Title: Cry Havoc
Author: [ profile] k_nightfox
Artist: [ profile] altocello
Pairings/characters: Arthur/Merlin, also featuring Gaius, Kanen, multiple minor OC's and a few walk-throughs by Uther (Big apologies but the girls just didn't fit in this one.Despite the fact that I would have loved to have both of them, there just wasn't a way to work them into any significant roles)
Rating: NC-17
Word Count:~81k
Warnings/Content: Graphic Violence, Graphic Rape, Child Abuse/Molestation, Slavery, Angst, Fluff, Magic Suppression, Film Fusion, Canon AU, Romance, Bottoming from the Top, Rimming, Oral Sex, Fingerfucking

Summary: Enslaved by Kanen since childhood, Merlin has been raised to believe his collar is all that keeps him in check. That it is the line between the beast that bites and the dog that obeys…but either way, he's still an animal. Then one day Kanen's gang is ambushed and in the ensuing confusion, Merlin escapes and flees to Camelot where he attempts to start a new life. However, his old master isn’t about to let him go without a fight.

Author's notes: This fic was inspired by THIS prompt at KMM and is loosely inspired by the film "Unleashed"

Sweet Jeebus, where do I begin? I think I shall begin with three incredible people, without whom this fic WOULD NOT exist, and without whom I'd have probably given up on writing altogether. [ profile] rocknvaughn Incomparable Super-Beta who has been with me since before [ profile] paperlegends was even a blip on the radar and who stayed with me for every shaky step of the journey (and if you find this fic at all readable it's entirely due to her efforts). [ profile] altocello Artist Extraordinaire who believed in me before I even had the tiniest nibble from a plotbunny for this beast and who provided me with inspiration, insight, ideas and of course the most AMAZING FUCKING ART EVER. And last but not least, [ profile] amphigoury Cheerleader Supreme and Enabler Extreme who provided me with the prompt, goaded me into writing this story bigger, bolder and that-much-more graphic whenever I was feeling timid and who gleefully read along providing wonderful insight and serving as an amazing sounding board whenever I was stuck.

To the entire PL Chat Gang, thank you for the endless support, friendship, laughter, conversation and REFUGE. I LOVE YOU GUYS!

My heartfelt thanks and sincere congratulations to [ profile] the_muppet for FOUR YEARS of the Most Amazing BigBang hosted on LiveJournal!! Thank you so so so much for your unconditional support and unfailing patience with not only me but also everyone else who participated in this challenge. You are the most wonderful person and I feel privileged just to walk the surface of the same planet you do <3

Artist's notes: [ profile] altocello would love for you to go read the notes in her space <3

I mentioned in a previous post the possibility of creating a fannish shirt. After discussing it a bit and playing around with ideas, Nic came up with an idea for an original design that is really fucking gorgeous, if I do say so myself. He's not fannish at all and will be buying one of the shirts for himself because he likes the design so much, and I will be buying one for mostly fannish reasons. The beauty of it is that it's really its own concept but it still can be interpreted fannishly.

We also discovered that we could roll different shirt styles and brands into the same goal, which is awesome. That means we can satisfy people who want the girly cut shirts, people who want larger sizes, and people who want to tell American Apparel to suck it (though the red is a bit darker because Hanes doesn't have the same color selection). Because there's a limit of five products that can be part of the same campaign, we were only able to offer alternate colors in the American Apparel shirts.

Yammering aside, I unveil to you The Bandit King, a T-shirt you will never have to explain away, because the non-fannish concept is provided for you in the title.

Order One Now!

If you have any questions, let me know!

And please share this post or the link to the shirt with those who may be interested!

Please share this post if you're the type of person who shares posts.

As lots of you know, Knerkle does a significant amount of design work. He recently bought a crowdsourced T-shirt and loved the experience so much, he wants to make one of his own. We thought it would be a great opportunity to have an experienced T-shirt designer make subtle shipping shirts. So many shipping shirts are either really blatant (which embarrasses a lot of people) or are just poor quality (either in design or in construction).

Nic is thinking the T-shirts would probably end up around $18, which is more than I pay for my flimsy Target T-shirts, so I know that's a scary price tag, but they'd be lady-cut American Apparel T-shirts, which are usually $20-$25 plain, because they're ridiculously comfortable and durable. And they do real silkscreening, so you are paying for a quality product.

So basically, I'm trying to figure out how many people would be interested. This website is like Kickstarter in that people will only be charged/the shirts will only be made if a certain number are sold, so it doesn't make sense to go to the work of designing the shirts if there won't be enough interest to get them made.

This isn't a thing Nic is doing to make money. The most he'd make is probably $25, and he charges at least $80 an hour when he bills for design work. He's just excited about doing the crowdsource thing, and this is a great way to both satisfy his curiosity and bring extra joy to fannish people's lives.

TELL ME YOUR THOUGHTS! Concerns, suggestions, and enthusiasm welcome!

If this is a success and a good experience, there is a possibility of branching out into other fandoms/ships/whatever.

ETA: So lots of you are pissed about using American Apparel T-shirts, which I understand in theory, because misogyny and douchebaggery is not okay. In practice, however, printing on guilt-free textiles is not accessible. The only other options for shirts on Teespring are made using slave labor, or the next closest thing. American Apparel, while still full of ethical issues, at least pays their workers, and the product is much better. So I mean, go with your conscience, but Hanes is not an ethical upgrade.

Please Comment at [ profile] teprometo's original post so she can gauge interest in the project! Thank you!

*sigh* I hate when I get "removed" from someone's friends list for no reason I'm aware of. I mean, if it's someone I don't really talk to or our fandoms are no longer in sync, well, that I could at least understand. But when that's not the case...

Ah well. No one can be universally well liked, right?

Fangirl Isnt' A Dirty Word by Deborah Stanish

Thanks to [ profile] issy5209 for pointing this article out!

I am quite happy to identify as a "fangirl" even if I technically left my girlhood long ago. And while I do roll my eyes a bit at the public behavior of some fangirls (harassing actors in their private lives is just not cool) by and large, most of the fangirls I know are seriously cool people and I am proud to call myself one of them.

So, I joined this thing. I'm always making icons and I thought, what the heck? Why not join an icontest community where I get to make pretty mini-pics of BRADLEY JAMES!! Seems a good use of my non-writing time, right?

OK, so now that I joined, I need a bit of help from my flist! Obviously, I can't tell you which icons are mine, but if you could GO HERE and VOTE I'd be very, very appreciative <3

It'll only take a few seconds...please?

Hello my lovely FList!! Just want to give everyone a heads up that I will be gone from now until July 6 or 7. I will have some internet access (if all things go to plan) but I will be VERY busy doing vacationy things :D Long and short, you may see me pop up here or there but for the most part, I will be incommunicado. I've turned off my email alerts because if I don't I will be buried under a mountain of email on my return!

So, I love you guys and I will talk to you when I get back!!
