Okay, I'm majorly pissed at LJ for the whole Facebook Connect thing - even with my added CSS - as well as the added features to the 'Share This!' link that they hadn't announced. In a massive diva strop, I'm considering importing my journal to Dreamwidth and doing everything there, then posting links to those entries here. Not sure yet, though ...

Anyway, if you're reading this, it's probably come up on your email or RSS feed, so you're probably the people I need to warn most. I've got my posting date for my Torchwood Big Bang fic, and as mine is a two-parter I'll be posting the entire thing on two particular days: the first half on the 27th September, and the second on the 12th of October.

If you've found this on your Friends' Page, this probably won't be a problem, but even if I backdate the entries I know the RSS feed still puts up a notification, and I'm only guessing it works the same notification system for the 'Track' options and will send an email. Anyways, I'm just forewarning you!

So yes, despite my appalling update record recently, I have been a busy bumble bee. As well as chapters of 'To Another', 'Silver Service', 'SilverFish' and my Dibley fic, I've been beavering away at Tw Big Bang (now on over 60k ... oops), my ongoing project for my darker journal,[livejournal.com profile] damaged_silver, another project I started (bad, BAD SILVER!) that is nearly complete for this journal ... as well as Round 3 of Reel Torchwood, which is at about 15k for the moment. I'm also working on something rather exciting with [livejournal.com profile] holyfrell.

So while it has been criminally quiet around here, come the end of September, I'm going to drown you.

Also, with the claiming post going up today, I can reveal that my Reel Torchwood film is ...

*drum roll* *drum roll* *drum roll* *drum roll* *drum roll* *drum roll* *drum roll* *drum roll*


Frick me, do I love dinosaurs! XD

It will feature artwork by [livejournal.com profile] kholran, who did the wonderful drawings on my User Profile, as well as the classic Janto in the Bath from the second part of my fic, Friendship. If anyone else wants to do any art or anything, feel free! ;)

I strongly suggest you check out [livejournal.com profile] reel_torchwood and see what prompts are being claimed - or even take part in the challenge yourselves! Signups close on the 25th September.

Anyhoo, I have writage to do. Things are a little slow muse-wise at the moment, but we shall solider on.

Much love,



EDIT: [livejournal.com profile] dr_is_in has FOUR invite codes available for Dreamwidth. If you want to set up an account there, you need an invite code and they have kindly offered theirs. I've put in a request for some invite codes too, but they are TBC.

Let [livejournal.com profile] dr_is_in know if you want a code ♥

I've been very bad with commenting lately, but I love your work and I'm really looking forward to seeing your take on Jurassic Park. And there's more Dibley? ♥ ♥ ♥

I've already tweeted this to you, but I would really miss you if you went to Dreamwidth. From a purely personal point of view, I can't get on with it, and I would miss you terribly from here!

And on a related note: New fics! AWESOME!!!!! *bows to your brilliance*

I do feel a lot more 'community spirit' here on LJ, but what LJ have done is almost completely removed the ability to control my information and my privacy. Sure, my journal isn't locked, and sure, people can copy and paste.

But when usernames become involved with real names and there's no control over it ... well, I'm not comfortable with that.

I would be very sad to leave LJ, though. I'm not going to up and leave just yet, methinks - we'll see what LJ do about this entire situation first.

With you possibly going to Dreamwidth too, now I'm very happy that I created an account over there. No Silver Fic would be like... total hell. :(

But OMG! September and October look like awesome months for fics! YAY!!!! :D

hehe Awesome pick for Reel_TW! :D

LJ is removing the ability to crosspost locked journal entries at the next code push (in about 2 weeks).

And I've signed up for [livejournal.com profile] reel_torchwood. I've not written TW fic in almost 2 years, but since I've been doing True Blood RP, my creative muses seem to be back so I am going to give it a shot. I chose Stephen King's "The Mist".

I don't lock my journal entries on this journal, so it doesn't matter if they remove the ability to crosspost using the Connect - even if I did lock them, the unannounced additions to the 'Share This!' feature still allows it. I nor others don't even have to be signed in to crosspost my stuff to several different sites - including Facebook - and there's no way I can opt out of that.

LiveJournal and Facebook are two parts of my world that I wish to never, ever meet, and I used to have control of that.

On a very different note: OOoooooooooooooo THE MIST!!!!! *flails* I really, really hope you get it done! Creative muses are total biatches, and if I could sue them for dissertion, I would! /)>.<(\

Best of luck to ye - and your muses.

Do you have a Dreamwidth account? If not, I have 4 codes available. Or if you know of anyone else who wants them, let me know.

I do have a Dreamwidth account, under the same username I have here. It's only tentatively set up at the moment, so there's nothing there other than a bit of a layout tweak ^_^.

I don't know of anyone as yet who might want a code, but if you like I could edit the entry asking if anyone wants?

Sure! I have 4 codes available.

And I'm the same name over there that I am on here.

GAH! I know how I want to write this damn story...but its starting it thats making me insane. The opening scene sets the tone for the whole thing and I can't get it how I want it to sound.

I hate opening scenes ¬_¬

If you would like any help, even just a sounding board, let me know. We could play 'You show you mine and I'll show you yours' XD

I might have enough to show in a few days if my muse cooperates. Shes currently dancing behind me mockingly and sticking her tongue out.

