Why I ship Arthur/Freya


Imagine this scenario. Imagine Arthur finding Freya after Merlin helps her escape. He knows that, according to his father, what he should see is someone capable of terrible deeds. What he should see is someone who has chosen the evils of magic.

But he doesn’t. Instead, he sees a young, innocent girl; a victim.

So he helps her, gives her food, protects her, does all the things Merlin did in the episode (minus the magic). He realises that, hey, maybe all those who practice magic aren’t evil. Obviously Freya isn’t evil.

So then, the beast emerges at night, and Arthur leads the knights against her. He injures her, then follows her back and realises what he’s done. He takes her out to the lake and says, “I’m so sorry, I didn’t mean to.” and she’s like, “You don’t need to be sorry. You’ve saved me blah blah blah you’ve made me feel loved,” and “one day I will be there for you and I will help you in your time of need.” Then she dies and he gives her a viking’s funeral like Merlin did. 

Then, when Morgana takes over the castle, Merlin’s all like, “You need to go to the lake of avalon this glass of water told me" and Arthur’s like, "Por que?" and Merlin’s like, "Just do it asshole."

So Arthur goes to the lake and Freya’s there and she gives him the sword. 

Basically, I see a lot of potential for character development through a relationship between the two. Arthur would see that not all people who practice magic have chosen it or wish evil with it (I know Merlin could show him that as well), and Freya would willingly help Arthur and learn to trust him and see that he’s not like his father.

there’s so much more I wish I could say and express about this but how do you words and eloquence. 

This probably made no sense.

"Freya," he whispered, slowly taking in the incredible sight before him, the face he had thought was just a distant memory.

"I’ve missed you." She smiled her own special smile, the one he loved, the one just for him. She stood in front of him, knee-deep in the lake, a long sword resting in her hands. 

He wanted to speak, say how much he had missed her too, but he could find no words. 

"I swore one day I would repay you," Freya continued, "and now that time has come. This sword was forged in the dragon’s breath. Only it has the power to slay Morgana’s army. It was made for you, Arthur." 

He reached out his hands, taking the sword with one, feeling its perfect balance. She was right, it was made for him.

He then grasped her hand with his other and held tight, for hers was a hand he had wished for so long to hold once more.

I decided to do something based on my Why I ship Arthur/Freya post, where I presented an AU in which Arthur was the one who fell in love with Freya. This is the result.
