1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee.
#1 Aww, this is my kitty-cat, Doyle. My friend had taken some pics of my cats and this was the only icon-worthy one of any of the three. I just basically cropped and resized. His fantastic, bitch-please expression, eye o' evil needed no enhancement. *pets my pretty Doyle* (Seriously, literally pets my pretty Doyle.)
#2 I made it while I was still watching Supernatural, and this is a direct quote from Dean pretending to be someone else talking about himself (Dean=awesome) over a very, very handsome shot of Dean. Now, I'm actually no longer watching SPN; it just lost me at the end of season two really when they made Ava a stupid, corrupted by evil human, and then the first couple of episodes of season three did nothing to draw me back in. But, I love Jensen Ackles -- I still have fond memories of him as Eric Brady on Days of Our Lives. I think he's gorgeous, talented, charismatic and I do love Dean. So I've kept this icon for a few reasons.
I've kept it because (a) Jensen is so pretty and I do really like him, (b) I have some people on my flist still who religiously watch SPN and I like to have this icon to use to respond to their fangirl-ing, but mostly (c) because harper47 who is one of my closest LJ-friends is a big SPN fan and uses her own Dean icon quite a bit and I always want to be able to match her Dean icon with my own. I used the textured background on it just to add some pizazz because Dean's a pizazz kinda guy.
#3 I'm not a die-hard Michael/Sara shipper by any stretch of imagination, but I enjoy them very much and I wanted an icon for when I talked about Prison Break and because I'm a couple-girl, I went for a couple shot. I just grabbed a pretty cap, lightened and then added a golden texture to warm it up for the extra fuzzies!
#4 I just ADORE this on-set shot of David Tennant and Billie Piper dancing during the filming of "The Idiot's Lantern." It's just so adorkable. I had no idea what I was going to do with the image, I was planning on just cropping, resizing and doing a little brightening maybe with a soft texture just to add some depth, but using vivid light (I believe) with whatever texture I chose created this bright vividness to certain colors and I just loved it. It really made the image of them dancing, and all of the fun and joy they seemed to be feeling in that moment, come alive.
#5 This is (obviously) a manip of the three of them I did as my main icon for dw_forever (Companions of Forever), my community dedicated to all things Doctor/Rose and Donna. I wanted it for my own personal use as well simply because I certainly have enough series four posts that discuss the three of them quite a bit so it would be used. It's actually not my favorite shading or texture, but it was created to fit the look of the comm itself. Eventually, I may make another icon that has the three of them that I like better. As for the phrase "companions of forever," I have it on here (and as the name of the comm) because both Rose and Donna told someone (Rose to the Doctor -- when he asked ... awww!, Donna to Martha) they would travel with the Doctor forever. ::Sniff, sniff:: His best girl and his best mate. Man, I wish there was SOME WAY we could have gotten at least one episode of the three on some adventure together. Sigh.
