I LOVE YOU. & also, requests!

what was that? i'm sorry, i can't hear you over the sound of how awesome dreamscaping's members are. ;)

seriously! less than a week after the 500-member mark, & we're already at 600 members & counting. i don't know about you guys, but i think that deserves a celebration. so... read on!

honestly, it's not just the numbers. you are all so wonderful about commenting, responding to polls, & crediting my work, & just generally being amazing. especially those of you who have commented on almost every post, from the start-- it means so much to me that you like my work, so thank you for taking the time to let me know it.


(note: i adore ALL of you-- please don't be offended if i missed you this time!)

kyliemou: my very first member! :) & also the first & only person to actually break her mouse by saving too many of my icons. ;) i LOVE your comments. thanks for being so awesome!

youreyesaregems: i'm pretty sure you've commented on every single one of my posts! thank you so much. :)

pluckygirl: your icon pusher loves you. ;) seriously, your comments crack me up & invariably make my day. thank you! :)

damnedprecious: you're one of those people who always takes time to write a few words more than just "took [insert numbers], thanks", & they're so much fun to read. thank you so much! :)

ducks: you got me into buffy & angel. enough said. :) seriously, though, my fangirling heart can't thank you enough for that, not to mention all the lovely comments! :)

claire_kay: one of my first members & one of my favorite commenters. :) thank you!

lastbeautflgrl: you take the time to write such nice things! thank you so much for that. we also seem to like a lot of the same music/shows/etc., which makes you that much more awesome. :)

lonewolf82: you're one of those people who will always leave a note, even if it's a few days after the post, & i appreciate that so much. :) also, i have something shiny for you:



jennlynnfs: not only do you always leave wonderful comments, i so appreciated the mention in your journal when you first joined the comm. thank you so much for taking the time to do that. :)

wicked_liz: i love your comments-- & you're one of those who has been around pretty much since i started the comm, which means a lot to me. :) thank you!

suckmyspock: i just always look forward to your comments! that's what you get for flailing over my icons, i guess. ;) you always make me smile-- thank you!

dleighr: i actually saved your first comment (the IM convo) because it cracked me up SO much. thank you for posting that, & mentioning the comm in your journal!

shewascrashing: you always take the time to comment, which is so great. & you suggested the six feet under batch, which was so much fun to make-- i loved re-watching all my dvds, & it's good to know someone else appreciated all the quotes as much as i did! ;)

1great_escape: i really appreciate that you've been active in everything i've done here, from the request box to the polls. & thank you so much for leaving comments that are so much fun to read. :)

ravestarr: i think you've also commented on just about all of my posts, & i always notice & just wanted you to know that i appreciate it so much. :)


on to the celebration! i'm going to be in my favorite city in the world this week visiting graduate schools, but it turns out that i have wireless internet in my hotel room, so i'll still be in touch after all. i have a lot of free time in the evenings (i have to keep the craziness to a minimum, since i need to look polished & academically-oriented every morning ;), so this is what we're going to do:

- in the comments, you may request up to three (3) text-only icons

- please specify text, text color, & background color (& font preference, if you have one)

- here's the best part: there's no limit to the number of members who can make requests. obviously, i'll get to your icons faster if you comment sooner, but even if you're the hundredth person to comment, you'll still get your icons. :)

- all icons will be shareable (i'll do a results post early next week.)

in summary, you're awesome, so start requesting. :)

love,

alyse (indecentexposed)

Text // Having a Fangirly Moment

What an awesome celebration! But it's definitely deserved, you're a great icon-maker and a super-sweet person! :) It makes me feel good about pimping your comm to all my friends!

As for requests, I do have a couple! Because yaaaaay, requests!

1) Black BG, red text, any kind of rakish font that you've got: I'm just sayin'.

2) Black BG, pink text in your confession font. Confession #(whatever) i love you, even though you drive me insane.

3) Black BG, white text: you're so creepy and wrong.

Characters

Could I get:
1.) That says: Caution: Headcase at Work
2.) That says: You are why God made safety scissors
And 3.) That says: Those You've Known, and Lost Still Walk Behind You

I leave all artistic decisions to your insurmountable genius. Enjoy your trip!

Skillet Nicknames

-dead on the floor- -fell out of her chair screaming causing death-

-comes back to life-

-sends an uber cyber cookie- Oh my gosh I love you! That icon is my new favorite...it's amazing! Thankyouthankyouthankyou!!!

Oooo requests...Now to make up my mind...

On black, with preferably silver/white/blue (your choice, whatever's good) text, in some kind of cool font...

1: Well, I think I had a point, but I just got distracted
2: The older I get/Maybe I'll get over it
3: And you can't see past the blood on my hands/To see that you've been aptly damned

Uh, I think that'll do it. Yay!

(and for anyone who's curious, 1 is from Maintain Consciousness by Relient K, 2 is from The Older I Get by Skillet, and 3 is from Forgiven by Relient K)

Overeducated

I'm one of your hundred newest in the last month. Hello, and congrats. I LURVE your icons.

If I may be so presumpuous as to make a request--

Red background, fading into black with rakish white font: "Your mind is my playground."

Royal purple with white text, vaguely Gothic: "Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup."

And vari-colored shades of purple with rather manic looking white or black text-- "I'm not a control freak-- I just happen to know what's best for everyone."

