So, the past couple weeks have been a little rough for me. I've been trying to surround myself with as many happymaking things as I can, and I wanted to do a PICSPAM OF AWESOME today, but I kind of ran out of gas, and now I am just sort of flopped here in bed eating Girl Scout cookies. So instead of a giant picspam filled with my deeply insightful commentary (NO REALLY) here are some things that have been making me smile recently :D

Bradley and Colin discussing their upcoming nuptials.


Pretty dimples.


The bestest scruffiest happyface.


The show that almost gave me everything I always wanted.


And the one that finally did.


Hey you guys. I hope you're all having a lovely weekend ♥

So, you guys. Rule Ten is finished. I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MYSELF RIGHT NOW. I have grown ridiculously attached to this story and these boys and I am sort of a mess and WHAT DO I DO NOW SLDKGJSLGJSD HELP SOMEONE HOLD ME. It all started back in January when I had a crappy day and asked my flist to send porn. I had been talking about jailbait Eames and said, and I quote, c'mon fandom, let's see what you got. APPARENTLY SKELLER TOOK THIS AS A PERSONAL CHALLENGE.

Anyway, I've posted several times about how good this fic is for me because of how it hits all of my buttons, but one thing I haven't talked about, and part of what made this whole experience so amazing for me, was the sense of community that surrounded it. Skeller posted that first part in January, and has updated almost every single day since then, which is just really fucking impressive in and of itself. As time went on, the group of followers grew, and there was discussion in the comments, comment fic within the fic, and twitterflail all over the place as we all got more and more invested together. And having all of these conversations and watching the whole story unfold and being part of this whole process - it was just really fucking cool, okay. It's one of those things that just happens that you couldn't plan if you tried, and then when it's over you just look back and say THAT WAS AWESOME. It's one more example of what makes fandom so amazing for me.

I told Skeller at one point that I had developed a Pavlovian response to her BAM tweets (which is how she would let us know there was a new part) but the truth is that the response was to her Twitter icon I AM NOT EVEN KIDDING. She always updated when it was evening for me, and it became this huge part of how I'd unwind from the day. When I'd see a tweet from her in the early evening, I knew she was home from work and that an update was soon on its way, and I kid you not, I would just feel this sense of calm wash over me. THE BELL WAS RINGING, MY DINNER WAS ON ITS WAY.

She said she wrote this fic for me, which is lovely and generous and so very flattering, but I don't think it's altogether true. Yes, it had all of my kinks, which, really, SO FUCKING GOOD FOR ME DID I MENTION THAT. But the thing is, when you dig down underneath all the words (AND THE TYPOS ♥) at the heart of it, this is a love story. And it's one that is constructed with so much care and respect for the characters and the kinks that this is so much more than OH HEY I WROTE THIS FIC FOR YOU BECAUSE I HEARD YOU LIKE THESE THINGS. It's the kind of fic that's messy and intense and smudged with sweat and tears and fingerprints, which maybe sounds a little bit gross, but what I'm trying to say is that there is a lot of heart. THERE IS A LOT OF HEART ♥

And now poor Skeller is suffering from an epic case of top drop after hurting us so good for two and a half months and is in desperate need of some snuggles and cookies, which you should totally give her because she is amazing and deserves them all. Then you should go write some kinky porn. Except Skeller, who should just eat cookies and snuggle. WHAT DON'T LOOK AT ME LIKE THAT SHE WROTE ME 150K OF FIC SHE GETS A PASS ON THIS ONE OKAY.
cherrybina: (jgl unf)
1. First up! Awesome things for sharing:

+ [ profile] recrudescence is writing comment fic in which Arthur gets stoned and tries to talk Eames into fisting him (make sure to scroll down so you see all the parts.) This is amazingly hot for something that has no porn. YET.

+ [ profile] foxxcub wrote bb boys in kindegarten. Adorable beyond words ♥

+ [ profile] kairosx drew a picture of wee Arthur and Eames to go with [ profile] foxxcub's fic, and I actually squeaked when I saw Arthur's outfit :D

+ [ profile] eternalsojourn wrote piano porn that is nice and filthy.

SO MANY THINGS. I was thinking about making a tag for entries that contain comment fic, art, and other assorted goodies and then going back to tag the relevant entries to make them easier to find, but lskgjhsld YOU GUYS. There are so many entries with awesome stuff inside. YOU ARE ALL AMAZING AND I LOVE YOU SO MUCH ♥

2. I am still only sporadically getting comment notifications, so if you're expecting a response on something and I haven't replied, just poke me again. THIS IS NOT COOL LJ. NOT COOL AT ALL.

