Fic: Baptism by Fire, Gwen/Arthur Uther, PG

ETA: Sorry if this spams you. I may have gone a little overboard on the x-posting @_@ ♥

Title: Baptism by Fire
Author: kepp0xy
Characters/Pairings: Gwen/Arthur, Uther; a little bit of Morgana and Merlin near the end
Rating: PG
Warnings: Nope.
Word count: ~5220
Summary: Uther discovers the secret relationship between Arthur and Gwen.

Author's Notes: I've been a little obsessed with the idea of Gwen and Uther having an intense moral showdown since the end of series 1. This doesn't fit those parameters exactly but the tense battle-of-wills aspect of what I'd wanted is something I really strived for. In the interest of full disclosure, this is possibly a bit of wish fulfilment, but all in all I'm pleased with how it turned out, and this is probably one of the fics I'm most proud of. So many thanks to and_i for the generous betawork ♥ All remaining mistakes are mine.

"You've put a wedge between my son and I," he began. Gwen hardly bit back the scoff that flew primed in her throat. In her opinion, Uther did a good enough job on his own of hammering wedges, building walls and digging moats between he and Arthur, but this was not the place to voice such thoughts.
