Back from Washington, you guys!  I went to many, many, many museums.  I actually really enjoyed the Air and Space Museum, which I only went to in honour of JShep.  But it was really awesome!  I like....planes.  Actually, the entire time I was in Washington, I kept thinking '...must write au...' - did you know there is a MacKay award given to the USAF pilot who showed bravery/fortitude/smartness? AU.    And how John and Rodney were fur traders.  And how they were 1960's NASA employees.  And how they were in WW1.  and 2.  And Vietnam. And on the wagon trail and they don't die of dysentery.  GOD.  The entire time, I was just 'fuck canon, I'm only writing AUs from now on in.' 

Uh, has anybody else read World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War?  Because if someone would write an sga crossover with that, I could pretty much kill myself, because nothing could top that, ever. 

So I'm almost caught up with Doctor Who and I'm up with Torchwood. 

Okay, I'm sorry.  I just spent 40 minutes drafting an outline of an sga/wwz crossover.  In case anybody is interested in what my outlines look like, here is an excerpt:

blah blah zombie killing.  They reach the west and by this time are gay homos.  R needs to have decapitated a zombie by this point - possibly has sword of science!!!?!  ***Look up what else could be used as bullets once J runs out.  Possibly R makes a shotgun of zombie doom. 

The makings of a classic.

Anyways, Torchwood.  I have to say, when Captain Jack Harkness appeared on Doctor Who I was not his biggest fan.  Nothing shall interrupt the Rose/nine show.  BUT OMG.  I love Torchwood.  I love it so so much.  True story: I actually enjoy the plots.  But mostly I enjoy Captain Jack Harkness, my absolute dream guy.  I...love him so much, you guys.  I have liked characters in the past, I like JShep and co, Chloe from SV, Rose, uh, you get the point.  But I have an all encompassing love for Captain Jack.  Back in the old qaf days, people were Brian or Justin apologists, and their character could do no wrong.  I never really got it, couldn't they see that it was flawed, that the character was kinda awful blah blah blah.  No.  Now I understand.  Captain Jack can do. no. wrong.  And I will fight you.  My baby deserves the best. 

I don't really ship anybody in Torchwood, I mostly just want Jack to be happy and to run through gardens while singing a joyful song.  But uh, I have a shameful confession for you guys.  If I were to ship anybody, it would totally be Jack/Gwen.  Don't hit me :(  I've read the websites :(  I mostly am of the opinion that my Jack gets what my Jack wants and what the show is telling me is that Jack wants Gwen but will have fun with Ianto in the meantime, as a second choice. 

This is really weird for me, because I am a whore to fandom.  99.999999 % of the time, I will ship along with the good writers in fandom.  I am easily swayed.  I am so conflicted.  My heart is tumultuous.  I have to read some H/D or like, Clark/Lex to feel like I belong again.  Please don't kick me out of the cool kids club D:  Jack/Gwen 4eva, mfeo omg. 

Oh Doctor Who.  I don't even know where to start.  I am kind of crazy with my love - and I've only just gotten into it.  There are these two girls at work who I'm friends with - they also watch Doctor Who, which is amazing.   However, I am crazy:

Girl One: OMG I love the Doctor
Me: And Rose!
Girl Two: Oh, I don't really like her
One: Me neither, she's kind of annoy-
Me: YOU WHORE.  I HATE YOU
Two: Uh, okay.  Well I guess she's okay...
Me: ROSE/DOCTOR OTP
One: sure, sure you crazy person.  I'm humoring you.
Two: I prefer the Tenth Doctor.
Me: I prefer the Ninth, but I can deal with that.  Do you watch Torchwood
Two: I used to, but I really dislike Captain Jack
One: He's not really attractive
Me:  FUCK YOU, BITCHES.  A POX ON BOTH YOUR HOUSES

AND THEN I HAD TO TAKE A WALK TO COOL DOWN.

I also keep making comments about reading things on "the internet" but they haven't reciprocated to my sekrit fandom code. 

I need to rewatch the episodes and do an ep by ep review.  I can't really think of anything to say besides 'I love xxx!!!!!" and "OMG, OMG, OMG".  I watched the first episode with my mom today, and she was all 'what the hell are you watching, you freak out."  This is why I need the internet, always.
