Today's to-do list is pretty daunting (and contains annoying numbers of Official Phone Calls & Emails, which I tend to put off out of...sheer contrariness, it seems?), but I'm getting through it. Of course, the item I'm working on now is 'finish all 6.07 notes' which is going to to take forfuckingever because I kind of dropped the ball at the end of last term, and now my brain has gone soft with chocolate and relaxation over Easter.

For reasons related to time & health & money, I'm trying a new thing where I only watch a single episode of television a day, if that (currently I'm rewatching S1 of Farscape), and also seeing if I can replicate the crazy stress-illness time at the end of last year, when the doctor ordered me off chocolate, coffee and alcohol. I slept a lot better and didn't worry so much about other foods, and the money flew out of my wallet a LOT more slowly when I wasn't buying coffee.

I predict a lot of tea-drinking and book-reading as a result of the above, which sounds dandy-fine.

Also: the second chapter of the heist AU, as promised :)

Er. Despite the many, MANY other things I am in the middle of, this piece of fanart by [livejournal.com profile] lizardspots seized hold of my brain yesterday. So I scribbled very fast for a while in order to PURGE THE MADNESS, and this appeared.

This is slapdash crack. I repeat: CRACK. It should not be mistaken for good-quality fic in any way, which is why I'm posting it here instead of at the ficblog.

You will never, ever know how hard I tried not to name this GOLDENEYE. But I failed. Because the laws of crack must be obeyed. (A bitter kiss will bring him to his kneeeeeeeees!)


Get on with it, Agent Pendragon, we're working to a bit of a deadline here. We don't have much time to indulge your insane kinks. )

The non-linear perfectionist in me is going to live to regret this, but:


(part one of what will in all likelihood be a depressingly large number)

This is the secret Merlin AU about which I have wailed to enough people that it doesn't really count as secret any more. And now you're ALL IN ON IT, which -- hopefully -- means I'll write the damn thing faster than I otherwise would.

Sleeeeeeeeeeeeep time.
fahye: ([avatar] game set & match)
Okay, so our train from Naples to Catania was delayed en route by OVER THREE HOURS due to reasons we would know if we understood Italian, and then we got slightly lost on the way to the hostel, but now we are here and I have had some lovely red wine and a lovely Long Island Iced Tea and so am beeeautifully tipsy and Mel is watching MERLIN DUBBED IN ITALIAN, which is currently playing on the TV and is pretty much hilarious. It's the episode in Ealdor with Will and Hunith and Arthur playing king-of-the-peasants and the immense OT4ness! And it's in Italian!

...and the people in charage of the remote just changed the channel. HAVE THEY NO TASTE HEART.

...and they just changed it back. MERLIN CONQUERS ALL. Awww, Gwen is being awkward and moral at Arthur and Arthur is helping Merlin with his armour and Morgana is rocking her chainmail and man, I really do love this episode to death.

My own entry for this exchange is trying, trying, TRYING to be completed, even though I am absolute shit at writing without a computer, but look what [livejournal.com profile] red_rahl did for me for an O_S_S gift! LOOK! IT'S MAI! This is clearly my week for awesome fanart :)

fanart omg

[livejournal.com profile] yutaya has done some amazing, hilarious, adorable fanart for Quickening Days and it has basically put me in the best of all possible moods.

Lady Emilia! Merlin's expressive face! The Epically Destined OT4! ARTHUR LEERING AT GWEN!


This fandom is THE GREATEST.

You have to bear with my immature glee here because omg, banners! for me! this has not happened before!

They have my name on them and everything. )

Isn't that nice. I feel all glowy. Also I am hilariously enamored of the second banner and the way Arthur looks like his shirt is about to COMBUST because he is TOO INTENSE AND SMOULDERING FOR HIS LACE-UP GARMENTS, and Merlin looks kind of like he walked in on Gaius and Uther playing kinky, kinky sex games.

Also how about that last banner, phwoa. MMMMMCHEEKBONES.

Today we went on a great walking tour of the Old Town and tomorrow we will touch down in Dublin and I will get to see [livejournal.com profile] copinggoggles again, so all-in-all it's been a good day.

22,174 words later...

(I wrote a fucking novella in a week, you guys)

...the fic that shall henceforth be known as GROUNDHOG GAY (thank you, random commenter) is complete! It has way more dialogue and action and plot than my usual fics and is much less prettily written, but it is done and that is all I care about.

Quickening Days -- Merlin/Arthur -- This, whatever they had, whatever they were creating simply by existing in the same space at the same time, was too important to risk losing.
fahye: ([mer] just a voice I did create)
Fic update: 11,575 words

This is now officially the second-longest thing I've ever written. (It'll have to make it to 18,000 to beat the Big Damn Crossover.) I was going SO WELL at writing it start-to-finish until I hit a block, and now I am just leaping around and writing self-indulgent kissing scenes, but whatever. At least it's growing.

I feel it is a clear indication of where my fannish priorities are right now that I have defriended [livejournal.com profile] chuunin and friended [livejournal.com profile] merlinxarthur, because I can only cope with one high-volume community on my flist at a time, and right now the latter is the one giving me the insane medical intern/Prince of Wales AUs.

