Hurts - phandomoftheowl - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
“He seems delicate sometimes. Like he needs protecting. He's an idiot, yeah, but he's also... he has his own darkness, Gwaine. He doesn't like to let people close, and he guards his secrets better than a dragon guarding a vast treasure. ”
Gwaine wanted to ask how a PrinceKing who pretended much indifference to his manservant could know so much about him, but he didn't want to interrupt whatever insights Arthur was willing to dole out today.
“And it hurts. Knowing that he doesn't trust you hurts. And it tears you apart until all you can do is sit and wait and accept his utterly ridiculous smiles, and hope that he'll tell you today. Just, maybe today would be the day.” Arthur glanced sideways for a brief moment, eyes full of meaning.

Millions of Peaches - Dira Sudis (dsudis) - Merlin (BBC) [Archive of Our Own]
Merlin must have poisoned himself eating too many peaches; he must now be in some sort of bizarre fruit-induced daze. It was the only reasonable explanation. Otherwise he would have to believe that Arthur knew all his secrets, held Merlin's life and heart and soul in the palm of his sword-callused hand.

"Honestly, if you're this hopelessly in love with me at the same time that you think I'm stupid enough not to have noticed, I really have to question your taste," Arthur said, and then sighed heavily and kissed him at last.

Leaving Only Bells of Lightning - shes_gone - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
"Arthur," he says, thick and with careful intent, exactly the way he once did after an impossible whirlwind in his mother's village, and a flash of lightning pierces all the hall's windows at once, like a shower of arrows. Arthur grits his teeth to the point of pain, and he should have let Merlin change tactics, because he isn't ready for this.

Merlin glances at him uncertainly, and Arthur has no idea what to say. He wants to say that it's all right. That he already knows, of course, and that he's sorry. That he's so desperately sorry for all of it, for everything he never did to stop his father, and that he hopes Merlin will forgive him and stay, despite it all, because Arthur wants to make it right, wants to fix all of this madness and he has no idea how he'll do it without Merlin—he has no idea what he'll do without Merlin - but he doesn't know how to say any of that.

Strange and Fearless - wangler - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
It was silly, really. Soaking in Arthur’s tub while the prince tended to the king. Arthur had the shadow of all of Camelot looming over him and a shattered father, and Merlin only had—well, he had destiny. And maybe a few bruised ribs that throbbed now that the adrenaline had worn off and the sun had gone down and his body had finally settled into the stiff pain of overuse.
