icon meme time...  
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.

strangevisitor7 asked about these:


I love Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and I wanted a cheeky icon to threaten with, and what's more threatening than Vogon poetry? *grin* (Course if you've never read/seen H2G2 then that doesn't make it any clearer, but then if you've never read it you've never lived).


This is the result of a meme to make an icon based on personality. jinxed_wood seemed to think it accurately represents me. Can't think why. *grin* I love this icon so much, although I don't use it nearly enough.


Five was my first Doctor, and I love the caption and all of the fab icons by red_scharlach In fact I had a hard time narrowing down exactly which ones to use! For those not familiar with Britglish, 'It's not cricket' means not fair, not playing by the rules.


I made this one specifically for my fic Spiking Torchwood (I swear I will write more one day, but the bunnies keep leading me in other directions!). It's based on a great manip by fanbot and I love the possibilities of John Hart being Spike, and moreover what might happen if they met (other than the universe imploding of course).


Death loves cats, and I love Death, so what better than an icon of Death stroking a cat? Except maybe Death on Binky.

Re: Replying:).
It's such a great pic, it's an illustration from The Last Hero (I think). It's where I got my Death of Rats and Librarian ones from too.

Wanna play?

Love that last one. I have read Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, so I get the Vogon poetry one.

Which always makes me wonder what Dalek poetry would sound like.

Unfortunately, I don't have many icons. Just the one actually.

but it's such a pretty one :)

I recommend sticking to one and not becoming a complete icon junkie like me!

Hmm, would Daleks write poetry though? At least Vogons have souls and emotions, no matter how dull and unoriginal they might be. Daleks don't have either. Maybe something like this:

I wandered lonely as a cloud
Because I'd exterminated the planet
All hail the Dalek race!
All hail the Daleks!

Ha! Great poem... lol!

I was thinking along the lines of both Daleks and Vogons both being Evil Overlord-ish types. And Vogons write horrible poetry, so how horribly bad kind of poetry would Evil World Take-over-age Daleks write?

I think you really answered the question. lol!

Me please! :D

As to putting images in comments

You usually set it up as: < img src =" " >

keep the space bettween the 'g' and 's', but everything else, pull back one space to complete the html tag. And then in between the " " you input the html code of the img.

You can usually get this by right clicking the icon, going down to properties and highlighting the Address, copying and then pasting it in between the " ".

I hope that makes sense. If not, then I hope the Wash confusion icon comforts you.

Both are most helpful *grin*

Okay, so here we go:

It worked! *whoop*

And I'd just like to add love for your Monkees icons. Isn't so awful about Pete? He's so lovely, it's not fair.
