I guess it has been some time since the last update of my profile.

. Not that many things have changed in my life all this time,but anyway..

I am still practically in love with Merlin fandom,i can not find myself ready to move on yet,despite of the fact that the show is over for some time now..

I am still trying to put something on a paper... Probably i am not a good writer,if i can not finish something,or i am not a writer at all,for that matter!!

I will let you know when and if this chapter will be up!!
