A Once and Future Destiny by wryter501 reviews
Arthur stood as if frozen in time, as if the ceiling had dropped down, or he'd been hit over the head with a … tree branch, or… "Don't you know who I am?" he blurted. "Don't you remember me?" Merlin concluded shortly, "Nope." If Destiny has returned the once and future court of Camelot to the world, what does it mean that Merlin doesn't - or won't - remember them?

Unchanging by MildeAmasoj reviews
