Even with his "proviso" at the top, it's so so so so hard not to judge Eoin after his latest short story.

I'm not sure if he's trying to be edgy (at your age, Eoin? really?) or what, but this?

This face belongs to that social anomaly, the gay air hostess. The gay air hostess is another beast entirely separate from real life, it's emasculated, yet bizarrely has a position of power in that this creature, clearly wishing it was a female getting a good ride from behind, can tell bigger more ostensibly male types what to do. And they do it.

And the fact that he continually refers to this one particular male flight attendant as "It (and always capitalized, oh god)?" I can't. I will also say that I haven't made ti all the way through, so maybe I'm judging too harshly and the "character" whose POV we see this from actually gets bashed with a unicorn tiara to death, but...yeah.


ETA: Eoin "explains:"
Em, 'theharshknight', it is a story, a tongue in cheek satire, you should read David Sedaris..... There is an eminent problem is writing sometimes because people take things as literal. I have many gay oriented friends, and it is not even about that, it is a small commentary on a certain aspect of life and the character of 'I' is a creation, not a reality.

So...he's just a shit writer (like [livejournal.com profile] wldcatsprstr_14 said) who has no foresight into audience reception?

ETA2: He deleted. I don't want to repost it here, but an anon on mm copy-pasted the whole thing here. I do warn for homophobia, if you choose to read.

What did I do on the evening of Jan 3, you ask? Argued with Eoin Macken online. SMH
The Basics
TITLE: Haven by Chance
AUTHOR: Eurydice
RATING: NC17
WORD COUNT: 88k (complete)
CHARACTERS/PAIRINGS: Arthur/Percival, Gwaine/Merlin
SPOILERS/WARNINGS: None, modern AU
DISCLAIMER: Oh, how I wish they were, but no, they are not mine.
NOTES: Written for the KMM prompt, Arthur/Percival and/or Gwaine/Merlin, modern day AU, Sweaty, dirty dancing at a club. Paired off or all together, all I know is I want it.
SUMMARY: Percival Chance looks like he might have it all, but his shyness and insecurity cripple him from any kind of real relationship. Until he meets a gorgeous blond at a club one night and decides to take a chance. When he finds out his hook-up is none other than Arthur Pendragon, one of the most powerful businessmen in London, he's convinced he's made a terrible mistake. It's up to Arthur to convince him otherwise...

Why I love it.
Okay so. This fic, you guys. This fic. I know it's been finished for a few days over on KMM, but I've been holding back and waiting until Eurydice de-anoned to make my official rec post.

Those of you following me on Twitter and who've had the "pleasure" of speaking to me on the phone or skype know that whenever updates of this fic came in I'd squeal, squee, shriek and keysmash to no end. This fic kept me going through the week, pushing me from Monday to Wednesday to Friday, giving me something to look forward to for so many weeks. It had me laughing and crying and raging and sitting on the edge of my seat wishing for the next update. I've reread it a stupid amount of times, usually at least once a week before a new update, just to get caught up and back into it. Obviously as it began getting longer that wasn't possible, but I reread the whole thing last night (thanks to the lovey Eurydice who linked me to the full thing ahead of time ♥) and my heart. It sang.

So. Beyond the obvious that is it my OTP, Arthur/Percival (with the lovely addition of Merlin/Gwaine) this fic felt like it was written specifically for me so many times, I felt like a crazy person and held back all my comments about that (TIL NOW! oops?). So, let me just list the things that I loved more than anything and basically felt were taken straight out of my brain and headcanon for this flawless ship: top!Arthur who only bottoms for Percival (HOMG YES), Percival with a big cock, shy Percival who isn't stupid, the boys bringing out the best in each other in a slow push-pull kind of way, angst, Elena being BAMF and silly and adorable and friends with both Percival and Arthur, the D/s dynamics between Arthur and Percival (omfg every time he called Arthur a cockslut. I died).

Beyond those silly little things that made me want to smish the author forever, I thought the relationship between the boys was written brilliantly, in a very grown-up way. I loved that they were both autonomous and strong and able and successful in their own ways. I loved the mutual respect and the building of trust and the realism of so many of their issues. I loved how Eurydice developed Percival, how we could see his past (which I won't spoil) being part of all his choices and why it took so much for him to trust Arthur.

As far as stylistic choices go, I loved the prose, and just everything about it. I love how it flowed, how descriptive it was without being overly flowery, how well the male voice came through. I also couldn't get enough of her scene setting, the way she wrote actions around the dialogue like in the scene where Gwaine goes to Percival's flat, and he paces, I just love little things like that, the extra descriptions, being so well placed in the characters' POVs, even with the switching ones. I especially appreciated that toward the end, when we just absolutely needed to know exactly what they were all thinking, to be there with them in that hard situation, to understand their actions, reactions. Everything.

This fic is everything.

