I wonder if this is why so many fanfiction writers assume Jack and Ianto never went on that dinner and movie date. Huh. Never made the connection. Damn shame, as I like to think that they DID go on the date, Torchwood be damned.

Sometimes I really don’t understand how things like this didn’t rub Jack the wrong way from the beginning. I mean, she just met Jack, it’s her first case and she’s already acting like a bitch. Seriously. Newbies shouldn’t call out the boss like that, because she knows nothing. Sort of makes me want to read or write a fic where everytime Gwen pulls this shit, one of the team smacks her down and calls her out. Ugh. 

Welsh question

I hope someone can help me! If Ianto Jones were to go to the pub, would he play billiards (pool) or snooker? Imagine my surprise when I Google billiards in Wales and learn there is something similar yet different called snooker! But not only am I not that fluent in pool, but I’m not Welsh either, no matter how much British slang and spelling has crept into my vocabulary. So if this story is ending up at the pub over a game table…should it be pool or snooker?? 
A good website to reference besides Wikipedia would be wonderful as well. Thank you, Tumblr fans! :)

An Unremarked Occasion, a torchwood fanfic | FanFiction

As Ianto’s birthday comes to a close, I thought I’d recommend a short fic by my wonderful beta, set on Ianto’s 24th birthday. So sad, but wonderfully done.
Title: An Unremarked Occasion
Author: Tamaar
Summary: On the occasion of his 24th birthday, Ianto Jones shares a cupcake and a glass of champagne with his girlfriend.
Rated: K+ - English - Angst - Words: 1,520 
I can’t believe I haven’t seen this on the IJ tag today! It cracked me up last year. Time to send it around again!

And some gifs of the lovely Ianto Jones. None of which are mine. I just like to stare at them on days like this. 

Some of the many, many pictures I have kept of Ianto Jones.
Pen blwydd hapus!  

I think I reblogged this last year. How about that. Happy birthday to one of my favorite fictional characters!

This is why I love/hate writing sometimes. It really is an adventure in the unexpected.

Because I’m sitting here writing on the porch and getting closer and closer to finishing this particular chapter, when all of a sudden the character I’m writing about takes a turn toward major, unanticipated angst of the worst kind. Like, the “I don’t deserve to live!” kind. 

And I’m actually sort of tempted to let him/her angst about it a bit before I really do kill him/her.

Sometimes I wonder about myself.

But! I really can’t do that as I am wise enough to recognize it would be a betrayal of the story and the character, as well as the readers.

But an alternate version might be fun.

Anyone ever gone with the unexpected, the shocking? Or written an alternate version to give it a try? Hahah - an AU of my own fanfiction!

How utterly ridiculous. Yet fun. And I bet anyone who writes fanfiction gets it all.

Quaint Little Categories, a torchwood fanfic | FanFiction

A few weeks ago I mentioned something about wanting to write a dialogue only fic with Jack and Ianto discussing the subject of categories and labels.

I went on vacation and started school, so it’s been longer than I anticipated, but I did. :)

And here it is! I’ve only posted it at fanfiction.net, so here is a link. Do enjoy, if you like these sort of fics (all dialogue and really a bit meta)

Quaint Little Categories

"You people and your quaint little categories." Jack and Ianto talk about categories and labels. Dialogue only-no narrative.

Without a doubt!
(And I have to add, how could anyone not like Ianto? Even Owen? On the other hand, Ianto probably exercised great patience with Owen. While having a great time baiting him, no doubt. I really want a prank fic with Owen and Ianto&#8230;anyone know one? Or do I have to add it to my list of Things To Write?)

Watch Wil Wheaton's steampunk date with John Barrown

tardis-scooter:

This is absolutely hilarious…

And it all happens at Clockwork Couture, where the Art of the TARDIS Craft Faire was this weekend!

I’m not sure why this thing with Wil Wheaton hasn’t gone viral yet. It’s adorable. John’s adorable. Wil is adorable. John is adorable some more. And funny and articulate and just gorgeous and amazing. I think you can watch it on the Syfy website if this doesn’t work. Totally worth it. See if you catch the vagina joke. ;)

Ao3 lists 356 fics with the Susie Costello character tag! Have at it!
(I use the AO3 search feature a lot - great for looking up episode fics. As long as the authors tagged it, of course. Great site!)

Ooh, yes, let&#8217;s talk about this. Episode by episode? Character by character? Plot hole by plot hole?
Every book/show/movie has its issues. Some of Torchwood&#8217;s are very annoying because we were miles away from answers with some of them before it ended (quite of few of those having to do with IANTO JONES, of course.) But at the end of the day, I still love it&#8212;love picking it apart and love finding good fanfictions that plug the holes and make it all better.
One of the most fascinating things I find are the assumptions we make in order to fill in the gaps. For example, how the hell did Ianto get Lisa into the Hub and keep her alive? Some of the assumptions are that he altered his records to hide his real abilities, snuck her in and seduced Jack to keep him distracted, knew a lot more about everything than he ever let on, kept himself in the background on purpose, slept at the Hub and quite possibly didn&#8217;t have a flat, let alone one that was unpacked, didn&#8217;t eat, didn&#8217;t sleep, etc. etc. etc. A lot of which make sense.
But sometimes I wonder if the reality was anything like that (haha, the fictional reality, that is) or if it was even worse&#8230;
