[identity profile] simplystars.livejournal.com posting in [community profile] ds_team_whimsy
With a little (desperately needed) help from [livejournal.com profile] sdwolfpup and our very own [livejournal.com profile] catwalksalone, who saved me from my woeful lack of artistic skillz. \sdw/\ &hearts /\cat/

So, umm. I wanted to make everyone an icon to represent both their story and the team. &hearts At first I had the grand idea of making an animated icon with pics to represent each story, but the size limit is, well, limiting. :-p

Pictures shamelessly procured from google. SDW and Cat saved my bacon when Dess had to go and be all brilliant and write shapeshifting Ray, which was waaaaaaaay beyond my limited crop/resize/text abilities.

Some of you only have one icon, don't feel neglected! But those were the cases when I felt I'd found exactly the right image and was all happy with the icon. Really! People with multiple choices are, in actuality, the beneficiaries of my indecisiveness and waffling. :D

Also, if [livejournal.com profile] alex51324 will allow it, I've made an icon for all of us at the very end... *vbg*

Given the warm enthusiasm for the stories people think I wrote (and I'm most flattered by these misconceptions), I don't imagine it will be socklessness so much as head-scratching and "You wrote that? Huh."
On reflection I find that this amuses me.

I do indeed. Now that is a shame there should be more mermen in the internets there really should.

I htought I recognised it form somewhere. That was an amazing picture. And clearly proves merpeople have blue tails *nods*.

Oh, my goodness, Stars, how had I not seen this??!!! You are INSANELY AMAZING!! These are all fantastic and creative and brilliant. I adore them all. ALL. All are PERFECT for their stories, and I am in awe.

So, in the ones for my story, Cat made the illustrations and you designed the icons, including the picking the fonts? And SD made another icon? HOMG, you guys!!! *cries and cries* They're all amazing; thank you all so much for making these! I can't BELIEVE I am such a humongous dork and didn't see this post before now.

What a lovely, thoughtful gesture to make for all of us, Stars. You are such a rockstar. Do you mind if I link to this in the Recsredux post that announces the prizes so people can bask in your genius?
