SPOILERY SPOILERS IN SPOILER TOWN.

Soooo.. guyss.. :dummy: I'm back with more toons! And completely ignoring how heart shattering the series finale of Merlin was so that I can draw some funnies/cutsies for you. :iconhurrplz:
1) I love the way they did the magic reveal. it felt very well paced and just.. YES. GOOD. I LIKE. :iconimhappyplz: But this would have been funnier, let's face it. :rofl:
2) ~Pandahime20 suggested that Gwaine should find love... with an Apple Tree Dryad. :omg: I'm am so very much in agreement. :eager: And what do you mean he died.. shh, no...
3) You just know Rory from Doctor Who and Merlin would end up being buddies.. there were at least a thousand years for them to hang out and console each other over a board game or two. :rofl: Thanks to ~Taaroko and her friend for the idea!

I hadn't thought of it that way but that makes it so much sadder! :ohnoes: I think I was just going for 'he changes his cloak over the years' idea and he started out with a red one. :aww:

This. THIS is perfect. Arthur would definitely say something like that... And Rory and Merlin as friends through the years is such a beautiful idea.

Rory and Merlin…you know I think it's been a while since I told you how much I love you (in a totally platonic way). You are kinda my muse and looking through your gallery gives me tons of inspiration for both fanfics and original stories. :glomp:

Its barbaric how long I've left it to reply to you, sweetie, (such a busy start to the year! :phew:) but I hope it being late doesn't detract from it - THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SAYING THAT, OH MY GOSH! :iconblushplz: You have no idea how lovely that is to hear!!! :iconiloveyouplz:

Whatcha been writing lately? :eager: What fandoms are you psyched about right now? I'm having to fill the Merlin sized hole in my heart (with The Musketeers, Agents of Shield and The 100 right now.. :D)

Well I've got a original story idea forming in my head that will probably be a good summer project. Has to do with fairies and aliens so it's a little out there but a lot of the things I write are kinda out there. But right now it a big Supernatural high school au inspired by the Breakfast Club. I'm excited about that. 
As for fandoms, I know I'm kinda late but I just got into Game of Thrones and I'm obsessed! I'm also watching Agents of Shield, Charmed and Attack on Titan love them! Haven't seen the Musketeers but I'm told its good so I'm might start.

Oooh, sounds awesome! Both of them! :w00t:

I tried Attack on Titan.. its the most amazing animation but after about 20 episodes I was so depressed - nothing good seemed to ever happen to them! :rofl: Ah well, just not my kind of show I guess (same happened with Death Note, I loved parts of it but couldn't finish it). ^^;

Ah!! Game of Thrones! Love it! :D I never got into Charmed (think I was a bit late to that party and then Supernatural came around to fill that supernatural-themed slot.. :giggle:

Well I'm a huge anime freak so it unsurprising how much I loved it (can't wait for the dub) but if you like lighter stuff you could try Hetalia or Ouran host club. 
I'm also strangely intrigued by angel mythology, one of my favorite things about supernatural, and a friend told angels appeared in Charmed I was curious and now I'm hooked. 
What about you? Is there any obscure field your intrigued by?

blackbirdrose Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I adore Ouran HSHC (and Fruits Basket)... never got into Hetalia (tried only one episode though, so I guess I could've tried harder, lol)

Isn't Evangelion an anime about angels of a sort? My sister used to tell me about it - have you watched it?

I love tv with themes of heaven and hell (though I am not at all religious) so angels are a big plus for me in any show (Constantine, Dogma and Legion are some of the best films I've seen for that.. and obviously Supernatural is the best show if you're into that stuff - also 'cause it delves into other religions and cultural mythologies.. damn it's good at that :w00t:).. I also adore historical events/periods adapted in an interesting way - I'm currently watching Reign, Da Vinci's Demons and Vikings because they all do a fantastic job of taking historical periods and really digging deep for the drama and human interest. :eager:

I also adore the fantastical mixed in with the very day: the new Sleepy Hollow tv show or Once Upon a Time do that nicely. Or films like Big Fish or Pan's Labyrinth where dreamers are made fun of or put down because they believe when others don't, but ultimately are vindicated in some way (although both those films make me bawl like a baby for different reasons... must resinate quite strongly with me) :XD:

I love Regin! Which is unusual because I usually skip out on shows where romance is played wether heavily or not. But something about its rawness kept me coming back.
I love shows with themes of heaven and hell but mostly because I enjoy the obvious black and white of it without seeming so stereotypical and cliche. In today's modern world problems are never so transparently good or bad and villains are rarely thought or as villains by all. And sometimes even the bad stuff is debatable on just how bad it is. 
(But I will admit a love for well constructed villains that can be seen as heroes if you look at them in the right light)
Fantasy mixed with everyday does make the setting more real doesn't it? It makes the story seem closer doesn't it? That's probably why I'm a little more attached to the characters of Once Upon a Time or Grimm 
I too love stories were there is a negative reaction to the unknown or harder to believe. I suppose it can be contributed to fear but I'm not entirely sure. I also like it when the idea of ordinariness is played up a bit. Like the idea that anyone can be a hero (or a villain mwahahahah) and anyone can change the world. You don't necessarily have to be chosen but just have to want to make a change. Gives me a bit more hope.

Absolutely!! Yes to all the above! :w00t: I think the main thing I notice about my favourite shows is that they need an element of escapism (I can count on one hand the 'real life' shows I watch, like The Good Wife, White Collar...) or at least, if they have to be set in the regular world, they have to be damn funny! :rofl:

Anyways your version of the magic reveal is hilarious and the Rory thing just reminds of how I've always wanted a doctor who Merlin crossover episode.

Rory and Merlin together is so god damn perfect, just playing chess or checkers and stuff. Merlin probably got a bit pissed when Rory never got any older. "Blah! Every time I see you, you look exactly the same! What is your secret?"

"...I'm made of plastic..."

"Oh."

"Yeah. So... You wanna play backgammon or what?"

"Yeah, okay."

"And don't even think about using magic."

"Me, I would never. I'm just an innocent old man."

The Stonehenge one is especially interesting because supposedly Merlin moved Stonehenge from Ireland to England or something.

hehehe, Okay, I just have to tell you that I'm about to start writing a fic inspired by this, with Merlin and Rory meeting at Stonehenge and becoming friends over the years...and share their grief as well; pretty much Rory is going to turn from his dreadfully flat character to a wonderfully angsty, self-analyzing immortal being who has lived TWICE as long as the Doctor, who (ppft) is one of the biggest buckets of angst in the universe...and emerges from his 2k years of isolation exactly the same as when he went in. =P
