still-warm lips
mood: calmcalm

This is lovely! I especially love the messy glowing magic everywhere she can reach,, it feels so desperate and true.

I keep trying to find a way to respond to this, but I keep ending up pointing at the screen and making dolphin noises.

This is stunning. Utterly and completely stunning, and beautiful, and painful, and evocative, and I have no idea how the hell you got that out of my writing, but I am preening over the fact that I somehow had something to do with this.

she loves Her painfully, stop
I keep coming back to this line, because just... I am seriously just making hand gestures, because I am do not have words for how perfect this is.

And I would end up parroting the entire thing back to you if I were to flail over every line that I loved (though I am going to another special mention to she can see // fractures grow in her // magic because the way you spaced it out is perfect and leaves it up to interpretation and I've read it five times already and I read it differently each time and how are you so wonderful?) and just... ldksahfasdhflasdhflasdhflkasdhf sadhfldsakhfasdhflashdfhasd flasdhfasdfasd this is wonderful.

*blushes* Thank you so much! Your writing was so fascinating and beautiful and I kept seeing this theme of unresolved conflict, so I just sort of went with it and...this happened!

sldjfldf That is actually one of my favorite lines! I wasn't sure if anyone else actually was going to get anything out of it, but I am a huge fan of spiritual undertones in poetry and also I felt extremely clever because to me the lines with the "stop" at the end were like telegrams. I don't know, all of this was kind of just in my head.

Okay yay, you got that too! Well, got it in the sense that it really can be any way you want it to be depending on how you read it (I love that about poetry), so YAAAY. 8)
