“In the Deep of the Night” (Torchwood fan fiction)

It’s Thursday! It’s fan fiction! I know you don’t care! Sorry, I didn’t mean to say that. Most readers probably don’t care, but I do. So here’s another piece of Torchwood fan fiction (again more or less hurt/comfort). Written in the present tense, which was a lot harder than it sounds. I don’t usually do that and I kept switching to past tense… Oh, and SPOILERS – it’s set between “Children of Earth” ep. 2 and 3.

Before the actual piece starts, I want to give a very quick shout out to the wonderful mobile puzzle game Doctor Who: Legacy (available for Android, iOS and Kindle). It’s completely free to play (yes, you can buy stuff in-game, but you will have the same amount of fun if you don’t – trust me). They recently added Jack to the list of playable characters and Ianto will follow with the next update in about two weeks! So go download! (after you’ve read my work 😉 )

“Fy Mrawd” (Torchwood fan fiction)

It’s Thursday! No, wait, it’s FAN FICTION THURSDAY! (that’s a thing, right?) As usual when I’m out of ideas – erh, no, that’s not the reason I am posting this piece. Anyways, before I do, a short announcement: my fan fiction can now also be found on the “Archive of Our Own”. For now, I will first post my pieces here on my blog and then (a few days or so later) on the Archive. And now for another piece of Torchwood fan fiction, this time written from the point of view of Rhiannon, Ianto’s sister. The title is Welsh and means “my brother”. SPOILERS for Children of Earth.

“I Heart J” (Torchwood fan fiction)

Second post of the week. I hope I can keep this pace, I wouldn’t want to simply fill this blog with old WordPlays (I will resume that next week, though). Today, it’s once again fan fiction. Instead of Downton, this time I’m visiting Cardiff for the first of probably quite a few Torchwood fan fics. This is my first one, it’s quite long (around 3,000 words), probably qualifies as hurt/comfort (because Jack/Ianto…), and contains SPOILERS for the entire first two seasons. If you should feel inspired to write a NSFW follow up, please feel free to (and post a link to it in the comments).

Why Birds of a Feather Don’t Always Make the Best Couple

A super long post to celebrate my new theme. This time, I get analytical (sort of). I’m writing this without knowing the result – it’s called blogging, after all. The topic is “love relationships”, or more precisely “what makes a successful love relationship?”. The other day I read an article on online dating sites which are usually operating with a match-making algorithm based on the idea that, well, birds of a feather flock together: the more similar the partners are (e.g. hobbies, character traits, values…), the more likely they are to have a long-lasting love relationship. Only it isn’t true.
