Welcome to badly_knitted's Fluff Emporium, home to mostly fluffy Torchwood fanfic and other things I may see fit to randomly include.

To answer all the questions I'm sure everyone is asking (pause for hysterical laughter): Yes, I am the same badly_knitted you may have noticed over on LJ; No, I'm not abandoning LJ, at least not for the moment, depends on whether or not they resolve the whole twitter/facebook debacle. In the meantime, this journal will make it easier to keep up with - and comment on - the fics written by those of you who, for understandable reasons, are only allowing comments over here. I've not taken that step yet - I think I've managed to block the facebook/twitter link thingies, but being a technological dunce I'm not certain. I'm not on facebook or twitter by choice, so if anyone spots anything to do with me over there, I'd be grateful if you'd let me know.

For now, I will be posting the fics on my LJ over here as well - call it a backup plan, just in case.

If anyone pops over to read, then I hope you'll enjoy, comments would also be welcome. Don't be shy, introduce yourselves, I don't bite!

Hey - do you mind if I add you? I feel like I could learn a lot from your enthusiasm...

Thanks! I'm so glad it was okay to ask. :)

I'm familiar with Torchwood. I never finished the last season but other than that... (Looking at your journal makes me want to do a re-watch so badly - I miss Tosh!)

I kind of feel the same. I hoped things would pick up after CoE, but I get two episodes in and just kind of ... stopped.

Oh, Ianto's a complete darling! Tosh is my favourite but Ianto's a very close second. And of course, I absolutely adore Jack (who doesn't?).

Thanks! I look forward to seeing you on my reading page in the very near future. :)

I can see a couple of updates already!

Ianto's so good-natured though. I can remember seeing him for the first time and being like: 'You're adorable, please don't turn out to be a terrible person'. And amazingly he didn't...

You can still totally be Tosh when you grow up, if you want. :)

CoE was a bit all over the place really, wasn't it? I can understand why a lot of fans are just like ... nope.

That's an impressive back log - total life goals right there! I can imagine things getting like that with fic_promptly, though. After taking part last week I basically just want to fill everything...

At the moment I'm thinking of doing a series of short Hunger Games fics. I went on a huge Hunger Games fic binge a few months back and would really like to contribute something of my own. I'm thinking of focussing on Mags because ... well, I love Mags.

I finished the first draft of one fic last night. I'm so pleased with myself. All I need to do now is edit it...

I read the books first so I'm biased but ... I'd go for the books first. The films are good but so many of the characters are whitewashed. For that reason alone I'd recommend going for the books first.

I didn't know that - who was CoE originally written for? :o

Good luck with your writing too! It sounds like you've got plenty of stuff planned...

Good luck with that! I'm being super slow with my editing but I'll get it done eventually, I'm sure...

They're worth it if you can find the time. I've got a bit of a thing for YA trilogies at the moment. There's so many around so I'm never short of material.

That's super weird. It totally shows though - there's something off about both of those seasons. TV screenwriters baffle me sometimes. It's like they have this secret urge to do things that they know will be unpopular. :P

I'll have to check out that community - it sounds wonderful! I love that type of ... would you still call it crossover fic? I'm not sure. I seem to remember there was something similar over here, but with romance novels...

I hope your editing went well. :)

The last 'His Dark Materials' book is a nightmare. I started to read that when I was twelve. I still haven't finished it. There were so many characters - I can't keep track of them all. It's like Philip Pullman's answer to A Game of Thrones. :o

What I hate is the 'hey guys, you know what would be totally edgy'. Like, no. No no no no no...

Well, it looks like I'm officially never leaving the internet ever again...

That sounds like a plan. There's definitely more on here than you could see in one lifetime. ;)

I think making your viewers feel happy/empowered is totally underrated. Like, why is it like a badge of honor for screenwriters to make people feel uncomfortable or scared? I don't get it at all...

You're braver than me - I'm a total baby when it comes to doorstop books. Which is a shame: it totally limits my intake of sci-fi/fantasy. I think this is largely the reason why I read so much YA...

You see, this is why I roll my eyes whenever anybody complains about e-readers...

You have to have some comic relief. I think sometimes people get 'realism' confused with 'violence and misogyny' as well which is just ... no.

I know right? People do loads of awful stuff, but we've been known to do some good stuff too. Occasionally. ;)

Personally I like the option not to have to deal with tiny writing - if the font is too small I can't concentrate, at all. Holding a book is nice, though, and having a pile of finished books that you can look at is super satisfying.

I hope you get your books back soon - it is nice to be surrounded by books.

I think so, too. :)
