Title: Heated
Rating: PG for dark themes.
Notes: Written for [ profile] tw100  Challenge 157, Heat.
Summary: doing what must be done, no matter the cost, is what Torchwood is here for.

I'm not sure whether I'll expand this at some point, but I've been mulling over this story idea thanks to this set of comments...

He stood in cold storage, watching the temperature dial creep upwards. He ignored his hangover, concentrating instead on what the Brigadier had said to him in the smoky shadows of that London pub.

"Sometimes we have to do the things that they cannot do for themselves..."

Ianto wasn't about to feel guilty for killing someone who had caused Jack so much pain.

"Your brother loves you," he said to the man lying before him. "I don't have that luxury."

He tasted copper in his mouth as he turned and walked away, leaving only the sound of his footsteps behind him.

should have been doing other things, but this is what I did instead:

Title: Team Pet
Characters: Ianto, Jack, Gwen, Andy
Rating: G
[ profile] tw100  Challenge: #156 Team Pet

Andy knew there was something those black-ops-but-not wankers weren't telling him as he idly wandered around the Plass trying to figure out what it was that Gwen had seen and he had missed.

"Your stray cat is back, Gwen," Ianto said, pointing at the CCTV feed.

Jack’s voice floated down from above, “I’ve always been fond of a ginger tom.”

Ianto looked up and found Jack’s eyes and smiled as he said, “We do what we do to protect blokes like that, yeah?”

“Yeah,” Gwen said softly to herself as she brushed her fingers across the grainy image on her monitor.

Title: As I Sit Here, Pen in Hand, Searching for the Words…
For: TW100 challenge #136 – Fire and Ice
Characters: Ianto Jones
Rating: PG

He found himself slipping, falling, ice slick and fire hot. He didn’t know where he was supposed to put these thoughts, this man, these feelings he never expected to feel. It wasn’t that his reality was shifting. He was very much in touch with cold hard reality. But he was MORE now. More, different, not better, really, just sometimes as he watched, his mind wandering to places previously undreamed of. His fingers itched to explore, and his dreams became even more jumbled than before. Glorious and terrifying, this breathless new way of wanting, this unbidden desire he could not control.

Have had severe lack of writing mojo lately. I don't want to say Children of Earth killed it ... but it may have kicked it in the shins a couple dozen times.

Combine that with being really busy with theater over the last weeks, and I've been pretty tapped out. Truthfully I still am. But I'd been mulling over this week's TW100 theme -- FROBISHER, and so I finally sat down and banged out 100 words on that doomed fellow. It remains to be seen if the words are any good in combination with each other, but it's something, right?


Elsewise, I am trying to figure out what to do with my weekend as the parentals will be in Pittsburgh for my mother's school retirees conference (which ought to be super fun with the case of vertigo she's be dealing with this week). Maybe I'll take a drive somewhere and look at leaves. Or maybe head over the mountain to the town of my birth to snap some photos.

Or maybe I'll just stay at home and play with some of the stuff I got for an upcoming online mixed-media class I'm taking that focuses on paint and ink techniques. I grabbed most of what I need last night at Michaels, although I am waiting till next week's coupon to get the heat gun.

Happy Weekend everyone!

Been encouraging myself to write at least 100 words a day. It usually leads to more than 100, which is all to the well, but I'm enjoying the challenge.

So much so that I hopped over to [ profile] tw100 and put up a drabble for this week's challenge: Moving On. Check it out if you've already seen CoE -- Day Four. Otherwise, wait a bit...

(goes off to hunker down for the duration as Day Four hits American air waves tonight.)
