Chapter 3: a sacrifice for future’s sake

Merlin returns from his work for Arthur to his chambers and finds Gaius sitting over some big, old dusty books searching for an answer for the sudden illness of King Uther.
“Have you found anything yet?” Merlin asks.
“No, not yet” Gaius says and closes the book he was reading.
“I can’t find any physical reason. It must’ve been the shock. But I really don’t know…”
Merlin recognises a change in the tone in his last sentences what makes him start thinking about something. He stares into nothing for a while.
“And what if” he starts.
“What if it’s magic? It would’ve been the first time.”
“Why do you think that?” Gaius asks in surprise.

Merlin IV Episode 6 production Script 27.04.11 18



Gwaine (Cont’d)

Personally, I like to know I’v done well. A pat on the back at least.



Arthur

Is that why you’re helping me today?



Gwaine

No. I’m helping you because we’ve got to find Merlin.



Arthur

And finding him will reward you enough?



Gwaine

Exactly.



Arthur

See, you’re not such a bad person.



{Gwaine looks pleased with himself. Then considers something:}



Gwaine

Actually, I’m a kind of hoping he’ll say “thank you”. Or something along the lines of “Gwaine, you must be the best knight alive. You trekked three miles in muddy swamps, you fought off countless mercenaries, you ride the fastest man has ever ridden and you will look good--”

-We can expect series 4 to be darker and to see the return of Excalibur.

-New series of Merlin looks great! Much darker, lots of action and a hint of the sword in the stone!.

-With Uther a broken man, Prince Arthur has the emotional dilemma of either taking charge or waiting for his father to recover.

-Uther is a brokem man this series. This leaves a power vaccum in camelot which leaves arthur with a choice .

-Knights are proper knights now, Morgana looking after an injured Morgose, The return of "old Merlin", lots of sword fights!.

-We'll see a lot more from Arthur's knights as their characters are explored.

-The creator said they have a specific mythiological end point for s5 which they have always been working toward.

The very last shot of series 4 has been filmed already (plenty of scenes to be filmed yet though.

This is some stuff I have found from what people were shown at the Comic Con. ( Lucky wotsits who got to go ) No sign of the trailer yet though I'm constantly looking I haven't slept in 24 hours.

Anyway...


San Diego Comic Con panel:

Spoilers from the panel

-Merlin has been recommissioned for series 5.
-Having two series ahead gives TPTB "creative space" to focus on the characters and "slow-burning" story arcs.
-Morgana will return, and her magic is just as strong as Merlin's.
-Merlin's story arc will see him finding his true place in the court of Camelot.
-The knights will be a strong unit in series four. Arthur and Lancelot get their swords out a lot.
-There'll be a bit of flirtation between Lancelot and Gwen.
-TPTB promise "an unexpected twist" to the Arthur / Gwen / Lancelot love triangle.
-Uther has had to up too his past actions, and the repercussions will continue in series four.

Dear BBC: It’s really great that Bradley and Katie and Colin and Tony will all be at Comic Con. BUT WHY DON’T YOU EVER LET ANGEL DO ANYTHING?

link

My response:

I do wonder at it repeatedly. I really, really, really do not want to go down the path that my brain is beginning to think about….say it ain’t so? Say it soon. Cause it strikes me that the massive success and the word of mouth and the strength of MERLIN was built on the OT4…more to the point, the more screen time, the more attention the series got all over the world. Can that be coincidence?

More people were invited to the drama with her appearance, valid presence and more power brought to the overall voice of the myth.

Do, do, make sure, the thoughts lurking in the back of my mind have no validity. Do, do, try, not to let me register the pigment of the stars chosen….I try not to think like that…but it seems…the warmer your skin tone…do I need to even finish that...

So having developed my Merlin obsession very recently, I went online to see what sorts of fan sites, etc existed around this great show and the wonderful actors who play the characters we've all grown to know, love, loathe (perhaps), and lust after. Yes, I am referring to the faithful Merlin/Arthur/Gwaine (ALL the Knights really) fans who regularly comment on the wonderful pictures put up on this site by Naima and others (Thank you!)

