Giles/tea vid and icons

Today was my posting day at summer_of_giles, and my contribution was an icon set dedicated to my favourite Giles pairing: Giles/tea. Here are some teasers; the full set is behind the cut below.
g . g.

This isn't the first time I've made a tribute to this particular pairing. I also made a vidlet about it, back when (SPOILER) Giles died in the Season 8 Buffy comics. (Don't worry, he's alive again, though a bit changed, see icon 18.)  Here's the vid, aptly named TEA. Then, on to the icons!

Here is the full summer_of_giles icon set:

1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9
10 .. 11 .. 12
13 14 15
16 17 18

Of course I also made lots of alternative versions. Here are a few of them:

1a 6a 8a
9a 13a 13b

I had actually meant to enter 8a into whedon_elite challenge #121, but apparently I made a mistake converting the deadline to my local time, and so I missed it. Gah!

- In icons 1, 4, 9, 13 and 15, I used textures by colorfilter that were kindly provided to me by red_satin_doll. Many thanks to both!
- For the table I used the icon table generator from http://icontable.morning-songs.com/

I love them all to pieces!

Almost as much as I love tea

Thank you!

A perfect compliment! And how wonderful is it that you have a matching icon?

I always try to, which is why it makes me sad that people don't make them so much these days.

Icons aren't used on Tumblr, I fear.

Thank you! Both for the praise and the additional cups of tea -- I am having another one right now :-)

And apparently you weren't there for the fun when I messed up the making tea process.

Oooh, actually I remember that from when I was only a lurker on LJ! Obviously I didn't comment then, but that can be remedied now.

And had you noticed that AO3 doesn't have a "Rupert Giles/Tea" tag?

It's an outrage!

OMG such wonderful artwork! This may just be my new OTP, lol! ;)

Is it possible to kink tea, because I think I do!

Thank you, glad you like it!

This may just be my new OTP, lol! ;)

But, but... what happened to Giles/guitar?! Which reminds me --

These are excellent! We all know that all his romances were doomed because ultimately Giles's true love would always be tea.

Thank you! And you are so right. Giles and tea are destined to be :-)

Very fun vid! *g*

Thank you! I've always loved that song and this was the perfect opportunity to use it.

Great Video: Tea!
I have a simple sentence to state regarding this, only three little words: "I love this!"
You are flat-out brilliant!

Re: Great Video: Tea!
Thank you very much for your kind words! I'm blushing with all the praise. So nice to hear that you liked my vid!

I love these! I'm saving a few and will credit when they go up. My favorite is #17 - spilled tea, dead Giles, right?

Thank you, it's nice to hear that you like them! And of course, snag away. Good to see they will be joining at least one other lovely tea icon :-)

spilled tea, dead Giles, right?

Got it in one!

Haha, I think I might retire this icon to replace it with one of yours. I need to always have one tea icon, but probably won't find much use for two. (And I need a Giles anyway.)

Snagging 4 and 12 :)
Nov. 12th, 2015 09:58 pm (UTC)
Please snag away, glad you like them.
