 Yeah so stealing these from [livejournal.com profile] xaritomene 

The Works In Progress meme. Open your WIP file and post the names of all your documents, regardless of of how non-descriptive or ridiculous. Feel free to ask about anything and I'll tell you the premise or paste you a tidbit for any of these. HAH.
random titles that probably make no sense )

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line (or first and second line if it's completely impossible) from the first 30 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing. (instrumentals skipped, obvs.)
Step 3: Strike out the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like the game post your own!

lots of lyrics )

Turkey Day

1) Happy Thanksgiving!
You know that thing people do where everyone says what they're thankful for, blah blah blah? Well, I'm thankful for my flist, all you lovely peoples, who still talk to me even though I do silly things like disappear for two months. For everyone who does celebrate it, happy turkey day, and if you're one of the many who doesn't just know you are appreciated ♥


2) Holiday cards!
I like sending them. So if you want one, please let me know! And seriously, even if we don't talk a whole lot, that's still cool.  I will possibly be doing drabbles with the cards (time permitting) so if you want a card please let me know 1) that you want a card, 2) if you want a drabble, and 3) what sort of drabble thingies you'd like. Oh and, what sort of card you'd prefer (like, if a specific holiday, which one). And then PM/email me your postal address, (or if you prefer electronic, your email address).

More... )

Oh, and have you folks seen pinterest yet? It's pretty cool and stuff. Pinning things is way too addicting.

This is completely random (and possibly ill-advised), but:

I'm thinking of making a merlin/arthur animated mood theme. I have the one [livejournal.com profile] wikked_angel_78 made right now, but that's only S1, and I know she's closed it for downloading.  So I guess I'm wondering if there'd be any interest?  I'm half-considering making it purely for my personal use, but it is very time consuming, so it'd be nice if it got a bit more use. What do you think?

In other news:
Signed up for [livejournal.com profile] reel_merlin  today! I snagged Taking Woodstock, which I wanted so very badly, so I am super excited! 

[livejournal.com profile] spy_fest  is coming together well.  [livejournal.com profile] annephoenix has been an absolute star co-modding.  ILU bb!  We have several submissions, and quite a few just-need-to-be-beta'd fics.  Now if I could just get to writing my fic...

Still working on my fic for [livejournal.com profile] dk323 - I have been a bit crap at getting it done quickly, but it moves along slowly but surely.  Future!Merlin and Arthur are having some good times *nods*

Also still working on those requested drabbles - I just need to type them up really!

And I'm doing [livejournal.com profile] merlin20in20 again - for Arthur (Bradley) & [livejournal.com profile] merlinicons100 for Colin Morgan. I'm really quite pleased with how some of my recent icons have been turning out.  I feel I'm improving ^_^

AND OMG TEAM MOTHERFUCKING MERLIN WON ROUND THREE AT [livejournal.com profile] merlin_land. We are just too awesome :p

Right, so, guess what came in the mail today??

Spooks Season 7! (Yes, I know that's from 2008 - being a US fan sucks :/) It was just released here, and we just got the first two discs from Netflix! *is super excited*

I admit, I was very, very sad to see Adam Carter die in episode 1. I knew it was coming, but... I've grown very fond of him, despite a rocky start. (Tom will always be my secret favorite :p). But LUCAS NORTH!!!! Hotdamn, it's Guy of Gisborne without the (gu)eyeliner! WHAT IS THIS MADNESS?!?! I'm really liking him a whole lot so far, even if he is Adam's replacement...even though it was only one episode, I really liked the Adam-Lucas dynamic. Wish it could've lasted a little longer, but then, Adam's death was so well-written I don't even mind that much. But Jo! Oh my Jo, what are they doing to her??? *sigh*

So yes, I'm in a very, very, very happy place right now! SPOOKS FTW!
(and we'll just forget that pretty much my entire f-list is AR or Merlin fans, and I have no idea if any of you care about Spooks...ah well, have to squee to someone :p)

<- VIEW THE HOT! I DID NOT KNOW HE HAD SUCH AMAZING ABS!

(And like, on important stuff I'm supposed to be doing instead of watching TV shows, I am working on it. Expect a whole lot of stuff posted in the near future.)

