Okay, so I've been browsing this PDF of Save Ianto batshittery (I'm not saying the content is batshittery, the content is basically ALL OF THE INTERNET'S opinions about bringing back Ianto, the fact that someone actually put it together, though, really shows a disturbed mind at work). I've only managed to lightly skim about 100 pages of this 400 page (YOU'RE READING THAT CORRECTLY) and already I've been blockquoted and my graphics have been used and I DON'T EVEN SUPPORT THE SAVE IANTO JONES CAMPAIGN. Where do I go to complain about this bullshit?

See, and the reason I don't support the Save Ianto Jones campaign, is that it SO VAST AND SPRAWLING as to encompass all these sorts of levels of complete insanity. It's actually too big a project, encompassing ANYONE who is passionate about the subject, and allowing anyone with the inclination to make four hundred page pdf files the opportunity to speak on behalf of the campaign and all its members. And if people like this AREN'T speaking on behalf of the Save Coffee Boy campaign, then I'm afraid the Save Coffee Boy campaign isn't doing an awful lot to make that clear. (Going members-only, by the way? That's totally weird and makes you look more batshit than the vast majority of you are.)

And, you see, this is why I asked people to give money to ponies instead.

I went to post a comment somewhere and found I'd been banned from someone's journal. I've never been banned from anyone's journal before, and I quite like the person in question and don't recall ever having had a disagreement with them of any kind. Random defriendings by people who I thought were my actual friends I can deal with, but banning? Wow. Ouch.

Speaking of which, this is kind of where I am at the moment:
  • There's not a lot of joy for me left in Whovian fandom. I'll probably post something later about how much I hated Waters of Mars. I have no desire to watch anything RTD has produced or DT stars in, and I am only just managing to hold on to a scrap of enthusiasm for when Moffat and Smith come in. I hate Russell, I hate everything he's ever written, I think he's awful. His insistence on bringing all this emotional manpain and trauma into these shows that used to just be a joyful experience for me and, in the case of Who, for my kids, has ruined my fannish experience. I want the last three years of my life back, I wish I'd never started watching Torchwood, I wish I'd stopped watching Who. I don't need television that pisses me off and makes me sad, that's not what I watch television for. Fuck you Russell, I hope LA chews you up and spits you out and fucks you in the ass with a pointy stick.

  • Ianto did make me happy for quite a few years, which is why I'm working on a last epic picspam of my favourite teaboy doing shit. I hope to have it done in a week or two.

  • I'm also working on something of a personal project celebrating Torchwood Series One and Two, which I hope to tell you more about in the coming weeks. Or maybe I'll just abandon it.

  • I was hoping to do a Christmas push on the Ianto Jones Wants a Pony campaign, but the Lluest Horse and Pony Trust's continued inability to update me is starting to annoy me a bit, so maybe I'll leave it. After Christmas, I'm done promoting it because I think I've done enough. I'll leave it up, of course.

  • Any takers for [livejournal.com profile] ninja_teaboy may give me shout here or in PM. I'm putting it up for adoption per January 1st. If there's no-one interested, I'll close it down.

  • Oh, in case you were wondering, no. If there is a new series of Torchwood, I won't be watching it, as I don't really like Gwen, or Jack. I liked Tosh and Ianto and I quite enjoyed disliking Owen. I liked Ianto, I liked Tosh, I liked the Hub, the embossed SUV, the pteranodon, the old ladies, the poodles, the victorian lesbianism, the cyberbikinis and that stupid fucking invisible lift. In fact, I loved all those things. Apparently I loved those things far too much. Those things are all gone, so there's nothing for me to come back to. Not that there will be a new series.

  • It's been really fun, people, but if you've friended me for Torchwood content, please, feel free to defriend me in the coming weeks, I won't be offended. I am completely spent. Done. Thanks, Rusty.

Okay, so first, I get this HUGE teal deer comment over at Ninja Teaboy about how I'm being derogatory and "rude" about the Save Ianto jones campaign because, wait for it, I referred to the people involved as "kiddoes" in the sentence "those Save Ianto Jones kiddoes are handing out postcards and shit and I feel really lazy," in which I was referring to my own half-arsed approach to the pony campaign, which mostly consists of me shouting "PONIES!" every once in a while and not much else. The comment is promptly deleted and its author has a whine in her journal about how I told her to fuck off, which I did not, and seriously, once again, I get the feeling that my fandom dealings all seem to be with 12-year-olds lately. Grow the fuck up already.

Then this appears at the anon meme (yes, I was trawling the anon meme for gossip from Hub 3 OF WHICH THERE IS NONE, dammit), and IT'S THOSE FUCKING BEARS AGAIN. WHAT THE FUCK IS IT WITH THOSE FUCKING BEARS??? See, for me, it's not even so much the bears, but that strange juxtaposition of these chicks with the bears who I would assume are also the people who write and devour NC17 m/m porn. That combination just does not compute with me.

