This is part 2 of a two-part episode. The first part can be found here. In that, we took a look at Mor(g)wen in canon. In part 2 we’ll be examining fanon more closely.

We also managed to keep this second part down to just over one hour runtime. You’re welcome again ;).

Unfortunately, due to how we record the podcast, there is some background noise that couldn’t be filtered out during editing.

[as of 26 Mar 2018,  Archiveofourown.org]

Disclaimer: The works listed below (especially the ones in the Top 5 categories) are Mor(g)wen works by the best estimation of momo, who compiled the stats. Momo checked the summaries, tags, and author’s notes to determine if these fics looked like they actually focused on Mor(g)wen as a pairing, or at least gave the pairing a central role, rather than treat them as background decoration. If any of the listed fics aren’t Mor(g)wen works by the estimate of a Mor(g)wen shipper, we apologise for the error.

  1. On whether they ever intended Morgana and Merlin to get together, I believe Colin was told not to be so flirty with Morgana’s character in the episode where they introduced Mordred, “The Beginning of the End”. So it sounded like they never wanted a Merlin/Morgana relationship – which I thought would be an interesting pairing but was not to be.
