Look at that faaaaaace.

We've had relatives and their two dogs staying with us for the past two weeks, It's been noisy and busy and fucking brilliant.

A couple of Monte videos that you don't care about but which I will force you to watch anyway because that's what good mothers do.

So, [livejournal.com profile] carnivors and I were talking this afternoon about dark!Merlin and even though it's not normally something I seek out, I remember reading a really interesting fic ages ago that I wanted to rec to her, only I can't remember the title/author because I live in the dark ages and don't bookmark anything. Does anyone remember a fic in which dark!Merlin and Arthur are having sex and Merlin destroys the world at the end? And Uther may or may not get maimed/killed in the middle, but it's entirely possible I'm thinking of something else here?

I had a looksie in the non-con tag on mxa this arvo until I was unfairly yet understandably distracted by come-addict!Arthur fic, so if anyone could help me out, that would be super. You would get a gold star and everything.

Oh, okay, and Merlin this coming week? Aaaargh, excitement/reservation.

Today I am in love with this song: Can't Fish - Pete & the Pirates.

And Monte continues to be a treasure, I love his itty bitty face even if he doesn't let me sleep in of a morning.

Here he is trying to work out why yummy-looking berries no go in mouth.
ETA: That's some unfortunate USB cable placement there.
Thing One! Birdie finally has a name. It was a close and headache-inducing process but I finally decided on Monte. It's Monty, but pretentious.

Look at him judging your lack of wealth. What a snob.


Thing Three! Colin Morgan will be in my country in November.

Um. United Kingdom? Can we keep him? Pleeeease? We promise to take good care of him! We'll feed him and take him for walks EVERY DAY.

Thing Four! I don't think I'll go (although [livejournal.com profile] amazonbard88 is threatening to badger me until I do) because it's not really my thing, but he will be an hour away from me. AN HOUR.

Thing Five! I don't have a thing five, but if I did, it would be amazing, trust me.

Thing Six! How are you? Are you well?
1) Hey to my new friends who came via the M/A friending meme, I'm excited to have new people to squee with, especially because,



4) So, new people, you can find me on tumblr here, Last.fm here and my Pottermore username is QuaffleRiver103. Feel free to add me anywhere, just let me know who you are so I can friend you back.

5) I got an early birthday present today! Around Christmas last year, I looked after a budgie/parakeet belonging to a friend and I fell in love with it, it was so lovely. So of course I decided I wanted one too. The same friend happened to know a breeder and today we went to have a look and I came home with a six-week-old, most-likely-boy. It's so precious, ugh, I want to SQUEEZE IT, but Lovely Budgies informs me that's NOT the thing to do. Go figure.

HELP ME WITH NAMES PLEASE. Someone told me it was going to be a girl, so I was all set to call it Maeby (and I was going to teach it to say "marry me!" and it was going to be ADORABLE, YOU HAVE NO IDEA) but now that it is probably a boy, I'm at a loss. Don't think Merlin didn't cross my mind, yeah, but I was judged harshly by all :( My family have no sense of gay destiny.
My beautiful old dog, Penny, died yesterday afternoon.

She was 14. My family used to be into greyhound racing and she was the last dog we ever owned and raced. She won a few things but wasn't particularly great, so we retired her and brought her home, where she had a comfortable life napping, eating and napping some more.

Greyhounds are one of the most warm, relaxed, easy-going dogs you could ever hope to own. If you're in the market for a new pet, I highly recommend checking out the ex-racing dogs at an adoption agency.
I recently spent a week in Brisbane housesitting for my aunt and uncle, and I just finally got around to uploading a couple of videos of the furry monsters I had to look after;
