For those of you who made fic requests recently, I haven't forgotten. When I opened requests, I hadn't had a migraine in like 2 months, figured it was safe. Then I got hit with one that isn't going away. I've signed up for some summer writing challenges, so the requests may get on back burner for a little while, but I know who you are and what you've requested. Sorry about this!

Here's the deal. I signed up for the 100 Things blog challenge. My topic is 100 Things I Learned Writing Fanfiction.

One of my subjects will be "Take Fic Requests." I haven't taken any in like 3 years because of my health problems, and it occurred to me that I would like to have some more current material to point to in that post.

So. If you give me 1 word prompt, one subject (fandom, character, couple, group, or premise), and one animal, I will write you one fic.

There are no conditions except I don't do incest and I don't write anything above a moderate R. Oh, and you know. Try to pick a fandom I know something about. I reserve the right to take an opt-out if you ask for a subject I've never written or am not familiar with, but I'll give you another request.

Posting this for [livejournal.com profile] kj_svala. If anyone wants further details or anything, please comment. It uses someone else's tut as a base point, so I don't want to go through a full tutorial here.

The coloring on my DA icons:

Each one is different depending on the icon, and I don't remember all the exact settings. Basically, with any coloring technique it's not exact, you have to play with it to find what works best for the lighting and whatever on the original cap.

This is what I started with as a guide. I love this tutorial, use it on 60-75 % of my icons. The DA caps come out too red and/or over saturated, so lower the red saturation level or, if that doesn't work, try turning down the opacity on the saturation later. Then, pretty much all I did was increase the opacity on the blue overlay layer (how much depends on the icon) add a burn layer of one or more of these:

#EFECDB

#FFFFC0

or

#8B7DBB

The burn layers are basically there to bring out the existing colors and add something a little different. The opacity and number of them is different depending on the icon.

Finally, if it's a bit too dark or yellow, a screen layer on top on a medium to low opacity

Okay. Here is the deal. Recently I made a claim on [livejournal.com profile] iconic_ships for my Star Wars OTP, Obidala. I also have a fair number of leftover Obidala and/or Obi-Wan variations from recent challenges. It all got mixed together in a folder and I didn't realize it until after I had uploaded the whole mess to PB using Flock. I am not going to sit here and try to figure out which are which. SO. Any of these which look familiar to you are familiar because they are variations of challenge icons, NOT previously posted icons.

This is post #2. 130 icons.

Also. Vid icons and a set of Star Wars bases, plus commentary on this set of icons tomorrow. Feel free to ignore said commentary.

--edit--

Okay, I forgot some stuff. I'm just throwing them on the bottom. One request, some claim icon variations, and a few icons from Teal'c and Vala's new Star Wars fic, ghost written by me and vidded (eventually) by [livejournal.com profile] aruna7. If you don't know who Teal'c and Vala are or why they're writing a SW fic, you probably don't want to.



I love you. Always Have. Since Tatooine. )

Okay. I've been up since 4AM. Have not written a single word. Oh. Well, except for this paragraph. I did doze off at one point and have a dream about Obi being on the ship from Flight of the Navigator. Does anyone else remember that movie?

Writing (anything) feels like a huge ordeal today. I sit here with this sense of impending doom because I have not written. That of course compounds the problem. Even my fanfic series'. We know where One Path is going now, but the scene I thought up in bed this morning has fled. It's scaring me, not so much because I don't know where it's going but because there's so much behind us and yet so much still to come. I still can't break through my block on Beyond Breaking and this saddens me. Games bugs me because I really don't know what it wants to do, and Jack's proposal ALWAYS intimidates me every time I've tried to write one. Worked really well in RH, but I have to do something different here.

So, I'm throwing open the doors here. Comment to this post and give me one character, or a ship, and up to three words. One of them must be a color. I'll write you a ficlet.

Guidelines

-I mainly fic in SG/SW fandoms these days, but I'll try something else if I'm comfortable enough with the characters.

-I have a claim on Daniel Jackson over at [livejournal.com profile] fic101. Ask for him and you have priority.

-Obidala is welcome. A/P will get you shot.

-Keep in mind, I don't write slash or NC-17.

-Those familiar with my original work or RP characters may request something from there.

-Aruna, no commenting fifteen times.

Next, I have some more requests. You're My Best Christmas Gift is a Mulder/Scully vid that [livejournal.com profile] aruna7 did this past Christmas season. She asked me for some icons, so here they are. Please credit her work on the vid if you use these. Thanks. Also, these are my very first XF icons, so hope you guys like 'em.



Merry Christmas! )

I have some requests and gifts to post today, then I'm gonna see about a One Path chapter. Yes, you can send flowers and chocolate in appreciation. ;) I'll start with these. I literally got a request for a wallpaper of "Half Naked Ares". Soooooooooooooooo...
Various sizes of things because I know everyone doesn't have a gargantuan monitor, including just a random fanart sized version of Death By Ares because PB resized it before I realized I'd forgotten to change settings. _-Edit--Okay, they got resized AGAIN. I'll have to reupload the bigger ones. AGAIN. *headdesk* Sorry, Aruna.



