I like the cat. I commend you for this knowledge. You are an amazing person. That aside, the story is pretty good, a couple of minor spelling errors aside. Arthur's behavior, however, is a little unrealistic. But other than that, an amusing tale. (I have read all of it, by the way. Just commenting here, because of the cat. w)

Morgana sipped her glass of champagne and looked around the room.
...YAY! That means the baby's here!:):)
"It's not mine, is it?"
"No! How could it – it wouldn't be – "
She did a double-take, and looked closely at him. Mr Hairy Chest – was he, was he, was he Mr Hairy Chest?
"Um," she said, "probably not."
Morgana made to pick Mordred up but Arthur made a noise in his half-sleep and cuddled him closer.
Merlin gave the stranger an embarrassed look. "He's very protective," he told him.

She said to Arthur, "Look. I don't mind you staying here with me, honestly. But I have reservations about that wife of yours."
...A HA! And here the mystery shall be solved!:):P
"Ohhh," said Arthur, nodded like he didn't already know.
" – and I was using it to make myself sound smarter."
Merlin was still giggling and Arthur rolled his eyes, trying and failing to keep a straight face. "So in other words," Arthur summarised, still murmuring low as if sharing a secret, "you were trying to impress me."
...*FLIES Backward, Out Of Chair, Due To The Amount of Cuteness in That Singular Moment*:):):):P:P:P
Morgana stabbed down her guilt with an invisible blade and said, deep and clear, "Stop flirting with my boyfriend."
For a moment Arthur said nothing and Morgana listened carefully for any tell-tale sound – and there it was: a small sigh.
"No," said Arthur eventually, "I don't think I will," and hung up.
...I honestly don't know whether to LOVE that for being a sweet moment, or to call it out as being a good insult (and also feel bad for Morgana).
Arthur inhaled sharply. "What are you doing?"
"Thought you were going for a hug," Merlin mumbled into Arthur's jacket.
"No – oh, fuck it." Arthur hugged him back, arms slipping around Merlin's neck and shoulders, and Merlin pushed in closer until Arthur's back was against the door. Merlin moved his face to Arthur's neck and inhaled, and Arthur made a small movement, like a shiver, and that was the moment – that small acceptance, which changed everything. And Merlin had the confidence now to slide his hands under Arthur's jacket and up his sides, eyelashes brushing Arthur's cheek, and Arthur moved, just a little, soft mouth sliding down Merlin's jaw and to his mouth.
...Oh for God's sake...the woman could be in LABOR and you guys are MAKING OUT...!:(:P
He quickly waved her apology away. "No, it's okay." He smiled at her, then awkwardly came to the side of the bed and gave her a kiss on her forehead. "I know you haven't been yourself, lately," he told her, soft and affectionate. She gave him a watery smile in turn, grabbed his wrist and spoke to Arthur once again in that cold tone: "Do you take back what you said earlier?"
...NOOOO! OK, she's gotta know that being in love with a gay guy is NOT gonna end well...:P:P
"Yeah," Arthur whispered, not looking at all surprised. Then he grabbed Merlin by his shirt collar, pushed him backwards into the walk-in wardrobe, and kissed him hard on the mouth.
...WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !:):):):)
"I have always been considerate of Morgana's feelings," Arthur continued, "but right now," – he brushed a kiss against Merlin's unmoving lips – "I want to be really, really selfish."
"I have to tell you something," Merlin blurted out abruptly, then pushed on, knowing he needed to get this out now before he lost his nerve. "Morgana's not my girlfriend."
...It's gonna go badly but I don't care, cuz now we're even closer to the Merthur happy ending.:P:P:P:):)
Uther's face did this strange thing where it twitched a bit, and he blinked rapidly. "Well..." He hesitated; everyone watched. "Thank you for your honesty."
Morgana blinked at him. "That's it?"
"And what would you have me do?" said Uther, looking a tad tired and worn-out. "Send you to your room?"
"Father," said Arthur, taking Uther's attention away. "I too have something to confess."
...I hope Uther travels with his pal Advil...:P:P
"Yeah," whispered Merlin, "I'd like that."

