01. Comment to this entry saying 'ICONS!' and I will pick 6 of your icons.
02. Make an entry in your own journal and talk about the icons I picked!
This is from a photoshoot with The Big Bang Theory actors; Kaley Cuoco and Jim Parsons, respectively Penny and Sheldon. I love this shoot mostly because Sheldon seems to be Clark Kent/Superman and Penny is Wonderwoman and I'm kind of flaily and geeky about all the comics references in TBBT. All the references, really, but mostly the comics ones. Also, I ship Sheldon/Penny like crazy. I started out a Penny/Leonard shipper, but maaaaan, do those two here have chemistry in spades.
Anthony Stewart Head as Uther in Merlin, even though the text is still hung up on Giles... So am I, to be honest. I loved Giles like I never loved a fictional character ever before (even including my enormous crushes on Gilbert Blythe and Bernie from Blue Castle...). And this icon cracks me up.
Women of Star Trek Reboot. Nyota, Winona, Gaila, Amanda. There wasn't nearly enough of women in the movie, but I'm giddy and happy about my corner of the fandom which immediately gave even those women who had one scene and were forgotten their own voice and story and character. And I love even more that the fandom seems to have taken Number One and Janice Rand and Christine Chapel and Tonia Barrows and Cait Barry and various other TOS female characters that appeared even only in one episode, and made them into heroines in their own right. This is why I love fandom.
Freema is so extremely beautiful. And on a less shallow note, Martha is my favourite new!Who companion. I've read somewhere someone saying that the new companions are like Heart (Rose), Mind (Martha) and Soul (Donna), and it strikes me as very true, and I was always one for the mind above all else. And Martha is simply fantastically awesome (though so are Rose and Donna &hearts'), but I still love Martha the most.
Gary Oldman as James Gordon from Batman nolanverse, clearly. If you're reading this journal and don't know that I'm obsessed... well, are you reading this journal? Singlehandedly responsible for destroying my writer's block, and for well into 200 000 words of fic I wrote about him. (And about Bruce, but I'm mostly doing it for Gordon) Commissioner Awesome indeed. (And this picture is right after he's been made commissioner, following the capture of Joker, and the insane chase where Gordon was the one driving the van that Joker was aiming at with a freakin' bazooka.
Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy, clearly. If you don't know him, you've probably been living under a rock for well over a century. And this icon always cracks me up, because yes, this is how he shows excitement. Recognize.
Ask me any question about any of my stories/'verses/AU's, whether past or future or unwritten scenes and I will answer. This even includes the future of some verses that may potentially be spoilery. If you're really lucky, I'll give you a snippet.
I have a feeling at least some will be about ground!verse... please feel to guilt trip me about this one, I need the motivation.
