How to find a PB

Finding a PB How-to )

Jun. 2nd, 2010

Daily post

Movie Meme:
02 - The most underrated movie
Tarzan: The Legend of Greystoke.  Possibly not the most underrated ever, but definitely more so than most.  I think this movie fails to catch its audience for several reasons, the most prominent being that most Tarzan fans expect to see the more action-oriented serials Tarzan, as opposed to this plotty thing, and the audience who would be interested in plot tend to dismiss Tarzan as a "kid's story."  I think this is an excellent retelling of his origin story, though, for those interested.  If you can find a copy.

Quote offer:
I owe folks icons and one drabble.
Icons: [info]foodie, [info]snapesgirl, [info]angela_snape, [info]zephre, [info]kabal42, and [info]wolfish_cat
Drabble: [info]zephre
So what would folks like?  Zephre, HP or Merlin is quite welcome.  I'm kind of picky about some pairs, but I'm always open to Gen if you prefer character-centric.

And the unguessed:
#5: The Young Sherlock Holmes
#7: Dragnet
#12: The Bride
#14: Clueless

And to everyone who offered support and condolances--Thank you.   I'm doing okay.  Behind on everything now, and still having a bit of trouble sleeping, but...I'm recovering.

So...two things today.

I know I've been uber quiet.  Life's been kicking my butt in a major way.  I'd really like to be unstressed, but that doesn't appear to be likely to happen any time soon.

But...to reward myself for doing work homework this weekend, I got into a new fandom.  So, to make it easier on myself to find those in that fandom, I was thinking I'd make a filter, for when I want to read posts specifically about it.

Also, I think my icons need a shakeup.  I did this once before, and I'd love help.  So...which are your top 10-20 icons of the ones I have now (the keywords are fine if you don't know how to/don't want to link to the icons) do you like best?  And what icons do you think I'm missing?

Icon Meme!


default oldest newest
saddest happiest angriest
cutest sexiest funniest
fave ship fave fandom fave animated
best quote best textless best stolen idea
use the most favorite

IF YOU COULD BUY SPACE FOR MORE, WOULD YOU: I've thought about it. I was amazed I made it over 100, to be honest. Probably not, but you never know.
DO YOUR ICONS MAKE A STATEMENT: Always. Mostly that I have way too many fandoms
WHAT FANDOM DO YOU HAVE THE MOST ICONS OF: Harry Potter, far and away.
AND THE SECOND MOST: QAF. Damn that man for being so gorgeous, anyway (*ponders looking for more Brian icons...*)
WHAT SHIP DO YOU HAVE THE MOST ICONS OF: Harry/Draco. You're shocked, right? :P


ETA: FYI, I didn't create the meme. I just copied it. Feel free to make any changes you want, as it's no skin off my nose.

Just something for you to look at here.

Deepest Sender still not updated. :P

Working on HP_Creatures fic--now at 9500 and counting.

Actually considering doing a holiday fest this year--[info]snapelyholidays. Even HD_Holidays didn't tempt me as much the first year... Danged if I know why.

Still need to do my babble from the alphabet meme.

Work still sucks.

Icons for my [info]turtle_avenger here.

That is all--for now.

I've been uploading icons lately.  Feeling the need for more Buffy icons.  Anyone have any favorite iconners for that show (or Angel)?  I specifically like Willow, Oz, Dru, Spike, and Tara.  And I prefer stuff with text and pictures.  Would be greatful for help.  *looks out at everyone with puppy-dog eyes*

Share time!

Art to look at:
Disney Heroes by David Kawena - quite the mix here, really.  And not just the ones you'd expect.
And the latest Will Turner

And icons made of them.

State of the Elf again

* Job is...nuts.  They've been getting twice the work I'm able to do in a day.  And have no one else doing it.  And I'm scrambling to be able to do as much as I am.  Plus, I'm not really doing it the way they want to end up having it be done.  Someone else does a bunch of lookup and callbacks that I couldn't do yet because I didn't have access to the relevant system yet.  So eventually they want to have three of us doing the lookup, callbacks, and entering all at once.  Which would slow things down incredibly much.  I don't think they're quite cognizant of that just yet. :P

* Have been wibbling back and fort on a reclist of Anj classics.  So...the question is, would there be any call for it, or does it seem redundant or silly, and I should just keep my big yap shut?

* Have not been playing in my games at all of late.  I suck.  Mostly because I can't really at work without feeling like I'm breaking rules, and by the time I get home, I'm wiped.

But I have been able to rp a bit through email and a few private rps... 

