Like OK Merlin. It totally looks like you gave them that look because you’re mad that Arthur’s not with Gwen instead.

3 Year Anniversary of Ashes to Ashes’ ending || 21/05/2010
“…A group of people who’ve become really very special to me over time, and… And I think it’s very important at occasions like this to… Well, to let people know your, your real feelings about them. And as I might not be with you for very much longer, I just wanted to say that… well, that, that I love you. Each and, each and every one of you. I love you. So, bon voyage!“
I cried so much during that final episode. Oh my…
HungerGames!AU Intelligent, cunning District Seven boy, Merlin Emrys is used to a life of poverty, hunger and fear. So, when he is reaped in the 63rd Hunger Games, although he is terrified, deep down, he thinks that there may be a chance of him breaking this cycle: after all, he is sly, fast and resourceful and there may be the slightest possibility that he could claim the crown and return home, with a better life awaiting him and his mother. Arthur Pendragon is the son of District Two’s mayor, Uther. Strong, handsome, arrogant and courageous, Arthur knows that he can return home with the glory of winning etched across his face – he can feel it in his bones: Arthur Pendragon was born to win the 63rd Hunger Games and no one is going to stop him.
Merlin, hiding his hopes and his dreams behind his charming smile and intuitive eyes and Arthur, playing on his looks and bold confidence, first notice each other on the night of the interviews. Merlin is in awe of Arthur’s brash courage and Arthur is in turn intrigued by Merlin’s searing wit and charm. But, it is their last night outside of the arena and they both have far more pressing things to think about. After all, they’re not both going to make it out of this alive.
They’re thrown into the arena and Arthur becomes one of the Careers but Merlin runs and hides in the forest, relying on his knowledge of the plants to keep him alive. The Games rage on, tributes die and all of the Career pack, bar Arthur, and their supplies are destroyed in a flood and Merlin is still alive, watching from the trees. So, when Arthur stumbles unwillingly into one of Merlin’s traps, he is hungry, vulnerable and scared. Merlin is ready to kill Arthur (he doesn’t want to, but if it’s his only way of creating a better life for his mother, he’d do anything) but, Arthur pleads with him and Merlin sees more than just the arrogant, spoilt Career – he sees so much more and he sees a vulnerable side that he simply cannot kill. So, Merlin and Arthur strike up a deal. They’re allies.
Their alliance blossoms into far more – they become friends, maybe even more. Merlin teaches Arthur how to find food and hunt animals; Arthur shows Merlin the basics of combat and, at the same time, they both begin to learn more about each other – their past, their hopes for the future and their dreams. Although neither will admit it to the other one, they think they might have found love. So, when Arthur is hit by another tribute’s arrow, Merlin is devastated – he frantically tries to heal Arthur’s wounds but to no avail and so, Merlin has to watch his friend die in front of him, and grants his final request.
“Just… hold me…”