Let’s make a magical wave throughout LJ. When you see this entry, post a picture of the show to your own journal.




Yeah so a little late aboard this bandwagon, but how could I resist?? And sorry for the large image - it's from a picspam that I did all the graphics work for months ago and then never actually posted...huh. I should see about that...right after I finish the other 20 million things on my to do list... :p

...but somehow a fun post on [livejournal.com profile] ontd_merlin ended up with me trying to make manips for the first time.

Clicky to see... )

Check out the comments in this post if you're a member (or just join - it's fun) to see more Bond manips! Come on, you know you want to ;)

OMG GUYS!!! WHO'S SEEN SHERLOCK HOLMES?! BECAUSE IT IS SO EPIC AND GAH THE HOLMES/WATSON SUBTEXT!!!!!!! IT'S ROBERT DOWNEY JR. AND JUDE LAW TOGETHER ON SCREEN BEING BAMFS!!! WHAT MORE CAN YOU WANT IN LIFE?!?!

*ahem*

So yes, anyways, I think I've found a new fandom to flail in, in addition to my Merlin and my AR. 

Under the cut:
Some videos abrandnewboom found. )

Also, please distract me here! Comment on something anything, start a random discussion with me, ask me a question, talk about the weather, anything you want! Just please save me from my Merlin Santa fic that I've been banging my head against for 4 hours!

ETA: spelling mistakes fixed. I was so capslockyjoy that I couldn't even type!

*cough* Right, so [livejournal.com profile] nyxelestia and I seem to have the most interesting late night (or early morning in my case - damn time zones) conversations on IM and, well. Some things need to be shared.

Aside from apparently having Arthur and Merlin on my side, doing the nasty on my bed (no matter what Nyxie may tell you about the comfort of her bed, or a certain dedication of poetry to it - filthy lies, all of it), and having kinkme_merlin prompts literally flung at me last night, we also had an Epic Life-Changing Revelation. I was skulking around Merlin fandom land, and found: this. The following occured at 5:19AM EST:

[livejournal.com profile] arithilim: I channeled Merlin without realizing
[livejournal.com profile] arithilim: Also, go watch this
[livejournal.com profile] arithilim: http://ifyouweremine.livejournal.com/164292.html#cutid1
[livejournal.com profile] arithilim: Naow.
[livejournal.com profile] nyxelestia: [insert the laughing emoticon of Y!IM]
[livejournal.com profile] arithilim: And this
[livejournal.com profile] arithilim: http://ifyouweremine.livejournal.com/158172.html#cutid1
[livejournal.com profile] nyxelestia: [insert the rofl emoticon of Y!IM]
[livejournal.com profile] arithilim: I just keep watching it over and over
[livejournal.com profile] nyxelestia: I wonder what would happen if they actually turned out to be gay...
[livejournal.com profile] arithilim: ah, the world would implode from fangirl glee and then we wouldn't have to rely on manips to stare at
[livejournal.com profile] nyxelestia: [insert the laughing emoticon of Y!IM]
[livejournal.com profile] arithilim: Also, I would name my first two boy children bradley and colin
[livejournal.com profile] arithilim: even though I'm not particuarly fond of either name
[livejournal.com profile] nyxelestia: [insert the rofl emoticon of Y!IM]
[livejournal.com profile] nyxelestia: Just the boy children?
[livejournal.com profile] nyxelestia: Hey, Jamie and Morgan are unisex names..
[livejournal.com profile] nyxelestia: ...*
[livejournal.com profile] arithilim: Well, I mean, Colleen, ok, but, Bradlina?
[livejournal.com profile] arithilim: true, true

Aside from the rather worrying number of times I was laughed at, re-looking at this conversation led me to discover the really very worrying size of my little-fan-girl crush on Bradley James and Colin Morgan. I therefore spent today eating copious amounts chocolate and watching youtube videos of their interviews. I AM SO SCREWED PEOPLE. SO SCREWEDDDD.

(also, I am shamelessly comandeering [livejournal.com profile] ifyouweremine's tag of bradley motherfucking james because honestly, I have never heard anything that was so perfect in my life.)
