Merthur Party - Day 7
The Golden Age
My my love
I’ve been without you too long
My my love
I’ve been running too fast to belong to anyone
But then you came along
You warm me like sunshine
You cool me like summer rain
Just let me sit down beside you
Over and over again
—— Joshua Radin - My, My Love —-
When Kilgharrah told Merlin about Arthur coming back when Albion was in great danger, he never could imagine that the great danger was himself losing hope and almost giving up on his life.
Arthur came back and saved Merlin and they both could now finally live in a world where no crown or magic could keep them apart. And they lived a pretty normal life. They dated and traveled to old places that looked completely different for Arthur. They were free to hold hands, hug and make love.
On a summer day at the beach Arthur proposed and Merlin said yes and by the end of the season they were married. A couple of years later they decided they wanted to have a child and almost a year later they found the perfect little boy and adopted him. Their lives couldn’t be more perfect. Yes they argued about a lot of silly things, and old nicknames were said, but at night they laid together in bed and held hands and made promises of love.
The grew old together, their little boy fell in love, got married and had kids. Arthur and Merlin loved their grandchildren but they loved too the days they spent just the two of them, now with wrinkled hands and faces. People would constantly see the old couple walking on parks or down the street holding hands. And this time nothing could keep them apart.
On a chilly autumn morning both men were found dead in their bed, holding each other’s hands. This time they done it right, they were finally able to fulfill their destiny and they may not have built a great kingdom, but they built a great life and could finally walk towards eternity together.
it’s not a proper Merlin fic without this
Merlin Season 6 - Playing With Magic
What would happen if Arthur didn’t die but was saved? How would he have reacted to Merlin doing magic in front of him? What would Merlin show him and when would Arthur finally give in and tell Merlin?
or how i was just fooling around on PhotoShop after going ‘be damned art block, just make something Charles!’
AU - The one where they are obvious and everyone knows.
HOW FUCKING LONG DID THIS TAKE TO MAKE HOLY SHIT THATS AMAZING AFLKEDSJFLAJ
"And what do we say to death?"
"The fuck out my face"
Merthur Party Day 6: Just The Beginning
Merlin thought it was just going to be another day of cooking, cleaning, occasional reading, surviving but not living… the usual.
He thought it was just going to be normal day and why do I even bother when —
Thud-thud-thud on the door. A muffled “MERlin!”
Suddenly, he was alive again."Ugh MERlin what is this place, it’s a pigsty!"
"Shut up, PRAT. Just— Just let me hold you, please. Properly and no running off this time or I’ll- I’ll—"
"You are such a GIRL, Merlin. But I don’t fancy going anywhere anytime soon, you have my word on that."
Arthur gets to grips with modern technology, helped by Merlin’s post it notes.
William looks like he’s thinking, “Geez, son, settle down!” in the first gif! Haha
Man I feel really bad for the Tumblr Staff because I bet they aimed for Tumblr to be a cool, suavé, photographic place for artists but in reality it’s made up of hormonal teenagers who obsess over gay fictional characters, and can’t even handle the reblog button turning green to teal
STOP IT RIGHT NOW HE HAS A GIANT WOMBAT
It’s the year 2005 and since Merlin finally adjusted to modern technology, he decides to start a video diary. Day 536179 seems a normal day, but then Merlin remembers today would have been Arthur’s birthday. He tries to smile, but that’s just one of the hardest things to do nowadays. Even after more than thousand years, he still can’t speak about his lost king without choking up. Because the only thing he can think about is that he wants to just, -just hold Arthur.
THIS IS ACTUALLY PAINFUL imagine arthur coming back and finding these and he’s crying cause he never really knew how bad it was for merlin so he runs off to find merlin and cuddle the living fuck out of him while kissing him all over saying things like ‘i’m here’ ‘i’m not leaving’ and ‘i’m sorry’and merlin’s confused as to where this is coming from until he pieces it together and just hugs arthur saying ‘it’s okay’ and ‘i know’ (via)