Oh God, I LOVE what you did with Freya...!:):P
Merlin looked at him curiously, tilting his head to the side. "I don't get it."
Arthur waved that finger around again. "Don't think I didn't notice that ex of yours looked like a boy."
...OOH! Pretty AND smart! Go for it, Merlin; he's the perfect catch.:P Are we going to find out what happened with Sophia though?
Arthur tilted his chin down, looking Merlin right in the eye, close and affectionate. "I saw the hot blonde girl she was with; she broke up with you to pursue women, didn't she?"
"Huh?" said Merlin, then: "Oh. Oh! Yes, yes she's a lesbian, alright."
Arthur clapped his hands together, triumphant. "Can't hide anything from me, Merlin."
...*sighs and hangs head*...Damn. So close, Arthur...:P:P

A week later, Merlin went back to Ealdor to visit his parents and best friend Will. Merlin sat on his single bed in his childhood bedroom, walls covered with posters of Top Gun, Placebo and Brad Pitt. Will stood in front of him and crossed his arms.
"Gorgeous, you say?"
"Stunning," said Merlin a teasing quirk of his eyebrows. "Blonde, blue eyes - but a complete prat."
Will snorted. "You're in love."
...Boy - talk in the childhood bedroom...:Phaving a sense of nostalgia once in a while is very important, I find...:):P
And that was it; Morgana snapped like a rubber band pulled too tight and she stood up, leaned her belly on top the wood of her desk, reached out with manicured hands and grabbed Steve's tie, yanking him forward and out of his seat with a strength only a hormonal pregnant woman could manage.
"Listen to me, you glutinous arsehole," said Morgana, quietly and carefully. "If I go on maternity leave and come back and find that you have weaselled me out of my job, I will hunt you down, rip off you balls and shove them so far down your throat you'll choke then shit them out. Then I'll piss on you."
...WOOOOOOOOT!:):):) GO PREGNANT LADY!:):):):P:P
Three youths ran past and knocked Arthur off the edge just as a train was arriving and Merlin sprinted the last few steps, grabbed Arthur's upper arms and pulled him to safety. The train rushed past them, whipping their coats hems with the whoosh of air.
...Oh man, you're SO great at modernizing moments from the TV show! So great!:):)
Arthur didn't say anything, but Merlin felt like he was being watched. When he looked back up again, Arthur was glaring with calm anger. "And what about Morgana, and the baby? How do you suppose you're going to support her?"
"She's really rich," Merlin blurted, and regretted it instantly when Arthur's jaw clenched.
"Are you trying to tell me," Arthur bit out slowly, "you're only marrying Morgana for her money?"
"Yes," said Merlin, because his brain had said factually, 'she paid you the first time!'
...ah, word - vomit...such an entertaining, yet terrible sickness...:P:P
Merlin laughed then abruptly stopped on a shocked gasp. He stared at Arthur. "Oh my god."
Arthur self-consciously wiped his mouth of crumbs. "What is it?"
"You're funny," Merlin murmured, one hand holding his breakfast drink and the other a banana. "You're not meant to be funny."
...*Laughs ASS Off*:P:P:P
"Say something else," she requested.
Arthur pursed his lips. "I suppose Merlin should come – "
"He's working," said Morgana quickly, wanting Arthur to talk more.
...AW...! Baby loves his Uncle Arthur!:):):)

Arthur turned to Merlin, eyes sweeping over him briefly, before asking, "Do I know you?"
Merlin smiled and held out his hand. "I'm Merlin."
"So I don't know you."
...YES! SO glad you included that!:):):)
"I'm gay," Merlin blurted.
Morgana raised an eyebrow. "I'm pregnant and may fart during the night."
Merlin walked down the aisle, hands in his trouser pockets, casually trying to look for Morgana. His steps faltered, however, when he looked back down the red carpet.
Arthur was watching him.
Merlin kept walking, but he was slower, so much slower, like time was pressing on and around him. It was just – the expression on Arthur's face: lips parted, expression serious yet soft. And Merlin could not look away, felt as if he could never look away.
"I have been friends with Arthur for a long time," Lancelot began, his speech tinged with a kind of bleakness only Lancelot could accomplish. "He's a great man: honourable, decent, chivalrous – "
..."Then Sophia came along," Lancelot continued, "and Arthur changed..."
"So you get to go to Tahiti on your honeymoon," Merlin continued; "life is just not fair. And I'm... going to London." Merlin was unsure why he was bothering to talk to Arthur at all, except perhaps to keep up the pretence that they were almost brothers-in-law. But also because he sort of... wanted to talk to Arthur, to suss him out.
Arthur took a deep breath. "Well. You've been terrible. Really I mean it – the worst person I would ever have chosen for Morgana."
...Reminds me of the balcony scene they had in "Moment of Truth" in season/series 1.:) Is that what you were going for?
