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, [ profile] gilli_ann and [ 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 [ 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 [ profile] stellarmeadow ever since our ill-fated trip to Atlantic City with [ profile] chelseafrew and [ 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?

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?

The long trailer for the Hunger Games movie debuted on Good Morning America this morning, and OMG, I still have chills all over my body.

Still bummed it's not eligible for [ profile] yuletide this year, but it looks like the movie is going to give me the story I was going to ask for anyway.

Off topic: If someone (me, for instance) tells you their grand plan for skipping over the sex scene in their story and going back to fill it in later because that's going to be so much more efficient, feel free to mock.