Harry and Draco have been together since September of 2006, and got married in 2007 (realtime).  One private ceremony with just very immediate family (Lucius, Severus, Sirius and Remus) in the Netherlands where it was legal for males at the time (the rp took place in 2002 at the time, I think), and one public ceremony several months later in the summer that was just for show.  And now that we've moved them to "today," Harry's asked him again, now that it's legal for men to be able to marry each other in England.  So he's been working on that.

And my Blaise has finally gained a Theo.  We set it up that they were together in school a bit and then separated by the war.  And now they're engaged to be married.  My Blaise is very much of the "love doesn't exist" mindset because of his mother, but his friends and lovers have convinced him otherwise, and so now he's shocked, but very happy.  It's odd, but sweet.

* Writing - finished my HP Vamp fic, but for the editing, which will begin this weekend.  Need to start my D_D, and have ideas for another fic as well that wants to push the D_D right out of the way.  And if I finish all that, I might claim another prompt at HP Vamp.  Oh, and I have drabbles to do, too. :)  And I have this amazing fic idea that I *have* to find the time to do, too.

* Also…have been having an idea that I’d like to do one of those “commentary tracks” for one of my fics.  Anyone have any preferences for which?  I might do a poll at some point.

* [info]hd_worldcup.  If you’re not watching, why not?  I haven’t had much chance to read what’s been posted so far, but I have enjoyed what I’ve read.

* Politics - I'm starting to get annoyed with both candidates.  I was so thrilled when they both ended up as frontrunners, because I thought it meant we could avoid the “vote for me because I’m a …” argument.  Why they couldn’t just run on the issues…  Well, I suppose I know: they’re too close in most beliefs, so they need better ways to separate themselves.

* Have been considering switching my default icon to something different.  Not sure to what yet, though.

That Icon Meme again

Did this in October, but I added a bunch

Make a list of all the characters in your icons. (Although you may have more than one icon of a single character, they only go on the list once.) Alphabetize it. Take the first two people on the list; that's your first pairing. Second two people; second pairing. Etc. Then write your reaction to each pairing (or a snippet of a hypothetical fic featuring each pairing).

Decided to go with snippets this time. And I didn't include real people in this list. Just the people I use in RP as the charcter I use them for.

micro-ficlets behind the cut, with lots of HP, a bit of QAF, Firefly, Stargate, Beatles, and many others included, some mention of character death )

Dec. 16th, 2007

The PB list

This list is opinionated, selective, subjective, and will likely never be complete.  That said, I am also ALWAYS open to suggestions on the characters listed here. :)  Who do you like/use/have seen used for these characters?

Starting with my pups, in order and by game:
Blaise Zabini )

George (and Fred) Weasley )

Padma (and Parvati) Patil )

Draco Malfoy )

Remus Lupin )

Severus Snape )

Rabastan Lestrange )

Wow...looking at all that...I think I'll stop there.  I do have opinions on other characters.  Just...those are the ones I've played, and therefore feel strongest about.  Maybe I'll do a second bit at some point.  Mostly I just needed the distraction.

Links because I can, and miscellaneous things

Link one: The Ten Doctors (Dr Who, that is...)
A comic strip featuring all ten doctors, and most of his companions as well.  If you're a fan of the old series as well as the new, this is a great read.

Link two: My favorite house-icon maker has made a new batch of icons with His Dark Materials quotes.

Link three: [info]florahart has compiled the IJ stats for the big surges since May.  And yet, the site is still running quite smoothly...  Unlike others I could name...

To Do List:
Advertise [info]founders_legacy @lj
George reply to Hess
Blaise reply to Fred
Post Movie Drabbles

Post PB list
Write Tonksathon fic
Start next D_D fic
Write out first chapter of collab with [info]kabal42
Back up old RPGs at GJ before it's too late
Create Asylum for boys to play in

I'm sure I've forgotten something...

So, not that anyone reads this journal any more, given that I RP too much, but I am still here...

I'm just bursting with too much to do.  I've been setting up a new community for posting links to great icons for RP - [info]pbicons_dir.  It's already got a ton of stuff, and I and the two other  icon searchers are constantly adding more.  There are lots of actors, models and musicians there, and I'm always open to adding more.  Consider this your invitation. :D

I am still working on my 3some piece...  Hit a snag, and not sure where to go from there...  But I've hit 5000 words, I think.  Very glad I still have three weeks before I seriously have to start worrying about D_D again, cause I really want to get the 3some piece done before that.  Though I did forget that Draco's birthday is coming up.  I'd really like to continue my little tradition of a birthday story for him, if I can...  Any H/D suggestions would be welcome. :)

And now, instead of more actual content, I offer something memish.  I have 8 characters I've played over 4 games (well, more, but the others are either continuations, or didn't last long):
the character list )
So, my idea is this.  Ask my pup up to five questions, or ask them to write a letter to a certain character, and I'll do my best to come up with something for them. :)  I just want to get writing again, and they seem to be more vocal these days.

