1. The first character I first fell in love with
That has to be Merlin. I think I was sold on him the minute he appeared on my screen, and as he is the first thing to appear in the first episode.. also he’s adorkable, especially in the first series, how can you not love him? :)
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now
I think Parcival? I was kinda indifferent to this dude in season 3, but over the course of season 4 he really grew on me. :’) (Most of the other characters I fell in love with on first sight [e.g. Morgana, Gwaine, Lancelot] so they don’t count.)
3. The character everyone else loves that I don’t
I think I love pretty much everyone safe for Uther and Agravaine, and I don’t think they’re very liked by the fandom?
4. The character I love that everyone else hates
Though a little disappointed by her development, I fell in love with Gwen in the first series and I kinda love her still (though S1!Gwen is def the best imo).
5. The character I used to love but don’t any longer
Is there such a character? Though I’m kinda sad Gwaine’s part was reduced to comic relief in series 4.. and I’m sad that Morgana seems to go ~all evil without proper development on screen. (But it’s Morgana, one of my favourite characters of all time, so I kinda still love her. Sigh!)
6. The character I would totally smooch
..Morgana. Especially S1 or S2!Morgana. Or Lancelot.
7. The character I’d want to be like
I can be badass and magical like Morgana, please? Also the pretty dresses from the earlier seasons would be nice to own..
8. The character I’d slap
Uther. The bloody Goblin. Arthur… the boy’s too bloody oblivious. Someone needs to shake some common sense into him!! And then the magic wouldn’t be secret anymore and we can finally move on in the series, wouldn’t that be great?
9. A pairing that I love
Merlin/Morgana. Alternatively, Gwen/Lancelot and Morgana/Morgause.
10. A pairing that I despise
I don’t despise any pairing per se but more development for Arthur/Gwen really couldn’t hurt..
