Weekend Challenge: Feeling Moody

I'm hosting a challenge featuring mood boards at one of my landcomms this week, and it got me thinking how mood boards would be a great inspiration for fics or graphics. So here we are!

I have compiled 22 mood boards I've found from various places online. Give me a number or two and I will give you a link to your very own mood board(s). Use them in whatever way you want for inspiration — you can focus on one photo or color or quote, or go with a more general feeling or theme.

If you create something by the end of the day Thursday and link it here — either 200 words or a piece of art — I will reward you with a small ficlet or an icon or just by adding words to a WIP in your honor.


(I'm posting this after a super long day and I'm about ready to crash, so I'll most likely pass out mood boards in the morning. If anyone needs more time because of this, consider it granted.)
