Podfic for halfamoon

I took part in the Awesome Ladies Podfic Anthology II over at [livejournal.com profile] halfamoon, where there are loads of short podfics I can't wait to check out.

These are the two I recorded, both PG-rated and around the 5 minute mark:

tick, tock, goes the clock

I still can't get over that the Doctor Who finale and Merlin premiere are airing back to back tomorrow. I can't handle that level of cognitive dissonance! So I'll be watching Merlin when I get back from Collectormania on Sunday evening, probably. I am tentatively optimistic about this season? I'm not expecting it to suddenly get better at the things it sucks at, but I am looking forward to knights and my girl Gwen, and crossing my fingers that Morgana's arc won't be awful.

So yes, Collectormania! See some of you there! Email me if you want to swap contact details etc. Resolution of the weekend: do not say anything completely ridiculous to Arthur Darvill. This may be a challenge. :D

I'll probably post from my phone after the finale tomorrow but may not be online much otherwise.

Month of Awesome Women: Guinevere (Merlin)

"This is my home and you are a guest in it! I know you are used to more luxurious quarters but that is not an excuse to be so rude! You claim titles don't matter to you but you behave like a prince and expect me to wait on you like a servant! Saying it means nothing if your actions betray you! Would it kill you to say 'Please' and 'Thank you' once in a while? ... My Lord."

'Is there anything else you'd like to add?' 'No, I think that's it.' )

so now that Merlin is over

It is time for fic! I mean, don't get me wrong, I will totally be thrilled with plotty gen season codas and introspective character and relationship pieces and all the other things fandom does that make the show sound much smarter than it is! But let's be honest, here's a list of the things I really want:

some finale spoilers )

Also all the awesome things people brainstormed for this month's [livejournal.com profile] kinkelot. (Penetration kink: object penetration, fisting, double penetration, etc.)

Speaking of, did you all see [personal profile] zephre's awesome art, Courage, Strength and Magic? (Arthur/Merlin/Gwaine, explicit) So gorgeous!

This interview with Julian Murphy is so aggravating.

portion that made me especially angry )

Eesh, I cannot wait for this season to be over so I can get on with my life. And not even touching all the 'ew, fans' stuff because WHATEVER.

Stupid show with its stupid yet adorable characters who I am still invested in and thus cannot let go! OPEN CANON FANDOMS ARE STRESSFUL, ACK. But tomorrow is the finale and then, sweet sweet hiatus.

tentacles!

+ So [personal profile] frigg wrote a fabulous tentacle porn manifesto.

I've heard a few people say they never understood the attraction of tentacles. Personally, what I like about them is their versatility and possible range of kinks, along with inherent and/or common tropes and kinks with them. They basically plays on a lot of kinks at once, and can enhance and go well with any other kinks!


+ Then [personal profile] xenakis made this gorgeous piece of tentacle!Arthur not!porn, which is really great.

+ And thus, I feel it is appropriate to issue a reminder at this time that [livejournal.com profile] kinkelot's tentacles challenge is running until the end of the month. Possibly that will give me enough time to finish up this story so I can submit something to my own comm for once!

fuck yeah she's awesome: guinevere!

Gwen is amazing. She is made of flowers and sunshine and happiness, and Angel Coulby's performance lights up the screen. Unlike all the other major characters in Merlin, she has no powers or status to bend things her way - instead, her superpowers are reason, compassion, and a level-headedness frequently missing in the antics of her friends. She delights in the happiness of others, has a fierce sense of justice, and she's going to be a fucking awesome queen of Camelot.
