Either formspring is harder than it looks, or I HAVE SERIOUS PROBLEMS WITH MY LIFE. I have somehow managed to answer one question twice, delete another question altogether, and answer a bunch of questions which are now nowhere to be found D: WHAT HOW IS THIS SO HARD. That ringing endorsement of my awesomeness aside, you can still ask me stuff! I PROMISE I WILL TRY TO OVERCOME MY DIFFICULTIES AND ANSWER THEM ALL :D

In other news, I have received my [community profile] kink_bingo card and IT IS DELIGHTFUL.

KINKY DELICIOUSNESS YAY )

And finally, I am having serious layout angst. I'm in need of a change and my skills go as far as... CLICKING ONE OF THE BASIC OPTIONS D: Seriously, you guys. SEND HELP. I know there are, like, communities and resources and stuff, some of which have to be straightforward enough for the easily confused AKA ME.

Okay so first of all, HIIIIII :D I have missed all of you over these past few weeks, but I am happy to report that RL is finally slowing down a bit. I have been busy with many different things, most of which are totally boring to anyone who is not me. Most of them are boring to me, too. But! The one thing I think that might be of interest is that I AM WRITING MY LITTLE HEART OUT RIGHT NOW OH YES. I have not been this ridiculously excited about a fic in like, FOREVER, so I have to say that it feels pretty awesome. TO ME, ANYWAY. But see I am getting myself all worked up about some of the details in this fic. This is all par for the course since I am incapable of writing anything more than straight up porn without having some sort of freak out, but rather than keep my neuroses safely contained in gchat, I am sharing it all with you. DON'T YOU FEEL LUCKY.

A couple weeks ago I talked about the relative importance of realism in porn, and sort of related to that, I want to hear what you think about historical accuracy in fic. With Merlin, there are so many anachronisms in the show that it's hard to get too picky about accuracy, though obviously it varies from person to person.

Okay, now I am going to give away a BIG SECRET about my writing process here. I am VERY VERY LAZY and I tend not to do a lot of research for my fics. Well, actually that's not true. Since the vast majority of what I write is porn, and the best research for writing porn is reading porn, well then yeah, I guess you could say I do QUITE A BIT OF RESEARCH ACTUALLY. But other than that, my research generally consists of sending frantic messages to [livejournal.com profile] derryere asking ridiculous questions about the kinds of animals that would be in medieval British forests. AND THEN JUST GOING WITH WHATEVER SHE SAYS.

But the truth is that unless it is some crucial plot point (and let's face it, when do I ever write anything with a plot, let alone crucial plot points?) my philosophy generally consists of the following:

1. Make something up.
2. Distract with porn.
3. Hope no one notices.

Really, it all comes down to my number one goal with fic which is GIVE THE PEOPLE PORN. I find that this is generally seen as a positive.

But here is the thing: I am writing this fic right now, and it has - WELL. Okay, let me back up for a moment. In the past, you have probably heard me say any or all of the following:

1. I don't write long fic.
2. I most definitely don't write anything with plot.
3. I never ever ever write action scenes.

WELL YOU WILL NEVER GUESS WHAT MY CURRENT FIC HAS. OH YES, REALLY. I CAN HARDLY BELIEVE IT MYSELF. And I mean yes, there is porn, but there is also all of this other stuff in there, and for some of it, I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA WHAT THE FUCK I AM TALKING ABOUT. I am definitely going to do some research, some of which will even go beyond harassing my friends via gchat, but I'm worried about getting it right, especially since the questions I have go beyond PRECISELY WHAT NOISE DOES MERLIN MAKE WHEN ARTHUR FUCKS HIM ON HIS KNEES BEHIND THE STABLES? AND HOW MUCH DOES MERLIN LOVE IT WHEN ARTHUR COMES FIRST? I mean, don't get me wrong, those are REALLY IMPORTANT QUESTIONS, and ones which I have spent a very long time thinking about in explicit detail - questions which I will never stop endeavoring to answer for all of you, ALSO IN EXPLICIT DETAIL. But now I have all of these other questions that have nothing to do with whether or not Merlin is secretly a little bit annoyed that Arthur is better at sucking cock than he is.

