Journal Bling  
Made myself a Trio 'verse icon. *points* I made one without text, too, if anyone wants it:



Feel free to edit as you will.

Also dabbling in a new journal layout. Yes/no? Is it okay to read on?

Thumbs up for both the icon and new layout! I'm liking the icons appearing in circles.

Yeah, it's a bit spiffy, isn't it?

I've had my old one for ages, but I've never found anything I liked more than it until now. I think this one is very elegant and easy to read. Thanks for your two cents!

Can I just say "adorable"? I doubt any of the three of them would appreciate that, but they are adorable together!

I think Q is kind of adorable all on his own. I should probably see that movie. (I've just been having a hard time with the levels of violence in some movies lately. Well, since I had a child.)

Thanks! I don't think Q would mind being adorable, but Sherlock and Mycroft would be very displeased. Q would probably just blush and tell you to be quiet, he's working.

I have a lot of trouble with violence in movies, and I found Skyfall okay. I'm trying to think of anything overtly distressing...there's a lot of running and hand-to-hand combat. A few gunfights. There is quite a large battle scene at the end of the movie, with a good deal of machine guns and explosions, but nothing very graphic. The most disturbing thing I can think of isn't actually violence, but the after effects of something that happened to the villain (we don't see it happening) and scarred him. His story is a bit disturbing, and there is a prolonged shot of his face where you can see...it's hard to explain without spoiling. It's gross, basically, but we don't ever seen it again, and I could give you a cue for when to look way if need be.

It will largely depend on what your brand of distressing is. I have trouble with suffering more than blood or gore. Aside from the scene above, there is no suffering. Just a few gunshot wounds, and a bit of blood.

Yeah, Brilliant Husband thinks I would be fine with it. Of course, to decide that, he had to go see it, which he did without me. He told me a lot about it, so I've been spoiled for bits. Especially M. (ETA: I asked for spoilers because I was reading crossover fics about it; they weren't unwanted spoilers.)

I watch superhero movies like The Avengers and Ironman 3, which are probably worse, but I find myself wishing some scenes were a lot shorter, and sometimes wishing I hadn't gone. But he likes to see movies with me, and we've gone to movies together since our first date.

We should put it on the Netflix list, and maybe move it up a ways—because right now, it would be something over 300 if we just added it at the end.

I haven't been to the movie theatre in about four years, because my headaches can't take the action. I even had trouble with the Avengers at home. My brother and I were discussing the trend of overly long movies, and decided that no action movie should be longer than about 90-100 minutes long. After that, it's just too much action for too long.

(ETA: I asked for spoilers because I was reading crossover fics about it; they weren't unwanted spoilers.)

Hehe! My dad and brother saw it in theatres and came home. The first thing he said through the door was 'They've killed [spoiler]!'

Your new layout is gorgeous!!! You won't see it once I post, but the pink text as I'm typing this comment is quite adorable. I might suggest maybe darkening the text color for the comments a wee bit, as it blends in with the comment backgrounds, but aside from that very minor thing, you have picked a wonderful layout, m'dear. Great choice! :)
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on August 25th, 2013 12:48 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I'm quite pleased with it, but I am going to fuss around wih some of the colours, the comments especially.

I have no idea how the text is pink when it's typed, but it's pretty damn cool I must admit.
