Are Merlin and Arthur really as gay as tumblr makes them seem?
Well, consider this:
Merlin knows a spell that can basically pants someone
He uses this spell on arthur
and then wrestles him to the ground in a room full of people
that’s right, the greatest sorcerer to ever walk the planet earth decides that the best plan of action in order to get some keys off of arthur’s pants is to magically create a spectacle where he needs to manhandle the king while his trousers are at the floor.
You couldnt have maybe, idk, magically put a stain on his pants that made him want to change them? waited until he wasnt iN THE MIDDLE OF A MEETING AND LIFTED THEM OFF WITH MAGIC WHILE HE WAS DISTRACTED?
like look at his face right before he does it
NO SHAME AT ALL JFC MERLIN I THINK YOU ENJOY THIS

and that’s just one in maybe 219038902183 instances of ridiculous homoerotic subtext
