adelagia: (merlin's woobie face)
Hey guys, Debbie Downer here. I understand Julian Murphy has been saying some surprisingly nice M/A-centric things about our ship in the DVD commentaries, which is cool, but... I don't get it.

Okay, I'll be the first to admit that I hold grudges for eternity and beyond, so the fact that this guy once (at least once) openly ridiculed M/A shippers for their M/A shipping probably colours my reaction right now. I know lots of you are really excited and happy about this, and hey, go for it. I'm actually kind of sad that I can't be squeeful with you, because this fandom has given me so many squees over the past few years.

I don't know; I haven't actually heard the commentaries. Maybe he sounds sincere in them. Did he realize, after five full seasons, that they were actually writing an epic love story between Merlin and Arthur after all? After five full seasons of publicly denying ANY homosexual undertones and calling M/A shippers delusional? Or did he and the other J's know all along, and they just weren't brave enough to say? I just... I don't understand. It feels too little too late for me. :(

Authors' Note: YAY!!! We're finally finished!! It's almost hard to believe! *squee* We've been working on this for over a year, which a crazy notion in and of itself, but it feels AMAZING to have reached the end, at long last! In an effort to keep this authors' note somewhat coherent, we want to discuss a few of the things we're particularly excited about. For one, the fact that this thing developed so organically. We had this idea in the beginning of where we wanted the fic to go, but as the characters developed and the storylines progressed, we went through massive changes in the story, because our original plan just didn't work any longer. We're both quite pleased with how that all turned out, though, and we feel that this fic was better because we allowed the characters to dictate it instead of the other way around. And obviously, we're both thrilled about Leon's role in this. Originally, we had him playing a very small role, and then somewhere along the line, he became a significant aspect of the fic, which was incredibly exciting. Our only regret about starting this before series 3 began filming was that we couldn't include Gwaine, since he is awesome! Anyway, we also need to send out a most sincere thank you to our wonderful beta/Brit-picker, [livejournal.com profile] ravenflight21, for being awesome and for committing to something when she probably had no idea what kind of investment it would involve. (Though in all fairness, neither did we, at the time.) Also, we need to say a HUGE thank you to the amazing people who were reading along as we posted, providing us with encouragement and support and laughing and crying in all the right places. Your feedback was such an immense joy, and we thank you for that!

adelagia: (mst3k | danger small talk)
Hiii, everybody! I am back from hanging out with [livejournal.com profile] accordingtomel. We clocked many, many hours of television, avoided the outdoors, played nerdy games, ate a lot, had a two-woman Merlin finale party, and squeed/ranted/laughed until it hurt. To sum up: it was awesome.

Merlin finale talk; wee spoilers )

Relatedly, Julian Murphy has made himself out to be a sexist, awful, ignorant man. I fart in your general direction, sir. Pathetic.

Unrelatedly, many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] elle_blessing for the lovely v-gift! *hugs*

Tradition dictates that I get sick every time I get back after a trip, so naturally I am now having to blow my nose every five minutes. Still, better now than during the visit, eh? How have you all been? I haven't been able to check the f-list diligently, so if you have exciting things to share, point me in the right direction!
