Pairings/characters: Merlin

Summary/Author's notes: There are other mythologies...

In the Old Forest, just beyond Camelot's walls, there stood a mighty tree, alone.

"Do not approach it," Gaius had long warned, and Merlin, assuming the tree was cursed with dark magic, stayed away until a hunt with Arthur and a spirited fox chase led him to the tree's clearing.

Merlin approached the tree with caution and curiosity. An ash, he decided. But how had it grown here, a hundred yards from any other foliage?

He sensed no curse, yet he felt something else.

Merlin pressed his hand to the bark, and an unfamiliar name echoed in his mind.
