Arthur loved the feeling of the wind on his face. He urged his horse to go faster until the trees around him became blurry. He felt free.
Legends said the forest was home of magical creatures. As a child, Arthur had believed the stories. Now, I knew they were just made to entertain children though, he couldn't help but feel something special each time he entered the small clearing deep in the woods.
Arthur knew he souldn't be there, that it was forbidden. Though, he could resist the attraction. He remembered when he had promised his father he would not got in the forest and how, the next morning, he broke his pledge.
Arthur finally reached the clearing. Through the trees he could still see the valley and the castle but he felt like he was in another world. A world where he wasn't Crown Prince, where he hadn't any duties.

***
Merlin watched as Arthur entered the woods. The man was Merlin's favourite distraction and more than once, Merlin had tricked him with a sudden gust of wind or a strange fog. Today was different, though.

Merlin knew Arthur wasn't just a funny human. Kilgarrah had told him about the destiny he shared with the man, the Prince. About the ancient wisdom and the bright future for the realm of Albion where the magic people would live in harmony with the men.
Merlin had to know if it was true. He murmured a spell and watched as the man's horse suddenly stopped in his track.
Merlin kept watching Arthur. How he got angry as his horse who refused to move, how he run around, trying to find an escape but finding only invisible walls. If was fun to watch as his behaviour was clearly not appropriate for his rank.
Amused, Merlin tried another trick. He meowled. Arthur turned but didn't see him.
Then Merlin made some pinecones fly around. The man was deft and avoided all the projectiles. Having enough, Merlin stopped and made himself noticeable.

***
Not so far away, Kilgarrah watched as Merlin approached Arthur from behind. It was like seeing the thread of destiny weaving itself. The spirit hoped Merlin wouldn't spoil it, though.

I decided to stop this challenge. It was fun but I prefer to concentrate on the other one!

I've found another interesting writing challenge for September here!

More here )
aeris444: (arthur)
I've found this challenge here.

I hope it will help me write again and more regularly.

aeris444: (arthur)
Here is the last part of this great challenge!

There isn't any deadline so if you want to do it, just go on the communit and give it a try : http://snowflake-challenge.dreamwidth.org


Day 11

In your own space, post a rec for fannish and/or creative resources. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


In the Merlin fandom, the most useful resources, for me are :

Merlin Finders : a great community where you can post your request for rec lists or your search for a specific fic!

Dirty Bookshelves : this tumblr is now closed but it remains a great place for rec lists and lists of fics classified by themes!


Day 12

In your own space, talk about what you bring to fandom. It can be something tangible, or not. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


I don't know how to answer this... I'm not involved in any community as mod or anything like this... I think I do what I can to provide fics that other people enjoy.

I've just "created" the Prompt Donation post on Merlin Writers. Though, at the moment, I don't think it had ended in any fic being written. :(

Day 13

In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

At first, I wanted to talk about a Merlin writer. But ther are so many great ones, I didn't know which one to choose... And I'm also planning on starting reccing Merlin fics...

So, I decided to talke about [livejournal.com profile] sparksfly7 !  She write mostly about football and a south korean pop band I don't know that well!

Her footie fics are just great! She even made me read fics about people and pairings I don't lie! Though, I especially love her Cristiano Ronaldo's fics! She's great at describing people with lots of shades of differences and nothing is balck or white with her what make her fics more realistic!



Day 14

In your own space, post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I'll not do this one as I'm planning to start posting recs this weekend!

Day 15

In your own space, create your own challenge. What’s something you want to see more people doing in fandom? Is there something fun you’ve tried that you think other people would enjoy if they gave it a go? Dare your friends to try it out, and have fun with it. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


As a writer, I love challenge were you have to write 100 drabbles. It's fun playing with the words to achieve your goal!

I'd like to see more challenges were you have to put some words in a drabble. So if anyone wants words, just ask in this post!



THE END
aeris444: (arthur)
Once again, I'm doing a few days in on go!

Day 6

In your own space, create a fanwork. A drabble, a ficlet, a podfic, or an icon, art or meta or a rec list. A picspam. Something. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


I'll pass this one as I already have some hard time writing my work in progress...

Day 7

In your own space, share your love for a trope, cliché, kink, motif, or theme. (More than one is okay, too.) Tell us about it, tell us why you love it, give us some examples and recs. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


That's a hard one because I love a lot of different themes..So I'll try to list them and rec a fic for each!

