Comment to be added. I'll most likely add you back unless I have a very good reason not to.
I do occasionally go through and clear out my flist so if you got taken off it's most likely because I hadn't seen you post in a while. Comment and I'll add you back :)

Book List

Since I have a lovely shiny Kindle this year I'm anticipating doing more reading than ever, so I figured I'd have a go at another book list to try to keep track of the crazy amount I'm reading.
Here we go

Running Total: 15 books in 2012
Cabin Pressue - Rabbit of Negative Eupho

(no subject)

My cat died yesterday. I'm still slightly in denial I think. My mum called just after I finished work and said she didn't think he'd make it through the weekend and what did I want to do. I got straight on the train. I had a few hours of cuddling him before his breathing deteriorated and we finally took him to the vets.
I held him while he went to sleep.

We had him twelve years, he'd just made it to 16 years old earlier this week. We got him just before I got ill, and he's been there through everything. I miss him.

DW - Ten/Sarah Jane - Hug

No-one's ever going to forget you

The universe has to move forward. Pain and loss, they define us as much as happiness or love. Whether it's a world, or a relationship... Everything has its time. And everything ends.
-Sarah Jane Smith in Doctor Who 'School Reunion'

Elisabeth Sladen has passed away aged 63

Everywhere I look today: twitter, tumblr, Livejournal, Facebook, they're all filled with Elisabeth Sladen and Sarah Jane Smith. At least two very different generations of children grew up watching Sarah Jane either on Doctor Who or on the Sarah Jane Adventures. Those of us who were not born at quite the right time for this to form part of our childhood TV viewing were still introduced to her somehow, whether through repeats or videos or DVDs, or as grown ups watching her in the new series and in SJA.

I was lucky enough to meet Lis Sladen only last summer, less than a year ago in fact. She was a lovely person and I'm so grateful I got the chance. I can't really believe that she's gone such a short time later.

Goodbye, Sarah Jane. The whoniverse will never forget you.

Sarah Jane: Is this the last time I'm ever going to see you?
The Doctor: [Brief pause] I don't know. I hope not.
Sarah Jane: [Smiling] Goodbye, Doctor, until the next time.
The Doctor: Don't forget me, Sarah Jane.
Sarah Jane: No-one's ever going to forget you.

Good Night, Folks.

Andy Hallett dies aged 33

Andy Hallett
04/08/1975 - 29/03/2009

The Whedonverse has lost another of it's most shining stars.
Andy Hallett was a talented actor and singer. I fell totally in love with his character from the first time he appeared on Angel, the show would not have been the same without him. Lorne's exit from the show broke my heart, possibly more than any other part of the final episode, but he also gave us humour during some of the darkest episodes of the show and of course he was able to make use of his incredible singing voice in more than one episode.
I regret that I never had the chance to meet him, but from all reports he was a lovely, genuine guy.
At 33 years old he had so much talent and so much more to give to the world.
To borrow from Lorne himself: Good night, Lorne.

You will be missed.

Three Torchwood Fics

As promised I have fic :D. All three of these were written for writerinadrawer.
I decided to wait a couple of weeks and then post a bunch of them rather than spam everyone with one each week. So there should be a few more in a couple of weeks, or less if I find myself voted into a drawer.
Amazingly they're all gen, maybe hints of slash or future slash in the second two but only if you have your slash goggles on and really squint ;)
