Wolves inside the bedsprings )

But this woman who could rip a body to shreds is so careful when she has to be. The delicate way her hands move on her clocks, the gentleness of her hand on a scared kid’s shoulder.

He finds himself thinking about her all the time. When he’s making dinner, working a case, jerking off. He thinks about the dark hair on Edie’s legs and wonders about the rest of her. The way that she’d smell between her legs, under her arms. He wants to unbind the braid running down her back like the worst cliche.

She’s let him, he knows. He can tell that she preens under his eyes sometimes, straightening her back and giving him the eye. He doesn’t think she’d make it easy by any means, the wolf in her probably wouldn’t allow that. From anything he’s read about Blutbaden in the journals Blutbad mating is more like a bloodsport than a gentle wooing. Monroe might do the vegetarian version, but she’s still got that wildness to her.

When she’s standing in her kitchen he tries not to think about the fact that she probably has hair on her belly and her thighs. That she would probably like it if he did what he wanted and bit the join of her shoulder and neck, that she might shudder and go still beneath his teeth.

Which is how he finds himself drunk and propping up the bar with Hank while he uses his arms to drunkenly gesture ‘her legs, man, her legs’ while Hank laughs at him, because Hank is a terrible partner.

Or the best: he calls Edie from Nick’s phone while patting him sympathetically on the shoulder. And then what seems like forever and another drink later there she is in her clunky boots and plaid, shaking her head fondly.

Edie helps him up like he weighs nothing and helps him into her car. She’s smiling and in the dim lights that pass he can almost see the glint of her fangs and claws. He feels himself drift as she hums, tapping her fingers on the wheel.

They don’t have sex that night- he’s too drunk to do more than think about it really hard. But she lets his clumsy fingers undo her braid and brush through her hair before bed and when she climbs in beside him he feels the silkiness of her legs (her fur) against his. She was taking a run in the park when Hank called- she smells of pine and loamy soil.

When he kisses her, she only draws a little blood, just so he remembers what she is.

Because 'Every River' just says Esca/Marcus to me.

Partially an excuse to make people listen to Runrig.  This band are in my genes. I remember being held aloft at an outdoor Runrig gig when I was five or six, getting really into it! Plus at every family wedding they always play this version of 'Loch Lomond', because it's five minutes from my house and you can see Ben Lomond from my window, true story.  

I love when I get an excuse to get all teary eyed and nationalist. The Romans never managed to put us down for long, bbs!  They did manage to get up there, but the Emperor kept dying at York. Scottish people are genuinely still proud of the fact that they built walls to keep us in. Or out, whichever way you want to look at it. What do you expect from a country that chose it's national flower based on the fact a Viking once stepped on it?

p.s please do not mention Braveheart to me unless you want a lecture about walls and seige engines. I wish that movie would DIAF.

1. Loch Lomond Live

By yon bonnie banks and by yon bonnie braes,
Where the sun shines on Loch Lomond.
Where me and tea tree my true love spent many day
On the banks of Loch Lomond.

2. Siol Ghoraidh (the geneology of Goraidh)
(English trans.)
Eighteen teams of horses
On the field of Aird a Mhorrain
the young men were ploughing
On the day the Sleat people came
Black was the colour of the blood
That flowed like a flood to the land
The arrow, the long sword
Through the generosity

3.  News From Heaven

By the mountainside, by the ocean blue
Where the struggle broke my heart in two
River of millions flow downstream
A golden highway to the sea of dreams
Morning comes, turn on the light
Deceive the day, delay the night
Ideologies come, ideologies go
A waste of words, and endless flow

4. Skye (live)

How can't you see
The wilderness growing free
Time wounded and scarred
Stroking away the years
It's hard to believe
But memories are old ghosts
Mountains of black and gold
Sunsets falling over the moor
Oh take me there

's na horo eile , horo bho
's na horo bho , hillean o
's na horo eille ho , Take me there !

5.  Rhythm of My Heart

Oh, rhythm of my heart
is beating like a drum
with the words "I Love you"
rolling off my tongue.
No never will I roam,
for I know my place is home.
Where the ocean meets the sky,
I'll be sailing

6. Hearts of Olden Glory

Like wind through your hands
There must be a place
Under the sun
Where hearts of olden glory
Grow young


Word came like a hammer
Night fell down like a shroud
And it's caught me drinking, trying to turn back the clock
Through this industrial ghost town

I've known graft and I've voted well
Trying to keep the Lowlands red
But all I gets control in foreign hands
Other colours instead

8.  Every River

But you came to me like the ways of children
Simple as breathing, easy as air
Now the years hold no fears, like the wind they pass over
Loved, forgiven, washed, saved
Every river I try to cross
Every hill I try to climb
Every ocean I try to swim
Every road I try to find
All the ways of my life
I'd rather be with you

Ugh, Scotland, I will never be able to quit you.