From: [identity profile] a-silver-story.livejournal.com
She must be related to mine - mine is oh so fond of doing that ¬_¬.

I should be writing post-able fic, or maybe even my big bang ... but no, she's dancing around me trying to make me write about dinosaurs ... and when I try to write about what she wants me to, she disappears and I'm left staring at the page wondering how words work.

It's terrifically unfair :(

From: [identity profile] dr-is-in.livejournal.com
And you have so many fics going at once (which I do read, even if I don't comment)...I could never do it. I'd go insane.

From: [identity profile] a-silver-story.livejournal.com
I've already gone insane. I have no idea how I manage to keep track of it all - even coming back to stuff I did ages ago, I can remember what I was thinking and everything that was going on when I wrote it. Maybe I have a specially compartmentalised brain ...

I know whose fault it really is, though.

*shakes fist* BARROWNOM!

Damn you and GDL for being so hawt :(

You need to join True Blood fandom so you can write me hot Jessica/Hoyt fic. *points at her icon*

I love the True Blood books, but I just can't take the series seriously. The accent just makes me giggle, which is incredibly immature and probably a little bit racist, but that's the truth of it.

If you said to me 'Southern American Vampire', I'd think 'From the makers of 'Scary Movie', by any chance?'.

At least with the books I can pick their accents XD

LOL The show is such crack but I've fallen in love with Jessica/Hoyt....I am at the point I want the show to hurry up and get to the scenes with them in it.

I've found myself embroiled in Merlin, yet again. Gawd ... those two are SO doing it. Damn it being for children and no chance of man shagginz :(

At least we get to see our quota of shirtless!Arthur in his bedroom with Merlin each episode.

N/B: Merlin has a curiously high number of scenes in which Merlin is required to hide under other peoples' beds. Especially Arthur's.

Hmmmm ...

"All you have to do is wipe it! - now, let me show you how the bucket works ..."


I refuse to be satisfied until Arthur is forced to give Merlin the a Jack Harkness-esque Kiss of Life.

I'm the same username too - it makes it so much easier, doesn't it? Even my email is a_silver_story ... If it wasn't, I'd forget it, most likely!

Mmmm nom nom nom. Now I'm all like 'Hmmm a Merlin fic could be fun ...' 'cause ... y'know ... I don't have enough to get writing at the moment ...

From: [identity profile] syikana.livejournal.com
I know I was just browsing the list spotted Abba: The Movie but then realised Mamma Mia would be so much more fun and crack XD

Then Men in Black popped into my head going so much like Torchwood you'll be sin not to write me! So there we go :-D

I was hoping to snag Titanic, but that went this round :(

I've claimed the entire Jurassic Park franchise instead XD

Dammit, Men in Black would be such a brilliant idea XD

Though ... I might claim Pirates of the Caribbean for the LULZ

From: [identity profile] syikana.livejournal.com
Hehe I'd actually been thinking about Doing a Men In Black 1+2/Torchwood theme a while back and then never wrote it down so going to attempt it this time round.

I was actually surprised it wasn't on the list already to be honest :-)

Date: 2010-09-12 02:54 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] a-silver-story.livejournal.com
Dammit! Pirates is taken XD

I was rather surprised Jurassic Park wasn't on the list either, but I suppose it's just what you can think of when you can think of it.

I'm grateful none of them were on the list - someone else might have stolen them!

Aw... but yay for seeing how it will work out? :D

This is true. Now to decide whether or not Ianto would be better as Donna or Sam... same with Jack :D (I have my other two fathers sorted XD)

Date: 2010-09-12 03:37 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] a-silver-story.livejournal.com
hahahaha! How have you cast the rest?

I would have played it with Ianto as Sophie, played up Skye's part to have Jack in it more, then had Gwen as Donna with Owen, Rhys and Andy fighting over her.

Date: 2010-09-12 03:53 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] syikana.livejournal.com
So far it's looking like:

Alice- Sophie
Jack- Donna
Sam- Ianto
Bill- The Doctor
Harry- John Hart
Gwen- Ali
Tosh- Lisa
Martha- Tanya
Rose- Rosie
Owen- Skye (I think? or maybe Andy)
Mickey- Pepper

Date: 2010-09-12 09:51 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] a-silver-story.livejournal.com
Awww Alice/Andy would be SO CUTE! *pats Andy*

Eeeeeee I can't wait to read itttttttt!

Date: 2010-09-13 07:40 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] syikana.livejournal.com
hehe I think I'm warming to the idea but I want Owen in there as well so I'm thinking nowww..

Alice: Sophie
Ianto: Donna
Jack: Sam
Owen: Bill
John: Henry
Tosh: Rosie
Rose: Lisa
Martha: Ali
Gwen: Tanya
Andy: Skye
Rhys: Pepper

It's not minor changes but this way I end up with Tosh/Owen and Gwen/Rhys as well....and more of the Torchwood Cast however the other way.... *shrugs shoulders*

Yay! I've been wondering what movie you wanted! (Ugh, I'm going to be away the last week of September/first week of October so I'm going to miss a lot) ::pouts
