Things I will never get over: THAT THIS HAPPENED

Aaand that's pretty much it. I have the depth of a wading pool, honestly.

Looking forward to sobbing and flailing with you all on Monday. OH GOD.





Happy Monday, lovelies. Hope it's better than this joke.
Dear flist,

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
If you were here,
I'd dry hump you.

Love Kylie.

PS. Here is some gay porn. Because you're worth it, valentines. You're worth it.
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.
Stolen from...I'm going to say by tomorrow morning: absolutely everyone.

If you were to ship me with another fandom person, who would it be, and why?
Post a comment, and I will reply with one or two reasons why I think you're great. In return, you have to post this same meme on your blog and comment for other people. Or not, I'm not the boss of you.

Stolen from everyone even though I've been too scared to comment because I'm afraid they won't have any nice things to say about me /o\ Whatever, whatever, maybe I just really like giving, okay? MAYBE I'M JUST A SELFLESS LOVER.
Hey you *nose bop*

What do you want to talk about?
I don't know what the flip is wrong with me lately, but I've been crying at pretty much the slightest emotion all week. But the happy ones only. I've been in an emo mood for the last couple of days, but the moment anything happy occurs, I'm all SOB SOB GREATEST THING EVER.

I was re-reading In Want Of A Wife by [livejournal.com profile] syllic earlier and it hit me all of a sudden how utterly, utterly meant for each other Merlin and Arthur are. Not just in that story, but in everything; in fic, in the show, in my head. Regardless of circumstance or merit, they're intertwined in such a way that makes it impossible for one to live without the other. That makes true happiness unattainable in anyone else's arms but each other's.

And it's not that this thought has never occured to me before, but the weight of it sort of pulled me under until I was wrecked with the gravity of it all, the enormity of such love.

And then I just felt really stupid because they're fictional characters, but whoever said hormones were supposed to make you rational?

So anyway, that set me off all afternoon, like a[n] [in-dire-need-of-a-mood-stabiliser] boss. Couple that with unnecessary repeats of my dead!Arthur fanmix and this fanvid of Bradley and Colin that [livejournal.com profile] rebbeile found, and today has just been flipping marvelous.

In other failings, somewhere in between being a perve and rejoicing that other people are just as pervy as I am, I forgot to thank [livejournal.com profile] lemniciate for coming up with a couple of the questions in the HARDEST POLL EVERRR (if you haven't voted, what, what, WHAT is wrong with you, you righteous bastards), after incessant nagging from me earlier that morning. SO THANK YOU, YOU MORALLY DUBIOUS WENCH.
So. Is there anyone on my flist NOT doing the Big Bang?

/dregs-of-society brofist?

But I am really excited for those people attempting it. Write hard, you sexy things, write haaaard. How are you all feeling? Confident or are you dreading it yet?

If the word limit had been 20k and I had been feeling particularly insane, I might have given it a whirl, but for 30k, I know there's no point, it just wouldn't happen. STILL, I am doing my bit, cheerleading for the Divine Miss Jenn, [livejournal.com profile] lemniciate, which has all been rather exciting - it's like having a backstage pass for your favourite band.

3.30am, I should probably head to bed. MAYBE. But it's so hotttt. Oh, that's right. Four t's. It's that bad.
HELLO MY LOVELIES, just a quick howdy doody and an early HAPPY CHRISTMAS to those who celebrate it and HAPPY DECEMBER 25th to those who don't.

Do we do sappy posts now or New Years? IDK, but anyway, I love you all, blah blah blah, ~feelings, etc ♥
So, you've all seen THE PIC. It's been reblogged by just about every Merlin fan on your flist, so obviously I'm not going to do the same, that would just be a waste of time.


And so, because of this, I just spent the entire afternoon on AIM with Julia, aka [livejournal.com profile] rayslady, creating the best fic idea in the universe. I'm so sorry to every other fic idea I've ever had, but you are now invalid until I have this in my life.

How it went down )


(Via [livejournal.com profile] buddug_92 @ [livejournal.com profile] shapingdestiny)

Have you ever been dragged along to a dinner party where all the guests are couples and you're forced to sit through insufferable amounts of smugness and endless talk about minibreaks or anniversary gifts? Have you ever been in the same room as people calling each other hideous endearments like 'pumpkin' or 'turtledove' with NO sense of irony? Have you ever had to sit by helplessly and watch your once independent friend 'like' every staus their boyfriend/girlfriend writes on Facebook?

Then THIS FIC is the fic for you.

Julia, aka [livejournal.com profile] rayslady, is the most incredible writer of humour I think the Merlin fandom has. She has this knack for writing instantly quotable lines, clever turns of phrase you kind of want to put on an icon because you know you'll giggle EVERY TIME you read it. Her characters are clear and diverse, their dialogue witty and real, and for a humourous fic, there is a real kick of emotion that sneaks up on you and nudges you in the back of the knee so your leg collapses.

I can't rec this enough.
Hello there, HELLO, how are you?

One more night of housesitting and then I'm done! I'm sure I'll be whinging in a week about how I need to get away but seriously, I miss my own bed more than what I feel is natural.

I was going to make this into a proper entry but I'm tired (I have no recollection of my alarm actually going off this morning which means I turned it off while I was still TECHNICALLY SLEEPING) and the cleaner is here talking my head off (you are lovely, dear, but I am not a conversationalist), so I'll just skip to the important stuff: pimping.

