i have now seen merlin 04x04.
my god almighty.
the complete lack of subtext was just...
it was like they filmed a fanfic, from start to finish. up to and including the convenient lack of gwen.
i mean... i mean...
daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn.
IT WAS DELIGHTFUL THOUGH. SUPER SUPER DELIGHTFUL. if they make a cartoon of the hooray adventures of arthur and merlin, voiced by bradley james and colin morgan, narrated by john hurt, then I hope every episode is like this one was. SHENANIGANS, YOU ARE WHY I WATCH THIS SHOW. THANK YOU FOR BEING IN THIS EPISODE.
so. many. shenanigans!

but there should have been some gwen. "No Arthur, you're king now. You can't go galloping off like this! Leave it to Leon, he's amazing, you trust him, don't you? You have to bring reassurance to the people now, not hunt down thieves." *arthur makes broody face* "Guinevere, I have to go. If I cannot find a simple thief, how am I to show my people I am capable of ruling? Oh! I am so tortured! I miss my daddy!" *gwen makes her boobs look really good, brings one hand up to softly touch arthur on the jaw* "I understand, but please. Be careful, not just for me, but for the kingdom."
END SCENE, PROCEED TO THE REST OF THE SHENANIGANS.

I really just can't get over the fact that Merlin pantsed King Arthur. In the middle of a council. He pantsed him.

This reign will survive on nothing more than elbow grease and audacity, I'm sure of it.

the pantsing. was. gorgeous.
like sun shining out of every bodily orifice gorgeous.

HE PANTSED HIM AND EVERYBODY ELSE WAS LIKE "OH, THAT MERLIN, HE IS SUCH A SCAMP, LET'S MOVE ON."
Last season, Arthur would have SACKED him for that! This season he's like "oh, god, everybody's going to talk about this when I'm not in the room! what do I do??? OH, LET'S GO ON A QUEST AND TAUNT MERLIN ABOUT THE STEW AND TRUST HIS INTUITION."

Ugh, also, I now really want embarrassment!kink smut, wherein Arthur secretly gets off on being mortified in public by his manservant. MAKE IT HAPPEN.

LOL THAT MERLIN, WHAT A ROGUE, WHAT A RAKE, WHAT A CHARMING YOUNG FELLOW. IT IS GOOD THAT THE KING HAS HIM TO RELIEVE HIS CARES AND BURDENS WITH LEVITY AND SHENANIGANS.

Embarrassment!kink smut. Hnnnngghhh. HOW WOULD IT EVEN WORK THOUGH, MIZU? I THINK THIS CALLS FOR A ~COLLABORATION.

Dude, last series I enjoyed the heck out of the show, but then this summer so much badness happened in the fandom that it was almost close to what happened with me and doctor who, IE, the fandom killed my love for the show and I just burned the fuck out on it. (Don't worry, you have nothing to do with this badness.) I was so worried that coming into a new series I suddenly would realize what a crap show it is and the fandom had soured and blah blah blah. BUT INSTEAD EVERY EPISODE HAS BEEN SOLID FUCKING GOLD YAY YAY YAY SHENANIGANS YAY! I'm still all working through my fandom badness but any worries about the show not being worth it now that I have all this ~baggage~ is poof!gone. THANK YOU AWESOME SHOW FOR HAVING ALMOST ALL OF BRADLEY JAMES NAKED ON SCREEN IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER AT DIFFERENT TIMES AND ALSO THOSE OTHER FUN THINGS LIKE PLOT AND STUFF.
