Okay so I totally was not going to do this. In fact, just last night, [livejournal.com profile] derryere and I had a conversation in which I declared I'M NEVER WRITING MERLIN META EVER. And then. WELL. THIS HAPPENED.

Let's talk about power, shall we? )

Okay so. TUESDAY = ADAM NIGHT. But you guys! There are not that many Adam nights left! What am I going to do when I don't get to see him on TV every week? D:

And now it is time for a discussion question AKA AMUSE BINA AT WORK PLEASE. What is your favorite kind of Merlin story? Do you like long, plotty fics? Or do you prefer something short and sweet? Do you like when all the characters show up in one way or another? Or are you just here for the porn? Angst? H/C? Adventure? Fluff? TELL ME. I DEMAND IT.

Speaking of Merlin fic, lately I feel like there has been comment porn everywhere I look. THIS IS A GOOD THING. There is something very liberating about writing comment fic - no one cares about typos and random changes in tense and shit. And it's the perfect place to experiment. Maybe write something filthier than you've ever written, for example. AND I KEEP SEEING COMMENT PORN PARTIES AND I LOVE THIS. But what I love even more is when the porn just spontaneoulsy appears on a post that you'd never expect. Because you know what I say? THE MORE PORN, THE BETTER. DO YOU AGREE, Y/N?

So Merlin will be airing here in America next month. I am very curious as to what will happen to the fandom at that time. Will there be a huge influx of people? And if so, will it shift the fandom dynamics? Right now the fandom is so delightfully free of wank and filled with so much awesome and I admit that I'm worried it will change.

I've discussed this with several people already, but it is my observation that the Americans who are Merlin fans already are here because they discovered it through some fandom overlap. As in, they are already fannish people and they bring with them a basic understanding of how fandom works.

As far as fic goes, I know there was some complaining awhile back about Americans writing for a British show, but I haven't seen much of it since. I think it helps that there are some very talented Americans writing. But I know that is such a huge point of contention in HP, and I wonder if it will get like that in Merlin. People are so nice for the most part, but maybe it will change if the fandom is sudenly flooded with really bad fic.

So tell me. What do you think will happen when the show airs in America? Do you think it will be a good thing? Or are you preparing to run away screaming, "oh god, here they come!"

I refuse to post about crap days three days in a row, so instead I will post about something that makes me happy. PORN. More precisely, 13,000 words of porn. No, no, I didn't write 13,000 words of smut, but I did write 500 of them! It's porn week at [livejournal.com profile] armer_gayms! There are 26 entries of exactly 500 words each, so if you like the idea of prince/manservant relations, get yourselves over there RIGHT THE FUCK NOW TO READ ALL ABOUT HOT NAKED BOYS.

CLICK HERE!!!

And don't forget to vote for your favorite :D

Pairing Arthur/Merlin
Rating: R
Word Count: ~2,000
Summary: Arthur and Merlin get caught in a net. Awkwardness ensues.

Notes: This is dedicated to the brilliant [livejournal.com profile] derryere. I'm not really sure what to say about all the fluffiness at the end.

Many thanks to the lovely [livejournal.com profile] simply_numpty for a super speedy yet very thorough beta.

This is part of a series about the many firsts for Arthur and Merlin, but this is actually the first first, and was meant to stand alone.

Hypothetically speaking, if one were to, say, write a series of short ficlets in which Arthur and Merlin discover the many joys of gay sex, which particular first times would you be most interested in reading?

I'M JUST CURIOUS OKAY. NO REASON.
cherrybina: (until the day i die)
I KNOW THIS IS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT, ESPECIALLY FOR [livejournal.com profile] leandergasped, BUT I MUST KNOW HOW YOU FEEL.

[Poll #1361951]

cherrybina: (arthur serious)
Okay so the other day I posted about my Merlin love, and since I also adore Arthur, I felt like it was my duty to give him his very own post.

The loveliest of all princes )
cherrybina: (emo Merlin)
So after some discussion over at [livejournal.com profile] zed_pm's journal, I was inspired to re-watch Le Morte D'Arthur. Now this is one of my all-time favorite episodes, mainly because of what it did for the amount of love I have for my very favorite slutty manservant.

What did it do, you ask? Well before this episode, my Merlin love was resting comfortably at merely stratospheric, and then after, it exploded outward to, like, EPICALLY OTHERWORLDLY.

How I got from there to here )
cherrybina: (slut)
I swear that I really keep meaning to sit down and write proper Merlin fic, but instead all I can manage is filthy RPS, crack, or, well, this.

I present what I feel is truly a literary masterpiece - The First Time: An Arthur and Merlin Love Story in Pictures.


The First Time )

Okay, so there are approximately 3736485656383956 Merlin communities and while I don’t want to miss anything, I also don’t really want 80 billion duplicate entries mucking up my friends page.

So, my dear friends, please help. What communities do you think are absolutely necessary?
cherrybina: (merlin thinking)
Okay so [livejournal.com profile] derryere said something about making out with Bradley James and how appealing such a thing might be, and it got me thinking about how he is so remotely not even close to my type and yet I would happily mack on him, no questions asked. Because - well, yeah.

ANYWAY all of this thinking about making out with really hot boys who are not my type led me to do a Google image search on Bradley James, for scientific reasons of course. In order to figure out why he is so mackable, I needed a v.v. clear image in my head.

It's scary on the internets )

Okay so remember when I was all like HM SHOULD I WATCH THIS MERLIN SHOW OR WHAT? That was kind of funny because, well, DID YOU SEE THE LIST OF PROS?

I think it is just inevitable that I am going to end up writing Arthur/Merlin slash because, well I mean HELLO. So pretty. I just cannot resist. But see here's the thing - I have this terrible fear that they will end up sounding all American, and that is bad. BAD BAD BAD BAD. Well I mean, being American is not bad! Just not right for Arthur and Merlin.

But you see, I have found a solution to the conundrum! I shall just have less with the talking and more with the UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE OF HOT GAY SEX. Because fucking in England is just like fucking in America, right? RIGHT?? I might not be able to be all like BLIMEY WOT WOT BLOODY HELL BUGGER ME YOU CHEEKY MONKEY JOLLY GOOD MATE. But naked boys doing dirty things together? Yeah, I can do that.

On with the sex! Or, you know, as they say in England, SHAGGING.
