Author's Notes: Unbetaed. Season 1.

--------------------------------------
Promotion to Arthur's personal manservant -slave- wasn't what Merlin had in mind when he'd saved the arse. No money, no glory. He certainly wasn't doing it for the honour. Merlin couldn't help grumbling about the unfairness of it all to anyone who'd listen.

There was a silver lining in Merlin's cloud of woe, though. Insulting the princely prat was fun, making up ridiculous names even better. Best of all was hearing the clotpoll's sputtering outrage when Merlin let them fly.

So he wasn't going to quit. Not yet.

Besides, cabbage-head was next on Merlin's extensive insult list.

He couldn't wait.
