20 icons of Chin Ho Kelly from Hawaii Five-0 for Round 96 at character20n20. I decided to do Chin this round because I wanted to do a tribute to the character after learning he would not be in season 8 of the show. (I also did a 20in20 for Kono over here.)

(In Angel's Head)
Notes on my choices:
1. Season 3 of Angel is my favorite, for a few reasons. It's the last season with the group intact as I prefer it (a.k.a. Cordy is still there, the show has Fred on it, and the main cast is working for Angel Investigations instead of Wolfram and Hart). Plus, it's the best season for my favorite ship, which I'll talk about in a bit.
2. I have very simple tastes. Everyone getting dressed up for the ballet and seeing Angel and Cordy get to make out made this a favorite episode for me.
3. Cordy is an aspirational character for me, and she's my number one favorite character. She's stunningly beautiful, hilarious, an awesome hero and way more confident than I am even on my best day. She's also a go-to for me when I make icons of Angel, because seriously, look at how pretty her face is!
4. I love this broody vampire and relate to him way, way too much. Of anyone in the Buffyverse, my personality is probably most like Angel's (with touches of Fred as well). And I love this particular moment for him, which is basically the entire point of the show (and I've also adopted Angel's "epiphany" as my personal life philosophy).
5. I love how close they got in season 2, because I hadn't been expecting that. I do wish that there hadn't been a love triangle with Fred, because it negatively impacted their friendship. Also, these guys are super slashy and I ship them as well. I also thought about iconning Cordy and Fred here, because they're really cute.
6. One of my favorite ships in the history of ever and why I'm involved with fandom for this show in the first place. It's one of the best and sweetest friends-to-lovers stories I've ever seen, and it's the heart of Angel for me. Seriously, I can't get enough of these liferuiners.
7. Darla was awesome and her history with Angel made her a compelling antagonist. Plus, I thought her reaction to coming back as human was really interesting. Lilah would be my choice for runner-up in this category.
8. Okay, so Angel isn't human (and I picked him for 4), but I specifically love the non-human aspects of Lorne's character. (Though, he is one of the most "human" characters in the figurative sense of the word.)
9. Bethany Chaulk was pretty memorable and compelling for a character who only appeared in one episode, and I was interested in seeing her fight with her personal demons and learn to control her powers in "Untouched." This icon is of the scene where she kills her abusive father, which was her shining moment.
10. Anne is great. She embodies the ethos of the show, and she had wonderful interactions with Gunn. I wish we had gotten to see more of her.
11. Connor is Angel and Darla's angsty teenage son! How can I not love him? On a more serious note, there are some things I wish hadn't been done with his character (like the Connor/fake-Cordelia ickiness), but I like Connor and think he gets unfairly hated sometimes.
12. I think my opinions on Angel episodes aren't very out there in fandom terms, but I did see someone online talking about how they disliked this episode for the mystical pregnancy plotline (which was used multiple times in this show). But that plot line worked okay for me here, and I liked a lot of stuff in this episode (Cordy drinking blood, interactions of the main characters-- especially Angel and Cordy, the cuteness in the last scene, and the fact that it was a Cordy-centered episode). I generally have a fondness for season 1 episodes, even if some of them are arguably kind of clunky in terms of plot (like She).
13. The ultimate culmination of Cordelia's heroism, and one of the most BAMF lines ever. Plus, right before she decided to become a demon, she looked straight at frozen-in-insanity-pain Angel, so it was a great moment for my ship as well.
14. Season five is so hard on me. :-( I love Fred, and I didn't want to see her die, damn it! My runner-up for this category would be Cordy's death (mostly because the passing of my favorite character hurts too), but ultimately the episode with Fred's death was more gut-wrenching and brutal than "You're Welcome."
15. To be fair, I haven't seen as much of BtVS as I have of Angel, but I feel more of a personal connection to the themes, characters, and relationships on this show.
Category Icons: Since the category was open to interpretation, I decided to go with the development of Angel and Cordelia's relationship over the course of both shows, which was my favorite storyline of all. I tried to pick moments that were meaningful, adorable, or showed good chemistry between them. For the first category icon, I picked that Bronze scene from "Halloween," because it was adorable how Cordy made Angel smile like that. For the second one, I picked that moment because it showed how Cordy trusted him (plus, the fact that she flung herself into hugging him while he was still in vamp face makes me go "awwww"). For the third one, I chose an important scene at the end of "Epiphany" which also had a ton of chemistry. (Seriously, look at how close they're standing!) For the fourth one, I picked that scene because Angel was obviously jealous of Cordy and the guys at the gym and it was hilarious (plus, again, proximity). For the last one, I picked a good moment from the fourth season since my icon for 6 used a screencap from "You're Welcome." I generally love "Awakening" for all the good Cangel moments and the brilliant insight into Angel's POV on things, and forehead touching gets me every single time!
