Buffy Casablanca Poster poppy wreath  RS

I'll be mostly AWOL due to RL stuff this coming week but in the meanwhile....

1) Deadline to VOTE in slayerstillness Challenge 39 "Love is in the Air" is Monday March 2 and there are 26 super icons to pick from, so please vote and show your love.  (Did you ever notice people don't leave comments much in icontest challenge threads. Why not?  I'd LOVE to see more feedback and reactions beyond voting, because I've learned - you can't give everything your vote even if you love everything.)

This round is about "couples", canon and non-canon and I LOVE the range of these icons:  Wiffy, Bara (*incoherent screams of joy*), Fred/Gunn, Xander/Cordy, Cangel, Willow/Oz, Willow/Tara, Darla/Angelus, and - yes, even Bangel and Spuffy. Request to starry_night: Can we do that prompt again?  Because this was fun and I feel like I was just getting warmed up. I've dubbed 2015 The Year of Unconventional/Overlooked Buffyverse Pairings and it's great to see so many other people thinking outside the usual boxes.

2) Deadline to vote for Round 7 of btvsats20in20 is Tuesday March 3: THEMES, CATEGORY Sets (Chain Reaction) and Artist's Choice Sets . Be sure not to miss any.  I have been terribly behind due to RL stuff and haven't pimped this round properly, but the icons this set are absolutely amazing and wonderful works of art, so be sure to also check out the individual sets at the creators' journals and leave feedback.

I have a major RL thing this week so I'll be mostly away and out of town, and quite preoccupied with it, but I'll try to check in as I can. So please forgive me if I don't reply back immediately, and send my sweetie and I good thoughts.
I've already voted for both communities and it was so difficult to do, there were so many wonderful icons!!!!

If I post anything I think you may be interested in I will send you the links in a private message if you'd like.

Lots of good thoughts coming your way!
Thank you dearheart!

Right? If I had to vote in slayerstillness again my choices might look entirely different. Ask me in five minutes....I'm more confident about my choices for the 20in20 but a couple of them - Partial face? OY VEY, I loved too many.

Please do! I'm learning to do that with my own stuff when I want to make sure someone sees it and I always appreciate receiving links. LJ's notification system - gah, I'll stop that rant before I get started. (I double checked my settings and actually didn't see the option anymore.)
You are very welcome dear! (I noticed you hadn't voted at 20in20 and realized I needed to do some pimpage asap.)

I'd feel badly that I haven't pimped this round as heavily as usual but as you know I have a RL excuse.
Of course we can do that prompt again. I love seeing all the different pairings people love (canon or not) and the icons for this challenge were fantastic! :D
The variety of pairings took me by surprise (but maybe it shouldn't have? I think perhaps this fandom is coming into an era where more 'ships are being appreciated? Or maybe that's always been the case.)

And the choices - I already told you but oh gosh, so hard to decide. I could happily vote again 2 or 3 more times and select entirely different sets!
I already voted for both challenges. I must say that the Valentine's day one was really really hard because there were great icons and a lots of good and unconventional pairings too.
And, as always, btvsats20in20 is really fun.

Agreed - thank you for voting Kiki!

I must say, I actually enjoyed voting this round of 20in20 as just a voter, not a participant. It was kind of fun (and less stressful). I wonder if I voted differently than I would have otherwise? I don't think so, but this round i really focused on why I selected certain things.
SlayerStillness was incredibly difficult! I did what I could to make choices, but it was crazy challenging.

Also, one of the reasons you may not see comments in icontests is because those communities screen all their comments so the mods have to approve what is posted there.

*hugs* Good luck with RL.

This was one of those rounds where I feel like my votes don't reflect anything really except - "I have to make a decision." If I was allowed to vote a second time, it would probably look quite different.

Good luck with RL.

Thank you sweetheart!

I hadn't thought of that! The nice thing about the 20in20 is that we can comment at people's posts
