Fandom rocks

Sometimes I forget just how bloody incredible fandom can be. It takes a reminder like this to see how this community, which is so diverse and so disparate, needs to be celebrated, for WE ARE AWESOME.

My creative output, such that it is

Well, I didn't quite make my writing target for the weekend--fell about 800 words short, but I did get 2500 words closer. And through a bit of smut that had been driving me crazy. I've felt so paralysed writing smut recently, trying to keep it from sounding like every other sex scene that's ever been written. I won't say what I came up with is revolutionary, but I do quite like it.

So here's the current word count:

(I had a flash of panic yesterday when the Merlin Big Bang mod put my name on the MIA list and didn't think I was still continuing with the story, but fortunately she'd overlooked several names, including mine. Yes, I'm still writing -- yes, I want art! I've never had art! I want art!!!)

This weekend, I also "relaxed" making another Alles Was Zählt vid, this time a cracky one about the crazy EYEFLASH that they use at the end of every episode. Left at the altar? EYEFLASH! Discovered that the sleazy hunk you're shagging is your half-brother? EYEFLASH! Boyfriend's gay (or not-gay)? Partner's secretly a criminal mastermind? EYEFLASH! EYEFLASH!!! EYEFLASH!!!!!!

And I have another video rec: Memories of Firefly. I cannot stop watching this -- the editing is just fabulous and it's making me nostalgic for those days when I watched Firefly constantly as my comfort show, kinda like Merlin is now, I guess. (In contrast, I've seen Serenity only once; it's too hard to watch. I really hope Merlin S2 won't be like that!)

Right. Work is waiting. Oh, Monday, how thou doth vex.
