If you want to pick some questions for me to answer, you can still do so here: http://elirwen.livejournal.com/95295.html

And now the answers:

9. Which fic has been the hardest to write?
From the finished ones, it was definitely Experiment. There's more of me in this fic than in others.
And when it comes to WiPs, it's definitely Bohemian Rhapsody. That writer's block is huuuuuge.

10. Which fic has been the easiest to write?
There isn't a lot of easy ones. They're usually very fluffy and/or hurt/comforty.

17. Do you write your story from start to finish, or do you write the scenes out of order?
I usually write from start to finish. Most of my stories start with one scene that I want to write and the rest of the fic grows around it. But I wait to write that scene until its time in the fic comes because my fics grow and change as I write, which means even that first idea can evolve into something slightly different.

19. Stephen King once said that his muse is a man who lives in the basement. Do you have a muse?
Colin Morgan is my muse. :D No, really, I look up to him a lot. I want to be like him. Kind, hardworking, humble. To become an inspiration to someone, just like he is to me.

29. If you could write a sequel (or prequel) to any fic out there not written by yourself, which would you choose?
I'd write a miraculous happy ending to "Pianos are made for falling." That fic is beatiful, but it messed me up really badly. Anytime I hear piano combined with violin, I want to cry.

'What DnD character you are?' was the topic.

I will post the pictures in a separate entry sometime later in the week.

I first started watching Merlin because...: I was there from the beginning. I was pretty excited there would be a fantasy tv show. My first reaction to Colin was 'oh, that's the guy from Midnight'. I remember how I waited every Saturday for a rip to be uploaded somewhere I could download it from. I think I completely fell in love with the show after the hurt/comforty 1x04 Poisoned Chalice. I wasn't even shipping anyone back then (I didn't even know what shipping is, to be honest). But then on a con, I watched a few Merthur music videos and met Merlin fanboy who is also very much in love with Bradley. And after the con I read my first fanfic. That's how it all started. :D
Favorite season of Merlin: definitely the first. I keep going back especially for the unicorn episode which is my comfort episode. I thing I watched it at least thirty times already. :D
Merlin OTP: Merlin/Arthur. It's canon after all. :D
Merlin second favorite ship: I don't really have one. I have just a bunch of sidepairings that I enjoy. Leon/Morgana (I have absolutely no idea why when it's absolutely nonexistent in the series), Gwen/Lancelot, Gwaine/Percival (and Gwaine/anyone)...
Favorite knight: I'll go with Leon because he's so calm and mature, but still so sweetly naive at times
Favorite female character: Morgana. But I like her more when she's not evil.
If I were a character on Merlin, I would be... I'd like to be Merlin because he has magic and gets to have Arthur. :D But I'd probably be more of a Gwen. You know, ordinary, has to work to survive, has younger brother, and falls for a guy who's very out of her league. Or maybe I'd be Mary, the barmaid from the Gwaine episode. We definitely share the physique. :D
Merlin fic I recently read & loved: [livejournal.com profile] k_nightfox's Drawn From the Heart
Merlin fanart I recently viewed & loved: [livejournal.com profile] puckboum's art that served as an inspiration for my reverse bb fic. It's really awesomely lovely. :) http://puckboum.livejournal.com/9292.html
Merlin comms that are improving my life: [livejournal.com profile] merlinxarthur all the way
Three Merlin LJ friends I recently made: I don't really know and am too lazy to look it up. :D
Last Merlin LJ post I wrote: With a Sweep of a Charcoal (Merlin/Arthur, NC-17)
Latest cast news that had me flailing: Probably the news about Colin in Tempest. :)
My feelings about Colin Morgan performing in the Tempest: flailing :D also, sadness I won't be able to go see for myself. I just hope there will be pictures. And that we'll get some barely clothed Colin. I wanted to see him shirtless for ages.
Here's a gif: yep, that one again... :D

I borrowed this from [livejournal.com profile] geekslave's lj.

Apparently, if you get a score over 85 you don't have a life. Well, I doubt it's because of the movie watching. :D

Pick up the book nearest you. Turn to page 45. The first sentence describes your sex life for 2012.

All done in the name of your protection, to prevent You-Know-Who getting in at you.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

well... I have no idea what this could mean... :D

My pledge? I promise to make something handmade for the first 5 people who comment on this post. The catch? You must then post this on your own LJ/FB/Twitter (wherever you like) and make something for the first 5 people who comment on it.

The rules? Items must be handmade* by you and the recipients must receive them before the end of 2012. So what are you waiting for?

*when it says handmade, it doesn't have to be anything major like a chest of drawers. It can be anything as simple as some graphics (if you don't want to give out your address), or a card, or origami, crafts, sewing, knitting, food related, anything at all.

I can make only Internet gifts.
I can write you a fic based on your prompt. (Merlin/Arthur only, up to NC-17, main squicks: character death, infidelity, genderbender) You can ask for another chapter of my WiP story or a fic set in my existing 'verse too.
Or I can make a photo story with my action figures (something like this or this). I have Merlin and Arthur + a toy dragon, Kaspian and Edmund (Narnia), and poor lonely Draco Malfoy. Also, I can borrow Morgana from my brother.
