(Some things are not great right now, but I don't want to deal with those things. So there.)

So rather than an extended rant about that, I thought I'd post these icons! Most of the pics came from here or here; I only cropped and resized, for the most part. Graphics are up for grabs, always; no need to credit me with these, since I did so little to them.

I'm pretty sure I need to make a batch of flapper/1920s ladies icons! This is mostly the result of Boosette doing a picspam of that subject earlier today (which led me to a bunch of other Tumblrs, including FuckYeah! 1920s!). Best picspam EVER!

Also, now that it's occurred to me, I can't unsee Kel and Maura as a pair of flapper sportswomen.

Also: breaking up with old hobbies -- in my case, sewing, knitting, dollhouses, dog agility, and possibly writing original fiction -- most of which are still taking up space in my basement. And all I really want to do now is cook, goof around with the dogs in a disorganized manner, and play with fandom. Time to sell some fabric, maybe?

Icon Spam!

Icons are up for grabs to anyone who likes them, always. Credit and/or comments are shiny (though mostly I can't remember where I got the photos).

First, eight rainbow icons. Happy birthday, [ profile] cranky__crocus !




Second, some questionably-Photoshopped Pierce fandom icons I promised people on Glake like two weeks ago. Better late than never, yes? (I apologize for two things: my limited success at splicing multiple photos together, and my inability to see anybody but Leelee Sobieski as Kel.)

Fal/Zahir, Kel/Jon, Kel/Roald, Kel/Lalasa, Sabine/Raoul )

I made these with [ profile] green_maia in mind, but they're also available to anyone else who would like them. In total there are twelve still icons, one animated gif icon, and a "Friends Only" banner (because the cap just suggested itself for that application).

(Screencaps are from, and this set of icons focuses heavily on Tennant.)

8 more icons and 1 banner under the cut! )

I mostly make icons with text and pictures both, of course -- most often song lyrics and screencaps. But it feels wrong to slap lyrics over images from a Shakespeare production, and equally wrong to add anything unnecessary when Tennant's face is so expressive. So these are just crops, for the most part. Let me know if you'd like something specific.

(I'm home sick today, and fighting the urge to just wallow in misery. Hence playing with graphics in hope of distracting myself -- and I think it's working.)

Anybody know of a free program for making/editing animated gifs? Limited-time-free-trials would also be fine. What's not fine is the Bannershop "free trial" the sticks a whole new frame with a hideous stripe across the middle 30% of the icon at the end. "Watermark," my ass.

(Icon, such as it is, is by me and is up for grabs to anyone with the capacity to remove that last frame.)

ETA: GIMP did the trick! Yay! Thanks [ profile] opalgirl28 !

Further ETA: [ profile] green_maia , I don't know your feelings on animated gifs, but if they don't drive you mad, you're welcome to snag this one. I'm working on some other Hamlet icons, too.

Icon Meme!

.... 'Cause I haven't done one in a while, and I have me some snazzy new icons. I'm gonna cheat & use more than one for some questions.

(Gakked from [ profile] bradcpu  while I was browsing for Buffy fic.)

Icon to the left: Image: Leelee Sobieski in Joan of Arc
Character: standing in for Keladry of Mindelan (Tortall)
Text: lyrics from Dar Williams, "The Easy Way"

There's some discourse, right now, about identifying with characters: how does identifying, or not identifying, with a character influence your relationship with the story that character appears in? Is identifying with a character a good thing, or a bad thing, or neither?

I never thought much about this before... )

And this is a good place to talk about my icon. )

This icon meme is from [ profile] stormwreath , who got it from [ profile] rhiannonhero . I don't know who said "Icons are the crack of LiveJournal," but that person speaketh the truth.

Pretty pictures under the cut. )

Oh yes, I have a graphics program now! Woooot!

So, I offer you a bunch o' Buffy icons with song lyrics. Feel free to download & use these if you like 'em. The first one was [personal profile] green_maia 's idea, quite a long while ago. There's another one that goes along with a little fic I wrote for [ profile] still_grrr a couple of week ago. The rest are pretty random... MP3 player + Buffy fanaticism + graphics program = these icons.

Oh, and the screen caps are all from because they're awesome.

Also, I'm totally addicted to making these now. So if you want an icon (or several), let me know! Give me a song lyric and a scene/character/pairing, and I'll deliver.

Icons under the cut, if it works right. Yes, they're a little bigger than actually icons right now, because I have the space for it. If (ok, when) I start running out of space, I'll scale them down.icons!! )
