1- In 2x10 she choosen to save her sister over kill Uther; because if she was "pure evil" like her haters say, she could sacrifice her sister and kill Uther (but she don't, and she could do it if she wanted because is a powerful woman, but no, she prefer to save her love sister when Merlin "good guy" abondoned/poisoned Morgana);
2- she could be villainess, but she is loyal to persons that loves:
When Morgana was afraid without nobody to help her, who's in her side? Morgause. When Morgana was a overrated, who's respect her for herself? Morgause. And who's protect her when even Merlin and Gaius did nothing to save her for herself or Uther's abuse? Morgause!
3- i think that underneath it all... She fights for what she believes it:
because i read in the bio of her and she was a high prietless and we can imagine the horror that pritless have seen of practicals magics. And if you can see is Uther's hate fault for it (he until wants to kill her and she was a baby because she have... Magic). And for it she believes that her sister is the "salvation" (we can see it in 4x1 when she sacrifice herself to what she thinks that is right).

With Merlin something I personally came to realize is that good and evil in this show is far from black and white. Many seem to agree that the good guys truly are the good guys and the bad guys are the bad guys. I have a different take; I feel like the villains really aren't that bad, they just want some security...some safety...the ability to be themselves. And some of the good guys (yes my finger is pointed at you Uther) aren't really all that good.

First and foremost, all the villains seem to just not want to be persecuted. Nimueh being the prim example. This woman just wanted to make sure her kind could survive. The druids (considered evil in the show) they really aren't evil at all...they just want to survive. They didn't really fight when Uther's army came for them (when they had Morgana), they fled. Which brings me to the fact that even though the 'good guys' saw them fleeing--surrendering--they still attacked. They saw Morgana fleeing too...and not once did they consider that she wanted to stay with the druids. Yes the knights were just doing as they were instructed--hence why my finger remains pointed at the one and only Uther.

5. Merlin

Merlin I think has this different sort of handsomeness. He's not your classic blonde haired, tough, physically fit guy. He's kind on the scawny side but I think he's cute enough to make the top 5. He has a really nice face and I love his hair. And his eyes I adore his eyes. They are such a brilliant blue. Merlin is proof that a person doesn't have to meet the typical standards to be good looking.

4. Mordred

Don't get me wrong he was a really cutie pie when he was younger, but all things considered I'm not referring to adorable little Mordred. I'm talking about the teenage Mordred. I like his dark curls, I suppose I have a thing for dark hair, dark features in general as I really do like them on Mordred. He has lovely eyes. And over all I like his clothing style.

3. Arthur

Arthur is more classically handsome; blonde hair, blue eyes. But there's nothing wrong with that, in fact it helped put him in the top 3. Like Merlin, he's got a nice facial structure and head shape. The man is simply pleasing to look at. Both he and Merlin have wonderfully charming...

I pretty much have made an article like this for every character I ever loved. Plus for this fandom I realized that Morgause isn't really all that popular...I mean I haven't seen much hate either but she simply isn't that popular. Back on the favorite character poll a whopping 1% of voters said she was her favorite so I kind of wanted to state why I liked her so much. So here we go;

What a better way to introduce an article about why I like a character than to mention how much I loved said characters introduction. Excuse my language but Morgause's entrance was completely badass. When she first appears on screen you see her stating that Arthur's life was going to change...nothing too special. But her official introduction, the second time we see her, she's dropping guards to the floor like it's no problem. And she did it with only a sword and no magic. She proceeds to stomp right up to the castle like she owns the place and interrupts the knighting ceremony with a rather admirable degree of confidence. Like hot damn! As if that isn't completely kickass enough, Morgouse then stands before Arthur and is pretty much "bitch, fight me!" without an vocalization. After he asks...

So I’ve been reading a lot of meta lately, and some of the responses I’ve seen have got my hackles up. Read at your peril.

Goddamn but I do hate queer-baiting. I hate the whole concept it represents, I hate that it happens, but most of all, I hate that certain quarters in a fandom will use it as an excuse to discourage/disprove any points a gay ship has towards becoming canon.

