Notes: Others have done “Malcolm used to be Jack” before and while reading their works I got inspired to try my hand at it

Chapter 5

Sadly, with him being occupied with all these events, he had totally lost contact with Tommy. They weren’t having a father/son relationship anymore; they didn’t actually have any relationship. Malcolm paid for all his expensive schools but there always seemed to be a wall between them. They were not able to exchange more than a few words before starting to yell at each other.

Malcolm was heartbroken that Tommy did not even come to him after Oliver and his father had died on their ship tour. Malcolm had had his reasons for wanting Robert dead and setting the bomb, but he had not planned to kill Oliver as well. He and Tommy always had been best friends, growing up together, and he felt like a son to Malcolm as well.

He had longed to take Tommy into his arms, in a close hug, and tell him it was okay to cry and maybe even shed a tear or two himself, but Tommy had gone to Laurel instead for help. Another chance that could have brought father and son closer together again had gone by.

Action figure theatre by my friend Paya

Tody I want to introduce some more of my friend Paya's work. I already had a first installment of this here: And also when our Stargate figures travelled to Vancouver, while we did the pictures together, she did all the hard work to put it into a story, which I linked to here:

Today I show you the first own story she made, after finding a model BMW bike, the same that Richard Dean Anderson drives. Only problem was, little Jack had yet to assemble it. So this story came out of it and I love it very much. Many of the small details you see in the background she has made herself.

She also takes wonderful pictures in the nature, of her Jack skiing or riding the bike. I will show them another time. Those pictures are really worth clicking, you won't be disappointed!

Exterminating in the Rain... doo-bah-doo-doo...

... just bought another Who-shirt.

This was my first: Stargate & TARDIS

And then this: Dalek: Procrastinate!

There were also some from Redbubble, this: Doctors Eleven

and this: DocTorchWhood

and one where the link doesn't work anymore, but it resembles this: Gallifrey

As you can see, I like graphic stuff with simple lines. So it was only logical that I bought this. It brings together my love for the Daleks and my love for a certain musical - plus it is just a funny sight: Exterminating in the Rain

This any many more Doctor Who shirts can be bought for another 5 days here:
