Summary: Post S3 Canon AU:

Merlin is an accomplished artist. It's not a secret, not like his magic, but very few people are aware of his talent. Arthur isn't one of them.

Unlike the real prince, the portraits of Arthur Merlin draws stare up at him with affection, love and sometimes even desire.

So when Arthur inexplicably pushes Merlin away, the resulting feelings of loss and loneliness cause Merlin to make a desperate decision: he brings his latest drawing of Arthur to life. And this Arthur loves Merlin...passionately.

Author's Note:

Dear Goss,

I truly fell in love with the art you created for Reverse Big Bang immediately. As soon as I saw it, and the idea for this story came to me almost in an instant. I only wish that this was written as quickly!

Thank you for the inspiration! I sincerely hope you enjoy the results.

Thank you so much to the mods over at [livejournal.com profile] merlinreversebb for the understanding and support!

Massive thanks to my beta [livejournal.com profile] rocknvaughnfor the unending support AND for whipping this story into shape. If it's at all readable, that's all down to her!

Thanks [livejournal.com profile] jelazakazone for the story title!

Also: For the purposes of this fic, I have banished the historically inaccurate glass mirrors from Camelot. Go with it, I have my reasons!
