Today, I have
-helped resurrect Rodnay Shepard for use in Mass Effect 2, and holy crap it is beautiful. After school productivity is going to suffer enormously, because that is a game that must be played. (And must be played again, male, in order that we may romance Tali. Because, yes. Yes yes yes.)
-finished watching Merlin S1, now that S2 has already completely played out in the UK. This originally felt very lazy of me, but then I realized that torrents are going to be out by now.
-picked up a fake British accent from watching too much Merlin and reading too much Good Omens/ Merlin/ Harry Potter fic. :shrug:
-drove a frozen car (to the point where I could hear the creaking of the ice as I went around turns, yay!)
-accidentally tore the rubber thing that goes in between the bottom of the door and the part where it hits the body of the car because the car was frozen.
-didn't, in fact, pay off my rapidly mounting library fines. One day they'll let me check books out again. :(
-gotten Lady GaGa stuck in my head multiple times, I think I should just disinherit any claims to musical snobbery and admit that I like her.
-received my MGS fanbook thank you KA!! heeee <3 <3 <3

Is it totally weird to think "I should go read some Arthurian myth now because I never liked it and maybe Merlin changed my opinion" and then say, "oh no, I couldn't, spoilers!!1!" ? Because all signs point to yes. |D even more hilariously is that none of this has stopped me from reading any and all fic for the series after being two episodes in something like 7 months ago. But I just need to know if Uther/Morgana was ever canon.

Oh, you.

Oh, YOU.

I can summarize Arthurian myth for you, if you don't actually feel like reading it. I haven't watched Merlin, but from vague internet research I feel like the show is barely clinging to the letter of the law as far as that goes, let alone the spirit, so it shouldn't matter yet.

XD I mean, I don't really want the summary of canon.. and I use that loosely, as I think "canon" for myths tend to sway alarmingly, like storytellers with a bit too much to drink-- I'm just primarily interested if I can interest myself in reading all of those stories by all of those writers I admire that I always got bored with and threw away (except for Avalon High by Meg Cabot, with whom I have a bit of a hate-grudging-liking relationship with, but mostly hate) and "The Lady of Shalott." I.. actually doubt this a great deal, though I think I'm going to go look for those Merlin books I read as a kid and see if I can be more interested in them now that I'm not in second and third grade. XD

Ivanhoe? :wiki's: ...I also never cared for Robin Hood, and even "The Outlaws of Sherwood" could only hold my attention once. Eh, I dunno, you'd think these'd be right up my alley, but :shrug:
