Just thought I’d re-post it:
- Every time someone says the word “destiny,” take a drink.
- Every time Merlin cries, take a drink.
- Every time Arthur and Merlin have eyesex, take a drink.
- Every time Merlin says “I promise,” take a drink.
- Every time Uther blames a problem on magic, take a drink.
- Every time Arthur takes off his shirt, take a drink.
- Every time Arthur disobeys his father, take a drink.
- Every time Merlin goes down to see The Slash Dragon, take a drink.
- Every time Gaius raises his eyebrow, take a drink.
- Every time someone tries to kill a Pendragon, take a drink.
- Every time Merlin uses magic when he’s not supposed to, take a drink.
- Every time you see someone sneaking around the castle in a cloak at night, take a drink.
- Every time Morgana has a nightmare, take a drink.
- Every time Merlin saves Arthur’s life, take a drink.
- Every time Gwen kisses someone, take a drink.
- Every time Merlin lies to Arthur, take a drink.
I was 12 months late to the Merlin party, after which I was very careful not to get into the fandom because, right up to season 5, we were getting our free-to-air eps about 12-6 months after the UK and it was hard enough avoiding spoilers without actively hunting them out.
Now that Merlin is over and I’m free to browse the fandom as I please, I came across this blog and have spent the last 2 weeks trawling through every page and realising just how much I missed out on! In some ways I regret not riding the wave with everyone else because of the events and opportunities I missed, but I also had 5 years of wonderful bonding with my now best friend watching Merlin together through Skype because we live so far away from each other.
I would like to thankyou very much for not only the dedication to the blog, but also your respectful attitude, particularly towards the actors and their private lives. I was extremely disappointed ( but not particularly surprised ) when I found out Bradley had left twitter because of obsessive fans, but I was struck by how many of your posts actively encouraged your readers to be respectful and realistic. I find this extremely refreshing amidst so many narcissistic blogs about how close they got to x, or how y wouldn’t sign something for them even though they’d spent 1000000000 hours staking out their house or something equally extreme.
I also appreciate the variety of characters and relationships featured here, I feel like I have been able to appreciate Merlin and those involved with the show on a broader scale than I would ordinarily have sought out on my own.
So, if you have read this far along, thankyou very much for all you’ve done with this blog and keep up the good work!

I’ve decided to revisit the show again myself, and I’d love to hear other followers’ thoughts on why Merlin has been so important for them, and how the show has affected your life. I, personally, met my best friend through Merlin, and it will always hold a special place in my heart. -mod!rose
Little present i wasn’t able to give to Colin when i went to see MOJO ): , loved the play tho :)
You should consider backing this Kickstarter, created by the one and only Georgia King, who was in Merlin a few years back as Princess Elena. Bradley James tweeted his support, and can be seen singing in the trailer!
They are only 3 days from their deadline, with just over $2000 to go! Plus, I got a lovely message from Georgia once I had backed the project :P

Here is an old drawing by my father! In 1993 he had drawing the medieval castle of Pierrefonds in France. I live 10 minutes from the castle. My dream is to live in the city of Pierrefonds to watch the most beautiful view I know: this castle! it is in the Merlin series.
