Things I Learned on the Internet Today: Version Merlin RPF (with links)
by stungunbilly

  • Bradley James is the unholy, time-travelling British lovechild of Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki. Or, okay, he's just big-eyed and pretty-faced and charming and bouncy. And exudes friendly homoeroticism. Is a ridiculous goofball.
  • He's also King, no, Prince Arthur. I may heart him madly. No, seriously, I want to feed him steak  and make him wear eyeliner.
  • Bradley is very oppressed.
  • When fan fiction writers depict Merlin or his actor, Colin Morgan, as emotional, well. It's accurate characterization. Upon notice he'd been selected for the role of Merlin, Colin says   "I ran around my house screaming". He also tells us that he was selected for the role based largely on a personality that matches Merlin's, so there you have it.
  • Angel Coulby, who plays Gwen, is older than the boys and obviously not trained to kill with ninja-like stealth. Otherwise, I suspect there'd be no more Merlin.
  • She's truly breathtaking.
  • Colin Morgan was in an Almodovar play, and is a Pratchett fan. Way to combine gay cred with hot geekdom, Colin.
  • Both Angel and Colin guest-spotted on Doctor Who. Which leads to:
  • RTD is like an English Joss Whedon, and obv. knows how to set up hot RPS connections for the fans. And he has Whedon on the floor and begging when it comes to hot-glbt-on-screen.
  • Colin's kind of amazingly gorgeous in a geeky way.
  • Anthony Head, while handsome and talented and rather ridiculously beloved by the entire World Fandom, allows himself to be led astray by foolish children (note final thirty seconds of film).
  • Morgana le Fay is portrayed by Katie McGrath, who would like to see action figures of Merlin, Gwen, Morgana and Arthur. You speak to my heart, Katie. I too want tiny dolls to force into compromising positions.
  • Katie was allowed to use her natural Irish inflection because Colin can do an English accent so well. This is clearly a sign from above that Merlin/Morgana is destined to boom. Or that I think Northern Irish accents are hot, one of those.
  • Apparently (according to my research assistant, Monsieur Google) Katie McGrath and Angel Coulby live in different universes except when on screen together. This is wrong, very wrong. Will write drabbles for vids of them chatting and/or exchanging bodily contacts.

ETA: Apparently, there is such a thing as an "Arthur-Merlin Protocol".
"A problem is considered to be decidable if whenever the answer is "yes", Merlin has some series of responses which will cause Arthur to accept at least 2/3 of the time, and if whenever the answer is "no", Arthur will never accept more than 1/3 of the time."

This needs to be a modern au, I think. Most likely cyberpunk.
