Today I saw something on tumblr that pissed me off.

I haven't talked much about Merlin on here in aaaaages chiefly cause I'm not all that active in the fandom anymore, despite still loving the show and its cast. Also I feel like everything I could say about my issues with it has already been said and really there's no more to add at this stage when I'd rather be focusing on enjoying Merlin for what it is than castigating it for failing to be what I wish it was. 

But there are days when I wish I was a bit more involved in fandom, if only to stop people getting away with shit like this:


(note the tags, btw)

I don't care what anyone says - the fandom is NOT 99% Merlin/Arthur OTP-ers and it grinds my gears when slashers insist on this idea, because it's an incredibly arrogant thing to claim and essentially erases my experiences and contributions to the fandom - and the experiences and contributions of a lot of my friends - as someone who couldn't give less of a crap about Arthur and Merlin's relationship.

Besides which, it patently isn't true for anyone who has bothered to step outside of the Arthur/Merlin bubbles that exist in the fandom as a whole. I would suspect Arthur/Merlin shippers DO constitute the majority, don't get me wrong, but not by that much. My rough estimation is 50% Merlin/Arthur shippers, 30% Arthur/Gwen shippers and 20% everyone else, and of those Arthur/Merlin shippers I'd guess many of them are multishippers who, even if their main interest is Merlin/Arthur, do enjoy other elements of the show. 

Beyond that, it's completely laughable to think that the majority of Merlin's VIEWERSHIP is only interested in Arthur and Merlin's relationship. I'm sorry but the fandom, which is much more diverse than these people are claiming anyway, probably numbers hundreds of thousands. The viewership, meanwhile, numbers MILLIONS. Proportionally, the fandom is a tiny fraction of Merlin's actual audience and the slashers have no business claiming to speak for 99% of them.

Ultimately, however, this claim is actually irrelevant - and THAT is what drove me to reblog with the wee mini meta essay I did, on the politics of inclusion in mass media and the history of romance/hero narratives in western culture. 

There is, in essence, a REASON why myself and so many others insist on the importance of the inclusion of women on this show and it has nothing to do with what a bunch of privileged straight girls want to fuel their porn with. 

This is what I responded with:

WARNING: ramblings of a queer and/or political nature about why representation is so damn important and ESPECIALLY on this show )

I think this as close as I have come to coherently summing up my feelings on the issue in the last couple of years, tbh. I love Merlin. I think this show is pretty fucking fantastic, actually, whatever its detractors. But that wont stop me saying over and over that the Merlin/Arthur dynamic is over-emphasised to a damaging degree and that the show would be better and frankly far more interesting and original if it would give the women some space to develop in their own right.

Take for instance, the fact that NEITHER of the main girls are in this Saturday's episode. I think that's utterly appalling because would we ever get an episode that didn't feature either of the boys? Or featured them only in a few scenes in which they exclusively interact with women and carry out actions that will effect women or have been effected by women?

Hells no. So why are the women being treated like that? It's unnecessary and frustrating and frankly just kinda unoriginal.

We arrived at Kapow at eight this morning and once they let us in went straight to the signing booth. So we basically queued from nine in the morning for nearly four hours.

I had a packet of crisps and a donut to eat through all of that (having had absolutely no breakfast) and by the time the cast actually arrived I was getting a bit worried that I was going to pass out - that long on my feet without real food was NOT FUN. But - BUT. oh my god. Totally worth it. Also actually, aside from the 'nearly going to pass out' issue the queuing experience wasn't at all bad. Far, far better than Expo, anyway. The staff were engaged, interested and helpful - they asked us how we were doing, they kept us updated about where the cast were and they were generally friendly and savvy about how to run things. It was extremely reassuring, and the people in the front of the queue with us were awesome.

Front of queue peeps and me with the 'MERLIN SIGNING!' sign we were holding up so that other fangirls would know where to go :P )

To entertain ourselves we played with [livejournal.com profile] doylefan22 's Morgana and Gwen dolls, and sent Bradley a twitpic of us sayign 'GREETINGS FROM THE FRONT OF THE QUEUE!'

Still, I really really wish the cast had got there on time because I know they didn't get through even half the queue of people waiting which is SO sad. I felt awful for the people at the back. D:

BUT.

KATIE MCGRATH. KATIE KATIE KATIE OMG.

