I don't usually do this here in my RL journal, but this fanfic was just too amazing not to share.


* Postremus Regum Britanniae or The End of the World and What Came Next


{by [livejournal.com profile] definewisdom // Prologue + 11 Chapters = ca. 60.000 words}

It starts in present day London a couple of days before the world is ending and tells the story of how all the main Arthurian characters (based on their portrayal in the BBC show Merlin) find together again - with or without memories of their past lives - to save the world.

Wouldn't it be great if kids in kindergarten would hear stories about tough princesses who rescue princes from great danger, or about princes who fall in love with other princes or about growing up with two mums instead of a mum and a dad? Even though lgbt children's books have been around for a while, expecting to find them in a kindergarten's reader's corner still seems a bit too optimistic.

Not so in Norway. The Norwegian Ministry of Children, Equality and Social Inclusion says that children should be taught that having gay and lesbian parents is normal, reports Vårt Land.

A beautiful woman is smoking, her face covered in glittering body paint and illuminated by undulating lights. Who is she?

The first name that you think of will most probably not be Romy Schneider. Excusable, but still wrong as you can see in the embedded clip from the movie L'Enfer.

Lesbetoppen 2010 (Top Lesbians 2010) lists the ten most influential Norwegian lesbians. Each year gaysir.no, a news site and online community for LGBT people in Norway, puts together this list of those out women in their country, who were most prominent in the fight against homophobia (see last year's eurOut report). The majority of the women on this list made an appearance on it in previous years ( 2007, 2008, 2009), but four of them are quite new.

The identities - Vienna's International Queer Film Festival will take place from June 4th - 12th 2009. With more that 60 films screened at three different locations it's not easy to figure out what to watch. Especially since the official program website can not be filtered for lesBian content and that's what I'm sure you're all most curious about! ;)

Ploughing through all those exciting films and compiling them into a readable post turned out to be a lot more work then I expected it to be and so I'm afraid my writeup is a bit late. The festival starts Thursday and ticket presale has already begun some time ago, find out more here.
