    Summary

    "If you'd been lectured by my father for four hours on your thirteenth birthday about all the many disasters that occur to a realm when you muddy the succession with bastards, you wouldn't have been very quick to dive into bed with the nearest servant girl, either," Arthur muttered.

    Summary

    “What is this, Merlin?” he said forcefully.

    Merlin jumped before freezing in place, the pile of clothes falling to the floor and his eyes returning to their normal blue.

    “Merlin,” he snapped, wanting a response.

    Merlin dropped to his knees, his breaths quickly becoming ragged. “Please, I’m sorry, sorry, so sorry, please,” he begged, “Please, I can’t- I don’t- please, please, Arthur, I don’t wanna burn! Please, pleasepleaseplease…”

    Summary

    "Really?" Arthur asked, brushing the dirt off of him as he glowered at the man. "Again? I had it under control - and we aren't allies!" He added heatedly. Balinor shrugged, looking nonplussed by Arthur's anger as he stroked the dragon's wing.

    "I know." Balinor said simply. "But I promised my son I wouldn't let you die."

    "Your...You have a son?" Arthur demanded. Again, Balinor shrugged. "Why does your son...? Nevermind. Don't save me again!" He snapped, pointing a finger at the man. He turned to stalk back to the horse only for a column of fire to blow past him. The prince jumped. He spun around to tell the man off again but immediately noticed one of the remaining bandits who had been slowly creeping towards him burnt to a crisp. He looked back at Balinor.

    "Sorry."

    Or

    Balinor lives. Arthur will do pretty much anything to get the man to stop saving his life.

    Summary

    Arthur watched, unable to fully comprehend the events that had seemingly just crashed and burned in front of him rather than calmly unfold. He turned to look at the other knights who only shrugged as Mordred sank lower into his seat, lips pressed into a pout as he picked at his food.

    “I…” He started and paused, taking a moment to gather his thoughts “Why do you want Merlin to like you so badly?” He finally sighed. Mordred stopped playing with his food, glancing up before looking at the door the servant in question had exited through

    “Because he’s Merlin.” He said as if that provided any sort of answer.

    Arthur didn’t deserve this. He did his best to be a good person. Maybe this was some kind of divine intervention saying he needed to up his charity game. He needed to give the lower town a bigger tax break or something. Perhaps ride out and save three more damsels than usual.

    "He has a point," Gwaine piped up as he inhaled another mead "He is Merlin."

    Or
     
    Merlin hates Mordred and Mordred is determined to put an end to that. Arthur is convinced that this child is after his man.
