AND WHEN YOU’RE DEAD, MERLIN WAITS FOREVER FOR YOUR RETURN.
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.
inspired by this
imagine us as grandparents or something like that telling bedtime stories to our grand kids “IN A LAND OF MYTH AND A TIME OF MAGIC THE DESTINY OF A GREAT KINGDOM RESTS ON THE SHOULDERS OF A YOUNG BOY HIS NAME… Merlin”
and merlin will still be waiting for arthur
I WAS HAPPY

#okay but i have to say that this entire episode was without a doubt the most romantic thing i have ever ever seen. #i don’t consider myself a merthur shipper but holy hell on earth this is a love story if the world ever saw one. #and the way these two played it like it was THE love story #i honestly started to doubt myself and reality when in over 3 scenes i could not shake the overwhelming premonition that they were going #to kiss and that it would be the most tender heartfelt and single most beautiful sight that the lords could ever decree #’just… hold me’ #JUST HOLD ME?!?! #isn’t it a law of chemical equilibrium that a line such as that cannot be uttered between people who aren’t soulmates?
