Merlin Cast Fest
Bradley James Week - Day 1 (Bradley and Football)
I swear I’m going to rescue my men…or die trying.
They’re more than friends, more than brothers.

This scene was so important. Arthur spent the entire episode saying he could rule alone, that he didn’t need anyone. And then here, at the very end, when he was going to his potential death, he finally swallowed his pride, took Merlin’s hand and literally thanked his oldest friend for everything.
Ladies, I am holding out my hand. Do you trust me?
I need you to open Google Maps. Locate your nearest mall. Get in your car. Drive to Yankee Candle.
Past the seasonal pumpkin display, near the back of the store, you will find a trash pile Man Candle section. You will see candles called MMM, Bacon!. Riding Mower. Man Town. (I’m not kidding. Man Town.) Stay strong. Not in this section, but likely very near this section, you will find a candle called Mountain Lodge.
Hold this jar in your hands like a talisman. Close your eyes and picture a man.
I want to be clear: I’m not talking about a Hugh Dancy. Or an Andrew Garfield, a Ben Whishaw, even a Tom Hiddleston. This exercise requires someone in the Chris Evans weight class. The Richard Armitage department. Someone with smile lines around his eyes who could chop the cedar for your bower with his own hands, strangle an alpha wolf, carry you home when you sprain your ankle in the woods, bench press your entire body. Picture this man in your mountain home with a full beard, a slightly grimy white henley, a fond half smile he reserves only for you. Now open the lid and smell Mountain Lodge.
Steady yourself on the man candle display. Give yourself a second. No, you’re not wrong. Yes, the Yankee Candle Company has just eliminated the need for men. This medium tumbler Mountain Lodge candle jar is now your boyfriend. The Yankee Candle Company has effectively replaced the need for contact with the male half of our species with a compact and clean-burning candle in a jar.
"Do you like this one?" the cashier asked, ringing me up. "Every man should be required by law to smell like what this candle smells like," I replied intensely. "That’ll be $12.01," she said.
Fun fact! The indignant English bartender in this scene is the same actor who played tiny Steve.
i wanna be a reverse tooth fairy where i rob people and then scatter human teeth on their bed
i dont know what your dentist is doing to you but i think you need to go to the police
"Don’t worry, I’ll tell you when he does."
Today’s warmup for morriganfearn who meme’d me on my main account for Merlin and a friend. Don’t you two have chores to be doing??
I’m a screw up. And I plan to be a screw up until my late twenties, maybe even my early thirties.
In conclusion: Arthur is a drama queen, Uther isn’t that bad and Arthur gave Merlin some of the t-shirts he’d grown out of.
