Via [twitter.com profile] cerebralcutlass, I am really sad to pass on the news that [livejournal.com profile] blue_fjords has passed away from cancer. She was 36.

Blue and I hadn't really spoken in a long time, unfortunately. We were friends from the heyday of Torchwood fandom, hung out in a lot of the same communities and message boards and had a lot of friends in common. I remember her as a constant source of positive energy, as she was always so full of enthusiasm for all of her friends and their projects. She was a prolific and talented writer, who moved into Supernatural, CW RPF and Teen Wolf fandoms after contributing a huge number of wonderful stories to the Torchwood fandom. I had a great time collaborating with her on an episode of the Torchwood virtual season 3 we were involved in.

She loved baking, and made all kinds of exciting vegan cupcakes to sell at farmer's markets. She was devoted to animals, working at an animal charity and doting on her pets. She'd always have adorable photos of her dogs to hand to bestow on anyone who was having a bad day.

She was a fun, kind, thoughtful person, and cancer is the fucking worst.

Hi all,

So I set up [community profile] torchwood when I first moved over to Dreamwidth - it's never been terribly active, but seeing as the new season's airing at the moment I thought someone might have a use for it. As I'm not actually watching the show any more, that person isn't me!

So if anyone would like to take over modly duties, just let me know.

Thanks!

And here's the other one I had a hand in! (Hand being the operative word, [livejournal.com profile] beesandbrews did the lion's share of the writing in the end. Much kudos to her!)

The Hunt
by [livejournal.com profile] beesandbrews and [personal profile] such_heights
"A killer on the loose, a strange alien encounter, and plans gone awry. For Team Torchwood and Rhys Williams, it's just another night in Cardiff."

I've been totally remiss at linking to stuff over at [livejournal.com profile] tw_itallchanges, but go, have a look! There are fantastic episodes as well as all kinds of fun bits and pieces in between. Episode 4 has just gone up, and I helped out with this one. :D

Half-Baked
by [livejournal.com profile] blue_fjords, Galadriel, [livejournal.com profile] rm, and [personal profile] such_heights

There's something funny going on in the kitchen of Fairy Cakes Bakery, but which Torchwood operative will investigate the case? Perhaps Captain Jack Harkness, running around the city of Cardiff on the tail of a dastardly... antique? Or Gwen Cooper, feeling decidedly under-the-weather on what should be a day to relax and revive? Maybe Ianto Jones, when he's done protecting his own flat from unwanted invaders? Or could it be Torchwood's newest member, JJ Namkung, who needs just a bit more training on his new alien lifestyle? No! The task falls to one Rhys Williams, manager Secret Agent Man. It's a difficult job, but if anyone can protect the population of Cardiff from potentially alien cupcakes, biscuits and tarts, he can!

An alternate Torchwood Series Three. Months of work and love have gone into this, and I'm pretty excited that it's finally launch time. Thirteen episodes, thirteen weeks, a host of talent and a lot of really cool stuff is headed your way. Go! Subscribe! And look out for my bits in a few weeks' time. :D

+ [livejournal.com profile] sheafrotherdon: "It's now time to tell." trigger warning for discussion of sexual violence.

+ on Angry Asian Man: ... and Harrison Ford as Dr. Chen, in which a real person's life is getting white-washed.

+ an AfterEllen interview with Jane Espenson, writer of Caprica: "It's Time for Sexuality To Be Incidental">. Given BSG's track record of evil (dead) queers, that interview does not exactly inspire me with confidence, but, maybe it won't be so awful. We will see! And as we know, I will put up with a lot for canon queer and robots, heh.

+ in fannish news, Torchwood/Doctor Who comment!porn battle VI is a go!

+ In department of 'omg this had better be a totally unfounded rumour': Fox to commission a RTD-penned US remake of Torchwood? WHAT. And I am just not thinking about how I would feel if it did turn out that RTD did indeed blow up his old show then go and make a brand new shiny one. May this never come to pass!

+ In happier news, [livejournal.com profile] queerlit50 is starting up, similar to [livejournal.com profile] 50books_poc. Read some queer authors! Tell me about them! :D My reading list for the next few weeks includes Sarah Waters' Fingersmith, Mary Renault's The Persian Boy, and Ellen Kushner's Swordspoint, so I will probably chat about those over there.

+ Also, [personal profile] oxoniensis's ninth porn battle is taking prompts.

+ eta: Also! The [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti auction closes in just over 24 hours. There's a lot of things still available over there very reasonably, and everything's all listed and indexed so it's easy to find something you might like.