3. If you haven't been there yet, check out the Merlin fandom Music and Lyrics comment fic fest that [ profile] lolafeist is hosting. Already there is lots of stuff to read!

4. Okay, so JGL. I love his hair like this, not crazy about the neck beard but I can let it slide, the coat is lovely, but can we please talk about the fact that he is WEARING A HOODIE UNDER HIS COAT?


What is going on here )

5. Speaking of boys in hoodies.



Aaaaand that is all! I hope your day is awesome ♥

ETA: [ profile] ilovetakahana wrote Arthur wearing Eames' hoodie :D

[ profile] regicidaldwarf started a HS AU in which Eames gets his tongue pierced \o/

[ profile] adelaide_rain also wrote Eames with a tongue piercing!

[ profile] sometimesalways posted a boys in hoodies picspam, which is probably NSFW due to nipple licking :D
cherrybina: (t-hard jaw)

1. OKAY. Normally I would not lead with Tom Hardy because it just makes everyone go all slghskldghskl then I totally lose you for the rest of the entry. BUT I CANNOT TALK ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE BEFORE THIS INTERVIEW BECAUSE JFC. TOM HARDY. WHAT EVEN.


If you have not yet watched it, you must do so immediately for it is GLORIOUS. Thanks to [ profile] charlidos for the synced high quality version. If this is blocked in your country, you can also watch here.

skjhfakghadl WHERE DO I EVEN START. The giggles, you guys. The ridiculously adorable giggles that I could watch all fucking day. When he said, I'm a sweetheart, I just want people to love me, I think there were ACTUALFAX HEARTS IN MY EYEBALLS ♥___♥ Also, I like how he is all like, sometimes it's nice to go places without your phone since he basically has his phone in his hand in almost every picture ever. And of course when he called Charlotte "monkey" I just about died because THAT IS SO CUTE I CANNOT EVEN. So many hearts ♥♥♥

ALSO. I love Tom Hardy in t-shirts, I really do. You guys know how I give him a pass on basically everything, because, well. TOM HARDY. But that t-shirt that he's wearing looks suspiciously similar to this one. It's a different color, but I think the style is identical. TOM PLEASE EXPAND YOUR T-SHIRT COLLECTION FOR VARIETY AND VISUAL INTEREST OR ALTERNATIVELY JUST GO SHIRTLESS ALL THE TIME BECAUSE I WOULD BE REALLY OKAY WITH THAT.

But really, the most important thing we learn in this interview is that TOM HARDY IS IN GEORGIA AT THIS VERY MOMENT. alskfjsldkghds [ profile] hermette. PLEASE GO GET HIM FOR ME OKAY I WILL BE THERE SOON I PROMISE.

2. Okay, so this gif.


Arthur is impressed. He is also kinda twitchy. IDK WHAT THAT IS ALL ABOUT BUT I FIND IT DELIGHTFUL.


3. So! It feels like everyone is doing the multifandom thing lately. I know there are many of you in Merlin and Inception, and now I am seeing lots of posts about TSN and most recently, The Eagle. And okay, I admit that Jesse and Andrew are ridiculous together with all of the TOUCHING OMG, and Jamie Bell is all sorts of adorable, plus oh hey, JGL's BFF Channing Tatum, but you guys. I am so afraid of new fandoms because trying to balance Merlin and Inception almost broke my brain. However, I am easily swayed by porn and pretty boys, so TELL ME AWESOME THINGS ABOUT YOUR NEW FANDOMS.

4. Stuff I have missed! I am trying really hard to catch up on my flist, but Idk if I will get there, so won't you please share your favorite things from the past few days? Also porn. I have missed porn. LINK ME TO SOMETHING FILTHY PLEASE AND THANK YOU :D

HEY YOU GUYS. I hope your day is awesome ♥

ETA: Happy Endings verse comment fic by [ profile] persephone_il :D
cherrybina: (Default)

1. Okay, so Merlin.

My spoilery nonsensical reaction )

2. JGL continues to melt my heart with this pic of him being silly with his dad


If you do not already follow his tumblr you really should, because it ridiculously adorable, mostly because of his frequent emoticons :D Yesterday, I flailed all over the place when he said, ^____^ Believe in tiny stories… because C'MON HOW CUTE IS THAT.

