Reply to this post with ICON ME! and I will pick five of your icons. Make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts. This will create a never ending cycle of icon glee...

I gots these icons chosen by jigglykat:

xanatosii Once upon a time when I was a wee fangirl at uni, I was a HUGE Disney's Gargoyles freak. As in, I wrote something insane like 300,000 words of fan fiction, had websites, attended cons--you name it. And I first saw the episode this screencap from from at Crescent City Con in New Orleans in 1995, before the 2nd series premiered in syndication, because Frank Paur was a guest and brought it and the Hallowe'en ep to show at the con. I'd always loved David Xanatos, but the revelation that he and Fox were an item just made me GLEE. And when you could clearly see that, despite all his faults, he genuinely loved her, they became pretty much my fave canon couple. Somewhere on a lost harddrive, I started a story about how they first met while on a cruise ship taken hostage by Dingo and a crew of thieves. That story still lives in my head. And in the very first Yuletide, when I got matched on mtgat I had a blast revisitng them 10 years later.
bunny slippers I may not have always been as stalwart a Doctor Who fan as I am now, but I remember with amazing clarity the first time I saw "The Five Doctors" and just shook my head at the constant "______ of Rassilon". So I always referred to Time Lord Bullshit as "The Fuzzy Bunny Slippers of Rassilon". Then eventually (2006?) I made the icon.
brothers bloom Last year, when I was determined to steal a ficathon, I was ALL ABOUT con men, grifters, and thieves. I'd seen the trailer for The Brothers Bloom and immediately thought "THIS FILM WAS CLEARLY MADE FOR ME" but then the theatrical run was blink-and-you'll-miss-it and it took ages and ages to come out on DVD. I think the first time I saw it was a pirated DVD with Korean subtitles. I did eventually buy it, and requested it as a Yuletide fandom, and got a FANTASTIC Boom Boom vignette as a result. This pleased me. I'd made the icon pretty much in the event that I gots a story, so I could sue it to gleefully post about it... which i then did.
batcat So I have this Batman Begins sequel that lives in my head, with Alexa Davalos as Selina Kyle, and Summer Glau as Talia, and Brian Dennehy as Ted Grant, wherein Selina believes her 13 year old sister Maggie (who was home alone while Selina was out turning tricks) died in the Narrows the night all that shit went down with the mob and Arkham and the Scarecrow. And Selina gets taken in (and off the street and out of the trade) by the geezer who runs the gym down the street--a former wrestler who went by the name "Wildcat". And she ends up involved in underground Ultimate Fighting circuit, and at night rips off the Falcome family while wearing motorcycle leathers and a skimask. And they put a hit out on her. Meanwhile, supermodel Talia is romancing Bruce Wayne, and he has no idea that her father was Ra's al Ghul, and he's still prowling around rooftops at night and runs into Selina when she hits a Falcone nephew. And there's like crazy violent UST and stuff. And then he has a Hallowe'en costume fundraiser at the newly rebuilt Wayne Manor and Selina steals Ted's Wildcat mask so she can sneak in, and she accidently foils Talia's assasination attempt, and STUFF HAPPENS and it turns out Maggie is alive and well and living at the mission run by cranky nuns and everyone lived happily ever after (kinda). And HUGE CHUNKS of it are my taking the events of Her Sister's Keeper and Year One and Long Halloween and trying to think how they would play out in the Nolanverse.
lost girl MY NEW SHINY, OH YES. Sure, the actor playing Bo isn't very good. but her breasts are MAGIC, and I quite like everyone else. And Kenzi and Hale and ARESOME, and Dyson's junk could cure cancer, and Trick is SO MY FAVE OMG, and did I mention (practically) canon OT3 of glee with Lauren/Bo/Dyson? Cos YES, PLZ.
