Torchwood: Monday Recs  

As many of you know, I'm one of the editors for torchwood_three, and over the last six weeks we've been trying something out called the "Editor's Choice", where an editor updating the newsletter can pick something from that days postings and reccomend it to the world-- er, well, everyone who reads the newsletter that is!

Since I've been reccing Torchwood stuffs for the past six weeks, I thought I may as well start posting my recs here, for those of you poor people not watching the newsletter ;) there's no escaping it now! heh.

Editor's Choice: Employee Relations by entangled_now [Ianto/Owen | 18-Rated]
Why I liked it: Never before has the thought of being covered in 'purple intestines' appealed to me. But if my situation ever ended up like Ianto and Owen's did, I'd be one mighty happy girl. Hot, delicious and utterly satisfying a read.

Editor's Choice:
Shine (Chapter 1) by pike2 [Crossover: Torchwood/Doctor Who | | PG-13]
Why I liked it: There's not alot in fiction that suprises me, I'm pretty good at guessing where a fic is going by the time we get there. The ending to this first chapter however actually made me gasp! I look forward to seeing where the author will take this.

Editor's Choice:
Clouds Beyond The Branches by elke_tanzer [Jack/Estelle | G-Rated]
Why I liked it: Remember what I said about unconventional pairings? Well, okay, so at least Jack/Estelle is canon, but it's also rare and that's what called out to me. Beatifully written and enchanting to read, even if it is het ;)

Editor's Choice:
Torchwood doodles by luinecu [Jack, Ianto | G-Rated]
Why I liked it: Because art is pretty to oogle and those two boys are even more so, even if they are just doodles! heh.

Editor's Choice:
Big Coat Man FanArt by ryuuri_chan [Toddler Jack and Ianto]
Why I liked it: Because the boys look so darn cute in this piece, it's hard not to gush over it and want to pinch their little cartoon-y cheeks. XD

Editor's Choice:
Pub, Lies and Banana Boats by toestastegood [Owen/Rhys | PG-13]
Why I liked it: Because unconventional pairings are love, and the characterisations are just spot on- it's a story you can actually believe would happen, especially with the bittersweetness of the ending.

I have to admit though that the Editor's Choice feature is one of the only things keeping me in touch with the fandom side of Torchwood at the moment, which is a little sad but also something that cannot be helped just yet. Course this also means that I'm only reading the things posted on a Monday, and am missing all the other brilliant stuffs posted throughout the week, but still, Monday's are something at least! XD

I do love the editor's choice you guys do, it's a really nice thing (and you always make such good choices too!). Oh dear god, that rhymed.

Heh, nothing wrong with rhyming!

And thanks, I find that now that I'm selecting something I enjoyed for others to read, that I'm actively looking to try new things. There's not one Jack/Ianto pairing thing linked despite the fact it's my OTP. Instead, I'm reading more 'rare pairs' and het fics, which is odd but surprisingly refreshing!

Hopefully I can keep making good choices, because this feature really is a great thing to play with :D

Squee! To convert, or not to convert... that is the dilemma! XD

But seriously though, if you feel like this could be a sparkly new fanfom for you, just hollar and I can get you the episodes to watch! heh. There are some really pretty boys and bisexuality is something of a norm.

I did not know that - so cool

I haven't read any doctor who or torchwood yet and hope to get into it soon so this is great :D

:D yeah!! Converting new people is always a perk! Especially since the show(s) are light and fun (for the most part) and feature conveniently pretty boys! ;)

Let me know if you need linked up to any of the downloads for either show and I'll hook you up with a few places. I'm dead handy like that, heh.

I wonder if Torchwood will ever come to the US
I've seen them all luckily

oh yessums!

there was a discussion over on torch_wood a while back weighing the pros and cons of that and the general consensus was that it was probably too open with sexuality to be allowed. Which is rather a bummer, esp considering programmes like QAF are/have been airing. So who knows?

Let us be in praise of the interweb for keeping us informed of these shiney new programs in the mean.
