My thoughts on Merlin 4x11 and a little rant at the end... )

My thread at the Holiday Love Meme is still open! Comment on mine here! Thanks to the one person who has commented on it so far! You're comment made my day ♥!

I have also opened up the 2011 Arthur & Gwen Christmas Fest over at my comm [livejournal.com profile] m_in_wonderland. I encourage anyone who loves A/G or loved A/G up till 4x09 to join in and have lots of fun! Maybe you don't like what has happened in series 4, but you still loved A/G in the first place for many reasons and why not celebrate that and just for a while forget the stuff you don't like!

This is the first episode of this series that I want to want again and again. I must admit I was scared to watch this one but it was better than I thought it would be.

somewhat coherent review this way.... )
ella_rose88: (Arthur/Gwen hand holding gif)
so I watched it yesterday and I'm in shock. I knew it was gonna happen but I'm still in shock. My rambling review under the cut.

Review this way... )
ella_rose88: (Misha made me do it!)
so I just signed up for the [livejournal.com profile] reel_merlin thing and I'm writing a Merlin fic cross over with It's a Wonderful Life (Thank god we have the movie too cuz I haven't seen it in a while). I decided to do this for a few reasons! 1. there are not many A/G fics being written on there and its mostly filled with A/M with G/L (which annoys me because I know that there are heaps of A/G fans and more of us then actual G/L fans) and 2. Misha made me using a icon of Chris Hemsworth so I couldn't refuse.

I had a nightmare last night where Gwen did have an affair with Lancelot and it left me feeling very distressed. I just hope that the producers of the show don't really hint at this possibility because it would break my little A/G shipper heart. I discussed with [livejournal.com profile] hmsharmony the other day that they probably won't full on hint on it but they may leave it open for interpretation as they seem to be basing the show on the most popular versions of the legends. I think that it would be really sad if they did change from A/G to G/L. I hope that Jen is right and that they will leave it so that A/G fans are happy and can imagine a/G being happily married with little kids and the other shippers can do what they want.

I've just created a fan work community for all of my stuff at [livejournal.com profile] m_in_wonderland, so feel free to comment there too. Tell me what you think of the layout and that too. I'm quite impressed with it myself!
ella_rose88: (Keep Calm and spoiler free)
As many of you know I've been suffering from and depression/anxiety for a while. Last night, my parents spoke to me about how they were worried about my internet usage and how Merlin is affecting my life (and us going overseas).

Jen suggested a while ago about leaving it for a while, and that it what I've decided to do. I'm still be around, but I won't be looking at any spoilers from now on. This will be tough as I really enjoy it, but I'm determined.

I have made a lot of friends and I will still be around, so you can always comment on my page or email me at miladyinpurple@gmail.com if you ever feel the need to talk. I will porbably not be on tumblr for a while. At least till this block of filming is over because that place is filled with spoilers.

I know that I have two people that I'm supporting with their Merlin BB's and I will still be there for you guys.I am also a co-mod over at [livejournal.com profile] ag_fics so I will still be helping run that.

+I've been very distracted by all the Merlin spoilers! I won't mention anything though because I know some people are trying to avoid them. LOL it is hard posting the pics and I keep stuffing up the LJ cut and poor Jen had to tell me that she could see a picture. Luckily she didn't see anything! I was scared she was going to bite or throw something at me! She didn't! :P[Poll #1736081]+Enjoying speculating with my friends about Merlin. Although, I'm sad that some people I can't squee with because they are avoiding them. I love having comment conversations with people! But I will have to deal with it I guess! Maybe we could have "Let's speculate what is going to happen" party without discussing anything spoilery.

♥  Firstly, I've just posted the poll about the First Long Challenge over at [livejournal.com profile] ag_fics HERE. Basically we just want to know how many people are planning to enter the challenge so we have an idea of numbers. So please if you have the free time, hop over there and do the poll. It's super quick to fill out.

♥ I'm got another cold now which is just so annoying. For many reasons because I was going to try and do three days at the child care centre. But oh well that is life. What can ya do?

♥ I've been cheer-leading both [livejournal.com profile] rainbow_connec and [livejournal.com profile] railise with their Merlin Big Bang and I'm really enjoying it girls! Keep up the great work! I'm enjoying working with your girls so far.

