 Pretty good end to 2016, I think.

Panto. Normal day, read a bunch of fic, didn't do much else. Went to a New Year's Eve party, found out that it wasn't, actually, a New Year's Eve party so we were a day early, and went home; cleared out a lot of my fic emails, read a bunch of fic, and worked more on my fic rec page on my sideblog. Answered some things -- two things for an end of year meme, and one thing about writing.

Talked to Leichelle, on tumblr and on the phone, for about half an hour right up until midnight. It was pretty good, we talked about hating our respective brothers for being bigoted and generally shitty. And other things. And the first thing I said in 2017 was "thank god, the hell year is over" because I am SO HAPPY IT IS OVER. Also, it snowed today! A lot! I love snow.

My mom says I should start doing gratitude, so I'm grateful that this hell year is over. Here's to a better 2017.

 I saw this? Figured I might as well, even if I'm a little late.

1. Your main fandom of the year?

I think probably Star Wars -- I got into it for the first time in my life (somehow) just over a year ago now, and for about eight months it was my singular obsession. Around August it was replaced with DC, but I think this year, overall, was much more of a SW year.

2. Your favorite film watched this year?

Oh... I don't know, hmm. Batman: Under The Red Hood is one of my new favourite movies, I think, and Watchmen, Batman v Superman, and Rogue One are all up there. I don't tend to watch a lot of movies, or remember the ones I watch, so I don't know for sure.

3. Your favorite book read this year?

I read... so much fic this year, and so few books. But I think... Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld (unexpected sapphic relationship!), Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo, or A New Dawn by John Jackson Miller.

4. Your favorite TV show of the year?

Young Justice, probably, which I just watched this year. Annnddddd Star Wars Rebels, which I'm still an episode behind on... whoops.

5. Your favorite online fandom community of the year?

Probably Star Wars? I'd say DC but the discourse has absolutely terrified me to the point where I will not say anything I ship, at all, and despite meeting some really lovely people, the fandom as a whole has fucked me up. Like, so badly.

6. Your best new fandom discovery of the year?

I... don't really understand the question.

7. Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year?

Uh. Probably The 100, back in the beginning of the year... *ugly laughter*. God, that was fucking brutal. I've never been so badly burned by a show before, and Lexa's death felt like a personal betrayal in so many ways. And I'm saying this as someone who barely ships Clexa -- I mean, I do, but it's not my OTP, I can't imagine how that must have felt for people who really, really loved the ship. As is, it made me suicidal for a week and I sort of gave up hope for WLW representation in TV.

8. Your TV boyfriend of the year?

...TV? Must it be?

If it must, probably Dick Grayson from Young Justice. I know it's animated. Still.

9. Your TV girlfriend of the year?


10. Your biggest squee moment of the year?


11. The most missed of your old fandoms?

Eh... when I'm doing single-minded focus on one fandom, it's hard to actually miss other fandoms. But I kinda missed Doctor Who, since no episodes and it got taken off Netflix so I can't rewatch. And I kinda miss Teen Wolf, but it's there, I just... don't care anymore. It's that single-minded obsession, and also depression. It's so hard to care about anything.

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

I lowkey want to get into Yuri On Ice, since I've heard so many good things, but I don't watch anime usually, and I'm a little worried that I'll lose my DC fixation before I can finish all the fics I have to read later. Not the best reason, maybe, but... it happened with SW, I was in the middle of things and lost interest when DC happened, so.

13. Your biggest fan anticipations for the New Year?

Justice League movie, Wonder Woman movie, more Star Wars Rebels, Orphan Black final season, Shadowhunters S2, Sense8 S2, and probably more.
