There's a wide range of 2012 and 2013 icons here (some I love, some I hate), and you can hover over each icon to see when it was made. In an attempt to keep things organized, everything's been split up into the community's different chapters and quests. Fandoms are also listed for each, since there are so. Freaking. Many. Fitting considering I watch too many things for my own good. I also tacked on my icons from an incomplete battle that was going to be submitted to iq_coliseum.
Looking forward to 2014 and starting anew with iconning!

My original intent was to inspire myself to max out on submissions so I came up with five categories to represent five aspects of the adventure motif: a story (Disney), imagination (fantasy), equipment (weapons, transportation, etc.), leaders (my focus was on badass women) and character growth. I never actually ended up making any icons for the 'fantasy' section, but there's at least one for the other categories.
Main Quest - Mentors
Fandoms: Lost, New Girl, Nikita, Once Upon a Time, Pushing Daisies, Revenge, Teen Wolf
At first I wasn't sure who to pick for this quest, since I'm generally inspired by every icon and maker out there. Ultimately, I chose a few makers whose techniques were very distinct, and I thought it'd be fun to give their styles a whirl while incorporating my own.
34-35 inspired by boxed
36-41 inspired by endearest
42-50 inspired by longerthanwedo
51-54 inspired by motorized
Side Quest - Decorative Accents
Fandoms: Teen Wolf
Side Quest - Tokens
Fandoms: Game of Thrones, Veronica Mars
Main Quest - Paths
Fandoms: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Lost, Nikita, Once Upon a Time
I opted for the Go Crazy or Go Home option. This was the quest I was most excited about working on and completing, because I wanted to go crazy and have a lot of fun with my compositions and text. Sadly I only got a few icons done. :( But I am, for the most part, proud of what came out of it.
UNDERAPPRECIATED FANDOMS BATTLE
Fandoms: Dexter, Dollhouse, Episodes, Friends, Grimm, Happy Endings, History of a Salaryman, Modern Family, Pushing Daisies, Revenge, That '70s Show, Veep
ionizable and I decided to do an icon battle dedicated to fandoms that just don't get enough love. We chose a few common fandoms, and then I chose five fandoms she didn't follow and vice versa. We started this last December and still never got around to completing it. Yes, it's true, we fail. I only listed fandoms for the icons I completed, but there were so many other great ones (and caps) we decided on that I didn't finish making icons for.
These were all made in March 2013.
