Over-blown emotional reaction to spoilers for Torchwood

Specifically the stuff for the next UK episode, Adam.


J/I fans will want to skip, as it's pretty unseemly unless you're just here to gloat.





Here's the stuff that provoked the outburst.

I know I've seen most of it before, but somehow the "star-crossed lovers" bit really makes me reach for the bucket.



OH GOD! PUKEPUKEPUKEPUKEPUKE!!!! Whywhywhywhywhywhywhywhywhywhywhy?


Most of all why me? Again, how can I get one of the most gogeous men in the world in a cool show with canon-slash and hatehatehate with the white hot heat of a thousand blazinig suns, the m/m pairing? I went through three seasons of having to find every scrap of House/Wilson subtext I could find throughout the Stacy arc, and the Half-Wit kiss, and all the third season every girl must find out irresistible crap, and now that I've got John Barrowman kissing a man right there in front of my face, it makes me want to puke my guts out as though I were some far-right homophobe from the buckle on the Bible Belt.


Come on Catherine Tregenna, you wrote "Captain Jack Harkness." You KNOW better than anybody what Star Crossed Lovers look like. Why do you think this is it?

I'm not asking for Jack/Owen canon much as I'd like it. I'm not even asking for Jack NOT to be fucking Ianto as much as I wish it with every fiber of my being. I'm just begging on my fucking hands and knees that it not be portrayed as twoo-wuv and god-forbid something that's important to Jack than, the Doctor.

FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK!!!!! You get the idea.



How can a show I love so much be causing me this much pain, based on spoilers?

Of course if there is some redeeming quality and it doesn't play out that way, I'll come back here and apologize. Or at least do the happy dance.


ETA: BTW, does anyone know where to find the Torchwood forum on TWoP that's in synch in the UK schedule, rather than the US?
