Title: Ruby and the Good Time Author: kaffyr Fandom: Sapphire and Steel Characters: Sapphire, Steel, Silver, Lead, Ruby Rating: PG-13 Words: 2,898 Edited by: All mistakes are my own, as this was unedited. Summary: Ruby was used to fighting Time Gone Wrong. She was quite unprepared for what she met when she ran into Time Gone Right. A rumination on joy and Elements. Author's Note: This was written, with a great deal of affection, for clocketpatch, during the 2014 fandom_stockingfun. She had evinced an interest in whether Elements could be drugged. I set off to write something extremely fluffy and funny and it turned into something different, but I would like to think it is ultimately a positive story. All mistakes, from spelling, to pacing, to potential OOC commentary are my own, as this did not benefit from editing. My apologies in advance. Disclaimer: None of the characters in this story are mine. They are the sole property of Peter J. Hammond, ATV and their various creators. I intend no infringement and take no coin. ______________________
Title: The Bright Side of Time Fandom: Doctor Who, Sapphire and Steel Characters: Clara Oswald, Silver, Sapphire, the Twelfth Doctor Rating: PG Words: 2,022 Summary: That Clara would investigate the change in the sound of the TARDIS was a foregone conclusion. That she’d find a strange man in a light grey suit kneeling in the hall, one ear pressed hard against the TARDIS' wall, wasn’t. Author's Notes: This is dedicated, with a great deal of affection, to lost_spook for the 2014 fandom_stocking fun. She it was who first introduced me to Sapphire and Steel. I like to think that members of my favorite elemental OT3, and most certainly Silver, would appreciate a dimensionally transcendent blue box, if only because She shares the same color scheme as Sapphire. I hope I treat all of the characters here with the respect they are due. This is my first time writing Clara and, for as brief a time as he appears, the Twelfth Doctor; any mischaraterizations are solely my responsibility, since this tale was not edited. Disclaimer: As always, no characters are mine. They are, rather, the sole property of their various original creators. I take no coin, but am grateful to be able to work with them.

It's about time, and inhuman personages of great but fluctuating powers, battling against incomprehensible dangers that are, again, largely time-connected, and about the results on humans caught in the wash of the battles, even when they are sometimes the cause of the battles.
Happy Birthday, lost_spook ! I trust you're having a wonderful birthday. Thank you for introducing me to Sapphire and Steel, and for humongous picspams of David Collings, and for amazing television series that should be real. Thank you most of all for your puckish sense of humor, your patience, your kindness, and the pleasure of knowing you. (And since I don't have a present for you, let me present this proof that loads of people share the S&S love.)
Hello and belated birthday wishes, too, to ghanimasun . May the coming year be magnificent for you.
So, too, should the coming year be for jrsz - Happy Birthday!
Title: Some Trouble With Silverware Fandom: Sapphire and Steel Characters: Sapphire, Steel, Silver Rating: PG Words: 1,147 Edited by: Unedited. All mistakes are my own, and sorry I am for them. Summary: Cutlery shouldn't always be cutlery; now it's up to Silver to make sure it's something else. Author's Notes: Written with affection for lost_spook , during the 2013 fandom_stocking fun. She it was who introduced me to Sapphire and Steel, and I thank her very much. (Really - In 2011, I didn't know S&S. In 2012 I wrote one. Last year I doubled that to two, this and "Hearth and Soul". Goodness knows, if the rule stands, I shall write four this year, and eight the next. It really is a seductive little fandom ... but I digress.) Anyhow I hope she enjoys this adventure with a favorite threesome.

Story: Green, Red and Gold, and Blue Follows Author:kaffyr Characters: Sapphire, Steel Fandom: Sapphire and Steel Rated: PG Wordcount: 1,015 Summary: It was a terrible gift to have to give, and she was honoring it. Author's Notes: This was a gift for the lovely lost_spook for this year'sfandom_stocking effort. She drew me into Sapphire and Steel, which was really quite dreadful of her to do, but it's rewarded me with a great many good pieces of fiction, many of them hers. (Go! Read! Get drawn in as I was! And find the show on YouTube if you haven't yet seen it ... there's a great deal that might commend it to Who fen) This was unedited, although my beloved buckaroobob did give it a read through.
After being completely incapable of writing, and certain that I'd post a gigantic goose-egg for fandom_stocking, I eventually managed to write seven pieces, for about 7,600 words' worth. I write so slowly these days, and it seems to be so very much harder for me than it used to be,(holy crap, I'm jealous of folks who can bang it out, and do magnificent jobs doing so) but eventually that weird and unexplainable thing that happens somewhere in my brain to allow me to write actually happened. I am reasonably happy with the results. At least one was in a new fandom for me, and I'm hoping the results meet with favor.
I also went to a movie tonight, and I'm glad I did. I watched The Hobbit, and I deem it Very, Very Good. Good enough that it makes me want to reread The Silmarillion and not The Hobbit. Jackson did what I hoped he would, and made the dwarves of Middle Earth believable and filled with honor. It's a lesson he hadn't quite learned with Rhys-Davies and Gimli, son of Gloin. In fact, I think he did what I'd hoped for in general. I'm looking forward to the second movie. Is it out yet?
(I'd probably have more to say, but I'm dead beat, and am going to bed. Tomorrow's going to be a bear, I just know it.)
