I didn't finally fall asleep until approx. 3:30 AM this morning, and I was back up at 5:00 to get my father up and ready for work. Needless to say that this lead to me feeling like crap for a good portion of the day. So you can only imagine what the following did to me when I found them on my doorstep:

Torchwood: Original Television Soundtrack
Torchwood: The Official Magazine - Yearbook

I already had the soundtrack downloaded via iTunes, but it's still lovely to have a hard copy for safety sake. I also love the picture of Jack on the inside of the booklet.

The main thing that caused me to have an embarrassing fangirl moment was the yearbook; I hadn't even realized it had even been shipped!

Lucy and I had a discussion about her picking up a copy of the yearbook for me when she goes to the Hub convention, and getting it signed by John Barrowman, Gareth David-Lloyd and Naoko Mori. So I was going to cancel my pre-order, and put the cash on that. I guess I'm just going to have to deal with having two copies. Or I could just pass this off to a member of my flist...

Now then, time to discuss the book itself - the outer slipcover's nice, but I prefer it without. I don't like slipcovers on my books - I'm weird like that. There's also pretty pictures - lots and lots of oh so pretty pictures. I especially enjoyed the ones featuring John, Eve, Gareth and James. There's also profiles of the team, a complete episode guide to series two, along with five exclusive short stories (which I haven't read yet).

The shipper in me particularly liked the character profiles; mainly Jack, Gwen and Ianto. I especially enjoyed the following bits:

At Torchwood Jack has always been particularly close to Gwen and Ianto. While he and Gwen continue to dance around their feelings for each other, his romance with Ianto gathers heat - though sometimes the rest of the team would prefer they kept it behind locked doors...

Oh, please. Do you really think that Gwen and Tosh don't enjoy seeing those two locking lips? The 'rest of the team' they're referring to could only be Owen - and I think even he gets a chuckle out of it.


Gwen's world is once again turned upsidedown when Rhys discovers the real nature of her job (Meat). She refuses to give him Jack's amnesia pill, choosing instead to let Rhys remember what he has seen, bringing the couple closer than ever.

This was Gwen's finest moment in the entire series, in my humble opinion. I cheered her on when she stood up to Jack and took Rhys' side. I also felt like bitch-slapping Jack, but we're not gonna go there...


Name: Ianto Jones; Weaknesses: secrecy, stopwatches


Yeah, stopwatches are his weekness alright. That and immortal Time Agents. LMFAO! Oh, how I love you, Mr. Jones.


Initially Jack refused to give him a job, but after Ianto helped him fight a weevil and capture a pterodactyl, Jack was eventually persuaded that he was an essential member of the team (Fragments). Since then he has taken their relantionship to a whole new level...

If causing the brains of fangirls to explode qualifies as taking the relationship to a whole new level, then I agree completely. I mean, come on... Sex amongst the office foliage? Well, it wasn't really sex, but it was well on it's way. :P

And here comes part two. Hold on to your hats, kids. This is where we get down and dirty. Gareth, I'm looking at you. Still, keep in mind that there are no hard feelings, and I'm as big of fan of him as I was before I went to the convention - if not bigger.

Now, before we get started, there are a few things that I would like to say:

First of all, thanks so much to all of you who posted comments on my previous entry. It really meant a lot to me. I would also like to send out a special heart-felt thanks to those of you who tried to reassure me with the notion that I hadn't insulted Gareth. I really thought that I had, and it ate at me quite a bit. So, once again thanks for your input.

Secondly, this was my first convention, and despite a few mishaps, I had a blast.

I had wanted above all to keep my composure and act like a mature fan -- even if I was squeeing on the inside a few times. I also wanted to make sure that I observed proper etiquette while I was around these people. However, there were times where I slipped up, but I decided to not worry about it because there were a few stars who made mistakes themselves, ultimately proving that they're just as human as the rest of us.

Thirdly, forgive any typos that you may find. I’m currently re-reading this, and I’ll fix them as I find them.

And finally, I would like to dedicate this report to a few people on my flist:

Abby, Anna, Wiana, Lucy... You guys are the best. ♥

Alright, here we go!

Best Weekend EVAR! (the conclusion) )

That’s it guys. I hope you enjoyed my report. Also, if any of you are planning on going next year, let me know and we’ll see if we can do a meet-up.

