My recipient requested the following: Trapped in a winter storm, one is injured - afterwards, during the recovery, the other keeps vigil; AU-magic reveal happens earlier...angst results and maybe Merlin has to leave Camelot during a terrible blizzard because Arthur has trouble making peace with the reveal (Arthur could go and rescue him).

Title: Perfect imperfections
Rating: G
Pairing/s: Arthur/Merlin
Character/s: Arthur, Merlin
Summary: Arthur musing about Merlin's imperfections
Warnings: none
Word Count: 100
Prompt: #223 Imperfection
Author's Notes: none
------------------------------------
He's ridiculous really, all big ears and too-thin face. Merlin tramping around the room, that grotty neckerchief of his emphasizing that long throat, his hands delicate and yet so strong when wielding a sword or fending off bandits.

Arthur wanted to throw something at him for making him feel this way. Merlin was a contradiction of soft and hard, sweet and sour, turning words into banter or quarrels. But his smile could light up a room and Arthur wanted nothing more than to wrap his arms around Merlin and never let go.

Perfect imperfection.

And Arthur loved him for it.
