Arthur. It whispered his name so that he wouldn't forget it. Arthur. There were voices whispering to him, wisps of light dancing just out of sight. Tantalisingly close, drawing him nearer, beckoning him towards something, something cold and bright. It was icy and sharp and when the sensation reached his chest he gasped, gulping in cold air. He screamed.

What is and What Should Never Be by FireflyFanatic3x reviews
What if one wish you had, one you hadn't even said aloud, was granted? What if it changed everything? - when Arthur and Merlin go on a hunt for a magical creature - a 'Djinn' - which supposedly has the power to grant wishes, Athur is attacked. He then wakes up in Camelot, alive and well. But something is different... what has changed? And is he willing to live with the cost?

A little thought by I-O-U-a-picture reviews
Uther's thoughts towards why he started the Purge and what he thinks of his sons manservant. One-shot and has absolutely no connection to 'Fate faster than Destiny intended.'

Whirlwind Tour by caldera32 reviews
Normally he would simply roll over and try to eke out a few more moments of recumbence; but then, normally his window didn't explode as his shutters were torn out of the frame.
