sareini: "ambiguous desire" written over an image of Desire of the Endless (Desire)
I have a friend by the name of Ardy. Ardy is a sci-fi geek, much the same as me. Earlier this week, Ardy discovered that I had never actually bothered to watch Torchwood, mainly because I was feeling disappointed at the way the new Doctor Who series had not lived up to my childhood expectations and memories. As the new Torchwood series was starting that night, he encouraged me to give some of the earlier stuff a try and see what I thought.

Well, I did. And I found myself hooked in pretty short order, which was a pleasant surprise. And, as is always the case with any TV series, I quickly developed a favourite character or two, favourite pairing and all the stuff that goes along with that.

...Anyone who saw Children of Earth, the latest Torchwood series, can maybe guess where this is going.

I love my dead gay Ianto!

(Okay, so he's really technically bisexual rather than gay, but the Heathers reference just doesn't work as well with "bisexual", does it?)

It is just my luck really, that I get really into a series and develop a favourite character and pairing - Jack/Ianto - only to have it ripped from me four days later. I'm seriously toying with the idea of fanfiction for Torchwood, except that I'd be retconning Children of Earth (the parts with beloved characters dying, natch) to suit my own ends. Because scary obsessive fangirlism isn't unhealthy at all, no sir.

I like scifi quite a bit myself. I've never seen Torchwood and only recently started watching reruns of the new (ish) Dr. Who. I think partly its because I know I'd like it and I already watch way too much TV.
