Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance is a Merlin/Arthur story by mellacita. It was written for kinkme_merlin[1] and later expanded.[2]

Summary/Prompt: Merlin goes to retrieve his father's body and take it to Ealdor for a proper funeral. Arthur tails him.

Recs and Reviews

  • "Merlin goes to take Balinor's body back to Ealdor, and because Arthur follows him, he finds out more than he bargained for. This is yet another 'Arthur finds out' story, but I liked this one particularly because Merlin makes no attempt to be apologetic about it or deny it. Arthur reacts badly, of course, and Merlin gives him absolutely no quarter; they hash it out, and Merlin calls Arthur on his hypocrisy, and they deal with it."[3]
