My brain is made of wool and a Merlin Fic Rec

Fic Rec: Am prionnsa, an t-amadan agus na meirlich, by [profile] kazaera (Merlin fic).
Wonderful character voice, just generally wonderful characterisation, just enough plot to keep the story moving along, and to be perfectly blunt, nicely hitting all my narrative kinks (which, for those of you who don't know include both h/c and The Big Reveal). If you like Merlin, read this.


Also, a psychiatrist has knitted herself an exact replica of the human brain. How is this not awesome?

Bits and Bobs

One of the more... interesting things about being 12 or so hours out of sync with 90% of LJ (between living in Oz and a complete ban on LJ at work) is going to bed with everything all fine and dandy, and coming back the next afternoon/evening and realising there's been a complete panic doing the rounds. *cue frantic catching up*

On another topic, since I know there were a couple of people resisting the lure of Merlin due to worries about historical inaccuracy, I want to link this post by [personal profile] icarusancalion, discussing the mythological roots of the Arthurian legend. Interesting stuff. And no, I'm not just trying to convert people - anyone who is interested enough in Arthurian legend to be bothered by the (many) diversions from commonly accepted legend should find this post fascinating.

And I need some Merlin icons, if I'm going to keep talking about this show.

That Merlin show...

I was going to rave about the most recent episode of Merlin, but then I watched the trailers for next week - GAH! Can't believe I have to wait another week...

Yep, it's official. I'm addicted. PLEASE tell me other people on my flist are watching this show, I need people to geek out about it with.

The last thing I need now is another fandom...

Ah, it's nice to be back with regular internet access again. Well, technically I've had access all week, but I've spent that time mainlining the BBC series Merlin. My god, that show is pure, pure crack. Slashy, silly, insane crack.

But since I'm now up to date, I spent this afternoon looking for Merlin vids to feed my habit. Hence, vid recs.

The Bitch Prince by Fabella ([profile] wistful_fever).
Summary: '"No. No way. There must be another Arthur because this one's an idiot!" We love Arthur, Merlin loves Arthur, but wow, some days, he is so close to being smothered with a pillow.'

Beverly Hills by [personal profile] giandujakiss
Summary: Camelot = Beverly Hills. 'Nuff Said.

For a complete change of pace:
Non Lievi Alchun by [profile] halcyon_shift
Summary: 'For it giveth unto all lovers courage.' Morgana/Gwen.

And, for your Random Fandom rec, this vid by [personal profile] bananainpyjamas singlehandedly made me want to start to watch Smallville again. Must... resist... the urge...
