Bunny: Companion Mycroft (Sherlock/Doctor Who)

This is the gem that made me write up my bunny post. It's more of a summary, but it's made of win. At least I think so :)

Mycroft Holmes always wanted to meet the Doctor – someone to match his wits to. He never expected him to be even more infuriating and into running than Sherlock was. Not to mention the experiments!

Bunnies!!

So, I'm currently typing up a huge amount of stories I have on paper. My general "type up" word file where everything goes into in the beginning went from 30 pages to 110 pages... and it's just a small amount of stories typed up. Well, stories is the wrong word as their more beginnings and vague plotting.

Anyway, 110 word pages take too long for me to load and so I'm going through the file and moving those snippets either to their own files or into fandom/crossover "idea" files. And there are some gems. Some very sweet short prompts, summaries or thoughts. At least I think so. And I think it needs sharing.

I've also contemplated doing some kind of collection of unfinished stories for various fandoms (most of all Harry Potter) as I've seen it done by other authors and I really love reading those snippets even if it can be a huge bummer to know that it's very unlikely to be continued.

As I prepared to post one of those gems, I realised I was typing a lot of explanation to it and figured I'd make this a post of its own to share my rules on those bunnies. :)

Bunny Rules:
• Do with it what you want :)
• If anything gets published, a link back would be nice though. It's very likely that I'll want to read stories for any bunnies that I post
• If it's a more detailed bunny and/or contains text passages that you incorporate: please credit me

(Also, if you want to see more "bunnies", let me know. There's absolutely )

On Character Bashing

Well, I've been meaning to write an essay on this topic for a while and while I wouldn't call this an essay yet (it's more of a semi structured rambling), I figured I might as well post it as it contains most of my thoughts.

The topic at hand has been at large in fandom for ages: Character Bashing.

My thoughts on Character Bashing )

What do you think of character bashing? Is it all bad? Or can you also see some good in it, if done right?

Photobucket update

I've officially deleted my icons from Photobucket. Aside from one folder with iconbattle images, I've deleted all folders/images. And that last folder will go as soon as I downloaded those images (for reference purposes for myself) and then I'll delete my entire Photobucket account.

I've uploaded several fandoms already to nickpic.host and I'll keep going through them. I'm not uploading all of my old icons. Some just aren't up to par. I'll keep them on my hard drive to remember how far I've come, but I won't reupload them.

Moving to a new site also has the advantage of being able to rethink my folder structure. So far I've kept the folders private unless you've got a link - and added the link to my icon masterlist, but as I figure out the site more I'm coming to realise that it might be easier to just make them all public.

Icon Masterlist

So, I've found another host for my icons. I hope it's going to be their home for years to come!

As I don't intend to go back and fix all of the broken links (I've re-uploaded 10,000+ icons and that's not all of the ones I had originally posted!), I decided to put up this master post. It will link to the specific icon folders. Should I ever create new icons (for new fandoms) I will update this list as needed.

I've also uploaded 500+ award/particpation banners for contests I had joined throughout the years.

general stuff. )

Icons and other art

So, Photobucket has stopped permitting to link to the images from other sites. For now I still see my icons on several posts, but not on others. I guess this might simply be down with what might or might not be cashed (or whatever).

I checked out how much they want for that feature and considering that I haven't opened Photoshop in over a year - I'm not paying the 40/month or even the discounted 400$/year they want.

The icons should still be accessible/visible when you go directly to Photobucket. Click here for my Photobucket library

So, for the past week, I've been considering what else to do. Leave all the broken links as they are? Make a masterlist post with links to the fandom folders (on Photobucket or a different site)?

I've looked at using the space available here on dreamwidth for usage, but as far as I can see it doesn't offer a folder structure. Sign up for a different image hosting site? I'm not sure if I want to go around and compare them all.

That's when I remembered my trusty old Picasa 3 that I use to view (and to some extend manage) images on my computer. It doesn have an online storage that I previously used to share images with my family (vacations, new flats, etc) where I had too many to simply send per mail. I'm not sure if there are any limits, but I know I can use folders. Uploading would also be pretty easy considering that I can use the Picasa 3 for it.

