Title:Finally where I was meant to be
Rating:G
Pairing/s:Merwaine
Character/s:Gwaine
Summary:An exchanged smile was all it took for Gwaine to know he wouldn’t leave Camelot.
Warnings:None
Word Count:100
Prompt:269. Belonging
Author's Notes:Not betaed. For once, I wanted to write a real 100 words drabble!

An exchanged smile was all it took for Gwaine to know he wouldn’t leave Camelot.

The way Merlin looked at him, the warmth of his smile. It made Gwaine feel at home like he had never in the past twenty years.

After leaving his family, Gwaine had wandered from town to town. Never had he found a reason to stay more than a few weeks.

In Camelot it was different. In Camelot there was Merlin. Merlin who needed Gwaine. Merlin who made him feel like he belonged here, in this town, in this castle, in this room, in these arms.

Wow, this was great! Congrats on the drabble. Those things are difficult to write, and it takes a lot of discipline to tame the muse enough for it to not explode into thousands of words of... words.

I really loved how you got into Gwaine's head in so few words! The love he has for Merlin is very real here. Kudos to you!

Aww, yeah, I'm here for all the Merlin/Gwaine! He definitely stayed in Camelot because of Merlin :)

I agree. Gwaine totally stayed in Camelot because of Merlin. And congrats on the 100 words!

Awwwwwwww. Yes, Gwaine, stay. For Merlin.

Of course he stayed for Merlin!... and perhaps the never ending supply of roasted chicken, too ;-)
