Merlin and Arthur
I can’t even give this a fancy title! My first time drawing those two, I’m sorry if they look off. I didn’t have enough reference pics.
Happy Birthday Eve! ♥♥
I failed to take a good picture and I’m not sure which way is up. There’s another, cropped version (where the colours are lighter) which I’ll upload later.
Merlin AU: In which Merlin and Arthur were supposed to go out on a hunt but ended up bringing home a baby instead.
Merlin Reincarnation AU » The first time Arthur saw snow in the modern world was on a Thursday. Merlin got home from work and insisted they go outside because “Snow isn’t as awful as it used to be.” So they ran and tumbled about in the white blanket of snow, getting cold and wet and not caring at all. Starting snowball fights and making snowangels. At the end of the day they went inside and had hot chocolate and kissed by the fire, and Arthur considers it his favorite day since returning.
#ok so the first one is because merlin is trying to help arthur with his magic #still pretty gay but there’s a reason for it at least #ARTHUR THOUGH… HE’S LITERALLY JUST DREAMING ABOUT MERLIN AND THIS DREAM HE’S HAVING FOR NO PARTICULAR REASON IS SO INTENSE HE SAYS MERLIN’S NAME OUT LOUD #what are you dreaming about arthur
merlin’s face though
like his mouth closes and he’s like waitwhatnow
Just a friendly reminder that in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, Ron said Hermione’s name in his sleep in the exact same fucking way and they had latent feelings for each other and now they are married and have children.
I have a picture for this but I can’t find it…
Okay here’s the story, morning glories – the Lake is farther north in this version, and After It All, Merlin has nothing to do but keep vigil beside it. People come and go, things happen in-between, and eventually Merlin sees the realization of his greatest dream– the assurance that magic will have a future. The founding of Hogwarts gives Merlin a great deal of hope and pride, not to mention makes him all sorts of cutely emotional aw bambi. With renewed optimism and finally a place he can truly consider home, his old (that is to say, young and tighter-butted) self makes a reappearance, until the general masses forget that Merlin the old man and that gangly young fellow with the silly scarf are the same. (He leaves the legacy behind, but that’s okay; being a celebrity is hard- just ask Harry Potter in a few hundred years) In this way the headmasters of Hogwarts inherit Merlin and his duty much in the way that the Muggle prime minister inherits the knowledge of the wizarding world.
He likes very much to take tea with Dumbledore, to talk about dumb things with him (past flames/present flames/currently waterlogged and comatose flames), and to offer him counsel for the not-so-dumb things ‘cause, come on, it is Merlin - it’s in the job description. He likes to help Hagrid with the grounds keeping, and if he was thrilled when the unicorns came back to the Forbidden Forest, he was ecstatic when Norbert came along. He exists as a benign presence on the grounds, watching generations go by. He watches war happen, too, but by now he knows better than to interfere with certain destinies wink wink.
And then early one morning he finds himself overcome with the (admittedly oddly specific) sensation of needing to go save some moistened jackass from the giant squid, and dutifully puts on pants to trudge down to the banks of the lake, where he helps a very disoriented Arthur splash and stumble out of the shallows, becoming rather soggy in the process, but it doesn’t even matter because the manful sobbing has been a long time coming.
And they live happily ever after with lots of kisses and snuggles at hoggy warty Hogwarts and there is no more pain except for all the pain that Harry experiences, sorry bro destiny, can’t help ya there Merls has already done his time. (◡‿◡✿)
Bea and I are committed to this (AU? Headcanon?) it is the gospel truth yes good let me live in delusion plz
Merthur + “Arthur values your opinion above almost all others. Even if he’d be the last person to admit it.”