♥ Trying to decided whether to do what [livejournal.com profile] mydoctortennant is doing and remain spoiler free with Merlin. I mean it would mean that I don't know what might happen and be like really surprised when I watch it. That would be good, except that I'm totally not good at not being in the know. I'm the kind of girl that reads the end of a book before the beginning and middle. Which is weird, I know. But its a habit that I got into doing. Also I like speculating what might happen. That's fun. But then last year when we got those pics of the A/G snog in the courtyard and then we saw it in 3x13 it wasn't has good because 1. I didn't like the camera view (it was too far away) and 2. I had already seen it because someone posted the video, so it wasn't as special I guess then if I didn't see it before.
ella_rose88: (Gwen Series 3 promo pic)
So I've been looking at the wonderful manifestos that people have written about Gwen or A/G and I'm wondering what on earth is a manifesto? So if anyone knows, please explain it to me. Why you may be asking do I want to know? Well, because I would love to write a little one that includes all the lovely Gwen or A/G moments from series 3 in it. Also I noticed that at the end of it, people tend to recommend their favourite fics or fanworks. I know that these are based on their opinions (which is fine and awesome!) but there were a few that I thought were really great and weren't included. Some of the fics that I loved were the first A/G fics I had read and enjoyed so much. Some fics that I loved are sometimes by people that aren't well known. Being one of the mods over at [livejournal.com profile] ag_fics has given me the opportunity to meet new people that are great fic writers, but they sometimes don't get the recognition that they deserve. So I guess what I really would love to do is write a short manifesto (with the help of others) and then at the end include a rec' section that I will devise based on what people suggest to me. So tell me what you guys think?

 So I know I have already done one poll asking whether anyone would like to be involved with a Merlin re-watch/macro parties. However I need some more information since I now know how many people want to be involved. So please complete it...[Poll #1670742]Now my friend [livejournal.com profile] mustbethursday3 had the suggestion that we could watch the episodes with the cast commentaries or re-watch the cast diaries. So if you would like to watch any of the commentaries from series 1-3, please just put that in your answers.

 Hello everyone,

Last night I read the most amazing fic. It's called Always and it was written by [livejournal.com profile] mara93. Please read it and comment because I just love her writing style and the way she writes A/G. So go and read it!
ella_rose88: (I thought I lost you)
Here are my thoughts on  Merlin Series 3, Episode 1 (3x01) "The Tears of Uther Pendragon"

Please note: this contains spoilers, so click on the cut. Also my comments are not really intelligent, just my incoherent thoughts, but I would love to discuss with anyone your thoughts on the episode.

SPOILERS FOR 3 X 01... )

mood:  excited (mood theme by [livejournal.com profile] wikked_angel_78 )
ella_rose88: (A/G's first kiss)
Thanks very much to [livejournal.com profile] hmsharmony for all the Arthur/ Gwen fanvid recs.

You can find them here:

Video 1 Video 2 Video 3 Video 4 Video 5
The first two are just beautiful and I love the songs. I've never listened to them but I think that they suit A/G so much.

The third one is just GAH.. though it is short I loved it. And the song too *hearts*

OMFG THE FOURTH ONE IS JUST EPIC AND THE SONG (I'm downloading it because its sooo beautiful yet sad and soooooooooooooo A/G it hurts)
And finally the last video is just great because its a Lifehouse song. I love Lifehouse!

Enjoy and comment on the vids or here! Comments = LOVE!!!
A/G goodies this way hehe... )

I would like to firstly say thank you to all the people who commented on my previous posts. You know who you are and I'm very grateful that despite all the conflict that happened, you were all soooo nice to me. Of course that is no surprise, but with all the emotions I was feeling (I'm wasn't aware of what was happening so to find out out of the blue on my post was a lot)I was afraid how people would react. But it's good to know that despite everything that has happened people are being open and friendly. I was afraid because, well to be honest I don't know why. That's just what I do. I'm sure that whatever happens we will still keep in contact. I say this because I hope that we do. There is so much epic discussions and squeeing to be had once series 3 comes.

I would also like to say a special thank you to [livejournal.com profile] hmsharmony , [livejournal.com profile] mydoctortennant , [info]sophielou21 for emailing me constantly and reassuring me when I was feeling down. I truly appreciate it more than you know.

Now I'm still going to do a Merlin re-watch. When this will happen is still in doubt. I have a lot going on at the moment with uni, but I promise you I'm going to do it.
