this is really just a post about icons  
I am back at school ugh. I am pretty sure I had something else to say but now I cannot remember it so

goldy_dollar gave me:


1. Awww, baby Amy remains one of my favourite parts of s5 and her packing her tiny little suitcase and setting herself up for YEARS OF DISAPPOINTMENT is probably the scene in s5 that I found the most emotional, lirl. But this icon is adorable and great for when I am feeling sulky and/or pouty. Also I like the bright colours.


2. OTP 4eva~. The unfortunate thing about Cloen/Rose is that there are not a lot of icon options. But I like this one and it breaks up the zillion kiss icons I have, plus this scene is cute. AW YEAH BEACH MARRIAGE PROPOSAL. I also like the faded colouring.


3. It's Eleven! And his jersey number is 11! DO YOU C WUT THEY DID THAR. This is basically the clearest shot of it and The Lodger is awesome.


4. Glorrrria. I am not sure that she is still my favourite Modern Family character but she is still up there. It is surprisingly hard to find nice Modern Family icons, particularly of the characters I want icons of. (They are all Mitch and Cam, who are fine but not who I am looking for tbh.) This one is a nice shot of Sofia Vergara being gorgeous.


5. LOL Nathan. I like this icon because of the quote, which pretty much sums up how I felt when they killed Probation Worker #3.


6. HRH BAMBI. Omfg. This icon is one of my favourites because a) Bambi, b) omg her expression is wonderful, I cannot wait to use this icon every time I am skeptical or disgusted by something. Speaking of being skeptical and disgusted: true story, I still haven't watched Secret Diary 4x04. This show is so sleeping on the couch. NEEDS MOAR OF THIS HBIC.

fauxkaren gave me:


1. I remember seeing this icon around and being amused by it before I watched Community. And then when I started Community and got to this episode I was like "OMG WHERE IS THAT ICON?" Oh Troy. Oh Jeff. Oh, show.


2. AW YEAH ROSE MOTHERFUCKING TYLER. I really like the purples in this icon, and the text placement/size/readability. Plus, it is my obligatory icon of Rose with her big fucking gun. Useful when describing how Rose is a badass and haters should move to the left.


3. Jack Harkness/Rooftops of Cardiff was the true OTP of Torchwood and I am glad to have it immortalized in this icon. I can only hope s4 delivers more on this front.



I showed this gif to rose_dawson once and her reaction was like "YOU HAVE DOCTORED THIS GIF SOMEHOW, THIS CANNOT BE REAL".


4. This doubles as my Robin icon and also my Canada icon. I sometimes think about deleting it because ugh HIMYM I am so over you, but usually the Canada lulz win out. Robin Sparkles is probably the best thing to come out of HIMYM.


5. ...in addition to this icon. NESSIE! Marshall is one of my favourites on HIMYM most of the time. Also I like how this icon is made, well done whoever made this icon.


6. My lone Parks & Rec icon rn! Leslie Knope is wonderful and I love her so much more than I thought I would, seriously, she carries the show. The supporting cast is very funny, but rather than gritting my teeth through all her scenes like I do with Michael Scott, I eagerly await every Leslie scene. SHE IS MORE OF A HARRY POTTER GIRL, OKAY. And she would rather have waffles than your sentimental chicken soup, Ben Wyatt, Human Disaster.

firstofoct was pretty singleminded and gave me:


1. LOL This is my new favourite icon, it is so great. A) everyone I love in one icon! B) LOL EMO TEN. It combines all of my favourite things. That Rose/Martha/Donna/Ten shot should be in more icons because it is the most beautiful shot ever. AND THEN UP ABOVE TEN IS FOREVERALONE. Amazing.


2. Secret Diary may be sleeping on the couch but at least Billie Piper is still fabulous. I seriously have so many icons downloaded from this show just because each frame is MORE GORGEOUS THAN THE ONE BEFORE IT ilu Billie Piper. I like the bright colouring as well. Belle you are fierce.


3. This doubles as my ~srs English major~ icon and I like to use it on the rare times I am pretending that I know what I am talking about with respect to literature. I'm totally going to Much Ado for ~the play, you guys.


4. I was laughing with firstofoct once about how I had a million Ten icons uploaded and he didn't look happy in any of them, and then I found this one. A REAL SMILE THAT IS NOT HIDING ANY INNER PAIN OMG :O And then I showed it to her and we realized it is in fact pre-angst Ten, as it takes place in School Reunion before baby's first angst. ANGSTLESS TEN is a rare creature and not only when you are looking through my icons. Look at that grin! It is like he thinks the universe will let him have nice things.


5. lol and by contrast, THIS ICON. Omg Woo Girl Ten you are the best. The amount of fandom butthurt over that whole thing only made it better. As great as the snowy Oodsphere landscape was, whoever photoshopped this did very well and it is just hilarious to me. I have one on my hard-drive that also has Space Florida Amy photoshopped in and it is great too. YEAH TEN. KICK BACK AND RELAX BEFORE YOU MEET YOUR UNTIMELY DEMISE.


6. I don't know why this icon exists but the idea of Eleven + Harry Potter was too magical to pass up. ONCE A HARRY POTTER FAN, ALWAYS A HARRY POTTER FAN. I like to use it when I am yelling at people about what Hogwarts house Martha Jones would be in, or what part of Deathly Hallows made Ten cry.

