“The neighbours think Aithusa is a very cute cat that loves a cuddle, but also a a very weird one that doesn’t really meow right. If only they knew what it was they were putting their hands on an almost daily basis.”
The quick animation & style study that got way out of hand, grew legs of its own and somehow became this.
Modern AU where kitty!Aithusa isn’t really a cat at all, Arthur is mildly (very) obsessed with mobile games and Merlin should have known better than to bring the crystal to the bedroom dammit
This is one of the first times where Merlin feels like he’s truly failed Arthur. He’s 99.99% he was to late, but when he notices Arthur’s breathing stabilizes. So much relief washes over him.
I think Colin did a really good job in this scene.
