No, I'm probably not being very PC under the cut, but I sort of need to get this down.

Yes, again XD

I should have other things to do, but having done my duty and posted prompts/pairings/fandoms for the Porn Battle VII I think I'm allowed.

I came across a few references to there being wank in the Merlin fandom... eh... either I've been completely avoiding anywhere it goes on, or people don't know what real wank is. I mean, after Smallville, SG1 and Torchwood, wank has to be really WANKY for me to count it as such.

And it made me think, I know, I'll try not to hurt myself *g*

What's the nicest fandom you've ever been in and why?
And because it's only fair, what's the worst fandom you've ever been in and why?

My best? Firefly I think. I mean, fandomwise. Everyone I ran into was nice and it seemed the majority could handle about any pairing people could come up with. Of course it might've changed since then. It's been a while.

Worst? Somewhere between SG1 and Smallville. Seriously, people take themselves far too seriously. Oh, and Torchwood? I can't really take anyone seriously in that fandom XD Bunch of wankers, the lot of them.

Hmmmm, actually, the only thing that ever bugs me about the Merlin fandom, and actually, the TW one as well, is when I read fanfic and eventually wonder: "Are we even watching the same show?" But actual wank? Maybe someone opposes the Arthur marries Gwen thing. I think it makes as much sense getting worked up over that as it does to get annoyed that the show doesn't follow the better known versions of the Arthurian legends. The show's more or less an AU of the stories, even though those were re-written over the years, so who's to say what's fannon and cannon? It was prettied up for a more romantic period, adding Lancelot to the mix. So, tell me, does that make the occasional tweak of the legends 'fanfic'?

*ponders with a laugh*

*♥ her cracky fandoms*

Please, don't ever become a place of sanity.

got myself the three new Torchwood novels today... I'm seriously considering skipping any kind of socializing this weekend XD

Amusing sidenote? Almost perfect, the book that genderbends Ianto? Starts with a list like this:

Five Rare Times that Ianto Jones Swears (in no particular order)

Does James Goss, who wrote it, read fanfic? *cracks up*

Link for You might be a fan if... from [livejournal.com profile] riverfox's journal

Read it and laugh your arse off *g*

On another note, I'm making 256px X 256px icons for VISTA -- and I just managed to make the TW logo look good *eg*

Just thought I'd point you in the direction of this lovely Jack manip (torchwood) that [livejournal.com profile] nicci_mac made

Public announcement: The below view is mine, all mine, and no one else's -- feel free to disagree.

How does anyone decide to write a scene where Ianto is hurt and Jack breaks down crying?

*bangs head on table*

I don't just mean a tear or worry or such - nooooooeeeee. See, I could have lived with the occasional tear or worry, even if I don't think it's entirely in character for Jack -- at least not openly -- on his own? Yeah, but he's very carefully guarded most of the time -- as is Ianto. In this story however, it was falling apart, falling into each other's arms, overly emotional dialogue and although the writer had a warning up about 'fluff' -- I'm sorry, that's not fluff -- that's vomit inducing.

On a personal note -- I hate my shoulder -- seriously -- good thing I managed to get an appointment with a physiotherapist tomorrow morning -- I've got tension headache once or twice a day at the moment -- gotta get rid of that.

News: We're getting closer to vacation time now -- which rocks *g*

Flat news: God, I'm too knackered most days to get anything done -- I figure I will eventually, if no later than after my shoulder's back in the game *g*

Remember that slightly garbled (just my point of view) entry I did the other day, trying to put into words how I saw the Jack/Ianto relationship? Well, I came across an entry that was far more structured than what my scattered brain could come up with. Which is why I'm linking to it XD

I could make an entry on this or that, or try to do my 365, but I'm utterly knackered after this weekend's Gospel Festival. I'll try to do an entry on that tomorrow when my brain will, hopefully, be back online XD

I'd like your opinion on -- this was made by [livejournal.com profile] nicci_mac and ppl don't get it... *sad face*

I bloody well like it. I am eventually going to write her beret fic.

[livejournal.com profile] nicci_mac's outdone herself, just look under the cut. The other night she did a cover for Reflection, one of the stories I wrote for the pornbattle, and tonight she did one for Nexus -- just look at the covers under the cut:

You know what I miss in the Torchwood fandom?

Something like we have in DS, like [livejournal.com profile] ds_noticeboard -- something like a tw_noticeboard community. No posting actual fic or some such, just a noticeboard for telling you've got a story up, a vid or something like that. Something with a better layout than [livejournal.com profile] jackxianto which completely fucks up the view in my browser.

This is about the BEST crack EVER. It's Torchwood and Dr. Who in baby versions... no, it's not sugary sweet, it's pure crack!

Onwards with all the warnings of don't drink and read!

Also, this Torchwood fanvid cracks me up

I've been having so much fun this morning, trawling the net for John Barrowman interviews. Right now, my abs are killing me. That man should not be allowed to open his mouth *laughs hysterically*. I was watching an interview on the Charlotte Church Show and I don't think I've laughed this much since Friday night and that doesn't count the same way. Nicci, Skype and wine is a lethal combination anyway ^_~

The interview is divided into three parts on youtube and there's talk of Bunny Rubbers (get the explanation and cringe because of the weirdos who watch the tv shows). There's talk of John's civil union with Scott, what it's like to work in Cardiff, do musicals and meeting the Queen. Also, I thought the most sexy Scottish accent would come from Sean Connery. I was possibly wrong because I'm pretty sure I wet my pants when John started speaking with a Scottish accent. Then again, it might have been the combination of sexy and the outragious stuff he was saying that had me in stitches.

Part 1 - Part 2 - Part 3

Also, the fact that he auditioned for Will and Grace and was turned down with the explanation that he wasn't gay enough had me laughing quite hard.

Why hadn't anyone pointed me in THAT direction earlier?

I still haven't forgiven Nicci for showing me this photo -- it keeps getting me sidetracked ROFL )

I realized today that I'm not multifandom.

I used to be. I was from day one. Got into a few fandoms at once.

Right, so I could be called omnifandom, right? I guess.

Now, I realized it can all be summed up with the fact that I'm a fandom whore...

Man, these are some seriously long days. I get in at work around 8/8,30AM and punch out again around 8PM in the evening. At least we're narly halfway through hell week. We'll be back to normal next week. Well, more or less, there'll still be plenty do do. But we're back to closing the store at 5,15PM instead of 7PM.

So, yay, got great news. I've been hired to stay at the bookstore, so there's no getting rid of me now \O/

On another note. What is it about Torchwood fanfic writer and their bloody WIPs? I keep running into halffinished crap that hasn't been anywhere near a beta and isn't anywhere near finished enough to read, damn it! What? Don't look at me like that. I don't write epic sagas and post them unfinished. I think I did that ONCE and that was a newbie. I'm too much of a control freak to fully share until I'm actually done. No, the NaNo doesn't count. I only post in bits to keep myself going -- if the few who are logged into my nano journal enjoy it, then I'm glad, but it's still just a way of making myself write every day. Even without the comments I'd still post it to a locked journal while I'm working on it. I've become a pissy old fart, haven't I? ROFL

Question of the day, as it was put to me by [livejournal.com profile] nicci_mac: Why I Jack Harkness so beautiful -- I'd have to say, he's not really, but he's hot as hell a flirt to boot.