So the cast finally arrived and because me and doylefan22 WERE the front of the queue Katie and Angel were RIGHT FREAKING THERE. And the moment Katie spotted me she waved and said 'HI! HI HUGO! How are you?!' and I was all giggle!squeeing.

Here, in JUST ABOUT the right order is what happened next:

  • I was all ‘you shouldn’t call me that - Bradders complained on the dvds.’
  • And Katie said ‘Bradley has Hugo envy. Ignore him. HOW ARE YOU, HUGO?’
  • And I was like ‘I am really tired but I’m fine. WOULD YOU LIKE TO SIGN ALL MY STUFF?’
  • And she signed all my stuff and her and Angel were TOTALLY gorgeous sweethearts who were all ‘omg bless you poor things’ when we told them we’d been there since nine and thanked us for coming.
  • We showed them our sign
  • [livejournal.com profile] doylefan22 showed the girls the little Gwen and Morgana dolls she’d made (which are ADORABLE) and the girls MELTED and Katie was like ‘YOU GUYS ALWAYS MAKE THE BEST STUFF.’
  • Also Katie does tapestry. Tapestry. And the woman wonders why her fangirls love her so.
  • And she said to me ‘I LOVE your outfit.’
  • And I was all ‘awwww KATIE….’
  • And she said ‘You are always so well dressed!’
  • And I said ‘I try…’
  • And she said ‘YOU SUCCEED.’
  • And I wanted to MARRY HER omg.
  • And then the boys were all ‘HELLO. We should sign stuff for you too, y/y?’
  • And they signed our stuff and Bradley went ‘OH YOU SENT ME A PIC ON TWITTER. YOU’RE THE FRONT OF THE QUEUE.’
  • And we said ‘YES!’
  • And Bradley was side-eyeing me all ‘I REMEMBER YOU.’
  • And I was like ‘yes you probably do.’
  • And he said ‘I recognise your voice. You always ask questions. You like to ask LONG questions.’
  • And I said ‘yes, I like to chatter.’
  • And they signed all our stuff and were really nice and I had to spell my name twice for Bradley (two silent letters - admittedly it’s NOT a signing-friendly name).
Katie and Angel signing! )And then we had to go, because it was already clear that the signing was not going to get through all of the queue and so they needed to step up the pace. It was so quick, atcually, that I realised I'd forgotten to thank Colin for being so grascious in the foyer of the cinema where I'd last seen him (at the screening of Island ) and being so kind to my friend who'd never met him before. I'll just have to thank him next time.

ANYWAY. Then to the panel queue, to sit down after four hours of standing which was SUCH a relief, omg. We all collapsed, and examined our signed things and shared our squee.

The panel itself was a lot better than the Expo ones, chiefly because, miracle of miracles, we should actually hear the cast. The accustics were MUCH better. Although I actually physically couldn't see Katie's face at first - I ended up having to kneel up on my chair - the stage the cast was on was a bit too low in relation to the audience.

Anyway, Katie waved at me the moment she spotted me and I could have DIED.

This is as much as I remember from the panel:

+Katie being all FUCK YEAH when the compere said 'And Katie's from Ireland so she's just great.'

+I asked the first question. What I wanted to ask, basically, was whether the loss of Morgana's 'grey areas' was deliberate or simply the result of time-constrictions on the episodes meaning that they just don't have the time to keep in the scenes where we get better windows into Morgana's motivations (and I think what I came out from that with was that yes, it is a time-constriction issue, which I guessed - but I also kind of wanted to make the point that we're NOT seeing all the grey ares they're filming and that's kind of sad). Anyway, after they'd answered my question Katie grinned at me, mouthed thank you! and gave me two thumbs up (I thumbsed-up back. ^_^)

+The character swap question - in which Angel said she'd be Arthur, because she'd get a sword, and Katie was like '...I want to keep my character!' and Angel said 'well you be Merlin then - if I'm Arthur, you have to be Merlin.' And Katie was like 'OKAY!' and I was like '....oh GIRLS.' Also Bradley going 'wellllll I suppose I'd want to be someone who's both magic and evil, since Arthur is not evil and has no magic.' And from the audience I said 'so, you'd be Morgana then, essentially.' and that got a laugh. :P

One of the things that actually kept the atmosphere of this panel so lovely was that calling things from the audience was fairly acceptable but no one over-used the privilige to shout stuff that was embarassing or inappropriate. It was all friendly stuff, and the accoustics made it easy for everyone to make themselves heard without having to shout. There was quite a bit of banter between the cast, the compere and people from the audience interjecting throughout. It was all kinds of hilarious.

