OKAY. So when I saw these pics for the first time, I made ACTUALFAX SQUEAKING SOUNDS. YOU GUYS. I AM JUST. WHAT.

I DON'T EVEN HAVE ANY WORDS LEFT )

In other news of pretty boys, it was a long and grueling ten days over at [livejournal.com profile] frantic_allonsy's, but the madness has ended and sanity has been restored (WELL OKAY PROBABLY NOT HAHA) and the award for prettiest boy goes to Colin \o/

IT'S MISTER COLIN MORGAN )

And before I forget, the new challenge at [livejournal.com profile] kinkelot is penetration: Think double penetration, fisting, pegging and object penetration; playing with size, stretch, fill, or something foreign entering the body. Um, YES PLEASE YES PLEASE YES PLEASE. With all of these knights there's lots of room (HA!) for double penetration, yes? And fisting. ALWAYS THERE SHOULD BE MORE FISTING.

Speaking of double penetration, is there any of that in Inception? Look, I have made no secret about how much I love toys, extra fingers, random objects found lying around, WHATEVER. JUST FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOT AND HOLY STICK SOMETHING UP THERE OKAY. AND THEN LINK ME TO IT PLEASE AND THANK YOU :D

And on that note, I hope you're having an awesome Sunday ♥

I've been feeling all nostalgic for the early days of Merlin fandom, and after flailing about The Poisoned Chalice, I decided to rewatch The Labyrinth of Gedref, which is my very favorite episode of all time. If I had to guess, I'd say that across fandom, The Moment of Truth is probably the most popular episode, and while I love that one very much, nothing, nothing, can live up to the ridiculous flaily glee I feel every single time I even think about LoG.

It has a lot going for it - tons of M/A interaction, pretty boys all over the place, an actualfax unicorn - but it's Arthur that does it for me so hard. This episode, you guys? This right here is like my very own love song to Arthur Pendragon.

You know me, Merlin. I never listen to you. )

Today is Day Six in the Merlin S3 Countdown Fest of Awesome. I know some of you are feeling a little bit sad seeing so many people on LJ flailing about things that aren't Merlin *ahem* but today we have just the thing to bring us all back together again. A SHINY NEW S3 TRAILER OMG.

\o/ Merlin S3 Countdown: All-Out Squeefest \o/


Spoilery trailer eeeee! )

YOU GUYS YOU GUYS ASDFGHJKL. I CANNOT EVEN. THESE BOYS. I LOVE THEM SO HARD. So I declare today's countdown post an all out squeefest. Bring your gifs, your favorite pictures, AND OF COURSE YOUR CAPSLOCK, AND COME FLAIL WITH ME AS WE ALL REMEMBER WHY WE LOVE THIS SHOW \O/!!!

OKAY. So it's Day 4 in the Merlin S3 Countdown Fest of Awesome, YAY. Today is when we look back at Season Two in pictures. That means bring on the pretty :D

\o/ Merlin Countdown Fest: Last Minute Picspams \o/


Normally when I make a picspam, it takes hours to choose and organize the caps, then write up random capslocky flail deep and insightful commentary, but with the new season right around the corner, we're running out of time. So! Here's your chance to make a picspam without really making a picspam. Throw down a screencap or two, say a few words if you want, and bask in the pretty.

I've been saying for ages that I've wanted to do a Merlin sadface picspam. I adore Merlin, and I want nothing more than for him to find happiness with his shiny haired prince of destiny, but OH MY GOD DOES THAT BOY LOOK PRETTY WHEN HE'S SAD. And poor Merlin was sad an awful lot during season two. It breaks my heart, it really does, but if there is an upside, it is that Colin Morgan's face was made for angst.

Picspam I never made: Merlin is sad a lot )

Now it's your turn! Share your very favorite caps of season two, and talk about the picspams you would have made if only there was more time.

TWO WEEKS, YOU GUYS. TWO WEEKS ASDFGHJK \O/!!

