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.

4. 5. 6.

7. 8. 9.

10. 11 12.

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.

20. 21. 22.

23. 24. 25.

26. 27. 28.


Part IV - The modest Harry Potter section

30. 31. 32.

33. 34. 35.

36. 37. 38.


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.

43. 44. 45. 46.

47. 48. 49.

50. 51. 52.

and the bases, if you want better text on 'em:
53. 54. 55.

The wee Krycek section:
56. 57. 58.

59. 60. 61.

62. 63. 64.

65. 66. 67.

68. 69. 70.

and that's it. Done. Help yourself if you want. No credit or any of that shite necessary.

Man, these are awesome.

I am...paralyzed with indecision on which to snag. Pop quiz, asshole is leading, but the 99% of music and One day you'll be cool, and the bored!Ron just call to me. And Janeane. Oh, Janeane...

Who is that you've got as James on the MWPP one?

It's a very young Paul McGann from Withnail and I. He looks like the James I imagine on the occasions when I read 80s stories

He's *perfect*.

That one of MWPP is FANTASTIC. It makes me wish I wrote about them.

Do you want a similar-ish one of Snape and Hermione? Pick the highlight colour you want and I'll make it.

Ooooh, you are the BOMB!

All my good icons are made by you already.. Hooray!

I am fond of green, but don't use it if it doesn't look good (it probably won't). I trust you to pick what is appropriate.

Ah, I ended up snagging all of those I meantioned for future use. Was there one made with me in mind?

30, 36 and 37 were all attempts to make a Remus/Sirius sort of icon but I think that only the MWPP one really works. On 30 I don't like the Oldman pic I chose and on the other one the only thing I *do* like about it is the way the names work in that cheesy typeface. Despite the cheesiness.

But I also thought of you and snacky and lilydale when I was making the Almost Famous icons. You're the people who seem to think about music the same way I do, albeit from differing perspecctives.

That one is FABulous. *g*

That was kinda what I thought. *g*
