I'm sorry I mocked you earlier UK. Aaarg please don't let the Liberals in.

ps. Melbourne, my darling city, I am so proud of you!

I made this mix FOREVER AGO but I'm super super lazy. It's essentially just Young Lions and then a bunch of other songs I happened to be listening to. I feel a little guilty about including America as it's from The Lifted Brow (one of Australia's better literary journals).

All these young men, these young lionsCollapse )

I've been spending a good proportion of the day looking through the articles on NYT, The Guardian, and SPIEGEL - if you are in any way interested in war, Afghanistan, reportage, THE WORLD, read this stuff. It's been awesome.

I'm sort of torn up that my interests have diverged so much from the people I know these days - I really need to change courses so I CAN TALK TO PEOPLE when shit like this goes down.

As others have pointed out, it's not exactly new new information, but it is a beautiful thing of transparency, and wonderfully explicit.

On the one hand this is a very exciting thing, on the other, incredibly fucking depressing.

"Our men need to know they can count on each other in battle, and we can't have them getting distracted by illicit romantic dalliances," said Gen. James T. Conway, commandant of the Marine Corps. "Especially if one's a little blond Adonis farm boy and his buddy's a real tough street kid straight out of Brooklyn. I mean, think about it: What if they lock eyes and abandon their post to start ripping each other's fatigues off, revealing twin sets of glistening washboard abs and at last fulfilling their hidden passions?"

according to last.fm. It's more or less accurate although I turn off the scrobbler occasionally, or, embarrassingly, there would be even more Joanna Newsom - I kinda love her post surgery voice.

I know I haven't posted in well a over a year, but hopefully I'll start posting again after the exam period. I've finally finished S2 Merlin for one. And I've sorta gotten super into some new shiny war/history related fandoms (BoB, IB, GK, and the Pacific), and into British politics - and uh, less glamourously the figure skating fandom too. And I have ideas for fic! and mixes!

But! I just realised there are people who have friended me (Hi) and if you wanna be friended in return, do leave a comment.

#20 is a vague allusion to this fic (because fucking bunnies) by suaine, and #22 has a nod to David Bowie. A general knowledge of Arthurian tradition is probably helpful.

the trouble we possess
{ merlin, merlin/arthur, slash, unrelenting!angst. PG. 2,292 words }
He’ll want to say, ‘It’ll be okay.’ He’ll want to believe it too. Arthur walks his inevitable path, every day one click closer to his destiny; for Merlin, time is anything but linear.

notes: I say unrelenting, but I relent three times. Out of twenty-seven. Which isn’t that bad. The whole thing is following the same vein as my previous fic, here. Alternatively, you can just think of any other fic where Merlin leaves, or you can just read this sentence.

It is perhaps worth noting that I know fuck-all about Arthurian legend/British history/mythology. But any story that manages to allude both to Cole Porter and Frankie Boyle is pretty special in my books. Also: there will be typos.

but how strange, the change (from major to minor)
{ merlin, merlin/arthur, slash, angsty!schmoopy!humour. PG }
"You should have trusted me,” Arthur says through the dungeon bars. It’s worth knowing that if Merlin’s imprisoned, it’s most certainly Arthur’s fault; and that if he ever gets out he’ll never be welcome alive in Uther’s court.
note: this is chronologically all over the place.

Doctor’s voices are always kind, but their hands are always cold. Lessons it seems no one has learned from.
