mordred used to be so good

angstysquirrel16  asked:

Random but... What's your favourite Morgana scene and why?

Omg I can’t choose just one! You’re asking the most indecisive person ever and the fact that I love every single time she’s on screen doesn’t help! 

I’m not really good with words so I will use gifs!

One of my favorites is this one. This entire sequence is so amazing and this shot was perfect. 

I also loved all her scenes with Mordred, I love their relationship. Even when she was evil she still cared so much for him.

Every time she defied Uther while being his ward, no matter the consequences. She was so good.

And these scenes with Aithusa, especially the second one. I also love their relationship and Morgana would have done anything for her, we saw this. At the end Aithusa was the only thing she had left and she truly loved her. Also in that second scene you can see how broken and lost she’s become, especially after those awful two years, and I think you can see how deep down she’s still the same scared and pure person she used to be.

So yeah, sorry I can’t choose. I just love her and her scenes too much. I’m probably forgetting a lot of them.

And sorry for the late answer! I might have gotten a little bit distracted while I was making the gifs

Thanks for the question! Have a nice day :)

Inexplicably, Haley has gained 1 heart with Farmer Mordred.

Meanwhile Mordred discovered that Sebastian read books and that vaguely gay feeling comes back for about 4 seconds.

(That’s my experience with asexuality. I’m intensely interested in someone for about 3 blinks and then I move tf on lmao.)

But Mordred caught Abigail on her b-day with a giant cluster of amethyst so she jumped from 0 to 3 hearts real quick. Now she’s starting to discover that the grumpy gofer cryptid who only showed up in her dad’s shop every now and again to hand over some Really Fucking Good Stuff and used his (giant) dog like a donkey to carry his wares was actually kinda cool.

Mordred got dragged to the saloon on Friday nights to hang out with The Three Stooges (Abigail, Sam and Sebastian) and helplessly got pulled into the tight-knit small town charm.

Also Abigail loved his pumpkins. They came in all shapes and sizes and he sold them for pretty cheap when her dad mentioned it was for her.

  • Kay: Okay, kids. Who broke the catapult? I’m not mad. I just wanna know.
  • Gareth: I did. I broke it.
  • Kay: No. No, you didn’t. Mordred?
  • Mordred: Don’t look at me. Look at Galahad.
  • Galahad: What?! I didn’t break it.
  • Mordred: Huh. That’s weird. How did you even know it was broken?
  • Galahad: Because it’s sitting right in front of us and it’s broken!
  • Mordred: Suspicious.
  • Agravaine: If it matters, Lynette was the last one to use it.
  • Lynette: Liar! What would I even do with a catapult?
  • Gareth: Alright let’s not fight. I broke it, let me fix it.
  • (off to the side)
  • Kay: I broke it. It was in my way so I punched it and then I kicked it. And then I threw it off the sidewall. I predict ten minutes from now, they’ll be at each other’s throats with warpaint on their faces and a pig head on a stick. Good. It was getting a little chummy around here.
Why do you think YOU should be Anya’s top friend?

As requested by mystery478

1. Gino

“We’re knightmare buddies, classmates, and the only Knights of the Round bar Suzaku who get any real screentime! Think about it, we’re always around each other! It has to be because we’re just awesome friends, right?”

Anya: Maybe it’s because you’re tall enough to be my human shield.

Gino: Hah hah! What friendly banter!

Anya: I wasn’t joking.

2. Suzaku

“We’ve got a pretty solid friendship going. You ask me deep questions about my psychological motivations, I’m pretty elusive. That’s the sign of a good Code Geass relationship!”

Anya: That’s pretty valid actually

Suzaku: Right?

3. Jeremiah

“We collect oranges together! Truly there is no relationship more beautiful! Oh, and I also gave you all your memories back.”

Anya: You probably should have said that last part first.

Jeremiah: You think?

4. Bradley

“Sure, I’m an asshole, but at least I talk to you!”

Anya:

Anya: That was cold.

Bradley: My speciality.

5. Arthur

“Meow!”

Anya: Please kitty

Anya: You’re making it hard to maintain my emotionless demeanour.

6. Lelouch

“We haven’t interacted as much as the others so far, but I do give you a lot of opportunities to use the Mordred! On Cupid Day, for example. And every single Black Knight campaign.”

Anya: Why do you think I enjoy fighting?

Lelouch:

Anya: Well ok it is pretty fun.

7. Kallen

“Nevermind Lelouch, I’m the one who did the actual fighting against you!”

Anya: Do my friends here on out just include people who I’ve fought?

Anya: That’s sad.

Kallen: Uh…HAPPY THOUGHTS!

Anya: Wow, you’re good at this.

