    Summary

    “Where did you learn to do that?” Gwaine asked, following Merlin up the bank.
     
    “This is how normal people fish,” Merlin replied dryly. “Not trying to stab them with swords.”

    “This is a knife,” Gwaine retorted, sounding every bit as sulky as he felt.

    “Still, you didn’t catch a fish.”

     
    ------------------------------------------------------

    Gwaine saves a young Merlin from a beating and ends up with a new little brother to take care of on his travels.

    Or, what would Merlin be like if he had Gwaine influencing him over his formative years?

    Summary

    "One more word out of you, and I swear to God I will send you into exile."
    He knows it’s not the pyre, knows there’s much worse, but banishment would mean staying away from Arthur forever – and, as pathetic as that might sound, he thinks he would rather die than let that happen. It is clear that the feeling is not reciprocated, clear that in Arthur’s eyes, he will never come first. There’ll always be people coming before him, and he’s made peace with that long ago – but if even Agravaine can come before him, then anyone could, no? Anyone could replace him. Call Merlin a traitor and have Arthur get rid of him. Anyone could.

    Merlin no longer feels safe in Camelot.

     

    or:
    Arthur threatens Merlin of banishment.
    To Arthur's eyes, it's all forgotten.
    To Merlin's, however...
    Well, let's just say that his faith in their mutual destiny, once unwavering, finds itself faltering at a dangerously quick rate.

    Summary

    “Is it really that hard to admit you like me?" Merlin can't help the giddy laugh that escapes his mouth. "Just say it!”

    Arthur whips back around. “I can’t!” he says loudly, and his voice rings sharp as a blade through the air. The lines of his face are not the careless lines of humour Merlin had expected; his features are braided with anguish and decision, warring with one another, and the smile drops from Merlin’s face.

    "Arth--"

    “How can I admit that I think about you all the time? Or that I care about you more than anyone? How can I admit that I don’t know what I’ll do if any harm comes to you?” Arthur rakes a frustrated hand through his hair, watching Merlin as though he expects him to drop everything and run.
