uther

Interjections show excitement or emotion.

Big Bang:sahiya and I got together in real-world-space this weekend and watched a lot of Doctor Who. The First Doctor is a total jerk! I kinda like him. But in addition, we polished off the schedule for the Big Bang ficathon. katekat1010 has done lovely graphic design work for buffy_bigbang and now all the ficathon needs is for me to get over my nerves and fling the doors open. I'm afraid of making big obvious mistakes running it, because I still feel like a newbie at the business of fandom. I suppose the good will of all involved will get us over any of my pratfalls.

Merlin: If I weren't already shipping Uther/Morgana, the latest episode (#12) would move me to it. Holy swords as sexual subtext, Batman! Everyone already ships the boys, of course, from the dragon to Uther to the mainstream press. But this ship is truly hot and twisted and tense. ASH has chemistry with everyone he's ever been on-screen with, which strikes the first sparks. And then the relationship these two have, in plain right-out-there canon text, is so intense that the subtext can't help but be molten metal hot. Especially recommended for people who like enemies-as-lovers and hate!sex. Yet simple passion between them is also plausible.

I want to write fic where Uther gets Morgana pregnant in a night of drunken passion, decides to make her his queen, and then Arthur goes all angsty and worried about being replaced. (Merlin will of course comfort him.) Yeah. Total soap opera urge. Stop me.

Birthdays: Our parents must have been bored in February and March, is all I can say, because so many of us are celebrating now as the year wanes. Many happy returns to carlaland, liz_marcs, kenyacandoit, ljs, agilesreader (who maybe doesn't realize how responsible she is for the depth of my involvement in Giles fandom!), and Mr Pedia.

May the next year bring you all surprising pleasures and unexpected happiness!

Absurdity: There is now a die-cast model of a Lotus Elise on my desk, but alas it is 1:18 scale, so my 1:12 scale figures of Giles and Buffy cannot ride in it. If you laugh I will de-friend you. Bah.

Random: Daniel Hemmens on lessons learned from NaNoWriMo. You may remember him from such articles as "Harry Potter and the Doctrine of the Calvinists", about the moral horror at the center of the HP books. With which opinion I realize many of you will disagree, but about which Hemmens is vastly entertaining. Which, as he learns from NaNo, is a hard thing to be.

I'm fairly excited about the big bang!

And...I'm shipping Uther/Morgana and haven't even seen one episode yet. *LMAO* Apparently, they're going to start it over here in the new year.

As for the absurdity part of your post...

Um...I didn't laugh.. I swear, I didn't...

snorted, perhaps...but not laughing.

Yet. ;)
Re: Buffy Big Bang, just do it. Mistakes are certainly bound to happen, but that's understandable and I'm sure we'll all forgive you.

Also, re: your subject line, I want to quote Schoolhouse Rock now. Or at least find my DVDs and watch them.
They're generally set apart from a sentence by an exclamation point, or by a comma when the feeling's not as strong. So if you're happy, or glad, or excited, or sad, an interjection starts a sentence right!
Write the Merlin story. Write the Merlin story. Write the Merlin story. Write the Merlin story. Write the Merlin story. Write the Merlin story.
Please.
And so another fandom goes on my list and kingandward claims another victim. Is it serious enough for me to seek out an icon? Guess it is!

[Edit to prove the point.]

Write the Merlin fic, there isn't enough Uther love in the fandom yet. :)

Not laughing at the absurdity, honestly. I have a little die-cast model of Giles's Citroen on my desk.
Thank you, and a happy almost-Wednesday to you!
While there are things fandom gets insane about, with most fannish things fandom is pretty easy going and forgiving. I would imagine the latter would be the case with anything related to pulling off something as huge as Big Bang. Go for it, I say.
unless they're leaving comments behind my back (which, hey, entirely possible), doing the fannish stuff is really not so hard for those of us with project org skills. It's about that and smiling. you do plenty of that.
Heh heh heh...
Absolutely do not write about Morgana's chafed wrists and the fact that Uther had manacles in her size already! OMG teh sex!
The lovely twisted thing about Morgana is that I wouldn't put it past her to do some careful planned struggling while wearing the manacles, just so she can have the chafe marks to [spoilers omitted].
I still have your Dr Who DVD. *cringes* I am very very bad.

And hey, it's my birthday this month too!
