Merlin pulled a face at this, "I don't think anyone could bear it with the way he goes on about absolutely everything and anything that comes into his mind." With a small laugh he smirked at Elyan, "and I wouldn't wish that upon anyone." As much as Merlin liked Gwaine, he didn't like him enough to spend days on end locked in a room with him. He'd already made a journey with him to the perilous lands, and it wasn't just the lands that lived up to the name. Gwaine's mouth hadn't really closed for the duration of the journey. At first Merlin had been thankful for the time that was passing, slowly realising that perhaps next time he should look up a gagging spell before ever setting out on a long journey with Gwaine again.
"There is a reason you are such a friend to Arthur and to all of us really. You may not be a knight, but there is nothing ordinary about you, Merlin." The warlock frowned slightly at this. What exactly did he mean? "In fact if I had to describe you, I'm pretty sure I'd say...extraordinary," Merlin looked at him blankly. "In a good way or a bad way?" he asked. His mother had always said that he was special, Gauis had implied it once or twice and had made a few comments about the brilliance of his magic, but hearing praise from someone who had exactly no idea who Merlin really was or what he was capable of was enough to realise that he was being recognised for something that he was doing right without the aid of magic being the main key of praise. This made Merlin smile warmly.
"Thankyou anyway," he began - "hearing that from...well, from someone other than my mother or Gauis shows that im doing something right in being Arthur's dogsbody". Shooting a sly glance at Elyan, he sat back further and shifted more to make himself comfortable.
