Morgana/Mithian or Merlin/Gwen for the ship thing if you are still doing it/have time/would do either? Thank you!

MORGANA/MITHIAN

1) Who kisses the other on the nose and the one receiving the kiss blushes?

Morgana likes to think she’s tough and too cool to be affected and stuff like that, and nose kisses do not fit into that narrative. but funnily enough that narrative is a damn lie, and she always blushes when Mithian swoops in to boop her nose with a kiss anyway cuz she’s secretly a giant dork who doesn’t know how to handle simple affection like that.

2) Who sits on their partner’s lap as they wrap their arms around their partners neck?

Morgana does. she tends to be the more physically forward, the one more likely to crawl across the bed to pin Mithian down with her own body and make her stop bringing work home with her. she will absolutely push her way onto Mithian’s lap regardless of what her girlfriend is trying to get done. she has found it 110% effective.

3) Who kisses the inside of their partner’s palm before reassuring them everything is going to be okay?

Mithian. it’s the sort of sweet, simple gesture she loves because it doesn’t require either of them to use their words. words don’t mean much to Morgana anyway. Mithian knows that actions speak much louder to her.

4) Who initiates the forehead touch™?

Mithian does, usually when Morgana is upset about something and working herself into a frenzy as she is wont to do when she feels like she Can’t Do Enough to fix the problem. Mithian will pull her in close, hold her gaze, shush her and pet her hair until Morgana finally takes a deep breath and slows down a little.

5) Where do they first say “I love you”?

in their bedroom, the middle of the night after several hours of athletic sex. Mithian’s long since asleep by then and Morgana’s lying awake, twirling a lock of Mithian’s hair around her finger, just watching her chest rise and fall. that’s the first time she says it, when no one can hear, cuz she knows she’d never work up the courage otherwise. she does manage to say it again in the morning, over waffles. it’s before Mithian’s had her coffee so it takes her a minute to comprehend the words, but the slow smile on her face once she does is more than enough to make Morgana glad she took the leap.

6) Who wraps their arms around their partner who is cooking?

Morgana’s not that great a cook, but she makes a damn good effort at least twice a week because she will not be one of those spoiled rich girls who can’t feed herself. she’s so stubbornly (adorably) determined to make proper meals, with that little frown on her face the whole time, that Mithian can’t help but wrap her up in her arms and kiss her cheek and tease her the whole way through.

7) Who breaks out the first aid kit when the other gets a paper cut?

Mithian. Morgana’s more likely to get herself hurt tbh and also to ignore small injuries, mostly cuz she grew up insisting she be a part of all the rough games played by Arthur and his friends. they didn’t want a girl playing with them, and that made her pretty violent lmao, and more prone to pushing herself past her limits and pretending she could feel no pain just to stick it to them. Mithian, on the other hand, thinks that’s stupid af. she had older brothers too, she reminds Morgana on a regular basis (usually with bandaids and neosporin in hand) and she never feels the need to let her wounds fester just to make a point.

8) Who cuddles up to the other on the couch?

Morgana often likes to have her hair petted, and the best way to make that happen is to put her head in Mithian’s lap and demand pets. Mithian is happy to oblige.

9) How do they hold each other when their partner asks to be held?

Morgana likes to lie on top of Mithian, an arm and a leg thrown over and her head tucked up under Mithian’s chin, Mithian’s arms around her waist and shoulders. that way she can nuzzle and hide her face and feel safe and cherished. Mithian loves being the little spoon and always threads her fingers through Morgana’s on her stomach.

10) Who picks up the other fireman style in a playful way?

Morgana is strong as hell, okay, she is more than capable of throwing her girlfriend over her shoulder and hauling her to the bedroom at every opportunity.

11) Who brings the blanket to wrap them both up in it?

Mithian is infinitely more likely to actually remember the blanket. the last time she’d let Morgana be in charge of their picnic, they’d ended up eating on the ground and getting ants in the food, lol.

12) Who falls asleep on who? What is their reaction when the other falls sleep on them?

Mithian is too stubborn (and too much of a workaholic) to admit when she’s tired, so she is very prone to falling asleep all over the house as soon as they pass 11pm. in these instances, Morgana will pick Mithian up in a much more gentle bridal carry and yet again take her to bed.

