do you know in the darkest hour part 2 when lancelot and merlin went back to the knights and arthur but lancelot walked in first solely to give arthur a panic attack that merlin was dead, only to have merlin walked up five seconds later?? what assholes. what honest to god jerks. i love it. they literally planned that out. they stood outside that ruined castle, about to walk in together, but then one of them was like “wait wait wait, hang on. dude. i got an idea. everyone will go crazy.” and i am willing to bet all the money i have on this earth that it was lancelot’s idea
Remember that deleted scene where Arthur is gonna propose to Gwen, and he’s like “I’m feeling sick” and Merlin goes “Well that’s marriage for you” and then Arthur goes “I’ve made a bad decision” and Merlin goes “It’s natural to be nervous. I always get nervous when I make a decision. I start worrying about all the other options I DISCOUNTED”
Like, listen I know half the time I don’t understand why they deleted a scene, but I know why they deleted this one jfc
Arthur stood by Merlin’s side in silence, staring out the glass cabin, as the white metal skeleton of the monstrous wheel lifted them over London.
“Your kingdom, sire,” Merlin said, looking over at him with all the devotion Arthur remembered from so long ago. His words were soft and reverent, and yet they held echoes of ancient power, as if by speaking them he were gifting his king the modern city that stretched to the distant horizon.
Arthur turned to face him, shoulders pushed back, meeting Merlin’s determined gaze with one of our own. “Our kingdom,” he corrected.
Merlin smiled in response, soft and sad and full of adoration. “I don’t want the kingdom,” he said. “I only want its king.”
Arthur felt his breath catch, his throat going tight, overwhelmed again by all that Merlin was, and all that he’d done for him, both in their lives in Camelot as well as in that horrible separation that had followed.
Lifetimes, Arthur thought. Lifetimes he waited for me. And alone. Oh god, so alone-
Arthur stepped forward, cupping the sides of Merlin’s face in his hands, to gently kiss him, over and over, small soft things that told the miraculous man at his side again and again that of course Arthur was his, just as he was Arthur’s, just as it was always meant to be.
This was a stop start project over lots of months so it changes styles a lot of times -.-’ I kinda started it because I’d had the whole “Modern Merlin walks past a reincarnated Arthur” thing stuck in my head for ages but then I thought @ptelly ‘s butterfly in “Return of the King” was kinda iconic so I tortured myself some more and threw that in there :)

pounding music had been ongoing throughout the entire night since the end of
the Quidditch match, your dorm room door barely muffling the sounds of constant
laughter, chatter, and overall rowdiness. Your friends had been prettying
themselves up, hoping to at least make out with one of the boys or girls on the
team, since everyone downstairs was too drunk to care who they had a little fun
coming (Y/n)?” Your roommate giggled after taking a shot of Firewhisky.
huffed, rolling your eyes as you had stuffed up your lipstick for what had to
be the third time. “In a sec. It was probably a bad idea to start drinking
before I started my makeup, huh?”
friends laughed at your crooked grin, promising to meet you down there. You
waved them off, knowing for certain that by the time you got down there, they
would all be off getting laid.
One of my favourite things about Merlin is how everyone is like a little in love with Merlin and SUPER defensive of him, even for like the dumbest little things?? Like in Lamia when Arthur is not there to get huffy about people saying shit to Merlin, and the villager calls Merlin a boy (which he literally is, no matter what the dragon says in the opening, look at that widdle baby face)and Elyan gets all fucking offended like ‘HIS NAME IS FUCKING MERLIN’ like does everyone on this show have a crush on Merlin jfc