Pimp if you like:

The Fest so far:

Day 1: Launch Party
Day 2: Mod Appreciation
Day 3: This Will Never Happen (but I Still Want It)

1. [livejournal.com profile] franticsga wrote Merlin/Arthur fic and you should go read it because it is awesome. She has tried to blame this on me somehow, which, OKAY. Here is something that you should all know: you can blame me all you want, but when the end result is a ridiculously adorable fic in which boys wear suits and then come all over each other, I AM NOT GOING TO BE SORRY. I AM NEVER GOING TO BE SORRY.

2. Speaking of boys in suits coming all over each other (that is like, THE DEFINING SEGUE OF MY JOURNAL, I THINK) yesterday I mentioned JGL's dimples, and how I very much wanted dimple porn, and I just want to thank [livejournal.com profile] syllic and [livejournal.com profile] nicolasechs for taking that conversation exactly where I wanted it to go and discussing the logistics of Eames coming all over Arthur's face and then licking it out of his dimples. THAT WAS WHAT I MEANT BY DIMPLE PORN. I feel like this could be complicated, because Arthur is not really all that smiley, right? And without the smile, there aren't any dimples.

PhotobucketPhotobucket


So think about it - Eames has to somehow get him to smile, while also getting off at the same time. And the closer he gets to coming, the harder it is for him to focus on making Arthur smile. DO YOU SEE HOW THIS MIGHT BE DIFFICULT? But really, if there is anyone who can do it, it's Eames, am I right?

3. Speaking of Arthur not smiling, Merlin S3 promo pics \o/

Non-spoilery photos )

4. Speaking of fic, I AM SUCH A MESS RIGHT NOW OMG. In addition to 32847550606 Merlin WIPs, I am writing this ridiculously filthy Arthur/Eames fic which can be summarized thusly: ARTHUR IS BENDY. EAMES APPROVES. I'm also writing this painfully fluffy Arthur/Eames thing in which there is cuddling and hand holding and NO ONE TOUCHES ANYONE ELSE'S PEEN. IDEK.

So what do you guys think? Am I really that good at seamlessly moving from one point to the next, or is my journal just a never ending cycle of porn and fic and pretty boys and porn and fic and... OKAY YEAH I THINK THAT'S PROBABLY IT.

⇒ Early morning wake up call. I've been having some weird issues with my hot water heater over the past few weeks, and today it decided that it had had enough thankyouverymuch and was no longer going to make the water nice and toasty. Of course it made this decision RIGHT AS I GOT INTO THE SHOWER. SERIOUSLY. I had about three seconds of hot water and then BAM. That is certainly one way to wake up. I shrieked and wailed like a giant baby but still managed to wash all my parts, and I gotta say, my hair is looking exceptionally shiny today. Not as shiny as Bradley's, and not so shiny that I'm willing to take a frigid shower every morning, but still.

⇒ Inception. Uh, yeah. So what is going on with this fandom? BECAUSE IT LOOKS KIND OF AWESOME OKAY. Last summer, everyone was flailing all over the place about Star Trek, and I was busy trying to lure people back to Merlin, and by the time I got my act together to realize OMG PRETTY BOYS ON A SPACESHIP I felt like I missed the awesomest of the awesome. I don't want that to happen again! Even though I think of myself as painfully monofannish at heart, the truth is that I am very, very easy and porn and pretty boys will get me every single time, and, well, they're really fucking pretty okay and asdfghj the porn. SO GOOD. So talk to me flist, worth cheating on Merlin and Arthur? BUT ONLY UNTIL THE NEW SEASON STARTS OKAY.

⇒ Voiceposts. They're all the rage. I have already done one that was flocked, because that shit is embarrassing for real, but I'm going to do another one because I still have more questions to answer. I figured what the hell, this one will be unlocked because basically you have already seen me at my most ridiculous, so nothing I say is going to be that much of a shock. Let me know if there is anything you want me to say, and I shall try. Probably though, I will end up distracted by the first question and babble on at length about random shit. AS I DO. Now everyone will know that I say wudder and haaaaarible and beeeeaghd and Murray Christmas. I PROMISE IT IS MORE AWESOME THAN IT SOUNDS.

