Bitter Hatred? You Betcha!  
Well now, THAT was a wonderful retelling of The Two Towers. Oh, no. This is Merlin.

LOVE the new OMG!CAUGHT and MUA!HAHAHA! faces from Katie. LOVE IT. I need those screen caps to makey iconses.

Um, is there anyone else not seeing this whole hypocrisy thing coming from Merlin?! If nothing else, his revealing that he has magic would have saved Morgana from her bitter hate... hell, he could even teach her The Force. He's a terrible Yoda. ...I guess cos he had such a terrible, inconsistent Yoda in Gaius. Why, exactly would they be surprised by her treatment of them? Gaius had suspicions, and or probably knew Morgana was from a magic family cos HELLO Golois is her father... well, we haven't gotten to that part yet in this retelling... but if Gaius had an inkling of what was going on with Morgana and was a true warlock/healer he wouldn't have tried to suppress her nature. He would've been Giles. The best Watcher ever. Merlin tried to kill her. So now Morgana tries to kill him. Turnabout is fair play, sir. Fair play! See, this is why I don't like secrets. It unnecessarily gives people ulcers and/or death. Wow, I'm in such a bad place right now I should stop... Basically, I love Morgana because I know what it's like to be in a situation like hers. All that rage and hurt can only come out in the form of bitter vengeance and hatred when everything that you trust and cherish has been a complete total lie. Betrayal is not something lightly taken. And damn it feels good to have your day of justice.

Then I have to remember that Morgana started as a healer and then became demonised by a great many tellings because someone needed to be the Big Bad in this chauvinistic legendy myth thingy. Those cop out bastards. Eventually somebody came along and corrected that though and gave her one last grace note of taking Arthur to Avalon. And then Marion Zimmer Bradley gave us the awesome side of the story. I should seriously re-read that to calm me down.

In other news, I think we might have a new kitty... it's kind of a mutual adoption. He's a cutie, no more than three months old and all black and he lurks in the shadows. I've put out some food and he's come back. A few more times and he should be more approachable. We'll see. Every witch needs her familiar.

Merlin is an idiot! He screwed up the first time around when he should have told Morgana about his magic and then he goes ahead and does it again when he had a perfect opportunity.

I'm starting to really cheer for the bad guys. I want Morgana to beat Merlin and Uther. I don't really care if Camelot goes down (even though we know that's not happening any time soon) so long as she leaves Arthur in one piece. (What? He's too pretty to die!)

I really need to finish The Mists of Avalon. I started a while ago, but uni has fried my brain and I need cheesy light stuff to read and MoA is such heavy-going.

Aw! Kitty!

Talk about not having sense. It's sad when they make their lead character such a dunce! How is this possible? Wouldn't you want to protect your character not make him an imbecile?

I'm so for Team 'Evil' because of they're not being really evil. It's not like they want to drown babies and wives. I was kind of peeved that Morgana's reservations about raising the army of the dead sole rested on her lack of faith in her own magic and not the omg!people!I!love!may!get!hurt concern... like how she would have in s1.

Oh, MoA really does make everything better. It's like walking in a zen garden.

We call him/her/it Shadow because of the lurkiness. SO. CUTE.

DUDE! There was this all black cat that I wanted at the humaine society, and the convo went like this:

Me: If i had to have a cat, it'd be that black one
Mom:I thought you didnt like cats?
Mele:She does if its all back.
Mom:It would be her... what is it called? her minion?
Mele:No, not minion... its something else.
Mom:Thats right, her familiar
Mele: Because shes a witch.

LMAO. Captain Obvious that one.

Oh, family! So. Funny. So'd you guys get another dog?

He's a cutie and so totally wee. His/her has been dubbed Shadow due to the lurking.
