Pathfinder )
There has, of late, been a fair amount of fannish wailing and rending of garments over certain developments in Torchwood: Children of Earth, protests that certain things Should Not Be Done on TV shows where people might have some sort of emotional investment in the characters. Things that, frankly, I have absolutely no problem with whatsoever! But then I thought that, actually, that might have something to do with my early exposure to genre shows, back in the days when spoilers meant reading the Radio Times (which we didn't get). I can remember being upset when Adric died (hey, I was 11!), and then there was the great and glorious (see previous age disclaimer) Blake's 7....

So, here's a fun game! Imagine, if you will, that the same level of fannish entitlement computer and internet access existed back in the days when B7 was first airing. What online reactions and campaigns could we expect to see to each character death? Each replacement character? The destruction of familiar sets? Separations? Solo stories? Random blondes? Never mind the way it all ended! I'll admit to having only hazy memories of much of it, but I know there are folks out there who are much more familiar with it than I am.

Thoughts, rants, wails, rended garments (any of which may, or may not, bear a passing resemblance to certain more recent fannish storms), etc in comments, please. Go on, you know you want to. ;)

(Please feel free to pass on.... :))
Wow. What a week that was....

Spoilery blatherings about 'Torchwood: Children of Earth' )

And now I'm going to bed, there to fight off the bunnies that are now gathering in their uncountable hordes....
Yay! The 2009 TARDIS Big Bang site is now live, with many hefty Who-verse fics and lots of artwork!

For anyone who has been wondering what the heck happened to my usual semi-regular fic posting schedule over the past few months... er, this did. What do you know – apparently I can write long! Novel-length long, as it turns out. There will now follow a lot of catching up with various bits and pieces that have been neglected over the past three months or so....

Archive: Sure, whoever wants it – just let me know where it ends up!
Notes: This was written for the 2009 [livejournal.com profile] tardis_bigbang challenge – the link below goes to their website – and is easily the single longest thing that I've ever produced. The basic idea was one that had been floating around in my brain for a while, but it really took form as I researched the era I was playing with – I had been planning to invent a mad Nazi version of Torchwood, but then found that Himmler had rather beaten me to it! Well, if it was good enough for Indiana Jones.... ;)

Thanks as always to [livejournal.com profile] mimarie for sterling beta work, and also to [livejournal.com profile] kris4n6 and [livejournal.com profile] sffuzzywriter for read-throughs and much-needed encouragement along the way – any remaining weirdnesses (and there are probably a few in my mangling of the German language!) are all mine. Thanks also to [livejournal.com profile] neth_dugan and [livejournal.com profile] wihluta for the illustrations! Feedback of any variety is much appreciated but not compulsory – I'll post anyway! I've suffered for my art, now it's your turn....
