This was me last night.
Hello, Merlin fans!
To celebrate 5 magical years of Merlin I am organising a Merlin Rewatch starting from Saturday, 21st of Septemeber (tomorrow). Basically, what I am planning to do, is every Saturday at around 6/7pm BST we watch one Merlin episode (I’ll make a post every week with the times/downloads/links of the episode so you’re all prepared). We’ll be watching all the way from the beginning (1.01, The Dragon’s Call) right to where it ends (5.13, Diamond of The Day II), that’s 65 episodes! This means that this rewatch will be running for 65 weeks, but that’s 65 weeks filled with Merlin. The reason I want to do this rewatch is I think it’d be really nice to see our dashboards filled with Merlin again. I’m encouraging all sorts of things for this project, and I’m talking liveblogging when we watch an episode, gifsets, you name it!
If you want more details contact me via my askbox.
The Dragon’s Call details will be posted shortly.
I have been waiting for this. I’m so totally in.
The party don’t start till I walk in - fandom style
um I think we are forgetting the best one:
walk up in the club like what up im worshipped by a million teenaged girls with blogs
Sorry, party is over.
this is the post amazing thing i have seen on my dash today
The ending of Merlin destroyed me more than the death of my own dad. I don’t know else to say it and I know that makes me sound like a psycho drama queen but it’s been six months and I’m still hollow inside. I feel like I’ve been ripped open and nothing can fill that aching void that Merlin has left behind that hurts so much it makes me want to die.
For me it wasn’t MORE than the death of my own dad, but it is feeling similar: I have dreams that it’s still on air, I wake up feeling like this person said: empty and hollow.
I think Colin Morgan’s portrayal of Merlin forces the viewer to feel all of Merlin’s feelings instead of watching him feel them himself. Because of that, it resonates on a very primal level with the humanity in us all. The death of Merlin’s most important person in his life makes us all feel the deaths of the most important things in our lives; for me and the writer of this confession, it is our dads deaths. For this reason, anyone with any emotional investment in this show will never be able to think about it without remembering those feelings of loss and hurt. This is why we will never get over the ending of Merlin.
There’s something wrong with me. It’s been almost seven months and I’m still mourning over this stupid show!
|Interviewer:||is that how you pick up girls?|
|Bradley:||I actually pick up girls with various displays of origami.|
|Interviewer:||You do not.|
|Bradley:||Yes, I do. It's quite a famous tactic here in England. The better you are at origami, the more women you attract.|
|Interviewer:||And you're sure it's not because they recognise you from the show?|
|Colin:||Well, generally they're too distracted by the origami.|
|Bradley:||Yes. My house is origami. I've got a car that I drove here today that is made from origami.|
|Interviewer:||It must be very environmentally friendly.|
|Bradley:||Yeah, big time.|
|Interviewer:||Alright, Colin, coming back to Merlin - do you believe in magic?|
|Colin:||After watching Bradley drive around in his origami car, I believe in everything.|
|Interviewer:||Okay. Do you own anything origami?|
|Colin:||No, I'm an origami wannabe. I've actually started up a support group because some people have a deficiency in their systems where they can't actually fold things. I'm a part of that group, and it seems to affect people from Northern Ireland. Anyone prone to paper cuts shouldn't even enter the origami game. It's a rough industry and certainly if you don't have thick skin, you're going to lose.|
|Interview:||Let us guess, we're your first interview of the day, aren't we?|
|Interviewer:||And this is how you like to start your day?|
|Bradley:||...I usually start my day with origami.|
