whatever happens

Got this from starwefter.
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.

Here are the icons she picked:

Ahhh, Spike. I always want to talk about Spike. This is one of my favorite images of him, from the episode "Wild Horses" (which I love), where he's looking at the wall that Doohan has used as a scrapbook. The words are probably Spike's best-known quote, and, to me, illustrate the incredible, gallant courage of the guy. I'm not sure who made this image (which is embarrassing, but unfortunately true of a lot of my images). I use this icon whenever I'm feeling philosophical, or (heh) whenever I'm in the mood to look at Spike.

Now, this one, I know who made it - Sher. I love the Narnia movies, and I have a crush on Peter. The image here is from the first movie, when the kids all got trapped on the river, and Peter took a desperate chance to save them. This scene was, to me, where Peter truly came into his own, where his strength was tested and proven, and the physical strength that shows in this image is a symbol. I use it when I need strength, or when I feel I've conquered over adversity.

The beautiful Lena Olin as the wicked, devious, ruthless, dangerous, fascinating spy Irina in Alias. If you haven't seen the series (the first two seasons, anyway), then you'll just have to guess from this image how cool Irina is. And "I'm no angel" is such an understatement, it makes me grin every time I see it. I use this one when I'm feeling, well, dangerous. In a good way.

For those of another generation, this is a line from Simon & Garfunkel's "Sounds of Silence". I love the song. The character is Souzou Sagara from Rurouni Kenshin, whose death was epic tragedy and broke my heart. (I was more upset by his death than Spike's, believe it or not.) This is a Sher image, and I thought her choice of lyric was great for this haunting character.

Another Simon & Garfunkel lyric, this time from one of my fave songs, "I Am a Rock". I always identified with this song when I was a teenager, which is a bit depressing, really. The character is my primary lust from Rurouni Kenshin, #2 in my harem, Seijuro Hiko, in full attack mode. I use this one when I'm feeling dangerous in a bad way. This, too, is a Sher image.

Thanks for letting me share these, Dark Star!



Oh, you know I'll play. I lurve icons. And I've been meaning to drop you a line anyhow. I ALMOST made it to chat tonight before another mini-crisis (not mine, thankfully) hit.

I DO have a box I'm going to pack up and send your way on my next day off. It's long, LONG over due, but that just means you're getting a little something extra. Or a lot. Either way.
OK, this is tough. Too many I like. Argh!! I'll have to pick the ones that I think I'd most like to hear you talk about.

Shield Maiden
Spike Smile
Tidus & Yuna
Hopeless Frodo

Man. It was hard to narrow that down!

I'm sorry you didn't make chat. :(

But I'm excited about my box! *bouncebounce*
Okay, you told me to do it again so:

You've got a lot of information already there, so I'm picking the ones that interest me the most (leaving off the "so many bishies" one):

I'm outta here!
device, Heledd
puzzled Joey
fangirl squee, Kaiba ripping off tie
Yugi - I'm surrounded by idiots
