Faaaaaaar too long ago, I agreed to do podfic for [ profile] copperbadge but then shit got real in real life and I didn't have the time to devote to it. I'm pleased to say that I finally got around to doing it and he posted it up tonight with links for people to download if they want to listen.

The fic is really good, Gwen-centric, mild R and focusses on how Team Torchwood releases the pressures of the job.

You can get it from here if you're interested. And thanks to him for his kind words in the post too. I'm pleased as punch it turned out how he wanted it.

[ profile] terraswrath just sent me a link to this interview with RTD about the outcry over Ianto's death in Torchwood.

Can I just say upfront that the following article and my own thoughts might contain views that are marginal and controversial in this fandom? KTHX. However it seems that I'm backed up by the big man in this instance. And he is big. Believe me. I've sat next to him ;)

Cut for unpopular opinions, lengthy extrapolation and spoilers for whatever people are left who might be interested in Torchwood and haven't either already watched CoE or been thoroughly spoilered )

We have internet connectivity back at home. It took a while, but we got there in the end. The freakiest thing about the whole experience was that I tweeted this morning about the BT engineer arriving on early and how I was unaccustomed to dealing with strange humans at such an early hour and BT Customer Care tweeted back at me that they were glad to hear they were on top of things are are now following my tweets. Twitter: freaking me out since 2008.

This afternoon, after a catastrophic lunch failure and a lack of progress in the morning due to people and things distracting me I decided to come and work at home. It worked to a large extent and I managed to marshall my thoughts on my most urgent pieces of work and get some words out on paper. I am at least moderately hopeful of getting to the end of the week and being able to say that I've achieved something. I'm not going to get too carried away, though.

In other news, I've finally finished my long-overdue final Torchwood fic and shipped it off for beta. It's been painful to get through but I'm glad it's in the last lap. Once it's done and posted I can move onto other things.

Exactly what those things will be is not yet clear.

[ profile] alba17 just tweeted this link from James Moran's blog. For those who don't know him, James Moran is one of the scriptwriters for Torchwood and was involved with the writing of Children of Earth.

I've read the blog post, and I'm disgusted. I can't believe that people are so incapable of differentiating between real life and fantasy. Would any of these people find it acceptable to go up to Mr Moran in a bank queue or a coffee shop and berrate him for doing his job? I doubt it. And yet the internet gives these deluded cowards the protection they need to vent their disproportionate bile and threaten people who are trying their best to write exciting, provocative drama to entertain us. I also swung by his Twitter and it's also covered in 140 word snippets of bile, accusing him of all sorts.

It makes me sick.

A few months ago, David Mitchell wrote this article in The Observer about the false bravado the anonymity of the internet confers on people to make threats and scream blue murder at people in ways utterly disproportionate to the cause of the upset. If you don't like the way a show is going, then it's your prerogative to stop watching it. At the end of the day, if it's not entertaining you any more then don't watch it. The kind of harrassment that the writers have seen in the wake of Children of Earth has left me with such a bad taste in my mouth that if asked I will no longer say I'm part of this fandom. I don't want to be associated with the truckload of crazy that's come out as a result of this television series not pandering to the fandom fantasies of some of the more vociferously vitriolic. I'm ashamed to say I was part of this fandom now. I don't want to be tarred with this particularly distateful brush.

I'll be fulfilling any commitments already made, but nothing is worth feeling frightened to speak out in a fandom for fear of directing a jet of blistering crazy in my direction for disagreeing with the views of the wounded animal that is the TW fandom right now. There will be no more talk of Torchwood here, lest I get lumped in with the rest of the fandom. Particularly since I don't agree with most of the predominating opinion in the slightest.

As David Mitchell would say, just goes to show you can't be too careful.

I'm mostly keeping my head down and my face out of this fandom to save myself from the huge amounts of crazy contained therein right now, but I promised [ profile] 51stcenturyfox that once she decided the time was right to promote this, I would lend it my support as well as my voice.

She asked me to put my voice to hers and [ profile] neifile7's fantastic fic Fearnought, and I did so last week before all the craziness over CoE kicked off. It's Gwen-centric and focuses on her relationship with THE COAT, is quite filthy and different than anything else I've read in the fandom.

If you want to hear it, you can click here and download it as an MP3. It's about 13 minutes long and might entertain you for as long as it takes to do something otherwise uninteresting but requiring both your eyes and your hands be free.

I just put together the oblique references from my Twitter and LJ and came up with a spoiler for CoE day 4 which I still haven't watched because I was at the theatre last night and it failed to record on magic telly.

Supermassive spoilers, confirmed by independent sources who were at the scene of the incident )

[ profile] terraswrath and I vowed to hold each other's hands through the mixed blessing that was last night's Torchwood Day One. There's been something of an outpouring of squee from fandom in relation to the ep, and I actually wonder whether I'm missing something serious here. So yeah, here were our thoughts, blow-by-blow

Here be unexpurgated, sweary spoilers with a heavy dose of Ianto!hate. If you no likey, look away now... )

I would normally post requested drabbles in the comments, but I wanted to keep these somewhere that I could refer others to. Yes, that's right. I am a comment whore. So sue me...

Mistaken Identity, Jack/Clone!Ten, for 51stcenturyfox )

Save a Prayer, Bastard!Jack/Gwen Cooper, for karaokegal )

Filing, Gwen Cooper/Ianto Jones, for cruentum )

I'm hoping this meme, ganked from [ profile] 51stcenturyfox, will kick my arse and help me to finish some of the growing pile of WIP that currently haunts my hard-drive.

Post a single sentence from each WIP you have (or as many as you want to pick). No context, no explanations. No more than one sentence!

WIP me til I bleed )

Title: Close to Dancing
Author: [ profile] filthgoblin 
Pairing: Jack Harkness/John Hart
Rating: R
Wordcount: 287
Warnings: There's some rough stuff. Set around the fisticuffs in KKBB with added rutting, so there's sex and violence in very close quarters. If that might upset you, probably best look away now.
Notes: Written at the request of [ profile] 51stcenturyfox , who wanted something to fill the gap between Jack and John's fight and the point where the rest of the team shows up in KKBB. Thanks to [ profile] silvaa and [ profile] terraswrath for helpful pointers.
Summary: Being kissed by John Hart was a bit like being in a fist-fight
