  1. No need to comment!
    I also read Will as a jealous ex. 🙂 I would LOVE Will and Gwaine being best buds or even love interests.

  2. I don’t know why I never thought about it but now that you mentioned Will coming to Camelot with Merlin, I really need a fic where Will becomes a knight of Camelot (after not dying in Moment of Truth). And jealousy, ships (moresomes optional), and stuff happen.
