borealgrove: (Just Hold Me)
I did end up finishing my Merlin rewatch this afternoon, and the ending was nearly as devastating to watch as the first time I watched it the whole way through. I made myself a cocoon out of my bathrobe and sat in front of the TV to cry intermittently for a good hour while my partner gently poked fun at me about it (though it should be noted that by the end of Diamond of the Day pt.2 he was fully engaged in the plot and said that was such a good series, why didn't they ever continue it?). Ah, BBC Merlin. You were and continue to be a good egg.

I'll put a few remarks under a cut, just in case.

Read on if you don't mind spoilers... )

This last bit doesn't even need to be under a cut, because it's not a spoiler of any kind :

- Merlin's entire life revolves around Arthur, no joke, actual fact, I literally don't know how else to put this lol

Anyway. FEELS.

After going through that emotional upheaval, I sat down and got some actual writing done--1K in total so far together, a larger chunk going towards FS because I'd like to get that next chapter out of the way first. But I completed a scene for my ACBB fic and I am very pleased with it. I am so excited to keep writing this thing--it'll be a little gem of a thing if I pull it off! Though I have to say, I'm not sure if the story as a whole will end up being long enough to submit to ACBB once complete. Oh well! It'll be however long it needs to be to make sense, and that's all I can do about that.

BACK TO WORK, self. BACK TO WORK.
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... )