My memory of much of the panel is honestly pretty blurry. I was SO exhausted by that point - mostly I remember it being a really great, relaxed, friendly atmosphere and also that it went by far, far too quickly.
Couple of panel pics: )

After it was over we all trailed out, collected various people and went off to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] la_esmeralda_  and [livejournal.com profile] kepp0xy  (who hadn't been able to make it cause they were working) in a nearby pub to debrief, squee and EAT.

But yes - overall kapow! was a really, really positive experience. The signing needed to have been slightly better organised but the atmosphere and how firnedly it all was more than made up for that. I hope the cast attend next year as well. But now, seriously, I have to crash.
gnimaerd: (Gwen_squee)
Yeah that about sums it up. :P

We got lucky coming up the escalator because he was like three feet ahead of me, [livejournal.com profile] kathkin  and Clarissa, and he was hanging round outside the screen with various people he clearly knew. Clarissa was like 'nooooo no i can't go up to him noooo' and I was like 'DO IT OR REGRET IT FOREVARRRR.' And then I grabbed her arm and towed her over to him and gave his arm a little nudge and introduced her.

It was WEIRDLY easy for me. Idk. I was a little bit jittery seeing him that close-to without the decorum-enforcing boundary of a signing table and security right there (BECAUSE HE'S MERLIN) but I had weirdly few hang-ups about striding up to him. I waited until he'd finished talking to his friends first and there was hardly anyone else around and he was just this very ordinary looking young guy in way-too-baggy-jeans, so it just felt kind of natural. Like making friendly chit-chat with a stranger outside a cinema like you would with anyone if you were waiting in a queue or something.

He asked where we were from and we told him Edinburgh/Canadia and then that we'd all read the book and he looked relieved and said 'oh so you know it's pretty dark then?' I think he was worried about traumatising poor innocent Merlin fangirls (and I was like 'OH COLIN. YOU HAVEN'T READ OUR FANFICTION.') There was like a few seconds when we were talking about how interesting the book was, then I told him we were sure he'd do it justice and he thanked us and then we went into the screen.

It was probably the best experience I've had with a cast member because it was so relaxed and easy. After the screening he was swamped by fangirls but by that point I was more interested in talking to the writer of the film, who was also there for the Q&A - this was her first big production and I quizzed her on her process and she was REALLY nice and told me to contact her on facebook if I had any more questions when we were finally ushered out of the cinema.

Given that I have been banned from the community in question and blocked from PM-ing the mod, I feel like this is the only way to clear up what happened on [livejournal.com profile] camelot_love  recently that led to my being banned.

I feel that I do need to state something publically, simply because I have been told by two separate people that the moderator has been saying and/or implying things about me that are, at best, unfounded, and at worst are unkind. I have not heard anything directly from [livejournal.com profile] wikked_angel_78 , however, so I of course cannot verify whether she actually has said anything. But the possibility that she has is enough for me to want to clarify a few things.

The other reason why I feel the need to state something publically is because of the sheer lack of communication with her – I have never once exchanged words with [livejournal.com profile] wikked_angel_78  and she has now made it impossible for me to do so directly unless it is in the comments of a journal other than her own or [livejournal.com profile] camelot_love . So this is also an opportunity for me to put my point of view to her, and for her to explain to me exactly why it was that she saw fit to ban me in the first place.

Here is what, as far as I can tell, happened:

Someone made a post on c_l asking who was going to the BFI screening, with obvious thoughts towards being able to meet up with fellow Arthur/Gwen shippers. I left the following comment:

 

(click to enlarge)

 
Subsequently my comment was either screened or deleted – I could still see it but no one else could, so I wasn’t sure what had happened to it. A number of people first asked me about what had happened to my comment via PM, then left their own comments re-iterating what I had said. I also left another comment reiterating my original one. Essentially, all that happened was that people were being invited to a real life party before or after the BFI screening. There was some curiosity from other members about what had happened to my comment (I was careful not to imply what I thought had happened – that the mod had deleted it – because I didn’t want to drag any drama out in public). Most people were just excited and hopeful about the prospect of a party.

