If you like Harry/Snape and (like me!) LOVE mpreg, then check out the great gift I received for [livejournal.com profile] snarry_holidays: Mirror Image. Thank you, mysterious artist!

I'm *almost* caught up with Merlin (but still haven't watched the most recent episode). After Elton's How gay is Merlin? freaked me out for a moment with: (And for all you Gwen-bashers out there — you'll be happy to know she meets a bad end.) I was all ready to go WHAT NOOOO, but it turns out (from another freakee on [livejournal.com profile] merlinxarthur) that the remark was somehow Torchwood-related. There's such a heavy onslaught of fic that Merlin's presence on [livejournal.com profile] yuletide looks increasingly funny. I've barely read anything so far, sticking mainly with authors I trust like [livejournal.com profile] thehoyden (Damsel in Distress, Misrule, Past Imperfect), [livejournal.com profile] lynnmonster (The Chatter of Britain) and [livejournal.com profile] rageprufrock (August and Three Castles 1 and 2). I'm become so wary and weird about trying unfamiliar (to me) authors. It's no wonder I have such a struggle with fandom's current anonyfest culture. I'm just not very adventurous, and I like to know what I'm in for before I launch into something. I've hardly read *anything* from [livejournal.com profile] snarry_holidays, which is pretty lax of me considering I'm a participant. Posting seems to have finished now so I asume a reveal will be up soon, but I really need to slave on [livejournal.com profile] yuletide instead of attempting any sort of catch-up. I've reviewed the Yuletide source material, which has led to much reviewing of *related* material, which has led to...well, not a lot of work done at all, but many pleasant hours whiled away. At least I'm house-sitting soon, which will give me some interruption- (and guilt-) free time.

Given an emotional standing ovation at a ceremony in Eindhoven, Van den Hoogenband kept to his promise of ending his career on December 7.

"I competed for the last time in Beijing, but I didn't want to leave you all before saying goodbye and, above all, thank you," Van den Hoogenband said.

The arrival of the retired Thorpe at the ceremony was a major surprise.

Thorpe said he "didn't want to miss such an important moment in Pieter's life".


And better yet: ‘When I saw him, I thought ‘I am not going to cry.’

Oh, swimmy boys.

Thank you - I like being led to any Merlin reading place that is the opposite of astray!

You should know that thisissirius has written only angst so far. Lovely angst, but fairly heart-wrenching all the way, except for 'prima inter pares'.

moonythestrals is the almost exact opposite.

Merlin links I like. Includes very many Merlin/Arthur stories, Morgana/Gwen, rps, a single gen story and some meta.

I should clarify that I mean 'prima inter pares' is not so angsty, not that it's not good.

But yes. It will be a happy day I create the tag morgana/gwen/merlin/arthur!
