momo: (Too Busy To FCUK*)
To track my progress for my two most recent recording projects, I figured I'd start two charts :)

The podfic project is a lengthy Merthur fic I'm recording (over 82k, which should be over 10h of podfic in the end) and the other is a children's story for December that I'm recording for my niecelings. Let's see how I'll do, eh?

Also, I'll keep messing with this and adding columns because I'm a big fan of spreadsheets and this is what I do.

Title: Road of Ruins
Author: [personal profile] momo
Artist: [personal profile] whimsycatcher
Pairings/Characters: Merlin/Arthur ; Gwaine/Lancelot/Leon ; other minor pairings
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 72,377

Warnings: All of them. Violence, references to sexual abuse of children/minors/adults, suicidial thoughts (not acted on, not glorified), blood, gore (relatively mild, all things considered), racism, ableism, murder, slavery (incl. sexual slavery)

Disclaimer: Merlin and Arthur are characters of legend and thus free to play with. However, in this particular incarnation, and with this particular supporting cast, they're property of the BBC and Freemantle Media. The concept of Mad Max: Fury Road belongs to its respective writers, producers, directors, etc. I'm playing in these two sandboxes, shamelessly putting all the Merlin characters in the dystopian world of Fury Road. I'm not making any money with this story.

Author's notes: Phew. Another tiny monster for ACBB. I've been thinking about this story for at least a year, and writing it took more than half of one. Fusing characters from one franchise with the plot/setting of another is always a challenge, but given that this is my third (well, sort of fourth, if you count the fairy tale) time doing this, you'd think it'd be easier. It's not XD The cast of characters just sort of kept growing, and with them the plot had to adapt, change, and grow to accommodate all of them. I could've used fewer characters, but then where would the fun be, right? (Note how I'm able to laugh about it now that it's done and I've stopped crying and tearing my hair out...)

I have more stuff to say, including a large host of THANK YOUs in the notes on AO3, so I'll cut it short(ish) now.

Artist's notes: It was beyond fantastic to work alongside Momotastic this year! I couldn’t help but want to prematch after hearing that her concept was inspired by Mad Max: Fury Road! Coincidentally, I had just purchased the concept art book for the film, so I was already inspired by the aesthetics of the setting and characters. Combine that with my Merlin obsession, and I was revving to go! I loved getting to read drafts throughout Momo’s bountiful progress, and I enjoyed the opportunity to provide some input for how the plot developed! I loved that, despite the obvious references to the film, she wrote something very unique to suit this fandom’s beloved characters… Well, early on, there was already so much material for me to get ideas from, and it was super hard to settle on just a few scenes to draw! I initially had a list of 30+ scenes, and it took some help from Momo to really cut that down, ahh… I decided on a style more realistic than I’ve done for previous Big Bangs, so I knew that would take me more time, but I still wanted to do so much! I’m pretty happy I managed 8 illustrated scenes, along with some additional graphics (divider, poster, album) though stay tuned for a couple more scenes that I had sketched out but have to save for later! All my pieces were challenging in their own ways, but I had so much fun with the gritty textures, various palettes… and skin and scruff, galore! ;) I hope everyone enjoys looking at my art as they go through this epic fic!

And as always, many MANY thanks to the mods who keep our fandom alive by running this fest so wonderfully!

❤ Whimsy

Summary:

Emrys, he whose power is greater than any before him, shall return magic to its rightful place. At his side will fight a man born from pain, raised in blood, then cast away. With hair as bright as gold, and an arm like a forged weapon the likes of which haven’t been seen in centuries, the Mother will have a warrior to fight for her life’s blood. Together they shall bring peace and prosperity to Gaia once more.

Arthur has no doubt that he's the Warrior from the prophecy. With the help of Uther's prized wives, he ventures North to find Emrys, and to return magic to the land that his father killed.

Hello, hello, hello!

It’s the COiNELOT people back again to hopefully make your Sunday!

Yes, we* DO want to host a second COiNELOT. And YES, we did decide on a date that’s closeish to the actual ten years anniversary of the show so that anyone not living in Europe might get the chance to go to Pierrefonds AND this con in just one trip.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!

