Merlin

by EverStorm


Warning: This work has been rated 16+.

A parody of Frozen's Let it Go - a tribute to the Merlin Fandom

The name glows bright,

On my flat screen tonight.

It's the beginning of the show.

Merlin walks into Camelot,

And gets in trouble from the start.

My heart is pounding, 

As I sit, and wait for more.

Arthur Pendragon, you, I adore.

Merlin and Gwen, and Morgana

 BBC, this is the best that I have saw!

I think I'll die, I just need more!

So give me more!

**

Season one, season one,

I'm hooked and it's just begun

Season one, season one,

Why does Merlin act so dumb?

Arthur is a royal prat

Uther is insane

Morgana is the only normal one!

**

It's season three and we all know,

Morgana flipped her lid.

Arthur and Gwen get together,

And we all wanted that ship.

Merlin saves Arthur every day,

He gives the credit all away.

Uther's a jerk but what is new?

I'm doomed!

**

Season three, season three,

Merlin and Freya were meant to be!

Season three, season three,

Made all the tears flow free.

Arthur's crushed,

Cuz he's betrayed!

Morgana's his sister?

I saw that one coming a mile away.

**

Season four proves to be better than the last!

Except when Morgana makes Lancelot come back from death...

Arthur banishes Gwen when she cheats on him.

Man, he's got it rough, but Merlin's there for him!

**

Season five, season five!

Oh look, Mordred's alive.

Season five, season five,

Oh shit, ARTHUR JUST DIED!!!!

Here's my soul,

You ripped it out!

Merlin broke my heart...

I didn't really need it, anyway...

Heya, Eevee! Casanova here to do a review! Before I take a complete half-hour break I'm going to review your one lyric that I see in here so I can do all your poetry at one time. Since lyrics are something I know a bit, I'm not going easy this time :P

Anyway, to the review!

The rhyme scheme is choppy and off putting. I don't know how mixing it up helps, but you do you. I would suggest doing an easy rhyme scheme for this, considering the topic. Something like an AABBCC rhyme scheme would prove effective. As it stands, your rhyme is everywhere and nonexistent in places. Fix it.
The next thing I would like to point out is flow. It's the same one, over and over and over again. In singing we rarely come across a song that has the same flow. The same beat? Yes, all the time. But flow is important in grasping your viewers. When I sang this in my head it seemed a bit dull, so I would suggest posting the backtrack if you have one. If this was written in your head I suggest using better punctuation if you want to show your flow, if a fast melody isn't what you were going for.
As for the imagery and things- I won't be touching on that considering the subject matter. If it wasn't a fandom lyric, I would be all over it.

The next thing I'd like to say is the switching. You speak of seasons one, three, four, and five. But you don't speak of season two. Why? If you don't like it, say so. If you do, say so. But at the moment you have nothing on it. I would suggest changing that since this is a fandom post.

Anyway, that's all I have to say on this. I"ll be breaking then continuing with your portfolio.

Keep on doing what you're doing, and keep on keeping on.

Your friend, Cassy

OMG EVERWINTER THIS IS THE BEST THING IVE READ

I love Merlin. We've already established that friendship from Bradley James.

Oh dear this is amazing!

I'd have to say there isn't anything to fix because it's just too perfect and it brought tears to my eyes because I miss the show. I rewatch it 24/7.

"Season five, season five!

Oh look, Mordred's alive.

Season five, season five,

Oh shit, ARTHUR JUST DIED!!!!"

The best thing ever omg. I love this so much and you've just met my fangirl side and now I look like an idiot in front of my mum because I just squealed. I love it. THANK YOU FOR WRITING THIS BECAUSE THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER

Hello, steampowered here for a review! I haven’t reviewed in months and it might take me a while to get back into the swing of things, so apologies for that. :)

As someone who loves Merlin and has seen all the seasons (apart from the third season which I skipped for some reason) I really enjoyed reading this. I even started to sing along to it… then I remembered I was in school and I didn’t really want to make everyone think I was weird. My only criticism of it is that sometimes the lyrics seem a little clunky:

Arthur Pendragon, you, I adore.


This doesn’t really fit in syllabically with the original “couldn’t keep it in, heaven knows I tried”. Also, the “you, I adore” doesn’t really sound right. Maybe “Arthur Pendragon, and actors I adore” or “Arthur Pendragon, you’re someone I adore” – you might have to play around with it so you can fit it to the tune, but perhaps this would improve this line?

BBC, this is the best that I have saw!


I understand why “saw” is here – to rhyme with “more” – but the grammar isn’t quite standard; it should be “the best that I have seen”. Consider rewording to “This show’s the best I ever saw” – again, “BBC” doesn’t fit in so well syllable-wise with the lyrics.

Why does Merlin act so dumb?


“Merlin, you idiot.” :P

Season four proves to be better than the last!
Except when Morgana makes Lancelot come back from death...


Consider trying to fit in with the rhyme scheme of the original song. I’d suggest trying to make these two lines rhyme, as I feel it would really make the song stronger.

In general, it’s really good and I love parodies of this nature, but some of the best parodies use some elements of the original song to make it funnier. For example, “my power flurries through the air into the ground” could correspond in the parody to something similar. I do like how you go through each season (although it’s a shame you completely skipped the second season) but in the original there is a theme about magic with a chorus that’s virtually the same every time. Having that original chorus there might be nice, too, but it’s just a thought. :)

Apologies if any aspect of my review doesn’t make sense – I’m working in quite a noisy environment at the moment so the review might be a little disjointed. Keep writing! I’d love to see more Merlin stuff on here, since it’s one of very few fandoms I’m familiar enough with to enjoy reviewing. :P

Hello EverWinter! CHRISSY321 here to review your awesome Parody! :D

*Happy Review Day!* :elephant:

This was just too funny! I know the frozen song and I was reading it to the song, it it was just too funny! XD

I love how you took this and was able to make it all fit into this song, and you even kept the context of the actual song as well. :D

This line though I really enjoyed the most:

Season three, season three,

Made all the tears flow free.

Arthur's crushed,

Cuz he's betrayed!

Morgana's his sister?

I saw that one coming a mile away.


I think that is really too funny! I have not seen this show (Sorry!) I might just need to see it though! (But now I have seen al of these spoilers... Boy am I in a predicament....)

There was NOTHING in the poem to fix! Sorry this review turned out pretty short, but I think that it is just awesome how there was nothing for me to fix! This whole review was just praise!

Please Keep Writing!
~Chrissy <3