Now, okay, before you all think I'm nuts (lol you already should), obviously this fic isn't perfect and there were times when I doubted Eurydice (then anon) and her choices, when I wanted a bit more or something, but you know what? I have never ever before been so emotionally involved in a fanfiction and so wholly taken with the characters, so any little imperfections don't matter, really, not when the sum of all parts is 88k of the most amazing story A/P could've ever asked for. ♥
I blame [livejournal.com profile] prplhez8 for this entirely and completely. but omg look at how effing adorable this pairing can be when well-edited with cute music!

Aka a shameless excuse to post some more Soccer Six pics. :D


this time with more Eoin and his haaaair! )

Hope those were at least a bit inspiring for you all to go to the Football Fest and WRITE STUFF <3

How are you guys getting through this week? Is it dragging? Breezing through? Hope it's good regardless ♥

Okay so this is a ~300 word Elyan/Gwen commentfic that falls pre-S1, but it is so gorgeous and packs so much into it that I dare you not to make this your new headcanon. Dare you!

ETA: iPhone posting fail! Edited to link to actual fic not the whole thread *hides in fail*
sometimes. today's okay tho. THERE ARE THINGS.

1. I really like this picture of Colz:


2. Kittens and Merlin are doing well, they're meowy, and she keeps leaving them and being all "ugh not this again" but then she cuddles them and cleans them and just genuinely loves them so much. AND I GET TO SEE IT ALL! :')

3. This is my current desktop and it makes me happy beyond happiness. Just in case anyone needs a warning (which, if you're on my flist you shouldn't probably): It's a photo of THop from Facebook. Don't click if that's not your thing.

OH THOP Y U MAKE ME LOVE U SO MUCH?! )

4. Based on the success of the Paperlegends chats on weekends, there is also a Mon-Thurs general Merlin Fandom Write-Chat happening from ~5pm EDT - whenever us North Americans call it quits! This info is stolen from [livejournal.com profile] cruentum's post, because he hosts these things:

Merlin fandom write chat/word war.
http://chat.mibbit.com
Room: #merlinwritechat

Join for 30 minute writing sprints, everyone welcome

http://www.twitter.com/merlinwritechat
.

5. I already have a couple people being epic and helping me out with my reem, but I've recently realized I'm a special snowflake who needs handholding so if anyone else has seen Adrien Lyne's Lolita (the one with sexy Jeremy Irons) and read the book and wants to talk about it~, lemme know!

6. Yesterday [livejournal.com profile] rebeccaann08 basically made my life and sent me this as a birthday present!


In case you can't see, it says ArthurxPercival FTW!!! :') BEST MUG OF LIFE.


Hope you're all continuing to have a fantastic week. ♥

we get around by [livejournal.com profile] novemberlite

This is a lovely, hot Merlin/Arthur and Merlin/Knights (Lance, Gwaine, Percival) with serious sprinkling of Arthur/Percival hints that works the characterizations of all these knights into this fucking hot sex. I love the way Merlin's all take-charge-cock-whore and loves every minute of being with the knights; and how Arthur just randomly fantasizes about Percival in the middle of all of it but then just takes Merlin. Unf. Fucking sexy.

OMG YOU GUYS. SO. [livejournal.com profile] kinkme_camelot has been open for a couple days now and the FIRST FILL just got posted. AND IT WAS TO MY PROMPT Leontes/Merlin, when you're losing the one you love most, the only one you can turn to is one who knows exactly what you're going through.

OMG. IT'S SHORT, BUT SO SWEET AND PERFECT OMG <3

GO READ IT.


Oh. Also. I've signed up for [livejournal.com profile] reel_merlin to do a M/U version of Lolita.

And erm, have been signed up to rpf_bb for a Bradley/Tom thing. HM.

I'll complete at least one of those. I have to.

Merlin's still pregnant. Ugh.
So, I'm writing my essay but I just have to pause and be all: THIS IS EPIC.

First, GMK tweeted about needing good vibes for Friday, and I tweeted her what may have been a bit of a sleep-deprived and snarky reply BUT THE SHE REPLIED BACK. OMG. YAY!

AND THEN OF COURSE THERE WERE TWO PHOTOS THAT FEATURES TOM HOPPER:

AND THEN I WAS EVEN MORE SLEEP DEPRIVED SO I THOUGHT ASKING DALE ABOUT PERCIVAL'S ARMOUR WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA. BUT IT WAS:

AHAHAHHAHAHHAH IT IS CANON AND OFFICIAL XD OMG I LOVE THIS FANDOM.

You guys have no idea how excited I am! SRSLY! That's just the official sign-ups, and isn't counting all the other perfect amazing flisties who've also asked me to cheerlead. So, I know I haven't been around at paperpushers (I'll change, I swear!) So, this is my cheerleader offering #1 (which also explains why I'd never sign up to be an artist at pl :P)