I don't know if I properly thanked those people who left me recs and whatnot when I was feeling all wah-everybody-hates-me the other week, so THANK YOU, YOU WONDERFUL HUMAN BEINGS. [livejournal.com profile] wholly_crepe, owner of my heart, soul and a fabulous username, actually wrote me comment fic where Gwaine is a sly fellow who wants Merlin and Arthur to live in GAY LOVE forever. AND THEY DO. GO READ IT NOW or suffer the unfortunate state of being that is before you knew that yeah, duh, of course Gwaine totally does yoga, how did I not think of that before?

And then, in the early hours of this morning, I had the pleasure of doing beta work on the short fic Oh Fine Thing, We'll Matter Tomorrow by [livejournal.com profile] lemniciate aka [livejournal.com profile] kelene aka writer of one of my most favourite Merlin rps fics EVER (Your Movements are Irregular (But My Gravity is Constant)). Go read it and love it, it is fabulous!

And dude, l-o-l, in linking that I totally just noticed the tag +campaign for badass colin activate! and YES. F-list, we have decided there needs to be more fic in which Colin wields a weapon, wears a sharp suit and maybe even drives a really hot car, so, you know, get on that, guys. Badass!Colin is sorely needed for Bradley's pleasure.

See you guys on Merlin day ♥
Watching the Commonwealth Games coverage and guess what song is playing, Merlin fans?


You're The Voice will never not be relevant to your interests, so shut up, this totally deserved its own entry.

PS. [livejournal.com profile] rayslady: A few more sentences done although they are at a completely different stage of the fic and it never bodes well when I don't write a story in order. A writing partner would make this so much easier, I'm just saying.
HOME FOR A NIGHT, I AM EXCITE (and rhyming).

My visit is only tempered by the fact that last weekend my computer blew up, but at least I have my shitty, old laptop.


Firstly, birthday wishes! A belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY LUCIOUS LADY to [livejournal.com profile] plasticprincess and a very early HAPPY BIRTHDAY, YOU WONDERFUL WOMEN to [livejournal.com profile] xxkezziexx and [livejournal.com profile] amazonbard88! I hope everyone's day was/is fantabulous ♥

Next, [livejournal.com profile] rayslady wrote me comment fic and what can I say? It is Bradley, it is Colin and it is them lazing in bed and discussing Brideshead Revisited, so it goes without saying that it's prettty much 100% win all around. GO LOOK NOW. My love for Julia borders on downright disgusting, I swear.

Oh! WHY OH WHY did the beeb stop releasing Bradley and Colin's quests on my Friday nights and instead put them on on Saturdays? I HAD A HAPPY, ORDERLY ROUTINE - a little of the boys on Friday night to lead into a lot of the boys on Saturday night, it was perfect. NOW I'M SUFFERING A HAPPY OVERDOSE EARLY ON SUNDAY MORNINGS WHEN I WOULD MUCH RATHER BE CHILLING IN BED, DOING THE WHOLE "SLEEPING" THING. MY LIFE, GUYS, MY LIFE. IT IS HORRIBLE.

Housesitting resumes again tonight, solidly for the next month, but I'll be home on weekends <3

Parting gifts:

Via [livejournal.com profile] ontd_merlin - Catchy, addictive lulz.

And brought to my attention by the gorgeous [livejournal.com profile] readvacancy, Pride & Prejudice, Merlin-style:

Love you guys, you're an amazing flist ♥
How are you all today? Have the Merlin fans on my flist recovered from the exciting events of yesterday? Trailer stuff under here )

Now, if only someone would leak the CC Deathly Hallows footage, I could die a happy woman.

Other stuff:

*Went op shopping on the weekend, turned out to be fruitless though, I only picked up a few cookbooks.

*Family gathering on Sunday went swimmingly, all my cooking turned out fine.

*[livejournal.com profile] rayslady's postcard finally came! Actually, funny story, we were chatting on AIM today and she asked me if it had arrived yet and just as I was replying no, my Nan walks in with the mail and hands it to me. Am now convinced Julia is hiding outside in the bushes, plotting to kill, dismember and/or rape me. YEAH, I'M ONTO YOUR GAME.

*Arcade Fire's new album - I've given it a few listens and I'm still not sure what to make of it. Has anybody else listened yet? What do you think? It's a lot more poppy than I've ever heard them play. I almost thought I'd got the wrong album when the first few chords of The Suburbs played. I don't know. I don't not like it, it's just not what I'm used to hearing.

*A Very Potter Sequel was fantastic and everything I wanted in a follow up, I love those guys so much. I can't say if I liked it better than AVPM, but Lucius Malfoy is my new favourite thing, I haven't lol'ed that hard in ages.

*Is anyone good at layouts? I want a new one, I hate the width in this one. Alternatively, does anyone know a good layout comm?

HP meme, days 11-15 )
In a ridiculously happy mood tonight. Point form power!

*Bought myself some userpic space today, go see my new ones!

*Posted Bradley/Colin porn yesterday in case you missed it.

*[livejournal.com profile] rayslady and I should be taken out to a meadow and shot, as we quite honestly have no dignity left after we spent a good hour discussing what Bradley would be like if a) he was ill or b) he was pregnant. I wish I had NOT JUST CLOSED THE CHAT WINDOW LIKE A DICKHEAD THOUGH.

*There's been talk of a love-fest meme for the Merlin fandom going around, someone's doing this right? We need a big, gay orgy of love!

*Big family get together at my house this weekend, I'm very excited! I'm completely in charge of the cooking for the first time, so that should be VERY COOL/STRESSFUL.

*Any Wii games you'd rec? I finished Lego HP last week (frikkin' sweet btw) and I'm gonna trade it for something. But WHAT, is the question.

HP meme, days 5-10 )
