IDK, I just fancied it. ;D

1. Your main fandom of the year?

Mass Effect? :D? Like I'm not sure what else I did this year, fannishly, apart from play all 3 games at [personal profile] carawj's house. ;D Granted I started last December, but still. (Mass Effect really deserves a post all its own and that may well come, I'm kind of in a DW mood at the mo.)

2. Your favourite film watched this year?

Ghostbusters. I went with [personal profile] spiderwolves and E, and literally, she and I spent the whole time clutching each other and soundlessly screaming, it was wonderful. (I'm actually struggling to remember what other films I saw in cinemas this year. I did enjoy the new Star Trek, but mostly cuz of how much the people I went with loved it. <3 Other than that *what other new films did I even watch, help*)

3. Your favourite book read this year?

This has been a rubbish book year for me, mostly see answer to question 1. *glances at goodreads* Like seriously, even the perpetual Vorkosigans re-read only got as far as 'Cordelia's Honour', which is always a contender for best book I've read any given year.

Although so saying, on closer examination of goodreads I am being unfair, I did discover Frances Hardinge in the spring, not to mention The Goblin Emperor. I think The Goblin Emperor or Gullstruck Island is my favourite book this year, actually.

4. Your favourite TV show of the year?

Supergirl, no question. <3 (Possibly also the only new TV show I watched this year...? IDK, I'm v tired as I write this and it's hard to remember things that aren't Mass Effect.)

5. Your favourite online fandom community of the year?

This has been quite an offline year fannishly in some ways, see question 1 again. So probably the Vidukon lot and smaller corners like me, the C's, [personal profile] tellitslant and [personal profile] sophia_gratia being cranky femslash old ladies, or [personal profile] beccatoria and [personal profile] chaila's Diana blanketfort of squee I'm a periodic visitor of. <3 Plus like, the fannish part of twitter is always a delight, too many people to list there. And like, lots of my fav fannish people are as much RL as online, which is still super great. <3

6. Your best new fandom discovery of the year?

...Mass Effect? :D (Technically 2015 but wow I had no idea when I started. I thought I did BUT NO.)

7. Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year?

Person of Interest. I haven't seen season 5, though I am VERY spoiled for it. It definitely sounds like it was great, and even my issues are redeemable and I know it's made lots of people so hapy but for me all the fix-it fic and openess of the ending don't make up for it being the dead lesbian straw that broke this lesbian camel's back. It was the one I had set my heart on not going for the trope, and then they did, and just felt so disappointed and heartsick I haven't been able to face season 5, and I can't really see myself doing so anytime soon.

8. Your TV boyfriend of the year?

Come again? (I mean, if I have to have one, can I at least say Garrus Vakarian or Lin-Manuel Miranda?)

9. Your TV girlfriend of the year?

I mean, if it has to be TV probably Alex Danvers or CJ Cregg, but I think we all know it's Liara T'Soni. ;D

10. Your biggest squee moment of the year?

Oh, gosh. *Finishing* Mass Effect doesn't really qualify, cuz while that was amazing, squee is not the word. (Though playing Citadel DLC might. ;D)) I think the Wonder Woman trailer in the summer ranks pretty highly though, I flipped my shit fairly epically about that.

Oh no. Oh wait. (This is how sleep deprived I am writing this.) How could I say anything else? So I never told this story on DW, just on Twitter, but I went to the US for two very dear friends' wedding (to each other) this summer and while in NYC I tried my darndest to go see Hamilton AND SUCCEEDED. So THAT WAS PROBABLY IT REALLY. (I also saw Fun Home and Colour Purple, which lacked the ridiculousness of my Hamilton tale, but were still incredible.)

11. The most missed of your old fandoms?

I dunno, actually. Which is probably good. I do like [personal profile] netgirl_y2k's answer about missing Terry Pratchett's voice this year of all years though.

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

I'm very happy with Mass Effect, thank you. ;D (Mind you, [personal profile] carawj is flirting with Critical Role, so given I'm still reeling from the last time she jumped into a new fandom, maybe that? I guess there's also Dragon Age.

Also it has now been like 8 years since [personal profile] cosmic_llin and I became friends (to the day on Facebook even!) and for 7 of those years she's been trying to get me to watch Voyager, so like, this is just mean at this point. Why am I even like this. We just don't know. And I even know I'm totally cutting off my own nose to spite my face, AND YET.

13. Your biggest fan anticipations for the New Year?

OK, so I basically filled this thing in for a) Mass Effect yelling but b) NEXT YEAR IS THE WONDER WOMAN MOVIE AND I A LITTLE BIT FORGOT TILL I READ [personal profile] netgirl_y2k's ANSWER. SERIOUSLY SELF PRESERVATION MEANS I FORGET THIS FROM TIME TO TIME AND OH MY GOD. Like. I can't help it, every trailer and image I've seen, every interview I've read just ramps my expectations up further, I did, at some distant point, try to keep them low, but BOY THAT SHIP HAS SAILED SO DAMN FAR, I THINK IT MIGHT HAVE LIKE, BECOME SPACE-WORTHY AND BE ON ITS WAY TO ANOTHER SOLAR SYSTEM.
