She was just a love interest, she was too perfect, she was too fickle, she got in the way of my ship, she was poorly written, she was a damsel in distress, she was best in S1, she bored me, etc.
I’ve spent almost two years in this wretched fandom hearing the aforementioned rationalizations for hatred of Guinevere, my favorite character on the show. And now that the show is over, it seems the wretched have descended upon the Guinevere/Gwen tags like some sort of biblical plague to outline ONCE AGAIN all the reasons why Gwen has earned their blatant disrespect.
And I just need to let you all know this: I don’t fucking care. And I imagine that very few Gwen fans tracking her tag are interested in hearing why you dislike her. Because we have heard it repeatedly over many years, in many forms, from many fans, over and over and over again. Let me assure you that you add NOTHING new or clever to the discussion. Your meta/character analysis is not at all original. It has been discussed, refuted, rebuked, rehashed many times over the show’s run—here on tumblr and on LJ and on various fan forums and in the goddamned comment sections in various youtube accounts, even.
There’s nothing you can say about Guinevere that hasn’t already been said about her by young and old assholes alike. And I have nothing to gain from 1000+ word essays that put forth your indifference to/hatred of the character. By all means, continue to marginalize Gwen if you must, but AT LEAST spare those tracking the Guinevere/Gwen tags. Don’t tag it. Just. Don’t. Do. It.
It’s standard tumblr etiquette after all.
the song doesn’t really have to do with arwen, just the line.
uther stressed marriage for strategy. arthur married for love and got strength and support, not only for him, but for camelot. and the kingdom grew stronger from the inside than it would’ve from a marriage to secure an allegiance, all because a prince fell for a serving girl who had stood up to him.
when something shakes up arthur and gwen’s relationship, arthur can barely function, but gwen always manages cope. that’s why i chose that lyric. gwen is stronger than arthur. if she was to die as his wife, his heart, the heart of camelot, then he would be nothing. gwen is the force that drives arthur. she’s helped him be the king that he his, the greatest king in albion. she’s strong for him, and he knows that she’ll be strong without him for camelot.
