This journal is semi-friends only which basically means that all of my fanfiction posts are public as well as some fandom related posts.

If you've come searching for my Lost fanfiction I would suggest making your way over to the userinfo at [ profile] faithandtrust for my master fic list.

Similarly if you're looking for any of my graphics/manips/icons then you'll be wanting [ profile] sapphicons.

If you've stumbled across me via other means and would like to get to know me better then feel free to drop me a line right here! I'll usually add you if we've got similar interests :)

Cheers, Ellin/sapph

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. )
sapphire_child: (you make me smile; nine/rose)
I don't recall the last time I sat down to post something on here. My journal says it's at least two years. In that time I've been all over tumblr, had a massive break up, found new love, finished a four year uni degree, had a year off and am about to start on my PhD.

I have also discovered that photobucket have fucked up all of my picture links - for EVERYTHING. So the plan is, slowly slowly, over the next year, to reupload all my icons, re-edit all my old posts and get this place (and all associated journals for fanfiction and icons) looking smashing again.

So. Who is still out there in the LJ verse?
sapphire_child: (john is unimpress; sherlock)
...why isn't there a Sherlock fanvideo to this song yet?

sapphire_child: (you took the fall for us; sherlock)
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...

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: (explosion of squee; text)

And now by way of a clever segue...

And now for some soul crushing angst... :P

sapphire_child: (intense eyefucking; sherlock)

I have a horrible feeling I'll be listening to them on repeat until I go to bed :P which is probably not going to be for a while which is bad because I need to get up in the morning to go and teach 2-4 year olds how to dance.

ETA: I just got up to the swelly violiny bit in "One More Miracle" where the camera sweeps around to show Sherlock watching John...fdhalkfjahdlfks dead.
sapphire_child: (as if you have a choice; sherlock)

Because you can't be a fandom without at least ONE fanvideo to this song.


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?
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: (look; sherlock; jw/sh)

And now to counterbalance all the angst...some good old fashioned lulzy, slashy goodness.

And finally...
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: (ilu man; spn; dean+sam)

The best - BEST - part of this video is the recurrance of Peggy March's "I Will Follow Him". Just...fabulous.
