Hello again. I have the first chapter of the sequel to this story going up now. It is called "Power and Responsibility" and it immediately follows this one chronologically. Sorry for the delay in posting this story—it is actually not done yet, but I have twelve chapters so far. I think it will turn out to be a bit longer than "Trickery and Lies". I will try to post one every other day or thereabouts.
Merlin returns to Camelot to find his magical powers surprisingly in demand, though Arthur still has his reservations about his former friend. The Nemeth court visits. Even Arthur finds himself embracing Merlin's talents when Morgana returns, but Merlin finds the most challenging conflicts come from within. Follows "Trickery and Lies".
