Joyous News!

I love Jack again. If you don't know why, go find and watch this week's Torchwood ep.

That is all. :-) 

ETA, a few minutes later, because I'm positively squeeful and can't stop thinking about it: No, really. I love Jack again.

I mean, he finally did something in a Torchwood ep that I think the Doctor would be really proud of. He ultimately failed... but he tried to save the alien manatee thingie because he knew it was the right thing to do. (And I so, so want to write a fic where he doesn't fail. The plot bunnies are stirring restlessly...)

I adore the way JB played it, as well. Those scenes where Jack actually shows emotion in the face of the alien manatee thingie's pain... just... Jack is human again.

And then he respected Gwen's decision at the end of the ep, with a tad less of the cold, heartless bastard posturing that he's used so many times before when confronting the team. He still growled at her... but he respected her decision.

And nothing to do with this week's ep... but oh god... the previews for next week... my plot bunnies are having premonitions. Precognitive plot bunnies... I am doomed.

But I love Jack again. So it's all good! :-)

*snuggles Jack* I had the same reaction! After Sleeper, I was feeling a bit down about Torchwood, but this episode rekindled my faith.

*feeds your bunnies*

Anything to get more fic from you!

I saw 'Adam' this morning. The plot bunnies have now grown to epic proportions. I'll be posting about that (and other rambles) in a minute.

This on top of the 'Meat' plot bunnies.

Am I going to wind up writing a series full of (probably unconnected) post-eps?

::hides in fear from the rabbid, expanding plot bunnies, but grabs the Growing Pains bunny and carries it along::

Dude, wait until you see 'Reset'! You're going to flip. Completely.

*grabs extra bunnies and follows you*

You say that almost as if 'Reset' has already aired... am I somehow a week behind? Or are you just speculating based on the previews/spoilers?

Because... zomg. The plot bunnies love Martha. And they love the vague impressions of 'Reset' I've got from the preview clips.

::looks over shoulder, eyes widening at the pursuing extra bunnies... and trips over her own two feet::

No, it aired on BBC Three last night. I didn't realize it until it started popping up. The episode was available for dl. :)

LOL The bunnies are after you. It doesn't help that I'm pushing them along. :D

WAIT A MINUTE! I thought 'Adam' aired last night. Did they air two eps yesterday, or am I really a week behind?

Because either way, then I get two TW eps in one week! :-)

::is covered in a swarm of bunnies, may never be seen again::

Sorry, I should have been more clear. :) BBC Two broadcast 'Adam' and BBC Three previewed 'Reset' immediately following. Weird, huh? Dude, you must see 'Reset'. Have a stick at the ready to beat back the plot bunnies. ;)

That was an odd thing for them to do... but I am not complaining. I've sent my download-seeker (aka Mom) off to look for it. :-)

Meanwhile, the plot bunnies I already have are nibbling away at my brain. I've kept my hold on the one responsible for Growing Pains, so cross your fingers for an update this weekend on that one.

And a 'Meat' rewrite soon after that.

And probably an 'Adam' post-ep after that.

And god (and the bunnies) only know what after that.

In the absence of DW, TW has taken over. That was probably their evil plan... and boy has it worked. But the problem is that my DW plot bunnies are getting trampled by the new TW bunnies! It's times like these I wish I was independently wealthy so I could spend my life watching TV and writing fanfic. :-)

If you can't find it, let me know and I'll upload it for you. :) Sharing the TW love, my friend!

I've got every available part of my body crossed for an update of Growing Pains this weekend. ;)

TW has been lovely for filling the time while waiting for DW. I'm actually thoroughly enjoying this season of TW. :)

If we'd just get out of graduate school, we'd probably have tons of free time! Of course that's not coming any time soon for me so I'll have to settle for stealing a few free minutes here and there.

Sorry I seem to have missed the weekend... but the part is mostly written and I have the day off tomorrow. So keep crossing your... whatever... and Jack will be with you momentarily. :-)

I did get to watch 'Reset' and nearly died under the weight of the resulting plot bunnies. But I'm sort of on overload now, with no time to catch up, so I'm going to let the new bunnies wait to see what happens next on TW.

Meanwhile... Growing Pains, catching up on the flist, 'Meat' rewrite, 'Adam' tag, passing this semesters classes. Priorities, yeah...
Feb. 19th, 2008 07:22 pm (UTC)
Oops... silly work computer, not magically knowing who I am...
Feb. 20th, 2008 03:36 am (UTC)
*snickers* Priorities? What's that?

'Reset' sent me for a loop. I'm still trying to recover from the shock of it all.

Yes, everything's still crossed waiting for that update. ;)
Feb. 21st, 2008 10:47 pm (UTC)
Priorities... those things that one's parents/professors/boss always lecture one about getting backwards. I'm not sure I've ever really figured it out properly... :-)

Still working on part 4... honest...
Feb. 21st, 2008 10:49 pm (UTC)
I've got faith in you!

Feb. 7th, 2008 11:55 pm (UTC)
I agree: I loved him in this. He's found his compassion again!

Could do without the drooling over Gwen, but my Jack is back. Phew!
Feb. 14th, 2008 08:55 pm (UTC)
I'm not so hot about the Jack/Gwen, either, especially after a few certain lines in 'Adam'... but in 'Meat' I found it relatively easy to ignore. As long as they don't do anything stupid, I don't mind that they have a bit of UST. As long as it says U, because Jack has resolved his sexual tension with pretty much everyone/thing else in the galaxy, and we need some variety. That... and it would be so stupid of them.

But.. Jack is back! Yay! :-)

This is adaliazandra's fic journal, which she hadn't planned to use very often. That plan has since been defenestrated in favor of posting fic update notices and rambles about DW and TW.

If you note the spiffy paid-account layout, that's because nightrider101 is simply the most wonderful person ever! :-)

If I seem to have disappeared off the face of the Internet, it's because I probably did. I don't actually *like* suddenly ignoring my LJ friends and leaving my stories hanging, though, so odds are I'll be back eventually.