So my question is this: how important to you is historical accuracy in fic? Does it make a difference if it's canon time (which is sort vague at best) or a definite time period (such as an AU set in Victorian times, for example)? Does the degree of the inaccuracy make a difference? For example, a one line mention of Gaius using an herb that wasn't in Britain back then vs. the entire plot hinging on Arthur sending secret text messages to Merlin in a canon fic. SHOULD I JUST THROW A WHOLE CRAP LOAD OF PORN IN THERE AND HOPE IT'S ENOUGH?

In other news, FRIDAY YAY, Y/Y?

I have many very strong feelings about porn. Some of you have even heard me go on and on about this in person. Some of you have even heard me go on and on about this in person while sober, which I might be embarrassed about if I had any amount of shame left. BUT ALAS. I TURNED THAT CORNER LONG AGO. So then it should come as no surprise that this morning I thought about porn while I made tea, washed the dishes, and swept the kitchen floor. It all started based on something [livejournal.com profile] ras_elased brought up yesterday, and that got me thinking about realism in porn.

When I read porn, I want it to be hot. Obviously that goes without saying, but the big question of course is, what makes something hot? That's actually a really interesting topic, but I think it deserves a discussion of its own, so I'll save that one for another day. For right now I'll just say that while there may be a few general guidelines, personal tastes play a huge part in determining what is and is not hot in porn. But what I really want to talk about is how much does realism factor into whether or not you enjoy porn? At what point do you stop reading because you can't get over how that is JUST NOT POSSIBLE WTF?

Aside from kinks, which very often fall into the hot buttons or automatic squicks categories, one thing that I think people either love or hate are mentions of sexual fluids. For the most part, I think this conversation applies to all porn, but since the majority of what I read and write is slash, I'm obviously talking about come. Jizz. WHATEVER WORD YOU PREFER.

I know plenty of people who immediately hit the back button as soon as there is talk of come dripping out of Merlin's ass, while others are all like ASDFGHJ YES PLEASE. I WILL GIVE YOU THREE GUESSES AS TO WHICH CATEGORY I FALL INTO. But it's a preference, or a kink, or whatever you want to call it, and I don't think that people who don't write explicit descriptions of it are writing unrealistic porn. Even though I fall into the YES PLEASE camp, I've read lots of really hot porn that doesn't mention it at all. Sometimes it depends on the mood of the fic. If it's a quiet, gentle scene that's more about the emotions than the fucking, a long and detailed description of Arthur coming all over Merlin might be jarring. I have this thing where I can't seem to write about orgasms without at least saying something about it being HOT or WET or STICKY even when the porn is not super explicit, but that's because I am a filthy girl, not because I think it's necessary to make it realistic.

Let's face it, there are some aspects of sex that we tend to leave out or gloss over because they're not sexy. I might spend 3 long and explicit paragraphs describing how Arthur lovingly opens Merlin up with his slick fingers, then have one throwaway line about cleaning up after so I can get to the cuddling. Or hell, I might skip the cleanup altogether, which it really pretty gross when you think about it. Love it or hate it, the truth is come gets pretty unpleasant when it dries. CRUSTY JIZZ = NOT SEXY. But the thing is, who wants to write about cleaning up when there is snuggling to be had? I'm totally willing to overlook the need for cleanup if it means I can hurry up and get to Arthur spooning Merlin and whispering his emotionally stunted version of sweet nothings in his ear.

Of course there needs to be a certain degree of realism in porn or else it's just too distracting to be hot. Things that are not anatomically possible is a big one for me. As hot as it might be in theory for Arthur to fuck Merlin while he simultaneously gives him a blow job*, unless there is some kind of magic, or a go-go-Gadget neck involved, that's just not going to do it for me. Or if I'm left scratching my head going, "but - I mean, how is that possible? With his hand...? And I thought he was - just WHAT IS GOING ON HERE," then I'm going to be too focused on who is putting what where to enjoy it.

There are a lot of places where reality is stretched pretty regularly when it comes to porn. The truth about recovery time for guys. Positions that just don't work that well. How hard it is to achieve mutual orgasms, especially the first time. Someone's leg falling asleep and then shrieking, "Ow! Ow! Get off!" Etc, etc. Sometimes I'm willing to suspend disbelief, such as when first time sex is perfect and amazing and not the least bit awkward. But if Merlin makes Arthur come six times before breakfast, I'm going to raise my eyebrows a bit, even if it fits into my bulletproof scenario of filthy fluff AKA COME EVERYWHERE. AND THEN THEY CUDDLE.

