Good morning/afternoon/evening/night my little ladles and jellyspoons!



Here are the results of the poll!



So the Prison fic won! I shall be writing that, and the Myfanwy one when I get the time. I have, however, made a vow to [livejournal.com profile] holyfrell, and shall write up the fix it as a one shot at some point.

I shall be updating 'Another Life' later on tonight - 4.5K words so far, and I think it might end up being twice that at least.

Chow for the now and much love,



Silver

... okay ... now that I've had chance to calm down ....



OMG OMG OMG I'VE BEEN NOMINATED FOR THE CHILDREN OF TIME AWARDS!





I've been nominated in 'General Fic' for Silver Service and 'Future Fic' for Another Life.




I'm effin' chuffed! Thanks guys! (especially [livejournal.com profile] zsazsa4168, [livejournal.com profile] holyfrell, [livejournal.com profile] naddypants and [livejournal.com profile] griza - and [livejournal.com profile] magicmalcolm, because he sends me alcohol ...)



I'll be updating my banner and icons soon. Like .... now. Like ... instantly. Here they are:







(I do love a muted colour scheme)


... you might have noticed the slight hint at my nomination on my banner - you may also notice I fixed Jack's eyes.

Sorry ... I'm gonna have to squee again ...

*SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE*!


What a lovely gift to cheer me up before this year's Singles Awareness Day!



Much love to everyone in the world ever ever ever!

Okie dokie ... in case you've missed, over the past couple of days I've been 'piloting' four new ideas. I've decided that at the very most I can go with two of them once Silver Service has finished. At the absolute most. If you BEG.

Here are links to all four:


Pilot 1
Pilot 2
Pilot 3
Pilot 4

Okie dokie! New layout!

I've also completely re-vamped my Profile, starting over from scratch.

Let me know if you spot anything that needs changing - the buttons on the comments are a bit funny, but I think we'll be able to survive until I figure out what the hell I actually did to make them go like that. I haven't noticed anything else just yet (apart from the distinct lack of Janto animated goodness in the side bars - sit tight, it shall return!) so do flag if you spot anything.

*whew* that was a hard work! Ish.

Right .... Silver Service or Another Life?

I haven't updated Silver'verse for a while ....

Work to do!

Gaah ....

I'm bored, and I've got a bit of writers' block. I'm part way through an update of Silver'verse and .... it's all STOPPED, like an over-actor child in a crappy mini-series.

So .. I don't usually do this ... but ... boredom makes fools of us all.

Basically, whoever loves Button most gets to be in a one-shot with him (possibly smutty).

Tell me why you love Button most, maybe suggest a scenario, and I'll decide who deserves the *cough* honour.

[Poll #1498436]
a_silver_story: (Default)
Gah! The muse has left me again! I've been trying to motivate myself to write for the past couple of days, but everything has just been, basically, a rambling trip to nowhere. I'm working on several things at once, which I don't think much helps.

Anyways, here's what's coming up (probably all at once):




  • A request for [livejournal.com profile] melten - more babysitting fluff, with snow and chocolate. Yay!


  • My NaNoWriMo Janto fic - starts just after KKBB, and explores how things could have gone another way (Dun dun duuuunnnnn). I may be abandoning this one and taking up another idea and try and get that one done in time. Ha.


  • Silver Service, of course!


  • A request for [livejournal.com profile] unrequited1984 in the IM verse. I'm saying no more ....


  • A re-write of Shark Attack 3: Megalodon. It will be called 'MegaloJohn', and involve Janto trying to get away from Captain John's enormous co - ... shark. This one may take a while. It needs a plot, since the one in the original film is a little ... non-existent.

  • The plot bunny for a couple of other AU's has decided to burrow into my mind. Once I decide which I like best, I'll set to work. Possibly a one-shot, but given the fact every series I have started as a one-shot it'll more likely turn into a series. Hey! I can't help it if I'm a sucker for detail!


  • Dabbling in Dibley! And this time, Ianto gets to meet Harry.


