what if one day when merlin tries to remember how arthur’s corner of mouth would twitch when he tried to not to laugh at him even tho they both knew he wanted to or the way how arthur would just sway on his feet some morning, still half asleep and muttering how merlin is the worst manservant ever, when merlin dressed him and that’s when he realizes that he doesn’t remember all the little things anymore
so he starts go trough his memories
what if one day he doesn’t remember anymore how gwaine’s laugh rang around loud and bold, how warm gwen’s smile or how gentle lancelot voice were?
what if he forgets arthur?
he doesn’t have any pictures, anything tangible to remind him of his friends
just his memories and dreams
which fade with time
what if he’ll forget them all and not recognize them when they come back
