Issues. I Have Them  
Merlin. *sigh* Okay. There a LOT of issues I have with some of the steps the show has been taking. WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU JJJJ?!?!??!? But I'll only pick on this one cos, um, I thought it through.

Morgause should NOT have asked Morgana: "Are you with Uther or are you with ME?"

It makes Morgana look really really... well, dumb. Yes, we get that she's grieving the fact of I AM MAGIC *GASP* HE WILL KILL ME and a heavy dose of loneliness, but Lady Morgana does not take that out on GWEN! BFF Gwen. Fiery and headstrong she is but unreasonable and disproportionate she is not. Morgana has had Uther as a father figure for most of her days and while her disagreement on Uther's policies and dictatorship have surfaced, there still has to be some fondness, dare we say love for her foster father. She may have disowned him, hell, I've disowned a few people in my day, but that doesn't mean I want to destroy their lives because of differing beliefs nor that I don't have some lingering fondness for the person I knew. Why then would Morgana all of a sudden have more intimacy with this woman whom she barely knows. Granted there is this niggling feeling of familiarity and kindred with Woman Who Cured Mah Dreams but if one was your trusted handmaid and companion you don't throw that away. So naturally Morgana is supposed to say to previously laid question: "Sure strange lady I have no loyalty to, I throw my hat in with yours because I am SO GRATEFUL I HAVE NO BAD SLEEPY TIEMS ANYMORE LET US MAKE WAR TOGETHER! This moment is sorely out of congruity to Morgana's character. We love Morgana Le Fay not Morgana Le Dumb. Copyright: The Bro.

Also, OMG! ARTHUR AND MORGANA HAVE PHYSICAL CONTACT!

ARTHUR: YOU ARE NOT MY BELOVED. *SUSPECTS* You don't has sleepy tiems like my ENTIRE PRINCEDOM.
MORGANA: Because of my AWESOMELY AWESOME, that's why!
MERLIN: LIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR.
MORGANA: I don't see you doing anything about it STABLE BOY.

Merlin.


ARTHUR: *suspects*
MERLIN: POTIONS! Potions make everything better.
ARTHUR: *gives away EXCALIBUR king's sword*

Wait, potions are acceptable but magicians are not? *iz puzzled*

MERLIN: *comic reliefs*
UTHER: *is a sack of bones*
MERLIN/ARTHUR/MORGANA: *SCOOBY TIEMS*

*SCENE OF CARING REDUX*

DRAGON: *HAS REGULAR SLEEPY TIEMS*

Even the dragon is tired of this show. Morgana is only dangerous because (in my alternate universe) she wants to KILL YOU Dragon for wanting to kill her cos she PWNS you in the future for trying to PWN her and you HAVE SEEN IT. Also, he's only being sneaky cos he wants his FREEEEEEEDDDDDDDOOOOOOOOOOOOMM!

MERLIN: *DROPS FORESHADOWING SHADOWS ON HIS MOTHER'S LIFE* *HAS THE ANGSTIES OVER MORALS*

HARRY POTTER/RON/HERMIONE: *cast suspicious glances at each other*

Merlin's passive-aggressiveness in having others do his dirty work is just lazy magician-ing. The dragon is wrong Merlin! Morgana is a kick-ass ally if you don't make her an enemy.

Also, throne rooms ALWAYS have a back door. Arthur has obviously not been privileged with this knowledge.

MERLIN NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! OH MY IRISH HEART! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE!?!? THE DRAGON IS WRONG MERLIN! WRONG!

THIS. SCENE.

Oh, SHOW!

Teleportation is awesome. Where has this awesome been?

GAIUS HDU?!?!? MORGANA HAS NOT CHOSEN HER GIFT FOR GOOD BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T HELP HER WHEN SHE ASKED YOU TO!!! BUT SO HORRIBLE BECAUSE YOU HAD OTHER MAGICKY PEOPLE WITH YOU IN YOUR YOUTH!! AND MERLIN IS JUST AS MUCH TO BLAME BUT MORE SO BECAUSE HE KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT MORGANA FEELS AND COULD HAVE DONE SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!!!! NONE OF YOU HELPED HER YOU SONS-A-BITCHES!!!! YOU DESERVE TO DIE!!!!! SHE HAS EVERY RIGHT TO RAZE CAMELOT TO ASHES!!!

I C WHAT U DID THAR DRAGON.




Trogdor. Fire breathing dragons are always a good opening. Trodor. And Merlin, he's doing it cos Uther's a douche.

I just barfed in my mouth a little. Twice.

ARTHUR: Your castle. It's broked.
UTHER: MAH CASTLE! NOOOOOOOOOOOO.

How can dragons be immune to magic? Your logic. It fails Gaius.

*Christian Bale Voice* I AM DRAGONLORD.

*sings* Trogdor was a man... I mean he was a dragon man, Or maybe he was just a dragon...

I bet you five bucks Balinor is Merlin's papa. *sings* Papa can you hear me? Papa can you see me???? Papa? PAPA?

