Elvish features + undead army + complicated revolutionary plans + attractive firelighting. SHE IS MADE OF GOOD THINGS.
And because revolutions are always more fun with friends, she leaves Morgana an enticing note in a pretty gift box and peppers the decorated paper with hugs and kisses. Morgana assumes she's scored a first date.
Morgana's Pulling Cloak works: physical contact is achieved in the first ten seconds.
However, Morgana proves to be a crap date and spends the evening mostly talking about herself and how much she hates daddy. Morgause looks as sympathetic for as long as she can manage...
Then figures it's easier to give her a gentle shove in the right direction.
But because she still loves Morgana, packs in a bit of cradling before getting on her effortless swish.
That AU where Eowyn kills the Witch King then takes his place? Yeah, happening here.
That AU where Eowyn kills the Witch King, pull the Nazgul over to her side and then single-handedly storms Barad Dur? Yeah, definitely happening here.
Mean time, Morgana hasn't heard from Morgause since the first date and agrees to have a drink from Merlin; Morgause's spidey senses detect it.
Merlin tries to work the chemistry; Morguase chokes on it.
And filled with ANGRYFACE ANGER, she hares off to save her comrade in arms.
"We have chemistry!" declares Merlin. Morgause's response is to bodily pull Morgana away and stick a few quick lines into him.
Then, A LOVE THING HAPPENS. I'd say more, but am distracted by Morgause in her gauntlet.
Sign of love #43, SHE WAIVES HER REVOLUTION FOR MORGANA.
In return for holding off the revolution, Merlin agrees to relinquish Morgana. Morgause, whose fierceness was pwning this castle ten minutes ago, now has sorrowful sparkly tears for her girl.
Arthur comes in to say fwiw, he used to have UST with Morgana too; Morgause politely tells him to bite it.
Morgause finally sweeps off with Morgana still in her arms, and the knights of Camelot are left staring, nonplussed, at what they understand to be the world's Most Dramatic Elopement Ever.
I LOVE HER SHE MUST KEEP COMING BACK WITH GREAT PLANS.
...Is there a comm for her yet?
