- Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
- Make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose.
- Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
- This will create a never ending cycle of icon glee.

[livejournal.com profile] xcircus_freakx chose these:

1. Echo: I found the picture I used for this one on deviantART way back when. I fell in love with it and had to have it as an icon. It's actually one of my oldest, now that I think about it. :D

2. Merman and woman: Again, another picture I found on deviantART. I love merfolk, and mermen in particular, and this picture was just so cute, so I turned it into an icon. Another one of my oldest, actually. ^^

3. Mysterion/Kenny: Ever since it was revealed in South Park that Mysterion is Kenny and Kenny's deaths are more than just a running gag, that he's cursed and actually comes back from the dead, I've been obsessed. Not only with SP and/or Kenny, but with his curse and his superhero persona. Naturally, I needed an icon. Fanart found on deviantART.

4. Envy x Ed: Oh, gosh. I don't know what to say about this one. I love the Envy x Ed pairing, and this picture just stood out to me when I found it... wherever I found it. I don't remember. But I loved it and had to have it as an icon. So, I made it into one, and it's stayed around since. And I don't think it's going anywhere any time soon.

5. Brooklyn: Another fanart pic I found on deviantART. I love Brooklyn, and this picture was just gorgeous. Again, it was impulse and obsession that led me to make an icon out of it. <3

6. Dragon and boy: I've had this icon for, like, ages. I really don't know what to say about it, other than I like dragons, and I thought this picture was pretty. So, yeah, made it into an icon. Also found on deviantART.

Icons chosen by [livejournal.com profile] mlina

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us: Sunstreaker and Sideswipe. Just after I discovered the awesomeness of the Autobot twins, I searched DeviantART for them. I found this picture and fell in love with it and had to make an icon with a line from one of my favorite Linkin Park songs.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us: Denahi. Another picture I found on DevART. I adore the movie Brother Bear and even though Kenai is my favorite character, Denahi's made of awesome sauce just because his totem is Wolf. Naturally, once I found a good picture of the middle child, I had to make an icon of him and make it a point to showcase his totem!

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us: Zi. I found this one on the official Pon and Zi website. I love these little guys, they're so full of angst it makes them sickeningly cute. When I saw this picture, it gave me chills - had to make an icon out of it.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us: Mozu. Yet another picture from DeviantART. Mozu is an OC in The Gargoyles Saga, part of the Tengu Three, one of Kirin's students. He's sweet and shy and it's hard not to love him. The words to the song fit and I had been dying to make an icon for him, so there you have it.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us: Cessily and Julian. Ok, after this scene in the Hellions mini-series, who couldn't love the brother/sister relationship between these two? Enough said.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us: Julian and Sofia. I love this picture. The fact that Julian and Sofia are the only ones in complete color and they're dancing above the rest of the student body on air is wonderful, I love the underlying meaning behind it.

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us: Betelgeuse and Lydia. Yet another one found on DeviantART. This picture gave me chills when I saw it. I've always loved the idea of Betelgeuse being Lydia's mirror image on occassion, speaking through any reflective surface the way ghosts are rumored to do, but the fact that he's actually coming through the mirror and holding her hand is beyond amazing and wonderful. The gesture should be sweet but something about it screams obsession and possessiveness to me and that's what makes it so awesome.
