    Summary

    “If anything like this ever happens again-”
    He catches Arthur’s gaze - deep and unwavering, the conviction in it glinting like sunlight off Excalibur.
    “-You call for me. Merlin,” he repeats, “you call for me. Right?”

    --

    A noble takes liberties with Merlin.

    Summary

    When Merlin opened his eyes to see Uther Pendragon in all his menacing glory standing in the middle of his hospital room, he was almost certain that he must be high on painkillers, because there was no way, there was absolutely no way, that Uther Pendragon was standing in the middle of his hospital room.

    “You’re awake,” Uther said, his voice almost pleasant. Merlin was immediately suspicious but the feeling was more muted than he usually felt when Uther showed up unannounced in his life – or rather Arthur’s life that Merlin was intrinsically a part of. Actually, everything was rather muted and hazy, which might be because Merlin was high on painkillers.

    Summary

    “What’s your story?” Merlin asked, his eyes a bit more gentle than the gazes of a whole group of strangers.

    Arthur hesitated, his mouth thick. “…I lost my leg.”

    Merlin’s look at him didn’t change; his eyes didn’t go soft and pitying. He didn’t ask invasive questions. Instead, he said “My fiancé died. Here. While I was overseas.”

    The bottom fell out of Arthur’s stomach. “Shit.”

    Summary

    Merlin thought he would get used to it all—to missed calls and failed Skype sessions, to sleepless nights and lonely mornings, to taking each breath and hoping that somewhere, oceans and miles away, Arthur was doing the same. To counting down the days until Arthur was back home again, safe. Alive.

    He was wrong.
