Summary:There was a reason Uther needed magic to conceive…

*-*

Uther had been so arrogant, to think that he above all other Immortals could bear a son.

There was a reason he could not have children, and he had used magic to alter nature’s course. He had known there would be a price to pay, and his wife had paid it dearly.

A mortal life had to be sacrificed to bring forth new life, and Uther did not have that to give. In that moment he would have given his Quickening to trade places with her.

His beloved was dead and he knew that he was to blame, not Nimueh.


A/n:For those of you who read my Immortal!Giles series, there is a possibility that Uther is Rwpyrt, I haven't made my mind up yet.

Interesting premise. I enjoyed this a lot.

Thank you, it was one of those annoying 'what if' ideas that wouldn't let me be.

It works for Uther as we see him and I'll be interested to see if you decide he is Rwpyrt... or not.

Good stuff.

Thank you, hon.

I think I'd like him to be Rwpyrt, but I need to then reconcile a)how Rwpyrt became Uther and then b)how Uther came to stop hating magic and start using it. It's a big task and will take some serious thinky thoughts...

how Uther came to stop hating magic

Darius. *nods*

Depending on *when* you decide his change of heart took place a certain Irish immortal bard might have been some help.
