Okay I need to take a moment to squee about all the delicious new promo material for the upcoming dramas The Borgias
, especially regarding the pairings of Lucrezia/Cesare and Arthur/Morgan respectively.
First of all, though we still don't know to what extent their relationship will be romantic, from the clips and pictures and interviews it certainly seems like Arthur/Morgan will be intense and epic and important, which is just how I like it! :)( 'The relationship between Arthur and Morgan and their dual desire for the throne is the key spine of the series.' )
Then there's the fact that The Borgias
(which has an even more epic trailer than Camelot
's) seems to be pushing the incestuous Lucrezia/Cesare relationship as the epic romance of the series, which is pretty bold and amazing and pleases the d00med!shipper in me very much, lol! ;) As a long-time Arthur/Morgan(a) shipper I'm used to shipping incest/half-siblings anyway, lol, it doesn't phase me, and from the trailers and pictures it looks like a really gripping and compelling/touching forbidden romance, full of chemistry....I haven't even seen the show yet, and I'm already shipping it SO hard! :p <333 Here's a mini-spam of the shippy promo pics we have so far...( Taking 'brotherly love' a little too far... )
Also I like the look of Cesare so far, he seems sympathetic
and really hot
. And of course there's Pope Jeremy Irons, can't go wrong there...I could listen to that voice all day! :)
Anyway, can't wait for these shows to come out! I remember being so excited when when I first heard about Camelot
, and it's good to see it doesn't look disappointing so far....though god, more TV in the spring, lol, at this rate I'll be swamped! :p
In other news I bought my first lottery tickets ever, lol, since the Mega Millions is up to $355 million today, so might as well! The draw is at 11 pm, lol, we'll see...
EDIT: While looking for the The Borgias
trailer to rewatch I also found one for a Spanish movie called Los Borgia
in 2006 starring Lluís Homar as Rodrigo Borgia and Paz Vega, which I clearly need to watch now! :D
EDIT 2: Now I've also realized that the icon I used here is even more appropriate than I thought, since the actress playing Young!Morgaine seen there is apparently the same one playing Guinevere now, all grown up! Another reason to be excited for Camelot
...:D I did love her in MoA, and lol how ironic to go from playing Morgan to Guinevere...
