Stupid ideas breed like bunnies.

About three weeks ago, I thought it would be a cute idea to make an LJ icon for everyone on the reading list.

It wasn't a cute idea. It was a bloody stupid idea -- and I have to stop wasting time, so I'm chucking the ones I have so far in this entry. If anyone would like any of these, feel free to take them. Some are a bit rubbish but I like some of them a lot.

Some were made with specific people in mind before I came to my senses:


Part I - Music and the film Almost Famous

1. 2. 3.

the restCollapse )



Part II - A small section on writing themes, from Millennium, 10 Things I Hate About You, XF...

13. 14. 15. 16.




Part III - General lairyness (Angel, Buffy, Pitch Black, mocking Ben Affleck and my new favourite show, The Smoking Room. Also, a brief moment of Keanu lechery.


17. 18. 19.othersCollapse )



Part IV - The modest Harry Potter section


30. 31. 32.a few moreCollapse )



Part V - The XF section. Sizeable because I know where to get the good crack screencaps, and with a wee Krycek bit.

40. 41. 42.not very subtle iconsCollapse )

You are a genius. I've grabbed 13, 15, 29, and 64. (Now how will I make space for them?)

Wow, these are terrific. You're so good at making icons! I say that it cannot be a waste of time to create such pretty. Except that it's probably also good to, you know, eat and sleep and stuff.

I nabbed a bunch, probably to live on my computer forever because I always find it so hard to say goodbye to the icons I already have. *g*

It's presumptuous of me to think that you made an icon with me in mind, but 4 jumps out at me. So much Snow Patrol lately.

Actually, I made most of the music ones with you and Snacky and Musesfool in mind.

I kinda love these all a whole lot.

I doubt that you got around to me, but if you did get around to me I would change my icon for you. AND I NEVER CHANGE MY ICON.

That's how fabulous these are.

And what a beautiful, generous project!

You shouldn't change that icon because most days I honestly believe you look like that, so well does it suit you.

OMG. No time right now to look, but which was for me? Was there one for me?

Oooooh. Pretty!

I think it was when I had to try to think of anime and Stargate icons that I gave up. Because all I know of Stargate since evil Sky took it off air, is Gouald bad, SG1 snarky-pretty.

But I was thinking of you when I made 20. I often think that that's what you long to say to some people when you go all polite and forensic during flamey discussions. *g*

I'm glad you like them. It's so odd to see that Parabiosis icon now. It looks so different to the way I would do it if I were to make that same one now but I like it anyway. Such a lovely quote and the sentiment reminds me of the story, which I must read at least every couple of months.

I'm grabbing 16, 42, and 45. These are so awesome! Thank you :-)

I'm glad you like them. There's a dearth of Skinner and Krycek icons about the place.

It's from Parabiosis, IIRC.

He was thirty when she met him, built like a poem, full of scapegrace and mettle. Something like that. Definitely one of the most popular lines of any XF story ever. *g*

gorgeous work!

I'm snagging #52 & 58 - I've been craving Krycek iconage, and these are fab.

I'm glad you like them. There are not many Krycek icons on LJ, which is odd even for a dead show. You still see plenty of Pros, MUNCLE and Trek icons.

Because you are brilliant, I've taken several of these, including this one, because Almost Famous is quite possibly my favorite film.

I didn't know you loved that film. Have you seen the Bootleg cut on the DVD? (It may not be called the bootleg cut in the US, might just be the director's cut or "Almost Famous: Untitled"). Cameron Crowe is such a big dork. That must be why I like him so well.

These are great. I'm completely in love with 13, 29, and 39.

I'm glad you like them. They were fun but the whole compulsive icon-making thing was driving me crazy *g*

I love you more than ice cream right now, because these are so beautiful.
