Merlin Fairytale Au: Childhood sweethearts hardly stay long, Merlin Emrys, the lead tenor of the Paris Opera House, had mused many times in his life. Bound by a past love for a boy he’d known years before, he’d never truly been able to devote himself to anyone but his voice, even when a gauntly phantom offers him the secrets to talent and fortune in return for love. When his past unearths its self once more in the face of Viscount Arthur Pendragon, Merlin realizes that their romance hasn’t aged as they have. However, as the Phantom begins to sense Merlin’s affections, he abducts the tenor to the lowest pits of the Opera House to be his eternal songbird and lover. Arthur, unknowing of the horrors that the Opera House harbors, takes it upon himself to save his sweetheart and end the Phantom’s reign of terror.
