Merlin features here a lot. So does Supernatural. Those are my two main fandoms at the moment, though others flash in and out every so often. Even now that Merlin's ended (you have no idea how much I cried. I all-out sobbed. For weeks, and I'm not even joking), you can still expect more fics for that fandom from me. I shan't be abandoning Camelot any time soon, I assure you.
I have a serious brother-complex. Guy-guy relationships of the best-friend variety are my absolute favourite kind of fic. Also, I'm wholeheartedly of the opinion that two guys don't need to actually be related for them to be brothers. If there's a bromance to be had, I'm on it like a shot. Arthur and Merlin, Merlin and Gwaine, Dean and Cas, Sam and Dean, Sherlock and John... I love it. I'm a bit of a bromance addict.
Favourite Quote Ever:
We do not give up. Our bodies are gradually dying, but we ourselves are being made stronger each day. These little troubles are getting us ready for an eternal glory which will make all our troubles seem like nothing. Things that are seen don't last forever, but things that are not seen are eternal. That's why we keep our minds on the things that can't be seen.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
On the topic of Merlin...
Merlin is, and shall forever remain, my absolute all-time favourite television show. I fell in love with Camelot and all her wonderful characters when the show first started, and in the five years that have followed have absolutely delighted in following Merlin and Arthur in all their adventures.
For the love of Camelot - to everyone who had a hand in the show's creation... thank you.
I think you're mad - I think you're all mad; people should marry for love, not convenience, and if Uther thinks that an unhappy king makes for a great king, then he's wrong. Because you may be destined to become the greatest king Camelot has ever known, but you have a choice as to how you do it.
-- Merlin to Arthur, Merlin 3x06: The Changeling
Something that will make Merlin fans weep tears of joy and grief at the same time...
Look up We Have Had the Time of Our Lives by Tyrone Wells on Youtube. The song is beyond utterly perfect for the post-Season-Five world we now find ourselves in. There are a pair of Merlin Tributes to the song, and they're just... beautiful.
Trust me. You'll hear it once and want to download it to your iPod immediately.
The Carbon Copy 'Verse:
Originally intended to just be a oneshot, my Supernatural/Dark Angel fic has grown into a full universe. In chronological order, the following are the fics that make up my Carbon Copy 'Verse, which follows Sam, Dean and Alec in their various (mis)adventures:
The series isn't complete yet, and Ben is probably going to come into it at some point, but - fair warning: updates are likely to be sporadic, depending on the demands of Real Life. But I do promise you - I'm not done with this 'verse. There will be more.
The issue of Dean Winchester's hair colour...
Seriously, what is all this talk about Dean having blonde hair?? The guy hasn't been blonde since he was four years old. Look up Dean Winchester on Google Images. In none of those pictures does he have blonde hair. THE MAN'S HAIR IS DARK, PEOPLE. Light-to-dark brown, depending on the lighting. Never blonde. And yet, I keep coming across fics where authors say "Dean ran a hand through his blonde hair" or "the blonde locks falling across Dean's forehead" or other such lines. And yes, there was a time when Jensen Ackles had blonde hair, but that was years ago and well before he took the role of Dean Winchester. If anyone can show me a CURRENT picture of Dean/Jensen where he has blonde hair, I shall accept it. Until then, it does not make any sense to me why people keep calling him blonde. Bradley James has blonde hair. Jensen Ackles does not.
A note on my older stories...
My earliest stories are... pretty dodgy. Anything posted 2007 or earlier is really not that crash hot. But you know what? I'm proud of them anyway. Because they show how much I've developed as a writer, and how much I've improved since I first started on this site. Some people get rid of their old, crappy stories, but I'm going to keep mine, because they're a clear indication of progress. So that's those first few bodgy old stories are still up here.
Fics that I would love to see someone do:
These are various quotes and ideas that I don't have stories for, but that someone else might. If one of these happens to inspire you enough that you write a fic for it, please let me know. I would love to read it.
It is a rare and beautiful thing to be completely understood by another. - PK Shaw.
It is by the promise of power that evil often attracts the weak. - Eric Hoffer.
Fate leads the willing, and drags along the reluctant. - Seneca.
...though a righteous man falls seven times, he rises again... - Proverbs 24:16.
Fools rush in where angels fear to tread. - Alexander Pope
The Funniest Thing I Have Ever Read On The Internet (Possibly Ever, Period):
It's a blog written by someone in America, and I honestly have never laughed harder in my life. My favourites include: The Alot, Dog, A Better Pain Scale, and The God of Cake. That being said, there were very few posts that DIDN'T end with me in absolute throes of laughter, but if you come across one of the more serious ones first, don't stop there. Look at the "Best Of" ones - it's worth it, I promise. Be warned: it will make you cry, it's so funny, and your stomach will hurt from all the laughing.
The sweetest thing in all my life has been the longing - to reach the Mountain; to find the place where all the beauty comes from. My country; the place I ought to have been born. Do you think it all meant nothing, all the longing? The longing for Home? For indeed it feels not like going, but like going back.
-- C. S. Lewis
The world's still the same, mate. There's just... less in it.
-- Jack Sparrow, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
(Arguably) The most inspirational quote in the world:
Sam: I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened?
But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer.
Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something. Even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back only they didn't. Because they were holding on to something.
Frodo: What are we holding on to, Sam?
Sam: That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it's worth fighting for.
-- Samwise Gamgee and Frodo Baggins, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers by JRR Tolkien
Courage is not one of the virtues. Courage is every one of the virtues at it's testing point.
-- C. S. Lewis
If Narnia is a game, then Aslan is but a dream, both here and there, and then His forgiveness means nothing. And without His mercy and love I am forever lost. We are forever lost. Susan, when you are ready to be found, He is here to find you... as He once found me.
-- Edmund, Not Ready to be Found, by Lirenel (http://www.fanfiction.net/u/241274/Lirenel)
The term is over; the holidays have begun. The dream is ended; this is the morning.
