The Internet is a Lie

Therefore, I am shamelessly tagging onto the town library's wireless. Events so far: multiple awkward staring contests with grandparents, fruitless searching for Help Wanted signs, stilted phone conversation with Field Station Lady (I hate phones), really short haircut (my hair is so curly it looks like it has a life of its own; I am not fully convinced that it is not sentient). Also, a lot of desperate book reading to avoid the aforementioned awkward staring contests with grandparents.

In other news, have a ficlet.

Title: Bask
Author: craevn
Fandom: Torchwood
Characters: Ianto, Team
Rating: PG
Spoilers: None
Summary: Tosh and Owen were having the old ‘Praxian vs. Telik’ argument.
Author’s notes: Based on a line from Fragments.

I'm trying to get into the habit of writing regularly, but it's not quite happing. In any case, I have another fic in the works at ~3200 words. A question for anybody who might actually be reading this - how necessary do you consider Brit-picking and/or beta-ing?

List 10 fictional characters you wouldn't kick out of bed (in no particular order) and tag five people to do the same.

1. Jack Harkness (Torchwood) - He's got hundreds of years of experience under his belt, he'd better be damn good.
2. Kara Thrace (Battlestar Galactica) - Gorgeous, intense, and playful. It'd be a ton of fun.
3. Ianto Jones (Torchwood) - Again, gorgeous. Also smart, often overlooked and with hidden depths. But it's also partly curiosity. What would he be like in bed?
4. Greg Sanders (CSI) - Goofy and fun!
5. Rodney McKay (Stargate Atlantis) - Super smart, with an intense focus. (Of course, fandom's interpretation has ruined me for his canon characterization.)
6. Felix Gaeta (Battlestar Galactica) - Smart, loyal, hard-working. Of course, the fact that he's been put through the emotional and physical wringer a few times helps. It's always the woobies with me.
7. Toshiko Sato (Torchwood) - She reminds me a lot of myself, in some ways. And I love her voice.
8. Spencer Reid (Criminal Minds) - Incredibly intelligent (what is it with the smart ones?), charmingly awkward, good-hearted. (Also, another woobie.)
9. Penelope Garcia (Criminal Minds) - Fun, witty, smart, goofy, gorgeous, pretty much just awesome in every way.
10. Ronon Dex (Stargate Atlantis) - Hot as hell with a hidden sense of humour.

I'd put Roslin up there, too, but I think if I actually met her in real life I'd be way too intimidated to get her in bed in the first place. Besides, Adama would kill me.

I tag ohsosoviet, lorannah, sardonicsmiley, antelope_writes, and kissofshame. If you guys feel like it.

Torchwood Finale

Oh, my heart.

Torchwood Vid Recs

Whew, it's been a busy few days, but I've finally gotten a chance to write up my Torchwood vid recs list. First, a note: I do not watch videos on Youtube or Imeem. I love being able to watch vids that high in quality, and that I don't have to go searching for. Thus, the recs list below applies only to vids that have a download link (though most have Youtube or Imeem links as well).

Hope these recs have helped you all find some great new Torchwood vids to watch!


The Epic Tale of Rodney & John, Two Girl Scout Cookies in Love
by bitter_crimson

I don't even read SGA fics anymore, but I stumbled upon this and it made me laugh so hard. Even if you don't watch Stargate Atlantis, I think it'll be funny. The best part is about halfway down, where Samao!Rodney and ThinMint!John have sex with the aid of a mini marshmallow. (Though be warned - it is image heavy.)

Torchwood Fic Recs

Keep in mind that the fics listed below come directly from my "I want to re-read this over and over again" document, and as such they only have the most rudimentary of summaries and I give no explanation for why I enjoyed them. Nevertheless, I hope it will help anyone who's new to the fandom, or just hasn't found everything that's out there yet.

A Torchwood vid recs post will be up soon!

some Ianto thoughts (the best kind)

I've been thinking a lot about Fragments (2.12), in particular Ianto's scenes.

If you have any thoughts, feel free to comment! I'm pretty new around here, so I don't have much yet, but fic and a vid will be up soon! I hope.

ETA: Um, if there's anything weird about the layout, try to ignore it for now. It's a work in progress.

First Post

Hello, and welcome to my journal!

This journal will predominantly be used for posting fannish writing and speculation. For the moment, however, I'm still playing around with the layout.

Not much to say for now, really. Over and out.
