Okay, okay, so my dearth of entries this year has prompted me to actually be game and participate in a meme for once, mostly because I think it would be kinda cool to see other people's if anyone wants to participate. I love wallpapers. HOWEVER, though I am pasting the meme as I found it, I'm not crazy about rule number 1. It's kinda bossy for my tastes. Feel free to ignore it. In fact, screw that. I've changed it.

1. Anyone who looks at this entry has to can feel free to post this meme and their current wallpaper at their LiveJournal OR NOT.
2. Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
3. Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on!



1. It's Doctor Who.
2. Did anyone expect differently?
3. It was pretty much going to be that or Torchwood.
4. And considering I just got myself a package of Doctor Who Companion action figures, DW won out this week (though Jack is there).
5. I was changing my wallpaper a couple days ago, as I often do, and this one just caught my attention.

The wallpaper was made by the talented [livejournal.com profile] deedeedee123 . Go to her journal and devour her work.

This is only my third journal entry of 2009. I'm not exactly prolific, am I?

My recent visit to Cardiff was very Whoniversey and I decided to put together a collection of particularly Doctor Who/Torchwood related pics. The photos are mine, the screencaps come from The Medusa Cascade.

All of the pictures will get somewhat bigger if you click on them, and the commentary contains spoilers for Torchwood: Children of Earth and may contain spoilers for any episodes of Doctor Who or Torchwood that come before that. Enjoy!

I thought I'd drop a line here on my journal about a story I'm cowriting with [livejournal.com profile] tainted_crimson .  It's about Buffy taking a job at Torchwood after the events of Torchwood series 2.



The story so far can be found at our story-writing comm: [livejournal.com profile] sobuffymetjack . The first 8 chapters are up.

I don't usually post ANYTHING about myself on this journal, but I got major kudos at work today. And why? What earned me this uncommon outburst of appreciation? It's because my filing system is awesome and has superpowers.

And so, in celebration, I offer you Ianto Jones and Donna Noble: Bad-Ass Secretaries Saving The World.

(Not that I'm in their league. I can find specific payroll records from 2006 in 5 seconds flat, but I don't own a pteradactyl and the Ood don't sing my story.)

This story was inspired by [livejournal.com profile] pike2 's spooky story challenge, found here. I know it will pale in comparison to her brilliant Angelystor, but I really liked the idea, so I decided to run with it. Here is the result:

I got myself the Torchwood soundtrack yesterday afternoon and have been listening to it pretty much nonstop whenever I'm on my computer since then.  Hence more Barrowman-y goodness. Obviously. *Ahem*.

 Title: Questions
Author: [personal profile] magicom
Rating: G, I would say. Maybe PG for implied or potential smuttiness?
Disclaimer: I don't own Torchwood or any of its characters. No money being made.
Paring/Characters: Jack/Ianto with Martha and Gwen.
Spoilers: Mild spoilers for TW Reset and DW Journey's End.
Summary: To paraphrase Our Lady Peace: Word games are just sex without the mess. 
Warnings: It's kinda fluffy. Is that something that requires some degree of warning?
Notes: I realize that Martha even being in the Hub after Journey's End may likely be Jossed by the time Series 3 airs, but I like her perspective on our boys and their games.

Maria is OVER! *SOB* What will I do without my weekly dose of The Barrowman telling off the other judges? I guess I will make wallpapers.

Here are two I've done recently. The first one is Ianto Jones from Torchwood, as played by the  charming and talented Gareth David-Lloyd. The second is John Barrowman, sort of a colour companion piece to the B&W one I did, which you can find by scrolling down the recent entries.

I spent the weekend at Polaris 22, a sci-fi/fantasy convention in Toronto. It was AWESOME. That's all I can say through the two-and-a-half days of squee.

