{ this used be a fun house! }  

It's sort of just occurred to me that it's been almost two weeks since I last updated LJ. I'm sure I meant to do it way before now but it seems like something else always came up. There was Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (in which the good parts were brilliant and the bad parts were terrible), then I got sick (I claim a cold, my workmates claim a cross between the plague and swine flu ;D, either way everyone survived), then there was LFCC (which was ace in so many ways, even if I couldn't fully enjoy it due to aforementioned sickness), then I came home and feel like I haven't had the time to do much of anything. Which is very strange because I don't recall being exceptionally busy or stressed either at or outside of work. Hmmm. Makes me wonder just what the hell I've been doing for two weeks because I sure as hell have nothing to show for my unexpected hiatus O_o...

...so, umm, what have I missed?
.
.

ps. I hear Torchwood is getting a fourth season. Interesting. Theories on what we could expect? I hear Ianto shall be rising from his grave in the first episode. Really he was just in a state of hibernation. Honest!

pps. The new Doctor Who "The Waters of Mars" looks way awesome, omg. I'm so psyched for it. That and DT & JB's antics at comic-con endear them to me so hard. I haven't laughed quite so much with JB in a while and his whole fanboy flail/faint was just superb XD

ppps. Does anyone know about these Supernatural spoilers that everyone is hinting about but no one is actually talking about because everyone's being all spoiler-phobic for some reason and damnit but I just want to know!? XD I suspect I probably know all of the good ones, but it's hard to tell with everyone being all mum on the matter.

pppps. I've signed up for two fanfic challenges. One Supernatural. One Torchwood. You can all point and laugh at me when I fail to complete either of them. Trying to prove I can actually write really just ends up with me proving that I can't actually write. It's a vicious circle but apparently one I refuse to get out of. Woe.

OMG, Zombie!Ianto would be too cool in too many ways. Oh course he'd go off looking for brains....

Yeah, I think I need a nap. Mind's broken now.

I know what you mean about time passing, seeming to be busy, and yet nothing really to show for it. That kind of sucks, doesn't it? But I'm glad you're feeling better and survived your plague/swine flu cold. I've called in sick from work for the past two days, not because I'm really sick (although I'm claiming stomach flu), but because I'm just mentally fried. I'm starting to feel a little bit better, though. I think it's been a rough two weeks all around.

Well, I'm looking forward to your fics. I have faith in your writing.

*hugs*

::giggles:: zombie!Ianto could be fun... so long as he could be programmed to hold off on the brain munching long enough to be a team member again ;) tehehe

Yeah, that exactly! it's kind of been a "blink-and-miss-it" in regards to the last couple of weeks and I honestly cannot recall what I've been doing in that time :S ...oops? lol. Aww, poor baby! I hope you're feeling a bit better? It's good sometimes to just do that and get a few days to completely mind-melt before having to face the worl again ::snugs you:: fingers crossed you'll get an easier time of life soon, eh?

X) thanks! I just keep hearing myself saying how I'll write stuff and how determined I am to finish fics, but how I never actually do, or at least never get them to any kind of postable state. ...If you find my muse, you'll send him along, right? lol

*hugs* there are a lot of germs out there at the moment. My boss has been sneezing on me today and I'm wondering if she's given me a cold!

I don't think you really missed loads. TW fandom is still going OMG he's dead and America has had it now too.

I'm waiting for Matthew to shake off the piggyflu so I can see Harry Potter!

oh dear, hubby has swine flu? how are you doing? fingers crossed you won't catch anything serious between your man and your boss! heh.

TW fandom is doing my box in to be frank. It's not the fact that everyone's still all up in the air over it, it's more that they're almost all being so horrible about the whole thing but think they're justified in their immature reactions. UGH. I'm steering clear for a while, methinks!

You'll enjoy HP! I did, especially for the Snape parts ;) hehe

Potter = win

Torchwood - heard that too but I'm taking it with a handful of salt atm

Who looks AWESOME. Want. Like now. Barrowman/Tennant was epic squee and LOL. I've been trying to find a JB flail icon but can't :( Plenty of the kiss though :D

I was trying to stay spoiler free for SPN but then the power of Mister Master Misha meant I ended up watching the panel from SDCC and seeing the preview clip from 5x01 and hearing all the spoilers from there.

I will not laugh or point. I will cheer you on. If I can find some pom-poms that is ;D

Snape = <33

I'm more scratching my head wondering wtf they're going to do with it if I'm honest. haha. apparently there's talk of BBCAmerica taking it over? Who knows. The thought doesn't bother me nearly as much as it once would have. I think we've had "our" Torchwood (and frankly it'll never be the same without the team, all of them). So it might be nice to see a fresher version of the whole thing. ::shrugs:: who knows!

As for the JB/DT, you can find one of him doing his flaily/faint [ here ] if that's what you're looking for? It makes me grin every time I watch it, hehe.

