    Episode 55: Fanart Part 2

    In today's episode, MissSnowfox and Xancredible are again joined by Amphigoury and Altocello to finally continue and conclude our talk about fanart! This is the second part of a two-parter, in which we're talking about where you can go to find fanart, and how we feel about people making money off of fanart.



    The episode is roughly 2.5h long, which is yet another miracle job of editing work by Rox because still none of us can shut up, and the raw file is 4h long.

    Episode 67: Arthur/Morgana & Gwen/Merlin

    Episode 67: Arthur/Morgana & Gwen/Merlin

    In today's episode, MissSnowfox and Alex are joined by Brent and Joelle to discuss the ships Arthur/Morgana [Armor] and Merlin/Gwen [Merwen].



    Unfortunately, Brent had some tech issues and is therefore hard to understand a lot of the time. Please be patient with it, usually Rox or Alex will sum up Brent's point at the end. We just didn't want to cut them from the episode entirely.

    Disclaimer: The works listed below (especially the ones in the Top 3 categories) are Armor and Merwen works by the best estimation of xan, who compiled the stats. Xan checked the summaries, tags, and author's notes to determine if these fics looked like they actually focused on Armor or Merwen as a pairing, or at least gave the pairings a central role, rather than treat them as background decoration. We apologise that some of the listed fics might not be Armor or Merwen works by the estimate of an Armor or Merwen shipper.

    Episode 63: Review 2×11: The Witch’s Quickening

    Episode 63: Review 2×11: The Witch’s Quickening

    In today's episode, MissSnowfox and Xan talk about the eleventh episode of season two: The Witch's Quickening. Join us for a little under 2.5h of questions over questions, a lot of rage about everything, and the regular amount of nitpicking just with fewer headcanons to fix any of the issues, sadly.



    Also, if you find it strange that Connor has things to say during the talkback and then not for the rest of the episode, it's because we used the talkback recording of a different episode and added it to this episode because tech failures mean that the Costumes episode for misc. characters wasn't fully recorded but we managed to salvage this massive talkback.