Jan. 25th, 2007


So, I went through and deleted a bunch of my less used/old/ugly icons, and now have a good number  of free spots to fill.  I will be adding QAF icons, which I already have a small handful of that I adore.  Also, I've renamed all my icons so I can find them easier.

Thanks to everyone who gave me feedback.  It helped a lot. :D

Part the first: Anyone else want me to pick my favorite of your icons here?

Part the second: More opinions about my own icons would be appreciated.

Part the third: have been doing a lot more Simming since I got my new computer.  Pictures can be found here.  Yes, they are generally slashy.

Harry, Draco and their two children (ETA: Yes, [info]kabale, there are new pictures there of the kids... :D), a bit of Blaise and Hestia, The Hobgoblins as created by [info]littlecup, and a group of male sims at University from the Marauders days.

Icon shakeup time!

I'm getting more and more sick of my icons.  I never know what to use any more.  So, I have decided to hold an icon beauty contest.  Okay, not so much beauty, but favorite.  Rules are thus:

1) Any icon getting a vote will most likely stay.  But the more votes, the more likely, so feel free to choose according to what you like rather than what others have already chosen.
2) Each participant gets 10 choices of Icons.  No more.  So choose wisely.
3) If you would like to proffer an alternate icon similar to something I have, feel free.  It will not count as one of your choices.  Ditto for entirely new icons.

Fandoms that I would like icons of/more icons for: Star Wars, ST, QAF (particularly that one...), Elfquest.  Would also really like an icon of my OT3, if anyone has a clue where to find one -- Severus/Remus/Sirius.
ETA: Oh, and GO icons with Queen-specific quotes, though others would be gleefully glanced through, as I have none at the moment.

My Top Ten )

Have at it!  I'll wait a week, then close the thread.

Jul. 6th, 2006

And the winner is...

So, here's the one that was the winner, and I'm qute pleased, so I'm going with it.  I also added a few others.  I couldn't resist.  Partucluarly the Snape Fanboy one. ;)

So, I seem to be in an icon mood, and I've downloaded a program that will allow me to make animated ones. (If anyone wants a link to the program, just holler and I'll post it)

I've got a little list of icons that I want to make or find:
  • Remus/Harry of some sort - I haven't found any art with these two that I'm particularly fond of, at least not enough to make an icon out of, and I really don't want a channish icon, thanks... :S
  • Shakespeare.  I could probably go find a Joseph Finnes icon from the beginning of Shakespeare in Love and use that...
  • Harry/Draco xdressing.  Should be easier to find an picture I like, just have to choose and get permission
  • My OT3: Sirius/Severus/Remus.  *smirks* And now I can actually make one that'll very much make me happy.  Just have to decide the cast exactly. ;)
*sighs* New programs are dangerously evil.

I do have a dilemma, though, and hopefully people will have advice to offer.  I have an icon I've always loved:

It was made by [info]sunshine_icons, and they made each of the Marauder's messages, so I asked if they knew how to do animated, and she said she didn't.  Well, that was about two years ago now, give or take, and I think the journal has gone defunct.  I made myself a new icon using the originals that does what I want, but I don't want to use it without letting the creator know somehow.  I've posted a message at the original post, but so far no response.  Should I use the icon, and just credit [info]sunshine_icons with the original, or should I wait a bit longer and see, or should I try to make my own shots and make a new icon?

Another great way to get to know me...

Gacked from [info]ladybelz , who snagged it from [info]smutella who snatched it from [info]anael

Chances are people you don't even know are being introduced to your journal every day, either randomly or through someone else. In addition to recent entries, people can get to know you better by what you posted in the past. With that in mind post a link to your entries on this day three months ago, six months ago, nine months ago, a year ago, and two years ago. If there was no entry on that day, link the closest date.

Three months ago

April 3, 2006: I was Mokey Fraggle, and I posted my recs for the past week or so.

Six months ago

January 3, 2006: I had a new job, mused on Doctor Who, and posted my [info]merry_smutmas favorites.

A year ago

July 3, 2006: Another rec-post for the week.

Two years ago

Didn't have this journal.  I started it on July 25th

And while I've got your attention, I'm thinking of changing my default Icon.  I miss having my fandom represented in my icon.  So, what do you think?  Should I go back to having a Draco Icon?  Or should I do something else?  And if Draco, should I use one of the ones I already have, or should I look for something new?
