Author: [livejournal.com profile] corilannam
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] phoenixacid
Pairings/characters: Merlin/Arthur
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~50,000
Warnings: Some descriptions of war violence
Summary: King Arthur sleeps in Avalon, waiting to return at the hour of Albion's greatest need. But once a year he awakes and spends a single day with Merlin, who will never, ever leave him.

Author's notes: My first thanks has to go to my amazing artist [livejournal.com profile] phoenixacid, who not only created stunningly beautiful artworks for the story, but was also a constant source of support, patience, and encouragement. I am not exaggerating when I say that this story would not exist without her. I would have quit on it a long time ago except that I couldn't bear the thought of giving her up as my artist! So much thanks and love to you, bb. I'm really glad you picked me!

Thanks also go, as usual, to [livejournal.com profile] chelseafrew, [livejournal.com profile] anna_zee, and [livejournal.com profile] stellarmeadow. Without their advice, this story would have been one hell of a hot mess. Thanks as well to all my twitter, LJ, and DC buds for listening to me angst over this damn thing for a really long time. And finally, I must thank our flawless mod, [livejournal.com profile] the_muppet. Posting at the end means I have no unique superlatives left to give her, but we all know how much she means to this fandom. Thank you for your years of incredibly hard work and this last, spectacular fest! ♥

1) If at some point over the last couple years you've heard me whining about a 20K gang bang that wasn't cooperating, I'm happy to say that it's finally done and posted as part of the amazing [livejournal.com profile] perverse_bang challenge. You can read it here -- Merlin's Night Off.

2) Remember the whole thing with Amazon selling fanfic? I did a guest editorial for Geek Syndicate on the subject. Feel free to come read and opine with me! http://geeksyndicate.co.uk/2013/05/29/amazon-looks-to-monetize-fanfic-with-kindle-worlds/

WHERE MY NERDS AT??? I saw this movie last night and I need to talk some hardcore Trek here.

Let's talk spoilers for STID )
corilannam: (original)
So my BFF [livejournal.com profile] chelseafrew (who asked to have her name redacted) recently bought CDs by a certain group of musical youngsters known as One Direction. She started listening to them this week until one night she IM'd me to say, "I know now what's at the bottom of the rabbit hole. One Direction is at the bottom of the rabbit hole."

"I know a bunch of people who are already down there," I told her the next day. "Would you like me to ask for fic recs?"

I expected her to pretend to demur at first and say that she'd let me know if it got to that point. Instead, she just said, "Yes, please."

We were on our way to Iron Man 3 at the time, so I was understandably distracted after that. But this afternoon, she was like, "So. I really need those fic recs."

So, if any of you happen to know of good fic, or rec lists, or pimping posts, or cute videos, or whatever else having to do with One Direction, please let me know. Any pairing is fine. Angst, injury, etc. is a bonus, but not required.

Help?

Title: The Long Way (the Little Lionheart Remix)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] corilannam
Rating: NC-17
Pairings: Merlin/Arthur, Merlin/Mordred
Word Count: 9,257
Warnings: None
Content: sex magic, bondage, tentacles (non-creature), time travel, reconciliation
Summary: Arthur and Merlin were on the verge of a magically kinky love affair--if only Merlin had known it. One misstep and Merlin must find a way back to what he should have had with Arthur.
Author Notes: This is a remix of [livejournal.com profile] marguerite_26's brilliant story I Would Find a Way, created for the 2013 [livejournal.com profile] camelotremix. It was an honor to have a chance to play with [livejournal.com profile] marguerite_26's fantastic work. These characters, in particular, stuck in my head and my heart. Thank you for the chance to spend some more time with them!

And a million thanks to [livejournal.com profile] venivincere and [livejournal.com profile] sapphirescribe for their flawless and patient mod work. Thanks for making this all possible!

I would love to hear what you liked (or didn't!). Comments welcome either here or on AO3.

The Long Way (the Little Lionheart Remix)

So here are a few shorter snippets:

* Spartacus! I mainlined the entire series of Spartacus in under two weeks, and fuck the gods, I am completely obsessed. Not just with Agron/Nasir (although, hello, awesome), but the entire show and everyone in it. It's always been on my to-watch list because I love anything set in the ancient world, but I also thought it was pretty much blood spatter and boobie porn. It is both of those things, but also much more. The historical accuracy is relatively impressive, the characters are complex and fascinating, and it raises a lot of fascinating questions about society, survival, and self-determination.

