tick, tick, tick, tick, tick...  
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!

Snagged from la_esmeralda_, who gave me:

I ♥ Ginny Weasley a ridiculous amount. I know lots of folk don't like her and say she messes with their various OTPs in the Potterverse, but I can't get enough. She's fierce and competent and knows how to handle Harry in a non-manipulative, caring way. Something he needs, IMO. They're a good balance. She's a badass without enough wordtime in the novels.

Kate Winslet is probably my all time favourite actress. Here, she's Clementine; crazy, mixed up, tries-so-hard-and-fails-just-as-hard Clementine just trying to get by. I love her expression in this one, kind of gently inquisitive, with hot lip-biting.

Mickey & the Doctor! Primarily because Mickey doesn't get enough love, and this scene was sweet.

I... have a thing for slow dances, or just coupley dances in general. This icon epitomizes all that I like about them: the closeness, the intensity between their looks, how it seems to say 'no one else'. ... It's my uber romanticky icon ;]

The Last Unicorn! I grew up on this movie, and recently re-watched it for the first time in years. I really hadn't realised how angsty it was until I rewatched it, but I still love it. It's such a different look at humanity and emotion and love, through the eyes of a mythical beast that most generally see as tender. It kind of turns that idea on its ear, and I just... ♥. I'm not doing it justice here, but if you've not seen The Last Unicorn, or read the book, you really ought to. It's so good.

Okay, I could say a boatload about this icon, but I'm going to limit myself. I've never actually been swept up with a ship quite as thoroughly as Gwen/Arthur has taken me. This icon is probably my favourite, a representation of one of their best scenes in season 1. Here I think is when The Moment happens - they both behave to their utmost potential and start to recognise something in one another that they'd never bothered to before. It's a packed scene, complemented by the next two between them, but I really think that this is the turning point (or the start of the turning point ;).

ICONS!!!! *coughs* that was an invitation to tag me!

Also, WHY have I not yet seen "The Last Unicorn"? *Feels bereft as an 80s child*, also is that a DEMON SQUIRREL in your mood icon?

I do not know. If I could, I would lend you my DVD because you very much need to see it. Like, fifteen years ago.

I would not have called it demon, myself. BUT we could give it the anti-benefit of the doubt, given we don't know what happened after the moodtheme faded........ >_> O_O

Since I posted like fiend yesterday, the reply to this might have gotten lost. So in case you were wondering, my answers to this meme are *here*.

Also, I cannot look at squirrel's in the same way, ever since one tried to attack me last year at UofT :P

I love watching people slow dance. Not actually doing it myself because I fail at dancing, but I love watching it. Oh, and I love Ginny (although Ginny/Harry weirds me out because for some bizarre reason, my mental image of Ginny hasn't really changed since Chamber of Secrets, where she's like ... 12) and Kate Winslet.

And if you are still interested in this meme, icon me? :)

hahaha I fail at dancing too, but slow dancing is pretty hard to fail at. Or at least, I hope it is O_O! I think all I/you/we'd need is a strong male lead. And that is not wishful thinking at all.

Also, you have so many SPN icons and that makes me way more, inexplicably gleeful than it should. =D!

Haha, I told myself I wasn't allowed to have more icons of another fandom than SPN. Because it would feel weird, as if I was cheating on SPN.

... I never said I was a logical person.
