If you were to make a time capsule today to be opened in 50 years, what would you put in it?


Well, I presume we're not answering as if it were a personal time capsule, so... A copy of a Washington DC paper showing President Obama won the election, a copy of a New York paper on September 12, 2001, a copy of a Lousiana paper on the Katrina disaster, a Starbucks coffee cup, a DVD of the new Star Trek movie, obituaries for both Ghandi and Mother Teresa as well as complete biographies for both, a collection of both Cher and Michael Jackson's greatest hits, a cheap reusable tote bag, copies of the comic book trades where Superman and Captain America died, an article about the introduction of the Euro, the largest thumb drive from both 1999 and 2009, and a Forever stamp with a list of when stamp prices changed since 1990.

This is hopelessly biased towards Americans, but I freely admit to not paying much attention to the rest of the world.

1. With which character from Torchwood, would you most want to have coffee/tea/drinks and why?
Coffee = Ianto, because I don't really like coffee but I'm dying to taste his. Tea = Tosh, because I think we would have much in common. Drinks = Jack, because, I mean, he's Jack!

2. If you worked for Torchwood, what would your specialty be?
Ianto's part-time assistant, and the team's full-time Agony Aunt. Because Ianto needs some help with the extensive archives and the whole team needs help with their issues. Also, I actually have a bit of schooling in those areas.

3. If you could have anything from the Torchwood Wardrobe, what you pick?
Hmm, I would have more choice from the TARDIS wardrobe, especially considering the team wears pretty much the same thing from episode to episode, but... I suppose Mary's kimono? Or Emma's fluffy pink bathrobe.

4. If you could borrow any technology/weaponry from Torchwood for one day, what would you take?
That book-copier thing Tosh was using in the first episode. I could digitize my whole collection! Or Jack's wriststrap. Just 'cause.

5. If you could create a Torchwood spinoff show, what would it be like?
Torchwood Four, starring the poor unfornate employees of said station, who got stuck between dimensions, sort of, and now police alien activity on several semi-connected Earths of various dimensions. It would start Owen and Tosh welcoming Ianto on board, and the end of the first season would revolve around the TARDIS sending Rose and Ten II back home disturbing the 'Force' enough that the little spark of Time Vortex in him from Jack reaches back to Jack and pulls him in, culminating in a Torchwood Three with no Gwen or Suzie.

6. If you could join the Torchwood team and experience an adventure from one of the episodes, which one would you pick and why?
Well, definitely not Adam. Maybe Captain Jack Harkness.

7. If you could change something from an episode, what would you change?
Decisions, decisions... As much as I love Tosh and tolerate Owen, it would have to be you-know-what from Season 3. Actually, could I just erase Season 3, full stop?

Bed is for two things (one of which Jack is really really good at). And that’s fortunate, because otherwise Ianto would kick him out of bed for eating cookies.

“Bed is for two things, Jack, and eating is not one of them,” Ianto scolded his lover.Collapse )

Who is your favorite lady detective from movies, books, or TV?


Jessica Fletcher. Murder She Wrote and I go way back, and even though I haven't seen the show in...Gods, a decade?...she's still my favorite.

AU. Gert’s back, and determined to think only of what will be. Pay no attention to the tears of happiness in her eyes; they’re an illusion.

Sometimes Gert thought about what could have been.Collapse )

It takes two Time Lords to cross the Void; it’s impossible for the Doctor to manage by himself. But then Ten gets a visit from Eleven.

Notes: This is not soon-to-be-canon Eleven. Also, the title is more than slightly punnish; crossing the Void the way I propose is undoubtedly a gamble (21 being another name for the card game Blackjack), and Ten plus Eleven equals 21.

It’s impossible… But – Jack is an impossible thing. But he is, and who knows that better than him?Collapse )

Want. Take. Have.

Credit is a must. Comments adored but not necessary. Suggestions for different text cheerfully accepted. Alter at will, but remember to attribute the original base art to wachey and the icons themselves to me.

The Ray wants Robin. Superboy is not down with that.

“What do you think you’re doing?” Kon demanded.Collapse )
