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?

I'm excited that you're signing up for PL, and even more excited that your story is going to be a post-finale story!!! :D

I'm pretty excited, too! I've already got quite a bit of it outlined. I need to start writing ASAP to make sure I stay on the ball.

So how about you? Signing up? *hopeful face*

*rubs hands together with glee for your story!!!*

The only story I think would be long enough (of what I have in my to write file) is a post 5x13 reincarnation story, but I'm not sure I want to wait that long to post it. So...I'm not sure about PL yet. Otherwise, I'm mostly planning on continuing my cheerful romp through all the tropes in 2013. It's what I do. *g*

Well, I'm not sure I want you to wait that long to post it, either, if you're going to finish it faster. *g* See, I know it'll take me the whole time to finish mine, so no problem!

I think trope romping is an awesome idea. I want to do a lot of that, too. I was looking at some of the trope bingo cards yesterday with sparkly eyes. We don't have nearly enough trope fic in this fandom, frankly!

I'm kind of scared to tell you this since you've written two of my favorite modern royal aus in this fandom, but I'm seriously thinking about going in that direction for PL.

*sticks head in the sand*

You're going to write a modern royal AU?? WOO HOO!!! I can't wait!

I think so. I brainstormed some of it last night with my bestie. They're my favorite type of stories in this fandom, ngl, so I'm a little intimidated to do it, but I think I have an idea!

I always love paperlegends!

Fantastic! They're obviously my favorite type of stories, too, so I'm thrilled that I'll get another big bang-length one to read this year.
