Don't think anyone actually reads THIS part. But I had an idea and I need help!
I was listening to my lovely little iPod at work today, when "Hot One" came on. I don't know if it has been released outside of the Velvet Goldmine universe, but it is wonderful. Anyhoo, the lyrics go something like this:
Well, my starship doesn't want me
And neither does his world
I'm glad I caught you on my view screen, sailor
You're the grand one
Come and court me
'cause this wooing is what I'm wanting
When my spacesuit comes to warm me
And hold me like a god
I am the captain of the gravity, Maxwell
Everywhere I see your faces
As I was saying...I had a lightbulb go off. Or a timey-wimey detector go *ding*, as it were. I am thinking Torchwood Goldmine. It is so wonderful, my head won't stop spinning.
If you are reading this, are you familiar with the movie? If not, you should be. :) But, seriously, I need someone with whom to bounce ideas. Or, just bounce. There HAS to be someone there. Hello?
This is going to be laborious. And I have a very tiring job as it is....But I want to do this so very badly. I keep coming up against road blocks, though.
For example, I REALLY want Brian to be Ianto, but it just doesn't fit. Brian has to be Jack.
Curt: Ianto "You could be my main man." <3
Shannon: Gwen (Oh, so bloody perfect)
Jack Fairy: The Doctor?
Devine: Also the Doctor? I am having trouble with this one.
Mandy: Okay, seriously, where the Hell do I pick Mandy? Rose? Martha? But, no. Need a very intimate relationship with Jack. Huh.
Cecil: MAY be able to cut him, but...no, he still needs to be here. Cecil...Cecil. Hmm. I'm STILL getting The Doctor. Maybe different regenerations?
Arthur: Honestly, lost here. Owen? *Giggle* Tosh? There's the whole investigative journalism, sneaky hacker, loves Brian!Jack thing that I need to do. I am also thinking Eugene (that whole...I-Want-To-Play-Too! thing happening), but Eugene likes Gwen. Still, I can see Eugene jumping up and pointing at the screen: "That's me!"
I think that's it. Other characters pop up, but Brian's entourage could easily be Torchwood 3+.
And then, there are scenes that make no sense. I mean, some can be cut, sure...like Brian!Jack wanting to meet Curt!Ianto. It makes sense the other way around. That will come after I figure out characters, though. And, do I make it follow VG 'verse, or TW 'verse? *facepalm* What am I getting myself into!?
Ideas? Thoughts? Would you even read it if I wrote it? *Sigh*
