Far Away by MakorraLove12 Far Away by MakorraLove12
'Cause you know, you know, you know
That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you'll be with me
And you'll never go
Stop breathing if I don't see you anymore
Nickelback, Far Away

Hello! So, this started as a request by one of my friend's who's obsessed with this crossover-ship. I personally never thought of these two together until now and while making this picture... Let's just say, I'm beyond in love with this ship. I don't know, even though I'm aware it's not a popular pairing, I could just see them romantically involved and they're so beautiful together~

Any thoughts? Any ideas for a ship name?

I've been watching a bunch of videos people have made on YouTube and looking at the very limited amount of pictures of them online. Sadly, there's no fanfics of them that I could find, so please if any of you come across a story of Jon/Morgana, let me know? I'd really, really appreciate it! :hug:

While making this, I was listening to this song, Far Away, by Nickelback. I don't know, I felt like it fit and it gave me an idea for a Merlin/Game of Thrones AU fanfic. By the near future I want to get working on this as a full story – whether it be a one-shot or multi-chapter. I'm a bit nervous to write it, however I'm willing to give it a try. Hopefully it comes out alright and people read and like it... ^^;

She belonged to House Pendragon, and he House Stark. Both families resided in the North, yet they were far from being called allies. Uther of House Pendragon and Ned of House Stark never saw eye to eye and instead resented one another. However, despite their many differences, both agreed to coexist for the sake of the nation. Regardless of the rivalry between the two, that did not prevent a small girl, Morgana Pendragon, from befriending a young bastard boy who went by the name Jon Snow.

They would meet by the riverbank by the time the sun broke over the horizon and once more just before dusk, watching the sun begin to set and the sky turn from various shades of blues to oranges to pinks and purples. He would teach her how to wield a sword, showing her the art of swordplay while she revealed her most precious secret. With a wave of her hand, sparks of magic flashed from her fingertips. She was unique; no other man or woman shared the same power as she. The last one heard of that possessed the power of magic was killed due to her own father's orders, therefore she never told another living soul of her amazed power. Except Jon Snow.

They grew up together, being each other's best and only friend. Catelyn Stark treated him terribly, never considering him part of the Stark family despite all of Ned's efforts. He was teased for being a bastard and he felt as if he never truly belonged. Morgana knew she was different and never really connected with anyone else, whether it be friends or other members of her family. She felt safe with Jon, as he no longer felt alone while with her.

Their strong connection never broke throughout the years, only grew stronger and beyond unbreakable. They kept their friendship a secret and promised they would never leave one another. All they had was each other and although neither said a word about it, they knew they were falling in love.

It was one gloomy morning that Morgana sat by the water, her magic lazily dancing around the tips of her fingers. She waited for Jon and continued to wait until the sun fell and the moon rose in its place. She forced herself to ignore the fact that it was the first day since they've met that he hadn't showed up. It was just when her eyelids began to grow heavy did she hear approaching footsteps and she knew without even turning her head they belonged to the man she had been waiting for.

When she glanced over her shoulder, she did not expect to see the saddened look plastered across his face, the tears visible in his eyes. She stood up immediately, but did not take a step toward him. Only waited. The look in his eyes told her everything, yet she still refused to believe it. He apologized over and over as she simply shook her head at him, not believing his words as he began to explain why he was leaving – why he was leaving her. He was going to the Wall to serve the Night's Watch. He felt like that is where he should be and begged her to understand, but she didn't. She couldn't and she wouldn't.

He said goodbye to her, though she threatened him she would never forgive him. It was supposed to be him and her against the world; they were supposed to be together. He went to hold her one last time and thought about finally brushing his lips against hers, but she turned her head and took a step away from him. With tears in her eyes, her voice on the verge of breaking, she told him to go. She yelled at him to leave and tried to say how she was better off alone anyways. She didn't need him. She didn't need anyone.

She left without another word and refusing to let him anywhere near her. He rode off on his horse back home to say one last goodbye to his family and gather the last of his supplies, constantly looking back in hopes she would change her mind and see him off. She didn't.

He was at Castle Black, talking to Sam about ever being with a woman. Sam teased him for never being with a woman, but Jon only closed his eyes and willed the tears to stay away. He explained to Sam how he had ever truly loved one woman and after all of this time, he wasn't even sure if she was still alive. The North was in chaos after Ned's death and he hadn't heard word from Morgana since the night he told her he was leaving. He found himself confessing to Sam how he loved her with all his heart, yet he never told her. He left without telling her how he felt and he desperately missed her. He would dream of her at night and relive memories of her during the day with her hair blowing in the wind, a smile gracing her lips as she sat by the riverbank beside him.

The horn sounded loudly one night, waking all brothers of the Night's Watch. There was someone lurking by the gate, the shadows of the night shielding away their identity. Jon was the first to investigate, his sword drawn to defend himself if need be. The Crows were ready to attack, figuring it could be a Wildling, however they couldn't be more wrong.