Happy Saturday, lovelies ♥

So, a couple weeks ago, [livejournal.com profile] bookshop posted a poll forcing people to choose sides: Team Zombie or Team Unicorn.

I picked Team Unicorn, which should really be surprising to no one. Unicorns are shiny and magical and made of rainbows and sunshine, while zombies are really pretty gross D: BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, KILLING UNICORNS MAKES MERLIN POUT.

Now, okay. SEE MERLIN POUTING IS REALLY KIND OF PRETTY.

Title: In Pursuit of Perfection
Author: [livejournal.com profile] cherrybina
Pairing Merlin/Arthur
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~1700
Summary: Merlin had realised a long time ago that Arthur really is disgustingly good at everything he does, so it's no surprise at all when he learns firsthand that despite a late start, Arthur is rather brilliant at sex.

Notes: This is a sequel of sorts to Let Go and Watch the Sunlight Bend, but it's just porn, really, so you probably don't need to read that first. Way back when I was writing the fic, [livejournal.com profile] lamardeuse told me I should totally write a porny sequel in which Arthur fucks Merlin for the first time while Merlin talks him through it. SO I DID.

In Pursuit of Perfection )

Thank you for all of your support during my LAPTOP CRISIS. I've been researching the options for getting it fixed, and I found a place that will do it for me, or I can actually buy the parts and do it myself, which is both awesome and terrifying at the same time. But the important thing is that it looks as though all of my data is fine. The left half of the screen still works, and if I scrunch the window up really small, I can see everything in a narrow two-inch column. I am also very fortunate to have a backup laptop, which is old and clunky (AND NOT A MAC OMG), but it works, which is what counts.

Even though the data appears to be okay, my current fic is tucked safely away in gdocs, so I have been merrily typing away, ignoring my despair at having to pay for a new LCD display. WHO CAN CARE ABOUT SUCH THINGS WHEN THERE ARE WORDS JUST BEGGING TO BE WRITTEN? So yes, that is where I am right now, though I am somewhat distressed at how I have such a looooong way to go in the fic before I get to the porn. IT IS HARD FOR ME TO HOLD OUT LIKE THAT.

In other news, I saw this word meme thing going around, and one of the questions was about metal lunchboxes. I am somewhat disturbed to see a lot of comments from people going, WAIT, THEY ARE METAL??? Um, hello people. WHERE WERE ALL OF YOU IN THE 80S? AND PLEASE DO NOT SAY YOU WEREN'T YET BORN. Personally, I had a very awesome old school Strawberry Shortcake metal lunchbox, that I rocked back in the late 80s. It looked kind of like this:

Flashback! )

And finally, OKAY. I realize that I may spend what some might consider an inordinate amount of time squeeing over the delight that is Bradley's face, but the truth is that Colin also does things to me.

Photobucket


OH YES. Though please tell me I'm not the only one who misses his terrible haircut of seasons passed. I could just imagine Merlin borrowing Arthur's little mirror (WHICH HE HAS REPLACED OBVIOUSLY) to give himself a haircut, hoping that Arthur doesn't notice how crooked it is. Arthur is, of course, too distracted by the lovely noises Merlin makes when Arthur slicks his fingers and opens him up to notice Merlin's terrible hair. OR IS THAT JUST ME?

ETA: Why do I miss Merlin's longer hair?

HERE'S WHY )

OKAY. So I am feeling kind of guilty that I didn't do a good job reporting from [livejournal.com profile] minimerlin, and even guiltier that there was nothing as tawdry as FANGIRL MAKEOUT PILEUPS this year (WHICH SOMEHOW IS ALSO MY FAULT, I THINK.) I know some of you were counting on me to provide you with RIDICULOUS SHENANIGANS POSTS and I failed to deliver, so to alleviate my guilt, I AM GOING TO SHARE SOMETHING REALLY EMBARRASSING WITH YOU.

