11:55 pm - In Soviet Russia, Icon Upload You
The fall season is upon us, and it's time for some cleaning. I have a good chunk of icon space left, but I always like having a good buffer zone so that I'm not constantly forced to kill my darlings to pick up new ones.

Please take a look at my icons.

I'm going to be getting rid of a few of them, mostly VM ones that I don't have much use for or never used much in the first place. Are there any icons you think I should definitely keep? Any icons you would suggest I lose to make room for better, stronger, faster ones? As I said, it's not so much an issue of space but an issue of the collection. I want to have a good set, with functional, pretty icons. Sometimes, you just want a change.

Now, more importantly: I need icons! Point me to your favorite icon posts for the shows you know I watch and love. Specific requests include the following:

I need a good Supernatural icon, one that sort of embodies the show. This would probably involve the boys and their car.

I need a good Friday Night Lights icon, similarly. I have no idea what this would involve.

I also wouldn't mind having One Good Icon from 30 Rock, Weeds, Entourage, Skins, Farscape, etc. Any show I have mentioned loving here. My problem is that I don't know exactly what I'm looking for, but if you're up to the challenge, maybe we can figure it out together.

I need some Doctor Who icons with Ten. I feel like I need some S2 and S3 icons.

It sure would be neat to have an Arrested Development icon that wasn't a crossover icon.

I can't have too many Avatar and Office icons. Those are shows where I kind of covet an icon for every character, even though that would fill up my space too fast. More than one Dexter icon might work as well. As for Heroes, it might be better to grab stuff from the new season. Although I sadly have no icons of Claire or Mr. Bennet.

I need an icon for laughter. I need an icon for sort of rolling my eyes. I need an icon for OMG reactions. I possibly need an icon that more clearly says, "Oh, for fuck's sake, fandom." I need an icon for...various other situations I might find myself in on LJ.

Help meeeeee! Give me links! Recommend me icons! I want my icon collection to reach a whole new level of awesome.

You could always steal from my icons - I know there will be a bunch that you don't want (wrestling and the like), or already have, but I have a couple of good Heroes and Doctor Who icons that might interest you.

But now, I need to find some good Martha icons, since she is my current TV Girlfriend.

Stealing other people's icons is a way of life.

Supernatural choices. She made this one which is my most used, actually. And then there are text options on it in that post, as well.

As far as Doctor Who goes, I really like phanviola_icons and then also seeingyouaround is pretty bitchen (she has some pretty nifty Supernatural icons, of the non OMGSAMMY'SHOT variety, too). And yeah, I should know more since I go through icons like mad, but...yeah.

Heeee.

On a COMPLETELY unrelated note, your seeming like for "Misery Business" is incredibly awesome faced.

It is not seeming! I love it! Glad someone else caught that!

Thanks for the icon recs. I think I recall seeing a Ten icon that read "Lonely God." Have you seen that one? Because that's a really good one for Ten.

I'm impressed by your level of icon specificity. Me, I just use bugs for every mood.

If you want X-Files icons, I recommend checking foxestacado's account--she's embarked on a quest to icon every episode. She also has some amazing House and Harry Potter icons if you're into that.

Haha, this totally sounds like myself. I get slightly OCD about my icons reflecting my EXACT response. And this can get complicated because GASP there are DIFFERENT TYPES of laughter and OMG reactions! Anyway, feel free to search my icons. Before they get ripped down by LJ in the next few days in protest about the lack of a new check. Needy LJ.

That's why you don't want redundancy! You can have different types representing different fandoms, thus taking care of token appearances and appropriate emotion.

I did look at your icons. You have some nice SPN and FNL ones. There is one SPN icon that I thought you had, but you don't. I think it might be the one I want. It's a side shot of the Impala, and the boys are standing by it, about to get into it. It's sunset. It's a very pretty icon, but I don't remember who made it and/or has it.

For FNL, I like this one.
FNL

And, these are my faves for fandom nonsense.
fandom concpiracy

mockery

victim complex

fandom whining

Feel free to take any of them.

Heeeee to that last fandom one. I do like that FNL one, but I was actually thinking of putting a disclaimer that I don't want "Clear eyes..." icons, I guess because there are probably fifty billion of them. Also because I was a little disappointed in its actual use on the show after seeing the phrase around so much. Although...I do really like that one. Hm.

Thanks for the recs!

The obvious: You obviously don't need 2 "Cow of Pain" icons, or 2 icons of Alona Tal's undying love for you.

I'd have to defriend you if you got rid of that Serenity icon or the dancing Mal one.

abyssinia has some cool Supernatural icons.

Oh, and happy belated birthday. I worked long hours this week, so I missed it. :(

Actually, three! And I don't know which to get rid of. Because they're not interchangeable; I use them each for different reasons. I suppose the one I'm using now is the most dispensable, even though I enjoy it.

2 icons of Alona Tal's undying love for you.
Yeah, those are both going, actually.

chezzy_1 has some cool Supernatural icons.
Ah, she does, thanks. There's one in there that I would like more if it didn't have tiny text and random orange spots. Dammit.

Oh, and happy belated birthday.
Thanks!

Well, I have a shitload of Skins icons, but MAYBE THEY'RE NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU, SUNIL.

I don't have any SPN or Office icons, but I want some.

I never made a post, because I've apparently become shockingly lazy. I'll email you a zip file.