Before I do that though, I will sort my icons a bit. I'm considering deleting some old icons I made that I can't find anything good with (I've spotted some of my first ones that at least were very creative, if not necessarily perfect, but others are *shudders*). On the other hand, they show how far I've come. For now, I'm just moving them to a folder called "old". Where the folder already existed I had simply named it "jpg" as that was the format I used for my first icons until it was pointed out that .png was the better format.
I think it's a very diplomatic name (especially as I moved some of the "newer" icons in there as well - "newer" meaning they're already png files)

No matter what happens, I won't go back to fix the links. That'll just be too much work.

Icons #79: 22 Faramir + 22 Agents of SHIELD (Season 1) icons

Here's the last mirroring icon post coming from LJ :) Again with the original notes :) The Faramir icons are from November and the Agents of SHIELD ones are from this month :D


Here's the last set of 20in20 icons for this month. After being undecided about who I wanted to claim for [community profile] lotr20in20 and being tired of picking the same characters over and over again, I decided to go with a character I probably haven't made any icons (specifically) for before so far: Faramir.

I really love how some of the icons turned out, but overall, I feel a bit let down (as I do with most icons I've posted in the past couple of months - if not longer). I used to be so creative even if it didn't always turn out looking good. I learned along the way. However, I feel as if I'm stuck doing the same methods/colourings over and over again without progressing. It doesn't help that I tend to prefer simpler icons and I do like the results of my tried and tested "recipes". I guess it's hard to combine "hating" the process while still loving the result.
It probably doesn't help that outside of the contests I mod, I haven't looked at other icons at all

But another moping, on to the icons :)

Icons #76: 46 Doctor Who icons

Another post in a bid to catch up with mirroring them. These two sets were made in September & October for [livejournal.com profile] doctorwho20in20. I kept any original comments in here :)

Here's a general Doctor Who set made in honour of round 60 @ [livejournal.com profile] doctorwho20in20. There might be an Aragorn set tomorrow if I ignore the extension I set for today, but with only 1 set submitted to [community profile] lotr20in20 so far... I'll have to think about that. Especially since I don't put out the icons as quick as I used to (and boy do I remember doing 3 20in20 sets in one (long) evening.

On the other hand, searching for images is what takes me the longest and I really need a new image viewing software since this one is utter rubbish and it doesn't help that it's importing tons of screencaps while I'm trying to search for something...

I've already mentally said goodbye to the general round @ [livejournal.com profile] season20in20 :(

Where did September go this month? Where did the last 9 months disappear to? I swear it was just January!

Icons #75: 51 Doctor Who & Torchwood icons

This post is originally from the end of August.

Since I recently obsessed over Jack again, I ended up claiming Season 1 of Doctor Who for round 59 @ [livejournal.com profile] season20in20 and Jack for round 59 @ [livejournal.com profile] doctorwho20in20.

I finished the Doctor Who icons on the 18th and figured I wouldn't need that long for Jack... I guess I forgot how horridly dark those Torchwood Screencaps could be as I struggled to find good ones. I think I eventually ended up with a pretty good selection :)

Icons #69: 34 Marvel Cinematic Universe/Agent of SHIELD icons

Like the previous post, most of these were made last year before I put the community [insanejournal.com profile] dailyicons on hiatus until recently.

Original Note:
I felt like making some more Marvel icons and claimed the Marvel Cinematic Universe (and included Agents of SHIELD). Somehow I just never posted this table - but things are going agonisingly slow in making any kind of icons for dailyicons anyway.

Icons #68: 57 Vampire Fandom icons

Despite my best intentions while claiming it, the fandoms aren't as diverse as I had intended. As a matter of fact: most of these icons are for Being Human (UK) and Interview with a Vampire. I think the only icon not from those two is for Sanctuary.

Original Note:
Having finished my last two claims it's once again time to pick a new claim. Since I'm currently dabbling in vampire fandoms - I've watched part of the first season of Vampire Diaries and the first episode of the Originals on top of kinda avoiding finishing Being Human season 2 - I figured I'd use that for my claim. I didn't want to limit myself to just tv shows though (somewhere in my mind there are vampire movies hiding aside from Interview with a Vampire) and I didn't want to icon *just* vampires.

As such I defined my claim of 50 icons as "vampire movies & tv shows" :)
