Drop me a comment and I will give you 3 interests on your list, and 3 of your icons, for you to explain. (You can explain in comments if you want, you don't need to do a whole post unless you feel like it.)

rhye asked about these.

chrono cross- Chrono Cross was one of the very first rpgs I ever played. FF8 was the veryvery first, then FF7, Legend of Dragoon, and Chrono Cross were the three games my brother got me as 'congratulations, you're cool now' presents when I decided I really liked playing games. XD I always wanted Serge to have a happier ending than he did. Of course, I also always wanted to know if his name was pronounced 'surge' or 'sair-gay' like Russian or something. Ah, the days before voice acting in games. [/nostalgic tear]

kakashi- Kakashi-sensei is the coolest ninja since sliced bread. I was on quite a Naruto kick for a while there, reading the manga, and Kakashi was my favorite. Don't tell Sasuke. >.>

rubedo- JR! Rubedo, aka Gaignan Kukai, Jr. or just Jr., is from the Xenosaga series. He's quite possibly one of my favorite video game characters ever. Plus, he's got a fun, angsty backstory. *purr*

Hakuryu and Goku, from Saiyuki. Such cuties. This ep, Goku has just fallen down a very steep cliff, not unlike a well. And Hakuryu.. well, the Hakuryu = Lassie jokes abound. Plus, I was just making icons and thought that would be a cute quote for this image. I like how this icon turned out.

HARPER! Seamus Zelazny Harper super genius from the Sci-Fi series Andromeda. It was such a good show back in the day. Anyway, I (once again) was just making icons and decided to stick the words on. He is a little evil genius sometimes, is Harper.

*laughs* The emoturtle! I don't remember the exact circumstances anymore, but I was talking to a friend, and we were talking about our emo rp characters, when I THINK I called one of them an 'emoturtle.' I'm sure it made sense in the context of the conversation. Maybe. I happened to be making other icons at the time (wow, that's a recurring theme) so I went and found a pic of a vaguely emo-looking turtle and.. voila.

Death Cab for Cutie is an awesome, awesome band that I love. They did Blacking Out The Friction, Sound of Settling, and Soul Meets Body - which was overplayed like whoah. A lot of their songs are connected to characters and fics for me.

Infusco Bonitas was a giant, four year running Harry Potter RPG I ran/played in. I can't even begin to describe it. It was a ton of fun and just a great game.

Psi Corps is the telepathic organization from Babylon 5 that Lyta Alexander used to be a member of. They're like mind-Nazis, basically. The telepath arcs are my favorite from the series, and all my favorite characters are in some way connected to the Corps. :D

As for the icons!

The first one is my vaguely Roy/Hughes-ish icon. But it can also be seen as gen. The lyrics are from an REM song, Night Swimming. I like the line because Hughes and pictures go together so well, and Roy has that picture of the two of them on his desk.

The second is Landamn crack. Hughes and Scar kept getting thrown together and needing to work together, and it descended into this mock-sitcom where the two of them share an apartment in New York. So icons were made!

The third is just...Shigure with a pair of panties. A friend of mine made it, and I find it hilarious.

hi! ::drops a comment:: Damnit, I was saving that! Now it's dirty. Oh well, five-second rule:

I do believe the emoturtle conversation is in PSW, actually. Because I don't believe I was present, but I've read it. Not positive.

And I am poking for meme purposes, if that isn't clear. :)

emotional sadism, neil gaiman, rai'kirah

1. emotional sadism

Like many things, I REALLY don't like this in real life. But in fiction, it's fascinating to watch someone get ripped apart at the seams emotionally, simply for the enjoyment of the person doing the ripping. Destroying someone's psyche for the sake of enjoyment alone, or because it gives a rush, sexually or something close akin. Things where an individual is given complete and utter control over someone's life - at either the consent or apparent consent of the one being controlled - also falls generally into this category.

2. neil gaiman

He wrote Sandman, baby! The best American comic book out there, IMO. His novels aren't bad, either. He's just got a fascinating imagination that weaves good stories.

3. rai'kirah

Like so many things, this comes back to Carol Berg's first trilogy (Transformation, Revelation, Restoration), which are some of the most wonderful books I've ever read. The Rai'kirah are the demon race within that series.

Icons:



The Doctor [pictured] is an alien from a planet called Gallifrey. He's 900-and-change years old, has a spaceship that can travel in time and space (and he's been through quite a lot of it), and has a extremely strong fondness for the human race. In the scene capped, the Doctor has just been hit with a piece of information that either makes extremely little sense, or completely changes his existence. I needed another "WTF?" icon, and that's what I decided on.


Shinra seems like the type of organization that would have a plastic surgery division, and there has to be SOMETHING to explain the fact that Rufus went from an explosion in an airship to something that was, well, fucking hot.



