Death can not stop true love, it will only delay it a while. – The Princess Bride.
Of all the quotes of love out there, this one is my favourite. Why? Because it is truer than most people can imagine. Some loves are so powerful and true that they over come the greatest challenge of them all been separated by death. Because in truth some loves are simply destined.
That is the true power of soulmates.
To be able to find your other half no matter how long it takes. For they share a bond unlike anything else out there.
They are the other half to each other, that missing part of their soul that needs to be filled.
You could even say they are two sides of the same coin.
Let me tell you a story, a story of a love so powerful that death, time and space could not keep them apart.
I am talking about Arthur and Merlin.
Now you’re probably thinking to yourself that I am crazy. That Arthur’s great love was Queen Guinevere, well you were wrong.
Honestly I have no idea where the idea of Arthur and Gwen came from.
Yes it is true that Guinevere did indeed hold the heart of Sir Lancelot and that of a royal, but the royal in question was Lady Morgana.
At first Gwen was torn between her two great loves, afraid that one day she would have to choose between them. But that was never to be, united by their love for Guinevere, Lancelot and Morgana found it within one another to let each other into their hearts.
It was the love of Lancelot and Guinevere that broke threw the darkness in Morgana’s heart that brought her back over to the side of good.
Now onto the next thing wrong with the legend of King Arthur, Merlin was not an old man; in fact he was a little younger than Arthur when he arrived in Camelot.
Unsure of his destiny his mother sent him to a dear old friend to help him. There he ended up working as the prince’s manservant. Completely unaware of just what the royal prat would come to mean to him and what he would come to mean to the prince.
For they were two sides of the same coin, destining bind them together in ways no one foresaw.
Prince and servant,
King and wizard,
These were all the things that they came to be to each other and so much more.
But while destiny was kind in bring them together she was also cruel.
For Arthur was mortal and Merlin he was of magic,
And right before his eyes Merlin watched his beloved king age and watch death take his love from him.
Yet in her cruelness, they was kindness of a kind, Merlin was immortal and would live long after the Arthur legends faded away completely forgotten in time, Arthur would be reborn, and each time he was Merlin and he would be reunited.
Morgana like Merlin was of magic and she remind by her friend side, each taking the comfort that the other offered in the times when their love ones where once again gone from this world.
Because while destiny had offered Merlin kindness, Morgana had suffered punishment, for her dark deeds Gwen and Lancelot would never be reborn the same time, leaving Morgana feeling the lost of part of her soul always, this will continued until the day Morgana has completely made up for all her dark deeds.
And I feel that day is coming, something on the wind invites change.
You might be wondering to yourself how I know all this; well I should, after all and I am Merlin, or as you may know me as Ianto Jones.