The problem seemed to be that at least one of the people commenting – [livejournal.com profile] la_esmeralda_  - has been in conflict with the mod before, and I am friends with her, being her co-mod on [livejournal.com profile] merlin_multis . Various other people commenting were, of course, our mutual friends, although there were several others who were not and had no idea about E’s history with [livejournal.com profile] wikked_angel_78 . [livejournal.com profile] la_esmeralda_ 's presence and the presence of a number of others who were aware of the background of her conflict with the mod seems to have caused wikked to treat what was meant to be a friendly invitation to a party as some kind of personal attack on herself and/or the community as a whole. Anyway, at some point she came in, left a comment making a vague accusation about passive aggressiveness and deleted most of the comments left by people about meeting up. She then banned myself and [livejournal.com profile] la_esmeralda_  from the comm.

Whilst I know that [livejournal.com profile] wikked_angel_78  has been in conflict with a number of people about how she runs the community (though I was only recently made aware of this fact), I have never once had any direct communication with her, over this or any other matter, which is why I am currently so baffled as to this particular turn of events. I have not even been particularly active on [livejournal.com profile] camelot_love  itself since the last season finished airing, so it’s not as if there is any ongoing pattern of behaviour that wikked can be looking at and judging unfavourably. I can think of only two instances in the last six months or so where I have commented on anything in the comm at all. The last one did end with my comment being deleted by her, because I suggested to someone who had made a slightly off-colour comment about Arthur/Morgana shippers that it was probably a nicer idea to be respectful of them. Though it struck me as odd that such a comment would be deleted (particularly since I received an apology almost immediately and it was clear that no one had meant any real harm) I didn’t pursue the matter. As I said – I am not a hugely active member of the community, so didn't think much of it.

Equally bemusing is that, on the face of things, at least, I was banned purely for suggesting a party between members of two different livejournal communities - which, to me, anyway, made sense simply because many, many members of [livejournal.com profile] merlin_multis  are also members of [livejournal.com profile] camelot_love , so why not just invite everyone along?

I would like to take this opportunity to apologise to anyone who was unwittingly caught up in the situation. Whilst I knew that wikked had forbidden [livejournal.com profile] la_esmeralda_  from promoting [livejournal.com profile] merlin_multis  on the comm., I did not know that simply mentioning it in the comments would result in anything like this, and it was not my intention to cause any kind of conflict, especially around the BFI screening which so many of us are looking forward to.

I really only wanted to create some form of larger gathering at the BFI so that we could have a bit of a fangirly party. That offer still stands. I have no issue with the [livejournal.com profile] camelot_love  community as a whole; I have been a member there since it was first founded, and I am disappointed that I will no longer be able to participate there when the new season begins, though I will still be using it to browse for fic and pretty Gwen/Arthur fanart. In all honesty I have no issue with [livejournal.com profile] wikked_angel_78  herself, either – how can I, when I’ve never spoken to her?

I am certainly bemused, and I am worried about what I have been told she is saying about me, but I don’t feel I should judge either way until she comes to me directly, which she is welcome to do. If she chooses to contact me, I would only ask that she does so in a medium that allows me to reply, since she currently has blocked me from PM-ing her.

ETA:
For anyone who is interested, [livejournal.com profile] la_esmeralda_ 's post on what happened can be found here. [livejournal.com profile] kepp0xy , who was banned a few days later for passing on a message from [livejournal.com profile] la_esmeralda_  via the screened comments of a mod post on [livejournal.com profile] camelot_love , has written about her position here.

+Expo is exhausting. EXHAUSTING. I had forgotten just  HOW draining it is, especially on a Saturday. OH.MY.GOD.  The noise, the crowds, just -  NNNNGH. I'm completely drained and I was wearing reasonably comfortable shoes (unlike dr_dischordia, whose HORRIBLE HORRIBLE PAIN is well documented in the video diaries I kept today).

