Seven Deadly Sins (Merlin drabbles, 7 X 100 words)

mood: highThe enemy haz lasers NOES O.O

Sloth & Pride are companion drabbles. Everything else stands on its own. I'm not cool enough to make all seven drabbles related, sadly.
I want to do another sins set in the future (with different characters & prefferrably an interconnected storyline) because these ones come across as sympathetic & rather tame.

*******

"Gluttony" - Gaius, G
Gaius grew up in a small village where going hungry during lean winters was a fact of life.Collapse )

"Wrath" - Uther, Igraine, G
Given time, perhaps his queen could have tempered his iron gripCollapse )

"Envy" - Morgana, PG
If only she could trade her visionsCollapse )

"Sloth" - Merlin, Arthur, G
If he had polished Arthur's armour by hand, this wouldn't have happened.Collapse )

"Pride" - Arthur, Merlin, G
Arthur had always prided himself of his judgment.Collapse )

"Lust" - Lancelot/Gwen, Arthur, PG-13
The first time it happened, they were young and carefree in love.Collapse )

"Greed" - Mordred, Arthur, G
'Your precious prince, now grown old to be a pitiful king.'Collapse )

1. Is there a Merlin LDWS comm. somewhere? We have Merlin tweetfic comm., there should be a Merlin LDWS, yeah?
LJ, IJ, DW, doesn't matter.

2. Also, LDWS comm.s, why the high upper limit? 499-word = flopsy, not a drabble. And 1K words = ficlet, not a drabble.
This is what modding a drabble community get you, you turn into a purist without realizing it =P

3. You know what Merlin pastiche hasn't been done yet? Merlin/FMA. So, Merlin characters in an FMA-like world.
Consider this: magic ~ balance // alchemy ~ equivalent exchange.

Merlin saves Arthur's life but Something Goes Horribly Wrong. Arthur comes back to life, but now he's caught in a never-ending loop of Saving the Day and Dying a Bloody, Tragic Death at a Terribly Young Age.
After the however many times Merlin had Arthur dying in his arms, Merlin swears to break the circle. But what does Merlin have left to offer up in exchange (and not having Arthur die on him again?)

Depressing plotbunny is depressing.
