fialleril asked me about these icons:
I was looking for a Star Wars icon that I could identify with the most, something I could relate to most and that would accurately represent my personality. This scene is one of my favorites from the Original. Who hasn't had a moment of longing, of dreaming, like Luke had in this scene?
I don't know how I stumbled upon this icon and the three others like it. teh_indy made icons for each of the DVD chapters for AOTC, so since Naboo is one of my favorite locations in the Prequel Trilogy and I'm a bit of a Padmé specialist, I picked this one and the others just in case I might post a related story.
I think I picked this before the second POTC movie came out. I wasn't much of a Will/Elizabeth shipper (and honestly, what red-blood American boy would be?), but I was less of a Jack/Elizabeth shipper. So when I saw this, I thought, "Liz and Jack kiss?? Excuse Me???" When the movie came out and Elizabeth actually kissed Jack, I never thought I would feel as sorry for Will as I did. When I use it, which isn't very often, it usually has something to do with a surprise, sort of WTF? subject.
Dashing Al. Aladdin is probably my favorite Disney movie, and just the "How you doin'?" look on Al's face is hysterical. I usually use it with Disney related posts, or when trying to be overly charming.
Will Cookies! It took me a loooooong time to find padabee's orginal post for this icon, but I just had to express that I really liked it. It's just such an unexpected line for a pirate to say in the middle of a battle. Just picture Will saying, "Who will help me rescue Elizabeth?" followed by silence. Then Will changes tactics, saying, "She makes the best cookies in Port Royale," followed by cheers and declarations to follow Will to the ends of the Earth, literally, to have just one of Liz's homemade cookies. I've yet to use it, but it is most likely going to be used whenever cooking or sweets are the subject matter. Besides, who doesn't love cookies?
I was so excited to see the preview of the next generation of animated Clone Wars adventures a Celebration IV that I just had to have a related icon. I'm not exactly sure if my motivation for using this icon is always consistent, but I usually use it whenever Obi-Wan is part of the discussion.
The funniest line from the classic and campy Batman movie, and probably the only line I have memorized from it. It makes you wonder how often Batman has to get rid of a bomb and how difficult/easy is it usually for him to do so. It's just one of those outrageous type of things. I've been using it for posts related to the new Batman movie coming out next Summer until I find something better, but I'll keep using it for the occassional outrageous subject.