3. We don't get a lot in the way of canon interaction between Arthur and Eames, but lucky for us, those boys make every second count with their love that shines like a beacon of light, such as the clear significance of Arthur choosing to touch Eames when he pushes the team down the hall.

Yeah, push him just like that )

4. Twitter! There is going to be something more on this later, but for right now, I will just say that if you follow me on Twitter but never say anything, I will forever assume you are a spambot who found me because of my excessive tweets about felching. THAT ACTUALLY HAPPENS A LOT FOR REAL. So, if you are not a spambot and would like to have deep and meaningful conversations about felching over Twitter, just tweet me and let me know :D I am here btw.

5. Poll time? I SAY YES.

[Poll #1653416]

lsdkjgdls;ghj YOU GUYS. I am in a ridiculously cheerful mood right now, and I just want to like shower you all with a thousand kisses and flail around together because HOLY SHIT THERE IS SO MUCH AWESOME EVERYWHERE I CANNOT EVEN DEAL ♥♥♥
cherrybina: (t-hard bunny)
Thanksgiving is one of my very favorite holidays because it has the best food ever, and none of the stress that comes with other holidays. Well, no stress for me anyway since I am not the one cooking, haha. BASICALLY I GET TO EAT A LOT AND BE V.V. LAZY AND WHAT COULD BE BETTER THAN THAT I ASK YOU. But I couldn't leave you with nothing because that would be a very sad day indeed, especially since many of you will not spend the day stuffing your face then lazing about like a very lazy thing. So, how about some Tom Hardy, yes? YES :D

I do actually wish I could put something here that is not slfjhd;hjf;sjs; but that's really all I got right now.



I don't want these pics to ever end, but I heard a rumor (BUT IDK IF IT IS TRUE SO DO NOT TAKE MY WORD ON IT) that Reese left the set because she finished filming her scenes. I have no idea what that means as far as shooting the rest of the film goes, but I am gonna be so sad when it's over :( IT WILL BE SUCH A LONG WAIT FOR THE MOVIE AND I WANT IT RIGHT NOW OKAY. I want interviews and adorableness and Tom being so fucking smart it hurts and I want to see it 3834923045768 times I JUST KNOW IT ALREADY.



Today I shall spend the day twirling in my pretty dress and eating my body weight in stuffing and mashed potatoes and just feeling lovely about the world in general. HAPPY THANKSGIVING YOU GUYS :D Whether or not you celebrate, I am thankful for all of you ♥
cherrybina: (Inception Arthur close up)
Okay so, yeah. TOM HARDY.


watermarks removed by [ profile] credits and originally posted here


No, really. I do. )

In more news of pretty boys being awesome, JGL uploaded a new video to hitRECord, in which he talks about getting back to work and the college tours and some upcoming projects and is just generally adorably squishable.

Oh, bb ♥

ALSO ALSO. ATTENTION [ profile] pennyplainknits, [ profile] puckling, and any other knitters, have you guys seen this?

In what should not be news to anyone, Bradley James glows in the sunshine.


Golden boy )

I just wanted to thank all of you who left me comments and sent me PMs about the new Tom Hardy pics. I am beyond thrilled that Tom makes you think of me :D AND OH MY GOD THERE WAS A PARTY OF AWESOME IN MY INBOX \O/ Happy day-before-Thanksgiving, my lovelies. I don't know about you, but I am thankful for crooked teeth, ridiculous boys, dimples, glow worms, filthy porn, and the bestest flist a girl could ask for ♥


How could I skip this much pretty? )
cherrybina: (Default)
The other day, I posted about how I've heard people say they don't participate because they're intimidated by fandom. I got a couple comments where people mentioned that they sometimes worry that what they say won't be smart enough or interesting enough or flaily enough, so they don't comment at all. My first instinct is to say NO NO THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN, but the thing is, I can't promise that.

My intelligence has been called into question. I've been called legitimately stupid. I've been wanked for excessive CAPSLOCK and smileys :D Someone once said that clicking on my journal is their worst fannish nightmare. Another person said my squee was so irritating that they wanted to STAB ME TO DEATH WITH A UNICORN HORN. So, yeah. No promises from me. This is the internet; someone is always going to think You're Doing It Wrong.

But you know what? I say DO IT ANYWAY. Do it because in fandom, there is room for everything, and more is what makes fandom better. More is what makes fandom AWESOME.

