I would deem "if you like your coffee hot, let me be your coffee pot" a cheesy lyric. But I don't find it cheesy when the Arctic Monkeys sing it.
"Heh, I should turn that into a Valentine," I said to myself. And thus I decided to make fandom'tines this year. Love notes to the fandoms that helped through the adoption wait.
GreenAngelHeart is my Arctic Monkey buddy, so I tweeted this one at her. It was well-received.
Then, of course I needed to make something for one of Rainbow's books. How about the Boba Fett reference in Eleanor & Park?
During church, my phone started going "bzzt... bzzt... bzzt..." Because I get a notification when somebody favorites or retweets when I'm mentioned on Twitter and Rainbow had mentioned the Valentine.
I made one for My Mad Fat Diary (cheating a bit and starting with a graphic I made over the summer):
I needed a Valentine for fandom itself. A pal runs a Snowverse Tumblr; I was duty-bound to make something she could reblog, right? Hence, the SnowBaz Valentine.
I wanted to make one for Misfits, using Rudy. But I never found a screencap that I liked enough and was ready to be done at five.
But then molliekatie started following me on Tumblr and I saw where she was asking if anybody was going to make a Valentine for Attachments, so...
I love the tags on this reblog: #OMG #Attachments #attttaccccchhhhmmentsssss #i'mmm meltiiinnngggg #lincolnnnn and bethhhhhh #best quotes #what is this liiiffffeeeeee
(Will I do this next year? We'll see. *but molliekatie's already asked if there will be a Landline one and you know me...*)
