More icons

Well, I now have my second new laptop in less than two months but, on the plus side, my first new laptop should be repairable. I said it was a faulty memory chip, they said it was a virus, and they wouldn't do anything until I'd wasted two days taking it back to factory settings and rebuilding it... And guess what? It's now back with Acer.

Also on the plus side, my new netbook's red!

On the frustrating side, I've just sent a second story off to a certain fic exchange (having volunteered as a pinch hitter) and if one of them doesn't get posted soon I think I'm going to spontaneously combust. I had no idea how stressful the waiting would be.

Anyway, here are forty-four icons made for man_challenge (featuring the odd scantily clad man), pettyfer_stills, draco_chorus, and malfoy_icontest.

(No Legolas or Eowyn ones this time, because we're making complete alphabets over at legolasicontest and eowyn_icontest, and we haven't finished them yet :-)

Thank you!

(Are you getting bored with the alphabet? I'm having a hard time thinking of the suggested words, especially now we're near the end of the alphabet!)

Lotr Eowyn I'm no man anime

Why bored?:) not bored at all!:D
But the word are sometimes hard to find, that's true...

The galleries look amazing though:)

Can't imagine anything for X and Z...
I see Wind or Wild (wife of wine could be appropriated too for some pictures of Eowyn and Legolas respectively;))

Y is Young (Youth) and Yes or even Yesterday...
Last ones are the hardest:)

Anthill inside

We had major problems with an Acer one on one occasion - I've not had an Acer since, but S2C has forgiven them!

I think Craig Parker looks better as Darken Rhal than he did as Haldir... sacrilegious!

I like the reborn one - it does set my mind to Valinor, but I have lots of other things to do before taking my elves there... pity it really couldn't be Haldir!

My new one is also an Acer, but I notice they've made some changes to the design, which make it a lot better, though the screen resolution's not so good. But so far, I've had no sudden hang ups or crashes -- with the other one I was having to save my writing/icons every couple of minutes :-(

Craig Parker does look good as Darken Rahl, doesn't he? Unfortunately, his voice just isn't evil enough. I do love his Haldir, though. I wish you'd saved him, too.

I was pleased with the reborn one, though I don't think it got any votes. There was just something about the original picture -- I suppose he's almost in the foetal position.

Valinor... That is a long way off!

Tindome 2

It is a long way off - although we know that Tindómë is there when she tries to contact Buffy and finds she can't any more.

And it is not unlikely that Haldir will be released from Mandos Hall when his brothers arrive in Valinor. Can you imagine what he is going to make of Rumil being married to someone who is not-quite-an-elleth? And that his brothers have certainly reverted towards their Silvan roots?

Well, of course, my Haldir's in love with someone who's even less of an elleth! And he's bought into Eryn Carantaur, with its Harvest Rite, big time, LOL! So, if your Haldir's anything like mine, he'll probably be tolerant, but a bit uptight!

Hmmm. We both need Haldir icons.

In the mothballed story S2C and I were writing together ‘Sometimes,’ Dawn thought, ‘Spike can be as difficult to turn around and aim in a new direction as a super-tanker. Concussed, pissed off, Vengeance!Spike is a bit like a super-tanker on a sea of molasses.’ And, of course, she had quite a job trying to turn Buffy's thinking around in Return of The Key...

I have a feeling that Haldir, despite a sojourn with Lord Namo, is going to have remained very much a Galadhrim Warrior of status... He may be more like Buffy and Spike than he would ever like to admit when it comes to what he expects his brothers to have been doing whilst they waited for his return.

Remember Tindómë's summing up, to Arwen, of Faramir and what Éowyn did for him? (“She pulls the stick out of his ass?”) Someone may have to apply similar treatment to Haldir - but without the romantic element!

Thank you :-)

It's Ben Barnes (Prince Caspian) as Dorian Gray. (I'm not sure if it was released in the US but, if it was, I recommend it!) He's also No 21.

I don't think I know one person who's ever had an Acer laptop which didn't have issues....

Lovely icons. Dorian Grey - what a crap fillum, but what a pretty boy :)

Thank you!

I really liked the fillum, especially that terrible scene where he's come back to London, and everyone else is old...

He is, as you say, a very beautiful boy.