So, I cannot promise what people are going to think, but I can promise what they are going to say, at least here in my journal. This is a squee friendly space every minute of every day in any way you want to do it, without fear of judgment, insults, or wank. And if anyone tries, WELL. Let's just say that while I wouldn't know how to deliver a smackdown if I tried I KNOW SOME PEOPLE WHO DO OKAY AND THEY GOT MY BACK AND BY EXTENSION ALL OF YOURS FOR ALWAYS ♥♥♥
cherrybina: (Bradley and Colin BFI)
Okay, so first things first: MY JOURNAL IS AN EXTREMELY RIDICULOUS PLACE. No, really. Everyone is always welcome to jump in on any thread at any time, and it is never ever interrupting. You do not have to apologize for adding to the flaily madness, nor do you have to apologize if you decide to randomly spam me with links, pictures, porn, etc. Seriously. It doesn't even matter if it has anything to do with the post itself. I've gotten some comments lately along the lines of, "I'm sorry for randomly writing you this comment porn," or, "I'm sorry for posting this hot pic of JGL in your journal," and just. YOU GUYS. WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN. MY JOURNAL IS BASICALLY ONE GIANT NON SEQUITUR FOR REALSIES AND PORN AND PRETTY BOYS ARE ALWAYS ALWAYS WELCOME.

Twitter! So, I am sort of wary of Twitter because I feel like it's a slippery slope for me. One minute I'll be tweeting about deep and meaningful things (HAHA WHAT. IT COULD HAPPEN.) and the next it is all, I JUST SHIFTED ONE INCH TO THE LEFT IN MY CHAIR AND PUSHED MY GLASSES BACK UP MY NOSE. And really, people do not need to read every single thought that goes on in my head, you know? But anyway, you can find me here. Also, if your Twitter name has nothing to do with your LJ name, let me know who you are, or else I will just be v.v. confused WHICH HAPPENS A LOT OKAY.

Moving along, [ profile] bookshop is hosting a second round of the Arthur/Eames fluff meme! I haven't had a chance to read or write anything yet, but that is at the top of today's agenda. THANK YOU AJA FOR BEING SO DEDICATED TO BRINGING MORE FLUFF TO THE FANDOM BECAUSE IT IS MY VERY FAVORITE THING OKAY. Well, after porn, that is. Really, I just want to combine them both forever. Fluffy filth. FLILTH ♥

Aaaand finally, it seems like Bradley/Colin fic has really slowed down recently. I've had this conversation with several people over the past few weeks, but I still do not understand why. Between the fact that a lot of people are frustrated and disappointed with the Arthur/Gwen development on the show, and the continued ridiculous antics of Bradley and Colin every week in the quests, it seems like we have the perfect recipe for AN EXPLOSION OF FIC. And yet. What is going on, you guys?





Is everyone having a lovely Thursday?
cherrybina: (jgl tux)
1. SDLKGHSL MERLIN HAS BEEN RENEWED FOR A FOURTH SERIES! I know you all partied your little hearts out about this yesterday, but I was still kind of flopping around like a limp noodle with a hangover, so I AM PARTYING NOW OKAY PLEASE COME JOIN ME IF YOU LIKE \O/!!! I am so not ready to say goodbye to this show, and more importantly, the fandom, so I am THRILLED to know that I'll have another year of these ridiculous boys in my life.




2. Yesterday, [ profile] leupagus held me hostage in her apartment and refused to let me leave until I watched some of Hawaii Five-0. And HOLY SHIT YOU GUYS. I'm not sure you can actually call that subtext when they are basically three seconds away from making out. Seriously, I was just like WAIT WHAT. DID THAT ACTUALLY JUST HAPPEN? I... think I need to go watch this show now.

3. Tom Hardy/Chris Pine. OKAY OKAY OKAY. So the pictures came out a couple days ago, and yeah, that is a lot of pretty right there in one place. First, I should say that I find Chris Pine extremely attractive. As in, fuck yeah I'd hit it hard. But you guys. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK IS GOING ON WITH HIS HAIR IDEK.


Pretty pretty )

4. I know I have been promising you the Jailbait JGL picspam, but it is not ready because OH MY GOD THERE ARE A LOT OF PICTURES OF HIM LOOKING LIKE AN UNDERAGE RENTBOY JFC. To hold you over, here is a photo of him straddling a metal pole-thingy in which you can see his lovely fingers, and in which he is giving his very best PLEASE COME AND FUCK ME face. For the record, I love that face ♥ ALSO FOR THE RECORD I WOULD TOTALLY FUCK HIM. WHICH I AM PRETTY SURE I ALREADY SAID. A BUNCH OF TIMES.


