    Summary

    Merlin knew he was pushing his limits, that he was millimeters away from overstepping the invisible line that Arthur had wordlessly set and the warlock had been careful not to cross, but he was never one to listen to the rules that were set for him. Especially not when he was afraid.

    Agravaine had managed to weasel his way into his king’s mind and ingrain doubts in the people he loved, the people that loved him...doubts that only took place and bloomed as the traitor lied and deceived and planted things against them. He had gotten rid of Gwen easily enough, and had almost gotten rid of Gaius. Merlin was afraid. Were a few words and items all it would take for Arthur to turn against him too?

    Summary

    Two days after their kidnapping on the night of the full moon, Arthur surprised Merlin by asking him to eat breakfast with him. Arthur did this because he was an extremely kind prince, no matter what Merlin might say about him being a prat, and also because he was very nervous and maybe not quite over the fear of losing the only man he could, without hesitation, call a friend. Still, Arthur had been trained since birth to do many things, and faking confidence was one of them.

    So, it was with great fake-confidence that he said. “So, when are we going to Ealdor to meet your imaginary friend?”

    Summary

    Merlin is overwhelmed and struggling to cope with the weight of his responsibilities and the secrets he is forced to keep. Gwaine and Arthur are worried about their friend and try their best to help save him from himself.

    Summary

    “Stay here tonight,” Arthur said softly, and although it was framed as an order Merlin could hear the entreaty in his voice. “I want you to stay where I can—where I can see you.”

    “Mmn,” Merlin said without opening his eyes. “I could be persuaded.”

    After a close call with a vengeful sorceress, Merlin and Arthur find comfort in each other through touch.

    Summary

    “Well.” Merlin said nervously. “Our luck had to run out sometime.”
    Arthur growled. “I blame you. I had perfect luck before you came along.”
    Merlin gasped, feigning offence. “I’ll have you know Will and I were the luckiest kids in Ealdor. No way this is my fault.”
    Arthur grinned, and there were a few too many sharp teeth for Merlin’s liking. “You know, I’m starting to think this Will doesn’t exist. Did you make up a pretend best friend to make me jealous Merlin?”

    Summary

    “What is this, Merlin?” he said forcefully.

    Merlin jumped before freezing in place, the pile of clothes falling to the floor and his eyes returning to their normal blue.

    “Merlin,” he snapped, wanting a response.

    Merlin dropped to his knees, his breaths quickly becoming ragged. “Please, I’m sorry, sorry, so sorry, please,” he begged, “Please, I can’t- I don’t- please, please, Arthur, I don’t wanna burn! Please, pleasepleaseplease…”
