Merlin [to Arthur]: Sir Leon did a very detailed assessment of your last three patrols. Leadership? Top grades. Swordplay? Highest marks since Morgana. Under people skills, he drew what I think is a little poop, with knives sticking out of it.
Arthur [insulted]: WHAT?
Merlin: That’s bad right? Well, given your family history, I'm surprised it’s not worse. But, I think you’re the Once and Future King. If I’m wrong, you go straight back to being a prat.
Leon [embarrassed]: It was a porcupine. It was not a poop. Merlin: No, I’m pretty sure it was.
How do you make any event classy on a budget? Red carpet. My entire apartment is red carpet. On top of that, leading into my bedroom, a second red carpet. Oh, what’s this in my shoe? Red carpet insole. Everywhere I go, I’m walking on red carpet.
Imagine: Merlin saving you, while on a hunting trip with Arthur and taking you back to Camelot, where you fall in love with Merlin. Since Merlin is so close to Arthur, the King gives you and Merlin money, so that you can afford a wedding. [x]
Arthur: Have you asked Y/N to marry you yet? Merlin: No! I can’t ask them to marry me- we haven’t got the money to pay for that. Arthur: Merlin, I can- Merlin: -I know that Y/N deserves the best, but I can’t afford that; I don’t want to give them any less that they deserve. Arthur: Merlin, I can pay for the wedding. Merlin: What? A-are you sure? Arthur: Yes, you and Y/N both worthy of a wedding, and I don’t mind helping out. Merlin: Thank you… Honestly, thank you.
IMPORTANT: As always, we have edited and uploaded soundtracks to our
youtube account to accompany your reading of the script. Soundtracks
will be indicated by the red numbers in brackets that appear at various
points in the text (example:  means play soundtrack #1 on the episode
playlist). We strongly recommend using this prepared playlist while you
read, as it helps to complete the experience and make it feel like
you’re watching an episode on TV (really, it makes all the difference in
the world!). Everyone’s reading pace will be different, but we did our
best to time each track to the pace of each scene. Soundtrack playlist
We’d love to hear your feedback!

I know a lot of other actors have very nice eyes whatever the colors and I know a lot of other actors have pale eyes, but somehow Alexander Vlahos’ eyes completly blow my mind . George Blagden, Colin Morgan, Evan Williams and Bradley James (alex’s co-star in Merlin and Versailles) all have beautiful blue eyes, and yet, every time I watch Mordred or Philippe d’Orléans on screen I’m just like “woooaaah look at the eyes!!”. Weird.
