it bugs me so much that that super long “what’s wrong with moffat?” post that’s going around has so many notes bc no no no no no no no, there are so many things wrong with it.
come here my children, if you want to hate moffat, let me show you the proper way to hate moffat. or better yet, let allison show you the proper way to hate moffat
no no no no no no no no
One thing I’ve learned since being here is that Arthur values your opinion above almost all others, even if he’d be the last person to admit it.
#can i mention how cool it is to have a variation of sherlock holmes where he says stuff like this #because it’s important #and this episode is my favourite so far because it’s surprisingly accurate #and it was just great to hear him say this #because sherlock holmes is of course intelligent and a modern sherlock would know this #and even though this holmes does have that social crass and indelicacy he’s softer in some ways to the others #which is what makes him different and a new take and interesting to watch #he’s a rare fictional example of a character who is pragmatic and driven and a bit socially blunt but also has a firm moral intelligence too #just because a character can be blunt and rude and not understand that they’ve just insulted someone doesn’t have to mean #that they don’t understand right from wrong (via teacupsandcyanide)
#the difference between the way he says this line though #the first time—to agravaine—it’s so…resigned #like he knows he has to just get this over with and god he doesn’t want to but he knows it has to happen #but fuck #FUCK #when he speaks to uther #he SPITS it at him #like he’s DYING to get it out there #he can’t hold it together anymore #can’t hold it in #he wants uther—more than almost anyone else—to SEE that magic can be GOOD #to SEE that he’s been by arthur’s side all these years #and all he’s ever done is HELP him and PROTECT him #and he’s ANGRY with uther because it’s uther’s fault he has to hide his magic from arthur in the first place #it was uther who put those negative ideas about sorcerers in arthur’s head #and merlin can’t fucking deal with it anymore #all he wants is for everyone to see that he is not what they think he is #he is so much more…so much BETTER
