Since content would be "My hands are cold, I want some lime juice, is it naptime yet, not touching the hundred thousandth round of m/m writing debates with a ten foot pole although I'm reading quite a lot of the discussion, OMG I have almost everything I've ever written transferred over to the Archive of Our Own, Bradley James and Colin Morgan are adorable and so are my cats, thank you and may your god or lack thereof go with you."

Instead, memes.

Merlin - Arthur loves youuuuuu man


Title: His Own Hand
Fandom: BBC's Merlin
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin
Word Count: 12,276

Warnings/Spoilers: Spanking, wanking, angst that suddenly grows a sense of humour, and Uther as semi-unwilling voyeur

Summary: In which Merlin is punished for saving his life for the thousandth uncredited time, and arguing with Uther is the stupidest thing Arthur's done until the next thing.

Disclaimer: The BBC and Shine, man. None of that copyright stuff for me.

Notes: Written for kinkme_merlin and posted over in my anon-for-two minutes ficjournal, crazypaving. Which ohboy did I need thanks to not writing in forever + new fandom + hello MP's id = self-consciousness overload.

On LJ: Part 1 | Part 2

(Or AO3 if you prefer it in one piece. I just like responding to comments on LJ so I can stare at pretty icons.)

When the raising of head is blatantly and shamelessly about fandomhigh, because applications for new students and teachers for the Spring 2010 semester are open!

Four and a half years and still going. Zoe Winchester (formerly Washburn) is our Principal. Deadpool is VP. Barney Stinson is Dean of Students, and Nathan 'Cable' Summers is the Mayor. Anakin Skywalker teaches, drives the welcome bus, and frequently gets bitten by gremlins. The students, teachers, townies and active alumni hail from 157 different fandoms and the senior class includes Alice Liddell (American McGee version), Cordelia Chase, Chuck Bass, Arthur Pendragon, Merlin and Morgana, Worf, Jaina Solo, Lois Lane, Sam Winchester, Dinah Lance, Hannibal King and Leto Atreides. Among *points to icon* others.

It's brain-sucking crackdramacomedyfun and it's entirely possible that if you join, you'll never get your life back. A vague disclaimer is nobody's friend. But don't take my word for it. The characters put together a little brochure:



[The shoeless wonder, for the curious, isn't Claire from Lost; it's Tahiri Veila from the Star Wars EU.]

You know those huge long periods when you don't post but you're still reading and suddenly you realize it's been like...September since you posted anything and that was flocked because it was about work and you'd like to acknowledge that you're still alive and in fact kind of dumbass in love with nerdy boys who can't quite manage to squelch their Irish accents and less nerdy boys with funny teeth and highly-polished armor, and WTF cut from marble girls who at this point don't even bother to hide their Irish accents, but it's been so long since you raised your head that you're kind of fearful of posting due to the sad, boring sameitude of the answers you're going to have to give to "Where the Hell have you been?" because as always it's fandomhigh?

No, just me?

P.S. Yep, I know my site's semi-down, though I've restored most of the fic.

So it occurred to me that other people besides me and rhi_silverflame are fans of Terry Moore's delightful and infuriating saga of of girls, boys, true love, lack of continuity and the Lesbian Mafia, and might actually have a use for the icons I've created for That Thing We Do. So I started gathering them up.

And they didn't fit in one post.

Or two posts.

So, um, yes. Have 508 Strangers In Paradise icons, plus a Francine mood-theme. Want, take have, adapt. I certainly don't mind being noted in the icon keywords (at least for the ones I did the coloring on) but the only credit I really care about staying with the images is Terry Moore's. Comments delightful but not necessary.

I only rented The Cake Eaters to make caps of KStew not being Bella, but I really liked that film. It's rare that I rent a non horror/suspense flick these days (IDEK. It's just a very long phase.) but I'm glad I saw this one. And I must either own or re-create the soundtrack.

The men in it remind me so much of my grandfather and uncles, not in specific personality but in the setting and language. Sitting at a farmhouse breakfast table drinking re-heated coffee and making deep discussions of whether they're going to switch from All-Bran to Shredded Wheat. (Which actually was my grandpa's cereal of choice.) Bruce Dern's character is... frankly sort of how I wish my grandfather had been, but yeah. Boys being family. And the next person I see bitching about Kristen Stewart's lack of acting skills can bite me, because g'damn does she rock this part, where she plays a girl with a debilitating nervous disorder who manages to get out and have a life in spite of overprotective parents, physical challenges, and the acceptance that it might be a pretty short one.

*is pleased*

And also testing the crossposting from Dreamwidth, but not re-directing comments, because I just don't care. *stays frustratingly apolitical*
