*raises head*
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.

nerdy boys who can't quite manage to squelch their Irish accents

I dunno, his accent's pretty flawless from where I'm sitting (though admittedly I'm not great with English accents on telly); I had no clue Colin Morgan was from Northern Ireland (my own country!) till I saw it in an interview. (Every person here I've mentioned his nationality too has said some variant on "really? ...God, I bet we know some of his cousins." It's a very small country. We don't get many celebrities.)

Colin is very, very good at it. I've only heard it come out when he's talking superfast. (And admittedly I'm influenced by how often I've heard his real accent in behind the scenes stuff, so I listen for it now. And possibly hear it when it's not there.)

Katie...notsomuch. It's either right on out there, which is lovely and she should just stick with that, or so flattened when she tries that she almost sounds American. So much so that the roomie in fact asked ".....Why is Morgana played by an American?" on first hearing her, and I went "Um. .Multi-cultural cas---- wait, I think she's Irish."

Oh, Morgana's accent is the cause of much hilarity during Merlin time at casa doyle_sb4. At this point they need to concede defeat and throw in a line about her being born across the sea.
