10:44 pm - If I were a super hero, just what would my powers be?
Firstly, to my friends and flistees of the Melbourne variety, would anyone be interested in coming to see The Dark Knight with me next week?

I'd probably have to book tickets this weekend if we want to see it on the first day, but anyone who's interested:

Wednesday next week (ie. the 16th). Sessions are at 6:15, 8:30 and 9:30 - or we could go in the afternoon.

Let me know, plz, as I quite want to see it before the comms I lurk at explode with spoilers.

While I'm on the subject of Batman, reasons why Jack Harkness is Batman... and the comment thread is filled with people debating what that makes other Torchwood and Doctor Who characters (The debate on Ianto is especially amusing).

Oh, and speaking of superheroes, I went and saw Hancock today - that Will Smith thing. Which was... interesting. I wouldn't call it bad, per se, but it had the distinct feeling that two entirely different movies had been smushed together. And I liked the "PR Guy helps a dodgy superhero clean up his act in a realistic world" one rather more than the other.

And back to your regularly scheduled fandom.

I am filled with epic amounts of OMG SQUEE for the recent SJA casting spoilers. I also hope that it means something for the future of Doctor Who, too.

And to be somewhat selfish, I've started a Masterlist for post Series Four fic that features Martha in a significant way. However, it's impossible for me to check everywhere for suitable fic, so if you know of any relevent fics please drop me a line.

Feel free to pimp that list everywhere and anywhere you so desire. The more people who see it and drop links, the easier maintaining it will be.

That SJA spoiler caused MAJOR amounts of squee around my LJ yesterday when I posted it - which was terrific fun after all the gloom of the weekend/beginning of the week!

I want SPOILER plus Ten plus Martha in an SJA ep at once - although the universe would probably implode at the sheer awesomeness of those three PLUS SJS in one episode! (Ah, who cares, we can always build another universe, right?!) :D

I'd heard rumours a while back, and was up far too late the other day waiting for people to upload their photos on the DWF.

That would be nifty. Though I am still hoping one of the specials is about UNIT, with Martha and SPOILER guest starring.

...I can still dream...

I share your dream - that would be completely awesome!

- seeing your icon, reminds me that someone on my FList expressed the desire to see it happen with Real People! :D

I have been supporting this idea since the specials were announced.

...If I say it enough times, it will happen, right?

And yes, that would be lovely to see.

Hey, if everyone thinking "Doctor" at the same time can make him get his powers back, then I don't see why not!

And yes, that would be lovely to see.

It would!

Isn't there a quote from Gareth David Lloyd where he describes Ianto as being Alfred to Jack's Batman? On torchwoodcoffee, I think? Ever since I first read that, I've agreed with it.

I think Tosh could be Barbara Gordon aka Oracle, with her mad computer skillz and general fighty awesomeness, Gwen could be Vicki Vale because of the way she never lets a mystery go, and Owen I'm struggling with...any suggestions?

That was way back. And I really don't want to think of Alfred and Bruce like that, thanks.

Well, in the thread itself, the two suggestions for Owen are Jason Todd (Red Hood), and Oliver Queen (Green Arrow).

Both of which sort of work.

"And I really don't want to think of Alfred and Bruce like that, thanks"

Well, no. Not like that. But the general Master-Servant thing, yes.

I'm not familiar enough with Green Arrow but Owen as Jason Todd...possibly.

Yes, I know what I mean. But these days, when I think of Jack and Ianto's relationship, I don't really think of the Master-Servant thing first.

I'm not hugely familiar either, but the description in the thread, Considers himself a ladies man, grumpy towards batman and sarcastic fits what I've seen.

What, the one on the post?

Pretty, ain't it.

I am attempting to diversify my fandoms covered in my icons.

Heya! Just got back from Adelaide and would love to go to the Dark Knight (and thus actually meet you) - have you booked yet?

Not as yet - I can try tomorrow morning. Or buy them online now, if you want to pay an extra dollar. Which session would you want to go to? I think the 8:30 is sold out, but the other two I listed don't seem to be full yet.

*gasp* A whole dollar? I don't get paid until Friday but I think I can swing it :) . Whatever's easier for the majority regarding the sessions, I knock off at 3:30PM and I'm quite happy to bum around before the movie or have a nanna nap.

Where are you planning to go? I know where the ones at Melb Central are, and...that's about it. I've got the directional sense of a poodle in a washing machine.

6:15 I think works best for me - means I don't get bored killing time after the shops close. It also seems to have plenty of seats still open (but is busy enough to be a fun crowd). And yes, I'm thinking Melbourne Central, because that's the easiest to get to for me.

You still qualify as student, or adult ticket?
