Fun little icon meme gotten from [livejournal.com profile] sara_tanaquil:

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 glee.

The five ions [livejournal.com profile] sara_tanaquil picked for me:

1. Babylon 5 remains one of my favorite shows of all time. While it has its flaws (and is also getting rather dated) it still has some of the best, most cohesive, clearly planned story and character arcs I've ever seen. Additionally, it has some of the most badass female characters ever. This speech is the epitome of said badass-ness, at least for Susan Ivanova (Delenn's "If you value you lives, be somewhere else" is up there as well). She's leading a fleet into battle and this is what she offers as a battle-cry. It's epic.

2. This came from our oh so painful Smallville days. (I loved that fandom, I still love that fandom, but oh, the canon! Sooo painful). While watching, neechan and I found it very difficult to not be constantly shouting "Just tell him, Clark! The truth, tell him the truth!" And once we realized we were practically quoting Aladdin, well, this just had to happen. ^__-

3. Ah, my smut icon. So, the quote is from a Tom Lehrer song "Smut" which I was listening to at some point, as you do, and was like "hmm, I really should make an icon along those lines" and decided to use some of my more...lascivious artwork. The first shot after the text is Ban & Ginji from GetBackers (and is over 10 years old, wow I've been on deviantart for over a decade! Huh...). The next is a Xmas present I did for my brother, cause he was getting bored with me doing all the m/m stuff, wanted a little f/f action. Third is an illustration I did for one of my sister's Shosetsu Bang Bang stories. The fourth is my own characters from my brief web manga that I always wished I'd done more with and just...never got around to. OOPS. Last is a Clex pic, done as an illustration for Astolat's fantastic fic Revenge.

4. Hee, this remains one of my fav of my SGA chibis, actually, goofy as it is. This is part of a pic I did for SGA secret santa. The prompt had been "something cartoony. something a little anime. team. (meeting new species). and this is where I wound up. It was a lot of fun to do, and some of the first animated gifs I've done in my own art, a technique I've really come to love in recent years.

5. 10 just cried so prettily (yes [livejournal.com profile] sara_tanaquil, if you've not seen New Who, it is maybe a bit spoilery? It's him saying what he thinks is a permanent goodbye to one of his companions). I rather loved the seen for the pretty crying and then figured it's always good to have at least one sad icon, for those certain times...

Whee, this has been a lot of fun, thank you so much for the prompts [livejournal.com profile] sara_tanaquil! ^__^
