time for a merlin rewatch i think

anonymous asked:

i JUst saw you were in the Merlin fandom so uh maybe a Merlin AU with Nico as Authur and Will as Merlin (But he kinda specializes in healing magic and like brings Nico back from the brink of death all the time )

  • will visits the market closest to the di angelo’s castle once a week probably and one time while hes there he gets caught in the middle of the knights’ training and a couple of the knights start trash talking him for getting in the way and literally the one thing that will says back is essentially calling nico a 12 year old and nico basically responds with ‘pal you better not show your face here again got it’
  • and wills ready to get the heck out of there but he overhears someone plotting to crash the king’s dinner that night to kill the prince so wills like “ok guess im also gonna crash that dinner and use my magic to stop that from happening hopefully nobody sees me”
    • thankfully instead of ending up getting burned at the stake for practicing magic inside the kingdom, will gets rewarded for saving the prince (who turned out to be that jerk hanging out with the knights at the market) and the king offers will the position of nico’s servant/bodyguard
    • will gives his fakest smile and is like “yes thank you thats totally what i wanted to come out of this situation please dont kill me”
  • so will has to wait hand and foot on nico the total jerk and thats not even the biggest problem!! bc nicos super against magic users and has no idea how to be polite!! so he keeps ticking people off and getting on their bad side so they come back to try to kill him!!! and ofc will as the bodyguard has to keep getting him out of trouble
  • will manages like 2 years of saving nicos life over and over and somehow never gets caught even when hes using magic literally constantly, and over time nico stops acting like a complete and total jerk??? at least to will???? like sometimes he still does but will can tell its just teasing and they sort of develop,,,,, a relationship??? almost??? theres feelings there but they cant say anything to anyone and can only act on it in private
    • hazel’s the only one they can talk to bc theres no one nico trusts more than hazel they tell each other everything (except for the fact that hazel also has magic???? her and will bond over that and nicos always confused about what they could possibly have in common)
  • nico ends up way more hurt then ever before once bc someone managed to get him and will separated and when wills finally there to heal nico he’s too afraid to let nico fall asleep bc hes too injured and what if he doesnt wake up??? but he has to heal him asap or hes gonna die real soon
    • so wills like “nico u need to listen to me very carefully im so sorry i never told u but i have magic and thats how ive been healing u all the time and thats what im gonna do now so please dont be angry im doing this bc i love u and if u dont let me then youre gonna die so please just hang on ok”
  • he gets nico healed and gets him tucked into bed and he sleeps for like 2 days and when he wakes up he makes will get in the bed with him and will thinks theyre gonna cuddle but nico hits him bc how dare will never tell him he had magic did he really think nico would have him killed????

now i wanna rewatch merlin so thanks for that but im in the middle of a voltron rewatch so,,,,,,

thanks for the suggestion!!!! i hope this is what you were looking for!!!

drop an au in my ask and get a list of headcanons

no more please!

The Foxes and Hounds Affair episode rewatch + trashy commentary

AKA: Illya Thinks About Napoleon All The Time, And Everybody Knows It

Merlin: If you will stand here, and think of a secret. Some little secret, which perhaps only you know.
Illya: ……
Merlin: You think of something very, very secret. Oh, you think of a man! A Monsieur Solo, who is on vacation while you must work.


Merlin uses his mind-reading device to read an audience member’s mind during his evening show. The audience member turns out to be T.H.R.U.S.H.’s Victor Marton (played by the brilliant Vincent Price). 

Victor is, of course, here for the mind-reading device. A chase follows, in which poor Merlin gets shot and falls to his death. Victor glances disinterestedly at Merlin’s body, then looks up at Illya, who’s on the fire escape.

“Close, Mr. Kuryakin, very close!” Victor calls. He gives Illya a little wave. “Good to see you again, by the way!”

There’s a fun little chase scene with Illya rolling around and jumping over staircase railings. In the end he drops the case, but gets away. T.H.R.U.S.H. opens the case to find…that it’s empty.

Victor: My instinctive dislike for that young man is growing into a sincere and honest hatred.

Agent Cantrell has the mind-reading device and is trying to get back to New York. Mr. Waverly decides to use:
(1) a poor random innocent who has no idea what’s going on, and
(2) Napoleon, who’s been away on vacation and thus has no idea what’s going on, to decoy T.H.R.U.S.H. away from Cantrell. 

A brilliant and cunning plan? Illya’s expression says it all.

Enter Napoleon, who walks into Del Floria’s only to find that the secret entrance isn’t working and Del Floria doesn’t seem to know who he is. I’m convinced that Mr. Waverly came up with this half-assed plan for the sole purpose of pranking his top agent.

Napoleon: What’s the matter? Didn’t we pay our rent this month?
Del Floria: Hey. Perhaps you’ll tell me, what is it you want?
Napoleon: What I want is to get into my office.

T.H.R.U.S.H. grabs Napoleon and shoots him up with truth serum, but since Napoleon actually doesn’t know anything, it doesn’t get them very far. Napoleon finds this hilarious. (Also, he’s adorably obnoxious as all hell when drugged up on truth serum, hahaha Napoleon ilu ❤)

Victor Marton, meanwhile, is taking a break from cordially sniping at Lucia Belmont to pay Del Floria’s a visit.

Victor: Victor Marton, to see Alexander Waverly please.
Del Floria: O__o
Victor: Oh, come now, my friend. Do you announce me, or do I march in there and pull that silly little knob, hmm?

I will never get over how Victor can just stroll into U.N.C.L.E. HQ for tea with Waverly whenever he pleases. He even gets a visitor’s badge and everything!

T.H.R.U.S.H. grabs Illya and injects him with truth serum as well, which, uh-oh, because Illya actually does know where Cantrell is.

Lucia: The electronic thought translator. Where is it?
Lucia: Where is it?
Napoleon: Fight it, Illya! Do something - think of girls!

Right, of course that’s going to work. Illya’s expression at being asked to think of girls is not encouraging.

Napoleon, darling…shouldn’t you know better by now, hmm?

butt.gif, or: Just Because I’m Trapped in a Filthy Prison Doesn’t Mean I Can’t Look Bloody Amazing, an Autobiography by Napoleon Solo.

Lucia Belmont very nearly gets away with the the thought translator, except she steals Victor’s plastic explosives handkerchief, sneezes into it and blows the thought translator, her minions and herself to kingdom come. 

“Gesundheit,” mutters Napoleon.

(Everyone is staring at the carnage except Illya, who is staring at Napoleon, so clearly things are more or less back to normal.)

Despite the ridiculous plot, this is a really fun episode with lots of hijinks and one of the most entertaining T.H.R.U.S.H. villains ever (thank you, Vincent Price!). 

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll just be in the corner wondering how well Illya would have held out against that truth serum if he’d been focusing on his very, very secret thoughts of Napoleon instead of thinking about girls. (…although then perhaps THRUSH would have ended up learning truths of an entirely different variety.)
