Saw Avengers: Age of Ultron last night, and let me tell you there is no better feeling in the world than being in a huge room full of fellow nerds. Not little kids. Like 16 to 28 year olds. Every time something funny happened, or that thing with Thor (trying not to spoil the movie for others) we all laughed, clapped, and gasped together. It was amazing. I felt like I belonged with them.
It had been so long since Merlin felt his magic run through his veins. He might not have remembered it, but he felt like something was missing. Living the pat 28 years as Colin, made him feel like he was missing something, something big and important. And remembering after was a breath of fresh air. Yet, not. He still had to hide it.
He saw how everyone looked at Regina. He didnt want that. It was one of the reasons why he refused to say anything at home. But now, it was the same all over again. But now he had luxuries such as TV and Internet.
Keeping his magic hidden was easier than expected. He didnt need to use it in front of people. Until he did. A flick of his hand and a flash of his eyes turned the creature back to stone, rocking on the road slightly.
He liked Emma, he really did. She saved them all, but he did not want her to know about him. Too many questions he didnt want to answer. He pressed himself against a wall, trying to hide from view before anyone saw he changed the creature to stone.
