knitchick1979: Drawing of Philip from Kamen Rider W transforming with the Heat Memory. (Donna - Bovvered!)
You know what, I don't have to say it.

[livejournal.com profile] emryldlady, she of the SUPER EPIC AWESOME, said it beautifully. Right here, basically everything except Matt Smith & Amy I agree with 110%.

I don't want to hear wank about what John said or the whole Ianto thing. I've said my piece about what I think of CoE and RTD, I've washed my hands of it. For all I care, RTD & his crappy CoE can go rot in the same place my stupid ex is rotting, which is no where near my thoughts.

Now, I'm gonna go back to writing some epic awesome Ten and Donna fic, because I refuse to believe that's all the time those two traveled together, because Donna is just way too awesome for that.

Day 27 – An Episode You Wish Hadn’t Been Made

Does Torchwood count? Cuz I wish all of series 3 hadn't been made. Poorly written absolute trash. :(

For Doctor Who... there's really not much I don't like to be honest! "Love and Monsters" is about the only one I really don't like, and even that one has some redeeming qualities (like Moaning Myrtle... I forget the actress' real name but when she opened her mouth I was like "OMG MOANING MYRTLE!").

Day 21 – Your Doctor Who OTP

Hmm... guess I don't have an icon of it, but Jack/Ten/Donna/Ten.5.

Yes I'm weird. :)


(Canon OTP? I'm a total slobbering Janto fangirl, plus I adore Amy/Rory and I do enjoy Four/Romana)


ETA: I was so tired when I wrote this I totally forgot my favourite crack pairing: Jack's Coat/Ten's Coat! (yes I found a fanfic that had them making out and fell in love with that pairing)

Day 20 – The Character Who Is Most Like You

Hmm that's a tough one. I'd have to say Toshiko. Whenever I take those "Which Torchwood character are you?" quizzes, I get either Jack or Tosh or sometimes half & half (I srsly did in the one from the magazine). I tend to be quiet when I'm not in cosplay (I used to be worse! Most of y'all didn't know me when I was little miss super shy), and I'm pretty good with computers. Not Tosh level of genius, but I have managed to disassemble and reassemble a laptop and have it still work afterwards ;)

Day 18 – Whatever Tickles Your Fancy

Hmm... well since today (well, technically yesterday now) was Big Finish Day and I splurged on four Doctor Who audios from them, let's make this a Big Finish post! I'll talk about some of my faves, and if you like Big Finish please tell me what ones you think are good so I have ideas what to grab during the next sale or at Chicago TARDIS!

So anyway that's a selection of audiobooks I like! Tell me what else is good and I should start looking for! (I do have a bunch more that I didn't list here, because they weren't spectacular or I haven't listened to them yet - there's about *counts* wow, 34 audiobooks in my iTunes that I haven't listened to yet, most of them Doctor Who).

Now that I'm back... time to return to this!

Day 16 – Your Favorite Who-Related FanFic

Oooh that's a tough one. I have to give two and they're really series rather than single stories.

[livejournal.com profile] faithharkness has a whole AU, the Hannah-verse, that I adore. Grace is the main story (which is long but OMG so worth the read! Trust me!!!), but it was the list fics of everything Hannah learned working at Torchwood that hooked me initially. I don't even remember how I stumbled on them but I just remember reading the list going "Who is this Hannah character? I love her, but seriously why do they let her answer the phones?" :) Read anything by [livejournal.com profile] faithharkness, you'll not regret it!

My other pick is Children in Time by [livejournal.com profile] huskyfriends. And the sequel Children Through Time that's still in progress. Yeah I'm a bit biased considering Lynnae is totally based on me and I also have helped brainstorm a lot of what's in that series but it's still an awesome book. The first book was written for last year's TARDIS Big Bang, the first part of the sequel for Scifi Big Bang, the second part for this year's TARDIS Big Bang, and she's doing the rest for Torchwood Big Bang. It's again a very long story (the first book is over the 80K mark) but SOOOOO worth it!

knitchick1979: Drawing of Philip from Kamen Rider W transforming with the Heat Memory. (Jack Reading 1)
Swiped from [livejournal.com profile] luvinthe88and20 cuz I like sharing books :)

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest (unless it's too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1).
6. Tag five people.

(Socks from the Toe Up is closest but I won't bore y'all with a selection from that!)


It realized it was surrounded -- the forces of the locals making a first doomed attempt at containment, with all their little vehicles, or, as the Vam thought of them, snacks.

It considered what to do next, idly popping out a few thousand eyes to watch the conflagration beneath. Obviously it was going to expand, to surge and devour, what in which direction? It could sense a large cluster of ... suburban dwellings on the other side of the road. The crowd which was currently watching it, learning to fear and curse the name of the Vam, why, they had streamed from them in curiosity. The Vam could just extend out a little way and take them with very, very little effort.

So it did.

Hey gang!!!

Hey all!

I am home safely from Chicago TARDIS. This was the best convention EVER, I'm struggling to find the words to describe how amazing it was!

My eyes are closing because I'm exhausted but I just wanted to post a brief report before I pass out.

knitchick1979: Drawing of Philip from Kamen Rider W transforming with the Heat Memory. (Period Military is back)
Hello everyone!

ETA: Less than one week to go! PM me if you need a contact number to call, especially if you think you'll be running late.

I'm putting a post here in my journal to spread the word about an idea [livejournal.com profile] huskyfriends and I have been batting around. We love spending time getting really awesome photos of cosplay (like when we spent time with [livejournal.com profile] adistantshadow at Wizard World, that was fun!) and we thought, why not make a day of it and get a big group together to get photos at some great locations we know of. I've been to a few gatherings organized on the Anime Central forums, like the Acen Aftermath Photoshoot in 2007 where at one point we had around 50-60 people walking en masse around downtown Chicago. It's great fun!

So, we would like to create a Whoniverse cosplay photoshoot gathering on Saturday, October 24th, 2009.

Details behind the cut )

So....who might be interested in coming? Characters? We've already started brainstorming and we have a load of great ideas already but the more the merrier! Pass along the word, we'd love to have a great big group. Any and all Whoniverse costumes are welcome and also non-cosplayers are welcome too. I'd love to have multiple photographers come along to this. Comment away! :D

Hey everyone!!!

The photos from the photoshoot that Nick took are uploaded!!

His website is The Enthusiasts and there's a great shot from the WTTW sign on the front page, with a link to the full gallery.

I'm just skimming quickly but WOW these photos are some of the best cosplay shots I've gotten! :)

I really can't wait to see what comes out of Carole's camera. (hers we have to wait, film takes longer!)

Now, I go change out of costume :) but thanks everyone for coming, I can't wait for the next one!!!!
knitchick1979: Drawing of Philip from Kamen Rider W transforming with the Heat Memory. (Captain Jack WWII)
Okay gang! Carole and I took some time tonight to work up a full schedule.

Photoshoot schedule this way! )

Again, please spread the word to anyone you think might come! Open to anyone in the Chicagoland area, and no, you don't need to have a Doctor Who related cosplay to join us!

Just thought I'd post links to some of my writing. I keep forgetting to post up a link to the story I did for [livejournal.com profile] wintercompanion and I thought while I'm at it I'll link my other stuff too!

Anyway that's some of what I've already finished and posted. Now I'm working up my plots and getting ready to write two Big Bang stories. Yes, I signed up for the Torchwood Big Bang as well as already working on the SciFi Big Bang. Yes, I am insane. :) So, please read and enjoy and comment!