What are your feelings about realism in porn? How much do you need for it to work and how much are you willing to overlook in the name of FUCK YES THAT'S HOT? WHAT ARE YOUR DEEP AND PERSONAL FEELINGS ABOUT COME EVERYWHERE?

In conclusion I will say that while I set out to write about realism in porn, I ended up writing mostly about jizz. That... is not the least bit surprising, really.

*It has been pointed out that this is indeed possible :D

I'm going underground and not resurfacing until my shamefully late [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti fic is done. [livejournal.com profile] troygirl68 deserves some kind of award for waiting so patiently in the face of my complete and utter fail. SERIOUSLY D:

To hold you over, have some comment fic celebrating Merlin's pretty lips. SEE YOU ON THE FLIP SIDE ♥

ETA: Since [livejournal.com profile] ras_elased's post is locked, I'm reposting comment fic here. Just a fair warning that this was very hastily written and is likely riddled with errors. BUT IT IS PORN.

Pretty, pretty lips )

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.
cherrybina: (Default)
UGH, YOU GUYS. I am suffering from some kind of writing angst (wrangst?) right now. It is just. IDEK. Not writer's block exactly, but something else AND IT IS DRIVING ME CRAZY D:

So! In an attempt to snap out of it, I am stealing this meme from [livejournal.com profile] hermette. It made the rounds a couple months ago and I never posted it, but perhaps talking about fic will help me write fic? I CAN HOPE ANYWAY.

Pick a paragraph (or any passage less than 500 words) from any fanfic I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

All of my fics are here. I am more than happy to discuss even the filthiest of paragraphs (AS A MATTER OF FACT THEY HAPPEN TO BE MY FAVORITE KIND OF PARAGRAPHS), so pick anything you like. You can also ask me questions about anything I've written if, you know, you have always been wondering why Arthur came so fast that one time OR ANYTHING ELSE DEEP AND MEANINGFUL :D

ALSO. If you do not feel like finding a paragraph (BUT YOU TOTALLY SHOULD BECAUSE I THINK IT WILL BE FUN. WELL, FOR ME ANYWAY) I'll also take drabble prompts up to some number which I have not yet determined. Leave me a pairing and a one word or short phrase prompt, and I will write SOMETHING even if I have to fight for every word.

In conclusion: SEND HELP D:

I just wanted to let everyone know that I created an account at Archive of Our Own a few months ago and I have been moving all of my fic over there. You can find it all here if you are so interested. I linked to it in my profile, but I thought I'd mention it here. Not everything is up yet, but I'm getting there.

In other news, AT&T hates me. There is no other explanation. Yesterday I stopped getting email notifications on my iPhone. The degree to which this freaks me out is probably not healthy given that not that long ago, I wasn't able to check my email at every red light, but technology is a one way road forward. Then I realized I could no longer make or receive calls. Every so often I would get a notification for voicemail, but I could not access the message. When I was finally able to contact them (which, how am I supposed to call them when my phone doesn't work, I ask you?) they told me there was a tower down, and that they would reset my phone. THEN MY PHONE WENT CRAZY AND STARTED DOING ALL OF THESE THINGS ON ITS OWN. LIGHTS BLINKING AND WHATNOT. CREEPY. After that it worked for a few hours, but today it is back to the same. Thankfully I can still text, so I am not completely cut off from everyone else, although why that works but nothing else does I have no idea. Obviously cellular technology is beyond my grasp. BUT THE VERY WORST NEWS OF ALL IS THAT I HAVE NO INTERNET ON MY PHONE. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO READ PORN WHILE IN LINE AT THE GROCERY STORE? OR STUCK IN THE WAITING ROOM AT THE DENTIST? THIS IS A TRAGEDY, I TELL YOU.

How are all of you? What do you do when you get stuck in the waiting room at the dentist and porn is not an option? FRIDAY YAY, Y/Y?

ETA: IN THE TIME IT TOOK ME TO MAKE THIS POST, I HAVE LOST THE ABILITY TO TEXT. THIS MUST BE WHAT IT WAS LIKE IN THE OLDEN DAYS WHEN PEOPLE HAD TO MAKE DO WITHOUT ELECTRICITY AND INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES AND STARBUCKS D:

Updates!