"Oh, Regina and Emma touched one another and made literal magic? Queer baiting!"

"Oh, Castiel told Dean that he was his primary motivation in abandoning heaven? Queer baiting!"

"Oh, Merlin took off Arthur’s pants and wrestled around with him for a bit? Queer baiting!"

Listen. TPTB have lots of reasons for including stuff in their shows/movies/stories. Maybe they introduce a POC because they’ve been criticized for a very white cast. Maybe they amp up a female character’s competence because they don’t want to be accused of sexism. Maybe they bring in a funny animal because kids like funny animals. And maybe they do stuff because it actually ties into the story they’re trying to tell.

Hi there everyone!

I'm a writer and I'd love some international support for my story that I already gave to Colin Morgan personally as a gift. He inspired me for a certain character and it was given more as a sign of gratitude for the inspiration rather than for him to read it. No idea if he ever would, but I just hope the effort I put into translating it just for him made him happy that day. What a brilliant actor ^^ Anyways - I've created a club and this account itself for communicating with future readers. I don't want to bother anyone with it, but how else could you let people know your story even exists before it's published?

I promise I have put a lot of effort into it! It took me three years to create this world and the characters. Maybe you'll fall in love with "The Golden Heart". I'm striving for an international release of the book and what I need for that is support, support, support and lots of love!

I love everyone who tries to do the smallest thing to help!

The lightning craked and thunder roared.Morgana lay wounded in a large forest. She breathed slowly praying for a miracle. Merlin ran threw the forest jumping over fallen trees and branches his heart racing. He had to find the ingredient for the antidote before it got even darker.Morgana could hear sounds of movement. She tried to scream but only a small squek for help came out. She kicked her feet against a branch hoping it would cetch someones attention. Merlin stopped running. He took deep breaths. He felt light headed from running. There standing at his feet were three healing mushrooms. He bent down and picked them putting them in his brown sachel. He sat on a fallen tree trying to catch his breath. A small flowing stream flowed beside where Merlin sat all the way to the e border of Camelot. He heard the sound of twigs breaking. He leapt from the trunk of the tree looking around him cautiosly. There at the foot of an old oak tree badly wounded was Morgana. Merlin tried to look away to pretend as though his eyes had been miss led but it was usless he was drawn to her. He walked slowly,catiously to where Morgana lay. Her eyes met his gaze. She wriggled about trying to stand up...

This is a ficlet I wrote about eighteen months ago after season 3 finished airing. I just thought I'd share it here. Enjoy!

------------------------------------------------------------------
"Sire?" Uther Pendragon looked up from his paperwork to see Vivienne standing timidly in the door way. Although she had addressed him, she was staring at the ground, unable to met his gaze. Uther couldn't blame her. Lately whenever they were in the same company together, he found himself looking anywhere but at her. They had an unspoken agreement to ignore each other. It had been that way ever since their affair.

Neither one of them had meant for that to happen. It just had. Gorlois had been away and it had been more than a year since Ygraine's death and although Uther took pride in his little Arthur, he had been lonely, lonely for female companionship. He and Vivienne had just been having a friendly conversation and they next thing they knew they were in bed together.

“Everything is fine Gwen. You won’t need me anymore!
Gwen was happy yet unsure. Everything was different now. This would be the most life changing thing yet.
“Are you sure Gaius?”
“Positive.”
Ever since she was young, Gwen dreamed of this moment. How exiting and exhilarating it might be. But now she was married to Arthur, everything seemed to be different than if he were an ordinary status man. She wanted to tell him the big news but – She was afraid. She was afraid that he would banish her from Camelot and make her swear on her life she’d never return.
“You’re worried about Arthur.” Gaius took hold of Gwen’s soft hand and rubbed her on the shoulder.
“Gwen. I’ve known Arthur since he was born. I’m completely certain that he’ll be overwhelmed with joy. You and I both know he is really a soft–heart on the inside!
“Thank you Gaius.” Gwen smiled and hugged the physician without hesitation. But she still worried about her husband’s reaction.

