Re: Children of Earth.

I am so fucking done with this series.

THAT was what I waited for months for? THAT? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? FUCK YOU AND THE HORSE YOU RODE IN ON RUSSELL T DAVIES! Obviously you have no FUCKING CLUE why I've put up with this series despite all its EXTREME faults.

Yeah, I love John Barrowman, but let's face it, there are better actors in the world. And the plots? Suck. Special effects? Suck.

There was one fucking reason why I continued to watch, fangirl, obsess, and spend wads of cash on this series and you. Just. FUCKING. KILLED. It.

One less fan to watch your precious Season 4. If it ever happens.

Shiny Teeth - Captain Jack Harkness - Torchwood  
Because I am now bereft of my lovely, wonderful, gorgeous, and all around amazing Balthier (my laptop ;_; ), I'm posting my current favorite fanvid in his honor. Because it makes me happy.

Re: Doctor Who S3E08/S3E09  
Tell you what, personal opinion, the Doctor is a first class jerk. Except he's a jerk who doesn't know he's a jerk. And he's a jerk that makes people love him.

In S3E09, him, just casually as you please, offering Martha's spot up to a random woman pisses me off. After having Martha watch him, the man she's in love with, fall for another human woman.

He's got people who fall in love with him, who adore him, who would do ANYTHING for him. And yet, he takes them for granted. Look how he treated Jack. Discarded him. Martha. Donna. Rose might have meant something to him, though. Though mostly, I think, because he can't have her anymore.

Jo had a point. If the Doctor had not chosen that place, that time, on a whim in an attempt to escape, people would have lived.

I'm really starting to...dislike him, really. He uses people. At least Jack and Martha wised up. Rose at least got her very own Doctor, but not the real one. I was actually initially kind of upset at Jack turning down the Doctor, at Martha leaving, but now I feel a bit differently. It really hurts to be so casually overlooked. It might be one thing if he treated everyone with the same casual indifference, too. But he doesn't.

TW fanfiction rant  
You know where I'd like to see Torchwood go? Okay, so Tosh was REALLY irreplaceable. I would have rather she not have died. But a soothing balm? (Besides more hot, hot, HOT Janto scenes) Would be John Hart joining. He's good at tech, isn't he? Why not?

Also, I'm beginning to give up hope on finding actually GOOD Torchwood fanfiction. It may be a mean thing to say, but I haven't actually found a fic that doesn't have a problem SOMEWHERE. Whether it is in the characterization, in the style of the fic, in the plot, in the point of view, etc! Okay, not fair. I have found a few good ones, but they certainly weren't the Jack/Ianto flavor that I currently want.

I'm beginning to wonder if the series is just TOO obvious for the kick-ass writers. If they'd rather stretch their legs elsewhere. ~_~

But I know I'm just being unkind. There are good fics out there (there HAVE to be), they're just buried under all the SHIT. >_<

A fic that's in character, well-written, shows instead of tells, stays on its chosen point of view, is NOT pure cringe-inducing ANGST, and doesn't have ANY HORRIBLE OCs playing main parts (I got into the series for the canon characters, not for possible OCs fans might come up with). It's apparently asking too much. Or maybe I'm giving up too soon. I don't know. But I do know I'd rather watch an episode for the 4th time than attempt to slog my way through another bad fic. ~_~

...I suppose I should start searching for rec sites instead of trying to dig myself. I know I don't have enough stamina to dive headfirst into the Torchwood ocean without a little guidance.

Edit: Found the rec community! Yayness!

Torchwood, the Doctor Who spinoff, has officially hit me over the head with a shovel full of Janto and Captain Jack Harkness and his little teaboy have dragged my brain off into their secluded dark office corner. ~_~

Seriously, people.
