Once Upon a Time Mood Theme - Season 3 (UNFINISHED):  


1. As a future warning, if you use the coding for the Admin Console, change the file type to .GIF, NOT .jpg or .png or else it will not work.

2. Change the width and height to 100 x 60.

3. Please credit etherealnetwork.

This covers parts of Season 3. There are single characters as well as groups/duos, so I hope there's a nice variety for you all.

The reason I'm posting this unfinished (there are only 60 moods in here as opposed to 132) is because the show isn't what it used to be for me - I've lost about 95% interest in this show. Season 3 ruined this show as a whole for me and while I started to like it when it came back after the hiatus, I quickly grew frustrated with it and I had (and still have) NO desire to finish it. However, I don't want all my work to go to waste, so I'm simply posting all of what I did and I'm going to leave it at that.

You can also mix the first two seasons in with this one for a "complete" set, which you can find here:

Season 1
Season 2

If there are any problems, please feel free to ask and I will assist you the best way I can.

To upload the mood theme to your journal faster try these instructions from crackified (under the cut for your convenience) for a much faster result, or put the link in one by one - totally your choice.

Here are some examples of what they look like:


Accomplished Artistic Bouncy Busy Cheerful
Confused Cranky Cynical Determined Flirty
Gloomy Horny Intimidated Loved Touched

Using the Admin Console

1. Download the zip or rar file for the mood theme you want, and unzip it in winzip or a similar program.

2. Then upload the mood images to your domain, or an image hosting site like Photobucket. If you're using Photobucket, I suggest you download Flock, which allows you to upload images in batches. Do not change the file names.

3. Go to the LJ admin console.

4. Now, in the text box, paste in the following:

moodtheme_create "Title of Theme" "Short Description of Theme"

Of course, replace the "Title of Theme" and "Short Description of Theme" text with the title and description. They can be anything you want, as long as you remember the title, because you'll need it for later. Once you're done, click "execute". If you're successful, the console will give you a number. Copy down this number!

5. Now go to the "adminconsolecodes.txt" file; or you can go to crackified's instructions and she has a version for download but you need to edit it a bit more). Using the "replace" tool in your notepad program, replace the 12345 number with the number the console gave you previously. Also replace the "http://www.hosting.com/" url with the url to the folder that stores the images on your domain, or the photobucket album. Make sure that the height and width (100 X 60) for each mood image is entered correctly, otherwise it will not look right. Also, make sure the file type is .gif, NOT .png or .jpg!!!

6. Now, paste in the edited codes into the admin console, and click execute. You should be directed to a page with your accepted codes. If not, go back and re-do the steps again.

7. Now go to your customize page. If you're using s2 (if you don't know what that means, then you probably are using s2), go to the "Customize Selected Theme" button on the bottom right of the page. There should be a "Mood Theme" section on your new page - underneath it, there is a drop down menu. Use the drop down to find your new theme. Save changes.

If you're using s1, simply scroll down your customize page until you find the "Mood Themes" section. Use the drop down to find your new theme. Save changes.

And you're done! Your theme should now be up on your LJ.

Sometimes with Photobucket, if your link exceeds 100 characters, LJ won't let you upload it, so often enough it's best if you upload the moods to another website OR even your LJ Scrapbook, which has smaller links than Photobucket.

Using the Custom Mood Theme Editor

1. Download the zip file for the mood theme you want, and unzip it in winzip or a similar program.

2. Upload the mood images to your domain, or an image hosting site like Photobucket. Do not change the file names.

3. Go here. Underneath "Create a New Theme", enter in the name of the mood theme you are about to upload. Click the create button.

4. Now you need to use the URLs of the mood images that you uploaded earlier. Enter in the appropriate URL for each mood section. Make sure that the height and width for each mood image is entered and correct (100 X 60). Also, make sure the file type is .gif, NOT .png or .jpg!!! When you're done, click on Save Changes at the bottom. And you're done!

5. Now go back to your Mood Theme Editor. Your new theme should be included on your list of mood themes. When you find it, look to the right of the mood icons and click on the "Use" button. Save changes, and your mood theme should be up on your LiveJournal.

Lovely work! Coloring gifs is so hard and you did a great job coloring these. :D Snagging it and will probably switch a few out from the s2 mood theme to this one.

Thank you hon! (Sorry, had to edit my original comment because I read yours wrong. LOL)

Anyway, enjoy if you can! :)

Thank you for sharing what you had done so far. I'll mix it with the one you did for Season 2. I'll of course credit in my profile.

