Oh haaiii it’s another Merlin piece — I can’t help but feel a bit guilty! It’s simple with Merlin cos I’m in the fandom, but with other shows, I have to mull over the character until I find something that I can latch onto and use to make the piece memorable. But I think I’ve finally got something! *fist pump* For next week. Meanwhile, let me tell you about how Merlin came to be the silent guardian of Camelot…

After the Battle of Camlann, Merlin disappears into the woods without a trace. When Aithusa finds him, he is slumped against a fallen oak with vines and leaves growing over and around his still body. His eyes have lost their blue from having to live off of magic while slowly losing his humanity in the process*, and his hair has long turned snow white from grief. But slowly, determinedly… Aithusa nurses Merlin back to health, and together they look after each other and Camelot.

Since then, travelers passing though the woods would tell of a strange ball of blue light, or the small raven that lead them back to the right path. There are stories of a funny old man who offers food and shelter for the night, and his hovel that disappears at sunrise. There is the boy that magically appears out of nowhere, who would keep children calm and entertained with clever little tricks until their parents came for them. Even rarer are the encounters with a croaky old woman whose remedies never failed to aid those truly in need of them.

Merlin lets the rumors spread far and wide because they help in their cause. Already bandits and mercenaries dare not come near Emrys’ woods. "For the enemies of Camelot, there are only curses and imminent demise.” To this day, legend tells of the Ghost Guardian and his Dragon of Mistforever roaming the woods, always watching, waiting for the return of the Once and Future King.

I’ve been wandering through this world, looking for the love that might free me.

A/N: (Title’s from Gungor‘s song “Wandering”)

Good lord I couldn’t believe I finished it, finally. Once I thought it would be a WIP forever. *weeping* I went about doing this right after the finale of s5 ruined my Christmas. Everything went smoothly until I realized I couldn’t find a better way to portray what I wanted to present. Then…somehow I just got stuck in the process, losing all the enthusiasm for it. Until lately. I picked it up again by chance, and decided to have a try once more. 

Alright, the concept of this set of paintings is a warlock wandering around the world looking for his king, from winter to summer, from the medieval era to the modern times. I’m sorry if it sucks :( It’s all my bad. Also, all the comment, idea and advice are highly welcomed. :D

Hello all, So i think you may remember that this blog hosted Mergana Prmopt Party a while back and now I wanna try doing something a little different. 

I’ve noticed a significant lack of Mergana on my dash and its a shame cuztheyre my OTP so I thought it’d be great to have a whole month that would just acknowledge their awesomeness.

This appreciation month would go from October 1st - 31st. and there would be 5 prompts per week. you wouldn’t have to do them all or anything maybe like one a week or something whatever floats your boat

All types of creations are allowed and encouraged. I will post al lthe prompts for all 5 weeks (first week is shorter) sometime in the middle of this month so please bbe sure to follow this blog or track the tag merganamonth 

if you’re interested please reblog this post and spread the word, thank you

Art for “A summer in Delphi”, by the mighty Rotrude - for After Camlann Big Bang 2014

The only problem when one of your favourite writers accepts to collab with you for Merlin Big Bang, is that you never feel you’re good enough to do her writing justice…

Working with Rotrude has been a dream, and I’ll never find the good words to describe what a wonderful person she is. Not only is she super talented, but she is also kind and clever and always supportive.

Now, everybody MUST read the fic ! It’s so beautifully written, so moving, and the characters sound so human, and so true. It will last with you for a long time.

My subjective Merlin Fan Art Recommendations

I look for Merlin art that evokes some emotion, demonstrates skill, and doesn't appear mostly traced or painted over another original. I will ALWAYS point back to the source/artist.

I don't post art that has been traced, no matter how good it is. I have a good folder of stock images that are often used.

I do not take credit for these. I'm just an art connoisseur/patron! I haven't posted any of my art here for a year (I didn't want to think I started this for self-promotion) so none are mine.

TELL ME:
- I do take recs! You can submit art here. Only selected art will be posted.
- I will take down any art by request of the artist.
- I will change preferred source link by request of the artist.
- If any piece is misrepresented, copied or stolen please let me know asap. This is a zero-tolerance of art theft blog!
- This also means I will no longer post fanart that has been commissioned for money. You have no legal right to profit from work featuring characters without permission from copyright holder.

Also on Twitter!