Lots of love, and I'll see you guys later. ♥

Finally! Here's the first part of the report, guys. Part two should be posted tomorrow shortly.

Best Weekend EVAR! )

And that concludes Part One. Phew… I didn’t think I would ever get this thing finished. Next up is Part Two.  Highlights include: the Saturday Torchwood panel, James singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to me, getting to pose with both James and Gareth for a picture, me insulting Gareth… again.
Keep an eye out, and I’ll see you guys later. ♥
Yep, today's my 24th birthday. Yay! I haven't been able to watch any Torchwood as of yet -- I just got home. My mother took me to Hobby Lobby and bought me a custom frame for my portrait of Captain Jack Harkness which is hand-signed by John Barrowman. Then, she took me out to lunch at Red Lobster (which was yummy, btw), and finally, she took me to the our local bakery to pick up my birthday cake -- which is beautiful beyond words. Finally, we got home and I find that my third season of Supernatural came in the mail. This day has been fucking awesome so far, and the real partying isn't even supposed to start until tonight. Keep in mind that I'm not a party animal... For me, a night of partying is chowing down on pizza and cake, while watching the premiere of Ghost Hunters and Destination Truth. 

See? It doesn't take much to make this girl happy. By the way, pictures of my beautiful Janto birthday cake are under the cut, along with pictures of the gorgeous third season box set of Supernatural -- try not to drool, ladies. XD

By the way, I would like to thank everyone for the patience you all have shown while I've been working on my con report. I've still got quite a few pictures to transfer onto my computer so that I may do a few fix-ups with my PaintShop, but for the most part, the report is coming along nicely and nearing completion. I should have it posted within the next few hours. However, if it isn't posted by 9:00 PM (my time), then it will probably not be posted at all today because I'll be busy diving into my cake while watching the TAPS team hunt down ghosts. Then, at 10:00 PM, my favorite cryptozoologist returns with all new episodes. I'll see if I can get the report posted after that (between 11:00 PM and 12:00 AM). If not, it will definitely be posted tomorrow.

Lots of love guys, and I'll see you all later. ♥ 

Yep. Today is our favorite teaboy's 25th birthday. Now, everyone say it along with me: Happy Birthday, Ianto!

*claps, cheers, and throws confetti*

Now then, Jack, what are you planning to give the teaboy for his very special day?

*raises a questioning eyebrow and smirks*

Also, here's a heads up guys -- the filming for the third series of Torchwood starts today in Cardiff. So, if you're into spoilers (like me), be sure to keep an eye out on your favorite TW LJ communities.

ETA: I stand corrected. It appears as if the filming started on the 18th, and not the 19th. Even better. :D

Insomnia... It really is a killer. 

I just re-watched From Out of the Rain for the first time since it's initial showing on television. And, after having done so, I realize that I really do have a "love-hate" relationship with this episode.

Review, and a little bit of ranting under the cut.

All in all, I found this episode to be along the lines of "ok." It wasn't all that bad, but it wasn't all that great either. However, despite all of its short-comings, I still have to admit that it was pretty damned creepy and atmospheric. It was also Ianto-centric, which satisfied that horrible little fangirl who resides within me. I was also rather happy with the fact that Jack and Ianto got to work alone on a case. So, I guess if I were to put all rational thinking aside, I could grow to love this episode...

Kitsu's Final Grade: C
Two weeks... Two weeks from today, I'll be in Atlanta -- waiting in line to receive my D*C badge. Squee! Of course, my mother will be in tow because, even though she'll never admit it, she's as big of a fangirl as I am -- especially when it comes to Edward James Olmos. Bless her.

My reasons for going:

Gareth David-Lloyd (Ianto Jones, Torchwood)
James Marsters (Spike, BtVS/AtS; Captain John Hart, Torchwood)
Jason Hawes (Ghost Hunters)
Grant Wilson (Ghost Hunters)
Steve Gonsalves (Ghost Hunters)
Dave Tango (Ghost Hunters)

I'm actually going to come face-to-face with my favorite teaboy~! Hee! I hope beyond all that he'll sign my Torchwood series 2 box set; hopefully, James, will do the same. I may get Anthony Lewis to sign it as well. It all just depends on my money situation... I'm currently saving up for the intimate dinner with both James and Gareth, and I want my photo-ops.

Two weeks... Just two more weeks...

