The Return of the King
NO I AM NOT DONE WITH THESE MERLIN FEELS. @_@
(also I feel I should clarify that the butterfly is a sign of the King’s return - not that Arthur has actually reincarnated as an insect, as hilarious as that would be.)
2x08 Commentary with Bradley James and Colin Morgan
“The pair who are destined to — well, the two pairings, I suppose, who are destined to end up together — in a, you know, in a different way — Lancelot and Guinevere… and Arthur and, God forbid, Merlin.” - Bradley James
Trying to find somewhere to make out with your manservant is surprisingly difficult because everyone seems to walk in on you - An Arthur Pendragon story
Merlin Cast Commentary//2.01 The Curse of Cornelius Sigan- In which Colin and Bradley establish that Merlin will always choose Arthur.
#AU in which Arthur gets more than one episode to adjust to Merlin having magic and ofc he takes it badly but as the series moves on he sees just what Merlin has done for him and starts to rethink his whole attitude to magic and they slowly build the trust up between them again until Arthur even asks Merlin to show him some of his spells and pretends to be totally unimpressed ‘You’re telling me the greatest sorcerer to walk the earth can only make a little fire dragon?’ ‘OH A BUTTERFLY THAT’S MUCH BETTER MERLIN, REALLY, HOW COULD I EVER DOUBT YOUR POWER’ fast forward a few episodes and we’ve got Merlin and Arthur kicking ass on the battlefield and JESUS FUCK WHY WASN’T THIS WHAT HAPPENED?!!!

UHM CAN I JUST POINT OUT
HOW MERLIN LEGIT SOBBED WHEN HE THOUGHT HE COULDN’T SAVE ARTHUR?
DID YOU SEE THAT FACE?
HAVE YOU EVER SEEN ANYTHING SO HEARTBREAKINGLY PRECIOUS?
“You have a very good servant.”
“You’re right, I do. A servant who is extremely brave, incredibly loyal to be honest. Not at all cowardly.”
And as the world comes to and end
I’ll be here to hold your hand
Cause you’re my king and I’m your lionheart
