 asked you: Doodle request: Arthur wrapping Merlin in his cape and kissing him? :3

UH. This is totally what you were thinking RIGHT? (no) My first foray into Manga Studio! As far as the lines go at least, color was added in Photoshop.

 asked you: Would you draw Merlin & Arthur as children? You can even give Merlin mini-court-sorcere-robes!? Totally seconding Needlework btw.

Sort of a re-do of the previous request because I figured it’d be rlly cute ^_^

This was my Merlin Hols gift for Nympha_Alba :)

Arthur is injured during an ambush, and he and Merlin are separated from the rest of the knights. They seek shelter in an old abandoned cabin that has long been used by the Pendragons on extended hunts. Trapped there by the storm Arthur finally reveals his feelings for Merlin.

This is on AO3 here

“So I hold it like this?”

“…no”

Inspired by THIS post! P.S. for more musical boys check out this awesome drawing by ancienttec :)
