Character/s: Arthur, Merlin
Summary: Uther would be spinning in his grave
Word Count: 100
Prompt: 65 Flaws
Author's Notes: I wish Arthur was this romantic.
The facets of Merlin that Uther would call flaws, Arthur would call strengths.
Merlin’s too big ears and too wide smiles, incessant babble and irreverence. Male and mouthy and willful.
But those ears heat under Arthur’s hands and his smiles warm Arthur on a chilly night. The mindless chatter is easy and the insolence and insults often pull his King from dark thoughts. Merlin is never afraid to speak his mind, stand up for what he thinks is right.
Without seeming to try, Merlin slots into a place in Arthur’s heart. Perfect fit.
The magic is just a bonus, really.
