My lords,

   
         I apologize for leaving the court but the Huntress was leaving and I wanted to keep her company. Though, I must admit I began to fall deeply in love with her. I thought her some of my enchantment as to one day she will become mine.

            I joined her on her journey and we stopped at the Perilous Forest. Viviane was intrigued with my talents but unfortunately I could not foretell my own future. Alas, I decided to tell her a plot that was planned against Arthur. The Lady of the Lake asked if I could delay the battle for we could join the court. My love for her was so deep that I would gladly go on to this quest. Though I was aware a treachery because I would be betrayed!

            We made a stop in the middle of our quest. I wanted to show the Lady a chamber that I knew. My lady was amazed of the tale I was telling her. She wanted to stay the night there, together. I knew this was my opportunity to make her mine though; tis did not seem the right place or the right time to do so.


            I began to fall asleep and the lady put a trance on me! She enchanted me and trapped me where the lovers were laying. I knew a betrayal would occur to me but there was nothing I could do without losing my own soul. No one can release me but the Lady of the Lake. This cunning young lady defeated me.

Do not feel shameful for your actions of love, Merlin. While you do have the power to know all things, you cannot control your own feelings or even know your own fate. There was no way to know the true intentions of Vivianne the Huntress, and there was no way of stopping her from committing the evil that she has. Your intentions with her were only the most sincere, but she did not perceive them to be so. She has made you suffer greatly, and for this I hope you have learned a valuable lesson about trust and love.

Though I would offer sympathy for such treachery, but my dear Merlin you should've of known that the love that you share for the Lady of the Lake was one that was doomed from the beginning. First off the mere age of the fair maiden should have been your first sign to not indulge in such sinful feelings of someone so young. Then also to think that she must of put blatant resistance to your apparent love for her, that you should of stopped right then and there with the pursuit of this and let the poor girl be. You are man that is aware of many things that some of us can not even imagine, so though you may not know your own fate your perception of hers should of made you realized that her intentions were of nefarious nature and not of good. If you were to actually see the reality of this unwanted love maybe your demise wouldn't have happened in the first place.

Merlin, a great and powerful magician. Son of demons, and gifts of god. You are most powerful and all should fear you. I have heard your cry and must make my feelings known. I have only the deepest sorrow my heart can feel. You, such a powerful magician struck down by a mere girl? What was the reason? Some bad misguided intentions? She lies! Merlin would not disgrace her, he only has love in his heart. And if he had intentions of deflowering her, when a man desires a woman, she is bound by his love and must equal that love and do as he says. This is the way it has been and will be. So Merlin. Die not knowng that you were bestest by a girl of fifteen, sleep knowing that you will remain in history forever.

Merlin,

Leaving the court for such a woman as the Lady of the Lake was a disastrous thing to do. You have left your court who would have kept you safe, but instead you followed your heart for a fifteen year old maiden was a virgin that you could not have. My dear, Merlin, I wish you could still be here to stay in our court, but you are gone due to your Lust.

Sir Bedivere.

Merlin,

Do not blame yourself for this misstep! Yes, while love clouded your vision and tempted you into this place, you are a strong enough man to escape from it. Do not forget, wise old wizard, that you are the one who taught this young woman all that she know when it comes to the powers of enchantments! I agree with the Giant: that young lady should have given herself to you (though she is quite young Merlin...) as her duty to her Lord and the Court. Alas, now you are lost to all of us, trapped far away.

Oh Merlin, how full of sorrow I am that you are gone. You were the wisest there ever was. It is unfortunate that our court must go one without your guidance. It is also unfortunate that you trusted a woman! You, who was once so wise. How could you let yourself be fool by a woman? To even let her bring to you your downfall? That wounds me so Merlin. I thought you were the wisest, but now, you might even be beneath me, for you follow something you thought was love. Lust is not love Merlin. I feel I have been shamed and tricked by your simple minded actions. You once earned my trust and respect but where am I to place that trust and respect now? This misfortune was something that you have only yourself to blame. You have betrayed my thoughts of you Merlin.

Merlin,

You rely too much on your supernatural perception that your own two eyes go unused. If you were not so secretive in your affairs, one of your many good friends could have told you what was plain before your eyes, but invisible to all your unprecedented magic; Viviane did not like you. She made you swear an oath that you would never do anything to displease her. This does not sound like a girl who trusts you very much. And when you offered to accompany her on her journey home, you could not tell that in her heart she wished for nothing more than to be rid of you there once and for all? For a man so accomplished at knowing, who made his name by having all the answers, your fate disturbs me greatly. I hope you find your way into heaven, and are never reunited with your demonic father.

Gawain

Oh Merlin,
I want so badly to empathize with you for I know first hand that love can make you do things you shouldn't normally do. The trickery of potions and trances is all too familiar with me, I cannot blame your for you were only a victim to love. I can only ask of you to be wiser in future events for love takes a strong hold, but it is not always accountable. I wish you were able to foresee this love was a doomed one. I do wish you back in the court but sadly you are not.

Oh, he of the Enemy, thou demon-spawn! How could thou claim to be so wise and virtuous at court, yet still fall to the simple designs of such a young and unlearned maiden? While our Lord blessed you with miraculous foresight, your failure stands as an example to those who allow the enemy into their life. Any sensible person understands that men are born with sin and the predisposition to sin on their soul. Evil, however, is something that must be conscientiously welcomed into ones life and soul. If you had a pure and godly soul and thus a good and wholesome conscience you may have had Vivianes love by our Lord's blessing. You've clearly been struck down because of your demonic blood. Had your soul been unsoiled by grave hellish sin you might've been rewarded as your heart desired, and it is clear to me that Viviane's intentions were made apparent from the beginning.
