Title: Break Like Time: The Fifth Column
Author: Ardent rose_mina
Pairings/characters: Arthur/Merlin, background Gwen/Lancelot, one-sided Merlin/Viviane
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~31k
Warnings: Violence, moral ambiguity
Summary: [Canon AU] Three prominent rebellion factions plague Albion, the strongest of which are the Dragonlords. When Merlin is made royal manservant to the Prince's household for (accidentally) saving his life, he is more than happy to play spy on the oppressive Pendragons per his father's, the leader of the Dragonlords, request. Little did he know that he would grow to care about those he meets on the other side.

Author's notes: I am ridiculously lucky to receive aeternitasbeach's attention, art magic, and mad beta skills. She beta'd this fic like you wouldn't believe. Not only did she talk me through some of my more epic meltdowns but her constant praise and insights were what made this fic possible. Seriously, if it wasn't for her, I would have never finished. I couldn't do this without her! Someone else I need to thank with all my heart is hitokiri_neko, who beta'd this fic and stepped in as a cheerleader when I most needed it. All remaining mistakes are so mine, you'd need a court order to seize them.

Additional credit: Merlin's spells taken from the lexicon compiled by archaeologist_d. Quotes shamelessly taken and mangled from Star Trek TOS, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, various Merlin episodes, and The Princess Bride. Profile banner made by fruitstyle. Original big bang post.

Art link: Epic fanvid made by aeternitasbeach. If you haven't seen it yet, omg, go go go! Watch it now! <3 It is amazing and epic doesn't even describe it. Seriously. This fic can wait.
