Fannish Favorites 2011  
I ... should keep a list during the year, that's what I've learned from this exercise. Short Memories R Us.

Also I just had the title of this post as 2010 for at least an hour before I caught it.

Your main fandom of the year?
Still BSG. Though it's getting harder with most of my shippers gone away. *sniff* Still kinda looking for a fandom that gives me the same draw ,though, and I still have things I want to finish.

Your favorite film you watched this year?
I've seen a lot of kids films. Tangled was my favorite of those. But wow, I don't see a lot of grown up films. Of the few I saw in the theater, I liked Source Code and X-Men First Class the best. And also I remember them, which is a plus.

Your favorite tv show of the year?
I have a short memory so hell if I remember last spring, but Person of Interest and Once Upon a Time are the new shows I'm following. Doctor Who S.6 was awesome. Justified.

Your best new fandom discovery of the year?
Although in some ways this should be Person of Interest since I'm more fannish than I expected to be, I also give props to Once Upon a Time which I honestly thought would SUCK and instead turned out very enjoyable. And this is also the year I got into Doctor Who which, while hardly new, or a new fandom for zillions of other people, was new as a fandom for me.

Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year?
Terra Nova. I had such high hopes for that. How could you go so wrong with dinosaurs?

Your fiction boyfriend of the year?
Anders is still the winner, though I think John Reese is interested in taking his place, but the mythology around him isn't deep enough. And David/James is also quite charming. (sorry)

Your fiction girlfriend of the year?
Snow/Mary Margaret from OUaT wins here, I think.

Your biggest squee moment of the year?
That frakking fantastic Hobbit trailer. And probably something earlier in the year which I've forgotten.

Your biggest fan anticipations for the coming year?
OMG 2012. DARK KNIGHT RISES (will be awesome), PROMETHEUS (please be good! I will cry if you suck). THEN THE HOBBIT (will be awesome).

I'm also looking forward to checking out Alcatraz, and if they ever freaking actually show it to us, Awake. DW S.7 of course.

I'm anticipating but also a little bit worried about season 2 of Fairly Legal mostly because I don't know how they're working Justin back into the story and I'm concerned

I'm kind of ... written out, I think. I did so much so quickly for Yuletide (and the BSG holiday fic, and something long for fandom-stocking which isn't even out there yet) that I have no mind for writing at all. I thought about treats for YT Madness and couldn't think of anything. ugh. hopefully I recharge or whatever soon.

I nearly forgot it was this year - feels like forever since it came out!

I like OUaT but I don't think about it much when I'm not watching... other than to wonder if I'm going to like the writers' long-term plans. (Okay, and to wonder if the writers have a long-term plan.)

I think about it more than I do light but predictable procedurals like Castle but yeah, it's pretty frothy right now. I think they must have some sort of idea of how they intend to shift the premise - I'm sure the network also wondered how it could be ongoing before it was picked up -- but how that'll happen , we'll have to wait and see. I'm definitely enjoying the ride though (and a LOT more than i thought I would , since it seemed like the dumbest idea EVAR when I first saw stuff about it!)

I hope you keep writing - your Sam is delicious.

Oh i'll def stay for awhile. Both cuz I have WIPs and cuz theres still no fandom that grabs me as hard. but I do miss the days when k/s was small but active.
