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?
sapphire_child: (as if you have a choice; sherlock)

Is it sad to have this many feels about a fanvid? Because all I can think about, watching this damn video is "An image of an angel becomes an angel itself". YES WELL DONE SHERLOCK FOR HAVING TWENTY ODD DAMN PHOTOGRAPHS OF THEM ON YOUR WALL YOU STUPID TIT.

*gnaws on fingernails*
sapphire_child: (three doctors; dw; nine+ten+eleven)

David Tennant (bless him) is off his socks from one beer. Your argument is invalid.

Can this be the fifty years celebration episode?

And thus began my obsession with this song...

Can you tell I miss Supes? Coming up, Superwho, Superwholock and Sherlock.
sapphire_child: (my hands are small I know; dw; ten/rose)
Better Days PG-13, Ten/Rose
The much anticipated follow up to where The Art of Being Human left off. Warning: this story contains awkward conversations, a veritable Holiday spree, Banana Daiquiris, a bit of kissing, an unexpected present and a Chinese Dragon Puppet. Make of that what you will and Happy Chinese New Year!

And I don’t need boxes wrapped in string, and desire and love and empty things / just a chance that maybe we’ll find better days )
sapphire_child: (can't let you go; dw; eleven/rose)
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know Eleven/Rose, Amy PG-13
He is lonely despite himself, painting pictures of a girl that he sees only in his dreams. But as dreams turn to nightmare and love to loss the fragile seams of his existence begin to unravel, leaving his companion to pick up the pieces. But who will hold her together? AU set during season five.

Written for the [community profile] doctor_rose_fix Holiday Fix A Thon for this prompt

It’s the 1970’s and he develops a taste for paisley and a dark corduroy coat which is fraying at the cuffs. She tries out bell bottoms and gets a casual job in a little shop and makes sure to come past to make him tea and remind him that he needs to eat every once in a while. )
sapphire_child: (Default)
Can You See Me Now? Ten/Rose, PG
Travelling with the Doctor is mad, wonderful...and most definitely not a fairytale. Following the shattering loss of Mickey, Rose immerses herself in Disney movies and the Doctor tries desperately to shake her out of funk by taking her to Hal Fador. Happiness, after all, can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light... 2,795 words

( They managed to stay at the Powell Estate for almost a week before the Doctor started going a touch mad. )
sapphire_child: (a kind of gigantic dork; dw; nine/rose)
First there was the cast and crew version...

And now the fan have made their own. FANTASTIC.

I think my favourite bit is all the tributes to Sue from Catering XD
sapphire_child: (your hand in mine; dw; nine/rose)
He was a punk, she did ballet Nine/Rose AU, PG
There is something so much more to it than that though. It’s in the way his eyes soften when she apologises for wasting trips to go and see another ballet when they’ve already seen a million of them. It’s in the way he watches her dance, how willing he is to sneak her into lessons with exclusive ballet companies using the psychic paper...
Written for this prompt at the TTU fic-a-thon.

She doesn’t expect him to tackle her as she walks home and wrestle her dancing bag off her though. Or to turn up at her house a few days later to steal her new Pointe shoes because apparently they’ve been manufactured by an alien company intent on taking over the world. )
sapphire_child: (no more despair; dw; rose)
Season Five of Doctor Who in 2 minutes. Can-Can style!

The perfect blending of book quotes and movie footage/music - Harry and Hermione in the Godric's Hollow graveyard. I just...gahfjkgadf. This is so beautiful

And probably the most amazing Harry Potter tribute video ever made. Amazing.
sapphire_child: (can't you...? ; dw; ten/rose)

By any other name Dave Tiler/Rose Tyler, PG13
Rose is on a Torchwood mission when she accidentally stumbles across professional photographer and family man Dave Tiler. An almost perfect doppelganger for her Doctor, Rose is irresistibly drawn to him. But Dave’s got his own life and loves. When his partner dies Rose makes a string of excuses to come back to Glasgow but can’t help but wonder whether she’s ultimately trying to assuage his grief or her own.

It’s one of those jobs that most agents hate – taking readings, talking to civilians...but Rose enjoys these sorts of jaunts. She likes to pretend that she’s investigating something under her own steam and later she’ll be able to meet up with the Doctor so they can put their intel together and fix things up like they always do... )
sapphire_child: (no more despair; dw; rose)

I've been waiting for a good vid to this song to come out since they used this song on Confidential and I must say, this is pretty much perfect except for the occasional shonky clip quality.

Oh Doctor...
sapphire_child: (just dance; dw; ten/rose)
literal and metaphorical Nine/Rose, Ten/Rose, PG
Two times the swimming pool was in the library before Eleven’s regeneration. One literal, the other mostly metaphorical. Written for this prompt at the [community profile] doctor_rose_fix summer ficathon.

Read more... )
sapphire_child: (a kind of gigantic dork; dw; nine/rose)

So I just put up a boatload of prompts for this so somebody had better get over there and check out this awesomesauce fic-a-thon! SO looking forward to it, I need to get my writing mojo back into gear.

Teeeeeeeeennn! ;________________;

And now for some fluffy, awesomeness for the Supernatural/Who fans on my flist. Somebody on tumblr thought that a splicing of the two fandoms would be cool so they created a new fandom called SUPERWHO. And this is a vid pertaining to it.

sapphire_child: (Default)
And honestly this not the most perfect D/R vid ever? Apart from the occasional shonky clip quality? Just...the song is beyond perfect, the clip choice is wonderful - the bit where they intersperse Ten's "Just tell her..." speech with their mini fight in School Reunion...fhadjlkfgksd. And the way it all ties back into the idea of "Does is need saying?"

WAGHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Ship why must you do these things to me when I'm meant to be studying?!

Okay, no more procrastination. Essay half done, going to finish it now!
