nov 15: MerlinFic: doth protest too much. [Gen. Merlin, Arthur] & a quick ramble...  
So I had a new phone for all of five minutes before that one decided that, no it didn't actually want to work either and promptly turned itself off. Thank you very much, phone. As a result I am once again without a phone and getting really quite pissed off about the whole thing- is it possible for a sim-card to be infected/carry a virus? I have to wait till Sunday evening before I can see about getting something sorted because my cousin (who is dealing with all this drama) was at Murryfield today watching the South Africa v Scotland match today (omg won by the skin of our teeth!) and won't be in any fit state to help me till then at the earliest.

Le sigh.

To cheer myself up however I'm off out to the pictures this evening to go and see "Easy Virtue". It's a comedy set in something like the 1920's and it really looks like it'll be the biggest laugh ever. Plus Prince Caspian Ben Barnes is in it. Shallow Caspe is shallow, and will likely enjoy it just for that fact alone.

And on the off chance that I won't be back in time to write fic before midnight tonight, I've decided to provide ya'll with a drabble (because I totally refuse to fail at Caspe-Wri-Mo!)

.doth protest too much; Gen. Merlin, Arthur, (Merlin/Gwen); U-Rated; 310words: Coda: 1.03:


 

“So… you and Gwen, huh?” Arthur asked as Merlin stepped into his chambers.

 

“No!” Merlin exclaimed immediately, his brow furrowing at the words. “There is no me and Gwen, why does everyone think I'm in love with her?” He huffed indignantly and folded his arms across his chest.

 

“Um… maybe your profession of undying love in court was a bit of a clue?” Arthur raised his eyebrows as if were the most obvious explanation in the world.

 

“I was trying to take the blame,” Merlin protested, adding, “for a friend,” when Arthur looked as though he were struggling not to laugh.

 

“That's… pretty much the same thing.” Arthur replied slowly, fighting back the smile trying to tug at his lips.

 

“I'm not in love with Gwen.” Merlin said, his expression one of complete seriousness.

 

“Then what? You're a wizard?” Arthur asked sardonically and Merlin allowed himself to smile a little.

 

“Well, if I was I'd hardly admit it now, now would I?”

 

“That's not funny.” Arthur said, eyeing him.

 

“Sorry, sire,” Merlin grinned, ducking his head as if to hide the look from Arthur even as he peered up through his bangs to gauge his reaction.

 

“Yes well, enough of that,” Arthur waved his hand dismissively though he watched Merlin a moment longer before turning, “I’ve some armour that needs polishing and my boots need cleaning, and there’s some washing I’ve been meaning to get done-,” and just when Merlin was beginning to relax, “-and once you’ve done that, Morgana has requested your presence in her chambers.”

 

Merlin blinked, looking upwards to find Arthur grinning a little sadistically towards him.

 

“She mentioned something about a secret shared between the two of you?”

 

Merlin flushed. Arthur’s grin widened.

 

“I am not in love with Gwen.” Merlin felt the need to say. Arthur’s smile said he didn’t believe a word of it.

I love how you write these two...the banter just works :D

Oh, and for the record....Easy Virtue = fabulous.

And don't worry, you are not alone in the shallow pool of shallowness.

Ben Barnes and Colin Firth were my reasons for wanting to see it too :)

....and boy, it does NOT disappoint :P

Thank you! :)

And OMG! Easy Virtue was complete and utter LOVE. And the ending! It made me flail so hard. I want to see it again so much. After we got out the cinema my friend and I drove about looking for a 24hour supermarket to see if they had the soundtrack in XD haha. Alas we failed, but still, it's the thought that counts!

WOOP! Merlin fic for the win.

Also, OMG Easy Virtue! I went to watch it today, and I adored it. Ben Barnes = GUH! Colin Firth = GUH! Kris Marshall = GUH! Kristen Scott Thomas = GUH (even if I hated her character at the end) The house/music/general alloverness = ...GUH
(Ps, did you know Ben Barnes and Jessica Biel and Colin Firth did singing on the soundtrack! wooer)

I wants.
Campaspe: Merlin \\ NOMcs_whitewolf on November 16th, 2008 10:53 pm (UTC)
Thank you! X)

OMG!! It was amazing! And very GUH! And omg I want to see it again so hard. I loved everything about it XD XD XD

(And I gathered they would be from all the singing they were doing on screen! haha. After it finished my friend and I tried to find a 24hr supermarket selling the OST but we failed. WOE.)

<3 I am a secret Gwen/Merlin shipper, but the slashside of me overwins that small ship :P
Campaspe: Merlin \\ slash writes itselfcs_whitewolf on November 16th, 2008 10:55 pm (UTC)
I have to say, I'm not a Gwen/Merlin shipper at all. But I wrote what came to me, and after that episode it's just too much fun to tease poor Merlin about it!

(I am however really feeling the Merlin/Morganna ship. Eh?)
mrs_cj_harknessmrs_cj_harkness on November 17th, 2008 07:30 am (UTC)
I will agree, teasing Merlin is a *lot* of fun :P

(Oh yes, especially after last weeks epi ... I'm in two minds about that ship though)
