to save arthur's life

Honestly the whole subplots and holes jk Rowling gives us in interviews and such is great and the cursed child concept was grand but PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WHY DO WE NOT HAVE A WEASLEY FAMILY 9 POV (AUTO)BIOGRAPHY.

In HP we see mainly Ron and Ginny and that’s great but i want CHAPTERS of FRED AND GEORGES PRANKS AND TRIUMPHS AND DETENTIONS AND JUST HOW THEY FIGURED OUT TO SAY “I SOLEMNLY SWEAR I AM UP TO NO GOOD” . I want to know the full story of how Arthur and Molly met and such and why bill is so damn rock n roll. Why Charlie chose to be a dragon man (and cough cough asexually fabulous just an idea) why Percy acted like such a prick.

I want to know what Ginny wrote in that diary in the first place (bc you KNOW there’s some juicy weasley drama in there) and how Ron came to love Hermione.

I want ginnys and Charlie’s diary entries and George and Fred’s doodles on parchment. Molly’s recipes and Arthur’s blue prints for Muggle contraptions. AND RON god the freaking drama that boy has think of what he thought meeting HARRY POTTER FOR THR FIRST TIME!!!!!!Every postcard and letter and sketches and awards and EVERYTHING WE’VE BEEN ROBBED OF.

Easier than Magic

Fandom: BBC Merlin

Word count: 2143

Characters: Merlin x reader, Arthur x sister!reader, Gaius

Warnings: Fighting mentioned, near-death experience, some angsty stuff

Summary: Requested by @armin-is-a-zebra-shark. After a sorcerer curses the Pendragons, Merlin has to save your life.

Afterwards, Arthur blamed himself.

He had been leading a raid on a camp of bandits, who were responsible for terrorising Camelot’s borders. After the fight, a man rushed out of his tent, flung Arthur into a tree, and raced off.

They tracked him down, Arthur making sure to kill him, but not before he placed a curse on Camelot’s royal family. Arthur was just in time to hear the last words- “Bring the Pendragons grief!”

For days, he thought nothing would come of it. He felt fine, and as the heir to the throne, he was the obvious choice for such revenge. Perhaps the warlock’s magic had not been strong enough to affect him.

And then you fell ill.

From the Ashes

Summary: When Merlin uses magic to save Arthur’s life, he is condemned to death, and Arthur is too late to save him. But when the grief-stricken prince, along with Morgana and Gwen, journeys to Ealdor to return Merlin’s ashes, a series of strange events leads them to believe the warlock may not be as dead as they thought.

Gingerbread Men

Summary: It’s nearly Christmas time and at Merlin’s favourite coffee-shop wooing techniques get a seasonal twist.

House of Pancake

Summary: ‘I just moved in and didn’t realize how thin the walls are in this building and oh god you’ve been overhearing my horrendously embarrassing baby-talk to my cat for the past two weeks’

Playing For Keeps

Summary: Royal Philharmonic Conductor Arthur Pendragon thinks he has everything under control, until his solo violinist calls in sick the night of a major concert and he’s cumbered with a last minute substitute. The substitute in question, Merlin Emrys, is everything Arthur believes a lead violin shouldn’t be: argumentative, riotous, not properly awed by tradition. But he still catches Arthur’s eye because he plays beautifully and has an endearing way about him that’s not easily ignored. And Arthur does try to stick to that ignoring option hard.

The Sheep Whisperer

Summary: A modern romantic comedy AU. With sheepdogs.

A reluctant Arthur sets out to meet his sister in South Wales for a New Year party. But instead, the broken satellite navigation system leads him to a ramshackle cottage, a trio of sheepdog puppies, and a brush with hypothermia. Not to mention the most glorious hot chocolate Arthur has ever tasted, and happiest of all, a scruffy local farmer with killer cheekbones and a sideline in flirtatious banter.

But even as the hot chocolate thaws Arthur’s body and Merlin’s clumsy flirting melts his heart, dark clouds are amassing on the horizon…

So @arthur-tristan-kingsmen and I were talking about headcanons and if we’re going with the idea that the shock from the van knocked Arthur out, that leaves some kinda hilarious implications

me: hey arthur finally gets to sleep :D
thanks Lewis!

Tristan: lol yes
his plan all along

me: at least he stopped the van so Arthur didn’t fall asleep at the wheel
plot twist: lewis saved his life instead of took it :V

Tristan: lol perfect

You know, along with the gag that in every video Lewis ends up in a situation where if he wasn’t already dead, he probably would have died, I would like a gag where Lewis keeps inadvertently saving Arthur’s life instead of taking it :V


Do you think I sit around and do nothing?! I haven’t had a chance to sit around and do nothing since the day I arrived in Camelot, I’m too busy running around after Arthur - do this Merlin, do that Merlin - and when I’m not running around after Arthur, I’m doing chores for you and if I’m not doing that, I’m fulfilling my destiny - do you know how many times I’ve saved Arthur’s life? I’ve lost count - do I get any thanks? No - I have fought griffins, witches, bandits, I have been punched, poisoned, pelted with fruit, and all the while I have to hide who I really am because if anyone finds out, Uther will have me executed. Some times I feel like I’m being pulled in so many directions I don’t know which way to turn!

Kilgharrah didn’t care about Arthur, think about it:

  • He had no reason to care for the son of his enemy
  • He never met him
  • The prophecy of succeeding could’ve been made up because magic was never returned to Camelot
  • Arthur didn’t want to allow magic back because of the values Uther taught him
  • Arthur didn’t give a shit about all the dragons or Kilgharrah, so why should he?
  • In the end, Kilgharrah didn’t even try to save Arthur’s life and he died right in front of Merlin, perfect revenge if you ask me

“Do you know how many times I’ve saved Arthur’s life? I’ve lost count. Do I get any thanks? No. I have fought griffins, witches, bandits, I have be punched, poisoned, pelted with fruit, and all the while I have to hide who I really am, because if anyone finds out, Uther will have me executed!”


The third new artificial personality created by David Haller, Arthur was created as a personality due to David almost drowning in the ocean after being thrown overboard on a government ship by a secret task force that hunts down & experiments on mutants. David did not know how to swim & struggled to keep himself afloat or even alive. David then remembered reading about one of his favourite heroes ‘Aquaman’ & was then created in his mind causing his life to be saved as Arthur took over Davids body bringing him to shore. Arthur resided in Davids mind for a few months before an ‘event’ caused Arthur to break free out from Davids mind & manifest into the real world. Right now Arthur Curry is trying to find his rightful place in the world currently living in secret as a fisherman. Arthur even though is a personality manifested by David still has the same personality, traits, abilities & mind of Arthur Curry from the comics & other sources of media that David grew up reading & watching as a boy. Abilities  Atlantean physiology grants superhuman strength, stamina, endurance, durability, reflexes, agility, senses, and healing. Aquaman also boasts telepathy and mind control extending to aquatic life. ( fc will be jason momoa. )
