Friday Fics Fix - Friends Don't Let Friends Execute Other Friends


'...it started with a bandit, sword falling downwards towards Arthur’s exposed side. 

It started with Merlin, leaping from behind a tree, hand outstretched, eyes gold, a wordless cry of fear on his tongue. 

It started with a bandit flying through the air, and Arthur turning to Merlin with fear in his eyes.'

I love BBC's Merlin.

First, cos it's just generally awesome. Second, cos anything that continues to re-tell Celtic/Welsh mythology makes me happy! 😁

Nerd Church - Happy Easter (or, Let's Respect Each Other, Yeah?)



Happy Easter/Pasg Hapus dearest nerdlets!

One of the most enduring symbols of Easter is eggs, dontcha think?

Chocolate eggs, painted eggs, eggs with chicks breaking out, eggs just randomly decorating everything!

But I've been noticing some egg-hate lately.

And I don't mean from Vegans - that's a whole different set of issues related to a different set of moral questions - nope, I mean from people who don't know much about history.

Friday Fics Fix - Easter in Haven



'Audrey and Nathan dashed into the Grey Gull, each imagining terrible scenarios. None of their fears involved Duke with a spatula in hand, staring at the bar.'

One of my favouritest TV shows of all time is Haven.

If you haven't heard of it, then I'm not angry, just disappointed (not in you - in Society in general! 😅)

Micropoetry - February + March 2019



I have a challenge for you for this Micropoetry post, dearest nerdlets! 😉

See if you can figure out what type of music I was listening to with each of these (there's only two, so it's not too bad!)

(This is just for fun, obv.)

I'll give you a clue: I was either listening to rap, emo, heavy metal, or opera.
