So a friend of mine [ profile] elliotsmelliot, did this meme ages ago and I loved it and figured I’d have a crack at it. Like, two years later, I’m finally posting it up.

Make a list of all the characters in your icons. If you have more than one icon of a single character, they only go on the list once. Alphabetize the list. Take the first two people on the list; that's your first pairing. Second two people; second pairing, etc. Graphic! Or fanfic, whatever you like. Go nuts!

Graphiccy/fanficcy goodness under here. )

So about four years ago I wrote and posted one of my last Lost fanfictions - a little AU Charlie/Claire vignette called We Could Have Had The World. It had the two of them living in a house together in Othersville, with Charlie trying to get over the aftermath of The Looking Glass. The fic included a scene of him playing Clair de lune on the piano and having a mini flashback to playing it for Claire on his guitar when she was pregnant.

Well guess what I found on youtube?

^_^ ah memories...

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: (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: (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: (that's very me; dw; ten2/rose)
Just Milk Nine/Rose, PG-13
It tends to creep up on him you see, now that he doesn’t sleep much anymore. Not that he was ever big on the activity in the first place, but now when he lets himself...well he tends to wake up like this. Screaming that is. Written for the TTU ficathon and also in honour of [ profile] womenlovefest which is being fabulously run by my good friend [ profile] akzseinga

She wasn’t doing a thing that I could see, except standing there, leaning on the balcony railing, holding the universe together. )
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: (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: (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.
sapphire_child: (three doctors; dw; nine+ten+eleven)
A touch that heals Nine/Rose, PG
After a wall collapses onto Nine he is characteristically grumpy and a little bit short with Rose. She of course, forgives him for everything once she sees the bruises and fluff ensues.

She was never meant to see him like this. )
sapphire_child: (if it makes you happy; rl; bills+dave)
Shadow in Plain Sight the Master and implied Ten/Rose, PG-13
Oh but it’s simply marvellous how the Doctor loses her. Rose Tyler is on the list of the dead and he makes certain to attend each and every one of the memorial services. It’s good for his image – dear Harold Saxon who is rising in the polls every day, so sympathetic to those who have lost loved ones in the wake of this terrible, AWFUL tragedy... 3,043
sapphire_child: (solemnly swear; dw; 10squared)
Unfortunately I don't think the epilogue is going to happen. Maybe ever. I know I said there was going to be one and all but you know, between my university load and my lack of inspiration for it it's just not going to happen. Thanks to everyone who has commented and enjoyed it. Hopefully you'll be able to fill in your own blanks as to how the story might end :)

ETA: also a very happy birthday to the Weasley twins, Fred and George. What better day for them to be born on eh?

ETA2: Oh god I am so mean. Somebody slap me, I'm turning into my mother...
sapphire_child: (three doctors; dw; nine+ten+eleven)
We bend and creak but never break Rose/TenII, NC-17
Something angsty with smut thrown in somewhere. Focusing on the new found mortality of TenII. He isn’t here, not really. Physically he’s taking up the bed with his long legs and miles of plastic tubing, but Rose just can’t align this fragile looking creature with her Doctor. 4,919 words.
A/N: [ profile] rubberbisquit I really tried to just do angst. I did. But for some reason when you tell my muse to do angst she does fluff instead :P so there’s a bit of both.

To feed a starving man on breadcrumbs, Ten/Rose/Bad Wolf, PG
One finger caresses a sweet line of warmth down his cheek, like a tear of molten gold and he tries desperately hard not to crack in two. Her lips trace the slipstream and come to rest on his chin, trembling as it is. She kisses him there, so softly, and draws back to whisper her love to him like the universes greatest secret. 1244 words

Under the Influence Nine/Rose, Ten/Rose, PG-13
“You don’t scare me!” she says and her voice might be small and she might tremble as she says it but she isn’t afraid. Not really. “The Doctor’d never let anything hurt me. An’ I don’t care what you say, he’s still in there and I’ll bet he’s fightin’ you with everything he’s got!” 1,588 words

Where you tend a rose, a thistle cannot grow Nine/Rose, PG
The Doctor sat vigilant at her bedside and read Lewis Carroll until her feverish brain allowed her to rest, but soon enough she was shaking her head at Kipling’s whimsy and being enchanted by the kindness of Sara Crewe and the transformation of Mary Lennox and by the time she had progressed from broth to solids they’d finished off the bookshelf and he was tramping the ten miles or so back to the TARDIS every other day to find new stories for her. 620 words
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.

To the fans of AoBH,

I am truly, truly sorry for not getting this chapter out sooner but this story has turned out to be even LONGER than I thought it would be and I've been agonising over the end of it for several months now (damn my OCD!) because so many people have invested so much time in this fic (a fact that continues to humble and amaze me) and I don't now want to rush the end and do a half arsed job because you all deserve so much more! (So much more...!)

So thank you for your amazing and ongoing patience (and the gentle, ongoing digs at me on totally unrelated journal posts to write more of this XD). You guys are all so incredible and I've been enjoying all of your comments so very much. This whole fic has been a massive labour of love and I'm going to be very sad when it's all over and posted :( but in the meantime, have a new chapter (FINALLY) of The Art of Being Human.

xx sapph

The Art of Being Human – Chapter 10/11 PG-13, Ten/Rose, John Smith/Rose
AU. With John Smith gone and the Family defeated, Rose returns to life on the TARDIS with the Doctor. But things aren’t like they were before and it seems like the Doctor might not be able to help Rose heal after the loss of John...

Prologue, Chapter One, Chapter Two, Chapter Three, Chapter Four, Chapter Five, Chapter Six, Chapter Seven, Chapter Eight, Chapter Nine, Chapter Ten, Chapter Eleven, Epilogue

Previously, in the Art of Being Human... )

Chapter Ten )

So I don't know how many of you are aware of the flooding that's been happening over in the north-east of Australia but pretty much half of Queensland is currently underwater.

My best friend who lives in Brisbane is currently one suburb away from being evacuated but is holed up with all of her pets because she can't leave them and she can't take them with her to a rescue centre. I also just found out that the guys in Queensland who we call up for technical support at work (and various other stuff) have been evacuated from the Brisbane CBD which means my job has just been made like, ten times harder.

But it's nowhere near as hard as what these poor sods are going through in Queensland which is why I'm offering myself up as a writer for the floor relief fic fundraiser over at [personal profile] waltzmatildah's journal.

So please, please guys - go and bid, or offer yourself as a writer if you write fic. This whole thing is such a huge blow - they've barely recovered from the last bad floods they had and it's even closer to my heart being as my best mate is currently stuck right in the middle of it, as is her mum.
