the hagaren manga is coming to an end (one more chapter! MEEP!), and so is brotherhood. and good god, if that series wasn't meant to be animated, then i don't know what is! x3 so to celebrate the awesomeness that is the climax of the story, here's a huuuuge batch of brotherhood icons, including a lot of animated gifs, because edo's antics are way too funny, roy's curbstomping of envy was way too epic, and pride's awesomeness cannot be appropriately conveyed by still icons.
(if i'm allowed to gush, just a little-- when i first read pride's reveal in the manga, i thought it was a stroke of genius. seriously, it was the most shocking twist i had read since snape turned out to be quirrell, and i was eager to see that moment animated. and then when that episode finally came out... i was awestruck. =O it was so much better than i imagined it would be! i mean, i already thought the idea of pride was scary, but the anime team, i don't know how they did it, but they turned it up to ELEVEN. animated!pride is the just about the creepiest thing since that kid from the omen, and that is saying a lot because the kid from the omen is basically my top standard of creepiness.. and that, my fellow fans... makes him FAWESOME. i love him in all his kid-slasher, purple-eyed, randomly-guylinered glory. xDDD)
as for PJO, i made the percy/annabeth wallpaper about two hours after i got home from watching the movie on premiere day, for my personal use. later on i made some variations and decided, hey, maybe someone could use them ^^ later on i started making a luke/thalia video, for which i made about, oh, a hundred plus manips of jake abel and kaya scodelario (you know, making hair darker, eyes electric blue and/or icy blue, that sort of thing). since they're all in my hard drive anyway, i decided i might as well use them for something else.
the model for thalia is, of course, kaya scodelario of skins fame, who is so damn perfect for the role, it's not even funny. xD most of the pics are from K-S.org and jake abel online.
hope you like! =3

and the silken sad uncertain rustling of each purple curtain
thrilled me - filled me with fantastic terrors never felt before;
so that now, to still the beating of my heart, I stood repeating
"'tis some visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door -
some late visitor entreating entrance at my chamber door; -
this it is, and nothing more." --from "the raven" by edgar allan poe.
you knew all along, i'm so thankful you were there. --from "let it out" by fukuhara miho.

103_ in case you're wondering: no, i don't ship scar/riza. it's just that when in saw that scene, the first thought that popped into my head was "well, i'm sure there must be at least one person out there going 'EEEEE CANON!'" xDDDD
