My friend, [livejournal.com profile] holyfrell, has set up a wonderful new community for Benedict Cumberbatch fans that I'm gonna be helping her out with. If anyone's interested, here's the basics:





A brand new Benedict Cumberbatch photo and video sharing community – get a once-a-day, every day Benedict fix at [livejournal.com profile] dailybenedict :D

Come and join us!

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*

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 ♥

.... Just had to get that out of my system.





Also ... anybody got any idea where I can find the brushes used here?

I used to have them, and I frickin' loved them ... and now ... gone. Stupid Comet - writing off my laptop without asking first and then telling me I have to pay £60 for me to get my hard drive back.

Even if you know of just similar brushes, that would also be awesomesauce.

Yes! I made it to London Film and Comic Con 2010!

I went with [livejournal.com profile] holyfrell, and we met Russell Tovey, Lenora Crichlow (the ghost from Being Human), Aidan Turner (the vampire from Being Human), Ben Browder (John Crichton in Farscape), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom, and also Tommy Brockless' little brother!).

We also met a not very well known early TV sci-fi actor called William Shatner. I don't know if you've heard of him.


Anyway, con reports can be tedious and boring for those who weren't there, so I shall keep it short, to the point and use all the pictures I have.



London Film and Comic Con 2010: )


All the photos except the autographs, Shatner, Alien and Dalek are [livejournal.com profile] holyfrell's. I took them with dubious permission. HA.

Why can't I just sit down and write any more? I used to be able to knock out 25k words a night ... now it's taking like ... a week to do 7,000. What the hell's going on with me????? grrrr.

Dear 10:10 Systems,

Is a reliable internet connexion really too much to ask? All I want is 24/7 access to Livejournal and funny videos on Youtube. It is, after all, what I pay you for.

Is a new router really too much to ask? This is the sixth time in a month and a half that I must waste my credit to ring you, so could you at some point please make good on your contractual obligation wiyh the rental company that owns my house and ensure the broadband is working and reliable (which it currently isn't) and save everyone the grief of the 'have you tried switching it off and on again? ... Have you yroed switching it off for five minutes, then switching it on again?' routine, more often than not followed by two daws of diagnostics and the arrangement for an engineer to visit, right before the damn thing randomly decides to work again and the engineer is deemed 'unnecessary' - 'cause a router that keeps breaking and flashing orange DSL lights when it feels like it is totally 'working and reliable'.

Just be thankful I now have a qwerty on my phone, 'cause this is one pissed fangirl.

I WANT THE NEXT CHAPTER OF JANTO PORN, FROGDAMMIT!

Damn you, 10:10, for only working office hours. If only I knew where ypu physical office was ...

Lots of love and most likely soon-to-be-dashed hope,

Silver

EDIT: Okay ... so maybe switching the router off for five minutes worked. At least I didn't ring them this time ...

But it's still gonna need replacing! I stand by that! >:|

JACK: Heyyyy, Ianto! Would you mind if I called you 'Yan'?

IANTO: Have you heard of that videotape that kills you when you watch it?

JACK: .... no?

IANTO: Ohhhh good.
IANTO: How do you feel about a movie night?

big BANG!

I gave in and signed up for Torchwood Big Bang ([livejournal.com profile] tw_bigbang).


A little miffed you can't pick an artist and sign up together, but never mind. I've got a fic all planned and started, and I think it's pretty much a given that I, the Great Rambler That Is, shall reach the 15,000 word count minimum pretty sharpish (I have 4,000 already - yay!). Chances are I'll redraft and cut a lot of Unnecessary out.


After Big Bang it's reel_tw round three, hopefully (I already have 15,000 words for that ...).


I'm still gonna be busy, though - thank god it's the end of the academic year XD




Anyways - I have other, postable fic to write!
a_silver_story: (Default)
Totally forgot to post!

Yesterday was the one year anniversary of me being a writer!

On the 18th of May 2009, I posted my first fic, Ianto's Secret.

Was it really a whole a year ago?? Doesn't feel that long ..........

My internet is down at the moment (BT! GRAWR!) so I won't be able to get online very often. Hopefully I'll be able to persuade my mam to let me come home this weekend and stay for a bit, but I'm not sure if I can stand the nagging ;).

