YOU GUYS YOU GUYS. I AM A MESS RIGHT NOW. LIKE I AM PHYSICALLY INCAPABLE OF EXPRESSING MYSELF OUTSIDE KEYSMASHES DLSJGL;SHGDSL;HD;S I THINK EVEN A NUMBERED LIST IS BEYOND ME. BUT I SHALL TRY :D

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

Photobucket


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 ♥♥♥

Stuff!

1. Okay, so MERLIN.

Sort of spoilery-ish reaction )

2. I know many of you were all EEEEEEEE HIS T-SHIRT when this picture came out, so I wanted to let you know that you can buy it here, along with a bunch of other shirts. I KNOW SOME OF YOU FEEL STRONGLY ABOUT THE T-SHIRTS SO THERE YOU GO :D

3. Okay, so this picture cracks me up.

Photobucket


I just think the combination of the Arthur hair and the dorky t-shirt is hilarious, especially since everyone else is all dressed in their badass clothes. It looks like bb Arthur showed up to hang out with the the team, and Saito is all WHO THE HELL IS THIS? And Eames is like, HE'S JUST THIS KID THAT KEEPS FOLLOWING ME AROUND OR SOMETHING WHO EVEN KNOWS. Meanwhile, bb Arthur is like, OH HEY GUYS WHAT'S UP :D Also: TOM HARDY'S ARMS JFC.

4. Bradley James' facial hair. YES I AM STILL TALKING ABOUT IT I AM SORRY. It has now been a full year since this post, yet I still feel like it is extremely relevant and basically says everything I want to say on the matter. I asked you guys about it back before we knew he grew the fuzzy stuff again this year, but now that it is officially back, I think it's time to poll the people once again.

[Poll #1650376]

For some reason I am exhausted today, and totally feeling like it's time for a nap. I hope guys are having an awesome Sunday :D

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. )

Oh, you guys. I am feeling ridiculously nostalgic for the early days of Merlin fandom right now. I don't mean I want to go back, because as far as I'm concerned, fandom only gets better when there is more of everything (with the exception of wank, of course.) I just think that the shiny newness of Inception is reminding me of when I had that same feeling about Merlin. And there really is nothing like the joy of falling hard for a new ship, is there?

I flung myself face first on the M/A train right at do you know how to walk on your knees, but The Poisoned Chalice is what knocked me down so hard I couldn't see anything but their perfect shiny love. I remember I sat there going WAIT WHAT. WHAAAAAT.

Photobucket


OH MY GOD THESE BOYS )

Anyway, speaking of old school Merlin, [livejournal.com profile] hermette posted about people sometimes saying that they're nervous or shy or intimidated by the fandom. I've had people express the same feelings to me, and you guys. THAT MAKES ME SO SAD. I realize that not everyone wants to participate in fandom the same way, and if lurking is what you want, then by all means, lurk away. But if there are people who want to play but are afraid for whatever reason, then I go all sadface, because fandom only gets better when there is more. And when people say they are intimidated by me I am just like HAHA WHAT. Because, really. I AM ACTUALLY THIS RIDICULOUS FOR REAL. PEOPLE WHO HAVE MET ME PLEASE CHIME IN AND CONFIRM.

I've been in Merlin fandom for almost two years now. Some of my friendships here go back that far, and so I totally get how it can feel hard to jump into something that seems so established, but I can only promise you that every single one of you is welcome to join in at any time on any post. I love capslocky squee and I love meeting new people and I love completely random comments and I LOVE LOVE LOVE hearing that people are just discovering the joy that is Merlin fandom, because it reminds me of when I was there too, with so many hearts in my eyeballs for pretty boys risking everything for each other because they are ridiculously painfully in love ♥♥♥

Before I go all weepy with love for Merlin fandom, I have one more pretty boy to talk about. Yesterday I posted pics of JGL in sweatpants, a windbreaker, and a baseball cap, so I think that means we could all stand to see that boy in a suit right about now.