Also, on an almost equally excitable note, I received my Angel: After the Fall #10 - ComicCon International Exclusive (hand-signed by Alex Garner). Mwahaha! So much fangirly-ness in one day -- it's almost too much to handle~! XD

ETA: Just found out that Nathan Fillion is going to be there as well. OMFG... O_O

ETA 2: And Alan Tudyk as well?! Gah! *flails*

I'm just in a naughty mood right now, so I thought I'd post one of my favorite Torchwood music vids. Yes, I'm that obsessed... sue me.

I am going to give you a heads up though: there is a LOT of snogging in this video -- ranging from boys kissing boys, to boys kissing girls, to girls kissing other girls. 

Can you believe there's actually people in this world who don't like that sort of thing? Shocking. Me, on the other hand, I could watch it all day... Especially when the luscious John Barrowman is taking part... Of course, I don't mind watching Gareth either. ;]

LOL. This series really does spoil me something terrible. xD

Disclaimer: This video was not created by me~
As I'm sure a lot of you already know, the Doctor Who Proms took place a couple weeks ago. Well, I finally got around to watching the mini-episode Music of the Spheres, and I must say that it was bloody fantastic. David still retained the Doctor's ever cheeky attitude -- which shined when he took charge of the orchestra telling the conductor to stand down. Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.

Also, this line spoken by the Doctor made me chuckle quite a bit: 

"I said to beethoven, I said 'I can rattle off a tune.' He said 'Pardon?'"

LOL. Though this mini-ep was only 7 and a half minutes long, it should serve to be just enough to tie us over until Christmas. Can't wait for the return of the Cybermen! :D

I was shocked the other day... I was hit with a question that I, believe it or not, didn't have an answer for -- my mother looked at me and said: "What are your top five favorite episodes of Torchwood?"

I just stood there... speechless. I couldn't believe that I hadn't already comprised a list of my favorite episodes from my beloved series; it's something I usually always do once they wrap up a second season. I've done it with: Doctor Who, Supernatural, Farscape, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, CSI: Vegas, etc. And, yet, I haven't done it with Torchwood?

Well, since being asked that question, I've worked on comprising the list of my top five all-time favorite Torchwood episodes thus far, and here it is:

1. Dead Man Walking (series 2; episode 7) -

This is easily my #1 favorite episode out of the 26 we've been graced with. I loved how Owen and Jack's relationship was displayed in this episode: that of a father and son. How Jack was unable to let go of Owen despite the fact that he knew exactly what the glove was capable of struck a chord in me, and I found myself somewhat envious of Owen (weird, but true). And then there was that wonderful jail scene which made me chuckle at first, but then a warm smile flashed across my face when Jack playfully pushed Owen's head; it was at that precise moment that you knew exactly how much Owen meant to Jack. Great scene, great dialogue, and just an all-around fantastic episode that I could watch repeatedly. 

2. To The Last Man (series 2; episode 3) -

For me, this is the most romantic episode of Torchwood; an episode that makes your heart ache for Toshiko... and for Tommy. A love that could never be, and yet they accepted it. They took advantage of what little time they had together, and made the most of it. Beautiful. And the scene with her just simply walking off at the end of the episode was powerful. Such a simple scene with enough potency to hit you to your core.

And, of course, there was the scene between Jack and Ianto, which caused me to melt. Such a wonderful scene with Jack pretty much declaring that he loved Ianto -- in a "beat around the bush" sort of way. That was so very Jack. And then there was the kiss that Ianto initiated. So romantic. And the color scheme of that said scene only added to it's sheer beauty. Loved it.

3. Fragments (series 2; episode 12) -

It was great to finally learn of how the entire team were recruited into Torchwood; from campy victorian!Jack pinning after his Doctor, to Tosh trying to save her mother only to be locked up in a UNIT facility, to stalker!Ianto and the catching of Myfanwy, to Owen and his tragic past with the death of the woman he loved. So much was finally explained.

4. End of Days (series 1; episode 13) -

Yes, I actually preferred this finale to Exit Wounds. The group dynamic in this episode is fantastic, and it poses the question: How far would you go in order to bring back someone you dearly loved? Would you risk destroying the world?

This episode also demonstrated how much Jack's team meant to him; he stood up against a monster in true "David and Goliath" fashion, and he vanquished it -- almost destroying himself in the process.

