Post the names of five fictional characters whose names begin with that letter, and your thoughts on each. The characters can be from books, movies, or TV shows. Comment, and I'll give you a letter!

mine under here )
sapphire_child: (as if you have a choice; sherlock)
Comment to this post, and I will list five things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

1) Do you have any pets?
I've got two cats (Monty and Mojo) a blue heeler/bull terrier cross called Milo and a Pink and Grey Galah named Benedict. We're also cat-sitting Monty's brother at the moment whilst my brother and his wife move into their new house :)

2) Did you take dance/gymnastics/skating lessons as a kid?
I did gymnastics for about a year but I wasn't very good at it and at the end of year showcase I was leapfrogging over someone, fell on my butt and had a damn good cry about it. Now I teach ballet to gymnasts at the same school I used to go to. As for dancing, as you may have guessed by the fact that I teach it now...I've been doing it for as long as I can remember! Tap, jazz, ballet, hip hop...everything. I teach now as well, but I started when I was three-and-a-half. I just came home one day and said to my mum, "Mummy I'm going to dancing on Saturday" to which she replied, "Uh huh. And where is it? How much is it? Who are you going with?" etc. I knew all the details of course, and that I was going with my best friend. And so I went to dancing and at the end of year concert I threw up all the way to the stage. After I went onstage for the first time and came back though I was basically bubbling over, gushing, "MUMMY did you see me, I was on the stage!" to my bemused mother. Since then they have yet to get me off them, whether I'm dancing, singing or acting (or all three). I'm currently doing my Honours in Musical Theatre focusing on movement/dance and music.

3) Do you prefer big handbags, or small ones?
Depends on my mood. I do tend to carry a lot of stuff about during the day so my handbag has to be fairly reasonably sized but at night I quite often take a smaller bag with me if I go out somewhere.

4) What was your favorite cartoon as a kid?
Oh gosh, so many! I watched the Simpsons almost religiously but I think my favourite would have to be Babar, no question. I've been obsessed with elephants since I was tiny and one day when we had to go to the shops after school I missed Babar. Oh my gosh, I cried so much because I'd missed it! My mum and brother were completely bemused :P

5) If you had to watch one episode of Doctor Who 5 times in a row, which one would you pick?
Ooh tough call...would probably depend on my mood but I'd likely go with Doomsday or The Idiots Lantern. Don't know why, I just really love those eps and my brain immediately went to them.

Holy bloody hell I forgot how many Lost fanfictions I actually wrote...I really must go back and re-read them at some point and cringe over their awfulness. I really appear to love "Better Days" by the Goo Goo Dolls as I have used it in two different fandoms. Also, I'm amazed at how many songs by The Fray I used for my Lost fics in rapid succession...weird. I must have been listening to them a lot :P

Any other thoughts from anyone else out there?

How many icons do you have total?

How many can you have?

If you could buy space for more, would you?
I already got a paid account after trialling it because I couldn’t deal with the thought of going back to 15 :P

Do your icons make a statement about you?
I suppose they do :P do they flist?

What fandom do you have the most icons out of?
Doctor Who

The second most?

What ship do you have the most icons out of?
Doctor/Rose (in all its variant forms)

Break down your icons for us.
I like having icons that correlate to my various responses to people’s posts so basically I have a bunch of happy icons and then various sad ones to show my emotional response.

How do you categorize your icons?
Same as above?

Are your icons mostly made by other users?

Animated icons are...
Hilariously awesome.

I tag: anyone who hasn’t already done it!
sapphire_child: (have this heart to break; dw; ten/rose)
Pick a paragraph from anything I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.
sapphire_child: (manly giggle; rl; david tennant)
Pick a character and I will give and explain the top five ideas/concepts/etc I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to accurately depicting them. Any and all characters are welcome (including ones I haven't written but the answers will probably be less than satisfactory :P)

What I've been journaling about )

My Interests Collage! )

I am so amused that I got two of Billie Piper being sexy on blue satin plus what I'm pretty sure is David Tennant onstage, naked wearing one of those police helmets is. Also lol in the second one how there is like...some sort of gay manip. Do I have slash in my interests? I don't recall. Also, omg John Marsden! The Dresden Dolls! The Whitlams! Holy crap this is awesome.

ETA: Fat meerkats? wtf? Nina Sosanya yay! Random anime? Alchemical symbol? Maybe? Holy crap there is a lot of nudity in this - I also have Liv Tyler with one of her titty's out! And man abs! Carole King! Damien Rice! DOMLIJAH FOR CHRISSAKES. And is that...Emma Watson? Flashing her knickers? WHAT.


Best. Meme. EVER.
sapphire_child: (hit the road jack; dw; ten/rose)
Jared and Emilie are now out of the final running which means that you now have a difficult task ahead of you. To look at picspams of your top two boys and girls and then decide who is the most attractive!

I don't envy you this choice. Really. General adorkableness and gorgeousness from the boys and girls respectively underneath the cut. )
sapphire_child: (your hand in mine; dw; nine/rose)

And this is where the going really gets tough. I'll admit you surprised me last round by voting off Evie and Misha (he seems to be taking it remarkably well) but now we get into the really curly final three rounds.

Your top three lovely ladies and beautiful boys under here. )
sapphire_child: (Default)
You guys totally cracked me up with the last round of voting. I went to close the polls and discovered that you had voted out Ian Somerhalder and Maggie Grace. Ian Somerhalder and Maggie Grace you guys.

You do realise that you totally ditched Boone and Shannon in the same week? XD ouch man. No love for the incestuous brother/sister duo. Well never mind, there's still four left in each gender so happy voting!

Warning: there may be knicker flashing and adorable eye crinkling smiles under the cut. Proceed with extreme caution. )

Now come on Who fans, I'm expecting to see you all rally behind David since he's up against some stiff competition with, you know, half the frigging cast of Supernatural. Poor baby :(

Girls I don't mind who wins. Well, I'd prefer it to be Emilie or Billie but, you know, that's my opinion ;) you guys vote whoever you like off and I'll continue making pretty montages of pretty people :D
sapphire_child: (Default)
Well it was very nearly Orlando but poor Dom got voted off this time instead! Omg I can't believe it you guys - the man wears eyeliner AND nailpolish! We also lost Freema Agyeman *moment of silence* BUT there are still six gorgeous boys and six beautiful girls to choose from! So without further ado...

Round Five Under Here! )
sapphire_child: (Default)
So Paul McDermott and Sophia Myles have been voted out.
They're obviously both a bit disappointed by this :(


Paul is very excited to let you know that Jensen Ackles...
is still in the running!

Well, Jensen and several other gorgeous boys. Speaking of which - round three! I've decided to focus in on something that I tend to notice a lot about people...their eyes!

round three! dingdingding! )

And having observed my choices in people here I have realised that I particularly like people with bright blue eyes and dark hair, and girls with golden/brown eyes and/or blonde hair. I'm also infinitely amused that the Supernatural guys are now all on the SAME LINE. Hilarity.
