anon:holmes/watson, first time -- by which i mean first meeting. watson's all fucked up, just back from the war! and holmes is all, you know, crazy and holmesian! how do they wind up living together (in sin)?
>:Not to be a jerk, but the way they wind up living together in canon is pretty fucking slashy on its own...
>>:So does that mean that Arthur Conan Doyle retroactively fulfilled a kink meme prompt?
Merlin could not escape his SIN.He should have HEEDED the old man’s warning. Instead, here he was standing in the RAIN. He felt LOST, and not only because he was somewhere in the middle of the woods. Usually so full of life, the woods were eerily silent - he would be surprised if there was a single CONEY in the closest mile.
He was a PICTURE of monsters of legend - covered in mud from neckerchief to vivienne westwood boots and sodden to the bone. Everywhere he looked, all he could see were the muted HUES of desolation.
A rock hit him on the back of the head out of nowhere, and he began to feel his grip on the world EBB away. The last he saw was a swimming vision of the prince - his LIEGE - standing above him in the drizzle.
When he came to, he was propped against a log, and could only wonder who had come to his AID. Checking his stats, he found his XI to be quite depleted.
“IT seems as though you’re even worse at babysitting than hunting, Merlin, if that’s at all possible.”
“To give me my DUE, sire, they were as sneaky/spritely as hares in the summer!”
“Well yes, but usually people aren’t so stupid to be convinced to have their charges blindfold them and lead them through a MAZE, Merlin.” Arthur PEERED down at him with good humor.
“Well, at least the rain WASHES off the mud, Merlin.”
“Well, I guess I owe you one,” Merlin conceded. “But to be FAIR, I wasn’t to know that they were Druid children sent to hoodwink the prince’s manservant. Also, let’s go for a JOG - I think you’re getting fat.”
Arthur began to FUME. Merlin allowed himself to be pulled to his feet, stopping a moment to lean against a mossy tree until the RIOT in his head died down. He wistfully rubbed his JAW and said: “I think they went that way. Traces of their QI are strongest in that direction.”
“And I’m sure your senses are completely LEGIT,” Arthur scoffed. “Their LIVES are still ours yet! We’d best be prepared for another run-in with the ring-TOT.”
Merlin noted that the AIR was quickly thickening with the electricity that often preceded magical attacks on his person. He whipped the INK out of his pocket and threw it in the direction of the attackers!
There was a thumping sound and - “Did something just MOO?”

Nightmare Before Christmas (& of course I leave my DVD copy of this at school. Luckily I still have the VHS.)
I think you forgot some very important things Unagi. here is more what your christmas list should look like:
Lord of the Rings Trilogy, extended version of course (this is actually more of a Thanksgiving thing, but often it doesn’t actually get finished over thanksgiving so you have to finish it around christmas)
Bridget Jones’ diary. I do not know why.
Pride and Prejudice BBC version! actually it is always time to be watching it but sometimes people don’t get around to it till christmas. :’>
…John Marcotte wants to put a measure on the ballot next year to ban divorce in California.
The effort is meant to be a satirical statement after California voters outlawed gay marriage in 2008, largely on the argument that a ban is needed to protect the sanctity of traditional marriage. If that’s the case, then Marcotte reasons voters should have no problem banning divorce.
“Since California has decided to protect traditional marriage, I think it would be hypocritical of us not to sacrifice some of our own rights to protect traditional marriage even more,” the 38-year-old married father of two said.
