Giles/Spike

One can never have too many icon slots, I've found.

Well hey! It's my second anniversary here on LJ! That means the second anniversary of my decision to get involved in Buffy fandom. Not quite the second anniversary of my decision to start writing fanfiction-- that would be in April, according to the file creation date.

I marked this occasion by uploading some new icons. Because yay, more icon slots!

Already today I have done some woodworking, preceded by time spent cleaning up after Mr Pedia's aborted rail gun project, which left the garage looking as if... as if somebody's rail gun project had exploded in it. I took one look at the coils of magnet wire and said, "You were building a rail gun, weren't you," at which he looked abashed. He redeemed himself, however, by cleverly tying knots in rope so that my wood object could be hung in mid-air while I rubbed tung oil into it. Woot. Eagle Scouts come in handy every now and then. I think I'll keep mine, despite his epic inability to put tools away after using them.

Okay, now I go write Giles/Xander smut involving a desk chair. Wish them luck!

Happy LJVersary! So pleased to know you!
Also, I'm trying to remember...was it you who wrote the brilliant essay about Dead Man's Party that I want to steal quote? Or maybe it was kivrin, but I think it was you.

You woodwork? That's cool.
And we're glad to have you!

More icons are always good. I checked yours out--and, gee, do you like Giles or something? ;)
Happy Anniversary! (So you were only out here about 7 months before I came out here? Wow. Thought it was more than that. Doubtless because you're so prolific. And cool.)

Many happy returns on the day.

(For some reason, this is my only Buffyverse icon.)
Thank you! And yeah, I did not arrive here much sooner than you did. I'm sort of amazed, then I look back, at how quickly I met people and started having conversations. Fandom is a friendly place.
Happy LJ-aversary!

Do you really get more icons for being on LJ for a year or two? Like, birthday presents?
You do! Loyalty rewards or something like that. I've filled my new slots with icons to use in the h/c ficathon posts. Heh.
I highly recommend a chair without wheels. Not that's I'm speaking from personal experience or anything.
Why on earth would anyone want to build a rail gun? I had to look it up. Never heard of such as I am living inside of a sensory deprivation box.

I thought you joined lj in Dec. Nice icons, btw. I will never ever learn how to add new ones on this Mac. I'll have to go back on my IBM, snag them, and then add them to journal. This is completely ludicrous, but I fear there is nothing that can be done about my continuing ineptitude. Instructions are useless. People try to help by saying things like "right click". I don't have a right click anymore. Damn it, Jim. I'm a housewife, not a brain surgeon.
I... the question is, who wouldn't want to build a rail gun? You can destroy fruit! Make one with your kids!

To save icons to my Mac, I just click on them and drag them out of the browser to the desktop. Or to a folder. Or I hold down the control key and click on the image to get a contextual menu of things I can do with it.
