I'm English. I have exceptionally good taste - I'm a fan of Anthony S Head!
Oh, I'm also an occasional reblogger.

Aries is the sign of the self. People born under this sign strongly project their personalities onto others and can be self-centered. They dislike taking orders and enjoy getting their way. They crave adventure and like being the center of attention. Aries are very impulsive and usually do not think before they act or speak. If confronted, Aries will fight back aggressively and are known to have temper tantrums. Under their strong, independent surface may lie insecurity. Aries puts much pressure on themselves to succeed and it can lead to self-doubt.

Merlin is an evil show - it lured me it by the funny and now I am snivelling and snivelling. But the father-son love Uther and Arthur have for each other, no matter what, is one of the best things about Arthur (and the best thing about Uther). Arthur loves his difficult, flawed father, unreservedly and utterly and openly. And he will do anything to take care of him, while being fully cognizant of his faults. And Uther may be a cold, arrogant SOB who has killed a bunch of innocent magic practitioners in his pursuit of vendetta against magic, and he doesn’t really care about most people, but he is so proud of and loving towards his son. In an odd way, theirs is a supremely healthy relationship in a medium which loves its dysfunctional parental dynamics and I treasure it in part for its rarity.
Also, I love how well and unstintingly Gwen takes care of Uther, the man who got her father killed and who almost had her burned at the stake, because she loves Arthur and she puts her own feelings aside to do this for him, to ease him. And there is Merlin himself (but Arthur x Merlin will get their own post, of course), who is going to do magic to attempt to save Uther’s life - the life of a man who’d gladly murder him if he knew of his abilities, because he doesn’t want his
true lovefriend to suffer.
You know what a freaking rarity is it to have a show about good, noble, unselfish characters? Oh God, I am going to be a wreck when this show is done, right? Right?
