Settle in with a cuppa, 'cause I may have a lot of feelings about this episode.

Spoilers for Merlin 5.03 )

And that seems a good note to end on and remind you to go write a little something for [ profile] magnolia822's MERLIN SEASON 5 COMMENT FEST

It was late when I got home last night, and then I had to watch the episode twice, so I ended up too tired to write up my thoughts before I passed out. Sorry, [ profile] destina!

So, I requested a really kick-ass episode for my birthday. Let's see if the Beeb delivered with Arthur's Bone Bane Part 2 (because a bad joke never gets old....)

Merlin 5.02 )

Enormous thanks go to [ profile] anna_zee, who has been helping me figure out this story from the moment I started it almost two years ago all the way until the final edit at 1 o'clock this morning. This would be a giant mess without her, no lie. Huge thanks as well to [ profile] chelseafrew for betaing and also putting up with my constant need to be scribbling at all times this summer. And a grateful shout out to [ profile] stellarmeadow, [ profile] lawgoddess, [ profile] gwylliondream, and [ profile] gilli_ann for the support and camaraderie.

Notes: This is the longer version of my entry for [ profile] merlin_games (GO TEAM CANON!) I cut it down to fit in the short fic category for reasons that turned out to be irrelevant. Contains dub-con elements played for comedic effect. Thanks to [ profile] chelseafrew for the proofreading (and sorry about the giant cock thing).

Merlin staggered and shook his head to clear the blurriness from his eyes in the aftermath of the spell )

Happy Day!

Some stuff:

* Happy Hunger Games! I'm going to the midnight show tonight, even though I am much too old for that nonsense and will undoubtedly pay for it tomorrow. I'm wearing my District 11 China Glaze tie-in nail polish as my secret fannish costume.

* Happy Vernal Equinox! Er, a couple days late. Although I really can't complain about how the winter has treated us here in the Mid-Atlantic, I never fail to be thrilled to get officially past it. Being a born-and-raised desert girl, I always feel like the mere existence of winter is holding me hostage somehow. On one particularly mild and pleasant February day, I was trying to explain to the BFF that this was how winter was all the time back home. I did have to go out and buy a new fan, though, since my apartment complex won't turn the a/c on until sometime in May and my place is already getting a bit stuffy.

* Happy Big Bang Check-in! Er, a day early. I was going to be able (with some difficulty) to meet the 10K suggested minimum, until last night when I had a MAJOR BREAKTHROUGH on the plot while chatting with [ profile] flammablehat. Well, not the plot so much as the structure. So I had to delete all but 2,000 words, but on the bright side, I can now actually see the beginning, middle, and end as opposed to just a random sequence of scenes I wanted to write.

* Happy Start of Merlin S5 Shooting! Ah, the anticipation. The occasional tidbit of information that we snap up like a school of starving piranhas. The glimpses of our lovely cast. The utter terror of what the Js are going to spout off about next. I'm neither actively seeking out spoilers nor actively avoiding them, so don't worry about mentioning them to me (but don't assume that I know about them, either). Before too many leak out, I think I'm going to work on my S5 wishlist.

Hey, you know what's a really underrated 'ship?

corilannam: (Default)
Happy New Year, everyone! I had an awesome New Year's Eve that lasted well into New Year's Day, which is a great way to start the year.

Clearing out some fannish loose ends from the old year:

For Yuletide I wrote Sports Night (shocker!) --

The Team Player
In which Kim saves Sports Night, because somebody has to.
3,568 words

And this is mostly for my own reference so I can find them again --

A couple weeks ago, I did that meme with snippets from fics I never wrote, and here are the not!fics requested (all Merlin -- shocker!)

[ profile] lolafeist asked for The Modern AU where Arthur has no memory of his past and Merlin is the psychiatrist trying to help him remember who he was

[ profile] incapricious asked for The one where Merlin introduces Arthur to Aithusa

[ profile] reni_m asked for That one where Arthur gets a new crown

[ profile] rotrude asked for The one where Merlin and Arthur are archaeologists à la Indy Jones

[ profile] rufflefeather asked for The one time Merlin actual is in the tavern

[ profile] nympha_alba asked for The one where Arthur happens to be outside Gaius' door and finds out about Merlin's magic

[ profile] tracy7307 asked for The one where alien!Merlin gives human!Arthur another anal probe (sequel to my alien!Merlin pthon entry)

Okay, I finally got to watch the two-part season finale of Merlin. Anyone still interested in talking about it?

Spoilers for Merlin 4.12 and 4.13 )

Okay, bring on the hiatus fic, bitches. What's the speculation for S5?

Title: All He Wants Is
Author: Cori Lannam ([ profile] corilannam)
Rating: G
Pairing: Merlin/Arthur
Wordcount: 800

Summary: Modern AU. Getting his assistant a Christmas present should have been a lot easier than this, Arthur thought.

Notes: I wrote this tiny bit of holiday fluff for the [ profile] summerpornathon Christmas in July bonus challenge. Now seemed like a good time to finally repost it. Dedicated to anyone who, like me, is still struggling to find a few last-minute gifts (good luck!)

Merlin was sulking. Again. )

If you've seen the movie Parked (of interest to Colin Morgan and Colm Meaney fans) and would like to discuss it with other fans, [ profile] rufflefeather is hosting a great discussion here.

Needless to say, incredibly spoilery.
corilannam: (Merlin - pendragon)
Spoilers for Merlin 4.11 )
So, next week looks exciting, yes? I can't believe there are only two episodes left. And I kind of want to go look for spoilers for the finale, but I just can't face it yet!
corilannam: (Merlin - Bradley's fantasy)
Wow, this week has been the biggest emotional rollercoaster ever (fannishly speaking -- real life is quite nice for the most part). I have never had so many huge fandom ups and downs in such a short space of time.

Let's focus on the ups:

-- I got to go see Parked at the DC Irish film festival screening with [ profile] chelseafrew and [ profile] stellarmeadow. A very good movie hitting surprisingly close to home for me on a few levels. Colin Morgan remains a relentlessly impressive actor and also just exquisite to look at. I got to meet and chat with [ profile] stagarden and wave briefly to [ profile] incapricious (okay, we really just have to meet properly already!)

-- People actually read and liked my unicorn porn! I love you guys so much for actually giving it a chance.

-- I got the best story ever for [ profile] merlin_holidays! If you like modern royal AUs, you are going to love this. If you like teenage boys kissing, pining, jealousy, or second chances at love, you will love this. Disregard the rating and the unnecessarily self-deprecating author's note -- you are going to love this fic.

Here, go read it: Same River Twice.

I can't wait to find out who wrote it and HOW THEY CLIMBED INTO MY BRAIN.

So what were your fannish ups and downs this week?
