So summer has not been particularly good this year.

I mostly blame the recession that's nibbling away at my bank account like a famished termite. Seriously guys I'm working like three part-time jobs at the moment and still find myself considering selling a kidney to pay my rent.

On the plus side, my summer flat is amazing and so are my flatmates. I randomly bonded with Jennifer when she faux offhandedly mentioned Merlin and it's been a bang ever since (heee pun)

Ianto's my favourite, so I already prepared myself for a crying session since I've been mercilessly spoiled

University AU

Alright I bet someone will find that one in a jiffy. I've read it a couple of times and was sure that I bookmarked it but apparently, well, I haven't.
It's an Uni AU with Merlin being an art student (and wearing glasses!), there are two parts, the second involving a largely misinterpreted seduction of Lancelot?

not written up in the stars, apparently

ok, shit is getting serious. I'm nearly finished with Past Lives!AU, but I'm a bit on a writer'a block side right now so I am trying to be inventive in other spheres such as procrastination for example. Though I'm lying, what I'm about to post has been snagged from my dearest gealach_ros who stole it from my beloved osolone. I am officially a twelve year old girl (with a crush).

I'm gonna do it Karin's way since she makes nonsense have structure and look like sense.

1/Western Horoscopes

boisterous moi- Aquarius (though born on the 20.01 I sometimes qualify as a Goat)


When Libra and Aquarius join in a love match, their relationship can serve to heighten and strengthen both Signs' consciousness. These two connect on a high mental level; they share a love of art, people and culture; they both abhor restrictive influences in their lives. They are likely to get along well because they have such similar needs and will not require more of one another than they're both willing to give. Both Signs are also very energetic, enthusiastic types; this relationship is not likely to become stagnant.

Both Aquarius and Libra are concerned with the betterment of the world and their fellow people. Aquarius is the most progressive thinker of the Zodiac, and they always have a new idea in the works. Libra is the diplomat of the Zodiac; abhorring conflict of any sort, they are born balancers (hence their Symbol, the Scales). Libra's urge to avoid conflict put together with a love of intellectual freedom can lead them to be somewhat indecisive at times; when this happens, more decisive Aquarius can step in and help Libra figure out which direction to turn. Libra can return the favor by smoothing Aquarius's occasionally ruffled feathers that result from the Water Bearer's idealistic thinking sometimes crashing down in the face of reality.

Libra is ruled by the Planet Venus (Love) and Aquarius is ruled by the Planets Uranus (Rebellion) and Saturn (Karma). This combination of influences can be an interesting and productive one; Libra and Aquarius should certainly take on other projects together than simply their love relationship, because they can make great things happen using their hearts, their urge for progress and their consciousness of the greater good. These two are an extraordinary duo for standing up for social justice or radical change in the community.

so basically we can go off and make the world a better place.


When Capricorn and Aquarius join together in a love match, they tend to bring out the most positive attributes of one another. Capricorn is a more cautious, rational outlook on life, while Aquarius is insatiable, fostering an idealistic approach to nearly everything. On the surface, they may seem like total opposites, but once these two set eyes on one another, an unbreakable bond is formed.

Both Capricorn and Aquarius can be opinionated to the point of seeming unwilling to compromise. Capricorn thrives on organization and is always looking for consequences. Aquarius is modern and finds routine troublesome and boring. Capricorn will find wonder in Aquarius, but may get frustrated trying to find a stitch of logic in their partner's desultory, mystical mind. Aquarius will not appreciate the domineering streak in their partner, but will find the solid base that Capricorn provides to be a great support and will be relieved that someone will help them to take care of their personal matters.

Capricorn and Aquarius are ruled by Saturn, and Aquarius is also ruled by Uranus. Saturn is a cool, traditional energy. This planet is very goal-oriented and devoted to progressive thinking. Capricorn and Aquarius merge their strengths to Aquarian revolutions or Capricornian social status. Uranus is about all things different and unusual. Capricorn will show Aquarius a life based on organization, rationality and comfort. Aquarius can help Capricorn to dream more and possibly stand up for their beliefs.

I think they got it right at the 'insatiable' bit.

2/Chinese Horoscopes

Bradley- (Wood, ha ha am I the only one who laughed?)Rat
Colin- (Wood...c'mon lol, it's a little funny)Ox

The Tiger and the Rat may not be the best match in the world. For one thing, they're just a bit too similar for comfort! Both love to be the center of attention and both have charming, magnetic personalities. In social situations, these two might find themselves vying for the spotlight and developing a truly competitive relationship -- especially the Tiger, whose courageous, authoritative nature always wants to prevail.

As lovers, these two might have an incredible debut -- they will respond eagerly to one another's exciting, stimulating natures. However, after a while their clashing personality traits may begin to get in the way; the Tiger may tire of the Rat's self-promoting ways or constant verbal bantering and the Rat may tire of the Tiger's mood swings and authority plays. However, both these Signs are warm-hearted and loving with those they hold dear; if they can find common ground on which to stand, these two will make a durable, generous duo.

As business partners, these two will need to iron out their differences and decide who's "on top." The most natural set-up for these two would be for the Tiger, who is noble and authoritative, to be the "front person" while the Rat puts its shrewd mind to use behind-the-scenes.

This is so true that it's actually sort of scary, I'm not sure whom did I tell that to, but I remember saying that Bradley and I would either be best mates or hardcore rivals since we're both extroverted, bubbly attention whores.

The Tiger and the Ox may not be the most natural match. The main problem between these two lies in their vastly different approaches to life: The Tiger is untamable while the Ox is quite reliable; the Tiger is adventurous while the Ox is reserved; the Tiger is unfocused while the Ox is built for hard work and wants to do things right the first time. What's more, each Sign prizes its own characteristics as ideal, but neither Sign is likely to find its "ideal" traits in the other!

Paradoxically, these two can connect through their very differences. If they can learn to understand one another, they can benefit from the qualities in one another that they themselves are lacking. The Tiger can greatly benefit from the Ox's methodical, thorough approach to completing work, especially if these two are business partners, and in turn the Ox can learn to follow the Tiger's unpredictable lead, as the Tiger often hits on new and ingenious ideas. The Ox can teach the Tiger to buckle down and focus; the Tiger can teach the Ox to lighten and open up. These two Signs aren't completely opposite, either; each possesses a warm heart -- the Ox finds its greatest refuge in home, family and close friends -- and each is a noble, honorable soul. The Tiger's unpredictable, at times moody nature doesn't mean this Sign is untrustworthy; once the Ox understands this, doors will open up for these two to make a deep and lasting connection. The Ox's somewhat rigid and judgmental nature may make this difficult, but the Tiger's magnetic charm will help to win the Ox over in the end.

All is not lost Colin my love! All hope lies in my animal magnetism, apparently ;)

Oh life, never change

Hahahahaha so Nathan is regretting his life today and groaning on the floor in the living room. I told him not to (ever EVER) challenge an Orkney girl. We're born with whisky in our bloooooood.

Yesterday was hilarious, I had this wee adventure where I went to get fags and ended up in a gay bar with Morag and when Rhonna called me asking what was taking me so bloody long, I was like 'Fuck, if I know where I am right now.'
Also I have been singing 'Mamma mia, pass me that sangria' at some point. And we all ended up at a foam party yay!

Also I have wee teasers for solanyxe and kasiowy!!
