GAIZ! GAIZ! MORE PROMO PHOTOS FROM MERLIN 3X13 HAVE SURFACED AND YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS!

THERE'S ALSO ONE WITH THE KNIGHTS + MERLIN, FOR THOSE OF US WHO'VE BEEN WONDERING WHERE HE WAS!

CLICK CLICK CLICK! )


Also I've started watching The Vampire Diaries in the hope it'll distract me from the sad, sad lack of Glee until next week.
So far it's... meh. Apart from Damon, who saved two episodes just by showing up and trolling everyone else. And Edward Stefan needs to stop frowning at the world and try some other expression. He might want to look dark and broody, but I think he's just constipated. Also I can't watch him make that face any more without laughing, and since he does that face all the time... yeah, I laugh in all of his scenes.
But even tropes says that it gets better after episode 4 or 5, so I'll go watch the next episode now.

THERE WAS ALSO SOMETHING ELSE I NEEDED TO SAY BUT I'VE BEEN HOPELESSLY DISTRACTED. FFFFFFF BOYS.

So. I'm done posting the fic. I'm done posting the fanmix. I'm officially done with everything Woo-related. Damn, why didn't I think of making a Woo tag? I think I'm out of excuses and I should start working on some new project. Any new project. I have too many.

Anyway, I took the chance to gather all my plot bunnies together. They're really a lot. I love them all, of course, you can never have too many plot bunnies.
So, uhm, you get to tell me what to do. I expect about two people to take part in this poll, one of them being me, so it's your once in a lifetime chance to influence me FOREVER!
Also there's still a couple of minutes before dinner and I was bored.

[Poll #1646368]


Yeah, the Merlin/Power Rangers manip didn't make the poll because I'M DOING IT ANYWAY. It's srs bsns.

Also ffff when does Glee air? I need a new episode. Or fic recs. Or both.
renrenren3: (Merlin * woo)
WARNING: EXCESSIVE HOTNESS. Also Merlin S3 spoilers. But, honestly, you need to see this photo if you haven't already. )

I DON'T EVEN KNOW ANY MORE. THERE WAS SOME STUFF I NEEDED TO POST ABOUT REAL LIFE AND THINGS THAT SEEMED IMPORTANT BUT I'VE DECIDED THAT MY MAIN PRIORITY RIGHT NOW IS FLAILING AND TRYING TO REMEMBER HOW TO BREATHE.

HOW DO YOU EVEN BREATHE.

THIS IS JUST.

IDK.

I'LL BE IN MY BUNK.

Stuff.

FIRST OF ALL WELCOME EVERYONE FROM THE CRAZY [livejournal.com profile] merlin_land_ot FRIENDING MEME! I'm totally friending everyone I wasn't already friends with because it was the greatest thing ever.

And speaking of memes, since I was talking about this with Jen earlier:
1. Make a list of 15 characters.
2. SHOW THAT LIST TO SOMEONE AND YOU DIE.
3. Let the people of your FList comment one (1) number and one song they've chosen.
4. WITHOUT SHOWING YOUR LIST, write something about the character, using the song to inspire yourself.
5. You done? Good. Now you can go and show which character or couple it was.
6. It's a meme with a twist!!

Yeees, it's the one I've already posted before but since I only got one reply (#13) and I've friended like 12 new people since then I figured it might be worth a shot to try and get your interest again. The fandoms are Merlin, Doctor Who, Torchwood, SPN, The Big Bang Theory, Inception, ASOIAF, Temeraire, Locke Lamora. And also Castle which I totally forgot about.
HIZA I SWEAR YOUR FICLET IS COMING! Kinda sorta.

#14 is still open! Not that you probably know that character anyway. :|

List! )

ALSO EVERYONE SHOULD JOIN [livejournal.com profile] sherlockmas BECAUSE I SAY SO AND BECAUSE I'M ENTERING TOO MANY EXCHANGES AND I NEED SOME COMPANY IN MY DESCENT INTO MADNESS.

