Having that feeling of TURCHWAD SQUEEE back, without actually having the desire to watch any new Torchwood. Okay, so I am, apparently, an easily manipulated fangirl. I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER since House of the Dead, it's downright weird. But, obviously, I'm still not watching Miracle Day because I didn't much like it. (That IS the only reason, by the way, I could claim I'm doing it because I ABHOR RTD and EVERYTHING HE STANDS FOR and I REFUSE TO GIVE HIM THE SATISFACTION OMG, but the truth of the matter is, that if MD had been Olde Torchwood and they'd suddenly found a pterodactyl and made themselves a new underground volcano lair base and embossed a different and even more ostentatious car, I'd have watched it big time, Ianto or no Ianto. But it's not, it's that po-faced CoE NuTorchwood and I didn't like it the first time around.)

So, anyway, I'm doing screencaos at the mo, but for some reason I am also feeling a mite nostalgic and wistful and shit like that, so here's more pictures.



That there is, I believe, the first picture I ever posted on this here journal of Ianto Jones. I believe I posted it to illustrate some sort of point I was attempting to make about Gareth David-Lloyd's mouth and how enthralled I was by it.

Random choice from the archives:



I post this not because of Ianto's hilarious fayce in this picture, but because it contains a slice of Tosh's boob. Since I've started screencapping Series 2, I've become kind of enchanted by them. They're really, really round. You should have totally hit that, Harper. Idiot. I also must add that while watching S2, depite the Jack/Ianto kissings and such, I kind of secretly totally shipped Ianto/Tosh. I didn't mention it much because shipping a guy and a chick wasn't really the done thing in TW fandom, ever. But I can come out now, I totally thought Ianto should have dumped Jack's sorry arse for Tosh's fabulously perky tits.

My final thought:



THERE WAS NEVER ENOUGH DIRTYBADWRONG SERIAL KILLER IANTO FANFICTION IN THIS FANDOM. I STILL WANT IT, GODDAMMIT.

You may now return to your regularly scheduled whatever.

Ohhhkay, so, here we go... watch out, there's analysis and not much in the way of rage and yes, I cried, so there's that as well...

Spoilers for that radio play you may have heard about. WHEN COME BACK BRING IANTO PIE. )

I'm still not watching Miracle Day. I gave it the benefit of the doubt, hoping it might spark my interest, but my Torchwood died in CoE the moment that pterodactyl was forgotten about by the guy that created the damn show. But I can sleep a bit more easily at night right now, and I'm thankful for that. It was a great ride while it lasted. And Ianto's back on my header, he's never leaving again. Except at Christmas. Christmas is for Clark Griswold. Obviously.

Ummm...

Yeah, okay...

WARNING: SPOILERS for House of the Dead even though I haven't actually listened to it yet. )

*sigh*
I don't know. I guess I'll listen to it tomorrow when I've got some spare time. BUT HEY, GUESS WHAT, I DON'T CARE WHAT CRUMBS YOU PUT IN YOUR SHITTY LITTLE TUCKED-AWAY-IN-THE-CANON-CORNER RADIO PLAY, YOU COULD HAVE TOLD US IANTO'S AN IMMORTAL TIME LORD FOR ALL I CARE, I STILL WILL NOT BE WATCHING YOUR PIECE OF SHIT YANK REBOOT SHOW SIMPLY BECAUSE IT'S REALLY QUITE, QUITE BAD, SO BAD LUCK THERE, TRY HARDER NEXT TIME.

So much capslock lately, man, what's that all about?

(You want the truth? I've not listened to it because I'm not alone and I know it will make me CRY AND CRY AND CRY AND CRY AND CRY because I will lap it up big time. And I'm okay with that, I think.)

Aww.

Remember the days when Torchwood shit was fun and funny? I just friended (re-re-friended probably?) someone who referred to Miracle Day as PO-FACED DRAMA (yeah, you know who you are). DUDES, REMEMBER WHEN IT WASN'T ALL FUCKING PO-FACED DRAMA?

Like, ummm, why THE FUCK did I make this lolcat macro thing:























No, I'm not lj-cutting it, so don't even dare ask.

