Jackanto ?  

Okay, people, one thing: Jackanto?

I keep seeing this around the Torchwood comms as a reference to the Jack/Ianto pairing and though it's beginning to grow on me, can I just ask- who the hell thought of that one!? It sounds like something out of Pinocchio. XD
Aha! We have found our culprit! CLICKY. It's all nixxie_'s fault (but lets face it, those icon's are cute!)
And feel free to keep discussing the goods/bads of 'mashed' names, I'm sure we'll come up with a suitable alternative... maybe.

I'm puzzled by this one myself since surely by all rules of awful smushed-up pairing names it should be Janto or Jianto? *g*

See now 'Janto' I could live with, it's nice and compact compared to 'Jackanto' (which rolls off the tongue like a badly dubbed porno, if you ask me!) Ahem. XD

"Godzilla versus Jianto" ... oh you just know Godzilla don't stand a chance against the might of the Jianto ;)

(I rather like Janto actually... better than Jackanto at any rate! You got any ideas for a better pairing name?)

Ugh, I hate the mashed-together names for pairings. I've only seen it once, myself, but I'm desperately hoping it doesn't catch on. I mean, anyway, what the hell--you're saving a grand total of one letter by writing it that way. Okay, well, one letter and the slash. But still.
Campaspe: TW Jackcs_whitewolf on November 14th, 2006 12:23 am (UTC)
So do I actually, but if we're going to have to suffer the 'mashed' names, I'd really prefer if someone could come up with something a helluva lot better than 'Jackanto'. Fair enough we still get the slash with it, but really, once you're finished clawing your eyes out the slash aspect is probably the last thing on your mind. heh.

That would be my fault I'm afraid... came up with it whilst making icons when the bbc promo pics came out:


It just turned up in my noggin whilst I was searching for inspiration and seems to have stuck for others, too *grins*
Campaspe: Potionscs_whitewolf on November 14th, 2006 12:28 am (UTC)
Ahh, we can all blame you then! :D haha. I don't mind the name really, it's just too much of a mouthfull I thought for a pairing name... but it does look rather cute on the icons... I may actually nab one despite myself!
Nixxie, Icon Queen!nixxie_ on November 14th, 2006 12:32 am (UTC)
*grins* feel free!

It is a bit of a mouthfull but kinda runs nicely and they are a lovely couple together ;)

I did run short of trying to make other squished names as nothing else fits, really: Gwento? Gwowen?? Toshanto? All icky... I'm sticking with Jackanto *grins*
Campaspe: Enyacs_whitewolf on November 14th, 2006 12:44 am (UTC)
Heh, thanks!

And yeah, there is no denying the 'lovely couple' part or that it's a mouthful to say- but I'll agree it's got a some kind of ring to it. ;)

Gwento!? lmao! How about Gwack? It's not long but it sounds like a duck. Gwarkness? ...usually you find secondnames help add to the flow... O_o...
tanzachick: What do we do now?tanzachick on November 14th, 2006 12:01 pm (UTC)
I'm gonna use Gwack! It makes me giggle.
Campaspe: HMD Amused Chasecs_whitewolf on November 14th, 2006 12:37 pm (UTC)
Haha, yay! I think we should get someone to make a batch of icons with all these ridiculous mashed-names XD
Casey: torchwoodcasey_bee on November 14th, 2006 07:21 pm (UTC)
Heh. Me and my Torchwood buddies decided on 'Jacken' for Jack/Gwen and since we don't really talk about the others...

<--hopeless fangirl

Oh, and best 'ship name in the world:
GACRODO - Gwen/Jack/Rose/Doctor
and if you want to add Ianto into the mix...

Discussion of which is here: http://vands88.livejournal.com/17947.html#cutid1

Campaspe: Batshit.cs_whitewolf on November 15th, 2006 11:54 am (UTC)
GACRODONTO!? What the hell! Now if there was ever a mashed name that sounded as if it were out of a bad Godzilla movie, that would be it! haha.
Casey: jack/iantocasey_bee on November 15th, 2006 09:07 pm (UTC)
LOL! I can just imagine there being a spin-off of Godzilla being called Gacrodonto:

"You want to go to the cinema this weekend?"

"Yeah sure, what's on?"

"Well, there's this film called Gacrodonto..."


No, I'm not high.
Campaspecs_whitewolf on November 15th, 2006 11:14 pm (UTC)
LMAO! I wonder what a Gacrodonto would look like... Ianto's button nose? Rose's hair? Jack's bod? And the Doctor's... sonic screwdriver? ;) heh, excuse me!
Casey: rose and jackcasey_bee on November 16th, 2006 09:05 am (UTC)
Wow...if there's ever a Gacrodonto baby, it's mine! LOL.

Haha, yeah... though for me I always think of H/C = hurt/comfort before I realise I'm supposed to be thinking of pairings! I prefer writing out the names (nice and old fashioned like) too, leaves no room for misconceptions as to who you've actually paired together.

For what it's worth, I was lured into writing a tw_exchange fic on the prompt "Jackadactyl".

C'mon. It had to be written. Srsly.
Campaspe: SSexy Old Gitcs_whitewolf on November 14th, 2006 07:05 pm (UTC)
Haha! I saw that one and was only able to snigger at the very thought of it. 'Course 'Jackadactyl' isn't very likely to catch on around the fandom (or by the gods I hope it doesn't!), so I think we're alright.

I am actually really looking forward to reading what you come up with for that one- it should be interesting at the very least!
skyglass_skyglass_ on November 14th, 2006 09:22 pm (UTC)
It's finished - want me to mail you a copy? (As it's before the deadline of Dec?)
Campaspe: House Wilson guilty lookcs_whitewolf on November 14th, 2006 09:36 pm (UTC)
Sure thing! My email is up on my profile- and that was fast! You really must have liked the idea ;)
faith_less_one: owengwenfaith_less_one on November 14th, 2006 07:51 pm (UTC)
And, of course, what do you say for Owen/Gwen????? Three of the letters in their names are the same!
Campaspecs_whitewolf on November 14th, 2006 08:10 pm (UTC)
I think I've seen mention of 'Gwowen' around but I've never actually thought of that one before- maybe it's a sign that they're never meant to be? ::ducks the hoards of fangirls::
