renrenren3: (Glee * Kurt & Blaine)
...it's 1:17am and I'm watching a crappy livestream waiting for Glee. Yep, I caved in. My sister told me it's a bad idea. It probably is. It's not even the Regionals episode, but what can I say. I'm in love with Animal and I'm tired of keeping healthy sleeping habits. I'll pay for this in the morning. Meanwhile, live reactions! And really live this time!

GLEE SPOILERS. AND FLAILING. BUT MOSTLY FLAILING. )

It could be because I missed the first 10 minutes, but I still can't believe it's over. This episode was... IDEK GUYS I HAVE ABUSED EVERY EXPRESSION OF JOY AND SURPRISE ALREADY. 3AM. I'M GOING TO SLEEP AND DREAM OF BABY PENGUINS.

Livewatch!

I'm reduced to a whimpering pile of goo and even hugging Ducky for comfort isn't helping. Why can't it be next week now. I don't even know why I'm so hooked on Glee.

Lots and lots and lots of spoilers for Furt. )

I'll shut up now and go do something productive.

Fucking Real Life

Okay, I'm stressed over this fucking exam. So. Fucking. Much.
There just isn't enough time. And I've tried but I can't concentrate, and I know why. I'm just sick and tired of studying and I don't care about physics and I just want out. London needs to happen. Or something. I need to go somewhere, have a change of pace some time soon, or I'll lose my mind.

The fucking huge fandom

The only thing keeping me sane lately has been tea and Glee. Seriously. (It kind of rhymes but that wasn't the point.) There are no words to describe just how much I love that show and its cliché-riddled cast. I can just turn off my brain and hum along when I know the songs. And I kind of watched 5 episodes today with my sister because I knew stuff would happen on 1x12, and then 1x13 was Sectionals and we just needed to finish, and we were supposed to watch two episodes on Merlin tonight but after the failboat that was 3x09 (though I liked the punch-to-the-arm scene) I didn't really want to watch 3x10 so switching back to Glee seemed like a good alternative and then 1x15 was the Madonna episode... So yeah.

We're officially marathoning it. Late to the party and everything, but I don't really care. I just think I'll stay clear of the fandom because I don't really care for unnecessary drama and I miiight just have some unpopular opinions about characters/ships. (I also want to adopt Brittany, but that's beside the point.)
And I have a new favourite song. Lately I change favourite songs a bit too often. I have the attention span of a deranged rabbit. Unless it's time to watch another episode of Glee. Honestly I think this show might just have brainwashed me into some kind of mindless minion but I don't really care.

The small fandom that makes me happy

I've signed up for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide and I've got a feeling nobody else is offering or requesting Locke Lamora. Which makes me sad, because, seriously. The author is cool too, personal problems aside, he's got a livejournal and pulled his main character's name from a Final Fantasy game and said he was okay with fanfiction as long as he didn't have to read any of it. And he's got the full prologue from his first book online here, I don't remember if it's the part about little Locke or the start of their highly entertaining con, but either way it's a good read.

There are conmen and witty remarks and badassness and female pirate captains. There's also much use of the word "fuck" and similar, but if you read my entries I suppose it doesn't bother you too much. Oh, and he tends to create characters and make you love them and then kill them off brutally. But apart from this, the books are cool. So, uhm. Read them? Please?
renrenren3: (Merlin * gif)
Dreadful news. I have all the symptoms of, gasp!, the common cold. Runny nose, sore throat, fits of coughing, clammy hands... It's terrible. I look awful, but fear not: I have hopes that I might survive.
I'm still feeling incredibly crappy but at least I don't have a high fever like dad. He's been home all week, alternating between sleeping on the couch and calling his colleagues to complain about his health. (My favourite bit is when he complains about having a sore throat in a VERY LOUD VOICE while I'm trying to study.)

Also, I have a new mouse. I'm thankful to my mum for getting me a present I'm likely to use instead of a fugly sweater or something like that, but she picked a cute one instead of one comfortable to use. I'll probably end up going back to my old one, which works just fine. With this one, I keep misclicking like, er, like someone who misclicks a lot.

Anyway, I haven't been posting in a while but hopefully this makes up for it. Over at [livejournal.com profile] merlin_muses posting continues, and with 14 stories posted already out of 56 I thought it was time to rec some of my favourites. They're all Arthur/Merlin, but I swear I did read the others too (apart from Arthur/Gwen, obviously). It's just that Arthur/Merlin fics are more than all the others put together. And, okay, I might also be biased. Hush.

With This Ring * Arthur/Merlin * NC-17 * ~10,000 words
One of my prompts, and I'm so happy it was picked up! Uther is enchanted and forces Arthur and Merlin to marry, immediately. Arthur and Merlin have to go along with it until they find a way to reverse the spell.
This story is all sorts of adorable and sweet and funny. And the last scene between Uther and the boys is priceless. Just... read it ♥

The Apprentice's Tale * Arthur/Merlin * NC-17 * 10,500 words
Modern AU. Merlin and Arthur are both members of the Society for Creative Anachronisms. (If you don't know what that is, don't worry, I didn't either. The author provided helpful links but in short, it's people dressing up in medieval dresses and doing medieval-style stuff like banquets and tourneys.)
Anyway, Merlin and Arthur meet at a week-long camping event, they start off by hating each other and they end up... not hating each other. Obviously. There's also cameos from many other characters: Gwen, Lancelot, Morgana, Gaius...

