Just a Face and a Caption: Magic Librarian get usage counts

 1 Servbot, Sat, 16th Jun '12 9:24:02 PM Relationship Status: Yes, I'm alone, but I'm alone and free
Textbook case of JAFAAC. Little to no indication in the image that he's magical or a librarian, save for the photoshopped Magic: The Gathering labels that's saying "Look! He's a great example! Really!"

We have a nice collection in Image Links showing a whole bunch of magical librarians being all supernatural and librarian-y. Couldn't we use one of them instead?

I rather like the three below from Image Links:

Phyrexian Librarian

The Unseen University Librarian

This Ghost Librarian

The ghost librarian is the only one I prefer over the one up there now. People who don't know Discworld will just see an ape with a boo in the Unseen University one, and the other one is hard to see. A ghost looks magical, and the background looks like a library.

I like the ghost one too, for the reasons Animeg stated.

I kinda prefer Patchouli. [1], [2].
The Internet misuses, abuses, and overuses everything.
serial tweaker, sorry
[up] I'm not familiar with Touhou, and the second image to me looks like some girl who happened to be in a library when something magical happened. The first image is better, but I think the ghost librarian would be best.
please don't capitalize my handle. I just don't like it.
And the ghost is just pulling books out of a bookshelf which looks more like a private home than a library.

Though if she just happened to be there, why is she levitating? I also think it's clear she's the one casting the spell, by the way she's holding the book and her other arm.

I'm not where I can GIS right now, but there have to be some decent pics of Lucien that would work for this.
DON'T PANIC!
This picture of Twilight Sparkle isn't too bad either.

I support the pic in post 4.
Post #4 is the best by far.

[up][up][up] The link doesn't work.

Changed my mind and throwing my vote to #4 as well.
[up] It works for me.
Rhymes with "Protracted."

Sorry Twilight. Post 4 for me.

A couple more votes for #4 and we can run with it.

Image is up and tagged, with a variant of Rodney's caption for now.

Is that a book/short story/??? I'd say pothole the pic to the work and just leave the caption as "Image courtesy of [artist link]".

(To make links work nicely, do [[imageURL display text]].)

1 and 2 don't show the "magical" very well; it's small and blends in. I can't see a library in 4. 3 and 5 are okay, but I much prefer the ghost librarian.

@Willbyr: I've potholed it like normal now.

Looks good; locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
