You guys. This is the best show in the whole wide world of all time ever. Or maybe I just have an inexplicable hard-on for JoFine and his perfect-for-this-role ambiguous acting... IDK.

I can't even gather my thoughts right now I'm just so overwhelmed with the amount of information this show presents us with and throws at us right out of the ballpark. There are reasons and backstories established for everyone but Merlin, really, and you get a sense of each character and their personality.

I have too many thoughts rn. I'll need to rewatch this ep like 5 more times before I really organize them, but I love this show and I'm looking forward to the fandom.

THANK FUCK FOR THIS SHOW. That's all I'm saying.

brb making millions of Camelot icons because I NEEDZ THEM

But also working on beta'ing because I have a plan to get things done today! woo!

also also for anyone interested, there's already a Camelot anon meme [ profile] camelot_gossip

ETA anyone wanna get together and make some comms for this fandom? camelot_slash or camelot_multis or camelotfic?
Ok, so I know I'm totally totally biased etc etc. BUT YOU GUYS. TODAY IS LIKE A PERCIVAL PARTY IN MY PANTS. :P

First I (A MONTH LATE, BUT I DON'T CARE) discovered this fantastic video made by [ profile] visionsbeyond about all the knights OMFG. The actual definition of epic all pairings aside. BBC should take note.

And then. THEN! [ profile] lassroyale aka apparently my LJ soulmate reposted this gorgeous stunning Arthur/Percival drabble she wrote. 100 words of pure devotion/perfection.

Go read it, guys. Right now.

And to finish off the A/P love, here, have some A/P:

It's awesome because it goes from Percival being all scared, to Arthur being all ME GUSTA and finally Percival's FUCK YEAH/CHALLENGE ACCEPTED face. He's so getting some.

Hai all! I bring you Merlin fic recs!

1. First of all, for anyone who's been living under a rock and missed [ profile] eloquent_toast's Wankfest. WTF?! It's closed now, but you should still totally go read everything. DO IT

2. Secondly, hot off the google docs press - [ profile] lassroyale's foray into RPS - COLIN/EOIN PORN. Entitled "Leather Never Tasted So Good" aka "That One Time the Cast Watched the S3 Finale Together, Eoin Wore Leather Gloves and Colin Went Down on Him in an Alley"*

Read this hawtness here

Why yes, I am using my A/P icon as a silent protest against my own reccing of Colin/Eoin :P

*not the official title
Okay, so I'm on a HUGE HUGE HUGE Dean/Cas fanvid kick, making a playlist and checking it twice and all that, and I keep seeing vids like these (NSFW-ish)


My question is this: WHY DOESN'T MERLIN FANDOM HAVE MORE VIDS LIKE THIS? I mean, really. Do we not have enough sound of Merlin and Arthur hollering/moaning/gasping each other's names? HONESTLY.

Do we have them and I just haven't seen any?! WE SHOULD START A MOVEMENT. For many many many more filthy dirty Merlin/Arthur vids y/y?
*sorry that this is the nth time you're seeing this on your flist.

This fic! This fic right there. Written for the KMM prompt: "Arthur is a BNF, Merlin is his prized beta"

It's adorable, schmoopy, a little bit sexy, but also very very meta. Even reccing it here is making me hyper-aware of the connotations and everything. WEIRD.

This fic is also making my heart all warm and fuzzy for all the lovely people for whom I've ever beta'd, especially those with whom it brought me closer. Long epic fics or multi-parters, fics that just drain the life out of you, fics that make you laugh out loud, or ones that make you cry just a little bit. The relationship between a writer and a beta is an important one, and it's not easy to always find the right fit - but some people are just awesome writers, and others awesome betas (lol def. not me) who can tackle anything. I think that this fic is the ultimate BNF/beta story in a way, it's basically a fairy tale.

BUT ENOUGH OF MY RAMBLINGS. GO READ IT (this means you, [ profile] lydkami, but be warned it's very cute)

OH WAIT. WHILE I'M HERE (and on topic of beta'ing). HAVE ANOTHER REC!

This is a gorgeous, funny, cute modern AU Merlin/Arthur, entitled "Once Again, With Feeling" by the lovely [ profile] gallifreycalls it's for the KMM prompt "Ten years ago Arthur broke things off with Merlin because he didn't want a serious relationship. Now Arthur has everything he wants: a lucrative career, nice car, fancy place, and finally out of his father's shadow. However as the holidays approach he realizes that he doesn't have anyone special to spend them with like a family. Late one night a ghost/spirit visits him and allows him to see how different his life would have been if he stayed with Merlin. In this universe he and Merlin are married with kids and happy. When the spirit comes back to return Arthur to his actual life, Arthur pleads to let him stay. The spirit can't allow this but instead gives him the opportunity to return to the past to correct his mistake. Unfortunately the spirit sends Arthur back six months after the break-up and Merlin has started seeing someone else."


Did I mention it's a musical and uses some amazing/hilarious/ABSOLUTELY PERFECT song choices to take us through Arthur's manpain and indecisions? No? Well now I did, and you have no excuse.
