The Definition of a Life Saved by shinetheway, Merlin/Arthur - wow. It starts with a head injury and ends with a difficult truth. I just--have no words adequate to describe the punch at the end. A very good, slightly chilling punch.

Virginal by kaneko, Merlin/Arthur - so unicorn is the euphemism everyone is using these days? Yes. It seems to be.

Coming of Age by astolat, gen - the mythology alone woven through this would make it worth a drop everything and read, but the characterization is perfect. Sequel to Beltane, the legend of when a god bedded a human woman and what came of the child she bore.

Well, that was good for me. How 'bout you?

reminder - overheardfandom

Because I just remembered it was there, too, and after posting have been reading back through to see what I missed....

overheardfandom moderated by slodwick, is a sort of metaquotes for fangirls. This is a very subtle way to inspire posting there, since lets face it, who among us really wants to do work when we can read funny things?

Thought not.

Go. Post funny things. Don't make me actually work today, plz. I will post fic in exchange!

(Note: Got Dance Dance Revolution 2 for Child's Birthday. Did you know that the training module grades you? Did anyone know I used to get really competitive when I was in high school regarding grades? I bet you can guess how that went. OMG so much fun. You know, when I could move again after collapsing on the couch begging for an oxygen mask or death. Also, I only got up to a B. Bastards.)

merlinfic: so are they all, all honourable men 1/2

Title: So Are They All, All Honourable Men
Author: Seperis
Codes: Arthur, Merlin, Morgana, Gwen, Gaius, Uther, Arthur/Merlin
Rating: NC-17
Spoilers: season one
Summary: Considering Arthur's future wife will be chosen less for compatibility than for her political value, Merlin may be the only marriage he'll have that won't end in bloodshed or a great deal of fortifying wine.
Author Notes: My thanks to green_grrl and elke_tanzer for beta and remarks and lots and lots of poking and to transtempts for encouraging the entire thing. And a special thanks to oxoniensis for picking away the Americanisms with great patience and my solemn promise that should you ever agree to do so again, I will use *five* variations of 'got' just for you. Promise. Thank you very, very much.
