Hello Anon, you made me cry at 1 am. I hope you’re happy.

The thing that breaks me is that all of the tragedy that happens in this show happens primarily because of love, especially considering the fact that the genocide that serves as one of the central themes is initiated because of Uther’s grief for Ygraine’s death. It’s as if destiny was trying to fix a problem caused by love by bringing people who would love each other together. Lancelot died and saved the world because he loved Merlin, Gwen and Arthur. Will died protecting the once and future king because he loved his best friend. Freya’s love for Merlin made her the Lady of the Lake. Arthur dies right after his greatest victory in Camlann – where he fights for the love of Camelot, Albion, and the future he believed where kingdoms could be united — so his story could reach the four corners of Albion and unite a divided land under admiration of his rule. Gwen and Arthur’s love gave Albion a Queen that could lead it into the golden age that Arthur started. Love (for his king and his people) was the reason the greatest sorcerer to ever walk the earth kept on fighting for a destiny that both gave and took everything from him (and made him stay and protect the world in the absence of his king while waiting for his return). I’m not going to go into Elyan and Gwaine’s death because I stand by my view that they were absolutely unnecessary.

Destiny could only be fulfilled because of the love that the characters had for each other. Whether that love ended up as a tragedy was of no consequence, because there is no right or wrong in destiny. Only what is, and what isn’t.

Since it’s my fourth time in a row watching Merlin I’ve noticed that like… Nobody fucking knocks on this show. The best example of this is how Merlin just enters Gwen’s whole ass house without knocking, on several occasions.

Merlin is the only one who gets in trouble for it despite not being the only one who does it. Like in The Changeling when Uther just barges into Arthur’s room, or in Eye of the Pheonix when Gwen does the same to Morgana. No privacy allowed in Camelot, apparently.

IF YOU LOVE MERTHUR HEAR ME OUT!’

Heather by Conan Gray

Suits Merthur SO much!

THINK ABOUT IT

Merlin is in love with Arthur but he knows Arthur is in love with Gwen (And Gwen is Queen) . So Merlin wishes he were Gwen.

“Only if you knew how much I liked you

But I watch your eyes as she

Walks by

What a sight for sore eyes

Brighter than the blue sky

She’s got you mesmerised while I die”

And THEN

“Why would you ever kiss me?

I’m not even half as pretty

You gave her your sweater, it’s just polyester

But you like her better

Wish I were Heather”

…….

“Watch as she stands with her, holding your hand

Put your arm ‘round her shoulder, now I’m getting colder

But how could I hate her, she’s such an angel

But then again, kinda wish she were dead as she

Walks by”

ITS LITERALLY PERFECT!😭❤

BONUS:

This is another thing I imagine whenever I listen to the song :

Merlin is in love with Arthur but he knows that Gwen is the Queen and Arthur loves Gwen. So he writes a song about it but because someone might find it he puts 'HEATHER’ instead of Gwen So no one finds out.

(If you don’t understand hes singing “Heather” by conan Gray EXCEPT IN THIS IT’S FROM HIM)

He sings it everytime he’s alone and cries, Thinking about how he wants to be Gwen. He wants to be the one who gets to kiss Arthur, sleep next to him, cuddle with him, and even get carried by him (like Arthur carried Gwen in season 5 iykyk)

He wants to be “Heather”

I’m crying now😭😭💔

——–

Here are the lyrics to the song Heather by Conan Gray btw :) :

I still remember the third of December, me in your sweater

You said it looked better on me than it did you

Only if you knew how much I liked you

But I watch your eyes as she


Walks by

What a sight for sore eyes

Brighter than the blue sky

She’s got you mesmerised while I die


Why would you ever kiss me?

I’m not even half as pretty

You gave her your sweater, it’s just polyester

But you like her better

Wish I were Heather


Watch as she stands with her, holding your hand

Put your arm 'round her shoulder, now I’m getting colder

But how could I hate her, she’s such an angel

But then again, kinda wish she were dead as she


Walks by

What a sight for sore eyes

Brighter than the blue sky

She’s got you mesmerised while I die


Why would you ever kiss me?