At least the computer base at the library has a 24/7 access point, I suppose.

Anyhoo, if I'm slow doing ... anything ... you know why.


Oh - and to those dropping hints about Silver Service: I'm trying! Those boys just won't be my friends. I'd get my whip out, but I doubt they'd even enjoy that! Grrrrrr.

I dunno if anyone outside of the UK really heard what an absolute shambles this election was.

Thousands of people - myself included - didn't get to vote because the registers weren't updated, the queues were too long and the stations understaffed or the stations ran out of ballot papers. To be turned away and told you cannot vote because of the professional unpreparedness of the event is shocking.

How can this be a democracy if you can be told you're not allowed to cast your vote? So your station has run out of ballot papers? Well, it's not like you can go to another polling station! You're registered at one, and can only vote there. If the queue takes you out past 10pm, your polling station's register isn't updated or the ballot papers run out you can't go somewhere else and do it.

And I'm not talking about this happening at just one polling station. It was up and down the nation.

Thousands of votes weren't cast, so thousands of votes have not been counted.

Hopefully, with the result of a hung parliament, we will get electoral reform (the party with the most votes actually winning the election? OUTRAGEOUS!) in time for when they dissolve and call another election - because if this is a democracy, that is what has to be done in the interest of fairness and democracy itself.

In other news, the BNP and UKIP still hold zero seats and are 100% powerless, if not obnoxiously loud and rather annoying. Jimmy Carr's assessment of Nick Griffin and the BNP on last night's Alternative Election couldn't have been funnier or more accurate. <3 Jimmy Carr.

Other than that, I can almost say I'm ashamed to live in a country where 45% of eligible voters don't bother, and a 65% turn out means too many have come and you must be prepared to be turned away.


At least we've got John Barrowman, though.

OH



MY




GOD!



I won both the Children of Time Awards I was nominated for! I ... *splutters incoherently*

I can't believe it!

I suppose I should make a speech or something ... erm ....

:|


Well ... thanks, really. Especially to everyone at the Academy and BAFTA Children of Time awards, particularly [livejournal.com profile] rockangelxoxo who is incredibly lovely. Also, [livejournal.com profile] magicmalcolm cuz he makes me laugh, [livejournal.com profile] unrequited1984, [livejournal.com profile] emmalousem_sa, [livejournal.com profile] naddypants, [livejournal.com profile] iceshade, [livejournal.com profile] bettathnbarbie, [livejournal.com profile] eleni81, [livejournal.com profile] goddess_ophelia, [livejournal.com profile] elanor12 and [livejournal.com profile] freekydj (that last one is just "makes me laugh" one, too XD). (Apologies if I forgot someone! - there's a baby crying outside and distracting me :\)

Also [livejournal.com profile] xennie_b for the champagne she sent (viewable on my profile), and also for her vampire!Ianto fics, which you should all go and read NOW.

However, I would most specially like to thank:


  1. [livejournal.com profile] zsazsa4168, who is an absolute darling and quite possibly my favourite person with a flower icon evaaar.

  2. [livejournal.com profile] kholran, who you should all fall to the ground and worship for all your worth. From late-night transatlantic speed-drawing sessions to Janto Sim Porn, she's there for me!

  3. [livejournal.com profile] holyfrell, whose fault it is there wasn't a chapter posted last night, but is usually responsible for making me write most of the flippin' time. I just sincerely hope she doesn't buy a whip ....


Most of all, however, I want to thank everyone who reads this journal whether you comment or not. Everyone who's ever read this journal ever, ever, ever. Especially if you voted for me.

I'll amend my journal banner when I've finished this chapter of AL, and I'll post my banners once the corrections come in (type-o's mek Silvah cwy! - not reallyyyyyy!)



Much love and gratitude and JantoPr0nz,


Silver

I invested in a webcam (that was FUCKING EXPENSIVE) and it came with 'fun filters', so myself and [livejournal.com profile] holyfrell decided to test them out. Our favourite was the distortion one ...

[Cue copious usage of the 'Print Screen' button]


See the many faces of Silver ...
