i sometimes like to look at this scene as a sort of au!magic reveal. like that arthur knew - that arthur always knew, and merlin knew that arthur knew but neither of them ever voiced it. it never was brought up between them because if they brought it up it meant that arthur would then have to do something about it, something that he didnt want to do like banish merlin or worse see him dead. so this whole time arthur knew and they never brought it up, but then suddenly ghost!uther does, and they’re forced to face it for this single moment of merlin looking at arthur wondering what he’s going to do, if he’s going to say anything but instead arthur just looks at merlin and they have one of those silent conversations that they always seem to have and arthur is saying “its okay, merlin it’s okay i know. it doesnt matter” and merlin is flooded with relief and love for this stupid man so he can only say “thank you thankyouthankyou” in return
Hurr durr, I´ve just picked out a ton of faces for a bunch of hetalians for a roleplay, which basically is just me ignorantly as broken pencil googling my way forward so please feel free to let me know who anyone is or so!

Request: Merlin and Reader like each other and
Gwen convinces Arthur to try and help get them together. (Like I said, if you
want more details, I will gladly give them…but you sounded like you were okay
with it as is for now, so… Just, if you change your mind, let me know :) )
Can I have a
fluffy merlin oneshot where merlin asks Arthur to help him ask the reader out
and they plan a really cute date and everything goes wrong but the reader still

Weaving his way around the crowds was
Merlin. He kept running errands for Arthur and it was easy to tell that he was
getting flustered. I sighed and turned to face Gwen. I had helped her dress
after bringing breakfast up. Now, she was sitting at the table eat.
“Is there anything else, Your Majesty?”
“That will be all (Y/N). I think merlin
could do with your help.” She smiled and I could feel my face going red with
“Yes ma’am. Please let me know if there
is anything I can do.” I gave her a small curtsey before leaving her room.
Making my way down to the courtyard, I grabbed
a helmet that fallen out of Merlin’s arms. I watched as he struggled with the
rest of the armour. I couldn’t help but smirk.
“Now, shouldn’t Arthur wear a helmet with
the rest of his armour?” I asked catching Merlin’s attention. He whirled around
and caused some of the armour to fall out of his arms.
“Do you need a basket?” I questioned.
“Yes! Please!” He let his shoulders sag.
With a smile, I quickly ran to get a basket for Merlin. When I returned, I helped
Merlin place the armour into the basket. A lock of my hair fell in front of my
face. Before I could brush it away, Merlin did it for me. I smiled at him and
he smiled back.
“T-thanks.” I stuttered.
“I should be thanking you.” Merlin said standing.
“Where’s Arthur?” I asked.
“Gwen wanted to talk to him.”
“Ah. So, do you have anything else you
need help with? Maybe some things I can help you with?”
“Yes, there are some things. Doesn’t
Gwen need you?”
“She’ll let me know.” I shrugged my
shoulders. Merlin siled and took one handle of the basket and I took the other.
“(Y/N), I have a question.” Merlin
began. “Are you doing anything later?”
“I don’t think I am. Why?”
“Nothing. I was just wondering.”
“Maybe we can spend-”
“Merlin! I told you to bring the armour
an hour ago!” Arthur yelled. I glanced at the dark haired boy.
“It was ten minutes ago.” Merlin
“I don’t care.”
“You’re being awfully harsh, You’re
Highness.” I pointed out to Arthur. He stopped and looked at me and Merlin.
“I need the armour. And (Y/N), Gwen is
looking for you.” Arthur told me. I sighed.
“I will see you later.” I told Merlin. He
bid me goodbye before leaving as I did.
Tending to Gwen was interesting. Mainly because
everything that she had me do was in her room. Sewing clothes, cleaning random stains,
organising things for her. Occasionally Merlin would come in to do things for
Arthur so we would talk. And flirt. It was only a little bit like giving each
other compliments to one another. Just stuff that made each other blush.
“(Y/N), are you busy?” Merlin asked me
at the end of the day. I sighed and shook my head wearily. “I know you’re
tired, but I hope this is worth it.” Merlin held his hand out and I took it
without arguing. Following him out of the palace into a courtyard, I stopped
when I saw a table with candles and food.
“What’s going on?” I asked.
“Well, Gwen persuaded Arthur to give me
the night off. And she persuaded the kitchens to make us dinner. If that’s
okay.” He looked at me worried.
“It’s perfect!” I threw my arms around
his neck and hugged him. He hugged me back. Looking at him, I realised we were
close enough for our noses to brush against each other’s. I smiled and kissed
Merlin. He smiled against my lips and his arms tightened around my waist. This was perfect.
I know men friendship, I see it everyday. I have dude friends, my two brothers have friends, CLOSE friends. And while neither of them have held one while he was dying, I’m pretty sure that none of them would have hold their face close like Merlin did, OR for the love of fucking GOD, GENTLY PUT THEIR HAND ON TOP OF THE OTHER’S AND DELICATELY RUBBING IT LIKE FREAKING ARTHUR DOES TO MERLIN. This is almost romantic, this is sweet and loving, and tender, it’s no friendship here. Arthur is dying okay, but he’s still aware of what he’s doing. He asks Merlin to hold him and he touch his hand so softly, this is so beautifully romantic and loving that it hurts even more than the freaking scene itself.
Well I just wanted to say it. This needed to come out. :)
