[ profile] eremon_lass, I have written you silly Kay/Bedi! Happy belated birthday! :)

So I finally finished the last book in Gerald Morris' Arthurian series. I had been getting steadily more disappointed, as the last three or four books were kind of awful, but the last one was actually really good. I mean, evil!2-D!Mordred, but I've really given up on that front. And yeah. I cried. At my client's house, stealthily, while she was napping and watching The Waltons. >_> I would say Mr. Morris has seen himself off with a pleasing dignity.

BUT now I am all sad b/c all my dumb Arthurian boys are dead, so obvs. this is your cue to ask for porn of them, as I am doing: THIS MEME (which shall be called This Meme):

01 » Submit a pairing (or threesome, or solo person) and a prompt by replying to this post.

02 » Please use the following format: fandom, pairing, prompt.

03 » I'll then reply with five* sentences of smut.
[The original meme does say that you can request gen/other non-smutty things, but I'll say straight up that I'd prefer to flex my porn muscles (that was a TERRIBLE thing to say) and so would prefer that request. Having said that, y'all can of course request whatever you'd like, and I may even turn some requests into gen depending on how I feel about my ability to write the smut. Also, I guess "solo person" here refers to masturbation in the context of smut? Which I'm fine with too!] <-- so said [ profile] blindmadness and [ profile] julietveiled, so say I.

04 » If I can't do the prompt then I will beg for your forgiveness, and offer it up to others let you select another if you'd like.

This is not really restricted to Arthuriana. I also write Sherlock, Westmark, certain historical novels, Shakespeare, and can probably be conned into others if you remind me of what they are (when I'm done I will tag this post with the appropriate fandoms).

Just so you know, I have been AWESOME on the train to-day. I know that only, like, two people actually care, but I got more than half my Cai/Marguel theoretical Marguel-is-weird-and-has-weird-issues fic written, AND. AND AND AND.

I spreadsheeted the hell out of the New Britain timeline. Drafted it up into three different spreadsheets for the pre-war period, the reign, and the post-war period, put in all the death and birth dates, noted important events and treaties, and also significant relationship changes.

Now I am sitting in the Philly train station; my train leaves at 1.55 and it is ON TIME, how sweet is that? The only negative thing right now is that my back is still really messed up from two weeks ago, and it feels like I am going to fall over and die if I make a wrong move. I really probably need to see a doctor about it, but shhhhhh.

I need some kind of New Britain icon. I wonder how to do that.

But in GENERAL, I have been awesome to-day. Like, when people say "awesome" it's actually slang for "Soujin" type awesome. So I'm feelin' pretty good about that. When I get the timeline done I will force [ profile] mhari to do something to make it look presentable and up-on-the-website nice so that we can be even more official and organised. And that will be sweet.

So, Thanksgiving break. I got into a yelling match with my uncle because he said that children don't absorb racist messages in films and that if you're not mentally deficient you should be able to turn off your sociological cultural context when you go to watch a movie, ha ha. I am not overly fond of my uncle.

On the plus side, I also got my hair cut and it is super cute. My hermit crabs enjoyed living in Mama and Daddy's room where the main heater is, and they are mad at me for bringing them back to school and putting them in my cold dorm room. :( I really need to buy them a heat lamp like I promised.

I am so not ready to start back to classes, so my plan for to-night is to hide in my room and pretend nothing exists.

Also, here is an incredibly depressing Arthurian space!AU fic that I wrote for [ profile] mhari:

Title: These Happy Endings
Fandom: Arthuriana IN SPACE!
Characters/Pairings: Gadriet/Eluned [Gaheris/Lynette], sundry extras.
Rating: PG-16
Notes: Gadriet suffers from schizophrenia and as a result he self-medicates with animal tranquilisers. Eluned is aware of this fact and has been for a long time.

Also, if you aren't aware of what a botfly is, don't google it. And especially don't google image search it. Really, I'm doing you a favour.