5. Captain Jack Harkness (series 1; episode 12) -

The second most romantic episode in the Torchwood universe, in my humble opinion. Jack and Toshiko are lost through a timeshift to 1940's Cardiff. There, they meet the real Captain Jack Harkness -- the man whom Jack stole his identity from. Through the course of this episode, the two captains become close, and ultimately fall in love with one another.

Loved the music, along with John Barrowman's performance. Granted, he is not the greatest actor in the world, but he was fantastic in this episode. And the kiss between him and the real captain Jack actually caused me to blush. 

Also, I loved the clash between Ianto and Owen over opening the Rift in order to save Jack and Toshiko; it really demonstrated Ianto's loyalty to Jack.

Despite saving up just about all of my cash for Dragon*Con, I decided to check out the iTunes store and see if I should buy NIN's new CD, or if I should just download it onto my iPod. So, I go browsing the store, and what do I find?

That's right -- the Torchwood soundtrack is already available for download here in the states. Needless to say that I was shocked beyond measure because I had already pre-ordered mine from AmazonUK, fully expecting to not lay my hands on it until the end of September. To think that those of us here in states would get anything TW related first?

*bounces around gleefully*

Well, after the initial shock wore off, I immediately payed my $10 -- which, I may add, is a steal for an album containing 32 songs -- and downloaded it. My thoughts on the songs contained on the CD? Can I just say... guh? This soundtrack contains every single song from the series that I dearly love, including:

 Everything Changes (a trademark torchwood theme)
The Chase (this theme always get me fired up and ready to go)
Jack's Love Theme (*a warm smile slowly appears on kitsu's face*)
The Death of Dr. Owen Harper (*the smile fades, and kitsu begins to cry*)
Owen Fights Death (my utmost favorite theme from the entire series -- so powerful)
Owen's Theme (yet another powerful score...)
Captain Jack's Theme (*a dopey grin flashes across kitsu's face*)
Death of Toshiko (*wibbles and sobs*)
Torchwood Theme (I honestly don't think I need to say anything about this one)

I'm sorry -- I do indeed love my Doctor Who OSTs -- but they pale in comparison to this. Just listening to this soundtrack makes me giddy, and I want to run off and watch my series two box set. :D

God, I love my show...

I find that it's time for some more funny. Why? Because, with the day I've had, I desperately need it. So, I present to you some of the funniest TW moments. Enjoy. 

Side note: You don't seem to realize just how moronic society is until you read some of the comments on youtube. 

Example:  i dont get it in the first series ianto wasnt gay but now he is 


He's not gay, he's bisexual you ponce! Believe it or not, there's a difference. And the fact that he's bi was evident in the series one -- yes, SERIES ONE -- episode They Keep Killing Suzie. You know, the one that made the stopwatch a canon sex toy?

Speed races FTW.

And, besides, what difference would it make if he decided to bat for the other team all together? I mean, really. Although, I honestly don't think he ever would. Ianto loves Jack -- in fact, I think I read in an interview posted quite some time ago where RTD stated that Jack was the only man Ianto has ever slept with. 

There's something so very special about their relationship. Jack is so aloof, and yet he opens up to Ianto when there's no one else around. Ianto takes care of, and looks after Jack. Whether it's bringing him coffee, helping him with his coat, or being his private confidant -- Jack is Ianto's raison d'ĂȘtre; his reason to live.

At least that's my two cents worth.

Disclaimer: This video was not created by me~
I was bored... And that's one thing that should be prevented at all costs because that's when my mind begins to wander off into weird, and often times, perverted territory. What have I come up with this time? A marathon list for DW/TW. Yeah, I know. That wasn't exactly what you were hoping for was it? Sorry, but no NC-17 Janto fics today. Maybe I'll add some to my journal later.

Hopefully, Gareth won't read any of it though... *shifty eyes*

Anyway, here's the rules for the marathon list: You must include episodes from all four series of the new Doctor Who, along with both series of Torchwood. The only drawback is that you can only choose a maximum of four episodes per series. You can, however, create marathons that contain therein themes of which are inspired by your favorite characters and/or writers. 

So, keeping that in mind, here's my marathon list which is devoted to my favorite characters: Captain Jack Harkness, Ianto Jones, and the 10th Doctor. I also included episodes from my favorite writer, Steven Moffatt, because it's a proven fact he's made of awesome. 

