I'm glad you're here, Merlin...

So as I mentioned in my last entry, I'm going to share a little picspam with you. The topic is of course Merlin related, since I'm madly in love with this show, the cast and the fandom in general. I thought I could make my first real picspam about Arthur and Merlin and their wonderful relationship. I've chosen my 7 favorite serious/touching/moving moments of them. Most likely I'll make "a funny/hilarious/cute moments picspam" of them in the near future too, since I really enjoyed to make this one here. So I truly hope you'll like and have fun looking at the lovely pictures. =)

Episode 1.02 - Valiant
Already in the second episode of the first series they shared a honest and touching moment that made you love their realationship right away. The honesty and truthfulness of this scene is just wonderful.

Merlin: "I know I'm just a servant and my word doesn't count for anything. I wouldn't lie to you."
Arthur: "I want you to swear to me what you're telling me is true."
Merlin: "I swear it's true."
Arthur: "Then I believe you."

Episode 1.04 - The Poisoned Chalice
This episode is full of great Arthur/Merlin moments, so it was hard to chose and in the end I still included two scenes of this ep in my picspam. I mean just look at it. They are willing to die for each-other.

Artur: Merlin, apologise. This is a mistake. I'll drink it.
Merlin: No, no, no. It's all right.

Episode 1.04 - The Poisoned Chalice
This moment is again so earnest and full of true concern and care. Their faces say so much and show their feelings wonderfully. These boys. *sighs* They are so precious.

Arthur: Still alive then?
Merlin: Yeah, just about. I understand I have you to thank for that.
Arthur: Yeah, well, it was nothing. A half-decent servant is hard to come by. I was only dropping by to make sure you were alright. Check that you'll be back to work tomorrow.
Merlin: Oh, yeah, yeah. Of course. Bright and early. Arthur... thank you.
Arthur: You too. Get some rest.

Episode 1.11 - The Labyrinth of Gedref
My favorite episode of the first series and this is my absolute favorite moment of this ep. Again they are willing to die for each-other to save the life of the other one. Also it's the first time Arthur admits that he's glad about Merlin being with him. Everything about this scene is perfect. Absolute perfection. (That's also the reason why it gets two exra caps. ;D)

Arthur: I had no idea you were so keen to die for me.
Merlin: Trust me, I can hardly believe it myself.
Arthur: I'm glad you're here, Merlin.
Merlin: I've got it! We pour all the liquid into one goblet and then we can be sure it's poisoned. Then all the liquid can be drunk, and from a single goblet.
Arthur: You never cease to surprise me. You are a lot smarter than you look.
Merlin: Is that actually a compliment?

Episode 2.06 - Beauty and the Beast: Part Two
Although the Troll episodes aren't really my favorite episodes, to be honest they are rather the opposite, I still think that this very moment was just lovely and showed how much Arthur cared for Merlin. Especially Arthur's look/expression in the last cap shows all the anxiousness and love for Merlin. Altogether just a complete "awww-moment"

Arthur: You need to get out of here. The King's ordered me to arrest you.
Merlin: What?
Arthur: Catrina's accused you of taking her seal.
Merlin: But I didn't.
Arthur: I don't want to know and you haven't got time to explain. If you value your life, you'll leave Camelot right now.
Merlin: But... she is a troll. She's trying to set me up.
Arthur: We've been through this.
Merlin: I'm telling the truth. I saw her.
(Knock at the door)
Arthur: I don't care. You need to leave, Merlin.
(Knock at the door) Sire?
Arthur: Go. Go

Episode 2.08 - The Sins of the Father
I think this scene is my favorite touching Arthur/Merlin moment of series two. Close behind is the one of 2.13. The reason why I like this one a tiny bit more is how they connect with each-other in this moment. They get to know each-other better and recognize what they have in common. They understand each-other and as I already said connect in a much deeper way than ever before. Also the fact that Bradley and Colin shot this in just one single take is incredible. Amazing acting.

Merlin: What was your mother like?
Arthur: I never knew her. She died before I opened my eyes.
Merlin: I'm sorry.
Arthur: I barely know anything about her.
Merlin: Can't you ask your father?
Arthur: He refuses to talk of her. It must be too painful for him. Sometimes it's as if she never even existed. I still have... a sense of her, almost as though she is part of me.
Merlin: It's the same… with my father, I never knew him. And my mother has barely spoken of him. I've got this... vague memory. It's probably just my imagination.
Arthur: I'd do anything for even the vaguest memory.
Merlin: Is that why you're so determined to find Morgause, to see what she knows about your mother?
Arthur: Is that so wrong?
Merlin: No.

Episode 2.13 - The Last Dragonlord
This is just an epic moment and that means something coming from me. I rarely use the word "epic", so it say something about this moment. Just everything about it is truly "wow". Starting with the beautiful lightening for instance. Great work of the director of photography. But moving on to the actors. Colin and Bradley did an amazing job. Their faces tell even more than the dialog. The deep friendship and love is omnipresent. Please give us more of these scene in season 3. I really hope for it.

Arthur: Merlin, if I die... please...
Merlin: What?
Arthur: The Dragonlord today. I saw you. One thing I tell all my young Knights... no man is worth your tears.
Merlin: (Teasingly) Yeah. You're certainly not.
Arthur: What are you doing?
Merlin: I'm coming with you.
Arthur: Merlin, the chances are I'm going to die.
Merlin: Yeah, you probably would if I wasn't there.
Arthur: Right!
Merlin: Do you know how many times I had to save your Royal backside?
Arthur: Well, at least you've got your sense of humour back. Are you really going to face this dragon with me?
Merlin: I'm not going to sit here and watch. I know it's hard for you to understand how I feel, but... well, I care a hell of a lot about that armour. I'm not going to let you mess it up.

And that's already the end.
I hope you enjoyed my first picspam and I would be really glad if you leave a comment. Also I would like to know if you want to see more picspams from me in the future. Your suggestions and ideas always mean a lot to me, so don't hesitate and comment. Oh and please don't repost the graphics anywhere. Especially not over at tumblr. Thank you. =)
