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...

I think we can all agree that if there was a Universal Declaration of Fan Rights, the right to ship whomever and whatever we want, no matter how strange, disturbing and/or ridiculously adorable the pairing, would be at the very top of that list. Shipping, especially when in regards to non-canonical couples, often reflects what we as individuals desire in relationships, and our own subjective views of what would be cute, sexy or funny to see in a romantic pairing. However, shipping isn’t something that is simply based on our own individual views and desires alone. Fandoms are essentially interactive...

MediaBlvd> Thank you for your time, it’s great to talk to you and we’re really looking forward to series two airing on SyFy this week.

Colin> Yeah, I’ve got some friends in Boston and they were saying they were re-running the first series all day Sunday, then it’s on this week. It’s a bit crazy!


MediaBlvd> Yeah, it is. Let me start off by asking you, you’ve got the title role in the series. How big of a deal of this is it for your career, and just to be playing Merlin, such an iconic figure in the Arthurian legends.

Colin> Yeah, it’s such a good...

I have already reposted this as an answer to a question the the Arthur/Gwen Spot, but here it is again..... it sounds cheesy, but i can't be bothered rewording it.. but here it is.

Because I don’t live in Britain, I can’t really see the episodes on TV and Download them from BBC iPlayer!!! *sob*
So this is what I do – I follow these links and download them!! These files are all safe, good quality, AVI files which means you can run them on most computers, and use them to make fan videos, and, and FREE – I used them all to get my Merlin Episodes!!

One teeny problem – with ‘Hotfile’...

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...

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 was watching ‘The Adventures of Merlin’ for the first time. Arthur and Merlin were walking together down the path, when my eyes went out of focus.
I had never seen ‘The Adventures of Merlin’ before, or had seen any previews for it, but the two characters seemed, familiar as though I had seen them millions of times across the screen, in grand adventures together. I suddenly realised they were much like two people I knew very well on the screen.
Those two people were Peter and Edmund Pevensie, from ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’
They were so similar I thought they were the same actors,...

I'm submitting this in chapters. This is my dream romance of Arthur and Guinevere. Just imagine that Gwen has finally picked between Arthur and Lancelot and has chosen Lancelot. Arthur being gracious has decided to go on, but feels empty. Enter a new chapter ...

The sun was rising a glorious golden on the road to Camelot. The weather was very warm for summer, and the only noises were the wind whispering to the leaves of trees running by the way, and the rhythmic plod of two horses-and a cart running tracks through the dry path.

In the arena a group of knights were training under the guidance...

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...

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,...

Hey, whatcha looking at?!
Hey, whatcha looking at?!
1- Be BFF with Morgana and be sure that Morgana hangs out with you more
2- By doing the way above, get to the second step and make Morgana say to Morgause "Now that I got the crown, you can get your ass out of Camelot my dear sister."
3- Be very nice to Cendred and let Morgause see you&cendred together, talking laughing etc...
4- And when you are very well with Cendred, make him kick her out of his castle so that she'll be alone in every ways
5- Take the video of Morgause&Arthur talking about what Uther did to Ygraine, yet Arthur kept talking to Uther. Then make her watch this video 10...

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...

First I have to say that the Merlin fandom is the best fandom I've joined in a while. It's amazing, there's so little wank and it has some of the most creative and best fics I've seen so far!

I know some people on Fanpop don't care for fic, but there's others that do like fic, and so I've compiled a list of fic I loved very much.
I have at least 44 fics saved in my memories on LiveJournal, so this is a VERY short part of it.
I'm not quite sure of Fanpop's policy on linking fic, so the highest rating I'm linking to is R, not NC-17. The ratings are always above the fic (except for one, I can't...

Standing in a clearing with Merlin’s evil twin, Jethro, a big and scary and blue monster named Gary, and now Mordred – the dude who wanted to kill Arthur – would make anyone a little scared. But scared enough to turn and run screaming away? Not our fearless four!

Arthur turned and ran, screaming, away, but Merlin grabbed the back of his shirt. “Where do you think you’re going, mate?”
Mordred stood beside Jethro, radiating evil and cuteness. He was only a little boy, after all. He smiled at Merlin, Arthur, Donna and the Doctor. “I thought you would’ve guessed by now,” he said,...

22. Follow him around saying, "Bother, bother, bother, bother, bother," until he tells you to go away.
22. Follow him around saying, "Bother, bother, bother, bother, bother," until he tells you to go away.
1. Before he heads out to the training grounds, tell him his armour looks kind of big.

2. Then mention how it looks quite dull.

3. Ask him if he's made his daily quota for yelling at people yet.

4. After number 3, tell Arthur that he count you in his daily quota.

5. Ask him to pout for you.

6. Go up to Morgana when Arthur's within earshot and say, "Doesn't Lancelot have nice hair? He's so much cuter than Arthur!"

7. For added effect on number 6, add "Lancelot isn't a prat, either!"

8. And if you want to be REALLY mean, add "No wonder Merlin likes Lancelot better!"

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...

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...

“I find that we have a sorcerer in Camelot, Sire. My friend Aredian had been right, that magic is indeed in Camelot.” Bayard said his eyes small and depthless. This new Witch finder was better than Aredian, yet just as evil at the same time. “Go on.” Uther said, leaning forward. “I have found the sorcerer! She is indeed in this room among us.” I look at Morgana, her green eyes wide, her face pale, as she fidgets in her chair. Oh no. Bayard points a thin finger at her. “The Lady Morgana, is the Sorceress of Camelot.” Oh god, help her. Uther glares at her. “Is this true?”...
