Icon Meme-age  
1. Reply to this post with "SOMETHING WITTY HERE," 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 glee.

badboy_fangirl picked these five.

1. I always loved the fact that Logan was casually reading through Duncan's notebook when Duncan went to the bathroom, so that scene was an easy one to remember. When Logan said that sarcastic line to Veronica a season later, I knew I wanted to icon it, and almost immediately I remembered the notebook reading scene and figured the two would fit perfectly. And they do. Now, I use it whenever I'm venting about something. :)

2. I liked the sexiness of the black-bed photoshoot for season 02 of The Vampire Diaries, and Nina's legs behind Ian, while they held hands had this juxtoposition of heart and heat, so I wanted to capture that moment.

3. I don't ship Damon and Katherine, but I enjoy their scenes, and this one featured one of my favorite moments with them. Katherine playing all sweet and playful with Damon while he just wasn't having it. Plus, their faces next to each other, their expressions, they're just so pretty!

4. I wanted something from the compelled 'I love you' scene in "Rose," and honestly, this was the best I could come up with. It was before the actual confession or compulsion, but I liked the look on his face, and how you could see the necklace in his hand.

5. This was when I delusionally hoped that the writers of The Big Bang Theory would actually wake up to the awesome chemistry and potential between Sheldon and Penny. The 3rd season premiere had Leonard trying to get with Penny non-stop (and she wanted him too -- why is still a mystery to this day), but Sheldon was (very understandably) going through some real trauma, and Penny not once, not twice, but three times brushed Leonard off to go and help Sheldon (or made Leonard go help him). Sheldon was her main concern, and she chose him. I loved that. *sigh*

I finally have more icons and haven't done this in a while, so "SOMETHING WITTY HERE."

Here you go. :)


(*Did you see him on Nikita last Friday?)

I did indeed see him on Nikita. Even though I wish he would cut his hair because it's making him look like a hobo, he turned in a great performance. He was also on Psych a few weeks ago.

Something Witty Here *is totally lame this morning*

That is not lame, if it is, then I am lame because I did the same thing!


* Yes, I know I made this one, but I've always had a fondness for it, and I love that someone snagged it.

I'm starting to get into TBBT because it's on reruns EVERYWHERE right now. I LOL through the whole thing. I love Sheldon so much.

As for #4, I just wanted to say -- yes! For some reason, even though I love that scene liek whoa I've never found an icon I liked of it -- until now, of course. I somehow missed it in all your yummy goodness that you've got, but now I've got it and I love it! It's so lovely.

Damon and Katherine with their faces that close together are adorable, really, and especially since that scene is fairly chill for the two of them both.

I ship Ian/Nina's legs, just to be clear :D

I'm almost done with VM S3, so I'll have to go back and rewatch S1 sometime soon for this scene. I don't recall it off the top of my head, but I do remember his smart-ass remark from later. His delivery is so great.
Arabian: Kermitarabian on November 9th, 2011 07:40 pm (UTC)
TBBT is still hilariously hilarious, but I loathe Penny/Leonard with a fiery passion akin to none. WORST. CANON. COUPLE. EVER! Ahem.

#4, yeah, for me, it just wasn't an easy scene to icon. Glad this one works for you. :)

Nina legs/Ian = proper thing to ship. ;)

Re: VM - it's really, really early on. Logan comments on Troy talking to Veronica to Duncan -- who is on his pills -- looks all bad and goes to the restroom, shoving his bag at Logan. Logan peruses. :)

Okay, for you -- and you did have tons to choose from! Had to go with the Kermit though as you're the only other person I know who has one. :)

I'll just reply to these here, instead of making a new post! Which, thanks for asking, you didn't have to do that!

1&2 - Snoopy and Kermit both are staples of my childhood. I grew up on Peanuts and the Muppets, and when I found those icons, they were both so joyful and fun and in particular, with Kermit, just so what I remember of him from when I was a small child. Plus, I say "Yay" a lot, and it was necessary for communication purposes.

3 - Well, it's true, and it has been my whole life. My first crush was on Bo Duke, and it's essentially snowballed from there. Fanfiction is really the tool to having a fairly successful relationship with a fictional character, unfortunately. ;-)

4 - You have to laugh so you don't cry. The book is SO SO SO bad. I mean, all the Twi books are bad, but BD takes the cake for ludicrous beyond crack-cocaine induced ludicrous. Therefore, I cannot wait to see how they make it into a movie, and I already have plans with a friend who finds it as silly as me to go see it and LOL through the whole thing! I can't wait!

5 - Oh, good ol' S1 Alaric. I absolutely love his face, and how the text there captures the sentiment in his expression. Plus, this is when Damon and Elena were asking him for help to rescue Stefan from the Tomb Vamps, and he really didn't care then! Oh, how things have changed!

Wheee! I love to do icon memes! I also wanted to mention that I LOVE your icon #4 - the look on his face *dies of teh pretteh* I love the sincerity on his face in that moment. *happy sigh*
Arabian: Damon & Elena11arabian on November 13th, 2011 03:46 am (UTC)
He's so beautiful, and Damon loves her so much. Sighing right along with you. :)

Ooh, that's such an awesome way of putting it! :D

And that icon from 'Rose' is so pretty, I love it!

While I'm patiently waiting for your post (this time I HAD time for it. I'm surprised myself!) I want to do this! Also P.S. I've been caught up with TBBT. Although I barely seen the end of season 4, I did watch s5 so far and I love Penny, Bernadette and Amy as pals!

That's cool. I'm patient. God, this week was too much stress. I had like 4 people massage my back because I had a test and got yelled at. Today is a Godsend and I was soooo happy to get my Thursday shows and then find out that this episode was The Vampire Diaries mid season finale. I was like "NOOOOOOOO WHY!" haha. You loved the episode! I DID TOO. I can't wait for your post. ♥