  • Silver'verse needs updating ... can't even remember where I left that one ... OH YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT! Threesome!



As you can see, I'm going to be a very busy bunny - all this, as well as my uni work! How will I manage - especially with my newfound ability to sleep, which is incredibly joyous. I've also just had my Swine Flu injection, so my left arm is very hurty at the moment. Well, both my arms are hurty at the moment. I had Swine Flu in one arm and seasonal in the other.

I'm a Risk Group ^_^

Anyhoo, I shall leave you all with this photograph of me, sneaking my Ianto cosplay into a Bugsey Malone night (if anyone asked, I was the Gay Mafia ...), you can't really see my waistcoat though. Pfft.


I coulda been anythin' that I wanted to be ...

... and for the crack ...

YAY!!!

AHHHHHHHHHMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM BACK!




So after yesterday's fiasco, I've finally got my internet sorted and brought back to life. It more sputtered than John Barrowman© full on gasping, but we got it back.

What annoys me though is that I told the guy FIVE TIMES on the phone what the problem was, and that I could nip to the shop and get a new ADSL cable and simply give them the receipt to reimburse the cost of the new cable. They told me not to do that until they were absolutely certain that the cable was the problem, and that they'd be sending a handy man round to look at the hardware.

So he comes around, he looks at the router, he tests a couple of things ....... "Your ADSL cable is having trouble transferring the information."

... yah. No shit Sherlock.

I wouldn't be too bothered by their caution, had Roy not had the exact same problem two weeks ago and they let him sort it out the way I suggested - hell, I was the one that pointed out the problem, what the problem was and how they had to fix it!

One thing that pisses me off about IT guys - and I've got this a lot - is the assumption that because I'm a girl, I don't know anything about computers.

Hello? I have a t-shirt with the slogan 'No, I will not fix your computer' for a reason!!

In other news, I had the most surreal experience of my life today. I was in town looking at ADSL cable prices, wearing a white t-shirt that I'd used a permanent marker to write "I am one of 9 hysterical women on the internet" on the back of. I was just happily minding my own business, when this lovely young lady comes over and asks if I'm part of the Save Ianto Jones campaign, to which I reply, "Yes, to an extent."

She tells me she is too, though she's not really an online-y sort of person and mainly sticks to Twitter rather than LiveJournal, and do I have a Twitter account? I say yes and I tell her my username is "a_silver_story".

... now I know what a full fangirl squee looks like in person, and so do several innocent people in PC World, Chester.

Apparently she reads my fic *waves* and loves it to the point of refreshing her page every hour or so to look for updates even when she's in lectures. I rather ungracefully turned beetroot red by this point, mumbling a couple of thankyous and stuff with no idea what I'm supposed to say.

She did ask me a couple of questions though, that I shall reproduce and answer for you all here:



How are you?


Fine, thanks.



How did you come up with that immortal!Ianto theory with the Timey Wimey and the axis?

I was lying in bed, contemplating that if Jack was fixed point in a Timey Wimey ball (as presented to us in 'Blink'), he'd have to be in the middle of said ball in order for Time to flow smoothly and work in order with no problems. So I thought to myself: what if he wasn't? What if he moved?

And the basic science of the axis behind it present in my mind for ... er ... reasons I can't go into here gave me the blatant answer.

Someone would have got this theory eventually, I just ... got there first.






How can you manage to write such long updates and post them so often?


Insomnia. I'm an insomniac. I go for about three days without sleeping at a time, and need something I can do without waking the SO. So I write stories.

My updates usually average around 7,000 words for Silver Service, and usually about the same for prose entries of IM. My recent 'Hallowe'en Treat' was 16,455 words, and was started on October 31st, finished on November 3rd. If was taking part in NaNoWriMo, I'd be wayyyyy ahead. 50,000 words a month? Easssssy. I've been doing that since about July.

I've also finally started working on my book, which I hope to finish within about six months with as little damage the flow of fic as possible .

