The unmistakable gleam of pride in Arthur’s eye was tinged with the tiniest bit of admiration, and it straightened Merlin’s spine, made him want to charge back out and do it all again, just for the smile on Arthur’s face.
“Well done,” Arthur said, as they walked toward the kitchens, and Merlin paid no mind to the bone-deep aches and pains the week had wrought. Arthur’s praise was worth all of it, and more.
I’m sending this letter on with Harry because I’m sure he’ll know when the best time to give it to you is.
Well done. Your loyalty is something I know Harry and I are Kingsman will be glad to have. I’m very proud of y
In future, trust your gut. You were the only one to notice the drug in the champagne, even though the others surely have more experience with how it should have tasted. You knew and when you’re on missions, trust yourself and use it.

Maybe, if you’re convincing enough, you can get Harry to share a few more of our letters with you. Ask him about the ones he sent (to the house, but addressed to me) from his mission to Argentina. I nearly blew the first one up when half a dozen dead butterflies fell out.
I’m sorry I can’t be there with the both of you tonight. We can’t take any chances now that the end is in sight. But after the test, once Arthur’s said his peace and the paperwork is done, I’ll excuse myself and meet the two of you at home. It might be the right time for that conversation.
Sry a continuation from my merlin religion or gay anon. Like for merlin and morgana it's like something they can't change and it's part of them and accepting it as part of them. Like it's not something they can change. That's what I meant by saying they act like it's a sexuality.
totally understand! and i think you’re completely right. and i think the series showed different magicians dealing with their magic in different ways. merlin was hiding it, morgana was angry and scared at first and then embraced it, mordred was proud of his magic…… i think all these responses can be seen as how lqbt people respond to their sexuality within our society. like i said, there’s a lot of compelling evidence to support this, imo.
