So much prettier than the peacocks, man. I approve of LJ's silhouette-butterflies.

Ugh, [ profile] whoverse_las! Just, UGH. I did finally pound something out, but I'm not even remotely happy with it.

I got my hair cut. I don't like it as much as my last haircut, but at least it tamed the craaaaazy looking bush I was beginning to grow. I wish the layers were a little more... layerie. I like the choppy look. And because I had it done at the local ~organic~ place, it cost about $15 more than I was expecting. Not making that mistake again, even though I loved the smell of their products.

Last night I played with my dinner and it got rec'd on [ profile] torchwood_house and wrecked on [ profile] who_anon. It was a surreal evening all around.

ETA: (socially unconscious this week, lol... I've been meaning to do this for days now)

[ profile] tw_gleeclub is hosting a whoverse lightning round to raise money for Pakistan!

Bidding begins on Thursday, September 2nd, and closes on Sunday, September 5th, and will follow a bidder's choice format. I plan on bidding at least once, and hopefully I'll have time to fill a few as well. :)

More information can be found here!

Torchwood star Barrowman is ready to whip his kit off in charity strip on stage via Scottish News of the World.

Some one bring a cameraphone, I beg of thee.

I wish I had some kind of artistic skills. Ianto would have looked badass with a jetpack.

I picked up my comic books yesterday, for the first time in about two months. I had quite the stack, and I really enjoyed them. I culled some of the crap from my pull list, and there's been a marked improvement in a couple of the titles I was beginning to get impatient with.

I got the new Torchwood comic, but I haven't read it yet because I have to read them in alphabetical order. It's a thing. I'll get to it tonight, probably. (I also got the new Torchwood mag, so I can finally read the second half of Shrouded. We'll see how that goes, too.)

I'm really disgustingly happy to have Birds of Prey back, fugly-ass filler art aside (seriously, Benes? sleep on the job much?) and Fables is continuing to rock, since I've finally swallowed my pride and started reading it again after Bill Willingham pissed me off. I need to just stop reading creator interviews.

I have thoughts on X-Factor regarding characterization, relationships, the probability of someone getting knocked up every single time they have sex, and a sort of backwards comparison of the Rictor/Shatterstar relationship to the Jack/Ianto relationship. It really needs its own post.

THANK YOU to whoever nominated me to the Children of Time awards!

Why do Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow insist on going on vacation at once? They're confusing my morning ritual of gratuitous lefty news consumption. Chris Hayes is cute, though.

I'm probably sticking around at the Holiday Inn, even though it chafes to do so, and I really want to stomp out in a rage of workers' rights and solidarity. But, I have seniority and benefits and a plan there. Our management company pays for half the cost of classes directly related to the pursuit of a hospitality degree. And they'll pay for all my books. I guess this is the price for which I'll swallow my pride. I'm going to compromise by making a lot of noise about getting security cameras installed. A. Lot. Of. Noise.

Going to my mom's house to do laundry! Will try to write something before she comes home -- the meme prompts, and my entry for [ profile] whoverse_las entry. And PS -- [ profile] whoverse_las, WHERE DID ALL YOUR PARTICIPANTS COME FROM!? Holy shit! Assuming one person expelled per two week period, this challenge is looking to run two years and change. Eek!

Ok, going to pick my dirty laundry out of all the random places it tends to end up.

PPS -- I really want to go see Inception! This needs to happen!

Here, have a gif. <3

Stoled from [ profile] thepyromanical1! And pretty much everyone else....

I'm offering up fic (of >150 words) to the first 5 people who comment with a pairing or characters and a prompt or two, of which I'll chose one. But in return, you have to post this in your own journal. (It doesn't have to be fic offered though, it can be art or picspams or meta or vids or whatever, and you can chose the number).

My specialties are Torchwood and NuWho. I reserve the right to take for-freaking-ever to finish because I have the attention span of a red squirrel, and I might need to wait for ~*~inspiration~*~ (or vodka) to strike.

C'mon guys, all I need is "It wouldn't be my Torchwood"...

I know you have it in you!

So goddamn close... )

Though for the record, RTD has this amazing ability to make me less enthusiastic every time he opens his mouth...