On Saturday night, there were multiple porn readings, one of which was this irredeemable piece of filth, and apparently I decided it would be a REALLY FABULOUS IDEA to give a DVD style commentary. Because, you know, it is such a complicated piece of fiction with many levels, and I just wanted everyone to see my vision. Things were a bit hazy for me at this point (THANK YOU, VODKA) but I am fairly certain that my comments were basically, "BLAH BLAH BLAAAAH," during the non-porn parts (ALL THREE PARAGRAPHS) and then gleefully yelling, "SLUT!" every time Merlin begged, moaned, and, you know, TOOK IT. WHICH WAS KIND OF A LOT.

LATER I GOT INTO A SUPER SERIOUS BUSINESS CONVERSATION ABOUT ASSFUCKING. I MAY HAVE EVEN SAID SOMETHING ABOUT MY MANIFESTO. IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THERE WERE HAND GESTURES INVOLVED.

I feel like there is a metaphor in there somewhere, only I'm not sure I actually want to know what it is.

So I guess SyFy got the message and changed the character bio for Gwen, because there's no more mention of her wonky teeth and glasses, and you know, face that no one could possibly find beautiful.



Also, now she is just destined to be Queen of Camelot and not THE BIGGEST ADULTERESS IN THE HISTORY OF ADULTERY WHO CAUSED THE DOWNFALL OF CIVILIZATION or whatever fuckery that was all about.

And honestly? Every time I started to get outraged, I would just start CRACKING UP at the utter ridiculousness. I think my favorite has to be Merlin's. [livejournal.com profile] derryere rightly pointed out that this is just BEGGING FOR FIC:

If the world only knew what Merlin could do he'd be popular, rich....and dead. So he has to watch Arthur get the credit and the girls.

I MEAN REALLY. WHO IS GOING TO WRITE THAT???

In other news, [livejournal.com profile] kinkelot! DO NOT FORGET THE KINK, MY LOVELIES. I AM DESPERATE. The current challenges are hands (ONLY A FEW DAYS LEFT!!) and rimming/felching both of which are on the list of THINGS THAT MAKE BINA A VERY HAPPY GIRL OH YES, AKA THINGS THAT WILL MAKE ME LOVE YOU FOREVER IF YOU WRITE THEM PLEASE I BEG YOU.

Tomorrow is Friday, and that means ONE MORE WEEK UNTIL [livejournal.com profile] minimerlin. There is still time to register if you want to come. See this post for more info. YOU GUYS. SO EXCITING OMG \o/

In conclusion, can anyone give me one good reason why I should not buy these shoes:



And when I saw one good reason, I mean one reason besides they look like Strawberry Shortcake shoes. I MEAN THEY HAVE CHERRIES ON THE INSIDE FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO RESIST THAT?

Pairing Merlin/Arthur
Rating: NC-17

Summary: It’s the hottest summer in Camelot’s history. Arthur is confused about what he likes, Merlin tries to help him figure it out, but neither one of them has a clue what they really want.

Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] manisseta for [livejournal.com profile] camelotsolstice and originally posted here.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] lamardeuse and [livejournal.com profile] kelene for the beta and Britpick, to [livejournal.com profile] derryere for being there to answer every ridiculous question I had, and [livejournal.com profile] leupagus for always saying what needed to be said and for talking me through this when I thought I might never make it work.

Okay, so most important business first:


awesome banner by [livejournal.com profile] derryere


EEEEEEEE! YOU GUYS. YOU GUYS. DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW EXCITED I AM FOR THIS?? For those of you who don't know, MiniMerlin was an informal con held in March that was SERIOUSLY AWESOME. REALLY, IT WAS. I'm trying to think of a classy way to recap it, but all I can come up with is FANGIRL MAKEOUT PILES and PORN READINGS COMPLETE WITH SOUND EFFECTS and MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF VODKA. I promise other stuff did happen :D (You can read my recap here)

Anyway! Go join [livejournal.com profile] minimerlin since that's where all updates will be from now on, and check out this post for more info.

