Uther Pendragon, in an effort to boost his political image, funds a new wing at a children's hospital. He sends Arthur through every month to make an appearance at the hospital, shake hands, kiss babies, and check to see that his obscenely large portrait in the hall is properly lit. On one such occasion, Arthur has a mishap and is mildly hurt (bump on the head, scrape, particularly bad hangnail, etc).

The Right Motivation, by leashy-bebes

Merlin might only be twenty four but he's already starting to doubt that 'adults' is the right collective noun for a room of eighteen year olds (most days he favours 'headache').
