dosciencetoit: (Once and Future King)


When I first joined LJ, I was a die hard Merlin/Arthur fangirl, and I only got into other shows and fandoms during the hiatus this year...

That said, parts of the third season of Merlin make me very angry. I've started hating the appearance of Gwen (though I still love Gwen/Lancelot).

Worse, though, is that I watched last weeks episode and found myself shipping Merlin/Gwaine.

I feel like I'm comitting some kind of blasphamy.

If last week was marked by season permieres and good lab results, this week was marked by a lack of sleep, bad writing and good lab results.

I'll take one out of three. My supervisor is happy with me.


But seriously, if I have to put up with much more bad writing, I'm going to end up doing something drastic. I know I'm not great, but I at least have a good grasp on grammar and verb tense...

And, since this post can't be entirely bad, here's some more of that meme I keep forgetting about.

Day 15 - What is your favorite real life pairing?

I'm going to go with an unusual response and say Misha Collins and his wife Victoria. I heard rumours that she's the one responsible for the questionable awesome photos Misha posts on twitter. I just feel like they have a really fun relationship.

Day 16 - What is the absolute worst pairing?

I could put together quite the list here, but I'll focus on the word absolute to narrow it down. I actually had to think about it for longer than I expected. Arthur/Gwen wins, because they seem so forced by the writers. There are a lot of pairings I dislike, but I can actually see how it happens. With Arthur and Gwen I feel like the writers thought "Crap! There was supposed to be some sort of romance between Arthur and Gwen. We've been pandering to the Arthur/Merlin fans so much we forgot. Maybe if we throw it in now, they'll forget about that, and we can get back to Arthurian legend." Except that Merlin is the biggest bastardization of Arthurian legend I've ever seen, so it comes out ass backwards.

Day 17 - A pairing you thought would never work out, but did?

Rose and the Doctor. I thought that Rose and nine were very platonic, but that Rose and Ten would never quite get that chemistry back. I finally caved and watched season two of Dr. Who after watching Torchwood (because I wanted more, but didn't want to see CoE quite yet), and I was pleasently surprised. I might be one of the few people who actually really liked Rose/Alternate!Ten. It's pretty much the only way they could be happy together.

Day 18 - What is the cutest pairing?

Mikey and Martha, or Tosh and Owen. I was a little giddy with the first, and really sad that the second never happened in canon.

Remaining Days )

I may have developed a second OTP, thanks to my very awesome, very Brittish friend. The same friend, in fact, who confirmed my love for Merlin. I'm going to have to divide my time between writing Merlin and Torchwood fanfic now.

The change in the banner is to reflect this.

[livejournal.com profile] davidbrider made me this video for the [livejournal.com profile] merlin_santa gift exchange.

Come With Me Where the Magic Is

I asked for a Merlin fan vid to anything by Sonata Arctica, and this definately exceeded my expectations :)

dosciencetoit: (Shifty)
For [livejournal.com profile] queenklu, from [livejournal.com profile] notragicmercury, written for [livejournal.com profile] merlin_santa
[livejournal.com profile] queenklu wanted Merlin/Arthur, with a dash of Merlin/Will for the jealousy, and a huge, heaping cup of “somethingthe magic made them do it.” This is what spewed forth. I think it might be overly influenced by the angst in season two.
AN: This was supposed to be both longer and shorter than it turned out to be. I have the sneaking suspicion that if this is well received it’s going to be expanded for background and further conclusion, and Merlin’s POV will be added.

Rating: Hard NC-17
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin

Summary: AU. Merlin is taken in by Strathclyde’s King, Ceretic, as a child, where he is given the opportunity to practice magic, and is eventually given a place as court advisor. Arthur and Merlin meet when Uther and Ceretic enter into negotiations for an alliance, and Arthur is quick to pick up on the fact that there is something about Merlin.

AN: I'm hoping to sit down this week and get the rest of this series written up. I really want to get onto other things (like Torchwood, which I've recently discovered, and AU!Merlin, and Torchwood/Merlin crossovers). I promised myself I would finish this before I started anything new. As soon as that's done, I should be able to post one a day.

I'm both anticipating and dreading the end of this season. I don't know how to handle 8 months without Merlin. I had trouble this past year, and I wasn't even into the fandom then >.>

Mostly, I'm just happy with the drabble in the centre. Aparently I can't get away from 100 word shorts.

AN2: I'm not entirely happy with the way this turned out. For once there was far too much to say to fit into 100 words. I'm thinking it's time for another interlude, either Gwen or Lancelots POV... Also, I actually wrote down the map of the remainder of the drabbles (minus interludes), and there are 10 parts left o.O I never intended it to go on for so long. To top that off, I've signed up for [livejournal.com profile] 10iloveyou, and [livejournal.com profile] merlin_santa.

OTP is eating my brain.

So, I'm (hopefully) going to take on the 10iloveyou's challenge over at [livejournal.com profile] 10iloveyou. I did the [livejournal.com profile] stagesoflove challenge a few years ago under a different user name, and it was a fair bit of fun.

I've chosen the Hurt/Comfort Prompt for Merlin and Arthur.

1. Fear 6. Death
2. Addiction 7. Apart
3. Regret 8. Coward
4. Rain 9. Broken
5. Together 10. Your choice


Wish me luck :)
