Welcome to a blog for confessions about the BBC show Merlin. We are aware that there already is a confessions blog for Merlin, but we decided that we wanted to have a go at making one of our own.
Please check out the rules for submitting a confession and start sending them!
THIS BLOG IS ON HIATUS.
It angers me how much hate Morgana/Gwen femslashers get, when most of them are lesbians. On the other hand, the same haters go on and on about Merlin/Arthur queerbaiting. I cannot stand the double standards.
I really hate it when people claim to ship certain pairings, when really it’s just a thinly veiled attempt of pairing up an obstacle to their OTP with someone else. It makes me feel bad for the people who started legitimately shipping pairings like Gwencelot, Morwen, and Mergana for reasons other than preserving Merthur/Arwen. And no, my Merlin OTP is neither Merthur, Arwen, or any of the other ships I mentioned.
When Morgana returned in S3, I wanted her to convince Gwen to come to her side. Instead, all she did was make assumptions and turned on her loyal companion. I also found her very hypocritical in 3x13, when she expected loyalty from Gwen, when all she did in season 3 was use Gwen for her own revenge. This is why she doesn’t appeal to me anymore.
