    Summary

    Written for Bottom Arthur fest (November 2020).

    *-*
    Arthur has had a complicated relationship with Gaius’ new assistant from the very start. You could say they definitely started off on the wrong foot after Merlin confronted him in the courtyard for tormenting Morris during his knife-throwing practice. Merlin had been cheeky to the point of insolence and courageous to the point of stupidity, and Arthur had thrown him into the dungeon with utmost satisfaction after fending off Merlin’s hilariously bad swing. Frustratingly enough, Arthur hadn’t been able to stop thinking about Merlin after that.

    Summary

    It wasn’t until the door had shut behind them and they were halfway to the car that he realised Freya was giggling beside him.

    “Daddy, you kissed Merlin.”

    “What?” Arthur said, frowning down at her.

    And then the bottom of his stomach dropped out.

    An extremely tired Arthur makes a terrible mistake with the childminder. Unless Merlin doesn't mind, of course...

    Summary

    "Gaius sighed, 'That’s the problem, my boy. It’s so rare that it hasn’t been seen in over a generation. The only account I could find was limited. The patient had fallen in love with a married man who did not love her, and she had started to develop a cough that had produced flowers rather than mucus. A post-mortem examination found that a flower had magically planted itself in the woman’s lungs and had wrapped around her heart.'"

    In which Merlin develops Hanahaki disease, but mysteriously does not die from it.

    Summary

    Merlin exhales a soft laugh, hoarse and relieved all at once. He shakes his head before brushing his lips over Arthur’s once more, then trails them over his cheek to his ear. “Then let me take care of you?” he asks again, and another shiver travels down his back.

    “Please,” he presses out, his voice cracking over the word and closer to a plea than he has ever heard it. He doesn’t have it within himself to care, has never been more certain in the conviction that Merlin will take all the brittle pieces of him and still find worth in them.


    The crown weights heavy on his head, well-known self-doubts taking their toll. Arthur would never expect Merlin to shoulder some of the burden, but then, Merlin has never been one for doing what's expected of him.

    Summary

    No magic comes without a cost.
    Merlin knows. He knows he might be unable to pay this time.
