gifs by who_love.


+ BEST. BEGINNING. EVER. ALL ACTION-Y AND MERLIN AND ARTHUR ON A SORT OF QUEST-Y THINGAMY AGAIN AND MY MY, WHAT WERE THEY DOING ALL ALONE IN THE WOODS IN THE FIRST PLACE? ANOTHER PICNIC INTERRUPTED? THEY'RE SO UNLUCKY ON THE ROMANCE FRONT LATELY.

I THINK I READ A FIC LIKE THIS ONCE.

+ "WHY IS IT YOU NEVER TRUST ME, MERLIN?" YES, I WONDER WHY. :D :D :D


... WHY DOES IT LOOK LIKE MERLIN'S ON HIS KNEES? WHAT HAVE THEY BEEN DOING?




+ YES, ARTHUR. TAKE MERLIN'S HAND AND ~RUN TOGETHER~



+ NO MERLIN DON'T GO PAST THE CREEPY LOOKING STATUES THAT REMIND ME OF LORD OF THE RINGS. GOLLUM WILL GET YOU!



+ OHNOES! ARTHUR'S BEEN HIT BY AN ARROW IN THE BACK! ... AND SOMEHOW MERLIN MANAGES TO DRAG HIM INTO A HIDING PLACE WITHOUT BEING SEEN BY THE BANDITS THAT ARE, WELL. ONLY SOME METERS AWAY FROM THEM. WHUT.



AW, LOOK. THEY'RE CUDDLING!


+ AW, MERLIN TAKING CARE OF ARTHUR AND BEING ALL WORRIED AND AND AND AND AW. /hearts in eyes



+ !!! OASLJFL;ALJFDLKFJALFJDLKFJALFJDLJFDL

"DOLLOP HEAD." THIS PROVES IT. IT'S A NICKNAME OF LOVE. AND AND "I NEED YOU TO RECOVER" AND TRYING TO HEAL HIM WITH MAGIC TWICE!!! AND "LISTEN TO ME, CLOTPOLE. I DON'T CARE IF YOU DIE, THERE ARE PLENTY OF OTHER PRINCES. YOU'RE NOT THE ONLY POMPOUS, SUPERCILIOUS, CONDESCENDING, ROYAL ... IMBECILE I COULD WORK FOR - THE WORLD IS FULL OF THEM. BUT I'M GOING TO GIVE YOU ONE MORE CHANCE" AND THE FOND LOOK ON HIS FACE WHEN HE INSULTS ARTHUR OASLJFL;ALFJKDLA THE LOVE IT'S AMAZING.




AND THEN THE MAGIC DOESN'T WORK AND OALKJFL;ALKJDL HE HAS TO GO WASH ARTHUR'S BLOOD OFF HIS HANDS BECAUSE HE CAN'T BEAR TO LOOK AT IT AND THEN HE STARTS CRYING AND AND AND OH MY GOD MERLIN I LOVE YOU SO HARD RIGHT NOW.

COLIN MORGAN, ANGST MORE, MKAY.

+ CREEPY OLD DUDE IS CREEPY. MERLIN, WHY SO TRUSTING OF CREEPY OLD DUDES? HE COULD BE A PERV!

+ THE CRYSTAL CAVE, AW YEAH! \o/



+ i am so fucking impressed with colin morgan, okay. because that scene in the crystal cave? oasljfdl;alkjfdlsjflsdjfl so fucking amazing, i don't even. just. i love how he obviously senses that it's magic, that it's not quite right, and he's so uneasy, and just aoasljfldsjfls he doesn't want to see but he can't not, and then he's all angstface and trembling and afraid and oasljfdls MERLIN. /cuddles him

and i have such a hate/love relationship with the crystals, okay, so not even kidding. i love the crystals as a plot point, because they're absolutely awesomesauce, but jesus fucking christ on a goddamn cracker I HATE THEM SO HARD AND THEY PISS ME OFF SO FUCKING MUCH because they're pretty much the cause of everything - merlin sees the future he himself creates by trying to prevent it from happening, and it's just, you'd think merlin would've figured it out by now considering what happened with the dragon but no no no and just oasljfdls;alkjfdls FUCK MY LIFE.