I have decided I AM going to do the second half of my IANTO JONES IS ON THE PHONE picspam which I never finished due to ennui. This is, of course, in honour of Torchwood: Same Shit Different Day, which, now that I know for sure I don't need to watch it, has left me with a lot of free time on my hands for the next nine weeks. Plus: IT'S IANTO FUCKING JONES I DON'T NEED ANY OTHER REASON.

Sorry about the capslocking, I'm not ragey or anything, just tired and not in the mood for bold and italic tags. It's been one of those days.

I'd say it probably involves some revelation about Jack knowing that Ianto's going to die. This may or may not take the form of some random fandom dig, again. That's just my speculation.

I haven't heard the last one yet, to be fair, I'm waiting for a spare 45 mins. Which will shortly become a spare hour and a half and then two fifteen. Damn children.

BTW, If you've heard stuff by the time you read this, feel free (in other words PLEASE) to spoil me in the comments, I'd kind of like to know the reeling Ianto revelations before I listen, I'm not in the mood for new IantoCanon if it's going to be Debenhams-style ShitCanon and I will happily just ignore it.

Ah, right, okay, look, guys, my friends, I love you all, I really do and I wish you loads of fun and squee and all those things that people do with telly that they're enjoying, but I thought that was AWFUL, and not GOOD AWFUL like Bonekickers, but GOD AWFUL like Outcasts awful.

I seriously, don't know what to do now, because a part of me was kind of hoping I might secretly enjoy it and I really did not. (The fact that that blonde chick's strange strangulated back of the throat and up the nose voice makes me want to pierce my eardrums with knitting needles didn't help, I must admit.) As I predicted, I don't like Gwen or Jack enough to want to find out what happens next. I don't want to piss people off by not liking it and not having any desire to watch any more, but I know I will and so be it. Not liking it in any way, has also made me sadder than I thought it would make me. Fuck.

When CoE happened, I suppose I sort of went over a cliff like Wile E Coyote and now, watching Miracle Day, it's like looking down and only just realising that the ground disappeared way back there.

YEAH, ALRIGHT, THAT'S A SHITTY, FLIPPANT POP CULTURE METAPHOR, BUT THAT'S HOW IT FEELS, OKAY?

I've let my paid account expire. No, it wasn't an accident or anything, I didn't want it anymore. I've ceased enjoying LJ fandom, Torchwood fandom in particular. Warring factions and wank that used to perhaps have the potential to amuse me now just depress me and make me turn the computer off.

I don't want to harsh any buzz or piss off people who are excited about TW New Whatever (sorry, I've forgotten, enlighten me?) so I no longer comment on the posts of people who are excited about it. I don't want to wallow in the misery of those who want Old Torchwood back, because wallowing is pointless and it won't resurrect the embossed car or the underground lair or the dinosaur, so I no longer comment on the posts of people who are wallowing. Mentioning that you miss Ianto makes you an insane bot, so I no longer comment on the posts of those people who, like me, still miss Ianto. I no longer mock those who send coffee because I don't care. I don't really care about any of it anymore. As a first fandom experience goes, it wasn't a great one. Add to that the bits where it got personal and nah, this journal can go belly up for all I care. I've met some lovely people, there's that. And that's quite nice. I suppose meeting lovely people, some that I would consider personal friends, though I don't know what they'd consider me to be, makes the entire experience worthwhile. And it's probably the reason I haven't deleted this journal.

Also, I can't bring myself to delete it because there's pretty pictures of Ianto in it. Quite a few of them. Plus, you know, two months from now I'll probably spam everyone left on my flist with lines and lines of academic Mad Men meta or something.

More likely, it'll be a picspam of Joan's fabulous breasts and arse and all the rest of her.

But yeah, just so you know. Not dead or anything. Just resting.

Edited to add a gif I stole from [livejournal.com profile] cirrocumulus which makes me happy in the face. Don't ask me why.



Also: Peggy/Don, yes, are you with me? I am going there. And I don't even like Don, but still, it could work for me. See! There's the meta coming out already.

I'm so sorry, Ianto.

But my undying love for Dr. Sam Beckett will never be surpassed by anyone. Ever. Tough cookies, babe.
