shamera: (pissy)
Haven't been writing when I really should have been. Maybe I'll try to do something 12 Days of Christmas or whatever. It's a testament to how well I know my way around typing that I can even do this post, haha~ the lights on my keyboard seem to have broken, which means my entire keyboard is... black. Yeap. I had a light up keyboard, and now there's no light so I can't see a single key. XD

Time for more fandom grouching, though!

The things you don't want to hear about, and I don't like to talk about because it's complaining but eff you, this is my own journal. )

So while I've made a post regarding how often the Merlin magic reveal fanfics tend to greatly irritate me due to Arthur's reactions (recap: him punishing Merlin for keeping secrets as if Arthur had a right to secrets that would have gotten Merlin killed, and Merlin just-- what? Taking it??? Like he's worth nothing without Arthur's goodwill???), the one good thing that comes out of every magic reveal story is thus:


While some people write Arthur reacting well or poorly, there seems to be a universal consensus with Gwaine because I have not seen one story (not one!) where Gwaine reacts badly to news of Merlin's magic. The most negative reaction I have ever seen in fanfics from Gwaine is him needing a few minutes to digest the information before he jumps to Merlin's defense. The reaction range for Gwaine seems to flow from him accepting it casually to excited wonder.

And after five canon seasons of Merlin constantly being told that magic is evil and awful and never going to be accepted... that is what I want to read in fanfics. Yes, yes, Arthur and Merlin are two sides of the same coin and Arthur's reactions are Very Important to Merlin, but.

I want more Gwaine, and Lancelot if anyone can work him in (he deserves so much more than 1-2 episodes after he got knighted before he got killed off), and I want them to be that sense of wonder because goodness knows everyone else's reactions tend to start with hate and lead to executions.

If she really had a choice, then she could walk away. )

So either Asian hair is extremely resilient to bleach, or it's just me-- because I've bleached my hair twice this week and I've got.... medium to light brown.


On the upside, my hair doesn't feel like straw. Definitely a lot drier, but it's still doing well. On the downside, I'll probably have two more bleaching sessions to go before I can get it light enough to accept the light blue dye I've already gotten stashed away. My end-goal is light blue / silvery hair! *crosses fingers*

Also I'm ridic salty about having missed the Spring Virtual Run sign-ups for Zombies, Run. I am absolutely in love with the shirt that came with, and the run is currently happening now, too! Of course, my run times are crap (today = 5k in 43min, since I'm still more walking than jogging), but I aim to improve~ better than my couch potato ways of last year, anyway. I'm still pretty proud of shaving off ten minutes in the past month, since I felt nauseous and my legs hurt pretty bad when I first started and now all I need to do is catch my breath between jogs.

Is it too high a goal to aim for 30mins by summer?

So a month ago I got a response to a comment I posted maybe three years ago gushing my love for a certain Merlin fanfic, and was told that if I was still interested, there were three complete multi-chaptered sequels to that story.

Naturally, I went to read those sequels and fell arse-first right back into the Merlin fandom this past month. Whole month! I never ran out of stories to read, and I forgot just how crazy awesome that is. I spent all of today reading a series of reveal!fics, and I don't even really like the usual reveal!fic tropes because something about Arthur's reactions irritate me.

On the other hand, the best thing about reveal!fic is always Gwaine. Gwaine is awesome. Actually, the best thing about any Merlin fanfics is Gwaine.

Or Aithusa. I need more stories that have Aithusa with Merlin because it's adorable and I still feel cheated that Aithusa ended up with Morgana.

(Also, more Merlin and Gwen. Because why don't we have more scenes between the two cutie-pies of the show?)

Everything I say might just be hocus pocus, though. Don’t worry too much about it. Just an old lady’s folk tales and local ghost stories. You’ll forget it all once you get home safe and sound. )
