why so few rathelstan shippers?
why so few?
We’re definitely here! We tag with the ship name Athelnar. :)

Dang, he looks good on his knees.
Ah! This reminds me of my dragon Tanwen (from Harper.) Makes me want to write a short story about her younger years, back when the castles in her homeland were still being used by the Small Creatures.
TBH, I could probably write an entire short-story collection set in that universe, since there are thousands of years of history I could mine, but I suspect my readers would prefer me to finish the sequel, first.
There’s so many amazing, gritty and dramatic films and TV programmes about the Romans, Vikings and Egyptians - when are we going to get amazing ones about the Celts!?
How about a show about the Aztecs? Preferably set long before those pesky Spaniards appeared on the stage…
Or the Inca or Maya. Or maybe indigenous Polynesians. The Maori would be awesome, too.
Though, to avoid things getting caricatured, it would probably be best for the show to be produced by someone with ancestry in that culture. Having already seen what white folks do to ancient North American, African, and Asian cultures, I can’t say as I have high hopes for a white person to do justice to the others. Much as I love DaVinci’s Demons, what it did with its visit to the Inca last season was seriously cringeworthy. Wouldn’t want a repeat of that sort of thing.
and here’sthe finished drawing :)
Hope you like it, starrose17
I LOVE it! I’m seeing this as their last night together before Ragnar leaves to go back home leaving Athelstan in England with King Horik.
Gorgeous. Love it so much.
I doubt anyone here cares much, but I’ve spent much of the last three days uploading hundreds—thousands, actually—of pics to my Shutterfly site.
If anyone is all a-tingle about the idea of seeing pics of my vacations and garden and kid, send me an ask and I’ll drop ya the link.
girls think having a period sucks but try having to fix your penis discreetly through your pocket
having the insides of your organs shed and come out through your genitals does not compare to having displaced balls sorry
none of you can do it discreetly anyways
we see you
everyone sees you

Of course, most men will never know the “joy” of getting a cunt lip trapped between underpants and thigh.
While wearing tight jeans.
And going up stairs.

Can we as a fandom agree on a surname to give Athelstan when writing modern!AU fics? I have several fic ideas but the only off-putting thing is that sometimes in a modern fic you have a character or a situation that needs to refer to Athelstan more formally, and we need a surname. Ragnar is easy because at least we can use Mr Lothbrok for him, even if it is technically a nickname, but Athelstan? What shall we use?
Because Mr Priest sounds stupid.
You could always go with Noble or Stone.
Eeeeh “Athelstan Noble” and “Athelstan Stone” don’t really flow too well… not that I can think of anything better…. Von Lindisfarne? :D
If I ever go anywhere with that rentboy thing I was going to call him Stanley Noble. Perhaps the Old Norse for English or England? Church? Christian? Temple?
How will King Ecbert and King Aelle react to Ragnar becoming a King?
More bathtime politics, I’m guessing.
Ecbert and Ragnar would find common ground as they commonly grind up against Athelstan. And subjected to the trauma King Aelle would go insane and would be declared unfit for ruling, leaving more land for the Ragbert empire.
The Ragbert Empire.
Yes. Here’s a Venn Diagram to shed some light on the theory:
LMAO! That’s so accurate it’s scary.
Is that… is that even healthy?
There are sea organisms and fungi which glow in the dark and there’s fireflies and jellyfish which glow in the dark. It doesn’t do them any harm nor does it do the people around them any harm. I would say its pretty healthy, as well as it would mean more photosynthesis happening in cities which mean cleaner air.
I was just curious about how they were doing it and for some reason I didn’t think to click the link. But thanks! It makes more sense now. I was afraid it was some kind of chemical thing.
nah just genetic modification using existing bioluminescent genes. Genetics is really cool, and so is bioluminescence. I mean they’ve already made pigs glow using jellyfish genes and pigs are waaay more complicated than trees iirc. So they’re actually (i think) less likely to muck it up with trees.
In which case

Shameless fanthing.Queer/Genderqueer. Feminist. Progressive. Gen X. Northwest snob. Journalist and media-deconstruction nerd. Happily married and an adoptive parent of a most excellent little boy. Endless pontificator on topics both sublime and ridiculous. Expect both breathless pop-culture squee and wordy rageflails about social justice.
My "home" fandom is Primeval, but these days I'm most heavily into Vikings, Game of Thrones and Arrow. Check my fandoms masterlist to see the other stuff I usually post about. If it has a kickass chick, a charming rogue, and/or an adorkable nerd in it, I probably like it.
I'm an incurable OT3 shipper, particularly of the alpha male/beta male/alpha female flavor, but I ship some pairs, too (het, slash and femslash.) See my ship list for details.
I don't have much time to make fanworks these days, but I have a few fics up on AO3 and some vids on YouTube (under Talea100.)
Fun fact: I had crushes on both C-3P0 and Data.
