With Francine and Katchoo visiting, that meant that... showing Francine puppies. Because they were the girliest girls to ever girl when allowed to hang out.

"Arthur claims Brynn's no good at hunting, so he's using her to breed larger hounds," Merlin informed her sagely. While holding a wriggling puppy in his arms.

Big, badass wizard. Oh yeah. Live in fear.

[[For the one with him and anyone who might want to facepalm]]

Having the free time to get out his mobile phone and magic book--because one wasn't bad enough, he needed them both--Merlin was just going to make the best of today.

Okay, so he was idly studying while he looked up random things on the google. It wasn't his fault that the iPhone was so fun for it! He even found a picture he'd have to send to Francine once he remembered how again. He knew he should have kept that book about the phone...

[[Open for calls and that guy in Camelot!]]
bigdamndestiny: (got destiny?)
With the girls leaving today, a proper goodbye was necessary. In Arthur's chambers.

...look, it was the best place to get a bit of privacy. Nothing wrong with that. Plus, Merlin might get a chance to attempt one of those portal things indoors! You never knew when that would be helpful!

"We can visit you both after school starts," he said with far too much enthusiasm.

[[For those in Camelot]]
bigdamndestiny: (prat & idiot)
It was still the summer in Camelot, and that meant it was more than just a little too hot to stay in the castle on some days. Mostly ones where there wasn't a breeze to make the stone rooms less stifling.

So, this seemed to mean Arthur needed to take a quick hunting trip with his manservant.

His very, very grateful manservant.

"Are we actually hunting or...?"

[[For that guy]]
bigdamndestiny: (STALKING YOU)
Carrying a pile of blankets and sheets because this Camelot was not like your Camelot and they had tomatoes, damn it... Merlin made his way into the empty room to actually do his duties with their not so lovely guest.

Placing them down on the bed, he found that it looked as though no one touched it all the time she'd been here.

Which could have meant something nefarious or horrifyingly gross concerning the king.

But at least that creepy guy wasn't there.

[[FOR THAT CREEPY GUY... and a badger face]]
bigdamndestiny: (NINJA)
There were things about Camelot that Merlin had missed. Things like, not having to bribe squirrels with alcohol when you wanted to sneak around. Because people just tended to ignore him without needing a bribe.

Oh, being a servant once again.

But, for now, he was on the hunt for this assassin. Despite not knowing what he looked like. Or, you know, where he might be. But he was looking! In the tents of the other competitors.

Oh yeah. This would end well.

After rescuing a very stubborn pigeon from being shoved out the window by Gaius, Merlin had been thrilled and slightly confused by the message.

You certainly didn't hear about eating cat every day.

So, he wrote a careful response, putting it back into place with the bird. Who was one hell of a flyer if it came from an entirely different world and Merlin gave him credit for that. Credit and a bit of feed.

With any luck, it would make it back without Owain trying to eat it!

bigdamndestiny: (reading)
Merlin had his and Arthur's phones and chargers and a whole day to work on things. Clearly nothing could go wrong in the quest to charge the damned things. Not even with the lightning.

...which hadn't actually been tried yet. Damn Karla and her logic.

So, for now, Merlin was busy fiddling with the phones to make sure he wouldn't destroy anything.
bigdamndestiny: (magical)
After trying the spell for what felt like the milionth time all night--er--morning now, Merlin was really about ready to give up. It just didn't seem likely to somehow at the last minutes just work. You know, like it always did.

"On þæs ácíege dæg dæg fyrlen. A geond swelc stíþmægen geanbyrde," he said one last time, letting his head thump back against the tree he was leaning on.

Which, of course, meant something worked then.

The phone in his hand suddenly had a signal, like they'd hoped it would! Oh, and there was a glowy sort of mass in front of him, but the phone was clearly the important bit.

Though, since Merlin hadn't learned his lesson about portals, he walked right into it.

As you do.

[[ 'stablishy! ]]
bigdamndestiny: (NINJA)
After everyone (IE, Arthur) had gone to bed for the evening, Merlin had snuck out to give the phone another try.

They worked for everyone else, right? They had to work here. Even if that meant Merlin needed to give it a little extra oomph to get there. What the oomph would be... he honestly wasn't sure. But he was going to keep trying until something worked.

"On þæs ácíege dæg dæg fyrlen. A geond swelc stíþmægen geanbyrde," he said to the phone that just blinked to inform him that it's battery was nearly dead.

Yes, this could take all night.

bigdamndestiny: (NINJA)
Merlin was not sneaking into his room. That would imply he had something to hide.

Which he didn't


"Are you avoiding me?" Gaius asked, coming out of nowhere on him. Those eyebrows were accusing him of something already.

"What?" Merlin asked, laughing nervously. "Why would I do that?"

The eyebrows rose imperiously.


"I--" Well, he needed to tell him sometime... "You were busy!"

That didn't help.

"Merlin, I am frequently busy, and yet I always manage to find time for you in my schedule," said Gaius, in that not-quite-accusing way that he has. "My boy, what on God's Earth has you so skittish?"

"I told Arthur," Merlin blurted out in one quick spurt. There. All said. "About me."

Gaius' eyes widened almost comically large. "You what?"

"He took it well!"

"Well obviously, since you're still alive," Gaius replied, pacing away from him.

Merlin bit his lip, shrugging helplessly. "I had to."

[[For those eyebrows and SP]
