I am[info]of_tarminster.

I'll also be over at Jack's Q&A,  but I'll be replying to comments here as well.

If you had fun with askworld, please visit http://www.myrednoseday.com/askcaptainjack to make a donation. Comic Relief supports projects in Africa and in the UK and is a really great charity. £1 is a meal for a homeless person. £5 pays for a child's school uniform. This year David Tennant and Catherine Tate participated in the funny. We're trying to raise £50 in total.
25th-Jun-2009 08:02 pm - We're down to the last wire now.

So if you've got anything to say, now's the time to say it. (T, I think you had a message for me from you-know-who?)

As for me: for all that this is going to be a part of my life more or less permanently blocked from my mind, it was fantastic. You are all fantastic. I'll be meeting you all up later, when I'm supposed to, and that's fantastic too.

24th-Jun-2009 09:51 pm - All good things...
Well, actually, I'm not entirely sure if this qualified as a "good" thing, per say, but there was an element of fantasticness to it.

We've arrived in the 52nd century, and are now trying to get to the mindwipe without alerting Jabba the Boss to our (read: my) presence. Which is...

Actually, the fact that he just exploded all over us probably helps with that. But somehow, I think the alarms are summoning guards won't be helpful at all. Run!
Well, after several weeks of holding the Dilgar on behalf of the Shadow Proclamation, they seem to have gotten tired of waiting and come for him themselves.

Unfortunately, they seem to think that I'm guilty of holding him hostage and are intent upon capturing me. Andy went to go back and check in with the Heddlu and T is obviously stuck in the TARDIS with the Dilgar. I should probably get them to take him while they're here, but I don't much like the idea of them taking me- or getting their hands on the TARDIS. Can one of you grab the Dilgar and escort him into the path of the Judoon? You should have no trouble finding them, they'll be the rhinos with big guns.

UPDATE: T! Jack's coming to pick up the Dilgar! He says to leave him outside tied-up and he'll take it from there!
16th-Jun-2009 08:30 pm - Wow...
Next time I ask you for a map to trouble I'll have to keep in mind that you're a very thorough person, Ianto. I'd tell you all about it but I'm not sure where or when to start.
8th-Jun-2009 08:44 pm - Being back in Cardiff

...Is really, really strange. For one thing, it almost feels like I'm back somewhere, which in addition to being strange is a bit frightening. I don't do domestic. It makes me break out in hives. For another, we never did pinpoint who was stealing Rift energy.

I'm going out for a walk. Don't mind me.

Well Too Bad

The phone was originally a Nokia N96, but has since been modified so heavily that only the shell remain of the original hardware. While most of the functions pertained solely to the facility we just crashed, it does still work as a mobile, and a little snooping revealed that the speed dail contained the numbers for UNIT, MI5, Downing Street, and MoD facilities. There were several pictures saved in it as well, but they were mostly of teletubbies. So, I'm forced to conclude that I don't know what to conclude; I'll just keep the phone with me, maybe the original owner will call.

The pack of holding is now empty, except for the tag, which reads "Bad Wolf Products, wash with like colors."

In other news, aiming for Cardiff has actually landed us in Cardiff. Present day Cardiff, even! We're in time for movie night and/or the Children of Time party. (Jack, can't T get some sort of diplomatic immunity as my companion so she can go?) I tried to tell Andy and T this, but all I got in reply was a lot of thumping. Between the two of them and the Tardis not listening to me, I feel almost surplus to requirements.


If we do end up having a movie night, can I make a few suggestions?Collapse )



I've tapped into... but the controls... sealed, so no... poke. I need something... bulbous. Tulips, perhaps.

Anyway, I've tried... there should... lift coming up. Signal should... you get... What bothers... cluster isn't based in... disengenuous technology.. very bad. They seem to... other planets, including Earth... humans... Vinegar. We may... after all. I don't like it.

I'm going to wait for... lift. Andy, I need... message gets through.

It's easy to... Fantastic.
2nd-Jun-2009 04:10 pm - Huh.

Most of the Stolians in this caravan are refugees escaping persecution- by which I mean cyborgs. That probably helped give us away. Or maybe it was the anti-grav boards. Or possibly the Darth Vader jokes.

Anyway, we all got picked up by what passes for law enforcement here (again) and were bundled into a transport shuttle headed off to parts unknown. After a bit of fancy footwork with the sonic screwdriver and a rather fantastic bit of lateral thinking involving some paneling we managed to switch places with our guards. The shuttle itself is on autopilot (even guards don't seem to know where we're going, although they have done this before so I don't think we'll be vaporized upon impact) so the only thing to do seems to be to wait until we arrive and see what happens.

Hopefully, it'll happen before the Children of Time Party. If not, we may fudge a little with the time lines.

31st-May-2009 03:21 pm - You're wrong, T.

They do have police here! And they do do things! They were very efficient when it came to arresting me, at least.

This prison isn't nearly as nice as the one the laser rugby teams came from, so I'll be escaping soon. But if I don't show up in a few hours, you know where to find me.

28th-May-2009 08:32 pm - Well.

Not Cardiff. Not Egypt, ancient or otherwise. However...

I'm excited! This is my first time visiting during this time period.

Oncoming Storm

This was the view around the time when the humans dozed off:

This is the view now:
There was a secondary wave this morning right before breakfast, but I'm hoping that by this time tomorrow the water will be well and truly receded. The TARDIS should be where we left it; the only problem will be digging it out from under the wreckage.
24th-May-2009 03:07 pm - Thus far...

Andy, T and I have been to mid 1900's Cardiff, late 7800's Remora, and are now in early 2300's Calcutta. I've come to the conclusion that the TARDIS has decided that it needs to be wet for a while. I've left it outside, and we're now wandering around the floating parts of the city eating Bad Wolf Burger (just don't ask what's in it). I'll let you know how things progress some hours later.

Edit: We won't be going outside for a while...

Edit: I've tsunami-proofed the segment of city we're in, and am talking others through the process now. Even so, this is likely going to be rough (and finding the TARDIS afterwards is going to be harder). I'll catch you up later.
23rd-May-2009 03:34 pm - Fanastic.
Well Too Bad
Okay, Andy and T, you're done. I have been walking along this beach all night long, and you can't have been going the entire time. If you like, I'm sure you can find the fixings for sex on a beach in the TARDIS.

Cross your fingers, everybody. Hopefully the TARDIS will fly correctly more than twice in a row...