Word Count: 4,327
Pairings: Merlin/Arthur
Spoilers/Warnings: Attempted non-consensual parent/child incest
Author's Note: This is a re-telling of the French fairy tale Peau d'Âne by Charles Perrault. In the original, a King, after he lost his wife to death, seeks to marry his own daughter. Naturally I had to turn it into a Merlin AU.
Summary:

It was not long after the prince’s eighteenth birthday that the king found that his sorrow had lifted, and that, for the first time, he felt light and happy – almost joyful. Since the day his wife had passed, the king, for the first time, thought that he might want to marry again.

Summary:

Following a bad break up, Arthur makes the snap decision to read law at Camelot University, Albion's most prestigious university. He soon finds out that hard work and good intentions mean nothing when everyone thinks you're riding on your daddy's coat tails. Professor Aredian's internship offers Arthur the perfect opportunity to prove once and for all that he's not his father's son, but Arthur quickly realises that there's more at stake than an innocent man's freedom.
In which Arthur is Elle Woods with less fashion merchandise and more sport, and has a half-sister who kicks his butt a lot but actually loves him dearly.

[livejournal.com profile] polomonkey did it, and apparently [livejournal.com profile] merlin_writers inspired it last year, so here we are. Given that I've published a few things this year, I thought this might be fun! I might do an altered version for the podfics I put out last year :D

My stats aren't nearly as impressive as other people's, but here you go. )

Title: Christmas Holidays Aren't What They Used To Be
Author: momotastic

Pairings/characters: Merlin Emrys/Arthur Pendragon, Gwen Smith/Leon Knight, referenced/mentioned/implied/past: Gwaine/Percy, Merlin/Freya, Gwen/Lancelot, Uther/Ygraine, Gaius/Geoffrey
Rating: E
Word Count: ~32.000
Warnings: minor character death (canonical), a bunch of smut inbetween the plot, schmoopiness
Disclaimer: Merlin and Arthur are characters from legends of old and therefore free for anyone to play with. However, in this particular form, the characters resemble BBC's Merlin's cast. I make no money from this, I'm only using them to indulge my need for some Christmas smut and the urge to write all the movie fusions.

Author's notes:

I wrote this in just a few weeks and I'm amazed that I finished it, and that it got so long. I meant to make this a short fic, but apparently I don't do short. *shrugs* I wrote this, in part, for the [livejournal.com profile] merlincarols fest hosted by my friend [livejournal.com profile] gaymerlinhell. The song I claimed is "Child of Love" by Sara Groves. I've included a playlist with the fic, if you're interested in listening to it.

Summary:

Neither Gwen nor Arthur expected to find so much when they switched places for the Christmas holidays. Arthur in a tiny village in Surrey, England, and Gwen in Los Angeles, California each find much more than they bargained for in the two weeks leading up to Christmas. The only problem is: What will they do with what they’ve found once they go back home? [Loosely inspired by The Holiday]

Author's notes:

Wow. This has been a journey. This is the longest thing I've ever written by far, and damn, I'm proud of it. I've left more notes on the AO3 post to say thank you to everyone directly involved, but I quickly want to say that working with Rou as my artist was amazing (thank you for all your support! I still clutch my chest when I re-read your final review).
I'm incredibly happy to finally post this. I hope you'll enjoy this story as much as I (most of the time) enjoyed writing it.

Artist's notes:

First Biiiig Thank you goes to my wonderful author Momo, it's been amazing to see your fic come to life over the past few months and much fun to work for it. You're a true inspiration!!
To my Amazing Grace, who's also a master pic hunter, thank you for having my back once again and again, much of my stuff would never see the light if it wasn't for your support.
Our awesome ACBB mods, k_nightfox and kitty_fic, here's to you! Thank you for everything you do for our beloved fandom and this fanatstic fest ?

Summary:

The first time Arthur meets Merlin, the circumstances are far from ideal: Arthur is desperately trying to fix his marriage to Gwen, while Merlin is still coming to grips with the loss of his husband, Will. They get off to a more than rocky start, but soon Arthur finds out that there is more to romance than sending flowers and pretty verses - and that Merlin knows what these things are. As their friendship grows, Arthur learns not only the ways of courtship, but also that between the two of them, it might be Merlin who needs help more than Arthur does in order to overcome his grief and move on with his life. In the midst of all of this, Arthur realises that he doesn’t want Gwen back after all. He just wants Merlin.
