I wanted to submit my thing 

Right so I saw the other post like an hour ago where Zed-Sama was talking about how much Merlin meant to them and everything, and the note that said y’all would like to hear from other followers, so I am here! 

I was coerced into watching Merlin by my already best friend, Maldoraan, on one of her monthly (or semi-monthly) lists where she sends me a whack-ton of shows I need to fangirl with her on, and I attempt to watch all of them, and usually fail. ANYWAY, Merlin was on one of those lists, circa…season 4? or so. I stalled on watching it until I actually saw it on TV one afternoon and got through half an episode before I fled back to my computer and found all of the episodes. I marathoned 4 seasons in a week. 

That aside, Merlin has been one of the best shows, and I severely regret not getting into it sooner, especially since I came in with just enough time to cry over season 5 and have my christmas ruined by such glorious people.

Watching merlin brought me in circles with my best friend’s friend Merlinsprat/babyintrenchcoat, and now we all sit and cry about it together and it’s great horrible. The relationships between the characters are so dynamic, and everything about the show was more authentic feeling than any other Aurthurian re-telling I’d watched before. To me, there won’t ever be another cast that represents these characters. It doesn’t matter how well the show fit the legend, it matters how well the actors made their retelling of it come alive. 

Because of this show, I’ve not only grown closer with my best friend and met other friends, I was turned on to a wonderful fandom and actors/actresses that I will continue to follow in their works, because they’re amazing at what they do. 

Merlin was the reason I became active on Tumblr and have stuck around, and this blog (as well as many others) is/are the reason I love this fandom. You all do so much for us, and it’s wonderful! Thank you!

Just a note to say I’m grateful for this blog! 

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

Not that there isn’t enough Colin Morgan appreciation already, but with his EDIT: outstanding win for Best Male Actor at the NTAs, his overall performance in “Merlin” and his new role on the upcoming BBC show “Quirke” we have even more reasons to celebrate what he’s achieved. The thing is, Adelaide and I have both tried to write letters to Colin to express what he means to us and appreciate his talent, but it’s always so difficult to find words. I have a feeling this isn’t an uncommon thing to happen when people try to write to him, or any celebrity. So we had the idea of making a big collection of letters from all of you saying what he means to you and times when he has made you smile. I feel that one big collection of them from lots of people will much easily convey how much he means to us all. So basically, write a letter to Colin (or a piece of fanart or a scan of something handwritten to him) and email it to us at colinmproject@hotmail.com and we will collate them into a lovely book for him and send it off. We will reply to you letting you know that we have got it and put it in! Make sure you have your message in before {March the 1st, 2013} so you don’t miss out. Thanks for reading this! Reblogging would be swell so that we can get the message out. Sasha &amp; Adelaide xxx

Help with the Eoin Macken Birthday Project! 

Hi! I was wondering if you could help us promote the Eoin Macken Birthday Project. Eoin’s birthday was February 21st, but we’re keeping the project open until the 29th, in case anyone wants to participate!

All the donations go towards the Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust, which is one of the leading brain tumour charities in the UK. It’s dedicated to raising awareness and support those affected by the disease - aswell as fund research to possible cures.
The charity shares its research findings in global medical journals, so everyone has a chance to benefit. If you donate, you’re helping other people around the world.

Eoin was personally affected by brain tumours and upon hearing that we had raised £1000 for his birthday, was very grateful for everyone’s involvement.

So far, we have raised £1185, but it would be wonderful if many more people donated - a £1 or £100 - everything and anything is of great great great value.
Anyone around the world can donate.

Here’s the project page on tumblr: http://eoinmackenbirthdayproject2012.tumblr.com/

And the donation page: http://www.justgiving.com/Eoin-Macken-Birthday-Project

Thank you!
