Fanart: Merlin 004. by mushroomtale Fanart: Merlin 004. by mushroomtale
"I've never met anyone quite like you."

This is 1/2 of my answer to an unexpected prompt from *helloheath! :tighthug: :heart: Strictly speaking, she specifically asked for Merlin and Freya's kiss, but as I rewatched the episode to collect precious moments, I realized that there are just too many...

In the end, I had to make two of these! I really wanted to draw Merlin smiling all infatuated and happy. Merlin always had a smile for Freya, so cheerful and sincere, even though the world was crumbling around them. I'd be staring at the screen with all my feelings willing him to stop being so only tiny yet so strong, ENOUGH ALREADY CAN'T YOU SEE MY HEART IS BLEEDING OUT HERE (YOU JERK)! :iconamgimcryingplz:

Merlin and Freya's kiss is in the second piece, which I will post really soon! I think it's officially an art trade now between me and *helloheath since she is also making a Merlin piece for me. Oh, I can't waaiiit!!! :heart: :heart: :heart:

Just saying, I probably won't be making this kind of fanart as often from now on, instead I plan on joining the weekly Camelot Drabble challenge on LJ just so I can regulate my fanart time or else it will take over my life! Please expect more original Merlin fanart in my regular anime-style in the future.

I grinned like crazy when Merlin was humming after kissing Freya. Totally blinded by love.

I watched that episode and died, seeing as my name is Freya (not literally- emotionally. Though she died literally). This is very awesome!! :D

ooh so sweet. His emotion in the bottom sequence...awww baby no ;___;

I'm such a Merthur shipper but...really I just want Merlin to be happy. And he was happy with Freya.
Gonna go sit in a corner now and cry (or maybe just rewatch this episode).
Fantastic work, as always :heart:

OMG! THIS IS WONDERFUL!!!!
And you say there is A PART 2?! :iconimcryingsomuchplz:

This is fabulous! Merlin's smile just shines off the page, you captured the love in his eyes perfectly! And Freya looking at the floating flames, with tears of relief and wonder, i love that moment too!
i cry at the end of the episode as well, when the poor girl dies in the pretty dress :-( the moment merlin said hed run away with her she was doomed! as the dragon says, you cant change your destiny merlin!

ah i love this! and i cant wait to see part 2! and im working on your half of the trade right now, now ill have to throw an extra special something in there to match the 2 part awesomeness your creating. (ideas brewing) this has been such an unexpected delight! i want to wallpaper my walls with this series of fanart you have made. Im looking forward to seeing your anime-style stuff in future too. YOUR AWESOME!!!
