Author's Notes:

“Mmm, feels good,” said Gwaine, opening his eyes at the feel of Arthur’s fingers in his hair.

Arthur was awake, though his eyes were still closed. “Morning, love.”

“How’s Sleeping Beauty over there?” asked Gwaine, trailing thumb across Arthur’s chest. “You think we wore him out—hard to tell the way he sleeps?”

“Haha. I know, let’s try something.” Arthur said, grinning from ear to ear, and indicating non-verbally that Gwaine should keep an eye on Merlin. “Oh, Gwaine, that’s it, harder, yesssssssss….”

Gwaine laughed, but there was a gleam in his eye that sent a shiver down Arthur’s back.

Just then, the doorbell rang.

“Oh shit!” both men exclaimed simultaneously.

Merlin stirred slightly, muttering, “Wrrff? Wuzzat?”

“Go get the door, Arthur, I’m naked.”

“You get it, Gwaine, I’m in the middle.”

Arthur turned towards Merlin and gently shook him, while Gwaine called, “Merlin, wakey wakey! Someone’s at the door!”

Ah, they're sweet. You're right. There is definitely something about guys being sweet to each other that is very appealing.

Keep writing the sweet... I need something in the universe to balance out all the slime in my head😁

Something for everyone :)
I think it's important that there are people that can tackle the really awful stuff too. And thanks for putting up with my fluff.

Aren't they? Not sure I shouldn't switch Gwaine and Arthur, but I'm pretty sure they'd both gang up on Merlin, who would clearly be the heaviest sleeper. Merlin on September 12th, 2017 10:57 pm (UTC)
What a lovely little huddle of boys. I can just picture them all cuddled together in bed, and Arthur and Gwaine teaming up to tease Merlin awake was so cute and funny. :)

I love that, "a lovely little huddle of boys". And some of Arthur's entitlement might rub off on Gwaine, until Merlin puts them both in their place....then they'll make it up to him!

LOL. Poor Merlin. Answering the door probably isn't how he wanted to wake up. Very cute.

"Most powerful wizard in the world, and they want me to open the door." (I'm thinking Hitch Hiker's Guide...Marvin the paranoid android..."Brain the size of a planet and...."
I think they might make it up to Merlin later. They definitely like to make him happy.

Aw sleepy morning. Naughty boys though ;)

I think they might have been just about to wake Merlin up anyway, even if the door bell hadn't rung...but maybe in a way they'd all prefer.

Loved the characterisation of it. With Gwaine as a sexy but lazy sod. And Merlin snoozing on. Lovely.

Thanks so much for reading and commenting! I love your stuff a lot, so I might be grinning because I have a sweet comment from you! A 150 word limit is hard!