And no, I still haven't watched Merlin, though I did watch SPN but I keep forgetting to post about it because I find the vampire plot kinda boring. Also watched Children of Earth today. Russel T. Davies owes me three hours of my life back. And I'm just 4 episodes away from finishing Doctor Who S5, what am I going to do after? D:

Oh, I see it's midnight right now. Here, have a totally useless manip:
renrenren3: (SPN * hug)
Don't you just hate it when you read and re-read a fic, and have it betaed, and then have it betaed by someone else just to be 100% sure, and then you read it again a couple of weeks later and find there's still a couple of typos that somehow managed to elude you?

It drives me mad.


And here's the weekly dose of spoilerific squee. )
renrenren3: (Merlin * woo)
...MEME TIME!

Ah, first of all, welcome all new friends from the friending meme! ♥ I actually made some new friends this time, maybe because since it was my meme I felt I couldn't just lurk like I usually do. Uhm, yay me. So the first entry you'll get from me is something with a misleading title that's actually a meme.
Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] hiza_chan because she's like the queen of memes or something:

1. Make a list of 15 characters.
2. SHOW THAT LIST TO SOMEONE AND YOU DIE.
3. Let the people of your FList comment one (1) number and one song they've chosen.
4. WITHOUT SHOWING YOUR LIST, write something about the character, using the song to inspire yourself.
5. You done? Good. Now you can go and show which character or couple it was.
6. It's a meme with a twist!!


Fandoms are: Merlin, Doctor Who, Torchwood, SPN, The Big Bang Theory, Inception, ASOIAF, Temeraire, Locke Lamora. I've even tried to pick characters outside of my comfort zone. It is a pain to leave out Arthur and Petyr...

Maybe this'll get me writing before the next round of [livejournal.com profile] thegameison_sh and the start of [livejournal.com profile] camelot_fics.

Inception

So, I FINALLY watched Inception. And I gotta say, that film's totally worth the hype. I'm used to getting disappointed after waiting too long for something (like with Deathly Hallows, or more recently the SPN premiere) but this time all I have to say is... awesome.

I kind of figured out halfway through that spoilery bit for the poor souls who haven't watched it yet but plan to ) but it was still awesome. Like, in some parts I blacked out and missed some seconds of film because I was busy thinking "crap this is really awesome".

Also, Arthur's fight scene. Just Arthur's fight scene. Zero gravity. Badass. Enough said.

I don't think I ship anyone, not really, which is kind of surprising coming from me. Well I might be shipping the couple sitting beside me, they seemed nice and laughed at the right moments and went "oh crap" at the right moment at the end. But that's just me confusing porn with real life as usual. Anyway. Not really that much shipping material, we only really got Cobb's backstory and personality. Everyone else is just an accessory. On the other hand, this means any pairing is free go should anyone be so inclined.

And apparently the fandom did, which is great, but honestly I'd be more interested in the possibilities of mindscrew gen fic. Because, seriously, I haven't seen such potential for world-building since The Matrix. This is, basically, The Matrix on more levels. Awesome. I'm saying "awesome" a lot today, aren't I? I kind of wish, dunno, there should be a TV series exploring the personalities of the other team members (especially Arthur) and about other jobs and stuff. But that's just wishful thinking. I'm afraid what we will get is Inception 2, which will be crap like most sequels and force me to discontinue it.

Meanwhile I'm all hyped up and I'm going to download it in English while I wait for the DVD to come out (needs moar wintermas presents) because I want to listen to everyone's original voices. And watch it again. And then write some fic. Gah, the world-building possibilities! Just think of the possibilities!


Now for something freakish and loosely related

We (me and my brother and my sister) went to a late afternoon showing and it finished late so we went to the McDonald's next to the cinema. They were redecorating or something, half of the restaurant had been walled off and it seemed all crammed despite it being emptier than usual. There was nobody at the counter when we arrived while usually there's a long wait.