MERLIN: *whinging about rights to know*

MORGANA HAD A RIGHT TO KNOW! *fists of fury*

ARTHUR: *pains* Aye, a scratch. A scratch. A CURSE ON BOTH YOUR HOUSES!

The My Little Prancing Pony Inn.

...and back to the same dirty village we go to in every episode.

But he was still TROGDOR!

Sir Leon. You are brave but dumb. TROGDOR!

The Cave of Wonders Fathers.

MERLIN: AWKWARDS. We needs Dragon halps. *sings* Burninating the countryside, Burninating the peasants, Burninating all the peoples...
PAPA!MERLIN: BLAME UUUUUUUUUUUTHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER! *EMOS* I miss mah woman. I miss mah life. I miss mah peeps. *dooms Camelot*
ARTHUR: *bondus interruptus*

*Frodo and Aragorn ponder near a pond*

GWEN: I WILL RISE FOR MAH PEOPLE. *EOWYN IMITATION*
GAIUS: Morgana is one tough cookie. Don't worry about her. Love is beautiful. Love is wonderous. Love cures all th...
MORGANA: *STABS IN FACE*

Arthur, stop being a douche-ous interruptus. Merlin is trying TO BOND WITH HIS FATHER.

*Google Fu: supercilious: disdainful; having or showing arrogant superiority to and disdain of those one views as unworthy; "some economists are disdainful of their...; expressive of contempt; "curled his lip in a supercilious smile"; "spoke in a sneering jeering manner"; "makes many a sharp comparison but never a mean or snide one"

Forest fu: something Arthur and Merlin do not possess

*sings* Gimme that ole time religion, Gimme that ole time religion, Gimme that ole time religion...

MERLIN: *HARRY POTTER moment*
PAPA!MERLIN: *JAMES POTTER moment*
ARTHUR: *familus interruptus*

We get it. Uther's a bastard. WHERE IN HELL IS MORGANA? We get no recovery time/sister bonding/powers a-growing? From heretofore she shall only be known as VILLAIN.

MERLIN: We could've had happy family tiems. *beams with happiness*
PAPA!MERLIN: *sings* Baaaaaaaaand on the run, And the jailer man and sailor Sam were searching every one...
MERLIN: *sings* Reunited and it feels so goooooood...
PAPA!MERLIN: *JAMES POTTER moment*

*obligatory Arthur-has-mad-sword-skillz scene*

PAPA!MERLIN: *SIRIUS BLACK moment*
MERLIN: PAPAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! *MAGICKS BAD GUY*

Back to the Broked Castle.

ARTHUR: *stretches his kingly muscle*
SIR LEON: *volunteers* YOU FOOL! You will DIE!
KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE CIRCLE

Yay. More secret keeping.

*sings* Gwains worrrrrd, Gwaaaaiiiiinnnnsss wooooorrrrdddd...

DRAGON: *BURNINATES THE KNIGHTS*
SIR LEON: *dies*
MERLIN: *LETO ATREDIES*
SHOW: *SWEEPS MORGANA UNDER A RUG*

Return of the King Right Stuff Astronauts Prince and his Pauper.

GWEN: *PDAs*
ARTHUR: *Surprise!PDAs back*
GAIUS: SONNY!
MERLIN: NOT!PAPAAAAAA!

SHOW: *FAILS*

In conclusion: This season SUCKED. WHY ARE YOU MAKING MORGANA A BAD GUY?!?!?!? Stupid show! It was SO full of imbalance. WHY? WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY??!?!?!?!?! *feels betrayed*

Your icon! Epic win!

There are too many points to count that had me giggling because they're SO TRUE. The dragon bit stands out in particular- 'lmao. @ the whole season'. *gigglefit*

Plus the initial Arthur/Gwen 'we had no time to get to know each other but we're in love' that caught my eye. :D

You have my approval. *g*

The wank!icon is fantabulous, no? It's funny cos it's true. duskicons made it and a whole shipload of folks use it now.

Sunny: Merlin lady in chainssunny_serenity on December 22nd, 2009 05:32 am (UTC)
Word. She's not really the bad guy, my lady in chains. She's just written that way. ;D In my head she was never the bad guy. Only fighting for the right to live. Uther's the real baddie.

i hope they would redeem morgana in s3 though, she's great and doesn't deserve to be the bad guy
Sunny: Merlin Morgana what's comingsunny_serenity on December 22nd, 2009 05:30 am (UTC)
I guess cos I've always been a fan of any incarnation of Le Fay, so I don't ever see her as a 'bad guy'. She's more the martyr I suppose. My railing against the newest form comes from the poor development of her turning of loyalties. I just have to remember it's a kids show and we always have fic!

MERLIN: *HARRY POTTER moment*
PAPA!MERLIN: *JAMES POTTER moment*
ARTHUR: *familus interruptus*

PAPA!MERLIN: *SIRIUS BLACK moment*
MERLIN: PAPAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! *MAGICKS BAD GUY*


I have no idea about how these references apply, but LOL anyway. Although I'm guessing from the 'Sirius Black moment' that Papa!Merlin is killed off in a random, meaningless manner?

Oh no, I feel bad. You've been scarred by my inane ramblings.
