So, yeah, on June 4th (which, yes, was a long time ago, but I just got the pictures on my computer today), I went to Pierrefonds with my family! It was pretty awesome.

Picspam/set report below:

The view of the castle from the taxi!

View before the stairs, on the way up!

Crossbow slits ran along the outer wall-thingy (before the stairs). It'd have to be crossbows, and not arrows, because they're too close to the ground for a bow.

On the way up, my brother pretended to be a not so very cool archer.

Outside the castle, the random catapult (I think)!

The road to/from Camelot that everyone takes (except us).

In all it's Medieval glory!

The drawbridge!

And, what do you know, after we'd arrived outside the castle and were taking exterior shots and everything, a nice shiny silver car pulls up, and who gets out but...COLIN MORGAN, SARAH PARISH, AND ANTHONY HEAD (you can kind of see them in this creepy picture I took).

THE hallway that people walk down all the time! Obviously, this is taken from the gift shop area, and you can see the schoolchildren's backpacks.

The lizard drain!

The main doors, kind of blocked off. :\

Into the castle!

Fleur-de-lis from episode 2.

The stairs leading to Morgana's room (awkward angle because the area was roped off).

The gryphon statue beside it.

They left these two banners out, and I guess they took them away later....?

It is only a model, after all.

Pictures taken discreetly from a window!

More filming pics....also, Colin likes to move around a lot?

The balcony!

The doors complete with guards and a random knight.

This goes to the bathroom (the plaque you can make out on the left is a sign pointing to the toilets).

For some reason, there are cushions (I'm guessing Lady Catrina's), that they apparently tie to the third horse with the baskets on it.

Sneaky picture taken of Sarah Parish touching up on her make-up and ASH checking his cell, excuse me, mobile phone. Colin left around this point.

What do you know, they do put the cushions on the third horse!

Sarah Parish on a horse.

Sometime around this point, I went back into the castle while my parents and younger brother watched the filming.

The very messy balcony, as seen from a window.

The AMAZING throne room!

Uther's throne!

The Camelot village set they were building, from an open window.

This door led up to the battlements (that my brother really wanted to go up to), but it was locked. :(

Right outside the throne room (when I backtracked from the battlements), evidence for the legitimacy of the Narnia/Merlin crossover stuff that [livejournal.com profile] be_themoon, [livejournal.com profile] bedlamsbard, and [livejournal.com profile] lassiterfics worked on (mostly in comments).

The door to the balcony, also locked.

For some reason, CHICKENS.

Remember this from 1.01? For some reason, it's here again. ...Now why would that be?

And, to end with...

COLIN MORGAN! I'm there too, but we only want to focus on Colin (and becuase I forgot to crop me out, and now I'm too lazy to do it). Yes, well, while he, Sarah Parish, and ASH were waiting for the crew to finish setting up, I kind of awkwardly approached him and asked for a picture. Then ran away to the toilets. *sheepish*

Aww, thank you!

Hahaha, yeah, when I saw your post I was like, "I have pictures like those!"

I know, it seems we all have a penchant for going there on good days. Awww, that's sad that they filmed inside, but then there was Colin/Green Plastic Bag!

♥ ♥ NO PROBLEM and I have no problem with you saving the pic. :)

Oh, awesome! I've been looking forward to this and it's awesome. Awww, you got a picture with Colin! He's adorable. XD


AND. I bet I bet I bet that that scene they were filming, the one that begins with "What a charming idea!", was Uther inviting whoever Sarah Parish is playing on a picnic. IT WAS THE CUSHIONS, THEY GAVE IT AWAAAAY.

Ooh, why is the snake shield back? *shivers*

In short, AWESOME. So glad you had a good time, and thanks for taking the time to make us a report. Yay!

Glad it met your expectation! And yes, he is very adorable.


Oh, yes, that makes a lot of sense actually, because some people who visited the set the day after me said they saw ASH & Sarah Parish (who's playing a troll pretending to be "Lady Catrina") filming some kissing outdoors. Mmmmmm.

...I don't think that's the snake shield, Betsy (that's from 1.02). That's the weird circular piece of wood that Arthur was using for target practice when he first meets Merlin.

Hahaha, no problem, the report was my pleasure! ♥

MERLINARNIA THE ONE TRUE CROSSOVER. ahahaha. Camelot, too, knew the Lion.

These fill me with such deliiiiiiight. The height difference between you and Colin is cute ehehehe. COLINNN. The Camelot set! Half a house! THE THRONE ROOM IS SO GRAND. Morgana's room omg XD. And I am really really really amused by Uther checking his mobile. I bet he's texting Arthur like "where r u? ur supposed 2 b in court 30min ago!" And Arthur ignores the texts because his mobile's always on silent when he's hunting. "Besides," he'll say, "the part of the woods where all the good game are doesn't have very good coverage."

Yes, Camelot knew the Lion! Evidence within the castle itself!

Hahah, he is very, very tall (I think like 6 feet or something), while I'm not. Hahahahaha, I love your idea about Uther texting Arthur...now I want mobile!Camelot fic, which is kind of odd to think about...but oh well! I would not be surprised if he did. Imagine his text ringtone going off right as he's about to shoot a deer. XD

Picture with Colin FTW!

I'm going to be in Paris next month and would love to vist Pierrfonds. Do you mind me asking what travel arrangements you used to get there? Any help would be much appreciated.

Date: 2009-06-19 01:10 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] katakokk.livejournal.com
I know!

Haha, no problem. Well, if you're staying in Paris, you'll need to get around riding the metro, which is actually, for all it's confusing-ness on the map, very easy to understand. What you'll want to do to get to Pierrefonds is ride the metro to Gare du Nord, the train station, from wherever it is you're staying, and buy a ticket for the train to Compiegne, a town right by Pierrefonds (which doesn't have a train station). You can either take a bus or a taxi down to Pierrefonds, I recommend taxi if you have a large party. Their are some slight problems with both of these transportations though: the bus runs on a schedule, so you have to time your fangirling carefully, and Pierrefonds doesn't exactly have it's own taxis so you'd need to be able to call the company for another taxi to take you back to Compiegne (you'd need to speak some French, which I don't, sadly). I think the taxi driver would give you something with a phone number on it if you were to take a taxi.

Sorry if that was confusing!