A quote, from Takin' Over the Asylum, an old BBC miniseries. Anyway, both that icon and the "Inspired" one that is my current default are quotes from one of the characters in the show, a manic-depressive named Campbell who is just...lovable. Preceding the scene that quote came from, he was leading two different companies on, saying to each that the other had offered him a contract. The main character questions him on WHY, and that's what Campbell answers. You should watch the series, btw. It's a lovely work about humanity in all it's fucked-upedness, basically.

Chubu Daigaku- Chubu University in Japan. I was an exchange student there in 96. Didn't learn shit, except that Aussies drink a lot.

Last Geek Standing - the name of my former webcomic. We need to pay for the domain again.
Sunshine Biscuits - gotta fix that typo. They make Cheez-its. I love cheez-its. Their old factory is where we're planning on filming our movie.

Watch this and understand "The America"
http://media2.mk12.com/v5_qt_html/2000/moa.html

The 2nd one is from the Class Gateway where I went to college. The campus is built on a series of hills, so you had to walk uphill to class both coming and going. 1804 was the year it was founded.

I found the word bubble option on Photoshop.

fish: I like fish. *shrugs* Twister was the last in a long line of goldfish both of the feeder and fancy variety, and other bettas. At one time, I had three bettas and four or so goldfish, but I decided not to get any others until move-out-age occurred, if even then.

intarwebs lawl: NET HAS DRAMA. AND PORN. You just have to lawl at it. :D

untitled: A friend's webcomic about dead people. :B


The bunny ears begged it. *shrugs* Alice in wonderland. Though it was a white bunny and damn I need to remake that icon.


I was listening to Beside You In Time by Nine Inch Nails when it came to put text on that icon. :D It works? Tsuzuki and Hisoka are partners, so they're always beside each other. Or something.


I found the image on 4chan and had to icon it because it was just that awesome. Ninjas with guitars.

cautionary warning, jwr, what's her face

Alrighty!

Cautionary Warning is an awesome song. From Black Heaven, (I've never seen the anime, but Tony made an awesome AMV with it and Final Fantasy)

JWR is my boyfriend's initials. ^^ He likes to pronounce it Jewer.

What's her Face is from HomeStarRunner's Teen Girl Squad. She's just my favorite. ^^

Hm. This is Chris Kirkpatrick from 'N Sync. (I know. I was a huge fangirl back in the day) Those images amused me, and he always amused me, so I decided to make a gif once. It's probably hard to see, but he has a gummy bear on his tounge on the "I'm Busy" frame.

Who can't love Marvin? But honestly, I originally made this icon for my cousin, cause he was always angsty and depressed whenever he posted. (OMG i'm 19 and I havent' had a girlfriend yet woe is me) But, he deleted his journals, and i decided to keep it.

This one's got a bit of a story behind it. ^^

My boyfriend used to religiously hang out with his buddies on Wednesday nights and they'd play Smash Brothers (back in the 64 days, and now melee on the cube). When one of them'd get the pokeball that released the bees or unknowns (or whatever they're called, I forget my pokemon) The ones that would fill the screen. There we go. Anyway, they'd say "Beeeeeezzzz!!!".

I wanted to make a new Ken icon, so I was diggin' in my pictures, and came upon that one, and thought, IT'S PERFECT! =D

bad poetry, polylingual profanity, wolfwood's cleavage

Bad poetry. It's like bad movies, or bad fic, only it rhymes. Even when it shouldn't. What can I say? I'm a total masochist about this stuff.

Polylingual profanity. Hee. It's one of my life goals to be able to cuss in every single language ever. *shrugs* Because?

Wolfwood's cleavage. Wolfwood, from Trigun. He has man-tits. And they're sexy. Kinda. ...I think this one was mistressrenet's fault... or maybe angstymcgoth. Can't really remember.

Icon the First! The text is from a song (..."song") by Wesley Willis. If you don't know who Wesley Willis is, I will upload. The image is the Man, from Burning Man. Every year, the hordes assemble to watch the fucker burn, and every year he lights up, raises his arms, and something goes wrong. Like his left arm falling and the lights going out. But he's a rock star, and since the show must go on, he stood there proud and asymmetrical until he burned into little burny bits. Then there was anarchy for awhile. It was fun.

Icon the Second! The text is a quote by Hunter Thompson. I'm sure there was context, but really? Weasels. The image is Caine the Longshot, from Trigun. He was created for the anime, since the show started before the manga was anywhere close to being done. He doesn't speak, only appears in two episodes, and completely rocks. Or maybe that's just me.

Icon the Third! HAVE YOU NOT SEEN BIG LEBOWSKI? He is the Jesus, and he bowls. If you will not competition bowl with him on the sabbath, that's okay, man. He was gonna fuck you on Saturday, but he'll fuck you next Tuesday instead. ...Now I have to go watch that movie again.
