Did not do everyone, mostly because of a lack of energy and/or inspiration. Maybe someday.
( 51 icons, mostly crossover )
NEXT ROUND. After the killer matchups last round, I think this one should be much easier, for the most part. I think. Remember: vote for the ones you think will win, not just the ones you like best!
( WILL THE REAL SLIM SHADY PLEASE STAND UP )
AND NOW: THE MATCHUPS.
...and I'm not providing Wikipedia links this year, I'm sorry. Or summaries, thus far, though that may change when we get down to fewer rounds.
I encourage everyone to vote! And to vote not just for who you like more but for who would actually win, if at all possible. P.S.: these fights are to the death, so just be aware that they're not just leaving. Although you can think that way if it makes you feel better.
Without further ado:
( THE PARTY DON'T STARK TILL I WALK IN )
And here we go with the faceoffs, generated by the randomizer (SO DON'T BLAME ME)
LET THE GAMES BEGIN. CAMPAIGNING IS WELCOME. AND ENCOURAGED.
P.S. that cut text was a typo. I left it in. Also contrary to popular belief, I do have things to do? I'm just...not doing them.
On the other hand, then there are days like yesterday, where we sit in a plane for an hour and a half only to have to change planes because of a lightbulb (!) and consequently depart two hours behind schedule. And that is why all the things I wanted to have done before the new year are…not done before the new year.
And I am home! First things first, I suppose - a (somewhat belated) VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you on my flist, and I hope this year is much better than last, no matter how your last year was. In other words, exactly what all you lovely people deserve.
Are you ready for this devastatingly longass meme? (First of...oh, three, actually.)

Other notes: Yuletide was overall disappointing in terms of finding stories I really wanted to read, but I have a few recs that I'll post when I'm not deluging the place with memes and a half, and:
How to Lose Friends and Influence People | for sargent_snarky | Silmarillion | Curufin doesn't know what to do with his son half the time.
Beginnings | for sakru909 | Death Note | The boy, his social workers said, was...peculiar.
Milo's Tollbooth | for firebluespinel | The Phantom Tollbooth | Milo returns.
For those of you I still owe presents - those will also be up, as soon as possible! (And to those watching my fic journal...there's going to be a bit of a deluge in the next couple days. I'm terribly sorry. >>
I have also realized that I should make a list of the fic I've written that's inspired by other fic. Because there are a few.
Assorted things of all kinds in here. A couple (okay, two) Jerk/Bitch icons, a bunch of the Keep Calm parody things that I just discovered because I am always late on the bandwagon, some Doctor Who, some Supernatural, some other things entirely.

( a fair amount of silliness here lies. please forgive me. )
Also my computer is still freezy and stupid-like-ass and it's making me unreasonably, ridiculously cranky. Awesome.
So one of my favorite parts of Avatar: the Last Airbender is the facial expressions of the characters. They are so fantastically exaggerated in hilarious ways, but not all the time for everything - there are just certain moments where expressions on faces are so priceless that words are hardly even needed. Here's some picspam of some of my favorite season one facial expression moments. Not all that much to say here.
( onward! image heavy )
(Yes, other LJ friends, this does mean you get a doublepost. :D)

Paper Planes - MIA by thedeadparrot (DW). Toph! The sync is awesome, and while I'd never have thought of this song for Toph it actually works pretty well.
Life's Gonna Suck - Denis Leary by CaramellNeko. Just...ridiculous. I loled.
Viva La Vida - Coldplay by rinir10010. Okay, I imagine it's the most overly fanvidded song ever, but I like this one! And it fits so many characters very nicely. And this one is well put together, I think; I like the way it was executed.
You Know My Name - Chris Cornell by Kagatoamv. Again, well put together, with a different tone.
Thnks fr th Mmrs - Fall Out Boy by 3lgoonishive. Intense!!! A little more frenetic in terms of cutting than perhaps I would prefer, but it fits both song and series, so it works. Oh, it works.
I Can't Decide - Scissor Sisters by agentthreeseven. The Master and this song may have been one of my favorite parts of the end of Series Three. And someone did me a service of setting all the best Master scenes to this song. Therefore.
Anyone on my flist have any recommendations?
(I know for said meme I got Adorkable, which probably works fairly well, olololol.)
P.S. How did I not know that this existed? GUYS THIS IS LIKE. MY LIFE. OR AT LEAST MY KINKS. L-look awwww.
And now, brought to you by my love of picspam and Avatar:
Fair warning that I A) adore Zuko to ridiculous degree, he's in here a lot and B) I...have no idea what was going to go here. ONWARD.
( image heavy. also babble heavy. And spoiler heavy, to those it matters to. )
AND NOW BACK TO WHAT I WAS DOING. NAMELY: NOTHING. :D
In other arenas, it is time for linkspam!
- Raptors: scary dinosaurs, or the scariest dinosaurs - A good (fantastic) analysis of the raptor v. T-Rex argument. (Guess who wins.)
- Lelouch tells it like it is.
- Rufftoon @ deviantart - hilarious Avatar comics; see here.
- And finally, this.
Sir, I salute you.
There will be picspammy later.

+1 L/Light graphic

Day #8 - Character you look like the most
Idk, actually. The thing about having short, nondescript colored hair is that it's hard to pick a character who really looks like you. Maybe Light, actually; I might be able to cosplay as him without too much effort, is the way I think of it. Other than that...I honestly do not know. >.> Lame answer is lame.
Day #8 - Your favorite villain
Scar, obviously. Do I really need to explain? He's charismatic and ambitious and terrible and he's voiced by Jeremy fucking Irons. That is all, really. I don't think I know anyone who dislikes Scar. ...of course, someone's going to come and prove me wrong, but shhh. Although...Frollo is also a fantastic villain. And so deliciously creepy. "Hellfire" is, easily, the best villain song Disney has ever made ever. ...oh wait, that's a later answer, isn't it?
( those parts to come: everyfandom )
( those parts to come: Disney )
In conclusion, the Code Geass soundtrack is awesome.