Kallen: Tha-heyyyyy…

8. Schneizel

“I accepted you into my army even after that horrible business on Kamine Island left you psychologically unstable. That’s dedication!”

Anya: …I think conscription laws disagree.

Schneizel: I’m Emperor apparent. I pretty much am the law.

9. Nunnally

“We may have never met, Anya, but people like to write fanfiction about the two of us because we’re both adorable! So that’s something!”

Anya: I’m…

Anya: I’m adorable?

10. Marianne

“Yoo-hoo! Don’t forget about me, Anya! Especially since we’ve been so close for so long! We always know what’s on each other’s mind! It’s like I’m a part of your soul.”

Anya: AaaahaaaahAAAAAAAAH

Marianne: Didn’t you miss me?

And the winner is…Arthur!

Arthur: [purring]

Anya: I really need a pet to destress me after that.

He could feel himself leaning into her touch, though he would inevitably curse himself for it later. He knew better than to rely on her for anything now didn’t he? The simple way that such a small touch could ground him, was enough evidence to show otherwise.  “Because I’m your son,” His voice falters at that last word, and it is easy to hear just how upset he is, even if he was used to  hiding it on his face (not that he was doing such a good job at that). “Orkney is my home, it will always have my loyalty first,” The boy knew he shouldn’t have been searching for his Mother’s approval, not when she so often gave it, and yet he could hardly help it. “Do you think that little of me, that I would have forgotten my duty,” It was his right as fist born after all,  not even Mordred could take that place.

Is it only with me that Alistair’s not being a very good tank? He has good shit equipped and everything (I think) + I’m playing on easy, but he keeps DYING while Sten loses HP quickly but murders everyone in (3) hits + Leliana singing her magic songs to keep us happy, so really I’d just have Oghren along to fill out the last slot and have one more heavy-hitter, or just get Shale to pummel people with their Big Strong Golem Fists.

Not that it’s really that big of a deal. Mordred can cast Group Heal with his weapons drawn and Heroic Defense doesn’t require maintenance past the first cast, AND I don’t bring the sad Chantry boy along often but I was just wondering.

Official Knights of the Round Light Novel TRANSLATION, Gino's Chapter

Hey guys! So beyond the first season, the cg light novels have never been translated/localized. As good Japanese practice then, I began working on translating them! (Also because it’s fun)

The Knights of the Round novel has 4 sections, and this is the first, which focuses on Gino and his ideology. The timing is right when Suzaku joins the Rounds, and eventually meets Gino+Anya.

Translation by ME (Ellen!).

Proofreading of both the translation and English writing quality by Phresine.

anonymous asked:

What are you favorite books about arthurian legend? I know you made a list but it's soooo enormous that i prefer to read you opinion. Thanks for this blog, really!

Haha I am always 100% glad to share my biased and long opinions on books : D

(For some of these books I’ve written a review on goodreads and I am linking it in case you’d like some more detailed and sometimes spoilerish opinion)