Photobucket


Yes, that's much better )

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:



Without the big text:



The Fest so far:

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

Caps from Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Caps

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.

So, you know. Just because I was randomly wondering and not like these questions have any significance at all OH NO.

[Poll #1607699]

First of all, because a couple people have asked me directly, I just want to let everyone know that [livejournal.com profile] derryere is indeed okay, it is just that the universe is conspiring against her. AS IT DOES. But I have spoken with her (and her sister, who is as adorable and hilarious as she is) and she is just as fine as one can be when entirely cut off from the internets and will hopefully be back soon :D

And now onto the final piece of THE MEME THAT ATE MY LIFE HOLY CRAP YOU GUYS. Previous answers are here and here

Fic and porn and Bradley's ridiculous face )

A couple weeks ago, [livejournal.com profile] hermette made a post describing why she does fandom the way she does fandom, and it got me thinking about the same question for myself. First I want to say that this isn't in response to anything specific. Mostly it's just a random haphazard collection of thoughts born out of conversations I've had and posts I've seen over the past couple weeks.

If it's up to me then I pick squee )
cherrybina: (Default)
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 )

First things first.



OHMYGOD THESE BOYS. My very first thought upon seeing this gif was Adam and Kris and the headphone splitters. Okay, that's a lie. My very first thought was THAT'S IT THEY ARE SO FUCKING IDEC WHAT ANYONE SAYS. And then after I calmed down a bit I thought of Kradam. (ETA: SOME THEORIES ABOUT THE EARBUDS/MUSIC HERE.)

ALSO: HOW MUCH DO I LOVE THAT WE ACTUALLY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE SINGING. OH FANGIRLS. NEVER CHANGE.

I have returned from my Merlin viewing party of awesome with [livejournal.com profile] anevivi, [livejournal.com profile] puckling, and [livejournal.com profile] ras_elased. WATCHING MERLIN WITH FANGIRLS IS THE BEST THING EVER IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD.

I was stuck in traffic on the way down yesterday, so I was scanning my flist on my iPhone and DYING at all of the reaction posts, since it had already aired in the UK by then. Here is my very own episode reaction: THEY'RE SO PRETTY EEEEEEE!

How are all of you? Did you have a lovely weekend also? DID YOU MISS THIS SHOW AS MUCH AS I DID?

SDFGHJ BRADLEY'S FACE. I DIE. )
cherrybina: (bradley profile)
Okay so sorry to spam, but this day has been pretty epic for Merlin fans with the interview and the screening reports and the pictures (BRADLEY IN A MADONNA T-SHIRT. AND THEN A MILITARY JACKET.) and everything, and basically my entire reaction up until this point has been ASDFGHJKLASDFGHJKLASDFGHJKL. But I have calmed down a bit, so here is my attempt at coherence.

Dear cast of Merlin,

Come to the United States. Please. You are all awesome and adorable and hilarious, and I promise that you will get much love here from your many adoring fans.

Love,
Bina

Dear Bradley James,

Come to my bedroom. Please.

Love,
Bina

ETA: So I was not going to link to anything since there are just too many reports all over the place, but, well. ASDFGHJK BRADLEY'S THIGHS (SPOILERS IN LINK, BUT YOU CAN SCROLL FOR THE PICS ONLY). I cannot stop staring at them and imagining them wrapped around Colin's waist and I don't even feel a little bit of shame that I am absolutely objectifying his body like that.

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 I am trying to get excited about tonight's episode, but honestly I just keep getting distracted by the GIANT GAYFEST THAT IS NEXT WEEK. But we are not there yet which means we have to watch pretty boys brooding all over the place.





Fifteen minutes until showtime. Raise your hand if you're here! No really, jump in please. I PROMISE WE ARE ALL LOVELY. AND WE ONLY BITE IN A SEXY PLAYFUL WAY.