So yeah, there were no trains, and I did not get to go on  my date, which sucked.

But I am going to perform a FANDOM PUBLIC SERVICE, MMMKAY, and tell you to go here and read precisely everything she wrote, ever. I emailed Lemon Drop (the email still works) last year to gush unashamedly about how much some of her stories meant to me and she was lovely and amazing.

If you have the time, over Christmas, please read Distant Journey, Unknown Lands. It is a Sentinel story, though you really don't have to have a great knowledge of the show. It has a beautiful blend of horror and sensuality and sheer connection between two characters.

It remains, along with Torch's Ghosts and  Lovers (which are both X-Files) a story that I read at least once every few months.  They are desert island stories, copies of which are always saved to my hard drive. If they ever disappear from the internet, I will cry. Seriously, like a little bitch.

Dear Internet:

I have a cyst on MY FACE.

Surely this means you can have pity on me  and give me From Beginning to End Thomas/Francisco slash?  WHY IS THERE NONE OF THIS ALREADY. I guess I will just have to write that masturbation fic myself?

*is sad*

p.s I am SO OBSESSED with this video. After watching this, if you do not want hot fic with the adult male leads I WILL BE SHOCKED.

This last week has been sucked up by Mass Effect , a Space Opera RPG for the xbox360. Which, can I just say- I love my xbox. A lot! I used to have playstation 2, but tbh there were never that many games I liked on it.

I also have  a kidney infection again which is RUINING MY LIFE. Well, hyperbole there but it really fucking hurts a lot.

So this week I was a busy girl, organising things and generally trying to keep a 500+attendee event going, and it went off with a bang<3

[ profile] wepretend posted about procrastination and I said 'watch Spanish films!' and she asked for recs. Because I am a firm believer  in good things being shared, I decided to rec them here. With an Italian film, because I am contrary.

Okay, for an in to Spanish films there is Almodovar. I also like his films because he really seems to get a lot of his female characters.  I would start with Live Flesh and All About My Mother. Despite Bad Education starring the dishy Gael Garcia Bernal I actually think it is one of his weaker films.  His female characters always sing better for me than the males, which is why I adored Volver. He isnt the be all and end all of Spanish language cinema, but I do think he makes a good in.

My favourite Italian film is called Pane e Tulipani which has an almost Shirley Valentine-esque feel. But it is feel good and adorable and features one of the best mature romances I've seen on screen. Venice as a character in the story just shines. My Italian is also better than my Spanish, so I can pretty much watch with the subtitles off.  But that and French are the two languages I actually studied so I dont feel so bad. My Spanish is mostly gleaned from living with a girl from Valencia for a while and then knowing enough Italian to understand roughly what is going on.  My written comprehension in all three languages is way better than my spoken:)

Also, also! A Shout of Heavy Guilt was recced over at  [ profile] sawedoff_recs ! About which I was very excited.

So yeah, you know when you have a million and one things to do when you get home from work but cant actually face any of them so you sit on your bum on the internet? That is me right now occasional baleful glares at shit that needs done.

My god, there is not a lot of Jensen/Cougar porn. I  am totally craving an epic sized porntastic badass fic with that pairing but it does not seem to actually EXIST.

New People!

Hi new people!

Since I've come back online a lot of my friends group has changed. I still have some lovely Highlander people (hey [ profile] beej !  hi [ profile] pat_t !) Right on through bandom and beyond.

I used to be methoschick and various other pseuds, having started off on a Richie/Methos yahoo group as GlitterAngel 2 when I was about 14:) 

My ambitions in life are: to be a brilliant cook, to see every Caravaggio on public display, and to meet Peter Wingfield and Callum Keith Rennie, who are my always me+them 4eva. New fandoms come and are awesome, but sometimes I like to kick it old skool with Due South or The Sentinel.  I did anthropology as my degree because of Blair Sandburg, true story.

I live in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire, which is a hole, but it is a hole with train linkage to glasgow so thats not so bad. My best friend just moved to London and I am LONELY HERE. OMG without her.

So that is me, I guess. Please say hola in the comments, friends old and new!