All hail... )

__EDIT__

OKAY. I FINALLY got the large sized walls uploaded to imageshack. Grr. *smacks and smacks and smacks*

Got inspired to do some text icons because of a request by [livejournal.com profile] slightlyboone, so I have enough to make a fairly respectable icon post now.

68 Random icons. Ewan McGregor, David Duchovny, text.

So, I grab the milk for lunch, open it up and take a biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig swig. A moment too late, I realize that said milk has spoiled. Note to self: Smell dairy products before consumption.
In other news, I will definately not be going on a road trip tomorrow to Ohio... three guesses what I'll be doing while Walter drives Tammy crazy. Heh.

Anyway, by request of [livejournal.com profile] nekkidchick, 91 icons from [livejournal.com profile] wendy's baby!Jsquared picspam post here. Nice to have your own personal icon-slave, isn't it, baby? ;) lots of variations on the Superman shirt one (A) Because I rediscovered Optikverve filters and couldn't decide which way I liked them better (B) Because...look...

Next time I need to get some icons done, I'm just going to swear off graphic making...

Farscape's not my fandom, but these are mostly for [livejournal.com profile] aruna7 by request. A few are from her Ben We Want You vid, but I stopped because most of those weren't coming out right. I think I'm too tired tonight. I'll have to try again in December when I have some time. For now, John/Aeryn icons and a couple of Zhaan. #1 and #22 are from Aruna's vid; please credit her if you take them. Thanks, guys.

Okay. Now I am really--REALLY--Swearing off graphics until December. This is by request for [livejournal.com profile] thalion_pip. My image program crashed before I'd saved it the first time, and I couldn't get it to look right with red coloring when I re-did it. I'll be happy to work on some red and blue stuff for you in December, but until then I hope this helps. ;-)

Everyone ready for a laugh? I considered friends-locking this, but I decided to leave the entry public and just post this with the rest of my icons tonight. There are only a few, but they're mostly requests, so I wanted to get them up as I had them done.

But first! *hides head in shame*

I just found like the first icon I EVER made. I have some people on my flists who consistently say they "can't" make icons. So, maybe this will be a bit of encouragement.



Dar's first icon...

And now I feel the need to, like, redeem myself or something, so I remade it:



Definition for Fatebrain and Darbrain...puppies and kitties...and some random Aeryn. No. I have not become a 'Scaper.

Icon post #3 for the evening...SG-1, SGA, and random odds and ends...

37 Stargate SG-1 icons from the s10 promo pics, by request of [livejournal.com profile] aruna7



By Request )

Totally random, but 35 icons of Leelee Sobieski and Marina Sirtis



Random Pretties )

Not quite random, but I've never actually done Xena icons. Rather surprising, since Ares was my pre-Daniel obsession #1.

24 icons total.


It's a god thing )

These aren't quite random either...lol. I just forgot to put them in with the Superman set I posted earlier.

23 Smallville icons, almost all Clark.




Pocket full of... )

Look at that! I did more SGA icons than SG-1! Never happens. Ever.

57 Various s2 icons.


What's a Goo-a-oold? )

Ok, I think that's everything...heading to bed now. Will post to comms tomorrow. Night all.

Ok, I've got some sig banners and a matching icon, by request of [livejournal.com profile] ayden22


banners )


P&P icons my friend Tammy asked for ages ago. I made a few then, but have been meaning to do more, so here's all the ones I have so far. Not sure where I ever posted the original three, so I'm including them. Mostly Lizzie, but I plan on doing more Darcy and some of the other characters at a later date. Also DPS and Legends of the Fall, as requested by [livejournal.com profile] nekkidchick

[20]Dead Poet's Society
[37]Legends of the Fall
[19]Pride and Prejudice


icon requests )

And some King Arthur icons because I believe in Camelot... 25 total.



Camelot Exists )

20 Stargate icons. Daniel/Sha're from CotG; Various from Heroes Pt. 2. These were ones I didn't end up using for [livejournal.com profile] scifi_lims. None of them are even remotely close to what I did use, so I figure they're safe to post. Anyway, the contest is still in round one and open for icon makers, so go join!

Gimme the Gate )

A few people did ask for 1024x768 versions of my last Daniel/Vala walls, so I have some here. If there are specific ones you'd like, just comment to this post and I'll do them as soon as I can. Also have some Daniel/Sha're walls, a D/V header and a couple of forum signatures (1 Daniel/Vala, one John/Aeryn) done by request.



Large Graphic requests )

I have icon requests, too. Going to put those in a separate post because this is long already and there's a lot of them.
