merlin's father figure

  • Gaius: Nice work.
  • Merlin: Thanks, Dad.
  • (long pause)
  • Merlin: Why is everyone staring at me?
  • Arthur: You just called Gaius ‘Dad’. You said ‘Thanks, Dad’.
  • Merlin: What? No, I didn’t, I said ‘thanks, man’.
  • Gaius: Do you see me as a father figure, Merlin?
  • Merlin: No! If anything, I see you as a bother figure, because you’re always bothering me!
  • Leon: Hey! Show your father some respect!
  • Merlin: I didn’t call him dad!
  • Gaius: I believe you…
  • Merlin: Thank you!
  • Gaius: …son.

i’ve read fics where after the events of tss, eggsy keeps pushing himself, doing mission after mission. and i kinda want a “hamilton” inspired argument between eggsy and merlin.

where merlin is scolding eggsy for being so reckless and keeps calling him “son”, and eggsy keeps going “don’t call me son.” until eggsy finally snaps and yells at merlin’s face, threatening merlin “CALL ME SON ONE MORE TIME.” merlin is tired, angry and disappointed and eggsy realizes he went too far but before he could apologize, merlin just orders him to go home.

      ❝ What? BB-8 likes to be FESTIVE. ❞ That, and to invoke fear into anyone who dares underestimates her. Well, it IS the season. Adorn with headband of fuzzy ears, the droid rolled besides them showing off the attached paw. Poe kneels down, adjusting the headband on BB-8′s head.  ❝ We’re going for a…were-droid, if you will. She’s totally rocking it. ❞

🍷 (Any thoughts on Merlin? :D)

Send “🍷” to hear what my muse would say about your muse in FGO’s MyRoom.

The magus of flowers, or Caster as many called him. To me he’ll always be Merlin, a father-figure that acted as an advisor, as my court mage and a prophet. At times he would guide me, other times help and torment me, so I could overcome many enemies and hardships.


the moment (in the second GIF) when Merlin acknowledges Arthur as his “great hope” you can see the look on Arthur’s face like he’s so yearning for approval. He was an orphan so Merlin would be his father figure, and the next words out of his mouth are about disappointing him, which is like the most devastating thing for a person to hear from their parent…then you also think about how Arthur has spent his life looking to a tree as his father figure.

also the staredown in the last two GIFs i would probably watch on network television for a full 30 minutes and be okay with it. but also, you see merlin’s father-figure influence again. “come on kid, just put your toy sword away.”

the third thing i want to say is that arthur goes from 0 to fucking crazy in a hot second. it’s both impressive and frightening. if he does not ultimately kill merlin, it won’t be for lack of trying
