I am kind of loving every single gratuitous Arthur is topless, Merlin's in his room scene in almost every episode.
And now we get a bath scene? It's like all my Christmases have come at once.
Merlin's quizzical little face! EEEEE!
Arthur protecting Merlin, n'awww. Because he's 'his' and he has his absolute trust, hah.
Merlin knows where to strike Arthur --- his vanity. I enjoy this. Now we need a sweaty workout scene.
... was that a single tear rolling down Merlin's cheek?
Someone needs to tell Merlin you can't base a solid relationship on wanting to look after someone.
YAY, GWEN. I have been missing her lately, and missing her interaction with Merlin this entire series.
Moths, Merlin, really?
*DIES FOREVER* OMG. OMG. OMG. Arthur just looks and keeps going. But then he has to ask. And then he mocks. ♥ ♥ ♥ (He wouldn't care, Merlin! He might even like it! There are probably going to be nine billion more Merlin crossdressing fics up by next week.)
... dude, you walked into Morgana's room, rambled about moths, took it, got mocked a little --- that's actually really easy.
This is predictable, but it does make me live in hope for Merlin & Zombies.
Don't worry, Merlin, she's clearly not dead. She's breathing!
Okay, now she's dead.
Oh, man. This scene. This scene. Arthur clearly loves Merlin. However you want to interpret it is fine, but look at his grin. Look!
I read a story once where Arthur and Merlin were reincarnated as brothers and I spent the entire time thinking 'if I were going to write this story it would be very different.' Because, apart from the story mentioning they were brothers every couple of paragraphs (mostly for the thrill of the taboo, these were brotherlovers), they were far less brotherly than in the actual show. If you're wondering why, given what I've said I don't do in the past I a) read a Merlin fic, b) read an incest fic; the answer would be c) I was bored and curious as to how the author would handle it.
And next week: they need to stop with the enchanting Pendragons to fall in lust. We've had it too many times. (Okay, I know, I know, it's a common theme in all the Arthurian legends.)
