Arthur: Merlin isn't hot. Servants can't be hot. I will hereby make it illegal to call Merlin hot.
Council: Sire, with all due respect, don't we have more important matters to discuss?
Arthur: right, right. You're right.
Arthur: GREAT! Now I like his personality!
merlin but someone tries to accuse merlin of magic and obvi arthur is like “no merlin doesn’t have magic” because he may be sweet (ish) but he’s also very very very stupid but the person tries to prove it by constantly taunting merlin so that merlin will get angry enough and lash out using his magic and boom death sentence for merlin
merlin reaches his breaking point and yells something like “I WOULDNT NEED MAGIC TO BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF YOU” and just like lunges forward but either a frantic arthur catches him and drags him away or an exasperated leon just sighs and picks him up and puts him on time out
every time i go on a merlin rewatch i am once again astounded by how gay it actually is
Morgana: You should get an award for sticking up with me.
Gwen: You're my award, darling.
Arthur (smirking): You should get an award for sticking up with me.
Merlin: Heck right I do! You're bloody exhausting!

"Merlin and Arthur are in love with each other in a very romantic way."
The crowd boos. I begin to walk off in shame, when a voice speaks and commands silence from the room.
"It's true." It says. I search the crowd for the owner of the voice. There, in the 3rd row stands: Katie McGrath herself.
