Summary: In Arthur’s first reincarnated life, he hopes to finally have a proper relationship with Merlin. While they couldn’t be together the way they wanted in the days of Camelot, this new modern world opens up possibilities for them.
Everything is going well during their reunion until Arthur discovers that there’s one change in Merlin’s current incarnation that he can’t so easily accept.
Author's Notes: Written for deathsblood for glomp_fest. Prompts used were: canon AU (which ventures into reincarnation fic, but the setting is mostly in a palace atmosphere, so yeah...), pining, love potions, do-it-overs and some angst. A big thank you to a8c_sock for the beta and for her helpful advice. I appreciate it. :-)
I hope you enjoy this story!

The existence of the wardrobe and it being an entrance to Avalonia is a nod to "The Chronicles of Narnia" book series. I make no profit from this endeavor.
