Oh noes! Icon meme!

secondalto said her favorite of my icons is this one, of Giles with flaming baseball bat in "Passion". It's by marina_angel_.

Reply here and I'll tell you which one of your icons is my favorite and why. Mostly this is an excuse to stare at people's icons.

*waves* I'll play.

That Passion one is mighty nice. *admires*
Hmm! Many fine icons there, but I think my favorite is Laughing Tony by Glim:

I like that it's b&w, that it has no text, and that it has that ragged photo-print sort of border. (Looks a bit like a medium format print, which is always cool.) Plus, ASH is a handsome devil, and I believe giggling is his natural state.
I love these two a lot:

But I think my favorite is this one:

For all three it's the coloring that attracts me. Desaturation and restricted palettes. And I love the glowing light on the third, the way his hair shines.
This one of Tinker rocks:

And several of WickedFox's are ones I use as well! But I think I like this one of Dawn by dragonydreams:

It's the color that catches my attention: all that glowing honey-brown. And it's a nice portrait of her.
Ooh, a tough one. You've contributed many of the icons I use, and some of those are my very favorites. I'm partial to Watcher Kink:
Watcher Kink

For the concept & the b&w execution. The type is also good (lots of contrasts: red big mixed case, white smaller all caps). But I think my favorite is Buffy Defiant, for sheer drama:
Buffy defiant
Ooh, the Avengers album cover is neat:

And so is the Deepest Deep icon (more with me liking the ones with restricted color palettes):
Deepest Deep

But I think Ripper Watching is my favorite, for the contrast of the figure against the background, bursting out of the implied frame:
Ripper, watching

This meme is my favoritest ever, I think. I have looked at many fine icons this afternoon, and avoided much work!
First I want to call out these two:

When we were very youngGive him a scone

When we were very young, we wore absurd dresses and had longish hair and had secret threeway trysts in the library. And the second one captures an aspect of the early Buffy-Giles relationship that I love. The look on her face is wonderful. But this is my favorite:


Giles in the mode I love best (early seasons librarian), lovely tone, cropping and lighting that show off his angular face and the line of his jaw. Lord, but that's a handsome man.
Hey, hey. Replying here.

Of your icons, your favourite is mine too. That is one of the, if not the, most kick-ass moments in the entire series. I *heart* the flaming baseball bat.
And the nod goes to redshirt Giles!

Though the icon you used for your comment (close-cropped Anya) is mighty fine as well!
Three stood out for me:
angry puppet Wash eyebrow Green sweater head-tilt

Oh, man, that Wash eyebrow! Yum! But the nod goes to an icon I also use that I love ridiculously: solemn green sloppy-sweater head-tilt Giles, by katekat1010.
Never too late! I'm a big fan of your Trek icons (as you know from the 5 guilts meme, am a big pushover for original Trek). But I think the two icons of yours I like best are these two. Both black and white.

I think the nod goes to Hermione. I like the original photo of her, and I like what you've done with the frame. I don't often go for the heavy framing icons, but maybe it's the angle that makes this one work for me? Nifty, I think.
I am fond of Evil Giraffe (or "evil urge-affe" as Mr P & I would said in private language):
Evil Giraffe

And Gromit with a rolling pin is a lovely image that communicates an important sentiment:

But my favorite is Darcy stomping:
stomp stomp stomp

Perfect marriage of text and image. I love that the stomp-stomp-stomp scrolls off on both sides, implying ongoing stompage and not some mere single foot-stamp.

(I also like your Brian icon and the posts you associate with it.)
Okay, lots of neato ones by eyesthatslay there, including "that was quite uncalled for". But I'm going to yield to my own OTP urgings and go with this one:

That's one of my favorite little moments between them, and Buffy comforting Giles is a bit of a bulletproof kink of mine. She looks so cute, too.
