It's a remix of The Ink Still Drying, but it also samples ummmm TWELVE OTHER OF MY MERLIN FICS?? OMGGGGGGG i am not worthyyyyy ANON, YOU ARE THE MOST EXCELLENT. I wish to sprinkle your path with rose petals and sing you the ballad of your choice. <333

This one goes out to my Narnia girls who are also Supernatural girls. There are more of us than I thought! Chuck and Aslan need to Have Words, and maybe Castiel once looked for God in Archenland.

Above Us Only Sky (The Golden Age Remix)
Supernatural. Anna. PG. 2005 words. A remix of Anna by [livejournal.com profile] soundingsea. Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] zempasuchil for betareading.
Set between 4.10 and 4.16. Anna falls back out of the wardrobe.

To be part of more than one world can't possibly be a sin. At the very least, it's an act of love.


SPEAKING OF NARNIA, The Wardrobe Door has been doing a good job posting photos from Dawn Treader filming. Georgie, grown so much! Just like Ben Barnes's facial hair. Remember when we were all D: when Dawn Treader got dropped?! Man. And now I guess Susan is in a scene!!

In other Narnia news, [livejournal.com profile] narniaexchange sign-ups start in a week. SPEAKING of fanwork exchanges, [livejournal.com profile] castielfest has 85 (EEEEIIIIIGHHHTYYYY FIIIiiIIiIiive) participants! omg joy and happiness. Thank you everyone who boosted the signal and signed up! Castravaganzaaaaaaaaa \o/

Did you hear about that S3 Merlin spoiler? )

Voici my 500th post! How better to celebrate than by posting Narnia/Mary Poppins crossover fic about Susan becoming Mary Poppins's assistant, co-written with awesomefaces Betsy and Wyrm? In many ways, it is kind of a perfect summation of my fannish experience. This started as commentfic in separate posts, then we consolidated it in a whirlwind of excitement, and left it to languish for like a year.

Title: Winds To Catch
Authors: [livejournal.com profile] animus_wyrmis, [livejournal.com profile] be_themoon, & [livejournal.com profile] lassiterfics. Because sometimes it takes three people to churn out 1300 words.
Fandoms: Chronicles of Narnia/Mary Poppins
Characters: Susan Pevensie, Mary Poppins
Rating: PG
Summary: "Come with me," Mary says, and Susan doesn't hesitate because this is the second chance she thought she'd already lost alongside everyone who could give it to her.

She has her umbrella, and they both have the winds.

SPN crossovers I wanna read/write: Narnia, Fight Club, Lucifer, X-Files )

Some little bird told me it's fandom appreciation week. I can get behind those sentiments. Hey, fandom! I like you. I would even go so far as to say I like you a lot. Let's go for a malt sometime and write epic commentfic (LIKE A BOSS), OTP crossover ships (LIKE A BOSS), and swear that this fic is gen (oh fuck me I can't fuckin do it shiiiit). Seriously, guys, with your Giant Squid fics, and your sympathy for the 'villain', and your thoughtful worldbuilding, and your willingness to let joy get out of hand, and your furious shaking of shoddy canon until plausibility and/or glee falls out,

In conclusion, Hipster Puppies and Cute Boys With Cats.

The Mean Girls trailer using Disney princess movies? Awesome. Merlin Artword?! JOIN THE SHITTING MOTHERCOCK UP.

Now Showing on my Dreamwidth

Christmas Past | Narnia. Susan, Edmund (Jadis). G. 323 words. Golden Age fic written for [livejournal.com profile] marycontraire's [livejournal.com profile] fandom_stocking.

Transfiguration | Supernatural. Sam, Lucifer, Dean. PG13. Spoilers for S5. 289 words. Written for [livejournal.com profile] sharp_teeth for the following prompt: "He has the Devil under his skin. He didn't know it would be like this. The Devil doesn't let him rest, doesn't let him sleep, doesn't let him close his eyes. And he can feel his body rotting."

double the speed limit | Supernatural. Sam/Dean. PG13. 447 words. Written for the [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic prompt "Sam&/Dean, give me the keys." This is less a ficlet more like a condensed summary of the Wincest I've been reading.


Commentfic will especially be the death of me because apparently I NEVER LEARN. But it's gonna be a pretty fun death! Maybe there can be a round-robin crackfic-athon at the wake. The thing below was written for this sharp_teeth prompt. ) And suddenly I have 2100 words of AU (of a canon AU) futurefic and vague ideas for a sequel. Ours is not to question why. But partly it's because oh man, I can write in croatverse foreverrrrr or at least until my heart breaks into a billion little pieces.


