Torchwood 5th Anniversary Challenge at tw-classic  
The 22nd of October is the 5th anniversary of Torchwood first airing, and over at [Bad username or site: @] we’re have a no pressure challenge to create something for it themed around the number 5.

So it could be a 5 things fic, a drawing/manip of 5 Torchwood characters, 5 icons, a fic about the team discovering a 5th Torchwood office or what Ianto did on the 5th anniversary of the fall of Torchwood 1, or a fan mix of 5 songs.

There are no sign-ups and no pressure to make anything, just take part if you want and try to post on or around the 22nd of October.

If you want to leave a prompt please comment at this post

Livejournal is still being spectacularly rubbish at the moment, you'd have though they might have learnt from the ddos attack in April a better way to deal with, but apparently not.

Which is more than a bit annoying as I wanted to post to tw-classic with a 'we've been running for a whole year today' post. And get people to suggest the sort of things that they'd like to happen on the comm.

So far we're running a monthly fic prompt, a weekly themed fic rec, and will be hosting a classic Torchwood big bang starting in October.

There has been the suggestion of having a lost files challenge - case fic set any when pre-series three.

I'd also like to get going a weekly chat thread (idea is shamelessly borrowed from primeval-denial) so people can talk about Torchwood,the wider Who 'verse, what they are writing, reading, listening to and just generally chat about anything fandom, or well anything really.

Like I said the idea is borrowed from Primeval-denial, it just seems to work so well at keeping a friendly, active fandom going even when for a couple of years their show was cancelled.

As some of you know I'm setting up a comm, [ profile] tw_classic for all things series one, two and pre series of Torchwood. More info here:

The question is when, for the purposes of this comm, should be the cut off point for for what is classic Torchwood.

[Poll #1604398]

New material, books, audio books, and radio plays, if they are set before the decided cut off point, will be included.

I'll keep this poll open until Saturday when the comm goes live.

I'm off to work now so I' not going to be able to reply to people before this evening.

New Torchwood comm  

I've been thinking about this for a while, and while I know some people are pleased with series 4 and current direction of the show, I also know that not everybody is.

As we get closer to series 4 we're going to start to get spoilers, filming reports and a lot of squee - and for those looking forward to S4 that's great. And once it starts new fic relating to it. And there's nothing wrong with that at all, it's what fandom does; it moves with the show.

However, if you're not looking forward to it, then being around comms where everybody else is excited and telling you that you should be as well isn't everybody's idea of fun.

So the idea is this: A community for all things Torchwood series one and two, as well as pre series.


So here it is: [ profile] tw_classic 

What the comm IS NOT:

A place to soapbox about the current direction of the show.
A place to rude about the shows creator or any of the actors/actresses.
A place to campaign about getting certain characters back on the show.
A place to bash characters.

What the comm IS:

A place to post for the fans of the original two series to post, art, fic and meta relating series one and two, and pre series Torchwood, discuss, chat and otherwise be fans of Classic Torchwood, in a fanwank free environment.

The comm is open to everybody who's a fan of Torchwood S1 and S2. You can still be a fan of later series (I'm not going to tell people what they should like), all the comm asks is that information relating to those series isn't posted there.

The plan at the moment is to open the comm on Saturday, with a flash fic challenge that will run until the 1st of September.

We'll also be having, monthly fic challenges, weekly themed rec posts, a caption competition and hopefully if there is enough interest, a book review club. There will also be a competition to design a header/banner for the community, with the winner getting a drabble written for them about a charcter/pairing of their choice.

Current Mood: hopeful