Please remember to watch these in the order I've listed them. Oh, and yeah, this list contains MAJOR spoilers. Now then, on with the show:

Doctor Who (series 1-2)

The Empty Child (1x09) - Written by: Steven Moffatt 
We [the audience] are introduced to intergalactic conman, Captain Jack Harkness. He's suave, extremely good-looking, and he swings any way.

The Doctor Dances (1x10)
- Written by: Steven Moffatt
The conclusion; Jack becomes one of the Doctor's companions. Also, on a more comedic and slashable note, the Doctor reveals that he likes bananas. Hey, he said it... Not me.

Bad Wolf (1x12)

The first mention of Torchwood in the NuWho series; Jack improving viewing figures; Jack proving that he will indeed flirt with just about anything -- even robotic women who're planning to kill him.

Do you see now why we love him so damn much?

The Parting of the Ways (1x13)

The conclusion; the jack/nine smooch which was the first same-sex kiss in the entire whoverse; the death/resurrection/abandonment of Jack; Nine regenerates into Ten.

Tooth and Claw (2x02)
Torchwood is created by Queen Victoria in 1879. Oh, there's also a werewolf, bald monks, and high-flying martial arts... My fandom has everything.

The Girl in the Fireplace (2x04)
- Written by: Steven Moffatt
The Doctor falls in love... with Madame de Pompadour. No, I'm not kidding.

Army of Ghosts (2x12)

Torchwood One is introduced (where Ianto worked with his girlfriend, Lisa).

Doomsday (2x13)

The conclusion; the Doctor looses Rose to a parallel world; Torchwood One is destroyed.

Torchwood (series 1)

Everything Changes (1x01)
The audience is formally introduced to Torchwood Three -- lead by none other than, Captain Jack Harkness. We also learn that Ianto does indeed look damn good in a suit.

Cyberwoman (1x04)

Jack acts as if he's deeply betrayed when he learns of what Ianto's been hiding in the basement under the Hub. Also features the first Janto kiss... Who cares if Ianto was unconscious at the time? It still counts.

Captain Jack Harkness (1x12)
We learn of where Jack got his name; features a beautiful yet ultimately tragic love story. Also, be sure to keep an eye out for the "Vote Saxon" poster -- you'll understand why in the DW episodes which lie ahead.

End of Days (1x13)

Jack's immortality is put to the test; second Janto kiss (completely consensual this time around); Jack abandons his team without warning; ending leads directly into the DW episode Utopia, and features an off-screen cameo of the TARDIS.

Doctor Who (series 3)

Blink (3x10) - Written by: Steven Moffatt
One episode that's included in the list because of it's sheer awesomeness. The Doctor and Martha are lost in the year 1969, and must rely on a girl by the name of Sally Sparrow to help them. 

Utopia (3x11)

Captain Jack is, after waiting for over one hundred years, finally reunited with his beloved Doctor... So, what? I get a hug, but no jack/ten snog? Dammit... Oh, and yeah, the Master owns all. Fact.

The Sound of Drums (3x12)

Part II; The simm!Master has found his way to our century. His name: Harold Saxon. See? I told you to keep a look-out for them there posters now didn't I? Also, Jack acknowledges that he fancies the Doctor...

Wow, really? I had no idea...

Last of the Time Lords (3x13)

The conclusion; Martha saves the world because she's made of win; Jack leaves the Doctor to return to his team at Torchwood after realizing that is where he truly belongs; we learn that Jack is the Face of Boe... Wait, what? How does our pretty-but-flirty captain become a giant face in a jar? The hell?! And what's with this whole thing of him having many children? 

*looks over to ianto and raises an eyebrow*

I'm not even going there...

Torchwood (series 2)

Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang (2x01)
Jack returns; Captain John Hart is introduced; Jack tells Ianto that he "came back for him"; Jack shows interest in developing his and Ianto's relationship by asking him out on an actual true-to-life date -- all while being just a little bit flustered I might add. Such uber cuteness! 

Also, my fangirl brain barely survived the JB/JM snogfest...

Adam (2x05)

It's revealed that Jack has a long lost brother by the name of Gray; Jack's blind love for Ianto is displayed; Ianto confesses that Jack has given meaning to his life once again.

If that's not a declaration of love, then I don't know what is.