I found a whole bunch of kindered spirits on Fanpop who love the show - and in a non dodgy way, one almost feels like they're with a different type of family. A family who have the same interest (Hello?! Merlin fans!), write funny postings, and don't argue over who gets the last garlic bread at the dinner table :)

My friends, realising my obsession with Merlin is not of the scary nature, recently suggested that I combat the boredom/monotony of boring meetings at work, or other such events that happen in life with Merlin interjections.

holla guys !
the day has been amazing for me but this time no big spoilers :)
so i arrived on set toward 12 h but the cast werent shooting on the courtyard
it was the double of Agravaine and Gwaine who brought Gauis into the castle , he was unconscious ( or dead ? )

ive talked with some french guys that i know from the crew and they told me that ABC and the others knights were shooting a banquet and in the throne room ,
during the conversation , they implied that the banquet was related to a wedding but i couldnt tell cause they are REALLY not invested in the show HAHA ( actually it suprised me that all the extra that ive talked too doesnt even watch the show lol ! and the crew from the castle arent interested in the filming or actors ...)

i totally forgot to talk with the french extra( i really regret now O_o )

so do i , ive seen those pics of the flowers + bed in the throne room , at first i was really surprised to see those pics cause the crew didnt allow anyone to go near the throne room so

My predictions if these happened:

What if?

...Merlin revealed his magic to Arthur in season 2/3?
Arthur wouldn't know what to do, he'll be confused.

...Morgana fell for Merlin?
We would see her cry as she is confused, getting pressure from Morgause.

...Arthur didn't have mercy for the 'lady' (Morgause)?
No more storyline!

...Merlin fell for Gwen?
He'd be confused, to let her go or admit his love for her :(

...Uther was a nice king?
That isn't likely to happen, but the story would be changed dramatically!

Anything else guys?

I just want to say, this club turned into a fight club! For the sake of God, just look around and see what we have become! Arwen shippers, Mergana shippers, Uther/Morgana shippers keeps fighting and fighting! If you ship them, then you ship them, thats it. There are clubs for those couples. So why there's always a fight on HERE? Wanna fight? Go to those clubs! No one has to luv Arwen, or Armor or Mergana or other couples on the show. Why you people keep defending and fighting about the ships you luv?

People on the spot became so rude these days and I got no idea what the hell is going on but can please everybody look around and see what happened to the spot? We fight, our friendships ruin and everybody started hating each other. This club is Merlin fan club, not Arwen or Armor or etc. ! We are all here because we luv MERLIN! That's what we have in common. In a week, the spot became a place where people fight, bash each other!

I'm one of the oldest people in this club and seeing people I like changing so much upsets me. If this goes on like this, I'll just go and never look back. Eventually, I can always watch the show, I dont need a place like this where...

ok so i was looking to see if there were any new merlin season 4 spoilers but when i found some i was not sure if they were right or not.

One said that emilia fox is not returning to merlin as she said in an interview that she will be doing another tv season(probertly silent witness).
But this is not true as we have seen pictures of her filming season 4 with katie.

I also founds out that Nimueh, Morderid and alvar will be returing,along with lady vivian and Elaina.
They are also going to introduse more knights of the round table yay.

Hey Merlin fans! Here’s the interview with your April FOTM winner Melissa…

1) Congratulations! You won the Merlin April FOTM! How do you feel?
Wow, I am a little shocked by that, but so honored.:)

2) For those who don’t know you that well, can you tell us a little about yourself?
Well I just turned 17 years old. My name is Melissa. I live in Norway but I am half British. I go to school, taking general studies. I love to read, be with friends, horses, dogs, dancing and exercising, shopping etc. My favorite color is pink. I love the supernatural, so Merlin and The vampire diaries are my favorite shows.

3) We all know that you’re a Merlin fanatic, how long have you been watching it, and when did you become a fan?
I borrowed some Merlin dvd’s from a friend just before Christmas. I became a fan from the first episode. So I haven’t been a fan for that long.

4) What drew you into the show?

