I got this from peekaydee, but anyone is free to comment and join the ~chain of memery~.
1. Reply to this post with 'Icons!', 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 - allegedly - create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.
The icons peekaydee selected were:
As people I have flailed over FMA before probably know, while Ed and Al are my favourite FMA characters, Hohenhiem is right behind them on the list - I love him to pieces. One of the main reasons I prefer the manga is the foregrounding of the Elric family stuff and, you know, actually giving Hoho a plot arc and character development (and how tragic it is...)
Anyway, I love this icon because it explicitly connects Ed and Al with Hoho (and the pun on the whole Sins plot, given his role in the backstory), as well as the pretty, pretty colouring.
TTGL FUCK YEAH!
...Okay, I just like this icon because it's a really freaking pretty piece of fanart that still managed to get across all the BADASS and EPIC that Gurren Lagann is all about. And it's Badass!Simon, who is like my favourite TTGL character of any kind, but Boota's still there too which somehow gives it the right amount of adorability for Simon and prevents it from being too generic - it's Badass, but it's specifically Simon.
So I may have just kinda finshed Code Geass earlier this week, and spent the past few days finding shiny new icons.
Anyway, the finale continues to make me cry like a baby every time I watch it, even without context - and this moment, when Suzaku tears up is normally the moment that kicks off the bawling. Because pacing issues and plot holes aside, I like CG for the characters, and my favourite is the whole Suzaku-Lelouch relationship. So the fact that after all they've done to each other, how much they've hurt each other, the fact that Lelouch smiles as Suzaku kills him on his orders and Suzaku still cries over it, it ruins me. Oh my poor broken babies... I am in a permanent mode of wanting to give Suzaku a hug.
Yeah, iconwise I like the framing and the way that the image has somehow been altered to look even more weirdly realistic. It feels very "in the moment", with the feeling of the moment being ;_;
It's an adorable little kitten meowing. THERE DOESN'T NEED TO BE A REASON FOR KITTENS.
I'm pretty certain this icon came from one of the JF wank comms in the wanksplosion after JKR
Plus, I really do love both the whole Dumbledore/Grindelwald thing, and Albus Dumbledore as an individual character. This is just a cute and amusing way to get that across.
So, let me know if you want in, and I'll suggest icons at you.