Because one is not enough )
cherrybina: (Default)
OH HI YOU GUYS. So, fangirl meetup last night was awesome, y/y? Despite the fact that I was fairly intoxicated I don't think I did anything too embarrassing? IF I AM WRONG NO ONE TELL ME JUST LET ME LIVE THE LIE. There was much discussion of assfucking and jizz and rimming and all of the other things that are so important to me. Hopefully I was not too bouncy and loud (SOMETIMES MY RL CAPSLOCK BUTTON GETS STUCK OKAY) and retained some of my dignity. MAYBE D:

Anyway, thank you to everyone who came and made it such an awesome time! If you were there, make sure to head over to [ profile] leupagus' post because it is possible that some of us were too drunk to remember everyone's name. Maybe. UM.

I feel like this post is naked without pretty pictures but I am typing it up ON MY PHONE OMG from [ profile] leupagus' apartment and I can't resize pics on my photobucket app so would probably end up posting a giant picture of JGL's ass or something. Which okay, not a bad thing, but still. I AM TRYING TO WATCH OUT FOR YOUR FLIST OKAY.

That means pretty boys tomorrow. Today, a poll. And JFC if I manage not to fuck it up from my phone it will be a miracle.

[Poll #1635430]
cherrybina: (Default)
OKAY OKAY HI GUYS. I am kind of a mess right now because I have 3847560607 things to do today but I just wanted to tell you these VERY IMPORTANT THINGS okay.

1. RIMMING MEME. Yes, I am linking again because there is still more awesome stuff getting posted practically right this very moment. You guys are all so amazing for making it such a success. SO MUCH DELIGHTFUL RIMMING ♥ The masterlist should be up to date as of now, but if the links are wonky or I missed something, please tell me. Also, [ profile] skellerbvvt is in the process of writing an epic WIP in many parts, in which there is no rimming yet, but there is an excessive amount of food porn, dancing, and a steampunk bistro. HOW IS SHE THAT AWESOME IDEK.

2. Friday means waiting for the next Merlin quest so I can flail about in the ridiculousness that is Bradley and Colin. WHERE IS IT I NEED THOSE BOYS OKAY.

3. I will be away this weekend having an awesome time with fangirls in NYC (if you want to come, see this post for details) but I have been inspired by many of you recently, and am planning a picspam for when I get back called, JAILBAIT JGL: Is he actually legal there? I PROMISE IT WILL BE AWESOME.

4. FINGERS. I love fingers okay. I really, really do. There are just so many interesting things you can do with them, and so many places to put them.

I think it was [ profile] bookshop and [ profile] foxxcub who were talking about how Eames has a very specific oral fixation, and anytime anyone mentions Arthur's ass, his fingers immediately go to his mouth. I AGREE WITH THIS CONCLUSION JSYK.


Other boys with pretty fingers )

cherrybina: (Default)
1. CONFESSION: I have not yet watched yesterday's episode of Merlin. I... cannot even explain what is going on on my flist right now, and to be honest, I am sort of terrified D: WHAT THE FUCK YOU GUYS. As far as I can tell, I need to get really drunk to get through it or want to punch someone in the face after watching it or possibly give up on the show forever or think it is the awesomest thing ever or I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT OKAY D:

2. Everyone should go check out the Not My Fandom Fest hosted by [ profile] pocky_slash because it is hilarious. [ profile] callowyn's take on Inception is so freaking awesome I cannot even deal.

3. Let's talk about Earl, shall we? As some of you know, I have had a thing for Earl for awhile now. I believe it was [ profile] froggie who first introduced me to the fabulousness that is a gold gentleman's pleasure object and matching cufflinks, and I desperately wanted fic with him in it, but it just didn't really fit in with Merlin. Imagine my delight when Inception came along in which cufflinks are canon for fuck's sake. But here is another confession for you today: When I finally wrote Earl fic, I took some ~artistic liberties~ with the dimensions. HE IS REALLY NOT THAT BIG. I mean, I don't actually know how big he is, since its given in centimeters, which is all blah blah blah to me and I cannot be arsed to convert it, but I sort of had the feeling that he wasn't this, like, GIANT PLUG or something. But whatever, I am all in favor of stretching the truth in fic in order to, you know, stretch other things with shiny gold buttplugs. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know in the interest of full disclosure :D

