This is the time I do end of year memes, apparently

Fandom year in review meme, snagged from green_maia.

1. Your main fandom of the year?
Still Dragon Age, although I'm doing more and more with MCU all the time. Final Fantasy and Cinders continue to simmer in the background as well.

2. Your favourite film watched this year?
Of the films I've seen that were released this year, probably Catching Fire. 

3. Your favourite book read this year?
The Spiritwalker Trilogy by Kate Elliott. I'm working on a co-review of the last book, Cold Steel, with [personal profile] renay, so I won't say much more now, but seriously, so recommended. Also Fangirl and Republic of Thieves.

4. Your favourite TV show of the year?
Of shows currently airing? Either Elementary or Mad Men. The last season of Breaking Bad was up there, too, and I had a great time catching up with Parks & Recreation. 

5. Your favourite online fandom community of the year?
In terms of time spent, it has to be Tumblr. But I have such a love-hate relationship with the place.

6. Your best new fandom discovery of the year?
I didn't "get into" any new fandoms this year, although I did devour a bunch of new content, mostly television shows. I wrote ficbits for Fringe and Sherlock, have happily meta'ed about both those shows as well as Sleepy Hollow and Elementary, and I have serious 'ships for Fringe and Parks & Recreation, but I wouldn't consider myself "in" those fandoms. Sleepy Hollow's fandom looks like the most fun of those to participate in. We'll see how the show goes.

7. Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year?
I wouldn't call them big disappointments, but I wanted to love Iron Man 3 and Man of Steel more. I enjoyed them both as I was watching them, but the more distance I get, the more I notice their flaws. Also Agents of SHIELD -- although I feel like the show got slowly and steadily better (until the most recent episode anyway), I know a lot of people disagree, so there hasn't really been any fandom activity around that to speak of.

8. Your TV boyfriend of the year?
Ben Wyatt from Parks and Recreation. And I am so invested in Ben/Leslie, I can't even tell you.

9. Your TV girlfriend of the year?
Four-way tie: Abbie Mills, Olivia Dunham, Joan Watson, and Leslie Knope. So many awesome women on my TV screen this year!

10. Your biggest squee moment of the year?
*Spoiler redacted* in Thor: The Dark World. If you've seen the movie, you know exactly what I am talking about.

11. The most missed of your old fandoms?
Final Fantasy X/X-2, as usual. I even replayed the games in hopes of recapturing my old momentum, but it didn't quite happen. I hope the HD rerelease will help.

12. The fandom you haven’t tried yet, but want to?
I'm not sure. Too many options, not enough time.

13. Your biggest fan anticipations for the New Year?
Captain America: Winter Soldier, with Dragon Age: Inquisition a very close second. Give them to me I want them nowwwwww. (Although with DA:I it's almost as much about how tired I am about the spoilers everywhere. I still have 11 months of this to go?) Also looking forward to the FFX/X-2 remaster, the last season of Mad Men, the next FogCon (Seanan McGuire is a GoH!), the Kiss Battles as always, and Sherlock Series 3.

  • FogCon7: Day 2 & 3

    I have returned! Yet another successful FogCon: in the books. Probably jamming two days into one post is too much, but no matter how much I tell…

  • FogCon7: Day 1

    It's actually now the end of Day 2, but last night I was out and about and doing stuff, and I haven't had many opportunities to sit down and take…

  • Hmm

    My WIP triage didn't turn up much to work on next. Just one story really, a Hawke in DA:I epic that's way too big to finish in one month. I don't…
