Do we think George voted for them?

He was probably miffed there was no E/R

It’s impossible to decided which Athelstan to like best.  Sweet cute innocent fluffy priest boy of season 1, or long-haired bloody hot sexy viking man mess of season 2.

Because on one hand:

THIS MAN FULFILS EACH END OF THE FEMALE BRAIN ATTRACTIVENESS SPECTRUM!

"I want to corrupt that."

"I want to follow that into battle."

Subs make the best doms.

Just sayin’. 

dreamvention asked: Oh, do you think George KNOWS what "Ragnar/Athelstan" really means and what he just retweeted? //D

Given that he’s already been the captain of one of his own ships, I’m pretty sure he does. ;)

Dat fur toss

Poor exhausted baby. Though - if he can’t keep up with Kwenthrith, how is he ever going to have a hope in hell when Ragnar and Athelstan team up against him?

This is one of the things that makes me think he might actually be gay, or at least close to it. I think he slept with her only to cement their alliance, not because he really wanted to.

There are a lot of things about the sex scene that point us to Gay!Ecbert, in my opinion.  Like the dialogue and a bit of cultural coding here and there.  
(I’m not sure if this is the extended version or not but)  The scene begins with Ecbert & Kwenthrith having the sex, Ecbert on top.  Ecbert really starts to reach the edge when Kwenthrith flips him on his back so she’s on top.  As he gets closer to that edge, he starts talking about her fucking dad—-his lines: “I knew you father.  He was a great man, not just, uh, physically courageous, but…” *Kwenthrith bites his finger, both probably fucking annoyed about hearing about her dad in bed, and a total dom* “…a man of fair belief—" two seconds later he comes.  Kwenthrith, hella annoyed now, basically asks if she could fuck Athelstan.  He denies her this saying that Athelstan is "a spiritual man" (man of fair belief)  When Kwenthrith persists, he gets all angsty like: ‘I’m going to bed and I’m going to send in someone else you can have sex with ok??.’  
What this sex scene shows is Ecbert being topped, thinking about a man right before he comes, and then not letting Kwenthrith have sex with a monk whom should really mean nothing to him.  Seriously, like he’s trying to seal this deal with Kwenthrith a princess so he should probably be giving her whatever she wants, but it is somehow reeally important that he protect this one lowly monk’s virtue.  hmmmm.  
And then he walks off all ruffled like: damn first i have to have het sex and now she’s trying to bed my priest? worst night evur
And of course there’s a lot of other great Gay!Ecbert stuff we get to see throughout the show and in the shows’ choice of which scenes got deleted.  
For example: Ecbert’s gay conversation hot tub is as gay as it seems.  Naked men—-very Ancient Greek (gay coding).  
When Ragnar is invited to his hella-gay hot-tub, there’s that whole quiet, unnecessary, undressing scene.  Basically, he’s sexualized in a very interesting way (for a male character)—-not just sexualized, he’s objectified (Like female characters are constantly).  The camera makes him a victim of the “male gaze,” specifically, Ecbert’s gaze. 
And then there’s all Ecbert’s doting on and protecting over Athelstan—-Athelstan who is his connection to the (so much more natural) pagans, his beloved Greeks and Romans.  He tells Athelstan that he is like a kindred spirit and how quickly he’s grown to care for him and shit.  But of all the Ecbert/Athelstan scenes they decide to delete, they delete the one where he comes in to talk to Athelstan, tells him that he hopes one day Athelstan would consider here his home, and then leaves.
We notably haven’t seen Athelstan in the hot tub of gayness because that would, no doubt, be too gay to deny.  
Anyway, sorry I wrote so much and that there are no links but gay! or bi!Ecbert is my headcanon and the show should really step on that because representation, and just give me this gay king this one time please???

All of this.  The fact he has a son is literally the ONLY straight thing we’ve seen of him, that’s it lol.

And that was a duty, a mandatory thing for any man of the period. A king would would require one and would want more than one, just in case. Ecbert has no wife that we’ve seen and that would be thought of as very strange. It would be talked about everywhere, not only Wessex.

Texty’s TV reax: Abridged for Summer Edition

Been too busy lately to do my usual episodic posts, but I must say of the seasons so far:

Teen Wolf: Gets more ridiculous by the second, and Jeff Davis has never met a plot hole he didn’t want to open up into goatse proportions. How fucking many episodes in are we with no explanation of where Danny, Aiden, Ethan or Isaac are? Not even a fucking throwaway line. Jesus. If the show clearly doesn’t care about its characters, how is the audience supposed to?

Korra: Been fun so far, especially without the ridiculous romance nonsense. Though I can’t help thinking that Korrasami is perfect. 

Defiance: Is still a giant, meandering mess, and Jaime Murray is still the biggest reason to keep watching. But she’s also a very, very big reason.

Musketeers: Porn. Beautiful, beautiful porn. Not just Santiago, who makes my jaw ache, but all of them. Also fun to play Spot the People from Other Adrian Hodges Shows. Love the theme, too. 

Longmire: This show always gives me flashbacks to growing up in Northern Nevada—the culture is so damn similar. Was kind of amused to see them skewering the “patriot” dude, though. Bet that pissed off a lot of their core audience. Also kinda breaking my brain to see Graham Greene on both this and Defiance, playing such radically different characters. As always, though, I’m watching primarily for Miz Katee and her tight, tight jeans. Sue me: I’m shallow.

I think people should go vote for Athelnar at the 2014 Slash Madness. Come on, we need to at least make it to round two, guys!

Make this happen, folks!

Some other great pairings there, too, including Peter/Roman and Ollie/Dig.

whoa Cherik is stomping Drarry :o 

Anyway yeeeah let’s get Athelnar advanced to round 2 at least! Doesn’t stand a chance against something like Sterek but whatever, we can beat whoever those other people are (don’t watch Arrow sorry)

Re: Arrow: don’t worry on the Ollie/Roy one. It’s not big at all. Ollie/Diggle is a much bigger deal, but it’s almost always counted as part of the OT3 (Team Arrow); it doesn’t have a big following of its own (sad, IMHO.) It was tough choosing between that one and Roman/Peter, though. :(

About Me

Texty

Writer of dorky fantasy novels.

Singer of classical stuffs.

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.