Okey!Now what are your thoughts? Are you satisfied with Alex playing Mordred? Oh I am!:D So much, I loved Asa, but this one will be more.. Mordred I think:D

But what does it mean for the rest of characters? Well, because of Mordred's possible age in season 5 there should be big time jump! Because we last saw Mordred in 2x11 then we had 1 year jump to season 3 and then another 1 year jump for season 4, so, it should be 2-3 years why we last saw him right? And he was still a kid! So does it mean longer time jump this time?

Thank you for reading!
And I am sorry if someone had already uploaded something about this new fact:)

Firstly Hi!
I already know that you guys are all AMAZING people, purely because you are Merlin fans! So i know that when i ask you too read this, you will.
Its not Merlin related- you just need to know if you don't already, and if you do? SPREAD THE WORD.

Basically there is this man (if you can call him that) who has, for YEARS, been abducting children- killing their families and turning them into soldiers.He has forced young girls to become sex slaves. He has abducted an estimated 20,000 children , in a resistance group he formed named Lord's Resistance Army (LRA).

His name? Joesph Kony.

As part of the initiation, these children are often required to kill their own parents, so they'll have no homes to return to!Once kidnapped, children are used as pack mules, carrying LRA supplies until they are too weak to walk, at which time they're killed or simply left to die. Kidnapped boys also serve as targets and decoys, sent to the front lines -- unarmed -- whenever the Ugandan Army engages the LRA.

“Watch it you are Guinn’s long lost sister not one of mine.” Morgana said her magic made me recite my story.
“My mum left me as a baby and I grew up on my own looking after myself then I heard I had a half-sister and came to see her to start a new life if she will accept me.” I ended
“good but less like you’ve said it a million times more believable again, Terra.” Before she finished I knew that it would happen again, I bent over backwards out of pain I knew better than to scream. I just continued to recite it.
“it’s time go.” Growled morgana.
I walked out the door and I saw a rabbit in the corner of my eye so I picked out my handmade spear and through it at the rabbit it was a perfect hit and I grabbed it and slung it over my shoulder for later I set out until I reached the horse I had kept and rode it into Camelot. Once I was close I could hear voices the knights one of them shouted then Arthur went down I watched as the majestic creature got ready to strike I automatically grabbed my sword and placed myself protectively in front of Arthur. The creature seemed not to care and went to strike me down but I blocked Arthur was...

"Merlin" is back on Syfy tonight (Jan. 6th) with a whole new season. Fans were shocked to see Uther's (Anthony Head) death in the trailer, along with a much darker tone. Zap2it got to chat with stars Colin Morgan who plays Merlin and Katie McGrath who plays his archenemy Morgana about what's coming up for fans of the show.

Morgan said, "The 4th season definitely ups the game a lot, even in terms of how it looks ... it gets a little bit darker each year. This is the darkest it's become." The show has had dark episodes before, but they've always been balanced out with silly ones to break the tension. That's not really happening this year. The show has grown up, just like the characters.

Morgan explained, "There's no, what I'd describe as funny episodes. There's definitely some stuff that's presented in a funny way, but there's actually quite a darkness to them. Particularly one episode where Merlin's almost turned into a really bad assassin. He's captured by Morgana and he's got a snake in his brain, which is controlling his thoughts. It's making him want to kill the King. It's quite a dark thing. It's done very funnily, but it's really quite sinister."

Kalista hurried across the courtyard, in a blind panic. She had forgotten the Lady Morgana’s finest dress. A gorgeous midnight gown, overflowing with sequins. Kalista’s heart thudded in her chest. If she lost it, the King’s fury would know no bounds. Rushing straight into the castle, she skidded outside the old court physician’s chambers. Gaius was ancient and wise but still had a mischievous glint in his eye. Kalista rapped on the wooden door, hopping with impatience. Worry was consuming her with every passing moment. Gaius’s kind tones hadn’t reached her ears yet so she sped to the Prince’s chambers. Crashing into a suit of armor on the way there, she finally arrived at his majesty’s room. Tapping politely on the frame, Kalista heard the smooth voice call her in. As she stepped inside, there, hanging clumsily on a hook was the Lady Morgana’s dress, silent and sleek
“I thought you may have wanted this,” grinned Prince Arthur, a smile in his voice.
“Yes your Highness,” replied Kalista.

