Free for the sharing. =)



ETA: And, no, this isn't actually spoilery. If anyone was worried.


ETA 2: OFF-TOPIC, but, READ THIS. XI movie spoilers, gen fic, Spock-focused, multiple characters, it almost made me cry.

The Avatar Book Club turned out to be even less fun than the arts & crafts contest.


Sokka: "Piggy had it coming!"


Zuko: "It doesn't matter what Mustache-Boy says, Ethan Frome is a wretched book. Ironic my ass."


Teo: "Doctor Frankenstein's work was a testament to humanity's genius!"


Katara: "I'm just saying. He locked up his insane wife in the attic, he must be a firebender."


Toph: "What? The prince didn't tame the fox because he was hungry!"


Haru: "Katara, I promise that when I said Pride & Prejudice reminded me of you, I wasn't suggesting you have a superiority complex, okay?"


Aang: "I...I just don't understand. The pigs are so mean to the other animals. This is a mean book!"


You guys got any?

timepiececlock: (That bright imperious line)
How do people without paid journals post icons? Seriously. I've had a paid journal for 2 years until last month, so I can't use my scrapbook anymore. I made some spiffy new icons, but don't have room to put them in my own icon queue.

Is there a website people use to link to gif and jpeg files? Is there a common one?


Anyway, check out the icon. This poem rocks. Of course, it's not a shippy poem at ALL yet I put it with a mildly shippy icon... oh well, it works. I do think it fits in terms of mood (poem and the episode), and the caption "you will go faltering after that bright imperious line" is a prophecy for Zuko's life, and description of his personality, as sure as anything Aunt Wu might say.

I guess this is sort of a spoilery icon... but there are other spoilery icons out there, and mine doesn't really give anything away, and if you haven't seen the episode by now then you're not a respectable Avatar fan anyway.
timepiececlock: (Ritual sacrifice w_ pie!)
I was trying to find images of funny road signs so I googled "serpent road sign" as an image.

I only got two pictures, and one of them was a road-side sign for a place called "Serpent River."

The other is a picture of...well...

There should be a reality game show. We'd call it: )
timepiececlock: (Eviler Than You)
I've been meaning to make a large A:TLAB rec list for a while, and since [livejournal.com profile] donna_c_punk is getting into the show, I thought I'd go all the way and make a Fandom Guide. It's as extensive as I could think to make it with regards to links and communities, with some of my personal commentary on the fandom as a whole, and a fic rec list at the end.

*NOTE: If a listed link lacks commentary, it simply means I'm not familiar enough with it.

timepiececlock: (Ed - poison crazy lush)
1. 2. 3.

Three versions of the same icon, two of them with an third image. #1 is the lowest color count and resolution.

This is the full transcript of the text. )


I am such a perfectionist-Nazi, I spent over three hours editting 6 screencaps, then editing two of them even more to move both characters inward, then making an extremely wordy icon. Aaahhhhhh, procrastination! And my wrist hurts. >( But also Photoshop practice, which helps me for my day job. :)

So, I thought I'd give you guys the screencaps, original and the altered versions I used. Might be slow for dial-up folk. )

The icons are free to take as are the screencaps, original and edited. Gods knows maybe I'll save someone else the trouble of moving characters around.
timepiececlock: (Ed_train - Float On (red))
I made some icons and several bases last night. I figured I might as well consolidate all my avatar icons so far into one post.

timepiececlock: (Spike naked! YAY!)
Skimmed the post episode 31 FMA discussion on the Adult Swim board, and people were oohing and ahhing over the stuff revealed with Wrath, Greed, Envy, and Sloth all in the same place at the same time. All the stuff about Wrath's history. They kept talking about how exactly a homunculus is made from a failed transmutation.

And that got me thinking about Buffy. Because, you know, a part of me is always in Jossverse at any given moment. And this is what I was thinking about:



EDWARD: I think I figured it out. This homunculous, it's not a homunculous we let out. It's a homunculus that we made.

ALPHONSE: We made a homunculus? Bad us.

EDWARD: Thaumogenesis is when doing a spell actually creates a being. In this case it was like, a side-effect, I guess. Like a price.

WINRY: What?

EDWARD: Think of it like, the world doesn't like you getting something for free, and we asked for this huge gift. Mom. A-and so the Gate said, 'fine, but if you have that, you have to take this too.' And it made the homunculus.

WINRY: Well, technically, that's not a price. That's a gift with purchase.



::tiny giggle fit:: Anya. Love. Always.

timepiececlock: (Origin of Love)
May I present the most bitchy, difficult, detailed icon I've ever made.

Lyrics from "Hedwig and the Angry Inch", illustrated by yours truly and Photoshop.

Because the song is awesome. Share and spread the love.
timepiececlock: (Rose/Nine across universe)
Long I have searched for good Princess Tutu icons! And I found them! In [livejournal.com profile] ushitora_icons.

EDIT: Ahhh, and there's Scar/Lust icons too.

EDIT2: I die of teh prettay.
timepiececlock: (time travellers)
Season 7:
BUFFY
But you're right. I mean, I... I guess everyone's alone. But being a slayer? There's a burden we can't share.

FAITH
And no one else can feel it. (beat) Thank God we're hot chicks with superpowers.

BUFFY
Takes the edge off.

FAITH
Comforting.

BUFFY
Mm-hmm.




I was thinking about making this a Fruits Basket icon. Maybe like so:



YUKI
But you're right. I mean, I... I guess everyone's alone. But being a Sohma? There's a burden others can't share.

KYO
No one else can feel it. (beat) Thank God we're seriously hot.

YUKI
Takes the edge off.

KYO
Comforting.



Anyone wanna make it for me? In my day of extreme laziness? We could have lots of different versions!

timepiececlock: (Jin practices brooding SouthPark)
[livejournal.com profile] chill_shadow posted some wonderful South Park characterizations of the SC trio in [livejournal.com profile] _champloo.

I just had to icon it.
timepiececlock: (Haru beer)
A bunch of new FB icons for you. A couple animated, stills and bases. I will never get bored of making Hatsuharu icons, and Shigure will never not be pretty.

teasers:

_x__x_


Shigure, Rin - mild dialogue and image spoilers for volumes 10-11ish, deliberately misconstrued on my part to be falsely representative of actual events, cause I'm evil that way )

Hatsuharu and Yuki: no spoilers )

Bases for your own adaptation:
Haru, Rin, Shigure )
timepiececlock: (Banana jutsu!)
After much work and strain, I made my first Dr. Who icon!



Lyrics from "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything" [YSI], originally Veggie Tales, in this link by Reliant K.

It was a real bitch to make it small enough to all fit on one icon.
timepiececlock: (Gaara sucks at math)
I realized I'd never made an icon for Gaara before, and I had one slot left on my 50 icon bracket... I call it the "Gaara sucks at math but that's okay cause he can kill you anyway" icon.

Free for the taking.