4. But speaking of Earl and speaking of really big buttplugs, in the comments of yesterday's post, I talked about my plans for a sequel to Earl fic, because I am not ready to let go. Basically, it goes like this: Eames decides to buy Arthur a matching plug, but after thinking about it, he realizes that Arthur's ass is too precious for gold, so he has a PLATINUM BUTTPLUG custom made. And because it's tailor made for Arthur's magnificent ass, it can be as big as I Eames wants. AND, WELL, WE ALL KNOW THAT EAMES IS NOT AFRAID TO DREAM REALLY FUCKING BIG AM I RIGHT. So he gives it to Arthur, and Arthur is like, what the fuck were you thinking this is HUGE, but Eames is just like, come on baby, you know I'd never give you anything you can't take, and I know you can take it for me. I'll make it so good for you, I promise. And Arthur is like asdfghjkl;, and Eames is like, AW YEAH. And then, you know. EAMES FILLS ARTHUR'S PRETTY LITTLE ARSE WITH PLATINUM BECAUSE ARTHUR DESERVES NOTHING LESS, Y/Y/MFY??

5. This one is REALLY IMPORTANT okay. I am going to be in NYC next weekend hanging out with [ profile] leupagus and [ profile] merelyn (and hopefully [ profile] puckling!) On Saturday, October 23, there is going to be some sort of fangirl meetup some time at some bar in Manhattan. Which, is incredibly specific, I know. BUT I AM TOTALLY NOT IN CHARGE OF PLANNING OKAY. But the point is, everyone should come! I promise it will be awesome, and by awesome I mean, I will get drunk and force you to listen to my super serious business thoughts about assfucking. AND THEN I MAY POSSIBLY BREAK YOUR TOOTH. I AM JUST WARNING YOU ALL UP FRONT. But still! AWESOME. So, everyone go fill out this poll, and then come hang out :D ETA: The poll is on dreamwidth, so if you don't have an account there, just let me know if you're interested in coming and I can make sure you get all the details. And really, you should come. ALL OF YOU.

6. I am crying a little bit because Tom Hardy was voted off in [ profile] staraflur's hot person poll. WHAT THE FUCK YOU GUYS. Whatever, more for me.


Mmmm, those are really nice pants.

cherrybina: (Default)
1. Saturdays are exciting because YAY NEW MERLIN \o/ but also sad because I'm not able to watch until late at night, so I miss all the parties. EVERY TIME :(( But I totally live vicariously though you guys scrolling through my flist on my phone and flailing at all the sparkle text and keysmashes :D

2. Please stop what you are doing right now and go read this insanely hot Arthur/Eames porn by [ profile] rageprufrock. HOLY SHIT. Pru sent this to me a while back, and when I lost my rings last week, I distracted myself from my impending freakout by reading it over and over on my phone. PORN IS VERY SOOTHING TO ME OKAY.

2. So, okay. After writing my [ profile] camelotsolstice fic last December, I was just totally burnt out. I'm not sure what happened, but I just couldn't even open a new doc for the longest time after that. And in eight months, I wrote a handful of PWPs, none of which even hit the 2k mark. After I saw Inception, I wrote a total of 8k in a week, more words than I'd posted the entire year. What I am saying is, the reason I haven't written Merlin fic in so long is not because of Inception, it's really not. The first half of this year I just... couldn't write. And during that time, my squee about the boys and the show hadn't faded in the slightest, so I really don't have any idea what was going on, just that the words weren't there. So, when Inception came along, it wasn't that I stopped writing Merlin/Arthur so I could write Arthur/Eames, it was that suddenly I COULD WRITE AGAIN AT ALL, and I have to tell you that that feels amazing.

I don't think I'm done writing Merlin fic, and there is NO WAY that I am done with the fandom, but I struggled a lot with writing this year, and it was just so frustrating. And now I am writing again, and the words are just coming and coming, and rather than having a paralyzing fear of opening a doc, I am pulling over on the side of the road to scribble down the words in my head. If I could have willed myself into this state with Merlin fic, I would have done it during all of those months when I couldn't get anything out. Whatever it means, and whatever it doesn't, I AM HAPPY :D

3. Thank you to whoever started a thread for me at the anon love meme, and to everyone who commented. I feel weird even linking to it because I already get so many amazing comments from you guys every day, but I wanted to say thank you because it was a very lovely thing to do ♥

