Morning update

When Mr P finally got home from work yesterday, he was all sore-throaty and ucky. We sat on the couch and watched the 2nd and 3rd Torchwoods on my Macbook. Drifts a little into skiffy territory a few times; the second monster was a Star Trek monster (which secretly means it was a Golden Age SF monster); the third story a rather standard "man was not meant to know the future" plot; but on the whole, pleasant. The fiddly bits, I remind myself: the fiddly bits are what make these re-creations of standard stories interesting or not. And so far, interesting.

Captain Jack is a bit too young & pretty for my taste, but there are worse sins.

Query: how is it that the Welsh policewoman protagonist whose name I have mislaid has not put together the clues about Cap't Jack's origin? Is this a case of "character must be stupid so that viewers can feel smart"? 'Cause I hate that.

This morning's reading is mireille719's Grief, Written on Skin, Giles/Wesley, post-Gift. A watcherlove ficathon finished this weekend, so there should be lots more yummy G/Wes to read today. But that one grabbed me hard, and I think I'm going to read it a few times more before I move on.

Today I am feeling very very guilty about series fic left unfinished or un-moved-forward while I do NaNo and start another long story.
