Thank you!

Today I bring a link with an actionfigure story of a friend, theme: Halloween! The Torchwood team visits a spooky house. Although I think that the beast is rather cute... LOL

The Torchwood team is baking Christmas cookies in Tosh's kitchen.

Image

Tosh is rolling out the dough.

Image

On the table we have all incredients, tools and even a cook book.

Image

Gwen is mixing the eggs.

Image

She should be more careful though...

Image

... as some already have hit the ground.

Image

Now let's have a closer look at the kitchen.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Ianto is rolling dark and light dough together.

Image

Then he cuts off black and white checkered cookies.

Image

Jack is more concerned where to put his stocking to get it filled.

Image

He's also trying to teach them how to bake cookies. As if they didn't know!

Image

To distract him, Tosh sends him to the fridge to get out more eggs.

Image

Jack is wondering about some of the stuff Tosh keeps in her fridge.

Image

In the meantime, Tosh is starting to cut out the cookies.

Image

The bell does remind Jack of the Daleks and he asks her to please do just round cookies.

Image

Then Gwen is putting the baking tin into the oven.

Image

Someone should have watched them, though...

Image

They only realize that something is wrong when dark smoke is coming out.

Image

Jack tries to put out the flames with a fire extinguisher.

Image

But the neighbours already called the fire brigade.

Image

They get a dressing down by one of the men.

Image

Tosh has to put the dark cookies into the trash.

Image

So they make a new batch. Gwen is also putting some icing on.

Image

Ianto is washing the dishes in the meantime.

Image

Finally they can sit down and relax...

Image

Image

... and eat their cookies.

Image

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda! Fröhliche Weihnachten und ein Frohes Neues Jahr!

Thanks!

Here is a new story which I made after a fanfiction which I loved. It's called "Music and Monsters" and can be read here: http://doctorwho.livejournal.com/7341951.html

So I could not resist making an action figure story out of it, with her permission of course. The lines between the pictures are exact quotes from the story. There is even a video among the pictures this time - I am upgrading! This is only part 1/2 so there will be more for the last chapter of the story. Enjoy!

*******

And then the MC shouted “Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Torchwood!” The curtain rose. The crowd screamed - For us!. Gwen marvelled, dizzy with it for a second-as Jack raised his arms in appreciation, basking in the applause. Jack and his ego. Then Owen began to lay down a rhythm, Tosh followed him with a sweet electricky keyboard chiming, and Gwen let a grin split her face as she and her guitar chimed in with the lick that began Everything Changes.

Image

Ianto might be terminally eccentric, with his suits, his non-sequiturs, his coffee fixation and his stuffed pterodactyl. (Its name was Myfanwy, apparently, and it served as the band’s mascot.) But he could make that sax of his weep like an angel on a Saturday night, tired of being good all week and hoping for a beer. And he was no small talent as a songwriter, either.

Image

Image

Owen’s drumming rumbled down into your bones and pulsed inside your spine.

Video of Owen drumming: http://s137.beta.photobucket.com/user/D ... 8.mp4.html

Image

Tosh’s keyboard stylings were as perfect and delicate as silicon chips.

Image

And Jack - Jack had a voice as rich as Ianto’s coffee, full of passion and insinuation, and a smile and a wink that was pure showman.

Image

Image

Sometimes Gwen felt a bit intimidated by how good they all were. But jamming with them...well, it had really inspired her to push herself. And now her guitar-playing shone as never before.

Image

Image

Image

Tosh began to pick out one last tune. Owen picked up the beat, Gwen the melody, and Jack whooped with delight and began to sing: “Come out, Ianto, don’t let me wait! You Catholic boys start much too late, but sooner or later it comes down to fate. I might as well be the one...”

The audience screamed again at the Torchwood finale. And Torchwood rocked.

Thank you both!

But Rheidol, my instruments are not fridge magnets. They are doll house miniatures which even come in a fitted black box, like this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1-12th-Scale- ... 5d33edb9aa They are usually about 10-12 GBP, so I guess your magnets would be cheaper than that! I'll have to remember that for the future.

Blimey, they're making a profit!! :shock: Maybe on the boxes...the magnets are only £4.99. And I guess if they're on the RIGHT sort of model, the magneticism might be a benefit!!
