Icon Meme

Snatched from shadow2serenity 

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six 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.


Ah, my default.  Snatched from http://still-flying.net/  way back when I first started my LJ.  That was only a little over a year ago, but my default icon has never changed.  Reason: one very dear friend calls me 'captain' and has since long before I saw Firefly.  Also, I love captains.  My screen name of jackwabbit is a combination of a familial nickname of wabbit and my love of three Jacks-Jack London, Jack O'Neill, and Jack Sparrow - CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow.  As the pic in my profile says, captains are love.  But of all the captains I've loved and love, well, as much as it pains me to say this to Jean-Luc and some others, I'm going to quote Nathan Fillion here: "Malcolm Reynolds, well, that's the bomb." No, really.  In all seriousness, I simply adore Mal, and I understand him and it is not hard at all for me to hear him, and...ok, I'll stop.

Made by me.  That's me and Michael Shanks at a Stargate con in New Jersey in 2007, and, um...that's a story right there.  My husband once remarked on this event that I was more up than Shanks, and for any of you who have seen him, you know that takes a lot.  But, you know, four cups of tea will do that.  I do believe I'll have to post that story in another post.  I'll link to it when it's done.

Made by iconsofisis.  Jack O'Neill, in Abyss (one of the greatest episodes of Stargate SG-1 EVER).  Needed a thanks icon, and only Jack and Daniel friendship would do.

Made by lemonpiefirefly , just after the younger Fillion's episode of PG-Porn (Nailing Your Wife) was released.  Just a general, well, OH YEAH icon.  Because, really, Nate does cheese so well.

Made by me, after seeing the Castle promo trailer for about the hundreth time.  Why?  Well, because it was pretty.  Truth be told, though, I don't use this much, so it might have to go soon.

Oh, one of the greatest icons I've ever seen!  I'm not a huge animated icon fan, but this one...oh, yeah.  Nothing fancy, but oh so right.  It's NaNoWriMo and it's The End of the World flash video.  What's not to love?  If you've never seen The End of the World, here.  Oh, eff the link.  Here ya go.

And I suppose that's all!

Hey I know you!
Checking out the LJ sights and found this. Too funny -I remember talking with you a few times at that NJ convention and envied your energy! I'm the one from AK.

Re: Hey I know you!
Holy crap! Yes, you do!

How in Hades did you find your way here?

No matter...great to have you! Most excellent to see you here!

I obviously can't do the meme thing with you (yet), as you're brand spanking new and have only one icon, but let me welcome you officially to the warren.

*clears throat*

Ahem. Welcome.

Here's a Daniel hug to brighten your day.

Re: Hey I know you!
PS-I still have your business card. Also, thank you.

You probably don't know this, but one of our talks is one of my fondest fandom memories. In a way, it's funny to talk to you again, as you're 'the random stranger who liked one of my stories' in my mind.

Your kind words regarding A Long Road Home will never be forgotten (in fact, they are the reason it's included in this year's Stargate Fan Awards-no way I was throwing that one out!), and you are welcome here anytime.

Also, The Bare Naked Ladies ROCK. I knew I liked you for a reason.

Re: Hey I know you!
Such kind words - thank you so much. ALRH is still one of my favorites -still waiting for a sequel;) I'll have to check out the awards. I really enjoyed talking with you as well. Definitely a highlight for me as well and your picture with Shanks came out awesome!

Thanks for the welcome. Still figuring LJ out, we'll see how it goes. Oh and the Barenaked Ladies totally rock. I was so glad I got to see them one more time before Steve left -oh well. I still love them.

Thanks for the Daniel hug:)

Re: Hey I know you!
You are quite welcome and once again - thank you.

A Long Road Home does have a sequel. Intuition. Go here.


I have more ideas in this series, too, but, well, I got eaten by a Firefly, and I haven't looked back.

LJ is funny. I meant mine to be a fic archive. I was using ff.net and a few other sites, but I knew so many people who housed their fic here that I thought I'd give it a chance. Now, my LJ has turned into a place where I post all sorts of things-many times things that I want to return to myself and want to keep all in one place, like favorite vids, etc. There is actually not a lot of fic here. I do put my new stuff here, but I'm not going to take the time to move all my old stuff.

That said, I did make a master fic list (http://jackwabbit.livejournal.com/45241.html) here on LJ, finally, and that has been both invaluable and so much fun.

And the coms are fun. You can find them on any topic, and it's nice to be with like-minded folks. Very easy to keep up with fandom that way, too. If you have any questions, fire away and I'll try to help. I've only been here for about a year, but I think I've mostly got it down.

I also enjoy my little userpics and the best thing about LJ is the ability to set up your posts however you want. Public, friends only, private (you only-I use that as a mobile document storage device), or with custom friends groups where you can share your post only with a few other people if you want (lothi, lolmac, and lpff - I'm looking at you).

Anyway...I like it. Hope you do, too, but no matter what, as I said, you're welcome at the warren!

Re: Hey I know you!
Thanks for the link to Intuition! I missed that one. Good story, but a bit too much J/S ship for me. Not my thing , but enough team and Daniel stuff to keep me going. I love the character Kyle.

Thanks for the info on LJ. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it, but trying to broaden my horizons. I noticed alot of the fandom was in LJ so thought I would check it out. Not sure of my theme yet - "sports/sci-fi fan in the semi-remote Arctic" maybe? :) Thanks for the welcome!

Re: Hey I know you!
You know, it's funny you mention that. Intuition is a very, very odd fic for me. You mentioned a sequel, there is one, so...I gave the link. But it is damned shippy. And that is soooo not me. I'm not fond of Intuition. Many others love it, but it's just so different from most of my stuff that I'm not fond of it.

I do love Kyle, and there is more in this series that doesn't do much J/S. One day I'll get around to to it.

The thing about writing, for me at any rate, is that sometimes (ok, almost always) I'm not in control. Intuition wrote itself, and dragged me along kicking and screaming. I like my angst and my UST, but true ship? Not so much.

So, my apologies for that. The rest of the story I like, but that part? Not so much for me, either. It's not like it's bad, just not my thing most days. Apparently, though, I go through phases with my ships like I do with everything else, and every now and then I'll indulge in reading a J/S, but writing one? Who knew?

I never thought I'd see the day that I wrote Daniel/Vala, but that's happened, too. Muses are funny things.

Anyway. Thanks for reading, and I'll talk to you later.

Anybody else bite on the icon-picking? ;)
Apr. 22nd, 2009 03:17 pm (UTC)
Guess not, but that's ok. Is this an official bite-back?

Took me a nanosecond to get that, but when I did...


Had to add a letter, just because it was that great. NomNomNom indeed.

Right. Icons. Let's see:



Sorry for editing a million times...playing with how to do the pic thing.
