I want to make more icons. Not sure when I will necessarily have time to do so, but I've discovered that when I'm really motivated to do something visual, I will make the time to do it.

So, I want to enlist some help from you, my clever and talented flist. Following are some themes for which I need icons:


  • Stunned
  • Dead (as in from cuteness, or from "guh")
  • Squeee!
  • Bored
  • "You are soooooo wrong!"
  • Sympathy (hugs, compassion, that sort of thing)
  • Cocky, pleased with myself, etc.
  • You r0x0r! You're the tops, you're the Mona Lisa, etc.
  • Bees (yes, the kind that buzz :)


Your mission is to picspam me. Give me screenshots or photos from real life or cartoons, etc. which you feel convey any of these concepts. If they are from a fandom of yours, I will probably only use them if I recognize the characters, but feel free to give it a shot.

Anyone who provides me with an image gets to request an icon from me in exchange. With the caveat that it might take me a while to get to it.

Spam at will!

Feel free to use any of my bee icons - if there is an author in my icon listed, just carry that over to your journal when you name it! :)

Re: Let me try this again...
I tried to pick shots in your fandoms. And Crash, because I think that counts.

And that creepy old guy who sings that f-ed up song about the wibbledy something or other. I found that kind of hot in a disturbing kind of way.

I would like to state for the record that these images are from a folder on my computer titled "Icon_pix_for_Rachel" that I created about a month or so ago while still in annandale, as I had every intention of creating some surprise icons for you. But, um, I procrastinate, and am intimidated by the quality of icons I see everyone else creating, and only got around to one of them, which I didn't think was good enough to send yet ()

Anyhoo -- here's pics, in varying degrees of appropriateness and quality:

Thank you soooo much! I have tons of ideas for these. So much extreme hotness of various kinds... *fans self*

Can I make you icons? Anything at all! *smooch*

I have a Squee Icon that luridmuse made for me. You can swipe if you credit (the Elle Woods one). Also my CELEBRATE icon which I made. Also the Willow "Bored Now" which I made, but SD may be upgrading soon.

Holy CRAP! How much time did you spend on this, hon? This is tremendously generous of you.

Want an icon or two? Or ten? You've certainly earned them. I'll warn you that my style might be a little darker than you tend to prefer, but then you're enough of an old-timer with this crowd to be well aware of that :)

Anything in particular I can do for you? I'd be pleased as punch, really!

And thanks again! w00t!

Hey, darlin, here's something you should check out:
SGA S2 promotional photos. Click on the chunky picture to get in. It's interesting, because a lot of them are in civvies.
