Merlin Alternate Universe - t h e s t o r m c h a s e r
Arthur loved chasing storms. The thrill of excitement when the wind picked up speed, the sound of rain hitting the windshield, seeing the sky darken and almost being able to feel the lightning flashing between the clouds. Life as a storm chaser taught Arthur a lot about the world around him. But lately there was a change in the storms that even he could not figure out. Swirling tornadoes appearing out of nowhere, rainclouds staying above a single place, unmoving, and a certain energy was palbable in the air. Arthur knew this was something different. Something unexplainable.
For days he drove across the country, following the chain of storms, determined to find the cause of these twists and turns of nature. Days of setting up satellites, fixing equipment, measuring windspeeds, driving closer and closer to the eye of each storm and watching from his car. Seeing nothing.
Until, on one stormy afternoon, he decided to step out of his stormproof car, walk through the cold rain and icy wind and finally found what he chased after. The hidden heart of nature’s most powerful phenomenon;
“You know Arthur. It’s… lonely. To… be more powerful than any man you know and have to live like a shadow.”
and I cried and cried and cried
over the love of you
I thought it might.

For hundreds, thousands of years Merlin waited. Wandering through cities, learning languages of places far away, studying the effects of time and always, always coming back. Even if it took miles and miles of travelling, he always came back to protect and guide the kings and queens born in the only land he called home.
No one knew his name nor noticed his presence in the palace and Merlin was known only to a few in the royal household as the tutor. But that was before the hundreds of wars, before diseases taking lives and having to say goodbye to many familiar faces. However, not all hope was lost; for as the years passed by, there came one prince, one royal wedding and one announcement. And the waiting was over.
In a land called home and a time of prosperity; a young prince was born. His name; Arthur