I post often because I have the internet. If I don't have the internets, people get hurt.







What are you doing here?

I'm looking for a cheap ADSL cable. Mine's broken, but the guys who're supposed to look after our broadband don't believe me because I'm a woman-kind.




Have you seen Shark Attack 3?


Yes. One day I might come to terms with that.

... or stop randomly laughing to myself.





Will the IM series ever end?


Yes.



How will it end?



Badly.

Ianto dies, Jack flies away on Myfanwy's back and gets shot down over the Bristol Channel, Gwen takes over as head of Torchwood and Rhys and Andy never discover that they are, in fact, meant for each other (in a very homosexual way).



Oh .... you ... you are lying, aren't you?


Yep.




How will Silver Service end?



Badly.


Ianto and Lisa die, Jack flies away on an RAF plane that gets shot down over the Bristol Channel, it turns out that Barbara is called Janet after all, Toshiko and Owen lose their baby to gremlins and Gwen and Rhys take over as the main focus of the story.




Are you going to tell me any true plot lines?


Nope. Stop asking.








I've actually told the plot line for Silver Service to one person, and one person only and shall share it with no more. Unless you bribe me summit good.

I'm desperate for cash. Totally dried up thanks to those stoopid £350 bank charges after I got overdrawn on my CoE pre-order ... that I couldn't cancel because the BBC moved the release date from the 27th to the 13th and had already taken my money by the time I decided I didn't want the bastard DVD any more (coincidentally, on Day Four I reached this decision ....)

Anyhoo, thank you Jenny for the little PC World chat, it means a lot to me that my writing has made you laugh, cry and squee in public quite so profoundly.


Love to you all; whether thee be minions, readers or floaters just drifting by.


Silver

Okay, I'm trying to post the Epilogue for your Hallowe'en treat, but my internet has gone DOWN! (and I mean down!)


Yes, at 5:45, fifteen minutes after the people who can fix my internet left work, the Internet died. This greatly upset myself, and my housemate.

After an hour of no Internets, we were so bored, we ended up making Jenga tower out of DVDs. I won.

So, in despair, I have come to the University Library in the hope of possibly posting the Epilogue. I put it in a nice neat Word.docx, all typed up, self-beta'd and ready to be copied and pasted onto LiveJournal. I sit down at the computer, I swtich it on, I log in .... the systems are too old to read the Office 07 .docx format. Joy. The 2003 one they have also hates me so much, it refuses to convert it for me into something it can read.

I think "Well, it's not the end of the world ... I'll just go home and save the file in different formt. No biggie, and everyone can do with a walk every now and then". So I walk all the way home, convert the file to rich text, and walk all the way back. What's the issue now? Oh, the computer bank I've been using before has been closed for cleaning, so I need to go to the other one in the Reading Room. Fine, okay.

I discover that these read 2007 .docx files and go silently mental.

... still an issue? Clearly.

The bastard thing won't read my USB! I've tried about three different stations, and nothing will accept my little pink USB pen exists.

I promise I will get this Epilogue up tonight, even though everything is against me. I think God might be Gwack (I typed that and thought: 'duh? What has that shouty man with the signs and sandwich board on Chester highstreet been telling you all this time?') because he's the only one who would possibly try and stop me from doing anything.

Whether my sanity will survive until morning remains questionable.

You better all love me.

And I mean love me lots.


Even if you don't like the ending ... which I think you might not ...


It's bit ... RTD ....




EDIT:


Here's the DVD Jenga Tower of DOOOOOOOOM



sorry ... didn't realise how big the photies were! )

Points if you can guess the DVDs you can't see.




I think the clear message here is: DO. NOT. TAKE. THE. INTERNETS. AWAY. FROM. GEEKS.
a_silver_story: (Default)
but you don't read the memo a_silver_story,

Everyone in the world love Gwen.

She's awesome.

Good example to follow.

She's a sex symbol.

Without her, it's the end of the world.

