If you follow the BBC's family show Merlin, you already know that many things changed between series 1 and series 2; one of these things was the relationship between Prince Arthur and Morgana, the King's Ward. When they were first introduced, they had a bickering (even bordering on flirty) relationship. They teased each other and argued all the time but it was more than obvious that they cared about each other very deeply. They had plenty of important and beautiful moments together and Bradley James and Katie McGrath (the actors who play Arthur & Morgana, respectively) have amazing chemistry and always bring out the best in each other when they share a scene.
Come series 2, the writers and producers of the show decided to go in a different direction, reducing Arthur and Morgana's interaction in favor of other relationships and plotlines. Those of us who were enthusiastic about the pair were very disappointed and sad that our favorite couple wasn't even interacting at all anymore, and that they had individually changed so much from who they were in the first series.
However, series 3 has now officially been announced and we've decided to show our support by letting the people in charge know how much we love Arthur and Morgana together, how much we miss their interaction and how badly we want to see them have a shot. If you're a fan of these two as well, don't hesitate and help us! If we work together, maybe we can change things. Time to let our voices be heard!
Want to participate? Here's what you've got to do:
Choose one (or many!) of the pretty postcards you'll find below.
Print it out, front and back, preferrably on a thick piece of paper or thin cardboard so that it's sturdy for mailing. They all come in handy PDF files so all you have to do is hit the print button.
Write a brief message on the back of the card, letting the producers or writers of Merlin know how much you love Arthur and Morgana together, and how much you want them to end up together in the show or at least have some more nice scenes and meaningful interaction in the future.
If you'd like to add anything (other pictures, art, photos of yourself and your boyfriend cosplaying as Arthur and Morgana, a mix tape, a list of your favorite Arthur/Morgana scenes/moments-- the sky's the limit), feel free to do so! anything you can add to show how big a fan you really are is more than welcome.

Some light rules for the content of your letter:
Always be polite. Even if they didn't quite go the way we wanted them to, the producers and writers of Merlin still deserve our respect and admiration for giving us this show. Besides, we don't want to make them angry, remember we're trying to get them to see things our way here ;)
No bashing other ships or characters. Clearly we're all very passionate about this couple, but try to be as neutral to opposing ships/characters as possible. If we want to be taken seriously, we have to show them that we're mature and that we've really thought our arguments through.
Keep it kid-friendly. While we all want to see some hawt smexiness in the future between the Prince and his Lady, Merlin is a family show and there are limits on what they can and can't give us. Let's not freak TPTB out by getting too racy.
