A MERLIN MEME
ONE MALE CHARACTER | MERLIN
Thank you to everyone who replied, now I have a starting point for some research and I wouldn’t have thought of any of those things on my own! Thank you for gifting me with your knowledge!! :D :) :D :)
Personally I think Thomas is secretly a hopeless romantic and i’ve written 2 poems for my story (i know two, ones bad enough!) but the 2nd one is kinda like based on the whole thing so i’m posting it at the end, but the 1st one is like from Thomas pov, and i have no where for it to go.. yeah so my question is, do you think he’s enough of a romantic to write Jimmy a poem to go with his letter or? I really don’t know.
Oh maybe seeing it would help? There’s no rhyming scheme, its just a bunch of words chillin’ on a page. And i’m not sure how I feel about it, but I never do with poetry.
You know that I killed Thomas in alone in the dark
if you didn’t then my bad, well I still have no idea what he died of, and when I was writing it I didn’t even think about what he could have been dying of, because I wanted it to not be obvious that he was dying, and at first I was like you don’t need a name for it, but even I feel like not giving a name to what he’s dying of is kinda cheating, but then if I do somehow find an illness it could just be something with some crazy ass name which no ones heard of and idek.
I keep on trying to research it but I can’t find anything, everything I type in is one of those words which are linked to other irrelevant things like I can’t type in “Edwardian” “1920s” “early 20th century” without getting random things which happened in that time or posts about downton
(I love yer downton but your so fucking annoying in google searches) And if I type in illnesses then I just get then I don’t get things connected to the right time!
Where on earth do I find an a rare illness which caused deaths in the 20s, one which outwardly appears to have no symptoms, or symptoms which just look like tiredness
I think I said for symptoms tiredness, weakness, irrational reactions , and achiness?
Oh shit this is getting long! I’m sorry I don’t even know why you would know of rare illnesses you’d die from in the 20s. It’s just if I do say what he has it’ll be in like his letter to jimmy and that’s next chapter.
But then if it’s an actual illness, even if no ones had it or died from it for like 100 years, it then makes everything more real-but-in-a-bad-way and if I dont do it justice then people will be like ahhh your wrong!
euugh I honestly feel like everything which i’m doing with this is wrong in some way.
Yeah so if you know of anything or can at least point me in some kind of direction it would mean a lot. ?
Thomas is just like torn in between: lolololol o’brien you crack me up so much and lololol omfg the funny thing is i’m only doing this to make william feel as inadequate as he is lololol
He gets the Best Facial Expression Award for this episode
“I don’t know, Mr. Barrow. Are you sure hopping across the room on one foot while balancing a tray of glasses is standard interview procedure for a job at Downton Abbey? Only there was a man just before me, and I’m pretty sure you hired him without doing this. I don’t even think you talked to him, actually. You just kind of stared for a minute, and then he seemed to have the job. What’s that, Mr. Barrow? Now you want me to hop backwards? And I need to balance the tray on my head? I think I’d prefer a different interviewer, Mr. Barrow. Yes, Mrs. Hughes sounds fine, especially since you’re so certain she’ll approve of the length of my dress…”
|normal person:||"well, that was a sad ending" turns tv off|
|me:||sobs, slams head against wall, rewatches scene 25 times, gifs it, talks about how sad it was for the next 6 months|
Thomas: Yes, my lady, no, my lady, three bags full.
O’Brien: I’d like to give her three bags full. Preferably on a dark night.
Thomas: Will you hand in your notice?
