Summary: When Arthur notices the scars on Merlin, he sets off to find out why a servant of all people has such marks and discovers that Merlin might not be all that he seems. From kinkme_merlin prompt here
Warnings: Mentions of violence, kidnapping (think Tears of Uther Pendragon), skinning of rabbits, magical reveal.
Notes: All lyrics (title and page breaks) come from Laura Marling’s ‘Blackberry Stone’. I'd also like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who commented while I was working on this. Without you, this story wouldn't be where it is today so thank you so, so much! Other than that... enjoy!
