[livejournal.com profile] dr_is_in, [livejournal.com profile] iceshade and [livejournal.com profile] the_ped are all kindly offering up Dreamwidth invite codes. If you want to create an account over there, drop them a message!


EDIT: Dreamwidth have an invite code sharing community, should the above users run out: DW_Codesharing

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 ♥

Okay ... so I dunno ... but quite a few people seem to be wondering 'Why does Jack come back to Earth?'. Is it to make right all that he did wrong? Is it to finally face his past? Is it because he remembers he has a fucking duty down here?

No.

Oh no.

According to Starz Press Room, it runs so much more deeper than that. Yes - he returns to Earth for a reason so much more profound than anything we ever truly considered - nay, even pondered on.

Captain Jack Harkness returns to planet Earth, facing the depression and ghosts that haunt his every waking step and the 'graveyard' of his own making ... because of his 'unstated love for Gwen Cooper'.

Don't believe me?

Here you go:
http://www.starz.com/pressroom/TCASummer2010


It's in the character assassination bio for Jack, right under 'He's a slut, he's a slut, he's a slut', and just above 'Gwen is the ULTIMATE WARRIOR!!!!!!!!!!'.

Don't bother looking for a reference to Tosh, Owen or Ianto. 'His friends are dead' are all you're getting as far as continuation is concerned.


On the bright side, Gwen named her baby 'Anwen'. Awwww!


And Rex Matheson sounds like a total arse - and he's not even the paedophile.

List of Children of Time Award nominees here





EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE thanks guys - especially since I've been really bad with posting thanks to writers block and Big Bang at the moment. I'm working to catch up, and this has just spurred me on quite happily!



Much love to everyone in the world ever,


Silver

Well ... a 'promotional image' of TW has surfaced, over on SFX (I haven't read the interview because it's with RTD, and I'll probably just get angry).






So ... erm ... yeah?


WHUT DA FECK?



Composition with only two subjects has to be of the same 'status', otherwise the picture leans. See how the skyscrapers they tried to balance it out with LEAN because the right side of the image is taken up by SMALL Jack since there isn't enough room for him next to DOMINANT Gwen. Maybe the skyscraper will fall on him and bury him for a billion years so that he can't interfere with Gwenwood.

Why did I promise myself I'd watch the first few episodes of this? I hope to GOD some kind of MIRACLE happens and something DECENT is produced, because I won't be able to get those hours of my life back.




EDIT: At least I got my new series of 'Animals at Work', and I have to say there's far more interesting drama in chicken-guarding alpacas than in RTD's left horn!

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! >:|

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.

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

My friend sent me this:







My life is now complete. This is all I ever wanted, and now it's happened I don't know where my life is going any more.

Ah well ... back to fanfiction! I'm currently working on my kink for [livejournal.com profile] damaged_silver, as well as chapters of Another Life and Silver Service on rotation, so they'll probably be up around similar times.

I'm also pondering starting chapter 2 of the prison fic thingy. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm ....




If the picture's yours, let me know so I can credit!

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 ...

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)
Okay it seems unlikely I'm going to get an IM or Silver'Verse update up tonight - I've started a humour one-shot crossover and I'm on roll [call me butter, 'cause I'm on a roll! hahahaha soooo funneh!] so I'm gonna get that done until I can write an acceptable chapter of either IM or Silver that is in no way force due to lack of concentration on the bunny-at-hand.



Also ... not only did I kick my SO in the balls the other day, I also got him back for the book/head hitting incident by very, very carefully rubbing Greek yoghurt into the sunburn on his back today.


Yeah ... he's sleeping on his front tonight ....


*EBIL LAUGH*

Painting I made on photoshop:

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.us

QuickPost Quickpost this image to Myspace, Digg, Facebook, and others!

Drawn using standard laptop touchpad mouse - about 13 hours in all.

Underdrawing an colour samples taken from www.jimmycarr.com. The colouration is all mine, and I think I might have gone a bit off on one with it ... he's rather orange ...

A bit of a lazy day today, so I've started a digital painting of Jimmy Carr (it may look like him ... it most probably may not). Too early to tell if it will actually be any good but nevermind.

My ballerina in oils has dried shockingly fast, and I'll most probably have to start it again. Kind of a good thing since I wasn't too keen on the underdrawing anyway. I might attempt to have a go without one next time.

Which reminds me, I need to buy some paint thinner ...

In case you're wondering about Chapter Five....


I'm having a couple of problems with flow, hence the long delay between four and five, plus I've just gone back to college, so bear with me while I get on top of all my start-of-year coursework ¬¬