Without her, Torchwood can't survive.

Now excuse me, I go vomit.

a_silver_story: (Default)
This started in another thread ... thought maybe you'd all like to join in. Warnings for Honest Children of Earth Bashing.




Spot the Plot Holes!





Day One

An SUV with a triple deadlock seal is nicked by some chavs when the Doctor isn't able to unlock deadlock seals with his sonic screwdriver. - [livejournal.com profile] caz251 - I think the chavs bricked the windows. Y'know ... the bulletproof windows that bullets can't get through but apparently bricks can? The magic ones? [- Silver]

How come, in Countrycide Ianto can track the SUV using his PDA ... but with the entire Hub at his disposal doesn't even bother?

Why was Rhys in a van at that time in the morning? If he was on his way to work, he'd be in his car. He's transport manager - he wouldn't be in a van at that time of the morning (if at all). - [livejournal.com profile] caz251

Ianto tells his sister that it's just Jack he's attracted to, when in previous Torchwood books he's commented on the sexual attractiveness of other men, made out with other men and in The Twilight Streets openly referred to himself as bisexual.

Why does Bridget Spears give Lois (a temp, who has her first day at the office) her password, that gives Lois access to all the super secret government stuff including killing orders?
Even if it was necessary in the beginnig, how can Bridget not change the password later on? - [livejournal.com profile] sawyer4kate

Presumably the government wanted to kill Jack because he knew about and participated in the 1965 incident. But, if Jack hadn't spoken about before, why did they assume he would now? Why would they want to kill the planet's best chance of defeating its enemy? - [livejournal.com profile] sophyl

If Jack inexplicably had to be killed, why was it necessary to kill Gwen and Ianto? Wouldn't an alien-fighting organization be a help rather than a hindrance in this situation? - [livejournal.com profile] sophyl

Hello, remember the rift, that volatile entity the hub is centered on? Wouldn't a Big Spiky Metal Bomb being detonated on top of it cause a massive crater where Cardiff used to be or at the very least, an enormous hole right through the middle of time and space? - [livejournal.com profile] sophyl

Psst, Bridget, here is a super top secret order to assassinate everyone who knew about the 1965 government deal with the aliens, so make sure you order the hit in an e-mail sent under your username. - [livejournal.com profile] sophyl

Jack couldn't feel that Big Spiky Metal Bomb in his stomach - really? WTF? Did you see the size of that thing on the scan?

Big Spiky Metal Bomb ... with a two mile blast radius that in reality would have killed Ianto on Day One, (what with him being only a few meters away) and most of the Plass. with about 4 seconds left, Ianto isn't really even at the top of the lift and only walks away with a scratch. He's not sent flying through the air or have broken bones or anything. - [livejournal.com profile] diggybear

Why did all the London buses have "Arriva Wales" public travel services logos on the side?

After the explosion, we see Gwen gets a tongue of fire whipping up right in her face and she falls back afterwards. Beginning of day 2, she has no burns on her face, just trouble with her vision and can't hear anything.

I am sorrym but someone who was in such close proximity to fire would have mark after that (hair burn etc) - [livejournal.com profile] jpren678


Day Two

Should we even bother to mention how Gwen and Ianto miraculously evaded the snipers? - [livejournal.com profile] alinoradesancto

We saw at the end of Day One that Johnson and her men were sat in a vehicle rather close to the Plass - so where was she when Ianto and Gwen surfaced from the two-mile blast radius bomb that somehow didn't kill them?

