A/N: I will warn you: A bit twisted, definitely character death, dark!Arthur. Please don't judge me because I can write sick stuff. I don't own Merlin.


It was silent, save for Arthur Pendragon's ragged breathing. And the blood, slowly dripping down the walls. Arthur, by nature, licked blood off his lip. It tasted like…blood. Who's was it? No way to know.

This had all started so innocently. He was just talking to his father about how he had been, well, neglected, to put it lightly. Uther barely even knew Arthur. It was always Morgana that he loved.

After Uther told him that, Arthur snapped.

Does killing things mend a broken heart? No, but it's good fun.

He did it. He didn't know how. It happened so fast. Arthur had just slit Uther's throat. Just like that, it was over.

It felt amazing.

The rest was a blur, a fulfillment of the addiction he had always had. He loved to kill. Sadist? No. He hated to see the people suffer. But he loved seeing them dead.

His mind was long gone by the point it was silent. Too silent. Arthur dropped his sword. The clatter jolted him out of the daze he was in.

Does killing things mend a broken heart? No, but it's good fun.

Somehow, the noise brought him back. He was insane now, still. But not quite as much.

He saw what he had done. The mutilation. It made him vomit.

And…was that… No. It couldn't…

Gwen was on the ground next to him. He sank to his knees, and fell against the wall, blood running through his hair.

Merlin. Where was Merlin? He'd fix this. He could always help somehow.

Arthur got to his feet, staggering slowly away, blood getting in his eyes.

Does killing things mend a broken heart? No, but it's good fun.

He found Merlin. God, no. The pain and betrayal on Merlin's face made Arthur break down in tears.

Morgana materialized next to him.

"Arthur, look!" she said happily, "You've created a new Camelot. Let me rule with you, and we'll be unstoppable."

"Father always loved you best." Arthur said in a monotone, then grabbed her and held her still while he drove a dagger into her heart.

Does killing things mend a broken heart? No, but it's good fun.