Merlin followed the bare feet up her ankle and up to her face. He couldn't see her face because she was standing in front of the sun.
“Who is it”? Merlin tried to cover the eyes from the sun. She began slowly walking towards him. He was struck when he finally could see her. Her hair was blowing in the small wind, it looked like bronze and gold when the sun was shining on it, her eyes was as blue as the bluest lake and her lips, he had to shuck his had to come out the of trance.
“Do you need any help”? When she spoke it sounded like small belles. He nodded with his mouth wide open, unable to speak. She sat down on her knees beside him.


“Why are you such a lazy horse Merlin”? Arthur was standing in his room when Merlin walked in with his supper.
“What”! Merlin replied.
“I have been out looking for something suspicious the whole day and you have been gathering some herbs. When I let you go out to day I think I deserve food when I come home”! He was angry.

She was staring at her window , smiling , the sun was warming up her beautiful face and making shine the diamonds on her dress. She was in peace and felt..surprinsingly satisfied. That pleasant moment didnt last long though , the knock on her door brought her back to reality. She put her hair up , straightened her crown and stayed staring at her windows
"come on in !" she exclaimed
"it seems that i ll have to take of two Pendragons soon " said the white women at the door

Ygraine recognized that voice immediatly , she turned around and rushed to hug her friend
"oh my goodness! Carmelid! i missed you so much!"
said the Queen , her face lightning up.
They hugged each other as if they were separated for many years , just seeing each other was enough for the both women to feel that happiness , that...peace.
Carmelid was younger than Ygraine but as beautiful as her despite her poor and torn clothes...comparing to the wealth and the nobility of her mistress , the servant felt often uneasy and unworthy of the love and compassion that Ygraine gave her.

Age 10 my parents’ death
The familiar corridors were silent as I walked through them. Every day I visited Arthur and most days we visited the river outside of Camelot. Arthur is the prince of Camelot. We both knew that one day these visits would stop and we would grow apart. But until then we were best friends.
When I arrived outside Arthurs chambers one of his father’s knights were leaving. Both the knight and Arthur were ... well they were worried.
“Ah Lady Morgana. We have been wondering where you are. There is some unfortunate news you need to know,” the knight said.
“Let me tell her,” Arthur cut in. He sounded more grown up than usual.
“What is it?” I questioned.
Arthur shook his head as the knight walked away. Arthur turned and walked back into his chambers. This was confusing me so I followed him. He had sat down on his bed. Not moving. He looked like a perfect statue. I went and sat opposite him.
“Morgana,” he said taking hold off my hand, “My dear Anna,” I now knew this was serious he rarely called me Anna; “I do not know how to tell you this.”

Hey I’m back and I’m so sorry for the delay!
the chaper was ready a long time ago but my computer broke down-.-
So here’s now the next and longer chapter.
Enjoy!


Chapter 2: The Fairy in the Cave


She is on her knees at the edge of a small stream staring into the slow flowing water beneath her. She takes out some herbs from under her cloak and lets them fall slowly into the water muttering some words in the language of the Old Religion. The water moves and small circles build. As the little waves vanish and the surface becomes still again, a picture appears.

The sorceress smiles. What she sees pleases her.

He’s leaving. The city is unguarded, the king is weak, a perfect target.

Her heart beats a little faster.

By the movement of her hand the picture fades and she rises.

“When you’re back you’ll get a surprise, young warlock. I’m looking forward to seeing your face more than you could ever know.

Hey guys! Here I am with the next chapter! *smile*
It's short and a bit of a filler, but I'd love you for your comments! I can't go on without sweet little commies xD

I own nothing and thanks again to my beta <3
Enjoy!

Chapter 2 - First step into the future

There is a task he has to do. It is important that he hides the sword where nobody can get it except the one for whom it was made for. So the young warlock walks through the forest searching for such a place. And then he finds it, a huge, heavy stone.



He nods and unfolds the cloth where he has Excalibur kept in. He takes it out and holds it above the stone, murmuring a magic spell. The sword glows and sparks fly around as the sharp metal blade crushes into the stone and runs through it like butter. “It is done” Merlin thinks. The sword stays in the stone now. Only the great future king will be able to pull it out.

“That’s it. The battle is over, the army of the dead is beaten, Morgause is dead and Morgana is gone. It’s over.” With this thought he makes his way back.