A Time for Reflection * Arthur/Merlin * PG * 4,573 words
Around harvest time, the tradition of countryman favours cause Merlin to miss home. He makes one himself not intending to give it away, and Merlin has to face his feelings when he finds Arthur with the favour. The Prince wasn’t supposed to find it nor does he know the meaning behind it.
A sweet story. Gets a bit repetitive at the end, but Merlin's adorableness makes up for it.

The Prince and his Catservant * Arthur/Merlin * NC-17 * 8,212 words
Merlin gets turned into a cat and Arthur has to take care of him until the spell wears off. The best part is Arthur imagining what cat-Merlin is thinking. Lovely story, though the ending is a bit abrupt.

Officially, I have the sense of humour of a 5-year-old.

No wait, I'm probably worse, 5-year-olds don't have this tendency to snicker helplessly at bad sex jokes.

...I have the sense of humour of a tasteless pre-teen?



Apart from this, watching Torchwood makes me sad. Damn you spoilers. Damn you writers.

I'M FINALLY DONE!
Fun trivia: I have decided that Bad Romance is the unofficial soundtrack to the fic.
I can't talk about the story now, there's all this ~*~secrecy~*~ thing, but it'll be posted sometime after the 15th at [livejournal.com profile] merlin_muses. Hint: mine is the long stupid one.
Just need to get it back from beta #2 (because ffs if I have to write an ehpeek love story I'm doing things properly) and then I can submit it and kick back.

...or not since I'm already busy with my entry for [livejournal.com profile] thegameison_sh. It's quite the mood whiplash, going from my usual cracky fluff to a dark fic, but I didn't pick the bloody theme. Meh.
And I have a crapload of books that I need to read, like, last summer.
Oh. And was there a meme that was left unfinished at some point?

Also, photos of last weekend made their way on Facebook. I have red eyes. In. Every. Single. One.


ETA; All sent. The good part is, now I'm so used to churning out 2,000 words like nothing, I sat down and wrote the Sherlock fic and didn't even have to think much about it. I still think it's crap, but at least it's done and I can move on to other things, and hopefully next month we'll get a better theme.
renrenren3: (SPN * hug)
❧ What's with my favourite characters always dying? Okay, mostly everyone dies. But still. Dammit. I'm not amused.

❧ What was amusing was, instead, re-watching Merlin 2x04. "Lancelot". I must say I was even less impressed that I was the first time around, Lancelot's own acting is less than stellar and both he and Gwen have really ridiculous lines. And chickification is rampant.
The one fun thing was, in the scene where Arthur and his men find Morgana's party, one of the knights in the background trips over his cloak. It was awesome. I was all, "Hey wait, I thought I saw that guy trip, go back a few seconds," and he really did! We watched it three times. Best. Scene. Ever. I've always said that those cloaks are dangerous. Seriously, what kind of douche would prance around with a cloak (or a dress) several feet longer than normal?

❧ The costumes I'm really looking forward to are those for A Game Of Thrones. The behind-the-scenes clips really have me looking forward to it, seems like they put a ton of attention into details. I'm not sold on Cersei's hairstyle during the tourney, it makes her look so old, but it was just a couple of frames anyway so maybe it'll look better in the finished version. And Jon looks a bit too scruffy, but then again I have this ~*sparkly*~, bishounen-pretty vision of him anyway that's totally my inner fangirl speaking, so I'm not really one to speak. But yep, definitely looking forward to this.

❧ Last three episodes of SPN tomorrow, then I'm all ready for S6. Kind of. And ready to make a start on Doctor Who.
renrenren3: (Kuroshitsuji * bratty Ciel)
I need something like, dunno, an injection of willpower. I can't study at all lately. Wish I could just go and hibernate somewhere.

Oh, and I'm starting to hate both the Kuroshitsuji and the Durarara!! fandoms. Five minutes browsing fics and I feel like running off to ffrants already. Plus, the fanbrats' attitude doesn't help.
Might be because I'm bitter at Kuroshitsuji 2... ridiculous premise, if you ask me. Who in their right mind would kill off the main characters and replace them with suspicious lookalikes? They should have just sticked with the original story.
Anyway, there's now this author who's writing a story with both old and new characters. It feels very... sporkable, and not just because the title is in Japanese. Kanji, to be precise. Straight from Google Translator, I presume, since the grammar makes little sense.
Oh, and a large disclaimer saying how they researched the new characters and crap. Which means, uhm, they watched two minutes of trailer and drooled over the promo images? Yeah, really in-depth research. So, unless they're psychic, their whole characterization is going to fall down like a castle of cards once the new series starts in a couple of days.
But in the end I didn't post to ffrants because deep now my rant is GRAH THE ANIME OF KUROSHITSUJI SUCKED AND NOW THEY'RE MAKING A SECOND SEASON AND THE FANDOM LIKES IT BECAUSE THE FANDOM IS STUPID which isn't really impersonal nor fair. Well it did suck.

And FMA is ending. Actually episode 63 felt like the end already, I guess episode 64 will be just an epilogue. Baww. I don't want it to end. It's the one series I was looking forward to every week.
Now I just have to resist one more week without being spoiled too much. That, and Merlin. Though, haha, whoops, I already know what happens with Morgana. Good job, me. So yep, I'm going to finish Merlin in a couple of days too.
Now I need more shows to watch. Shows I can watch without subtitles would be great too. Why does anyone speak American?