  • Idylls of the Queen” (Phyllis Ann Karr) I think this was the sixth arthurian novel I’ve read and I’ll always be grateful for livejournal and the amazing lj fandom for recommending it (and also the next novel in the list). This is a mistery novel (especially if you haven’t read Morte d’Arthur or if you don’t remember the particular episode and murder used in the novel) where Sir Kay, with Mordred’s help, has to investigate a murder and save Guinevere from being found guilty. I particularly loved how alongside the mistery, the novel also slowly uncovers Kay’s personal feelings for Guinevere and Lancelot, Mordred’s true birth and the anger (and this is my favourite characterization for Mordred) he is feeling, the Orkney’s family misteries. Both Nimue and Morgana appears in the novel and they are friends, competent, grey characters. Amazing.
  • The Winter Prince” (Elizabeth Wein) This novel is pure gold for any Mordred’s fan. The novel is all about him, his jealous for Arthur’s legitimate children, the love he feels for his brother and sister, his relationship with Morgause. It’s cozy, it seems almost small in comparison from other arthurian novels as Arthur’s life itself is not grand castles and tournaments, but a Roman villa and sensible ruling with the help of Guinevere. This is basically a heartbreaking analysis of Mordred.
  • Exiled from Camelot” (Cherith Baldry) my guilty pleasure. Basically it’s the story of Kay murdering Loholt (as one of the many Percival texts of the traditions say) and being exiled from Camelot. The novel is full of bromance, subtly homoerotic huggings and tears. I LOVE IT. (review)
  • Corbenic” (Catherine Fisher). I cried while reading this. On the train. The theme of the difficult relationship between a parent and their child, the love mixed with regrets and guilt, is my favourite one Here it’s combined with the story of Hal (percival in modern times) and such an amazing retelling of the Quest of the Holy Grail. I’ve read it only one because I don’t think my heart would be strong enough for a second time.
  • Gawain” (Gwen Rowley) Okay, this looks like a romance and it is a romance (between Gawain and Ragnelle) but I hope you’l be surprised as me if you’ll read it. This novel is rich of arthurian little details, I love when I can read a novel where the themes and the characters are perfectly combined as in a puzzle. 
  • The Once and Future King” (White) well, I don’t think this needs any presentation. I’ll just say that before reading this I had a distrust and irritation towards the character of Lancelot.
  • The Pendragon” (Catherine Christian) This is the novel of Bedivere. All the story of Bedivere and his friendship with Arthur and Palamedes (thanks Catherine Christian for Palamedes!). This is heavily historical while I usually prefer more Malory-like settings. A nice Mordred plot twist that made me a little jealous because I’ve thought of writing it too in a story of mine before reading it haha
  • I am Morgan le Fay” (Nancy Springer) Such a lovely elegant nice little novel. I love Morgana as a character but I always tend to be cautious because I’ve been burnt with “Mists of Avalon”: Here instead I could finally read of Morgana away from Camelot, the revenges of Camelot, Arthur and all the story we know as the book was more focused on showing us how Morgana become the woman we know and explaining how her character could be so ambigous and grey. (review)
  • Morgana” (and “Arthur”) (Michel Rio). This series (which also has “Merlin”) is a trilogy about philosophy, about what is good and what is not, the great love of Morgana for Arthur and her cold mind of a scientist. As a scientist myself I could love her so much (also Mordred is the instrument of destructions not because he is evil but because he is too just and good and not human enough).
  • Persia Woolley’s Guinevere (it’s a trilogy). I think I’ve read all the Guinevere trilogies? Maybe? But this one (and also Sharan Newman’s one) was my favourite. The first book is a bit slow, but the second one and especially the third are so full of arthurian elements that are usually ignore that I was delighted while reading them. It also features a sensible argument for the opposition between Arthur and Mordred.
  • Here Lies Arthur” (Philip Reeve) this might seem like an odd choice as it is very historical (Arthur as a chief historical) and dark (Arthur is not really a good character) but I liked the protagonists so much: Nimue (well, not her name but her character is basically Nimue) and Percival.
  • The Savage Damsel and the Dwarf” (Gerald Morris) which is the third book of the Squire’s Tales series. I loved all the series but this novel is my favourite as for me it was the funniest (and all the series is a parody so I valued the funniest among them). This is the ironic story (and not how we expect it) of Lynette and Sir Gareth.

These are above all my favourite novels. I also loved these two collections of short stories “Doom of Camelot” and Parke Godwin’s “Invitation to Camelot” because they have some quality short stories in there.

Other notable books I truly enjoyed a LOT (and I mean A LOT):
“The Road to Avalon” (Joan Wolf) (review)
“Firelord” (Parke Godwin)
“Blessed Bastard: A Novel of Sir Galahad” (Lehmann) (review)
“Bedivere, Book One: The King’s Right Hand” (Wayne Wise)  (review)
“The Book of Mordred” (Velde) (review)
“Avalon High” (Cabot Meg)
“Sword at Sunset” (Rosemary Sutcliff)
Bernard Cornwell’s series

♦ ☮ for Mordred?

Yah! :D

♦ - quirks/hobbies headcanon 

Mordred’s handwriting is atrocious and only gets a little better with age because other people need to read it, but he is a very good artist with the ability to render whole complex images down on paper almost exactly as-is. This makes Mordred’s copying of text and drawings in the Deep Roads to send back up to the Wardens very successful. 

He also has a thing for colors, surprisingly. Watercoloring is his favorite, and whenever Mordred travels above-ground, he would mess with different chemical formulas to obtain painting colors that are either used by him to paint or sold off to shops wherever he goes. 

☮ - friendship headcanon 

Part of the reason why Leliana liked him so much, aside from Mordred’s clearly boosting her up when she’s down and in doubt, is because he is very easy to read and has decided, several times, to trust her despite her giving him every reason to not do so. For a bard, an opponent who is easily read and perhaps easily manipulated should the necessity arise is a blessing. Also Mordred changes and matures but within a very set frame with hard dividing lines, so he’s easy to predict as well.

Mordred is…aware of it. He’s only gullible for strangers; among friends he often has very sharp insight. But he lets her lie and lets her get away with it. Trusting that she won’t – on the very important stuff. And Leliana didn’t. The letters she sent Mordred to inform him about the state of Thedas after the mage rebellion contained insights and doubts that would have been dangerous for a spymaster to reveal.

He didn’t let her down. He never did.
