CHEWYSTORIES The weight of a secret love  
Title | The weight of a secret love
Author | chewableprose 
Fandom | Merlin
Pairing | Merlin/Arthur
Rating |
Dedication | tomboytoy, because you’re so good to me, and because I wanted to make a manip as sweet as you
Ficlet | To lie with another man in these medieval times was something that was mostly done in secret, or rationalised as part of a knight training his squire, the boy seeing his mentor’s manhood as a symbol of ideal maleness. But there were no such rituals between a master and manservant, particularly when the master was of royal blood. And so Arthur would have Merlin fetch bedding from the palace and make a place for them outside of Camelot. It was here, in the ruins of a once fortress, that they could be together, and here only. But as Arthur’s responsibilities grew and the opportunity to get away with his servant became fewer, the weight of their secret love was felt by both.

This Pair is love. Out of every fandom and every real so I could almost see this pairing...if only the writers would slightly twick the show...only a minor twick. Great Job

Thanks so much, I love this pairing too.

Oh Joe, you're too kind, thanks a lot *hugs*

This is a real nice and sweet manip really. They look good together (even though they seem a little sick too me there). Thanks for dedicating it to me ^^

Thanks Tom, and you're welcome. Curious, in what way do they look sick?

They're looking a bit wary: we must reassure them that we don't mind!
chewableprose on July 8th, 2011 09:42 pm (UTC)
Agreed, they can stay in my bed ;).

So hot together. That show would have such a godd following if it had been more adult and less family oriented.
chewableprose on July 8th, 2011 09:44 pm (UTC)
That's true, although I do also like the innocence of it.

This pair is magic. And now you've fulfilled a dream -- wrapped in Bradley's arms. Luv-er-ly!

Thanks so much, glad you like it. Yeah I've had the flu pretty bad, hopefully I'll start feeling better soon.

Oh ho ho! NICE! I've now got Merlin on my list of shows to buy next! (Don't have TV, just buy the boxsets, or off of iTunes) Still in a Supernatural craze right now! lol! As always, perfect work!
Hope you get to feeling better if you're still sick! :)
chewableprose on July 9th, 2011 04:19 am (UTC)
You're in for a treat then, Merlin's great. Thanks, yeah, I'm still very sick, hopefully I'll start getting better soon. Glad you liked this one :).