And peeking over the fourth wall, the cast and producers seem utterly delightful. Though I have to say, they all seem just a little too chipper on Twitter about the emotional devastation they're going to be wreaking upon their fans tonight with the finale.

The fandom seems very scattered, but I guess, what fandom isn't these days? I found a few good stories on AO3, but it seems depressingly sparse compared to the Merlin treasure trove I've been wallowing in for the last 5 years. Gratitude for recs you may have.

Also, it means I have to start actually paying attention to the flashback scenes on Arrow, since Manu Bennett is in them and I have developed quite a thing for him.

* Writing! My story for Paper Legends is plodding along very slowly. I have the plot all outlined, but I feel like the emotional storyline hasn't gelled yet. This has slowed me down to a crawl. On the brighter side, I just have to do some editing for Perverse Bang, and then my 20K gangbang will finally see the light of day, for better or worse.

* Torvill and Dean! Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, the legendary British ice dancers, were my fandom back when I was 17. Now they're on Twitter. Yes, they both use the same account. Yes, they tweet the most mundane things imaginable (the weather, workouts, pictures of lunch and coffee). Yes, Chris tweets much more than Jayne does. In short, they are exactly what you would expect them to be and I find it hilariously charming.

* Fake school! The last several months, I've started to pine to go back to school. I found a way to at least dip my toes back in with the recent rise of the MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) from coursera.org and edx.org. Fake courses from real universities! Or maybe real courses for fake students? I dunno, but it's fun. I'm taking a bunch of random stuff like calculus, statistics, computer programming, and Greek history. Definitely overextending myself, which is a good lesson to learn before I try it for real.

* And everything else I had thought about posting is now either out of date or too boring to even interest me. How are you all doing?

So apparently someone developed an iphone app and also has the good fortune to be really, really good buddies with Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay of White Collar.

You need to watch this. Even if you don't know who they are (hint: Matt Bomer = hottest guy in Magic Mike). After you watch it, you may have some questions, like, "WTF was that?" or "When did you slip the LSD into my coffee?" or "...?"

I have no answers. Just snuggles.

I need to close some browser tabs, so here are some fun links I've stumbled upon over the last few days. Some are quite appropriate for the date and others... well, it's all about sex in the end, anyway, I guess.


* The British Library publishes Leonardo daVinci's notebooks online

* WTF, Evolution?

* Vinegar Valentines (because the internet didn't invent the anon troll)

* The Namibian armored ground cricket (possibly the only article you'll see today with the phrase "orgiastic cannibalism")

* The World's Oldest Pornography

Long enough to shower

Our final Merlin big bang! That makes me both happy and sad. I really didn't think I would sign up again, unless I could pull together a sequel to last year's story. But after the finale, [livejournal.com profile] gilli_ann and [livejournal.com profile] gwylliondream gave me a huge post-5x13 idea that's been eating my brain ever since, so now I can't wait to sign up.


I've been doing almost no reading lately, despite my best efforts, but I have to rec two stories that were gifted to ME!

First, the marvelous modern royal AU (with magic!) written for me for [livejournal.com profile] merlin_holidays. Jerusalem is the intriguing and tender story of Arthur, the irresponsible playboy prince, who finds his ways being changed by his new minder, the powerful magic user with a mysterious past. If you love royal AUs as much as I do, you must read it!

The second story is Hawaii 5-0, and was perhaps less a gift than a reward for pestering [livejournal.com profile] stellarmeadow ever since our ill-fated trip to Atlantic City with [livejournal.com profile] chelseafrew and [livejournal.com profile] a_terri_beth. What Happens in Atlantic City... is an adorable and hilarious future fic where Steve and Danny are taking a teenage Grace to see her musical idol in concert--but of course, things never go smoothly for Steve and Danny, do they?
corilannam: (Merlin - stuck at work)
As long as I'm still crying over the end of Merlin the show anyway, I was doing some thinking about the future of Merlin the character.

spoilers for Merlin 5.13 )

So what are your thoughts on Merlin's future?
