Changing the fate
Morgane had never felt so alone. Arthur is dead, and their son Mordred too. They have killed each other. And all of this was her fault ! She had let Morgause raised her son and she had made of him a monster. And Morgane don't had even tried to stop her. The words her son had told her before he died were true. She had failed to be a mother, as much as she had failed Arthur. Thinking of him make her heart break. She had wanted always for him to be happy. But his wedding was an error even from the beginning. Guinievre had always loved Lancelot. She had accepted to marry Arthur because it was her duty, not for love. And it was their downfall.
Morgane can't help herself but felt some anger toward Guinievre. It was because of the queen that Arthur had broke all of the promise he had made to the druids. Now, the old religion is no more than a myth. the priest of the Christ have won. And even if she was aware that the big déesse was still there hiding under the name of Marie, she felt some regret that the people would forget their gods to only believe in one. But it was the normal thing. Like for the druid, this religion would grow and one day, maybe, it would found his end. But if everything is finished in her world, it was not the case on a different world. As a priestess of the déesse, Morgane had know a lot of secret of the nature. One of them was to be able to see the future. But some time what she see don't happen, and with time she had understand that there is some other universe.
Never before she had tried to use such a powerful magic, but she had nothing to lose anymore. Viviane, Mordred, Igraine, and Arthur, all of them were dead now. She wanted to change the fate for Arthur at last, but it was not easy to find the right universe. She had spend the last ten years at searching through the different universe. Often she was too late and Arthur had already married Guinievre. And in this case there is nothing she can do for him. And most of the one where he was not married with her, he already knows that she was his half-sister. She had begun to lost hope when she had finally found a world where nor Arthur was married with Guinievre, nor was he blood related with her. This world was strange to Morgane because Merlin was younger than Arthur. Morgane had always know Merlin as an old man, even when she was a child. And Uther was still alive, but his wife Igraine was dead. Maybe she can made things better in this world.
Morgane used almost all of her power to send her body in this universe. She had to make things right between Arthur and her other self. She can't forget, even after so long, the last words of Arthur. He had always loved her, even more than he had thought. Arthur and Morgana deserved their happiness. They are made for each other, of this Morgane is sure. And she will be damned if she let an old dragon decide the fate of the prince of Camelot again. Ready or not, the time of Morgane had come and even this sorcerer known as Merlin can't stop her !
Morgana was worried for Arthur. He seems that he was under some spell. The only thing he can talk about was Viviane, and Morgana felt sick about it. She had always hid it but even since she was a child she was very fond of Arthur. And with time she had begin to fall in love with him. But like she had often said to him, he was an idiot. He had never tried to see under her sarcasm. For him, she was just Morgana, the annoying sister-like he had grew up with. But she was more than this. And it break her heart to see that he fall for almost every woman but her. That's why she avoided him as much as she could for the past weeks. She can't stand to see him courting Gwen and only argue with her. Sometime, she wished to be at Gwen place, but she was aware that it was just a dream.
Morgana was in her room this night. She was worried sick for Arthur. Tomorrow, he would fight Olaf over Viviane, and there is nothing she can do about it. She let her tears fall in silence in the privacy of her room. She knows that no one would disturb her tonight, not even Gwen because Merlin had wanted to talk with her about some important subject. So she felt free to let her feelings take the better of her. And that's why she was so surprised when an old woman appeared in the middle of her room.
Morgana wondered about calling the guard, but she don't wanted for them to see her like this. She was aware that she is far away from the ice-lady of the castle she usually look like. Her eyes were red from her crying and her hair was a mess. Before she can made a decision, the old woman began to speak.
" Don't worry, child. I mean no harm to you, on the contrary. I'm here to help you to gain what you truly deserved." Said the old woman with a calming voice.
Morgana don't know why, but she wanted to believe the woman.
" Help me ? For what ? And why ?" Asked a very puzzled Morgana.
At this the old woman began to laugh.
" Always impatient, I see. I was like this too. Some things never change. But please excuse my lack of manners. I'm Morgane."
" Morgane ? We have almost the same name."
" That's normal. But we don't have time to lost for me to tell you my story. Like I have said, I'm here for helping you. I'm aware that you are in love with Arthur."
" I'm not.." Began Morgana, but she don't finished her sentence. The knowing look in the old woman's eyes let her know that she would not believe her deny.
" You will lost him forever if you don't act soon." Continued Morgane as if Morgana don't have said a word. " Tonight, Gwen will come to him and win him forever. But you can change that."
" How ?" Exclamed a very impatient Morgana.
She don't believed that she still had her chance with Arthur, but this little spark of hope is enough to make her ready to battle. If there is a chance for her and Arthur she will do everything for it.
