Summary: It wasn’t all that unusual for people to hide their daemons; Merlin, however, seems to be taking it a little far.

Why You Should Read This:
Because it’s a His Dark Materials fusion! Everyone has a daemon, and Arthur becomes obsessed with figuring out what Merlin’s is. But hardly a day can go by without these two getting into trouble. A “magic revelation” fic, pretty short in comparison to other fics rec’d here. Mad_Maudlin is an excellent author, and I could picture everything that happened perfectly. She did a great job capturing the feel of the show and incorporating it into her fic.
