So we have 1000 [and counting] replies on the AG Fan Forum! Which obviously means that I have not let you down and there will be a very fun celebration week on here! To kick off the event, I've decided to give you all a little suprise and tell you what you all mean to this club. Just what amazing girls you are! So here you go

What does it mean to be an Arwen fan?
By definition, an Arwen fan, is someone who ships Arthur and Gwen from the hit BBC television series, Merlin. There are different ranges to being a fan of them: a surface shipper, a moderate shipper, and an absolute hardcore shipper!

What does it mean to a part of the amazing community of Arwen fans on the Arthur and Gwen spot here on Fanpop?

It means that you meet HARDCORE AND ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL PEOPLE who love Arwen as much as you do. How do I know this? Because I've experienced the utter love here and the big family we have created. All these fans can give you 50+ reasons why they love Arwen and 50 or more reasons why they love the Arwen spot. And that's what I'm here to do. I, Issie, am here to give fifty reasons why I love the Arwen spot! Congrats girls, once again, for making 1000!

50. Because when I first came to this spot, we were barely close to 100 fans, but in a year's time, we have reached over 400 fans!
49. Because each and every one of you contribute to this spot with your beautiful comments, gorgeous fanarts, and amazing filming pictures/videos, etc.
48. Because you are all so unique and wonderful and because of that we have been able to create a very big, happy family. It makes me cry of happiness just thinking about this!
47. Because we never argue! We merely, merge our thoughts and ideas together to create a big agreement!

...Okay, I'm going to go into individuals because I think each of you (who I see a lot) deserves a shout-out!...
46. Naima. What would the spot do without you? You are its backbone, its beauty, and what keeps it moving. You bring us to-die-for news from Pierrefonds and you are absolutely one-of-a-kind. You're smart, funny, and quick to come up with great ideas. ♥
45. Rose. You keep this spot going with your kindness and compassion. You're always there to be sympathetic or to give us a smile. And the Arwen videos you have made and uploaded always bring a light to this spot. ♥
44. Melissa. You're fun, enthusiastic, and awesome! Without your thought-out input or your fan-girly Arthur obsession, our spot would be nowhere as light as it is now! You're quick to see two sides and you are always willing to be lend out a hand. ♥

38. Ella. After my surgery, I remember you introducing yourself and you were so sweet! You still are. You always bring a smile to everyone's faces and you are a really wonderful girl! ♥

Oh. My. GOODNESS. Issie, Sweetie, this is just so precious and sweet. I took a break from my housework to come to my favorite spot on the internet and I see this. I'm probably the oldest one on here in years, but not in heart. You girlies are the best; and this is just another proof. I know even better now why I enjoy all you sweeties so much and why I love this club so much.

Some months ago, someone lent my daughter dvds of the first two seasons but it wasn't until I saw this gorgeous blond haired, blue eyed, fair skinned, prince guy staying in a cottage with a lovely curly haired, brown eyed, light brown skinned, little maid girl that I fell in love with the show. Then when I saw that kiss, I was hooked for life! And I love each and every one of the fifty reasons you gave because they are all so true!! We hardcore Arwen fans love our couple and love each other as well.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write this, Issie. I'm sure as others read it they'll be blessed too.

Btw, I want you all to call me "Nanna."

Wow..Thank you for the wonderful article. I couldn't agree with you more! I only recently discovered Merlin and now I can't get enough! When I went online to search for Merlin stuff I came across Fanpop, and the Arwen spot. After reading one or two articles and comments I was hooked and you're right; it IS my fave spot of all the others that I am a member of! The way everyone interacts on here is really positive and I have met some great people from all over this crazy, wonderful world we live in. I can't wait for S4 and to continue discussing all things Arwen with all of you lovely people. Stay true. Stay you. xox Islanda

SUCH a beautiful article! Every single word is so true! It's now been over a year since our beloved show ended, but Arwen remains one of my all-time favorite couples, and our ship honestly has one of the best and most welcoming fandoms I have ever seen.
Arwen is epic and will never die, and the gorgeous Arwen fandom is equally epic and will never die!