These Happy Endings )
psalm_onethirtyone: (When Are We Going to GET SOMEWHERE?)
You guys have NO IDEA how glad I am that this film is not about what I thought it was going to be about. Jeez, way to give a girl a heart attack.

Also, this remains my only motivation for learning French.

A few words about webcomics:

The current arc in Arthur King of Time and Space is really, really sad. ;____; It keeps making me wibble. A lot.

I discovered this newish comic called Selkie. I'm still getting used to the writing style but I actually really like it. Oh, selkies, I am a complete sucker for you.

And [ profile] the_chloroplast introduced me to Manly Guys Doing Manly Things, which is surprisingly hilarious. Updates Mondays!

I think I have found a new freshman to kidnap. Good times.
psalm_onethirtyone: (Lance Suuuuuuuucks)
Since Lancelot is about the only Arthurian character for whom I have not offered some kind of alternate-interpretation maybe-you-do-not-totally-suck-despite-preconceived-notions-held-by-many-authors--mainly because Lancelot is the golden boy of Arthurian re-interpretation profic and has more fans that he deserves to begin with--I present the following to remedy.

(oh, p.s. I'm on vacation right now which is why my comments have been even more sporadic than usual. bear with me, thanks. >_>)

Title: The Knight of the Star
Fandom: Arthuriana
Characters/Pairings: Lancelot, Bors, Lionel, implied Lance/Gwen
Rating: PG at worst
Notes: I don't know what I'd do if I couldn't indulge myself with pointless description. :P

He had borne the night-long vigil in the chapel without effort, praying to God for more strength when he remembered but mostly daydreaming of future quests and beautiful ladies. )
psalm_onethirtyone: (Only Time Gold Doesn't Sink)
DUDE. So I was checking out books for a lady at the library, and discovered that there is a series of Arthurian romance novels called Knights of the Round Table.

I put the Geraint/Enid one on hold for me. Because LOL. They can't be worse than Rosalind Miles.

p.s. Cheyenne gave me a CATFISH. He is awesome and needs a good whiskery name.
psalm_onethirtyone: (Dye My Eyes and Call Me Pretty)
I seem to have written ALL THE FIC IN THE WORLD during the month of July. Idk. This is about two weeks old.

Title: Portions for Foxes
Fandom: Arthuriana
Characters/Pairings: Sagramore/OC
Rating: PG-13
Notes: Present for [ profile] mhari! Completely based on a throwaway comment Sagramore made during rp, because I am a nerd.

It wasn’t what she would have chosen, if she had been able to choose exactly what kind of friends they would be )
psalm_onethirtyone: (Dye My Eyes and Call Me Pretty)

Title: Holy Week
Fandom: Arthurian
Characters/Pairings: Galahad, Percy, Heliabel, implications of pairings wherever you want to see them.
Rating: PG
Notes: An Easter present for [ profile] tiamatschild! It only took me four months, too! Sigh.

I am not a prophet. I am not even a prophet’s son. )


Title: The New Britain Job
Fandom: Arthurian/Firefly
Characters/Pairings: Mal, Inara, Companion!Sagramore, Gaheris, Dinadan
Rating: PG
Notes: Totally fluffy and self-indulgent. A birthday present for [ profile] skaryma, who should feel better soon. ♥

Anyone would think Mal was jealous or something, and Mal doesn’t get jealous. )


Title: Optimism
Fandom: Arthurian AU
Characters/Pairings: Gareth, Clarissant, Lyonors, Agravain, Gawain, Morgause, sundries; Gareth/Lyonors, Lamorak/Morgause
Rating: PG-13
Notes: [ profile] snowyofthenight challenged me to write a story based on the fact that Gaheris and Gareth used to be the same character. Her question was "does that mean Gareth originally killed Morgause?" He didn't, it used to be Agravain (and still is some places), but I wrote the fic anyway. Also, I tried out a totally new style of writing, so I apologise, a tricky AU challenge is probably not the place to see what would happen if you used modern narration in an Arthurian fic, but hopefully it's not too jarring.

