1. Reply to this post, 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.

When I bought a bike (it was in October 2011), I started looking for a bike icon, but couldn't find a good one anywhere. And then I found this beautiful photo via Google:



Sadly, I don't know who's the author of this photo and where it's from, but I liked the picture, and the girl happened to wear shoes similar to the ones I've got (one mine are on much higher heels, and I don't wear them when I go biking :)), so I decided to make an icon out of this photo.

Oh, and about my bike: it's an Author Quanta, it's very beautiful and gracious, and yes, it's snowy-white :)

I work from home as a linguist and translator, and use lots of software in my work, to say nothing of my two faithful friends and helpers - Chip, my laptop, and Dale, my netbook :) And I wouldn't survive without coffee, or at least strong black tea, so there's always a cup of tea of coffee on my table.

The icon was made by an LJ friend of mine. She makes beautiful icons, you can see them all here.

I used to be an avid Harry Potter fan from 2006 to 2009, I even wrote a handful of fanfiction (mostly about the Order of the Phoenix), and, although I'm no longer an active fan, I still reserve the right to post something HP-related.

As for the movies, I liked the first three, and as for the other five, I couldn't even re-watch them once. This picture of a happy little Harry with Hedwig is one of my most favourite stills from the films, so I chose it as a base for an HP icon.

This icon is made by the wonderful [profile] iconsbycurtana, you can find her icons here. The text appearing in the icon is a poem from Madeleine L'Engle's novel A Swiftly Tilting Planet - I haven't read it yet, but I loved the poem. Curtana actually skipped one of the lines when she made the icon, so here's the unabridged version:

At Tara in this fateful hour,
I place all Heaven with its power,
And the sun with its brightness,
And the snow with its whiteness,
And the fire with all the strength it hath,
And the lightning with its rapid wrath,
And the wind with its swiftness along its path,
And the sea with its deepness,
And the rocks with their steepness,
And the Earth with its starkness
All these I place
By God's almighty help and grace
Between myself and the powers of darkness.

It's a photo of actress Bridget Regan. So far I've only seen her on a single episode of Person of Interest, but she reminded me strongly of one of my own characters in the Star Wars universe - a red-haired and blue-eyed Rebel Alliance leader :) But the reason why I chose this picture was that I wanted a default icon which would be neutral and suitable for any comment or post regardless of their subject and tone, and that seemed to be a good choice.

Oh wow, I didn't realize that was L'Engle. A Wrinkle in Time is one of my favorite books, but I don't remember what else of hers I read.

Also I love the Harry Potter movies, especially the first two :) I never read the books though.

kawehilani: My absolutely favourite SW icon (Default)
Athena
Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't comin' back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me
There's no place I can be
Since I found Serenity
But you can't take the sky from me...
