pterodactyl jones

Tbh Janto are perfect for each other because they’re both shit at naming things. Who the fuck names a Weevil Janet? Nobody outside of Wales can pronounce that poor pterodactyl’s name.

And of course

Need I mention


Please protect these two morons from their own terrible naming.

Jack and Ianto take Myfanwy on a walk

Okay, so it’s not really a walk

Myfanwy flies away because Jack and Ianto get too carried away flirting to call her back in time. They track her to the countryside the next day, where she’s spent hours stretching her wings and taking in the fresh air.

Loathe as they are to take her back — because it’s clear that she’s having a ton of fun — they allow her a few hours more of freedom, and take the time to take in the sights (and kiss in the back of the SUV like the lovestruck idiots they are).

They do go back eventually, though the sight is a thing to behold: a pteranodon flying over the SUV on the direct way back to Cardiff. But the city has seen stranger, and Ianto has to wipe the story — “Torchwood pet on the loose?” — from only one website.

A portrait of Patton Oswalt as Pterodactyl Jones, the house detective of the most haunted hotel in New York City, The Opal, and his dinosaur-ghost sidekick, Harvey. Their adventures can be heard on the Beyond Belief episode “The Devil and Mr. Jones” on The Thrilling Adventure Hour.

Patton’s likeness still isn’t as close as I’d hoped, but Harvey makes up for it, I think.

Soon to be colored and turned into a cigarette card. Stay tuned.

- it’s 3 am and I’m still in the library studying for finals and I’m losing my grip on reality and I think I just saw a ghost

Frank Doyle was not, in fact, afraid of any ghost.  Spending your teens exorcizing demons and slaying sinister supernaturals will do that.  He could handle specters, spooks, werewolves, wolveweres, goblins, hobgoblins, gobhoblins, and nearly any other baddie you could care to name without breaking a sweat.  Without breaking into his flask, that was another matter, and no one’s business but his. So he was not afraid of any ghost. He was, though, afraid of no ghost. Because ghosts he could handle.  He could deal with ghosts, fight with ghosts, make fun of ghosts, send ghosts to where they should have gone when they died.  But he couldn’t handle no ghost.  If there was no ghost, that meant he was out of options.  That meant he was alone, and afraid, and unable to prevent it, because there wasn’t anything there. Having an empty flask at 3am didn’t help.  Studying alone in the library didn’t help.  Suddenly wishing Catharine was by his side certainly didn’t help.   He attempted to get the last few vapors of ethanol out of his flask.  Nope.  Nothing left.  Just like his life.  So what if he made it to college?  Catherine didn’t.  So what if he could face down anything from beyond the pale?  He was alone.  So what of anything?  He almost didn’t see the point anymore- A squawky cry cut off his maudlin thoughts.  That, unless he missed his guess, was a pterodactyl.  So there was a ghost! Frank slowly stood, grabbing one of the books from the table.  Martini’s Through the Ages, good enough.  He had a flashlight on his keyring, that would do for a candle.  But a bell, he might have to go downstairs to the help desk for a bell, and the dinosaur could be anywhere by the time he got back. Nothing for it.  Quietly, he pushed his chair out of his way, greatful that the carpet muffled the sound.  He tiptoed his way down the stacks, hearing no further noises, until the door to the stairwell opened. Behind the door was another student, wide-eyed and sleep deprived.  He looked left and right, then at Frank.  "I have,“ the student said, "a strange-sounding question, but I want you to answer it seriously.” Frank put his finger to his lips.  "Sure, okay, but keep it down, there’s the ghost of a dinosaur up here.“ The boy’s eyes lit.  "Harvey!”  he shouted.  He ran past Frank, weaving up and down the stacks.  "Harvey!  Harvey?“ Frank winced at each yell.  This kid was going to get himself possessed.  Nothing for it, he’d have to run.  He caught the door as it was closing, and bolted down the stairs.
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.

Fragments : Ianto’s story

cockleshells  asked:

'Close the window', Frank and Sadie.

“Frank?” Sadie called, “"Why don’t we open the window?”

“Well now there’s a question, love, why *don’t* we open the window?”

“I asked you first.”

“Well I asked you second.”

“What if I already know the answer to that question?”

“Supposing you did?” Sadie asked. “Oh, that reminds me darling? How ever did your trip out to the lake with your friend Pterodactyl Jones go?”

“It went swimmingly, though, I must say, it was a bit of a water water everywhere situation, if you catch my drift.”

“Oh Frank!” Sadie cried, “was there not a drop to drink?”

“Not at all!” Frank said. “As you can see, I’ve remedied the situation.”

“Ooh, make my remedy a double.”


“Now, on the subject of the window…” Frank began. 

“Oh, do close the window, darling. Whatever would happen if a bee got in?”

“Way ahead of you, Sadie-love. I had not opened it in the first place.”

“How very prescient of you, darling! Though not psychic! I can’t abide by psychics.”

“To prescience! And to not allowing strangers another point of ingress!”

Thrilling Adventure Hour Fan Art: Pterodactyl Jones and Harvey

This one only got complicated near the end when trying to get Harvey’s design just right. I’m really starting to push for more detail and less reliance on past pieces for the resources. I only reused two components from previous works in this one, see if you can spot them.

Many thanks to bunnicidal for suggesting this one. I’m still looking for more ideas about who I should draw next, so feel free to message me or reply to this post with ideas.
