So I found out that the merlin fandom was doing a fandom body swap thing. where fan artists write fan fiction and fan writers draw art.
And I found out about it like an hour ago so this little ficlet is totally written on the fly and I am sorry for any typos or editing that needs to be done but I didn’t have much time. But anyway I thought it would be easier to write a continuation of one of my AU comics.. and I chose leaf head, for no particular reason.
(screenshot of source comic, where we left off)
Anyway here is what I have written.
[Arthur/Merlin] [G with some swearing] [word count: 600 something.]
Arthur glared at the offending leaf in his hand. It felt crisp against his fingers, fragile enough to disintegrate if he applied pressure. It’s rusty red was not as red as the blush that burned across his face. He felt hot, and had an uncomfortable squirming deep in his gut he really didn’t like.
Will you be upset if I do two, because I really want two. Merthur and Morgwen, pretty please:)
I CAN DO TWO!!!!!! LET ME PROCRASTINATE ON ESSAY LOOOlMerthur:
always wins when they play Trivia Crack- Arthur because he picks up all these randoms facts from trolling the internet all day (after he’s risen again from the lake)
laughs when their partner trips on something: Merlin and Arthur. I feel like they’re both pretty clumsy at times and would make fun of each other
would drop ice down the back of the other’s shirt as a joke: MERLIN
spoils the ending of books/movies: arthur… he would just casually walk up to merlin when he’s eating breakfast one day and whisper GOT spoilers to him while merlin sputters and tries to pour his cold tea on arthur’s head because “ I’M ONLY ON THE 3RD EPISODE“
always posts a picture of the other as their MCM or WCW: merlin; he probs has a whole instagram dedicated to taking dumbass pictures of arthur and posting them (with love)
eats the last piece of cake in the fridge before the other can have it: ARTHUr
obnoxiously celebrates Monday Punday every week: ARTHUR who discovers the art of puns and spends a whole day on reddit threads finding good puns to spring on merlin the next day
makes loving hack posts on the other’s Facebook/Instagram/Tumblr/Twitter etc: Merlin- he’d post stupid tweets like “I LOVE MERLIN!! HE’S THE COOLEST!!!” and post really stupid, double chin selfies that arthur snapchats to him
has to beat their partner in every game: arthur
keeps their partner up half the night talking about random stuff: ARTHUR
eats too much garlic and tries to kiss their partner anyway; ARTHUR like they go to olive garden and arthur buys the most goddamn garlicky pasta and when they get home, he’s ready to kiss and cuddle
always wins when they play Trivia Crack: GWENNNNN unexpected knowledge bc of her documentary addictions
laughs when their partner trips on something: morgana but in a HoW CUTE ARE U sort of way
would drop ice down the back of the other’s shirt as a joke: gwen and she’ll run away giggling

Arthur was a hunter in a world full of monsters. A normal day turns into one he will always remember. He meets a vampire that looks familiar in a way he feels deep in his soul. He’s supposed to kill the vampire but he kidnaps him instead, asking him endless questions but still, he can’t recall where he’s from. Merlin, Arthur found was his name, just smirked and chuckled all the way through his questions. However, not having heard the vampire speak, he was transfixed when he said, “I’ve been waiting a long time for you, Arthur. Long enough to get turned into a vampire. Thanks for that, by the way.”
Arthur eyes widened and he whispered, “Merlin?” He ran his hands through his hair. “This isn’t real. I died, I can remember it but it feels like…” He growled. “I don’t even know.”
Merlin’s eyes rolled while simply whispering under his breath. His bonds seemed to magically break and set him free. “Oh right.” He said when he heard Arthur gasp. “I have magic too.”
