nonisland: Camelot in red and gold, with text "make your own destiny" ([Merlin] make your own destiny if you ca)
fandom: Merlin
rating: general audiences
characters/pairings: pre-Freya/Morgana, Gwen&Morgana, mentions of Gwen/Lancelot
length: ~3.2K words
content notices: Reference to offscreen character deaths, discussion of offscreen murder unrelated to those; reference to mind control (Freya is cursed much as she is in canon); Uther’s general existence; effects of offscreen homophobia; really unhistorical historical fiction.
summary: Morgana might be the only person in England who ever tried to befriend a deadly water-spirit.
notes: This is what I’ve seen called “costume historical” or “wallpaper historical” as a setting for romance novels, so if historical precision, detail, and accuracy are essential for your enjoyment this is not the fic for you. Written for [livejournal.com profile] untold_legends. Title is from Regina Spektor’s “Aquarius”. Many many thanks to [archiveofourown.org profile] lady_ragnell for an incredibly last-minute second pair of eyes on this; any errors that remain are entirely my fault one way or another.
ao3 crosspost: here

The water-spirit looks lost, and Morgana’s heart breaks for her even as she thinks, distant and cold, that it’s a good thing Gwen has the poker because if those slender deadly hands close around Morgana’s wrists she’ll be too distracted by the touch to pull away. )
