Merlin, baby, feed my addiction  
I really liked yesterday's episode, and while there were a couple of... tchy-moments, overall it was good fun in typical Merlin sometimes nonsensical fashion. And it totally set up the rest of the season to be flipping awesome, IMO. But I'm easily pleased. (shut up, tater_mae) And I'd totally forgotten how much I missed having so much pretty on my TV.

Is it stupid to whine about being bombarded with tiny plot-bunnies due to short, no-sound, no-context clips/gifs and set photos? -.-;;;

Title: Untitled
Author: kepp0xy
Rating: G
Characters/Pairing: Arthur/Gwen, semi-unrequited
Warning: A bit of angst, minor spoiler warning in A/N.
Summary: Three less-than-drabbles inspired by the BTS gifs linked in the A/N.

Author's Note: I hadn't intended to post these because they were meant more as an outlet for my hyperactive, post-episode mind, but I enjoyed them more than expected, particularly the last, and thought I'd share! Based on staring incessantly at the gifs by peopleareshapes from the Behind-the-Scenes special, posted here.

HOLA! What were your fave part(s) of the episode?!?

I am excited for Saturday (and Thursday) and possibly other days if other shows are starting again.

I enjoyed a lot of it. Firstly, to see Colin Morgan's adorkable, expressive mug on my TV screen again was awesome and lovely. I liked the scene between he and Arthur when Cedric first tries to weasel his way in (with the horse) and the playing off one another between Arthur and Merlin with Arthur's whole "THIS is how a servant should behave" and Merlin's whole "... seriously?!" (though I was not a fan of Arthur using Merlin as a step stool. Just sayin'.)

I loved the scene between Gaius and Merlin, where Gaius wipes the dung (POOR MERLIN) off Merlin's face and their conversation. Ickle emo!Merlin may be one of my favourite angst fests ever. I just want to snuggle him. ♥

... Oh, I enjoyed half!naked Arthur. For reals. I could watch that aaaaaall day. And Bradley's expressions are constantly entertaining too.

Of course, I liked the A/G scene. I know there's a criticism that it felt a bit forced, but the episode on the whole was rough and shallowly developed - Arthur dropping Merlin so easily was a bit weird, for example. So I thought it was grand, and suited them for where they are and where they'll go. And I adored Gwen's reaction, sort of "LOLOKAY? Can I go get things to tend you now?" and how Arthur was all dazed ♥ Very sweet.

What about you? Didja like it? (And if I missed your review post, I am sorry! This weekend was weirdly busy!)

DUDE - NCIS STARTS UP TOMORROW. EPIC EPISODE OF EPICNESS WILL BE EPIC. This is the best time of the year (I'm a little lame, I know) But my shows are evenly spaced. While Merlin currently owns my soul and uses it as a personal plaything, I have Supernatural and NCIS to tide me over throughout the rest of the week in wonderfully even ways (ie: every 2 days I pretty much have another show of awesomeness). WEE.

I did not know that NCIS starts tomorrow, YAY TUESDAY AND FALL SEASON!!! I am also looking forward to Bones and OMG Criminal Minds' season finale almost gave me a heart attack, and also, also, Castle...and I'm sure I'm missing something, it'll come back to me later.

As for my reaction, here let me point to my episode-induced-thoughts:

Let me know if you'd like more calm-ish, rational thoughts.

Also, HAVE YOU SEEN THIS (EDITED) CLIP YET?!?http://skyebanshee.livejournal.com/302759.html


I have never used so many caps before in a comment o.O;;. Oh, Wizarding Show.

*ahem* sorry for the essay comment you just received. *_*

Never apologize for length of squee/rational squee! We are to be squee partners, are we not? Unless you already have such a partner, in which case we can be...er...comrades?

Yes, I most definitely missed seeing the pretty on my screens every Saturday. The next 12 weeks are going to be one helluva rollercoaster ride.
