Welcome!

Hi there! This LJ is pretty much my archive for fics that I have written in English, but there's some everyday stuff about me, too. The fics are based either on J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter books or BBC's tv-show Sherlock. I don't own the characters etc., I just write for fun without getting any money out of it, obviously. And I love reviews, comments and feedback. If you read it and you like it, please let me know, and if you didn't like it and can tell me why, please, again, let me know.

A Genuine Mistake (BBC!Sherlock, Sherlock/John, PG-13)

Name: A Genuine Mistake
Author: toyhto
Written: 6-1-2016
Beta: maediocremuon, thank you so much!
Fandom: BBC!Sherlock
Pairing: John Watson / Sherlock Holmes
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences / PG-13
Genre: romance, drama, one-shot
Words: ~ 4500
Summary: What the hell was wrong with him, how could he fix it, and how on earth would he prevent Sherlock from noticing that he was going mad?


A/N: I have a new fandom, whaaaaaat! I finally began watching Sherlock after having been told time after time that it's really good, and then I couldn't stop, and when I had watched all the shows I figured out that well, since they haven't ended up together in the show (yet), let's try fanfiction, and having read a few fics I, of course, had to write some of my own. And it's so fun to be writing fanfiction again. Last five years I've mainly written songs and a few 'novels' for NaNoWriMo, and oh I didn't know I was missing it.


But well, enough of that. This is the first fic about this fandom that I wrote, and also by now the only one in English that I've managed to publish. Here you go! (You can also read it in Ao3 if you wish, just click here.)

Who am I?

Since it's year 2015 (what!) and it's been six years since I started writing this LJ and also pretty much forgot about it after a few months, and since lately I've been writing fics again (like, two, but still... what!) it's a good time to introduce myself to a possible human being that might end up visiting my LJ.

I'm a twenty four year old girl, even though I'm not sure if still ought to present myself as a 'girl', from Finland. I'm currently living in Eastern Finland, in small city called Joensuu ('The Mouth of the River, pretty much) where I study music in the university of applied sciences and geography and environmental politics in the university. The music is my old thing, geography is my new and I'm stressing about my two schools and two studies and trying to figure out what I want to do when I grow up. Also, I feel pretty lucky because there are so many interesting things in the world and because I luckily have the possibility to study these things that I find so interesting, thanks to Finnish system of supporting students with student grant.

I love hanging around with my boyfriend, watching good shows on the TV, making my own music when I feel like it, nature, friends, a good night with just girls (so rare for me nowadays!), reading a great book and so many more things. My latest love is skiing... I hadn't been doing that in ten years but really, it's awesome, good exercise with lots of fresh air! If you got the snow, please try it!

So, at the moment I'm really happy, even though that's a pretty weird thing to admit since I'm also somehow a melancholic person.

Also, I've been writing fanfiction since I was 15, and all the time it has been pretty much Harry Potter fanfiction. After a few years I just fell in love with Regulus Black and Remus/Sirius. I thought that my ficcing days were gone but well, this Christmas I read a few of my own old fics, then wrote one, then read a few fics that others have written, then finished a few that I had left unfinished... And here I am. We will see. I don't expect to use all my free time with fics anymore, because, well, I don't have that much of it at the moment because of all the studying, and the boyfriend. But it's so exciting to be writing at least something again!

As you already guessed, my first language is Finnish and I so am not a native English speaker. I write (also) in English knowing that there are many mistakes, but well, I believe that bunch of grammar mistakes or weird choice of words don't necessarily ruin the whole story. Or at least I hope so. And even if it does, writing in English is exciting and quite different from writing in Finnish, and I'm enjoying it.

So, here I am! Feel free to comment, review and give me feedback, or just say hello!

Accidents (Remus/Sirius, PG-13, one-shot)

Name: Accidents

Genre: romance, drama, slash, one-shot
Words: ~ 4000
Summary: They kiss behind the green houses, by accident, of course. And then in the dormitory, again by accident. It almost seems like something weird is going on.


A/N: Ah, Sirius and Remus! I just can't get over them! If you read it, please let me know what you thought!

A 'Hello' After a Long Time

Now surprisingly it's been like almost five years since I've written anything here. The main reason why this blog has been abandoned is maybe that I haven't been writing any fics (besides a few short ones two or three years ago, but a few really doesn't count). And the main reason why I'm writing this now is because I've lost touch in writing in English and after spending one and a half weeks at a jazz camp in Italy I'm more interested in learning languages and traveling and that kind of stuff than I've been in years.

And what has happened in five (or almost five years)? After high school, I spent a year in the university studying Finnish, Literature and Philosophy. Sadly, I couldn't figure out if I wanted to be a Finnish teacher that I would have had to become, and also I really wanted to play the drums. Therefore I applied to conservatories next spring and managed to get into one, and for that I had to move to another city, a smallish town in Eastern Finland that I didn't know at all beforehand. After three years of hard and sometimes really frustrating work I graduated from the conservatory and managed to get into university of applied sciences to continue my studies with music. And even though I have been mainly happy with my decision to start studying music whole time, I've missed studying in the university and now I'm also kind of studying in the university of Eastern Finland as a hobby. My major is supposed to be musicology, but I'm struggling a bit with the thought that maybe I really want just to play and teach music and not be a researcher, and there might be more interesting and less music-related subjects that I could study in the university.

Also, in five years I've been really happy and really sad and then really happy again. I've made some friends, though not as many as I might have hoped to, I've lived in three cities of wich I've really liked two and all in all I'm in quite a happy place with my life right now. So it's a good place to get back to your old blog and start going on again.

(no subject)

When should one know what do they want to study? I've been in a university for two months now, and I keep changing my mind all the time. My major is Finnish and I'm also studying Literature. If I don't change my subjects, I'm going to end up as a qualified Finnish teacher. Okay, I like Finnish and I like studying it, and I also kind of like the idea of teaching it (preferably to students who are at least a bit interested in it!) but I don't really know if that's what I want to do with my life. Or, to be precise, I don't know if that's what I want the most, and it's quite important also, isn't it? I want many things, at least a bit.

Today, I'm dreaming of moving to Turku, where one can study also Creative Writing in the university. I'm also interested in folk songs and that kind of historical culture, I don't know how exactly it should be translated into English. There's also a thought about finishing my university studies in Finland (like in ten years...) and then moving for example to UK or Ireland to study Creative Writing there. Of course, there are a few things to consider, like the fact that I don't even know if a non-native speaker has any chance to get to study Creative Writing in English. Or if a non-native speaker who has an excellent skill of speaking English has some chances, that definitely doesn't mean that I had :D But well, a girl can have her hopes. And dreams. Even the ones that change once a day...

Strangers

Title: Strangers
Author: toyhto
Main Character: Regulus Black
Rating: PG
Prompt: 003. Strangers (100quills)

Warnings: mentioning alcohol, swearing, that's all

A/N: There was already first snow this year and I was in my bed, having a massive headache! So unfair. Also, I feel a bit weird titling this story after its prompt, but it was such a good title...
