[…]“Go to sleep,” Arthur told him softly.

“Yes, my lord,” Merlin said.  And then he slid his fingers between Arthur’s, to clasp his hand.

Arthur pressed his forehead into the back of Merlin’s neck, covering Merlin’s fingers with his own, before lowering their hands to rest upon the cot.

It took some time before Merlin’s breathing calmed. Longer still before he fell asleep.

Arthur knew it did, because he spent the entire time paying attention to how it felt to have Merlin pressed so closely against his body.[…]

@nielution nah the only angst i’ve read in omgcp was like? one where nursey gets drugged on a date and the team does their best to help him out/rescue him it’s good shit

that and the one that’s updating currently? it’s about dex being pissed off about sharing the room and nursey is really, REALLY fucking hurt by it and the fact that they’re not dismissing nursey’s feelings but are instead making those feelings the driving force behind the fic? got me #NUTTING but that’s the only angst i’ve really read

most omgcp angst is shitty shock value ‘bitty gets outed’ fic which is shit and i hate it but yeah ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ if you find any other good angst for this fandom you should hmu too tbh

So the days stayed much the same as they had been, and the nights – well, the nights left them bruised, and sated, and wrung-out, and baggy-eyed. They didn’t talk about the future. It loomed before them, oppressive and terrible, an elephant in the middle of their small room which each of them was determined to ignore. Instead they wrung every last drop of enjoyment out of their days – and if their love-making took on a desperate edge at times, or they clung a little too tight in the aftermath – well, neither of them acknowledged it.

Today I said to my sister, “you know, we should just watch season 5 episode 13 one more time” and she was like “nooooo why would we do that??!” and I replied “because it’s literally the ONLY episode in which Arthur knows about Merlin’s magic” and the truth of my own words hurt me so badlyyyyyy; and then I said “I just want to see Merlin use his magic right in front of Arthur’s nose” and “we’ll just stop right after the forehead touch!”

Because we all know that Arthur lives and he and Merlin lead a happy, strong, fighting side-by-side kind of life together

Ya know bisexual characters can be…bisexual….you don’t gotta write them in fanfic like they’ve been Straight™ all their life but this One Person is the exception….like I know it’s wild….but their partner doesn’t have to be the only person of the same sex they’ve ever Noticed™ ever

a quick post: do not use the term ‘sin’ or whatever the fuck to refer to LGBT couples in fan fiction or cannon or anything just don’t do that to young LGBT kids who see themselves in those characters and don’t do that to all the LGBT people who have been shunned and attacked with religion as an excuse I don’t care if you think it’s funny and I don’t care if you don’t think it’s offensive and I literally!!!!! do not care about the feelings of straight people over LGBT people!!!! and!!! I never will!!!!