A few updates on yesterday's post:
  • Apparently the picture of bb Colin is him as Ferdinand from The Tempest and not South Pacific, so no singing after all. But for anyone who was dying at the idea of showtunes!Colin THAT IS WHAT FANFIC IS FOR. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] gealach_ros for figuring it out.

  • Many of you balked when I commented about the inappropriateness of me perving on the idea of 20 year old Colin. It occurred to me after I posted that half of my friends list is 20 HAHA. SO YES. NOT SO INAPPROPRIATE FOR YOU. But as someone who is, well, NOT TWENTY, I can't help but think OH GOD SO WRONG for about 3 seconds before saying FUCK IT, HE'S LEGAL. I do have my limits though. Legal or not, I cannot in good conscience perv on anyone born in the 90s D:

  • Today is the interview with Colin and Bradley on the Paul O'Grady show. It's December. I NEED TO KNOW THE STATUS OF BRADLEY'S FACIAL HAIR ASAP. PEOPLE WHO ARE BRITISH, PLEASE, SOMEONE LEAVE ME A COMMENT RIGHT AWAY AND LET ME KNOW IF IT IS THERE OR NOT. ETA: BEARD WATCH 2009 = FACIAL HAIR STILL PRESENT :(( I guess you don't have to be British, you just have to be from somewhere other than the fascist state of America where we don't let in any crazy foreign TV that might corrupt our children. I know there will be screencaps and uploads and all that good stuff eventually, but I am greedy and impatient. YOU WILL HAVE MY UNDYING LOVE AND DEVOTION <3

I will leave you with a story that is amusing to probably no one but me: I have one of those iPod docking stations that is a charger/speaker/clock combination that sits in my kitchen. I put my iPod on it yesterday to charge, and somehow inadvertently set the alarm. FOR 3 AM. So in the wee hours of the morning, the alarm went off at top volume and I jumped up in a panic thinking, OH MY GOD SOMEONE HAS BROKEN INTO MY HOUSE... AND IS PLAYING PASSION PIT? I was strangely comforted by the idea that the burglar had good taste in music before I realized what was going on. Yeah, IDEK.

Okay, so I have been planning to do a general Merlin picspam for the past couple weeks appreciating the prettiness of everyone involved since anything I want to say about the show someone else as already said, but then something happened and my plans changed. What was it, you ask? As I am sure everyone knows by now, Bradley has acquired some facial hair. PLEASE NOTE THAT I DID NOT SAY BRADLEY GREW A BEARD, BECAUSE I AM AFRAID THAT HE DID NOT.

OKAY. So first I should say that I am not anti-facial hair as a rule, but this thing that Bradley has going on? NOT GOOD. NOT GOOD AT ALL. I realize that people seem to be very happy about it as evidenced by the reactions I am seeing, and of course I respect any an all opinions, but my opinion is a an unequivocal FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY PLEASE SHAVE IT OFF RIGHT NOW BRADLEY.

This week's episode is a very good example in why Bradley should make a date with a razor. Some of you may know it as Beauty and the Beast, Part 2, but I like to think of it as Prince Arthur: A Study in How to Look Hot While Brooding.

Spoilers for 2.06 in the way of one very pretty prince )

So my plans for the evening fell through, and since this week was kind of stressful, I did what anyone in my position would do: cracked open a bottle of wine and the Halloween candy. I'm now 2 glasses in with a sugar buzz and I am dying to know something. HOW DO YOU EAT YOUR SKITTLES? Me, I eat them by color, starting with my least favorite and going to the ones I like best. That means I eat all the green ones first, then orange, then yellow, then red, then purple. If the red ones were cherry, they would undoubtedly be my favorite but they are not. THEY ARE STRAWBERRY. LAME. My number one favorite Halloween candy of all time is Reese's peanut butter cups WHICH ARE EVEN BETTER IF YOU ADD A NICE LAYER OF PEANUT BUTTER TO THE TOP.

ALSO: Since I am sitting here with nothing to do but get drunk and hopped up on candy, gimme a prompt and maybe I will write something - think teeny tiny ficlet sized prompts, because I don't have the attention span to sustain much tonight. I'll take any pairing I've written in the past. Likelihood of completion is perfectly negatively correlated with amounts of alcohol and sugar consumed.