And then of course, I get a fucking story posted to the Teaboy which is about fucking sentient infant towels?????? What the fuck am I supposed to do with that sort of shit? Am I just supposed to go around telling everyone to piss off out of my comm? Because that's what it's coming to, honestly. I am on the verge of giving up on life.

There's a party going on at the Teaboy for the £2000 mark for Ianto's pony charity. Two things I would like to stress, for fun and for the record.

1) Ianto Jones Wants A Pony is a charitable fund set up to thank GDL for his loveliness as Ianto. It is NOT a charitable fund set up to in any way endorse any campaign to bring Ianto back to our screens. I'm not invested in any such campaign and I'd like to clear that up again for the record. THANK YOU ALL for your donations, I hope they keep coming, and please, whatever your opinion on the matter of Bringing Back Ianto, give the ponies your support. But there's a reason I set up a rival campaign to the CiN one, and that reason was to set up a campaign where people could show their love without feeling like they had to support a drive to return Ianto to Torchwood, that was and is its main purpose.

Sorry I was cryptically chirpy last night. I received a few nice messages in my LJ inbox after I posted something at who_anon, from completely random people not even on my friendslist. Umm, so yeah, that was a really pleasant surprise and did, in fact, restore my faith in the fact that most people out there are decent and nice. Yay for people! Oh, sure, there's at least one person on the meme who likes to shout at me and tell me I'm a bad mother because I pointed and laughed at some shit photoshoppery a few times like a year ago, but that person can go fuck themselves with a pointy stick. We all have our own beds to make and lie in and I'm happy and comfy in mine.

Yes, yes, yes, I'll do a picspam, I promise. Life has been getting in the way.

ETA: Oh, yes, AND, AND, AND!! The other reason I was so happy was that my email account doesn't actually get all the notifications about Ianto's Pony donations (I have no idea why, I get them randomly, some donations I get an email and some I don't), but it passed the GBP 1900 mark yesterday. I wanted to get 2000 by Christmas and then let it lie, and that actually seems to be an achievable goal now. YAY PEOPLE!! I am coming to snog all of you. With tongues.

This is what I'm talking about when I say I love you guys.

I hate fandom sometimes (not you guys, obviously... other people), but then there's this kind of shit.

John Barrowman on season 4: "We gotta get Jack a new piece of ass."


Link to interview, courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] forgiveninasong, here.

I don't really have any words left about the way what we were watching has been twisted beyond all recognition by those involved in making it. I really, honestly, just have no words left for this. I am completely talked out about my rage and my incredulity and my whatever else it is I've got that I can't find the words for anymore. I was watching a different show, dudes, a show with respect for the characters and the relationships and the world that was created and the messages that were sent. How did I let that happen? When did that happen? What a fucking joke that was. Ha ha.

It's no wonder I want to buy the man a pony, really. For fuck's sake, he's been through enough shit.

Random things:
  • I like fandom because it brings me joy and if it can't bring me joy, then I can't be bothered with it. Sometimes I need to rant and rave about things because I need to get rid of the shit in my head that doesn't bring me joy. RTD doesn't bring me joy, he sucked the joy out of Who for me a good two seasons ago and now he's sucked the joy and life out of Torchwood as well. Sorry if that opinion offends you, I don't agree with the opinion of everyone I talk to, and I don't expect everyone I talk to to agree with mine. Let's agree to disagree and leave it at that. If you can't do that, then fine. Go away. Fandom =/= srs bsns. Is telly shit.

  • [livejournal.com profile] kelticbanshee ia looking for transcripts of the pre-CoE interviews at NY ComicCon with Eve Myles and Euros Lyn, and at Torchsong with GDL, JB and whoever else was there (well... there-ish). If you were there, give her a shout, guys. It's important research and that.

  • Things that do give me joy: £480 pounds for a pony already! You people rock my world and I fucking love you. Honestly. THAT'S what I'M talking about.

  • Can I just reiterate for all you people who are all excited about Torchwood Series 4 now: JACK IS NOT IN IT. Mark my words. When it happens and you get all sads about that, I'll point back here at this post and laugh just a little bit. But not AT you, WITH you. And then we will cry and have a drink together like friends, yeah? Because I do love you all. Really, I do.

So... you don't want to give to charity to soothe James Moran's girlie flouncing ego? Don't want to give Russell the horn by donating to Save Ianto Jones? Don't care about cancer research?


You should.


Is for real, not luls. Well, also for luls. But yes, it's a real page I created for [livejournal.com profile] ninja_teaboy, with kind permission from the Lluest Horse and Pony Trust, of which GDL is a patron. My post on the subject is here.

Think of what we could achieve, people:

(That's a unicorn, but you get the gist)
