uther

In which there is geeky television, some writing progress, and some unrelated squee.

Today was all about the Star Trek indulgence with sahiya, who wanted an introduction to the original series canon. We watched "The Naked Time" and "The Corbomite Maneuver", two first season classics. Now we're watching Merlin, and is increasingly evident that Uther is right to kill every single magic user he encounters. They're all amazingly evil and piling up a huge bodycount. Uther and Morgana are so married, oh my god, she sits on a throne next to him and he keeps asking her advice. Sans ASH I don't think I'd be giving the series a re-watch, although I do admit the Merlin-Arthur interaction is satisfyingly snarky.

Also, Arfur is a prat.

We started out with a couple of hours in a cafe, where I discovered that my approach to the remix wasn't quite right, but I did find one that was. I have the shape of it in my head now. I might live to fail to plan again.

Random geekery: Prowl is the bomb. Growl notifications pushed to your iPhone!

Tonight's BPAL: St John's Eve. A summer bonfire, with frankincense and myrrh, bay rum, and white rose. Wow, wow, wow. Smoky incense. It smells just like the bowl of fine sand that kivrin gave me smells after I've burned sticky resinous incense and charcoal in it.
