If you take any of the icons.. comment and credit. ^_^
(Comments and song inspirations)
1.) Nothing in particular.
2.) "Sunrise" by Duran Duran (Duran Duran is a big inspiration for me)
3.) Light of your Smile.. no, nothing really specific. I just made it.
4.) Why I am not a die-hard fan of the pairing of Yui/Citan. I can appreciate it on a canonical level.
5.) "Don't Say a Prayer" by Duran Duran. Lyrics brush by divinecomedy.
6.) "Veins of Glass" by Lacuna Coil. It is really supposed to say, "The innocence that smiles today.. tomorrow will be lying.." but I conveniently left the last part out. Intentional. Yes.
7.) "My Antartica" by Duran Duran.
8.) Okay so I have a hard-on for Citan and Fei. >.>
9.) "Different Seasons" by Breathe. One of the lines, "Nature's cruel.. it's just changing seasons" which was the inspirational line.
10.) This one is purely in the lyrics which is from "Gold" by Spandeau Ballet. Lyrics Here
11.) My favorite pairing is Hyuga Ricdeau and Sigurd Harcourt. I was thinking of the two when I made this icon. I coloured Hyuga in purple because it was almost like looking at him through Sigurd's perspective. And I don't think Hyuga could hide anything from Sigurd. Either willfully or unknowingly. And even if one disbelieves that such a relationship between them existed. Canon maintains that they -were- best friends.
12.) Citan and his daughter, Midori. It is involving his 'child' and well Midori is a very sullen girl so I used the words 'sour girl'.
13.) Main inspiration for this song was "Hold on Hope" by Guided by Voices. I particularly like how it looks very.. pink and reds. I hope I can diverge from the greens that is sort of the Uzuki staple.
14.) I wanted to do a Fei/Citan centric icon, and this was what came out. The blues and greens mingle very well for that particular pairing.
15.) This was taken from a Loreena McKennitt song entitled "Dark Night of the Soul" which was a really beautiful song by her.. the feel of the song and the icon sort of coincide. Hyuga in my mind possesses melancholic tendancies, but only because I have labeled him as a melancholy personality.. Citan.. well Citan Uzuki was the personage that he -created- for himself.
16.) The song, "Beloved" by VNV Nation. Wonderful song. Lyric brush by divinecomedy
17.) Hyuga Ricdeau back in Jugend period was the Element of Water. And so this theme was perfect for him, I think it came out exactly how I wanted it to.
18.) What is the most important time of the day for Citan Uzuki? Why it is tea-time of course. Every since that infamous scene where Maison, Citan and Fei have a chat over tea (Well okay so Fei is sulking..) Tea and the Good Doctor has been synonymous. In fact on Soraya Saga's site at one time there was posted scents and characters. And wouldn't you know it but Citan Uzuki's trademark scent is green tea. A wonderfully calming scent for an elegant and refined individual.
19.) Mad arts skillz by fellow Citan enthusiast reynardfox. I never pegged Citan as a smoker, but I believe that this picture conveys despair Citan style. Arm over eyes shows that he is reluctant to let anyone see.. but I can imagine the eyes that are revealed if one pulls the arm away is nothing short of tortured.
20.) I was agonizing what to do with this icon. As those two are my supported pairings for Hyuga/Citan. I did not want to leave one without the other, so I opted to give Hyuga and Citan both face-time on the icon. Respectively with Fei and Sigurd. So there. All canon-fags can talk to my hand because it's not like I'm bashing Yui. (Who I'd so totally do..)
