this post has a lot of feelings  
* Reply to this post with ICON ME! and I will pick five of your icons.
* Make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose.
* Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
* This will create a never ending cycle of icon glee :)

neverpretend chose:

M'kay. This? I have so many freaking feelings about. It is my most favouritest icon of them ever. It took me a while to try and put this into words without capslocking and flail so if that happens, you have been warned. When I first saw this I thought: 'huh, what a neat manip cos there's no way they'd be standing that close to each other in canon. Like, ever! Oh and lookit how the maker was able to create a believable shadow across Hermione's face. I LIKE. *save to computer & use promptly*' Then, a few months later, I saw GoF and totally freaking FLIPPED OUT that it was not a manip. Major noodle wrists ensued:

This. Scene. Just. GUH. I think it's not even a conscious thing that they did it, I think, but when Lucy approaches them Harry makes this move to PHYSICALLY put himself between the Malfoy's and Hermione to get her away from them, I can't even. GAH! KIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIDS! DO THEY EVEN KNOW THEY LOVE EACH OTHER THAT MUCH?! DO THEY?! Added to that, I really like the subtle radial blur on the edges of this because it encompasses them in their own little world (which I think happens A LOT between these two whether intentional or not) and the warm colours give me all kinds of Glósóli (by Sigur Rós here, you can has a copy) feelings. This song is possibly my ultimate theme for Harry/Hermione because it's all about waking from a horrible dream and there, in the dawning light, is this one man's warmth, the glowing sun. A sun that rises and infuses this man, in his bleakest moment, with hope and he realises it is not there off in the distance casting light into his darkness, but here, with him. At his side. And it gives me all kinds of 'so it could have gone that way' ~feelings and and and and... that awkward moment when a relationship between two fictional characters gives you a physical ache? Is this icon and song and moment and story and ship and guys, it totally makes me cry. Seriously. LYRICS.
Thank you to yam for gracing the internet with this brilliance.

JULIET. I entered the world of Lost through this woman. My first ep, was her first ep. My ship, was her ship. My love, was her love. Her loyalty, was my loyalty. Her survival, was my survival. Her complicated story of disaster and hope and struggle to find peace and a home made her an instant fave. A flawed heroine. A woman striving to live. And in this moment, you do. not. mess. with. her.

Bella is my favourite baddie, as you can tell by my Day 22 of the 30 Days of Potter meme. She is fucked. No other way to put that into words. For me, in many ways Bella is the Yin to the Yang that is Hermione. If you strip away all the crazy and deluded ideals that make up Bellatrix Lestrange she is a brilliant witch. She is inventive, driven, smart. She has a belief system ingrained as part her very essence. A belief system that you cannot sway her from. She likes breaking rules and makes no apologies for doing so if it furthers her belief and gets her what she needs/wants/desires. She is what Hermione could be if different choices were made. If Hermione was not innately good and righteous. I think that twistedness is represented in the angle used and how she seems to be coming out of the dark part of the icon. Gorgeous.

Aw. I love these two. I first saw CM when surfing and saw these two sweeping a house with efficiency and prettiness. Then there were snarky remarks about a whip as they searched a suspects closet and I was all: PARTNER!LOVE! Funny. Hot. Flirty. Sexy. Serious. Playful. Supportive. They hit all the marks and this icon kinda represents that. I also tend to like icons full of space. Plus, it's like a B+W photograph which was one of my fave subjects in school.

Juno. It's the shit eating smile she gives the lady in the office but taken out of context it is full of silent glee. I use it for both. Versatility. I likes.

oh. really? FEELINGS?! share them with me please, because I feel my feelings are somewhat... skewed? in a 'other people will never understand my love for this woman because it is SO FUCKED UP' way.

cm fic is mostly of the slash variety and that doesn't really do it for me. *shrug* i've found it hard to find stuff for my ships. *sigh*

Sorry I couldn't make this more diverse... I seem to be stuck. Kids.

i just really love helena and i think that she makes bellatrix so much fun. personally, i think bellatrix is fucking twisted as fuck. yes, woman is a psycho. neville should have killed her, not molly. so i guess my feelings come from what other ppl perceive of her in books?

hmm. but also. i've read these fics where she and sirius has a thing sort of going on. dark and twisted as fuck. as said, i am weird.

will do meme now. :)

i always compare how mcrory would've portrayed bella V hbc's. don't get me wrong, hbc as bella is perfection and i'd never ever change it, but i think hm would've given a more sinister/insidious twist to her, having all this brilliance and psychosis running as an undercurrent whereas hbc is full on with those themes being her main note and allowing that inventiveness that is bellatrix play second to the devotion and crazy.

i don't understand JKRs molly killing bella is some kind of feminist statement... just. no. it's not. in any way. i take issue with that. molly killing bella is just a woman being a mother not a woman fighting for the right thing. is there supposed to be some kind of 'love conquers all' message there? cos i think whoever it was that killed bellatrix would be doing it out of revenge more than love just because this woman has caused so many pain, you know? just. idek.

oh. well, seeing as how sirius AND bella are my faves from the black clan, rec? i don't mind that kind of fucked up weirdness. i find it intriguing.