The Future As B-Movie
Supernatural. Dean, Sam, Cas. PG13. Spoilers for 5x04, sort of...
In the middle of the zombie apocalypse, the vampires multiply and zero in on Cas. \o/

'You know what, fuck you. And fuck Jesus Christ Superstar.' )
whynot: SPN: all hail (another country)
SPN: After School Special, Sex & Violence, Sympathy for the Devil, fic recs )

I was listening to 'Running Up That Hill' and thought hey, this would be a good song for a Winchester mix, then I noticed something I hadn't cared to before: the cover art attached to this song is not, in fact, Placebo's "Sleeping With Ghosts", but "A Love True and Unchaste: A Wincest Mix". Ahaha, oh SPN, all up in my grill before I even knew. Relatedly, how is there not a million Dean/Castiel vids set to Jose Gonzalez's 'Crosses'? Or Better Than Ezra's 'Particle'? A Winchesters vid set to Trail of Dead's 'Will You Smile Again' or Coldplay's 'Square One'?

And now, a meme wherein [livejournal.com profile] katakokk picks 7 of my interests and I talk about them. anthropomorphization, awooga, metafiction, sociolology, harry potter, uncle johnny keynes, hetalia ) If you want me to pick 7 of your interests to talk about, comment with a vid rec or a GIF.


NOW SHOWING on my Dreamwidth

The First Rule of Hunting | Fight Club/Supernatural a.k.a. BEST PROMPT EVER. The narrator, Marla Singer. PG13. 183 words. "I'm as sane as any of the other hunters out there." (omg you guys, do you think Bobby and Marla could be related?!)

Tricks of the Light | Supernatural. Dean/Castiel. PG13. 132 words. "It's the little things that stick out."

Holiday | Sherlock Holmes (reboot). Holmes, Irene, and Watson. PG. 128 words. "I know my way around New York better than you do."

How He Did | Merlin/Sherlock Holmes. Holmes, Watson, Uther, Gaius. G. 142 words. "The question is not whether Tristan du Bois has risen from the dead."

Negotiable Things | Merlin/Narnia. Susan Pevensie, Morgana. G. 73 words. "In a London pub, two women."

A Moment Alone | Merlin/Narnia. Edmund/Gwen. G. 267 words. Pesky inlaws-to-be.


...Two memes in one post? Why not. Yoinked from [livejournal.com profile] fahye: Who on LJ do you ship me with? Bonus points for outlining the ridiculous AU fic that you would write about us.
whynot: SPN: all hail (Default)
Dreamwidth snippet time. Some of these, you might have seen before. I'm transferring a lot of old snippets to the DW for easier linking. The following are all rated PG13 or lower.

19th century RPF
with friends like these | Karl Marx & Friedrich Engels, after Marx fired Ruge from the cool kids' table. 118 words.

Hetalia
life is like a japanese vending machine | Germany and Japan take a walk around Tokyo in the winter. WARNING: fluff. 285 words.

Sherlock Holmes (2009)
Metamorphosis | So the first thing I did after I watched the movie was go on [livejournal.com profile] sherlockkink, where someone was like, "Write the one where Watson is turning into a snakeman." Perhaps someday I'll extend this into something full-length. 174 words.

Merlin
missing scene #4 | From Just Lie Back and Think of Camelot (Arthur/Merlin, R). 223 words.
It's Pronounced Woostah | Road trip! Merlin, Will, Morgana, and Gwen make a stop in Worcester, Massachusetts. I'm not sure if this is AU or crack. 485 words.
Once, in Manila | Arthur, Uther, Lancelot, and Gaius go on a family vacation of sorts in Manila, Philippines. Again, I'm not sure if this is AU or crack. Now with the commentfic addition I wrote for Nix! 1650 words.

Narnia
between here and there | Post-TLB. Susan traveling the world. 156 words.
no matter of yours | Golden Age. In which Tumnus is smarmy and Edmund doesn't want to know. 114 words.
missing scene #1 | From this room has many windows (Edmund/Peter/Susan, PG13). 149 words.
more missing scenes | From and sometimes you hear the silence speak (Edmund, Susan, Jadis, magic; PG13).

multifandom
missing scene #2 | From A Guide to Modern Living (Gossip/Boondock Saints, Travis/Connor, R). 221 words.


I've been leaving sekrit one-sentence fic in my boyfriend's phone iTouch. (I keep forgetting it's not a phone! After all it has all the basic phone tools, like chess and instant stock market updates.) They are in the key of:
19th-century RPF: Karl looks at the box suspiciously and says that he hopes Friedrich knows this doesn't mean he'll be getting a gift in return.
Baseball RPF (Red Sox): "Well," Pedroia says with a knowing smile, "in America, Daisuke, a home run can mean many things."