The bathrooms were in the walled-off section so my brother and sister went to investigate while I placed our orders (3 McChicken menus with fries and cola - we're boring, boring people). And while I was there a couple of guys got in line behind me and they actually tried to hit on me. It was kind of unreal, considering that they seemed straight out of a bad comedy movie, including elbowing each other conspiratorially and offering to carry my tray. Dude. Seriously? Seriously. To which, having watched Gintama, I said "No, thank you!" - except I'm not a character from Gintama so I couldn't punch him. Instead I gave him my trademark creepy grin and hope he'll be as creeped out as I was.

I'd have thought it was some kind of joke, only afterwards I saw one of the guys hitting on another two girls. So, freaky stuff. The subject of today's dinner was, strange stuff is happening so maybe we're actually in a dream. Also awesome film. Also the fries are cold and taste awful. Also awesome film.
Also, the popcorns and/or the fries were way too salty and I think I had a cut on my lip or something because it's still itching. Damn junk food. Damn delicious junk food.


SPN 6x02

Spoiler for the newest episode of SPN )


Merlin Gwaine

Just as planned, today's newsletter is full of shirtless gratuitous fanservice Gwaine. He's in about a dozen fics with different pairings. I've seen Merlin and Gwen (which kind of make sense), Morgana and Lancelot (which don't really make sense but should have been expected), Leon (which makes no sense at all and wtf fandom I know you love him and I do too but do you have any justification apart that Leon's pretty?)... but no Arthur.

Nobody has written Arthur/Gwaine yet, and somebody needs to rectify this mistake. Needs more pretty shirtless boys. Needs new OT3, maybe, since the old one kind of shriveled up and died when Morgana went dark side.
Speaking of Arthur. I feel oh so tempted to add Gwaine to my [livejournal.com profile] merlin_muses fic, and the only thing stopping me is that I set it before S3 because otherwise I'd have to remove Morgana. Sad, sad thing.

Merlin 3x04

renrenren3: (Merlin * gif)
Last night was... urrgh. On the plus side I kept my promise of one drink only (almost) and didn't get drunk. On the minus side I didn't get drunk so I was actually awake all evening. Night. Whatever. Went to bed at 3am. The company wasn't bad but I knew only about 3 people out of 20, and they all knew each other really well, so I had lots of moments when I just stood around wondering what the hell I was doing there.

The one good thing that came out of the evening is that after 22 years I finally have a handbag. Like, a proper one where I can put my keys, wallet, phone and everything else. Because apparently social conventions say that if you're a girl you just can't stuff it in your jeans and jacket pockets. I still kind of fail at going shopping, because going shopping for me is something like... What do I need? Handbag, maybe a new shirt. Which shop? Locate closest likely shop. Enter shop. Find item #1. Buy item #1. Rinse and repeat for item #2. Be home in time for tea.

I seriously don't know how people manage to spend a whole afternoon going from shop to shop. Maybe if I went with someone who had the same taste in clothes as me. But that's unlikely, last time I was in a shop with a friend I commented on how ridiculous one of the dresses on display looked, and it turned out that she owned a dress just like that. Yay, foot in my mouth and all that.
On the other hand I can get completely lost in a good bookstore.



Now on to fannish things and squee and not-so-squee. First things first, I just found out about Colin & Bradley's Quest which confirms my opinion that the boys are adorable, funny and slightly mental. Lemurs and Ye Olde English and did Bradley just say "Captain Wow"?

Spoilers for the latest eps of Merlin )



Bleh, I should have made my own tea. My brother has a distressing tendency to leave the water lukewarm, or only fill the mug halfway, or leave the teabag in for too long, or all of these.
I do make tea, usually, but today I got distracted by pretty boys.

Now I'd watch the next ep of SPN since last night I couldn't, but I don't have time because... I'm finally off to watch Inception! It finally premiered here last week. What the fuck Italy, why do you have to be so backwards even with film release dates?
Hope it's as good as everyone makes it sound. Expect more squee later in the day.
