'Ello, dearies!

I'm a rather nerdy history major and the most logically-minded art student I know. My dream job is to work as curator for a museum of ancient artifacts and/or manuscripts, I love the British Isles, and am a sucker for all things Arthurian. I could listen to cellos for the rest of my life and be happy, I love to read, love to write, and when I'm feeling clever, I adore nothing more than making up puns. I've been an archer for longer than Katniss, Merida, and Jeremy Renner, and I spend far, far, far too much time fangirling over How to Train Your Dragon, BBC's Merlin, Rise of the Guardians, and all the other wonderful things you will find on my blog.

For blog and country! Cheerio!

Merlin

Hmmm, that one is a bit hazy.

I remember I started watching Merlin because I’ve always been an Arthurian nut since I was a kid, and anything with ‘Merlin’ in the title caught my eye. I watched the first season as it aired (in the US, anyway) but the show was kind of young and undeveloped then, and I didn’t really stick with it.

Fast forward a few years, my sister was watching it one day and I was all oh yeah I remember that show and I sat down with her to watch it had absolutely no idea what was going on. I realized rather quickly I’d missed a bit. As it turned out, I’d missed the entire second season as well as a good chunk of the third. So I binged for several weeks and caught up, and was sufficiently rooted into the fandom by the end of it. I watched the rest of the show as it aired, and… well. Here we are.

Age Study: Merlin
Several weeks ago I drew an age study of Hiccup, and I had such fun with it I decided do the same thing with Merlin. (I am not going into withdrawals I swear) So, here we have our dearest warlock  at ages 13, 19, 24, 33, and 78.

((If I bring back old doodles that I’m still kinda proud of is that conceitedness?))

➸ Ranger’s Apprentice AU: Horace and Will investigate something supernatural.

Alright. Seriously? Unacceptable.
Not only does this art not belong to OP, it is not Ranger’s Apprentice fanart at all, AU notwithstanding. It is rather clear by the faces alone that it is Merlin fanart, and you would’ve been able to tell had the “MERLIN” not been edited out from the top of the piece.

I expected classier things from you, RA fandom.

Last monotype in class today! Additive method this time (thank the Lord) aaaaaaand I did Merlin because why not? I usually don’t post my serious art online, but this is fanart, so I figured what the heck?

Another piece I’ve done for Let’s Draw Merlin! The theme for this latest round: Old Endings & New Beginnings! Those last two words made me think of children… So I give you a different ending (out with the old) in which Arthur and Gwen both live happily ever after and have beautiful babies - who, naturally, adore their “Uncle” Merlin! Now, wouldn’t a Court Sorcerer make a brilliant babysitter? Instead of hearing another bedtime story, they’d get to see more magic tricks! <3 (My Art Tag)

Just realized I never reblogged this.

You know, I’m having a hard time deciding if Merlin is a complete dork or somehow imposing in this, so I’m just going to say that he’s a dork who’s goofing off and ends up strangely successful.

You pull of everyone’s characters perfectly, as per usual. I know Mithian only has a few episodes in the whole show, but she is quite the personality despite, and you’ve gotten her down well.

The whole Merthian ship totally took me off guard in the show, because while she is minor character, and I’m no hardcore shipper or anything, there is undoubtedly chemistry there, and watching them flirt makes me snort and giggle because dorks.


This is lovely, thank you so much, m’dear!

virile and manly *ridiculous snort*

My dash has conspired against me and now I’m drowning in Merlin feels all over again
