[ mood | ecstatic ]

Wow, I haven't posted since 2009. At University now, and moved on with life, IRL and online. Now mainly to be found on tumblr Miriwoo
Basically I might come back to LJ but tumblr has the pretty pictures at the moment - so I mainly use LJ just for reading fic.
Plus my interests in fandom have changed dramatically. In my opinion the death of Ianto completely changed the show of Torchwood and whilst I will definitely watch whenever it airs, it isn't the show I first fell in love with almost four years ago and as such I've had a massive clear out of most of the TW communities.
And now I've found Glee. Glee allows me to feel part of something again that fandom in general hasn't since Children of Earth. When Klaine finally happened last night I remembered what it felt to be a part of something that spreads across the world, and got incredibly hyper at the same time.

Glee is on a four week hiatus now, which should give me enough time to explore the LJ community. And calm down after my high this morning when I first saw this.

[ mood | nostalgic ]

Ok, so first thoughts
1) Who the hell is he?
2) How do people get it up on Wikipedia so fast?
3) I love my friends! Constant text updates throughout Doctor Who Confidential :D

I kind of like his hair, and he was a bit different, but he was always going to be different. I think I've seen him somewhere before, but can't work out when/in what.
Oh well, we have to wait until Spring 2010 to find out how good he is.

Went to see John at his signing in Merton last week. What with all the drama, have only just got round to uploading all my photos (all 73 of them!)He and Gavin appeared at 6 and stayed for about an hour and a half, with John signing copies of Music Music Music.

Saluting
John saluting to a small boy who wanted his DW Annual signed.

John

I swear this man was wearing a reflective jacket to ruin everyone elses photos.
Waited around an hour in the queue to meet John - was very strange for all the people shopping around us!
One of my friends asked him if TW filming had finished, and he said yes, and it will show in early summer/around June. Too late!
Gavin noticed my Lee Mead badge(not that I'd worn it specially or anything!) So we then had a conversation about Lee, Daniel and Ben, as I had various articles of clothing relating to each of them :)

National Theatre [11 Feb 2008|09:19pm]
[ mood | hyper ]

Just got back from John's talk at the National Theatre - fantastic event!

I've been hyper all day despite xmakesmewonder pulling out at the last minute (crazy person). As we arrived at Waterloo I was already singing You can't stop the beat, to which I only know two lines, but still love the song! :D We then ran up to the balcony at the National Theatre, where we continued being generally hyper but I was disappointed to see no-one as hyper as me dancing on tables and singing. Then we went in and one of my friends pointed out we weren't allowed to take photos but I ignored that to begin with as soon as John walked in.

I don't remember all that was said - only a few bits. Most of it was said in his scottish accent which was gorgeous!
Carole: I remember locking John in a closet.
John (interrupting): And finally I came out! (Throws arms wide)

Lots of things about John's upbringing in Scotland - he repeated the story about Murn hitting his teacher and acted it out (playing the part of Murn, with Carole as the teacher)

Kaye Adams (the chair person) then asked him when he knew he was gay and he told the story about "I looked at the man and got an erection". He then thought it was very funny that people had laughed at 'erection' and preceded to say "so? Most men get them!" "But, you know, I was nine years old, it was like huh, what do i do with this?" *laughter* "Oh come on, you've all done it, maybe a bit differently!"

He made Scott come up to the stage from the stalls and "talk into my chest" and said Scott didn't really understand all the celebrity and it "wasn't his thing".

When asked what it was like to work with David Tennant (by a member of the audience) he went on about how fantastic he was, and they lived in the same building etc. Then he said "What, was I gonna say he was shit?"

We managed to quite quickly join the queue for autographs, and then I creeped round to see if John had appeared yet. At the FRONT of the queue I met a friend from primary school, and preceded to tell her all about my trips to Cardiff and to see him in panto. she said "Oh, you're a real fan then" "Have you heard the word stalker?" At which point Scott walked out of the lift behind her and I cracked up.

Queued for what felt like a long time but was really probably not very long and continued doing my two lines of Can't stop the beat. Loads of people were watching me - I don't think I realised quite how hyper I was being.

Eventually got to John and I told him I'd been to see him in Aladdin and thought it was fantastic. (really need to think of something else to say) and asked Carole didn't she get fed up with John getting the attention all the time? She said "No, I can still control him" and laughed.

It was Scott, I couldn't resist!

Then preceded to take lots of photos (on my photobucket account) and danced/sang all the way home, including a VERY funny game of Unlikely things to hear... and changing the words to the school song. Until the next time! (the tour!)

Aladdin [03 Feb 2008|08:28pm]
OK, A week ago (can't believe it was that long ago!), I went to see Aladdin for my birthday at the Hippodrome in Birmingham. It also happened to be the last night and the entire cast were fantastic - don't think I have laughed so much in ages! John was fantastic - and hot! Really just a fantastic show and we all loved it :D

Anyway, there are photos on my photobucket account and watching videos on youtube is fantastic - brings back the memories!

