spacemonkeyluvn: (merlin:: two sides of the same coin)
I don't often rec fic. I get nervous about telling people what I like for some reason. *shrug* I have been reading some really good fic lately though. Mostly Sherlock. Surprise, surprise. I will actually be in a couple fandoms, but only read for my 'main' one. IDK. And often times the fic for pairings I ship are too OOC or they just feel weird to me. For instance, I like House/Wilson, but I don't really like reading fic about them. I love Peter/Neal, but same thing. And I love Merlin/Arthur, but there are so many high school/modern AUs and fics that just aren't what I'm looking for. Merlin can be a cracky/silly show, but it also has a serious side. When it comes to Merlin fic, I like it to be a little longer and have more of a plot. Maybe because there's an element of mythology and history to it that I just love. Nothing wrong with porn, but give me some story too.

TL;DR
Read this fic - These Castle Walls Bleed Lies (Merlin/Arthur) R and spoilers for all aired episodes (especially the most recent finale because it takes place after that)

Also, I feel bad because I haven't read [livejournal.com profile] roadstergal and [livejournal.com profile] kahvi's latest work in the Sherlock fandom. I've been terrible at reading and instead spending most of my time at [livejournal.com profile] holmesverse. But I've set aside tomorrow so I can properly read it and not do my usual 'hey, I think I'll start this long fic even though it's 1am and I'm kind of tired' and then stay up all night and not even remember what I've read the next day! *headdesk*

Oh, and since I'm already here, a vid rec because DINOSAURS HAVE FEELINGS TOO!!!!!!!!!

I feel bad for anyone who has stopped watching Merlin because of Arthur/Gwen. It's not like this was unexpected, guys. Sheesh. Anyway, I'm posting because I've seen a particular picture floating around regarding the next couple episodes (including the finale) and while being exciting and attractive, it doesn't make me nearly as excited as this only slightly different version that I've just seen. Maybe y'all have already seen it, but this one is making me far more excited for the finale than I care to admit.

WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN?! )

Also, about this week's episode... )
spacemonkeyluvn: (holmes:: Yes.What.Yes.)
I could be asleep. I should be asleep. But instead I'm quite awake and doing this:



I. Don't even. Know. I like the idea of the castle there, but the only nice and big enough picture I could find atm has the boats and I could live without them 0_o

Also, watched Merlin. Actually not hating the Arthur/Gwen too much. She'd be a great queen and good for the kingdom. Besides, we all know she ends up with Lancelot and Arthur with Merlin. They ARE two sides of the same coin after all :P God, I can't wait for when Merlin's secret is revealed/Arthur finds out. I want EPIC angst but a love that prevails. *nods*
spacemonkeyluvn: (dw:: wonderment)
Ok, so I'm feeling a little better now. Still anxious/nervous, but better. I have a tendency to overreact and get stuck inside my head. It's not a pretty place to be sometimes ;) But I went out with a friend, we got food, I bought 2 tops from Old Navy (which I feel guilty about now and I'm going to return at least one of them), and we talked for a bit. I've also watched Community and now I'll watch Never Mind the Buzzcocks and then some Merlin and just not think about things right now. I'll deal with things tomorrow and just one step at a time.

In other news:

* My son is gay. Or he’s not. I don’t care. He is still my son. And he is 5. And I am his mother. And if you have a problem with anything mentioned above, I don’t want to know you.

* Newest favorite Merlin vid (and ear candy). I'm not sure why, but I'm back into Merlin big time. I don't know if I'm just excited it's back or it's filling the space left by DW, or now Sherlock, but I'm loving it.

I feel like there's more, but I'm tired and my brain is all over the place at the best of times ;)

ETA: Noel and Jedward on NMTB was EXACTLY what I needed right now. They make 'Dappy look like Stephen Fry' LOL

Spoilers for Merlin )

So I'm giving my 2 weeks notice to my manager on Monday (as well as a copy to the DSM and HR, just in case) but I'll be staying until the 30th I think. Technically my last day would be Monday the 25th, but she already has the schedule done up until the end of that week and I'm scheduled have Saturday the 30th off anyway so it would just be for 4 more days. I'm trying to be optimistic about the whole thing. I mean, I didn't want to be there forever anyway. You just get so comfortable in a place and it's scary thinking about moving on. In fact, every time I think about it, I get all anxiety-y. Ooooh, this is gonna suck. But every time I have to talk to the Co-manager, I know that this is the right decision. The next few weeks are going to be uncomfortable... Plus I found a pair of knee-high boots at work that fit over my massive calves and I'm totally buying them. The last thing I'll buy from that store. Better get my discount while I can!






ETA: And while I'm still awake (at 2am), 101010 - HAPPY 42 DAY!
