Since it's been a shamefully long time since my last post, I thought I'd do a quick update.
For the last year and a half or so, my obsession has been collecting perfume oils. Mostly from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, but also recently from Nocturne Alchemy, as the latter has a cool Egyptian theme that I love. I've spent days on the various forums for these sites, reading reviews and discussing awaited updates.
However, in the last month or so, all my time and thought has been spent on one thing and one thing only: Torchwood.
For those that don't know (i.e. my brother if he reads this), Torchwood is a BBC TV show that is a spin-off of the latest incarnation of Doctor Who. I'll not spoil any plot issues here (I'll save any spoilers for other, later entries), but it's about a secret organization that protects normal society from aliens and alien tech that falls through a rift in time and space. It has a real sci-fi/X-Files feel and a fantastic cast. It's meant for adult audiences only, so that means we get more realistic violence, relationship issues, swearing, sex (seems like bisexuality is a requirement to work for Torchwood, LOL!) etc. I can't recommend it highly enough to anyone that's even the slightest bit open-minded about sexuality and likes sci-fi! Or that find the idea of angsty office boys, wearing suits and speaking with sexy Welsh accents appealing ;)
I've managed to practically mainline the entire first two seasons in a matter of a couple weeks, and I'm desperate for more! I've bought the 6 books from Amazon UK, subscribed to the official magazine, and I've got the first season on DVD and the second on my computer until I can buy the DVDs for that too. I've read dozens and dozens of fanfics, and it still seems like not nearly enough.
Thank you, thank you to sirenprincess, tarotgal, and Jill for convincing me to give Torchwood a chance! *HUGS*
