5 icons meme


1. Reply to this post with 'sparkles!', 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.




rheasilvia picked these five of my icons:



So let me tell you about them. Most of my icons are created in paint, by me, hence the low quality. ^.~  But I still like them. ^^


This is my default icon. Since I'm horrible at remembering to use the icons I have I wanted one that I could identify myself with most of the time. My previous default one was one that had followed me from an old forum I used to belong to and I keep it around and use it sometimes for nostalgic reasons or when I don't feel like my normal giddy self. But this one. When I first saw this pic of Subaru I knew I had to make an icon for myself of it. I have an old picture of myself taken in high school by a boy I had a huuuuge crush on. We took a photo class together and he claimed that this particular picture was very *me*. It's taken at the same angle and I have a slightly puckish smile just like Subaru. (Although he is so much prettier <333 ^^) But this one I use for pretty much anything mostly because I feel most comfortable with it.


My OTP! The quality on this one is horrible but I still love it. This is from an episode of Muchaburi where Subaru and Hina were showcasing all the things that made them my OTP in the first place. It wasn't them feeding each other but that part was a pleasant bonus! ^^ I love how Subaru looks so intently at Hina and tries to make him laugh and how Hina indulges Subaru to an extent I don't see him do with the others. So I used this one when commenting on Hina/Subaru fics but they are rare so I haven't used it much. And I haven't been out looking for it for a while either. Looking at this now it reminds me how much I've missed the whole Johnny's fandom that for me nowadays is reduced to one author and one fic, and it's not even Hina/Baru... ^^;;; *goes off to watch Muchaburi for the first time in over a year*


I always loved this particular episode of Shonen Club. And when I started reading rheasilvia stories I felt the need for an icon capturing this wonderful moment. I was going to use it when commenting on her stuff but I keep ending up using my default one anyway. ^^;;;


This is my newest icon. When I changed my default icon to Subaru I wanted to have other ones with him for different moods. I had picked him to be my face on LJ. And I've felt a lack for one that expresses happiness and super giddiness. All the pics I've found (in decent quality) either have him smirking, looking cool or the big smile looks forced and fake. Then the other day I was looking through the pics I have of Hina/Baru/Yoko and I found this one. I haven't used it yet but this is going to be my happy-icon because I think it looks like a big "Wohoooooooooooo!!" ^________^ If I find one of a convincingly giddy Subaru I might replace it though.


My second newest one. This is actually from a promotion poster of Madame Butterfly that is currently running at one of the operas here. (Anyone who wants to go see it with me ^.~) I love the anachronism of it and it's for general Japan-related discussions and anywhere I can squeeze it in basically. ^^

This is the icon I associate with you most, which is why I asked about it - I actually imagined something quite like this, that you identified with the expression Subaru wears here. It is very puckish (the perfect word for it)! And I very much doubt that he is prettier.

This is from an episode of Muchaburi where Subaru and Hina were showcasing all the things that made them my OTP in the first place.

That sounds very cute! I must hunt that ep down and watch it. I didn't realize these two were your OTP!

I always loved this particular episode of Shonen Club.

Me too! Bet you're not very surprised. :-))

The giddy-happy icon is very cute! It's definitely very YAAAAY!

And the katana-with-kitschy-charms is indeed a fascinating contrast.

Interesting!! I love this meme. :-)

Well, we have talked about it before. (But it was almost two years ago so I don’t blame you for not remembering.)
It is very puckish (the perfect word for it)!
And you were actually the one who stated this first... XDDDDD

But now I feel like I should go and try to find that old pic and see if it really is as similar as I remember it to be... Maybe I should post it and you can judge for yourself if there are any similarities. ^^

And I very much doubt that he is prettier.
How could anyone be prettier!?! He is so adorable that it’s almost ridiculous!! (It wasn’t in some sort of self loathing that I stated that, he’s my favorite and I can’t imagine anything cuter ^____________^)

I didn't realize these two were your OTP!
I guess that also means you don’t remember the broccoli conundrum and Hina throwing lobsters and knives or whatever it was really supposed to be ^.~ (This is bringing back some really fun memories!)

This one is from the very first Muchaburi (tell me if you can’t find it and I’ll upload it for you) but there were several episodes of that particular show that had just Hina and Subaru on missions together which made me happy (and it was probably partly there were they were cemented as my OTP). They have this strange but familiar chemistry that I love.

I love this meme.
Yes! It’s a lot of fun!! ^^

Eeeeeekkkkkk.... wow, I'm getting older, aren't I. :-/ Uhm. Well, at least I'm consistent...? Sorry about that,

But I do remember the broccoli conundrum, and the foodfight Subaru and Hina had, and your hilarious drawings! I had just, uhm. Somehow managed to forget about the fact those two are your OTP. (I know... but, uhm. Cut an old woman a break here! *g*)

But now I feel like I should go and try to find that old pic and see if it really is as similar as I remember it to be... Maybe I should post it and you can judge for yourself if there are any similarities. ^^

Heee, yes, that'd be fun! :-))

Like I said, it was a long time ago sweetie. And I also do not blame you for not remembering my OTP. That would seriously be asking too much since I haven’t really produced anything (posts, fics, art, whatever) with them except for that one drawing (and the icon). It does make me curious on how old you really are though, but since one should never ask a lady for her age I won’t do that. ^^

Heee, yes, that'd be fun!
Well then since you think so, I managed to dig it up. ^^ You can find it here .

Sparkles! :D
I'm not sure I have five icons @.@. Oh, well.

Icon 2 and 3 are absolutely adorkable <3 They're all from the same group, right? The blond guy in the second icon kind of looks like a younger Minwoo from Shinhwa.
Minwoo~~~<3

Have you seen this drama starring the Kanjani8-guys? I can't remember the name of it (shocker) but I think it's about a gang of thugs having to care for a baby...or something *_*
Was it good? Would you say it was a funny or a sad drama? Do you even know what I'm talking about?? XDDD;;

Also, I did a quick google on Kanjani8 and I'm wondering, how long have they known each other?? *____*

Second also: I would totes go to the opera to see Mme. Butterfly - do we have more than one opera house here? I did not know that @.@

Well, considering you only had 5 userpics it wasn’t really a difficult choice... ^.~ But I would love to hear more about them nonetheless.



Icon 2 and 3 are adorkable but they aren’t all from the same group. The blond guy belongs to a different one. I’ll give you a thorough lesson some time ^.~

Wow! For once I have absolutely no clue what you’re talking about… XDDDD Although it rings a bell I think you might have gotten some part of that confuddled…

Some of them have been together for a reeeeeeeally long time. If you’re truly interested I’ll be more than happy to give you a history lesson. ^^

Apart from the big opera house there are several smaller ones (this is from one of the smaller ones). And I’ll see about tickets then. ^_______________^
