LIVEJOURNAL WHAT HAVE YOU DONE
EVERYTHING IS HIDEOUS NOW
If you're writing fanfic of two characters as inanimate objects, both of which identify as male, and they had metaphorical babies, do you have to warn for mpreg???
i THINK work is finally winding down to an acceptable level of "EVERYTHING IS ON FIRE!" instead of "EVERYTHING IS ON FIRE AND MY GRANDMA AND MY PUPPY ARE INSIDE THE HOUSE AND I HAVE LOST BOTH MY LEGS AND AN EARTHQUAKE IS HAPPENING!"
but i dare not actually start having fun on the internet again, lest i jinx myself.
....does anybody actually say lest? just me? okay then.
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...
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.