In honour of the season finale of Doctor Who (which, btw, the wait for part two is destroying my soul) and the CBC's How To Solve A Problem Like Maria (admitting to watching a reality show is also destroying my soul) : The beautiful and multi-talented John Barrowman. Anyone who can make me watch a reality show by being onscreen for maybe five minutes out of an hour has charisma beyond the ability of human science to measure it. Maybe he really does have 51st century pheromones.

You know the way this works. Click away at the thing to make it big.

... since I finished watching Season Two. I like that British TV does 9-13 episode seasons because ideas tend to get stale much less quickly... but the downside is you only have 9-13 episodes to watch until you have to WAIT for more new ones again. Wait until who-knows-when, in fact, because the Beeb doesn't announce things like if they're going ahead with another season until it's practically time to film it. Luckily, Doctor Who is only half way through its season, so I still have my Whoniverse fix (David Tennant as The Doctor is still my fav!) and I'll even get some Captain Jack goodness when John Barrowman returns for the season finale. I think that's confirmed and not a rumour anymore. I don't know. I find I enjoy the shows more if I stay a little bit out of the loop :P And yes, I know that Torchwood is cheese, but it's yummy cheese like cheddar or gouda or that cheese-like-substance they put on Kraft dinner and cheezies.

Since I have no more new Torchwood to watch right now, I have made Torchwood wallpapers celebrating my favourite relationship in the show: Jack and Ianto! They're way too adorable together. I hope the writers don't feel the need for them to break up next season for dramatic shit. They have a rift through time and space to get dramatic shit from. I'd like to see this relationship develop more next year, not less - especially since it's mostly been on the sidelines or in the background so far. They're too cute for that, dammit! </rant>

I recently went up to Hamilton to visit some friends who live in the city. Since I had time on my hands between arriving there and meeting up with them, I visited a couple more RE2 shooting locations. As with my previous entry involving locations shot in Toronto, the "real life" pictures of Hamilton are all mine, so please do not reproduce or distribute them without my permission. I also took the screencaps from the DVD myself, for illustrative purposes. Click on any of the pictures to make them bigger.

First location: Raccoon City Street Where Carlos and Co. Fought Zombies (aka John Street North, by the King Street PizzaPizza)

On walking up John St from the parking lot towards King St E, I immediately recognized this part of the street:

 
as the location where they shot all of the footage of Carlos and his men fighting zombies in the street and blowing shit up, like this:

But really, no back-up was coming. They had no choice but to blow up John Street, I reflected... then ate lunch in the PizzaPizza. Mmmmmm PizzaPizza pizza. PizzaPizza veggie pizza and chocolate milk is zombie-fighting fuel, okay?

On my recent visit to Toronto to appear on CBC's Test The Nation, I had a free Monday waiting for my 7pm train and spent it wandering around the city, including filming locations used in Resident Evil: Apocalypse. Some photos below. The "real life" pictures of Toronto are all mine, so please do not reproduce or distribute them without my permission. I also took the screencaps from the DVD myself, for illustrative purposes. Click on any of the pictures to make them bigger.

First location (and preview): Ravensgate Bridge (aka The Bloor Viaduct).

I didn't get a chance to go down into the Don Valley to get a side view of the bridge (it was -20 degrees Celsius outside!!), but even so, it's pretty clear that this:


is where they filmed these scenes.

Here is a little manip I did of Alice and Carlos from the Resident Evil series as though they'd sat for a portrait. I used pictures from the Oded Fehr Appreciation Site and MillaFan. Click for full size.

I managed to find some Sleeper Cell caps recently, while surfing the Enchanted Visions gallery. So I've done a couple of Farik wallpapers. It was hard to decide what to do for them. Oded's performance was AMAZING, but Farik was friggin' TERRIFYING.

Here they are - click on them for full size.





The caps (as noted above) are from Enchanted Visions. The quote is from Serenity. Feel free to snag. Comments appreciated.

I've done another Ardeth Bey wallpaper. I just really liked this facial expression out of context. It looks so moody and thoughtful.
