  • Watched Merlin. After hearing people on my flist talk about this show for the past, oh, three or four years, I finally tracked down a website where I could stream some of the episodes. So far, I've watched the first five episodes. It's quite a cute show, and Colin Morgan and Bradley James have very funny, very adorable facial expressions.

    For those of you who have seen the series, do you have any recommendations of episodes that I absolutely must watch ASAP? Conversely, any episodes I ought to skip? I tend to watch shows chronologically, and I'll probably watch the whole series sooner or later, but since there are quite a few episodes of this show, I don't mind watching the best ones first. Don't worry about spoiling me, I've already read up on all the major plot points.

    Also, since I can't watch a show without immediately delving into a new fandom, I've also been...

  • Reading Merlin fanfiction. ...Yep. OK, I think I'm a little bit of an addict when it comes to fic. Seriously. When I finish watching a show, or seeing a movie, or reading a book, my first thought is always, NOW I MUST READ SOME FANFIC FOR THIS. Then I run to my computer so fast that I leave trails of smoke behind. that normal? Please tell me it is.

  • Worked on my [ profile] help_japan fics. Which...are spriraling wildly out of control, sob. They were only supposed to be 1k and 5k words, respectively, but apparently I am no longer able to write anything longer than, like, ten thousands words. Ever. Sob. I know it's taking me for-freakin'-ever to finish these danged things, but if you can bear with me a while longer, dear recipients, I promise you will get more bang for your buck! Mea culpa, dudes. :/

So, what's up with y'all?

There's only one Merlin episode I don't much like and that's not until towards the end of S3, so I'm not much help on the selective viewing front. :D:D I'd suggest watching them in order, they're all good. ♥

If you want fanfic (and yes, I'm just the same) [ profile] marguerite_26 does great recs. :)

Hee! I'll watch them all, then. So far, so good! :D

Thank you for the rec! I'll check her journal out!

I just got into it myself not to long ago and I personally prefer the more humorous episodes. Beauty and the Best Part 1 (, Beauty and the Beast Part 2 (, Goblin's Gold (, The Changeling (

I also really liked this episode: The Moment of Truth ( It guest stars Joe Dempsie, who played Chris on Skins. Plus this episodes good too: Gwaine (

Oh, recs!

Intended is terrific, and I'm glad you reminded me, cause for some dumb reason I didn't bookmark it at the time.

Here's a lovely handfasting fic from the Let's Get Gay Married! fic meme.

I have a few other recs too.

Also, UTHER. Mmmm, Uther.

EDIT: And yes, I do the same thing. If there's no fic, I tend to compulsively seek out reviews.

Yay, recs! Thank you!

And yes, Uther. Good heavens, but ASH is a handsome man.

At least you're doing something productive, seeking out reviews! I tend to track down the one little corner of the internet where there are a few fics, and frantically refresh the page over and over, hoping that more will appear. Ahem. Addicted to fic? Moi? Surely not!

There's an episode where he changes shirts on-camera. I think that's my favorite one.

Hahahah. At least there's a lot of Merlin fic out there!

I've only watched the first two seasons so far: I'd say going in order is just fine. :)

If you want fic, check out waldorph, mercurial_wit, seperis, green_grrl for recs, and thehoyden. And, mm, misswinterhil, suaine, aithris... Do I have a SHITTON of Merlin fic bookmarked? Nooooo...
