Intro )

It's not a fic though, it's a playlist, based on a fic that so far thankfully only lives in my head. It's split in 3 parts, because I need proper into music dammit. So the first part are Loki's songs before Martin, the second are Martin's before he meets Loki and the third are the two of them together, though from different points of view.

Playlist and lyrics and 4 pics, nothing huge )

The challenge is to rec a story you thought you wouldn't like because "it’s a fandom/pairing/trope/kink/genre/type of fanwork we tend to stay away from" but ended up liking anyway.

Well, I don't read a lot of those because I figure if I don't like I don't like, but, I managed to find 3 stories I did like despite my usual preferences, so yay.

Pressure Drop - by anon - Bradley/Colin (Merlin RPF)
It's about Colin having a kink about pissing himself and being humiliated about it.
Well, I'm not into piss kink in general, like, I'll read it if it's a part of a bigger story, but not as a pwp since it's just... not my kink. And I'm not into humiliation at all, but for some reason I gave this story a shot and ended up liking it.
It has a lot of FEELINGS. I love reading people being passionate about whatever they're doing. And these two are really passionate about this, and also scared and confused and it's all just like a speedball of emotions, UNGH.

2 stories - 2 anons - Martin/Douglas (Cabin Pressure)
These are 2 stories for the same prompt, Martin having to hook himself for money and Douglas finding out.
I hate reading prostitution. I know most my flist knows this but since it's an open post I feel I should explain. I have nothing against people choosing to do it as a way of making a living, I just hate how often it's either not a choice or is the ONLY choice and since I have issues with sex it feels like a horrible choice to have to make for me personally, even though for someone who loves sex or just has no issues with it, it can be a great way of making money.
But, like it or not, even those these characters are cis men, I still project a bit of myself on them and I don't like reading them in a situation that would make me so uncomfortable. I seriously hope I have managed to not offend anyone with this explanation.
Right, ehm, but since there is very little Douglas/Martin fic out there, and also since I like it when stupid actions (like not paying someone) have consequences, I wanted to give these stories a shot. I ended up liking them because I love protective Douglas showing his human side.

So, this one is a long time coming :)

Yes, I'm in the capital now, came here two days ago, am still getting to know it, but on Monday I'm leaving again (Slovenia first, then Germany) and I won't be back here for another month so it's a bit of a foreplay really :)

I'm thinking this post will be all about fandoms. 13 mid-sized images under cuts.

I think The Jeff Project about Spencer's dad is actually sweet. Spencer doesn't have to see it if he doesn't want to (hopefully no one is throwing it in his face) but there is support out there and he can know if he wants to. I hope his dad is ok.

I heard that one song off Patrick's upcoming album and I like it, musically. We'll see how I like the whole album when it comes out. I'm interested in your opinions on his new look. Because, while I find his new hair ridiculous, his face, omg. Be 12 Patrick, sure, that makes me feel good.

Sherlock (BBC) has been moved to 2012 :( That's ok... I can wait... :(
But then, this happened, so, whatever:

Cabin Pressure started on rocky grounds for me this season because of a lot of Martin misery, but they fixed it well and I completely loved the last episode.

More Benedict really. )

Jon Richardson is a British comedian that I want to keep in my pocket forever. He wrote a non-comedic book about (lack of) relationships and OCPD in his life and it's heartbreaking and lovely. I most recommend it.

Quotes:

“Let me witness the success of a moral person any day of the week over the success of a twat - show me an England football team filled with players who give their money to charity and congratulate their opponents and I will applaud their ten-nil defeat in a way I could never applaud a narrow one-nil victory by a bunch of greedy, philandering morons. Struggle to do something right and I will help you; profit in selfishness and I will hope you die. That’s the line, right there.”

“The sea is there to remind us what insignificant pieces of shit we all are. When you start to worry about death and how the world will cope without you, the sea roars its laughter down on the sands of your concern and tells you that it will be around long after you and was here long before you. You have to be old enough to appreciate this, having acquired intelligence and perspective not to misinterpret this as a threat, rather than the arm across the shoulder it really is. ‘Don’t worry old friend. The sands over which you walk are made up of the very bones of things that once, like you, worried about what would become of them. Now you can carry them away with you in your shoes and they find their way into the corners of your kitchen and bury themselves deep into your living toom carpet. They have no more to worry about, but I am here still.’”

Picture quote that makes your heart cry. )


Also have some pics of him being adorable:
Look )

He had a very homoerotic friendship with Russell Howard at one point, but alas they seem to be at odds at the moment. I await their reconciliation and in the meantime I have hours of flirty podcasts to hold me over. 

Generally speaking though, I'm torn on British comedians. And, well, comedians in general. They tend to say a lot of misogynistic and racist shit but it's "all ok because it's humor." I don't really think it is ok. So, there are things about them I love, and then things I cringe at.

"It doesn't matter where you came from, it matter where you go
no one gets remembered for the things they didn't do."

Frank Turner's album "England Keep My Bones" is a wonderful album you should listen to :)

Now then, I gave you a book and an album, hope this makes up for all the time I've been away :)
