Celeb: Angel sepia curls

*echoey silence*

I can't even really begin to formulate my thoughts on 2x13 at the mo' and how it has implications for series 3, and hell, how it reflects back on series 2. Overall, I enjoyed it though. I've decided to dedicate my day tomorrow to meta-writing, as it currently stands a little skeletal, and I want to polish the hell out of it before posting - I fear that anything regarding Gwen may draw haters, and I want to make sure there's as little in it for them to nitpick as possible. And in my dream world, a meta piece that's well written enough may cause people to think a bit in future (I don't, by any means, expect it to change minds, but just... reflect a little bit...) We'll see. *sigh*

In the meantime, I offer fic:

Title: While You Were Away
Author: kepp0xy
Characters/Pairings: Gwen/Arthur, Gaius, Merlin, mentions of Morgana
Genre/Rating: PG. Episode coda: angst, drama, a teeny bit of romance.
Spoilers/Warnings: 2x13. It's all about 2x13.
Words: 1840
Summary: Some of what Gwen was doing while certain other people were elsewhere.

Author's Note: This was me trying to get into Gwen's head space for this episode. There are definitely spoilers for 2x13 ripe throughout. Hopefully I've done her justice. Cut quote is by Lucille Ball. Here's to season 2, bbs. ♥

One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn't pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith.
