Icons and other procrastination  
The revision is going as revision does, which is to say, it isn't.  The procrastination, on the other hand, I think I could quite easily pass an exam in.

On the writing front I've finally got a plot outline for my Weasley fest story, the post-DH Lavender Brown story is almost ready for a beta, there's a story where Rita and Luna keep meeting and I keep adding little scenes to various other pieces, including a Firefly fic featuring Wash and a multi-fandom fic set in the Sandman verse.

Thanks to thesteppyone  I've also made a Doctor Who trailer, which you should all try because that was fun.

And I have been playing with icons on and off, mostly on Picnik because I haven't yet had time to sit down and work out how to use Adope photoshop properly yet, although thank you very much again msmoocow  and I will have fun with that when the exams are out of the way!

So, a mixed collection of 65 icons, almost all text, on writing, quotes about  writing and lj post tags, like 'meme' or 'recs'.

Oh! *bounces* If only I had the icon space, I'd take so many of these... Does the last one really say Sugar-fey or is it one of those icons that says the name of whoever looks at it? Either way, I love it. Damn my lack of icon space. Whenever I want an icon I have to get rid of one of my current icons, and I love them all...

I'm glad you think they're shiny. :o)

YES, the last one says "bred by sugar-fey" because they are. *grins* It'll still be here when you get bored of the icons you have now, if you like it that much. I haven't saved it to my icon collection, because I'm still in love with the Hufflepuff Bunny Theory, although I was tempted to since i'm sure i'd get lots of wear out of it!!!

Squeeeeeeee! Now I'm flattered deep in my evil, bunny breeder soul. I want that icon so badly, but I just got a bunch of new icons and they're all so pretty... Oh well. When I get bored of them, like you said.

As you can see, I sacrificed an older icon. ;) As if I was going to pass this one up!
inkvoices: hp:puff_bunnytheoryinkvoices on May 13th, 2008 11:44 pm (UTC)
Yes, you evil bunny breeder, you! *grins*

Oh, I like so many of these! Will likely take some of the "recs" ones for IJ, thanks!
inkvoicesinkvoices on May 12th, 2008 11:16 pm (UTC)
Glad you like them! I decided I wanted some useful type icons saying 'meme' and 'recs' and this is me 'rambling' on about nothing, so I made some. Nice to see they'll be useful for other people too :o)
shygryf: bones-boothshygryf on May 14th, 2008 08:38 pm (UTC)
oh! i have been questing for a meme iconand had given up when thesteppyone pointed me your way!

have taken 31 and will credit!
inkvoicesinkvoices on May 17th, 2008 09:08 pm (UTC)
I made these because I wanted a 'meme' icon and couldn't find any lol. Glad they'll come in handy for you too! :o)

PS Your Bones icon? Is made of win. I've just finished watching season 2...and now I really want to watch the rest if that's what's coming! *grins*
