For the first time since I became king, I know in my heart I’ve made the right decision.
In his head, Arthur makes a list of things he thinks he might love about Gwen – the arch of her spine; her veracity; her hands pressing against his shoulders – after the second time. He files it next to the litany of things about Merlin he’s never said he adores.

This is one of the fics I return to over and over again. I love the author’s writing style; it’s quiet and gut-wrenching. Her words hit the right nerves that will make you hurt and hope at the same time. The resolution to the story is realistic, and yet it still holds a certain happy/hopeful ending quality to it. (It’s Arthur/Merlin endgame, for those in doubt)
SUMMARY: Merlin Emrys is not particularly keen on grand birthday gifts so it’s only fair that he’s remarkably anxious over this one.
