jesus those legs

anonymous asked:

Merlahad, for the ask meme :)

Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!  I was really hoping someone would ask me this:

002 | send me a ship and I will tell you:

When or if I started shipping it.  I think I starting shipping it as soon as Merlin called Harry “sir” when Harry had dropped Eggsy off for the Lancelot trials.  Not that I believed it was anything more than an acknowledgment that Harry was his operational superior, but the word just clicked.  Because there was no fucking way that Merlin was anything less than a Dom in any relationship.  You’d have to climb the Hillary Step (the last point before summitting Mt. Everest) to get a leg over Merlin.

My thoughts.  Sometimes, I have no thoughts, just brain goo at the idea of those legs wrapping themselves around Harry.  And then I look at Harry and thing, jesus fuck, those LEGS.  (I tend to tag pics of Colin and Mark as “Leggsy”.)  

See:


What makes me happy about them.  They are ADULTS.  They may behave like children (well, I think Harry behaves like a child more often than Merlin) but they know they are adults and generally treat each other as adults.

What makes me sad about them.  That Merlin thought Harry was dead and he grieved and grieved and grieved.  That he probably obsessed over every wasted moment.  That Harry didn’t remember Merlin at all.

Things done in fanfic that annoys me.  I don’t think I’ve read a bad Merlahad fic, but in general I get really annoyed when Harry thinks of Merlin as the “Tech Wizard”.  Or the “Bald Man”.  Or anything other than “my husband”, “my lover” or best and most simply “Merlin”.  The former makes me backbutton so hard that I wish AO3 had a warning for “epithets”.

Things I look for in fanfic.  Other than the lack of epithets, I want a story with plenty of gratuitous sex.  Merlin as an occasional switch, Harry as a frequent switch.  Or just lovely domesticity.  And lots of sex.

My kinks.  Seriously, anything at this point.  The Bespoke series has ruined me in the best possible way.

Who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other:  I’m perfectly happy with either Harry or Merlin ending up with Eggsy.  I’m not really sold on Merlin/Roxy or Harry/Roxy because I think that Roxy is a lesbian.

My happily ever after for them:  Happy spy husband who retire and raise Scottish Deer Hounds and Cairn Terriers.  Eggsy is their perpetually naked houseboy.