I’m not even half as pretty

You gave her your sweater, it’s just polyester

But you like her better

I wish I were Heather

Oh, I wish I were Heather

Oh, oh, wish I were Heather


Why would you ever kiss me?

I’m not even half as pretty

You gave her your sweater, it’s just polyester

But you like her better

Wish I were

the inherent homoeroticism of watching BBC Merlin with your best friend………

SOMEBODY (me) has had the “merlin but it’s a [redacted] au” thought and, well, here we are:

  • the pendragons as a wealthy (but not royal) family, who use magic to conceive a son. ygraine’s life is taken for arthur’s
  • uther, mad with grief and rage, sets out on his own personal revenge mission against magic. this includes lugging about his two young children (morgana and arthur) as he hunts down magical threats. arthur and morgana are taught from childhood not just to hate magic, but to kill anyone/thing with it
  • they spend their lives travelling from town to town, village to village, with none of the comforts of their old life. arthur learns to slay questing beasts, griffins, kelpies, wizards, witches, sorcerers, everything
  • in her teenage years, morgana leaves uther and arthur to their hunts, and tries to settle down in a small, out of the way village. her magic is flaring, and she’s terrified. she knows first hand what a hunter will do to her if she’s discovered
  • uther and arthur continue with their lifestyle. uther gains intelligence about the sorceress, nimueh, who he holds responsible for ygraine’s death. he goes off on a solo-hunt for her.
  • weeks pass, and arthur hears nothing from him. he panics and searches out his sister, begging her to help him find their father. morgana reluctantly agrees
  • morgana and arthur attempt to find uther, running into various magical beings along the way. sometimes they kill them. morgana attempts to reason with arthur, to show him that not every magical being is evil. that it isn’t right for the pendragons to appoint themselves as judge, jury and executioner for every person with magic. arthur, because he is a fundamentally good (righteous) man, begins to listen to her
  • guinevere is the blacksmith who supplies them and other hunters with weapons and other amulets. she can lay runic wards into them, forge weapons of pure iron and bronze
  • they find uther and nimueh. morgana is killed. uther gives his life for hers. nimeuh survives
  • arthur gets himself into trouble. big trouble. he is saved, at the last second, by a warlock
  • “i’m the one who gripped you tight and got you out of there,” huffs merlin, sweating and rather ungraceful, “so, some thanks would be nice”
  • merlin tells arthur there’s a war coming between those with magic and without. that morgana is destined to lead those with magic, but that she’ll leave hordes of death and destruction in her wake, driven mad by years of suppressing her own magic. arthur has to lead the opposing force
  • arthur calls bullshit. he decides he’ll stop the war from even happening, and prevent morgana from going mad. also, fuck off, who does merlin think arthur is? he doesn’t exactly have an army lying around ready to go, and neither does morgana
  • merlin tells him that’s stupid. it’s destiny, fate, all roads lead to camlann. arthur is the one who brings magic back to albion upon defeating morgana; the war has to happen for the good of all who come after
  • arthur very helpfully tells merlin where he can shove his destiny. merlin, determined to do his bit in bringing it about, has no choice but to tag along and look after arthur (and morgana, but they obviously hate each other). they form a begrudging friendship.
  • eventually, push comes to shove. merlin’s got kilgarrah preaching in his ear about destiny. he has the future of the kingdom on his shoulders. he has a war he’s meant to be bringing about, to ensure that the next few centuries are times of peace and prosperity and harmony. sometimes you have to crack a few eggs to bake a cake. merlin doesn’t have a choice
  • arthur tells him his cooking has always been terrible. merlin agrees because arthur is The Righteous Man, and merlin believes in him, loves him. team free will (a ragtag group of arthur, morgana, merlin, gwen, gwaine, lancelot) is born. they will stop the war and keep albion safe
  • it’s too late, of course. somewhere, another antagonist (morgause?) arises to take morgana’s place. mordred stumbles onto the scene, destined to be evil and bring about the end. team free will takes him for their own, raises him to be good and kind and just, has faith he’ll stay on their side. he does
  • eventually all is won. destiny is avoided. magic restored. morgana keeps her sanity. arthur and merlin move to a farm and get chickens
