EDIT: Sorry for my absence lately. More on tumblr actually. ;) I think this is just a phase... We'll see... Cannot stop blogging all about "Merlin". :la: :boogie: :love: I'm still not over this series yet... :no: Let's keep the Merlin-candle burning!!! :woohoo: :heart:


How can I possibly describe what I feel about what happened to us? To US, who never dare to hope to see so much epicness on one spot, in only three little days. But we have. And we'll never ever forget... :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:
:iconarthurbbclaplz: :iconmerlinbbclaplz:

I'm an ocean of tears right now. The thought, that this should be indeed the last season of the series "Merlin", this humorous, beautiful, touching interpretation of the Arthurian Legend, really pierces me. But it seems that this gets more and more obvious for all of us.

So the last week me and my dear friend Rogi37 were there again, in Pierrefonds in France, where they were filming the 5th season of "Merlin". We stayed there for the 2nd time this year, but last time we missed the cast and crew by two little days and now... the full epicness unfolded before us. :wow: :wow: :wow: :wow:
Can't find the words to say what that means to me, as a long year-lover of the Arthurian Legend. And now seeing those sweet, nice and very sexy cast-members giving all these legendary names like Arthur, Guinevere, Percival, Gwaine and most and above all Merlin, these stunning, beautiful faces we all know and love... One of the best moments in my entire life. Hopelessly exaggerated, but for me it is the truth, I can tell, because it's only one, but the PERFECT, embodiment of all these epic characters I loved half of my life...

They were all such cuties, really! So nice! Colin smiles WHENEVER we've seen him. :heart: Katie/Morgana was SHINING -and so did Angel/Guinevere :aww:, the knights were laughing most of the time :giggle:, and especially our beloved once and future king Bradley James was in an excellent mood these days - we were all stunnend by his smiles and smirks... :squee: :iconarthurbbclaplz: Wtf? :faint: :nuu: :faint: :nuu: :faint: :nuu: :faint: :nuu: :faint:
They passed us by once and once again, very close, so close that you could've touched them. We made many photos and films, but it's weird to look at them now and to understand, that this had REALLY happened to US. We lived the legend! Our dreams and hopes turned into REALITY! How that? I still don't get it... It was overwhelming... :nuu:

We saw ALL of them filming. Except Katie McGrath/Morgana. But to my surprise we nonetheless had the chance to watch her go by one bright and early morning - along with Alexander Vlahos/ (Spoiler ahead!!!! Mordred!), Sir Richard Wilson/Gaius and Rupert Young/Sir Leon, followed by a sweet and bright smiling Colin Morgan/Merlin and last but not least by Bradley James/Arthur, who smirked all around and threw out TWO breathtaking "G'mornings"!!! :love: Really, we were all shocked... Although... I managed to answer. Yes... I did.  Me... WHATEVER??? :faint:

I addressed Sir Gwaine/Eoin Macken with an enthusiastic "BONJOUR", as he passed by, and he REALLY RETURNED THAT TO ME! My heart...

On the last, full day we were on set, there was a really... breathtaking, important moment for me in the courtyard, because I suddenly had to face Mr James alone (without Rogi or my other friends!!! Gosh... :nuu:), together with other, strange fans I didn't know, as he walked by, very relaxed and laughing, alongside his mother (There were rumours in the air, that she was his mother. And yes, now we are sure.^^) and Tom Hopper/Sir Percival. A surreal, very special moment, I can say. The persons I so admire, that I only knew from TV, DVD, WWW, pictures... ALIVE... and in COLOUR right before my eyes.

