He won't fix it. We have to.

So... where's my Torchwood Virtual Season Four?

I know they still do those, though I don't know if they're calling them 'virtual seasons' these days. I was involved in The Sentinel Virtual Slash Season, and I remember there was one for Highlander: The Series which fixed it from 'Archangel' on. So... is TW fandom on this yet? If not, may I put forth the suggestion?

Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

I realized this morning why the ending pissed me off. It doesn't feel like it ended because it feels more like that "darkest hour" in stories. You know, where everything is at the lowest point, before things pick up towards the finale and shit starts to go their way.

This was Torchwood's (and Jack's) darkest hour. And it's over. Now what?

That's why I'm pissed. He abandoned it in the middle of the fucking story! *shakes fist in RTD's general direction*

Yeah but unless they fixed the horror from the end of ep4, would you really want to keep watching that travesty?

Nope. I wouldn't. I'm done with it. GDL left a message on his website saying thanks for all the memories. and it looks like TW may be getting the axe anyway. Whast are they gonna do without the show's frontrunner? Cause it certainly looks like Jack isn't coming back. I'm wondering if Moffat is gonna try to fix this with the 12th doctor.

My friend cosmic posted this to her lj: ETA: It just struck that when Jack's sitting in the hallway waiting and Alice comes in through the door, the shot and the posture are exactly like Jack - a million lifetimes ago - in the Gamestation prison, straight-back, just waiting for the Doctor's orders. Alice leaves and he deflates, and then he's off into the sunset. That moment is when Captain Jack Harkness dies. Whatever he is after, it's not Captain Jack anymore.
And that's true. And since this show loves crossover, I wonder how they'll deal with it in DW.

Also her comments are interesting regarding CoE and she agrees with the plot choices. I can see her point, but, *sigh* the whole thing still doesn't sit right with me.

I'm done with it too. Somebody posted a Save Ianto campaign, but I'm not even gonna bother. I don't trust RTD and his cabal. I just can't after this. It wasn't enough to kill Ianto, they had to completely BREAK Jack. I commented to someone else that Jack got me in the door when I started watching Torchwood... but Ianto got me to stay.

This Jack. This broken husk of Jack, wouldn't have got me in the door.

Anything to rescue me from the likes of this, that my brain has churned out this morning:

"This world drags at your skin now, rough and ill-fitting. It's too tight in the chest; you can scarcely breathe. It was never too small as long as he was in it.

You're sure it hung well on you before you knew him, before you knew the possibility of him. He came into your life, with his tailored suits and his perfect fit, so quiet and unassuming at first that you didn't notice it happening. He nipped and tucked until every fiber of you was interwoven with him. Your broken pieces fit with his like a puzzle. He wanted all of you, in a way you weren't prepared to give. You didn't realize until it was too late that you'd given it anyway."

What the shit is this? I don't write Torchwood!

Wow. That's beautiful.

Thanks. I sort of wish I knew where it came from, so I could move there permanently. Except I might drown in the angst.

The total irony is that there are a zillion times that I've compared the deep affection I have for Ianto to that I have for Blair. At least Blair got to be saved.

"he's not dead, he's just damp!"

And y'know, I felt bad for Jim, but I sorta can't bring myself to give a flying fuck for Jack at the moment.....

I KNOW. And I don't want to feel that way about Jack. I think that's the worst part for me. Yes, he's grieving, but it just doesn't feel right.

I know. I'm not even bothering with campaigns and whatnot to fix it. RTD obviously doesn't care. It's worse than the FK fiasco. At least then, I got it. They were canceled with no warning and there was a vague threat of Scifi taking over completely at some point. There was no need for this with TW.

This is what you're looking for.

I feel like I'm the only one who doesn't hate this story. I hate that Ianto died, and I think that anything they try to do from here out is doomed, because Ianto was the heart of the group... but if this were an ending, it would be a tragic, but well done one.

I didn't hate the story. It was a wonderful piece of television. But I don't want them to try and bring back a fourth series that will try to carry on with a broken husk. Captain Jack is broken and it will take a long time to fix him. Gwen has a family, she's not going to drop it all and go back to the way things were.

And damnit, I didn't want it to end so soon.
