    I can't upload my random theme entry now, as imageshack, in a characteristic display of annoyingness doesn't let me upload at the moment for some strange reason. Fuck them, I've taken enough shit from them, I'm stepping over to picasa. Advice to everyone: don't use imageshack.

    Nah, I think that it's okay I just like the angle in mine (Kira shooting at an innocent old man:devil:) so I would like to keep it.
    I think that you avatar is fine, as long as no one else uses the same scene as us...

    Also I love apenpaap's theme avatar, a definite winner!

    Just one question on the Random Theme...can it only be sci-fi / fantasy written before the 19th century? Or does it just have to be SET before then?

    From Civil Defense. Just got done watching that episode. Hopefully I didn't misinterpret what the theme meant. XD

    That's strange, for me they appear normally. Can anyone else not see my avatars?

    Cool! :)

    Good to see you again, welcome back! :)
    If I understood Marie correctly it would be ok to use anything set before the 19th century. I don't think it has to be written before that time.

    Welcome to the contest! And you understood the theme correctly. :bolian:

    They seem to show up like they are supposed to now. :)

    Welcome to the contest!

    Good to see new people entering, Crimea River and Odo You Didn't! :techman:

    I didn't see 'Progress' 'til I had the first season on DVD, and immediately loved it, thanks to the relationship between Kira and Brian Keith's Mullibok.

    Correct! Glad someone understands my long-winded descriptions...

    And I can see apenpaap's avs too!

    I'm gonna try and work on this contest, but I seem to be losing my mind at the moment... probably not a good idea...
