Series finale on what for me is Christmas Day...

This started out as some capslocking and ended with some less capslocked commentary.



SO IN LOVE. SO IN LOVE.

TEARS, TEARS. ALL THE AWARDS FOR COLIN.

ARTHUR IS A TOOL, BUT I DO LOVE HIM. AND THANK YOU, THANK YOU FOR GIVING US THIS.

IT'S SO GREAT HAVING A GWEN WITH AGENCY AND PERSONALITY AGAIN.

SQUEAK, SQUEAK, EEEE, OH MY GOSH, OH, OH MY HEART, OOOOOOHHHHH.

AT THIS POINT, IT'S KIND OF A DISSERVICE THEY DON'T KISS. I MEAN, SERIOUSLY. SERIOUSLY.

OKAY, SO, THIS SPRAWLING IS ABSOLUTELY SHAMELESS.

JUST. HOLD. ME.

Arthur at this point is like "I'm trying to fucking die, what is with the weird shouting? Jesus fuck, Merlin, give it a bloody rest."

Poor Bradley, having to be a ragdoll.

Oh. I thought they might do this. Give me hope and then CRUELLY TEAR IT AWAY. I'm inclined to disregard the Dragon. I guess --- I guess I got all of this first. <33333

Colin's crying really is amazing. It makes me cry too. I think I'd be crying anyway. Ow, my heart.

My heart is actually breaking right now. Fucking breaking.

Modern-day hahahahahahhahahaha. Only made better with a shot of Arthur, tbh.

There's been a metric fuck tonne wrong with this show, and this series in particular, but this episode was an example of when it gets things (mostly) right. (I am still of the opinion that they've changed so much of the legend why not just have Arthur live?) And since Merlin/Arthur's one of my OTPs (of which I have exactly three across my many fandoms), I loved it for all of the Merlin/Arthuriness, I really fucking did.

THIS. ALL OF THIS.

I basically did exactly the same thing in my journal as soon as the ep ended. ;lskdfsal;dk SO MUCH LOVE. But omg, Arthur. I don't know how I didn't see that coming, given that I know how it ends in many of the old tales. I guess I just didn't expect a family show to go there with him. But! It worked. And omg, the love. sldkf; them.

Also, I lol'd at Percival and the ropes. THAT'S WHY HE DOESN'T WEAR SLEEVES. It was golden. Though, Gwaine, straight after that. D:

ANYWAY. This. All of this.

Percival and Gwaine was also heartbreaking. Tom was excellent in that scene, I thought.

I've been a bit heartbroken all day.

:(

Agreed. With all of this. Word for word. *hugs*

MY HEART, SKY. At first it was happy, and now it is sad. And I just keep getting teary thinking about how close they were. Just. Oh, OH, boys. They were so in love. (At this point, I find it really difficult not to think it was a romantic love as well as platonic. They were *this far* from kissing all way through the episode.)

I just saw it and I am still teary. I kinda smiled at the "just hold me" thinking of all the shippers out there.

Now down the line they just need to do a one-off when Arthur comes back.

Really. I mean it.

I was actually crying ugly tears at about half the episode, haha. When I love a ship enough to OTP it, I'm pretty far gone.

AND YES. I kept thinking we'd see him, right at the end.

Oh thank you. I just finished watching and came right here, and of course you'd been watching with the same eyes I did. Jesus. Just hold me. Jesus.

Arthur: I've never said this to you before...

Me: I LOVE YOUUUUU!!

Arthur: ...thank you.

And I think the end broke me a little, because the amount of times I've been around Glastonbury and seen guys that look exactly like that and clearly think they're Merlin - and just maybe...ah, what the hell, I'm feeling whimsical, what of it?

Happy Christmas, Loz ♥

Yes to all of those. I hope you've had a good time this holiday season too!
