+ A new anthology, Headcase, is accepting submissions for non-fiction pieces by LGBTQ writers & artists about mental illness.
+ I still have not watched Merlin. I may not do so before tomorrow evening. Woe!
+ People. I see this all the time and it pains me in my soul just a little. 'Discrete' and 'discreet' are two different words with two very different meanings. Discrete means 'separate and distinct'. Thus, even if Arthur and Merlin (hypothetical example!) are keeping their relationship on the down low, I rather doubt that they'd feel particularly discrete about it.
/end friendly PSA!
+ Lastly, some vid & fic recs!
Once and Future by 10leaguesbeyond [Merlin/Torchwood, Merlin/Arthur, Jack/Ianto, Jack/Merlin, PG-13]
Four times Merlin Emrys met Jack Harkness (and one time he met Jack Harkness)
This has pitch-perfect characterisation and it's a really fabulous series of ideas. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this over lunch today.
in this state she gallops by la_esmeralda_ [Merlin, Gwen, Morgana, Merlin, PG]
The one where Gwen’s bffs teach her magic.
MAGICAL GWEN. \o/ \o/ \o/
Woot Canow by siriaeve [SGA/The West Wing, ensemble, standard rating]
This is an SGA/West Wing AU, based on The West Wing 1.15, 'Celestial Navigation.'
If you've seen the episdode referred to, or even if you haven't, GO READ. HILARIOUS. OMG. The SGA!White House is made of total win. And obviously Rodney is Josh, ahahahaha.
Dorian by kalichan [Torchwood, Jack/Oscar Wilde, standard rating]
"Have I not stood face to face with beauty; that is enough for one man’s life." - Oscar Wilde.
More Jack/historical or mythical figures! :D This is just perfection - the tone is so aching and gorgeous, and I really like to think that they had these meetings.
The Mystic's Dream [Merlin], by yorunohime
How perfect is Loreena McKennit for this fandom? Very, let me tell you. This is so atmospheric and really gorgeous.
Destroyer/Lover by la_esmeralda_ [Merlin, Morgana-centric]
I love the cutting style in this, and there are some really lovely shots paralleling motion, especially around 0:37.
Shelter From The Storm by chaila [Sarah Connor Chronicles, Ellison/Sarah]
This is such a perfect marriage of music, character and editing, it's the perfect vid for this ship and has lots and lots of Ellison being wonderful.
