"It's... lonely. To be more powerful than any man you know, and have to live like a shadow. To be special, and have to pretend you're a fool."
I LOVE MERLIN! Sorry, I got a bit excited with the capital letters and such. I seriously have a whole board devoted to it on Pinterest. :) It's called "Oh my, Merlin!" and pretty cool.
The BBC's production of Merlin is incredible! It's not about an old Merlin, but about a young man who enters Camelot in a time where magic is banned. He's a warlock with a great destiny, but he doesn't quite know it yet. Merlin discovers his destiny from a dragon, kept beneath the palace, who is very wise. Merlin can't believe it. He's supposed to create a new Albion with the spoiled Prince Arthur who puts him in the stocks after the first time they meet? No way. Merlin becomes Arthur's man servant after he saves Arthur's life and the two have such an awesome bromance! It's a wonderful show and family friendly, which I love. There's no sex scenes and it is clean language. I cannot express how much I love this show!
Here's the trailer from season one to entice you:
And if that doesn't entice you, try this:
One of the greatest shows on television! Just no one spoil the ending for me - I haven't had a chance to see the final season yet! It aired in the UK and I just haven't taken the time to find the ending on the internet.
Have you discovered the magic of "Merlin"? If not, you have to!

I wrote 3,315 words on Saturday! Definitely a successful writing day! It was the NaNoThon - NaNoWriMo Marathon, with donations and lots of writing. I'm glad I got some much done. I made my character Lainey fall in love and in the same day, I made her heart break. Yeah, I do feel a bit awful about that one. :) I only wrote 63 words on Sunday, but I'm totally okay with that. How did your weekend of writing go?
