    Summary

    There comes a point in every relationship where the mystery is gone. Where you've, really, done just about everything. In Merlin's opinion, that point in his and Arthur's relationship came right about the time Arthur married Guinevere.

    Summary

    Arthur is sleeping, soundly, one arm firmly secured around Merlin’s waist underneath a deliciously warm down-stuffed blanket when the first townsperson goes missing. In fact, he is still sleeping, a small puddle of drool soaked into his pillow, when a member of the guard frantically has the lord chamberlain wake the king, gibbering nonsensically about a “giant hog rutting through the village” and “the baker’s girl is gone missing, too, but giant hog.” The puddle has become something of a small lake when the rapping begins on Arthur’s door, and he wakes to a series of just-rising thoughts.

    Summary

    Arthur was sure that he'd heard somewhere that only idiots could get colds in the summer. Something about the weather and germs and spreading, but he hadn't paid much attention. Right now, he rather wished he had, if only so he could hold it over Merlin's head after he managed to make Gwen's ancient, dented can opener pry open the can of soup he'd found lurking in the back of her and Merlin's cupboards.

    Summary

    There were a great number of things that Arthur would never tell his father. It was equal only to the number of reasons that he kept them secret, really. When he stopped to think about them, he was generally awed by how many of them stemmed from petty arguments he'd had with Morgana, which led into childish displays of betting or shows of power. Someday, they would get over that, or one of them would finally just give in and kill the other. Arthur wasn't holding out for which was the likelier outcome. (In later months, Arthur had seen that list added to by things that he and Merlin had gotten into, and, really, Arthur had absolutely abysmal luck in choosing people with whom to associate.)

    Summary

    Like any good British boy, Arthur had grown up on the movies, the sit-coms, and the dime store novels (or maybe just the TV dramas of the dime store novels) about the average young man or woman being contacted one day by a stuffy lawyer with news of the passing of an aged, extended relative who left some sort of huge, previously unknown inheritance. So, of course, when a Mr. Gerard Legrace, of Legrace and Campbell, appeared on his doorstep to tell him about his great uncle Lord Pendragon and to have him sign this form, please, Arthur burst out laughing.

    Summary

    If there's one thing that Merlin both loves and hates about the winter months, it's the tendency to feel lethargic, eat a lot, and exercise not at all. When there's snow all around and resident princes are crabby with the weather and really cold chain mail, Merlin's blankets are incredibly warm and magic is an excellent agent for warming up yesterday's leftovers. It's so tempting, some days, to spend all of his free time lying around like a bump on a log.

    Summary

    Being his manservant, Merlin has seen Arthur in many varying states of dress. Formal, battle, cleaning, bathing, religious -- Merlin has dressed and undressed Arthur for almost every ceremony and circumstance that he can imagine.

    Summary

    [spoilers] When Arthur thought about it, he knew many things had changed in the past year. Morgana had left, a change that had not ripped the kingdom apart as physically as many of the others, but one that left it just as limping and damaged. Following the horrifying series of events that it had, it had been the one to almost break what remained of his hope.

    Summary

    Merlin's not particularly sure why Arthur gives him a kitten for Christmas. (Actually, Merlin would question if the kitten was really a Christmas present at all if Arthur hadn't given it to him by holding out the kitten in question and saying, "Merry Christmas, Merlin.") When he asks, Arthur replies, "You know, Merlin, it's usually considered rude to ask questions about the gifts you receive."

    Summary

    Arthur has an excellent sense of direction. Merlin knows this like he knows about his own magic: it's inarguable, something that cannot be unknown, once known. And Merlin certainly knows. Arthur's sense of direction has gotten them out of more situations than Merlin would really like to admit -- situations where magic would help, yes, but not if Merlin couldn't figure out where to use that magic.

    Summary

    Merlin knows that there are a lot of aspects of manly knighthood that he'll probably never understand. For instance, hitting people when they've accomplished something. Maybe this is just a sign of the lack of real male influence in Merlin's childhood, but he'd not entirely sure why men feel the need to bruise one another to show approval. Injury is another. If the injury is any less than I'm-going-to-need-a-week's-bed-rest, it can be walked off (or at least the knight can pretend to walk it off while getting manly medical aid elsewhere).

    Summary

    Merlin was never really sure how the knights kept warm enough on the cold, snowy patrols that Arthur insisted were necessary, in spite of the unwritten rule that real fighting -- the kind that needed knights -- didn't happen in winter.

    Summary

    The first time it happened, Arthur took it in stride. Merlin had finished his morning chores and was preparing to leave when, at the door, he turned back to Arthur and said, "Arthur, when you really mean what you're saying, you're a very good speaker. For speeches and things, I mean." After saying this, apparently randomly, Merlin smiled and left.

    Summary

    Arthur was always surprised when he considered the things that people could get used to. Magic, for one thing. It had taken time, and effort, but now it was just another fact of life. In the end, the amount of time it had taken was worth the normalcy that replaced his trepidation.

    Summary

    Gwen was the first to find out, on accident. Later, Merlin wouldn't remember even what it was that she had seen, only that she had. She accepted him, because he was Merlin, friend, and that was what Gwen did. It was a relief for her to know, because it meant that not all of Camelot could see his magic as evil. Gwen kept Merlin's secret as her own, and their days continued.