As my icon might suggest, I watched Where the Wild Things Are and I LOVED IT omg. )

I haven't been having particularly strong feelings about SPN as I watch it, possibly because usually when I watch it I'm distracted doing something else. I don't really ship Sam/Dean, and I have a feeling I'm just waiting for this Castiel person to show up so I can ship him/Dean. I already ship Winchesters/Pevensies in any and all combinations. Prompt me some Pevenchester in comments and I'll write you 5-sentence fic (um, set during S1 I guess).

I have a bunch of unusable screencaps from when I was making my LWW icons. I still have them 'cos I'm a pack-rat, so here is me getting some use out of them:

So my anthropology final is going to be about fanfiction as a platform for the expression of subaltern rhetoric (specifically, pro-LGBT and pro-women rhetoric), and I'll be using Merlin and Narnia fandoms as case studies. Basically, my essay is about: YOU GUYS. I have a 4-page outline for 20-ish (15-ish?) pages and it's due on Tuesday omg.

It was such a trip making this outline. I was writing about The Last Battle, and my gut instinct was to warn for spoilers. Spoilers! Warning for spoilers in an academic essay: I WON'T DO IT, but it feels wrong not to anyway! I'm probably going to compile stats & figures from LJ comms, fic archives, and [livejournal.com profile] kinkme_merlin (OMG I'M GONNA TALK ABOUT KINKME_MERLIN IN AN ACADEMIC PAPER) to support my claim that, what, people are into slash. Maybe I'll even make a table of it and put it in the appendix?!? MAYBE I'LL MAKE PIE CHARTS D: D: (XD)

There are peer-reviewed journals and published books about this stuff, but this paper doesn't feel like a grad-level anthro final. It feels like a "what I did over my summer vacation" essay, or an especially self-indulgent LJ post.

I've some interview questions for you guys, 'cos it's not everyday that the subject of my paper topic is but a flist away! Answer one, some, or all; I'd be happy with whatever.

OUR FANDOMS, OURSELVES: 5 questions about your fannish experience )

Non-interviewy questions--

a) What is that article about Merlin when it was new, in which Colin and Bradley were surprised/chuffed that the show was so embraced by the gay community?
b) Do you guys have links to the Merlin producers/publicists blatantly shipping Bradley/Colin, even if just for the slash fans' benefit? Like, that time when Bradley was playing charity soccer and Julian Jones or wtfe was like yeah, Colin's gonna be there with a sponge and bucket to wipe him down.
c) Not for my essay, but: are Katie McGrath's eyes green or blue? THEY'RE GREEN DAMMIT, but I've seen a lot of blue in fics. (GREEN.)

SNOWFLAKES: I can haz! Thank you [livejournal.com profile] allothi, [livejournal.com profile] almostinstinct, [livejournal.com profile] briar_pipe, [livejournal.com profile] not_sally, and [livejournal.com profile] stealingpennies! <333 \o/

You know how [livejournal.com profile] penknife made an SGA starter kit for people who want to get into the show but maybe don’t want to watch the zillion episodes already out? Is there something like this for Supernatural?

Speaking of TV, how about The Office and how I couldn’t finish watching the “Scott’s Tots” episode, argh. I love The Office to bits but this episode was so painful and terrible D-:

To help me think my anthropology final through, under this cut is a discussion of how I might make Narnia the topic of my Ideologies/Mythologies final paper. )

Or, I can just write my final paper about fandom in general, or maybe ‘Merlin’ fandom specifically! Hoo man, ideology and mythology in ‘Merlin’ fandom, that is a completely different post.

Randomly, I miss watching Ocean Girl :(. WHERE ARE YOU, OCEAN GIRL SEASON 4.

ETA: Hilarious vid rec of the whenever!: Arthur in the Afternoon. "A dazzling tribute to Arthur Pendragon and his amazing wooing skills. Or, an incisive exploration of the increasingly shameless objectification of Bradley James by the British Broadcasting Corporation."

Some great photos of child labor in America circa 1908-1912. Well, not great per se. Uh, you know. They're compelling.

Merlin 2x11. At this point last season, we had unicorns. )

In other news, here's what I wrote for homework this week: identity and destiny in Narnia )

Unrelatedly, I don't ship Draco/Hermione, I really don't, but apparently I ship EmmaWatson!Hermione and TomFelton!Draco b-because they're hot. Okay.

ETA: OMG [livejournal.com profile] mordred_morgana!! YES. YESSSSS. And... [livejournal.com profile] leonandmorgana?? SURE WHY NOT.