Thank you, hon! Enjoy! :)

Really nice gifs =)
Sorry to hear you're so disappointed in the show you "cant" even finish the MoodTheme but believe me, I know the feeling all too well...
The Nikola Tesla Protégé: I Love Lucytardis_mafia on May 26th, 2014 07:34 pm (UTC)
Thank you.

It is a shame I'm not even willing to continue. Watching just clips of the show would infuriate me to no end.

Well, I will take some of these to switch out some of the others at abc_onceupon. Your credit tag will remain firmly in place in the comm's sidebar.

You're not the only one who is disappointed with the path the show is taking. I'll keep watching though. I stuck it out with House for all 8 seasons and I figure OUaT can't get as bad as House did. Can it?
The Nikola Tesla Protégé: Red: Bluetardis_mafia on May 26th, 2014 04:59 pm (UTC)
That is much appreciated hon. :)

This show had all the potential in the world and they threw it away for their crappy plot lines and making Hook into the hero he's never been, but that's a whole other rant all together. LOL

Anyhow, I never watched House, but I suppose if you were able to stick it out there, you can stick it out in Once. :) I will still keep track of the show, but only for Red, Regina, Robin, and Tink. I care about Rumple, Belle, and Ariel too, but my core 4 characters are the ones I love most of all.

Lovely mood theme. ♥ I'll mix and match from all three season with credit for you if I use if that's alright.

I certainly agree about the direction of the show. I still haven't watched the last few episodes of the season. I'll probably watch sometime but for now I'm just not interested.
The Nikola Tesla Protégé: Belle/Rumpelstiltskin: Bluetardis_mafia on May 26th, 2014 05:55 pm (UTC)
Yeah no problem! I've got a mixture of shows in my mood theme for my regular journal, so... :)

I stopped watching a full episode right around the time when Rapunzel came onto the show, but not because of her. I just found the show getting boring and predictable, and I have a big hatred for certain aspects of the show that really wore me down.

Thank you, hon! :) I was on a roll for a while, but then, well, you know what happened...

These are stunning. I'm going to download all three seasons and select my favorites from them. I think it's time to add a new mood theme. :)

We've talked about your feelings and you know we're in agreement. I know I'll give season 4 a chance, but season 3's finale almost broke me. But for the summer, I'll be enjoy a summer hiatus filled with OQ fluff and OQ smut. *nods* That I will.
The Nikola Tesla Protégé: Ichabod/Abbie: First Episodetardis_mafia on May 26th, 2014 11:48 pm (UTC)
Thank you, hon! :)

I won't be giving next season the full chance, but I will keep up with it on Tumblr. And now on this hiatus, all I can really do is wait for anticipated shows and read fanfic. Hell, it's what I've been doing!
layla_aaronluscious_words on May 27th, 2014 01:48 am (UTC)
Fanfic is helping me get through this hiatus.
The Nikola Tesla Protégé: Regina: I Never Cared Until Nowtardis_mafia on May 27th, 2014 01:52 am (UTC)
Fanfic of another show is helping me out, and doing some icons I guess. The only Once fics I'm reading are OQ angst ones because apparently I need some pain!
layla_aaronluscious_words on May 27th, 2014 01:55 am (UTC)
I've been reading OQ fics that are attempting to fix/remedy the mess, while waiting for my in-laws to leave so I can write my own OQ fics. I'm writing some that are pre-season finale and will be working on some that come during and after.
The Nikola Tesla Protégé: Regina/Robin: Usernametardis_mafia on May 27th, 2014 01:57 am (UTC)
Yeah I've read maybe one or two of those, though I have two that I'm waiting to see updated with a hurt Regina and a protective Henry who's mad at Emma. And I think there might be an oblivious Robin who then comes to his senses and wants to make things right.
layla_aaron: Regina 1 - OUaT (me)luscious_words on May 27th, 2014 02:03 am (UTC)
I'm even working on a Fairy Queen fic that is Tink's POV and her reaction to the scene in the diner.
The Nikola Tesla Protégé: Tink: Try Believing in Metardis_mafia on May 27th, 2014 02:05 am (UTC)
OOHH! I look forward to that. I love Tink - she's one of my top 4 favorite Once characters, and I do wonder how she sees this. She sees Regina happy after taking that leap of faith only to have it blown up in their faces.

