    Summary

    Arthur opens his mouth to protest but Merlin shakes his head. “I don’t know why this is so hard for you to understand, but I am destined to protect you and stay at your side. I need to be there with you. Even if you leave without me I’ll just follow after and protect you from the shadows.”

    Merlin pauses, tilting his head downwards in an uncharacteristic show of subservience. “As I have done before.”

    The last sentence is like a punch to the gut, a reminder of all the years that Arthur was blissfully ignorant of Merlin’s importance in his survival. He sucks in a breath, quiet and sudden. Merlin’s insistent loyalty into battle has always confused him. The quickening of his heart is a new symptom.

    (tl;dr Arthur finds Merlin being protective over him more arousing than it should be.)

    Summary

    spoilers for 5x03. || There's deafening silence after Uther disappears, and a moment where they just look at each other. Merlin's magic is thrumming like a tribal drum under his skin -- quickened, like his pulse -- straining to get out from his near impalement, the words "Merlin has--", and the tears in Arthur's eyes.

    Summary

    Theme park!AU. "In a land of myth and a time of magic..." are the words that boom from the speakers to welcome guests at the entrance of Camelot, a theme park dedicated to Arthurian legends. Merlin Emerson has just landed himself a job as a theater attendant at the Citadel Amphitheater - and while he's having enough trouble learning the ropes of a new job, there's a cat (that claims to be a dragon) that's talking to him about destiny. He's not quite sure what's weirder, the fact there's a talking cat or the bits about destiny.

    Summary

    To most of his subjects, Uther Pendragon is a kind and just king. To others, he is the monster that steals away their children in the night. To Arthur, he’s just the father fighting a losing battle - because there are many things his father can fight against, but a curse on his only son is not one of them.