4. Every day I go to the same coffee shop, and every day I order the same triple shot medium nonfat latte. All of the baristas know me and I know all of them, and we always talk for a bit and it is all very fun and pleasant and enjoyable. Sometimes I go through the drive-through because I am EXTREMELY LAZY, and yesterday when I placed my order at the speaker, they were like OH HAI BINA. And then when I got up to the window, two of them came over and were like, "you know, you can just pull up and say it's Bina, and we will know exactly what you want." But you guys. I CAN'T DO THAT. What if I pull up all like OH HI THIS IS BINA and the person just says, " that supposed to mean something to me?" THAT WOULD BE SO EMBARRASSING D:

5. Today is sunny and going up into the 70s which is far too warm for October. However, I am defiantly planning on wearing tights and a corduroy dress because MY FALL WARDROBE WILL NOT BE DENIED. My dress is kind of boring, but that is what plaid tights and red mary janes are for, yes? YES.





cherrybina: (jgl mmm)
1. I have mentioned before that [ profile] skellerbvvt writing random comment porn for me is one of MY VERY FAVORITE THINGS EVER. I HAVE MENTIONED THIS A BUNCH OF TIMES OKAY. Well, guess what? She wrote Arthur/Eames, and it is filthy and delightful and has so many things I love because she is shamelessly exploiting my kinks and it is basically an ode to Arthur's magnificent ass and IT IS EIGHT COMMENTS LONG AND I NEVER WANT HER TO STOP. So go check it out \o/

2. Ticky boxes v. radio buttons. I know you guys hate the radio buttons. I KNOW BECAUSE YOU TELL ME EVERY TIME I POST A RIDICULOUS POLL. But I cannot give you all ticky boxes all the time, because then you will just tick all the boxes, and then my extremely intellectually stimulating questions will be meaningless, and I'll cry a little, and it will all be v.v. tragic. I promise I will give you some ticky boxes every time, okay? :D

3. Speaking of polls, the votes from yesterday are in, and the biggest fashion tragedy of them all, was the pleated, slouchy, cropped, flower-print, I-don't-know-what-the-fuck pants (though I am kind of sad that more of you do not share my deep and abiding hatred for Abercrombie logo t-shirts.) If any of you are interested, you can actually buy the pants at Anthropologie. They originally retailed for $148, and now can be yours for a mere $39.95, which is about 75% off. All sizes still available. IMAGINE THAT.

4. Speaking of fashion tragedies, I came across this clip of wee bb JGL wearing some truly hideous pleated front relaxed fit pants, and a GIANT PLAID SHIRT that looks big enough for two wee bb JGLs.

AHAHA, OH JGL. You sure did grow up nice, and now you wear pants like nobody else AND I AM VERY GRATEFUL.


5. Also related to yesterday's poll, after looking at some of the clips again, I am pretty sure that Eames is wearing his own suit in the beginning of the first dream level when they're doing the taxi shoot-out thing. It's the one with the horrible tie, which you can see in the pic above. Then later, when he changes back to himself, he is apparently still wearing Browning's suit? You can see it during the dream a little bigger scene. But, you guys. WHY IS HE STILL WEARING BROWNING'S SUIT? His clothes immediately change back to his own when he changes back to himself in the hotel level, though what I wouldn't give to see Tom Hardy in a tight black mini-dress and heels. But the suit! It doesn't make any sense! Maybe Eames was just distracted because Arthur is extremely tense and frowny, and he can't very well do his normal comforting boyfriend thing which is give Arthur a blowjob, so he isn't focusing and just, like, forgets to un-forge his clothes? WHY DOES THIS MAKE NO SENSE. AND WHY OF ALL THE THINGS IN THE MOVIE THAT MAKE NO SENSE IS THIS THE ONLY ONE I AM HUNG UP ON.

I am going to be pretty busy for the next couple of days and so I might not be around as much to spam you all with capslocky nonsense and pictures of pretty, pretty boys, but I trust you will all carry on with out me, and post many many things that I will never ever have any hopes of catching up on D: BUT YES. GO SQUEE AND FLAIL AND BE AWESOME AND I WILL BE BACK SOON ♥

Question for you guys about Inception fic: what are your feelings about the whole British English v. American English thing? I know Merlin fandom can get a little cranky about fic that isn't properly Britpicked, but it's kind of weird in Inception. For dialogue, it makes sense that Eames would use British English and Arthur to use American English, but what about the narrative? And spelling? Would it depend on the POV? Or is everyone still in the OMG YAY NEW FIC stage and no one actually cares?

