What are your oldest icons? The ones you uploaded long long ago and could never manage to phase out? Post the icon, your name/caption for it, how long you've had it (if you remember) and why you've kept it.
Credit the artist if you know where you got it, lj-cut if you're posting more than 3 icons, etc! And if you feel like it, add in your newest icon acquisition/creation at the bottom for more gratuitous iconage. :)
Three Oldest Icons:
Keyword: sga - alcohol porn - nostalgia
Comment: "The Atlantis Orgy is a wonderful thing."
How long I've had it: Since right after the Atlantis premiere. This icon sort of set the tone for the sheppard_n_weir yahoo!group list, I think.
Why I Can't Get Rid Of It: Sentimental reasons. And the hope that it will encourage more drunken!sex!fic, which we haven't had nearly enough of lately.
Keyword: sga - cutewhensick - duckadork
Comment: "... or so they tell me."
How long I've had it: Same as above, over 3 years. I think when I uploaded this, every single icon I had was from the first two episodes of Atlantis.
Why I Can't Get Rid Of It: I think I used this for just about every post for, like, a year, because it's the perfect icon for when I'm being sick and pathetic. Thankfully that doesn't happen as much anymore, but I keep it just in case.
Keyword: sg - mini!OTP - A.j.
Comment: "theyaresocute!" (um... when I started this meme five minutes ago I didn't realize how embarrassing this might actually be for me. But they are.)
Artiste: aj, who was familyarchives at the time
How long I've had it: Don't remember...
Why I Can't Get Rid Of It: I kept it because I think I'm still the moderator of miniotp, and because the mini!otp own a small tidy corner of my fandom soul forever.
This is actually from an old icon set that she did. It's been on my hard drive forever, and I realize the only Trip/T'Pol icon I have is of them being all SAD-LIKE, and I am in it more for the flailing squeee. So behold! Flailing squeee!
