What Goes Around Chapter 1: And So It Begins, a merlin fanfic | FanFiction
Getting competent advice is a real challenge, and Arthur in particularly has tended . Lancelot from destroying Arthur and Guinevere's relationship; and failing to. so i found a picture that summarizes both merlin & arthur's relationship and also all just gwaine and percival giving relationship advice to merlin and whomever epilogue where arthur/merlin and morgana and gwen/lance + all their kids!!!. All I know is that Merlin had been hurt - don't worry, it didn't look serious Arthur came to a stumbling halt, grabbing the wall - and Gwen - for.
I hope you like it, love! Arthur walked restlessly up and down his room. A behaviour, that his servant, Merlin, could no longer bear to look at. The Princess of the Kingdom of Reynes. And even though according to his father it would improve the relationship between their two realms, Arthur had not planned on getting married any time soon. Immediately Arthur went into a rage.
Do you really think, your commentary is necessary right now? Arthur tried his best to remain calm. Have you tried to say no? Arthur stood outside of the castle. He wore his cloak, the crest of Camelot embroidered on it, while the crown sat heavily on his head. To his left stood his father, eyes fixed on the carriages that could be seen in the horizon.
Slowly Arthur turned his gaze to look the same way, even though he could hardly hide the gloom that reflected from his face. He had bigger problems than to worry about his servant. Over and over he tried to remind himself to stay calm and friendly, repeating the words he had lain out to greet the King, the Queen and the Princess with, once they climbed out of their carriages. I'm starting to get slightly concerned about his drinking.
He's too skinny to keep up with Gwaine. Plus he can't hold his liquor to save his life. I'm afraid that he's going to show up one morning to tell me that he accidentally married a chicken the night before and wants my blessing.
It's hardly a nightly event for him. And it's not like he has a birthday every week. It was kind of adorable, if you ask me. By the way, what did you get him? I got him a new bag. You know, the one that he always takes on your adventures and quests and whatever else you two get up to in the woods was getting really holey and the strap was about one more bandit attack away from snapping, so I thought that…" "For his birthday.
It was not long enough to make a person particularly uncomfortable, but it was plenty long enough for a man faced with a glare such as Guinevere's at that moment to become at least somewhat nervous. Shouting would have been far less terrifying. He never said…I mean, honestly, Guinevere, he's my servant.
It's really his birthday? You spend most of every day with him! Did you think that he never had one?
i like merlin and arthur relationship
It had seemed like a very natural plan to him at the time, and Merlin had been packed before Arthur had even informed him that his presence would be required. But it somehow sounded like a very strange idea when said aloud by someone else, as though having a third person along made it any less of a romantic honeymoon.
Merlin had even given some very helpful advice about the wedding night. Merlin had written half of his notes to Guinevere anyway. Maybe he had been a bit tough on Merlin during their honeymoon. But he just couldn't get himself to feel too remorseful for that. Merlin had carried far more on their quests, and they were usually running the risk of either being eaten or skewered on those trips.
Plus, Merlin had been the one who had chosen and packed all of Arthur's things for the honeymoon anyway.

It was his own fault. Now, Arthur just felt guilty. And it wasn't like he could give the excuse that, as royalty, it would be inappropriate for him to give gifts to his servants. Guinevere had seen to that. If only she hadn't told him that it was Merlin's birthday!
And now he had to do something. It couldn't be too big. That would just be embarrassing. Yes, he had given Merlin the new coat as a wedding present. However, as it was later pointed out to him that wedding presents tend to be given to either the bride or groom rather than by the groom to his manservant, Arthur had been somewhat less than generous with Merlin lately. Plus, the rumors of their codependency were getting to be a bit much if even the king was starting to hear them.
But now it was Merlin's birthday. Considering how excited Merlin always seemed to get for Arthur's birthdays, extravagant parties aside, he seemed to be a fan of birthday celebrations.
Arthur briefly considered waiting until tomorrow and then somberly explaining to Merlin that he had intended to have a very special birthday gift made for him, but that the memory of Uther's mortal wounding occurring on Arthur's previous birthday had made the whole process too painful for him.
He then considered that perhaps his father would not appreciate Arthur using his death as an excuse to avoid throwing together some bric-a-brac for a serving boy. Guinevere, seeing that she had clearly thrown a mighty conundrum at her husband and king, quietly left Arthur to his thoughts. In the safety of the corridor, she was free to laugh aloud at the look of intense concentration on his face as he ignored matters of state to ponder birthday presents for his most loyal servant.
By the time that the man of the hour himself came in with lunch, all that Arthur had been able to come up with was "a day off. He looked unenthusiastically down at his meal. Whether it was because his ponderings were so distracting him or because Merlin was getting his revenge for the morning of stable mucking by serving him what was possibly the most unappealing compilation of dishes from the royal kitchens, Arthur could do no more than pick at his food.
Judging from the way that Merlin wasn't trying to snake tastes off of the plate, he hadn't intended for Arthur to enjoy this meal. Merlin's carefully straight face only confirmed this suspicion.
After a few wary glances, Merlin looked as though he were about a single pout away from laughing, only saving himself by picking at his ratty old neckerchief. He had apparently chosen his rattiest in honor of his special day. Though considering the time period they are in, I guess not really; people got married when they were very young back then However, as I said before, I'm alright with Lancelot coming back and romancing Gwen in the mean time.
He was just lovely. Welcome by the way! Always thrilled to get more 'Merlin' fans in here! This show seems to work very little with that though, it really is a side dressing. In fact I wouldn't say that there was ANY overt romance in their first outing for the show. More just tiny bits here and there. Uther talked about Igraine being his 'heart' so that was a bit I suppose but it was just a mention, and then of course there is Lancelot's crush on Gwen, but that was pretty brief too considering he only had the one episode, though the writers definitely made you aware he was attracted to her and she was charmed by his noble attitude.
So I actually don't know how 'Merlin' would handle a little mini-romance arc.
