I'm here.

Safe Space Post

The purpose of this post is to vent and I will listen. Maybe we're very close or maybe we're not, but it doesn't matter because I will still listen all the same. You can say whatever you want: you can cry, you can complain, you can ask for advice, you can get off your chest something that has been weighing on you, you can ramble on and on randomly just for a distraction, or anything else you want to say. I will not judge, but rather celebrate in the fact that I am being trusted with a secret. I will never tell a single soul anything you say in this post and there's nothing that you can't tell me. I will be happy to PM or email you a response, just let me know your preference.

The 'Screw You, Canon!' Merlin Art/Ficathon.


WELCOME TO THE SCREW YOU, CANON! MERLIN ART/FICATHON.

Canon has a long-standing tradition of screwing over ships we come to love and secretly wish will happen. BBC's Merlin is no exception. This Christmas, I say we make our own canon and embrace our doomed/rare/cracky ships!

HOW IT WORKS: You leave a comment with prompts in the comments. You respond to other prompts with fic or art. Love is shared! Yay!

THE GUIDELINES

1. All prompts must pertain to ships that have been, in one way or another, screwed over in canon. This can include pairings that had loads of chemistry but never led anywhere, suddenly decided to hate each other, and even characters that have had little or no actual screen-time. IE: established canon ships are not to be included here.
YES! Arthur/Morgana, Merlin/Morgana, Arthur/Merlin, Morgana/Gwen, Uther/Morgana, Leon/Morgana, Morgana/Morgause, etc.

NO! Arthur/Gwen, Lancelot/Gwen, Uther/Ygraine, Merlin/Freya, Uther/Catrina, etc.

**Note: The above are only a few examples. Also, I realize that some pairings may be considered canon by mere popularity, but this meme isn't focusing on fanon or subtext or Ho Yay. Just use your best discretion, and ask in the comments if you are unsure.


2. When filling prompts, please put "SHIP - TITLE OF FIC/ART - RATING" in the subject line. Prompts can include anything from song lyrics to plot ideas to colours. Let your imagination run wild.

3. There will be spoilers for all three series, so be warned!

4. NO DRAMA. There will likely be ships of all sorts. Het, slash, femmeslash, it's all welcome. If you have any issues with something you see, feel free to use your back button. Hate will not be tolerated, plzkthx!

5. Promote! You're welcome to use the following code:




** ETA: ** I have created a Diigo list to house all the prompts for easy access! You can filter down the search by tags. (And by all means, if a prompt has already been filled, don't let that stop you from adding another fill! There is no limit! :).)

The Arthur/Morgana-thon!

I know that I'm not the only one the slightest bit irritated by the current season of Merlin so far. Personally, I'm crushed with how the writers have suddenly decided to switch plots and relationships in S2. It's bad enough that they have neglected and butchered the dynamic between Arthur and Morgana from last season -- but the characterization of late (particularly with Arthur) is even more appalling :(.

It's extremely disheartening, so to combat the gloom, I present:



A celebration of all things Arthur/Morgana! Share your favourite quotes, show off a picspam, request/share fanfic/art/music/etc, and generally reminisce about S1 when we fell in love with these characters!

*THE KENSEI/ADAM LOVE-A-THON*

Consider this a group therapy section. You are not alone in your denial. *sniff*



It's time to spread the love for our favourite Immortal, Adam Monroe and/or Takezo Kensei! Whatever timeline :).


◘ Request fic or art, and pray that some kind soul will answer
◘ Post any fic or art you've made in light of 3x06
◘ Suggest AU plot ideas
◘ Discuss favourite moments/caps/lines
◘ Generally squee and fangirl <3


Anonymous commenting is on, IP Tracking is off.

If you feel the urge to request some Kensei porn but are a little too afraid to post under your username, go ahead and do it anonymously. We're not here to judge, only spread the love. And porn.


*Most importantly, PIMP 'TILL YOUR FINGERS START GOING NUMB!


[ There will be major spoilery talk in comments! You might want to turn back if you have not seen 3x06. ]

Go Faux For Fall.

Looking for a fall look that's cool, not cruel? Luckily for us (and animals), it's easier than ever to find to-die-for fashions and accessories that animals didn't have to die for. Not only are animal-friendly clothing and accessories more hip and humane than those made with fur, wool, or leather, they're also comfortable, durable, and guaranteed to keep you warm when the mercury dips.

With so many fashionable "fakes" available these days, there's no excuse for wearing any animal skins.

Check out the guide to compassionate shopping:
