[fic] : merlin (gwen/arthur) - Merlin, It's Cold Outside  
Title: Merlin, It's Cold Outside
Rating: G
Word count: 205 words
Characters: Arthur/Gwen, Merlin
Summary: Winter makes Arthur a lot cold and a little noble. For dollsome's prompt: Merlin + Gwen/Arthur + winter.


It is freezing.

No, it is worse than freezing this morning. It is so cold that even he, Arthur Pendragon, is shivering. Curled in bed, waiting for the serving-maid to finish stoking the fire, he briefly contemplates putting on his chain mail. Or his cloak. Or both? Anything to add a little weight and warmth. The maidservant leaves. Arthur puts one foot on the stone floor.

Arthur gets right back into bed, thank you very much.


"Gwen, do you not have anything warmer?"

"I am fine, my lady. Really! I was - I left in a hurry this morning, that is all."

"Please, take something of mine. This wrap! Take this wrap?"

"My lady, I - thank you, my lady, but I would only dirty it. Truly..."

“Very well.”

But Morgana does not sound convinced. A moment later, Arthur looks up from practising sword feints. They are gone; walking back to the castle. Two shapes, one in a far thinner cloak.


As he staggers under the weight of a bundle of logs, Merlin doubts the truth of his master’s words. According to Arthur, Morgana asked him to send a bundle of wood to Gwen. Merlin suspects Morgana had nothing to do with it.