Fragments (2x12)

How everyone was recruited into the Torchwood Institute is revealed; shows that the attraction between Jack and Ianto has indeed always been there. Also, Janto catching Myfanwy is the utmost love.

Exit Wounds (2x13) - 
Captain John returns; Jack's reunited with his brother only to discover that he's become a vindictive psychopathic bastard; features the swan song of two beloved characters.

I swear, I can't watch this episode without crying...

Doctor Who (series 4)

Midnight (4x10)
Demonstrates exactly what happens when you put a group of people together, and the need for self-preservation takes over. Brilliant episode featuring a very limited amount of sets, and nothing but dialogue. 

Turn Left (4x11)

We glimpse into a world that doesn't have the Doctor, and it isn't pretty. I admit to tearing up when the Doctor dropped his sonic-screwdriver. That was such an amazingly powerful scene that struck me to my core.

The Stolen Earth (4x12) -
All of the companions gather together to search for their beloved Doctor when planet earth is stolen by none other than, Davros (also includes: Ianto and Gwen from TW, and Luke from SJA). Also, jealous!Ianto and whipped!Jack FTMFW. 

Do you hear me, RTD? I want more domestic Janto in my TW! And an actual sex scene would be nice... Although, I'll admit to being rather pleased with the scene given to us in the Torchwood episode Adrift.

Journey's End (4x13)

Loose ends are tied up (finally); Donna proves that she is indeed the GREATEST companion ever; Rose gets dumped with a ten!clone (ha!); features what is quite possibly the most heart-breaking ending I've ever seen...

Total Episode Count: 24 (damn, that was hard...)

Well, that's it. If you've got any questions or comments, don't hesitate to post them. And, yeah... In case you haven't figured it out by now, I can't stand Rose -- especially after the finale.

Yeah, I changed my journal layout to that of the delicious -- or so Jack tells me -- Ianto Jones

*stares and looses train of thought*

*shakes head*

Err... where was I? Oh, right... Credit for the layout has been given in my profile. Speaking of, I changed my profile layout as well; I also added two three many scrumptious Janto animations to my sidebar. 

*motions over to the left side of the screen*

Thanks to those, I can now only work on my journal when my father's out of the family room. Why? Because the ripe old bastard's homophobic... 

*rolls eyes* 

Don't get me started...

But, seriously, look at that. That there defines the word "hotness." Guh...


Now then, time for the meat of my post: Episode ratings for Doctor Who series 4, and Torchwood series 2.

Those of us here in the states just got the DrWho episode Journey's End this past Friday, and I gotta say -- WOW. Such a powerful, emotional, and bittersweet finale. I was literally left in tears. So, after watching it -- twice -- I was compelled to rate all of the episodes of the latest series of both DrWho and Torchwood; here they are:

Torchwood Series Two

Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang - 9/10
Sleeper - 6/10
To The Last Man - 8/10
Meat - 7/10
Adam - 8/10
Reset - 8/10
Dead Man Walking - 9/10
A Day in the Death - 7/10
Something Borrowed - 5/10
From Out of the Rain - 6/10
Adrift - 9/10
Fragments - 10/10
Exit Wounds - 10/10


Doctor Who Series Four

Partners in Crime - 7/10
Fires of Pompeii - 6/10
Planet of the Ood - 7/10
The Sontaran Stratagem - 9/10
The Poison Sky - 9/10
The Doctor's Daughter - 6/10
The Unicorn and the Wasp - 7/10
Silence in the Library - 8/10
Forest of the Dead - 8/10
Midnight - 10/10
Turn Left - 9/10
The Stolen Earth - 10/10
Journey's End - 10/10

After rating all of the episodes between the two series, it's easy to see that this was one HELL of a year for both. I'm on pins-and-needles waiting for Torchwood series three. I'm anxiously awaiting the four Doctor Who specials we're supposed to get in 2009 along with this year's Christman Special as well. Also, I hope beyond all that David will stick around for series 5. However, if he does decide to leave, I'm still going to stick with the series. Who knows, maybe the next person to take on the role will be just as good as him. You never know, right?

Interview can be found here:


It's great to see the overwhelming support this series is receiving over here in the states. I'm also pleasantly surprised by how much my fellow TW fans are supporting the Jack/Ianto relationship. I became a big-time slasher/shipper back during the times of Angel and Farscape, and I've been shipping Jack and Ianto from episode one when Jack made the remark "And he looks good in a suit." 

