Torchwood story that I liked! Recruitment, by Sphinxey. Crackfic set after Day One of Children of Earth. I wish more people would write CoE crack. I've seen boatloads of angst, but not much humor.

The anti-Gwen comm that asks "What's a Harpy Jack?" (no, I don't know what a "Harpy Jack" is, either) has chosen a winner for its Gwen-bashing contest, and it isn't my story. Now, that is just not right. I read the winning entry, and I'm sure my fic is way worse. Therefore, I should have won. Let's just ignore the fact that to be eligible, I would have had to join the comm, then post and properly tag my entry. As we all know, rules should apply only when they are convenient to us.

However! I found a three-year-old printout of an unfinished Spike/Xander story from my Buffy days and I really feel like I should wrap it up and post it, because I like most of what I wrote. This is good. Back when I wrote it, I even had the sense to save the file on a website instead of on my previous (dead) computer so I don't need to retype a thing.

While I'm at it, I ought to finish my ancient Buffy WIPs. I have an idea for how to end one of them, only it involves ripping off Jack London's Call of the Wild epilogue and totally going against the tone of the rest of the fic. I'm uncomfortable with the thought of sticking a downer ending on what has all along been an extended piece of fluff. It just doesn't seem right. I'll have to think of a way to include my new idea and conclude the story in an appropriately light manner.

It recently came to my attention that a certain comm is running an anti-Gwen contest. You all know who Gwen is, right? From Torchwood? The worst character on TV? Yeah, that Gwen, the one no one likes.

So, contestants can submit wallpapers, icons, fanfic, banners, etc. And, the bit that made my ears prick up, there's a prize, a lofty offering of six months' paid LJ account time to the winner.

Well, thought I, my graphics abilities are limited (read: craptastic), but certainly I can vomit up throw together carefully craft in the space of ten whole minutes an appropriately shitty Gwen-bashing fanfic entry guaranteed to be totally OOC and thus pleasing to the Gwen haters in question. I have a hard time imagining that anyone else will produce anything more "interesting" in any way, so I believe this contest is over. No need to wait for the deadline; gimme my prize now, dammit!

Title: The Gwen Bashers
Author: [ profile] ghost2
Rating: PG-13 for language and the presence of Gwen
Word count: 835 words of senseless and stupid Gwen hatred
Characters: Jack, Ianto, Owen, Tosh, and last and least, Gwen
Summary: Gwen gets what she's deserved for a long time.
Beta reader: I am randomly informing the world that I didn't use one.
A/N: I wrote this story in ten minutes, bet you can't tell!
I killed two birds with one stone. Not only is this story an entry in the ----------- comm contest, I used an unfilled prompt from the Gwenbash table: murder.
And now I present: The Gwen Bashers!

Gwen sucks and everyone hates her, blah, blah, blah )

Wow, that was kind of cathartic. Now I feel motivated to work on The Idiot's Guide to Growing Your Own TARDIS (Handy's attempts to escape an earthbound existence).

I signed up to cover Torchwood at [ profile] rec50. I previously had claimed Doctor Who, general fandom, for two rounds quite some time apart. I got up to the full 50 recs the first time, then just 14 on my second try. I think I can make it to 50 for TW on this first try.

Prompts table under here. )
