Hello and welcome!
This is a fan held event for fans of the characters Arthur and Morgana Pendragon from BBC Merlin and related Arthurian mythos. The event is open to all to participate (shipping these two characters is not a requirement in order to participate) and runs for five weeks starting November 28th, 2021 and running until January 1st, 2022.
Each week has a list of possible prompts to choose from (more on this down below). In order for your work to be accepted for the event and shared here on our blog it only must relate to Arthur and Morgana in some way, and by no means has to be intended as romantic, for us to consider it for the event. Likewise, the prompts serve as a starting point for you to start brainstorming ideas; you do not have to follow them to a tee if you would prefer not to. Also feel free to mix and match prompts between weeks. You don’t even have to post content related to the specific prompts of the week during that same week. As long as you tag your posts with #armormonth2021 we will reblog your work to share with others; there are no deadlines. Ultimately, we want this event to be welcoming to everyone in our fandom so we will be accepting all sorts of creations. Fics, fanvids, fanart, gifsets, graphics, playlists, headcanons, etc. are all welcome. Even your WIPs if they relate, we welcome you to share!
The prompts: As mentioned above, the prompts are just a starting place for you to get ideas. Feel free to run with them however you like and pick and choose whichever ones you feel drawn to. They are not listed in any particular order and nor do works related to any specific prompt have to be posted on a certain day of the week. Feel free to post your work whenever you would like. Just make sure to tag it with #armormonth2021 so we see it and can share it here on this blog.

Why do the writers always delete the scenes with character development and great dynamics?
Merlin and Gwaine discussing about Gaius and Gwaine's father? Not important! Gwaine is only a comic relief now.
Merlin and Arthur discussing about Morgana? Who cares! Arthur and Morgana are not brother and sister after all. They didn't grow up together. Arthur doesn’t care about that evil witch. He never cared.
Mordred expressing hesitation to Morgana about joining her too soon before giving Arthur a second chance? Nah. Mordred is super evil now. End of story.
Arthur gave Merlin Ygraine's sigil AND shows how much Arthur still thinks about his mother and cares for Merlin? How Arthur accepting him in his family? Fuck this scene. Arthur is a prince and Merlin just a stupid servant! We can't elevate this stupid servant.
Merlin doesn’t intend to join everyone seated at the round table, but Arthur calls him over to sit at his side? Delete this shit! Arthur and Merlin are not equal. They are not two sides of the same coin.
....this is clearly not important.
Thank you, writers!