Moving on. Merlin! You guys, it is pathetic how much I love my cheesy ridiculous show. But do you know what I love even more than that? BRADLEY JAMES' FACE.



I wrote a bunch of words over the weekend. Actually, I wrote what is a lot of words for me, and while this makes me v.v. happy, I still have made no progress on the actual fic I am trying to write. WTF [ profile] inception_kink WHY ARE YOU SO DISTRACTING. Also, this fandom is never going to stop killing me, is it? I take a freaking day off of reading fic so I can, you know, WRITE FIC, and now I have no hopes of ever catching up to where I was before DDDD:

Tonight I have a date with the boy to see Inception at the IMAX. In honor of JGL's magnificent ass fifty feet tall, I am wearing a new dress. I THOUGHT THAT SEEMED LIKE THE CLASSY THING TO DO.

I just cannot resist polka dots )

Some Things What I Did Yesterday:

1. Talked to [ profile] derryere on the phone for three freaking hours, and still it wasn't enough. IT IS NEVER ENOUGH OKAY. I actually meant to spend more of the conversation harassing her into finishing the Merlin fic she is writing, but I kept getting distracted because there were SO MANY THINGS TO SAY D: Oh, and also? Her inception is coming along quite nicely. It just so happens that I know all of her weaknesses and am shamelessly exploiting each and every one of them :D

2. Read Presque Vu by [ profile] rageprufrock. I actually read the first half-ish of this a couple weeks ago when Pru almost broke my gmail by copying and pasting 80-some pages of fic into an email and OH MY GOD. Just. YEAH. Read it.

3. Decided that I do in fact love my new bangs/fringe/shortish hairs that hang down over my forehead. I haven't had bangs since I was about 14, so it was a big shock at first, but it's been two days and I'm definitely happy :D As far as the cut goes, it occurred to me last night that it reminds me of Julie Taylor from Friday Night Lights, though hopefully I do not actually look like a pouty teenager.

4. Wrote some words based on the prompts from yesterday's post. YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING. SERIOUSLY. Also, I forgot just how much I love writing Bradley and Colin being absolutely filthy. So, uh. Porn is coming :D

ANYWAY. That was yesterday. Today I am wearing shoes!


These are technically dancing shoes, so now I would like Tom Hardy to take me shoe shopping, then take me dancing.

After buzzing along merrily for several days in a row, my writing has stalled D: Maybe I just need to write something short and positively filthy, so I can get back to writing something... not so short and positively filthy. So, prompt me!

My entire response to the interview can be summed up as follows: BRADLEEEEEEY ASDFGHJK ♥______♥ If you haven't seen the interview yet, you can find it here on YouTube. NEW EP TOMORROW. HOLY SHIT.

2. Okay so this video?

THIS VIDEO CRACKS ME UP. I know he's supposed to be an asshole paparazzi dude, and I hate when they harass celebrities when they're just trying to go about their business, but I kind of love that photographer a little bit. When JGL tells him that Fellini directed La Dolce Vita and he is just like, "WHO?" I can practically see JGL's WHAT IS MY LIFE face. It pains his little hipster soul, and I can totally relate, because it is the very same pain I feel when Bradley wears his Abercrombie shirt. But what I really love is how at first the photographer is all dismissive, like, WHATEVER, YOU ARE NOT EVEN THAT FAMOUS, but by the end he is openly slashing JGL with his friend. It would have been one thing if he just admitted that he was going for the gay angle because it made a good story, but he basically tells him that he wants it to be true because he thinks it would be hot. He's an asshole photographer with the heart of a fangirl ♥

3. Speaking of JGL, does anyone else think that maybe he was kind of bratty as a kid, and always giving his parents shit for making him do stuff like take gymnastics and dance lessons and French lessons because while he enjoyed the acting thing, the rest of the time he just wanted to stay home and play Sonic the Hedgehog on SEGA? Only now that he is all grown up he's like HOLY SHIT, THIS GETS ME LAID ALL THE TIME. I HOPE HE THANKED HIS PARENTS IS ALL I'M SAYING.

4. Can we talk about T-Hard right now? )

5. You guys should know better than to dare me AKA PORN )

*And yes, that is the second reference to that song I've used in two days. I HAVE NEVER DOUBTED THE ARTISTIC INTEGRITY OF LADY GAGA OKAY.