+Queueing to get into the panel room was a bit insane. Expo really need to sort out another system for getting people in to Merlin panels, because for a while the atmosphere at the front of the queue was NASTY because of how anxious people were about getting in and getting seats. It wasn't fun, in fact at one point I was worried it was genuinely going to turn dangerous (it looked like there would be a stampede inside the moment we were allowed in, and if someone tripped and fell in that, people weren't going to stop to avoid standing on them). Many of the stuards were young, inexperienced and totally ineffective at keeping people calm and civilised ([livejournal.com profile] doylefan22  was the ONLY  steward there who was worth her salt - I'm fairly sure something very unpleasant would have happened if she hadn't been there at the front managing people). We did eventually get in safely thanks to some of the firmer handed of the stuards and the compare insisting that anyone running to seats would be chucked to the back of the line, but it was hairy for a good wee while there.

+The panel itself was great - although Bradley hadn't been able to make it, and it was clear that Colin, Angel and Katie were exhausted. Angel particularly looked tired. They'd apparently been doing nightshoots last night, poor bbs. I felt REALLY bad for them. The fact that they made it at all, and were smart and funny and engaging anyway, was a miracle.

+Cringe-worthy moments were mostly minimal and luckily well-handled by the compare (who was good at making jokes over the tension and moving things swiftly on). One girl asked for a hug (WHY?  WHY would you ask total strangers for physical contact? ugggh. It's NEVER appropriate to do that - if the cast chooses to hug YOU it's another matter but you don't ASK for that sort of thing); the compare swiftly told her no and moved on - although Katie clearly felt bad for her and told her it was nice of her to come (the girl was from outside the country - I forget where). One girl mentioned slash (okay, somewhat more acceptable but still a tad cringe-worthy when it's asked sincerely).

+Lots of good questions and some awesome responses - Katie's favourite guest star is still Asa but she says he 'may' have been displaced by Emelia Fox (HELLO, RPS), who she really likes. Me and [livejournal.com profile] doylefan22  were most pleased by this news. Colin and Katie almost broke off in the middle of a question as to who would win in a fight between Merlin and Morgana to settle it by wrestling. (Clearly, this is the method of resolving conflict that Katie favours over all others, given that she did something similar with Angel in that interview at the BFI last year).

+Mine was the second question asked - I was lucky, in that I DID end up in (one) of the front rows (the chairs were set up in sort of a square formation around the front of the stage) so I got noticed by the compare pretty quick. I asked Katie about Hugo (obviously) - she said he is still integral to her character and not going anywhere (I told her 'peachy') and then asked: 'on a scale of one to ten, with one being a slap and ten being the loss of two or more limbs, exactly where will Morgana's terrible and bloody vengeance against Merlin fall?' Katie sporfled and said that as it turns out, the vengeance against Merlin is not as strong as she would like.

+She nettled Colin about Merlin killing Morgana repeatedly throughout the panel - it was very funny.

+Angel clearly has her eye set on doing some work in America as her next career goal - I think she sees being in Merlin as a gateway to that (and I hope she manages it).

+Katie says she rarely gets recognised in public (once had a full on arguement with someone on the tube about whether or not she was Keira Knightly; and was once out with Colin - Colin got recognised and a girl came bouncing up to ask for his autograph and a picture but had no idea who Katie was).

+If Katie wasn't an actor she'd want to write books about dead people (LIKE ME). Although I think she means more as a historian (which makes sense given that she has a history degree); whereas I like writing books about zombies.

+We saw the new action figures - there will be Gwen and Morgana ones too and I WILL want those. Also, there were Merlin STAMPS on sale at the expo - proper collectable postage stamps with the cast on. I was VERY tempted but they were £25 and I'm not sure it's worth it.

+I have autographs!  ^_^  Still gutted about the lack of signing session but like I said, the guys were clearly exhausted and it was just good they made it at all. And the signed mini posters we got were VERY pretty - season two promos signed with silver sharpie. NICE.

+I bought a crazy 'beanie boo' (like beanie babies but with CRAZY huge eyes - meant to look super cute but really look a bit evil). I think it's meant to be a racoon. I have named him Milo. He is awesome.

Despite it's occasional Epic Fail (see: the treatment of Morgana this series and various other things), I do still love Merlin. It is still absolutely one of my favourite things ever, alongside pepperoni pizza, the smell of Christmas trees, warm sunny days in May and sleeping babies. And I thought I would make a post celebrating that fact, to remind myself not to get too bogged down by its failings and to enjoy what it also does so, so well. So, without further ado...
