Morgana Pendragon: Who I Am
We all know the story of Morgana Pendragon: her past, her struggles, and her magic. Like all myths or people, Morgana had her origins. Do we know what the origins of her name were or where her character came from? In order to get to the heart of the story, we need to know how it began. But the biggest question for us to answer: Who is Morgana?
The name Morgan was often referred to as a boys name, so the some Arthurian sources use the name Morgain. As for Morgana, this name is the Spanish translation; nevertheless, whatever name is used, Morgan comes from Welsh origins meaning “the Bright Sea.” Le Fay comes from the term Faeries, people who were the original British. Faerie people often had dark hair and skin and were known for disappearing very quickly.
Morgana Pendragon, Morgaine, Morcant, Morgue, and Morgne are all names for our beloved the Lady Morgana. Most commonly known as Morgan le Fay, the character of Morgana can be traced back to the time of the Celtics, to the Triple Goddess known as the Morrigun or Morrigan. Morrigan played the role of the Goddess of Death and came in the form of a raven especially after a battle to claim the heads of the dead. It was from here that the character of Morgan le Fay would be shaped into the powerful sorceress of the Arthurian legends.
Morgana le Fay is a powerful sorceress from Arthurain legend, and King Arthur’s half sister. Early sources say she was a healer, but over time she changed into a more witchlike character, who was trying to get rid of Arthur by using her magical powers.
Her character, like most characters from the legend, has been written and re-written many times. Some say that Morgana was the leader of nine maidens of Avalon, and that they took the injured King Arthur away in a barge after the Battle of Camlann. Others say that Morgana was friendly towards Arthur, but bitter to Guinevere, because she broke up one of Morgana’s romances. In this version of the legend she exposes Guinevere’s affair with Lancelot by bringing in a magical drinking horn, from which no unfaithful woman can drink without spilling. Some even say she was half-faerie, and for that reason she is Morgana ‘Le Fay’, Le Fay meaning the faerie.
Morgana le Fay has been portrayed in many movies, motion pictures, TV series and plays by some amazing actresses like Helena Bonham-Carter in Merlin (1998), Helen Mirren in Excalibur (1981) and of course the amazing Katie McGrath in the BBC series Merlin.

Merlin fans needed!

FaPingMulan is hosting a Secret Santa project for Merlin fans like us.

Here's her personal note:

"Attention all my watchers who are Merlin fans,

I thought I would take a moment to mention a Merlin project I wanted to start looking for volunteers for.

It's a Merlin Secret Santa project here on DA.

Participants would be able to do either a drawing, a drabble, or one shot as a secret gift for another participant that would be randomly and anonymously chosen for them based upon a small questionnaire each member would be provided to fill out upon signing up.

Sign ups are from now up until Oct 25th and all participants must have their gifts sent out by Jan 1st.

Anyone interested?

If I can get enough people who are interested I will create a special group specifically for the Merlin Secret Santa project and include more rules and details on that group. "

Please contact FaPingMulan through her DA profile if you want to be a volunteer.

Special thanks to FaPingMulan for sharing her project with the @MorganaFanClub. I hope some of us participate in this heartwarming gift exchange.

Happy holidays everyone!

Signed,
AutumnAngelArt

Go to the above link to help bring the Merlin tv show back! Cards in the Post is claimed by the Merlin2Return Campaign to be a safe way to buy postcards. This company is sending all the postcards bought through this link to the address provided ("Ben Stephenson", in whom is the Head Drama Commissioner of BBC UK). You can buy 1, 5, 10, etc. The goal is 300 postcards or more in order for the impact to be great. (The latest number that was announced to have been sent was 70.)

If you're interested in buying postcards to bring Merlin back, you can reply to me or go to this link to read instructions on how to do it yourself. [link]

Hi Morgana fans!

Please help out by writing a letter (a couple of paragraphs long) to Katie Mcgrath for the summer project on this page. [link] Just Facebook message the page your letter and the admin will send your letter with others to Katie. Sept. 1st, 2012 is the deadline, so time is running out!

The page administrator is a friend of mine and she needs support because she wants to hand-deliver the gift to Katie at Pierrefonds during Merlin's filming date.
