Fic: The Gods May Throw the Dice; Arthur/Gwen Morgana Morgause Uther Merlin Gaius; PG-13

My head. It aches :( I blame the heat, and the fact that I bought crappy juice. How are you doing? ♥


Title: The Gods May Throw the Dice
Author: kepp0xy
Rating/Genre: PG-13 with some R-rated insinuations; angst, angst, angst and a touch of romance eventually.
Characters/Pairings: Arthur/Gwen, Morgana, Morgause, Merlin, Gaius, Uther, Odin, OC
Warnings/Spoilers: please see A/N for spoiler warning :)
Words: ~7800
Summary: There is already tension between Arthur and Gwen when it is discovered that Odin has a daughter, and he is willing to make peace with Camelot... On the condition that Arthur marries her.

Author's Note: This is byproduct of being a bit tipsy, on a long bus ride home at 2am when "The Winner Takes It All" decided to play angstily on shuffle reminding me of series 3 spec and spoilers. That said, this is loosely based on said spoilers and spec, but I don't really consider the fic itself speculation and so if you weren't aware of the spec/spoilers to begin with, you wouldn't be able to pick out the bits of the fic which were inspired by them. This was initially meant to focus on Arthur/Gwen and their experiences apart, but then something resembling a proper plot inserted itself into the mix and it greeew.

My everlasting thanks to the brilliant, ever generous imigination for her beta read of this, and for encouraging me to go where my brain leads, even if it means certain other things are sidelined in the process ♥♥♥


"Guinevere," he begins and she doesn't need to let him finish to know the words he will speak.

There is no slight smile of greeting on her face this time as she moves to him, twines her fingers and lets them drop to hang before her, heavy against her thighs.

She knows; he needs to say it and she wishes he wouldn't.
Merlin: Gwen promo

Ooooold meme, stumbled upon, providing lots of reason for procrastination

1. Pick a character, pairing, or fandom you like.
2. Turn your music player on and turn it on random/shuffle.
3. Write a drabble/ ficlet related to each song that plays. You only have the time frame of the song to finish the drabble; you start when the song starts, and stop when it’s over. No lingering afterwards!
4. Do ten of these, then post them.


I confess to three things:

1) Continuing to write after the a few of the songs finished playing for the first time (though the pieces remain mostly unedited);
2) Skipping the occasional song when I was somewhat unfamiliar with it/it did not inspire anything Merlin / Gwen related;
3) Spending way more time on this meme than I really ought to have considering paperlegends wants around 10,000 words in 3 days time (which, now I see that days have vanished, cue: instant stress ;__;) and I am also meant to be doing ~important~ things like finding employment =X

That said, here, have a few ficlets. Some are based on random tidbit spoilers for series three, but if you aren't aware of the spoilers, you won't be able to tell which is spoiler-inspired and which is not.

Basically this post is: WEEE PHOTOS and coding & YouTube are a nightmare

Fair warning that these photos are ridiculously big if you click them, hokay? And this is defo not dial-up friendly at all. Possibly not even broadband friendly :P

Celeb: Angel sepia curls

I have little idea what of this is new-news, and what's already known, so have the lot ;D!

Way too tired to do a proper updatey update now, but to recap and unload my brain a bit:

Collapse )

Non-Merlin specific:
- Pierrefonds castle & village are stupidly beautiful, as in literally breath-taking... This tiny fairytale place asleep by 7pm if they wake up at all.
Eta: your proof, if it was required

- Nothing makes a person want to hardcore marathon S1 & 2 of the series than some set-visiting. My fingers are selfishly crossed that the weather this weekend is shitty so I have a good excuse.
- Dover ferry terminal is really creepy at half twelve on a Thursday
- Driving in France is not so scary; admittedly I was nowhere near Paris.
- Pierrefonds may be gorgeous beyond belief but there are many hills and many steps and much necessity to run up and down and all around to chase filming and thus, I depart for food and sleep.

Final fast note: All cast got their gifties~ Katie, Colin and Bradley were given them directly, Angel was feeling sicky last night and so we gave it to the crew to give to her. As reported by imigination (tyvm ♥!) here (eta: just actually read this entry, LMAO bahaha <3) via robinmarian's text today, she received her things and liked them :)
General: quiet morning

slow sunday

Hi darlings! Voting for challenge nine of thefuturequeen LIMS closes in a few hours and we could do with some more votes! So if y'all would sidle on over here and cast your choice, it'd be much appreciated ♥

I hope you're all doing splendidly and that your Sundays are nice and sunny ;D!
General: blossoms

snip

Friends cut. Mututally haven't connected, don't comment, lost touch... Mostly the usual reasons combined with the fact that things are probably going to get more RL around here for a bit, and the size of my flist has kept me from reading it for ages and I feel really really badly about that.

Hopefully no hard feelings :) I wish you luck and happiness and I'll probably see you around <3



If you think I cut you by mistake or you've been on hiatus (like I've been!) don't hesitate to comment here and I'll fix that!

I also want to emphasise that if you originally friended me for the fic that I write, please watch freemurmurs instead. There should be updates there shortly. Thanks :)