Spoiler free?! YOU!? Whatever for! :P ...besides, who else am I meant to squee with when we start hearing things about Castiel and whorehouses?! ;) ...lemme know if you seriously don't want to be spoiled though and I'll keep mum!

Aww, thanks! My SPN fic is pretty much all planned out now thanks to your help so I just need a good run at writing it one night this week and I'll be sorted! ...maybe.

A season four? I'm intrigued and also a little disappointed; I'm not sure where they're going to go with that.
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ S3 \\ Last Kisscs_whitewolf on July 28th, 2009 10:13 pm (UTC)
Same here actually. I've had a comment saying that it's possible it'll be taken over by BBCAmerica and I'm thinking that maybe it'll be a good thing. I sort of don't want them to try anything else with "our" team (or rather what's left of them). And I think maybe the only way to continue would be to shift it's digs to another Torchwood (aka Torchwood America), what do you think?

Still. We'll see what the BBC say if they decide to confirm things I suppose.

*hugs you very hard* I was just thinking I should email/text you if you were okay, you hadn't posted on anywhere since LFCC! I was worried! LOL!

Oh go you on the Fanfic front! I'll cheerlead you along! :)

I've not seen anything new regarding SPN (Spoilers! Am I not looking in the right place?!?) or the new DW!

The JB/DT kiss, yeah that just had me grinning all day! XD

Glad to see you have posted, I can stop worrying now! *hugs*

::clings tight:: Aww I'm sorry to have worried you! It certainly wasn't my intention at all :(( ...I just honestly don't know what I've been doing with myself instead of being on here with you guys. It's an unnerving feeling to be quite honest. But I'm back now so no need to fret :)

Fingers crossed I'll actually manage to churn out something decent. I'm so out of practice, omg!

...asdfghjk how can you not know any spoilers for SPN!? Woman! ...shall I link you up with all the ones I've currently found? :D

...ASDFGHJK how you've missed the new DW stuff is even more frightening! ...are you sure *you* haven't been away from LJ too long? :P hehehe That you know about the kiss sort of makes up for this infraction though ;)

::snugs some more::

I may know what it is:S But I don't know if the SPN spoiler is a spoiler, or the one you are looking for:S
Campaspe: Supernatural \\ Dean&Castiel; &cs_whitewolf on July 28th, 2009 10:17 pm (UTC)
Tell me whatever you know! :D I'm a complete spoiler-whore for SPN. I only start avoiding spoilers once an episode has aired until I've seen it. But until then it's all free game ;) hehe. I may be more up to date than I think I am, but it never helps to know just incase!

::glomps:: Missed you!

Would love a series 4, not believing any of it though until the Beeb officialy announce it.

Yay for DW, and also loved that kiss!

Don't watch Supernatural.

and Big Bang? I'll have my pom poms out XD
Campaspe: Crossover \\ Ianto hold Eightcs_whitewolf on July 28th, 2009 10:20 pm (UTC)
::snugs:: And I you!

Shaz mentions the possibility of it being a "Torchwood: America" instead of returning to the UK. It sort of goes with all the other rumours we've been hearing as far as RTD is concerned, so who knows? ...I think I'd maybe prefer that than have RDT try to do anything else to "our" show, if that makes any sense? I'll watch it where ever it's set but a fresher, newer show may be better?

:O how have I not yet managed to get you into my show!? EVEN RTD's BEEN PIMPING IT, WOMAN!!! XD

...yes. Big Bang. Though I suspect I've failed it already. I'm going with the Eight/Ianto adventure I have though, so who knows? I'll be cheering lots for you anyway :D ...started yet?

I heard about Torchwood but I don't buy it until something official is released. Also there is now lots of speculation that it's moving to BBCA due to America announcing that.

HAVE YOU SEEN THE CHRISTMAS SPECIAL TRAILER OMG JIZZ.

Also, I'm seeing HP tomorrow. I do not care if it is terrible because it has loads of Draco :)
Campaspe: Harry Potter \\ Severus; I should care bcs_whitewolf on July 28th, 2009 10:23 pm (UTC)
I'd heard something about RDT wanting to work over there more, so that would make sense. In a way I'd maybe prefer that. I love his work but am not quite sure he could continue with "our" show after the way the entire team was lost.

...The Waters of Mars is the Christmas Special right? lol. I just know I've seen that one and am way excited for the "companions" and the "knocker" ;)

DRACO IS AWESOME THOUGH SNAPE IS BETTER ;) ...Draco was most definitely one of the AWESOME parts of the movie, you'll be suitably impressed I'm sure :D

Yeah. I liked it more the first time because it was new and shiny. The second time that wee boy was annoying me too much to appreciate more than the Snape parts ;) hehe. Although his raising his arm(wand) for Dumbledore was hysterical XD

Mmmm irn bru and cookies could actually help ;) they never go wrong at least! heheh

lmao. That's what we're all wondering too! XD ...the BBC haven't confirmed anything but RTD is very keen it looks like, so who even knows what they'll come up with if they do.
