Bring the sun back is a Merlin/Arthur story by pushdragon.
Summary: "Fanfic classic #3: Unexpected Possession of Magic. Inexplicable things keep happening around Arthur. In the end, he can only accept that he's got magic in him. Magic is a curse that needs to be stamped out, and Arthur shows himself no mercy. "
Recs and Reviews
- "The summary tells you most of what you need to know. [...] Arthur's reaction to his 'magic' (his horourable resolve) and Merlin's reaction to losing Arthur (darkest anguish) are exactly spot-on in a beautifully crafted story taking one of the staples of Merlin fandom - the magic reveal/discovery - and giving it a fantastic and well written twist."
- "This should be required reading for anyone interested in canon fics. Such unbelievably perfect dialogue. The tenderness between Arthur and Merlin is so gorgeous and so real. A perfect mix of plot and action and magic and the tropes that make us go "ooooo" all wrapped up in some of the most delightful prose I've read in ages. I found myself stopping and catching my breath over so many little turns of phrase. Oh, this story."