Anyway, I guess if you want me to pick six of yours you can comment and I will.

Also, what's this I hear about series 6 not starting until Easter? EASTER IS LIKE THE 24TH OF APRIL OR WHATEVER. Ugh BBC. Why are you the way that you are. How am I supposed to spend the rest of my April? STUDYING FOR EXAMS? Pshhhh.

ETA: OH I remember what I was going to post. I was going to promote d_r_meta, a ~shiny new discussion comm centered around (duh) Doctor/Rose with weekly discussion points etc. Your mods are myself, firstofoct, shinyopals, mrv3000 and fauxkaren. So if you like Doctor/Rose and also like telling the internet how right you are, you should go join.

Also, what's this I hear about series 6 not starting until Easter?

AND THERE'S ONLY GOING TO BE LIKE HALF AN EPISODE. OKAY, SIX EPISODES. BUT STILL, I DO NOT IN ANY WAY APPROVE.

The amount of fandom butthurt over that whole thing only made it better.

I will forever treasure the day that the CiN clip came out and we all invaded each other's journals to laugh hysterically, only to go out into the rest of fandom and get butthurt all over our shoes.

UGH RIGHT? Supposedly they're airing two episodes over Easter weekend? WHICH DOES NOT REALLY SOLVE ANY OF MY PROBLEMS RN SO THANKS BBC.

I will forever treasure the day that the CiN clip came out and we all invaded each other's journals to laugh hysterically, only to go out into the rest of fandom and get butthurt all over our shoes.

omg I was just telling Hannah about that the other day. I distinctly remember loling with you and I think unfolded73 and maybe fid_gin and then wandering elsewhere and finding everyone filled with rage. There were like five fandomsecrets about it that one day! INCLUDING THE "HE WOULD NEVER CHEAT ON DONNA" ONE rofl good times.

Doesn't the show always start around Easter? :s Which sucks this year since Easter is SO FREAKING LATE I CAN'T EVEN....but oh well! I suppose they especially want a late start since they're being all lame and giving us only half a season rn anyway....:/

Jack Harkness/Rooftops of Cardiff was the true OTP of Torchwood and I am glad to have it immortalized in this icon. I can only hope s4 delivers more on this front.

LOL OMG maybe he'll bond with some really tall skyscraper rooftops in the US!

Also damn, you have a ton of icons....O_o
Kali: dw :: peruvian folk band :: stateside_thirty2flavors on March 1st, 2011 12:22 am (UTC)
I think so, but this is the latest it's started I think? I thought I saw someone say that before that the latest start was April 17th, and I remember hearing rumours that this season would start around April 8th so the 24th feels like quite a delay. THAT'S BASICALLY TWO MONTHS :( I thought we were closer to one month now. Ugh. Just gimme a trailer, BBC.

LOL OMG maybe he'll bond with some really tall skyscraper rooftops in the US!

I HOPE SO. PLZ RTD. JACK/EMPIRE STATE BUILDING. MAKE IT HAPPEN. Or he can roadtrip to Canada and visit the CN Tower.

LOL Yeah I bought some a la carte when they sold them that way. Probably not the wisest financial move I've ever made, but shiny. The thing about icon space though is that every time I think I could never possibly want more, I max out and then want more.

Me!

And nice icons. I was loling so hard when I saw Ten wearing that in EoT. Though tbh I was a bit disappointed because I wanted to SEE what Ten did to piss off Elizabeth 1 (one of my favorite women in history!) and not just hear a sentence about it, but he was so funny in that scene.
Kali: dw :: cloen/rose :: bow chicka bow wow_thirty2flavors on March 1st, 2011 03:15 am (UTC)


That scene was hilarious! It took me a few seconds too to make the connection to Shakespeare Code, which made it so much funnier. I had been sure that would be left unresolved.

I sometimes think about deleting it because ugh HIMYM I am so over you, but usually the Canada lulz win out. Robin Sparkles is probably the best thing to come out of HIMYM.

lol IKR, I will keep my Robin Sparkles icon always for the Canada lulz and also because it was the best thing HIMYM gave me.

LOL @ Hannah's picks. It's like she has a hidden agenda.

S6 is starting near Easter I think to get even more people to watch the premiere.
Kali_thirty2flavors on March 1st, 2011 02:16 am (UTC)
I reject this logic though. IDG Britain do people just seriously wait for holiday television, it is so backward compared to how I am used to tv working. I don't see this helping BBCA either tbh but hey.

Anyway, this post reminds me that I need to upload more icons.

Wait, I assumed your comment meant that you wanted me to pick icons. BUT MAYBE NOT? Well anyway there they are if you want them lirl. The Ianto Jones' Diary one is A+

What were people upset about? I love that scene. :D
placebetween on March 1st, 2011 02:25 pm (UTC)
The supporting cast is very funny, but rather than gritting my teeth through all her scenes like I do with Michael Scott, I eagerly await every Leslie scene.
OMG SO TRUE. I thought I was going to have more secondhand embarrassment with Leslie, but surprisingly I love her much more than Michael. Most of the times Michael is on screen I have to avert my eyes and I don't really understand the people that ~adore~ him, but I adore Leslie Knope and I think she is simultaneously hilarious and awesome. I think Amy Poehler is Leslie in real life, which I know is wrong but hope is true, because a Leslie needs to be out there somewhere.
