Gwaine’s relationship with Merlin is/was so underappreciated and heartbreaking. Like, here’s this man who absolutely would risk anything for his only friend who he loves, but is always overlooked because Merlin has give so much attention to Arthur, yet Gwaine totally understands and would still do anything for Merlin. That’s friendship. That’s love.
❝Arriving at the Globe in a beanie, baggy coat and bulky backpack on a chilly Thursday morning, Morgan has none of the attitude you might expect from a prime-time TV star […].

Remember when Uther died and when Arthur opened the door the next morning he found Merlin sitting on the floor outside and he asked if he’d been there all night and Merlin said, and I quote, “I didn’t want you to feel that you were alone.” Remember how Merlin ended up spending the rest of his life alone. Remember that.