which just goes to show how awesome this episode was, i guess, what with the conflicting emotions, but goddamn it, crystals, GO SHATTER OFF AND LEAVE MERLIN ALONE. D: D: D:

+ "YOU LOOK LIKE A STARTLED STOAT." ARTHUR! AND MERLIN BEING ALL "YEAH? WELL, AT LEAST I DON'T LOOK LIKE A BONE-IDLE ... TOAD" AND OASLJFLDJLAJL BOYS! :D :D :D (ALSO, STOATS ARE ADORABLE, THEREFORE ARTHUR MUST THINK MERLIN IS ADORABLE. :D)



AAAAAND THEN MERLIN SAYS THAT MAYBE SOMEDAY ARTHUR WILL MAGICALLY TRANSFORM INTO A HANDSOME PRINCE, LOLOL. (BEEN THINKING MUCH ABOUT ARTHUR BEING HANDSOME, HAVE YOU, MERLIN? :D)



AND AND AND OASLJFLD OH MY GOD THE WHOLE SCENE AFTER THAT WITH MERLIN BEING ALL OKAY LET'S GO AND ARTHUR BEING ALL LOLS DID YOU FORGET I GIVE THE ORDERS HERE AND MERLIN GOES ALL OH OKAY BUT LET'S JUST GO I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR THIS RIDICULOUSNESS AND ARTHUR'S ALL WAIT WHUT AND AND AND BOYS! BRADLEYFACES! :D

+ "MERLIN, DID SOMETHING HAPPEN THAT YOU'RE NOT TELLING ME ABOUT?" OASLJLFD;ALKJFDL THIS COULD TOTES BE ARTHUR SUSPECTING MERLIN OF MAGIC THINGAMIES! BUT WE ALL KNOW IT'S NOT, BECAUSE ACCORDING TO THE WRITERS, ARTHUR'S AN OBLIVIOUS DUNCE, SO, YOU KNOW.



+ "I'M MISSING YOUR USUAL PRATTLE" AND OASLJFLD;ALKFJDLJKDLDFA AGAIN AGAIN AGAIN ARTHUR KNOWS SOMETHING'S WRONG WITH MERLIN AND TRIES TO CHEER HIM UP AND TRIES TO MAKE MERLIN TALK ABOUT WHATEVER'S BOTHERING HIM (SORT OF) AND JUST OASLJFL;ALFKJLD SO OTP-ISH! :D :D :D

+ "SOME CREDIT MUST GO TO MY SERVANT, MERLIN." OASLKJFLD FUCKING FINALLY! ALTHOUGH OBVS IT'S A MOMENT WHEN MERLIN REALLY COULDN'T CARE LESS, DAMN IT. BUT GWEN LOOKS HAPPY ENOUGH FOR HIM, GOING ALL OH YAY MERLIN AND HEE, THEY HAVEN'T TOTALLY FORGOTTEN THE AMAZING DUO THAT IS MERLIN AND GWEN! :D



+ OH MY GOD MERLIN YOU SODDING IDIOT. ARTHUR'S JUST BOUGHT A DAGGER THAT'S SO FAR FROM THE ONE YOU SAW IN THE VISION AND YOU GO AND TALK ABOUT JEWELLERY AND PRETTY THINGS AND YOU DON'T EVEN THINK THAT ARTHUR MIGHT, YOU KNOW, TAKE THAT ADVICE AND GO BUY THE PRETTY DAGGER FROM YOUR VISION? NO, BECAUSE YOU'RE AN IDIOT.



PHALLIC SYMBOLS OF ... PHALLICNESS.


HEADDESK TIEMS. SERIOUSLY.

+ HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA THE LOOK ON MERLIN'S FACE WHEN GAIUS GOES ALL SO LOL YOU'RE GONNA ENJOY THE FEAST EVEN THOUGH IT'S FOR MORGANA YOUR EBILZ NEMESIS AND JUST, HE LOOKS ALL FUCK YOU GAIUS WAY TO RUIN MY MOOD. :D :D :D AAAAAAAAND THEN MORGANA GETS THE PRETTY KNIFE AND MERLIN'S ALL OHNOES!



