Fandom Awards : Groovy yo!  
As usual I'm behind on updating ya'll with the important things going on in the land of Caspe, but thanks to some unconscious prompting I've remembered to actually post about a few important things! 

§ The first of which being the fact that tw_fandom_award's announced their [ shortlist ] back at the beginning of the month and out of the 8 fic nominations I recieved I made the shortlists with 5 of them, which is just so unbelievably amazing and unexpected! I doubt I'll win any of them as I'm up against some brilliant authors/fics, but I do secretly have my sights set on one award in particular, but I'ma keep mum on that one incase I jinx anything (or break any rules ;D)!!

So, if any of ya'll are so inclined, head on over and [ take a look ] at the shortlists and if you have a moment, please do [ read the rules and vote ] for your favourite entries in each category! You only have until March 12th to cast your vote so hurry over, play nice and we'll soon see how things turn out!

§ The second point to note is that I've been recced! Okay, so it's maybe not a hugely important thing, but it made me grin rather wickedly. The rec is by  fairyd123on their Torchwood  Master Rec List and is for none other than "Sinnerman" [Jack/Ianto | 18-Rated | Violence/Non-Con] and comes with this write-up:

"Very different in tone from the other fics this is a dark piece detailing a violent sexual encounter between Jack and Ianto. The reader isn't given any clues as to what has transpired to prompt this degree of hatred between the two characters and the sex is pretty much quasi-rape. Somewhat bleak but well written and despite the depth of the emotion on display remarkably in character."

...which pretty much sums things up! Now, although I got a shitload of reviews for Sinnerman, I've always felt that it was somewhat of an unappreciated piece in that with the Torchwood fandom everyone tends to prefer the fluff/porn/'happy ending' fics over anything else. Which is fine. I do tend to lean towards them myself, but to have someone list it as a fav inspite of the content has just made me so very flaily and, dare I say, happy? }:D 

§ There should be a third point here, but as usual it's escaped me. Will post again once I've remembered what else I was supposed to say!

*grins* hun you don't stand a chance of breaking the rules or you'll have Shaz and me shouting at you... she's the scarier one btw :P
Although I am now going to be interested to find out which one you have your sights set on!

Yay for sinnerman! I actually haven't read that I shall go off and do so in a minute
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ XD stopwatch!cs_whitewolf on February 21st, 2008 08:17 pm (UTC)
Lol, hence my keeping mum! Personally I don't want *either* of you coming after me for any violantions XD heh.

Feel free to guess, but I'll not say till after it finishes :)

Umm... so long as you don't have any delicate sensibilities, you should be fine reading Sinnerman. It's not a particularly *nice* fic, though I'm insanely proud of it myself!
_stolendreams_ on February 21st, 2008 08:21 pm (UTC)
lmao! No you're probably safer with neither of us coming after you :P

I don't think we need to worry too much about delicate sensibilities ;)
Yay you for getting recced!

*is now reading it*
*will leave a comment over there when finished*
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ Crying in the Raincs_whitewolf on February 21st, 2008 09:12 pm (UTC)
I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the fic ;)
Georgie: Torchwood - Jack/Ianto (growl)indiefairy on February 21st, 2008 08:27 pm (UTC)
Yay go you being recced! I haven't read Sinnerman since you first posted it, and my god I forgot how amazing it was. Such intensity between the two of them, dark and violent, and fucking brilliant. I really do love it.

and heehee, so weird to see comments between the two of us before we became as thick as thieves XD

oh and good luck with the fandom awards XD
Campaspe: Harry Potter \\ Who stole the cookie?cs_whitewolf on February 21st, 2008 09:28 pm (UTC)
XD omg yay for past comments! Though I cannot believe I neglected to reply to your declaration of being an Alan Rickman girlie :O still, we made it this far at least ;) now I think we're pretty much stuck with one another!! heh.

Georgie: Harry Potter - Snape (quill)indiefairy on February 21st, 2008 11:18 pm (UTC)
Indeed XD and I know you suck :p but hey I can let it slide now, I think we've squeed enough about Mr Rickman to make up for it XD XD

Yeah I keep trying to get rid of you, but you just won't go away :p

Campaspe: Harry Potter \\ I am the Potions Mastercs_whitewolf on February 22nd, 2008 08:43 pm (UTC)
Hey! A girl could take offence with comments like that!