To think that the couple would eventually become, not only canon, but the "heart" of the show? I never would've dreamed of it. Hell, I'm used to my slashed couples being just that -- slash.  So, to say that this interview made my day would be a gross understatement. That's also not including the fact that, in a previous interview, Julie said we would continue to see Jack and Ianto as a couple because she likes seeing them as such. In other words, the wonderful Julie Gardner is a Janto shipper as well.

Julie, can I just say that I love you?

This is also, I believe, the first time that JB has used the words "fallen for" in an interview when referring to Janto, which is ultimately going to put quite a few worries to rest: Yes, peeps... As I've been stating on quite a few forums for a while now, Jack does indeed love Ianto. I also believe this relationship is going to be a long-term thing in the show. And that, in itself, makes me very happy.

As big of a fan as I am of Torchwood, and I'm just now finding out about this video? Argh, I fail!

Be warned: Yes, this video does indeed contain spoilers for series 2. And, yeah, you will laugh your ass off.

Disclaimer: This video was not created by me~ 
Review for The Stolen Earth under the cut.

All in all, this episode was basically 100 percent pure fanservice. And, being as big of a fan as I am of this series, I must admit that I'm quite satisfied.

Kitsu's Final Score: A

First of all, thanks so much to those of you who've been posting vids and pictures from comic-con yesterday. The fangirl in me especially loved the Torchwood ones; particularly this pic which, ultimately, caused me to squee like a complete idiot:

Credit for the pic belongs to Anna Altheide.

Thanks so much, sweetie. You rock! Unfortunately, John didn't go through with the kiss... Argh, the tease!

And that picture wasn't all -- you guys should hear some of the nicknames this group has for each other's *ahem*. LOL. And then there was the Cliff, Shag, Marry question: So, John would marry Gareth because he's seen him naked? Ha! I wonder how many fangirls (and fanboys) died due to that reply. Plus there was some serious innuendo; I love Gareth's comment in particular which went a little something like this:

JB: There's a lot of John Barrowman in Captain Jack...
GDL: There's a lot of Ianto in there as well.

ROFLMFAO! God, I love these people. Srsly. I also loved Gareth's comment about shagging the leading man, and how it garners him a lot of attention. Hee! And the expression on his face when he said "Lisa!" killed me dead. xD

Hey, wait a minute... Does that mean Ianto's NOT the bottom? Oh, Lord, I can see the fanfics now...

*kitsu's mind begins to wander off into new and uncharted territory... and she likes what she sees*

LOL. Knowing Jack, he's probably willing to try anything. And by the way, pertaining to John's comment about Jack not really doing that much sexually, I've gotta agree with Gareth -- dude, episode 11! You know, the one that practically made the entire Janto fandom implode. I know... I was there on the TW LJ Community when the episode aired, and I must say that that was one hell of a night. Plus, there are quite a few other tid-bits throughout the series. Example: John Hart's comment about Jack no longer liking bondage in the episode Exit Wounds; Ianto replying to Martha's dabbling question with "Innovative. Bordering on the avant-garde." And, we all know that Jack and Ianto are going at it quite a bit, so I don't want to hear it.

Now then, back on to the subject of Gareth, I've FINALLY convinced my mother to come with me to Dragon*Con. After the past couple of years she and I've had, I figured that she could do with getting out of the house, and going on a trip with me; we desperately need it. I've also almost completed the planning for the convention, which was grueling because of all of the events. Thankfully though, I've narrowed it down to where we're just going to go to four tracks across three hotels. We're going on the Walk of Fame as well. I'm also planning to do some photo-ops; hopefully Gareth David-Lloyd, James Marsters, Grant Wilson, and Jason Hawes will be taking part. If not, I'd be happy just taking a picture with Adam Baldwin (*g*). I also want some autographs. I've already got James in my collection -- although I would be more than happy to collect another one -- but I still need Gareth, Grant, Jason, and Adam. Plus, Steve's going to be there, so I'm hoping to get his autograph as well. It's all just a matter of having enough time.

Another thing that makes this convention special is because of the fact that it's my first, and that it's during the weekend before my birthday. Squee! I'll be sure to post pictures of my con-goodies, along with pictures of the con itself, once I get back.
