Title: In Losing What I Am, I Become Who We Are
Authors: qafkinnetic & solvingfor42
Fandom: Torchwood
Note: This story was written as part of the Torchwood Collaboration Festival. For more information, please visit here: tw_collab_fest
Characters/Pairings: The Torchwood Team, sans Jack.
Word Count: 43,192
Rating: R
Warnings/Spoilers (Highlight to read): Warning for violence and major character death.
Beta: snarkymuch, Neil's parents, Tumblr user consultingmidgardian.
Summary: The discovery of a mechanical Weevil beneath Cardiff starts a chain of events that threatens to destroy Torchwood. Jack is still missing, Ianto seems to be going mad after an injury and Owen is forced to confront his worst fears. When the people of Cardiff start turning into clockwork automatons, things seem hopeless. And then, when Owen decides to investigate Ianto’s strange behaviour, they get worse.
Authors' Notes: SO MUCH LOVE for our betas: snarkymuch and Neil's parents, and our Brit-picker, consultingmidgardian. We'd also like to thank The SCP Foundation, where we found a key plot element.
This fic was supposed to be short -- we decided to aim for a thousand words, expecting it to expand to two or three times that. But Neil tends to write mostly novel-length fics, and Lex wanted an actual plot, and we found all these great ideas, and the next thing we knew it was over 40,000 words! As Neil said when we were trying to think of a title: 'Somehow I think "The Epic Fic that Would Not End Oh God" would convey the wrong mood.'

This is too long to fit in an LJ post, so I'm just going to link to the fic on Archive of Our Own: http://archiveofourown.org/works/445701

Too Many Choices

I've finally gone through and added a bunch of communities in fandoms I'm interested in. Fandom is so bloody huge that it's really hard to figure out where to go or what to do. I guess most people end up in fandom through friends, so they have a natural starting place, but I kind of stumbled into it by accident and I don't actually know anybody. That makes it a bit harder. So I'm following a bunch of different fandom comms and I guess I'll just see what inspires me to write and which comms seem friendliest. Thank the gods LJ/DW lets you filter your friends' list!
