It's Funnier in Enochian
It was a quiet Thursday night in Whitman house.  Most of the girls were asleep, save the few unlucky ladies pulling desperate all-nighters.  For once, the group of aforementioned night owls did not include the girl living in room 307.  She was happily curled up on her small bed, fast asleep and dreaming.  The hum of the fluorescent light on her desk probably would have disturbed her rest, had it not been for the figure sitting at said desk on a rainy night.
He had a mission, and he would be damned if some kid was going to get in the way.  Besides, he was almost done.
He leaned back in his chair with a smirk, which only faltered for a second as the air in the room shifted.  The familiar whisper of wings was almost like a shout in the quiet room.  A gentle hand rested on his shoulder.
"Brother, what are you doing?" Castiel gently admonished.
The smirk gave way to an honest smile as Gabriel spun his chair around.

My name is Merlin ... yeah, I wish. It's Karin, but ever since I was small, I have gone by a name pertaining to my latest obsession. Some of my ongoing obsessions include Les Miserables, Lord of the Rings, and age-of-sail stuff generally. (The BBC's Merlin is the latest addition to my collection of obsessions and nicknames) I live on the East Coast of Canada, where I live the glorious life of a student. I do my best to avoid doing too much work while still passing my classes. I've succeeded so far.

I love travel, reading and ... life! Also the arts, but less for the "analyse and study" than for the "pretty." I find it impossible to be academic about art. My schoolbag, at the moment, is home to my stuffed sheep, Scotty (he wears a tartan hat and scarf), and my desk is adorned by a stuffed gargoyle, Aloysius (named in honour of Brideshead Revisited). I am a French major, and I adore sailing, fencing and horseback riding, though that last is a new experience to me, having started lessons this year. In short, I am a trifle obsessive, my friends call me eccentric, and I don't know what my enemies call me.

Current Residence: University (where I spend my time evading work by drawing fanart)
I'm wearing a puffy white shirt, a grey vest, a pair of high boots, black trousers, and a tricolor sash. My barricade boy costume is complete. I've got a mirror in my pocket identifying me as Joly, though I lost the flowy hanky my friend lent to me (I plan to take her out for coffee as an apology. It was a very nice hanky.). And I am about as excited for this evening as a six-year-old. My roommate steadfastly refused to come trick-or-treating in our residence with me, but she was a good sport about helping to decorate. Her one request was that we add a Debussy tombstone to our floor's 'cemetery'. So now we have Debussy, Beethoven and ... Horatio Nelson all buried along our hallway. Who cares that they all came from different places? They are all important enough to be put into our decorations.

Technically, I suppose, Halloween is tomorrow. But the in-residence trickortreating happens tonight, so I took advantage of that to wear my Joly costume all day. It suits me, I think I'll wear it every day. I would, too, if the vest didn't belong to a friend of mine (yes, that same friend who lent me the hanky) and if I had more than one white puffy shirt. My roommate would surely stop speaking to me, but I feel certain I could convince her to forgive me. Recently, I learned that filling someone's room with flowers and inviting them to your place for lunch is the thing to do if you wrong them. Hmm ... I might consider this.

Anyway, happy Halloween to all, and don't get swine flu.

This Muro thing is way too fun. (Was too lazy to hook up my tablet. Does this count as fingerpainting?)

Aww, nice! :D I say it counts as fingerpainting if you used your fingers alone to create it ... this would probably be like semi-fingerpainting or some other vague term like that. ;)

... I kind of want to ruffle his hair and give him a hug. Is that wrong?
silverweasel Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2011
Of course not. I want to ruffle his hair and hug him, too.

Hey there, welcome to dA! :wave: Didn't know you'd established a base here, until I saw your comment on Despard's thread.

I see you've been drawing. Keep it up!
merlinemrys5 Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2009
Hi! Thanks! I hadn't established a base here until ... let's see, day before yesterday I think. You're Abaissé's Cary, right?
DarthFar Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2009
Yup, that be me. :D

Welcome to DA.

You sound interesting - I can't wait to see your art. I think I'll watch you.
merlinemrys5 Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2009
Thank you! I mostly draw fanart for Les Miserables and Brideshead Revisited, but I may branch out eventually. :)
Witch-in-Wellingtons Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2009
Nice - and your first artwork here is of Sebastian. I am not disappointed. :aww:

I'm sorry about your computer not wanting to turn it around. They can be useless machines when they want to be.
merlinemrys5 Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2009
Aw, thanks! I quite like drawing him, though I can never get Aloysius quite right -- teddy bears are hard to draw. Hence, he is featured here alone.

My computer (Clarissa) is a very temperamental machine at the best of times, but recently she has been getting far worse. Every few minutes my Internet windows close, it's quite annoying.
