Summary: Morgana and her new ally attack Camelot. Merlin disappears, Camelot is overrun. Young King Arthur is left to struggle and fight for what is left of his kingdom. Set post-Wicked Day, but includes Lancelot, who will be resurrected on screen as well, I'm sure of it.


Here you go; hope you're still here and enjoying the ride!

I'm trying myself by writing something longer than two or three pages. Don't think I've ever done that before... Anyway, here is part 1, tell me what you think! Do you want me to post the rest?

Cheers!

Oh, and btw, I'm in need of a beta who would check the few fics that I do post for stuff like awkward wording (since English is not my native language), funny dialog and that kind of stuff. Any volunteers?

Originally posted by gabrielleabelle at Mississippi Personhood Amendment
Okay, so I don't usually do this, but this is an issue near and dear to me and this is getting very little no attention in the mainstream media.

Mississippi is voting on November 8th on whether to pass Amendment 26, the "Personhood Amendment". This amendment would grant fertilized eggs and fetuses personhood status.

Putting aside the contentious issue of abortion, this would effectively outlaw birth control and criminalize women who have miscarriages. This is not a good thing.

Jackson Women's Health Organization is the only place women can get abortions in the entire state, and they are trying to launch a grassroots movement against this amendment. This doesn't just apply to Mississippi, though, as Personhood USA, the group that introduced this amendment, is trying to introduce identical amendments in all 50 states.

What's more, in Mississippi, this amendment is expected to pass. It even has Mississippi Democrats, including the Attorney General, Jim Hood, backing it.

The reason I'm posting this here is because I made a meager donation to the Jackson Women's Health Organization this morning, and I received a personal email back hours later - on a Sunday - thanking me and noting that I'm one of the first "outside" people to contribute.

So if you sometimes pass on political action because you figure that enough other people will do something to make a difference, make an exception on this one. My RSS reader is near silent on this amendment. I only found out about it through a feminist blog. The mainstream media is not reporting on it.

If there is ever a time to donate or send a letter in protest, this would be it.

What to do?

- Read up on it. Wake Up, Mississippi is the home of the grassroots effort to fight this amendment. Daily Kos also has a thorough story on it.

- If you can afford it, you can donate at the site's link.

- You can contact the Democratic National Committee to see why more of our representatives aren't speaking out against this.

- Like this Facebook page to help spread awareness.

I have just a few close friends. It has always been that way for me. Just one or two people whom I'd value beyond all others, then a couple more I liked spending time with. Apart from that, only people I considered acquaintances, nothing more. Lately, the last couple of months, my group of friends has changed. Currently, all of my close friends are gay, God knows what that says about me. Anyway, they're special, every one of them a very distinct personality. Which is good, I guess. But the more I get to know them, the more horrified I get.

You know how you hear about child abuse? Horrible stories on the news or on the internet about children getting molested, parents beating their kids and that sort of thing. It troubles me to realize how closely affected I am by such stories.

Story of a close friend of mineCollapse )



Above all, I feel so lucky and grateful. In comparison, my family is perfect. And that's just completely random luck. It could have been me.

Ehehehe, I just wanted to share with you guys how much I enjoyed yesterday's True Blood episode. At least the first half, didn't care for the second half that much, though it was not bad, per se. Just okay, nothing more.

 

But dorky amnesia!Eric is just so epic xD seriously, I giggled like a stupid teenager. But then, I am a stupid teenager... Though the teenager part will change in 4 months. Anyway, I never realised how good an actor Alexander Skarsgard was. Usually, I was too busy admiring the perfection that is his body and enjoying his character Eric to realise that the acting in itself is really good, as well. I guess now that he really has to use it to portray Eric in a very different way from the one we know, it just shows. And I'm glad it does.

I am probably going to fail the rest of my exams this terms. Or at least two of the three.

That is all.
