I've been itching to post a big Frospam for ages but RL is conspiring against me. So for the moment I'm just quickly popping in with two recs - but before that, two small things I want to mention. (1) My LJ layout has completely changed without my telling it to. Anyone know why this would be? (2) I don't think I have ever seen Elijah wearing a watch. In RL I mean - though I can't think of him wearing one in a film either. Do young people not wear watches so much these days?

On to the recs - I have just read the most stunning ficlet by ladysunrope. This is brilliant, I found it extremely moving - and the POV is New Zealand - yes, Aotearoa - Land of the Long White Cloud:

And perianella has some really lovely screencaps from the EII dvd here:

Most young people today have cell phones and they tell they time, so the look at them if they need to know.

I thought that might be the reason - I do have a mobile (cell) phone myself but I've worn a watch for so long that it feels really strange to be without one:)

I never wear a watch (I don't have a cell phone either) but I'd never noticed that Elijah never wore one...I think you're right though, I can't remember seeing him wear one...

If you can believe it, someone actually started a thread at A & F about Elijah wearing a watch.

I have several photos of him wearing a watch...among the 3000+ in my Photobucket...but I never got around to posting them on that thread.

I'd feel lost without my watch,although I probably check the time far more often than I really need to - I think its just become a habit:)

I wear a watch only when I got out somewhere. We have clocks in every room in the house, I think. Besides, since I practically live on the computer, I rarely need to know what time it is....heh, heh. If I do, all I have to do is look at the lower right corner of the screen.

That's true about Elijah not wearing a watch! Never noticed that!

Thank you SO MUCH for the rec of LSR's fic - it's beautiful beyond words, and I'd have missed it otherwise because I'm not a member of that community!

Well, if you look at Yeux's reply above you'll see she mentions that they've actually discussed this at A&F - and some people have found pics of him wearing one!!

it's beautiful beyond words
Isn't it just? Absolutely amazing:)
