And already I love Torchwood fandom for Jack/Hand making doctard and screwdoctor look comparatively normal. ;-)

As someone recently said of that pairing, it's frightening, it's funny, it's fandom.

random question - there was a comment on digitalspy (I think), saying that fans could 'join' torchwood through one of the official sites, and thereby access more things. Do you know how/know where I could find out how to do that?

Noooo idea, sorry. The only official Torchwood sites I know of are listed above (except for the 'visit Torchwood House' site, which definitely doesn't have anything like that). Check them out, or go ask around torch_wood – the hive mind of the fandom would know more about this than I :).

What a lot of work! Nice job.

You may want to add tw_flashfic under fanfiction. It's a challenge community and some really good stuff has been posted there.

I've recently stumbled upon a comm called tw_in_cardiff, which is set up to be a resource (maintained by a Cardiff local.) on general Cardiff questions and also on the welsh language.

Because I'm a complete Cptn John slut:
guns_n_poodles for ANYTHING Captain John Hart related,
roguetimeagents for the Captain Jack/Captain John pairing, and
2meninatimeloop for fic, etc... focusing on the 5yrs Jack and John spent in the timeloop we heard tell about- this one's pretty quiet, but it does get good stuff when it gets it!

I've created a new community on LJ called JackRhys for all the interactions between Captain Jack and Rhys Williams--Gwen's boyfriend. Gen and slash friendly. Discussion and fic welcome!
