there's a great deal to be said for less obsessive hobbies. what, though, i have no idea.

So I am up early due to the fact that shinetheway was staring at my AIM window demanding--demanding--fic and then--okay. Fic-farr. Yes, I stole the concept from vidders, who got it from Star Trek, but. Fic-farr. I was--seriously--doodling down this idea I'd thought was funny and then it was twelve hours later and I have a ten thousand word count and a plot. And I tried to sleep--I mean, I did. At which time I mentally counted off the minutes until I could legitimately claim I'd tried to sleep so I could get up and go back and write more of it. Because it's not near done. There's a plot, and it's also not funny anymore, and I have a vague suspicion someone is going to die by sword in the very near word-count future. Which you know, I approve of, so it's not like I'm complaining. Personally, I feel any fic can be made better with a death by sword. Preferably when Arthur is holding the sword. And sword is not being used as a euphemism for cock. Because that's wrong.

This is that freaking Dean/Castiel novel all over again, I swear. I was writing that one like if I stopped I'd bleed out on the floor or something. And it's just sitting there now. With no middle. But a great deal of porn. You can see how my priorities work. I always, always remember the porn.

I also discovered when I went back (ten minutes ago, give or take), with a kind of numb terror, that there is het. Which I have no problem with, if I were writing a het story. I don't even know what is going on, but I think it says something about me as a writer that writing het feels kinky. Which is weird, as my first two fandoms were het and once I stopped blushing myself into random fevers, I was all over the porn. And I still am. But there was this period of time where shinetheway and I were almost competitively hetting via AIM and I suddenly I realized there is no reason for anyone to go for the lube.

Lesson: write more het so you aren't so disturbed by writing about your own sexuality, kay?

Yeah, like that's going to take.

So all this hideous oversharing is to justify the following question--was the word clit in existence during Dark Ages Albion? As you know, we are all about the tomato sandwich historical accuracy. More specifically, is that going to be a dealbreaker? I mean, granted, Merlin is the fandom of slash dragons and Merlin being double-dicked by Arthur and Uther*. Clit cannot possibly be that revolutionary, comparatively speaking. And I will kill myself with my own keyboard if I have to go the euphemism route, because everything I know about euphemisms I learned from romance novels and badfic. Look at my icon. Does anyone really want to leave this to me flailing desperately for euphemisms? Really? Ponder that for a while.

* Oh hell no I am not linking to this. You can find it how I did--click on a fic with a Merlin/Arthur tag in delicious and find out someone forgot to mention a third cock and its owner are present, enthusiastically. Also, person who did this--one day. One day.

Adding: I have a faint suspicion that some time after I've slept, I will read this and really, really hate myself.
