The OTP Meme - Choose your current One True Pairing and list 3-5 five reasons that made you fall in love with them. Your answer can be in the form of writing, fan-art, graphics, or any kind of media (e.g. a clip of a scene with the pairing, or maybe a text excerpt). Have fun and spread the love!

Charlie/Claire from Lost had huge amounts of potential back in season one when we were first introduced to the pairing. Over time the writers have pushed them to the side in favour of the triangle/quadrangle of doom and all their lovely potential of course went down the toilet with their seperation and (more recently) Charlie's death. But I always have and always will love this pairing.

Now I could wax on lyrically but instead I'm going to give you my two pieces of media that remind me the most of my OTP. Funnily enough, they're both from season one...

Video: The Water Scene from White Rabbit
Reason: This scene still makes me squee - even after so long. The first hints towards what this ship could have become. *sigh*

Fanfiction: Learning You by [livejournal.com profile] literarylemming a.k.a. Mnemosyne.
Summary: Episode tag to "Outlaws." Charlie and Claire commune immediately after the end of the episode.
Reason: her fics were some of the very first Lost ones I ever read and they're all just so fucking incredible. Her fics were what inspired me to start writing my own C/C. This was my favourite of hers and it still remains my favourite Lost fanfiction of all time. Her use of language is just...guh perfect.

Meme snagged from [personal profile] mistojen

1. Open your music collection and set the songs to shuffle/random.
2. Take the first 30 and write one line from each.
3. As people guess the songs, strike them.

Songs marked with a * had the title in the first line/verse so I’ve put down the next line/chorus instead

Somebody shake me cause I, I must be sleeping... )

My Aunt (my mum's sister) got re-married on Saturday night at the grand old age of 52. She looked so beautiful, I almost cried. When I get five, I'll post myphotos of it but for now, whilst I'm on the subject of photos...

Ask me to take a picture of any aspect of my life that you're interested in/curious about - it can be anything from the house I live in to my favourite shoes. Leave your choice here as a comment, and I will reciprocate by taking the pictures and posting them as an LJ entry. That way you get to know a little bit about my life!

Anybody under the age of 13 should not read this, and if you do, you should not repost this. Just because you were born in '97 doesn't mean you're a 90's kid! It's not like you could remember the original Simpsons. I am sorry but three conscious years of the 90's just wont cut it.

You're a 90's kid if... )

Post this if you remember those days!

ETA: Comment and I'll comment back with two songs that remind me of you! Then post this on your journal and do it for your own f-lists too!

I just realised that I don't have a spiffy mood theme when I could so HELP. Anyone know any good moodthemes? Preferably somehow related to Dom/Emilie/Charlie/Claire/Lost *massive puppy dog eyes*

One of my clients at work cancelled on me. I hate training her because she cancels ALL the time.


Download "Everything" by Lifehouse. It's like, the best song in existence. Srsly, I nearly fell off my chair the first time I listened to it I loved it that much.

I love my icon to pieces.

That is all.

1. Are you named after anyone? If so, explain.
My two middle names are the names of my respective Grandmothers. (I'm an Ellin Zoe Joan btw)

2. Do you have your children's names picked out already? If so, is there any significance?
For a while I thought of having a girl and calling her James actually =P go the Harry Potter-ness. I actually have no idea - there's a lot of names I like and I have a huge book of baby names to help me with ideas for my characters so...i dunno. I could still call a girl James =P that'd be funky.

3. If you were born a member of the opposite sex what would your name have been?
Haha, I have no idea. I know my dad was convinced that I was a boy though and my mum was all "wtfno."

4. If you could re-name yourself what name would you pick and why?
I like my name. *nodnod*

5. Are there any mispronunciations/typos that people do w/ your name constantly?
People mispell my name as "Ellen" instead of "Ellin" and some people (especially those with strong Aussie accents - namely GUYS) mispronounce it so it sounds like "Allan". WTF?! I am NOT a guy!

And...that is all. Fwee.
sapphire_child: (heart!dom)
Explain your user name and then, tag five people to do the same.

Well…mines very simple actually. Sapphire is my birthstone and then I needed another word to go with it so I considered “babe” at first, decided that sapphire_babe sounded far too preppy (plus my old email was sapphire_babe_4eva) and so I put “child” instead and…myes. It’s been my username/email for about 3-4 years now.

I tag…everyone who hasn’t done this! Simply because I can’t be arsed actually putting down anyone’s usernames =P

Oh and also, Lost? Charlie/Claire? Serious, serious squeeage right here my friends.
