Merlin and Arthur were in the middle of a discussion about the Druids, when they were enveloped in a blue light.
"Merlin?" called Arthur. "What are you doing?"
"I'm not doing anything!"
"Actually," said a voice. "That would be me. Open your eyes, please."
Arthur and Merlin opened their eyes to see a young girl. "Hello!" she grinned. "Now, I am Lee Lee, and I've brought you here for a really good reason, promise."
"Who are you?" demanded Arthur.
"Told you, I'm Lee Lee. Now, a few other people are going to be joining you, namely Hunith, Gaius, Gwen, Gwaine and Uther. God knows why I agreed to bring that last one here, I can't stand the man. Now what your going to be doing here is watching a TV series about Merlin's life from the time he came to Camelot."
"What's a 'TV series'?"
"Well, to all you lot, Merlin, it's just moving pictures on a box that tell a story. I can't be bothered waiting till the others get here to explain it to them, so just do the best you can, 'kay?"
Arthur stood up. "Wait! You haven't told us why we're here!"
Lee Lee hit her forehead with her palm. "God, I'm a moron! Basically, Gwen, Gaius and Gwaine are coming because they are close to you, Merlin, and they have a right to know. Your mother's coming because she asked if she could when I told her I was doing this to you, and Uther's coming because I'll be damned if he doesn't leave this place with at least a grudging respect for magic and the Old Religion!"
Merlin raised his eyebrows. "Good luck with getting Uther to change."
Lee Lee smiled. "Thanks Merlin. Have fun explaining to the others, bye!"
"You've got to be joking." said Arthur, as he saw a small box on top of the black box (for the rest of the fic, the TV will be referred to as 'the block box' and the show will be called 'the pictures') "This is you!"
Merlin shrugged. "She said it was about my life."
There was a faint pop and some smoke, and when it cleared Merlin and Arthur saw a furious Uther, a worried Hunith and Gwen and a calm Gaius and Gwaine.
"Merlin," Gwaine nodded. "What about that Lee Lee girl, eh?"
"She told you? She said she was leaving us to explain."
"She said she didn't want to put the two of you through the hassle." Gwaine grinned. "She kissed me on the cheek as well. Said it was my 'quota of women' for the amount of time we're in here."
Merlin snorted, then jumped as the box burst into colour.
"Let the show begin! Oh, I can't wait!" said Lee Lee's voice from above them.