We know from previous episodes of TW that there's a huge mortuary/morgue full of dead ex-Torchies, aliens, weevils, etc, at the hub. So after the huge bomb blast, the area should have been littered with body parts, human and non-human - not just Jack's. - [livejournal.com profile] flobberchops

Jack's body parts - so the bits they found they put in a body bag and they re-knit themselves into a new Jack. So what did the bits of body they didn't find do? Did they also grow into new Jacks - are there multiple Jacks now running around generated from all the bits? - [livejournal.com profile] flobberchops

Ianto, using only a number plate and (his sister's laptop managed to track down a vehicle but yet again failed to search for the SUV? - [livejournal.com profile] alinoradesancto

Ianto was far enough away that he had to use binoculars to see what was going on but could still hear Jack scream? (And know it was Jack?) - [livejournal.com profile] alinoradesancto

The concrete cell took an afternoon to dry solid, when a much thinner pavement takes about a day, and a poured concrete wall about - oh - three?

Look at the size of the cell Jack was in via the CCTV and compare it to the size of the concrete slab Ianto ripped out of the wall. Jack would have had to be standing up in the cell for it to be shaped that way. - [livejournal.com profile] helenscho

Said concrete block could also be lifted by an 8 tonne limit tractor [despite weighing in the region of 40 - no offence Mr. Barrowman.]

How would Ianto know the depth and height of the foundations behind the wall to get the aim of the fork lift right and not break the prongs on the concrete block (or the bricks, for that matter ...)

The tractor not falling off the edge of the quarry that didn't appear in any ariel shots of the vicinity, but must have been close because they remained miraculously uncaptured ...

Ianto drops the concrete slab containing Jack into the quarry, freeing him. Realistically speaking, Jack should have been pulled apart once again since the hard concrete having been adhered to the soft tissue wouldn't simply have detached. - there's also the fact that being encased in concrete like that sucks all the water from your body and leaves burns. - [livejournal.com profile] ice_whisper

why didn't Jack have any concrete in his orifices? It might not be glamourous to watch, but JB pulling a concrete stick out of his arse would've been wonderfully realistic after being trapped in a Magi-Dry© concrete cell ...

The atmosphere pumped into the sealed chamber built to 456 instructions contains a number of poisonous gasses, including "12% fluorine". Fluorine, (atomic number 8) is the only gas more reactive than oxygen; flammable substances exposed to pure fluorine at room temperature are likely to burst into flame. It is quite likely that the mixture described might well explode as soon as it was mixed.

Since this organization is actively hunting down Torchwood, wouldn't the guard at the gate recognize Gwen? - [livejournal.com profile] sophyl

A forklift carrying a 40-ton Jack-in-the-Block of miraculously quick-drying cement does not move very fast. Johnson and her team could probably catch up to it while walking. - [livejournal.com profile] sophyl

After Rhys moved the oil tanker with its keys conveniently left in the ignition across the road, he blew it up with a hand gun, thereby setting the oil on fire. Could not happen. Unless Rhys was using special hollow point, armour piercing bullets and one hell of a big gun. There have actually been papers written on this stale, overused-by-unimaginative-writers trope. - [livejournal.com profile] sophyl

World's slowest car chase - baddies in souped-up sedan can't catch up with a jcb doing about 8 miles an hour before they blow up the tanker (which couldn't actually be blown up by a handgun) that blocks the baddies path? Also, why didn't aforementioned baddies just drive round blazing tanker on the huge grass verges that were on either side of blazing tanker in the road. - [livejournal.com profile] flobberchops - Because of the "Keep off the Grass sign"> - [livejournal.com profile] ffrengig_moron - [sorry, thought it was funny ... - Silver]

There were sentries at the gate on the way in, so why didn't they stop Torchwood on their way out? - [livejournal.com profile] sophyl




Day Three


Pertaining to the warehouse ...

