Myfanwy

icarusdusoleil  asked:

I love your orc lady!! For the kiss meme, could I request a 1 (on the forehead) with your lovely orc woman and my Myfanwy please? 8D

I’m glad you like her! These two would get into so much trouble together…

Crunchberry the Punch Wizard likes to travel in good company and everyone in her crew gets a flower crown so she can keep a good head count when going through dungeons.

I wanted to do a romantic comedy with Jack and Ianto, and the obstacle between them getting together is a pterodactyl! But Gareth added a wonderful depth to it, when, unseen by Jack, he starts to cry at the end. Obviously, the unspoken thing is that Ianto wants to get in to Torchwood so he can keep his girlfriend Lisa alive, so that’s a beautiful bit of empathising by Gareth that wasn’t in the script. That’s the extraordinary thing about this cast: they never stop creating.

Subject: Torchwood Three’s Pteranodon

Classification: Pet

Name: Myfanwy (Note: The name, meaning ‘my beloved’, is of Welsh origin. (Naturally.) And it’s pronounced 'Muh-vah-noo-ay’. Not 'My fanny’. And I named her for a Welsh Goddess who sung beautifully. Jack and Owen don’t appreciate my humor at all -.I.J.)

History: In 2007, this Pteranodon fell through the Cardiff Space-Time rift before finding a temporary home in the countryside; emerging only at night to hunt sheep. She was tracked down and corned in a warehouse by Ianto Jones. After teaming up with Captain Jack Harkness, the pair managed to sedate her. She was relocated to the Hub where she currently resides. (Note: If not for her, I wouldn’t have gotten a job at Torchwood Three. I have no problem feeding her extra chocolate weekly for that.-I.J.)

Facts:

  • Her food habits include chocolate (Note: Preferably dark- I.J.) sheep, birds, and any food coated with a special barbecue sauce developed by Suzie Costello.
  • She is trained to never attack a member of the staff, to never make a mess of her meals, and to return to the hub if Captain Jack Harkness activates a subsonic signal on his watch. (Note: Myfanwy seems to be protective of the hub and it’s staff. She’s saved Tosh from falling to her death as well as protected it from alien intruders. Must be because we feed her.- I.J.)

Fragments : Ianto’s story

“Ianto Jones, born August 19th 1983. Able student but not exceptional. One minor conviction for shoplifting in your teens. Number of temporary jobs, mainly a drifter, until two years ago you join the Torchwood Institute in London. Junior researcher. Girlfriend, Lisa Hallett.”

Ianto would be great with pets

He’s amazing with Myfanwy, equally amazing with Untitled, and I’d bet he’s great with animals….

He’d adopt a cat he finds on the street, even if it’s temporary, because he knows Cardiff streets are dangerous. Or a dog. He’d probably give them away, because he’s busy with Torchwood, but he’d love and care for them. Alien pets that need to be kept for a bit? He’s your guy. He doesn’t see a difference between them and Earth pets, emotion-wise.

He wouldn’t just feed them and give them a place to live. He’d take care of them. Play with them. Make them feel welcomed no matter where they’re from. He’s such a naturally caring person, he probably wouldn’t think twice.

If another dinosaur falls through the Rift, he’s keeping it: saving it, training it to live and survive just like he did for Myfanwy.

(Secretly, he’d like a dragon. Wouldn’t everyone?)