- There’s more bedroom antics involving Merlin and Arthur
- “Gaius condemned himself. There’s no more to be said!”

- “I’ve had my heart broken enough already today, I don’t want to lose another friend”
- Agravaine is caught red handed… and so is Merlin
- “I am as disappointed as you sire. Someone so close, so trusted. And it’s not merely the discovery that he was a sorcerer…”

1. Arthur tells Merlin what he really thinks of him.
2. “If I die will you call me a hero?”
3. Merlin sacrifices his safety to protect Arthur.
4. Morgana and Merlin have a conversation about loyalty.
5. “We have a traitor in our midst.”
6. Arthur is very confused when his manservant is actually competent for once!
7. “Two heads are better than one!”, “Yes, but not one when of them is yours.”
8. Gwen (and her heaving bosom) sees Arthur in a compromising situation while Merlin hides behind a curtain.
9. Morgana is terrified of a vision she has – her doom has come right to her door.
10. “He’s seriously boring; I’ve never met anyone so dull!”


A mysterious illness draws Merlin to a distant village as the magical drama continues. But it soon becomes clear that there is more at stake than just his well-being as something sinister turns the air sour.

Far from home and with no one to trust, Merlin becomes embroiled in a deadly game of cat and mouse. No longer sure who is the hunter and who is the hunted, can the young warlock survive long enough to uncover the truth?

You will remember Samhain from Merlin's The Darkest Hour, when the veil to the spirit world was torn. It was my birthday yesterday 31 October (no comments please lol) also known as Halloween, but also known by the old religions as Samhain.

Samhain

Samhain pronounced 'sow'inn') is a very important date in the Pagan calendar for it marks the Feast of the Dead. Many Pagans also celebrate it as the old Celtic New Year (although some mark this at Imbolc). It is also celebrated by non-Pagans who call this festival Halloween.

Samhain has been celebrated in Britain for centuries and has its origin in Pagan Celtic traditions. It was the time of year when the veils between this world and the Otherworld were believed to be at their thinnest: when the spirits of the dead could most readily mingle with the living once again. Later, when the festival was adopted by Christians, they celebrated it as All Hallows' Eve, followed by All Saints Day, though it still retained elements of remembering and honouring the dead.

First of all:



The title. His fathers son. well chosen. It gave you a wrong impression.
Arthur’s definitely not. We all know. But he gets mislead by uncle
creep (my hate for him grows more and more) and I feard Arthur would
become untrue to himself, temporarily at least. I couldn’t beiieve at
first that he really has done it. It was so unlike him. To kill a man
like this and for this reason.



But he found himself again right in time. And made the right decision.
He acted like I expected it of the great King that he will be.



It was an amazing episode all over!



It was more serious like I hoped this season to be. Nevertheless the
humour was not to be missed and it had the usual Arthur/merlin friendly
banter what was gladly not like the childish scene in the last episode.
The show has grown up. Like that. liked the whole flow and atmosphere.

Hey guys! this is my first article

I saw Merlin on Saturday night,I thought it was amazing but very moving the thing that got me was that Lancelot said that he has no more feelings for Gwen but on The darkest hour p1 when Gwen walked over to him he acted surprised to see her and when she asked him to look after Arthur Lancelot looked a bit upset for what she said.

Another thing is that I think that Gwen said too much when speaking to Arthur about Lancelot keeping his word and Arthur look very surprised for the face impression Do you think she said too much?


Finely the love triangle I carnet wait for it to come on but when Lancelot comes back i am keep wondering if the gate keeper says that he is useless or just a evil Lancelot...If you know were I am coming from?..Lets hope so lol

anyway I need some help because im keep thinking that Arthur and Gwen do make a lovely couple but she is in more danger with Morgana because as she is in love with the prince she is more closer to the throne too stop Morgana but i think it is good how Gwen is making it hard for Morgana to reach her goal so it might take longer.and the love for...
