I made an animated gif!

happy

I can't believe I was actually able to make a gif. ::beams:: I'm very excited. Since I've been playing around with icons, especially Forever Knight, I like the possibilities that animated gifs open up icon wise. This experiment is a rather impractical length and size for an icon but right now who cares.

For my maiden attempt I decided to animate the Nick/Nat scene from the tag of "Dark Knight: The Second Chapter" in which Nick and Natalie discuss the possibilities of Nick becoming human again. Nick does this ultra adorable swing and a hug around Natalie.

NICK: Do you think you can really bring me back over?
NATALIE: Well, all we can do is keep trying.


Aside from being ultra cute I like the contrast it presents to the Nick we saw throughout most of the episode--intense, private, and even a little scary. It excentuates Nick's playful side and that's something I truly appreciate. NIck's a complex guy and underneath all that intensity is a man worth knowing and saving. Plus, seeing Nick's lighter side is always welcomed.

I watched the premiere of Crusoe tonight. It was remotely interesting and it reminds me a lot of the 90s fantasy and genre shows that used to air in syndication. Only Crusoe isn't a fantasy and it isn't a genre show in the way television views the word genre. I'm also surprised that I lasted the two hours because aside from the Presidential debates I really haven't sat in front of a TV for more than an hour lately and even that's been somewhat sporadic. It's also the only new show of the Fall TV season that I've watched. That's not from a lack of interest the crop of news show but fear that I'll get attached and the show will be cancelled ala Journeyman or New Amsterdam.

Aww how cute. :-)
I managed to re-watch 2 of my favourite FK-eps. yesterday evening, 'Stranger than Fiction' and 'Night in Question'. So sucked me back into fandom. Wish I´d have more time to dedicate, too.

Yes! That's right come back to the Knight. We're all waiting for you. ;)

Wish I´d have more time to dedicate, too.

Finding time is hard for me too. It's been a while since I've seen a complete episode. I keep wanting to re-watch the entire series again but that's too tall an order right now. So sad.

Oh, I do so love seeing FK on my flist.

They're both so gosh-darn pretty! I adore those cutesty friendship moments between them in S1.

Me too. It's one of my most favorite aspects of the show and one of the main reasons why season 1 is my favorite. They were a nice balance to the angst and I really missed those moments in the following seasons.

And OMG I totally adore your icon. You captured that scene beautifully. :-)
