Deep as the Wine Dark Sea - RurouniHime - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
"Arthur," Uther hisses, a wretched anxiety lilting the name. "Get out of the way!"

Arthur's jaw clenches. Merlin can see the stain on his tunic widening, feel it soaking through to his palms where he holds Arthur around the chest. He remembers that he's the one keeping Arthur in place and shifts his grip to let him slide down, when—

"Any…" Arthur's voice fails; he swallows, and the sound holds an ugly rasp. "Any blade that reaches Merlin…" —he sags further, fingers clamping tighter to Merlin's hips— "goes through m… me first."
