Please support the OTW! Because we need --
We need our own archive-of-record, where everyone can back up their work no matter what other services they use, so fanworks don't vanish and recs don't go stale.
We need to preserve our own history and our own meta, because if we don't care enough, no one else is going to think it matters, and we'll have to watch ourselves get written out of the picture, or else written in unrecognizably.
To host these things, we need to own our own infrastructure, so someone else has to fight to make us take it down, instead of us having to fight to make them put it back up.
And to build and own all of this, we need an organization that can marshal our resources as a group, that asks us to all give our time and chip in a little, as and when we can, instead of being dependent on the superhuman efforts of one or two people who will inevitably get busy or sick or tired or bored. We need an organization that is not about making a profit, which is stable enough to get things done but still responsive to our community.
We need the OTW. Please check out all the awesome projects, and consider kicking in a little to help. Becoming a member is only ten bucks US!
And please consider passing on the word! (Look, we has many LOLcats!)
Okay -- so there you have my schpiel, and now here is candy! *grins*

Merlin/Arthur, explicit and frequently (and if not more so it is not julad's fault either! :P)
Excerpt: Arthur tipped back against the wall, his mouth open for breath and staring at the small arrow-slit window over Merlin's head, trying to work out how it could possibly be that good with Merlin, of all people.

Many many ♥ to julad and Mia and Terri and Dira and Ces for beta!
All fb loved as always!
(PS: speaking of fb, I am in fact thinking about a director's cut of Room 20, but uh, it is looking about 60,000 words long, so that might be a while coming. Um. sorry? :> )