Mpreg : Caught in a bit of scandal by go_fishboys
Age difference : Chaste by lawgoddess
Pretend relationship : Lord Drake's Bequest by Pennyplainknits
Alpha/Omega : Knot Your Average Fairy Tale by steamyaffair

Day 8

In your own space, create a love meme for yourself. Let people tell you how amazing and awesome and loveable you really are. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. Surf the comments and find people to give love to.


Another hard one...

I think that one of my biggest quality, is that I'm very curious about everything and anything. I love to learn new things and discover new places.

Day 9
In your own space, talk about what surprises you about fandom. It could be a pairing or fandom you never thought you'd like. A fanwork type you never knew existed. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


I think that the most surprising thins in the Merlin fandom is that two years after the end of the series, there are still new fics being wrttent daily! And that's just wonderful!
Day 10

Stretch yourself a little and try something new. Go play in a new fandom or with a new pairing. Try working in a new medium. Or check out some fanworks that are new to you. (The recs from Day 1 might be a good place to start!) Leave a comment in this post saying you did it.


That's interesting but I'm not really in a mood to do it today... We'll see if I do it later.
aeris444: (Default)
I'm a little behind with this challenge, so here are two days at once!

Day Four

Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before or introduce yourself to someone you've interacted with and friend/follow them. Afterwards, leave a comment in this post with the equivalent of "I did it!"

It doesn't have to be anything complex - it can be feedback for a fanwork or discussing something you might have in common or even simply admiring their icon. The point is to reach out to someone you normally wouldn't and connect with them, even if it's only for the briefest moment.


I've commented on a fic on kinkme-merlin

I never comment on kinkme because I don't often read fic there (I'm always afraid they're not going to be finished).

But this one seemed interesting so I gave it a try and now I'm hooked, wainting for the next part! ;-)



Day 5

In your own space, talk about your fannish origin story. How did you come to fandom, why did you choose your fannish name, do you have more than one secret identity? Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


I came into fanfics (and slash) by the Saint Seiya fandom first, as a friend told me about these stories written by fans. It was also the first fandom I've written fics for.

Then, I found a forum where RPF was quite popular and I fell into sport RPF (mostly tennis than some F1 and football).

At first I was only reading and writing in French. Than, as I wanted to read more football fics, I started reading in English... And I tried to write, too. I was also part of a LJ community about slash in F1 for some time.

As for my actual fandom, Merlin, I discovered the series on Tumblr, watched it and saw all this slashiness everywhere!

Regarding my name, it's an alteration of "Aerith" who's a character in the video game Final Fantasy VII. I've always been a fan of these games and I loved the sound of that name. The 444 comes from my birth date.
aeris444: (Default)
Day 3

In your own space, talk about your creative process - from what inspires you to what motivates you to how you manage to break through blocks. Does your process change depending on the type of creating you're doing? Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.



I don't really have a creative process - perhaps it would be easier if I had!
I mostly write during the weekend or on holiday. I often have idea when I can't write like in the shower, on the bus, just before falling asleep. So I always have notepads with me.

Lately, I have a hard time concentrating only on writing so I mostly write a little, do somehting else, than go back to writing. Though, I've also spent hours just writing but it's quite the exception.

I'm also becoming a professionnal of procrastination! I often have tons of idea but no energy to start writing them. So I'm not very good at beating writer's block...

Though, what often push me to write are small challenges or writing with confines (using a prompt, maximum of words, etc...)
aeris444: (Default)
Day 2

In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your wish-list if you feel comfortable doing so. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Check out other people's posts. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.


Navy-Snowflake
1. A photo manip or a fanart of Merlin and Arthur, modern!AU, decorating the Christmas tree with their child.

2. A Colin Morgan/Eoin Macken fic

3. A Merthur mpreg drabble

4. A cute Merthur icon
aeris444: (Default)
Day 1

In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Navy-Snowflake

A way to forget the loss - Football RPF - Multipairing
It was the first fic I wrote in English and posted on A03.


I'm here to stay - Merlin RPF - Colin/Bradley, Colin/Eoin
It's the longest fic I've written. And also, even If I love writing RPF, I'm also a little bit disappointed because I don't get as much kudos and comment than for my other Merlin fics.

Five times Arthur had to find an excuse to see Merlin and one time he didn't - Merlin - Arthur/Merlin
I just love wirting five times fic so I had to include one in this list! I chose this one because it deals with homophobia which is always an interesting subject in fics, I think.
aeris444: (Default)
I've just found about this challeng on [livejournal.com profile] sp_owl journal and it seems really fun! I'll do Day One and Two today!