And that again and again.
I can tell this whole trip was epicness.
Nothing less. :iconarthurbbclaplz: :iconarthurbbclaplz: :iconarthurbbclaplz:

We missed some Colin-scenes and Bradley giving autographs later on, what REALLY broke our hearts. But we had other special and wonderful moments with them like a Colin Morgan picking up a bunch of flowers once and once again. Not to forget the whole big filming-scene at the first day in the courtyard: So many knights and capes and horses! And a Guinevere running down the epic stairs of the guestwing, repeatedly shouting "Arthur!" - over and over again.
It was so awesome. :omg: :omg: :omg: :omg: :omg: :omg:

Being there for the first time while filming was made, it also seems it was our last time. I REALLY hope, that this wouldn't come true so fast. One other season would be great to give this the whole epic ending it deserves... (All the tragedy, I'm afraid they never get into the series, whether or not there will be a season 6... >.< But I still hope.) Yeah, let us hope. That we'll have the chance to return to France, to meet our new friends there and this epic, epic people of the "Merlin"-crew and cast again.
Let's all hope the best. :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray:

Oh and I'll try and give you some photos here during the next days, if I could manage to edit them after work. :work:

Geeeeeeez, folks, THIS was a fairytale come true. :love: :love: :love: :love:
I'm so happy, that we have made this journey. And so thankful...
A special, very special thanks to my Rogi and that she made this marvellous trip with me... Ever and ever again: We will be. I know it. WE WILL TOTALLY BEAT THEM! :w00t: Cause I've got the magic phrase... ;)
And I'll forever miss every single, exciting moment of it.

I've seen him... Finally... :tears: :happybounce: Whatever...
:iconarthurbbclaplz: :faint:

Bye for once... :wave:


EDIT December 2012

The end...

of Merlin.

"Bradley James (King Arthur) said: "The Merlin years have provided me with fond memories, great experiences and beloved friends and all the while we were supported by a devoted fan base who made the show a unique, surreal and special experience. My words won't do justice to the honour of being King Arthur so I shall just say that it has been an exceptional one and that knowing the show has been a part of so many people's lives, has been humbling."

Colin Morgan (Merlin) commented: "From the beginning this was always going to be a five year journey that we embarked on and I think the show has run its natural course. The show has grown and grown each year and now we've arrived at its strongest point and we've achieved what we set out to do… I know this is the end, and I know this is goodbye, but thank you for being there on the journey with us because it has been a lot of fun!" —

'Merlin' cast react to show's end

:cries: :tears:

It will take some time, until I'll find comfort in the memory of it all. Don't cry, because it's over. Smile, because it happened, eh? Bullshit. Right now my heart is broken. Right now I'm gonna mourn the death of this heartwarming series. It hurts much more than I've expected. We all suspected it in a way after all these rumours, but it hurts nonetheless. The writers failed in many ways, I admit that. But there are so many things much more important than that - not at least this beautiful, amazing, funny and touching interpretation of these well known characters by the awesome cast we all learned to love. It was so unique...
The first year of my Merlin-love turned out to be the last. This pierces me. Oh I think I will remember and love it and be thankful for what I experienced. But not now. Not now...

The king is dead.
Long live the king.

:cries: :cries: :cries: :cries: :cries: :cries: :cries: :cries: :cries: :cries: :cries: :cries: :cries: :cries: :cries: :cries: :cries: :cries:

I will always love and follow my OTP. And my OT4. Colin, Angel, Katie... Bradley. THANK YOU SO MUCH. :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: Thank you for beeing the perfect embodiment of the characters I love since childhood. I will remember. And I'll hope, that the movies will come up one day. :pray:
I will celebrate my fave series whenever I like.
I will cheer up, like "HI, ANGEL!" all the way, because I had the chance to be part of it. (In a time...)
And I will hold up the love - and spread it.

So... 4 more episodes to go.
The battle of Camlann at last.
I so will hate/love this.



EDIT May 2013:

Seen it. Again. For the 4th time. Seen the ever last eps last night AGAIN. What am I, mad or something?! :facepalm: I have no words anymore. It is one thing to KNOW how the legend ends. And a completely other to really watch him die. And this is exact the same feeling which I had at the first time I saw this. I think this will never get better. NEVER. Whenever I see that my heart will be ripped into tiny little pieces. I cried like hell and felt no relief.
But it's the only chance to have him near. The only way for someone like me. So I have to stay 'til the very end. And that's it.

My king...

Today… It feels like a hangover. Really. Harder than the last times after seeing this. I don't wanna let go. I don't want something so good, so unique and fantastic to end. I DON'T WANT! And I miss him like hell. Gosh, guys… The whole day, every hour, every minute. And he will never be Arthur again. I can't understand this. :no:


Would you at least be so kind and DO something, Bradley?! This will never give me my Arthur back, I know. But I hope that it'll comfort me a bit…

There is a hole inside my chest.
Hurts so much…

Camelot - Chateau de Pierrefonds June 2015 15 by MorgainePendragon
Camelot - Chateau de Pierrefonds June 2015 15

I’m back baes! :wave: Back from our marvellous trip to Pierrefonds, France, again! Me and my best friend, the everlasting Merlin to my Arthur merlination ;), have been there for the third time now and we swore to each other, that this wasn’t the last time at all.

Last time we’ve been there was back in september 2012, when the last days of filming took place. It was one of the best experiences in my entire life so far. But this trip now was very similar to the one we made back in june/july 2012, when we visited our “Camelot” for the first time. There wasn’t any filming then and now. It was the most relaxing time and it really felt like holidays. We even had a blanket with us and spent hours and hours just sitting under the castle walls, chilling and relaxing, reading and drawing (yes I began to draw the castle ;)) and just being in a constant state of AWE. :wow:

The weather was ALWAYS sunny and warm. We got our skin sunburned A LOT. ;) We’ve spent several hours inside of the castle too, of course. And we’ve seen places in there, we never saw before. One fine day we’ll get up to the highest tower as well, let me tell you! This is part of our plan for the next time we travel there! ;) The beautiful courtyard again witnessed a lot of our serious talks as well as our laughter - some things never change, yes good ;). We stood where our beloved ones stood. We took pictures of EVERY PLACE we could connect to Arthur, Merlin, Gwen or Morgana - or to our experience back in september 2012. And there were A LOT of emotions. Of course. Most of them REALLY good. ;) (And now… I’ve got kind of a hangover tbh just BECAUSE it was so unique and outstandingly beautiful… Wanna go back. NOW! I already miss it with all my heart and soul. So calm and peaceful there. Kind of another world. I will always miss it… :tears:)

This entire trip, these precious days there, were complete euphoria. No discussion. But it made us very clear as well, what we’re missing, what we will ALWAYS miss: Merlin. The entire show as well as this lovely cast we saw filming back then. It was weird sometimes to stood at places where they stood and to know, that it will never happen again. But then again there is the undeniable fact, that THIS CASTLE will ALWAYS stay there. It is not a set that could be destroyed after filming. It will always be there, we could always return to our Camelot and we could always remember all these funny and emotional scenes with our beloved ones. It really comforts me to know, that there’ll always be our Camelot out there. In this way or another. This is where my heart belongs. This is where my inspiration started. This is where my love for it always grows. Right back to my very roots :heart: :heart: :heart:.

Listening to Skylar Grey’s song “Coming home” in our car while arriving at the castle was the best. “I know my kingdom awaits, and they’ve forgiven my mistakes. Tell the world I’m coming home…” I cried. I mean, who wouldn’t in the face of such epicness. We are talking about a really HUGE and beautiful castle/setting here. So impressive when you first arrive at the village and still impressive when you’re leaving, believe me. It is so awesome. But still… this description doesn’t come any close. 

And it all ended with our discovery of a place/view we all know very well from the series. Right before our departure, we found the very place, where Arthur and Merlin were riding on their horses side by side over the fields back to the castle. THIS was the perfect ending of another unforgettable, beautiful trip to Camelot. :D

I’m very thankful (in many, many ways) that we had the chance and possibility to go back there. In memoriam Merlin BBC. Always. And we’ll return. Again. THAT is for sure guys. ;)

Feel yourselves hugged very tightly! :)

I just fell in love with your photos of Pierrefonds castle. Thank you for sharing the beauty of this gorgeous place with DeviantArt users! Now I'm definitely inclined to visit it if I'll have another chance to take a trip to France.)
