Rating:  M

Author's notes: This has been such a wild ride, and I'm so glad to finally share this story with you. A huge thanks to my beta readers, and to my lovely artist; h-l-w, for your wonderful work. You guys were my motivation and my strength whenever I remotely wanted to throw in the towel; and all of this creation was made thanks to you. Thanks to the mods for hosting this event as well.  I hope you enjoy reading the story!!

Artist's notes: Art's posted over on tumblr!!!

Summary: When Arthur races after a lost Merlin the moment he gets word that he's been held captive, a twisted revelation makes his own home a place he cannot return to. And presented with the choice of knowing and not knowing what the future held, and his home, and his people all on the line; the prince of Camelot is torn. Because if he knows, he would submit to the path the gods set for him, damn the consequences, damn the effects it could have on the people he loved. But if he doesn't.....

If he doesn't...

Title: No Night So Dark

Author: Cithara

Artist: emhe67

Pairings/Characters: Merlin/Arthur Pendragon

Rating: Explicit

Word Count: 121,128

Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply

Disclaimer: It isn't mine, just playing with the characters.

Author's notes: This has been a real labour of love and I've enjoyed every minute of writing it. Thank you to my one of a kind beta, who has also, through this process, become a wonderful friend - teachinghimpoetry. I honestly couldn't have done this without you. Thank you also to my amazing artist, Emmi. I loved your work before this and I'm incredibly honoured to have had you as an artist. I hope you all enjoy the fic and I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

Artist's notes: The only think I can say is, you should read her amazing fan fiction and everything will become clear!

Summary: 7 years ago, Arthur banished Merlin after finding out that he possessed magic, destroying the love they had built in the process. Now, with Camelot under threat from Morgana, Arthur swallows his pride and seeks help from the one person he knows he can trust. Merlin reluctantly returns to Camelot - with a son in tow. Arthur must try to make amends for the past while he struggles to reconcile the fact that Merlin's son is connected to him in a way he could never imagine.

Hello Artists!


Please submit your rough drafts by the end of the day Saturday, August 6!

What we are asking for at this time are rough drafts, not your final artwork. The minimum requirement is one piece of art. We are only requiring you to send us one single draft to show that you are making progress on your submissions. If you have more or are planning more works, that’s awesome! Feel free to send everything that you have. We’d love to see them!

You may continue working right up to your posting date. Also, if you happen to run short of time and have additional art for your story after it posts, you can also add to the art after the story is posted.

Please send your art drafts to: aftercamlann@gmail.com.

Please put your USERNAME & the words ”ART DRAFT” in the subject of the email. (If this seems redundant it is only because I have also recently received Writer’s Final Drafts.)

Please submit your draft(s) as an attachment(s) in the form of a .jpg, .png or .gif file(s).

Please copy and paste the header & questionnaire below into the body of your email and fill it out COMPLETELY.

Please Note: If you are doing art for more than one story you can send all your work in a single email.

31 July 2022 @ 01:08 pm


All Participants Please Read This Entire Post


At this time, we are asking you for your final DRAFT, not your finished fic.

This means you are not required to have your fic beta'd, but it must be completely finished and beta'd when you post. NO WIPs are allowed. Any story that isn't at least 25k at the time of posting will be removed.

Authors and Artists, you may keep working right up to your posting date. If artists happen to run short of time and have additional art for your collaboration after it posts, you are allowed to add to the art after the story is posted.

If you will NOT be ready to post by August 15, now is the time to let us know. We've already had a few requests for late posting dates and we will try to accommodate as many special requests as we can, but it may not be logistically possible for everyone.

First and foremost, late posting dates will be granted for pinch-hitting artists and genuine hardship. Please don't ask for a late date if you don't have a good reason for requiring it.

Posting is tentatively set to begin on August 15

More information regarding posting and the posting schedule will be coming after final drafts are submitted so that we have a better idea of what kind of schedule will work best for everyone.

Please send your final draft to: aftercamlann@gmail.com and include the following information:

1. Put your USERNAME & story TITLE in the subject of the email.

2. If you are submitting your Final Draft as a document, please only send the following document types: .rtf, .doc, or .docx files so that the mods may open it. Alternatively, you may use Google docs to submit your final draft, but please ensure that permissions are set so that we are able to open it.

3. Please copy and paste the questionnaire and header below into the body of your email and fill it out COMPLETELY. (If you are posting as a standalone author, just leave the artist spot blank.)


Questions can be sent via email and we will reply to them asap.
02 July 2022 @ 09:20 am
We are hosting our 2022 Artist Check-In post on our DreamWidth account this year, in order to allow everyone to comment even if they don’t have an account.

Summaries available for claiming are located HERE. The prompts are numbered Number 1 through Number 20, the coordinating number for each summary is above it.

If you aren’t available to make a claim yourself, claiming by proxy is allowed.

Claims will be on a first come-first serve basis. As a reminder, we are asking that artists who are already pre-matched please wait 24 hours after claims have gone up before claiming another summary. This will give artists who are not already matched with an author opportunity to still do so. Once the first 24 hours have passed, we will allow our pre-matched artists to claim a summary if they would like to do so!

If all summaries are not all claimed in a reasonable amount of time, we will open a second round of claims for any artist who wants to take on more than one story.

All unmatched artists may claim one summary in the first round. (If there are any unclaimed prompts after everyone has picked, artists will be able to claim again in a second round of claims.)

While you are not required to make three choices in order to make a claim, the mods recommend choosing a 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th choice for the best results. If you’d rather take your chances with just one or two choices, that’s up to you.

If you have an LJ account, please use the template below, fill it out and leave it as a comment to this entry.

If you do not have an LJ account, you can fill out the Google Form here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeMPjJb2sIxZKFxMrf_4KRkhRpvrQYCvIimUm45EKfKg70C1w/viewform

Please Note: Comments are screened so they will only be visible to the mods. As each summary is claimed, it will be crossed off the summary list in order to make it easier for later-coming claimants to see what’s still available.
