    from the movie timeline, where peeps go back to the 1300s.... wasn't quite happy with it, so i decided to jump on the qpid bandwagon...

    .... and decided i didn't like this one either, but i love that cap of john delancie :P

    so yeah, i'll decide what to do later.

    one thing i love/hate about this av competition... you get so long! on ASN we usually only get a week for all of our icons and sigs.... and for all the games and requests i do, that's like three icons and seven sigs a week :P XD

    Tough to choose between them but I slightly favour the second one.

    I love the episode for the same reason. And for Kira's struggle with her new role. That's what I love the most about DS9 - they had plenty of character development! :bolian:

    "Hell, Yeah!" :)

    That's a lot of icons and sigs. :eek: I usually make 6 avatars per fortnight; 3 for this contest and 3 for the voyager avatar contest.

    Once upon a time we used to have 5 days to enter and 3 days to vote but about a year ago some forum avatar contests changed into a longer entry period so more people would have time to enter. :)

    Random theme: For lack of inspiration I'll enter this Xena av (unless I come up with something else later on):

    ^ I think I give about a week for the FC avatar contest... well, I mean to, but then I like to wait for more entries...
    So plus I always wait til the last minute, so I <3 the extra time.

    The contest is more challenging and fun if there are more entries so I like the extra time as well. :bolian:

    I like the first one better, too. I think it really captures the spirit of the episode.

    Man, I've been having a LOT of trouble with the Random Theme. My two favorite time-travel books have NO graphics whatsoever associated with them.

    (Eifelheim by Michael Flynn, and Pastwatch: The Redemption of Christopher Columbus by Orson Scott Card.)

    I ended up going with Dante's Inferno. While a believer, it is very obvious that Dante was writing from his own imagination, so I count it. I offer this avatar, artwork by the wonderfully talented Gustav Doré.

    ^ We'll get quite a diverse random theme category this week! :D

    arasam, if you choose to go with any of the random theme avatars you've posted I think you should go with the second one!

    There are three days left of the entry period.

    Not the scene I was going for, but I couldn't find anything in the one I was thinking of that showed "history" per se...

    Given my recent posting history it would make a great nickname, Thor 'random theme' Damar:rommie:.