OKAY YOU GUYS. I am totally supposed to be writing now. AS IN, PORN. LOTS OF PORN. But first just look what I have to show you:
  • This art from the kink meme. I MEAN HOLY SHIT, RIGHT? I love so, so many things about it - Merlin's magical sparkle, Arthur sprawled out like he owns the fucking place, and of course Gwen. I MEAN CHECK HER OUT. HOW HOT DOES SHE LOOK? Also, I desperately want her shoes.
  • [livejournal.com profile] crack_camelot is a reccing community for all ships and is in need of reccers, so get over there. What are you waiting for?

AND NOW I AM BACK TO THE PORN. It is a hard life.

HALP.

OKAY YOU GUYS. I need your help. It might be possible that I heard a rumor about a repeat of Minimerlin. IT MIGHT ALSO BE POSSIBLE THAT I KNOW PEOPLE WHO KNOW THINGS ABOUT THIS. I CANNOT SAY MORE AT THIS TIME.

BUT THIS IS WHERE I NEED YOU. I NEED TO FIND SOME PEOPLE WHO KNOW THINGS. OR PEOPLE WHO KNOW PEOPLE. PEOPLE WHO KNOW THINGS ABOUT RUNNING CONS AND PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT LAME (AKA PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT ME.) So, do you know things about running cons? Do you know people who know people? YOU WILL HAVE MY UNDYING GRATITUDE AND ETERNAL LOVE. NO JOKE.

In other news, I just opened a bottle of wine that had a screw top instead of a cork and am currently drinking it out of a mug. BECAUSE I AM CLASSY LIKE THAT.
cherrybina: (Default)
Okay so I failed at Day 2 of Merlin Week, so to make up for it, I am making you an offer. Gimme a prompt and I'll write you an itty-bitty ficlet-y thing. IDK. Something 500 words or less, since I have to, you know, POST THEM DURING MERLIN WEEK.

I am making my life easier here and saying Arthur/Merlin only BUT IF YOU BUTTER ME UP WITH PRAISE YOU MIGHT CONVINCE ME TO WRITE GWEN/MORGANA - THAT MEANS YOU [livejournal.com profile] puckling. So prompt me! Then go post awesome stuff to your own journal in honor of this very special week!

If you don't I will have no choice but to post my SYPHILIS!ARTHUR FIC TOMORROW. Do you want that? I mean, everyone besides [livejournal.com profile] graspthethorn.

I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CAP THE NUMBER OF PROMPTS I FILL BECAUSE [livejournal.com profile] reel_merlin DEADLINE IS FRIGHTENINGLY CLOSE D:
cherrybina: (Default)
Title: Something Beautiful
Author: [livejournal.com profile] cherrybina
Pairing Arthur/Merlin
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~5,000
Summary: King Arthur meets his new manservant, a 16-year-old boy named Merlin. Written for this prompt at [livejournal.com profile] kinkme_merlin.
Warnings: Sex between an adult and a teenager, in case that wasn't obvious from the summary.

Notes: Normally I leave kink meme fic over there, where I can be all like WAIT WHAT NO OF COURSE I DID NOT WRITE SUCH A THING WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT, but I am reposting this, which is probably the most morally dubious thing I've written yet, because I might be writing more? YEAH IDEK. Also: thanks to [livejournal.com profile] derryere who makes me feel like I'm not alone, no matter where my head goes.

Something Beautiful )
cherrybina: (Default)
I am still slowly working my way through the Merlin Big Bang fics. My god, some of you people wrote a lot of words.

ALSO: No Merlin tonight. I know, I know, it sucks, but remember that we get two episodes next week! AND THEY ARE THE TWO GAYEST EPISODES OF ALL. Oh, and here is some IMPORTANT INFORMATION: the show normally starts at 8, but next week, it will start at 7 to accommodate both of the episodes. That means the party will start at 7 pm EDT one week from tonight (we are GMT-5, so that's midnight for you England people at 1 am for the rest of Europe.) Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] anothersoapbox for pointing this out :D

And now I am off to go fret about my [livejournal.com profile] reel_merlin fic some more D:

ETA: Ever since [livejournal.com profile] luisadeza asked for the top 5 reasons to ship Bradley and Colin, I have been going back to rewatch the video diaries and all the extras. JFC THESE BOYS. MY GOD. Now I am dying for RPS, so someone go write some for me, yeah? Or I suppose you could just rec your favorite RPS fic, please and thank you <3

HELP!

