I'm in the process of coding a whole bunch of crap for [livejournal.com profile] mishaland and it's driving me insane because I hate coding a lot.

On the other hand, fandom has been feeding my geeky soul as of late. (As in, it has been outgeeking itself in a truly medieval fashion that makes me unbelievably happy.) I think everyone should be able to roll about in the glory of these amazing things that make my life better.

First up, [livejournal.com profile] espriete wrote Symbols Upon Symbols. It's Marco Polo/Kublai Khan. Now, I'm writing my thesis about Polo's habits of writing about sexual practices so this makes me super happy, even though it's about a book about Polo, not Polo's writing himself. (Although. It does make me wonder if, after this thesis is well and done, I could write an original piece about Polo running off and having deviant sex himself. It could be fun. And possibly my family would disown me forever.)

Second off, [livejournal.com profile] used_songs has Bright Darkness, a Torchwood fanfic. I'm actually only onto the second chapter of this, but I think [livejournal.com profile] una__sola needs to read this with me and possibly anyone else with a high tolerance for Middle English. Yes, Torchwood fic with Middle English. The casting of Ianto as the bisexual college drop-out who can speak Middle English and loves Chaucer doesn't really hurt me any, either. I don't want to give anything away, but if you can manage Middle English (and I firmly believe that anyone who speaks modern English reasonably well can manage Middle English with minimal effort and the aid of the MED and a quick guide to pronouncing Middle English. A passing knowledge of Monty Python can help as well - it did for me, anyway. FYI, Monty Python's also pretty good for helping remember key points in medieval English history and literature.)

Title: A Fateful Night in 1955
Genre: Gift-Candy-Crack
For: [livejournal.com profile] authenticpoppy
From: [livejournal.com profile] doneril
Summary: This is a fairly cracky fic I wrote for one of my LJ buddies who also noticed the Monty Python reference in HBP. I checked out MP, and if they were wizards, they'd be the generation between the Riddle-McGonagall era and the Marauder-Era (hey, maybe they left some stuff behind that the Marauders picked up on). This is just a random night in 1955, in which John Cleese is a prefect, Terry Gilliam is an ass, and Michael Palin is a lonely second year. Most of it is based directly from the Dead Parrot sketch. Actually, I literally stole most of Terry's lines from that sketch (which was amazingly easy to find online, by the way).
