BACK TO FANFICTION

I didn’t think I’d go back to it, but here I am working on fanfiction. My original novel (the first one I’ve ever completed) is still being reworked and thus I have gone back to working with someone else’s characters and I do believe that my new MERLIN fanfiction story will end up being quite good. It’s entitled Chosen for You and is a tale about Morgana & Merlin.

Excerpt:

Morgana looked down on the sleeping boy. Her and Merlin had been talking about magic and Morgana said what she had begun to believe, though she still chose her words carefully. “What if you don’t chose magic?” she asked tentatively. “What if it chooses you?”

Morgana paused and turned to Merlin, who was saying nothing. He was just staring at her intently. “Why are you looking at me like that?” she asked with anaccusatory tone but the curious look in Merlin’s face did not change. “Merlin!?”

“Do you really mean that?” he asked with a raised eyebrow.

“Mean what?”

“Do you really believe that magic is chosen for a person and not by them?”

Morgana paused. She did believe in what she had said but she wasn’t sure whether Merlin was questioning her because he believed the same or because he was Arthur’s spy. ‘But why would he spy for Arthur andUther?’ she questioned in her mind. ‘After all, he is the one that brought to boy to me, he is the one who saved the boy from Uther’s guards. How can he believe as they do and do all that at the same time?’

“Morgana?” Merlin asked tentatively. “Do you–?”

“I do,” she answered, cutting him off in the process. “I believe that magic chooses the person. The person doesn’t chose magic.”

Merlin let out an audible sigh of relief.

“What?” asked Morgana curiously. “What is it?”

“I have been waiting a long time to hear someone say that.”

And there you have it. I wonder where this little drabble will lead me.