Title: Everything Looks Perfect from Far Away
Author: [ profile] _lullabelle_
Rating: PG
Word Count: ~600
Summary: Ianto and Jack have a chat on the Plass. Fluff ensues.
A/N: Written for the [ profile] redisourcolor Challenge #6: Children. The phrase to use was, "Well, I wanted strawberry," and the words to incorporate were fairytale, sunscreen, and scarred. Thank you, [ profile] heddychaa for the on-the-fly beta.

Ianto leans against the guard rail overlooking the Plass. )

Earlier this evening, I foolishly let myself get pulled into this swirling abyss of wank. I decided that next time I want to be prepared.

If you're not looking forward to the new season, it's cool. A lot of people aren't. If you're not up for a gentle sporking, however, you may want to give this a pass.

I think tonight was a blackout. )

1) Put your iTunes on shuffle.
2) For the first ten songs that play, write a ficlet. You can only write for as long as the song is playing. And then -- on to the next!

This was crazy-tough, but a good exercise, and I don't completely hate everything that came out of it.

So: ten ficlets, various lengths totaling about 2,000 words. All Torchwood, both pre-and-post CoE, various characters and pairings. Nothing above PG-13. Sorry about the last one, that song's like 60 seconds long.

Thanks to [ profile] heddychaa for the zippy quick beta, even though I know she was wicked busy. :)

Cut for the sanity of your friends page. )

Ten things I have enjoyed in the last week.

1. [ profile] writerinadrawer. If you're not voting, you really should be. Every week writers fulfill a prompt. The prompts are then unveiled anonymously, and readers get to vote for one winner, and one person to get stuffed into the drawers in the Torchwood morgue. The quality of writing is insanely good. Voting is still open until tomorrow, early afternoonish (3pm CST). Don't forget to read the rules!

2. Season of Mists by [ profile] ninjasnano aka [ profile] lookninjas -- This is a rewrite of what was already a pretty awesome fic, written for Torchwood Big Bang. It's a crossover with The Sandman, but only in the peripheral -- you really don't need any knowledge of the Sandman comics to be able to fully understand this. It's a CoE fixit, it's fantastically engaging, and you should totally read it.

3. Yesterday, this made blow soder out my nose. Also, it's hot. And mildly NSFW. GRRROWR.

4. Nothing Can Happen More Beautiful by [ profile] solsticezero is just gorgeously put together. Warning: discussion of suicide, has the potential to be major-league triggery.

5. [ profile] heddychaa has this awesome 7 parter, Plastic Dolls Floating Across the Atlantic, Toy Soldiers Crowding the Pacific. It's complete, she's posting one part daily (the second part went live earlier today). There's an intriguing mystery here, some terrific OCs, and if you comment-spam her she might continue with it. FLY, MY MONKEYS. FLY.

6. THE BIG BANG. OMG. *flaily hands*. I loved the color schemes. I... loved this whole season. With the exception of the silurian eps, and victory of the daleks to which I give a hearty "meh". I LOVE AMY. TIMES A WHOLE FREAKING LOT. I'm... trying really hard not to spoil anything here, so there'll probably be a whole new post so that I can spoil at will.

7. Just marathoned through the last four episodes of White Collar. OMG, I love White Collar. IT STARTS AGAIN IN JULY. omg.

8. Caught up on some of my comic books. "Red Robin" is making me love Tim Drake again. They're writing him a little more balanced now, and the more I look back at the last two story arcs, the more I realize his kind of insane behavior as a reaction to grief. The fact that he's beginning to rebound has greatly enhanced my appreciation for the author. He's starting to sound like himself again. His scenes with Super Boy in this last issue are tempting me to pick up Teen Titans again, but I've been burned by that title so many times now that I'm a little gun shy.

9. [ profile] redisourcolor is a Jack/Ianto fiction contest community. Every Sunday/Monday a prompt is posted. Submissions are due on Thursday, voting happens, and a winner is announced on Sunday. It's a cool community that could really use more participants. :)

A/N: Written for the [ profile] redisourcolor challenge #4: Weddings. The quote to use was: ''We are not having anything pink in this event.'' and the words to incorporate were ice, rose, and lightning. Thank you [ profile] heddychaa, for the awesome beta job.

It was cold this close to the ocean... )

Rough couple of days. Here are things that cheer me up to think about. No particular order.

I've noticed something.

In my fanfic, I tend to write Gwen being awesome and Ianto being awful. I think I do this just to be ornery.
