Merlin (Arthur is gorgeous apparently)

I am kind of loving every single gratuitous Arthur is topless, Merlin's in his room scene in almost every episode.

And now we get a bath scene? It's like all my Christmases have come at once.

Merlin's quizzical little face! EEEEE!

Arthur protecting Merlin, n'awww. Because he's 'his' and he has his absolute trust, hah.

Merlin knows where to strike Arthur --- his vanity. I enjoy this. Now we need a sweaty workout scene.

... was that a single tear rolling down Merlin's cheek?

Someone needs to tell Merlin you can't base a solid relationship on wanting to look after someone.

YAY, GWEN. I have been missing her lately, and missing her interaction with Merlin this entire series.

Moths, Merlin, really?

*DIES FOREVER* OMG. OMG. OMG. Arthur just looks and keeps going. But then he has to ask. And then he mocks. ♥ ♥ ♥ (He wouldn't care, Merlin! He might even like it! There are probably going to be nine billion more Merlin crossdressing fics up by next week.)

... dude, you walked into Morgana's room, rambled about moths, took it, got mocked a little --- that's actually really easy.

This is predictable, but it does make me live in hope for Merlin & Zombies.

Don't worry, Merlin, she's clearly not dead. She's breathing!

Okay, now she's dead.

Oh, man. This scene. This scene. Arthur clearly loves Merlin. However you want to interpret it is fine, but look at his grin. Look!

I read a story once where Arthur and Merlin were reincarnated as brothers and I spent the entire time thinking 'if I were going to write this story it would be very different.' Because, apart from the story mentioning they were brothers every couple of paragraphs (mostly for the thrill of the taboo, these were brotherlovers), they were far less brotherly than in the actual show. If you're wondering why, given what I've said I don't do in the past I a) read a Merlin fic, b) read an incest fic; the answer would be c) I was bored and curious as to how the author would handle it.

And next week: they need to stop with the enchanting Pendragons to fall in lust. We've had it too many times. (Okay, I know, I know, it's a common theme in all the Arthurian legends.)

Was that fic by derryere? Because I read hers as she's a fantastic writer, and I simply couldn't resist, even though I also promised myself to never go there.

I died of awwwwwww during that h/c scene. I loved Merlin's little smile when he realised that he is wubbed, too, and that Arthur will look after him.

The moths part was great because of the WE WOULD RUN AROUND NAKED comment. I laughed out loud at the absurdity. Kudos to Colin's comedic talent.

Yes, this episode was full of Arthur loving Merlin. I kind of miss episodes where Merlin loves Arthur, to be honest. In the first series we had more scenes of devotion, I thought.

The moths part was fabulous, I agree. This was an episode I enjoyed so much I'd be happy to rewatch it soon.

Was that fic by derryere?

It may have been? I recall it was popular? I didn't bookmark it. The writing in the fic was good, I liked the tone and atmosphere, but I kind of thought --- so? To me, there was nothing gained from them 'being brothers', apart from that taboo aspect. And that kind of wasn't enough considering the interesting aspects of the conceit. This is me failing at fandom again, since I often feel this way about fics other fans go crazy for. And since I'm not really in Merlin fandom, or read Merlin fic, I also don't have the context to read it within.

I loved the Merlin/Arthur scenes in this episode. And Merlin. Poor Merlin.

That scene. Brilliant.

She completely was breathing, and then I thought 'shit, he's set fire to her, well she's not breathing now' and then I started worrying about how the crew made sure they didn't set fire to the wood and wondering if they had divers under the boat. Sometimes I despair of my brain... but in a good way.

And that grin was great. That line from the preview though "My job is to woo." Oh good grief (and here we go again)!

Our minds work so similarly.

I actually loved the way Arthur said that, but, I am getting sick of these enchanted Pendragon episodes. (Unless they do one where Arthur falls in lust with the first person he sees and the first person he sees is Merlin, then I will be RIGHT ON BOARD.)
