I picked up a fun icons meme from [personal profile] sara_tanaquil! I did this once before, but I wanted to try again - and happily five different icons were picked from the first time.

Meme rules:

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.


Behind the cut are the ones [personal profile] sara_tanaquil picked for me, with my comments!

a lot of babbling )

I could think of no entries for X and I don't have any for Z, either: as with the letter J, I know of titles beginning with those letters, but I haven't read any of them myself. Hence, this will be my final post.

My thanks to everyone who have stucked with me through this! If you have any thoughts about this entry or earlier ones, I'd be delighted to hear them. ♥

So there we are then - from 20th Century Boys to Yotsuba& (not a shabby pair of book-ends if I may say so), this is my manga alphabet at the moment. What about yours?

So! I got tagged - or rather, asked to be tagged - by [livejournal.com profile] scribe_protra a week or so back (*checks* uh, actually it was New Year's Eve - I'm even slower than I thought!) for a writing meme! This one is connected to user pics.

This is how the meme goes officially, though as you see below I didn't follow all of it:

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and write a drabble about (each of) 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.

Beside the icon glee, I think - though I could have this all wrong - that the point is to write something brief and fast without taking it too seriously. Unfortunately, I normally fail at brevity and quickness, so that failed, even though I cheated and asked [livejournal.com profile] scribe_protra to only pick four of my icons rather than six. And I wound up way over 100-word length for all of them - though I did hold on to the "not taking it too seriously" part. Anyway, it was still fun to do, and I'd love to pass it on in case anyone's interested.

If you do want to do this, please ask how many icons I should pick - since I only had four, I can hardly demand anyone else must write six!

Concrit is welcome as always - this is just for fun, but it's always good to get tips on wording, correction on typoes etc!

here we go )
