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.

Ever wonder what lengths these two would go to to keep their love a secret? Why wonder?Collapse )

Thanks :). Glad you enjoyed this one, I like to use warm tones with these two, like sunshine their love is so gentle (in my eyes anyway), that's what I love about the pairing. Thanks for the support, it means a lot.

Thank you, I do love a good cuddle. I'll have to go back and watch that episode to remind myself of the scene you mean.

Love that fiercely protective look arthur has. Really suits the situation of us-against-the-world.

I imagine he'd be a pretty protective boyfriend, which I find super hot :).
