[icons] Infinite + 2 BtVS

swhunt.flames
Soo I've been sitting on a couple BtVS icons for a while inspired by kikimay, but never posted.

Here they are:
blood.bond.iconbloodbond.icon.01

I should make a note about this first icon: "not in blood but in bond" doesn't seem like it applies to Dawn+Buffy - but a larger point (that I will someday make) is that they are sisters regardless of blood. The blood makes Dawn "real" - but their bond goes beyond blood. I think, anyway, that these two women prove to each other that they are sisters from beginning to end - the blood only makes their bond stronger, it does not define their bond. (I'd be more coherent if it wasn't so late and I wasn't so exhausted.)


And behind the cut - far too many Infinite icons pulled from the teaser. Bless this teaser. Bless our boys. Bless this fandom.

THE ONES WITH THE DIAMONDS! That's so cool!

And I am so madly in love with the banner I cannot even put it into words.

Oh, these are nice. My favourites:

Ooooh! Yes, I really do like that one of Sungyeol (the green one)!!

Thanks for commenting!





Yes, your flist has been taken over by Infinite for the week. just wait for the single to actually be released ((Also I noticed your comment on Alex's page - and yes, a trailer doesn't really do the boys' justice in terms of personality/etc. They generally wear a LOT of makeup - but all the kpop idols do (and I've been told most people in Korea, male and female) so it seems pretty ~normal to me at this point? idk - I love them sweaty, pretty, bare, and made-up because I'm so attracted to their personalities?))

Well I also took a look at Ranking King and it cracked me up. Or, the personalities they project crack me up.

(Yeah, most people on Korea do, or so I've heard too.)

SATAN BLESS THIS TEASER FOR BEING SUCH GOOD ICON FUEL. Such a good little teaser. *pets*

I am very into the pudding, dragon slayer, diamond split-screen, and star ones. And the ones Rosa indicated with the blending.

A good post.

THERE'S SO MUCH FODDER FOR THE IMAGINATION! *pets* Seriously I want all the fic. but especially SPN-Dongwoo fallen!angel grabbing Castiel's ass and fighting demons and falling in love with Daesung AND I'LL JUST NEVER UNDERSTAND FANDOM! Why the divide? Why aren't there more delightful crossovers that take the characters seriously? where is the surplus of femslash to drive sterek underground????

Why isn't Dongwoo grabbing Castiel's ass all the time?!?!?

#priorities

I'm glad you like them - and thanks for commenting! My emotions are in the icons.

That banner is fantastic.

I do like the diamond patterns a great deal and for some reason the Sungjong ones as well. Maybe because they seem to strike a different tone from the teaser itself?

Myungsoo/steampunk mummies. Someone needs to make this happen.


Thank you so much for the comment!

I wish they had taken the time to do a teaser for each boy - because it seems like each scene has it's own ~theme and story ... Sungjong's especially seems to be in a world of it's own. And I want to know those worlds.

Sometimes it really hits me that Infinite is a living, breathing band that is real and performed simultaneously. And the fact that it isn't a series about seven men being full of flaws flawless sometimes reminds me of the delightful nuance.

What is this fandom? And how is it so lovely?

We can still hold out hope for individual teasers, right? God knows Woollim is seemingly desperate to let everyone know how much they spent. Re performance: oh I know. I wish I could articulate better all my feels about these guys and their constant performances and the contrast between real, scripted, and posed. anywho: am lonely as usual but conversing with you is always delightful and I love so much of what you do

I've been sitting on a couple BtVS icons for a while inspired by kikimay, but never posted.

Did you see the icons that lj user=fray_adjacent12> made of Buffyverse women also inspired by kikimay's use of the phrase? I'm using her "Family? one right now. It was our convo about Blood Ties that got the ball rolling.


I should make a note about this first icon: "not in blood but in bond" doesn't seem like it applies to Dawn+Buffy - but a larger point (that I will someday make) is that they are sisters regardless of blood. The blood makes Dawn "real" - but their bond goes beyond blood. I think, anyway, that these two women prove to each other that they are sisters from beginning to end - the blood only makes their bond stronger, it does not define their bond.

*nods* I said much the same thing in response to kikimay's phrase (she said it comes from Thor and Loki fandom but I think of it as her's and by extension our's - ie. buffyverse fandom) and also in a recent meta of my own about Buffy & Tara, and the ladies of the verse in general:

" "Family" begins with Buffy verbally committing to protect Dawn from Glory after learning that Dawn isn't "real", and ends with Buffy and Dawn protecting Tara from the Maclays and naming her as one of their own: "Who do you think you are?" / "We're family." Speaking the words: "family" "sisters" "Summers blood" makes the commitment as physical and as real as mixing her own blood with Dawn's in BT. Not in blood alone, but in bond."

With Dawn and Buffy, the bond (committment) procedes the (act of joining) blood.

Yes I HAVE seen fray_adjacent12's icons! They are stunning! And a HUGE factor in me making those two, also.

(I totally think of it as hers/ours now, also. Such is fandom.)

Not in blood alone, but in bond.
*NODS*
Exactly. The act of blood and blood-sharing occurs only AFTER a verbal recognition that Family means so much more than blood. It always makes me shiver when Dawn stands next to Buffy in defense of Tara. We may have been unclear where she stood at the beginning of the episode/season - but they are sisters FIRST in character and second in body.

Which would be so very important to them considering their father's abandonment - Family isn't the people you are stuck with, it is the group that chooses you. Even when it seems like they shouldn't.

guh

thanks. gonna go cry now.


((ps: hihi! If I haven't told you lately, I truly appreciate and love your presence and self and words and EVERYTHING! I'm so sorry RL has been so rude and made me terribly neglectful of you. Just know that I covet and cherish your comments selfishly, even if I don't always have time to reply! I hate leaving shallow replies - it is the worst feeling. Especially when comments are delightful and deserve more time and energy than I have to give at that moment. ♥ ))

Oh YES -THIS, every word of it. The perfect summation.

If I haven't told you lately, I truly appreciate and love your presence and self and words and EVERYTHING! I'm so sorry RL has been so rude and made me terribly neglectful of you.

Oh no, hon, nothing to be sorry for! I've had your reply to me (pt 1 your Dawn meta) printed out and have meant to reply for a MONTH and feel guilty. (Also, I feel guilty that I haven't read the other parts, never mind your other buffyverse metas because they look fascinating and they are women-centric and hit all my kinks.)

I'll reply to your other reply right now.

Especially when comments are delightful and deserve more time and energy than I have to give at that moment. ♥ ))

Now you're making me cry - happy tears.
