Characters/pairings: Merlin/Arthur, sort of
Summary: Merlin doesn't get what he's expecting.
Prompt 194: Expectation
A/N: I couldn't finish what I was working on and didn't want to miss the prompt, so I rattled out this silly, cracky, self-indulgent thing tonight. Sorry.
Merlin was fed up.
He’d been promised Arthur, and he wanted Arthur. Preferably some mutual attraction. Flirting at the very least. Some snogging would have been more than acceptable, and possibly even a shag. Yeah, a shag would’ve been great. But he would have settled for just snuggling on the sofa. Even quickly requited pining.
At least he’d been spared any angst, physical pain and general suffering. But even that would have done, because he almost always got Arthur at the end of it. That was the comfort part of hurt-comfort, after all.
Writer’s block sucked, Merlin decided.
