    Summary

    “I’m afraid I won’t be coming with you,” Merlin said, turning to face Arthur.
    Arthur stared at him, his brow furrowed with confusion. A flicker of hurt fluttered through his eyes and Merlin felt on the verge of tears as he saw the betrayed look on his friends face.
    “Not this time,” Merlin continued, even as he felt like the world was crashing down around him. “I’m sorry.”

     

    A rewrite of the scene where Merlin tells Arthur he won't be going to Camlann with him, except he decides to tell Arthur the truth about why.

    Summary

    For my Merlin Bingo: Snowed in.

    When Arthur and Merlin visit Queen Elena's castle, their stay gets prolonged by un unexpected storm.
    It's a cold night and, like all servants when they travel with their lords, Merlin sleeps on the floor next to Arthur's bed.
    Arthur feels guilty, Merlin is a cheeky fucker and they're both hopelessly in love with each other. What else is new?

    ...

    Or, the author saw a post on tumblr that said that servants slept next to their lord's bed when visiting other castles and she couldn't resist writing about it.

    Summary

    “I can't be with you, Arthur.”
    It wasn't the first time Arthur had heard those words. They were familiar in the same way that funerals were.

     

    Aka: the one in which Gwen rejects Arthur's proposal, because she knows there is someone else Arthur loves. (Also she loves Morgana, but that's beside the point lmao).
    He needs a while to realize whom she is talking about

    Summary

    "Did you bring me flowers, Merlin?"

    "Uh, no?”

    Arthur gestured to a spot on the table behind him. “What’s that, then?”

    Merlin slowly twisted around to see what he was pointing at, dread curling in his gut. Primly placed on the tabletop was a bouquet of red roses.

    “Er, someone else must have left them there. I have no idea where they came from,” Merlin lied awkwardly.

    As if on cue, a rose fell out of his jacket pocket and Merlin's stomach dropped a thousand feet beneath the ground.

    OR

    It's Yuletide, the newly appointed Court Sorcerer of Camelot is pining and his magic decides to do something about it.

    Summary

    “It has its roots in a legend from the east, sire. I believe it’s called the red string of fate.”

    “Fate?” Arthur said incredulously. “What, is he going to be the one to kill me?”

    “Getting more likely by the minute,” Merlin supplied.

    “Shut up, Merlin.”

    Gaius held up a weary hand. “Legend has it that the string connects people to the person with whom they are most compatible.” There was a beat of silence.

    “You have got to be kidding me.”

    Summary

    "I've been in here since almost as soon as you came in." His nonchalant voice only made Merlin feel worse. Arthur had probably already decided his method of death- straight to the pyre. He failed his destiny, failed everyone. "Speaking of which, if you're both going to discuss treason, at least make sure no one else can hear you."
