So you know how there are those films you cry buckets over when you're a kid? Well, for me they included such titles as Bambi, The Lion King and Black Beauty.

6th-Dec-2011 01:29 pm - (bad quality) Chick pics!
These are pretty bad and don't do the fluffy thing justice at all, but it's a very cold day and I didn't want to get him out of the brooder. I'll probably take better pictures later in the week.

4th-Dec-2011 04:23 pm - Quails!
Or more correctly - quail!

I wasn't expecting any to hatch as it's the first time I've tried to hatch eggs and generally everything went wrong... but the outcome's surprised me! 

I have a bright, fluffy, yellow quail chick running around the incubator. S/he is so cute. Just a ball of yellow puff. Earlier the chick kept snuggling up with a bundle of unhatched eggs and I keep hoping that at least one more will hatch, just so s/he has a companion. Going to give the chick a little teddy bear or something anyway when I move her/him to the brooder, just to snuggle with if s/he wants.

I'm not counting on the other hatching, but fingers crossed! This one still needs a lot of care so will be keeping a good eye on her/him. One of her/his toes is bent which I think is probably an egg-deformation rather than it being broken, but it should straighten up. If it looks like its causing problems then I'll help it out, but otherwise I think I have another bird to add to the trio outside!

I'll post some pictures tomorrow when the chick's settled in ^^

Also, on a completely unrelated note, the amazing mightyprettyhas created a Merlin/Arthur fanvid to Lana Del Ray's Video Games. I'm in love with her and this video is amazing. Watch it here!
22nd-Nov-2011 06:39 pm - Fic Rec: Merlin
Okay so I don't usually rec things because I'm about ten years behind on things, but this fic is just... amazing.

The series is Loaded March by Footloose and it's seven titles at the moment. I'm only on the 4th story so I'm not 100% sure, but I think it's still an ongoing series. Still, the total count so far is about 330k which is far from shabby and so worth it.

I am in no way, shape of form a fan of military stories. To me, most of it goes over my head as I'm just not interested in the genre. But this story - set in modern times - is just... well I've spent all day reading it. It's so detailed and yet not bogged down at all and it just had everything you want (well, I want) in a story.

If you're looking to spend a couple of days doing nothing but immersing yourself into an amazing story and world, then I'd recommend that you give this series a chance. I'm enjoying this so much and just never want it to end!

It starts with: Radioman

Here's my fill for merlin_muses I had a lot of fun writing it :D

The title comes from folklore that the sparrow is a herald of death and to catch one is to defeat death itself.

Pairing: Arthur/Merlin
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Though he was chosen as sorcerer for Camelot’s court when Arthur became king, Merlin can’t trust in his abilities. Shifting into animals has never been accomplished before, but Merlin sets out to prove his worth to the kingdom, knowing that no kingdom, however great, can last with a gap between the two most powerful people in the land.
Warnings:  Mention of (mild) torture, very, very brief mention/suggestion of rape, death of minor character (opposing king).
Word Count: ~13,300

On a related note, AO3 beta looks really nice. It's all neat and looks lovely!
1st-Nov-2011 01:02 pm - Writing rambling...
Finally starting my  100k_supernova today. I'm hoping to get a good chunk of it done for NaNoWriMo (my name is Imperial Mint over there, feel free to be my writing buddy or whatever, we can struggle on through together!) and then have the motivation to finish it!

Been though about 100000 plot ideas for it and even when I'd decided it wouldn't work. The Polo-Merlin fic is probably going to become next year's big bang and the one I'm doing now is for a prompt on the kinkme_merlin. Won't say which one in case I change my mind...

Other than that I have a few other projects I'm just going to list.

-  merlin_holidays submission
- An AU of 4x05 in which Merlin gets captured
- Update & eventually finish a kmm fill I have going on

And that's it actually... okay not as bad as I thought! It's just finding the time/motivation to do them. That's the hard thing.

24th-Oct-2011 06:44 pm - The White Dragon of Camelot 1/1
Pairings: Arthur/Merlin and a brief mention of Arthur/Gwen and Gwen/Lancelot.
Word Count: ~9000
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Contains spoilers for 4x04.. A dragon egg can remain unhatched for a thousand years, but it takes many more for a dragon to grow. This is the story of Aithusa from birth to the dawn of Albion as the white dragon to guide Camelot towards its golden age.
After that ep? Had to be done! Hope you enjoy.

aislinarchives has kindly translated this fic into Hungarian over at aislinfics. You can find the story here

The White Dragon of CamelotCollapse )
I took part in kinkme_merlin Never Have I Ever and this is a roundup of what I wrote for it. They're all unbeta-ed and probably riddled with errors, but still.
