Today I did work... *listens to the gasps of surprise* I now have four pages of secondary source quotations for my Germanic Myth and Legend Essay. Only slight problem so far - I haven't reread the primary sources in the last... two years. Whoops. But all of that will be sorted tomorrow and Friday then I shall write it over the weekend and spend next week on my Forms of English Drama Essay of DOOOM...

I'm really not looking forward to that one. I'm fairly certain that everything we've learnt in the seminars has been pointless and superficial. Don't get me wrong, I like the tutor (she gave me awesome chilli flavoured Haribo that made my eyes water) but she does tend to get sidetracked by shiny things, and ask us to think about a masque to present to Gordon Brown... yep, that's right. A masque. Me and the guy next to me decided that we would have Fortune and Thrift as anthropomorphic personifications on either side of Gordon Brown, a huge dance number about the credit crunch and not borrowing money any more and then Gordon would give a speech and money would rain down from the ceiling...

But I get sidetracked. I was talking about my essay, I can't even remember what I'm going to write on at the moment, but I'm sure it will come back to me. It had better.

In other interesting things (well, interesting in a strangely bizarre way) just went out to buy cereal and discovered that the 375g packs were 89p each, while the 600g packs were £2.30 something or thereabouts. For some reason, that seems wrong.

Have got past first/second bout of writer's block on [livejournal.com profile] reel_merlin and I've introduced Sophia... and Will, and Hunith. Poor Will is desperately in love with Merlin who's desperately in love with Arthur who is desperately in love with Sophia who is an evil bitch monster (as per usual) So what if it's cliche and terrible? I'm having fun!

And I will post the next chapter of Equilibrium tonight because it's been almost two weeks now and I am a terrible person, but I got distracted by Christmas and relatives and New Year and shiny new presents and DVDs (The Sarah Connor Chronicles is awesome btw, and who cares if I'm watching the Terminator series in the wrong order).

I have more ideas for Morgana centric fic as well, apparently I love writing her, but I can't put her as a background character in Merlin/Arthur fics. She demands to be centre stage for some reason. Oh, and I really want to write something angst-ridden and dark and future revolving around Merlin and Arthur but there is only a want and not a plot, so that will have to wait *sigh*.

Strange thing... in one of my fics I keep typing hand in magic instead of hand in marriage. I've done it at least five times (crack! fairytale fic, don't ask) Does that mean something?