+ LOL THEY HAVE TO WATCH MORGANA NIGHT AND DAY? OBVS THEY'RE THE WRITERS OF STALKING 101. :D :D

+ MORGANA AND GWEN LOOK LIKE FRIENDS AGAIN WHAT THE FUCK. BUT JUST. WHAT. WHAT. I MEAN, WHAT. I CERTAINLY DON'T MIND, BUT I GUESS I'D JUST LIKE TO KNOW IF MORGANA GAVE GWEN THAT PRESENT BECAUSE GWEN'S ONE OF HER DEAREST FRIENDS AND SHE WANTED TO MAKE HER HAPPY, OR IF SHE JUST WANTED TO DISTRACT GWEN FROM MORGAUSE'S PRESENT. MMMMMORE OF THESE TWO!



+ ... AND THEN MERLIN ACCIDENTALLY MAKES MORGANA FALL DOWN THE STAIRS. WHUT.

WHICH BRINGS US MORE SADFACE MERLIN BECAUSE AW, HE KNOWS SHE'S EVIL BUT HE DOESN'T WANT HER DEAD, BECAUSE HE STILL CARES ABOUT HER AND ARTHUR AND GWEN AND EVERYONE DOES, TOO. D: D: AND AW, GAIUS HUGGING MERLIN OSALJFLD;ALKJFDL SO CUTE!

+ awwww the scenes after that are really nice, though. like, it's obvious everyone's grieving and everyone's worried and it's so much worse for merlin, because he did this, and he's the reason everyone's so sad and just oasljfl,aljfdlskjfdsljfdslfsl MERLIN WHY DO YOU ALWAYS INSIST ON BREAKING MY HEART. D: D: D: D:

+ "I'VE GROWN UP WITH HER - SHE'S LIKE A SISTER TO ME." AW AW AW ARTHUR. D: D: D: D: D: IF ONLY MORGANA COULD ACTUALLY HEAR EVERYONE GRIEVE FOR HER - I THINK THAT'D GO A LONG WAY FOR HER TO SEE THAT NOT EVERYONE IN CAMELOT NEEDS TO DIE. I'D JUST, OASLJFDL. DOES SHE STILL CARE ABOUT ARTHUR? I SO WANT HER TO, OKAY. JUST. CHRIST. D: D: D: D:

+ LE GASP! UTHER IS WILLING TO USE SAUCERY TO CURE MORGANA! GAIUS IS SHOCKED! ... LOLOLOL THERE'S JUST SOMETHING ABOUT THE WAY ANTHONY HEAD SAYS "SORCERY" THAT JUST ALWAYS CRACKS ME UP. :D :D :D

+ ANOTHER LE GASP! A REVELATION! MORGANA IS UTHER'S DAUGHTER! AND OF COURSE MORGANA MANAGES TO WAKE UP A BIT TO HEAR JUST THAT OH GOD THIS SHOW. LIKE SHE'D REMEMBER THAT, IN THE FIRST PLACE. BUT OBVS SHE DOES, BECAUSE THE SHOW IS JUST OSALJFL;ALKFJDKLFJLDJFDL. I MEAN. YOU KNOW. IT'S GOOD PLOT, I KNOW IT IS, BUT LIKE THE CRYSTALS, IT JUST PISSES ME THE FUCK OFF BECAUSE OALSKJLFD;ALKJFDL EVERYTHING'S PRETTY MUCH GOING TO SHIT RIGHT NOW. POOR BBS. D: D: D:

+ MERLIN TRYING TO COMFORT UTHER! WHICH SOUNDS SURPRISINGLY DIRTY! BUT AW! AND THIS TIME UTHER MANAGES TO BREAK MY HEART. D: D: D:

... AND SO DOES ARTHUR OH MY GOD THAT SCENE IN THE RAIN I JUST. I DON'T EVEN. D: D: D: D: D: CHRIST, WHY IS THIS EPISODE SO SAD, JUST. OH MY GOD. AND THEN MERLIN ALONE IN HIS ROOM ALL ANGSTFACING AND AND AND. D: D: D: WAY TO BREAK MY HEART TEN TIMES OVER IN ONE EPISODE, SHOW. D:


OW, MY HEART. D:


+ ... AND LOL OF COURSE NO ONE SEES THE DRAGON FLYING OVER CAMELOT, THE BLIND IDIOTS.