Thanks and MANY congrats!

sylar kill you

Heya, I'm one of the recent and so far silent members, but I've been saving loads of your icons for use when I finally upgrade my accounts! (yes, accounts plural, I also have an RPG account that needs those icons like woah!)

Now I'm going to be so very very cheeky and make a couple of requests if that's ok?!

1) "I'm fibbing. It's lying only classier" (quote from Gwen Raiden in Angel)

2) one of the confession icons please? Saying "I'm sorry, but I fell in love with you."

Both black backgrounds with white text please!

Thanks for all the great icons so far, which have made me giggle muchly! Awesome work!

[RANDOM] attention plz omg

Aww, now I have that warm feeling of specialness flowing through me. And I'm struck with the urge to start flailing -- yay!

But no need to thank me at all, I just call 'em like I see 'em, my friend -- you make completely rad icons. You deserve your 600+ members. :D

And I'm kind of wishing I had something to request, just so I could get more of your icons. But alas, I have nothing on my mind. Maybe next time, I guess. :P

You know what? Even if I wasn't your first member, I'd break a billion mouses for your icons. I am completely and utterly in love with your work of art. Honestly, I feel like I get to know you better every time I see your wonderful icons. What favorite city are you going to? What is your major, if you don't mind me asking? Currently, I don't have any requests so I'll lighten your load by not asking for any. I do recall having requested icons before so I'm good for now. If you don't mind, may I add you as a friend on your personal LJ? =]

EDIT: Sorry, I got stupid on my previous comment (which I deleted), not realizing I had you already friended on my other LJ user name gryffindorkyli2. But for some odd reason, when I wandered over to your personal LJ on this name, it asked me if I wanted to friend you.

EDIT: You know what? Now I'm just plain confused. XD Ignore me. *hugs*

Posted at: February 5th, 2008 01:07 am (UTC)

you are so sweet. :) i'm going to chicago, where i'll be moving & (hopefully!) going to graduate school in the fall. i actually took a year off between undergrad & grad school, so i'm not in school now, but i majored in psychology. i want to get my master's, & maybe my ph.d eventually.

my personal lj is all private for now-- i'm crazy busy & doing six million things at any given time, so i need a place to channel the massive amount of stuff going on in my head. i'm thinking about opening it up to friends at some point in the (semi-near) future, though. i'll post here when that happens, for sure. you'll be first on the list. :)

*hugs* back!

Ooo. Fun.

I was wondering if I could request some confession style icons, but...not pink? I would love black with white text.

If so...here's what I would love them to say
+ Surprise. I'm better than your boyfriend.
+ Guitar Hero makes me feel famous.
+ I need blood. No. Really.

Aw *blush* You are really too too sweet. (Wait till you get into the later seasons of Buffy! I'm just waiting for you to make the Buffy musical icons!) You can thank jennlynnfs for bringing me here!

Anyway, I love love all your icons... I do have one request.

The words "Oh. My. Goddess." on three separate lines. I want the font to be the same one you use for the "stupid lamb" icon that you have. I want an off-whitish background and maybe greyish text colour? You judge. (Oh. My. Goddess. is something Willow says in Season 7 and I've always wanted that as an icon!)

You truly rock. Thanks for making these great icons.

Aww, you're certainly welcome! I definitely appreciate all your hard work, I don't think I've ever been in another community where I honestly like every single post...it's wonderful here!

And you spoil us to death, which doesn't hurt at all ;-)

Ok, ok...requests...

Feel free to break these lines up however you want/need...this was just how they copied over.

1.) (no preferences)
Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here
waiting for you

2.) (black background, burgundy/maroon/dark red text)
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Than the strength she had to get up off her knees

3.) (something light blue, either text or background)
On your birthday
Mama's thinking of you
The child I never knew
My lullaby in blue


Thank you so much!

Totally Crushing

I was so thinking of a response if my name wasn't on there. So happy that I am. I luvz you too icon pusher!!! *Makes out with a picture of you* Wait you didn't know that I have a picture of you?...Awkward. *points away from me and shouts "Look its Buffy!" and runs while you're distracted* I haven't commented on the last couple of posts because school is killing me but I will check them out this weekend. Oh and I'll come up with ideas for icons for this but only after I finish my homework. *Is nerd*

I love your stuff. I'll never have another pusher. :)

Text: FTW!

You are so sweet! I was totally not expecting a special thanks. :) There are so many people here, I didn't think my comments would get noticed in the multitude of so many who love your icons. :) I actually have been meaning to go to your previous post to swipe some of those b/c they had me cracking up so bad.

You're so generous to do an open request. I just started dabbling with making icons and you're so nice to take so many requests! You also make it look so easy. :)

My requests please:
1) I really liked your "Fuck this! I'm going to Hogwarts!" icon, but would it be possible to modify the F word with stars? Like: F*** this! I'm going to Hogwarts!" I know it loses some of it's kick like that, and don't get me wrong, I swear in RL too, but for my personal taste, I'd rather not have swear words spelled out in print.

2) White background, Black text: I win at life.

3) Black background, white text: I lose at life.

Thank you, Alyse! You deserve it all.

Btw, if I may ask, which grad school are you visiting? My sister is going to grad school in NYC.
