Okay, so I'm writing so very thought-out, informative &/or fun blogs. But, in the mean time, here is a less serious blog of some videos that can serve as a teaser to two of the blogs I'm working on (one explores the Merlin/Arthur dynamic and analyses why there are Merthur shippers, one is a collection of my favorite fanart, fanfiction, and fanvids).
Warning: Some of the following may be a tad mature in nature, language, or theme and all contain implications of slash. However, none would be rated above PG-13, in my opinion. Watch at your own descretion.
So, what is you favorite Merlin fanvid? Post it below!…

(blog originally writen 21 June 2012... I was late posting it... oops!)
Yesterday, 20 June 2012, was the Summer Solstice of the Northern Hemispere. The day of the Summer Solstice is the day of the year during which the sun is in the sky for the longest period of time. Since before the beginning of the Christian faith, the Summer Solstice has been celebrated as a sacred day in countries around the globe. Many equate the day with fertility and the festivals, traditions, and rituals associated with the Solstice are celebrations dedicated to goddesses and gods of fertility (though masculine fertility dieties are rare) and to the pursuit of health, discernment, and good fortune.

When I was getting my BA degree, I had a professoor who is an expert on Arthuriann lliterature and film. A few years ago, I took a course with him called Arthurian Legends and have sent him videos and articles on the subject we both love. Recently, I sent him this:
"Hello sir! I found this neat video on the Arthurian Legends as researched by Colin Morgan and Bradley James (the actors who play Merlin and Arthur, respectively, in the BBC hit show Merlin) and I thought you might enjoy it! In the entirety, it is about 30 minutes long.

Merry meet, fellow fans of Merlin! I go by Sybil. I am a Transcendentalist, which is a bit like a Universalist and a bit like a Wiccan. I have spent my life in the study of my faith and the powers the Great One, the Father and Mother of All, placed within all of creation, and before I abandoned my duties to go to college, my Circle looked to me as a Priestess-in-training. However, I am still a very modern girl. I am nearly 22 years of age and have recently graduated from college in America. My Circle has welcomed me back, despite my denying my duty to be a Priestess. I will prove that my destiny leads down another path. In school, I double-majored in Theater and English, with an Emphasis in Creative Writing. My focuses were on play…Read more >
