HAHA IT’S BEEN A YEAR AND I STILL CRY WHEN I THINK ABOUT ARTHUR PENDRAGONS DEATH ISN’T THAT FUNNY HAHAHA HAHAHA HAHAHAHA
Merlin AU where they are the boxcar children
Can I please get a merlin ouat cross over ASAP pls
Of you think gryffindors and slytherins can’t get along then how come Merlin and arthur were best friends?
What is this Merlin2return campaign?
It disturbs me that someone is pushing for the show to return using past cast interviews taken out of context or while the actors were under the contract (and might still be) obligations to say certain things. By doing this we are hurting…
Are there actually people who do this shit? Are you guys seriously? The actors did an amazing job, but they’ve moved on. They’re branching out, doing different things and even if we did not like the ending, we fucking GOT an ending. For fucks sakes.
also that bit about homosexuality as gross and I cannot support a movement that thinks young viewers can’t know or hear about homosexuality (mind you, I wouldn’t support it anyway). GOD GUYS YOU GOT YOUR THING OKAY, I KNOW YOU LOVE THE SHOW BUT THINGS END. OKAY
Friendly reminder that Gwaine died thinking he failed Arthur, the Knights of the Round Table, Camelot and Percival<3
Last of the remnants from AN. There’s extras of this print as well, so I’m looking into ways to sell these online. If anyone knows of a good, reliable site to do so, send a message my way, please!
sometimes I’m okay
then I remember the merlin finale and
I’m just not okay
As much as I like to pretend that I don’t read fanfiction, I think the cat is well and truly out of the bag by now. So! Here are some of my (extremely long-winded) thoughts on magic reveal fics (mostly bitching at the official Merlin writers, unfortunately). Illustrated by slightly random gifs for the purpose of breaking up the WALL OF TEXT. Also, spoilers ahoy! LOTS OF SPOILERS. Spoilers for the WHOLE DAMN SHOW.
I agree with a lot of this. The ending was rushed as hell, I hated that episode where Merlin was like “MAGIC IS BAD”. Albion wasn’t united under magic—even though they’ve been promising it for 5 seasons. I won’t mention the disgrace of what they did to Mordred—I mean the whole ‘he betrayed him for a girl’ is kiiiiiind of… dumb. There, I said it. SO DUMB. SO SO DUMB.
To me, if it was supposed to end at 5 seasons, they should have had the magic reveal at the end of Season 4. The ending would have been just as heartbreaking without the magic reveal being there (hello, Arthur died).
Plus yeah, what the fuck happened to Morgana?
some comments and reviews i read, stated that they’re left unsatisfied because there’s no battle between merlin/emrys and morgana. and how the last battle “wasn’t epic at all”.
but what if,
Merlin wasn’t a story about magic, Merlin wasn’t about war and revenge, Merlin wasn’t about camelot and albion.
what if, Merlin is simply a love story between merlin and arthur. more like, merlin’s devotion and love to arthur. and how he fight to keep him alive and safe for so many years.
it’s not about the greatest sorcerer in the world, it’s simply about a boy with so much power, who sacrificed everything, even his own life, for arthur.
he can choose to be bad like morgana, he can brag to the world about his true power and recieve the credit he deserve. but he choose to serve arthur and stay by his side.
and in the end of the series, there’s no epic battle, there’s no victory, only merlin and arthur. and how they finally realize how much the love and need each other. and in his last moment, arthur finally admit that not all sorcerers are bad, including merlin, and that merlin brought peace to camelot.
Title: For Your Information
Pairing: Merlin/Arthur (AU, Modern Age)
Summary: Merlin sighs. “After your…announcement,” he explains, “your father decided he needed a bit more information. Which is apparently where I come in. I’m sort of like his gay tutor, it’s hard to explain.”
My Thoughts: Oh my goodness. I laughed SEVERAL times reading this one! It was funny, and perfect and it had Understanding!Uther, who still manages to be a complete asshole. It showed a nice relationship between Uther and Merlin :) A+!
hmmm time to be lonely and read Merther fics
I have come to realise my #1 weakness is Merlin AUs
And in fact just AUs in general
It’s all your favourite characters in a new, exciting and brimming-with-potential scene set
What’s not to fucking love
“It’s your destiny Merlin!” has been oft-repeated throughout the show. Kilgarrah tends to be a prime motivator, always adding new aspects to his destiny. However the core is still the same: bring about a magic-friendly, united Albion.
But at the end, what did he tell Merlin? That his destiny was completed, that he’d done his part so that Arthur would rise again when the Isles needed him the most, despite Merlin being built up for this destiny all throughout seasons 1-4. I can only conclude that his destiny was to prevent the Golden Age. That Merlin was supposed to choose Mordred’s death in the Dsir. That Arthur was supposed to die, and that Merlin was supposed to wait for him for millennia. That Guinevere was supposed to take the throne and Mordred was supposed to destroy Camelot. That the Saxons were supposed to invade post-Arthur and wipe out Celtic England.
It was all supposed to happen.
Not to mention, in the Dsir, the entire episode arc basically shows how Merlin’s being manipulated into picking a certain side. The “mouthpiece of the Goddess” lied to him. They knew that his entire decision hinged on Arthur’s safety, and he had to kill Mordred to ensure it. So he agrees to the choice that he thinks will eliminate Mordred. But wait, Mordred isn’t dead.
Basically, Kilgarrah, the Triple Goddess and the Dsir were working together to prevent the golden age.
And I sound like a conspiracy nut.
whelp, this is it. The creators of Merlin have basically told me I was right to say that Merlin and Arthur were buttfucking every time they were off screen.
