So, as some of you have presumably already seen, buckle_berry
hosted a Valentine's Day cardathon, whereby participants made in-universe Valentine's cards and sent them to each other via post.
I am going to assume that this is the reason for the delightful thing that appeared in my inbox last night! I thought it would be snail mail, but considering the pairing email would of course make all kinds of sense. :D It was all wonderfully formatted as well, which alas I have not the know-how to reproduce accurately, but it went something like this:
TORCHWOOD Internal Memorandum
From: Ianto Jones
Re: Care and feeding of pterodactyl
Could whomever keeps moving the feeding trough to the left of the mail centre, please cease and desist? I have had to rescue the daily papers twice this week, and the basket of biscuits (sent to us by that nice woman we rescued from the Weevil last month) has been decimated. And not by Owen, for once. Need I remind you all that shortbread is not on the list of recommended dietary requirements for pterodactyl? ( the rest of the messages (vague spoilers for the beginning of S2) )
is possibly the greatest person ever, because in fact the above was an additional gift, as she thought the card she'd sent me in the post was going to be late! Which it was, it came today straight from Myfanwe's clutches and now I definitely feel like a couple of snippets of the Torchwood universe have floated through the Rift over to me, or something.
I wish to goodness I could find my camera to take photos and show the beauty, but here is my best approximation of the card, though I fear I cannot fully capture the AWESOME.( cut! ) morebliss
, thank you so, so much, this is fantastic and I really appreciate the effort that went into it!
