Spanakopita  
It's what's for dinner. Yum! It's currently in the fridge setting, but should be ready to pop in the oven soon.

New default icon! We finally finished watching Merlin, and there was a scene in one of the later eps where Morgana and Uther's cloaks entwine together in the wind, and I just loved it visually. So I attempted to make an icon form the scene. I'm relatively pleased at how it came out.

Speaking of Merlin, Morgana is still by far my favourite character. So far, Merlin and Arthur just haven't grabbed me. But we shall see what next next series brings. Looking forward to it. Anyway, even though I'm not looking to read fic for the show, I was thinking that if I was, I'd be looking for Morgana/Uther or Morgana/Gwen. And then I thought that there probably isn't any Morgana/Uther out there, so I have no need to worry about getting sucked in. BZZZT! Guess what I saw recced on crackvan last week? Uh huh. No, I haven't read it yet. Do not want to be pulled in! We'll see how long I manage to resist [g] Reading fic is the first step on the path to hell. The next is seeking out comms. I will be strong!

I really had intended on writing this weekend, but kept getting distracted. And lots of TV on tonight, so unless I start writing late, I probably won't get to it. I swear I'll finish West if it KILLS ME! It seems to be my bane and it mocks me. Bad fic, no bickie!

Oooooooo, spanakopita!!!!! drools... can I come over????

Fortunately, our Greek Festival is coming up here. That and baklava are going to be the two things that I will break my diet for.

Like the icon :)

I've got a slightly twisted thing for Uther/Morgana, too - and Uther/Nimueh, funnily enough. I even wrote a ficlet for that one.

Yeah.

Twisted.

Have you read this Uther/Morgana fic? :D t'would be my first suggestion.

Edited for broken code!

I haven't read any fic :)

Have tagged it, thanks for the rec!

Mmm! We have similar pitas here, and they can be filled with all sorts of fillings - meat, cheese, potato, pumpkin, spinach, but my favorite is young nettle. Baklava is also often prepared for Eid, which is only eight days away.

I haven't seen Merlin, and my only contact with that universe is Excalibur and Mists of Avalon. I liked Morgana in that book.
Ithithildyn on September 14th, 2009 02:14 am (UTC)
LOOOOVE!! baklava :)

Love your icon! I'm just watching that episode now - seeing the LG is sick, we're having a Merlin marathon.

I read the fic before I saw the series *slaps self*, so am now (surprisingly for me) an Arthur/Merlin shipper.

I have read some Uther/Morgana however :) And here is a rec to tempt you to the dark side :) It's AU and A/M mostly but there is a lovely background U/M I know you'd like...

Here is the link! Defenders of the realm.

That's a lovely icon. Great colors; it looks like a painting.
Ithithildyn on September 14th, 2009 03:24 am (UTC)
Thank you! MP4s don't always give you the best caps, so it gets the creativity going!

Nice icon!
*looking at the DVD with first Merlin season* Guess I really should watch it:).
So far Mary Stewart novels are my favorite Arthur stories, though.

I OD'd on the Arthurian legend during my life. So much so, that I usually stay away from anything that deals with Arthur or Camelot.

But, I really enjoyed the Merlin series.

Even though, I still adore the Mary Stewart novels..
Ithithildyn on September 14th, 2009 08:15 am (UTC)
Thank you :)

Mary Stewart rocks!
Black Rook: booksgrachonok on September 14th, 2009 08:49 am (UTC)
Actually, "The Last Enchanment" was the first book I ever read in English - back then they had published only "The hollow hills" in Russian, so when my classmate's sister brought an English copy from France, I was first in line:)... It took me couple months to read it back then, but it was worth it!

BTW, your M7 fic was being looked for a few days back :)
Black Rook: Ezragrachonok on September 14th, 2009 08:51 am (UTC)
Wow! This completely made my day today, you know:). Thanks for the tip:). Guess I should have more M7 communities on my f-list:).
But, I don't want to be a pie,: merlin luvs arthuridontlikegravy on September 14th, 2009 11:52 am (UTC)
Go on, you know you want to. And then you can create a comm of your own *eg*

I love a bit of Uther/Morgana and Gwen/Morgana, but generally my slash-goggles are reserved for Arthur/Merlin. It's weird because I generally don't read non-canon ships but with Merlin I can't seem to help myself!

ETA: That icon is beautiful :)