Also, I am about to email my aunt and ask her to tape the season finale off the TV so we can watch it when we're in Birmingham, because there is no way we can watch it in an internet cafe in Prague without paying through the nose and/or being put in a Czech prison for being publically squealing nuisances.
fahye: ([mer] no apprehended gloom)
I have been writing this stupid thing for so long I am losing all perspective. My own plot is swallowing me whole.

Which means: random disconnected snippet time!

(Which means: VALIDATE ME.)

In which dragons & ghosts & prejudices are confronted, Merlin wears a hat (twice) and a dress (once), Arthur breaks some crockery (lots), there are more pranks than pillowfights but at least one of each, and many secrets are revealed. )

Yeah, because the last thing I needed to erupt fully-formed into my consciousness was a FUCKING AWESOME FICBUNNY. I wasn't even doing anything to encourage it, I swear*, I was washing my hair in between studying respiratory medicine and haematology, and the idea just hijacked me out of nowhere and now I really, really, REALLY want to just sit here and write furiously. It has a Plot and everything, and you know me and my normal lack of ability to write Plot.


I might start it tomorrow, if my first exam goes well enough that I don't panic and spend the rest of the day buried in my notes.

In the meantime, oh Merlin-watching denizens of my flist who have a better memory for detail than I: have we seen anybody use anything breakable on the show? I know they have the anachronistic windows, but I don't recall them drinking out of anything that wasn't metal, and their buckets are made of wood...is there any pottery around the place, either ornamental or useful? I need something that will go smash.


*Okay, MAYBE I was thinking about Merlin in a dress, but that's not my fault at all.
fahye: ([mer] just a voice I did create)
OMG 1x10 OMG




If I start going on about all the ways in which this episode made me flail like an idiot, I will never stop, and this study break has gone on long enough.

Also, I just wrote a 4500 word fic in two days, which is a MIRACLE.

Meteorology (five ways to defuse a prince) -- Merlin -- Destiny was a bitch sometimes.
fahye: ([mer] shadows of the world appear)
Guys. Guys.

If you thought I was weirdly obsessed with Merlin BEFORE I'd seen any episodes...

Cut to spare your eyes some embarassing and largely pointless flailing. And also pictures. )

"Manservant," Merlin says, desperately.

"Manservant," Arthur says. "I win. Now put on the dress."


Okay, I AM doing a proper kinkdrabble for this pairing. Later.
fahye: ([mer] euclidian geometry)
Yes! It's time for Fahye to prod you all in the direction of a fandom for a show which she has never seen! (Note: I am planning to watch it. Imminently. Episodes are being sourced.)

First off, I offer you an excellent pimping post.

There is also this video by [livejournal.com profile] mamoru22, which I linked to yesterday. If it does not make you grin like an idiot, there is no hope for you.

Apparently everyone has chemistry with everyone else (hurrah!) but fandom being fandom, it has zeroed in on the DESTINED TO BE SOULMATES, NO REALLY, JUST ASK THE GIANT DRAGON pairing of Merlin/Arthur.

- And Still by [livejournal.com profile] foreverdirt is a plotty adventure story with MAGIC and QUESTS and other great things. The fact that I am even considering a new fandom in the midst of OH GOD EXAMS ARGH time is entirely her fault.

- Controllable Things by [livejournal.com profile] ariastar is about Arthur's fear and Control Issues (the type of issues closest to my heart!) and man, I am so glad I wheedled Aria into this fandom.

- the way the sunshine gleams by [livejournal.com profile] snakevsladder is a slightly darker take on their relationship and Merlin's opinions. Mmm.

- I have reread MERLIN by [livejournal.com profile] moonythestrals a couple of times now, and it keeps getting funnier. It is a FRAT BOY AU and it is stuffed full of meta and beer and scriptwriting and Arthur's BlackBerry.

I also feel duty-bound to mention that [livejournal.com profile] lassiterfics and [livejournal.com profile] bedlamsbard are cowriting some kind of epic Narnia/Merlin thing, and in the meantime there is Aslan talking to the Dragon which is hilariously similar to what happened when Lucifer met Galadan that one time.
fahye: ([buffy] the night that ends at last)
God, I really need a mental & physical health day. Still not feeling well, slept at an odd angle and did something to my ribcage, and all I want to do is curl up in my doona and drink tea and watch silly movies. Or write. I've skipped this morning's lectures but ughggggghh I have compulsory tutes later and I'm going to be useless.


In other news, I am...sort of enormously enthusiastic about the Merlin fandom despite not having seen any of the show. Mostly this is the fault of this vid (and Arthur's hilarious facial expressions) and a handful of fics which I will rec in another post.


The Fic of Shame (name now official) has progressed from being a very silly idea to being ACTUAL PARAGRAPHS and I still can't quite believe I'm writing it and I'll try not to talk about it incessantly for fear y'all will expect something with substance, because if there was ever anything that seemed unlikely to live up to even the measliest amount of hype, this fic is it. Trust me.


I can't believe I just used 'y'all' in a non-ironic manner. Damn grammatical ease!
