Trying to figure out what to do with the kink_meme WIP. It's getting less comments chapter after chapter, and I suspect it's because the structure is all sloppy, and the plot all over these 19K words is the illustration to the words "total absence of the forementioned", like it usually is in my texts. Also, perhaps, because it's clear now that Merthur will not be the final pairing (I didn't know it would turn out like that, it kinda did it out of its own volition). Can't blame those who are disappointed by that, the prompt was about Merthur, after all; I am pretty disappointed myself with my writing efforts right now.
I wish I had someone whom I could ask for a detailed comment about what's wrong, an outside opinion and all. Well, I don't.

The best thing to do is to go and earn some money (who loiters around LJ, while having an urgent large translation to do? Right, I do). Maybe getting some actual work done will ease my brooding.

Jul. 8th, 2012

I'm turning 22 today. A strange birthday, going about the way I actually want it to for the first time in my life.
I've got a smartphone as a present from my family, and every time I look at its huge bright screen there's Colin Morgan's picture as the wallpaper, and my mood gets a boost every single time.

Also I've finished my Merlin RPF Big Bang entry recently and I'm working through the beta notes, got about half of them done so far. Can't wait for autumn to actually post it :)
There's still this WIP at kink_meme, and the Shakespearen AU, and a story in Russian for HP-fandom. I'll resume working on them all when I get home tonight, I think :)
I have graduated from the university. The certificates will be given to us in a month during a very pompous ceremony, but the main thing happened today so I'm free now, with an excellent mark and a strong recommendation to go and do the postgrad. I don't even want to think about it, I'm just being a dobby with a sock earned by long years of hard work.
Finally, fucking finally.

*goes to check the friend's page and get on with the fandom texts*

i mentioned i am a fangirl, right?

So today I got my paycheck at work and went to browse some shops instead of writing my grad work like a reasonable person.

I bought a couple of books on Arthurian legend - in Russian though, the best I could find - and a sword. The latter is, of course, a cheap blunt replica made in Spain and it says "Duque de Alba" on the blade but if you squint a bit you can imagine that this unnecessary line is actually something else. It's not hard to squint, I've just polished the whole thing properly and it shines so proudly as if it dreams of being a proper weapon when it grows up or something.

Take a look at itCollapse )
I think it's the perfect soundtrack for this Shakespearean AU I'm writing. At least that's how I see it develop, quiet and edgy at the same time, hopeful and hopeless. Diegol cnytte ©



Oh, and some fangirling before I go to bed (it's two a.m. at my place after all). I'm in love with this picture, unrequitedly, of course, but fiercely nevertheless.