Disappointment [13 Jun 2007|12:47pm]
[ mood | tired ]

Disappointment
Warnings/Spoilers: End of Days (ish)
Rating: G
Pairing: Jack/Ianto (who else?)
Summary: Tosh's POV on Ianto
Disclaimer: Sadly, I do not own Jack, or Ianto, or anything else in the TW Universe. Or Jack's coat, which I would love to have. I do however own tickets to see John in panto. :D

I walked up the stairs behind him; he had his shoulders hunched and his head hung low, eyes trying to bore holes into the floor. It had been 3 months since Jack had gone, and Ianto was still quiet, I don’t think I’d seen him smile in all that time.

We were in the town centre, locals and tourists milling around us. I heard a low American voice behind us, it sounded familiar. Ianto had heard it too; he spun round and the look on his face… it was pure joy, the happiest I have ever seen him. His eyes were shining, his smile wide and a look about him that was so innocent and care free.

I didn’t turn to look behind me. I could see from the way his face fell that it wasn’t Jack. His eyes darkened, his frown appeared again and the layers went back up, walls of protection against the outside world. I don’t think I’ll ever forget it, that transformation between such joy, pure love and then the dark depths of loss and the image of a broken man.

Yay I'm a butler! [23 Feb 2007|05:18pm]
[ mood | happy ]

So I'm in the car with my mum coming back from the shops and she says she loves coming shopping with me. Apparently I'm just quietly helpful like a manservant she said. So I start grinning, although before TW I would probably have taken that as an insult. So she says maybe she should rechristen me Jeeves. According to her, I'd make a great butler! YAY! As long as I get to work for Jack! :D

Washing Up [21 Feb 2007|05:05pm]
[ mood | bored ]

Washing up
Ianto hates washing up. He hates the feel of the warm water cascading over his hands and the way the soap stays on his hands; bubbles float up into his flat and around his head. He hates washing up liquid, and most of all he hates Jack. The memories, of Jack wearing his pink rubber gloves and helping him tidy up his flat, for no reason at all. Remembering Jack wipe soap suds off his cheek and remembering Jack stacking dishes and drying them; making sarcastic comments about washing and how it's meant to be a woman's job. Ianto hates washing up. He hates it because it makes him miss Jack even more.

Rugby, chemistry and Jonny Wilkinson [10 Feb 2007|03:24pm]
[ mood | bored ]

Am currently supposed to be revising for Chemistry test on Monday, but can't really be bothered. Chemistry teacher never explains anything properly anyway so am trying to rely on BBC bitesize but I expect to do quite badly. Who really cares about Products from Crude Oils anyway?
Just finished watching England playing rugby - gradually getting an idea of what is going on. Don't really get the kicking stuff but can't wait till I learn how to kick like Wilkinson - should be attempting to do that at training in half term.
Jonny Wilkinson is really fantastic! Not just in the way he can kick like really far and everything, but his commitment! Commentator said he trained for 2 and a half hours in the snow on thursday! Not to mention the fact that he's quite fit for a rugby player... Oh well, back to Chemistry revision.

Baby Cybermen? [26 Jan 2007|09:16pm]
[ mood | amused ]

My sister has broken her leg, so she's on crutches. Naturally, we've all tried to come up with different ways to use them. My favourite was to put a blue light on the end and say the doctor lent her his sonic screwdriver... It cheered her up anyway. Anyway, we ended up using them as plunger bits from daleks, and shouting exterminate at each other before either (in my case) dying and then coming back to life like Jack or (in her case) getting hit and regenerating.
I then spoke like a dalek/cyberman all day at school. One of my sizeist friends (she's tall, I'm short, you know the story) commented that if I was a cyberman, I wouldn't be short 'cos they're all the same size. Is this actually true? What do children look like if they're converted? Can Cyberman have babies? And can you have baby daleks??

OMG Torchwood season finale! Absolutely fantastic, Ianto finally hit(well shot) Owen, as I've been wanting him to do for ages, but particularly after the part-time shag comment. SO cruel! And the Jack/Ianto kiss was no way near long enough, and I screamed when Jack kissed Jack(cheating on Ianto!) I loved it when they all ganged up against Jack, but I'm not sure why I cheered when Gwen slapped him. Loved the whole thing and keep going hyper whenever anyone mentions it. :D Must calm down, do english homework as am back to school tomorrow. Not so good.
Thoughts:
I think Jack doesn't know his real name
He might no longer be immortal.

Ok, so what do i do? [28 Dec 2006|07:12pm]
[ mood | confused ]

I don't really have any idea what I'm doing, although I managed to get my userpic up OK. And I think i creditted the right person too, at least I think that's what I did. Anyway, I love Torchwood and finally found a place where everyone else understands the plot lines (are they that hard?) and there are some people who back Jack/Ianto :)