" You have to take Gwen's place. Arthur Love Gwen, but he also love you very much. For now, both of you share his heart, and he will give his whole heart to the one who will kiss him tonight."
" How do you know ?" Asked again Morgana.
" I'm a sorceress. Surely you know that. But I'm not bad as king Uther think. Sure, there is bad sorceress, but I'm not amongst them. I want you and Arthur to be happy together."
" I believe you." Cut again Morgana.
" I'm glad. Now there is a lot of thing I need to do for you to be ready for tonight. You have to trust me."
" I will."
" That's good. But before we begin, you have to know a lot of thing. The first one is that no matter what Uther think, you are not his daughter."
" What ? Me ? Uther's daughter ?" Said a frantic Morgana.
" No ! You are not. You are Gorlois daughter, but your mother had said this to Uther for him to take care of you after the death of your real father."
" But, if Uther think that I was his daughter, he would never allow me to be with Arthur as his queen."
" I have faith in both of you. I have no doubt you will find a way to convince him one day. There is an other thing you need to know. Merlin is a powerful sorcerer. He is here to protect Arthur. You have to made of him an ally. Again I know that you will find a way."
There is so much to take that for once Morgana felt herself speechless. Morgane smiled at her puzzled expression and she gently take her arm. Suddenly, Morgana felt a very hard pain and she soon lost conscious. Morgane lead her to her bed, and again she smiled.
" I'm sorry, but it was needed to be done. You are no longer a sorceress nor a seer. Your power would be locked forever. You will be of no use for Morgause. It's for the best. I will die very soon, and I don't have time to teach you how to use you power for the good. Rest peacefully now. When you wake up, go to Arthur and let your heart speak for you. I will take care of Gwen, don't worry."
After that the old woman left Morgana's room for good.
When Morgana wake up, she felt an urge to go to see Arthur. She tried to reason herself but with each second her wish to go to see him grows. Finally she give up and ran to his tent. Outside the tent Merlin was there. Suddenly Morgana remembered that Merlin was a sorcerer. But she was not afraid of him. He was one of the few friend she had in Camelot and she would not betray him. She was all to well aware of what Uther would done if he found out what Merlin really is. She just hoped that one day he felt enough at ease with her to tell her his secret. She smiled at him and he returned her smile.
" How are you, Merlin ?" She cant help herself but asked.
" I'm fine, thank you. I hope you will succeed. Good Luck Gwen."
Morgana was ready to tell Merlin that she is not Gwen, but the sight of Arthur passing around his tent take her breath away. If she was not already in love with him, she can easily fall in love with him now.
She entered the tent and let the curtain fall. Now she was alone with Arthur and she really don't know how to go to him and kiss him. She wanted at the same time to run away and to go to him and kiss him with all of her love. But, in reality, she can't move.
Arthur looked at her and she can see the surprise in his eyes.
" Morgana ?" He asked. " What are you doing here ? Where is Viviane ?"
Arthur's words show Morgana out of her transe and before he can say an other word, she run to him and kiss him. She half expected for him to go away from her with anger, that's why she was so surprised when he hug her and began to return her kiss. It felt like heaven to her. For now she had all of Arthur's heart, and she will be damned if she ever let him go.
The next morning, Gwen woke up in a stale. She wondered how she can have fall asleep there. But soon her memories come to her, and she felt some dread at the thought that she don't have come to see Arthur the last evening. Merlin had told her that she was the only one who was able to break to spell, and she had failed him and Arthur. She felt the guilt eating her.
When Gwen knocked at lady Morgana's room, she was sad. She had tried to find Arthur but with no luck. And her duty to Morgana can't wait any longer, so she's gone to her mistress room. To say that she was shocked when she see a smile prince Arthur open the door was an understatement. The prince looked like his old self and some of Gwen's guilt left her. But she was beyond shocked when she see Arthur turn around and kiss Morgana before he left the two woman alone. And for the first time Gwen felt a deep pang of jealousy toward lady Morgana. It was unfair ! Merlin had told her that she is Arthur's true love. And she will be no matter the cost.
Unaware of the thought of her servant, Morgana smiled from happiness. She is now sure that Arthur and herself belong together. And she was also sure that one day she will be his queen. Maybe she would have to wait but someday they will be one forever.
End... Or to be continued ?
I hope you have liked. I'm a huge fan of the book " the mist of Avalon" and I love Morgana. I'm sorry if the scene is a lot of different from the one to the show, but I don't have see it. In France we have just seen 6 episode from season 1 so I have just let my imagination work with the few I have read about this episode from season 2. Don't forget to give me a review and let me know if I need to continue this story. I have a lot of idea to continue it but if you thought that this one-shot is enough, just say it. See you later, maybe.
