I had the time of my life at The Hub 2 and booked The Hub 3 immediately. But inbetween that time the unthinkable happened, Children of Earth, and I said that The Hub 3 would be my last.


We had such a fantastic time that [ profile] kitty_poker1, [ profile] sweet_exile and [ profile] accioscar and I have just this minute booked Gold tickets for The Hub 4. Yes, we are crazy, but we are also very happy. It's not even really about Torchwood anymore. Personally, I'm only on the fringes of that fandom now, but these events are so much fun and such good value for money, I can't stay away. More than anything, it's about hanging out with good friends and meeting new ones. And it's also all about the squishing of bellies.

So, who else is coming the The Hub 4? ~cough~ [ profile] piksa? ~cough~

In a land of myth and a time of magic, I promised more picspams. I did not deliver. But now, with time on my hands and Sneaky Friends Who Persuade, I have returned with a brand new offering. Before you click and gaze upon my chosen pics and accompanying commentary, let me please point out that it is strangely difficult to find unintentional crack within such a cracked-up episode. I hope you will not be disappointed and, as always, please remember that I only poke fun at shows that I adore. I do not mean what I say. I don't mean that either.

The Hub 3

Under the cut is my very inarticulate report and few photos from my weekend at The Hub 3 convention in Birmingham this weekend. I'm totally exhausted so please excuse the huge gaps in detail and memory.

OMG so tired )

I am back after a month-long, self-imposed internet ban. Exam. Fucked it up. Trying not to get down about it. Now I'm catching up on emails and bookmarking all the fic I missed. If there's anything you'd like me to see feel free to link me up. Does anyone have any Torchwood or Doctor Who news?

Ianto's Box is still unopened, although I have now managed to move it from one side of the room to the other. I feel this week might be the week. I have turned a corner. Not a large corner like on a road but more like a Fruit Corner. This week I just might lick the lid of life. Am I mixing up my yoghurts again?

In other news I'm all caught with SPN (except for last night's so don't spoil me!) and I'm obsessed with it, I'm not at all convinced by NCIS: LA, and I'm so glad to see my Tony DiNozzo again. This is my first time of actually watching each ep week by week and it's already driving me crazy. Need more!!! NOW!

Lastly, 7 DAYS UNTIL THE HUB 3, BABY!!! I can't wait to hug James Marsters again and I feel much calmer about hugging Gareth for a third time. I'm an old hand at this now. The scary shit will be in two weeks when [ profile] kitty_poker1 and I will be hugging Nicholas Brendon. OMGFAINTZ!

I have just posted a small Retro!Nightwing picspam HERE. The pics are from the 1995 4-issue run where Nightwing changes his costume from that godawful disco suit to the sexy and sleek costume we know today. I poke fun. But you already knew that ;o)

(Ianto's sister is going to be at The Hub! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!)

(Ianto's Box remains unmoved and unopened.)

I got my Hub 3 ticket today! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! G108, which I already knew, but I'm excited all over again. This definitely takes away the sting of being diagnosed with a fungal infection today. The doctor didn't actually say Ringworm, but one of the marks on my front is perfectly round so, uh, yeah. Nice. Just my luck.

Never mind. HUB-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B!!!!! I'm going to enjoy this Hub as though its the last because, for me, it probably will be.

I might nearly be ready to open Ianto's Box now.

EDIT: OMG, check out this RTD icon!!

I got my Hysterical Woman icon today and am proudly wearing it as my default. I'm seriously considering getting it turned into a badge to wear to The Hub. Except I have no idea how to do that.

Ianto's Box remains unopened, but I am now thinking of moving it from my study room to my bedroom as it is not unheard of for my nosey grandfather to open my post. My friend R says I should wrap it in a big black bow until I'm ready to open it. Me thinks she is being sarcastic. Regardless, I am considering it.

Have been watching season 1 of The Tudors on Blu-ray. I bought it for grandad because I thought it would be easy for him to follow because he tends to remember things like history over things he had for breakfast, but when he turned to me after episode six and asked 'Which one is Henry VIII?' I realised perhaps it was a bit beyond him. He still enjoyed it, though. Now it is my turn to watch it and I want to I finish it as quickly as possible. Don't get me wrong, I love it, but my history is not so hot so I have no idea which heads are going to roll and my nerves are in pieces! (Don't spoil me please, in any way.)

Now, lastly, repeat after me: I will not slash Henry VIII. I will not slash Henry VIII. I will not slash Henry VIII. I will not slash Henry VIII. I will not slash Henry VIII. I will not slash Henry VIII. I will not slash Henry VIII. I will not slash Henry VIII ...

It's official. I'm sick. Blaaaah. From the sounds of it, I'm not the only one who came home from the Hub with a cold, but I don't really care because I loved every single second of it and a few germs is a small price to pay (the credit card bill was a slightly higher price, but let's not get into that again). Had a nice long bubble bath this morning and went for a walk out for chips and that brightened me up. Since then I've changed my LJ header and farted about with my layout without much success. I really feel like playing with photoshop some more so I might go do that now. I want to do a short TW picspam while I'm in the mood, then do my QAF pic spams before doing another Merlin one.

Yeah, that's exactly what I'm going to do.

And while I'm doing that, you're all booking tickets to come to The Hub 3 with me in October, Y/Y?

I'm back from The Hub 2. I'm tired, my throat hurts, my voice is nearly gone and I'm almost totally broke. But I had the most awesome time. Everything was right and nothing was wrong. It was everything I dreamed it would be. I'd like to do a coherent report, but my eyes are rolling up into my head so I'll apologise now for the typos and randomness.

Cut for random excitement )
