Headcanon where Merlin knows that Harry is alive and has been in contact with him for sometime telling him to stay put until he is sure it is safe to bring him back to London.
One day, Eggsy goes missing while on a mission and Merlin has to contact Harry to tell him that Eggsy’s signal went down somewhere over the Pacific Ocean because Eggsy, at the beginning of his training, wrote Harry’s name on his body bag to insure that if something bad happened to him, his mother would never have to know.
Harry is devastated to find out that Eggsy has gone missing, and even more so when Merlin tells him the signal has been offline for almost a week and that he doesn’t think Eggsy’s still alive.
Harry cuts the call with Merlin, falling quickly into a deep, morbid depression taking off his glasses to cry into his hands before a loud slam would bring him out of his slump as a feverishly furious Eggsy would kick in his door with a growling demand that Merlin shouldn’t keep his browser open if he didn’t want people to find out Harry was alive.
Eggsy anger would quickly melt away at the site of Harry’s tears, both men embracing the other so tightly they both would almost be unable to catch their breaths before Harry would reconnect the call with Merlin,
“I’ve recovered Eggsy’s body, Merlin. I’ll bring him home after further inspection.”
Human beings are funny. They long to be with the person they love but refuse to admit openly. Some are afraid to show even the slightest sign of affection because of fear. Fear that their feelings may not be recognised, or even worse, returned. But one thing about human beings that puzzles me the most is their conscious effort to be connected with the object of their affection even if it kills them slowly within.

#272. A while after Cia’s defeat, Zelda sent a ‘get well soon’/'sorry for pummeling you like five separate times, we didn’t know you were being mind controlled’ offering to Volga of some of the kingdom’s finest goats and cows. He pretends it didn’t mean anything to him but really he couldn’t stop grinning for a week straight- Do you know how hard it is to get some good steak in an active volcano?
