borealgrove: (Saga'll touch ur)
Look, BBC Merlin is, above all, a love story and there isn't one but rather two whole love triangles in it. And The Sword in the Stone parts 1 and 2 give you both.

- Gwen x Arthur x Merlin
- Gwen x Arthur x Lancelot

Oh, you slash shippers! Always seeing things that aren't there!

But the second part of this episode arc both reminds you that there is, in fact, a love triangle forming between Arthur, Merlin, and Gwen, and also reinforces the idea that, in the end, Merlin and Arthur are the "true" pairing. How? Mirrors!

Spoilers and meta-ing ahead... )

borealgrove: (Saga'll touch ur)


It's always inevitable, that when I decide to take a gander at Saga's twitter, I have a little fit. First of all, I hadn't seen the new look or the new album art yet, and so... that was a shock. A delectable one. I am loving where they are taking their visuals--the casual/little-makeup direction they were headed in towards the end of their PSC contract was really sad. I love that, now they're starting to get the funds to be able to afford elaborate costumes again, they're going in that direction. ♥

You know, I never did post about MEMENTO, and what was on the cover of my regular version: Saga and his blood-red lips, pressed up against the side of Shou's leg. Yep. A truly excellent surprise. And what's more, the songs are solid. This is some good shit, my friends. A9 are overall a pretty experimental band, even if they lean more towards being alternative, so I never know quite what to expect, but both MEMENTO and ibara were heavy and addicting and I feel sorry for any poor sap that only got the limited edish and missed out on ibara. I still have no idea who was the main composer for either, but I've got a new Cure magazine on the way with an interview about the new album, so I intend to read and find out dhfbaskj

Now, on to the twitter madness.



Shou forgot his glasses (presumably at Tower Records in Ikebukuro), and Saga, of course, picked them up, put them on, and took a picture of himself being 300% done.

(...okay, so he said ドヤ顔 which is supposed to be sort of a self-satisfied look, but he just looks super done to me rofl)



Great, cool, yes! Another shot of the new look! Cool beans! Nice header Saga!



...what.

Did he just? Did Shou? Just? Crop out everyone? But him and Saga? Did literally everyone else do a nice crop of the band as a whole? And Shou was just like? NAH, JUST ME AND SAGA IS GOOD?


I know you have both CLEARLY stated that IDEAL is a collaboration between the two of you but

oh my god?

Can you please stop with this capital-C Content? My happiness levels are climbing to unrealistic heights.


no don't stop
