End of year fandom meme

Stolen from [profile] shinyjenny

1. Your main fandom of the year?

I...didn't have one. Huh. I flitted so much between different things, which may explain my tiny, tiny fanfic output. There was the usual background hum of Doctor Who and Star Trek, both of which exploded into OMG SQUEE at various times through the year, and then there was the joy of Supergirl and Alex/Maggie, and the beauty of Bernie/Serena on Holby, and a dozen other little fandoms I floated through.

This was definitely the year my fannish butterflyness was strongest.

2. Your favourite film watched this year?

How can I choose? HOW? Top three? Star Trek: Beyond, Ghostbusters, and Rogue One. I loved them all, for very different reasons.

3. Your favourite book read this year?

This one, strangely, is easy. If I can only pick one, it's The Obelisk Gate by N. K. Jemisin.

4. Your favourite TV show of the year?

So hard to choose. Again. If we're talking "shows that had new episodes this year", it's a tough pick between Supergirl, Holby City, and Call the Midwife.

5. Your favourite online fandom community of the year?

Er...the community of people I've found on Twitter? Does that count?

6. Your best new fandom discovery of the year?

I feel like I re-discovered shows I already loved (Supergirl, Holby) more than I discovered new fandoms. I found the fandoms for those shows, I guess.

7. Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year?

Honestly, fandom was the one place where I didn't get any major disappointments. All the books I'd been looking forward to were great, all the TV and films I'd been anticipating lived up to my hopes...fandom was the one place that didn't turn into a trash dumpster fire in 2016.

8. Your TV boyfriend of the year?

Henrik Hanssen. Shut up :-)

9. Your TV girlfriend of the year?

I cannot choose between Alex Danvers and Bernie Wolf and you can't make me.

10. Your biggest squee moment of the year?

The news that we'd officially be getting a new Star Trek telly series. FOR REALS. Or getting a Star Trek movie that was really great. Or that moment when I came out of Ghostbusters over the moon. Or maybe Nine Worlds, the whole of it.

When Alex and Maggie kissed.

When Bernie and Serena kissed.

When Delia and Patsy reunited.

Apparently this was the year when all my f/f ships were awesome and ON SCREEN IN FRONT OF ME.

2016 had so much fannish squee, when I think about it.

11. The most missed of your old fandoms?

DOCTOR WHO. But we get a Christmas special in four days and a whole series next year, so the drought is nearly over.

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

Hmm, I haven't got any. Mostly because I've flitted around so many fandoms and I can't cope with any more right now.

13. Your biggest fan anticipations for the New Year?



The last book in the Broken Earth trilogy. New books from KJ Charles that sound amazing. Worldcon in Helsinki. I think 2017 is going to be rather filled with fannish squee :-)