A woman's crystal blue eyes connected with Jon's for a brief moment before she collapsed into the snow, her knees finally giving out from the long, painful walk. Without a second of hesitation, he recognized those eyes. Morgana Pendragon. He kneeled before her, gathering her shivering body into his arms as he held her close. Bruises and scratches were scattered with dried blood painting along her skin. She was barely conscious, yet she was aware enough to know she was finally in Jon's arms. She smiled weakly at him, her breathing coming in short gasps.

He repeatedly told her she was okay, she'd be okay. He took her inside immediately, bringing her to where he slept. He stroked her hair, whispering soothing words as she fell in and out of consciousness. Her father had found out she had magic and, despite her being his daughter, he threatened for her execution. The North was already spiraling out of control, losing all feelings of "home." She was by the riverbank, alone, when a man named Ramsay Bolton approached her. He was kind at first until she showed no interest in him, bringing out all the rage that boiled inside of him. He attacked her and pressed her down into the cold ground as he climbed on top of her, yet she was a fighter. Always had been. She dug her nails into him, clawing at his face as she kicked wildly until he loosened his grip on her. She was careful in revealing her magic, so instead she ran.

And she never stopped.

Morgana told Jon he was all she thought about as she placed one foot in front of the other and she had nowhere else to go. Women were not allowed at Castle Black, but she promised she could help cook or clean or even fight. She knew how to wield a sword and she had powerful magic – she could be of help to the Watch. He urged her to rest for the time being, let him worry about the rest and for once, she just nodded. In a small voice, she told him how she wasn't sure if she could be apart from him again; she wouldn't be able to handle it. He kissed her forehead and told her he'd never leave her again, even if that meant he would abandon the Watch.

Jon told her how much he loved her – how he had always loved her – and there was not a day that went by where he hadn't thought of her. He caressed her face, his thumb gently stroking along her cheek as he whispered to her how he had been far away for far too long and swore her a promise.

He made the mistake once, but not again. He climbed beside her onto the small bed, holding her tired body tightly against him as she laid her head on his chest, listening to the soothing sound of his heartbeat. She was his as he was hers. Forever.

There would not be another day spent where it was not by her side or being able to gaze into her loving, yet always mysterious, eyes. He would fight 'til the end, if it came to that because there was one thing Jon Snow knew...

He was never letting go again.

So, that was a little background to the story I plan on getting started with. It's not the actual story, otherwise there would have been actual dialogue. I'm about to leave for a day trip so I was rushing a bit to get this posted (sorry the ending was sort of lame, I'll fix that! ^^;). I'll probably edit this once I get internet or when I return, just so you all know. Again, although I know it's not a popular ship, I do hope you all would consider it? When I finish it I will post it on Fanfiction and probably even on here~

I literally was like ...wai- wait a minute! Is that who I think it is?!?! Low and behold, it is! I absolutely loved the series of Merlin, it was just so deep and beautiful. Morgana was such an intersting character and played so well too. 

I love the way you done this and it`s merged so well together! Awesome work! 

Psst.. don`t hesitate to make any Merlin wallpapers! :P Not going to lie Colin Morgan is adorable as Merlin!~

Oh, indeed it is! Although I'm sure it was a bit of a shock to see Morgana with Jon Snow... xD Haha, so yeah, many of my friends urged me to watch it and I'm so happy I've finally gotten around to watching it! I've heard so much about Merlin and I'm so excited to finally be able to catch up in the series! ^^ Morgana is so beautiful and such an intriguing character, definitely my favorite as of yet.

Ah, thank you very much! I'm really sorry about the late reply, I haven't had much time until now! But I'm glad you like this picture, it took me forever to make, but in the end I'm actually quite satisfied with the result ~ So thank you! :D

Haha, I'm really inspired to do more Merlin wallpapers! Just need some ideas and I'll be good to go~ ^^; But have no fear, plenty of Merlin wallpapers will most likely come your way! ;)

I've never seen Merlin (I know will get to it) so I can't say anything whether Morgana works with Jon in terms of personality but aesthetically this does look great. Both are dark and misunderstood as they are in black but appears to be the sweetest people you can imagine.

Haha oh you're not the only one. I need to step it up, I've only seen a couple, but didn't get that far... But from what I have seen and what I've read, I like to think their personalities fit! ^^ Ah, I always love reading your thoughts - I completely agree with you. They're both kind of outcasts and misunderstood, yet there's so much to them nobody even knows.

Thank you so much, though! I'm so glad you like it! :happybounce:

Ooh, thank you so, so much!! :D I hate how there's basically no one who ships them  (which is understandable since they're from different shows and not a couple that would come straight to mind), but still! They really do make a beautiful couple if you think about it~ :heart: I can't even begin to tell you how long this took me to make... ^^;

Haha, you're so sweet and I'm really happy you like it! I extremely appreciate you leaving a comment with your thoughts, thank you again! :hug:

I have seen alot of people who ship Loki/Morgana which kinda makes sense if you want an evil killer couple on the loose that can destroy the world with their combined magic! but Jon/Morgana makes way more sense because I think he'd be able to reclaim the good that was once in her. and they are a gorgeous couple!!!
I could believe it! sometimes you know exactly what you're gonna do and then other times it takes forever just to get one little part right!
you're welcome! I always love to see your stuff, it is always beautiful!
