arthur needed merlin

This scene is even more gut wrenching than “there is no place for magic in Camelot”.  

It rips out your heart, no matter whether you think Merlin truly has faith it will happen (when you know it won’t), or whether you think Merlin is intentionally lying to himself here just to get through The Next Awful Thing Trying To Kill Arthur.

  • Arthur: Merlin?
  • Merlin: What?
  • Arthur: Where is my sword?
  • Merlin: What?
  • Arthur: Where. Is. My. Sword?
  • Merlin: I, uh, put it away.
  • Arthur: Where?!
  • Merlin: Why do you need to know?!
  • Arthur: I need it!
  • Merlin: Oh no! Don't even think about doing any of your knight crap! We've been planning this evening for two months!
  • Arthur: THE KINGDOM IS IN DANGER!!!
  • Merlin: MY SEX LIFE IS IN DANGER!!!
  • Arthur: YOU TELL ME WHERE MY SWORD IS, MERLIN! WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE GREATER GOOD!
  • Merlin: GREATER GOOD?!? I AM YOUR HUSBAND! I AM THE GREATEST GOOD YOU ARE EVER GONNA GET!!!

I need your help in… expressing… my feelings.


AU: Modern Merlin. 

  • Arthur needs help expressing his feelings for Guinevere… Again.

M: You’are such an idiot. So, I helped you and send a message to Gwen. 

A: You what!? Merlin, if you show me like a stupid sentimental person, I gonna-

M: Just trust in me, Arthur. 

Picture this

BBC beings back Merlin but in the 21st century. Every decade Arthur Pendragon is resurrected but never in the same place. Merlin is immortal and hasn’t aged since the first time Arthur died. He’s been searching for Arthur but has yet to find him. Until now.

Basically the gist would be that Arthur is resurrected again and again until he and Merlin meet again and confess their love for each other (cheesy af but it’s the outcome you all want deep down so don’t lie to me) at which point Merlin is no longer immortal so he and Arthur can die together and he doesn’t have to live without Arthur anymore. They face similar challenges to the original series but in a modern setting. Series ends with happy Merlin and Arthur living in a flat in London.

@merthured what d'you reckon?

Merlin + Arthurian quotes

He left the room and crossed the workshop to the study. Jennifer stood up. She wore a white gown with a leather bodice –silver-infused, just like his– and a holster hanging down her leg. “You look…” Arthur said, but before he could get the words out, Vivian came in the room and waved her hands. “Yes, yes, you both look wonderful and you’re full of compliments.” Robison Wells | Airships of Camelot

– I’d lay down my life for him.

Who needs sleep when you can illustrate tense scenes from Loaded March and then continue reading it? Certainly not me.

Imagine Arthur waking up today
  • Arthur: MERLIN HOW HAS SORCERY BECOME SO RAMPANT?!
  • Merlin: that's not sorcery it's a camera you dollop head
  • Arthur: ... I am still your king
  • Merlin: actually since Camelot technically no longer exists and that we no longer have a ruling monarchy... You're not.
  • Arthur: ....
  • Merlin: congratulations you're now just an average person!
  • Arthur: I don't know how to cope like this
  • Merlin: -_-'
