Immortality was never something Arthur Pendragon had wanted. Merlin didn’t give him that choice. As the rest of the world reincarnates, blissfully oblivious, Arthur continues, waiting for the one man who never came back.
there are two basic questions about this one. First: Why would someone write something so sad? Second: Why do I read things, that hurt my soul? Seriously, this story was really heartbreaking. Its the other way round, Arthur living on through time and waiting for Merlin. And he’s so lonely, so broken, so empty. Its so hard to read through all those words, all those lines, that just tell you how lonely he is and how much he misses Merlin. I needed to eat lots of chocolate while reading this.
