Fly-by Merlin gif  
Had to gif one of my favorite scenes from Merlin this week.  Its got some serious man!pain and it screamed that it needed to be done.  I liked the episode pretty well overall with only a few things that bugged me.  Anyone else think Gwen/Arthur scene was kind of ... forced?  And when is Merlin gonna learn to quit messing with stuff?  The first 10 minutes or so?  Tell me I'm not the only one who picked up on all the heaving breathing and unf?  

Anyway, here's one of my favorite moments from this week's episode.  Arthur pissed off and hurting is totally hot and Merlin all mopey and sad is also hot.  They did a great job showing the man!pain.

I'll look at that scene when I get home. As long as they have no mouth movement then it's a go. Drives me nuts to see vids or gifs with mouth movement. I wanted to gif that scene with Arthur playing with this ring but he won't stop talking during it.

Ooooh yes! That's a good one. You are talking about this scene, right?

I'll start on it tonight.

*also butts in* AND AND AND. That shot of Merlin's face after he screamed up at the dragon something like... "I AM THE DRAGONLORD, DO NOT FUCK WITH ME, LIZARD.".... or. Whatever he said that was the gist, yes? and THEN. THEN HE GAVE HIM THAT HOTASS LOOK AND SAID, "I COMMAND YOU" AND THAT LITTLE TILT OF HIS HEAD AND HIS EYYYYYYES holy Lord. That right there. *bats eyelashes*

I just looked at that scene again and I can do it right after he says 'I am the dragonlord' but I don't want to get him screaming because you cannot tell what all he's saying. But you can tell when he says 'I command you' so I'll include it. I don't like mouth movement unless it's clear what they mean. Ya know, like the gif I made of Clark saying 'Hell Yes' at his wedding to Alicia?

I'll cap and gif it for you when I get home.

\o/ You're so sweet!!! Thank you so much, seriously. You graphics and media talented people just inspire me!

Also, may I put the gif in my LJ today if I properly credit you? I saw the entry itself was locked, so I didn't want to step on toes and just link to the entry.
netlynnnetlynn on October 11th, 2010 12:21 pm (UTC)
It's no trouble at all. Besides, I get to look at Bradley frame by frame while capping them so it just gives me a reason to lust that much more. ;)

I certainly don't mind if you want to post the gif and either way you want to do it is fine with me. I can unlock the entry or you can post it yourself. I'm in a terrible habit of locking everything but there's nothing RL related in this post so it doesn't matter.

Thank you for wanting to share with others. I have only a handful of people on my flist who watch Merlin so it's good that others get to see it.

How about if I post it and link back to you? I love giving credit where credit is due. :D

You poor baby, taking one for the team and staring at Bradley James for god only knows how long. Such sacrifices of the brave few! \o/

That's perfectly fine with me. I did unlock the post so it's good to go.

It's a hard job but somebody has to do it, right? Even better that I get to do it. LOL

I get what they were trying to do but I still don't think it worked. I wish they wrote Gwen's character a bit more for the role she'll eventually play but right now, she seems kind of forced to me. And? Morgana has treated her like shit ever since she's come back - I wouldn't shed a tear for her atm.

Man!pain with the wet!boyz was definitely hawt.

Here's to hoping Merlin learned his lesson - even the dragon gets tired of his gullible nature.

She's totally becoming the Lana Lang of Smallville - it's like she's Arthur's girl and that's it. No real purpose other than the emo!ansty romance angle. (Please to be not killing me for making the comparison, but that's how I always saw Lana.) Hopefully we'll see some more Gwen this season!

I have to agree with this. It worries me that they've made Gwen's becoming story into how Arthur someday makes her queen, rather than how she earns becoming queen and her spot in Arthur's heart. Last season they botched things by moving them too fast. S1 Gwen seemed to be a voice for the people of Camelot, and I would love it if they would show her advocating for the faceless masses of the kingdom that Uther dismisses and Arthur sometimes forgets unless he's under great princely duress. We could see Arthur coming to love her for that and for the people coming to love her for it, so that there would be rejoicing when he married her, by everyone.

But no. She's reduced to The Love Interest and I just don't get behind Gwen/Arthur like I can Gwen/Lancelot. They even pissed me off last season with that, because Lancelot decided what was best FOR Gwen and snuck out. She's the least powerful person on the show. Don't take even more power away from her by taking away her basic right to choose who to love.

*cracks up* Dude, you know I'm always gonna love Clana but that doesn't mean I wasn't severely disappointed in their story lines. That show pissed me off more times than I can count with those two but I still say those two had THE best chemistry together and were just a hot couple.

I agree with the Gwen assessment though, they need to do something to turn her character around quickly, before I cannot stand her.

LOL re the dragon smackdown. I laughed this morning when I was skimming over that scene that Lauren wanted a gif of and I didn't remember him saying 'OH Merlin, will you ever learn? Um, I'm guessing not for a while.

*hugs you* Finally feeling better, thank goodness. That crap was on my nerves.
