I know I haven't been posting much, but it wasn't for lack of reading/watching things.

Your main fandom of the year?

I'm as usual polyfandom, but I paid the most attention to Harry Potter and Marvel (comics and MCU)

Your favorite film you watched this year?


Your favorite book read this year?

Probably The Hunger Games trilogy. Katniss is kickass!

Your favorite album or song to listen to this year?

Female Tribute To Tom Waits- I've had it playing on the background pretty much constantly. I find Tom Waits' music and lyrics fantastic, but his voice can be a bit too much for extended listening, so this was a welcome discovery.

Your favorite tv show of the year?

Ooh, hard to say. I greatly enjoyed the second seasons of Game of Thrones and Homeland, and Melin's final season was the one I was arguably most emotionally invested in. If we're going for shows I haven't watched before, it's a toss-up between Once Upon A Time and Downton Abbey.

Your best new fandom discovery of the year?

Well, I LOVED Avengers, but I wouldn't call it a new discovery, as I was already a massive Marvel geek. So my answer is Elementary. I haven't mentionned it before, but I adore that show so much more than I expected. I love that it's a Holmes adaptation where the dynamics don't make me cringe, love the dynamic between the leads, and of course the stellar performances by Liu and Miller.

Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year?

Avengers vs X-Men. The premise was kind of stupid to begin with, but the execution had me grinding my teeth. On the other hand, it left me feeling more sympathetic for Cyclops than I have in YEARS, which hilariously seemed to be the opposite of the writers' intent.

Your fandom boyfriend of the year?

Joss Whedon! It's been a while since I was in such awe of something he did (I actually really liked Dollhouse, but was never especially fannish about it). After he did justice (and then some) to The Avengers, it reminded me my old motto of "Joss is God". And I know many disagree (often for valid reasons), but the man got me into fandom, and will always have a special place in my heart.

Close second: Sheldon Cooper. Even though I'd probably choke him if I knew him IRL, he's my spirit animal!

Your fandom girlfriend of the year?

Ooh, hard to pick. Arya Stark, Natasha Romanov, Carrie for Homeland...this year had no lack of women being badass! I'd probably chose Natasha, since she'd be the one I'd want watching my back in the event of an Apocalypse. Arya is still too young and Carrie too likely to go off into one of her tangents.

Your biggest squee moment of the year?

There was a spoilerish moment in the end of the Dexter season premiere that left me fairly breathless, though unfortunately the follow-through didn't live up to it. The entirety of Avengers, but especially anything relating to Natasha (love is for children).

The most missed of your old fandoms?

Seeing Kristen Bell at the Gossip Girl finale (and what in the name of hell was THAT mess?) made me realise how much I miss watching Veronica Mars. We need more Veronica-like characters. I miss how MASSIVE and vibrant HP used to be. Reading Marks' Buffy and Angel reviews made me realise how I miss...everything about those shows.

The fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to?

I want to watch The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad and even (old news) The Sopranos, but the violence is making me a bit reluctant (I'll get there I'm sure). I want to see what this Teen Wolf everyone is going on about is. And I want to read some DC.

Your biggest fan anticipations for the coming year?

Star Trek!!!!!!! Also the Thor, Captain America and Iron Man sequels. In TV, I'm especially looking forward to Game of Thrones and Mad Men.

I think you're right about that. I should talk about it too, really ;-)

AVEEEEENGERS!! I wanted to watch my Avengers dvd yesterday, and then it wouldn't play: vlc kept crashing. I hope it's vlc and not my dvd; will have to test other dvd's/different version of Ubuntu.

I am reading A vs X now - it's not as good as Civil War, certainly.

Happy New Year!
