So, it’s my last day before I go back to sixth form (UK 2nd year college, US senior high (i think)) and:

Anyways, thank you all so much!!

Merthur AU:

He didn’t think he had a heart. Until he lost it.

St. Bride’s College, Cambridge, England 1905

Arthur Pendragon is handsome and outgoing, with blood as blue as his eyes. When he takes up a teaching post at the college where he studied, his dynamic style acts as an agent for change within the archaic institution. He also has a catalytic effect on Merlin Emrys.

Merlin is a brilliant, introverted mathematician with very little experience of life outside the university walls. He strikes up an alliance with Arthur and soon finds himself heart-deep in feelings he’s never experienced. Before long their friendship blossoms into more than either man had hoped.

Then a student is murdered within St. Bride’s. Then another… and another. All the victims have one thing in common: a penchant for men. Asked by the police to serve as their eyes and ears within the college, Arthur and Merlin risk exposing a love affair that could make them the killer’s next target.

-Anon request

“Arthur, look-” you started, once you’d settled down in a sheltered cave for the night.

“No,” he interrupted not meeting your eye. “Y/N, you’re…you…you’re a-a…”

“Dragon Lord,” you filled in. “Arthur, please don’t be angry. You’re my best friend. It’s still me, I’ll always still be me-”

Arthur rounded on you with shining eyes. “That’s not what this is about!” he snapped. “Y/N…how could you not tell me? We’ve been best friends since as long as I can remember. Why didn’t you tell me? I thought you could trust me…”

You inhaled sharply. “That’s what this is about?” Striding purposefully forward, you took his hands in yours and continued, “Arthur, I didn’t tell you because you were my best friend. You’re Uther’s son. If I told you, can you imagine the kind of danger I would be putting you in. I know you wouldn’t be able to lie to your father all the time and I didn’t want to put you in that position…”

Wrapping his arms around you in a tight hug, Arthur murmured into your neck, “Ok, but best friends means that we tell each other everything, right? So from now on, no more secrets, agreed?”

Smiling, you hugged Arthur tightly. “Agreed.”

I dried your clothes for you this time, but please keep in mind that others need to use the facilities. Also, that yellow shirt is heinous. I recommend burning.

“There is nothing wrong with this shirt,” Arthur muttered. With that thought, he hurried to his desk and snatched up a pad of Post It notes. He scribbled, Thank you for drying my clothing; you are far too kind. That shirt is a classic and makes people smile.

Merrrrrlin

Just wandered over to the Colin Morgan tag, since I hadn’t visited there in a while. I’m pleased to see that young Mr. Morgan has been doing some tv work and has a couple of films coming up, too. I’m not as swoony over the boy as I used to be, but I’m still interested in his work because I think he’s a very talented actor.

The thing that struck me, though, is how much of the tag is still Merlin photosets, gifs, and plain text posts saying, “I miss Merlin”. It hit me for the first time that for a lot of people–kids, teenagers, even people in their twenties–that show is their Arthurian canon, their first exposure to the Matter of Britain. It’s their Camelot, their Sword in the Stone, their Mists of Avalon. I was always kind of frustrated by the show because it never quite depicted the Arthur and Merlin I wanted to see, but I’m finally realizing it’s a vital piece of the legend for a lot of people. It wasn’t perfect, but it deserves love and respect for drawing new people into the tradition. (And for showing us some gorgeous, gorgeous men.)

anonymous asked:

Can you help me find a fic? In it Arthur has a harem and for a while Merlin is his favorite. He gives Merlin a choice of gifts, and Merlin always choses rags/neckerchiefs. As Arthur conquers more and more, he forgets about Merlin but Merlin holds out hope and makes a quilt out of the rags. a conquest goes bad and Arthur loses everything but Merlin goes to him and stays. Can you help me? Thanks!

Thank you to anon for finding it.

Alone In My Kings Harem

Summary: Merlin, one of Arthur’s concubines, is in for a world of heartbreak as he falls in love with him. He knew it could never be. This thing they had meant nothing for the king. That’s why he needs to extinguish the hope that’s blossoming in his heart whenever the king summons him.

Merlin and Gaius were just going about their day when a young man showed up, looking for mountain ash for some reason.

He seemed to be floored when he heard who Merlin’s Master was, but who in Camelot doesn’t know that Merlin serves Prince Arthur?

Then a surprise attack on Camelot sparks events beyond their control and it is only in the face of an old enemy they thought they’d never meet again, and discovering the powers beyond even destiny that they find their hope in one another once more.
