Merlin: Finally Finished S3

I'd been sitting at 2 episodes left to S3 for quite sometime, but tonight I finished them off.

Watching Merlin always leaves me with a desire for h/c fic. It's like that show was BUILT for h/c - even with the amount it does have, it never seems like enough. 

Plot-bunnies come from the weirdest of places, but tonight, Merlin has put me in the mood for a story about a prince who falls in love with a whipping boy. I don't know if such a fic exists, and I'm certainly not going to write one...but I'm blaming Merlin completely on the desire to read such a thing.

It wouldn't actually work that well as a fic, because technically, the prince is SUPPOSED to fall in love with his whipping boy...but still. 

Maybe I just like saying "whipping boy"....yes, I think that's it. And this is coming from someone who doesn't even like d/s, sm, or any of those type of things.

Oh, Merlin. *shakes head fondly*
I love the show, but I feel like 'cause I can't ship Merlin/Arthur and I actually enjoy the show's het and ladies I don't quite fit into fandom anymore. So I just sit over here thinking up plot bunnies that I know from experience are too big and would swallow me whole.
BUT YES. Everyone gets lots of awesome H/C in show. Sometimes, more h than c.

Yeah, I'm a sucker for h/c...more the c than the h, though...which is probably why the show always leaves me craving more.

I'm not sure I quite fit in with the fandom either...I've only poked around a little, but so far the writing isn't really up to my standards (*is fully aware she sounds snobby*)

I find Merlin is a funny show to watch, because if you see magic as a metaphor for homosexuality - then suddenly even the het is slash. At least, in my head it is. (The exception to this is Arthur/Gwen, but the metaphor takes care of that in a weird way too for me, so I'm good on that front as well.)
