Right-o - before I head off for a nap. I've had my sister, brother in law and their two boys visiting today, to celebrate my b-day (which was yesterday)

Thank you to all the well-wishers - no, I do not consider 33 a high age XD

Thank you to [info]mos_self for virtual party hats *dons one and laughs*
Thank you to [info]sol_se for the virtual coffee - you have to love friends who know your favourite brand of poison *g*

and I have a small gift for the Merlin-minded of you. It's not... as such, in the NSFW category, but sorta? I mean, no dangly bits, but not exactly g-rated either XD (I'd say R-rated, nothing higher). I've had a hankering for a while to do a full sketch - with background. Nicci saw the very early stages of this one since I did the prelim sketch during our days in Alcester and Cardiff.

So, cheers everyone - hope you're all doing well.

*schmooches everyone*

Surfing again...  
Yes, again XD

I should have other things to do, but having done my duty and posted prompts/pairings/fandoms for the Porn Battle VII I think I'm allowed.

I came across a few references to there being wank in the Merlin fandom... eh... either I've been completely avoiding anywhere it goes on, or people don't know what real wank is. I mean, after Smallville, SG1 and Torchwood, wank has to be really WANKY for me to count it as such.

And it made me think, I know, I'll try not to hurt myself *g*

What's the nicest fandom you've ever been in and why?
And because it's only fair, what's the worst fandom you've ever been in and why?

My best? Firefly I think. I mean, fandomwise. Everyone I ran into was nice and it seemed the majority could handle about any pairing people could come up with. Of course it might've changed since then. It's been a while.

Worst? Somewhere between SG1 and Smallville. Seriously, people take themselves far too seriously. Oh, and Torchwood? I can't really take anyone seriously in that fandom XD Bunch of wankers, the lot of them.

Hmmmm, actually, the only thing that ever bugs me about the Merlin fandom, and actually, the TW one as well, is when I read fanfic and eventually wonder: "Are we even watching the same show?" But actual wank? Maybe someone opposes the Arthur marries Gwen thing. I think it makes as much sense getting worked up over that as it does to get annoyed that the show doesn't follow the better known versions of the Arthurian legends. The show's more or less an AU of the stories, even though those were re-written over the years, so who's to say what's fannon and cannon? It was prettied up for a more romantic period, adding Lancelot to the mix. So, tell me, does that make the occasional tweak of the legends 'fanfic'?

*ponders with a laugh*

*♥ her cracky fandoms*

Please, don't ever become a place of sanity.

Checking in...  
Jeez, sorry guys. I seem to have dropped off the face of the earth. I've been so bloody tired for the past week and with the Due South Seekrit Santa riding me like a mare. Not a lot of fun. But I've had it beta'ed and the deadline's on Monday ^___^

So, I'll be getting back to the drabble list - and there'll be more tomorrow.

Also, I have 3 pages of notes for a Merlin fic...

*hangs head in shame*
