Icon meme!

Had a nice birthday. Weird that I am officially 20. For the actual day, [ profile] splintercat organized a trip to a Japanese-style karaoke place with private booths and we spent two hours making crazy, loud, off key fools out of ourselves. It was awesome. Also received amazing joke presents from friends from home, [ profile] wyvernrabbit and [ profile] enjoyabel:

1) Gone With the Nerd
2) Modified standing cut-out of Edward Cullen. Mine has sparkly Wonder Woman wrist cuffs, and buttons that say "I Support Cedric Diggory" and "I Sparkle For Liz."

Point two has taken up residency in my dorm room, where he has acquired further modifications in the form of a fashionable scarf and a panda hat. He watches over me while I sleep!

Be horrified. You know I am. Although slowly he's grown on me until I can almost view him with a kind of affection.

There were some other things I wanted to talk about, but I've pretty much forgotten what they were. I've been neglecting this LJ for too long.

Oh yes, I have a Twitter now, which I promise I will never bother you LJ friends about again. However, for the interested, you now have a link.

Alright, enough of that randomness. Have a meme:

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six 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.

I was prompted by [ profile] thisissirius!

Keywords: Al = Ara?!
Why I have it: I have a deep and abiding love for Al of Fullmetal Alchemist. He is a cutie pie. Al, like Hal, is pronounced "kuhp-keyk." I love the FMA movie just because he's in it (as two different, separately awesome people)! And FMA is making a come back this anime season! Also, this icon in and of itself is extremely adorable. Just look at it! Also, "ara" is a cutesy/feminine way of saying "huh?" or "what?" in Japanese. The cuteness is key here! It allows me to express confusion in a way that is cute and endearing and will hopefully offset the obnoxious questioning that is sure to follow in the comment itself!

Keywords: Merlin/Arthur = Cheers!
Why I have it: They keep saving each other. Also, this is my favorite scene and I love the coloring of it here in this icon.

Keywords: Waterhouse = Rue with a difference!
Why I have it: I'm not a particular fan of Shakespeare's, but I do like Ophelia, and I adore John William Waterhouse. The full painting of Ophelia that this is cropped from is creeeeepy, but I really love how Waterhouse composed this painting--its colors, her stance, the style of her clothes. So I cropped out her crazy stare and left in the pretty. "Rue with a difference" is a line of Ophelia's when she's handing out flowers, since I imagine she's picking them here.

Keywords: Bradley = Hahaha no!
Why I have it: Oh, Bradley James. I love you, but this icon is only ever to be used in irony.

Keywords: Ianto = Clumsy!
Why I have it: I love Ianto. I love this line. I am often a huge, blundering idiot. This icon's use sort of speaks for itself.

Keywords:Jack = Stop! Harkness time! (New plan!)
Why I have it: Stop (first hand motion)! Now meditate on my awesomeness (second hand motion). This icon says, "pay attention to Jack, as he's about to fix everything that's gone off track in this comment thread!" I'm obviously playing on "Stop! Hammertime!" here, and this never fails to make me laugh (at myself).
