plot bunnies to be ignored

when writing canon era fic
refer to the culling of the good clean burning candles after feasts and the distribution of the stumps to the servants - perhaps arthur takes to blowing his candles out a bit early so merlin can have them to read by - it never occurs to him that merlin can just make his own light, because although he's put two and two together he has yet to square it again

I think you got it mixed up man. The subject should clearly be ignored and the bunny should obviously be given all of the attention. This is what you really meant, right? I'm right, aren't I?

we'll see. there are a bunch of things that keep churning up in my head but they're all.... idk, disconnected and lacking in plot and stuff.

One-shots? Drabbles? PWP? I just love that idea.

hey man, feel free to yoink it if you like. I wouldn't've posted it if I minded other people possibly stealing it.

I tend to get ideas that are just way too complex and giant to fit into a oneshot, and I despise drabbles. Remember for pthon, how I couldn't keep ANYTHING below 750 words without feeling like I'd cut half the good stuff out of my entry? Imagine that but at least 7 times harder.

There's some kind of semi-gen between-series fic I've got mixing up in my head though, something about Leon and Elyan and the year that went by after Morgana left when the knights took up residence... what made it so Arthur could so openly call Merlin a brave man? You know? I have little flashes of something, here and there, but none of it is glomming together.

If you want to take the candle idea, go for it. I'll just use it too, if I ever decide to write anything. Our styles are so incredibly disparate I'm sure we'll have very different fics.

Hah, this season, dude. It's killing me with plot bunnies. They are everywhere! And I can't really stop to write them, because I am still trying to finish my ginormous fic.