*waits patiently*
layla_aaron: Regina 2 - OUaT (me)luscious_words on May 27th, 2014 02:14 am (UTC)
I love Tink, as well, and was shipping Fairy Queen before Outlaw Queen. It's going to be posted in a femslash calendar in June, and this reminds me that I need to check when it's scheduled to post. LOL
The Nikola Tesla Protégé: Tink: Choose Lovetardis_mafia on May 27th, 2014 02:16 am (UTC)
Dawww. FQ is adorable. I only ship them as BFFs, but they're still cute as hell as a couple.
layla_aaron: Regina/Henry 1 - OUaT (me)luscious_words on May 27th, 2014 02:29 am (UTC)
*nods* I love them as BFFs, too. This one features a drunken Tink, a bottle of rum, a punch thrown at Robin, and a conversation between Regina and Tink.
The Nikola Tesla Protégé: Tink: Colorfultardis_mafia on May 28th, 2014 02:00 am (UTC)
LMAO Love it!
layla_aaronluscious_words on May 28th, 2014 02:05 am (UTC)
I just realized I need to adopt or make some Tink icons. :)
The Nikola Tesla Protégé: Tink: Profiletardis_mafia on May 28th, 2014 11:37 pm (UTC)
You must rectify this situation...
layla_aaronluscious_words on May 28th, 2014 11:45 pm (UTC)
I'm currently trying to write a story from Roland's POV for a landcomm challenge. *sigh*
The Nikola Tesla Protégé: Regina: Resilient Hearttardis_mafia on May 28th, 2014 11:46 pm (UTC)
Oh my! How's that going? Digging inside a small child's mind?
layla_aaron: Robin Hood 3 - OUaT (me)luscious_words on May 28th, 2014 11:48 pm (UTC)
It's interesting. I've hit a stalled point. I need a minimum of 1000 words, and I'm at 585. The deadline is tomorrow at 11 PM.
The Nikola Tesla Protégé: Robin: Sexytardis_mafia on May 29th, 2014 12:01 am (UTC)
Yeah that sounds pretty challenging, writing from a toddler's perspective on his daddy and I'm assuming Regina's - and looking at Marian? I wouldn't even know how to begin.
layla_aaronluscious_words on May 29th, 2014 12:03 am (UTC)
It's how he views Regina - the summary I selected was Roland Hood misses his mommy, but the pretty lady who saved him from the flying monster makes him happy, too. I just have to figure out how to get out of the current spot. :)
The Nikola Tesla Protégé: Regina/Robin: Purpletardis_mafia on May 29th, 2014 12:07 am (UTC)
Awww! That kid must be so confused! Good luck writing this. I seriously wouldn't even know how to start this.

Here, have an adorable Roland icon to make you smile:

Jakie: [ouat] outlaw queen walking awayladygj on May 28th, 2014 02:52 pm (UTC)
I'm going snag this (and season 1 and 2)! :)

I understand how you feel about the show, and I share some of it (as you know). I'm sticking with it because there are still enough storylines drawing me in, so I'll be there to update you on OQ (and if they ever decide to have a Red-centered episode again -- which I doubt but we can always hope).

Also, completely unrelated but I need to tell you, I started watching Sleepy Hollow. I'm only on episode 3, but SO MUCH LOVE. I really like it! :D
The Nikola Tesla Protégé: Ichabod/Abbie: Pilot Eptardis_mafia on May 28th, 2014 11:40 pm (UTC)
Enjoy, my dear!

I'll definitely be here to listen on your updates regarding OQ and Red. I doubt we'll get another Red episode, but I hope we get one anyway. I might actually watch again.

YES! Another fan! I'm so excited for this! I made a Sleepy Hollow mood theme if you ever wanted to use it.

And just think, by the time the episode you're on aired, Sleepy Hollow got renewed for a second season. :D The show was just that good to people. I just hope S2 doesn't suck the life out of the show. I can't handle another show of mine tanking.

Edit: The theme for SH might be a bit spoilery. Sorry! (I forgotted.)

(Random update: Red is going to be in my next fic! Because I was missing her too much. ;D)

I'm going to watch more of Sleepy Hollow tonight! (And I'll look at the mood theme when I'm done with the season haha.) From what I've seen so far, I'm not too worried about season 2. Their writing team seems strong. I have faith, so fingers crossed that it keeps your interest. :)

There are only two shows so far that I've completely dropped and lost faith in before the end. Revolution (back in the middle of season 1 so it doesn't really count in my head because I wasn't invested in it) and House MD (that broke my heart and I tried so very hard to stick until the end but couldn't, and I refused to watch the finale of season 7 and the last season).
The Nikola Tesla Protégé: Red: Bluetardis_mafia on May 30th, 2014 02:12 am (UTC)
YES! My wife bby girl! I do miss her so muuuuch!

W00t! Can't wait to see how you like the rest of the season! :D Maybe now I can have someone to fangirl over the show with! (Yeah... I forgot my own mood theme was spoilery, so sorry! LOL)

So many people, I've heard, hated House after a while. I'm glad I never got into it. It just wasn't my thing. Medical dramas usually aren't.
