I do hope those of you who celebrate had a lovely weekend, and those of you in the UK are having a fantastic four day weekend, my Easter is next week, so I was supposed to write my first extended essay. It is 4000 words on a topic that I am incredibly fascinated by (Am looking at Critical IR Theory and its tendency to fail at being critical because of its Western origin making it implicitly Eurocentric) and yet I didn’t.


And now a few things that have been on my mind, sort of ranty, but not really.


  • On Colin Morgan/Bradley James: They are just so precious. I have been reading fic and writing fic (A few thousand words for Merlin big bang, rewriting is a bitch, so I changed things round) and best of all falling for Colin and Bradley. So people have mentioned the Merlin DVD commentary before, but I had never seen it and then I did and it was pretty great, I love Colin’s accent and Bradley’s face, you guys I get it about Bradley’s face now and then I watched lots more stuff with them on youtube (This is some priceless commentary) and then I wrote more fic. I’ve never written RPS before, first time for everything, I guess. It’s not completely finished, and I need to write my essay, but I will probably post it later today.


  • On Amazonfail: Amazon responded, apparently it was just a glitch, don’t you just love that word? Someone fucked up, but a glitch explains it all. I am not saying I am not glad, because I really am and also so proud at the way this issue was publicised, I saw one of the original posts on it yesterday morning, signed the petition (there were less than a 100 signatures at that time) and then went on to read more epic Arthur/Merlin and a few hours later when I checked my flist it seemed the internet had exploded, and despite it being Easter everyone was around and outraged, from Neil Gaiman to Jezebel and this morning the petition has over 10 000 signatures. And that is pretty amazing, it just really pleases me what we can as a community achieve.


  • On Twitter: this is related to the above, because I have always been firmly against twitter, mostly because of the people who post all their tweets here which is incredibly irritating, but also because I don’t care what people I know or celebrities I love do every hour of every day and I think that this reflects the obsession with reality tv and it freaks me out a little bit, I mean what is next? Everyone is going to carry a camera pointed at their head for 24hr footage? And also when you do see people what do you talk about, when you already know everything they have done? But I am slowly changing my mind about this because I saw yesterday how useful Twitter can be for publicising things and I guess it can have its uses. Not that I am going to sign up, FB status updates are enough for me!

I just wasted an hour watching Merlin cast videos on youtube thanks to you! (There were numerous yt comments about CM's ears. I still don't get it!) They're adorable together, it seems like they all had so much fun.

They are adorable, aren't they? I love them! And his ears just add to his hugability, they totally do! And so instead of writing my essay I am currently writing about Colin Morgan drunkenly falling asleep in Bradley's bed. And am only a little bit ashamed of myself.

Yes. Did you see the bit where Bradley goes on an on about how Isaac's beauty puts him to shame and about his magnificent cheekbones? It is made of win. Still have no essay, but over 3000 words of fic. Am now ashamed. Thankfully library tomorrow.

Yes! His 'mancrush' or whatever was hilarious, but who can blame him? I also liked SC's appreciation of dessert, there's a man after my own heart. ;)
Oh wow, at least you were productive in one area! Sadly, cannot say the same for me.