1. Where did they get the sofa?

2. And the office chairs/desks

3. Oil drums? Okay ...

4. I know it was blurry ... but had they somehow got a kitchen?

5. ... and pots and pans? *beans*

6. Speaking of breaking in ... where did Ianto manage to get his Crowbar of Doom?

7. How did they get sufficient electrity and Internet access in a derelict warehouse? - [livejournal.com profile] helenscho

8. How did Jack get clean? How was there running water in the abandoned warehouse? I'm sure utility companies tend to shut down these supplies if no one is paying for them. - [livejournal.com profile] joymaro



If they keep track of their tech, why didn't someone notice the contact lenses were missing before Gwen showed up with them? It did seem like she had them for a while - [livejournal.com profile] diggybear

How was Lois (a mere secretary) allowed to get so close to the 456 wearing the contact lenses etc without someone telling her to back away...and why was she allowed in the room at all? - [livejournal.com profile] helenscho

If I recall Reset correctly (it's been awhile though, so this might be bogus), Team!Torchwood were able to hear what Copley and the Nurse were saying to Martha...so why did they only have clumsy lip-reading software after that? - [livejournal.com profile] magicmalcom

Why would Gwen (ex-policewoman) need to teach Jack (ex-intergalatical conman) and Ianto (ex-petty thief and cyberwoman smuggler) how to be a criminal? - [livejournal.com profile] alinoradesancto

Alice knew enough to not use her own phone to ask about Jack but then only went outside her own house to make the call? - [livejournal.com profile] alinoradesancto

Although at the beginning of the episode Jack appears in borrowed clothing, he has apparently still managed to hang onto his own boots despite apparently previously losing everything.




Day Four

Six words: Virus. Released. From. Air. Tight. Tank.

How come Dekker (or whatever his name, the bastard who was sooo happy and in glee about Stephen being killed) survived? Wasn't the poison suppose to be spontaneous, as in: "It's too late, I already breathed it" fatal. He surely breathed some before putting those protecting clothes...? - [livejournal.com profile] elanor12

The man who prepares for any and every eventuality, walks into a room housing a hostile alien terducken encased in a poison filled tank, with just a handgun as a show of support for the man who may or may not be his boyfriend. No gas mask just in case the bullets from his handgun actually manage to shatter the bullet-proof glass and release the poisonous air into the room. No, sorry, don't buy it. - [livejournal.com profile] sophyl

Also, didn't Jack know enough about aliens and the probable atmosphere of the tank to realize that shooting at it, with the intention to break it, while Ianto was in the room, was a very very bad idea??? - [livejournal.com profile] joymaro

Viruses do not kill immediately. Repeat, viruses do not kill immediately. That is a physical impossibility against all the laws of nature. It cannot happen. Viruses infect the body, mutate, attack cells and then kill the host. At the most, Ianto and everyone else at Thames House should be in quarantine somewhere while a cure is sought. - [livejournal.com profile] sophyl

After killing everyone, the virus just disappeared so it was almost immediately safe for anyone else to enter the building? - [livejournal.com profile] sophyl

And if the 456 killed everyone on the planet, wouldn't they also be killing their one chance to acquire more of their drug? - [livejournal.com profile] sophyl

Oh and how did Ianto get in there without protection? They knew the 456 had threatened before with poison, and they didn't think to protect themselve before saying "You're leaving or it's war"? Come on! It's Ianto! Always prepared! - [livejournal.com profile] elanor12



Day Five

Why the hell does Andy, who has never even met Ianto (at least on TV) ask Gwen if he was gay? Is that really the first thing on his mind while he is on his way to tell the family about Ianto´s death? - [livejournal.com profile] sawyer4kate

ohnson's crew have been monitoring Torchwood and its computer system for years? Without Tosh noticing? My arse they did. - [Unknown site tag] - - They watched but obviously didn't know much about the Hub because they had to give Jack 5 minutes to make sure he was inside properly to blow it up. - [livejournal.com profile] diggybear

Exactly how did Spears manage to record anything with the lenses when there was absolutely no computer or laptop working at that moment to record anything??? Unless of course the lenses have an internal hd or something... which I highly doubt. You'd still have to press "rec" somewhere - [livejournal.com profile] di_br

The army stop chasing Gwen, Rhys and children despite the 456 only just being destroyed - surely they wouldn't have recieved the order yet. - [livejournal.com profile] thehubsitter

