Brain. Office Floor. Melted. Something about a moodset.
Spike mood theme: finished.

To give you an idea of why the brain meltage, I've been working on this verrückte thing since before Seeing Red aired. Several weeks before, since I stopped for a while during that huge upsurge of Spike-related Sturm und Drang.

Is here. Is available, provided you've got your own space to serve it from. Is also installed on my lj, for anybody who wants to see it in action. And my friends page, for variety's sake, though that'll soon go back to being everybody's individual mood icons.

Contains a smattering of images from Season 7, so spoil or don't spoil yourself accordingly. There's probably nothing you haven't seen on someone's userpic already, though.

Oh, and GIP!

I've uploaded them and made a mental note to update more often while feeling lonely devious or high.

And since MP's brain is currently a little puddle on the floor, I'll just point out to anybody reading this that you'll need to replace "pissed off" with "pissed_off" in "spikemoods.txt" for it to work.

Also that if you're too poor to pay for server space, you can use Geocities to host the images, because that's what I'm doing. You have to fool the server into thinking they aren't image files, by renaming "accomplished.jpg" to "accomplished.txt" etc. Since this involves typing the names of over a hundred images individually into little rename boxes on Geocities, it's only recommended for those who are obsessive fans of both Spike and MP.

Which, of coures, I am, because look at the pretty icons!

Grr arrrgh! I thougt I'd fixed that. Apparently only in my copy of the spikemoods.txt file, though, not the uploaded one. Sigh. Ah well. The correct version is up now. Sorry you had to make do with the banjaxxed one!

Thank you!!

You are an absolute goddess for making these!! I've been dying for a Spike mood icon set forever. Your crystal-clear directions made it a breeze to set this up (I only had to rename one pic "pissed off.jpg"-->"pissedoff.jpg" to make it work for me).

I bow down to your genius, mpoetess!
Many thanks,
Tia

*g* -- Glad you like!

(And sorry about the pic -- I should've known the one 2-word mood would give me trouble. For the record, it's supposed to be pissed_off in both the filename and in the text file. I managed to change my own text file, but not the uploaded one. But it's fixed now, for anybody who downloads it after this. Much help that'll be to you, of course.) :)

Wow, those are fantastic! And, um, fan-tastic. :-) Now I have to poke around & see about setting myself up someplace to host them from so I can use them! :-)

And I love your icon as well.

Thank you! (Of course, what Spike's pondering in my icon is "Why can I see my reflection in this TV?")

Great mood theme. As a Spike fan, I had to download it straight away. Thought I'd drop by and say thanks a lot.

These are adorable. And if I weren't so lazy, I might be tempted to borrow.

The "apathetic" one cracks me up--wasn't he getting a blow-job at the time? {g}

Wow! Mad P these are just brill. I've never even been tempted by a mood set before, but as soon as I wake up (should be round about next Thursday, *g*) I shall wrestle LJ into letting me use them.

Double delicious faves include:

Confused - Look at his little worry-wrinkled brow. Awww
Ditzy - hee hee
Discontent - "Bloody Hell, puppy for tea again?"
Mischevious - I giggle like a nit-wit whenever I even think of that scene.
Predatory - Mmrrrowwwlll!
Working - HAHAHAHAHAHA!

They are all just top. So much so that I shall probably rush off right now, holiday hangover notwithstanding, and try to work it out.

Oh, and by the by, is there a chance you could mail me a copy of the pic or cap that 'pessimistic' came from. Total spikehair slut that I am, that is gorgeous.

You rock more than a Big Rock!

And t'anks! (Oh hungover, jetlagged one)

Gosh, these are fabulous, and what a labor of love! I'm off to figure out how to get these images hosted somewhere so I can use them, because, wow. Great stuff!

mpoetess

2003-01-20 10:52 pm (UTC) (Link)

Thank you!

If I could spare the bandwidth (or rather, if zortified could spare the bandwidth, since it's her serverspace) I'd make them completely public and host them on my site. Sadly, I don't think we can get away with it.

These Rock!!

This is the first time I've been tempted by an icon set.
If I didn't love my silly lemonheads & wasn't so damn lazy . . .

Though I love your lemonheads too. Wink wink nudge nudge...

Oh, wow! Brilliant stuff :-) So, so appropriate. Hee!

Did you want to keep them for your site only, or is there any chance I could put them (with, of course, full credit) up on Spiked & Skewered?

mpoetess

2003-01-20 10:54 pm (UTC) (Link)

Thankee!

Feel free to take them for S&S, with my blessing.

This mood theme is fabulous! I just wanted to let you know that I'm taking, and thank you for making it. I especially got a kick out of your choices for "artistic" and "restless."

Ahem.

Thank you!

These are wonderful! I don't have a web-site to store them on so I can't use them *pouts* but I wanted to let you know how much I love them. They're absolutely perfect.

You really should do a Xander one too. I mean, he's so pretty, and you wouldn't want Spike to be lonely, now would you? ;)

2003-01-21 06:30 pm (UTC) (Link)

Thank you! And that sucks. I'd scout around and see if I could find an image sever type place, except those tend to either disappear or suddenly become pay services overnight, and I wouldn't want to host the icons there and then poof! everybody using them gets screwed if they vanish. Argh. I really wish Livejournal had their image storage system in place, that they keep dangling in front of us.
