Drowning - Trojie - Merlin (BBC) [Archive of Our Own]
An AU of S2E07 - The Witchfinder. Merlin decides that the only way to keep Arthur from suspicion is to stop doing magic himself. This has serious consequences.

Originally written for the Merlin Kinkmeme prompt 'Arthur finds about Merlin's magic and is unsure of what to think. In an effort to placate him, Merlin goes cold turkey and stops using magic, but ends up going through serious withdrawal.' Some major departures from the prompt, however.

✢ Talk Sense to a Fool
"When Arthur finds out about Merlin's magic, he does the only thing he can think of. He banishes him. Circumstances force Merlin to live as a woman to avoid recognition, and he wanders through the Kingdom of Camelot, looking for a new purpose in life. He finds it in 4 small children. Thrown away by their parents for gifts they had no choice in recieving. Merlin realizes his true calling is to spread the knowledge that magic means no harm. Some time later, his path crosses with Arthur again. But with the memory of betrayal so fresh in their minds, can they over come the prejudices built over years of distrust and hatred?"
