8x01 - yeah, merlin's helping gaius do his chores - all of them at once. :D
11x01 - potatoes - didn't merlin say this once? - they're not supposed to throw potatoes!
| wryter501 chapter 14 . 3/11
so that explains why merlin was so reckless when he faced morgana in the vale - he thought she could only tattle on him for the poisoning during the fight with the knights of medhir... he didn't know she knew about his magic...
that's amusing - does merlin know where arthur's sorcerer is...
| wryter501 chapter 13 . 3/11
nice take on the vortigern legend - i like the idea of the dragons born down there...
| wryter501 chapter 12 . 3/11
oh, i don't like hyne calling merlin young warlock - that's kilgarrah's name for merlin! ;)
| wryter501 chapter 10 . 3/11
hm, interesting, the differences you've put in morgana and morgause... the prophecies that have arthur ruling with a sorcerer at his side mean that they're not anti-arthur, just uther... but neither of them is plotting to take the throne, or rule at arthur's side? so they're evil, but they're helping arthur... am i getting this right? and aren't they worried that their spell/curse will kill the actual sorcerer meant to help arthur? or do they think that's a job anyone can fill, not just one person's destiny?
ps. tanis seems quite like pelleas, in motive, anyway, find out if i'm the best qualified... but he goes about it entirely differently, and not at all honorably... :)
| wryter501 chapter 8 . 3/11
it's an interesting possibility - that crystal was returned to the vaults, and yet merlin never returned to try to use it again... hm.
| wryter501 chapter 7 . 3/10
i remember, in some of the legends, the fisher king got his name because after he was wounded, that was about all he could do, sit on the bank and fish... nice imagery. :)
i like merlin not asking any questions - he had a tough enough time knowing the prophecies, and what he's seen in the crystals...
| wryter501 chapter 6 . 3/10
interesting, the black dog phenomena... a blessing, maybe, a chance to get your affairs in order, instead of keeling over suddenly and without warning...
| wryter501 chapter 5 . 3/10
now i'm wondering if that assassin isn't somehow one of the future knights of the round table...
and the little scene from 'the poisoned chalice' ep, where gwen hugs merlin... and arthur sees. :)
| wryter501 chapter 4 . 3/10
it's funny that we know something is wrong with arthur when he doesn't have chores for merlin to do...
i think you've got gaius' character down very well, also. he resists believing merlin's sixth sense until there's proof just about every time...
and morgana's conflicted because of arthur drawing the sword from the stone... interesting.
you've got arthur pretty much to a 't', also, i think - when he yells at merlin for letting a sorceress escape... and then dunks merlin in the lake so he can be just as wet as arthur is... :D
| wryter501 chapter 3 . 3/10
that's true - something i didn't realize about that episode about excalibur - uther did say he'd broken the knight's code by fighting in arthur's place, that he'd do it again for arthur's sake... hm, someone has double standards...
oh, lovely, and there's uther blaming merlin for enchanting arthur to have an opinion of his own... and i love merlin standing up for himself, and for arthur! great speech...
| wryter501 chapter 2 . 3/10
you know, a lot of people have explored the situation resulting from arthur learning of merlin's magic as he uses it to defend arthur in an impossible and dangerous circumstance, it's interesting to have uther placed in that position as well...
| wryter501 chapter 1 . 3/10
oh, that's so typically uther... oh, there you are arthur - i just need you to go pull that sword from the stone...
and i remember reading that in the legends, that there were two swords associated with arthur - wasn't there a sheath or scabbard, too, that protected arthur from injury somehow? and a knife...
very intriguing, that uther remembers the sword merlin had gotten for arthur, gaius' reading of those runes... trouble in store for our young warlock, i'm afraid... :)
