*snerked from [livejournal.com profile] aurora_novarum because icon glee is love.

1. Reply to this post with 'Icons!', and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

I was walking around the Atlanta Underground with a friend I met through a Lord of the Rings community when we walked into a candy store and saw the gummy letters. Immediately I thought of ways of using them, so I bought enough to spell my name and handle (so double Ls, triple As, and double Ss). I came back to the place I was staying at (with a friend from college) and we had an impromptu photo session, using her platewear and my gummy letters. Fun was had by all, except her cats, who were unhappy not to have gummy goodness.

Who doesn't enjoy Daniel clad only in an SGC flag?? Wonderfully made by [livejournal.com profile] cleothemuse, I can't help but think that the question WWJD? would actually have been asked by one or more leaders in the SGC as Daniel (Daniel Jackson for those of you not of the Stargate fandom) was the conscience of the SGC.

This was the first really good picture I took, one I enlarged and framed as a piece of artwork. The flower itself was part of a mother's day bouquet and taken out in our front lawn. When I move into my new house, the framed picture will be hanged in my new dining room with two other really nice flower pictures I took after this one.

The original icon was by [livejournal.com profile] hsapiens as part of her absolutely amazing collection. The image of Daniel with the headache just exuded "this is all Jack's fault" so I just plopped in the words. I use this frequently, as many things are easily Jack's fault in the gate'verse.

Dragon Army was Ender's army in "Ender's Game" and "Ender's Shadow" for those of you not familiar with the works of Orson Scott Card. Ender, the boy strategical genius who leads his Jeesh through the final battles of the Third Invasion against the Formics, begins his military career at Battle School, geared to train children ages 5 through 14 in the basics of combat through the frequent battling of rival armies in "the game". Dragon Army went undefeated under Ender after years of bad luck and was disbanded after Ender left for Command School. Much like I wear a wonderful garnet and gold scarf for Gryffindor (Harry Potter) this icon is my Ender Saga equivalent. Made by [livejournal.com profile] one_third