+ SLASH DRAGON! \o/ ALSO MERLIN WHEN WILL YOU LEARN TO LISTEN TO THE SLASH DRAGON, OKAY. HE KNOWS WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT WHEN IT COMES TO EVIL SAUCERY. (MORDRED, ANYONE?) OH, THIS WILL ALL END IN TEARS, I JUST KNOW IT.

+ AW, POOR MERLIN. HE'S SO TORN BETWEEN WANTING TO SAVE MORGANA, AND WANTING TO SAVE EVERYONE ELSE SHE MIGHT SOMEDAY KILL. D:

... ON THE OTHER HAND, OOH, HELLO COLIN MORGAN'S HANDS! DON'T YOU LOOK DELISHUS TONIGHT!

+ HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHA LOLING AT THE SCENE BETWEEN UTHER AND GAIUS. :D :D UTHER'S ALL "OMG THANK YOU GAIUS FOR USING SAUCERY TO CURE MORGANA" AND GAIUS IS ALL "BUT I DIDN'T DO ANYTHING AT ALL" AND THEN UTHER'S ALL "OH HO HO OF COURSE YOU DIDN'T I WON'T MENTION IT AGAIN O HO." :D :D :D :D

+ "I COULDN'T WATCH EVERYONE'S GRIEF." AW, MERLIN. YOU'RE FAR TOO KIND FOR YOUR OWN GOOD. ♥

+ WELL SHIT, NOW MORGAUSE KNOWS ABOUT UTHER BEING MORGANA'S DADDY, WHICH WILL JUST MAKE HER EVIL PLOTS EVEN MORE EVIL - MORGANA BEING QUEEN, ANYONE? I SAID IT ONCE, AND I'LL SAY IT AGAIN - THIS WILL ALL END IN TEARS. BUT YAAAAAY KISS ON THE CHEEK! I MUST ADMIT, MORGANA AND MORGAUSE ARE QUITE FABULOUS TOGETHER. :D



+ OASLJFLD;LJLFDKJLAKJFDLKJFLA;ALKFJDLKJFLAKJFDLKJDLFKJALKJFDL

OKAY THOSE LAST FOUR THREE MINUTES OR SO OH MY GOD SO FUCKING GLORIOUSLY DONE, I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO SAY. JUST. STARTING FROM THAT WHEN MERLIN SEES THE WINE DRIPPING FROM THAT DUDE'S FINGERS, JUST LIKE IN HIS VISION, AND THE SLOW-MO AND THE MUSIC AND MERLIN REALISING HE HASN'T STOPPED ANYTHING AT ALL AND TRYING TO STOP MORGANA AND MORGANA GOING ALL MAGIC EBILZ ON HIM AND MORGANA WALKING ALL SLOW-MO TOWARD UTHER'S CHAMBERS (WHICH, OH GOD, ONE OF THE BEST SCENES KATIE'S EVER DONE, NO LIE) AND DID I SAY THE MUSIC, GOD, AND MERLIN WAKING UP AND SCREAMING LIKE IN THE VISION AND BLOWING UP THE WINDOW TO STOP MORGANA AND DID I SAY THE MUSIC.

CHRIST, I NEED THE SOUNDTRACK, 'CAUSE THAT MUSIC WAS SO GOOD.

ALSO THIS IS VERY VERY BAD BECAUSE IT ALL HAPPENED EXACTLY LIKE THE VISIONS SHOWED MERLIN - UTHER EVEN WOKE UP LIKE IN THE VISIONS FUCK FUCK FUCK. D: D: D:

+ HOSHIT MORGANA DON'T YOU DARE DO ANYTHING TO ARTHUR JUST TO GET THE THRONE. D: D:

+ NEXT WEEK! LOOKS TO BE A SORT OF CRACKISODE, WHICH I THINK IS GOOD - THEY'VE QUITE LEARNED HOW TO PACE THE EPISODES NOW, BECAUSE A FUNNY-ISH EPISODE IS WHAT YOU NEED AFTER THE ANGSTFEST WE GOT THIS WEEK. :D :D