So ... Jack sends a sound signal to destroy the 456, right? So ... there should be more 456 in big Millions of Children Carrying Space Ships in the sky right? Especially since sound - even Magic Child Singing in Falsetto Sound - can't actually travel in space ... - [livejournal.com profile] kholran


General/Overall

MARTHA?! OMG WHERE THE HELL WAS MARTHA DURING ALL OF THIS? DID SHE NOT TRY TO CALL THE DOCTOR? - [livejournal.com profile] joymaro

UNIT were ready to blow up the whole planet with the Osterhagen Key when the Dalek's arrived on Dr Who, but here they just shrugged their shoulders and did nothing? - [livejournal.com profile] flobberchops

So they only way the 456 can come down and threaten you is if you build them an airtight glass chamber for them to live in. Here's an idea - don't build the chamber! - [livejournal.com profile] flobberchops

They blew up TW to keep Jack quiet and preserve their secret doing sin 1965. What made them think the aliens would keep quiet about 1965? - [livejournal.com profile] flobberchops

What about the magic self-cleaning glass of the 456's tank? The 456 sneezes all over the place every 5 seconds only for it to instantly disappear... - [livejournal.com profile] i_bananas

Why did the 456 need the kids to be rounded up, when they could have just beamed/used their Magic Fire of Teleportation© to pick them up from their playgrounds using in-depth knowledge of world time zones and kiddies' play times?

Everyone in the world was in complete compliance with the UK - wtf? Even Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq and Korea? Really?? They just agreed to go with what us Brits were telling them to do? Talk about neglect of current affairs in the oh-so-real world of Torchwood: Children of Earth. I mean ... even France hates us, and we're not at war/ political conflict with them!!

For two seasons, we've been told that "the 21st century is when everything changes," and we've believed it because Jack, a time agent from the 51st century knows what is going to happen in our time. I can accept that he doesn't know small events such as cannibals, fairies, sleeper agents, night travelers and even Abbadon, but an event so large that every politician, bureaucrat, soldier/marine and government in the world is a willing participant (and how realistic is that) should have made the history books. If the entire premise of Torchwood is to be believed, then Jack should have known about the 456, he should have seen them coming. - [livejournal.com profile] sophyl

Why did the scar on Ianto's cheek never start to scab? Even after 3 days, it would have got at least a little crusty - [livejournal.com profile] helenscho - The only reason I medically think for this is that he had some kind of blood illness that no one knew about (even the writers!). Like leukemia or AIDS. Delightful. [- Silver]

NOTE: Ianto's scar stays bright red to draw attention to it. Just as all of the bender, gay boy, taking it up the ass, pervert, who's the queer, I can smell it on him references, a scar shaped exactly like a lambda, the international symbol for gay pride, was used to draw attention to the fact Ianto was gay/bi/it's just Jack. - [livejournal.com profile] sophyl








As before, add your suggestions here! Tell your Torchwood buddies and lets see how many we get ...

Contest any 'plot holes' here too. If you can think of an explanation for them (that's viable beyond 'A WIZARD DID IT!') just post it here and I'll see whether or not I'll change/ remove it.

Maybe we could do a thread for S1/S2 plot holes? We have had to ignore quite a few ... :-P

Myself and [livejournal.com profile] griza were chatting on MSN, when we accidentally made up a little game. Now, me - being the genius that I am - forgot to save the conversation and lost pretty much the entire [and rather hilarious] thing.

Anyhoo .. the game is basically called "I bet _______ saved the screen caps for Lonely Nights." Basically, you fill in the blank of the sentence with a name.


Here are the caps. See how lovely and tight JB's suit is, and how little it leaves to the imagination ..

Here's some that I can remember to start us off:




I bet Scott saved those screen caps for Lonely Nights.

I bet John saved those screen caps for Lonely Nights.

[for the fangirls/boys in all of us:] I bet GDL saved those screen caps for Lonely Nights.

I bet Janet saved those screen caps for Lonely Nights.

I bet Sauron saved those screen caps for Lonely Nights.