13) Who likes to be held and who likes to hold?

Morgana is cuddly as hell, despite her insistence to the contrary. she wants to wrap Mithian up in her arms and never let go. Mithian has no complaints.



MERLIN/GWEN

1) Who kisses the other on the nose and the one receiving the kiss blushes?

honestly, they both do. Merlin is slightly more prone to it, but they both totally love the sappy nose kisses shtick.

2) Who sits on their partner’s lap as they wrap their arms around their partners neck?

Gwen does. he may be skinny, but Merlin’s lap is surprisingly comfortable, and it feels wonderful to have his arms wrapped around her.

3) Who kisses the inside of their partner’s palm before reassuring them everything is going to be okay?

Merlin, to stop Gwen when she’s fretting, cleaning, fiddling with anything and everything she can to distract herself. Merlin will take her hands in his to make them stop moving, bring them to his lips, linger there. it usually takes the frenetic wind out of her sails long enough for him to actually say something that can soothe her worries.

4) Who initiates the forehead touch™?

Merlin. forehead touches, hand kisses, nose nuzzles, the works.

5) Where do they first say “I love you”?

outside in the snow. they’d started out at a fancy restaurant, trying to make a go of the whole formal dinner thing for once, but it was all so stuffy and ridiculous. they ran out halfway through (not like ran out, ran out, they paid first ofc) and found themselves in the middle of a park. Merlin tripped into a snowbank because of course he did. Gwen laughed uproariously, so when she tried to help him up he pulled her in too. it felt pretty natural to say after that.

6) Who wraps their arms around their partner who is cooking?

they take turns cooking, since they’re both pretty decent. Merlin loves wrapping himself around Gwen, holding on tight until she raps his knuckles with a spoon to get him to let go. not that that’s very effective tbh, but she doesn’t really mind having him there anyway so it’s okay. Gwen’s more likely to sit up on the countertops and help while Merlin cooks, or do some other chore in the meantime. she likes to keep busy.

7) Who breaks out the first aid kit when the other gets a paper cut?

they both do. they are equally mother-hen-ish and they totally both fuss over each other like nobody’s business, even if they’re both pretty terrible patients lol.

8) Who cuddles up to the other on the couch?

couch time is when Gwen is at her cuddliest. that’s usually when the lap-sitting happens, and the popcorn throwing, and the bitching about their days, and then more cuddling. in their defense, it’s a very comfy couch.

9) How do they hold each other when their partner asks to be held?

Gwen curls up in Merlin’s lap, being as small as possible and letting Merlin shield her from everything she doesn’t want to think about. for Merlin, they’ll both lie back on the couch with her behind him, his head on her chest and her arms around his chest.

10) Who picks up the other fireman style in a playful way?

Merlin likes to pick Gwen up as often as possible. everybody teases him about being skinnier than the rest of them, but he isn’t half as scrawny as he looks and he has no trouble at all hoisting Gwen up and carrying her around. the fact that it makes her squeal and laugh and wrap her arms around his neck is just a bonus.

11) Who brings the blanket to wrap them both up in it?

Gwen. she’s got this one really soft old blanket that’s specifically reserved for outdoorsy activities and they cannot have a picnic or a star-watch without it, it just wouldn’t be right.

12) Who falls asleep on who? What is their reaction when the other falls sleep on them?

whichever of them got up earlier that morning is almost guaranteed to fall asleep on the other halfway through couch time. that usually ends up being Merlin, but Gwen has plenty of her own overworked days. occasionally they both end up asleep, until one of them gets kicked off the couch halfway through the night and winds up wide awake and on the floor.

13) Who likes to be held and who likes to hold?

Merlin loves nothing more than having Gwen all warmth and soft in his arms. that’s his happy place.


send me ships!!

Unpopular opinion

I actually quite like Arthur and Mithian.

No, I don’t see them as soul mates like him and Gwen, or as in need of each other as Merlin and Arthur…but they are pretty damn cute together and could be super fucking happy together if they actually got married and stuff.

Of course I want Gwen back, but it’s refreshing to see Arthur in a relationship that isn’t super angsty and stuff.