Moving along! There's a newish coffee shop/cafe in my neighborhood that I've been meaning to try, and I finally went today. It was lovely but a bit overpriced. There's one I like better that's not quite in my neighborhood that I think I'll stick to. Still, it was fun and I had an awesome sandwich consisting of herbed cheese bread, avocado, roasted peppers, jicma, cheddar cheese, and chipotle lime mayo. SO TASTY.

Also! I saw a boy there who I swear was Drake Bell. Not like someone who looked like him, but ACTUALLY DRAKE BELL. I've never actually seen Drake and Josh, but I recognized him from fandom stuff I've seen around. Anyway, I came home and started poking around looking at pictures to see if I was remembering his face correctly and it might have actually been him, and ended up reading Drake and Josh fic for like two hours. WHAT IS MY LIFE IDEK.

Then later I went to the grocery store and discovered it was jam packed full of people. At first I was like WTF IS GOING ON HERE but I soon discovered they were having a special Thanksgiving food sample party to encourage people to order turkeys and stuff. The store was full of sample stations, and they had an entire turkey dinner with all the trimmings as well as appetizers and dessert. FREE DINNER. SCORE.

Power Play

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? )

Fifteen minutes to Merlin, bbs!



THIS IS THE LAST S1 PARTY POST SO LET'S MAKE IT EPIC. MERLIN WILL UNLEASH A MAGICAL FIREBALL ON YOU IF YOU MISS IT.

Raise your hand if you're here! AND THAT MEANS ALL OF YOU! Everyone is welcome, AND THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MANY RANDOM COMMENTS OF FLAILY SQUEE. THOSE ARE MY FAVORITE KIND OF THEM ALL :D
cherrybina: (Default)
So at the end of Sunday's Merlin episode, we were given the distressing news that we have to wait TWO WEEKS until the next one. It is probably getting preempted for some crap sports thing. Basketball. Or baseball or something. IDEK what sports are in season now. WHATEVER.

The silver lining is that they will be showing two episodes back to back. PEOPLE DO YOU REALIZE WHAT THIS MEANS. The Moment of Truth followed by The Labyrinth of Gedref. You guys, you guys, YOU GUYS. SERIOUSLY. HOW AWESOME IS THAT.

I mean just look at the seven pages of squee we generated on an episode that featured a distressing lack of M/A interaction. Imagine the ridiculousness that awaits us all as we watch the two gayest episodes this show has to offer one after the other in BEAUTIFUL HIGH DEF.

So! This is your official invitation to the epic awesomeness that will occur here on the 16th of August at 8:00 pm EDT. Be there or Merlin will unleash the magical firedragon of boylove on your ass.



P.S. MERLIN BIG BANGS TOMORROW. I MIGHT VERY WELL BURST.
cherrybina: (Default)
So um. It is entirely possible that today I wrote a thousand words of a modern AU in which Adam and Kris meet Merlin and Arthur. It is also possible that this fic includes magic!Adam, perpetual grad student!Merlin, jealous!Arthur and reluctant!Kris. There may or may not be a conversation between Adam and Merlin in which Adam remarks that Merlin's boyfriend is awfully uptight and might benefit from being had over a table. ADAM THEN MAY OR MAY NOT VOLUNTEER TO DO THIS IN THE NAME OF GAY TRANSATLANTIC RELATIONS. Also: private jets and tropical islands and Merlin and Kris bonding over living with drama queens and MAGICAL GLITTER and in the end they work it out with lots of boysex. BECAUSE THEY ARE EMOTIONALLY STUNTED BOYS AND THAT IS WHAT THEY DO.

YEAH I BLAME [livejournal.com profile] likespring AND [livejournal.com profile] yeats. IDEK WHAT TO SAY ABOUT THIS.