I bet he emailed them to Voldemort, who saved those screen caps for Lonely Nights.

I bet my hamster saved those screen caps for Lonely Nights.

I bet me, you and everyone else saved those screen caps for Lonely Nights.

I bet our mothers all saved those screen caps for Lonely Nights.

I bet the Supreme Dalek saved those screen caps for Lonely Nights.

I bet Barack Obama saved those screen caps for Lonely Nights.

I bet Bernard Black saved those screen caps for Lonely Nights.

I bet R2D2 saved those screen caps for Lonely Nights.

I bet R2D2 and the Supreme Dalek had robot wanks together over those screen caps on Lonely Nights.

The Cult of Skaro are R2D2's and the Supreme Dalek's misunderstood middle children, and have many screen caps saved for Lonely Nights.

I bet Margaret Thatcher saved those screen caps for Lonely Nights.

I bet Osama Bin Laden saved those screen caps for Lonely Nights.

I bet the spidery-mouse things saved those screen caps for Lonely Nights.

I bet the entire cast of 'Hollyoaks' saved those screen caps for Lonely Nights.

I bet Ianto is in Fictional Character heaven, going through the Fictional CCTV, screen capping it all and emailing it to GDL for Lonely Nights.

Okie dokie ... I just thought I'd let you all know that thanks to the really positive reaction I've had to my writing on here and in a couple of other fandoms (okay ... Harry Potter ...) I've decided to take a u-turn and take on writing as a career possibility. Tomorrow I'm going back to university, and I'm putting in a request to change my course and study Creative Writing.

"As well as learning how to write prose, you will also be studying poetry and the creation of drama scripts for stage and screen." says the prospectus.

I think I'll be happier on this course rather than the one I'm doing now - combined Drama and Theatre Studies with Fine Art - as I think I'll be more motivated to fitting an outline or brief. I prefer to create art when the inspiration takes me, not when the man in the suit says it needs it. While writing is an art form, I find it easier to create stories and ideas from words rather than images from a title.

Thank you for giving me the confidence to go ahead and tell them what I want to do, rather than what has been expected for me to do. (I come from a family of artists ... I need to tell them about this next ...)

Anyhoozle,

I'll probably update later if I'm not lying in a bloody lump somewhere.

Here's something that's just far too cute as a thankyou:

It's a bit wrong that I won my own contest ... but thanks for entering anyway! It was rather fun, wasn't it?


I would also like to say a MASSIVE sorry to [profile] pocoyo_moi, who's icon I somehow missed including in the voting and neither of us noticed until it was far too late :(


Anyways, here are all the other entries, on parade for you to see.

Made by me, me, [profile] pocoyo_moi

You can use any of these icons, just type your own username on them in Paint or whatever - if you're a silly Mac user with no image editing program, comment me if you want to have your name added to one of the icons and I'll do it for ya.


REMEMBER TO CREDIT THE ICON MAKERS!!!!


THIS IS HOW YOU CREDIT:





Remember to check usernames!





If the other two winners want banners, I'll gladly whip some up for ya. Just comment :)

Wayyyy finally ... we're off ...




Here are the entries for our little icontest thing.



001
002
003
004
005




Those of you familiar with icontests will know how the voting works - for those who aren't, you simply vote for which icon you want to come first, then second, then third on each of the separate polls below. The votes are then assigned points (1 for third, 3 for second and 6 for first) and the points are added together. Whoever gets the top three scores wins! [duh]


Repeat votes aren't allowed (unless you're an amazing computer hacker - apparently there's quite a few out there!) - and if you feel the need to vote for you own ... *rolls eyes*












I'll keep the voting open for two days, [closing on 14th August at 13:00 GMT] then announce the winner. I'll even do the whole banner shindig if you want me to.

Please remember that this is just a bit of fun - I don't expect you all to take the icons and start "OMFG" all over Livejournal with them. Even if you don't intend to use them, could you pretty please put a lil vote in? Just for funsies to keep up children happy? ^_*