Okay so this is kind of a weird request. Does anyone know of a good way to find a clip of something kind of random? Like for example, say I wanted to find a generic scene of kids playing on a playground. Is there some sort of resource for people who make vids that can help with this? Or a place where I can ask such a question? It just seems like watching 8 billion movies to find the right scene and then ripping a whole DVD for a clip a few seconds long is not very efficient.

I've tried Google and YouTube but to no avail. What I really need is clipsofrandomshit.com.
cherrybina: (Default)
First things first. Wasn't there supposed to be a preview of the Merlin Big Bang stories starting yesterday? I didn't see anything posted at [livejournal.com profile] boxofmagic. DID I MISS SOMETHING? But you guys, you guys. Preview or not, the big bangs go live in a week, and THERE ARE SO MANY. I have had the privilege of reading two of them, both of which are amazing. The two I read totaled 120K words, so THESE WRITERS DO NOT FUCK AROUND WHEN THEY SAY BIG.

In other news, I made some progress on the magical glitter fic, but I am just so easily distracted by the shiny, so I keep writing OTHER THINGS. FOR EXAMPLE: [livejournal.com profile] ontd_ai kink meme prompts. Or, you know, Bradley and Colin napping together. Also, I am working on stories for [livejournal.com profile] reel_merlin and [livejournal.com profile] queenbitchfest, as well as this other thing I am writing which involves Merlin wanking. AGAIN. Because it appears as though I have developed something of a kink. BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT THIS TIME ARTHUR GETS TO WATCH :D

So yes, slow boring morning at work which means me frantically scribbling bits of fic in my notepad and begging my flist to entertain me. TALK TO ME PEOPLE. How are all of you? Are you excited for Merlin big bang stories? What are you writing? HOW IS BRADLEY SO PRETTY ANYWAY? AND HOW AM I GOING TO SURVIVE ANOTHER FOUR DAYS WITHOUT [livejournal.com profile] derryere?

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.

Today I mentioned to [livejournal.com profile] derryere that I have this unfortunate habit of laughing when people fall down. Not because I'm trying to be obnoxious, but because I am physically unable to stop. There is just something inherently funny about falling down. Once, I was sitting on the couch minding my own business when I heard a ruckus from the stairs. It was the sound of The Boy falling down the steps.

Bina: WTF.
The Boy: I - I FELL.
Bina: *CACKLES MADLY*
The Boy: OMG I'M HURT.
Bina: *FALLS OFF COUCH DUE TO LAUGHTER*

LIKE SERIOUSLY. I am crying with laughter right now recounting this story. And then the other day, my sister called to tell me she fell at work (she works at Starbucks and slipped on some Frappucino mix or something) and again, I was unable to refrain from laughing so hard I nearly busted a rib. She was like THANKS, BITCH. And still, I laughed and laughed. WHY IS THIS SO FUNNY? IDK.

Okay! So poll time. After finishing my last fic, I threw down my metaphorical pen and declared that I'd never write again. That lasted approximately 2 days. Now I am trying to decide what to work on next. I have narrowed it down to the few things that I actually have a reasonable chance of completing at some point in the near(ish) future.

[Poll #1427609]

I fall a little bit more in love with Kris Allen every day. It's funny because up until a few weeks before the finale I was completely bored with him. In fact, I kept forgetting who he was. Every Wednesday, Coworker-with-a-crush-on-Adam and I would do our weekly rundown of the performances, and early on, I could never remember his name or what he sang. Slowly but surely he has won me over, mostly by being awesome. AND BY HAVING A GIANT CRUSH ON ADAM. Don't get me wrong - I am still mad as hell that Adam didn't win, but Kris just keeps being ridiculously awesome and who can resist that, really?

[livejournal.com profile] summerpornathon! I love that my flist is getting all into it. OBVIOUSLY I HAVE TO SAY THAT TEAM LUST WILL TAKE YOU ALL DOWN. WITH LUST. Yay, porn!

Oh, and also: Inspired by [livejournal.com profile] derryere's prompt swap idea, I wrote my first [livejournal.com profile] kinkme_merlin comment fic. Apparently I fail at anon posting at 1 in the morning, so! Not anon after all. I actually figured it out after I posted the first bit (I AM JUST A LITTLE BIT SLOW OKAY), but I couldn't be arsed to delete it and start over. Anyway, have some random comment fic.