It is also a horror story. I'm not sure how that happened, but it totally did. If it creeps you out a bit, then I did my job right.

Everyone had this idea that Gareth was stupid because he was optimistic, but he saw more than he said and always had. )
psalm_onethirtyone: (Little Breezes Dusk and Shiver)
Meme, robbed from [ profile] eremon_lass. Also, to-morrow is Posting Of Tonnes Of Fic Day, so beware. There are horrors.

Also, I have been having nighttime crashes like crazy lately, I don't even know what. Dear Brain: can I please not get depressed at night for a few days? That would be nice. Love, me.

1. Write down the names of 10 characters.
2. Write a fic of fifteen words or less for every prompt [the last one goes over by two words, but
I don't care], using the characters determined by the numbers. Do NOT read the prompts before you do step 1.

1. Sagramore
2. Ragnelle
3. Galahad
4. Dinadan
5. Kay
6. Mordred
7. Arthur
8. Lancelot
9. Guenever
10. Agravain

This was harder than it looks. O_o )
psalm_onethirtyone: (Dye My Eyes and Call Me Pretty)
Style meme!

Silliness! Britannia folks only, this go-around )

And, bonus, one for [ profile] mhari:

Laura Ross
Height: 5'10"
Build: Thin, but sturdy, and highly muscular
Hair: Long, red, and prone to tangles
Style: Sweaters and jeans. She prefers dark colours, blacks, browns, greys, subdued greens and navys, and the occasional porridge-y beige. Clothes are very much not her thing.
Pajamas: In the Army she slept in her uniform pants and an undershirt. As a civilian, she wears a long cotton/poly green nightgown of her mother's, and it always makes her feel weird.


in other news, I am finally not sick again--apparently, you subject your body to one little bout of hypoglycaemia on a Friday and you spend the next three days dying of a fever and massive digestive system trauma. Also, I'm allergic to bee stings after all. My hand is finally not the size of a grapefruit any more, but pffffffft.
psalm_onethirtyone: (Not Me! Erro ero)
Reproduced from my FaceBook, but:

......I am doing research for a paper on chivalric codes and courtly love right now, and I just read this line: "Chapter 1, a prelude of sorts, traces the brief history of Parzifal's penis, from its debut in Wolfram's Parzival, through its return engagement in Albrecht's Jungerer Titurel, to its surprising failure to make an appearance in the Rappoltsteiner Parzifal". WHAT. WHAT. I don't even--WHAT.

I mean, admittedly it is a book about eroticism in chivalric literature, but-- OH MY HEAD.


Edit: SAME SOURCE contains a reference to Gawain dying of laughter at finding out about Some Guy's castration. Oh, Gawain. <3 Stay classy.

Edit 2: Son of Edit: EVEN BETTER. a different source, on the subject of chivalry towards women: "Examples of knightly police action on behalf of women include killing a serial rapist (Book VI, chapter 5. Sir Thomas Malory, Le Morte D’Arthur(London: Penguin, 1969))". YESSS. Knightly police action.
psalm_onethirtyone: (Hear that Meta?)

Finally finished my Gaheris epic! Go me!

I am still at Delaware Valley. :D We are sitting in the dining hall trying to hawk bee club t-shirts.

psalm_onethirtyone: (Open the Legend)
I guess I'd just like to state for the record how thrilled I am that Arthur King of Time and Space is doing Sagramore comics.
psalm_onethirtyone: (This is My Way out of This)
And as long as I'm posting ridiculous numbers of fics, here is one that's been on my computer for the last six months:

Title: High Tide
Fandom: Arthurian legend
Characters/Pairings: Gaheris/Selkie
Notes: Incoherent with gratuitous blood! Yay!

High Tide )
