These are incredibly beautiful! I love your use of text. It's clean and it's always positioned very well. Great idea for the personification theme! My other favs are shadowed profile (the alts as well), cat 4-5 and ac 4-5.
The last alt is amazing!

Stunning icons! I was impressed by the badass!Willow icon you put into the whedon_elite challenge and I'm still impressed by all of these. Great skills!

No these are not "all over the place" in the least! Welcome to the comm, this is a wonderful set~

Personification is simply brilliant, and your Category set is superb - it does exactly what it's supposed to do, it tells us a story. The Climax icon is - I have no words for it. "Tell me to kill my sister" melting into the background? Barely there but it carries so much emotional weight and reminds us what Buffy was fighting for.

I love the way you turn "death is your gift" into "MY gift". I don't think Buffy says that but her actions do and it's a perfect twist. I also love Bright yellow, Flower, and AC 2 -4, most especially 4. Brava!

Thanks! I feel like they do not look like they came from the same maker, or at least from the same "batch"... Usually I stick to one style for each batch and these have so many different styles and techniques that I can of feel like I have multiple persoanlities... :P

I was a little nervous about the Category ones but I really like them.

Buffy does say it in a convo with Giles...

Buffy: The spirit guide told me, that death is my gift. I guess that means a Slayer really is just a killer after all.
Giles: I think you're wrong about that.
Buffy: It doesn't matter. If Dawn dies, I'm done with it. I'm quitting.

And just before she jumps she tells Dawn "Tell Giles... tell Giles I figured it out. And, and I'm okay." so I thought it was perfect for the last icon. :)

You've every right to be pleased with this set! I'll probably be referring back to it as an example when I make my own. Basically, you nailed the landing.

The spirit guide told me, that death is my gift.

*Slaps forehead* Damn, I hope this doesn't mean I have to turn in my "obsessive Buffy Summers fan and defender" card now? *lol*

Thanks again! That's a difficult challenge and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's take on it. :)

Lol! That's not necessary! I have somehow convinced myself that's the main quote. :P

At least your "headcanon" actually has canonical basis (unlike so many headcanons and interpretations I've seen over the last three years)

These are beautiful! I was going to list the ones I liked best, but there are so many that it would be easier to list the ones I didn't like as much, and I think that might be a case of poor etiquette. So, beautiful!

Thanks!

And I don't mind it... There are some icons that I'm not too proud of...

*coughs* Party *coughs*

I just got frustrated with some of my attempts and kinda gave up... :P

these are seriously gorgeous!
i absolutely love shadowed profile, bright yellow, the entire AC set, the shadowed profile alts, the last Willow alts, and the idea behind "personification"! i envy your text -- especially "fool," it looks so good, not overly sharp but still readable and you can tell who's behind it. love it!

The icons are super gorgeous (like seriously, I'm a little jealous at how gorgeous they are), but I am AMAZED by your category. The icons fit so well and your coloring and everything are just so pretty!
