Characters/Pairings: Merlin/Luke, Merlin/Martin, Martin/Luke, Ghostwheel, Mandor
Rating & Warnings: Explicit. Non-con. Darkfic. Revenge. Canon divergent AU. Some non-canon speculation about shapeshifters and sex and gender and identity. Merlin monologues a bit. Weak ending/requires sequel.
Notes: I’m writing for iddyiddybangbang, so the deadline is the 15th. The story is about 33000 words, and I’m more in need of a beta who can tell me if the characterization is erratic and if I have left Chekov’s gun unfired or failed to adequately explain something. A SPaG check would be appreciated but is less important. This story diverges from canon after Luke left Merlin in the Blue Crystal Cave and has some very, very unpleasant things happen to Merlin as part of the backstory. The unpleasant things in the story itself are pretty much all things that Merlin does, more or less in response, and things he remembers. The Merlin/Martin is consensual. Everything with Luke is not.