::gets out super-super glue::

You'll never be rid of me ;) Muhaha...!!
Georgie: Harry Potter - Silver Doeindiefairy on February 23rd, 2008 03:26 pm (UTC)
A girl could take offence, you're right :p

Campaspe: Torchwood \\ Crying in the Raincs_whitewolf on February 23rd, 2008 06:20 pm (UTC)
I'ma put on my pouty face if you keep that talk up!

Ambra: SGA;;McShep;Big Dorky Heroesctheinvisible17 on February 21st, 2008 09:16 pm (UTC)
Congrats on the rec and good luck with the awards!! :D
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ wouldn't change thingscs_whitewolf on February 21st, 2008 10:23 pm (UTC)
Thanks hun! I'ma keep my fingers crossed, but even if I don't win for any of them, I'm just chuffed to have gotten nominated at all X)

((oh oh! your icon totally reminds me, any idea where one can *ahem* start watching SGA??))
Ambra: SGA;;John/Rodneyctheinvisible17 on February 21st, 2008 10:44 pm (UTC)
You totally deserve it! Good luck! And I already have my fingers and legs crossed for something else. So um, how does crossing my toes and eyes sound? xD

(You have no idea how much I just squee'd when I read this!! *jumps up and down* :D Everyone needs to get into SGA!!
All the links I have you have to join the communities in order to see the links. I hope that's okay. I'll just give you a bunch of choices. And I hope you don't mind but I'm going to email you the links. Is the email in your profile the right one to send them to?)
Campaspe: Harry Potter \\ Mischevious Weasleycs_whitewolf on February 21st, 2008 10:55 pm (UTC)
XD lmao, your toes and eyes should suffice! haha... what are you crossing everything else for, if I may ask?

((Whoot! I've caught a couple of eps here and there and just think it's so very adorable. Better than the original Stargate anyway, that one just annoys me :S lol but yeah, the email in my profile is the one I use- thank you!!))
Ambra: SGA;;Cityctheinvisible17 on February 21st, 2008 11:12 pm (UTC)
Uhm... I kind of forget now. *scratches head* I know who it's for (someone else on my flist) I just don't remember what. Well crap. LOL

(It is adorable! Do you remember what episodes you caught? If not that's okay, I'm just curious. SG-1 was a good show until about the 8th season. RDA should never have left. D:)
Campaspe: Robin Hood \\ Heart Willcs_whitewolf on February 21st, 2008 11:23 pm (UTC)
Lol, does it work if you can't remember, I wonder? XD

(Um, the one that springs to mind is where the two guys in your icon (Rodney and McKay?) are in a forest with a little girl who is going to become queen? Thanks soooo much, got you email ;D)
Ambra: SGA;;McShep;Big Dorky Heroesctheinvisible17 on February 21st, 2008 11:29 pm (UTC)
LOL Let's just say it does. xD

(Oh that's 'Harmony' from season four. Not one of my favorites but it was okay. It had a lot of McKay/Sheppard so I was happy. xD LOL That's the same guy. The guy on the left is Rodney McKay and the one on the right is John Sheppard. You're welcome! :D ♥)
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ Weevil Watchingcs_whitewolf on February 21st, 2008 11:35 pm (UTC)
Ah, knew I'd get it wrong! heh. Still, I'll catch up soon enough ;) so are they the main pairing then? I know every fandom has their top OTP and then the minor ones.

Ambra: SGA;;Reasons to love.ctheinvisible17 on February 21st, 2008 11:59 pm (UTC)
Well, they're the main slash pairing yes. I'm not sure about the het though. And you'd be amazed what fic and fanart this fandom churns out for McKay/Sheppard. It's amazing. Also, the actors are so freaking adorkable it not even funny. Oh, how I love my show! *squishes it* xD
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ lets all have sex?cs_whitewolf on February 22nd, 2008 08:44 pm (UTC)
I'll stay away from the het. At least for now ;) and def am looking forward to seeing how this show goes!

I have the first ep now and am just settling in for watching, wish me luck! XD
Ambra: TV;;;SGA;;John [Please don't steal.]ctheinvisible17 on February 27th, 2008 10:07 pm (UTC)
*pokes you* So what'd you think? :D
