hope: Art of a woman writing from tour poster (typety type type)

So. I've pulled out of [livejournal.com profile] merlin_muses - not because I can't write anything, but because the story I started for the prompt has taken on a life of its own. So, rather than trying to rush it and make it fit the prompt, I decided to just let the story take free rein and be what it needs to be and take as long as it needs to take (*sniff* the lil' tyke!).

This also means that I can ramble about it in my journal while I'm writing it (yay!), and also post it when I want it and how I want it, which is exciting, because I think I'll end up including other media in it as well.

So. I am writing a modern AU set in MELBOURNE, supposedly a university AU but so far not much has happened at university (one of the ways I'm departing from the prompt). The 'pairing' is Arthur/Gwen/Morgana/Merlin, and the story is basically about them living in a poly relationship in a sharehouse together.

It is SO FUN to write. So much so that I've written nearly 17,000 words of it, and there's definitely much more to come. It's been a while since I've written actual alternate-universe AU, and characterisation is weird - made weirder still because I'm writing about my home town and stomping grounds, so sometimes the degree to which I'm sinking into autobiography is worrisome.

BUT IT'S STILL FUN! Even though I never thought that flippant idea would require so many words.
