Then, my life got in the way. I developed other interests. And I didn't always write about them on LJ. Facebook and Twitter were easier. And let's face it: you can always live tweet ponies.
I've also noted that I'm really into three fandoms these days. Unfortunately, I don't have icons for those fandoms.
So here's the deal. I know some of you are better at finding icons than I am. Here are my fandoms:
- My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Yep. I totally went there. Something something brohoof. What can I say, the series really is 20% cooler than anything else currently on television. Favorite characters include Pinkamina Diane Pie, Fluttershy, and Sweetie Belle. Twilight Sparkle is my homepony, too, so I should best throw her in.
- K-On! The power of moe compels me. I'm a particular sucker for Yui. If I were the waifu taking sort, well, she wouldn't be mine. She'd be my mistress.
- The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Or as I like to call it, Superbitch (because she's a bitch that kind of won the superpower lottery). Remember how I said that if I were the waifu taking sort, Yui Hirasawa would be my mistress? That's because Yuki Nagato from the Disappearance alternate universe would be my waifu. I've become particularly fond of the spinoff manga series The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan (which I was following before it got picked up because I didn't expect that to happen).
I don't ship in any of these fandoms rather explicitly, and for good reasons. In the first case, they're horses. No. In the second, I find that shipping gets in the way of the deep friendship the characters have with each other (but I will admit that there are times when I wonder about Mio and Ritsu). In the third, I've learned from my Harry Potter days that shipping wars are no fun.
So this is me pleading for icon sources.
