Hi! You saw "Mojo" yesterday, right? Can I ask you what you thought of Colin Morgan's performance? Thanks!

yes you can! his performance was actually seamless. he played his character, skinny, like someone trapped between childhood and adulthood. like a kid, he was constantly trying to get approval of the people around him (especially his boss, mickey). and he copied ben whishaw’s character in most things (the blue trousers!). even though i think baby scared him more than anything, there was still admiration there. he was just trying to fit in, for the most part, but he was still talked down to and pushed aside most of the time. but there was also a very gritty, quick-thinking and almost wise element to the character. he understood a lot of what was going on before anyone else did, and colin was really in tune with all these aspects. he played into them very well. and really, there were zero mistakes. or, if there were, i didn’t catch them. every line was flawless. his comedic timing was on point, and i cried when he cried and - don’t want to give away spoilers - but every choice he made was really believable.

and i got distracted watching him most of the time. even when someone else was center stage, he didn’t break character for a second, and i couldn’t take my eyes off him. it was fascinating watching the intricate little things he did in those moments. he was so captivating.

and his accent was awesome! at times, i heard hints of the northern irish accent. and, sometimes, it reminded me of the accent he did for merlin, but it was different, too. he sounded, to me at least, like a londoner more than anything. so, kudos for that.

and, as i said before, you could just see him transform from skinny to colin when he took his bows. he was so full of energy and had a great stage presence, but he let that slip when he bowed and he did look tired while doing it. so it’s a real testimony to his acting that he could be so exhausted and still be so full of life while in character.

honestly, there’s nothing like seeing him do his thing in person. he’s just an extraordinary actor. i’m so happy i got the opportunity to see him live.

Helen's Tumblr Valentines

I’m having the most wonderful Valentine’s Day, but it wouldn’t be complete without some love for all my tumblr friends. It’s only been two months since I’ve joined tumblr, but some of you are the best people I’ve ever known. I don’t know all of your names, and you may not know me, but I wanted to share these flowers with you (they’re really sitting in my kitchen! so lovely I had to attempt to photograph them), and a little appreciation for the happiness I’ve gotten from you/your blogs. :D

In no particular order: 

theglamorousfrog: yours was actually the very first tumblr I ever found, and I used to email so many of your posts to my sister back before I got a tumblr. Now I just reblog them! :)

colinmorganismagical: you’re so positive and such a dedicated Colin fan, I love your blog and if ever anyone asked why I love Colin, I’d just direct them to your blog!

lilybells: your merlin chibi are the cutest thing I have ever seen, and I literally can’t work without little Merlin and Arthur running around my desktop! 

omggalina: you always find the rarest photos of Colin! Thank you so much for finding and posting them, I’d never see all that lovely otherwise! 

mamalaz: your au gifsets are the best thing ever. Basically you recreate every Merlin fanfic I have ever loved. You’ve gotten me converted from a lover of words to pictures, singlehandedly. Whenever I read a great fic, I’m like, “I wonder if Mamalaz did a gifset like this?” :) 

colinmorganshair: we’re on a slippery slope towards definite death in our obsession for Colin’s chapstick, but I am so happy to be on this journey with you! ;)

merlins-earmuffs: you’re such a diligent chronicler of everything Colin Morgan, and I can always count on a quick visit to your blog to catch me up on anything I’ve missed! (Well, it can’t be quick, I usually spend far longer there than I intend, but you get the idea!)

downundermagic: I love reading your unique captions on the Merlin photos you capture from all angles! The set of Merlin “weekend sleeping” still makes me giggle.

narlth: I seriously love the fact you get to attend so many Colin-related events, because I know you can be relied on to give the rest of us a great account afterwards! Thank you for so unselfishly sharing those moments with us :)

rocknvaughn: You indeed rock just like your name says! I’m seriously amazed at your memory for anything-Colin, and also your voice of wisdom in the fandom! 

lonelytwoleggedcreatures: One word: EDITS. Omg, you are so good at all forms of that - photos, gifs, recolors, I can’t believe the things you make! It was a serious pinch-me moment when you gif-ed my post! 

darasmithville: Another blog I come to when I’m in want of the most gorgeous edits and photos. Seriously, how are you people real??

totallycorrectmerlinquotes: yours is pretty much my go-to blog when I need a laugh. They’re ALL SO GOOD. 

colinmorfan: Your Colin Calendar is the best! New Colin everyday is a necessity and I get that from your blog. :D

colinsvoice: I love your dedication to Colin’s voice and everything related! I also loved the video you made of Colin’s 2014 appearances and I’m still waiting for the full version, it was PERFECT (and the zoom on shirtless sleeping Colin on “Make me your Aphrodite”… priceless!) 

