Author's Notes: I started this story back in August 2009, and it was the first story I ever posted on the [livejournal.com profile] merlinxarthur comm. I made an end of the year resolution that I would finish "Nothing Has Changed" before 2012 hits. I didn't want to go another year with this story left incomplete.

Happy New Year, everyone! :D

Part 7b: Because the older Merlin is not fond of the underground cavern, Merlin gets taken outside of Time to have their talk. Arthur gets a surprise visitor.


Author's Notes: Some scenes planned for this chapter didn't make it in. They'll be in Chapter 8 (the final chapter), which may be divided up as Chapter 7 was. This chapter took quite some time to write and I'm overall satisfied with it. I'm sorry to leave this chapter on a cliffhanger for Merlin and Arthur...shame on me. ;)

“And now we may have rest, in the quiet silver-circled castle at the back of the North Wind, among the apple trees. And those we leave behind may think of us in greeting each night, when the crown of the North Wind, the Corona Borealis, rises above the horizon in its circlet of stars.”

(Silver on the Tree, 268 | The Dark Is Rising Sequence by Susan Cooper)

A/N: This is a short chapter that sets up the next part of the story. An interlude chapter, more like it. I don't know if I'll be able to finish this by Sept. 19, but we'll see... Thanks to all who are reading this fic. :)

Summary: "Well, then we’ll make sure it doesn’t come to that."
Author's Notes: I had hoped to keep this to three parts, but it looks like that won't be the case anymore. I'm not sure how long this will be. Maybe five parts total, we'll see. I didn't want to rush the timeline of the story. I'm hoping to finish by Sept. 19 (when S2 premieres :-)). My other story, "Arthur Remembers First" will be updated next. :-)

Summary: Arthur has a new responsibility. Merlin is demanding.  
Author's Notes: This chapter is longer than expected - I knew where I wanted it to end, but it was taking a while to get to that point. I managed it at least. :-) I'm considering writing an epilogue after the third part, so technically there will be four parts. Hope you like this!
