And you are always welcome to pick more of my icons and ask me anything about them.
iconssssss

Merry, injured, being carried by Orcs in the Two Towers DVD, which came out fairly soon after I fell into movie/RPS fandom, I capped it myownself. I tend to use it when I feel fragile or injured, which is way too often.


This one, I tend to use it when I feel stern and straight-laced, sometimes non-fandomy. But I also see a bear in a pointy tinhat (lower left side). Once I saw it, I couldn't un-see it, and it gives me a nice sense of proportion. magickalmolly made this for me for a birthday :-)


I had adopted Billy/Viggo as my semi-OTP, based on some joking they did back in the day, including a shirt on which Viggo had written: Pippin is perhaps the very finest honorary Gondorian that ever drew breath. (heart), Viggo (A.K.A. Aragorn, Pippin’s Bitch). Then the ROTK EE DVDs came out and there was a long joke about Viggo kissing Billy. I tried to make an icon but it didn't work out well, so I got permission of paintedheaven to use this one.

This one cracks me up! It's a photo of Viggo from when he dressed as a drag queen when auditioning for To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar. I think he's both serious and laughing at himself. Then absolutefiction was offering holiday icon add-ons, I asked for a menorah, and she came back with this lovely.


Medieval bunny! So much to love about this: it's a standing rabbit with a big stick, subverting the dominant paradigm; medieval, a big part of my past life and still an aesthetic happy place; the vellum is thin and shows the other side's pretty vine and leaves, which somehow appeals to my sense of fairness and balance. And the fannish plotbunny usage, to inspire myself. Used with permission of semyaza.

I'd always wondered why Viggo is in drag in that photo!

The Viggo/Billy one makes me want to go back and watch the FotR EE extras - except that they always make me sad.

Full of random tidbits of fandom history, me.

I'm hugely conflicted about this fandom, but I'd rather pretend it's all new and shiny than start angsting about it...

Marilyn Monroe in The Misfits, made by me. I've had a bit of a Marilyn obsession most of my life, and this is one of my favorite performances of hers.


Zoe Bell in Death Proof, and half of my Death Proof OTP. Probably the most famous stuntwoman right now, and a Kiwi to boot. I have a huge crush on her. In this screencap, she is actually on the hood of a moving car. Weeee!


Robin Scherbatsky from "How I Met Your Mother," as her Canadian teen pop star alter ego, Robin Sparkles. This is a screencap for her music video, "Let's Go to the Mall." Robin is a great character. She really grew on me.


John Cho looking pissy and hot. Thaaaat's about it.


Billy at the Beecake concert in Philly last year, pic taken by me, icon by sandelwood. A serendipitous bit of angsty lighting, eh?

I have never ever noticed the bear in the tinhat! (Mayhaps because I'm always distracted by corsets, wot?)

I also love your medieval bunny. <3

Go ahead and pick some of my icons if you like. I ought to update them, too, come to think of it.

You commented on two rabbit icons ;-)

You have so many icons! And they are very clearly labeled ;-) This one first, please:


and then, these:

They are clearly labelled for my addle-minded brain. *g*


I love this icon, and I'm tickled that you picked it. It's one of my oldest surviving icons...I think I just picked it up from a random stock set of icons, but it's wonderfully non-fannish & I use it often for sending love or hugs to my f-list, or when I'm feeling quiet and peaceful and happy. :)


This is from the Sherlock Holmes film...Gladstone, the poor pup, always finds himself on the wrong end of Holmes' experiments. I have an affinity for icons with random quotes (see: eddie izzard, terry pratchett, etc.) and this is definitely one of those. For those days when things don't quite go right!


This is for those days when things don't quite go right but it's everybody else's fault. It's Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory trying to blow up your head with his mind...this is about as close as I get to an angry icon.


Ugh, Robert Downey Jr is absolutely wonderful and my favourite! ♥__♥ This is also my favourite Holmes/Watson icon (even though Watson's not actually in it :P).


One of my billionty Shakespeare icons, which always makes me laugh. The quote's from Hamlet and the image is Old Hamlet's ghost from the Reduced Shakespeare Company's production, with quite possibly the best sound effect known to mankind. WHEEEEE.


Unf. This is perhaps my favourite porn star: Patience from Abby Winters. Gorgeous and dominant with bonus Australian accent, yis pls. *wibbles*

The teeny tiny text says "DROWNING IN THE SPLOOGE". It's Bill Murray in Ghostbusters, I once had a sex dream about him! I first used it for fandom_wank, but the world is full of splooge.


David Tennant in Doctor Who, or behind the sceens, from when he was first coming on and we weren't too sure about him. I figured anyone who could smile so happily while lying splayed on pavement was gonna be good.


Rachel Weisz! It's a long story: I was role-playing Billy Boyd in the Establishment RPG and he hooked up with Rachel Weisz. I loved writing with unstealthy and they had a sweet and moderately realistic romance. But I inherited the character as straight (so he wasn't with Dom) and vanilla, and clung to the vanilla part wayyyy to long. So we started a kinky AU, and had so much fun it turned into the Push-Pull-Push verse (moderate BDSM Dom/Billy/Rachel story). My partner's doing other stuff now, and I'm poking at writing some solo bits.

mmmBBQ! This one is a test, not sure if I'm going to keep it. It's Dom and Elijah eating at a taco truck, from January 2009.