pixie-morgan: I smile every time I see one of your posts. Every. time. Not even kidding, I don’t even think I do it consciously, because I’m not familiar enough with your blog yet to recognize your style (need to fix this asap). But every time I’ve smiled at a post, I look at the name and do you know how many times it is yours?!? Unbelievable. 

scootergirl913: Saxony, you are a little ball of love and fluff. You’re the sweetest person imaginable, always there when I’m in need of a bit of cheer, and also SO similar to me! (tumblr-twin?) 

hessofluffyyy: Alex. Alex, Alex, Alex. You’re amazing. I’m so thankful Ack, I even saved you for last but I still can’t find words to describe how much I love you! Maybe… to me, Alex is a four-letter synonym for love? (That was terrible, I should write cheesy greeting cards, I’d be so good at it!) 

Happy Valentine’s Day all! Also, much love to all the other wonderful people I follow but haven’t had time to get to know better yet, to all my followers, the incredibly undying Merlin fandom, and the ameezin’ Colin Morgan fandom! Hope you all have a lovely day <3

Hi! I read you got to see Colin Morgan. That's so great! Was it during his performance in The Tempest at The Globe? Have you photos of him to share, please? Thank you!

Hi there!

I did get to see him in The Tempest as Ariel (who’s my favorite character in the show, and this is also my favorite Shakespeare play, by the way.) I hadn’t checked the cast and didn’t realize he’d be in it until he came out on stage and I silently FREAKED OUT. I wasn’t supposed to take pictures… but I did :3 Which is why there’s often some wall at the bottom of the pictures, because I was just peeking the camera over the edge.

And a bonus blurry one of him running off stage:

Sorry I couldn’t get better ones, I was at the side of the stage and, again, I was hiding the fact that I was taking them. Enjoy!

colinmorganismagical  asked:

Hi! About the "honey story". In a review it was said that someone asked Colin if they could hug him and Colin smiled and responded: "Sorry I'm not a huggy person." Someone also offered him a jar of peanup butter and someone else a jar of honey. Colin accepted them both very politely. He was also offered some other things and got letters that he took with gratitude, thanking with huge smiles the persons who gave him those presents. And I'll take this opportunity to thank you for your Colin posts.

Hello! Okay, seems like there just was a misunderstanding and mishearing, then. Thank you very much for clearing it up!

Also my apologies for spearing incorrect information.

And thank you dear haha mostly I’m just publishing other people’s asks though, am I not.

colinmorganismagical said:

We all voted for Colin Morgan in the Best Actor in a Play” Category… Almost no one voted for him in the supporting actor category! That’s why he didn’t get to be nominated! That’s a shame…

The voting system was a little confusing yes, but it was close.

Colin will have his time to shine in the future, don’t worry, and I’m happy he’s doing so well ;-)

And I’m happy for Daniel Mays, Ben Whishaw and Ruper Grint because they were all brilliant. The whole cast is. Well deserved, and good luck to them.

1. Favorite historic character?

Robin Hood (even if he was just a legend!)

2. If you could time travel, what age would do you choose?

Id love to go to prehistoric times to see Dinosaurs

3. How would you like to be remembered?

As just a young woman who had a big heart, to be remembered for me and not for something I create.

4. Favorite thing you own?

A painting of Colin Morgan as ‘Ariel’.  I didn’t even have to pay for it, the lady online agreed to paint it for me for free and she sent it to me. I am incredibly lucky to own it.

5. A song that brings you good memories/feelings

For some reason its Shakira 'Underneath Your Clothes’ because I remember being with my mum and sister on the beach in the summer and it started raining so we had to rush back to the car, I had no shoes on and I was running in the rain and it felt so refreshing and so fun and that music was playing on the radio when I got in the car.

6. If you could meet anyone in the word, who would you choose?

Without a doubt Colin Morgan.  He is my favourite actor, he’s so incredibly talented and I love everything he has done.  He makes me smile when nothing else can and seems a genuinely humble guy and I wish I could have the chance to meet him.

7. Favorite Harry Potter character?

I loved Neville Longbottom and Gilderoy Lockhart but I think my favourite is Dumbledore.  I have a soft spot for wise old wizards ;)

8. Who inspires you?

My favourite author Khaled Hosseini inspires me to write because his stories and characters are so beautifully crafted.  Colin Morgan also inspires me to try and be the best of who I am in life and do what I love.

9. Your all-time OTP?

Merlin & Arthur.  On every level, friendship whatever, they were soulmates, two people made for each other, two people that changed and moulded each other into the best they could be, two people who started off as enemies and became the best friends just because of who they were when they were with each other.  The most beautiful story hands down.

10. Do you have a favorite super hero?

Superman is pretty cool ;)

Hi, I really enjoy your flailing about Colin Morgan. He's exceptionally talented and uniquely gorgeous. Your tumblr along with ColinMorganisMagical are my favorite stops. I have noticed that most of his fans tend to treat him like a cross between a favored pet and a sex toy, which I suppose is the language of fandom. What strikes me the most about him, though, other than his talent, is how professionally savvy, determined, and ambitious he is.

Hello unidentified very important person, first of all, OMFG!, thank you so much for your comment, it made my day like 10x better, especially since ColinMorganIsMagical is my favorite stop also.
Secondly, if anyone on this planet were to be conflicted about who to fangirl/boy over, I would tell them to go for Colin, he will never disappoint. I don’t know, there’s just something about him that just draws you in and doesn’t let go. For me it was his acting, his fucking acting, which is flawless; how he can just BECOME all these different characters I’ll never understand. Then it’s his commitment to what he loves doing that truly inspired me, he made me chase better things and do better in general. Of course, I occassionaly indulge myself in his gorgeousness, I mean, who could blame me? Enough blabber, ok, bye!

Hi. When did you watch Colin Morgan in "The Tempest"? Was Colin as superb as I imagine him being on that stage? Thank you for answering.

wow I’m so sorry my inbox just now decided to let me know I had an ask eeeps!

Colin was absolutely amazing in the Tempest! It’s one of my favorite Shakespeare plays, so I’ve seen many versions of Ariel, and Colin really managed to shape the character into something fresh and different while still keeping true to the script :) He was jumping all around the stage and on monkey bars, he seemed so ethereal, and he sang nicely, even though he had a cold at the time.

The Globe Theater is going to be releasing the performance of the Tempest on DVD in early 2014, so you’ll definitely get a chance to see the performance still!

OK, first of all, this was sitting in my inbox for a while… I don’t even know if everyone’s still playing this game of not. 

Thank you, what-do-the-stars-hide, for tagging me! 

Now I should answer the questions…

1. Favourite tv show: Merlin, by far. It’s probably unreasonable how much of my thoughts this show occupies. 

2. Favourite movie: I have a whole bunch, but I can never think of them until they’re right in front of me. I like Pixar animations (Finding Nemo, Bolt, Robots, Megamind, Monsters Inc). Um, I like Accepted. I know I have more. I swear I do……

3. If you could live in any time you choose, wich would it be and why: See, I like to think I would say medieval times, or possibly like 17th century France or something, or any time period with elaborate dresses and corsets and stuff cuz I love those, but I’m pretty sure I would die without A/C and indoor plumbing. So…..

4. Do you believe in destiny?: Not really, no. Not in real life anyway.

5. Future profession: Not a damn clue. Ideally, if I could, I would either be in a big professional choir or be a backup singer for someone famous. Alas, neither of these seems quite in the cards. So I might end up an insurance agent like my mother and sister. Idk. Sigh. I don’t like to think of future stuff.

6. if you had to choose only one type of food and one type of dessert to eat for the rest of your life, what would you choose?: Kraft macaroni and cheese (which I eat at least 4 times a week as it is anyway….) and butter streusal coffee cake (if that counts as a dessert instead of a breakfast food. If not, then Otis Spunkenmeyer chocolate chocolate muffins.).

7. The most painful death in a tv show: I don’t even know, man. There were a hell of a lot of really painful deaths in Merlin. It’s probably a tie between Freya, Balinor, and Arthur. If we’re going by just sheer pain and shock that they would actually do that and be that cruel. (Although Gwaine’s is a very close second.)

8. Wich is the best sherlock? Robert or Benedict?: Benedict. I’m pretty sure I saw RDJ’s movies, but I don’t actually remember them….

9. Favourite Disney princess: Um. Belle, maybe. But I kinda love Anna and Rapunzel too. Belle’s the one I’m probably most like, but Anna’s songs are perfect in my range and I love them. Rapunzel’s just precious.

10: Most annoying Disney princess: I’m not fond of the early disney princesses, like Snow White and Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, but that’s more of a time period thing. They’re just old fashioned.

11. A fictional place you really wish was real: Is it cliche to see Hogwarts? Cuz Hogwarts.

Now, my questions:

1. What fictional character do you identify with the most?

2. What’s the story behind your very first url?

3. What country are you from/currently in?

4. Are you right or left handed?

5. If you were going into battle, what weapon would you choose?

6. If you could die your hair any other color permanently, what would it be?

7. What’s your favorite article of clothing?

8. Have you ever been in a musical or a play?

9. Can you read music?

10. What’s your favorite flower?

11. Who is your celebrity crush and why?
